Welcome to "comPOSERS The Movie Score Podcast", where three old musician friends of dubious talent enjoy some movie-themed drinks while discussing film scores and the films they're in. Our goal is to find the perfect movie score, and our journey takes us some really weird places.
Join us on this bizarre musical trek to...somewhere? Follow us on the socials @composerspod, then sit back, pour yourself an adult beverage and enjoy some comPOSING.
NEW EPISODES EVERY SUNDAY!
Up (2009) - Series 12: Episode 179
In our last pre-holiday-movie season episode, Aaron invites us to cry forever and ever and Jay questions why we're suddenly so sentimental. Come for the sad old man movie, stay for the weirdly extended conversation about FIFA and human rights violations (it's comPOSERS; what do you really expect from us?) It's Pixar's Up, featuring one of the best scores composed by the man who would be Williams, Michael Giacchino!
DUCKTALES: THE MOVIE: TREASURE OF THE LOST LAMP (1990) - Series 12: Episode 178
Life is like a hurricane and the last two weeks have been a duck-blur, but the comPOSERS are back with a movie none of us are completely sure we picked. Join the boys as we take a gander at 1990s DuckTales: The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, with music by David Newman!
INFERNO (1980) - Series 12: Episode 177
On our final DEcomPOSERS episode of the year, we really burn shit down. This pick comes courtesy of our Halloween Santa Claus Andy Sell of the Ghoul School Podcast, who visits us around this time every year to lend credibility to our show. Tonight he joins us to talk 1980s followup to Suspiria: Inferno, with music by...Keith Emerson? That Keith Emerson? Oh Dario Argento, never change.
IT FOLLOWS (2014) - Series 12: Episode 176
What's that behind you? Why it's a supernatural sex pest of course! This week, Aaron's pick for DEcomPOSERS month takes us back to 2014 (sort of) where we read Dostoyevsky and use the word "bang" far more often than any of us is comfortable with. It's the indie horror with a message, if only we could determine what that is: It Follows, with music by Disasterpeace!
BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935) - Series 12: Episode 175
DEcomPOSERS month continues with a trip back to the dawn of horror films and one of the first to feature a score! This is a Krueger pick, and since he got married yesterday, we're covering James Whale's "Bride of Frankenstein", with music by Franz "Franky the Wax" Waxman!
RAVENOUS (1999) - Series 12: Episode 174
Stew's on! This week, Jay's DEcomPOSERS pick takes us into the Sierra Nevada for culinary lessons with Robert Carlyle and Guy Pearce. It's 1999's Ravenous, with music by Michael Nyman and Damon Albarn!
Hilarious, informative and sometimes baffling
A "drinking podcast discussing movie scores" - this beauty is hosted by three of the most nauseatingly nice white dudes and looks at the scores of the big screen. One can't speak, one can't be serious about anything and then there's Alex. They can be overly critical for three nerds in a basement and hiding from their spouses (now in insolation starring at a screen) but they're HUGELY entertaining, funny, and very engaging. It's like being from a small town and going home for the Thanksgiving and sitting around a table listing to a bunch of drunk a**holes try to sound intelligent at 2am. Except it's on the internet. HIGHLY recommend.
I take back the slanderous comments I made when this show first started. Alex has learned a lot and he makes the show better. 10/10
Fun and informative
The hosts of this podcast are self proclaimed posers but I think their collective knowledge of composers, instruments and music composition give a cool new perspective on some of my favourite movies.
