Interview: Brian McOmber (It Comes At Night)
Brian McOmber’s resume as a composer may be quite recent â the vast majority of his work having come in the last three years. However, his musical career is much longer, having performed as the drummer for the Dirty Projectors from 2007’s Rise Above through 2012’s Swing Lo Magellan. He’s come to greater attention over the summer for his score to the Trey Edward Shults thriller, It Comes At Night. Digitally, the score was released concurrently with the film, and it’s as tense a listen as the film is a watch. It’s out today on vinyl, via Milan Records, so we spoke with McOmber via Gchat about his compositional process.
