  1. This book on SIGNS turned out to be a disappointment. Rather than being concentrating on the music of the film, there's a summary of JNH's career and scoring technique, a potted history of the context of the movie and the 'sounds of science fiction and Shyamalan' before we get settled into the film's music. Of the 186 pages, a discussion of sketching and scoring the film doesn't start until page 105 and an analysis of the score doesn't appear until page 139.

    It would be difficult to analyse a score that is so rooted in such a limited selection of motifs and musical devices, and it was interesting once talk of the actual score began, but there was perhaps not enough to the score itself for it to be the subject of its own book.

    I wonder what Erik Heine's credential are for critiquing critiques? wink

  2. Brain Surgeon
    Keith Black, MD

    A touching and involving reading about a world-renounced brain surgeon who people turn to when others tell them they have no other options left.

    And not just any specialist, but the best of the best of the best, with honors, who did more than just become known as an excellent brain surgeon, but made medical accomplishments in the fight against cancer and tumors. And his life would make a great TV movie (which I'd have scored by Lee Holdridge).

    Absolutely worth your time.
