Bryce David Dessner is an American composer and guitarist based in Paris also known as a member of the rock band The National.
We have a treat for you on our latest episode of Soundtracking, what with it being Christmas and all, with not one guest but three! First up is the delightful Bryce Dessner of The National, who has scored the Netflix film The Two Popes, starring Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce as the eponymous pontiffs, Benedict and Francis. As usual, you'll hear plenty of Bryce's music during the course of the conversation. Then there's something for all you Avengers fans with a very entertaining turn from Infinity War and Endgame writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Now, if we're honest, we don't talk about music at length - but they're such good fun we wanted to share the interview with you anyway.
The National guitarist Bryce Dessner sits down with Kyle Meredith to discuss I Am Easy To Find and how the new album meditates on the limitations and possibilities of a band. The two also dive into the details of how filmmaker Mike Mills played a crucial role in the LP, producing and writing alongside the band while creating a short movie to accompany the record. Dessner also talks a bit about his most recent solo offerings and how all of this opens the door wide open for what the band does from here on out.
