I'm also going to the symposium. Changed my travel plans and took an extra day off from work so I could do so...

OK... hopefully see you all there on Wednesday and rest of you on Friday. If I can find it smile

btw, any ideas how are the Joe Dante tickets selling? Are any screenings still available? I suppose I would probably go on 3rd (The Howling and Small soldiers), since there is nothing to do for all day... I am not sure if there will be any chance to get from the symposium to the Dante screening in time on the 2nd - unless the symposium will end earlier then expected. or perhaps attend the 21:00 screening of Gremlins on Wednesday if the tickets will be still available.

If everything goes smoothly, I MIGHT be able to catch a press group interview with Joe Dante on the 2nd. But only if all transport goes as planned and I'm not delayed.

I'd be interested in hooking up for an informal dinner on the evening of the 2nd, if anyone can. I have an ancient cell phone, but I'll bring a Samsung Galaxy and can be reached at tjhaga at yahoo dot com during the stay. You can also send me an SMS at 0047 41104534.

Of course, we'll all meet on the "formal" dinner on Friday, but it would be cool to hang out for dinners etc. beyond that.

Symposium programme.
It seems there is no signing planned :-/




btw, it would be great if we could meet also somewhere on Thursday for lunch or something... I suppose there won't be any chance to get in time for the Dante screening on Wednesday. I will be definitely stopping by at the Austrian Film Museum to check for the tickets for Thursday evening.

I will be at the symposium too. The signings have never been part of the official schedule so that should not mean that there won't be one. However with Bramson in the morning and Horner in the early afternoon and Newman right in the middle of the program it seems rather difficult to fit one in unless everybody stays on for the Q & A.

Well, see you at the symposium or at the restaurant. Have a nice trip to Vienna.

OK... my plans are:

On Wednesday (tomorrow!) I'll finish work at noon and the get into the car to be there at 15.15 for Horner's presentation and the possible autograph session.

Then I'll try to get tickets for Gremlins at 21.00 (BTW shouldn't the Symposium's Q&A session finish by that time?).

I'll drive back the same night: the next day (Thursday) I'll drive again to Vienna with friends for the Peter Gabriel concert, and back again to Budapest, to drop off my friends.

On Friday I'll drive the third time to Vienna, to the Gmoakeller to meet you all...

It seems I will be driving a lot of the next few days.

Helloooooo!!!

I'll be landing in Vienna on Thursday afternoon, and am hoping to go to the Joe Dante event (THE HOWLING and SMALL SOLDIERS that night)... I'm planning on heading straight from the airport to the filmmuseum in order to try and get a ticket, hope there will still be some available!

I hope to see some of you there, and / or at the Friday concert of course.

Thor, does the fact that my name is on the first post of this thread mean that a place has been reserved for me at the meet-up? If so, great see you all there, if not ah well it's my own fault for not confirming my attendance sooner and I hope to see some of you about at the venue anyway.

Yes, Mark, you're confirmed for the dinner!

Thanks Thor! And thanks for the swift response!

Just a quick query:

Will ANYONE be arriving in Vienna tomorrow? Or is everyone coming on Thursday?

Attended the symposium today... It was great!

The highlight was of course James Horner giving an honest discussion about his work process and his feelings on the state of film music today (which confirms how he felt in the BBC interview). The moderator was non other than Robert Townson, who just loves to travel smile

I was able to get an autograph from Mr. Horner, but I was among the few since the event organizer took him away from the crowd very fast even though he wasn't minding signing and taking pictures with fans.

Steve Bramson gave a nice lecture with examples of scenes he scored projected on the screen and him commenting on them afterwards.

Then at the end came the mock up recording session with David Newman and Dennis Sands, recording a piece from the new Tarzan animated film that Newman wrote recently. Pretty technical but nonetheless fascinating to witness what it's like to record film music with its multiple takes, recording different instruments in each and then putting it all together right there for final mixing and playback.

Mr. Newman was definitely more "accessible" than Horner, and I had no problem taking pictures with him and getting multiple covers signed.

Looking forward to Thursday's concert where I should be getting backstage access through a friend of mine with connections (keeping my fingers crossed).

Someone could to get a Cd cover signed by James Horner in the backstage of the Thursday´s concert? I would be very grateful and I´ll pay for the CD + shipping cost.

I was at the symposium too. The James Horner talk was quite remarkable, at one point openly questioning his own place in the changed climate of contemporary Hollywood. It was getting so low in morals that the organizer actually intervened, and prompted Horner to tell anecdotes about James Cameron! Which Horner did, though a bit grudgingly.
I saw several people taking notes, maybe someone from here, and can quote him?

There was an audience question about Horner studying with György Ligeti, and Horner's recollections about that were fascinating.

The "signing" was a disgrace: Horner, more than happy to sign as many autographs as he could, was literally shielded away and then dragged away by the organizers, clearly against his wishes. I was among the lucky few, as he signed my STAR TREK III Capitol LP in the tumult...

I was able to chat a few worlds with David Newman - I am impressed how friendly and modest, even humble, he was both during his fascinating demonstration and his interactions with the audience.

In the evening, Joe Dante. A born comedian! During his introduction to GREMLINS I was thinking, this is well-rehearsed comedy routine, but when the Q&A session began, he turned out to be great at improvisations, too. A GREMLINS III is being made without him? "I can't complain, as I'm the guy who started his career by ripping off JAWS." He signed by GREMLINS Geffen LP, already signed by Jerry Goldsmith, and mentioned that there are some crappy songs on this (the LP), but recently "they released the proper score". (Yeah, I thought, "they" released the proper score, but this led to the shutting down of the label.)

One down, two to go. Today back to Vienna, for the Peter Gabriel concert!

Went to the thursday concert and it was great...BUT... James Horner did NOT conduct anything. He just came on the stage at the end, thanked the audience and shared how shy he is and that he never does public events like this, etc... He was moved though, I could clearly see tears in his eyes.

Still, my understanding was that he would conduct one or two pieces at the end... so that was a disappointment that he didn't. Maybe you guys going to the "official" friday concert will get luckier and he will? Please share on this post afterwards... I'm curious.

That is a bit disappointing. Still, very much looking forward to it tonight.
