ASCAP Day at Berklee Featuring Pat Irwin
The Film Scoring and Songwriting departments present an ASCAP Day at Berklee interview featuring critically acclaimed composer and songwriter Pat Irwin.
Pat Irwin has composed the scores for numerous independent films and cartoons, including Class of 300, the Emmy Award–winning series with Andre 3000 on the Cartoon Network, the classic Rocko's Modern Life on Nickelodeon, and the boundary-pushing ABC/Disney show Pepper Ann as well as SpongeBob SquarePants. Irwin has written music for such cutting-edge films as Bam Bam and Celeste, written, directed, and starring Margaret Cho; But I'm a Cheerleader; and My New Gun, starring Diane Lane and written and directed by Stacy Cochran. Irwin was a central figure in the New York "No Wave" era and played with both the Raybeats and Eight Eyed Spy. He later joined the B52s and recorded and performed with the band for 18 years. He most recently scored HBO's Bored to Death.
