Sage Lewis is a composer who uses his music to explore multiple relationships between electronic and acoustic sounds, virtual and physical reality, as well as cultural divides and bridges. Sage is the composer for the new film, “Operator”, as well as the groundbreaking virtual reality piece “The Surrogate”, both of which just premiered at the 2016 SXSW festival in Austin, TX.
SXSW is one of the biggest festivals for film, music, technology, and interactive media, held every mid-March in Austin, TX. My guest, Sage Lewis, has composed music for two projects that explore different facets of our relationships with technology. In addition, Sage has written music for Google, Facebook, and Maiyet, a New York based fashion brand. He also has a passion for Cuba, and has stated in his bio that he hopes to eventually become the ambassador to Cuba, after he’s finished scoring films for 20 more years.
