Mark Mothersbaugh, the co-founder of Devo who has scored films and television series for more than 25 years, will discuss his recent work with director-writer-producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller at the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Music Conference.
They will speak on the first day of the two-day conference, Nov. 5, being held at Universal Studios’ Globe Theater.
Mothersbaugh has composed music for five films in five years by Lord and Miller: The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street and the two editions of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.
They first worked together on the animated Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, which Lord and Miller directed and wrote. The duo produced the sequel, released in 2013. Lord and Miller directed 21 Jump Street and its sequel, 22 Jump Street.
Mothersbaugh made the leap to film and TV in 1986 when he started scoring the Saturday morning favorite Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. Among his films are Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and Hotel Transylvania; most recently, he scored the TV series House of Lies, The Carrie Diaries and Enlightened.
