Σαν σήμερα, στης 8 Φεβρουαρίου του 1932 γεννήθηκε στη Νέα Υόρκη ο μεγαλύτερος εν ζωή κινηματογραφικός συνθέτης, John Williams. Θα συνδυάσουμε ένα mini tribute σ’ αυτόν, με το Space Hymns Project, ακούγοντας αποσπάσματα από κάποια sci-fi soundtracks.
Ξεκινάμε από την “αλλόκοσμη” γεμάτη σασπένς μουσική που έγραψε, ως Johnny Williams, για την κλασική σειρά επιστημονικής φαντασίας Lost In Space [1965-1968]:

On this date, February 8, 1932, John Williams, the greatest living film composer, was born in New York.
We will combine a mini tribute to him with our “Space Hymns project”, listening to some of his sci-fi scores.
Starting with two excerpts from the “otherworldly” suspenseful music he wrote, as Johnny Williams, for the classic sci-fi series Lost In Space [1965-1968]:

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, 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 sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
