Film Composers and Soundtracks

 

Information and music by film composers
are included on these multi-media DVD-Rs:

 


"This whole rubbish of other people orchestrating your music is so wrong...To orchestrate is like a thumb-print. I can't understand having someone else do it. It would be like someone putting color to your paintings."
-- Bernard Herrmann, page 43.

Unlike some film books that focus on a short time span,
A GUIDE TO FILM MUSIC includes over 85 years. The complete book is available on a multi-media DVD playable on your computer, with over 400 separate files including CD reviews and film composer tributes.


 

New 6th edition is now available on a DVD-ROM.
