    Episode 181: Johnny Flynn On The Music Of Emma

    Episode 181: Johnny Flynn On The Music Of Emma

    Our latest guest on Soundtracking is a supremely versatile actor and musician, who has released several albums and taken numerous critically acclaimed roles on stage and screen.
    Johnny Flynn can currently be seen in Autumn De Wilde's adaptation of Emma, which stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Nighy and Josh O'Connor. Like Johnny, Autumn has strong connections to the music industry, having worked with the likes of Elliot Smith and Death Cab For Cutie in her guise as photographer and video director. 
    The pair bonded over a love of folk, which is one of the reasons she asked him to write a song for the film.

    Episode 180: Soundtracking LIVE at the BFI With Tim Burton

    Episode 180: Soundtracking LIVE at the BFI With Tim Burton

    We're bringing you another Soundtracking Live this week, recorded at London's BFI shortly before Christmas with the one and only Tim Burton. 
    We had an absolutely cracking night in front of a full house, chatting about his longtime partnership with Danny Elfman and playing clips from Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorands, Batman Returns, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
    As such, you'll need to use your imagination a wee bit in this episode - but the scenes we went for are so memorable and iconic, it shouldn't prove too problematic. 
    Besides, they are of course all beautifully scored - so if nothing else you can enjoy Danny's work.

    Episode 179: Marielle Heller On The Music Of A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

    Episode 179: Marielle Heller On The Music Of A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

    Edith's guest on this week's Soundtracking is a writer, actor and director behind a trio of films we hugely admire.
    Marielle Heller first came to our attention with her razopr-sharp comedy-drama, Diary Of A Teenage Girl. She followed that up with Can You Ever Forgive Me?, which won a slew of awards and saw Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant nominated for Oscars.
    Now Marielle brings us A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood, a drama inspired by Fred Rogers, a beloved American children's entertainer, musician & puppeteer - played in the film by Tom Hanks.
    Fred is most famous for the show Mister Rogers' Neighborhood - so it seemed only fitting, given that we're a film music podcast, that we began with Mr Hanks's version of Mr Rogers' theme ...

    Episode 178: Kevin Smith On The Music of Jay, Silent Bob and Pretty Much Everything ...

    Episode 178: Kevin Smith On The Music of Jay, Silent Bob and Pretty Much Everything ...

    Our latest guest on Soundtracking could not be more suited to a podcast about film music, what with him being so knowledgable and passionate about both artistic forms.
    Kevin Smith burst onto the indie scene with his 1994 lo-fi slacker classic Clerks, which he shot for around $28,000 only to see it receive widespread critical acclaim and gross $3 million. It also introduced the world to Jay and Silent Bob, who have featured in many of his subsequent movies - getting their latest outing in Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. It's riotous good fun, whether you're familiar with their history or not.
    A prolific podcaster himself, Kevin is bloody cracking company, with stories to tell about the music in pretty much all of his work, including a corker about Fleetwood Mac. 
    One of our faves, ever!

    Episode 177: Bruce Springsteen & Thom Zimny On The Music Of Western Stars

    Episode 177: Bruce Springsteen & Thom Zimny On The Music Of Western Stars

    It's been a very good week for Soundtracking, with our little film music podcast nominated for two gongs at the UK's premier audio industry awards, the ARIAs.
    And who better to celebrate with than one of the biggest names in the music business, Bruce Springsteen.
    Bruce joined Edith following the premier of Western Stars, the film he co-directed with his long-time collaborator, Thom Zimny, who also took to the stage. 
    Western Stars is a cinematic interpretation of his album of the same name, and features live performances in his barn, interviews, home video footage and Bruce's meditations.

    Episode 176: Sam Mendes On The Music Of 1917

    Episode 176: Sam Mendes On The Music Of 1917

    It's been a jolly good week for our latest guest on Soundtracking, whose new film 1917 has just landed him a couple of gongs for best film and director at the Golden Globes and several BAFTA nominations.
    We are, of course, talking about Sam Mendes, who joined Edith for a chat at London's Imperial War Museum towards the end of last year.
    In case you don't know, 1917 tells the story of two soldiers in World War I charged with delivering a critical message to fellow troops, and is based on an firsthand account told to Sam by his grandfather. 
    Remarkably, the action is shot to appear like one continuous two-hour take. The fact that he pulls it off in such convincing fashion is thanks in no small part to the efforts of legendary cinematographer, Roger Deakins.
    The score, meanwhile, is provided by Thomas Newman, who also worked with Sam on American Beauty and his Bond films.

Great Hans showcase!

Thank you for showcasing Hans Zimmer's wonderful music from the film. Jon's a knowledgeable filmmaker and I'm glad he used Hans in the new movie.

A Podcast Made for All Film/Music Appreciators

I’ve been listening to podcasts for well over a decade and I finally sought out a film music podcast and lo and behold, Soundtracking! Edith’s fabulous gets for guests and her true love for scores fits this show to be one of my favorites of all time. Music is critical to storytelling and whether we know it or not, we’re always communicating with vibrations, and Edith and her producers highlight the language and meaning filmmakers and composers instill to us the audience. Bravo!

Brilliant

Each week I look forward to a walk through movies via their soundtracks. I get unique perspectives on the creative process with directors, actors, composers and musicians. It is amazing that in our fast-paced world that we can set aside time for theatre of our ears, minds, and hearts. The host is both host and fan-girl. Bravo!
