Recording session from The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (Daniel Pemberton, 2015) showing flutist Dave Heath providing some really fantastic sounds on bass flute.

I have a love/hate relationship with both of the films GRUMPY OLD MEN & GRUMPIER OLD MEN (especially the latter, but that’s a whole other post). However, I recently tried to track down Al Silvestri’s beautiful score from the films, when I came across this piano cover on Youtube by pianist Steven Bear. SO many different emotions were stirred after about 20 seconds into it, that I had to stop the video and then keep it muted while uploading this clip. Unfortunately, after a lengthy online search, it seems the score is nowhere to be found! If anyone has any info on this, please message me - I’d be eternally grateful!

I bought the soundtrack for Studio Ghibli’s latest film, When Marnie Was There, in anticipation of its western release next month, and I have to say that it’s absolutely stunning. Muramatsu’s score is heartwarming, nostalgic, emotionally affecting, and lushly orchestrated; it’s the most beautiful listening experience I’ve had in some time. Studio Ghibli films always have lovely scores, but this one is so particularly soulful and enchanting that I feel compelled to share a bit of it with Tumblr. If you like what you hear, please buy this score! It’s available on the iTunes store and it’s an ethereal listening experience.
