It Takes a Village - Part One

Film music is all about relationships. There are the relationships between the composer and the producers, the composer and the director, the composer and the scoring team. Relationships exist between the performing musicians, their sections and their ensemble. The music itself relates to the film's dialogue, sound effects and mix; to an internal sen

FSM Forum: Issue Two

Film music is all about relationships. There are the relationships between the composer and the producers, the composer and the director, the composer and the scoring team. Relationships exist between the performing musicians, their sections and their ensemble. The music itself relates to the film's dialogue, sound effects and mix; to an internal sense of musical cohesion and structure; and to the drama. And yet, the

The Use of John Williams' music in Attack of the Clones

By Jon & Al Kaplan

Unbreakable CD Review

by Jonathan Kaplan


Unbreakable **** 1/2

JAMES NEWTON HOWARD

Hollywood HR-62290-2
