A Chat with Garry Schyman, an Award-Winning Composer of Film, TV, and Video Game Music

Nov 7, 2018

Our guest is Gary Schyman, an award-winning composer of film, TV, and video game music -- including the "Bioshock" series of video games and the more recent "Torn" virtual reality game. Schyman is currently visiting the TU campus, working with film scoring and computer gaming students. He tells us about how his career began in the television scoring industry, working on classic 1980s shows like "Magnum P.I." and "The A-Team." He also speaks about his far-ranging experiences scoring films and video games, working with various studios and orchestras. Also on our program, commentator Connie Cronley is thinking about the Equal Rights Amendment, which dates back to the 1970s. Only one more state needs to pass this amendment in order for it to become federal law; on this Election Day, Connie wonders, could that one state possibly (someday) be Oklahoma?
