Leonard Rosenman’s score for Fantastic Voyage (1966). This was the original version of Innerspace (1987).

"Total Recall RESCORED"

This is the second video of a series of RESCORED videos I’ll be making. 

I’m learning a lot by doing these; this one is written in strict dodecaphonic form and explores some electronic processing of orchestral instruments.

(It’s also one of my favourite scenes from one of my favourite movies!)

TURN IT UP And Enjoy!

****Hi-Fi Or Headphones Recommended****

Here is the music from ‘The Dark Knight RESCORED’ video I posted if anyone would like to listen to it without all the shooting and explosions!

This was so much fun to do! 

It’s a chase scene from The Dark Knight (2008) which—apart from a minimal cello part at the beginning—is totally free of music in the movie. 

It works amazingly well on-screen without music; it feels very rawand understated; but I took the opportunity to practice writing underscore for a pretty amazing chase scene while being able to retain all the original sound effects and dialogue. 

(If there had already been music for the scene I would have had to remove that which would remove all audio including sound effects and dialogue.)

This is the first of many RESCORES I have planned for the coming months so stay tuned!

More Lenny!

This is an excerpt from ‘Part 4 - The Delights & Dangers of Ambiguity’ from a series of Leonard Bernstein lectures at Harvard called ‘The Unanswered Question’ (1973) 

Check out the full lecture! There’s a really amazing analysis and performance of Wagner’s ‘Tristan and Isolde’ Prelude.

THE RITE OF LENNY! 

Leonard Bernstein takes no prisoners rehearsing the orchestra forIgor Stravinsky's 'The Rite Of Spring.' A great insight into the rehearsal process for this difficult piece. 

THE REHEARSAL STARTS AT 3.00. Before that there is lots of applause and a guy speaking German overdubbed in Spanish.
