NEW YORK — Bleeding Fingers Custom Music Shop (www.bleedingfingersmusic.com) held its launch party recently at Soho House in NYC. The company is a joint venture between Extreme Music, the production music arm of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, and Academy Award-winner Hans Zimmer’s and Steve Kofsky’s company, RCI Global LLC.
Zimmer and reality show producer Mark Burnett attended the event and took some time to discuss their collaborations on The Bible and The Contender.
"Music is indefensible," says Zimmer. "Either it resonates with you or it doesn't. And if it doesn't, what's the worst that can happen? I get a chance to write another piece of music. Isn't that what I set out to do in the first place? So, it's all good."
Housed in a brand new facility in Santa Monica, The Bleeding Fingers Custom Music Shop will focus on creating show-specific libraries and scores for unscripted, reality, documentary and light drama television productions. The company has already scored shows such as Survivor XVIII, Boston’s Finest, Duck Dynasty, Mountain Men, Hatfield’s & McCoys: White Lightening, Catfish, True Life and The Men Who Built America.
