Celluloid Tunes # 52: Danny Elfman in Vienna (ENG)

Recommended Posts

you do have a good voice! and your norwegian is very easy for me to understand.

is there any way I can get this on my iphone? I'm flying home later this week and could kill some time on the plane listening to this.

Unfortunately, I cannot offer the webcast for download (like a podcast).This is because of copyright issues in relation to the music clips. So unless there's a WiFi on the plane and you can stream it from there, in 'flight mode', you'd need to wait untill you get back on the ground. Sorry. But that's another challenge for me right there -- how to get it plane-playable.

I mostly understand "there are", "by", and the loans.

That's all you need. ;)

I took a small listen of the second episode and found Norwegian surprisingly easy to understand even though I am familiar only with Swedish. I am going to listen to both of the shows when I have time. Keep up the good work Thor! :)

Cool!

I try to enunciate as clearly as possible, to make it understandable for other Scandinavians -- not only Norwegians. So if you can understand some of it as a Finnish, maybe I can expand the relevance to the Nordic countries! :)

thor, how long does it take for you to come up with stuff for a new episode, record, edit it etc?

About a day -- a) conceptualization (this may actually take a few days to properly 'digest' in my mind), b) writing some keywords for a manuscript, c) recording voice, d) editing voice, e) editing in clips, f) editing a master recording. The SUPER HERO programme took about 8 hours. The conceptualization bit is the tricky part...that's why I can only have new programs about every 14 days or so, as one's mundane everyday activities have a tendency to intrude. :)

THE PHANTOM is fantastic! (the score, that is, not the film).

As you say, Chaac, the program can hopefully be used as a moderated 'sampler' for music clips even for those who don't understand my words. And then if you like what you're hearing, you can always check out more samples and even full albums at Youtube, Spotify, iTunes and whatnot.

Thank you, Stefan.

It's somewhat discouraging when you spend -- in this case -- 10-12 hours on a program, only to have it wither away with 28 views on facebook, for example. Gone. :(

I should really hire a PR person.

Why 'listener friendly?' Why not let the listener decide for him/herself how he/she feels about a piece?

Just not to scare away the people who won't listen to stingers and loads of tenuto suspense strings. For most of us this isn't a problem, really, but maybe to the public in general.
