  1. From the moment the CDs arrived, were played, ripped onto our harddrives, they were doomed. They were undone, destroyed, after all of man's optical drives and devices had failed, by the tiniest scratches that plant workers in their wisdom put upon disc surfaces. Karol

  4. A couple of recent Discord listening sessions for myself and @Holko, with @SteveMc joining us later on today: Succession by Nicholas Britell (a "greatest hits" highlight playlist) Super fun classical pastiche and hip-hop fusion featuring endless ensemble combinations and several allusions to the Baroque masters, from the clearest statements to the most minute accents and edges. Had a lot of fun sharing this with Holk! First Man by Justin Hurwitz (a wonderful shortened program) Still stands above comparison to most other recent examples of modern scoring. Steve was on

  7. My love and lust for Villa-Lobos has coursed with no delay. My current stop in the land of this prolific composer: Floresta do Amazon, a symphonic tone poem. Fans of adventure scoring from the likes of Williams and Goldsmith might get a kick out of some of this! With some more contemplative moments thrown in as well

  8. I made a simple transcription that may be useful. This is definitely quite unlike the usual accompaniment heard with Leia’s theme, which I think helps strengthen the likelihood this is an intentional allusion to Kylo’s theme:

  10. source As someone who loves the original Dahl book, the 1990 movie, and is currently going through Zemeckis' filmography in order, watching one a week, I was really hoping his adaptation of The Witches was going to be good. But sending it directly to HBOMax doesn't necessarily bode well.... we'll see! Either way, we're getting a new Alan Silvestri score for a Zemeckis film in 3 weeks!

  11. To me, one of The Rise of Skywalker's most endearing qualities is the number of short, transient melodies and motifs that are heard just once or twice. These tend to be unrelated to the series's main catalogue of leitmotifs, and they aren't really set-piece themes either since they don't draw attention to themselves like "The Asteroid Field" or "Flag Parade" do. Nevertheless, I find these little one-offs quite essential to the overall warm, humane tone of this score as a whole. Here's a sample of what I'm talking about: Leia Trains Rey. Two distinct statements, at 0:10

  14. Technically, this is a Blu-ray update, but I thought it made sense to include it here, since the score is well-known and distinctive: Freud is at last coming to home video in North America (in Blu-ray, no less!), according to The Digital Bits https://thedigitalbits.com/columns/my-two-cents/101520-1400

  16. I usually use the album tag for the name of the actual works, i.e. if I have an album with two symphonies, A on tracks 1-4 and B on tracks 5-8, I'll label the first four tracks as album A and the others as album B (keeping the real track numbers). At the end of the album tag, I'll add the conductor/soloist/artist, and the year if i've got multiple recordings of the same work by the same artist. I've also long ago started including the work name in each track name (even though it's also the album name), to keep stuff like Last.FM from thinking every "Overture" of every opera is the

  20. The HTTYD2 OST was issued by Relativity Music Group (a subsidiary of UMG), so they own the mechanical rights to release (any form of) the score. DreamWorks Animation owns all the music that wasn't on the OST. A label would have to get licenses from both entities to make an expansion happen. It's possible for Varese to do this, or any of our specialty labels. HTTYD3 is different. That OST was issued by Back Lot Music - a subsidiary of Universal Pictures. So the same company owns the mechanical rights AND all the music that wasn't on the OST. Theoretically it's possible for them to

  21. Couldn't Varese or the others license them out like any other score? They were London I think.

  22. I'm a big fan of Fright Night, the original. Evil's de-transformation and death has to be one of the coolest practical effects sequences in movie history.

  23. I'll admit that I've never read or seen The Witches (we're going to watch the O.G. on 10/31), but I think that witch mouth is suitably gross/creepy. In motion is where the CGI might fail for me.

  29. Wind & Starship Troopers (Basil Poledouris) - I think these are probably my two favourite Basil scores. Wind is a fantastic mix of synths and orchestra that I can’t get enough of. And I’m not really into synth scores but the textures he produced are perfect for sailing (I live on a tiny island and have sailed a lot but alas never had the chance to listen to Wind while doing so). The orchestra comes in at just the right points to heighten the drama. If I remember rightly he was a big fan of sailing (or was it surfing?!) so perhaps felt extra inspired. Starship Troopers was the first major

Those two films and scores.....damn , they are....they are..... How do you put into words , "magic"? *sounds like two pianos playing simultaneously in octaves R

  35. I can't believe the 100th episode of this podcast is now available for the world to hear. Where has the time gone? It feels like yesterday I was nervously recording the first episode, then watching "Daddy-O" with excitement. Well, that was two years ago this month, and this only shows how fast time flies when you are having fun. Here's the 100th episode, covering the music from "Munich." People have said the score is boring and lifeless, but I think you need to hear it in the film in order to really appreciate it.

  38. Thanks for posting that! I might have seen it when the DVD came out but hadn't seen it since. It's so nice to hear Williams talk directly about the score for longer than just cursory marketing fluff type statements. And how interesting that it actually contains Williams talking about how Spielberg replaced his original "Surveying the Wreckage" cue with music tracked in from Epilogue? And that little bit from 11:00-11:36 that just shows, unedited, a conversation between Williams and Spielberg about how to score a scene? WE NEED MORE OF THIS FOOTAGE TO BE OUT IN THE WO

  41. At FSM a number of people have reported a defective disc 1 with what appears to be a scratch on the outer edge of the disc that causes the final few tracks to be unplayable. Upon reading this I opened mine to discover that unfortunately I had the same issue so I've contacted Intrada for a replacement. My copy had been sitting unopened since it arrived in Monday (I ordered 5 cds and was saving this one for last) so if anyone hasn't checked their copy yet I would recommend they open it and take a look. Here is a photo of what the damage looks like:
