|K C : I once heard the story about John Williams – how he went up to another composer and said “you want to listen to my new theme for Jaws?”. He then went to the piano and started pounding out those famous semitones in the bass – faster and louder. Brilliant!
I grew up with his themes – Star Wars, Superman, Indiana Jones….it's a different level altogether. I have to say that I really thought the score for Crash by Mark Isham was fantastic. For me, it always brought everything together and kept all those emotions wound up but never got in the way. I think that if he had done the music differently, it would have drastically affected the film as a whole. I think I mentioned it earlier; it takes much more effort to make a score like that – there is no leeway for error, if you understand what I mean. It was like the score was inhaling and exhaling in time with you. I liked it a lot.
