Erik Woods posted a topic in General DiscussionUPDATE: September 28, 2018 10 FAVOURITE SCORES OF THE LAST TEN YEARS | PART 1 http://www.cinematicsound.net/top-10-favourite-scores-past-10-years-pt1/ On the program today, I make my return to the network with part one of the countdown of my 10 favourite scores from the past ten years. Now, I know I’ve done a BEST OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM program in the past and some of the selections from that show will overlap here… but who cares. This is going to be a great show and by the time it is over, you’ll have heard some brilliant music. You'll hear music from John Powell, Mark McKenzie, Roque Banos, Abel Korzeniowski, James Horner, and Frederic Talgorn. Enjoy! The show is available via iTunes, Google Play & Stitcher http://apple.co/29zAyyL | http://bit.ly/1ZrG6Lf | http://bit.ly/2bIQlM3 Cinematic Sound Radio Affiliates http://www.wrockradio.com | http://www.moviescoreradio.com Co-Host of Tracksounds The Soundcast Stereo http://www.thesoundcast.blogspot.ca/ Social Networks http://www.facebook.com/cinematicsound | http://www.twitter.com/cinsoundradio Enjoy! -Erik-
I couldn't find any reference to this in the forums, so here goes: if you listen to podcasts, you've got to check out the Underscore Podcast (www.underscorepodcast.com). I discovered it when its hosts did a guest spot on Christopher Coleman's also-excellent Soundcast podcast (which I discovered via @Erik Woods's spectacular and long-running Cinematic Sound Radio Show, but I digress). The show is hosted by two composer/musician brothers, Marty and Will Brueggeman, and apparently it just began this year. Their format is really unique: they spend a month of weekly podcasts discussing one film (so far, Raiders and Vertigo). They do an introductory show, then an exploration of the major themes, then a "spotting session" that analyzes the soundtrack cue by cue, culminating in a feature-length commentary track that talks you through the score in context. Between films, they cleanse the palate with a "Reel Change," a one-off discussion of a topic in film music (so far, the ostinato and the Lydian mode). They've also conducted episode-length interviews with composers Joe Kraemer and John Lunn. The brothers are musically erudite, versed in film scores and classical music and able to spout the snobbiest musical terminology while remaining utterly down-to-earth. They provide truly insightful analysis. They illustrate their points liberally with samples and repeatedly demonstrate an encyclopedic knowledge and abiding love for the medium, as well as what is obviously hours of preparation for each episode. This podcast is absolutely not to be missed. I can't wait to see what movie they spotlight next. P.S. I swear no money changed hands to elicit this review, even if it sounds like it did. The gushing is warranted!
Incanus posted a topic in JOHN WILLIAMSThis might come a bit late in the game since the Academy Awards came and went already but Jim Svedja of KUSC Classical interviewed John Williams before the Oscars and here is the 30 minute talk they had. Also on the same site are the interviews with other three of the five Oscar nominees of 2014 and of course all the older KUSC programmes, including previous year's Oscar nominee interviews. John Williams is his humble and gracious self in the interview but what shines through very clearly during this talk is his truly deep appreciation for his colleagues, musicians and music itself. A fine listen. I am off to hear what Desplat, Price and Newman had to say!
