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!
THE APARTMENT (1960) - Series 15: Episode 215
Don't forget to lock up when you're done screwing around on your wife! This week the boys are in the Stude and joined by the Fifth Beatle, Andrew Young of the Geek Hard show, who's brought a delight from yesteryear: 1960's The Apartment, with music by British composer (we're serious) Adolph Deutsch!
QUEST FOR FIRE (1981) - Series 15: Episode 214
Whether themed months remain a thing on this podcast remains to be seen, but for now let's pretend it's No Nonsense November, a month about serious movies. And we begin with a seriously-good movie that also happens to star Ron Perlman as a caveman. Check out Quest for Fire (1981), with it's seriously-good score by Phillipe Sarde!
comPUTERS: The Video Game Podcast — Halloween Edition!
Something dorky this way comes as Jay and Krueger embark on a rare Aaron-free special: a spiritual sequel to our horror game soundtrack special. Join the Statler and Waldorf of film composition podcasts for a frighteningly civil conversation about their favourite spook-adjacent video games. Bleep! Bloop! BOO!
MOTHER OF TEARS (2007) - Series 14: Episode 213
It's the final movie installment of this year's DEcomPOSERS, and that can mean only one thing: the return of horror movie expert (and host of the Ghoul School podcast) Andy Sell! This year, Andy helps us break the curse of Dario Argento's Three Mothers trilogy (and the curse of podcasting technical difficulties) with 2007's Mother of Tears and its music by Claudio Simonetti!
NOTE: We don't have a regular episode planned for the Sunday before Halloween since Aaron is on vacation, but check this space that day anyway. You know, just in case. BOO.
RE-ANIMATOR (1985) - Series 14: Episode 212
DEcomPOSERS gets schlocky this week as Jay/Aaron bring us the cult hit Re-Animator, with music by Richard Band (very special thanks to Bernard Hermann too).
DEEP RISING (1998) - Series 14: Episode 211
Another year, another comPOSERS reminder to stay out of the ocean. DEcomPOSERS month continues with 1998's Deep Rising, with music by "King" Jerry Goldsmith!
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.
