In addition to sharing my specific experiences as music editor for THE SIMPSONS, I also describe in detail the job of music editing itself. When I meet people for the first time and answer “music editing” when asked what I do for a living, I often get that half-smile and semi-nod usually followed by, “Oh, you write the music?” Um, no. My job is a little difficult to sum up in one or two sentences. The simple explanation I give most often is, “the composer is the creative guy who dreams up the music, I am the technical guy who makes sure it gets into the show on time and in sync.” Thankfully for me, there’s more to it than that but that answer usually does the trick. If you’d like the detailed version of what music editing is all about, then click here and read through my “seven steps of music editing”. The blogs are posted in reverse order, so scroll to the bottom, click on “Older Posts” and start with “The Music Spotting Session”. Thanks for giving it a try and leave me a question if there’s anything more you’d like to know.
