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 REINCARNATION OF PETER PROUD" music by Jerry Goldsmith


Intrada announces the premiere release of Jerry Goldsmith's score for the 1975 thriller The Reincarnation of Peter Proud, one of the last and most sought after Goldsmith scores never previously released. The quest to find the music elements for this release was fraught with frustration and challenge, but ultimately netted discoveries that facilitated this release. The score itself revolves around a moody, elegiac, long-line melody, first played by chamber-sized orchestra and piano, with solo flute over the film’s opening flashback scene of Jeff Curtis swimming in a lake at night only to encounter—and be killed by—his, wife, Marcia.   Goldsmith combined his symphonic palette with a substantial array of electronics, laying the groundwork for his style in the following year's for Logan's Run. As Jeff Bond writes in his notes, "It’s a score that...seems to bubble up out of the subconscious like a half-remembered dream, gradually sharpening its focus from echoplexed flutes and synthesizers to hard-edged, acoustic orchestral writing as the movie moves from Peter’s world of memories and dreams into an ugly, inevitable reality."

The first half of the score (through “Home at Last”) is mastered from a DAT copy of the original ½“ 3-channel stereo session mixes made by Armin Steiner and copied down to ¼“ tape at some point. The second half of the score was also taken from a DAT, this time transferred from mono tape sources at about the same time as the stereo mixes. To reduce the contrast between the stereo and mono tracks, Intrada mastered the latter with a judicious amount of state-of-the-art Altiverb to add a tiny amount of stereo “ambience.”

In the film, sports-coat-wearing professor Peter Proud (Michael Sarrazin) leaves behind his increasingly frustrated girlfriend (Cornelia Sharpe) while tracing his reincarnation dream imagery to Massachusetts, eventually tracking down widowed Marcia Curtis (Margot Kidder) and her attractive daughter, Ann (Jennifer O’Neill). As Peter ingratiates himself with and then seduces Ann Curtis, Marcia—who killed her philandering husband Jeff (Tony Stephano) in 1946—is overcome with the suspicion that Peter is somehow connected to Jeff Curtis, and finds the combination of bitter hatred, jealousy and lust that drove her to kill her husband boiling up again.

Intrada: "HIDER IN THE HOUSE" music by Christopher Young


Intrada presents a new edition from a composer renowned for his work in thrillers and horror – Christopher Young's 1989 Hider in the House. The film revolves around the unbalanced antagonist Tom Sykes (Gary Busey). Driven to experience the idyllic home life he was denied as a child, Sykes ensconces himself in a hidden room in the attic of a new house. At first, his activities are relatively benign: he spies, listens in on private conversations, and, when the family is out, uses the house as if it were his own. But the threat of exposure leads him to acts of increasing violence, culminating in murder.   Young’s juxtaposition of alienation and empathy in the score for Hider manages to humanize Busey’s mentally disintegrating stalker without minimizing the growing terror of his presence.

As John Takis writes in his notes:
"The tension is encapsulated in the lengthy suite—essentially a character study—that Young created to open his album program: “The Hider” begins with the film’s main title, a subdued, wordless treble chorus that evokes a distinctly religious feel. Slowly, orchestral dissonance intrudes and overwhelms the chorus—the strangling of innocence given musical shape. The mood grows dreamlike, awash with spectral, cavernous textures and eerie vocalize. Eventually, the score’s most prominent motif appears: three rising, crystalline notes that repeat and repeat with the quality of an aborted lullaby. Lost innocence is compounded with arrested development and obsession. Incrementally, the music becomes more tonal. Sorrowing strings drift into a kind of processional, suggesting a broken soul, wandering and without purpose. As the suite continues, the music wafts between melancholy atmosphere and passages of horrific tension and suspense; an indication that sadness and tragedy have birthed something violent and altogether disturbing."

For this reissue, Intrada has remastered the original CD program released in 1990 and commissioned new notes from John Takis.  While the score garnered little attention back in its day and the film seems long forgotten, the score remains a testament to Christopher Young's artistry. Intrada presents this reissue to showcase Young's brilliant work especially in a genre so suited to freeing him to reach the full power of his creativity.

