  1. I was thinking about the famous "I'm flying" scene from Titanic and, in particular, the precise moment where the music reaches its emotional climax. On paper, you might expect the score to swell at the moment Jack and Rose kiss, but it actually reaches its emotional peak a few seconds later when Rose reaches up her hand to hold Jack's head closer. The moment becomes a lot more sensual and somehow more romantic as a result. I realise this is just intelligent, intuitive film scoring, but the timing of these things always fascinates me. (2:09) Another example off the top of my head is the final scene in Home Alone when Kevin and Old Man Marley share their moment through the window. One could score it so the music swells when Marley raises his hand in greeting, but Williams holds it for that little moment longer until Kevin returns the gesture, when both characters have completed their arcs with regards to each other. This video below actually has the alternate “O Holy Night” version of the cue too, and you can see the emotional journey is exactly the same in both pieces of music. (00:47) I’m curious to know if you can think of any other examples like this. Moments where the music could reach an emotional peak at one moment, but actually climaxes at another for a stronger emotional impact.
  2. http://filmmusicreporter.com/2016/09/22/watertower-music-to-release-fantastic-beasts-and-where-to-find-them-soundtrack/ Score released November 4th by Watertower. Apparently we're getting a Vinyl edition too. They must be excited by the score if they're putting money into a Vinyl release.
  3. http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/it.A/id.10541/.f?sc=13&category=22848 Sadly the newly unearthed end credits is from a terrible tape dub but is an 80's heroic gem if there ever was one.
  4. By Gia. I think Silverstri's was better.

Release (Thomas Newman) Love the first score as well as Wall*E, so looking forward to this! ETA: Went browsing around Andrew Stanton's Twitter... From a question about reuse of old themes: Presumably from a question about temp tracks....wonder if we'll be able to spot that
  6. Announced via his twitter I would have thought Christopher Young would have gotten the gig, but this could be a fun score for him after Zootopia and Star Trek Beyond.
  7. Anything about this yet? Besides the video of him conducting
  8. Apologies if this has been posted before - but this is so exciting! So pleased that they got to go to the sessions and hear the new music, presumably Williams' told them about their themes. Amusing impression of Williams' conducting too!

  12. Anyone got any theories about the "signature" piece of TFA? The equivalent of Duel of the Fates, Across the Stars or Battle of the Heroes? I'm sure the film will have at least 4 new themes, but I'd love to know what's been cooked up for the main theme.
  13. Do we know if Williams is conducting any of the Force Awakens? If someone else is conducting, will that have a major effect on the outcome of the score?
  14. Of course nobody knows as of yet but if you had to hazard a guess, what direction do you think Williams will take with the Force Awakens score? From the footage so far of the film, it looks more like the originals. Do you think Williams therefore may return to his writing style that he did for the originals or do you think we will hear something more akin to the prequels and his more modern style?
