DANIEL PEMBERTON GETS NOD FOR SCORING “STEVE JOBS”
By Alice O’Neill
Pemberton’s first comment: ‘Wow! I just got nominated for a Golden Globe – that is proper bonkers! I’m so honored to be nominated with my musical heroes. I wanted to ‘Think Different’ in how I approached this score and working with a cinematic visionary like Danny Boyle meant I could. Since STEVE JOBS was brilliantly written by Aaron Sorkin in three acts I took three different musical approaches, so Danny got three scores for the price of one – Bargain of the year!” —Daniel Pemberton
More of the story:
Pemberton was able to get involved with the edit and work very closely alongside Danny Boyle in order to achieve a unique score. Directed by Danny Boyle, Steve Jobs stars Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, and Seth Rogen. “Steve Jobs” is currently in theaters and the soundtrack is available from Backlot Records.

More on Daniel Pemberton:
Pemberton also recently composed the critically acclaimed retro-rock score for Guy Ritchies’ The Man from U.N.C.L.E. He is excited to bring another original and distinct sound to Steve Jobs. Pemberton stated “I seem to specialize in scoring films that don’t want to be scored in an obvious way. Steve Jobs is similar in that respect – it’s unique and you have to find a way to deal with that.”
Named 2014’s “Discovery of the Year” at the World Soundtrack Awards in Ghent, Belgium, Daniel Pemberton is a diverse and multi-talented composer. He is an Ivor Novello Award-winner and has been nominated multiple times for the prestigious BAFTA Awards. Pemberton scored Ridley Scott’s 2013 crime-thriller film The Counselor starring Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, and Michael Fassbender, as well as Scott’s TV project The Vatican. After self-releasing an avant-garde electronic album at the age of 16 and garnering attention from Massive Attack’s label, Pemberton began composing for British television while still in high school. Pemberton’s soundtrack credits include films such as The Awakening and In Fear, and he has scored video games including Little Big Planet 1 & 2, and the second highest selling Xbox game of all time: Kinect Adventures.
