Hi SST Folks !

... looked around in the forum and didn't find a topic with thread about new publishings of books.

Two topic headlines exist here at SST Forum:

- Entertainment: What book are you reading right now?
http://www.streamingsoundtracks.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=3307&highlight=books
- Community: Book Recommendations
http://www.streamingsoundtracks.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=3979&highlight=books

And what's about book publishings with the deep going focus onto "film scores" ?? - Watching DVDs, hanging around at YouTube.com and pulling a lot of video datas onto the PC is one thing of learning, getting access to new informations quickly. But still books are a huge (re)source for knowledge hungry fellows.

Might be interesting, hm... (??) - Today I got a news about an easy access for downloading an eBook "FROM THE CLASSROOM TO THE SCORING STAGE" (Author: Sean McMahon). See the next posting following this 1st one.

Such themes like learning by book reading about "resources for those who are looking to gain experience working with a film composer" and many different other interesting topics can still be found in books (made of paper), e.g.

- history of film music
- (self) biographies of film composers
- different styles of film composing
(orchestral, electronic music, ...for documentaries/animes ...)
- new developments in film composing
(e.g. electronic music, software programmes for composing & editing, job profiles, international markets)
- documentaries of world class film projects (and the relevance of film music hereby)
etc. etc. etc. ....

Isn't this interesting to share here ?

So be free to post here books which will be published soon, or just have been published. Important: NEW PUBLISHINGS. And the focus: (all around) FILM MUSIC.

Please name the source, prize (best incl. online order), ISBN number and if exists, links to rezessions, like Amazon has it.

Enjoy listening to good music ! - ElJay from Europe/Germany/Hamburg

Hi, SST Folks !

Check it out, proof on your own, if it is suitable for you. And enjoy !

NEW BOOK NOW AVAILABLE FROM THE FILM MUSIC STORE:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

FROM THE CLASSROOM TO THE SCORING STAGE:
The College Student's Guide to Landing a Job in the Film Scoring Business

($19.95 - 77 pages, Downloadable)

Author Sean McMahon has created a unique and valuable resource for anyone looking to gain experience working with a film composer. The book has a singular goal: to get the reader working for a composer as soon as possible.

McMahon spent the last three years deep in the trenches of the film music scene as a composer’s assistant developing hands-on experience finding work with different film composers and maintaining that work. He recently began his own career as a composer and orchestrator and wants to share the knowledge he acquired along the often bumpy and turbulent road as a composer’s assistant in hopes that it can provide a much more direct path for aspiring film composers on the cusp of beginning their careers.

In his years of working as a composer assistant he worked with four different composers, spending the majority of his time working for composer Christopher Young on films including “The Grudge,” “Beauty Shop,” “The Exorcism Of Emily Rose,” “Lucky You,” “Ghost Rider,” “The Grudge 2,” and most recently, “Spider-Man 3.”

This insightful book discusses an insider's perspective about what composers are looking for in assistants and is invaluable to those looking to begin or expand their careers by working with composers.

Here's what some assistants to top film composers say about this book:

“To the best of my knowledge there is not a book out there that focuses on the multi-tasked life of a film composer’s assistant. You will soon discover that Sean worked for me for three years, and as a consequence I have been blessed to become close to him. He did a fantastic job for me as my assistant, and has done a fantastic job once again in putting together this, his first book.”
- Christopher Young

“Sean McMahon is well qualified to provide advice on such an elusive subject as how to get work as a composer's assistant. This book provides useful insight and relevant anecdotes on how to be successful when you do get your shot. Recommended reading for anybody wanting to work in the film music world.”
- Christian Bacon
Assistant to James Newton Howard

“Utilizing his education and professional experience, Sean McMahon gives the aspiring film composer an insightful go-to guide. From must-have technical skills, to interviewing techniques, to developing relationships with others and much much more, Sean explains in a clearly written manual what it takes to break-in to the film scoring world. I highly recommend this book to emerging film composers and also those already working in the industry who may want to expand their knowledge. I wish this book was available when I moved to Los Angeles!”
- Chandra Cogburn
Assistant to Steve Jablonsky and Harry Gregson-Williams

By Jack Smalley (176 pages)

Top USC film scoring professor Jack Smalley has combined his over forty years of experience arranging, composing and orchestrating for film and teaching into one crystal clear book – Composing Music for Film.

With his years of experience and his modern, up to date teaching
methods he’s consolidated the information he’s given to thousands of students into a one stop shop for getting a head start with the reality of film composition – in fact, all composition.

Reading this book is like taking private lessons for a year with Jack Smalley. With over 125 examples, the chapters cover:

* Section 1: The Elements
* Section 2: Composing a Theme
* Section 3: Writing a Cue
* Section 4: Consonance and Dissonance
* Section 5: The 20th Century

"Composing Music for Film contains precious information from structure through the mechanics of writing a cue and out the other side where the murky business of dissonance and bi-tonality reside."
- Harry Gregson-Williams

"Jack Smalley's book is a dense survey of the techniques of film scoring - enjoyable and informative."
- Carter Burwell

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Reader Comments:

"..it is really universal and will help any composer at any level..."

"...it's great to finally have a practical book on composition out there..."

"...I'm adapting your ideas on "functional exchanges" for my master's thesis..."

"...I used one of your techniques and was delighted with the result. The piece was a finalist sponsored by the Chamber Orchestra Kremlin and was performed in Moscow, then at Carnegie Hall..."
