Melodic Treks 79: Scientifically Accurate / by Brandon-Shea Mutala

The Fantastic Voyage score with Brandi Jackola.


Many composers will have periods in their careers where a sound or an instrument becomes extremely influential, and they will adapt and modify that inspiration for several film scores in a row. One composer, however, seems to have had a style stick with him for a longer period than average.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Brandi Jackola to discuss two scores by Leonard Rosenman: his Emmy award winning score for the 1976 mini-series Sybil, and the strange and moody score to the 1966 science fiction film Fantastic Voyage, and how that score seems to be mirrored in his Academy Award nominated score for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
