Watching this interview with the late Alexander Courage (the guy who wrote the Star Trek theme) is inspiring and depressing. Inspiring because of his personality and work, depressing because it is so impossible to get a shot in the film word if you don’t live in Los Angeles.
My favourite part is learning that he went to orchestral rehearsals all the time when he got to music school. That’s what I wish I could access. I hate only experimenting with libraries of samples.
Note to self: befriend orchestras and convince them to let me hang out while they rehearse.
