The composer, whose music will next be heard on the soundtrack to Pacific Rim, reveals how he got involved with the project, how his themes for different characters have subtly evolved throughout the three seasons, and why it's a good idea to keep spoilers under your hat - especially when you're one of the first people to see new episodes.
