Σαν σήμερα, στης 8 Φεβρουαρίου του 1932 γεννήθηκε ο μεγαλύτερος εν ζωή κινηματογραφικός συνθέτης, John Williams. Ξεκινάμε ένα mini αφιέρωμα σ’ αυτόν, με δυο αποσπάσματα από την “αλλόκοσμη” γεμάτη σασπένς μουσική που έγραψε, ως Johnny Williams, για την κλασική σειρά επιστημονικής φαντασίας LOST IN SPACE:
1. The Weightless Waltz
2. Tractor Play On-Electric Sagebrush-Will Is Threatened

On this date, February 8, 1932, John Williams, the greatest living film composer, was born. We begin a mini tribute to him with two excerpts from the “otherworldly” suspenseful music he wrote, as Johnny Williams, for the classic sci-fi series LOST IN SPACE:
1. The Weightless Waltz
2. Tractor Play On-Electric Sagebrush-Will Is Threatened

More about these posts/reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
