At the Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman gig last week, my friend asked, "What has Trevor Rabin been doing for the last 20 years?" Oh, he never tours any more, I said (pretending to be an expert), he's a film composer now. Then I realised I didn't have a clue what films he had worked on.
So I just checked his discography, and let's just say none of them have been blockbusters . The only one that stood out is this one:
It's an interesting composition. Rabin says his favourite composer is Arnold Schoenberg, and you can hear the Second Viennese School influences here.
But even knowing it's Trevor Rabin, it's not a piece of music I would choose to listen to. I rarely listen to film soundtracks, as I think they don't really work without the image beats they're designed to match.
