Bryce Jacobs: Adventures With A Guitar

To introduce Bryce Jacobs as a movie composer - even as a talented musician and composer - is only telling half the story. Not only does he write and perform distinctive film soundtracks, working on some seminal Hollywood movies alongside the likes of Hans Zimmer; not only is he a talented musician constantly exploring the crossover between classical orchestral music, the guitar and electronic effects; but on top of all this he’s a devoted advocate of the guitar as a versatile, underestimated instrument, having developed his own unique 12-string guitar based on the range and capabilities of a piano, to overcome some of the guitar’s traditional limitations. We talk to this truly multi-talented musician about challenging misconceptions around the guitar, its place in film scoring, his own passion for movies, and the difference Exponential Audio has made to his work.
