Join Ian, Will, Wend and Rob for the latest and funniest instalment of “In Defence of” so far! They thoroughly enjoy discussing and bravely defending the final part of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith,written and directed by George Lucas. Featuring another phenomenal score by maestro John Williams, Revenge of the Sith ended the saga on a high, but has been unfairly tarnished over the years from it’s place in the prequel trilogy.

To finish off 2014, we each bring two of our favourite main themes to the table and discuss what they mean to us.
Our first selections include the militaristic Thunderbirds theme by Barry Gray, two themes from Bear McCreary including the musical palindrome that is Da Vinci’s Demons and the unsettling main theme to the television series Caprica, the unforgettable Tara’s Theme from Gone with the Wind by the prolific film composer Max Steiner. For the second round of choices we discuss the beautifully majestic Star Trek Voyager theme Jerry Goldsmith composed, the amazingly bombastic Wing Commander theme by David Arnold, the beautiful, childlike theme for To Kill a Mockingbird by Elmer Bernstein, and the infamous and arguably greatestsuperhero theme of all time, John Williams’ Superman theme.

Join Will and Wend as they explore the fantastic score to 1991’s The Addams Family, written by composer Marc Shaiman. They’ll be identifying themes, exploring their favourite musical moments, and providing you with an entertaining accompaniment to this macabre classic!
Will and Wend kick off the Halloween season by discussing three Halloween scores that are often overlooked. We begin with a modern anthology horror featuring a spooktacular score by Douglas Pipes. Trick ‘r Treat is melodically easy to follow and perfectly captures the spirit of Halloween. The second film score we look at is The Orphanage by Fernando Velázquez,a film composer that shows us you don’t always have to be over-the-top when writing for the horror genre, you can still write beautiful music. The El Orfanato score speaks more to the sadness of the children in-film than the horrors that lie in wait for them. Finally, we discuss Danny Elfman’s Sleepy Hollow score. No stranger to Halloween music, this dark realm of Tim Burton’s shows the composer’s clearly adept at scoring horror movies. We strongly encourage you to revisit all three of these underrated Halloween soundtracks and experience the thrills, chills and kills all over again!
Will and Wend discuss composer Alan Silvestri‘s score to Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Moving through each track in turn, they’ll be identifying themes, exploring their favourite musical moments and providing you the listener with an entertaining guide to this toontasticfilm score!

Join us for the debut episode of Sideshow Sound Radio, as we discuss the film scores that inspired each of us to become composers.
Starting with the symphonic and unashamedly emotional Star Trek First Contact score by Jerry Goldsmith and his son Joel Goldsmith, featuring an amalgam of almost all the Star Trek themes the film composer brought to the franchise including two new thematic gems, we go on to discuss the extremely underrated Thomas Newman and his intimate and well-crafted Meet Joe Black score featuring the heartbreaking cue “That Next Place”. Next, we discuss Frank Herbert’s Dune Soundtrack by Graeme Revell and the untraditional orchestration the composer used to help reflect the story of the three-part sci-fi mini-series, and finally, Danny Elfman’s dark, memorable, and tone-setting Batman 1989 score, orchestrated and conducted by the film score genius that was Shirley Walker.
