This was fantastic - can't wait for the rest of the Vertigo dissection. Loved all the music theory in there. Excellent point about Hermann creating an "environment" so to speak. He does more than score a film but in his "overtures" creates the platform and sets the stage. I feel like modern day composers don't do this as much - the accompany the action. And like Hermann using instruments very carefully, Bear McCreary did the same for 10 Cloverfield Lane in using the blaster beam to really create a very eerie (and again mental) landscape for the film. Very much looking forward to more podcasts.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for listening - great point about McCreary's score (he is one inventive composer to be sure :)ReplyDelete
