“He is Everything,” boldly states a friend of ours about comedian Louis C.K.. The extremely popular off-beat comedian has been slaying audiences with his dry humor and twisted wit since his hit TV show Louie first aired in 2010, but it isn’t all about the comedy.
Last week, Fast Co. Create published an interview with Louie’s by-chance music supervisor, Matt Klimer that opens, “Although it isn’t often viewed on the same level as directing or screenwriting, original music is still an essential part of crafting a memorable film or TV series.” Additionally noting that “Music has turned out to be a large part of [Louie’s] appeal.
Klimer, a Berklee educated percussionist, dishes on what it’s like to work with Louis, the importance of communication and talented musicians, how to aurally capture the image of New York, and how to properly open and close a sitcom. You can read the entire interview here and watch back episodes of Louie’s highly anticipated return (that aired from May 5-June 16) online.
