Does John Williams sign autographs?
Greg posted a topic in JOHN WILLIAMSHi, I'm new here so please forgive me if I do anything stupid. My name is Greg as you can see and I really love John Williams music. I would very much love to get his autograph. I'm far from rich, but it means enough to me that I would fly somewhere to get it. I live in Seattle. I'm thinking of flying to L.A. as I see he is doing some concerts at the Hollywood bowl. Does anyone know what my odds are of getting him to sign if I wait hours before the show? Or is there a better place? Thank you so much for your help it means a lot. Greg
The 'Hollywood Sound' Thread
petertos posted a topic in General DiscussionI have noticed that many of us are composers of our own original music. This topic is for you. There are currently some recorded VST orchestras on the market to use for creating music. One of them is the East West Orchestra, and they claim to have that 'Hollywood Sound'. This sound, which is in my opinion the current 'Hollywood sound', with an epic aura and modulated instruments (especially brass). Well. The fact is that the current 'Hollywood sound' is not 'JW sound', in my opinion. JW likes to use a more Vienna orchestra with a more european approach. This is due that probably he started creating music for films when the current 'Hollywood sound' wasn't like this one. Do you have any opinion on this? Have you tried the East West orchestra and do you have any opinions? What is better, the current 'Hollywood sound' or the 'JW sound' (in case they are different). In my opinion I prefer the 'JW sound' or a more european approach (perhaps a little older) to orchestral music. I hope you like this topic and most important, have an opinion on it. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can compare the EW sounds here http://www.soundsonline.com/Symphonic-Orchestra (look for DEMOS tab) and the JW music you love. Is it the same? Is it better? Is it worse?
