'Brokeback Mountain' Composer Releases New Album, 'Camino'

The haunting theme music from the 2005 film “Brokeback Mountain” earned musician Gustavo Santaolalla the first of his two Oscars. He got a second the following year for his work on “Babel.” The Argentine composer, who moved to the U.S. in the 1970s, has also won 16 Grammy awards.

Santaolalla joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to talk about his new album, “ Camino,” and about working with director Ang Lee on the music for the film “Brokeback Mountain.”
