STAR TREK II ARCHIVES: STARLOG AND CINEFANTASTIQUE

As part of the writing of Episode 6 of Fond Memories, we found two articles originally published in Cinefantastique and Starlog. We propose them as transcripts below. Special thanks to Ken Hanley (Fangoria), Randall D. Larson, Chodisetti-Ravi Shankar Chandra, Byron Brassel and John Andrews.   Going back in time to October 1982, from the 63rd issue of the famous, long since deceased Starlog magazine, comes a geriatric interview with a young James Horner about the scoring of the endearing cinematic triumph: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Having been written in a time when the name James Horner was not known to

JAMES HORNER - MUSICAL AESTHETICS AT UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES - MARCH 1992

UCLA's ethnomusicology department has released a video from March 1992 when James Horner spoke for an hour. This historic document begins with a short introduction by Professor Steve Loza and an intervention of Scott Lipscomb. James Horner starts talking at 00:19:16.     The composer explains the following topics: His career, his work for Roger Corman, why he has chosen film music, how to get hired on a movie, how the Oscars operate, handling directors who are too close to their temp tracks, orchestrating on his own vs assigning an orchestrator, his work on Aliens, working within Hollywood where each idea has to

BAFTA GURU: A CONVERSATION WITH JAMES HORNER

29 April 2015. With host Tommy Pearson and a small audience, an important 75 minutes was to unfold. It is disheartening to note that this, a typical but always insightful interview with Tommy Pearson, would be the last interview our late maestro would give before his sudden passing on June 22, 2015. With this in mind, the angelic manners of James Horner's conveyance of thought are ever more heartbreaking as he describes some of his career highlights and passions to Tommy and the audience. His wonderfully unique way thinking and speaking those thoughts will be as sorely missed as the mystical

JAMES HORNER INTERVIEWED BY TOMMY PEARSON

Saturday, January 31, 2015. 17:00. For this particular episode of "Saturday Night at the Movies" for Classic FM, Tommy Pearson indulged in a conversation with James Horner in the summer of 2012, at his home in Los Angeles. Contained within the two hour running time is a well thought out, in depth and intelligent conversation between two people... one, a passionate music lover, the other, a true genius of the modern art of music composition and its magical ability to break and heal our hearts and souls. In this quiet conversation, James Horner gives us insights into how he began his film

AUSTRALIA, 1991: JAMES HORNER SEMINARS

Having published interviews given in the early 80's to the CinemaScore magazine (see our article), we continue our exploration of the archives of the past with the publication of the two seminars which James Horner participated in, December 1991 in Australia.   That year, the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) was celebrating film music with a series of courses and activities to recognize and celebrate the contribution that music makes to the screen experience. James Horner had made the trip to take part in a variety of national activities intended to stimulate an atmosphere of appreciation for the work of

CINEMASCORE COMBINED HORNER ARTICLES

The early 1980s was a watershed time in film music. After the success of Star Wars, studios began producing a flood of science fiction/fantasy & action/adventure films, calling for magical, exciting, and densely orchestrated music. A whole new crop of young composers were stepping up to the challenge.   It was an exciting time to be a fan of film music; but it was also a lonely time. The robust, inter-connected community of soundtrack lovers did not exist. Film Score Monthly and jwfan.com did not exist. There was no group known as Fans of Film Music. No composer pages, no FilmTracks soundtrack

VIENNA 2013: JAMES HORNER INTERVIEWED BY THOR JOACHIM HAGA

Thursday, October 3, 2013. Amidst the annual Hollywood in Vienna music event, James Horner was interviewed by Thor Joachim Haga for Celluloid Tunes and the Norvegian Web Magazine Montages.no. Included in this very worthy hour are interviews conducted with film composer David Newman, who conducted the orchestra in the above mentioned Hollywood event, as well as the concert producer Sandra Tomek. However, the obvious highlights are the few questions asked to James Horner himself, in between actual sound recordings from the concert itself. Clips including the title sequence from the 1982 space opera Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan, the
