I'm a longtime (for my relatively few years) film score fan originally from Indiana, but I've lived in 5 states and 2 countries. I've lurked here for a while to augment my listening to film scores, but look forward to actually joining in on the discussion.

As for my musical background, I've been in various choirs my whole life, although I wouldn't describe myself as classically trained, vocally or otherwise. I'm self-taught at the piano and believe I have a pretty decent grasp of theory from listening to classical and film music and reading books on the topic. My actually composing experience has been pretty minimal, limited to writing music for a friend's short films and writing sketches in my spare time, but I'd love to be able to do more.

Regarding film scores, my favorite John Williams scores are probably Revenge of the Sith and Jane Eyre, with Amistad, Lincoln, and the other Star Wars scores close behind. My other favorite film composers include Jerry Goldsmith, Clint Mansell, Howard Shore, and Mark Isham.

Welcome, dude! Any-one who likes "Jane Eyre", Jerry Goldsmith, and Mark Isham ("Blue Sun" is great!) gets my vote. Are you familiar with Isham's work with XTC?

Post long, and prosper.

Welcome aboard. Don't let some of our older members scare you away like they've tend to with some new comers. :P

Have no fear little Gnome: I am here to protect thee...

Protecting him from me? I'm far more innocent that a lot of the older folks, even though I've been here since around 2000ish. lol
