Aggie's Music

I usually blab about film scores on this blog, but I don't mind the occasional tangent towards other interests. :)

Rest in peace.

R.I.P. Ingmar Bergman

R.I.P. Michelangelo Antonioni

A very sad two days. Antonioni is one of my favourite directors, and one day I will explain why he's so unique and miraculous. In the meantime, please watch their films... Blow-Up especially.

Robert Redford in The Natural - The Final Homerun

Randy Newman is one of the few modern film composers that I admire, and The Natural is one of my favourite scores. It's not complicated, and the horns are powerful.. they stick to your head easily.

It's the main theme of the film, and I belive it was played elsewhere in the film, but this is where it really gives the scene life. Sure, there are pretty sparks flying around the screen, and everything is in dramatic slow-mo, but it's the music that really sets the magic.
