    Adventures on Earth, the virtual recording

    shocked

    Listen to the first 40 seconds and if you are able to tell this is not done live by real instruments you have my respect.

    Amazing really how close it actually sounds to the real recording.

    Yeah, I can hear it's samples, but it's extremely well done. If I didn't know it beforehand, it would have taken me a while to realize. Cool!
    I am extremely serious.

    That's nice to know, but I don't think Williams will set his foot on European soil ever again. Most likely, I picture a video greeting. Which is strange, when you think about it, because he keeps travelling all over the US, and it isn't much further from NY to London than it is from LA to NY.

    Yeah, odd really!? Williams was in and out of London all the time during a few decades. And didn't he once say the LSO were his favourite orchestra to work with?

    Given that he's 80 I can understand it - but it would be great if he did come back for some concerts or something (like Thor says, seems very unlikely now).
  2. http://www.jwfan.com/?p=4931

    I've been to Tanglewood the last two Augusts for John Williams' Film night and they've been unbelievable. I couldn't make it this year for his 80th birthday and of course two of my other heroes, Yo-Yo Ma and Steven Spielberg, go and turn up on stage!! Oh well, such is life, at least we have the video linked above to give us a feel for it, I had goosebumps from 01:30 onwards. Very much hoping to see him perform again but if I don't I'll always treasure those two very special nights in Western Massachusetts. Can't wait to hear Lincoln in a few months.
  3. Wonderful tribute! The man deserves such recognition for all the magnificent music he has given us. beer

    Great radio interview with Williams discussing Marvin Hamlisch, Tanglewood and young people. I love his humble demeanour in interviews.

    Nice one. cool Such a gentle voice on this giant of film music.

    To think that John Williams was younger than I am now when I first and last saw him. spin

    You HAVE listened to the infamous Film Music Radio interview, right?

  6. No. Should I?
  7. If you want to learn that Terrence Malick and Wolfgang Petersen are idiots who don't understand great music and can't make movies? Yes.

  8. Appreciate the composer for his music, not for who he is, I say.

    But yes modesty is a virtue and it's hard to maintain when you are aware of your talent and skills.

    I didn't think Horner said anything inappropriate in that interview and after seeing The New World and hearing the unused score I quite agree with him. Malick is great at making HIS kinds of movies but it was much less moving than it could have been.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!
  10. If he's badmouthing Malick, then it's understandable. I'd be pissed too if I was constantly having to change and re-write music, only for almost none of it to be used in the end.

    We are talking about whether Horner is humble or not... not about whether what he said was appropriate or not.

    Horner = NOT humble.

  11. Well I suppose it's hard to be humble when you score two of the highest-grossing films ever made...
  12. But back to Williams. I've seen him in interviews and I do admire his reserved demeanor.

    John Williams was humble when he held that title.

  13. The sad thing about Williams' reserve is that I suspect he is quite an interesting thinker on a number of subjects -- whether it be the films he's worked on, or a wider subject array. But because he's the soul of discretion and collaboration etc, I suspect we'll never really know much of what goes on upstairs with him. At least various outbursts from Horner/ Goldsmith/ Herrmann and others over the years left us in doubt as to their feelings. wink

  14. Why is that a sad thing? If the man is reserved than that's his godgiven right. It's how he expresses himself through his composing what's important.

    If a composer has a tendency to be self-centered, than that's his right too. If he writes great music by being so, that's all I care about.

  15. The sad thing is that I'm sure it would be interesting to hear what he thinks. The same way it was sad that when my grandfather died, a reserved man if ever there was one, one could tell his life had been a fascinating one, but he never truly gave his thoughts on it all to anyone. Interesting people are worth knowing.

    Of course, they have to right to keep it all to themselves if they so wish.
