If you know me, you know a bat-nerd. I grew up on batman, I have seen the franchise through good times and bad (1997 was excruciating). That said, I was very stoked on Chris Nolan’s retooling of the series with 2005’s “Batman Begins” and with the release of the second Nolan helmed film this July my excitement is nearing fever pitch. So this is a warning if you will, there might be a slight bias towards “The Dark Knight” in the next couple of months. I might damn near post any and everything sound related for the film including up to the three interviews I am trying to do with “TDK” sound folk. So to start the ball rolling I submit THIS LA TIMES BLOG, an interview with the two composers returning to Nolan’s Bat universe, Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard. Please don’t fault me for the addiction, if there is a Batman Anonymous, I’ll join.
