Scottish composer of electronica and modern orchestral soundtracks. Tunesmith.
I thought it was fantastic. I don't know Westworld, but I read the brief, and it hit the mark. There were lots of complaints from people saying that it didn't fit in with the Westworld sound / other episodes. They may well be right, but that wasn't what people were asked to do.
David added humour to the piece in a perfect manner. The way the orchestral instruments build up under the Mario-esque riff and carry it on melded it together so well.
I also love that this piece has upset so many people by winning. Hans Zimmer wrote about this highlighting that he would *never* work with the people who were throwing their toys out of the pram. He's right. If you can't embrace inventiveness, originality and thinking out of the box, then you're unlikely to make music worth listening to.
