In this week´s newscast, Ian discusses the recent The Virgin Suicides soundtrack release by French band Air, music for the mini-series Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by composers Benoit Charest and Benoit Groulx, Trevor Rabin´s Max score, the latest releases from Walt Disney Records, including Inside Out by Michael Giacchino, and The Legacy Collection releases  Toy Story by Randy Newman and Cinderella, and to top it all off, Ian’s pick of the week!

Finally, this week the film music community was deeply saddened to learn of the tragic passing of film composer James Horner. We end the news with our thoughts on James Horner, as well as some words from our listeners and what his music meant to all of us. James has left us with an incredible musical legacy and helped inspire many of us in the Sideshow camp to become film composers ourselves and appreciate film music for the skilled craft it is.

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

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!
