    FOR GREATER GLORY: AN ANALYSIS AND AN INTERPRETATION

    When in 2011 James Horner was offered the Mexican-made Cristiada (re-titled For Greater Glory for its international release), he realized he was placing himself in the service of the faith crowd. And faith-based movies are invariably a risky proposition. The project marked the directorial debut of Dean Wright, who had acted as special effects supervisor on the first two Narnia movies and had made significant contributions to Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. While For Greater Glory features some commendable digital matte paintings, the production’s modest budget precluded the kind of[...]

    MEMORIES OF LONDON AND STAVANGER 
BY KARIM CHAMMAS

    When Jean-Baptiste asked me if I wanted to write something regarding Cristiada, I looked up the only two texts I have ever written regarding James. One in 2011 after the visit at Abbey Road for the old Hornershrine, and one after James passed away in 2015. Reading both now feels like there are ages between them, probably the only similarity being that I had trouble putting my feelings into words both times. I can remember the excitement and that overwhelming surreal feeling of having experienced something so out of the ordinary in 2011, but also the insecurity of probably having[...]

    COLLAGE – THE LAST WORK

    Collage - The Last Work is a James Horner compilation album that you’ll definitely want to listen to - and will revisit time and again. It not only presents the concert piece that lends the album its title, but also serves up generous re-recordings of cues from previous scores, one in an absolutely stunning new arrangement. To put the icing on the cake, the album offers two excellent suites from the 2012 student film, First in Flight, one of Horner’s final scores, in a stellar orchestral performance that enriches the score originally recorded for the film, which was performed electronically[...]

    IT'S LOGICAL - EPISODE 1: TOWARD THE SKY

    "It's logical" is a series of articles about the logical construction, coherence, visual, narrative, symbolic and emotional dimensions of the many and significant allusions and quotes that James Horner always peppered his work with. Beyond the partial reprisal of the piano melody from Casper (1995), a melancholy interpretation of childhood lost, The Spiderwick Chronicles (2008) presents a theme of flight. Its first appearance occurs in the middle of the film, and at 3'22 into The Flight of the Griffin, scoring a fantastical creature (half-eagle, half-lion) which travels between the realms of reality and imagination.  A bridge of sorts between the earth and[...]

    THE NORWEGIAN PREMIERE OF PAS DE DEUX: THE MUSICIANS’ PERSPECTIVE

    The following articles were written in May, shortly after the Nordic premiere of Pas de Deux in Stavanger. They have been left unaltered as a reminder of the bright and eventful time in the months preceding James Horner’s death, both for the musicians and fans alike. We also present here, our final interview with James Horner, conducted on the morning of May 14. 2015, together with Mari and Håkon Samuelsen. A huge thank you to Mari Samuelsen, Håkon Samuelsen, Torodd Wigum, Eric Rigler and Clara Sanabras for your time and your kindness in talking with me for these interviews. Also a[...]

    CINEMA MUSICA: INTERVIEW WITH JAMES HORNER

    Conducted by Basil Boehni, Vice editor-in-chief of Cinema Musica.Held: 31 October 2011, in Frankfurt Am Main (Germany).Published in Cinema Musica in April 2012 (in German).The two photos of James Horner were taken by Matthias Keller. Basil Boehni (BB): You’re working in the movie business for over 30 years very successfully. Can you still just sit back, relax and enjoy a movie or do you immediately jump into an analytical viewing of the film?James Horner: Well, when I’ve finished a film I really don’t ever watch the movie again. I see the movie when it’s been mixed – the music, the effects[...]

    eDIT FILMMAKER’S FESTIVAL: MASTER CLASS WITH JAMES HORNER

    Following several statements from James Horner from his Master Class talk conducted by Matthias Keller, Editor of Bavarian Radio, on 31 October 2011. How he got into film music: I studied classical music and first wanted to become a classical composer. For getting commissions and grants you’re told to have a proper so-called power base. So I did the PHD and started writing ‘serious music’ (like Conversations and Spectral Shimmers). And one day I was asked to score a student film. And I agreed to it. I didn’t know anything about film. I wasn’t a great film buff. I was doing[...]

    CLARA SANABRAS : FOR GREATER CLARA

    If one had to sum up the music of For Greater Glory in one word, it would be a name. In Latin, Clara means shiny, or glorious, and these two adjectives perfectly suit James Horner's latest album. But this word also refers to a wonderful person who kindly accepted this interview, a year ago, and had never forgotten about us since then. A very accessible and pleasant person, Clara Sanabras takes time to go back on this collaboration which, just like the collaboration with Rahat Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, is a real landmark event in James Horner's achievements.     How did you[...]
