    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[...]


    This episode focuses on Star Trek II and III and Jerry Goldsmith’s influence on the early stages of James Horner’s career. If you have information that could supplement this episode, please do not hesitate to contact us.   This episode covers the following scores: Star Trek II, The Wrath of Khan (1982) Star Trek III, The Search for Spock (1984)   The previous episodes of Fond Memories made several mentions of Jerry Goldsmith’s influence on the young Horner: such intimate dramas as Lilies of The Field (1963) and A Patch of Blue (1965) seep through in The Lady in Red (1979), the disturbing Alien (1979) left[...]


    In the months that have passed since James Horner’s tragic death last June, already several tribute concerts have been performed around the world. These events serve both to preserve the composer’s legacy and also remind us that Horner’s body of work now fully belongs to the history books of music. One of the first concerts that was announced and performed took place in Dublin in September. Performed by the RTE Concert Orchestra, conducted by the well known conductor David Brophy, the concert offered several highlights from Horner’s career. We were fortunate enough to be invited to one of the rehearsals,[...]

    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[...]


    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[...]


    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 did not exist. There was no group known as Fans of Film Music. No composer pages, no FilmTracks 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[...]
