It’s Sounds of cinema month
BBC both radio and television are celebrating this event by broadcasting a number of fantastic documentary’s and feature films. I managed to catch Sound Of Cinema The Music That Made The Movies..
Martin Scorsese, arguably the most musically literate of all directors gives a great account of the effect two Hitchcock film scores had on him as a child, as well as his two classic 1970s films – Taxi Driver, scored by perhaps the greatest ever American film composer, Bernard Herrmann, and Mean Streets, which had no composer at all, just Scorsese’s favourite tracks from his own record collection.
Also worth checking out is BBC 6 Music who are running The Sound Of Cinema Series where you can listen to 20 of the best film scores ever written. BBC – Sound of cinema season
