Craig Armstrong interview for Park Circus

He’s written scores for films as diverse as Moulin Rouge, Plunkett and Macleane and The Incredible Hulk, but Glasgow-based composer, Craig Armstrong, has also collaborated with director Peter Mullan on all of his films since 1993’s Close.

To celebrate the release of Mullan’s first feature on DVD, 1998’s Orphans, I interviewed Armstrong for Park Circus’ blog. We discussed his close working relationship with Mullan and some of his other projects, including the latest Justin Timberlake sci-fi, In Time.

I was also recently able to interview film director/critic/scholar, Pierre Rissient, for the Park Circus blog, when we discussed his work on 1969’s La Piscine and his recommendations for forgotten classic films.

Here’s one of Armstrong’s best known tracks, ‘Escape’.
