Nice subject! Good to see Whale Rider there. I also particularly liked the Deborah Lurie track.

An important person in female (electronic) film music is Suzanne Ciani, who scored Joel Schumacher's The Incredible Shrinking Woman in 1981.

Other ones I thought of was Abigail Mead (Full Metal Jacket) and Jocelyn Pook (Eyes Wide Shut).


I haven't heard about Ciani, thanks for the tip.

Yes, there are several other great female film composers I had to leave out for now -- Elisabeth Lutyens, Illona Sekacz, Jennie Muskett and those you mention (Abigail Mead is - as you may know - a pseudonym for Vivian Kubrick, Stanley's daughter).

I can't read anything because I only know one language. Sucks to be American sometimes frown

Good luck with it Thor, many congrats!

this might help.

[I haven't heard about Ciani, thanks for the tip.

Really? She was, along with Tangerine Dream, Patrick O'Hearn and Yanni, the big seller on Private Music in the late 80s/early 90s. She has also been working with Vangelis.

She was really an important figure in electronic music from the early 80s on.

Here she is on Letterman:

Wow, that's a cool clip. Wish it were in better quality.

The first international web-cast of film music. Good for you. In answer to your question, "Why do you think there are so few female composers?" well, just look at the history of women around the world and you'll see what I mean.

True, and thanks.

It seems, however, that film music is even MORE male-dominated than other walks of life -- even in a historical perspective? Fortunately, things have been turning for the last few years and more and more women are getting into it now.

Thanks. Yeah, I can see how that episode would have a broader appeal outside culturally retarded Norway. wink

Nice show! Favorites included were 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10.

I would have chosen a track from the 80s too, like Wildcats, Promised Land, Russkies or The Package. Other favorites not present include Intersection, ER, The Trigger Effect, A Perfect Murder, Unbreakable, Collateral, Batman Begins, Freedomland, Blood Diamond and The Dark Knight.

But of course I understand the time limit you had.

Really enjoying so far! One quibble though (it's constructive, I promise!) - the interviews seem to be mixed a tad low compared to your voice and the orchestra.

Other than that, topnotch! This English speaker appreciates it. big grin

Quite interesting. Apart from the low sound level (as you say a "technical error") my only "complaint" would be: couldn´t you have done the whole thing with a video-camera? It would have been much nicer to actually SEE James Horner & David Newman ?!

P.S.: ...and I hope you know that celluloid has not been used for movies anymore since 1951! big grin

Yeah, I'm really sorry about the low volume on some of the interviews. The microphone was accidentally set on 'low' and I didn't discover it untill I played it back (must have accidentally switched inside my bag). Stupid. If I'd had a good and compact video camera, I would definitely have used it.

And yes, follow me, 'celluloid' is an outdated term, but 'celluloid tunes' has been an established term for my "company" since I had the site with the same name back in 2000, so I kinda stuck with it.

Thanks for the feedback, guys!

Good work, Thor!

Thank you.

I've decided to update the headline every time I do a new episode, with (EN) meaning English and (NOR) meaning Norwegian. FYI.

Actually it would have been quite easy to improve that a bit! I downloaded "http://celluloidtunes.no/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/celluloidtunes8.mp3" for souvenir reasons from your site, then used a software to normalize those low volume parts to -0,1dB and so got an almost normale volume for the interviews.

If you like, you can download the modified version here:

I hope you do not mind my tinkering about with your file. wink

In any case I can delete it at anytime if you wish so.

Thanks, man. That was much better. I'll replace my file with yours asap!
