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.

We trek to Discovery Island to discuss the iconic centrepiece, the Tree of Life, the 3D show inside, It’s Tough to Be a Bug! based on Pixar’s ‘A Bug’s Life’, and the hilariously-titled, musical earworms that accompany the attraction including a show-stopping theme song by George Wilkins and a brilliant score, composed by film composer Bruce Broughton who it is our pleasure to talk about once again.

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.

Overlooked Halloween Scores Artwork for our Film Soundtrack Podcast

Episode 9 – Overlooked Halloween Scores

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!

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.
