  1. Hello there from over the pond! Does anyone know of any film score shows on American radio stations, which, in addition to broadcasting via the airwaves, also broadcast over the net/ have websites? If you're a Brit like me, you'll know of 'ClassicFM at the Movies', which you can hear online and across the entire UK. I was thinking along the same lines as that. Can anyone help? Cheers!
  2. Hi, I'm a university student in England and occasional poster to this forum. I'm writing my film master's dissertation on the Back to the Future trilogy and would like to get some info on Alan Silvestri, who composed the music for the films. I have hunted high and low and have now learned that I am unable to purchase back issues of most of these magazines listed below. If anyone has any of these lurking in their attic, I would be most grateful of a scanned article (or as many as you have!). I will of course pay you for your trouble or perhaps we can work out some sort of swap. It's really important that I get these articles, purely from an academic reserach standpoint. Please e-mail me at chasrowe2@hotmail.com if you can help in any way. Time is of the essence and I would be extremely thankful. Many thanks in advance.

  3. Hi, I'm looking for musically and technically accurate and professional analyses of Alan Silvestri scores from Robert Zemeckis films in the same vein as the analysis found in the inlay to the Back to the Future Trilogy CD (Cond: John Debney; Royal National Scottish Orchestra, Varese Sarabande). If anyone knows: 1. anywhere on the net where I can get these, or 2. even if you know of Film core Monthly back issues with such info..... 3. or, if you happen to know Jon and Al Kaplan (the guys who wrote the critical commentary of each Silvestri cue in the Varese cd), it would be a miracle and I would be much obliged. I am not a music critic, just a Film Student doing his dissertation! Cheers!
  4. many thanks, Ricard. I thought it was the Evening Standard. Cheers now. P.S. sorry about "bringing up that article" again. It's just that these articles need to have two sides to make an argument. (!)
  5. before anyone gets angry, let me assure you. John Williams is a legend. There you go. Right, I'm writing an article for a student newspaper in Britain and I remember seeing a link to an article slating John Williams quite a while ago now. The content was something along the lines that he's lost his touch and that people like Gabriel Yared are much better. This article, especially if Ricard knows where it can be found, would be great fodder for my piece. If anyone can help me to find this, I would be much obliged. Many thanks in advance.
  6. Hi people, I've got an 80min cd to burn an action/tension music compilation onto, cos, well... I'm bored. If you guys can suggest some other great tunes, this may have to be a 2CD set!! I'm going for a driving, rhythm based set of pieces, with a good bit of pace. Check the vibe > Here's my tracklisting so far: 1. Contact - Ellie?s Bogey 2. Legends of the Fall ? Samuel?s Death 3. Apollo 13 ? Master Alarm 4. Back to the Future Part II ? Tunnel Chase 5. Minority Report - Anderton?s Great Escape 6. Back to the Future ? The Libyans 7. Air Force One ? Air Combat 8. Aliens ? Bishop?s Countdown 9. Gladiator ? The Battle (or Gladiator Waltz) 10. The Perfect Storm ? Small Victories 11. Titanic ? The Sinking 12. The Mummy Returns - My First Bus Ride 13. Air Force One expanded - Air Combat (McNeely) I would think that there's plenty more pieces out there. I suppose "The Chase" in Sleepy Hollow would be one, but I haven't heard it. Same goes for something from Panic Room which I heard on the radio, but I don't know what the track is. Any suggestions? Cheers in advance.
  7. Oh, one more thing. What do the single and double asterisks denote? Thanks again.
  8. Sounds about right to me! That's excellent. Thanks a lot!
  9. Hi, Has anyone any theories over what the tracks on the AI 2CD Oscar Score Promo would be? Is there a general consensus on these names? I haven't got the foggiest. :roll: I'd like to make a back inlay for my set. Cheers.
  10. Wicked. thanks a lot. definitely on my wish list!
  11. I'm relatively new to Williams and wasn't born when THE FURY was originally released. Is it a good score? Any good themes there?
  12. Yo! It's not my war per se (come to think of it, it's OUR war actually) but I just wanted to take a head count of those of you who've supported the petition for a full Back to the Future score to be released in conjunction with the DVDs this winter. A raised hand, "aye", or whatever you deem appropriate will do. In fact, here's an idea :idea: - you could tell me what your favourite cue is as well. Cheers.
  13. I'm actually in the process of acquiring said Young Sherlock Holmes 2cd...but I'm not counting my chickens. I need to wait for it to arrive first. Sorry for the digression - how many people have signed and sent the Back to the Future score petition? :?: Maybe I'll start a new thread...
  14. I hope that wasn't a reference to me. It's not my petition exactly, but I'd still like everyone to sign it, if anything to show your support for expanded/complete score releases. :!:
