Thank you for all you´ve given us James. You will be missed but not forgotten.

The Scores That Inspired Us Artwork for our Film Soundtrack Podcast

Episode 1 – The Scores That Inspired Us

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.
