As Promised "SIX STRINGS" Magazine [Collection] is all Available on Facebook!


Well, good day... I wanted to share the whole collection of "SIX STRINGS" magazine on Facebook.... It ran for a two years and featured Movie, Music and More inside of 14 issues. Many of you may not have know I designed every page from cover to end and had some great contributing writers.

Our monthly magazine readership was only a couple hundred, but our site was still in the thousands... which is why we stopped publishing when the site numbers dropped drastically. We lost a couple of our supporters, which I hope to get back... as their concerns our attention dropped even though they received more coverage within the pages of "SIX STRINGS"... it was a great adventure, we interviewed some great people, covered some great stuff and as I said "great contributing writers"...

So if you could take the time to have a look, maybe share this post and know we thank you...
I will be tagging people within those pages where possible and well here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Six-Strings-Magazine-876527699149660/photos/?tab=albums

Intrada: "THE LEGEND OF THE LONE RANGER" Music by John Barry


For this 1981 ITV retelling of the legend of the Lone Ranger, composer John Barry was brought in to provide the musical world of one of the most famous characters from the Old West.  Having only scored two prior westerns (Monte Walsh and White Buffalo), Barry nonetheless loved all things American and embraced its 19th-century history and expansion into the west, as is evidenced by this spirited score. His main theme (turned into the vocal "The Man in The Mask" sung by none other than Merle Haggard) served as the heroic statement for the Lone Ranger. To top it off, Barry invited Paul Jones to play harmonica in the score, adding just that much more traditional western color. The result is a soaring, if not nostalgic, score.

Intrada's release features the original program as released by MCA back at the time of the film's release. All attempts to recover the original and complete session masters met with disappointment, as no archive seemed to contain them.  Not only that, but the original LP master was also missing. As such, nothing existed to support any further release of the score.  However, with the help of modern technology and very clean and dynamic pressings of the original LP, Intrada was able to bring about CD quality reproduction of the LP program so you can enjoy another Barry gem rescued from oblivion.

This version of the Lone Ranger would combine a revised origin story with high-stakes adventure. In 1854 Texas, young John Reid sees his parents murdered and is adopted by a Native American tribe, learning their ways and becoming fast friends with a boy named Tonto. Eventually retrieved by his older brother, a Texas Ranger, he is sent back east for education and, years later, returns to Texas to practice law. That career is cut short when he and a group of Rangers are ambushed by the Cavendish gang and left for dead. The grown-up Tonto discovers John Reid, barely alive, and nurses him back to health. Vowing to avenge the others, he dons a mask, finds a noble steed, and takes on Cavendish—whose plot to take over Texas involves kidnapping President Ulysses S. Grant.

Intrada: "REMOTE" Music by Richard Band


For the second Moonbeam production, 1993's Remote, composer Richard Band blended his new style of orchestra and electronics to create a whimsical, light-hearted adventure score. The main title was animated to Band's music, setting the tone for the score to follow.  It combines a bright, propulsive sense of adventure with strings conveying child-like innocence while crisp brass counterpoints with rambunctious comedy.  Band invests Remote with a near-constant sense of motion, especially given the comic stalking of its playthings. In a way, it’s a PG-subversion of the composer’s Puppet Master soundtracks  As Band notes further about his style on these films:

The model I had created in scoring Prehysteria! most assuredly continued with Remote...it was around this time that music budgets were being significantly cut, but as in Prehysteria! I still managed to get just enough money to afford a respectable violin section as well as a small brass section and a woodwind or two. This method of combining real players with sampled instruments was becoming a necessity and one of my signatures as well.

Taking a page from Home Alone, here, the nerdy, precocious kid who’s home alone runs away to a model-home residence to escape the wrath of his mom, who’s none too pleased to hear he’s been expelled because of his gadgets’ classroom antics. From the viewpoint of his attic hiding place, Randy watches a trio of bumbling crooks use the seemingly empty place as a hideout. Soon enough, their noggins and limbs are getting rent asunder as Randy unleashes his mechanical friends on these three stooges, with planes, cars and a yodeling mountain climber serving up a rude eviction notice through a series of comically painful pratfalls.[http://store.intrada.com/]

Sony Music/Masterworks: "THE LAST KINGDOM" Music by John Lunn and Eivør


Sony Music today announces the November 9th release of THE LAST KINGDOM (Original Television Soundtrack) with music by Emmy-winning composer JOHN LUNN and vocals by Faroese recording artist EIVØR.  The third season of The Last Kingdom will premiere November 19 on Netflix. Produced by Carnival Films, the award winning producers of Downton Abbey, The Last Kingdom is based on The Saxon Stories by historical novelist Bernard Cornwell and adapted for television by award-winning screenwriter Stephen Butchard.

