EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW – COMPOSER BEN B. GOSS DISCUSSES HIS SCORE FOR ICE-T CRIME DRAMA EQUAL STANDARD
Binge-watched everything on Netflix and Hulu during this time at home and looking for something new? A film worth taking a second look at, that has become all to relevant right now, is Brendan Kyle Cochrane’s crime drama Equal Standard starring Ice-T, Tobias Truvillion, Syleena Johnson, Chris Kerson, Brad Fleischer, Rob Minutoli and Robert Clohessy. The film synopsis reads: An NYPD Detective is shot by one of his own, benevolent brothers in uniform. Communities are ignited – to march for justice. Gangs put their differences aside – for a united fight, an equal opportunity. “That people not be judged by the color of their skin but for the content of their character.” The movement and unity impacts City society and leads to a Blue Wall intervention within the Police force. White cops lust for change and act on it – by flushing out racism. Not an easy fight. In the end, what was considered impossible, became possible. Adding to the intensity of the film is the original score by composer Ben B. Goss. Ben does a great job of heightening the tension, while accentuating the character’s emotions. We spoke with Ben in-depth about creating the film’s score, read the exclusive interview below. Ben’s Equal Standard score is now available on iTunes and Amazon.
