COVER
The Fall of Troy
A summer blockbuster has its score and composer replaced at the last minute -- big deal, right? Well, yes, this time it is a big deal because you won't be able to hear Oscar-winner Gabriel Yared's fantastic opus for Troy. But you can read what the composer has to stay about the sacking of his best work yet. by Jeff Bond
 
FEATURES
Comment of the Apes
Metal bowls, slide whistles, orchestra overkill and the death of subtlety -- Jerry Goldsmith covers it all in his audio commentary that accompanies the 35th Anniversary DVD release of Planet of the Apes. by Jeff Bond
High Above the Ground
Yes, it may be hard to think of us mentioning this word outside the context of Lord of the Rings, but there is another "shire" that deserves attention: David Shire. The talented composer talks about his film work and his latest contributions to Broadway. by Stephen B. Armstrong
Forbidden Planet
Everyone remembers the 1956 sci-fi classic Forbidden Planet, but few fans know the behind-the-scenes story of the music that was (and wasn't) used in the film's theatrical trailer and final cut. by Donald John Long
A Sprig of Basil
For three decades Basil Poledouris has avoided being typecast, scoring films in virtually every major genre. And he's even managed to create a few influential works -- like Conan the Barbarian, RoboCop and The Hunt for Red October among others -- in the process. by S. Mark Rhodes
News
Fred Karlin 1936-2004.
