An Interview with God and Seed of Terror (Ian Honeyman)

I like Ian Honeyman’s music. There.. I said it! Seriously though, I think he’s an underrated and under-used composer. And to be honest, I’m a little surprised I like his music as much as I do. On paper it doesn’t necessarily seem like it’d tick all my boxes (and it doesn’t, that’s the thing), but there is passion, creativity and energy in his music that I find very appealing. You’d be better off not reading my review and just listen to some of his music!

Welcome to Marwen (Alan Silvestri)

As a fan of both Robert Zemeckis and Alan Silvestri, I am always terribly excited by the release of a new film and score by this creative duo. So how does their latest collaboration, Welcome to Marwen, fair? It’s a tricky film about a victim of a brutal attack who finds a unique therapeutic outlet to help him through his recovery process.

Altered States (Miguel d’Oliveira)

Michael Palin in North Korea – Interview with Composer Miguel d’Oliveira

Michael Palin in North Korea is the latest in a long – and fascinating – line of travelogues by Palin. In the UK, it aired on Channel 5 a few weeks ago; and if you haven’t watched it, it’s worth catching up on. Over two episodes, Palin offers an intriguing glimpse into that most secretive of countries: North Korea. He walks a very fine line between: what we’re allowed to see, what we’re not allowed to see, and what the presenter (subtly) implies. The music walks the same line. Synchrotones had the pleasure of talking to composer Miguel d’Oliveira about it.
