Creating the Score for Star Trek

By David Goe
Friday, May 24, 2013

     

    

Spock may have mastered his emotions but it's a lot more difficult for us. If you've seen the new "Star Trek" movie you know that tensions run high throughout the film, and a big part of the emotional atmosphere is the musical score. Part of what makes the rebooted Star Trek movies so cool are the beeps and boops from the captains deck, the "beam me up Scotty!" transporters, and the "set phasers to stun" laser shots. Couple those space sounds with a full orchestra and  you've got a dazzling soundscape to match the stunning visuals from "Star Trek Into Darkness."

Check out this interview with the mastermind behind the film's score, music conductor and orchestrator Tim Simonec. Simonec works directly with director J.J. Abrams to create the tension filled score. This interview gives you a sense of what it's like to match music to the film footage and just how labor intensive movie making is. Pretty amazing stuff here.

First Listen: Wave Baby and Rebel Spaceships

By David Goe
Tuesday, May 21, 2013

This Friday we get a proper look at two new bands, Wave Baby and Rebel Spaceships. Though new as bands, both groups are made up of familiar faces. Wave Baby is the new project of former Heavy Drags members Gavin Bistodeau and  Andrew Watson and Rebel Spaceships is the reunited band of recently returned musician Jason Dunn. 

"We are a three piece guitar rock band with vocal harmonies," Dunn said. "We've been playing together for about six months, but Rebel Spaceships used to play around town like ten years ago. I just got it going again with new members." Rebel Spaceships is influenced by everything from classic rock and punk bands like The Ramones, The Misfits, to surfy stuff like The Ventures and Dick Dale.

"If I'm going to be completely honest with myself, I am pretty influenced by older metal bands like Metallica and Slayer and Iron Maiden," Dunn added.

Wave Baby on the other hand is a guitar and drum, vibed out, stony baloney duo. According to drummer Watson, Wave Baby is "cranking guitar, reverb city, blasted out, clap your hands too drum beats and bright tunneled vocal" rock music.

It sounds like if you dig guitar driven indie rock this is the show to check out. Friday night is sure to be a shredders paradise with Dunn, Bistodeau, and Bronco Country's Griff Chiono all ripping on guitar.    

Check out their sets of new bands Wave Baby and Rebel Spaceships at Cruisers on Horizon with support from Bronco Country.  This is a 21 and up event and there is a $5 cover.

Free Music Monday: Lana Del Rey

By David Goe
Monday, May 20, 2013

If you've seen the new Great Gatsby movie you probably remember hearing "Young & Beautiful" by Lana Del Rey. It's a heartfelt future pop tune lost in the head of the witless Daisy, Gatsby's beautiful but flaky object of his affection. Well, with Lana Del Rey on the mind, here are some great downloads for Free Music Monday. 

Thanks to the people over at White Raver Rafting, we've got the 12 Best Lana Del Rey Remixes to enjoy. Many of her best tracks like "Summertime Sadness," "Video Games," and "Blue Jeans" get the remix treatment and many of the tracks are also free downloads. You'll also find that Kill Paris made the list with his mix called "I love you Lana Del Rey (From My Heart)." If you recall, Kill Paris played at the Mesa Theater and Club last December. 

Check out these mixes and enjoy!
