Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con: Interview w/ Sonya Belousova

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

sonya-bAt last month’s Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con event, I had the pleasure of meeting the very talented Sonya Belousova at the SHAKA booth. It was a bit of a weird happenstance, my girlfriend actually happened upon the SHAKA booth and mentioned that I was looking to interview artists, creators, etc on behalf of FanboyNation.I decided to stop by and check everything out, but unfortunately I only had time to do a very short interview (I was on my way to a panel I was helping out with). Before I posted the interview, I wanted to elaborate on who Sonya Belousova is, and why you should check her out immediately.

For those unfamiliar, Sonya Belousova is a brilliant young musician/composer from Russia living in Los Angeles, Ca. She started a project that was initially called Cosplayer Piano which later became Player Piano where she does renditions of film and video game songs and themes that are beautifully captured by Director/Producer Tom Grey. For example, a few of my favorites included a video of Sonya playing her version of the Danny Elfman classic 1989 Batman score while she’s dressed up as Catwoman, a video where she plays a Star Wars medley assuming various costumes and set pieces invoking the iconic franchise, and perhaps slightly obscure, but my favorite nonetheless; a magical rendition of the Moon Theme from the DuckTales NES game. Click on those titles to watch the video, and be amazed…

Player Piano is just a part of what Sonya does; she’s also scored several films, ballets, and she’s won multiple awards. She’s absolutely spectacular, and I’m happy I had the opportunity (albeit brief) to talk with her and ask her a question about what has influenced her music.

 SB: Hello everyone! My name is Sonya Belousova, I am a composer and a pianist. You can find all the information about me on my website, www.sonyabelousova.com

What influences do you have as a composer?

SB: Well, it depends. Being originally from Russia, I absolutely love Russian music, especially Russian contemporary classical composers like Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Shchedrin. I adore Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. I write a lot of film scores, here it always depends, because every film is different and requires its own unique music world. Just to name a few great scores, I love Vertigo by Bernard Herrmann, The Man From UNCLE by Daniel Pemberton, Casino Royale by David Arnold, and Meet Joe Black by Thomas Newman.

Thank you so much, Sonya! Also, thank you to Theo Dumont from Dumont Marketing Group for facilitating the interview at the SHAKA Booth.
