  1. Very interesting! I am very involved with this composer and it's quite an interesting story. He wrote a piece for the orchestra I was composer in residence for many years ago how ever the sheet music had been lost to time and I had to modernize/typeset it from the original manuscripts for publication since he was a composer of some repute. We premiered it's revival.
  2. I believe San Francisco symphony is doing Jaws live to picture this summer.
  3. I am a believer. Since you have to pay a monthly fee to get the "become a member to continue watching" the monthly updates, it has to be true.

  5. His level of method acting is astounding since he is wearing jeans which were invented in 1873, the year the film takes place.
  6. Damn, I loved every single one of his performances. I remember while "discovering" him in "My Left Foot" thinking how amazing the performance was of that guy who had cerebral palsy only to realize it was just a complete performance.
  7. We know how Billie Lourd feels about it - she is for it being public due to the social stigma: "My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life,'' Lourd said. "She ultimately died of it. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases. "She talked about the shame that torments people and their families confronted by these diseases. I know my Mom, she’d want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles. Seek help, fight for government funding for mental health programs. Shame and those social stigmas are the enemies of progress to solutions and ultimately a cure. Love you Momby."
  8. Tonality is based on harmony. Counterpoint is based on melody regardless of a tonal center(tonality). That is how.
  9. I thought they also produced a book which is the full interview with the composers they talked to so that is how you can get your outtakes.
  10. Yes, it is literally a Latin translation of "punctus contra punctum" which is "note against note" so as Loert said, its melodic lines that overlap. Each independent line should sound fine on its own but works better when the two (or more) independent lines are played at the same time.
  11. That looks like it must have been a great show! I hope the rest of us will eventually get to hear it.
  12. It's a synth at the start but a muted horns when heard here:
  13. You are falling for their bait. They are teasing.
  14. Ok, cool, thanks.
  15. What is the gizmo between Hans Zimmer's monitor and computer keyboard and what is it used for? Is that like another monitor but touch sensitive?
