Bruce Gilbert Featured on Wall Street Journal
Bruce Gilbert and his work on Orange Is the New Black were featured on the Wall Street Journal!
Bruce gives details about the creative freedom he’s allowed as a music supervisor, the approach to this particular show, and his collaboration with Jenji Kohan. He also created a playlist [left] of his favorite songs from the first two seasons.
“The show’s soundtrack comes together in a rather collaborative way, typically with Gilbert steering the ship and taking input from writers and creator Jenji Kohan. ‘I work a lot by feel,’ he says. ‘I feel like the emotion of what’s happening in the story determines more than anything. It was revealed early on that we had a lot more freedom because of the diverse, dynamic cast and the little vignettes that cut back into their lives before prison.’”
