The 49-year-old N.E.R.D. singer considers composing film music a 'marathon' but considers the 'three to five minute' song his specialty, which he sees more like a 'race'.
When asked if a 'Star Trek' movie would be his ideal film to write music for, the 'G2' supplement star told The Guardian newspaper in a question-and-answer session with fans: “I'm a 'Star Trek' fan, but film music is a completely different matter. It's not for me There are all kinds of races: relay, marathon, cross-country, sprint. A film is a marathon. Every step needs to be considered to take people on a journey. A 15 second jingle would be a sprint. My specialty is the three to five minute race.” Concentrating on a project as long as film music is not his thing and needs to be learned. However, he admires composers who have mastered this art. 'I don't have the mental stamina to stick with something for as long as I do with a film score. There's a reason Hans Zimmer has two Oscars.'
Asked about the greatest music producer and his opinion on whether he would agree with the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche that life without music would be a mistake, Pharrell replied: 'Quincy Jones, obviously! And a life without music would be like a person without meaning. I always made music as a kid, but never thought I could do anything with it. I always knew I would make music, I just never knew what – whether I would end up being a terrible music teacher or an art teacher who is always asking his friends to come over and play on the side. But that's how my story was written and I'm thankful for it every day.'
