Danny Boyle talks music

In a 20-minute conversation with WNYC’s Soundcheck host John Schaefer, Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle talks about the roots of music in his films, like Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, and new one Trance.

Known for using pre-existing songs, Boyle doesn’t use a music supervisor and selects tracks himself. “It’s one of the deepest pleasures for me. It helps shape the film in so many ways, [beyond] just the music. It informs the film completely for me,” he told Soundcheck’s John Schaefer. “I’m very proud to be able to associate myself with these artists via film.”
