Attack of the Killer Soundtrack - Episode 50

This week we welcome our special guest - Austin-based singer/songwriter Bob Schneider. Bob has been making music since he was a kid and has spent the majority of his adult life writing songs and playing live all across the country. So join us as we discuss the changing Austin scene, working with director Robert Rodriguez, recording his live shows out on the road, what he likes to watch on Netflix and the special trick to getting your songs on a string of movie soundtracks.

And as we’re clued in on the finer points of Leave Her to Heaven, we also bring up…Ypsilanti, South by Southwest, Alfred Newman, worked at a country club, I got some recognition from the ladies, El Paso, I feel like it’s pretty easy to make things complicated, and the music was insane, It was something my dad did, filming and editing video, I think of songs like solvable problems, a great way to capture this unique event, this is where I shine, the Sandra Bullock soundtrack collection, Germany, she’s weird… she doesn’t even look human, The Great British Baking Show, they just handed me a video camera, backed him up on drums, it really leveled the playing field, that was straight up nepotism, if you ever want to just treat yourself to something interesting, I just drew all the time, music especially… is such a huge part of the emotional… compass or whatever… in a film, CalArts, a $1000 cap on the budget, the cool thing about playing music when you’re 4 and 5 years old – you don’t have to be very good, dream of becoming an opera singer, it should be almost invisible, I enjoy making things, a string section on every track, the way they incorporate the soundtrack, the internal sense is that I’m great, studying voice, this is where you should cry and how creative can you get?

“…which kind of gave it this sort of cinematic quality to the music… it made it very dramatic sounding and lush. And I was like, ‘Oh this would be great music… as a soundtrack’.”
