Family Guy composer Walter Murphy shares his process

In this Youtube feature from Sound On Sound magazine, composer Walter Murphy shares the process he goes through to score an episode of Family Guy, the hit Fox series Walter has been scoring since the show's very first episode in 1999. Walter also details how he collaborated with the show's creator, Seth MacFarlane, to conceive, write and record the show's opening music theme before they even had a budget for the show. Walter's original recording of that theme is still used to this day. Walter uses Digital Performer extensively in his daily workflow, both in the studio and on the sound stage.
