    Chernobyl composer Hildur Guðnadóttir interview

    Self awareness is a thing Jóhann Jóhannsson work is brilliant and I would consider him someone of utmost integrity, illustrated by his life long work... How about having some respect for the recently departed?

    Vocabulary question

    Chernobyl composer Hildur Guðnadóttir interview

    They are indeed... To my ears the piano voicing and phrasing of the Newman cue is almost a sound-alike of the Part piece... But when I say "almost" can never actually know if it was a reference, an influence or just a coincidence.

    Maybe your judgement is off? Perhaps you need to invest more time in developing and trusting your instincts? But it also makes me wonder how it is you could ever decide to work on projects, that haven't even been made yet? Its our job to assess the worth of a project based on incomplete...

    Funny story, many years ago when American Beauty was released I visited a friends house who is a very experienced film composer & who has a classical background, and when I started raving about Thomas Newmans score for American Beauty she stopped me, dug through her CD collection, and put an...

    Chernobyl composer Hildur Guðnadóttir interview

    I think they are part of the same conversation though. And I think it is an interesting conversation... The two composers who opened my mind to minimalism are Arvo Part, and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Sakamotos score for the film Tony Takitani is incredible, emotionally deep & complex... AND very...

    Really? You can't work out whether you like a series until you have watched every episode? That seems quite odd. I knew I loved Breaking Bad from the first episode. I didn't need to watch the entire series to make that decision. The ideas behind it, the writing, the casting, the characters, the...

    Chernobyl composer Hildur Guðnadóttir interview

    A film that I think is an interesting reference for minimalist score is No Country For Old Men. I read some people think that it has no score, but it actually has about 20 minutes of score - it is just mixed very quietly. (I wanted to know so I exported the soundtrack from the DVD and crawled...

    Fair enough re lack of motifs etc, that is your taste... Specifically this series, I wouldn't know who did what - apart from the composer there was a sound designer/effects editor on the series (Joe Beal) who would also I presume have inherited the recordings from Chris Watson, so where you may...

    Dont sweat it... And its not like we dont hear enough about all the godawful maximilist 'epic' scores....

    Tips and suggestions about recording sound of old clocks/machinery

    step 1 = test recording. It would be worth buying an old clock off ebay or from a junk store, so you can do test recordings and check results before you go & start recording with the collection. I'd imagine a ticking clock is going to be fairly quiet, so quiet preamps, mics with low self noise...
