Reel Change: The Lydian Mode

In today's Reel Change we explore film music's most magical palette, the Lydian mode. From the twistedly comic to the ethereally cosmic, we chart Lydian's evocative power around the world and into the 20th century of American film music. Join us for a podcast that unites Leonard Bernstein, Ravi Shankar, James Horner and more. It's a celebration of true movie magic - enjoy!
