A Good Listen
I should have started listening to this podcast when it first started. The website from which it stems has helped me over the years when I just wanted something new to listen to. The interviews presented here help to give me an insight into how the composer thought or felt when scoring their work.
Great Movie Score Podcast!
If you're into listening to the orchestrial scores from film, TV, or video games, or just curious about its seduction to the ears, this is the podcast for you. Listen to fellow "soundtrack geniuses" discuss the scores they may be currently listening to, sidetrack discussions from the scores most looking forward to during a season to love/hate discussions regarding the score to "Hanna" and "The Social Network". You may just discover a hidden gem or two that you may never have listened to otherwise. The interviews with working composers are always in-depth, informative and entertaining. A solid podcast for musicians and for those that just like listening.
Hey Chris I've been listening to all of your podcasts and I really appreciate all the interviews and roundtable discussions you've had on the show. They were very informative, insightful and entertaining. Keep it up, and I'll keep checking back. BTW, I love your Tracksounds website as well. One of most well designed soundtrack review site on the web.
