If there's any one new trend in the film industry that is getting better and better it's the live concerts. For years now, composers of all kinds have been hosting live performances of their favorite work, usually shown alongside with the film during the orchestration. We've seen everyone from John Williams to Clint Mansell to Jonny Greenwood, and now there's another legendary composer jumping into live performances - horror master John Carpenter. That's right, the Atp Iceland music festival taking place in July of 2016 has officially booked John Carpenter for his first ever live performance of his film scores and new compositions. If you're a John Carpenter fan, this sounds like it's a cannot-miss event, so you better book your tickets now. Fans of John Carpenter already know he recently released a new album of work called Lost Themes, and that many of his scores are being released as vinyl by Mondo. »

Rome – The Rome Film Festival has unveiled the lineup of its 10th edition comprising a rich mix of crowdpleasing and more esoteric fare, including local launches of James Ponsoldt’s “The End of the Tour,” Michael Almereyda’s “The Experimenter,” Peter Sollett’s “Freehold,” Lenny Abrahamsson’s “Room,” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s docu “Junun” (pictured) about Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s travels to India.
Under new direction by New York-based Italian journalist and academic Antonio Monda, the Rome fest has been renamed Festa del Cinema – which translates literally as “Film Party” rather than festival. The only award is given by the audience.
Monda said he decided to do away with the competition, the juries, and the opening and closing ceremonies “all rituals that I view as too stuffy and conventional, inappropriate to what I had in mind.” He instead kept the audience nod “to underscore the idea of a »

After composing the score for Paul Thomas Anderson's last three films, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood is finally stepping in front of the camera. Anderson will debut Junun, a documentary about Greenwood's new album, at this year's New York Film Festival. Earlier this year, Anderson accompanied Greenwood on a trip to Rajasthan in northwest India, where Greenwood recorded with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and more than a dozen other artists. Those sessions, according to the Nyff's site, are the subject of "a lovely impressionistic mosaic and a one-of-a-kind sonic experience." The festival runs from September 25 through October 11. Hopefully this will be the start of a trend: Next up, PTA will shoot a doc about his boom-mic operator. »