Uhtred, born the son of a Saxon nobleman, is captured by the invading Danes and raised as one of their own. Forced to choose between the country of his birth and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested. What is he – Saxon or Dane? On a quest to reclaim his birthright, Uhtred must tread a dangerous path between both sides if he is to play his part in the birth of a new nation and, ultimately, recapture his ancestral lands.

JOHN LUNN is the award winning composer of countless celebrated British TV dramas, including Downton Abbey, The White Queen, Bleak House and Shetland. After the worldwide success of Downton Abbey, John was eager to tackle something entirely different, and The Last Kingdom provided the perfect opportunity. Set in 9th century England, the show explores the battles and power struggles that waged between the Danes and Saxons; resulting in a conflict that would eventually shape England into what it is now. From the outset, the show’s producers were keen to avoid an orchestral, Hollywood-esque score, and so they worked alongside John to develop a more experimental and dynamic approach to the music. Initially, the score involved an armory of analogue synths, sequences and heavily distorted double bass, and it worked well… but there was something missing, something unique that would become the very essence and signature of the series. John found it in the amazing vocal and songwriting talent of Eivør.

EIVØR was born in the Faroe Islands. Her background and experience of performing across the Nordic and Scandinavian territories have shaped her unique and powerful musical talent. After John saw a video on YouTube of Eivør performing her signature recording “Trøllabundin,” which encompasses her incredible vocal range, throat singing and Nordic drum playing, he immediately realized how Eivør could be the integral part of The Last Kingdom’s sound. After an initial recording session in London, it became clear to the producers that what John and Eivør were creating was perfect for the series. Working as a team, John and Eivør have composed the score for all three seasons of the show so far, and their latest project harnesses the phenomenal sounds and mood of The Last Kingdom into one incredible album.

As John and Eivør produced the music for each season of the show, they were both aware that the material being composed had much more to say, and could be taken to places beyond the TV screen. So, when Carnival Films proposed releasing the soundtrack, John and Eivør decided to create almost entirely new tracks. Fans of the show will no doubt recognize the main themes, but the album also contains material that has never before been heard in any of the three seasons.

“Working together again with this approach has been a wonderful and creative experience, and we feel that our understanding of each other as writers and artists has grown further,” says John Lunn and Eivør. “It’s been a great honour and pleasure making this record, and we hope we’ve given you, the listener, something you can enjoy in its own right, while remaining true to the spirit of The Last Kingdom.”

MVD Entertainment Group: "Gas Food Lodging" [1992]


THEY'RE SISTERS. BUT IT WILL TAKE A MIRACLE TO MAKE THEM A FAMILY. Adapted from the novel Don't Look and It Won't Hurt by Richard Peck, Allison Anders (Grace of My Heart) whipped up a storm at the 42nd Berlin International Film Festival with her masterfully crafted tale of a young woman trying to find love while struggling to bring up her two daughters. Abandoned by her husband, Nora (Brooke Adams, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Stuff) waitresses to keep her head above water while raising two teenagers in a small New Mexico town trailer park. 

Beautiful and rebellious, Trudi (Ione Skye, Wayne's World, Zodiac) quits school to work alongside her mother, while her sister Shade (Fairuza Balk, The Craft, American History X) whittles away her time watching old movie matinees. Their life is turned on its head when Trudi finds that she has fallen pregnant after a string of promiscuous relationships and the girls' absent father returns with hopes of mending the relationships he broke when he left. A wonderfully engaging story of the woes of teenagers reaching adulthood, Gas Food Lodging is a distinctly American portrayal of a mother trying to raise two wayward teens with growing pains, who are learning about love, life and each other. This director-approved restoration finally affords this 90s modern classic the home video treatment it rightly deserves.

