La-La Land has announced their new releases for March -- next week they will release an expanded version of one of Jerry Goldsmith's final scores, for the 2002 film version of Tom Clancy's THE SUM OF ALL FEARS, and a remastered version of Tangerine Dream's score for the low-budget 1983 science-fiction thriller WAVELENGTH; and two weeks later, they will release a newly expanded version of George Romero's 1982 classic CREEPSHOW, this time featuring both John Harrison's original music as well as library cues used in the film.


On April 15, Varese Sarabande will release the score CD for the new action movie NEED FOR SPEED (or as I like to call it, 2 Soon 4 Fast & Furious 7), starring unlikely action hero Aaron Paul (of Breaking Bad fame). The score was composed by Nathan Furst, who also scored Act of Valor for Need for Speed director Scott Waugh.


As most of you probably already know, Steven Price won the latest Original Score Oscar for GRAVITY, while Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez won for FROZEN's original song "Let It Go."

On Tuesday, March 18, the Academy will present ENNIO MORRICONE IN CONVERSATION WITH QUENTIN TARANTINO, live at the Bing Theater at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The event is currently sold out, but there will be a standby line in case seats become available at the last minute.

In other Academy news, last Thursday, at UCLA's Royce Hall, all of the 2013 Original Score nominees -- William Butler, Alexandre Desplat, Thomas Newman, Owen Pallett, Steven Price and John Williams -- took part in the Academy's first ever OSCAR CONCERT. Common hosted the event, which featured critic Elvis Mitchell discussing the scores with their composers, followed by lengthy suites performed by an expert orchestra of studio musicians -- Desplat, Newman and Williams conducted their own work, Pallett conducted the Butler/Pallett Her suite, and Oblivion's Joseph Trapanese conducted Price's Gravity. Vocal performances of the nominated songs included Cristin Milioti (DiCaprio's first wife in The Wolf of Wall Street) singing Her's "The Moon Song," Jill Scott singing "Happy" from Despicable Me 2, and lyricist Kristen Anderson-Lopez doing an extremely impressive rendition of her "Let It Go" from Frozen, accompanied on the piano by her husband/composer Robert Lopez. Though there were occasional moments of awkwardness -- a false start opening, Mitchell's repetitive questions, and too much of the hosts telling the audience what a wonderful evening it was -- it truly was a wonderful evening, and one can only hope the Academy will do it again. Next year would be nice.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

IN SECRET - Gabriel Yared

"After bringing such a dreamy quality to Terence Davies’ far more affecting 'The Deep Blue Sea,' director of photography Florian Hoffmeister’s compositions are surprisingly flat and visually dull, and Gabriel Yared’s suffocating original score is a million miles away from his work on genre gem 'The Talented Mr. Ripley.'"

Geoff Berkshire, Paste Magazine

"This and every other plot turn is so overtly telegraphed -- by swelling music, foreboding dialogue, and lots and lots of pouting -- as to rid the narrative of all momentum, even if you're unfamiliar with Zola's text."

David Lee Dallas, Slant Magazine
