Sequential Artist Spotlight Interview with JONATHAN HARTMAN

You can find the interview on Sequential's website here.

"Jonathan Hartman is a musical polymath, an accomplished composer drawing upon the traditions of film music, jazz, synthesis and 20th century minimalism to create compelling scores for film and television. He’s gained a reputation for his absolute commitment to communicating the heart of character and story to musically express the beautiful, the arcane and the profound.

Jonathan began his musical journey in the Jazz world. His grandfather was the Master Engraver at King Musical Instruments whose artists included Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. A young saxophone prodigy, Jonathan began performing professionally at age 15. His mentors included jazz greats Joe Lovano, Clark Terry, and James Moody. Jonathan was heavily influenced as a young composer by the string writing & postmodern sensibilities of Igor Stravinsky, Villa Lobos, and minimalist Steve Reich.

Jonathan was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for his original score for DARK/WEB (Amazon Prime). The dark cyber thriller was a deep exploration into cutting edge analog synthesis. A complete bio for Jonathan can be found here. We chatted with Jonathan on how he uses the Prophet Rev2 in his music."
