The Music of Lost

Re: [Up-Tight] Re: What are your favourite cinematic sounds?
[Colin Frangos posted this to Telstar's Up-Tight group
I found it interesting and informative.]

While it's clearly gauche to even mention TV amongst the great movie composers, but the work that Michael Giacchino is doing composing for Lost is pretty interesting. If you're skeptical, hear me out.

First and foremost, he's using a small orchestra, something that's rarely done, even for movies. This includes a harp, 4 trombones and multiple percussionists, who play all sorts of weird marimbas and metal things (an Angklung, bits of an airplane, a flapamba). Some of the musicians involved have been scoring film for 40+ years.

Second, he's got a keen interest in modern composers that he balances with classic film scoring strategies. He uses a lot of leitmotifs, but many of them involve abnormal and "extended" techniques (plucking the harp strings at the resonant box, scraping the bow behind the bridge of the cello, rolling a super ball along a cymbal). There are lots of cluster chords and non-traditional scales. I'm pretty sure one leitmotif was originally set up as a tone row, although it's developed a little from there.

Third, none of the above are cloying. It's possible to watch the show and not be saying to yourself, "Gee, that's a particularly bold passage on the Angklung." It adds and doesn't detract. It's a great soundtrack if you want to focus on it, but that involves pulling yourself away from the show.

A Q & A With Josh Holloway

The Interview in a bit lengthy, so I put it under Magic Button:

'Lost' Tops Your Must (Catch Up With on TV) List

Reader's PickLost (ABC)I know I have until January, but my wife and I just finished season 3 of Lost. We were going to hold out and watch season 4 on DVD in December but may just watch it crammed together at the computer desk on Hulu. Too many questions need answering! —Greg

I need to catch up on season 3 of Lost. After the show got all sympathetic to the Others, I got really mad and promised to stop watching. But how can I really stop watching Lost? I met my wife because of that friggin' show! Anyway, it's Netflix time so I can catch up and figure out whether or not I feel like jumping back on the ''cliffhanger every week'' bandwagon...

EW's Ausiello Hints at Spoiler

If this turns out to be true, count me in with the many that will be squealing with glee. In a word, AWESOME!

From the DarkUFO Rumor Mill

These are rumors, mind you, and should be taken with a grain of salt until Dark can confirm them. None the less, because some of these have turned into gen-u-ine spoilage, I will place them behind the magic button.

Second Dharma Test E-Mail



I am pleased to announce the release of the second assessment in the Dharma Initiative's

Volunteer Recruitment Program.

This new test is a broad-spectrum knowledge analysis.

It is a multiple-choice test covering a range of topics.



Be prepared before embarking on this assessment - there will be NO SECOND CHANCES.

I would also like to encourage recruits to take the opportunity to earn extra "Dharma" points.

These points WILL contribute to your overall test results and the eventual position you will be assigned within the Dharma Initiative.

I trust you will find these new tasks sufficiently challenging and will embrace the opportunity to grow the Dharma Initiative.

I look forward to reviewing your results.

Hans Van EeghenHead of Recruiting
The Dharma Initiative

Latest from Ausiello

Not too earth-shattering, yet a little blurb from Ausiello in EW:

Question: I, for one, am psyched that Michelle Rodriguez is returning to Lost. But my question pertains to your scoop last week about the casting of Darlene and Jill, or Doc Jensen's theoretical analysis of your scoop. Was he suggesting what I think he was suggesting? -- Dawn
Ausiello: I don't know what you think he was suggesting. But I think he was suggesting that that the left-behinders got tossed back in time when Ben cranked the donkey wheel, and we're about to get a glimpse of the early Dharma days!

DarkUFO Theory: The Dharma Initiative and Reincarnation

Exclusive: 'Lost' Resurrects --------------

This blog seems to have the right idea

Toady here, I came across a very interesting blog with thought-provoking theories on Lost. It also shows quotes from throughout the series that seem to lead to something "bigger" than what we know. It's a worthwhile read.

TV Guide Interview: JJ Abrams on Fringe

TV Guide has an interview with JJ Abrams, where he discusses FRINGE, his love of airplanes, Mad Men, and the upcoming Star Trek movie.

Episode 5x01 - Set Video of Sayid and Hurley

Jorge "LOST" Garcia just before he

This month I'm featuring a show that I did with Jorge "LOST" Garcia just before he
became famous. It was the 30th episode of my live talk show "WHAT'S YOUR BEEF?".
I had seen Jorge on a Jack-in-the-Box commercial in L.A. and luckily, a kid in my ghetto apartment building in Koreatown knew how to get in touch with him.

Jorge was very gracious with me and we stay in touch to this day. So, here's a clip of that show-- just scroll down if you'd like to buy a copy.

Fall TV Preview: Fox

Fox hasn't had a hit show in quite sometime. Bones and Prison Break, both with varying degrees of success, are entering their seasons. fourthHouse is in season five. The O.C. came and went, leaving Fox with a teen void that they've seemingly willingly seceded to The CW. Even 24, the old Fox warhorse, is just that: old.
