"The Music of Sound" with Deane Ogden and Brian Ralston

Episode 69 - "The Music of Sound" 

Composers Deane Ogden (Eastern Chronicle) and Brian Ralston (Crooked Arrows) co-hosts of the popular podcast, The Scorecast join Christopher Coleman.  They discuss Chris' perceived score trend moving away from "the sound of music" and to "the music of sound," where the compositional palettes are increasingly being formed from the  processing of both everyday sounds, to expertly recorded, orchestra sessions  In the longest, most insightful "What Have You Been Listening To" segment to date, they discuss Gravity, Bernard Herrmann, and newcomer Liam Bates' Last Passenger.
