Time zones are so confusing. :(

Is PDT the same as UTC/GMT -7 hours? Or -8 hours because of daylight savings...

And don't forget DST. It'll be soon summer time. This is getting all the more confusing.

I'll be premiering some music (approx 5 mins) from the new Hook release this Saturday morning on Q Radio (between 7 and 8am GMT) for those wishing to tune in. An interview with La-La Land's Matt and Michael plus John Takis will be the main focus of the feature, so i'll keep you updated and post a link to the show in case you can't tune in live.

Excellent Tim! Thanks for heads up!

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

Is it likely the set will contain the Lost Boy's song "Pick em Up"? I really hope not, it would really ruin the album for me if it was included.

Here's the link to listen live from 6am GMT @ www.qradionetwork.com

Just click on the 'listen live' tab on the top left of the page. The schedule won't show Movie Magic as it usually airs as part of my 9am to 1pm show, this week is special so it needs a more dedicated spot away from the usual schedule.

The extended interview with more from Matt, Michael and John will be posted at my website from about 8am GMT @ http://www.timburden...ovie-magic.aspx

The actual premiere of music forms 2 parts, after Matt and Michael chat about their work, thoughts on film music and other releases the focus in part 2 will turn to Hook's production and ultimate realisation coupled with the premiere of some of the unreleased Ultimate War sequence (at last!)

Then, John Takis will give a more in-depth insight into the film and music along with commentary on another cue premiere, this time from Peter's first meeting with Hook.

Again, much of this will be extended for the web edit.

I hope you enjoy listening, either way!

Is it possible to download your show as a small(-ish) file somewhere? I'm very interested, but stuck with exceptionally unreliable internet these days.

So if I've been paying attention, this is the first specialty soundtrack to have this much pre-release fanfare and hype, no? A lot of previous releases had hints and rumors (Blue Box comes to mind), but the label heads are doing radio and print interviews about it, announcing (officially) a month in advance, etc.

I'm having trouble coming up with a comparison that favors it (certainly not Phantom Menace or Indy IV :lol:), any ideas?

EDIT: To clarify, I mean by 'our' labels. Concord, Sony Classical, etc. don't count.

Hell, I took the day off work just to make sure I can order a copy on the first day within the first hour! :D I didn't want any chance of missing out on this release, which I have definitely wanted for the Ultimate War material alone since I really started getting into film scores. Hell, in my high school video class I used some of the unreleased war music from one of the boots in it, along with unreleased music from other scores. Funny thing is, all the music I used in that short film ended up getting complete/expanded releases over the next few years except for Hook. Now it too has finally happened. :)

Fascinating, I didn't know the middle of the movie was restructured to the degree that it was. John Takis' comments actually have me a little irritated that Sony couldn't put the deleted scenes on the blu-ray.

This was an excellent show, thanks Tim!

Indeed. The thought that this will be released on Tuesday makes me feel giddy. Over 10 years of waiting and hoping will be over. Truly a dream come true. :)

Excellent and very enlightening show Tim!

Really interesting listen. But then again it's not a surprise, given the quality of your previous audio interviews. Thanks, Tim!

Great interview Tim! :) It was interesting to hear this thanks for that preview. :)

3 more days until it's available for purchase. I'm really looking forward to this as well.

Have you guys ever ordered an album from La-La, Varese, etc. and gotten a CD with the case cracked? If yes, what did you do? Did you send it back or just replaced the case yourself?

I am afraid this might happen to me with Hook. It happened to me with 1941 (corner was a little broken). Which is really a pain.

Those labels have a very good service, but they need to work on that! We pay 30 bucks + shipping, so I expect the CD to be in flawless condition!

A cracked case is bound to arrive at some point or another. It's not the label's fault that the case(s) gets cracked. Generally it's the post office' fault for the cracked case. Blank CD cases are rather cheap these days, especially if you buy them in bulk. The only cracked CD case I've had come to me was the FSM release for Star Trek III. I ordered that one from Peter and he said the case arrived to him like that. He was kind enough and threw in a blank case to replace the cracked one.

It irritates the hell out of me when people blame the labels themselves for cracked cases. As I said it's NOT the label's fault that they arrive that way.
