  1. And some Respighi with a sprinkling of Stravinsky. I believe that this deserves some discussion: editing to temp. After all, temp music has always existed in filmmaking, but editing to temp music has not. Thanks to non-linear editing systems like AVID, it's become commonplace. That is, unless a thread about such a discussion has already been made and I'm simply not aware of it.
  2. Like how? In the form of an internet death hoax?
  3. You know, that smooth, skinny looking thing Indy keeps by his side, sometimes holds in his hands, and it makes quick little bursts of noise whenever it's out in the open. It's name is Willie Scott or Marion Ravenwood, depending on which film you're watching.
  4. I'm ashamed to admit that I am not as familiar with Desplat's work as I would like to be. What works of his emulate the orchestration and instrumentation of Debussy and Ravel?
  5. Loved your review from start to finish. I saw HPSS (North American) in concert, too. Concert buddy! I've also seen Home Alone in concert, too. And this year, the Films In Concert series where I live has three new additions for me to enjoy: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Nightmare before Christmas, and HPatCoS. I've GOT to see all of them. P.S. You only got one thing wrong in your review. Eight films. HPatDH was a two-parter.
  6. You probably will. He posts them on his Facebook first and then posts them elsewhere. He's got lots of storyboards there already.
  7. Some do. John Cage's In the Name of the Holocaust and George Crumb's Makrokosmos come to mind. Henry Cowell's The Banshee is the quintessential example of piano string plucking. In addition (but really, this is what we're supposed to be talking about), some modern composers have long planks built on hinges and springs so a pianist can press it down and produce a really large cluster range, like in Joseph Schwantner's Aftertones of Infinity.
  8. Was Battlefield Earth your kinda movie? Or Plan 9 From Outer Space? Yes, I picked bad examples. I'm a stinker.
  9. Processed waterphone. But yeah, it's a piano cluster in the higher registers.
  10. Loving your work so far. Keep 'em coming. Looking forward to the cartoon segment.
  11. It's a real shame, to say the least. If only there were somebody who could do a realistic MIDI mockup of the cue as it was supposed to sound.
  12. Way to make me come out of hiding to see this video. It's so elating to share a screen credit with John Williams. His themes instrumentation made my composition and orchestrations possible for this project. Dang, I missed these forums. I need to get back in here more often. Scallenger has been my Spielberg these last two years.
  13. I know. I too believe that likeness should be posthumously respected and left alone. I was simply making an observation.
