An immensely talented fellow.

RIP

I have seen Twelwe Monkeys (1995) and Most Wanted (1997), two very good movies, scored by Buckmaster.

Sad news. 12 Monkeys was one of the best scores to come from a British composer in the last 20 or so years, IMO. He may have been slightly out of his time with a style closer to the 60s and 70s scores of Jerry Fielding and perhaps Frank Cordell than the generic stuff that most British composers have resorted to lately.

I wish he'd done more.

This should probably be on the main part of the board.

I wasn't too familiar with his work, but 12 MONKEYS impressed me very much. Funny that you (Heath) should mention Fielding, because I think that in the old print FSM review of the soundtrack they said the same thing. Something about "old-fashioned" tone pyramids, and a kind of throwback to the great SF scores of Fielding and Rosenman.

Just checked his career on Wikileaks. Surprised that his credits go back to recordings with Bowie, Leonard Cohen and Miles Davis, starting around '69. When 12 MONKEYS came out, I thought he was some new kid on the block.

R.I.P.

Yes, I thought of that for a moment, but seeing as my experience of his work was mainly through pop music (Elton, Bowie, et al), I opted for this locale.

Was "Friends" his first score work (the gateway drug, so to speak)?

It's OK, Octo - now he's got a thread on t'other side.

I'm the odd one out again in that I came to his work through films. I'd never even heard of him until 12 MONKEYS came out, and by that time he'd already working for decades as arranger/conductor/instrumentalist for tons of world-famous performers I'd ignored all the way through my lonely film-obsessed adolescence and beyond.

FRIENDS does seem to have been his first film work (if "The Computer" is right).

I wish that Harry Nilsson film/LP soundtrack SON OF DRACULA was available on CD, as it contains score tracks by Buckmaster that I wanna hear.
I'll have to check the film out on youtube or summit, although it's supposed to be awful.
