Carter Burwell has been writing music for movies for decades, beginning with the very first Coen Brothers feature, Blood Simple, in 1984. Since then, Burwell has collaborated with the directing duo on nearly all of their projects, including the upcoming The Tragedy of Macbeth. He has earned two Oscar nominations, for Carol and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and he won an Emmy for scoring the HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce in 2011.
Now, Burwell is making the transition to episodic television with The Morning Show on Apple TV+. ShockYa had the chance to speak with Burwell about the differences between the process of scoring film and TV and his many memorable compositions over the years.
