Thanks for the heads up buddy! I have to say I've gotten to know Robin and he's a good guy and puts out some great CDs for us all. I know I'll be at the signing as I'll be living out there by then. I hope many come out to meet the great line-up of composers. Richard Sherman if you've not met him is an absolute sweetheart. Such a kind soul.

See you all there smile

Looks like a great lineup of composers with a lot of interesting music being offered.

Looks like I'm gonna need some OT for this order...

If some of you haven't yet met Richard Sherman I HIGHLY advise you to go. Where else could you meet one of the true legends in music and especially Disney music. You will be swept away by his kindness. This is looking like one super duper composer extravaganza event!

Someone knows if there will be more guests (like Simon Boswell) in the signing July 28?


 Posted:   Jun 30, 2013 - 9:08 PM   
 By:   Lokutus   (Member)

I kind of doubt that Boswell would travel all the way from the UK just for the signing. The list of other possible guests seems to be based entirely on the list of composers Perseverance has released and hardly anything else... I doubt any of them will be coming - although it would be great if David Newman could join the party as I need to get his Animals United signed since it was impossible to order a copy directly from Pers.

I have to throw in my two cents on the Spartacus CD's. They are absolutely incredible. I was shocked to hear this was from a TV show as it sounds as if it should be attached to the latest billion dollar box office hit. Great job from Joseph. Hope many pick this up and find out what many of us know, that the music is so darn great.

Which one of them would you recommend as the best? smile

When my friend Chris Hatton recommended I look into the music of John Massari, practically the only composer I wasn't familiar with at this signing, I immediately looked him up on IMDB. When I saw he was born in 1957 I continued to be intrigued by a guy from my generation. Then I read this mini-biography:

While Lady Gaga's Bad Romance music video represents his most recent work in creating original sound design, John Massari's career path began to germinate at age 6, after his family moved to Los Angeles, California from New York city.

In the summer of 1960, his first ever theatrical matinée movie experience was a double feature: Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959) and The Time Machine (1960). The musical scores to both films made such a powerful impression upon him, that later that afternoon he sat down at the family piano and began to explore creating original music.

His early musical instrument training included piano, trumpet, and contra bass. In 1974 he studied musical composition with Victor Savant at Chapman College In 1976 he attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where he studied composition and orchestration with Henri Lazarof, and David Raksin as well as private studies in orchestration and conducting with Albert Harris.

While at UCLA, Massari organized concert programs featuring original compositions and arrangements and was awarded the 1978 Frank Sinatra Music Award. From 1978 through 1983 he served as orchestrator for composers Jerry Fielding, David Rose, and Mark Snow. Massari has been a composer for feature films, television, and commercials since 1982. He pursued further studies in composition with Leonard Stein from 1990-91. In 1990 he composed "The War Prayer," a Narrative Oratorio for Orchestra and Chorus.

Massari is probably best known - and most admired - for creating the "Wonderful World of Disney" theme. Other TV music credits include his Cable Ace nominated score for _"Ray Bradbury Theatre, The" (1985)_." Among his feature film work are the scores for MGM's Cult Classic _Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)_ and the comedy Breathing Hard (2001). In addition, he has worked extensively in DVD home entertainment, scoring original compositions for bonus material on films such as "Gone in 60 Seconds" and "Mission to Mars" as well as Disney classics "Old Yeller" and "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". On the commercial side, his music has been heard in commercials for Nextel, Pontiac and IBM with Ear to Ear Audio Banks

An avid explorer of California's Mojave desert, John Massari made a significant precious metals discovery on April 25, 1995.

ANYONE who orchestrated for as totally diverse composers as Jerry Fielding, David Rose, and Mark Snow has really got my attention. Add to that Lady Gaga and you have a universe of musical diversity. I have the KILLER CLOWNS CD somewhere. Time for another listen and looking deeper into this guy.

Honestly I think all the Spartacus CD's are great. I think there are three out right now. I really enjoy the Vengeance one actually smile

Thanks... I'll see how my budget develops over the next few weeks and perhaps get one of them too... too bad Army of Darkness isn't available and seems to be OOP now and Benjamin Wallfisch's fantastic score for Summer in February is not available in the US yet - except as an import...

OK... and ordered... Gods of the Arena sounds actually quite good.
