David Holmes on Ocean’s Thirteen

An interview with David Holmes about his work on Ocean’s Thirteen

David HolmesOcean’s Thirteen is out today and earlier this week I was fortunate enough to meet up with David Holmes who has scored the music for all of the 3 films starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.

Since coming to prominence in the 90s with such acclaimed albums as This Film is Crap Let’s Slash the Seats (1995) and Let’s Get Killed (1997) he came to the attention of director Stephen Soderbergh.

He was then asked to do some music for Out of Sight (1998) and three years later to score the remake of Ocean’s Eleven (2001). That collaboration was so successful that they re-teamed for Ocean’s Twelve (2004) and now Ocean’s Thirteen.

I spoke to David about his work on all three films, what he wanted to achieve with this score and how music from films has been an influence throughout his career.
