  1. 7th at the bottom and masked dissonance at the same time? We only lack a triplet Sadly the only thing I can offer you is the comfort that there is at least one "moron" more ignorant than you
  2. I recently found this great piece for trumpet with accompaniment, with Murphy as the soloist. The sound of this trumpet is so familiar to me, that I realized I wasn't enjoying merely the instrument type, but a clear feels-like-home effect of this particular player. I realized that it wasn't just Williams' music, or the qualities of the instrument itself, but also in a large part the consistently present voice of Maurice Murphy on my favourite recordings that inspired me to learn playing the trumpet.
  3. That Spanish award came just in time, didn't it? *sigh* R.I.P., Ennio Morricone.
  4. No reason it couldn't be both, as it is a western in space. Anyway, I've just finished the season and, after hours of barebones Rocky Balboa shtick, played the Phantom Menace end credits to end the show rightly. Williams' music hits like a freight train after so much Star Wars without it... during this show I felt that the music was hit and miss in terms of application. Usually it was fitting, but a bit too many times it was just confusing in being mismatched in energy to what was happening in the picture, and rather awkwardly timed.
  5. Wait. Towner is a part of his surname, not his second name? My life is a lie Interesting to think that Williams' grandfather was born 165 years ago and was a child during the U.S. Civil War. My grandfather was a child during World War II and it already feels like a completely different time (the sort of primitive house they lived in, etc.).
  6. I've just watched the beginning of the first episode, and all was good until the Mandalorian walked through the doors, and the viennese police siren sounded on some wacky woodwind. That was obviously a nod to those hostile warrior aliens in Star Trek, right? But was Goldsmith / Horner in turn even aware of what that pattern was? Steiner definitely was aware when he used it aptly in a crime film in the 1940s --- "The Letter", I think..., because he had lived in Vienna his entire youth... Anyway, the use is unintentionally funny to me, and I find it surreal to already know pieces by 4 different composers which all use this signal.
  7. The guy has "prophesized" a ton of nonsense in the past. I wouldn't pay too much attention to him. Funny voice, that's all. Besides, no Williams, no Lucas, no Star Wars. That's like stupid Wagner plots without Wagner's music.
  8. I've made a tier maker tool with over 40 film composers, because I needed it in a discussion elsewhere. Some are sadly missing and I can't edit now, but there are enough to play with if you'd like. https://tiermaker.com/create/composers-ranked-by-their-film-scores-482983 Available (in an alphabetical order): Aaron Copland, Adolph Deutsch, Alan Menken, Alan Silvestri, Alex North, Alexandre Desplat, Alfred Newman, Alfred Schnittke, Andre Previn, Arnold Bax, Basil Poledouris, Bernard Herrmann, Bronisław Kaper, Bruce Broughton, Danny Elfman, Dimitri Tiomkin, Dmitri Shostakovich, Elmer Bernstein, Ennio Morricone, Erich Korngold, Franz Waxman, George Bruns, Gottfried Huppertz, Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore, James Horner, James Newton Howard, Jerry Goldsmith, John Barry, John Powell, John Williams, Maurice Jarre, Max Steiner, Michael Giacchino, Michael Kamen, Miklós Rózsa, Nino Rota, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Sergei Prokofiev, William Alwyn, and William Walton. My tier list would be: Feel free to disagree, and have fun.
  9. I've never thought I would see these two works in one sentence haha
  10. I wonder if Williams can really ever be out of work at this point. He could very well finance entire orchestra, recording, and music production work himself, for the rest of his life. He could send his agents to hunt for indie films (not Indy) that interest him for whatever reason.
  11. Shall I describe it to you, or would you like me to find you a box?
  12. found the middle man! 17:50-19:10 several further ideas for Hedwig's Theme can be found.
  13. Yes. He said that he needed a better director for this film. And Spielberg replied: I know, but they are all dead...
