5m3 Spotting Session for E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

Today's spotting session was produced with no small amount of labor and love. From beginning to end we discuss each instance of underscore in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, hopefully contextualizing this powerful music along with the cinematic narrative it supports. Steeped in the collection of thematic material we covered last week, we now explore just how those melodic threads are woven into the fabric of the complete film and hopefully illuminate the rich tapestry of music throughout. Today's episode also includes very poignant thoughts on the score from our recent guest - composer, orchestrator, and John Williams collaborator Conrad Pope. While we fully expected that combing through the music of E.T. cue by cue would be an emotionally powerful experience, it has been rewarding beyond our imagining. Please enjoy!
