TALKING SOUNDTRACKS: INTERVIEW WITH STEVEN C. SMITH – THE MUSIC OF BERNARD HERRMANN PART 2
http://www.cinematicsound.net/talking-soundtracks-interview-steven-c-smith-the-music-of-bernard-herrmann-part-2/

In June 2021, for TALKING SOUNDTRACKS, Jason Drury talked to the four-time Emmy nominated journalist, writer, and producer of over 200 documentaries about music and cinema, Steven C Smith, about his book Music by Max Steiner: The Epic Life of Hollywood’s Most Influential Composer

In May 2022, Jason had the opportunity to talk to Steven again about his first book, published in 1991, about another pioneering and influential composer in the history of film music, A Heart at Fire’s Center: The Life and Music of Bernard Herrmann.

Part one of their interview concerned Herrmann’s radio career, his collaborations with Orson Welles leading to the beginning of his film music career with Citizen Kane.

In Part 2, they discuss the composer’s career up to his premature death in 1975, and feature the most important partnership in his career, with director Alfred Hitchcock. You’ll also hear more of Herrmann’s great music from original recordings and re-recordings.

Enjoy.

BRAND NEW EPISODE

THE OSCARS SUCK! THE IFMCA v THE OSCARS

http://www.cinematicsound.net/the-oscars-suck-part-2-the-ifmca-vs-the-oscars/

This was a brain dump. I had an idea for this show last week but no real vision, so I just hit record and voila... a fanboy rant show where I compare/contrast the IFMCA Awards and the Oscars.

I'm not particularly proud of this one... but, yeah. Listen if you want.

Couldn't agree more Erik. Music Oscars given out these days mean nothing and severely diminish the awards given in years past to those that deserved them.

TWO NEW SHOWS

PATREON PLAYLIST SHOW #4 – PROGRAMMED BY VICTOR FIELD
http://www.cinematicsound.net/the-flag-ship-show-patreon-playlist-show-4-programmed-by-victor-field/

Today you get to enjoy the fourth show programmed by one of our patrons from the CONDUCTOR TIER over at our Patreon page. In this tier, donors earn the opportunity to program their very own personal one-hour(ish) show once a year. Victor Field, a long-time fan of the show, took advantage of this opportunity and this is the show that he put together for us to enjoy!

So, how did Victor get into soundtrack collecting? This is what he had to say…

"I was born in England but my dad moved us to his home country of Barbados in 1976. I spent my childhood and teen years there before coming back to England to live in 1993. One of first album purchases was TVT’s double album “Television’s Greatest Hits”. I think it was I didn’t want to be listening to what everyone else around me was, I’m still kicking myself that I was so late to discover taping from the TV. I once asked my dad why we never went to see “Star Wars” (I refuse to call it “Star Wars: A New Hope”) in the cinema? He said I never asked! Although I did go to see “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return Of The Jedi”. I haven’t seen any of the Special Editions.

As with all of the Patreon Playlist shows, this one is a varied and eclectic program featuring music from various eras of film and TV. You’ll hear selections from Basil Poledouris, Alfred Newman, Jerry Goldsmith, Dave Grusin, Barry Grey, Derek Wadsworth, Danny Elfman, Craig Safan, Bruce Broughton, Alan Silvestri, James Newton Howard, John Williams, and Brad Fiedel.

Enjoy the podcast, and thanks for all of your efforts in curating this playlist, Victor!

FILMIC WITH LEY BRICKNELL - EPISODE 13
http://www.cinematicsound.net/filmic-with-ley-bricknell-episode-13/

In this thirtieth FILMIC episode on THE CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO PODCAST, Ley Bricknell will play music from some late 2022 releases with a splash of oldies along with some weird and wonderful tracks! You’ll hear selections from WOMEN TALKING (Guðnadóttir), GLASS ONION (Johnson), EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE (Son Lux), BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID (Bacharach), THE WOMEN KING (Blanchard), CUTTHROAT ISLAND (Debney) and more.

http://www.cinematicsound.net/filmic-with-ley-bricknell-episode-13/

Enjoy!

