Comedy is all about 3 things: timing, subverting expectations, and going just a little bit too far. For every joke, quip, awkward situation, or physical comedy bit, Seth analyzes the structure of the comedy and creates music that doubles the laughs.
Sometimes the best music for comedy is no music at all, or deliberate silence punctuating a bigger, more serious score. Sometimes heroic, bombastic music when a character does something stupid is exactly what makes it even funnier. These are the kind of unexpected comedy scores which are Seth’s specialties.
Oh yeah, and he can write “plinky plinks” too.
