      Remembering James Horner to composer James Horner

      I didn't expect this documentary to move me the most in the Easter egg (I really cried when I saw it and translated him on a whim

      James Cameron(for Titanic):"…so i was sitting there cutting one day, and, a disk came in, that said 'sketch', i said, 'oh, okay, for the sketching scene'."

      James Cameron: "I was sitting there editing one day and I got a CD with 'Sketch' on it, and I thought, that was for sketching that scene."

      A big production with a soundtrack theme

      Most people pay attention to the picture and ignore the soundtrack when watching a movie. Unless they hear a particularly familiar or pleasant melody, at least I myself watched Luo Zhanfeng's "Yinghua X Music" many years ago and realized that the soundtrack is like seasoning. The images complement each other, enhancing the taste of the dishes without overpowering the host.

      This set of documentaries can be regarded as a major production on the theme of soundtrack, covering all the top...

      SCORE - This documentary about film scores

      Even though the soundtrack has long been recognized as a foil and serving the picture, the soundtrack is as important as the movie itself. The soundtrack is the composer's understanding and re-creation of the script and the director's intentions, and enables people to extend the perception of the movie picture. Many times, the memories of some plots and episodes are actually due to hearing specific tunes, such as hearing Concerning Hobbits and...

      Hans Zimmer, John Powell, let's take a look at the European folk music in the hands of the master of the soundtrack

      When it comes to folk music, the first thing that comes to mind is the flute? Suona? Hulusi? No! Folk music is not just a synonym for traditional Chinese music, it is actually an abbreviation for Folk Music. In Europe, where classical music is prevalent, there are countless kinds of folk music, and even some folk music has a longer history than classical music.

      Film Music

      Professionals do professional things, and artists fully display their talents in front of the profession, keep trying, explore, and tap more surprises and possibilities. Therefore, I see that every creator condenses all inspirations to burst into film works, Presented in front of the audience, they are amazed, immersed, and the melody is so melodious that one composer shyly said that he would see everyone's reactions when the film was released, and even ran to the bathroom at the end of the...

      It is not so much that music has revolutionized cinema, but rather that, as an earlier art form, music has been infused into the emerging but still vibrant art of cinema. The love for movies has been strengthened more than once by music. Like images, music, like images, radiates from the creator's mind and spreads out to the hearts of every audience. This is the charm of movies and...

      Very Hollywood, but no interview with Michael Giacchino. The BBC's Sound of Cinema is more comprehensive and much better than this...

      It feels like music creation can be completely independent of the image. A good soundtrack is one that leaves the sound and picture scene and can still give people a complete feeling, not just reminiscent of a scene. The film interviewed many professional Hollywood musicians, and also listed those historical heavyweights, but they are completely American-style soundtrack legends, and Europe and Asia are not mentioned... Slightly...

      It accommodates the creation process, technological change, artistic innovation, musical style appreciation of important historical figures, and future development trends of movie soundtracks. Newman and his son, Williams, Hans Zimmer, Morricone, John Horner... Almost all the masters of the soundtrack that can be imagined have video materials in the film. Film score masters, always love music more than the movie...
