FILMIC RADIO SHOW – April 2020

Untitled.jpegI am now nicely settled and very warmly welcomed into my new recording home at http://www.cinematicsound.net/ and this is my second show of the year. Moving to this fab network has been the main reason for not posting anything for a while, had to make some changes but all done now.

This first 3 months of this year have been pretty good for soundtrack releases, especially in the documentary category. Here are some I can highly recommend:

Dolphin Reef – Steven Price   Elephant – Ramin Djawadi   Stuffed – Ben Lovett –  Les Ailes Pourpres – Steve McLaughlin & The Cinematic Orchestra – Melville, Le Dernier Samourai – Eric Demarsan.

Here is the playlist to this month’s show, I am always open to requests so please do contact me filmicradio@gmail.com. The show can be heard on most streaming platforms and direct from the Cinematic Sound Radio link above.

FILMIC SOUNDTRACK AWARDS 2019

With the awards season more or less at a close, it’s time for me to announce the scores which impressed me the most last year. As per last 2018, I found parts of 2019 difficult in as much as the first half of the year was quite bereft of both films and soundtracks that I liked so thank goodness it got going for the remainder of the year!

This year I  have added scores [per category] which I feel should get a mention.
