    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[...]

    THE 33, JAMES HORNER'S HYMN TO JOY

    Imagine that the tragic June 22, 2015 tragedy never took place. Would the response to Southpaw and The 33 by critics, listeners and fans have been different? Southpaw is about a man’s difficult road to redemption after the death of a loved one. Although Horner often tackled death scenes throughout his long and distinguished career, it was usually just that: one or two scenes. One recent example is Ben’s Death from The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), especially from 2:30 to 3:40, as the music comments on Peter’s mourning of his deceased uncle. Movies that specifically deal with death are rarer in the[...]

    SOUTHPAW, BETWEEN REMINISCENCE AND RENAISSANCE

     "Apart from my family and close ones, the Repertoire is the vastest memory I know and draw from. It represents the legacy of those who have managed to create an art, develop it and pass it on. It would be a tragedy for it to be forgotten or fall by the wayside. It takes strong-willed individuals, careful witnesses, men of action, creative and talented people bent on transmitting the legacy, teachers and students ... so that the memory of the brilliant ones who came before us never ever fades" James Horner   Billy Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal), world champion in light to middleweight boxing,[...]

    ANTOINE FUQUA: "JAMES HORNER WROTE THE MUSIC FOR MAGNIFICENT SEVEN"

    Since his sabbatical in 2013, we knew that James Horner had a new impetus: the projects are linked at a crazy speed, he took an interest in composing once again for the concert hall and enjoyed a newfound adoration.   After our previous article where we revealed that James Horner had already embarked on several projects, today new information confirms that his career took a new start. Indeed, Southpaw director Antoine Fuqua, with whom James Horner recorded his final film score scheduled for release on July 24 by Sony Classical, has told the NPR radio:   "I just found out a couple days ago[...]

    SOUTHPAW: FIRST LISTEN

    The very day James Horner partook of his final flight, we at James Horner Film Music were working to secure an advanced review copy of what we now know to be his final composition for film: the score to the film, Southpaw. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a champion boxer whose wife is killed, and his high life begins to disintegrate in a spiral towards rock bottom, even losing custody (and the trust) of his daughter. Enter a brutally unforgiving amateur trainer in the form of Forrest Whitaker, and… Redemption ensues. With a soundtrack produced by Eminem and featuring a[...]

    SOUTHPAW: SONY TO REMEMBER JAMES HORNER

    Sony Classical amended the front cover of its forthcoming score album to Southpaw, in memory of James Horner. The first original cover came out just one week ago, a day before James Horner's tragic passing. This is a sweet gesture from the label, although it forever sears the terrible reality.     The CD will be released on 24 July, and will be the first of the very last scores he recently did.   Find more information about this album in our previous article.

    INFORMATION ON SOUTHPAW

    JAMES HORNER CONFIRMED ON SOUTHPAW

    The Gorfaine Schwartz Agency, which represents James Horner officialy confirmed that the composer was engaged on Southpaw, the next film by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Equalizer) James Horner had discussed this project with us in our interview (Conversation with James Horner) published in early December: "I'm starting another film in a world I know nothing about. About a boxer, an American boxer. This is a story of a boxer who is right at the top of his career, then he loses everything, including his daughter. Then he has to get his daughter back, and make his way back… and it's just a m[...]

    CONVERSATION WITH JAMES HORNER

    "If you build it he will come ..." Just like Ray Kinsella, the character played by Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams, a voice (or rather my intuition) led me to create the Association and the James Horner Film Music website. Every minute, every hour spent working for this project was partly guided by an objective I held close in my heart: publish a new, previously unreleased conversation with James Horner. I gave myself five years to get there. Next January we will celebrate four years of JHFM... Unlike the composer, who never listens again to his old music and who never[...]
