“The Frame” host John Horn sat down at the piano with Academy Award-nominated composer, pianist, and producer Nicholas Britell

KPCC In Person and “The Frame” invited audiences to join us for an intimate, hour-long conversation with the innovative composer. Britell talked about scoring for film, and also played selections from his own compositions and his new films: “If Beale Street Could Talk,” an adaptation of a James Baldwin novel directed by Barry Jenkins, and “Vice” directed by Adam McKay.

Britell studied piano at the Juilliard School’s precollege division and later graduated from Harvard University. His previous film scores and composing work include Jenkins’s Oscar-winning “Moonlight,” McKay’s “The Big Short,” and Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave.” He reteamed with McKay to score “Vice,” which stars Christian Bale as Dick Cheney and comes out Christmas Day 2018.

We also had a bar with adult and nonalcoholic beverages available for purchase before and after the program.
