Might be summer time, might be because this oldie is a goldie: Steven Spielberg speaks with John Williams about the music of Indiana Jones.
Maybe you feel the same: doesn't it look like Steven Spielberg has spend half of his live directing (great) movies and the other half is spent explaining how he did it for DVD bonuses ? Well, in this video, John Williams (who scored Indiana Jones) get to explain how the main theme (the very famous tatalaaa tatalaaa) came about with actually two different themes they mixed as one being the main hookline and the other a bridge...Another interesting point is how much music is being used below the Indiana movies: they are pretty filled up.
John Williams, known for his full blast symphonic scores is the second more nominated person Academy Award, losing only to ...Walt Disney. He won 5 Academy Awards, 4 Golden Globe Awards, 7 BAFTA Awards, and no less than 21 Grammy Awards...His credits include no less than ET, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Superman, Close Encounters and...Tintin.
Son of a jazz musician, he went to Julliard School to perfect his skills and his career in movies started in 1960 with Checkmate but his big break...
