"A good film score is one that works in contrast with the images of the movie. The music says what the images can't say or what they didn't manage to convey."-(from Jarre's final interview last month).
Oscar-winning composer Maurice Jarre passed away last week at the age of 84 leaving a legacy of grand, sweeping themes to some of the greatest movies made. Hard to imagine how David Lean's "Lawrence of Arabia (1962), "Dr. Zhivago" (1965), "A Passage to India" (1984) and "Ryan's Daughter" (1970) would have turned out without Jarre's lush musical imagination. He contributed music to more than 150 movies of wide variety. A NY Times appreciation expressed Mr. Jarre well:"All I have to do is listen to how one score of his after another opens a forgotten door in my life. We sit in the movies, and though we hear the music of the films we’re watching, we do not seem to be listening to it. Only later do we realize that it has saturated us."

"When at last this little instrument appeared...the disappointment arising from its humble appearance was only partially relieved on finding that it was really able to talk." --James Maxwell, The Telephone (1878)

It's always good for me to mix things up every once in while and look at them from a different angle. Gets the idea juices going!
I was listening to my music library set to random on my laptop the other day and kept hearing songs by female singer-songwriters that I wanted to share for this week. Sometimes the random setting reminds me of stuff I haven't played in a while, or makes me hear a song in a new light because it's set between two others I wouldn't choose on my own. Lots of "Oh my goodness, I LOVE this song." moments sprinkled with, "Whoa, I didn't even remember I had this but I like it!"
Tune in to Lyrical Venus on Tuesday from 9-10 am and discover some new and old favorites for yourself!
