NICK GLENNIE SMITH and JIM DOOLEY to attend SONCINEMAD
Two of the most famous Remote Control Studios composers, Nick Glennie Smith and James Michael Dooley, will also be attending SONCINEMAD - the 1st MADRID INTERNATIONAL FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL, taking in place in Madrid, Spain at June the 30th and July the 1st and 2nd.
We've first met James Dooley's name a few years ago as an additional composer. Hans Zimmer's student debuted this year with his first individual motion picture score, written for Simon West' When a Stranger Calls. His latest work is the animated short 'First Flight', which will be shown before Deramworks' 'Over the Hedge'. We asked the young composer about these works and the rest of his career.
Hans Zimmer's studio is dark red. The deep wood panels, flowing thick velvet curtains and the plush couch seem more fit for an 18th-century castle than a building in Santa Monica, Calif.
Zimmer sits at his desk - complete with piano keyboard and numerous computers, and coffee. He spins in his chair. He's excited and overworked. He just finished scoring 'The Da Vinci Code' - a project that consumed two years of his life. And now he is knee deep in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.'
Steve Jablonsky scores the TRANSFORMERS theatrical teaser
Soundtrack.net released pictures from the teaser' score recording session. Conducted by Bruce Fowler, with additional ambient music by Mel Wesson, this melody composed by Steve Jablonsky will maybe be present in the next Michael Bay's movie.
This past week, the Hollywood Studio Symphony recorded the score to one of this summer's most anticipated films: Snakes on a Plane. A 67-piece orchestra was employed to perform the score, written by Trevor Rabin (...)
Hans Zimmer has apparently been sued by the Holst foundation and music publishers ‘J. Curwen & Sons’. They claim elements of Zimmer’s Gladiator (in fact, a motif used in ‘The Battle’) borrow directly from Gustav Holsts ‘The Planets’, namely ‘Mars: Bringer of War’. Zimmer and his lawyers of course refute this, though the composer has likened parts of his score to Holst’s masterpiece, in terms of its musical language, in the past. (...)
Tiësto was honoured with this invitation and produced a trance anthem as well as an orchestral remix with the original euphoric orchestral break.

Radio edits of Tiësto and Pete n' Red Jolly Roger remixes are included on the Promotional CD.
