    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,

    Interview with Brad Fiedel

    Interview with Brad Fiedel

    Welcome to a Cinematic Sound Radio Network Interview Special featuring film composer, musician and writer Brad Fiedel.


    Raised in Bayville, New York on Long Island on March 10, 1951, Fiedel graduated from The Barlow School. After college, he became a popular and progressive composer, and in the 1980s, he worked on several successful movies, predominantly in the action and thriller genres, and pioneered the use of electronic instruments and synthesizers—almost disappearing from the mainstream at the end of the 1990s. He was the keyboardist for Hall and Oates.


    He began his career in film in the late 1970s, and wrote extensively for television films and minor cinema releases, until director James Cameron hired him to score the science fiction film The Terminator in 1984, setting the wheels in motion for a successful career.


    Since then, Fiedel has scored many popular and successful movies, including FRIGHT NIGHT (1985) and its sequel FRIGHT NIGHT PART 2 (1988), THE BIG EASY (1987), THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW (1988), THE ACCUSED (1988), BLUE STEEL (1990), TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY (1991), BLINK (1994), and TRUE LIES (1994).


    His last major theatrical score was in 1995, and although he enjoyed a brief period of renewed interest following the release of TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES in 2003, when Marco Beltrami wrote an orchestral arrangement of his TERMINATOR theme, Fiedel shows no sign of returning to the film music field.


    In recent years, Fiedel moved on to other creative areas, which has included writing original musicals. His latest is FULL CIRCLE. Based loosely on events from Fiedel’s grandfather’s life. The story centres on Sarah, a teenager who is stuck in her New York City Apartment. She is so sensitive and empathetic that she is no longer able to tolerate going out in public. She absorbs the feelings and thoughts of others so deeply that she loses control of her body movements, causing intolerable pain and embarrassment. The appearance of her mysterious estranged grandfather creates a possibility for them to work together trying to solve a mystery that has haunted the family for years and is the cause of much suffering. Working alone in his home studio, Fiedel was able to assemble various recordings he had of the songs, scenes and narration to create a complete audio experience of the show


    When plans for this spring fell apart including a trip to London for the premiere of his iconic Terminator score to be played live at the Royal Albert Hall, Brad Fiedel had a lot of time on his hands. “ Stuck at home, I decided to take the opportunity to complete this musical that had been needing my attention for a long time. It’s a project that’s very close to my heart and imagining people at home experiencing it really made the whole process feel worthwhile.”


    FULL CIRCLE, the two-act musical was released on all digital platforms on June 24th.


    In June 2020, for the Cinematic Sound Radio Network, Jason Drury talked to Brad Fiedel, via Zoom at his home in Santa Barbara, California.


    During the interview, we talked extensively about FULL CIRCLE as well as his film music career, his work on the TERMINATOR movies, working with James Cameron and why he decided to retire from film and TV music.


    Also during the show, we will hear songs from FULL CIRCLE, as well as music from the film scores of Brad Fiedel, in particular, from his 2 iconic scores, THE TERMINATOR and TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY.


    Enjoy!

    The Flagship Show: James Horner End Credit Suites

    The Flagship Show: James Horner End Credit Suites

    In today’s program, we’ll be paying tribute once again to two-time Academy Award-winning composer James Horner. It has been five years since his tragic death and CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO once again is paying tribute to the composer by playing more of his music.


    Back in the 1970s, James Horner dreamt of a career as a concert composer, but it was film scoring that was to be his true calling, and it would take him 30 years to finally return to the concert hall with Pas De Deux. One can argue that Horner was always writing concert works as he broke convention by producing extended cues that retained the long-form structures observed in classical music. End Credits similarly offered Horner the opportunity to write pure music which could be enjoyed without visuals; stand-alone compositions that developed the thematic and motivic material introduced in the score, but free of any narrative, dramatic tone or tempo obligations from their cinematic counterpart.


    On today’s program we will be playing end credit cues composed by James Horner from such films as A BEAUTIFUL MIND, CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER, GLORY, WHERE THE RIVER RUNS BLACK, RANSOM, ONCE UPON A FOREST, LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES and many more.


    Enjoy!

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.
