    Interview with Penka Kouneva

    Interview with Penka Kouneva

    Welcome to the latest in the continuing series of film, TV and video game composer interviews on the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO NETWORK.


    Penka Kouneva arrived in Hollywood in the year 2000 with dreams of working as a composer in the film industry, but with no money or connections. The classically trained musician was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and came to the U.S. in 1990 to study music at Duke University, where she achieved a PhD in composition. Since arriving in Los Angeles 20 years ago, Penka has been led by determination and has managed to work as an accomplished orchestrator and composer for videos games (LEAGUE OF LEGENDS, PRINCE OF PERSIA, and THE MUMMY) and feature films (Oscar contender AGA, Sony Pictures’ ENCOUNTER and DEVIL'S WHISPER).


    In 2019, Penka scored The CW Network’s sci-fi drama PANDORA from creator Mark A. Altman—her first network television series in collaboration with Joe Kraemer. PANDORA is set in the year 2199, where a young woman named Jax who has lost everything, finds a new life at Earth's Space Training Academy where she learns to defend the galaxy from intergalactic threats. The co-composers created a futuristic-sounding orchestral-hybrid score and utilized their individual strengths, but ultimately created something coherent and stylistically holistic.


    The composer had a fascination with the sci-fi genre at an early age, given that her father was a scientist. And because she grew up in Bulgaria (a former communist country), she was intrigued by planes and rockets because they symbolized freedom to her. Much like the main character in PANDORA, Penka forged her own path undaunted by challenges—all she had were big dreams and ambition.


    In June 2020, for the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO NETWORK, Jason Drury spoke to Penka Kouneva via Zoom at her home in Los Angeles. During the show, they will talk about PANDORA, how Penka came to Hollywood under the wing of composer Patrick Williams and her work as an orchestrator and composer.


    Also, during the show, you will be hearing more music from PANDORA and other projects featuring the music of Penka Kourneva.


    Enjoy!

    Soundtrack Alley: Premiere Episode - Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    Soundtrack Alley: Premiere Episode - Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    Welcome to the premiere episode of SOUNDTRACK ALLEY here on CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO.


    SOUNDTRACK ALLEY is a podcast hosted and produced by Randy Andrews who is also the host and producer of ANIME SPECTACULAR here on the network. SOUNDTRACK ALLEY has been around for many years and I’ve been honoured to be a guest on his show many times to discuss numerous topics like STAR TREK, INDIANA JONES, and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND.


    The show is a discussion formatted program where Randy invites a special guest to talk about one of his favourite films and film scores. The discussion usually ranges from 90 minutes to 2 hours in length with in-depth discussions of the film and music. Randy has produced close to 100 episodes of the show which also included various composer interviews.


    A few days ago, Randy came to me and told me that he was thinking of moving SOUNDTRACK ALLEY to CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO. We had a lengthy discussion to make sure this is what he wanted and after going over the details we agreed to bring all-new episodes of the podcast over the network. However, the entire archive of previous SOUNDTRACK ALLEY episodes will stay on the original server as an archive. We did this so fans of the show could still access the older programs without having to bring them all onto the CSR servers.


    The first episode to premiere here on CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO is a discussion between myself and Randy Andrews about the film and score to INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL released in 2008. The film was the fourth instalment in the Indiana Jones series set in 1957, pitting Indiana Jones against Soviet agents – led by Irina Spalko – searching for a telepathic crystal skull. The original score for the film was composed and conducted by John Williams and performed by The Hollywood Symphony Orchestra.


    We hope you enjoy the discussion, the music and all future episodes of SOUNDTRACK ALLEY. Enjoy!


    And now, here is Randy Andrews statement on SOUNDTRACK ALLEY joining CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO.


    ——


    Hi, I’m Randy Andrews, you might know me from ANIME SPECTACULAR. I wanted to give you a very brief history of SOUNDTRACK ALLEY.


    I was always impressed by podcasting, and I’ve always had a love of film music. About 6 years ago, I began listening to a local podcast that encouraged its listeners to call in or send an mp3 for a recorded answer. I did so many times. Soon, my comments became more and more intriguing for the host. They encouraged me to start my own podcast about soundtracks.


    About a half year later, I did my research and bought a podcast microphone and started recording shows, not really knowing what I was doing. By my 11th episode, I was interviewing big-name composers like Craig Safan from THE LAST STARFIGHTER. Then I discovered CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO while at work and it changed my life!


    I got in touch with Erik Woods and asked him if he would like to be on my our program to discuss CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND.. He accepted and from there, he introduced me to the Krakower Group headed up by the late Beth Krakower and they helped me to interview more composers like Blake Neely, Elik Elverez, and Rolf Kent jus to mention a few. I also took the initiative to reach out to composers on my own such as Lesley Barber, Sharon Farber, Bruce Rowland, and Rob Cairns.


    Over the years, SOUNDTRACK ALLEY has gone through a couple of iterations and transitions due do unforeseen circumstances and the latest version of the podcast unfortunately hasn’t been doing as well as I hoped. I needed another change. This is where Erik Woods and CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO comes into play.


    I’ve always wanted to share my love of films and film music with as many people as possible and this transition over to CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO gives me that opportunity. CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO is one of the best venue’s for film,

Mr Safety ,

Really great podcast

For me, music is my favorite part of most movies and the thing I remember long after I have seen the film. Cinematic Sound Radio brings some of the BEST music from TV, cinema, and video games directly to you every week in a high quality audio podcast. I really have no reason not to recommend this podcast to music lovers of all stripes; particularly those of us who often enjoy the music as much, if not more than, the movies that feature them. 5/5

My favourite show bar none

This is my favourite podcast in a long list of subscriptions and by a fair margin. Erik’s insights and selections are brilliant.

I just listened to your heart to heart episode, Erik, and I felt really convicted about the fact that I hadn’t reviewed the show yet. Your work on this show means a great deal to me and it’s played a big part in lifting me out of some dark places. I want you to know that whatever the future holds for CSR, that this show and your work on it holds a really special place in my heart.

Thank you

If you love Movie scores this is the podcast for you!

I've loved and listened to movie scores for years and Cinematic Sound Radio does and excellent job of revisting classic scores and introducing the listener to new score discoveries. Covers all new releases as well as excellent dedicated shows to composers such as John Williams and James Horner.
