    Episode 307: Actor Jack Lowden On His Relationship With Music

    Episode 307: Actor Jack Lowden On His Relationship With Music

    We have an actor for you this week, who we think is about to go stratospheric. Jack Lowden should be the next James Bond, in Edith's opinion, but in the meantime you can watch him in Dunkirk, England Is Mine, Fighting With My Family, Slow Horses, and, as of this week, Benediction. 

    He loves his music and also spins a great yarn - all of which makes for a very entertaining listen.

    Episode 306: Lucy Bright, Matthew Herbert and Roland Joffé On Ennio Morricone

    Something slightly different for you this week, as we reflect on a new documentary about the life of Ennio Morricone in the company of three admirers.




    The film is called Ennio, and features contributions from the man himself and the likes of Quentin Tarantino, John Williams, Clint Eastwood and Hans Zimmer, as well as one of of my guests today - director of The Mission, Roland Joffé




    Alongside Roland are composer, Matthew Herbert, and music supervisor, Lucy Bright, in what's a really fascinating discussion

    Episode 305: Mark Mothersbaugh Discusses His Career

    Our latest guest on soundtracking is a musician, artist, cultural icon and film, TV and video game composer - who's been plying his trade for 50-odd years.

    Among Mark Mothersbaugh's many credits are Rugrats, Thor Ragnarok, Lego movies and several Wes Anderson films - though you'd be reading this for about half an hour if we were to list every single one of the projects he's been involved with. 



    Rest assure, we cover as much ground as we can!

    Episode 304: Robert Eggers On The Music Of The Northman

    Our latest guest on Soundtracking is a writer / director who made an extremely promising start to his career with acclaimed horrors The Witch and The Lighthouse - both of which Edith loves.



    Robert Eggers has followed these up with The Northman, a visceral Viking epic based on the Scandinavian legend of Amleth. The film is scored by Robin Carolan and Sebastian Gainsborough, and you'll hear plenty of their work and more music sprinkled throughout the conversation.

    Episode 303: David Newman Talks West Side Story

    Episode 303: David Newman Talks West Side Story

    Our latest guest on Soundtracking is a man whose father, Alfred, blazed a trail for film scoring in Hollywood, while his brother, Thomas, has been nominated for 15 Oscars. Oh yes, and his cousin happens to be called Randy, which, when your surname is Newman, means you come from quite the musical dynasty ...




    David Newman is also a hugely respected composer, who joined Edith to discuss his work as an adapter and arranger on Steven Spielberg's glorious remake of West Side Story.

I adore this podcast (however….)

This podcast has fast become one of my absolute favourites and go-tos! It’s the only film score podcast I listen to and I’m a HUGE film music nerd! Stunning work by Edith.
The only, only reason there is a star missing is I feel the use of musical excerpts are a bit heavy handed - they are very frequent and long. For me they break up the flow of the conversation which is why I love podcasts. It’s lovely to have them, but in my opinion they dominate the podcast a little more than they should - just my 2 cents! 💚

I recently discovered this podcast and really enjoy it. I find Edith really knowledgable but also humble, she allows the people she is interviewing time to talk and they seem to really open up. It’s not a subject I knew much about when I started listening and had not really thought much about the music in films, but it is fascinating. Thank you Edith!
