Some of you may have noticed the decrease in the number of publications on the site in the past year or so. Indeed, following our meeting with Sara & Emily Horner in March 2018, we became involved in two important projects and we had to put aside the articles for the site. We continue to follow the news with the releases (La-La Land / Intrada) but our efforts are focused on these two projects that are really close to our hearts. On this particular day of the 4th anniversary of James Horner's death, it seemed appropriate to us to talk to you about these two projects. We won't go into details yet, but at least you'll know.
We all know and love the vast musical universe James Horner left us. Even in this universe we know so well there are still parts that remain shrouded in mystery, pieces from the puzzle that are missing, some having been discovered and then swiftly forgotten. But soon, the time has come for us to show the world these forgotten and treasured gems. Our goal is that you will be able to listen to these gems soon. We will have more information to share with you in September.


James Horner's professional career deserves to be told. So we are writing a biography and we are aiming for a paper publication. The work is huge. We are ambitious and very rigorous in proposing the reference work on the composer. We rely on 300 sources: 150 interviews with the composer, some 20 unpublished or rare, and 150 interviews with collaborators, a third of which are unpublished. For example, at the beginning of James Horner's career, we had the great honour of interviewing Roger Corman, Nicholas Meyer, Christopher Cain… The book will offer a new look at the composer with exclusive information. As exhaustiveness is one of our main objectives, we are calling for testimony. The James Horner Film Music Association would like to collect as many testimonies as possible about the composer. So if you would like to share your anecdotes, your memories of the composer for him to appear in the book, please fill out the form below or click on this link.
Finally, if you think you can help us and invest in one of the two projects on a long-term basis, please contact us at the address indicated on this page.
Thank you very much in advance.

    I will absolutely contribute to this book when I have a moment. James Horner meant a great deal to me and I even named my recent first-born son James, partly for this legendary composer. I also am in the process of fixing his very flawed Wikipedia page. RIP James Horner.

    I still hope that the soundtrack to Romeo and Juliet will be released. I am looking forward to seeing the biography, I hope it will be translated into Russian.

    Really good News. Please go on. Looking forward to all of it!

  4. The final collaboration between Horner and director James Cameron acted as a summation of sorts of the composer’s career. Horner’s infamous tendency to self-plagiarize his own material is rendered on an epic scale here, with bits and pieces of

    I wish I could help. But I haven never seen the great master himself in person.That is a pity. A very great project. Looking forward. I really wish I could help as a big fan. Thank you for everything,James Horner Film Music Association.
