    Celluloid Tunes contributor Mark Burgess selects his OWN favourites of 2018 in a companion piece to our webcast episode (and probably closer to this year's fan favourites than our episode was):

  1. I just read the Celluloid Tunes article by Mark Burgess on his favorites of the year that Thor posted and I've been struggling to put my finger on what I just can't seem to love about Michael Giacchino's non-animated scores (Jupiter Ascending was my latest try and it's just okay) and Mark said it perfectly when he said they're "sometimes bombastic and 'busy', perfect for big screen action, but difficult to process musically, and with more than a little thematic repetition." Wow, that's exactly how I feel! They're busy! I'm so glad to hear I'm not alone! And since I've also been steering clear of new scores by Giacchino because of that, it's nice to see him get back to what he's best at Incredibles 2. smile So maybe it'll also be a good reset for him to do something different in his next live action film.

    Mark's selections and preferences are very different from my own picks (which you can hear in the episode I mentioned three posts up), but I do agree on that particular sentiment in regards to Giacchino.

  2. I’m sorry I missed yours earlier Thor - a widely varied and interesting collection of scores in your top 10! I’m especially a fan of Mary Queen of Scots and Max Richter has taken up new residence as one of my favorite current composers - while I haven’t heard too many, I love Hostiles (and now Mary Queen of Scots). I also love The Nutcracker and the Four Realms and I can think of no one better than JNH to blend with Tchaikovsky and it’s a joy to hear their mashup. New to me was Helgi Sæmundur and I really enjoyed the track you shared from Stella Blómkvist. And I thought the track you featured from Papillon was just superb - hadn’t heard that yet either and will have to listen to the rest now! Anyway, a very nice episode! smile

    Cheers, Filmscoregirl! smile

    PAPILLON is a complex score -- from the beautiful choral stuff I played in the episode to other weird wind, percussion and voice effects to mirror the constant struggle between isolation and freedom in the story. Extremely well done, I thought.

    Celluloid Tunes # 60: The Norwegian Film Music Year 2018

    We sum up the preceding year, and play music from more than 20 feature films; most of these don't have, and will probably never get, a soundtrack release. So even if you don't understand Norwegian, you can scroll past the talk to the music clips for sampling what our country had to offer in 2018.
