  1. Hello, people...I'm back! Anyway, way back in the year 1977 (the same year that George Lucas' original Star Wars movie came out on 32 to 40 movie theaters and unexpectedly became the most gigantic hit of the land during the summer of 1977 and the following years), while working on the classic science fiction movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"... Filmmaker Steven Spielberg and his music composer John Williams had this Disney song in mind: The very sounds of Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards as Jiminy Cricket singing the song "When You Wish Upon a Star" from 1940's Pinocchio and written by Ned Washington and Leigh Harline. Here's more info about that song as well as the lyrics and the linked video: https://www.songfacts.com/facts/cliff-edwards/when-you-wish-upon-a-star Classic, isn't it, folks? Anyway, I don't know about you guys, but as for me... Just as both Steven Spielberg and John Williams had the Disney song "When You Wish Upon a Star" from 1940's Pinocchio in mind while working on Close Encounters of the Third Kind way back in 1977... As for myself, in more modern times like this, and I hate to be off-topic here, but while I was working on a rather whimsical idea involving three young men or brothers who flew themselves through outer space in a flying white Chevrolet Equinox car to escape the turmoil into which the planet Earth has fallen... I was looking for a song that could help connect any or all of my ideas and concepts and elements that I was trying to assemble for 14 years and counting and help meld any or all of them into a unified whole, and what I always have in mind could well be one of my favorite songs from my own childhood. And that song I'm talking about in question could be "Dreams to Dream (Tanya's Version)" as sung by The Powerpuff Girls' Blossom's original voice actress Cathy Cavadini and written by the late James Horner and Will Jennings for the rather obscure and forgotten 1991 Steven Spielberg-produced animated movie An American Tail: Fievel Goes West. You see, every time I hear Fievel's sister Tanya's version of the song "Dreams to Dream" from the movie "An American Tail: Fievel Goes West", as sung by Cathy Cavadini, I hope that everything will fall into place very soon as far as my dream epic movie project, the title of which I have yet to finalize, and especially as far as giving the epic movie or story of my dreams the hook I'm looking for. . But in addition to Tanya's version of Dreams to Dream as sung by Cathy Cavadini in the actual An American Tail: Fievel Goes West movie itself... There is also the version as sung in the end credits of that movie by Linda Ronstadt... As well as the rendition of that song as heard in the An American Tail: A Musical Adventure with Fievel and Friends companion soundtrack album that they put out around the time of Fievel Goes West's 1991 theatrical release. Beautiful song, isn't it, folks? Anyway, and I hate to be off-topic once again, but I was thinking... Not only I wanted to pretty much hang the epic film or story of my dreams on the mood that song "Dreams to Dream (Tanya's Version)" from An American Tail: Fievel Goes West created, and especially the way it affected me personally and emotionally, but if I do, say, use the actual vintage Cathy Cavadini recording of Tanya's version of the song "Dreams to Dream" from Fievel Goes West on the soundtrack during one sequence for my dream epic movie when the Chevrolet Equinox car magically flies away from Earth's atmosphere to ride towards outer space -- then in effect, [almost] similar to how John Williams' music score for Steven Spielberg's 1977 Close Encounters of the Third Kind quoted Disney's Pinocchio's When You Wish Upon A Star, my possible usage of "Dreams to Dream (Tanya's Version)" by Cathy Cavadini from An American Tail: Fievel Goes West in my dream epic film -- especially on the soundtrack during one such sequence for such a thing where the Chevrolet Equinox car (with the aforementioned three young men or brothers inside) magically flies away from Earth towards outer space -- well, all that could hopefully turn an already beautiful piece of music from some obscure and forgotten animated movie produced by Steven Spielberg at the beginning of the 1990s, ( in my case, "Dreams to Dream (Tanya's Version)" from 1991's An American Tail: Fievel Goes West) into something even more breathtakingly beautiful than what it already is, especially through a different environment like outer space. But even so, then, I will always have the song "Dreams to Dream" (especially the version sung by Cathy Cavadini as Fievel's sister Tanya Mousekewtiz) from An American Tail: Fievel Goes West in my mind not only for my dream epic film production, but also for that flying Chevrolet Equinox car space travel scene that I hope to include in my dream epic movie idea, similar to the way that Steven Spielberg and John Williams always had the Disney song "When You Wish Upon a Star" from 1940's Pinocchio in their minds while they were working on the 1977 classic sci-fi movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Anyway, apologies for the long post, but the question is: What would you really think if you happen to hear the song "Dreams to Dream (Tanya's Version)" from An American Tail: Fievel Goes West playing on the soundtrack during a scene in my dream epic movie where the Chevrolet Equinox car (with three young men or brothers inside the vehicle) flies or rides through outer space on the big movie theater screen and especially with the likes of Disney/Lucasfilm's Industrial Light & Magic (or ILM for short) or someplace contributing some breathtakingly beautiful effects movie magic to such a scene as the Chevrolet Equinox car magically flying through space set to Cathy Cavadini's rendition of Tanya's version of the song Dreams to Dream from An American Tail: Fievel Goes West playing on the soundtrack? Well, wouldn't all that be breathtakingly beautiful or something else entirely if such a movie scene ever do come true? Just wondering...

