    Nice! A unique concert. punk

    Held on October 17th, the World Soundtrack Awards will welcome Carter Burwell, one of the most brilliant film composers of his generation, known for his compelling scores including Being John Malkovich, In Bruges, Where The Wild Things Are, Twilight and his unique collaborations with some of the world’s most respected filmmakers such as the Coen Brothers (Fargo, True Grit, Miller’s Crossing, No Country for Old Men) and Todd Haynes (Carol, Wonderstruck, Mildred Pierce, Velvet Goldmine).

    Film Fest Gent also welcomes Nicholas Britell, Academy Award-nominated composer, pianist and producer. Last year during the World Soundtrack Awards, the American composer won the ‘Discovery of the Year’ award for Barry Jenkins’ Oscar-winning film Moonlight. In 2015, Britell wrote the score for Adam Mc Kay’s Oscar-nominated film The Big Short and Natalie Portman’s directorial debut feature film A Tale of Love and Darkness.

    I knew about Burwell's involvement about a month ago.

    Alas, neither of these guests are particularly interesting to me (Burwell is very on/off). That, plus the weekday thing, makes it prohibitive yet again. Last time was 2015, so it's already 3 years ago.

    BUT....I'm considering replacing the WSA with attending the summer festival in Ghent. No worries about getting composer interviews etc.; just enjoying the city and beers all day long!
    I am extremely serious.

    You have to contact me for that. The first weekend I'll be at a the Cactus music festival in Bruges (with Nils Frahm and lots of Belgian artists too). Belgium is a paradise for summer festivals. Every town has its own.

    Oooh. It has Mogwai and Goldfrapp too! Looks good. Sunday is apparently the day to be there.

    I really want to go, but now that RyanAir no longer is operational in Norway, flights to Brussels are expensive.
    I am extremely serious.

    Man, I am so desperate to go back to Ghent. Both times I've been (2012 and 2016) were amazing trips; catching up with some of you guys in person, drinking lots of beer, and meeting high-profile composers in circumstances I simply cannot imagine could occur at any other event.

    Probably won't be this year but it's always on my radar. smile

    Even to this day I get blurry memories appearing in my mind of things that may or may not have happened on these trips. The other day, for instance, I recalled a moment where I was giving Daniel Pemberton advice on how to pull a girl he had his eye on at the after-party. I think my advice was: “Just recreate the theme to Peep Show with your mouth and you’re in mate.”

    I am looking into that one. Still totally dislike the fact that is on a weekday. In the weekend it would have been a nobrainer for me.

    Any updates about the guests? Who will be present apart from Philippe Sarde, Carter Burwell, Nicholas Britell and I think (but not sure) Laurent Eyquem?
    Anyone for the TV Awards is coming?

    That would be Laurent Eyquem (since you had the first and last names in order for the others, I thought you should have it for Laurent too). smile

    I have no idea who else is coming (as with Caliburn, I'm not coming this year, so I haven't investigated much). Maybe Bregt knows?

    I just realized I haven't been to the WSA since 2015. Time flies!

    I have no idea who else is coming Dennis. I'm not in the loop anymore.

    But Kaat and I bought a ticket yesterday, finally. It will be my 17th WSA and it would be sad to miss one out, especially since Burwell is usually worth to listen to, although he tends to to low key scores. My only fear is that the concert will be not varied enough.

    As for the 2001 and space music concert the day after, that'll be a very last minute decision. smile

    In the mean time, the film festival of Gent started a few days ago, with GIRL as the opening movie. Lots of very positive comments and reviews on that film, directed by a very young director from Gent, Lukas Dhont. The movie is our Oscar candidate.

    I would be interested in attending the whole (or part of) the film festival one day, rather than just the WSA. I chatted a bit with Patrick Duynslaegher on the bus from Nice to Cannes last year (or perhaps it was this year?). You always seem to get good films and directors.
    I am extremely serious.
  2. We will not be coming to the WSA's but instead we booked our seats for the 2001 concert the day after. It was one or the other, and even though I like Burwell the prospect of hearing Solo live was the icing on the cake for me. So hoping for a great time

    My guess is that Solo will only be Lando's Closet. It is the only one I have heard this year from that movie.

    It was Mine Mission Suite, same track as on the album but with an extra portion at the end. punk

    The Rocketeer End Credits was fabulous, a reminder of this great score, one of my favourites of Horner. Other highlights were the opening of 2001: A Space Odyssey and the scene in space where "An der schönen blauen Donau" shines, followed by Alex North's piece for the same scene. Other selections from Black Hole, Star Trek, Alien, Star Wars Main Theme, ... Klendathu Drop must have been one of the louder tracks but I think the tempo was a bit slow.

    All in all a very good and fun concert.
