    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[...]


    For many fans of James Horner’s music, 1993 was a high water mark, in terms of both quality and quantity, with no fewer than 13 films released that year featuring music written by James Horner.  Chief among them was Horner’s score to Searching for Bobby Fischer, an intimate true story about a young chess prodigy, starring Joe Montegna as the boy’s father and Ben Kingsley and Laurence Fishburne as the boy’s opposite-ends-of-the-spectrum chess mentors.  Horner’s score is simultaneously deeply intimate and exhilarating, offering us the composer’s earliest examples of accelerated piano ostinati representing the thrill of a brilliant intellect at[...]


    Astonishment and questioning. Such were our both reactions nine months ago, while we were waiting for Black Gold, when the composer’s long-time editor Jim Henrikson announced the possible involvement of James Horner to the new theatrical adaptation of Spider-Man. Astonishment, first, as this is clearly not a universe into which the composer is used to venturing. If we pay close attention to his filmography and if we exclude The Mask Of Zorro, out of more than hundred films he did only one film based upon a comics character, i.e. an avenger who distinguish him/herself in his/her extraordinary abilities or in[...]


    There are names you will often run into on James Horner’s album covers: Ian Underwood, Tony Hinnigan, Simon Rhodes ... For 25 years one of them has been present almost every time, proof of a collaborator who has become indispensable. James Horner speaks of him thus in the liner notes to the soundtrack album for Troy: "my wonderful friend without whose guidance and wise counsel I would be lost." This close and faithful staff member is the legendary music editor, Jim Henrikson. Prior to working with James Horner, he participated in projects for television (Star Trek: The Original Series) and classic[...]


      Wednesday, October 2, 2013, Vienna. Around 3pm, James Horner arrived at the Max Reinhardt Seminar with Varese Sarabande executive producer Robert Townson and Dr. Sandra Tomek, Managing Director and Artistic Producer of Hollywood In Vienna.     For an hour and twenty minutes, before an audience of 200, the composer answered questions from Robert Townson and the public. The conference featured five video clips from the following films: A Beautiful Mind (Creating "Governing Dynamics"), Braveheart (A Gift of a Thistle), Legends of the Fall (The Ludlows), Avatar (Jake's First Flight), and finally Titanic (Rose). James Horner's emotion during each sequence, the precision of[...]


    Aliens - Two-Disc Collector's Edition [Dvd 2004] Alien Quadrilogy [Dvd 2004]   Documentary title: The Final Countdown Sequence time: 9'22 James Horner reflects on the difficult conditions in which he had to compose and record the soundtrack. He says that when he arrived in London, the film was not completed. He therefore composed 97 minutes of music within 15 days. The aging equipment during recording sessions, sleepless nights and icy relations with producer Gale Anne Hurd, are all explained in this documentary. © 20th Century Fox The Amazing Spider-Man - Four-Disc Combo [BLU-RAY 3d / Blu-Ray / Dvd / Ultraviolet Digital Copy] (2012) The Amazing Spider-Man - Three-Disc[...]
