Happy Birthday, Michael Kamen!

Recommended Posts

Michael Kamen would be 64 today. A man of big talent(s) and even bigger heart (as heard through his music).

His last work (which I wholeheartedly recommend if you haven't listened to it yet):

And my personal favourite work of his:

There are many others, of course. :)

A note on the first one, the rhythm in the bass reminds me of " Oveture " from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Another great score by him. Can't say the movie lived up to it, sadly.

I also recommend his lethal weapon scores.

An awesome composer who died way too young. At least he's in a much better place now. I am currently listening to his awesome score for Die Hard (LLL) set now.

Hopefully his score for Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves gets a legit complete release at some point.

The guy who hated action movies did some really bad ass stuff in this genre:

One of my favorite cues from my second favorite film composer:

And a Kamen interview showing some of the temp tracks used for Brazil (my favorite non-Williams score):

Agreed with the sentiments above; I also really like Don Juan DeMarco

That Brazil interview was v. interesting Ricard, thanks for that :-)
