To Rock or Not to Rock?
Like it or hate it, the rock score is here to stay. And nowhere is that fact more apparent than in the season's first blockbuster, The Scorpion King, starring The Rock. Nevertheless, composer John Debney has done his best to incorporate authentic orchestral elements into his score as well.
Dialect of Desire
The most famous voice in Italian film music -- most notably employed by Ennio Morricone -- Edda Dell'Orso has made a career out of her sultry, organic sounds. Here she talks about working with the Maestro, singing to picture, and life before The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
The Man Who Can-Can-Can
Even with the recent successes of Moulin Rouge! and a new album out in stores, Craig Armstrong found time to sit down with FSM and talk about more upcoming projects, the power of collaboration, and finding his muse.
An Awfully Big Adventure
It's the 11th anniversary of Hook! Okay, that may not excite you, but it seemed as good a time as any to reveal an in-depth analysis of one of John Williams' most under-appreciated and thematically dense scores.
