Ego Plum's score for 'The Cuphead Show' comes from a life-long love of cartoons
Ego Plum has admired the music for classic cartoons by Carl Stalling, and 1930's band leader Raymond Scott since he was young. He had a chance to introduce a whole new audience to this incredible music by composing the score for The Cuphead Show, created for Netflix from the wildly-popular game. Ego says he felt right at home, putting a new spin on the iconic, manic music from classic Max Fleisher cartoons.
He says writing music for cartoons gives him an artistic freedom, as well as the fun of creating a soundtrack that changes from moment to moment to match the action in the cartoon.
There are plans to release a soundtrack from The Cuphead Show, and Ego is kicking around the idea of a live concert featuring music from classic cartoons as well as his own music.
