Where is Nien Nunb in this trailer? WHERE?

Han Solo and the Princess and the Trailer

Everyone and their pet tauntaun has written something about the new Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer, so here I’ll be regurgitating some thoughts about the musical score used for it: BUT FIRST, here’s the trailer, released earlier today. There are two familiar cues in the trailer, the Han Solo and the Princess cue and the Force theme. BUT SECOND, […]

25 Random Songs

Gary writes on Facebook: This is another one of those Facebook memes. You turn your music player to random and write down the first 25 songs it spits out. I’m not a big tagger, but if you want to do it, go for it. [[popup:amarok-feb2009.jpg:(thumbnail):AmaroK!:right:1]]Okay, Gary. I will go for it. There’s The Girl – Heart Central America – Bear […]

They’re Really Just Form Five Schoolkids

For a single glorious moment in time, the song Diamond Crevasse, as sung by May Nakabayashi the singing voice of Sheryl Nome in Macross Frontier, became the most heartbreaking song in the whole universe. Thrice I’ve seen the ending of episode 20 and thrice I teared up… though it might just be the damn conjunctivitis. [[image:diamondcrevasse01.jpg:The galactic fairy:center:0]] There’s so […]

Finally! Transformers: The Score!

One of the things that I looked for immediately after watching Transformers was the soundtrack CD. I was disappointed that there was only Transformers: The Album released which had, you know – a bunch of songs. The Linkin Park song What I’ve Done wasn’t too bad. So were the songs from Goo Goo Dolls and Smashing Pumpkins. But there was […]

Can Anyone Guess This Tune?

[[popup:aota.jpg:(thumbnail):I hope I remember the music theory:left:1]]So my keyboard, an old Yamaha PSR-300, has been out of commission for a while since the power adapter died a glorious death. Then, there was a movie score tune that has been playing incessantly in my mind, so I decided to write it down somewhere. But since the keyboard is non-functional, there was […]

No matter. I shall give this meme a whatfor like it’s never been given a whatfor before. A blog whatfor! A blorgthwthfor! Four Jobs I’ve Had In […]

Galactica & Pegasus Standoff (anyone with the full instruments willing to give this a shot?)

Straight From The Bear’s Mouth

Bear McCreary has become my favourite composer for soundtracks. I love what he did throughout Battlestar Galactica. The music isn’t a traditional symphonic orchestral score, although it is in some places. I can’t quite categorize listening to the score as a whole. It has string quartet, Japanese tako drums, Armenian duduk, bagpipes, gamelan, erhu…. a hodge-podge of traditional instruments being […]

Music Of My Choice In The Car Again

The cassette player in my car hasn’t been functioning for quite a long time, and I don’t have a CD player aboard. So I have been at the mercy of whatever the radio stations been churning out should I want to listen to music in the car. But from yesterday, all that have changed. I am now able to listen […]
