  2. Just seen this. Apparently all Oscar-nominated music from this year will be performed live February 27 at the Royce Hall in LA, three days before the actual Oscar event itself. Johnny will conduct a Book Thief suite, I assume. The whole article: http://variety.com/2014/music/awards/acad-music-contenders-to-take-the-stage-at-royce-hall-1201098466/ Nice move on the Academy's part, this could be quite lovely.

  9. That's where we differ. I hear each chord as one sonority, not two separate halves. They seem more like upper structure chords than polychords, probably due to the omitted thirds and other important intervals. Take chord 4 and 5 (basically the same the chord moved down a whole step - just re-voiced and inverted). I've seen this chord in dozens of other scores and jazz charts (Jerry Fielding and Alex North come to mind) - and to me they're just upper structure Lydian chords.

  10. I voted for Book Thief, Gravity, and yes, but that doesn't disguise the fact that there's very little of interest in this year's nominations. It's the first time in a while that none of my personal top 5 were nominated. The Book Thief is probably my least favorite Williams score this decade. Philomena and Saving Mr. Banks seemed pretty generic, and Gravity somehow managed to be both irritatingly sound-driven and overscored at the same time (the last scene was nothing more than a pale imitation of Horner's "Re-Entry and Splashdown"). I'll admit I haven't listened to Her or seen the film yet
