Discovering Fil Eisler.
On July 23rd, 2016, the world got a sneak peak at the newest addition to the Star Trek franchise in the form of a trailer for Star Trek: Discovery. Rarely has one minute of footage been met with such anticipation. Along with images of our newest hero ship, we were treated to a magnificent audio piece composed by Fil Eisler.
In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Andy Farber, composer for Star Trek Continues, to discuss four scores on which Eisler has worked, and to speculate on what approach he might take should he be chosen to score the new series. We also try to determine whether or not synth scores become dated, and if the main title for The Terminator was an influence on him.
