When was the last time you cried listening to a podcast? I've never cried listening to a podcast but there is a first for everything. I actually had to pull my car over a few weeks ago to wipe away the tears when I first heard this show. I guarantee you will too when you skip to the 44:23 mark of this episode. If you are a fan of film music or film as a whole, this story, which is about John Williams' cue "Leaving Home" from Superman, will open the floodgates. http://underscorepodcast.blogspot.com/2018/11/interview-alan-snelling.html
On the latest episode of UnderScore, we sat down with Alan Snelling, assistant engineer to Eric Tomlinson on Star Wars (as well as Raiders, Superman and the rest of the original trilogy), who shared some wonderful recollections of the historic first recording of the Main Title. The remainder of the episode is a near hour-long musical exploration into the composition, orchestration and storytelling power of that infamous minute and a half of music. Enjoy! [This is the second episode in a six-part series on the score]
