Since our posts were infecting the John Williams Action Music thread, I thought I should start this thread. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RdaWm-w_9U http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bd0S5cvZKAU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RdaWm-w_9U http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIo8BZTjrYo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsLrwHIKlws
To the one, the only, the iconic John Williams, 90 years young! Happy 90th Birthday, Maestro!!! Wait, that's not right... Let's try that again... Nope, still wrong. Getting warmer... Keep circling... Try again... One more try... Ahh, that's better! Here's to another 90 years of incredible music! Now get back to scoring Indy 5, Mangold just changed the edit again.
Ladies and gentlemen, young and old, this may already seem an unusual procedure for me to speak to you all before we begin this memorial/appreciation topic about even the music of a certain dead film and television music composer, but... I know this film and TV composer guy has been dead for a decade already but I am a great fan of this guy's scoring style. In fact, according to TV Tropes, this guy "was a very prolific composer so awesome he even scared the hell out of his peers....He was known for his thunderous, percussive orchestrations, his love for strange musical instruments, and his inventive integration of synthesizers as the 'fifth element' of the orchestra." And so, to commemorate the ten-year anniversary of the death and passing of this legendary film and TV maestro back in 2004, let us talk about and even appreciate the music of Jerry Goldsmith (1929-2004), especially his music for film, TV, etc. Let the Jerry Goldsmith Memorial Appreciation begin!
