Notably Disney

Composer Joseph Trapanese Interview (”Lady and the Tramp,” “TRON: Legacy”)

February 16, 2021

In just over the past decade, Joseph Trapanese has made his mark in Hollywood with electric scores, orchestrations, and arrangements for popular films. Very notably, his orchestration for TRON: Legacy, composed by Daft Punk, has been recognized by the film community as one of the best scores in recent years. He is the composer behind Hollywood hits including Oblivion and Only the Brave and co-composed The Great Showman with John Debney, a past Notably Disney guest, among handling other scores. For Disney, he has also composed the score for the television series TRON: Uprising and the 2019 iteration of Lady and the Tramp. His experiences are vast in such a relatively short period of time, and it’s always dynamic to listen to his scores. Joe discusses all of this and more with Brett Nachman on this episode of Notably Disney.
