Peter Himmelman Quotes
I've actually been doing it since 1982 when I did the soundtrack to a friend's student film. The worst possible thing for me as a musician — or even as a human being — is to wake up without anything to create, and by create, I include, cooking or conversing with friends (not only making music or other overtly artistic inventions). So, when these opportunities arise to score films or TV shows, I have historically always jumped at the chance to do them.
Without a doubt, I like writing albums (and performing better) but maybe that's because I see it as a break from the scoring stuff. The albums are exhausting in a way and like I said, I think the balance between the two is important. One thing to note is that I'm always entirely consumed by whatever the challenge is at the time and that's what's so pleasing about what I do for a living. It doesn't escape me, that what I do (records, scoring... performing) is so fun, I would probably pay to do it. (Please don't tell my agent).
