Perhaps one of Jorge Murcia's best qualities is his compositional range. I've heard his demos and orchestral scores, and was impressed. He told me he also had a proficiency for classic/latin folklore guitars, similar to that of Gustavo Santalaolla, and I sought him out for my project. He delivered a beautiful soundtrack. Working with him, he is creative and also listens well. The combination of listening to a director's notes as well as his natural talent and intuition for musical cues and film scoring make him one of the best musicians I've worked with.
Interview with Jorge Murcia
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I have composed music or short films that specialize in a latin taste of cultures and sounds. I am now composing for a film in a R&B Gospel style. Most of what I have done is in the thriller, Sci-Fi realm of music.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love the work of Ludwig Goransson because he infuses multiple cultures and textures in the sounds he creates. Pat metheny has a Lyricism to his music that touches me.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is in my apartment. I have a computer and interace that send to some powerful Yamaha Studio Monitors. My sample libraries include: Hans Zimmer Strings, Hans Zimmer Percussion Profesional, Albion One, Native Instruments' Thrill, Addictive Keys, Arturia Pro Analog Lab, and all the Logic Native sample Libraries.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If I am composing to picture, I love communicating with the directior to absorb the emotional impact the directior is wanting from a particular scene or cue. Then, I hear in my head certain soundscapes that could compliment that story. This gives me a starting point and then I almost always stray from that inicial plan to find sounds and combinations o instruments that are better for the scene than I expected.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The story is the most important thing. Any composer, producer, performer's job is to bring that story to the forefront. In essance, to be invisible.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the feeling I get when something gets me. When I feel the music tell me what it wants to tell me. It usually manifests itsel with a big smile and goosebumps.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A feature film called StickUp Kid. It is streching my writing abilities as I have to infuse south gospel sounds and 90s Rap style beats.
