[EXCLUSIVE] A PHYSICAL RELEASE FOR LIVING IN THE AGE OF THE AIRPLANES!
During our interview in October 2016 with director Brian Terwilliger, he had discussed with us a possible physical edition of James Horner’s music for the documentary Living in the Age of Airplanes. JHFM : You did mention on Facebook the possibility that you’re considering a physical release. What’s necessary to make that happen? BT: I’m talking to a couple record labels that are very interested in doing it. They believe the demand is there, for sure. I’ve wondered if there was. Because, doing a physical release, as you know, is a much more complicated thing. Creating a physical product, designing a physical[...]
LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES: EXCLUSIVE REVIEW
If there is one word that can stand out from listening to Living in the Age of Airplanes, it's diversity! Indeed, there's a great variety of styles to each piece of music, from tribal to symphonic and even a salsa flavor! As the film encompasses everything aviation has blessed the world with, through eighteen countries and all seven continents – literally worldwide – the music had to touch on every facet of each location and time and does so with a fluidity and each disparate style fits into a cohesive whole....well, that salsa cue stands out a little, but it[...]

SIMON FRANGLEN: "THERE’S NOT A DAY THAT I DON’T THINK OF JAMES."
I still remember very well my first and only encounter with Simon Franglen. It was just before the Titanic Live concert in London. Throughout the afternoon during rehearsals I had seen him working alongside James Horner. The depth of their collaboration was evident. On many occasions, he had climbed the railings of the concert hall to access the back of the orchestra to ensure that everything was done properly with the synthesizers. A small detail that shows the perfectionism and professionalism of a musician. Minutes before the concert, while we each waited for friends in front of the Royal Albert hall, I[...]
