#Quote
1I love composing to picture long or short - animated or otherwise - as long as the story is decent and the characters draw you into them. If the story is good - it doesn't matter if it's a children's pop up book or finger puppets.
#Fact
1When Patterson finished writing the hit song, "Everything Is Awesome" for The Lego Movie (for which he received an Academy Award nomination), Shawn intended to have rappers Snoop Dogg and Ice T perform his rap lyrics on the soundtrack. However, the film's directors brought in "The Lonely Island"; who altered some of Patterson's existing rap lyrics and performed on the soundtrack instead.
2Has guest lectured on the art of film scoring at California State University.
3During the peak of the "Oh Yeah! Cartoons" series, Patterson was the most frequently requested composer.
4He is an avid motorcycle rider - partial to BMW motorcycles.
5Sites Igor Stravinsky, John Williams, Thelonious Monk and Jerry Goldsmith as primary musical influences.
6Once doubled for Phil Hartman - imitating one of Hartman's voices on "The Ren and Stimpy Show".
7Has worked professionally as a music editor, sound effects editor and dialogue editor.
8Studied with legendary jazz musicians Dr. Billy Taylor and Max Roach.
9Once held a summer job picking tobacco in central Massachusetts.
10He got into music at age eleven after watching comedian/actor Steve Martin play the banjo and perform stand up comedy. His first instrument was the 5 string banjo - later switching to guitar and piano.
11Has studied orchestration with Jack Smalley.
12In the Dreamworks film, "Madagascar", the voice of "Skipper the Penguin" (voiced by Director Tom McGrath) is based on Patterson.
