21 Questions: Brian Cachia [Composer]

Brian Cachia [Composer]
 -Tell us about your career and what you are currently working on or involved with?
I started out as a drummer, moved into the recording studio and mixing engineer world, music production and then made the transition into film scoring. I am currently working and collaborating with exceptionally talented visionaries who push me everyday to raise the bar.

-Is this what you thought you would be doing with your life, what was your first passion?
I knew I'd be doing something a little out of the ordinary, although let the truth be known I wanted to be a pro skater! when I told my father he looked at me with a puzzled look and said 'you should play music'! Shortly after that time I realized I could loose myself behind the drum kit and maybe I could do this for a job? My knees and bones are thanking me now, and father is proud.

-To whom do you credit your success to, who gives or gave you the most support?
Father! always pushing for me to achieve what he was unable to.

-If you could meet or work with [living or dead], who would that be and why?
I would love to have been a student of M.C Escher, the way he changed the rules of perception with his art was awesome.

-What would you like to be remembered for 100 years from now?
Hopefully I'd have inspired somebody and produced some great work

-Who inspires you?
Music inspires me, when I hear an album I love, my blood boils with the excitement of possibilities.

I have one more year of ammunition under my belt!


-What is the last song you bought or listened to in your musical device?
Well an hour ago I bought an album by 'My Brightest Diamond' Bring me the Workhorse' before that I bought a copy of the 'Suckerpunch' soundtrack so I could hear me drumming on a few of the tracks! (very lame I know)

-Last good film you had seen, and the best movie you would recommend to someone asking?
Black Swan was the last great film I saw recently, I would recommend it for sure.
