Original Show Notes - GUEST HOST: AMER ZAHID
Cinematic Sound is proud to add another personality to our ever-expanding roster of guest hosts. Amer Zahid is a lifelong film music aficionado and collector from Karachi, Pakistan. His formal introduction to film music began at age 7 with John Williams' SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE in the late 70's and it opened the flood gates for his love of film music. Amer has written for Lukas Kendall’s Film Score Monthly, Len Mullinger’s Film Music on the Web as well as other internet based film music review websites. Amer’s favorite composers are John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, John Barry, Miklos Rozsa, Maurice Jarre and of course Bernard Herrmann. Herrmann’s music from Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO and VERTIGO had a profound effect on him and was quick to embrace the works of legendary Golden Age composer.
In this first part of Cinematic Sound's celebration of Bernard Herrmann's 100th anniversary, (which was actually last year - Bernard Herrmann was born on June 29, 1911 - so we are a little late to the party, big whoop, wanna fight about it?) Amer will be exploring, among other things, Herrmann's career with legendary directors Orson Welles and Alfred Hitchcock and presenting music from THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD, ON DANGEROUS GROUND, THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS, NORTH BY NORTHWEST, VERTIGO, 5 FINGERS, THE SNOWS OF KILIMANJARO and THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR.
