Attack of the Killer Soundtrack 67
This episode we are once again joined by composer Erich Stem as we play and discuss all the 2022 Oscar nominees for both Best Original Song and Best Original Score.
And as we work our way toward our own fifty year collaboration, we also bring up… Ashley Thursby, harmonium, Clair de lune, destruction, slap tonguing, watching the ceremony, collaboration, specific pieces only working with specific scenes, the leitmotif, how much time do you give a composer to write a piece, doesn’t know how to play a snare, neo-romantic melodies, Shenandoah, glockenspiel, listen as an album, the old version of Top Gun, Sofia Carson, director and songwriter, a percussion concerto, more international flavor, life-long projects, two different types of scores, metallic sounds, years of collaboration, sampling other composers and the Academy loves a narrative.
“No other approach to writing music would have worked for this film.”