You’ll hear selections from Basil Poledouris, Alfred Newman, Jerry Goldsmith, Dave Grusin, Barry Grey, Derek Wadsworth, Lalo Schifrin, Danny Elfman, Craig Safan, Bruce Broughton, Alan Silvestri, James Newton Howard, John Williams, and Brad Fiedel.

Victor's Newman pick is perfect. As rough as the original recordings are, All About Eve's music still, quickly made its way onto the top shelf of the back of my mind playlist.

Nice, odd pick for Lalo, too.

Listened to both the Chris Young interviews today during a road trip! They're GREAT -- I always love hearing from him, the score cuts put a huge ole smile on my face, and these two episodes were a BLAST. I've been a big fan of his for a long time, and often forget how all-encompassing his career has been thus far.

THE ESSENTIAL SOUNDTRACKS – STAR TREK: GENERATIONS
http://www.cinematicsound.net/the-essential-soundtracks-star-trek-generations/

Today on THE ESSENTIAL SOUNDTRACKS, Erik Woods, Robert Daniels, and Randy Andrews continue their journey through the STAR TREK films and their soundtracks as they discuss the seventh movie in the series, STAR TREK: GENERATIONS. You’ll hear them discuss the film in great detail including such topics as the new uniforms, deleted scenes, Kirk’s death, the destruction of The Enterprise D and more. Also covered in great length is Dennis McCarthy’s underappreciated score.

WARNING: We do talk about Star Trek: Picard Season 3 in this episode so if you haven’t seen the new series yet, you’ve been warned; there are SPOILERS in this episode.

STAR TREK: GENERATIONS was released on November 18, 1994. Malcolm McDowell joined cast members from the 1960s television show STAR TREK and the 1987 sequel series STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. In the film, Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) of the USS Enterprise-D joins forces with Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) to stop the villain Tolian Soran (Malcolm McDowell) from destroying a planetary system in his attempt to return to an extra-dimensional realm known as the Nexus. The film was directed by TV veteran David Carson.

The original soundtrack album was released at the time of the film’s release on GNP Crescendo Records. It had a generous amount of music on the album, close to 45 minutes worth with 16 minutes of Star Trek sound effects from the film. In November of 2012, GNP Crescendo released an expanded version of the score featuring two full CDs of music expanding the run time to OVER two hours. The score was recorded by Robert Fernandez at Paramount Pictures Scoring Stage M, and McCarthy conducted the Hollywood Studio Orchestra. Mark McKenzie, William Ross, and Brad Warnaar provided orchestrations. The Executive Album Reissue Producer was Dennis McCarthy. The Executive Album Producers for GNP/Crescendo Records were Neil Norman and Melanie Clarkson. The Album Reissue Producers were Ford A. Thaxton, James Nelson and Mark Banning. The Project Consultant was Lukas Kendall, with liner notes by liner notes by Jeff Bond and Lukas Kendall.

The GNP Crescendo album is currently out of stock!

The last 48 hours have been absolutely insane. More on that in a bit.

BUTE ISLAND RADIO PREMIERE EPISODE - SPY FILMS
http://www.cinematicsound.net/bute-island-radio-preimere-episode-spy-films/

Before I left Bute Island Radio, I produced two complete episodes with one other episode left in the planning stages. One episode made it to air, the others did not. This was the episode that made it to air. This was the premiere episode of CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO for Bute Island Radio.

If you are unaware of what transpired with Bute Island Radio, I suggest you read my announcement post here > http://www.cinematicsound.net/bute-island-radio-announcement/

And then read my resignation post here > http://www.cinematicsound.net/it-ended-before-it-really-got-started/

For my first episode on Bute Island Radio, I thought I’d take advantage of the popularity of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE and the recent release of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – DEAD RECKONING PART ONE. On the program I played selections from MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE (Elfman), MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – DEAD RECKONING PART ONE (Balfe), MUNICH (Williams), NOTORIOUS (Webb), THE IPCRESS FILE (Barry), THE TAILOR OF PANAMA (Davey) and THE RUSSIA HOUSE (Goldsmith).

This was the most fun I’ve had producing a program since my John Williams tribute a few years ago! I hope you enjoy the commentary and the selections.

Enjoy!
