Wendel Patrick is the composer, producer and performer of the musical score for every episode of Out of the Blocks. In this special installment, he talks about some of his favorite compositions from the show and delves into how (and why) he makes the music. Wendel can span musical genres from classical to hip hop with compositions that take the listener on an emotional journey full of surprises: A cell-phone ringtone symphony? Check. A hair-clipper fugue? Check. This is a must-listen for aspiring music producers or anyone who wants to hear extended music cuts from Out of the Blocks.
