Melodic Treks 80: Is He? / by Brandon-Shea Mutala

Main Titles with Mike Schindler.


Main Titles are an interesting and important part of a film's score. Generally the first thing that you see during the cinematic experience, they are designed to audibly paint a landscape, provide an emotional anchor for the viewer, and to provide expectations for what they are about to see.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Mike Schindler, host of Trek FM's Stage Nine, to discuss Main Titles. We talk about their purpose in the film, how they differ from End Titles, and weather or not Jerry Goldsmith is better than John Williams. (He is.) (Or is he?)
