Summary: SoundtrackNet brings you a podcast about film and television music with soundtrack reviews, soundbites, and more! SoundtrackNet is the source for information on composers, soundtracks, recording companies, retailers, manufacturers, agents and performing right organizations.
In our longest podcast to date, SoundtrackNet talks with Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer to discuss his latest soundtrack, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END. He talks about the new themes, the evolution of the PIRATES scores, and even gives us a little insight into his approach for THE SIMPSONS MOVIE!
In this podcast we apologize for our absence, but with some good explanations! We also talk about some upcoming features for the site, as well as feature some new David Arnold music, so come take a listen - it's short, and won't take up too much of your time.
In this exclusive podcast, we talk with all of the Oscar nominees for Best Score (and a few from Best Song) at the Society of Composers and Lyricsts annual Oscar reception. Hear from GUSTAVO SANTAOLALLA, JAVIER NAVARRETE, ALEXANDRE DESPLAT, PHILIP GLASS, THOMAS NEWMAN, RANDY NEWMAN, HENRY KREIGER and more!
A few website updates, including scoring session coverage and Tyler Bates' score to 300. We also dig into the Academy Award Nominations for Best Original Score and Best Original Song.
Desplat wins the Golden Globe, and we dig into SoundtrackNet's Best of 2006 with our look at the Top 10 Soundtracks (plus three Honorable Mentions).
We acknowledge Shirley Walker's passing, and take a look at the Best Score nominees from the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Hollywood Foreign Press (Golden Globes). Will BABEL win? Or will it be THE DA VINCI CODE? Or maybe something out of left field, like NOMAD?
Famed composer Basil Poledouris has passed away of cancer at the age of 61. In this podcast, I reflect on Basil, his work, and my friendship with him.
In our latest podcast, composer Danny Elfman talks about his concert work, SERENADA SCHIZOPHRANA (releasing on Oct 3, 2006 from Sony Classical). He discusses the origins of the compositions, how to find inspiration, adapting it for DEEP SEA 3D IMAX, as well as his latest concert work, THE OVEREAGER OVERTURE.
In this podcast, we recognize SIR MALCOLM ARNOLD who passed away this past weekend, and showcase the Film Music Radio interview with JAMES HORNER - who has some blunt things to say about GABRIEL YARED, WOLFGANG PETERSEN and TERRENCE MALICK. We also give you a little bit of our HANS ZIMMER interview, so check it out!
