Some clips filmed by mockingbird466[instagram] from the show on
Saturday21st October, 2017 - specific time stamps are below.

Neither of us planned to film the show to be honest, so mockingbird filmed as and when she felt like it, which is why the clips are incomplete and then she ran out of memory during Oogie Boogie’s Song, which is just typical really!
Thought I would upload them anyway, fuxk it!

Ember Gleams - Down the Rabbit Hole {Sep 13, 2016}

Mostly horrible film composer clichés

Hans Zimmer: Loud, hella brassy. Fight epic battles to this, and you will be victorious. Once heard, music sticks in your ears and never leave. VI-III-V-II(maj) game is strong (Inception!) 

Alexandre Desplat: PERIOD. DRAMA. Piano theme. Piano theme. Harp. Sweet, innocent melodies. Piano theme again. Drink a cup of earl grey tea and pet your cat as you click on repeat.

Thomas Newman: Silence. Minimalism. Incomplete chords, neither major or minor - celebrating chords as just but a little more than intervals. Music, in the distance - like a whisper….. and not a single Oscar in sight…

Danny Elfman: The strange, the fantastical and the mystical. Take my hand and let us go down the rabbit hole, bathe in chocolate fountains or make acquaintances with Edward Scissorhands while increasingly creepy circusy music escalates in the background

James Horner: Bagpipes and celtic tunes. Flutes. Grandness. Warmness. Adventure across the sea, the Scottish hills or the mystical world of Pandora. (*cough* and a lot of recycled harmonic ideas *cough*)

Ennio Morricone: El maestro italiano = Music of western films for all eternity. And so much more.

John Williams: The Force itself.

New Release Review: Score: A Film Music Documentary

Jaws. Star Wars. Rocky. Indiana Jones. Psycho. James Bond. Batman. The Omen. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It’s impossible to discuss these landmarks of cinema - among countless others - without mentioning their scores, which continue to resonate to this day. The soundtrack can be seen as the heart of a film, as it possesses the ability to subconsciously elevate or manipulate viewers’ emotions. Score: A Film Music Documentary examines the power that music has in movies.

Virtually every modern name in film scoring provides insight into their process, including: Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight), Danny Elfman (Batman), Trent Reznor (The Social Network), Junkie XL (Mad Max: Fury Road), Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings), Steve Jablonsky (Transformers), Henry Jackman (Captain America: Civil War), Marco Beltrami (Scream), Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead), and Tyler Bates (Guardians of the Galaxy), to name a few. Various experts - from filmmaker James Cameron to historians to studio musicians - are also interviewed.
