Interview – Wamg Talks To The World’S End Composer Steven Price

21 August 2013 4:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Bells, wires, computers are all part of the music in Edgar Wright’s The World’S End. As you head off to the theaters this weekend to see the film, have your ears on the lookout, or listenout, for Award winning composer Steven Price’s score.

Reteaming director Edgar Wright with actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, The World’S End reunites five friends who return to their hometown to relive an epic pub crawl from their youth. Along the way, the “five musketeers” uncover an alien invasion and soon learn that they are mankind’s only hope of survival.

Price joins the dynamic comedic team of Wright, Pegg, and Frost following the trio’s success with Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz.

His passion for music began early: a guitarist from the age of five, he went on to achieve a First Class degree in Music from Cambridge University. »

Rachel Portman, the first woman to win a scoring Oscar, was the most prominent of three composers whose work was discussed and performed in a showcase at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall.

BBC to celebrate film music in autumn season

Scores of films such as Chariots of Fire and King Kong will be examined in programmes on radio and BBC4

Film music – whether Max Steiner's groundbreaking score for King Kong in 1933 or Bernard Herrmann's brilliant four chords and five notes which went into the music for Citizen Kane – will be examined in a major BBC autumn season.

The broadcaster on Thursday announced details of programmes on BBC4 and its radio stations celebrating composers, songs and film scores that can sometimes be just as important as the images audiences are watching.

Helen Boaden, the BBC's director of radio, said there would be "an incredible breadth" of programming. "We want to give our audiences a deep understanding of what music does for film.
