And if that doesn't get your attention there is a "BLACK FRIDAY" SPECIAL OFFER!!! (Personalized CD + Autographed Sheet Music)

For the first time a soundtrack label will offer a personalized CD booklet with your name on it! If you order before Tuesday November 28th at midnight (PST) you will receive an extra booklet personalized with your name on it! ALSO, 10 random customers who buy this CD before Tuesday November 28th at midnight will also receive a signed sheet music page from the composer.

With all the great releases our favorite labels are giving us this time of year, there is one thing missing ... a Christmas themed album full of sleigh bells, memorable themes and great old school film score writing that we all miss so very much. Edwin was asked to write a melodic score that tugs at the heart strings and was given an orchestra and not just any orchestra, The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Along with this great orchestra, Edwin also composed two new GORGEOUS and moving songs that were performed by the Illumni Men's Chorale in Seattle. Many will never have seen this film nor heard the score, that's fine. GO LISTEN TO THE AUDIO SAMPLES, trust us!
 
Act Now... like all specials, this one too will come to an end!

Howlin' Wolf Records Proudly Presents: "FINAL JUDGEMENT/TERROR WITHIN II" music by Terry Plumeri


Both scores are composed, orchestrated, and conducted by Terry Plumeri. A chamber orchestra and choir are used to create a Gothic, "brooding harmonic vocabulary" to match the psychological journey of FINAL JUDGEMENT. For THE TERROR WITHIN II, "dark and sometimes forceful accompaniment" match the extreme, post-nuclear war landscape. In the liner notes the composer reflects on the love theme for THE TERROR WITHIN II, proclaiming it as "one of my favorite love themes I have written for cinema."

Interview with the Film "DEVIL'S WHISPER" Composer Penka Kouneva


Jeremy [Six Strings]: First, thank you... always a pleasure!

Jeremy [Six Strings]: Please tell us more about the film "DEVIL'S WHISPER", how did you become involved and how you approached this project musically?

Penka Kouneva: Devil's Whisper is a psychological thriller about the 15-year old Alex who comes from a religious family and aspires to become a Catholic priest. One day he discovers a mysterious box, opens it and unleashes a demon bent on destroying him. On the surface Devil's Whisper is a supernatural horror film about demonic possession, but at its core it's a tale about repressed memories, childhood trauma and the cycle of abuse that affects so many children. I was recommended by two dear friends, Joe Kraemer and Mark Lanza. I have genuine passion for horror, fantasy, supernatural and SciFi stories and am naturally drawn and energized by these stories. Devil's Whisper  is a richly layered and beautifully produced story. It's blood-curdling when it needs to be, and riveting from the first frame to the last. The film tackles subjects like faith and religiosity, coming-of-age and adolescent characters in a tasteful and compassionate manner. I approached the project like a modern supernatural tale, with a subtle, mostly non-traditional score in the vein of The Conjuring. The main ingredients of the score are low pulsing throbbing synths, textural effects and a mournful motif for Alex's angst. Like most horror scores, the music needs to balance between the human drama (with more traditional, heart-felt thematic motifs) and the demonic forces (with scary and explosive synths and sound design textures).

Jeremy [Six Strings]: Did you get a certain level of musical freedoms for the film "DEVIL'S WHISPER" or did the director Adam Ripp have a specific direction?

Penka Kouneva: Adam Ripp was fantastic to work with. He presented to me an inspiring and cogent artistic vision - his completed film. He gave me clear directions on the ethos of the score and the palette he thought would be fitting. Prior to meeting him, I had been doing a lot of heavy orchestral scores on my recent games and CDs, so I jumped instantly at the opportunity to compose a non-orchestral, non-traditional score. Adam was the perfect collaborator and I so much enjoyed working with him. I also brought in my co-composing partner of 10 years, Christopher Lord because of his mastery with complicated synths and orchestral design. Chris made a great contribution to the demonic palette.


Jeremy [Six Strings]: With the film "DEVIL'S WHISPER", what do you hope the audience will take away from your music and will we see a physical/digital release?

Penka Kouneva: Devil's Whisper is a terrific genre film that leaves people with deep emotional experience and also with food for thought. The music is both emotional and very scary. My role is to support the storytelling and to create that emotional backdrop that will make the film a visceral and unforgettable experience. The DVD hit the stores October 3rd !! The digital release of the soundtrack is planned for November when the film becomes available on VOD. Check it out!

