Cliff Martinez (Composer, percussionist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee)
discusses his recent scores for "Den of Thieves" and "Game Night." After spending much of the 80s drumming for Captain Beefheart ("Ice Cream For Crow"), The Weirdos, The Dickies, Lydia Lunch, Jim Thirlwell and Red Hot Chili Peppers (the Andy Gill-produced debut and George Clinton-produced "Freaky Styley"), Cliff turned to film and tv composing, first for "Pee-Wee’s Playhouse" and Steven Soderbergh’s debut "sex, lies, and videotape," and then Soderbergh's "The Limey," "Contagion," "Traffic," "Solaris" and "The Knick" as well as Nicolas Winding Refn’s "Drive" and "Neon Demon" and Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers," incorporating his custom-constructed mammoth steel drums, gamelan metallophone and Baschet Cristal with electronics.
