You are joking, right?

No, I'm not joking.

I create Excel workbooks on many film composers.
Within each, I document the dates of the recording sessions.
The only sources of information I have gotten on this frequently elusive data are contained in soundtrack notes and album credits.
Apparently, this sort of data comes mainly from the American musicians' unions, who've listed the recording dates along with orchestra personnel on their paperwork records.

I imagine that musicians and conductors arrived at the worksite that morning, just like on any other workday, to do the day's work ahead of them.
I'm curious, though, if, on 11/22/63, studios continued the day's work until finished or were the personnel permitted to leave early for the day...


Oh, a professional interest! Why didn't you say so earlier? My apologies.

Next we can discuss scores recording on September 11, 2001.

Though not recorded on this day, the score albums for BUBBLE BOY and JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK were released on this day. True story.


Wow. Just effing Wowie, Wow-wow. Nero fiddles, whilst Rome burns....


Not exactly sure how to react to this. This is just something I learned in the years since.

Not a terrible question at all, I think. It's interesting how quickly folks came up with scores recorded on 9/11.

I can only think of three dates since WWII where the world (certainly the U.S.) stopped. Nov 22 1963, Jan 28 1986, and of course Sep 11 2001.

I was only alive for two of them. There might be more.

I would add 9 November 1989 to that list. Certainly a seminal date in European history.

*update*

Jerry Goldsmith scored SEVEN DAYS IN MAY on October 21, 1963 and then he did SHOCK TREATMENT on December 10th & 17th 1963.

It may be of interest to note that "My Fair Lady" was being filmed on this date.

Someone told director George Cukor who asked Audrey Hepburn to announce the assassination to the film's cast and crew.

After that, production stopped for the day. I don't know whether they returned the next day or stayed out, like most of the United States, to watch the funeral.