Jeremy [Six Strings]: Since we last talked you have found a world of composing success with your personal releases "The Woman Astronaut" [VS] and "A Warrior’s Odyssey" [HWR]... how do you feel about those releases and what they meant to you to have them in the world?

Penka Kouneva: My passion projects are the best, most personal music I've composed and I am grateful that I created them. The Woman Astronaut brought me a scoring job for the American Astronauts - a new $30M NASA exhibit titled "Heroes and Legends" permanently located at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. I have a new orchestral CD coming out in November on Varese Sarabande titled Rebirth of Id.

Jeremy [Six Strings]: Share some of the work you have done, who are some that you have worked with and something that you took away from those or felt inspired?

Penka Kouneva: This year I scored The Mummy: Prodigium Strike Virtual Reality game. It was a fun project battling zombies and providing the music signature for the Special forces. I'm super-excited about the possibilities of VR for storytelling, gaming, and beyond entertainment. What inspires me most is opportunities to create innovative scores where I combine various elements in a novel and fresh way. Devil's Whisper was most definitely such an opportunity. While I still am passionate about game scoring and have a few games out there (Cookie Jam 2, Chime Sharp, Chobolabs' Mayhem), I am also pleased that 2017 has brought me 3 more feature films to score - Paul Salamoff's Sci-Fi thriller Encounter, and two other drama features in progress.


Jeremy [Six Strings]: Outside of your talented writer/actor/producer/husband Daniel Schweiger [respect], where do you find your inspiration that sets you apart and different than other composers? Is there a certain music appreciation among other composers, I can imagine you interact with composers daily.

Penka Kouneva: Yes, Daniel still plays one soundtrack every morning, which is very inspiring and informative for me. 14 years together - that's over 5,000 soundtracks that he's played in the house. These days I'm most inspired by storytelling - stories about heroes, villains, women's experiences, history, fantasy, space, science fiction, horror. Currently I'm reading See Through My Eyes, a collection of ghost stories; a story by my dear friend Victor Rodriguez published in it inspired my new orchestral album Rebirth of Id. The game that most inspired me this year is Horizon Zero Dawn. I still listen to a lot of music but these days I'm composing more and focusing on telling my own stories and writing my own music (passion projects), in addition to all jobs that are always going on. Musically, I am most inspired by the phenomenal talent and mastery of a fellow game & film composer, Neal Acree. I have the honor of orchestrating his music for all Blizzard video games.

Jeremy [Six Strings]: If you could spread one message to a new composer, what might that be?

Penka Kouneva:
01. Write fantastic music. Write music that inspires people so much that they would be dying to collaborate with you.
02. Learn, learn, learn, compose, compose, compose … the craft of music is a deepest ocean of possibilities …. being fluent in your composing skills is paramount.
03. Be a caring human being, and cultivate circles of creative communities around you, because your circles of friends and champions will bring the most inspiring scoring jobs to you. OK, three messages.

Jeremy [Six Strings]: What can you share with us outside the film "DEVIL'S WHISPER" upcoming projects or something you would like to mention?

Penka Kouneva: Yes, three upcoming features - Encounter, Blue, the 3rd one is NDA and also one NDA video game. I am a freelance composer and always on the lookout for new collaborators and new opportunities.

Jeremy [Six Strings]: You have the floor, share something you would like people to know?

Penka Kouneva: I wish all my readers a happy and fruitful Fall season and much success! I am grateful and humbled by the love and support of my fans - you make all our work meaningful and real. Enjoy Devil's Whisper!

THANK YOU!

Interview with Game Soundtrack "PROJECT CARS 2" Composer Stephen Baysted

 
Jeremy [Six Strings]: How did you come to work on the "PROJECT CARS" game soundtrack and how much creative freedom did you have on the latest "PROJECT CARS 2" compared to the previous one?

Stephen Baysted: I’ve been fortunate enough to have composed the music for all Slightly Mad Studios’ games stretching right back to their first game release in 2004. I had a great deal of creative freedom for Project Cars 2. However, as composer and audio director for the series, my role is always to serve the needs of the game.

Jeremy [Six Strings]: When creating music like "PROJECT CARS 2", where did you find your inspiration or do you find you have a ritual?

Stephen Baysted: Good question! Inspiration comes from many sources: deadlines, walking in the countryside, being by the ocean. There’s no ritual as such, but I begin each project by doing research on the subject matter and I find that it helps to get things kick-started.

Jeremy [Six Strings]: Congratulations on your nomination from the "Golden Joystick Awards" for "PROJECT CARS 2" for all your hard work in creating a great score like this... how is this different from a film "nod" to a game "nod" of appreciation?

