Heitor Pereira & Smurfs 2 – FilmTracks Ep. 21 (Audio)

Andrew Alderete August 15, 2013 0

Stepping into Heitor Pereira‘s studio was an amazing experience.  With over twenty guitars in a side studio in addition to an amazing workstation, I knew I was stepping into a room with an eclectic musical history.  With his most recent work being the score of The Smurfs 2, we talked about a variety of subjects including his relationship with Hans Zimmer, his musical background, and his overall ideology of what film composing is all about.  It’s a fascinating look into an excellent musician and film composer.  Enjoy!
