Funny I'll be hearing my screen name live by the person who composed it. How cooooool!

At this point get any ticket you can find as this probably will sell out by the 10th. Least we can hope!

Wow! Found out about another composer-conductor conducting and one more classic film composer represented this nite!
Sworn to secrecy on this one but it tells you one thing you already know!
Beyond the incredible line-up already announced there will be more surprises for those attending!

And I can't believe I am saying this for the first time ever!
In this 1500 seat venue there are less than 170 seats left.

It's not but thanks for the heads-up.

We'll be there all night!

This just keeps getting better and better.

Actually that would make 13 composers. They would have to add one more just to avoid being unlucky big grin

Seriously this is getting ridiculously joyous!

I think if I had one more fantasy left (and this seems to be a concert where all dreams come true) it would be one representative from my generation of composers. I know there are only a handful left so it is unlikely, but they are the ones I grew up on. But I miss so many that have passed on and if one could make it, it would be simply the cherry on what is a beautiful cake. We can dream.

Well Peter posted it on his website so I guess it is okay to announce that other composer-conductor I was talking about - Austin Wintory!


The only thing that has changed from the previous list is ALIEN VS. PREDATOR instead of FAST FIVE. And they still haven't mentioned the classic that I am sworn to secrecy on so after all this there are STILL surprises.



Added to the previous list that makes (so far) 28 pieces representing 25 composers!

Those who don't make this may regret it bigtime!

Thor, I can't front airfare but I know where there is a cool rowboat.

He, he...just as long as you give my regard to all the cool composers you get to meet during this awesome event (kidding!).

I still have a tiny hope of meeting Danny Elfman in London come October (maybe even a brief interview), if Richard Kraft would be kind to chip in on my behalf. Haven't contacted him about it yet. I don't know if I'll be able to meet Horner, though, but at least I get to see him live. That will be a nice consolation prize for missing out on this event.

I got that graphic that I used on my FFM website from either the GSPO or Steven Allen Fox or maybe it was Varese's Facebook pages so I figured if they post on their pages, I'm probably not letting any cats out of the bag razz

I wonder if we'll hear To Kill A Mockingbird, that would be a groovy older piece.


EDIT: Well I went back to look for that graphic that I found on Facebook on the GSPO or Steven's or Varese's page and it's now where to be found. Sounds like it was posted, but quickly taken down so that they can announce it at a later date. OOPS if I let the cat out of the bag on that one. I just figured it was OK to post about and let folks know who's coming etc. etc. smile


I heard about a couple things but was told to keep it quiet.
That list looks official to me and is super impressive!
Mancini's LIFE FORCE is cool and rare.

Yesterday's announcement blew my mind to the extent I couldn't take it all in .


The fact that this is more than double the amount of pieces any GSPO concert has ever had and with 3 minutes minimum per score it is an astounding all night extravaganza. At first I wondered about local rules limiting such an event, until I realized that famous Hollywood Bowl concert from 1963 must have broke all the rules too. As long as the orchestra and composers were up to it they ALL wanted to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime film music event even if the Bowl didn't empty out until the wee hours of the night.

The batch of classic composers at the top is self-explanatory.


And last but not least, forget about the history of film music, based on the history of VARESE and the sheer number of scores they released from Bernard Herrmann, Franz Waxman, Elmer Bernstein, John Williams and Bill Conti, a couple of these guys have got to pop up somewhere on this night!


NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK AT IT, IT IS GOING TO BE A CONCERT FOR THE AGES!

This next puzzles me. Silvestri and Davis are two fantastic composers but why do they get two.

Stargate is David Arnold, not Don Davis, so that explains that one wink

Well I would say everything on there is amazing though I would prefer Starship Troopers for Poledouris.

Thanks Jon. I corrected that. Nice to know somebody is on top of this stuff.

I'm all for hearing another performance of The Abyss, that was one of my favorites to hear live.