  4. I love the great re-recordings of classic swing music featured in Swing Kids and The Rocketeer. Has Horner recorded more swing music for use in other films?
  5. I recently listened to this score, after being absent from it for more than 15 years. I listened to it very much when it was fresh, and it was one of my favorite soundtracks. Now I think parts of it sound horribly dated, to the point of being cringe-worthy - I'm of course referring to some of the electronic elements. What do you think?
  6. Trailer is out for this new James Horner scored IMAX documentary

  9. http://buysoundtrax.stores.yahoo.net/hyorsobydond.html SRP: $17.95 HYPERSPACE is a limited edition release of 1000 units. FIRST 50 Copies will be autographed by composer Don Davis LISTEN TO A SOUND CLIP FROM the score for HYPERSPACE https://tinyurl.com/ybzl7437 Dragon’s Domain Records, distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents the long out-of-print orchestral score to HYPERSPACE, composed by Don Davis. One of the first feature length STAR WARS parodies, HYPERSPACE came out in 1984. Known in England as GREMLOIDS and as GREMLORDS in France and Germany, HYPERSPACE was writer/director Todd Durham’s second and last film as director, working with ambitiously cost-conscious low-budget producer Earl Owensby. The movie was released in September 1984, but it wasn’t until 1988 that the film received a wider release on home video. Starring comedians Chris Elliott and Paula Poundstone and filmed in North Carolina, HYPERSPACE imitates STAR WARS in context and execution from its opening text crawl into infinity to its inscrutable helmeted monarch of menace, Lord Buckethead (played by Robert Bloodworth, but voiced by Barry Cooper). Lord Buckethead is hot on the trail of vital radio transmissions stolen from the corrupt Galactic Alliance by members of an allied resistance force. Buckethead intends to get them back, aided by diminutive, Jawa-robed minions known as gremloids. However, unbeknownst to him, he has made a serious navigational error, and rather than reaching his intended destination he lands instead upon the Earth, where he and his gremloid faction march into the closest small town and proceed with their mission. A purposefully STAR WARS-esque orchestral score was provided by newly-minted composer Don Davis, in his first feature film score. Performed by a live, 56-piece orchestra, Davis’s music provided the film with its missing gravitas; and it made enough of an impression among Hollywood film music folk that it led to a lasting and respectful career scoring films and television, including TV’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and SEAQUEST DSV and blockbuster films like THE MATRIX series and JURASSIC PARK III. “Obviously the movie was a parody of STAR WARS, so the only approach to music I could logically take was similarly a parody of John Williams’s work,” said Davis in an exclusive new interview for the album notes. “I got as close to STAR WARS as I could get without it being STAR WARS.” Davis provided the right kind of feeling to the music which gave the score a suitably grandiose dynamic and aided in the film’s parodist nature. The composer’s approach to supporting the film’s inherent humor was based on “not writing funny music,” but scoring the movie with absolute seriousness, thereby allowing the parody to exist within the film and among its characters in a world where even the most farcical of circumstances are treated with genuine integrity. “The concept of playing it straight, as if the show were not a comedy, was what we wanted to do with our movie,” said Davis. “We treated it as if it really was STAR WARS and everything was completely serious.” The film came and went without much ado or remembrance, but the music was noticed and that gave Davis an auspicious debut in this, his first opportunity to make the jump into… HYPERSPACE. The score was first released on an 11-track CD in 1993, paired with another Davis score. This expanded reissue from Dragon’s Domain Records includes eight previously-unreleased tracks. HYPERSPACE is a limited edition release of 1000 units and can be ordered at www.buysoundtrax.com. The first 50 units sold through the Buy Soundtrax website will include a booklet autographed by the composer.

