To Infinity and Beyond

My goal with this site has been to educate, entertain, and always champion film composers and their music. Since I started this site, I have been exposed to the work of numerous composers that I probably would not have found without this online outlet. Record labels and publicists have sent me materials out of the blue and some composers have contacted me on their own, which has been particularly gratifying.

As part of the growth of this site for the coming year, I am instituting a series of DISCOVERIES” posts that will highlight the works of lesser-known composers from the U.S. and abroad. In some cases, the names might be new to many of you. And in probably more instances than I care to admit, they’ll be new only to me. (I admit as I hang my head in shame.)

Just because a film composer isn’t (or wasn’t) part of Hollywood’s so-called “A-list” doesn’t mean that there aren’t more than a few stars to be found in this galaxy. I look forward to sharing these discoveries from yesterday, today, and beyond.

If you’re a composer and would like to share your work, please contact me through the Contact link above or jim@filmscoreclicktrack.com.

  1. This is a fantastic idea, Jim! The most valuable part of this blog for me* has been the discovery of new composers and new scores. I have purchased (and subsequently fallen in love) with so many great scores simply because I read about them and heard snippets of them here. Keep up the great work, and I look forward to discovering sonic supernovas along with you!

    *next to becoming your friend, of course!

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Tim, professionally and personally. I feel the same. This blog has allowed me the opportunity to discover so many new composers and scores that I might not have otherwise. But most importantly, it has offered me the opportunity to connect and become friends with great people like you.

      “Sonic supernovas”…very good. :)

  2. This is such a unique and great idea Jim. I am constantly looking for those gems that may be so far under the radar that nobody would give them a chance to be heard, outside the normal channels. Being a composer myself, I really feel like what you are doing, this entire website, is exactly what the film score community and beyond(no pun intended) need. As I have said to you before, thank you for your dedication to the small but rich universe to which you, I, and every other fan belong to.

    1. Billy, sorry for the delay in responding to your comment. Was swamped with FSMO stuff the last few days. Thanks so much for your kind words on the website. What I’ve tried to do, and continue to try to do, is bring up scores that span the entire breadth of the art form, from the earliest days to films opening this week. Not only will it hopefully provide you and my other readers with memories of favorite film music moments, but you never know when you come across an undiscovered gem. So I’m glad to see that my little plan is working. ;) Thanks again for the support and the kind words. They’re very much appreciated.