WaterTower Music: "Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle" Music by Nitin Sawhney


WaterTower Music is pleased to announce today’s release of the original motion picture soundtrack for Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, the reinvention of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved masterpiece by acclaimed actor and director Andy Serkis, in which a boy torn between two worlds accepts his destiny and becomes a legend. Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle will see a limited theatrical release from Nov. 29 in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and London, and will then be available globally on December 7, only on Netflix, and will have an expanded theatrical release in additional theaters in the U.S. and UK.

The film was scored by British composer, producer, album artist, club DJ, songwriter, broadcaster, multi-instrumentalist, orchestrator and cultural tastemaker Nitin Sawhney, who is recognized as one of the most distinctive and versatile musical voices around today, achieving an international reputation across every possible creative medium. Sawhney also wrote the original song “Changes” which appears in the film and on the soundtrack and is performed by singer / songwriter Kara Marni.

Nitin Sawhney discusses working on the film: “The challenge of creating a fresh musical vocabulary and theme that would entice us into Mowgli’s universe was irresistible. That Andy Serkis was directing made it an unforgettable experience in the waiting. Andy is nothing short of a genius. The stunning film, of stellar performances and endlessly epic scenes, scored itself.”

The director further elaborated on the collaboration. “As I was trying to search for (Mowgli’s) tone, its heart, its pulse and rhythm, I knew one thing in my heart. That I wanted my friend Nitin Sawhney, one of our generation’s greatest polymaths, an extraordinary voice in world music, to create the score for what was to hopefully become a visceral and immersive adaptation of Kipling’s work,” explains Serkis. “I knew that he would completely understand and empathize with Mowgli’s journey as an outsider who is trying to work out his place in two changing worlds. Being of Indian descent, yet having grown up in Britain, Nitin was perfectly in tune with the movie’s themes. We began to talk excitedly about creating an aural landscape that would bring jungle sounds and music together, weaving themes that spoke of a taught yearning soul, combined with a mythical journey towards destiny. And then, Nitin sent me Mowgli’s theme... it was one of the most beautifully haunting, uplifting and moving pieces of music I had ever heard, and it marked a huge turning point, an energy that brought the film to life. Nitin and his team of magicians had created its musical soul.”

Nitin Sawhney, amongst a multitude of international awards, holds six honorary doctorates and two fellowships from British universities and was awarded the Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017. It was presented to him by his friend and collaborator Andy Serkis, for whom Sawhney also scored the true story romantic drama “Breathe” that same year.

The Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle soundtrack is now available for streaming and for purchase digitally. A CD configuration will be available February 15, 2019.

MovieScore Media: "MAKE US DREAM" Music by Roger Goula


MovieScore Media’s latest soundtrack release continues the label’s rich tradition of releasing inspiring sports documentary scores, this time with a focus on Liverpool FC legend Steven Gerrard. Directed by Sam Blair, the film takes its title from the book that chronicles the club’s legendary 2013/14 season with a focus on Gerrard, one of the best midfielders of his generation and captain of the English national football team. Featuring original interviews with both family members and team mates, the filmmakers had unprecedented access into chronicling Gerrard’ mercurial career. Make Us Dream was released in the United Kingdom and Ireland on November 15.

“I knew the music for this film had to portray his status carrying big triumph themes, but with a twist to embrace all the nuances that belong to the character” explains Roger Goula about his approach. “Sam Blair and I agreed that we wanted to work with both acoustic and electric guitars as the core instruments of the soundtrack to reference the Liverpool musical traditions with an amalgamation of pop/rock/folk instruments and a more classic cinematic strings section. For cues about Steven Gerrard’s biggest challenges (“The Real Game”) experiment with rough electric guitars reversed loops as well as bass drum ‘ostinatos' played through tape delays and a percussive use of the string orchestra to capture the player’s thoughts and feelings of responsibility.”

