The Devil and John Debney

The Devil and John Debney

The composer of the score for The Passion relates his daily battles with Satan as he tried to complete it. His computers kept crashing and all kinds of other weirdness went on until one day John Debney had had enough and challenged Satan to go mano a mano. I wouldn’t recommend that, by the way. Just call on St. Michael to do the work for you; he’s always itching to take on the bad guy.

Debney also talks about what it was like to watch this movie every day, the spiritual journey he went on, and the inspirations for the music.
