  • Tech Talk From The Producer…

    We are always looking for opportunities to work with James Horner, certainly one of the most talented and fascinating composers ever to come from Hollywood. Our support of his music has spanned nearly two decades. We have been honored to work with some of his important higher profile film scores and had hoped for some time to introduce this unusual and intimate score for Extreme Close-Up to fans, spotlighting a very personal and interior side to the composer… but scoring session elements proved to be very elusive.

    With a stroke of luck—and the generous help of the MGM Music staff—we were able to finally locate masters which had been retained by the home video division some years ago. Happily, these proved to be not only complete, but first generation ¼” two-track stereo mixes of every cue, even though the TV film was produced for mono broadcasts only. As such, we have assembled the entire CD from these masters, presenting for the first time ever one of the composer’s most sensitive and transparent film scores of an amazingly successful career. Sit back and reflect with us.
