BAFTA Masterclass: Cliff Martinez on Composing

BAFTA-winning and Grammy-nominated composer Cliff Martinez discusses his creative process and career spanning 25 years across film, TV and games.
As drummer for Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and later for The Dickies, Martinez’ exploration of new technologies eventually led him to film scoring. After his experimental tape landed in the hands of Steven Soderbergh, he was hired to score Soderbergh’s directorial debut Sex, Lies, and Videotape. Since then, the pair have worked together on ten films including Traffic, Solaris and Contagion.
More recently, Martinez’ credits include Drive, The Lincoln Lawyer, television series The Knick and game Far Cry 4, for which he received a BAFTA.
