Bonnie Janofsky is one of those multi-skilled musicians that seems to be able to turn her hand to absolutely anything.
Originally coming from a performance background, she’s then worked as an orchestrator, arranger, transcriber, and composer.
We’re going to talk about some of the advantages and disadvantages of working with notation and composing for real musicians rather than sample libraries.

Bonnie hasn’t taken the approach of many film music composers in that she’s focused more on scoring for real musicians rather than with sample libraries. If you listen to samples of her work you’ll hear that it’s full of really interesting instrument combinations.
One thing that’s particularly great to listen for in Bonnie’s work is how well the music is arranged for a small number of players. I think a lot of people really overlook how hard it is to get a small group of instruments to create such an effective sound.
