Congratulations to Maestro Williams! :)

Let's hope that this bodes well for Williams' Oscar chances.

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-

It was nice of him to thank Plan 9 during his speech for helping him writing the main theme of the score.

Curious that the best score is found at the very bottom of the list! Almost like an afterthought...

No personal comments about this here, just to rise this award and nominations winning score thread above the endless Hobbit threads.

Well, nice! That he deserves it is of course something that can't be argued.

I skimmed the broadcast on Youtube, JW was there but I don't think his category was broadcast.

Hi everyone

Back in October 2012, Moviescope magazine in the UK printed an interview / feature article I was commissioned to write for them about aspects of the career of sound designer Gary Rydstrom.

This article has now been archived online (just today) and you can read it here. In the interview Gary Rydstrom mentions JW and so I hope it's of interest and that you enjoy it.


Dream well!
