hi all,
this is my first post to this most excellent board, and many thanks for it, btw.
well, i was wondering what other people, including Steve, thought about composing for, or the pairing of his music with film, and or doc tv? or maybe he already has had some music in film? (I think Jerry did some work with/for F.F. Coppola, as did Bobby Vega on a Vietnam documentary.)

personally, i'd love to hear Ice Cream or a Long Form in a non-verbal scene, to set a scene, transition, create a mood, or in a long, panning exterior, atmosphere shot, etc. or Life of the Party or Tongue n' Groove in an underwater/aquatic documentary. (i know somebody said they actually heard some SKB on the Weather Channel's playlist....which means my Mom has enjoyed SKB w/o even realizing it!) Wink

i'm also curious, Steve, if there are any directors, shows, or subjects that you have ever considered wanting to compose for, or that you'd consider a good fit for your songs? and, is there any music, whether popular or not, in film that you were particularly impressed with, that you thought worked particularly well?

just something i've been thinking about,
Dana


ps--i.e., John Williams who scored nearly all, if not all, of Speilberg's films. AAmazing....the 5 main notes of Close Encounters alone are unforgettable, not to mention Jaws. his is an interesting career--totally dedicated to music, also from a very young age.
and then there's Tarantino, & Scorsese's use of music has always been keen, with music placement always being a priority for him in filmmaking.

I would think Steve's styling would fit more in the styling of a Bill Frisell (Finding Forrester)/Ry Cooder (Man on the Train) mood than say something as extensive as John Williams.

I know Jerry did Zebriskie Point, along w/ Pink Floyd. Jerry's stuff on that was in a similar styling, but very very rough.

yes, i agree....
John Williams just came to mind as I'd recently watched the Kennedy Center thing where he was honored, and I had no idea the same guy had done all Spielberg's music. (he's Oscar-nominated again, of course, for The Terminal)

Frizell and Cooder's stuff in those films are great examples.

also, Daniel Lanois in/for Million Dollar Hotel (Wim Wenders) (and Frizell also contributed to this), Slingblade (Thornton), Last of the Mohicans (Mann), and Until the End of the World (Wenders)......Lanois is tremendous. and Petra Hayden in Hurly Burly. anybody else have any favorite soundtrack music in similar stylings, they'd recommend?

i wonder if Lindley has done soundtrack/score work? i'd have to think so. speaking of whom, off to hear Kaki King who toured w/ him last year at an Ameoba instore now....would love to see her open for SKB sometime,

Dana

First post I've seen on this board that I think is totally off topic.

jeez... and here i really thought it did fit in w/ the "writing & composing" category. oh, woe is me. Crying or Very sad nothing like being wrong, wrong again---- sorry, but didn't see it as being that far out...guess writing and composing for film is NOT in the cards.

ps--anyhow, Mr. Cornett, thanks for the Cooder suggestion...his film Anthology (w/ Lindley) is fabulous.

Dana,
I have done some music for film with Pete Sears and I think there have been bits used along the way for other things, not exactly sure what. The problem I have with the issue of the use of my music for film, is that I'm not the person that's using my music for film. Some film maker is. The information is just kind of going in the wrong direction. It's speculative and ultimately not my call how any of my work is used after it's recorded. My son John Morgan is always joking about the opening chords of Ice Cream in a Verizon commercial. Da da de da da... Can you hear me now? See what I mean? It's just not up to me.

I think my role here should be specifically technically informative with the music and the gear and should be including my opinion only when it's based on my own direct experience with either the music or gear. Your post had me sprirallng off into areas that I have no connection to or ability to influence.

I appreciate your contribution to the list, but please ask me what my speaker cabinets are made of, or something like that, that I can actually answer.

Peace,
Kimock

I found his post to be quite on target for this section, which describes specific aspects of your performance and/or recording. "Have you considered doing" and/or "have you done" are about as direct as you can possibly get and can only be answered by you.

Kudos to the NYGuitarFest for brainstorming and bringing together the old silent film improv score performances tonight w/ Justin (aka Bon Iver), then Steve. awesome idea.
but must say...kinda sucks I can't hear/see it. any video (preferably) or audiotape? Golly, gee, i hope there's SOME recording of this.

Soooooo,
"paging Mr. Kimock, pick up nearest white courtesy phone"...
Anybody go?
after all, inquiring minds would love to hear how it went, or rather how cool this eve surely was, please. Smile

It went great, was really fun, well received etc. Really nice hang with all the musicians, super cool, mellow, kind folks.
I think somebody got some video, at least that's what one of the venue crew told me, but I don't yet know who or for whom.
If I get a copy I'll let you know.

I'm also about to start working on the soundtrack for a movie about a beer bottle. Seriously. Beer bottle . . .

I'm trying to recall years ago I saw a film that had a band scene in Golden Gate Park...and Steve was playing guitar. Was it the film called '68 starring Neil Young?
