    Episode 426: Sam Taylor-Johnson, Giles Martin & Iain Cooke On Back To Black

    A couple of weeks after we.brought you Dev Patel and Jordan Peele talking Monkey Man, we're delighted to say we have another live Soundtracking Everyman Film Club for you. Today it's the turn of director Sam Taylor Johnson, producer Giles Martin and Music Supervisor Iain Cooke to discuss Sam's Amy Winehouse biopic, Back To Black. Starring Marissa Abela in the lead role, it predominantly charts the influence of Amy's family, her early years in the music industry and her troubled relationship with Blake Fielder Civil, encompassing her triumph at the 2008 Grammys, at which she won 5 awards including Best Album. Sam, Giles and Ian joined Edith in front of an audience at The Screen On The Green in Islington, north London.

    Episode 425: Alex Garland On The Music Of Civil War

    Episode 424: Dev Patel & Jordan Peele Talk Monkey Man Live At Everyman Screen On The Green

    Episode 424: Dev Patel & Jordan Peele Talk Monkey Man Live At Everyman Screen On The Green

    Our latest guests are Dev Patel and Jordan Peele, who joined Edith for the first Soundtracking Everyman Film Club of 2024 to discuss Dev's debut feature, Monkey Man, recorded live at Screen On The Green in north London. As well as writing and producing the film (with a little help from Jordan), Dev also directed - on what was, as you'll hear, an extremely challenging shoot. Monkey Man is ostensibly a revenge thriller, drawing from the rich tradition of classic kung-fu movies. But peel back the layers and you'll find so much more - not least razorsharp socio-political commentary.

    Episode 423: Neo Sora On The Music Of Opus & His Dad Ryuichi Sakamoto

    Episode 423: Neo Sora On The Music Of Opus & His Dad Ryuichi Sakamoto

    Our latest guest on Soundtracking is Neo Sora, son of Ryuichi Sakamoto and director of a final gift to the Japanese composer's fans, Opus. Recorded in late 2022, with just Ryuichi and a Yamaha grand, Opus sees him perform his most haunting, and delicate melodies in equally haunting and delicate black and white. It is a wonderfully tender, meditative and moving film, which we recommend you all to go and see.

    Episode 422: Issa Lopez On The Music Of True Detective: Night Country

    Our latest guest on Soundtracking is Issa Lopez, creator, writer and director of True Detective: Night Country, which is available to watch in its entirety on Sky and Now TV - in the UK at any rate. Starring Jodie Foster & Kali Reis, it's set in a remote Alaskan town during a winter spell of perpetual darkness, and follows an investigation into the mysterious disappearance of eight men at a research station. The visuals are stunning ... the performances are stunning ... the music is stunning. As well as boasting a suitably chilling score by Vince Pope, it also features a range of incredible needle drops and a title track by none other than Billie Elish.

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! 💚

Favourite podcast

I don’t know anyone who’s ‘in to’ film & tv music, so I’m so happy I’ve found a podcast! Even more happy Edith’s presenting (what a lovely person) and very impressed with the execution - well done, please never stop!
