    I wonder how TGP feels about this...

     

    He watched the first episodes tonight - just for Ewan really - and I can't say it was that enthralling.  Came here to see what this place thought.  Music is just sort of there, innit?

    Isn't he banned?

     

    Reports of my banning are greatly exaggerated.  I am merely retired from JWFan, the internet, and music making as a whole.  I seem to only ever check this place anymore when I'm away from home.  Hope you're all well.

  2. I haven't been here in some time and wondered why Stefan wasn't around.  If you read this old friend, know that I wish you all the best going forward.  Maybe someone in contact with him can pass along the message.  How odd to witness the twists and turns of each others' lives like this over a forum.  I hope you're all as well as possible, JWFan.

    Williams is in the crossfire of snobs who repeat at nauseam that he is a "thief", that he doesn't modulate themes to other keys like symphonists do, doesn't write for opera (lol), and slobs, who enjoy him as much as any "epic" pop sound---and no more, and generally don't give a damn whether there are 30 staves of skilled writing sounding in their headphones, or computer-generated ambience and vague tapestry.

     

    Snobs, if pressed, choose Herrmann, Morricone, or Takemitsu over Williams on his home turf, or else insist on ghetto-ing him under the label of "film music", away from "classical music", which somehow sooner has place for Stockhausen and Cage than for him.

     

    Slobs think Zimmer is greater, or have nearly forgotten him.

     

    He is nowhere to be found on the lists of recommended most important or influential contemporary composers, or on ranking lists of classical composers.

     

    I don't know what to think.

     

    He's fine.

    Unfortunately, a lot of cloth-eared listeners do think that he's the messiah of film music :(

     

    Thankfully we have you to preach the truth to those poor unfortunate souls who like different things than you do.  Hate to be nothing but negative lately but this place is slipping back into its old ways more and more, which is a damn shame.  There was a Silver Age for a little while there.
