36 Magnificent Movie Music Moments
You know the scene in Dreamcatcher where that razor-toothed, slithering phallus bites off Jason Lee's fingers to James Newton Howard's pounding scary music? Relax, that didn't make the list. But a lot of truly great marriages of film and music did. Have a look. By Jon & Al Kaplan, et. al.
Battle Plans
John Frizzell and Randy Edelman talk about their collaborative efforts in scoring the epic Civil War production of Gods and Generals, the prequel to Gettysburg. By Daniel Schweiger
Take the Red Pill
It's all things Matrix for Don Davis lately, as he focuses his talents on two gigantic theatrical productions and nine Internet mini-features. All this and he still has time to explain post-modernism. By Jeff Bond
Arrakis Attack
Whether writing ethnic textures for the Sci-Fi Channel's Children of Dune, action music for The Hunted, or cues for the Tooth Fairy in Darkness Falls, one thing's for sure: Brian Tyler is working a lot. By Jeff Bond
Saving the Enterprise
Brian Tyler sidebar. By Jeff Bond
Call Forth the Mutants
Directing Urban Legends 2 kept him from being able to compose the score for X-Men. This time around, John Ottman is keeping his schedule open for Bryan Singer's sequel. By Jeff Bond
