    "It's logical" is a series of articles about the logical construction, the coherence, the visual, narrative, symbolic and emotional dimensions of the many and significant allusions and quotes that James Horner always peppered his work with.  Although it’ not the first Horner score that comes to mind, the music for 1989’s Dad is typically sentimental and overflowing with subtle emotions. When his wife is admitted to hospital, retired Jake Tremont (Jack Lemmon) is home alone for the first time. He turns to his son John (Ted Danson), who teaches him to be independent. During this time, John gradually becomes aware that[...]


    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[...]


    Many thanks to Joe Kara and Rocco Carrozza, for giving us the opportunity to write this article. “The first thing that I try and find is the emotional content of the film and the tone of the film, and what instruments, what sounds, are going to paint for me the emotions that I feel.” James Horner source: npr.orgUpon his first viewing of Patricia Ruggen’s film, The 33, James Horner was awash in many different emotions. We’re informed by the director’s revelation shortly after the composer’s disappearance that he had been very moved by the film’s story: “He just wanted to make movies that he[...]

    The official website for The 33 has released several minutes of James Horner’s film score. The music released is from the final rescue of the miners near the end of the film. All the composer's genius shines here with melodies that feature the talents of flutist Tony Hinnigan. The movie The 33, directed by Patricia Riggen, tells the story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped in a mine in the Atacama desert, 700 meters under the surface, when the mine caved in on August 5, 2010. For 69 days, the miners were stuck as rescue teams on the surface,[...]


    The movie The 33, directed by Patricia Riggen, tells the story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped in a mine in the Atacama desert, 700 meters under the surface, when the mine caved in on 5. August 2010. For 69 days the miners were stuck as rescue teams on the surface, with the eyes of the world on them, struggled to find a way to get them out, all the while food and water was rapidly becoming scarce for the miners trapped below. This kind of movie is exactly the sort James Horner looked for later in his career.[...]


    "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[...]


    A month after conducting in London the music of Jean-Jacques Annaud's Wolf Totem, James Horner continues with the recording of the Chilean film The 33, from Mexican-American director Patricia Riggen (Girl in Progress – 2012), who brings together on screen Antonio Banderas, Lou Diamond Phillip, Gabriel Byrne, Juliette Binoche, Martin Sheen …   The film is based on the mining disaster of 2010 in which a group of thirty-three miners have been trapped in the San Jose mine in Chile. The action will focus on the two-month effort to try to save them. The release is scheduled for 2015.   Armen Ksajikian, prolific and[...]
