"Sesso" on Italian CDs.

On many Japanese film music releases (when translated to English):

Title Background

NOTE: "Title Background" is usually translated as "Title Back". However, "Back" is short for "Background" in this case.

I think about six of Williams' soundtrack albums have a cue named "Reflections," including his new score for "The Fabelmans."

Nocturne.

I have 13 by Herrmann alone...


Yes, "nocturne" is somewhat like "prelude" or "adagio" or "entr'acte" or "serenade"... it's a common term (not limited to film music) to describe a particular type of music piece. All of these occur outside of film music as well.

Herrmann usually titled his cues very matter of fact and used almost exclusively nouns for the names of his cues:
"The Car", "The Telephone", "The Nightmare", "Prelude", "Walz", "Nocturne", "Finale" etc.

Referring back to Tobias' Jerry Goldsmith double CD-Rs filled with tracks beginning with "No...", I wonder how many CD-Rs could be made using JG's prediliction for tracks beginning "First..." and "A New....".

Get to work on that, Tobias, and report back presently.

And presumably a piece of music that plays well during nighttime.

Yes, that is the meaning of the term. It's a piece of music inspired by or evocative of or suited for nighttime. Chopin wrote a whole bunch of them.

Indeed. For me, though, ALL music plays better during nighttime. So -- by extension -- ALL music is nocturne. big grin

Whatever happened to "End Cast?"

Whatever happened to "End Cast?"


It's definitely fallen out of favor, since the end credits these days are so much more than the cast. "End Cast" is much more associated with films from the 1940s through the 1960s.

The last composers to use it may have been:

  • Chuck Cirino for 1994's GHOULIES IV and 1990's HARD TO DIE
  • Georges Delerue in 1988's MEMORIES OF ME and 1981's RICH AND FAMOUS
  • John Morgan for 1982's THE AFTERMATH
  • Lalo Schifrin for 1978's NUNZIO
  • John Williams' JAWS 2 (1978)
  • John Williams' FAMILY PLOT (1976)
  • John Addison's SWASHBUCKLER (1976)
  • Alex North's RICH MAN, POOR MAN (1976)
  • Michel Legrand's GABLE AND LOMBARD (1976)

    If Williams and Goldsmith had ever collaborated on a score together, there would have been a track named "No Reflections."

    A vampire movie, perhaps?

    I don't like when a track title is repeated (we know the reasons, expecially in Italian scores) and you find
    "sequence" or "Seq." or "#" plus a number which, quite often, is NOT matching to the track number.

    If a sequence is better than others how do you recall it.

    A word that used to be very often used in film music here, but now seems extinct.... "Klew".
