How We Make Our Music With Composer Dan Tepfer

March 26th, 2015

This week, Debra heads out to visit musician and composer Dan Tepfer, one of her most frequent collaborators on The Culture Crush's short film work. Some of the most beautiful scores are original improvisations Dan has recorded in his studio, on the road, and even at The Culture Crush studio, where, of course, there is a piano.

They discuss the changing music industry, the relationship between music and comedic improvisation, and Dan even plays a few tunes of his own. Just off touring with Jazz legend Lee Konitz, Dan took a minute away from working on his latest symphony to sit down with Debra and discuss their working process and some of their favorite projects so far.
