In an exclusive video below, Holkenborg talks bringing together disparate musical cues and genres to create Deadpool’s synth-heavy signature sound.
On this video snippet, Tom Holkenborg (Junkie XL) reveals how he created the movie’s funky, arrogant, playful, violent music score.
Who is Tom Holkenborg?
Holkenborg, the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum producer, musician, and composer, got his start in the big beat scene of the late 90s, went on to be the first person ever to officially remix an Elvis Presley song, and now finds himself on the forefront of modern film scoring. From his bombastic, drum-filled Mad Max: Fury Road score to his creeping compositions for the Johnny Depp-starring Black Mass, Holkenborg creates daring new takes on traditional movie compositions.
