Hi everyone,

Just on the 20th Anniversary of Michael's passing on November 18th, we've re-launched his website!

Long in the making, the site is now a treasure trove for nearly every project of Michael: Ballets, Concertos, Film & TV Scores, Concerts, as well as his work in Music Production and Arrangements. Lots of which appear on the site - together with audio clips - for the first time ever!

For the film projects to which the Kamen Estate has information on you will find detailed crew information, as well as lists for every cue that was recorded, including audio samples from previously unreleased scores.
As we continue to unearth more treasures in the Estate's archives we will be gradually updating the site.

This project is a labor of love and we hope it will be enjoyed by fans of Michael's and film music fans alike.

Please spread the word and support us in keeping the music playing!

Cool, thanks for the update! Didn't Rune Karolius run a Kamen site once? Is he part of this? Are you him? If so, hello and hope to see you in Tromsø in January! smile

Stirring snipets from unrealesed as "S.H.E.", "Shanghai surpirse", "Wilder Napalm" and, surprisingly, "Event Horizon" orchestral score!

Wow awesome! So cool to hear unreleased snippets from my most wanted grails… License to Kill and Hudson Hawk! Great site.

This site looks fantastic, what an amazing job! I love seeing the complete cue lists and hearing unreleased cue excerpts... come on, expanded Event Horizon, someday soon!

Oh my gosh, and those unreleased cues from Highlander!

Oh wow there are a lot more samples than I realized. So many amazing pieces I've never heard before

Finally, some clips from "Wilder Napalm". So the next step is for someone to release the score on cd. This is a real hidden gem.

What an incredibly cool website archive! Great ideas to whomever were involved.

And those unreleased clips were both exciting and a painful tease. However, it's nice to know how organized Kamen's life's work is being preserved. Wouldn't be surprised if the labels are working hard with the Kamen Estate on getting those highly wished for albums out.

Where are you guys seeing or hearing clips?

On the main page under Catalogue. Right click and open new tabs on the posters. They are not under the Soundtracks dropdown.

Nice looking page!

Will there some day be clips from Band of Brothers?
I love that score and have been dreaming of an expanded release for years! smile

Looks like nearly every single rejected/un-used and demo score is listed, too Even one or two I didn't know about. Only one has samples (his mostly un-used score for Dead Bang).

Great! Looks fantastic.

Got a bug report too. The menu's for [Music] and [Musings] are unclickable on MAcOS Safari. The hover disappears before you get to them.

Finally had some time to gather my thoughts; this website is an EXCELLENT resource. I was so glad to finally see cue titles for my favorite, totally unreleased Kamen score, "Dead Bang", and 'Discovering Maps' is probably my favorite cue from that score.

Also fascinating to see which scores only have demos. I NEVER would have imagined Kamen being associated with "Memento"; I wonder if he sought out the filmmakers, or vice versa.

For sure, I will be using the catalog to help inform the thread that I started about Kamen scores that need to be expanded.
