Daniel Schweiger Temp Music Specialist
About

Daniel Schweiger has specialized in assisting music editors assemble temp tracks for over two decades, beginning at Segue Music before moving onto Modern Music, and then joining the editors at Formosa Music. Daniel is also well known in the film scoring community as a soundtrack journalist, a field in which he interviews composers and reviews their work. He also moderates film music events and writes liner notes for several soundtrack speciality labels – all of which enable him to gather material, reach out to composers, and provide a copious knowledge of scores and how they can be used to provide the most seamless temp tracks for a stylistically wide range of projects.

“For me, the most creative part of the music editing process is helping editors create temporary soundtracks. The film becomes a template to try out numerous scores and styles with the goal of exploring and supporting a director’s vision, as well as creating a shorthand for the composer to understand what kind of score the director is looking for. When creating a temp score, a thorough knowledge of film scoring tastes both current and historical is a vital and important tool, one that is of particular interest to me, given my life-long love of film music.”
