Power of music

I know this is a silly post, but hey. I was about to start a video critique for my online workshop and as I was firing up the animator's sequence the best thing ever happened. I pretty much always listen to music and today I was listening to Die Hard 2: Die Harder - Deluxe Edition 2 Disc Set (I had to write that). And for some heavenly reason, the music and the sequence synced up perfectly! Of course I had to start the critique with that fact and here's the excerpt:

Makes it all already awesome.

Paperman - Score



I quite liked the score to Paperman and immediately got it. You can head over to iTunes or Amazon to do the same. Would be cool to get a compilation of Pixar shorts music too.

Movies on the Radio - Music for Pixar

Not animation per se, but I love movie scores and if you do as well, I'd recommend checking out the "Movies on the Radio - Music for Pixar". It's a great collection, with cues from "Up", "Toy Story 1-3", "The Incredibles", etc.

Thanks Jonathan Korzen for the tip!

... WQXR's "Movies on the Radio," hosted by David Garland. This show featured the music of Pixar as a tribute to the life and accomplishments of Steve Jobs.

Pixar Animation Studio's computer-animated films provide great story-telling, with memorable characters, playfully astonishing visuals, and compelling music. For their feature films, Pixar has used three talented composers: Randy Newman, Thomas Newman, and Michael Giacchino.

Garland presented music for such Pixar films as "Toy Story," "Up," "WALL-E," "Ratatouille," "Finding Nemo," and others, while reflecting on the ability to Pixar's music to communicate clever motifs and powerful emotions. Saturday’s program included Randy Newman’s “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” (Toy Story) and Michael Giacchino’s “Seizing the Spirit of Adventure” (Up).
