comPOSERS is the brainchild of producer-turned-composer Aaron deGroot, musician Alex James and songwriter/film aficionado Jay Lang. Each week, one of the boys chooses a film with a noteworthy score (or just one they liked a whole lot) and puts it up for discussion. By the end, the score and its movie are marked out of 40 by each of them based on four categories:
Enjoyment: what's so great about it?
Originality: what makes it stand out?
Music to Film: how well does it accompany the action on screen?
Cultural Importance: will this score resonate through the ages or be forgotten?
The perfect 40 has yet to be found, but there's a lot of great music and a lot of great movies to enjoy (or skewer) along the way. Welcome, listeners, to comPOSERS: the Movie Score Podcast.
