Composer Tom Hedden - 75 Seasons Suite (Ep. 101) | The Annotator | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

In this episode, composer Tom Hedden revisits his now-classic music from the NFL Film's documentary, "75 Seasons: The Story of the NFL." Hedden shares how he came onto this project, even being chosen over more prominent Hollywood composers. He reveals how he wrote for descriptions and not to picture ... and how this greatly impacted the final music suite.  Hedden also discusses how and why he used the 5/4 rhythm for a particular section, the personal reason why he chose to include the bagpipes and which section of the orchestra had the greatest challenge with the piece.
