Score Guide – The Matrix (1999)

Welcome to the desert of the real! In celebration of it’s 20th anniversary, for their 32nd Score Guide, Will & Wend shall be tumbling down the rabbit hole to discuss the highly original, postmodern score to The Wachowskis‘ 1999 sci-fi action-adventure, The Matrix, composed, orchestrated and conducted by marvellous composer, Don Davis.

Through the inventive approach of postmodern techniques, the composer employs atonality, dissonance, ostinatos and minimalist techniques to achieve a sound wholly original, for 90s action scores in particular. If the power of The Hollywood Studio Symphony, a 40-piece choir and boy soprano Theo Lebow weren’t enough, the soundtrack also features a collection of songs chosen by the directors that are almost equally well-loved in-context and we shall dive into some of these also, at the end of the show.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the flight as your hosts fling back the composer’s curtain to uncover all the shining musical moments that make this film score one of their faves of the last twenty years, guiding you through the soundtrack release track-by-track!

Mouse Music #6 – Frozen

Welcome to another episode of Mouse Music, a show celebrating the music and the history of the Walt Disney company. Thanks for tuning in! We have an icetastic episode for you today as we take a break from the Disney renaissance. In our sixth episode, we’re off to the icy, cold snowscape that is the kingdom of Arendelle to discuss the 53rd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, the highest-grossing animated film of all time, Frozen, with it’s multiple award-winning songs by the husband-and-wife songwriting team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, and it’s awe-inspiring soundtrack by the very gifted Christophe Beck.

Joining us here again at Sideshow HQ is our co-host from the West Coast, Rachel Herrick, to chat about this generation’s The Lion King, the 2013 musical fantasy Frozen. As usual we discuss our favourite songs, our first experiences watching Disney’s most successful film in recent years and why it deserves all the hype and accolades it’s received!

Alongside Wendell, our Disney Legend Chris Lyndon brings us another tasty gem from the Disney Music Archives. This week Chris brings us a lushly orchestrated and oft-forgotten song from the 1948 film Melody Time, ‘Once Upon a Wintertime’. Chris classes up the joint with his knowledge once again, he schools us all on package films, the tune’s incredible vocalist Frances Langford and legendary artist Mary Blair and her unforgettable work at Disney.

Finally, to celebrate Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary, Will, Wend and Chris will be setting sail on the Sideshow pirate galleon to see what magic awaits them at Fantasyland in their In the Parks segment. So grab your pixie dust, and meet us for a flight to Neverland! We guide you through one of Disneyland’s greatest classic rides, the endearing “Peter Pan’s Flight”. We’ll be covering all versions and their revisions over the years, the enchanting music and of course, our experiences aboard the suspended, dark ride, particularly at Walt Disney World.

Do you love Disney as much as us? Please get in touch! We´d really LOVE to hear your thoughts on Frozen, as well as your comments on Once Upon a Wintertime and Peter Pan’s Flight!

Score Guide – Puss in Boots (2011)

It is time once again to talk about a composer we’ve barely mentioned on the show. Join Will & Wend in San Ricardo for their score guide to the 2011 Dreamworks animation Puss in Boots and it’s amazing film score by the talented English film composer Henry Jackman.

Produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by Chris Miller, this spin-off prequel to the Shrek franchise features music which plays to the comedy, excitement, adventure, spirit and magic of this imaginative fairytale. Inspired by one of the most important Spanish composers of the 20th Century, Manuel de Falla, Henry Jackman used folk instruments from Latin America and blended the incredible guitar talents of Mexican duo Rodrigo y Gabriela with an orchestral palette influenced by Debussy and Ravel to create the score.

It is our pleasure to guide you through this under-appreciated and rarely talked about underscore, so sit back, relax, tap your feet and enjoy our 12th Score Guide as we explore the highly rhythmic and melodic instrumentation on show here, discussing all our favourite themes and musical moments whilst providing you, our attentive and gracious listener, with an entertaining and informative accompaniment to one of our favourite Henry Jackman scores.

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. We look past this and judge the film on it’s own merits, of which it has many. May the force be with all of us on this one!

Mouse Music #3 – Beauty and the Beast

Welcome one and all to Mouse Music, a podcast celebrating the music and history of the Walt Disney Company. After last month’s discussion of The Little Mermaid, we dive in to the next two films in the Disney Renaissance in our third episode. Starting with The Rescuers Down Under with an amazing score by Bruce Broughton we then talk about what most consider the perfect Disney film Beauty and the Beast, and it’s award-winning soundtrack by Alan Menken and masterful lyricist Howard Ashman!

Back by popular demand, puppeteer, voice actor, creator of HowAdorkableTV on YouTube, and friend of the show, Rachel Herrick joins us once again to continue the Disney Renaissance conversation. We have a thoroughly enjoyable chat with her about the 30th film in the Walt Disney animated classics, Beauty and the Beast, and briefly look at the first animated theatrical film sequel produced by Disney, The Rescuers Down Under.

Also, our very own Disney Legend Chris Lyndon returns with the best segment of the Disney Music Archives yet! Chris sits down with Wendell to present us with a forgotten Disney classic from the live-action musical Babes in Toyland (1961) called “Mother Goose Village and Lemonade”, adapted by George Bruns from a 1903 operetta by Victor Herbert.

Will and Wend end the show with their In the Parks segment. They guide you through Spaceship Earth, Epcot discussing the history of the attraction, it’s importance in Walt Disney World, their favourite version and the amazing music that accompanies the ride by Bruce Broughton.

If you love all that is Disney as much as us then please get in touch! We´d LOVE to hear your thoughts on The Rescuers Down Under, Beauty and the Beast AND Babes in Toyland, your preferred version of Spaceship Earth, as well as your favourite music by Bruce Broughton in the parks!

Star Wars Artwork for our Disney Music Podcast

Mouse Music #1 – Star Wars

Happy New Year and welcome to the inaugural episode of Mouse Music, a podcast celebrating the music and history of the Walt Disney Company. In our first episode we combine two of our great loves, Star Wars and Disney!

We have a blast talking with our friends Richard and Sarah Woloski from Skywalking Through Neverland about the recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer and irresponsibly speculating about the new movie.

Also, Wendell chats with Chris Lyndon about his time working at the Disney parks and to debut their new ongoing segment, the Disney Music Archives. Keeping with the space-travel theme, Chris presents us with a comical song from a 1955 episode of the Disneyland anthology series titled “Man and the Moon”, composed by the musical legend George Bruns.

Finally, in celebration of the 28th Anniversary of Star Tours, we start another new segment In the Parks by diving in to the history of the attraction and exploring the incredible music created for it by Richard Bellis and Michael Giacchino.

We invite you to share with us your reactions to the new Star Wars teaser trailer, your experiences riding the Starspeeder 1000, as well as your favourite music by George Bruns! Contact us via email: sideshowsound@gmail.com or tweet us: @sideshowsound.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!

Main Titles Artwork for our Film and Television Soundtrack Podcast

Episode 13 – Main Titles

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 greatest superhero theme of all time, John Williams’ Superman theme.
