IN THE SPOTLIGHT | FIVE AWESOME COMPOSERS WHO NEED TO BE SCORING HOLLYWOOD FILMS
By Erik Woods | SPOTLIGHT
This week in the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO SPOTLIGHT we will be listening to the music of five composers who I would LOVE to see have a crack at scoring a major Hollywood film. These five composers write the type of music that fell in love with when I was a kid; melodic, colourful, full scale orchestral music. Heck, it’s the stuff that still turns me on today. Some of these composers have dabbled in film and TV and some are concert composers who I think would fit in writing TRADITIONAL large scale orchestral music the likes of we rarely get to hear in Hollywood blockbusters anymore.
MARCH 2, 2015 – We begin the program with music by Kevin Kaska. Kaska is a composer, arranger, record producer, and conductor who has provided orchestrations for some of Hollywood biggest films. Now, it time for Kaska to get his big break. For instance, if John Williams was unable to finish the NEW Star Wars trilogy, Kaska should be the first composer considered by LucasFilm to continue the musical legacy. In this suite you will hear two selections. The 12 minute action masterpiece called BATTLE FOR ATLANTIS and the Egyptian flavoured THE GOLDEN FALCON.