Stephen Baysted: Thank you very much! It’s always an honour to be recognized for hard work, especially when you’ve been working on a project for such a long time. I think nowadays they are quite similar, although what makes the Golden Joystick Awards so special is the fact that they are voted by the audience.

Jeremy [Six Strings]: Your career has many different levels from game, television series and film... where do you find is the most rewarding or could you please share one of your favourite of each?

Stephen Baysted: This is a difficult question. To be honest I really enjoy the variety of projects, working with new people and collaborating on new ventures. Each is a very different medium to work in and I’m not sure I have a favourite!

Jeremy [Six Strings]: Can you share some upcoming projects?

Stephen Baysted: Work has already begun on my next game project due for release in 2019. It’s a major Hollywood film franchise tie-in but I can’t say too much more about it at this stage! I’m also working on various TV series at the moment, one of which is with Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge and the BBC.
 
THANK YOU...

Project CARS 2 is nominated for Best Audio [Click Here] in the 25th Golden Joystick Awards (VOTE HERE) and the original soundtrack is out now on Spotify and iTunes.

Baysted is an in-demand film and television composer whose credits include two seasons of Blink Film's epic documentary series "Ancient Mysteries" for Channel 5, Blink's "Volatile Earth" for Channel 4 and Nova, and "Graveyard of the Giant Beasts" for Channel 4 and PBS. Earlier this year, Baysted also reunited with award-winning filmmaker Phil Grabsky and Seventh Art Productions to score "I, Claude Monet," a new documentary feature in the acclaimed 'Exhibition On Screen' series. Their previous collaborations include "Renoir: Reviled and Revered," "The Impressionists - And The Man Who Made Them," and the Royal Television Society award-winning "Matisse: Live from the Tate and MoMa".

Special News: "NO MARRIAGE" [2017] FILM and MUSIC


Here is a film that features good friend and composer Vincent Gillioz (http://vincentgillioz.com/) whom I have been working with on several releases for Howlin' Wolf Records (http://howlinwolfrecords.com/) over the years. Vincent has crossed over the international waters of music many times, but this is a little more special as he has stepped into his own produced release.

NO MARRIAGE (2017), directed by Wang Zhan and starring Zhong Zheng and Zhang Qianru. Based on the highly popular manga of the same name, the movie adaptation tells the story of Gao Xin, a single office lady who faces family and societal pressure following a break-up with her ex-boyfriend. She meets up with the romantically inexperienced software engineer Rong Er, who is gathering data about female perspectives on love for research. They form a "romantic contract" to help each other out and gradually, begin to develop unexpected feelings for each other.


This bilingual (English and Chinese) album has been produced and annotated with exclusive liner notes by Benjamin Chee, with striking art design by the peerless Luis M Rojas. For a limited time, CD-R orders placed on this Vincent's website will include an insert booklet signed by composer Vincent Gillioz.


This film "NO MARRIAGE" is getting a considerable amount of attention from the story, directing, acting and of course the score... I have become a fan of this film and finding that Vincent has once again outdone himself with this light-hearted journey. I wish Vincent, Benjamin, Wang Zhan and all involved the best success.

Knock... Knocking on Heaven's Door... Tobe Hooper, 'Texas Chain Saw Massacre' director, dies at 74


William Tobe Hooper (January 25, 1943 – August 26, 2017) was an American film director, screenwriter, and producer best known for his work in the horror film genre; his most recognized films include The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Poltergeist. Stuart Heritage of The Guardian described The Texas Chain Saw Massacre as "one of the most influential films ever made".

Filmmakers who have been influenced by Hooper include Hideo Nakata, Wes Craven, Rob Zombie, Alexandre Aja, and Jack Thomas Smith. Director Ridley Scott has stated that his work on Alien was influenced by Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre more than any other B-level genre product.

Killer Klowns Orchestral Soundtrack John Massari and Guest Artist Bear McCreary Re-Awaken this classic Sci-Fi movie soundtrack.


"One of the best ’80s synth scores is being given new life." This iconic film score was originally scored with the incredible synthesizers of the day. Your love for this cherished cult classic has been a source of great inspiration. The time has come to perform the score with a full orchestra. Together, we can bring this beloved soundtrack to life!

Hello, my name is John Massari. For over 35 years, I have composed music for the film and media industry, fulfilling a boyhood dream. Sharing my creativity through music with many of you has significantly added to what has been a joyous journey.

