Imagine some of those iconic cinematic scenes…

WELCOME

…without music. The scintillating establishing scenes of Blade Runner’s futuristic Los Angeles, Elliot and E.T. soaring past the full moon on their flying bicycle or Luke Skywalker staring up at the twin suns of Tatooine. An effective soundtrack vitally enhances the visuals and informs our emotional reactions to the film or television show we’re watching. Soundtracking, therefore, is a process that requires the composer to have an investment in the work and utilise a collaborative mindset. In our cover feature this month, we present the complete guide to the process from a professional standpoint, with industry advice and even step-by-step guides to try some of the unique creative processes yourself. In addition to our main feature, we also speak with in-demand composer Junkie XL about his work on top-tier blockbusters such as Mad Max: Fury Road and Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Elsewhere this issue, we commemorate the 20th anniversary of Air’s Moon Safari by revisiting its making, with fresh contributions from ethereal vocalist Beth Hirsch. Our expanded tutorial section now (once again!) covers Pro Tools, as well as our usual range of reviews, tips and the second part of our Essential Guide To Plug-In Effects. I hope you enjoy the issue.
