  1. Anyone else here a fan of his action/chase music? I love the musical complexity. So I'm trying to expand my John Williams library, so does anyone have any awesome selections of Williams Action cues?
  2. Concert tonight at the Royal Albert Hall. Anyone going?
  3. With another two superb score expansions under his belt, Matessino appears to be steamrolling through the Spielberg/Williams collaboration like a freight train. With Spielberg and Williams both clearly invested in Matessino's assemblies, there's an obvious question: what next? Matessino has now expanded 8 of their 28 collaborations, with a further 4 previously expanded (incomplete) by other producers. 4 scores are apparently licenced to another label (the Indy scores). Assuming no scores from the last 6 years will see an expansion anytime soon (due to union fees or otherwise), whic
  4. Solo is being recorded in London right now so Williams theme for Han is already done. I guess that makes sense since it comes out in May. I'm actually excited to hear Williams' theme and Powell's score.
  5. Someone knows Czech movie The Elementary School? The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1991. In this movie is a scene where boys ride on bicycles and playing music variation on John WIlliams. E.T. Extra Terrestrial was a temp track. I think.
  6. I've been a lurker on this forum for a little while now and I'm amazed at all the wealth of the knowledge here! I'm sure many people here agree that engineer Bruce Botnick is one of the best, if not the best recording engineer for film scores. His work on Jerry Goldsmith's scores, Alan Menken's work, and especially my favorite from the maestro himself E.T., sound so clear and warm even compared to today's modern film recordings. I've always wondered: How does he achieve this? What is his "secret" if there's even one?
  7. Hi JWFan, I'm trying to locate where the original scores to Rhythm in Motion are located. Sources told me that UNT had them, but the librarian didn't know. Hoping to analyze them as part of a jazz research grant at my university. Cheers!
  8. Hello friends, I just wanted to bring you a very good video! This is a compilation of the best songs of John Williams, really good! I did it as a tribute to his work. I hope you enjoy! Thanks a lot! PD: I'm Spanish and my English is very bad, sorry
  9. I have 2 tickets (not together) to John Williams Film Night at Tanglewood on 8/13/16 8PM. Tickets are PDF and can be emailed once payment is received (Paypal preferred).

  10. Hi, 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
  11. So a couple of years ago I was at the Hollywood Bowl and I took this video with my iPhone. I'm sure someone else has posted a similar video of it, probably better quality but if not or if any of you didn't see this, here you go. It's the last track on the Tintin Album and at the concert it was called The Duel and had a video of different sword duels throughout movie history. Anyway, enjoy xox
  12. Not sure if this has been posted previously, but, it convinces me that I'm moving to Europe. BKL: Packing as we speak.
  13. Hello all! I'm selling one ticket for the concert on September 28th at the Phoenix Symphony Hall. This is a chance to see John Williams AND Steven Spielberg together on stage. It is also a charity event, so you'll enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime evening AND do good! I am stuck in Europe for work so cannot make it. If you are interested, please contact me at francis.barel@gmail.com. Thank you. http://www.jwfan.com/?p=5833
  14. Hey, so I'm not sure if this has been up on the site before, but I wanted to start something about comparing Williams' composing style (both concert and film) to other modern composers (Shore, Zimmer and his clones, Elfman, Silvestri, Howard, etc). I want to start this because I started a Film Club at my school, and I have some friends I'm introducing to the glory of film score (and Williams for that matter), and I wanted a good way (both layman and theory oriented) to explain them certain aspects. I am not trained in theory at all, and I'm just a young, teenage enthusiast of film scores,
  15. This is a new song I created, for a "planned" movie. It plays as Alex Harper (a character based on Tintin) walks out of class clutching one-half of the treasure map that leads to a school treasure. However, Alex and his friends, Cassandra and Archie (archibald Haddock, anyone?) run into Allan, the school bully. They start arguing, and during that, Alex drops the paper, which is promptly picked up by an elementary student who runs off with it. Shortly, Alex and Allan find that it's missing and chase after the kid into the school fare. After Alex catches the kid in slow motion (Pursuit of the F
  16. A collection of some words I've had for the older Maestro over the last few years: I still hold that much of his 2000s film works outside of Harry Potter and Geisha were significantly weaker than he's ever been. But Tintin and War Horse (War Horse especially) have made me eat my own words. The Maestro, by luck, or by sheer skill and talent has still got it. I genuinely believe that if my assessment that the maestro had run out of steam was true, he would not have been able to give us the two scores he has this year. I hear excitement and energy from him. With Tintin, yes I still hear