Roger Goula’s feature film debut Shock Head Soul (2011) by BAFTA-winning director Simon Pummell was released by MovieScore Media. Since then Roger has written a number of feature films, documentaries and series. His recent documentary scores include the BAFTA-nominated The Hard Stop, BIFA-Winner Next Goal Wins and BIFA-Nominated Versus: The Life And Films Of Ken Loach. His non-documentary works include the ITV/Netflix flagship series The Frankenstein Chronicles and the last ever two episodes of the legendary BBC series Inspector George Gently. His debut album Overview Effect was released in 2016

The soundtrack has a digital release date of  November 23, 2018.  On the link below, you can view a trailer featuring some of the score: [MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE - CLICK HERE]

Varese Sarabande: "DAVE GRUSIN: PREMIERE COLLECTION" [3-CD SET]


It’s no secret that we are huge fans of Dave Grusin at Varèse Sarabande! We are excited to be releasing four previously unreleased treasures from the Sony Pictures vaults. For a limited time purchase a 3-CD bundle featuring four Dave Grusin scores …AND JUSTICE FOR ALL, ABSENCE OF MALICE and MURDER BY DEATH coupled with score from THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, as a bonus. All three discs are available as a bundle for a special price before they are released for sale separately on January 4th. This is a great deal for Dave Grusin completists!

The 1979 courtroom drama, …AND JUSTICE FOR ALL is best remembered for the brilliant line Al Pacino shouts out in court, “You’re out of order! You’re out order! The whole trial is out of order!” The movie went on to great critical and box office success and was nominated for two Academy Awards. The score is pure Dave Grusin - funky, jazzy and melodic. The score was transferred from master sources from the Sony Pictures vaults. The CD contains the Mono film version of the soundtrack as well as the stereo remix along with bonus score tracks not used in the film.

ABSENCE OF MALICE, the 1981 drama, stars Paul Newman, Sally Field and Melinda Dillon. Newman, Dillon and writers Kurt Luedtke and David Rasyfel were all nominated for Oscars. This movie was one of numerous collaborations between Dave Grusin and director Sydney Pollack.

The 1976 film, MURDER BY DEATH, is among the most requested of Grusin’s unreleased scores by fans. The satirical murder mystery was directed by Robert Moore and features an all-star cast of Eileen Brennan, Truman Capote, James Coco, Peter Falk, Sir Alec Guinness, David Niven, Peter Sellers, Maggie Smith and Nancy Walker. The score is a satire of murder mysteries and it rises to the task with a wonderful and melodic main title. The sources provided by Sony are in mono but sound superb. This is one of those scores you will be humming after listening to it.

As a bonus we have added the music from the 1971 Robert Mulligan film, THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. The movie stars Michael Sarrazin, Barbara Hershey and E.G. Marshall. The plot is about a young college student who is sent to prison for killing a pedestrian with his car. When the opportunity presents itself, he escapes and is subsequently on the run with his girlfriend. On top of the maestro’s score, we have included the Randy Newman main/end title credit song, “Let Me Go,” which is also used in variations during key moments in the film.

Transferred from master sources uncovered in Sony Pictures vaults, these four scores represent the very best of Dave Grusin. The Dave Grusin Premiere Collection and other soundtrack masterpieces are available now at Varèse Sarabande. [www.varesesarabande.com]

When Sir William is found murdered in the library, everyone - and their servants - becomes a suspect. Also starring Charles Dance, Michael Gambon, Richard E. Grant, Helen Mirren, Clive Owen, Maggie Smith, Emily Watson and many more, Altman produced another masterpiece deserving to be ranked alongside Nashville and Short Cuts as one his finest forays into ensemble drama.

MVD Entertainment Group: "The Serpent's Egg" [1977]


HOW DO YOU MEASURE YOUR OWN SANITY IN A WORLD GONE MAD? In 1977, legendary Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman (The Seventh Seal, Persona) teamed up with the equally legendary Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis (La strada, Danger: Diabolik) for what would be the director's one and only Hollywood feature. Berlin, 1923. Out-of-work circus performer Abel Rosenberg (David Carradine, Bound in Glory, Kill Bill) is living in poverty. When his brother commits suicide, he moves into the apartment of his cabaret singer sister-in-law (Liv Ullmann, The Emigrants, Scenes from a Marriage), but the pair soon attract the attentions of both the police and a professor with a terrifying area of research when they start to make enquiries about his mysterious death. One of Bergman's darkest - and most unlikely - films, The Serpent's Egg is a hypnotic, Kafkaesque tale of paranoia in a poisoned city.
