Score lovers’ delight!
If you’re really into film / tv / gaming scores, then this podcast is a marvellous listen.
After being seduced into a love of film scores in my childhood by Williams, Goldsmith, Herrmann and Horner, it was difficult to find like minded souls... until the internet came along.
But the internet is 20 years old now, and the best shows have shown their staying power; this is one of those shows.
The enthusiasm of the hosts is obvious. And while I don’t always agree with their opinions (and everyone’s tastes will vary), their insights are always welcome, and in many cases have inspired me to seek out or re-examine a piece of music; often to be surprised or reinvigorated by some sonic treasure that I missed completely, or misjudged.
If you love scores, then you’ll enjoy this podcast. Bravo!
I've tried hard to enjoy this podcast - I really have! I can hear the presenters discuss film music with passion and obviously they have invested a significant amount of time in coming to know this music, but the insights concerning the music are few and far between. Too often the episodes discuss which tracks are 'awesome' and which are not - I'd like to hear about how the composers construct the music, develop themes, communicate the subtext of the film and use the forces at their disposal. Entertaining in parts, but mostly a frustrating experience!
This is the defnitive podcast for soundtrack fans. Great hosts, great discussions, great arguments, great interviews.
