YouTube Series ‘Studio Time with Junkie XL’ Announced
May 22, 2015
Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL is launching a new YouTube tutorial series, Studio Time with Junkie XL. The series will give aspiring composers, producers, and musicians a rare glimpse into the inner workings of a Hollywood composer. The tutorial topics will range from technical advice, such as string and drum arrangements, to programming tips and advice on how to channel your musical influences. The project is an extension of Holkenborg’s previous teaching experience as an associate professor at ARTEZ, the Dutch music conservatorium where he developed and taught a four year music program based on all of the elements of his career. The composer’s film scoring credits include Mad Max: Fury Road, Divergent, 300: Rise of an Empire, Run All Night, as well as the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Black Mass and Point Break. He is also currently creating new themes for EA Sports’ NFL video game franchise Madden ’16. Studio Time with Junkie XL is set to launch on Tuesday, May 26, 2015 at youtube.com/junkiexlofficial.
