  1. Hello everyone, even though I've been secretly reading this forum for years, this is my first post and I'd like to start with a review of a quite recently released compilation of rather obscure film music, even for a long-time film music fan like myself. "The Film Music of Mark Isaacs Vol. 1" is a 2-disk set released by Australian soundtrack label 1M1-Records in April 2020. It is a compilation of four nowadays more or less unknown cartoon scores from the 80s. A short introduction to the composer, who is unfortunately rather unknown for most folks around here I'm afraid:
  2. Time for the most epic poll of this forum! We all know that an apocalyptic choir has the power to make every fight scene unbeliavably epic. Many composers have tried over the years. But what's your favorite action scene scored with an epic choir? The duel between Qui-Gonn, Obi-Wan and Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace? The last battle for the fate of Middle Earth? Or Neo and Smith flying around and punching each other? Let's choose the best apocalyptic choir of all time!
  3. Some news on the film concert front! A little later this month, Rudy in Concert is coming to Los Angeles for the first time - March 30 at the Microsoft Theater. It's produced by the same company that presents the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, and this will be the same format - the full film projected in HD with a live orchestra performing the score in tandem. Should be a really awesome show, with such an epic score by Jerry Goldsmith. Ru-dy! Ru-dy! Ru-dy! Also, there will be a pre-show panel with the "real" Rudy (Rudy Ruettiger), star Sean Astin, and the film's director and wri
  4. The Specialized Soundtrack Market has it changed or stayed the same? For me it times have change. In 1997 when the RCA Victor Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition 2 CD Releases , The 2000 Superman The Movie Rhino Records 2 CD Release and the 8 Disc Superman The Music 1978-1988 Box Set came out those where the peak of the specialized soundtrack market. Buying CD Soundtracks and expanded soundtracks is not the same now as it was in 1997 most people are streaming or buying their music off of iTunes , Amazon Music , Google Play Music , listening to it via Spotify etc. Sure you have company's and labe
  5. Hi everyone I am interested in seeing what peoples favorite moment of John Williams work that was more dark or scary rather than happy or upbeat.
  6. I vote THE LOST WORLD. Wish we'd get a proper expansion. Williams really does a good job of writing music to match the jungle setting of the film. The main theme works great, too. Very militant, like the antagonists of the film.
  7. Hello JWFAN, This event is now SOLD OUT! I believe this is my first post though I've been a lurking for 11 years. I mostly post on the FSM board under drivingmissdaisy. I wanted to announce my 5th Annual FFM event. You may have heard about our previous events in which we had the likes of John Debney, Richard M. Sherman, Graeme Revell, William Ross, John Ottman, Stu Phillips, Tyler Bates, Brian Tyler, Christopher Young and about 30 other wonderful composers. If you are interested in coming email me and I can give you more info on how to request seats which I'll start doing in a couple of wee
  8. What scores do you plan on buying in the near future? For me... CONAN THE BARBARIAN (Intrada) FLESH & BLOOD (LaLaLand) THE GOLDEN CHILD (LaLaLand) NORTH BY NORTHWEST (Intrada) -- Believe it or not, this is one of my least favorite Herrmann scores... DAY OF THE DEAD (LaLaLand)
  9. What film scores do you hope are released some day, under any record label? My #1 is Herrmann's OBSESSION. I'd love a cleaned-up and full presentation of the score. Personally, I think it's better than VERTIGO, although very similar in some areas.
  10. I just spotted a very interesting interview with composer/orchestrator Conrad Pope on the Film Music Magazine's site. http://www.filmmusicmag.com/?p=8734 As always Pope is gentlemanly and very articulate about his craft and business. He is the man behind the orchestrations of some the biggest names in Hollywood, John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith among them, and a long time veteran in the business. It is always a joy to read his thoughts and I am very happy that he is getting some of the spotlight now with his score to My Week with Marilyn because he is without a doubt a talented, intelligent m
  11. I just came across this recording from the second Fans of Film Music gathering at Dark Delicacies where a group of film composer formed a panel to whom the audience could put questions. They also discussed in length the state of modern film composing, the priviledge of composing for films and many other subjects. The composers in the panel were Charles Fox, Lee Holdridge, Brad Fiedel, Nicholas Pike, David Newman, Brian Tyler, Peter Hackman, Christopher Young and Ken Thorne and the event was hosted by Film Music Magazine's own Daniel Schweiger.
