  1. Saving Private Ryan - chronological playlist using the LLL release This is very much a score for the hottest part of the Summer for me, it gets a lot of play every July. I guess because that's when the film originally came out.

  3. AOTC is filled with great music. Also lack of action music doesn't equal boring. Some of my favorite material from AOTC is the quieter stuff. AOTC does have a ton of action music though, even though only a portion of it appears on the album.

  4. The 20th anniversary edition of the World Soundtrack Awards will be celebrated in a special way. Adapted to current circumstances, this year's WSA will be an online edition, livestreamed from Kinepolis Ghent, where the ceremony itself will take place. In this way you'll have the chance to enjoy the award ceremony and concert from everywhere around the world (and in a safe and corona-proof manner). The WSAwards will be the closing event of Film Fest Ghent, and will take place on 24 October 2020. On the occasion of this 20th anniversary, we are d

  9. RETURN OF THE JEDI underrated? Not by me. Over the years, it's crept up to become my favourite Star Wars score. I've posted before, and I'll post, again: everything from BROTHER/SISTER, FATHER/SON onwards, is sublime.

  15. I uploaded my own DVD rip of the great, essential 1958 televised performance of Appalachian Spring by Martha Graham and her company. Hopefully it doesn't get removed or something for copyright. For a decade this performance has only been on Youtube as a 4 part upload with a really disconcerting, choppy framerate. So now at least it's up in good quality and in one single video.

    Ethereal cues from JW

    'Watching the Skies' - Close Encounters of the Third Kind Could not find a clip of it on YouTube, seems like nobody has uploaded the complete LLL release. So hopefully you have that release to listen to it. That cue is the definition of 'too perfect for this world.'

  25. Return to Tatooine is one of my favorite Star Wars tracks, and I'm being totally serious. Also, I find the complete score to Return of the Jedi more digestible than Empire Strikes Back, though there are definitely cues where they were designed to support the film foremost.

  30. Seconded on this one, a terrific score that is well worth exploring. The Moutain has terrific although the ecstatic writing in The Golden Door is absolutely spine tingling. Need to revisit this one. Is it me or are quite a lot of Morricone's scores fairly poor, recording wise, even some of the more recent ones aren't as good as might be hoped. The older ones can be very hit and miss. Given how particular he was, it's surprising he wasn't more fastidious with the quality of the actual recording/mixing.

  31. Alright @bollemanneke. As usual with these, the editing isn't perfect. Just sort of threw it together. Also, feel free to ignore the second half. I sort of just did it for fun and then let the video keep going to see if it continued to kind of sync up.

    7th on the bottom?

    You know, it occurs to me that Williams never actually said "chordal seventh!" Part of our collective confusion may stem from misremembering, and the general truthiness of the idea that old-fashioned Steineresque villain writing involved 4/2-inverted chords. The actual quote from the interview I believe we're all referring to makes mention of seventh scale degree. "We have the Nazis, you know, and the orchestra hits these 1940s dramatic chords, you know, with the seventh degree of the scale on the bottom. Which is kind of like an old signal of some evil militaristic doer."

  33. Oh no. I've become a massive fan of him, especially during the last year. Attended two concerts, began buying CDs. He was an amazing musician, who silenced the academia, which used to treat film music as a lesser art.

  34. This is awful. Having said that, he had an amazingly long life and career that most composers can only dream of. And most striking musical imagination. You cannot say he didn't achieve anything there there is to be achieved in this field. Rest in piece. Karol

  35. It's good that you weren't in charge of Joker then. Tod Phillips' approach clearly struck a chord with critics and audiences. Perhaps they did pick up and appreciate its gritty social commentary.

  36. Seven Years in Tibet by John Williams: Revisited this during the weekend. It remains such a beautiful and powerful amd melodic score with interesting Far Eastern stylistic influences although nearly always translated through the Western symphony orchestra, just like Williams did later with Memoirs of a Geisha. The album is superbly put together with a coherence and flow of its own compared to the relatively low-key mix and treatment the music receives in the film itself, the album full of alternate and unused pieces alongside the cues that actually made it to the film. Funnily the

  38. Rogue One aired here in the UK on a non-subscription channel last night, I did wonder how that was allowed in these Disney+ times. It was never going to be as good as Man On Wire. I don't know why they bothered.

  39. The statement by Morricone has class and grace as well, and is a little more personal: https://www.fpa.es/en/princess-of-asturias-awards/laureates/2020-ennio-morricone-and-john-williams.html?texto=declaracion&especifica=0 "solitude", work "ethic", "constant dedication" are indeed also words that we have seen applied to Williams.

  41. Like Pallaeon I'm a little confused by your question. In the key of C, the (major) 7 would be B... I'm not sure why you would want to refer it as a downward minor second (?), especially if it puts you at risk of thinking of the actual second scale degree by mistake (D in the case of C). Is there a certain organizational hurdle you're trying to get through? Oh we know where he got the D!

  42. Its not Han's theme; and that motif isn't the Millennium Falcon theme, either! The theme in the subject of the thread is the love theme of Princess Leia and Han Solo. It applies to Han only insofar as the love story is concerned. If anything, it speaks of the relationship more from Leia's perspective: its just a variation on her own theme, really. I would argue that the timing of this suite's release, given Fisher's passing, proves more than anything that its not Han's theme. Especially seeing how Williams is writing a new theme for the character's own film. The other m
