Battle Plans

John Frizzell and Randy Edelman marshal their musical forces for Gods and Generals

By Daniel Schweiger


It's as daunting a task to score the Civil War as it is to film it. Just ask John Frizzell and Randy Edelman, the composers who've been entrusted with giving musical voice to producer Ted Turner and director Ronald Maxwell's gargantuan (and still ongoing) epic that depicts the war between the states through the peo

by Daniel Schweiger


This Lost Issue interview took place all the way back in late 1997!

DS: Your main theme of One Night Stand really helps to gives the film a romantic quality.

MF: I temped the film with a couple of different things for the love the

Lost Issue: Mike Figgis Interview Part 1 of 2

Blowing His Own Horn

For director Mike Figgis, composing is more than a One Night Stand

by Daniel Schweiger


This Lost Issue interview took place all the way back in late 1997!

There are indelible images and attitudes that we associate with film noir; the smoke of a femme fatale's cigarette, a city's wet streets, a corpse hidden in the past's closet, the feeling of morality thrown t

The War Zone

Hans Zimmer goes to battle for Black Hawk Down

By Daniel Schweiger


Excerpted from FSM Vol. 7, No. 1, on sale soon...

If you didn't know that Hans Zimmer detested man's habit of blasting his neighbor to bits, then you might think his music positively adored it. Listen to such such turbo-charged scores as Gladiator, Mission Impossible 2, The Peacemaker and Crimson Tide, and you can hear the blood and thu

The Madman and his Muse

Composer Angelo Badalamenti takes another wild ride with director David Lynch for Mulholland Drive

by Daniel Schweiger


Edited for FSD

Sure, David Lynch was pretty wacked before he met Angelo Badalamenti. The scores for Lynch's first three films showed a talent for combining melody with sound effects, as could be heard in Peter Iver's industrial backdrop to Eraserheard, John Morris' elegantly

Wearing the Crown Again

Bill Conti makes a return to big budget films on The Thomas Crown Affair

by Daniel Schweiger

Part 1 of 2

When looking at Bill Conti's career in Hollywood, the one word that immediately comes to mind is prolific. Almost a hundred films, dozens of TV movies and shows, overseeing the music of sixteen Academy Award telecasts (besides winning three of them), conducting orchestras the world-over, and playing live to t