  10. I was thinking about the famous "I'm flying" scene from Titanic and, in particular, the precise moment where the music reaches its emotional climax. On paper, you might expect the score to swell at the moment Jack and Rose kiss, but it actually reaches its emotional peak a few seconds later when Rose reaches up her hand to hold Jack's head closer. The moment becomes a lot more sensual and somehow more romantic as a result. I realise this is just intelligent, intuitive film scoring, but the timing of these things always fascinates me. (2:09) Another example off the top of my head is the final scene in Home Alone when Kevin and Old Man Marley share their moment through the window. One could score it so the music swells when Marley raises his hand in greeting, but Williams holds it for that little moment longer until Kevin returns the gesture, when both characters have completed their arcs with regards to each other. This video below actually has the alternate “O Holy Night” version of the cue too, and you can see the emotional journey is exactly the same in both pieces of music. (00:47) I’m curious to know if you can think of any other examples like this. Moments where the music could reach an emotional peak at one moment, but actually climaxes at another for a stronger emotional impact.
  11. Hello, Im looking for the full orchestral score notation for the cue The River Crossing to Stalingrad from the film Enemy at the Gates by James Horner. Does anybody have a copy of this that they can send me or know where i may find a copy? Thanks Adam

  13. According to Film Score Monthly, Simon Franglen is recording his score for Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven, based on themes by the late James Horner. Franglen worked with Horner on several films as arranger, score producer and synth programmer for The Amazing Spider-Man, Avatar, The Karate Kid, Wolf Totem and The 33. http://filmmusicreporter.com/2016/03/11/simon-franglen-scoring-antoine-fuquas-the-magnificent-seven/ This should be an interesting score to watch when it comes out fall 2016.

  19. As I was considering the logistics of the Top 10 Horner Scores poll, I started thinking . . . while we're at it, why not dig a little deeper? We never did this one for JW, but Mr. Horner is a little more on everyone's mind right now, and a lot of us are spending some quality time digging deeper into the man's opuses anyway. I thought it would be interesting to see not only how his broader works compared to one another, but which individual compositions floated near the top in people's minds. There may be scores that don't make the other Top 10 list that have single pieces that would stand out to a lot of people here. The rules are pretty much the same here as on the other poll (post your list from mostest-favorite on down), with one extra guideline to keep in mind: what with so many different versions of some scores available out there, it would be best--though not absolutely required, I guess--to stick to OST titles and arrangements where possible. If a piece you want to list wasn't on the OST but did appear in a later release, that's fine, of course; but the point here isn't to see how various versions of the same piece compete against one another. If you like one portion of a piece but don't care for the rest, it should still be listed by the title of the entire piece, not as "the second half of 'Bird of Prey Decloaks' from 1:43 on" and the like. Naturally, commentary on these is also welcome and encouraged--and makes for a much better place to specify which parts of the piece you like best, along with the whens and whys of it. I'll publish the results of this poll at the same time as the other one (whenever that winds up being). And, like the other one . . . I haven't yet had time to sort through my own choices yet, but that's no reason to put off everyone else's tee time.
  20. Is there a Thread about the music of "The Land Before Time" Series from James Horner and Michael Tavera? James Horner composed the score for the first movie in 1988. I love this music! The music for all the sequels of The Land Before Time was composed by Michael Tavera. And I found the music on youtube. I like the sound of Tavera's music and I think he made a good job in this films. So what do you think about the music of "The Land Before Time" Series?