Silva Screen Records: "CLASS" Music by Blair Mowat


Composer Blair Mowat’s distinctive soundtrack to BBC’s third Doctor Who spin-off, created and written by Patrick Ness.

Featuring a great young cast, Class tells the story of students and staff at Coal Hill Academy, who save London from alien threats; Whovian space monsters are set against teenage inner demons. Tackling adult themes, violence is more graphic then in Doctor Who, the body count rises as the season progresses and there are more adult themes and material.

In Class, Blair’s soundtrack perfectly underpins this Doctor Who off-shoot Universe. The music feels like a character in its own right and provides stylistic consistency.

Blair Mowat is a prolific composer of scores for film, theatre and television, with well over a hundred credits including award-winning feature films, TV projects, ballets and musicals. BAFTA nominated, 4Talent short-listed, award-winning composer, Blair was in 2012 nominated for a Creative Scotland Award for 'Best New Talent' in the Scottish arts.

His work includes a retelling of Oscar Wilde's The Happy Prince for Sky Arts narrated by Stephen Fry, a ballet for The English National Ballet and the award-winning feature film Frequencies for which Blair created a musical world set in a parallel universe using rare instruments made from rock, glass and metal. Other television work includes music for the BBC’s flagship documentary strand Horizon.

Film credits include 7-Welcome to London, a British Bollywood thriller; Electric Man, which earned him a BAFTA nomination; and Magpie, by the internationally acclaimed director Marc Price. More recently, Andrew Carnegie: Rags to Riches, Power to Peace saw Blair Mowat return to his Scottish roots providing a musical score to the story of Andrew Carnegie's entrepreneurial and philanthropic life.

Music.Film Recordings: "A PRIVATE WAR" Music by H. Scott Salinas


Iconic singer, songwriter, and human rights activist Annie Lennox has written and recorded a song for the film A Private War which will appear on the original soundtrack to be released digitally by Music. Film Recordings November 2 and on CD November 9. Titled “Requiem For A Private War,” Lennox produced the song with composer H. Scott Salinas (Just Friends, Edison), who also provided the original film score. For the Academy Award, Grammy and Golden Globe Award-winner, contributing to a film about the slain journalist Marie Colvin was a labour of love, as the two were connected by Lennox’s organization The Circle which works to empower women around the globe as they challenge injustice and inequality. A magnificent ode to Colvin, the song is both haunting and powerful, as Lennox forcefully conveys the loss in her tragic passing. The film directed by Matthew Heineman (City of Ghosts, Cartel Land), and starring Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Tom Holland and Stanley Tucci will be released in theatres November 2 courtesy of Aviron Pictures.

Celebrated war correspondent Marie Colvin is a woman who is as comfortable downing martinis with high society's elite as she is brazenly staring down warlords and fleeing from gunfire. Driven by an enduring desire to bear witness and give voice to the voiceless, Colvin charges into danger, constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado.

Says Lennox in Deadline: “It was a privilege and honor to be asked to write and record a special song for A Private War, which not only commemorates the exceptional courage and dedication of war correspondent, Marie Colvin, but, from a human rights perspective, also highlights the importance of ‘from the ground’ media coverage, in war torn situations around the world.”

H. SCOTT SALINAS: Award-winning composer, H. Scott Salinas has contributed towards an impressive variety of notable projects including the Academy Award nominated documentary film The Square, HBO and Aaron Sorkin's smash hit "The Newsroom", NBC's spy thriller "Allegiance", and the wildly popular "Spider-Man 3: The Video Game".

After graduating from Princeton University, where he studied classical and jazz music, Scott continued his training at Berklee College of Music with a concentration in scoring for picture. In 2002, Scott became the youngest Grand Prize recipient of the Turner Classic Movies Young Film Composers Competition, and has since composed songs and original scores for dozens of feature films, video games, commercials, and high-profile television shows. Along with accolades such as the prestigious Cannes Lion and Clio awards, Scott's accomplishments have earned him esteem and recognition as a highly versatile yet specialized talent.

From composing the brooding hybrid orchestral score to the Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Noah) produced "Zipper", to his original song "Jamie Smiles" written for the cult comedy classic "Just Friends" (Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris), to acting as the instrumental mouthpiece behind the Old Spice whistle, Scott's ability to create a meaningful impact for a wide spectrum is showcased through his work.