In 1988, the Chiodo Brothers unleashed "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" onto the world. I was selected to compose the music score for this amazing film, which has become a Sci-fi classic. Throughout all these years, your love for this film and its music score has been a powerful source of inspiration for me.

May... "May" Bring you Happiness and Joy!... some Sadness!


In the last several weeks I have friends like Melissa and David lose their battle to Cancer, but hopefully they found peace. I am always reminded when my father passed, the Cancer took him over for years and his short 3 month visit from hospital to hospital... he finally met the end. We cried, we shared stories, I learned the man who was my father... was also a man, a friend. I found this too late as those 3 months was never enough time. My father's last whispered request to me, I remain strong... never show my emotions for him... keep my mother safe and never show I am not strong for her. It's been over 10 years and I honestly have respected his request, only once at the wake I made a contact with one of my cousins... where I welled up. Since then... not around people, not my mother.

I come today and I am sharing my tears... here as I type... we lost good friends, family... I am tearing in my heart as I prepare to visit our friends, sharing stories... jokes... last time we talked, saw them. Is there ever enough time, no... sadly no.

This is really a message to you, always say "good-bye", "I love you" and "you are my friend"... there are more sayings I am sure... Sorry for a sad post, really only a handful of people will see it, but it's high time you know... people are sometimes "once" in your life...

Be excellent to each other... - Bill and Ted!

May... "May" Bring you Happiness and Joy!

How My "APRIL" Went... How You Doing?


Many of you had a solid month, I am not sure if I am coming or going... so let's say only the good things that came from the month... 

MULTIPLICATION is vexation;
Division is as bad;
The Rule of Three perplexes me;
And Practice drives me mad.

RESOLUTIONS... 2017, 31 Days Later?


So did you make any resolutions in the start of 2017, I sure did... and I haven't even started to follow them yet. I am a slow mover, like a turtle I guess... where I would love to be the crazy rabbit. So things that are slowly taking shape is the "BLOGGING A TO Z CHALLENGE [2017]" where in the past I was part team and I guess I still am. I was a CO-HOST for several years, designer and well just me. This year I am stepping back my duties to just "design" and I am thankful they still let me do my thing. I am thrilled and the first announcement for the challenge just came up on Monday this week, so please if you like a challenge... [CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION]. So why do you ask, my involvement is cut back...


Well, Six Strings eMag is going on it's second year and it's been received with mixed reviews, not in number counts (site visits huge)... download counts (seriously low). I am not sure why this is, it's designed for people on the move, have you ever taken a look at it. I have been wondering if it's necessary to continue the magazine, as it flops around like a fish looking for water. I have great writers, interviews, cool films, cool books, cool music and more... Anyone got any thoughts?

I do appreciate those who do take the time to read it, but I think I am just going to share the complete pages into the site... Don't get me wrong "I LOVE, LOVE" designing it, making it happen and getting to stretch my creative wings. I am giving it until June 2017, see what happens.


So the whole point was to talk about resolutions, so many make them and so many break them... where do you fit into that. WE ONLY FAIL, WHEN WE GIVE UP.. AND LOOKING UP, HOW CAN WE FAIL?

Have a great... great... great day, and soon another SIX STRINGS eMAG... will be here!

FU FACEBOOK... TROLLS! ... Politics Smolitics!


I am tired of senseless swearing on social media, can't people find words that don't offend people or just me? If you are a jack-nut and respond with a vulgar response... unfriend yourself now.  It's been a long time since we were dragging our knuckles across the ground, so use better words... I know there are good people inside your angry head.


If you voted and lost... you still voted. If you voted and won, well be  a little sympathetic to those who didn't win. If you are bitching about the winner and you didn't vote... sorry you don't really have a say in the outcome. If protesting is your thing and you turn it into a violent situation, well then you missed the point. We need to turn this great country great, again... it doesn't really make a difference to who leads us... it's us who needs to make the difference.

Ch Cha CHANGES... BOWIE "ONE YEAR" GONE, not forgotten!


I still don't know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets
And every time I thought I'd got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I've never caught a glimpse
Of how the others must see the faker
I'm much too fast to take that test

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Don't want to be a richer man
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can't trace time

Where do we go now... we are left with hundreds of hours of music, we will miss the man... what sorts of CHANGES do you have planned for the 2017. So far I have fallen flat on my face, falling back into the same rut... my intentions were to be stronger, be better and so far... big zero. How do you find your motivation, how can you help me find mine?
