Composer Spotlight: Rob Simonsen
“Working with Jason Reitman on Ghostbusters: Afterlife has been a career highlight for me and my twelve-year-old Ghostbusters-loving self. This playlist is a collection of music that shares some similarities in tone to the world of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, along with some key tracks from Elmer Bernstein’s classic original score, and some other highlights from my previous collaborations with Jason Reitman (Tully; The Front Runner).”– Rob Simonsen
