The TV series “Breaking Bad” is known for its inspired music supervision. Its US music supervisor Thomas Golubic – who also handled the soundtracks for the shows “Six Feet Under”, “The Killing” and “The Walking Dead” – was recently interviewed by the trade magazine Music Week editor Tim Ingham at AIM’s recent Sync Conference in London.
Golubic goes into the details of his work – in particular his role as a middle-man between labels/publishers attempting to push up the music fees and the TV studios trying to bring down overall costs.
More news from the award-winning Italian soundtrack composer. Ennio Morricone is embarking on a major symphonic concert tour over the coming months, surely one of the last items that he will do that at this level. He will be presenting extracts from his extensive repertoire with the Roma Sinfonietta Orchestra, with whom he was been working for 12 years.
The Ennio Morricone concert tour will be appearing between December 2013 and July 2014 across Europe and the US.
For details about the Ennio Morricone concert tour and ticket information.
UPDATE: Ennio Morricone won an award as Best Composer 2013 at the European Film Awards in Berlin on December 7, 2013. The award went for his work on the Italian film “The Best Offer”.
Narip is the US National Association of Record Industry professionals.They organise high-level regular events in the US, plus occasionally in the UK and France. Those that cannot attend can now buy recordings of the sessions. They cost between $39.95 and $69.95. So I’d suggest they are for people that are serious about the business side of music (because it is a business, remember?).
Subjects include music business affairs and very detailed talks from top-level music supervisors. Check an example below with music supervisor Ryan Fitch.
You’ll find the complete list of recordings at NARIP.
The Dutch site 3fm has determined that Fatboy Slim was the king of the video in the nineties due to the fact that his videos dominated channels such as MTV, TMF and The Box so completely upon their release.
The 50 year-old Englishman Norman Cook mad a huge impact (and a considerable fortune) with his innovative and accessible dance music. A key part of the success was the often-hilarious music videos that accompanied the tracks.
These include “Praise You”, which also happened to be one of the first flash mobs to be caught on camera (and isn’t it funny to notice that no one is filming it with their phones – those were the days).
