POP SHOW PODCAST | © 2016 AssignmentX

Welcome back to another episode of the POP SHOW PODCAST starring Anthony C. Ferrante. While at first we thought Anthony would not join us, he took some time off of his busy schedule to join Sonia Mansfield (@TheSoniaShow), Christopher Smith (@JettJergens) and myself (@PeterBrownAX) to talk about all things pop culture. This week we discuss possible problems facing WONDER WOMAN already and that maybe James Cameron might be returning to the TERMINATOR franchise to hopefully bring it back to life. We also discuss a new Pixar video that shows that maybe all of the films are in the same universe, […]Read On »

Michael Wandmacher scores Selene’s fight in the UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS – Interview

UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS soundtrack | ©2017 Lakeshore Records

Masked maniacs, ferocious fish, unhinged vigilantes and a wheelman from hell. Reading a list of Michael Wandmacher’s prolific credits feels like a particularly crazed membership drive for The Suicide Squad, a rogue’s gallery that he’s taken out for a spin with a distinctively energetic ability for pounding action where a metal attitude often hits the pedal. Starting his career in the rhythmic company of Jackie Chan with the English version scores for ARMOR OF GOD, TWIN DRAGONS and ONCE A COP. Wandmacher has brought his passion to CRY_ WOLF, THE KILLING FLOOR, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, PIRANHA 3-D, THE LAST EXORCISM:PART II  and PUNISHER: WAR […]Read On »

Marcelo Zarvos scores for the FENCES – Interview

FENCES | ©2016 Paramount Pictures

A distinctive, and prolific voice in Hollywood since arriving from his native Brazil, Marcelo Zarvos has created any number of musically explosive dramatic incidents – among them CELL‘s zombie-making phone calls, the murderous bad cop behavior of BROOKLYN’S FINEST and BEASTLY‘s groovily hip take on a fairy tale as old as time. A frequent collaborator with director Barry Levinson from the found footage parasitic horrors of THE BAY to PHIL SPECTOR‘s record producer gone mad, as well as a go-to composer for Showtime series like RAY DONAVAN, THE C WORD and THE AFFAIR. Marcelo Zarvos’ eclectic resume is no busier than when dealing with relationships in all of their […]Read On »

Composer Mica Levi goes under the emotional skin of JACKIE – Interview

JACKIE soundtrack | ©2016 Milan Records

As an invigorating wave of “modern classical” scores like INDIGNATION, MOONLIGHT and ARRIVAL now take film music in uniquely interesting directions, the utterly bizarre and hypnotic originality of 2013’s UNDER THE SKIN was the equivalent of an alien landing in arthouse land to broadcast its musical language. Weirdly pitched strings, sound masses and unearthly metallic samples created the equivalent of a seductive hive mind, its heartbeat eerily slithering with just enough melody to keep the listener from Kafka-esque madness. UNDER THE SKIN‘s sonic shock of the new was created by the kind of avant-garde composer who could only come from nowhere. However, […]Read On »

Dorking Out Show | © 2016 Chris Smith/Sonia Mansfield

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s podcast, we talk about Sunday night’s Golden Globe nominations. LA LA LAND won all the awards, but Meryl Streep won the night. We’re going to talk about our favorite and least favorite moments of the show, and share how the winners affect our Oscar picks, because we take our Oscar predictions VERY SERIOUSLY. Then Smith talks about the ridiculous exercise of giving awards to artistic achievements as though they were trophies at the end of a baseball season. You can’t score LA LA LAND or MANCHESTER BY THE SEA like box scores. He’s got some interesting […]Read On »
