Sadly, Jeannot Bouver, the founder of Soundtrack! The Cinemascore and Soundtrack Archive website died on 4 February 2024. Based in Luxembourg City, Jeannot was a career civil servant until his retirement in 2021 but his passion was film music for which he was a strong, enthusiastic advocate. Over the years, through the website, he assiduously promoted film music composers and their music to reach as wide a readership as possible and has made available a valuable resource for this art form which is also his lasting legacy.

Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with the name, but I'm very familiar with both Soundtrack! and Cinemascore. Sorry to hear of his passing; by establishing those magazines, he has left an invaluable film music legacy.

Thor - Jeannot Boever did not establish Soundtrack! magazine or CinemaScore magazine. Sorry if I gave that impression. Those magazines were edited and published by, respectively, Luc Van de Ven and Randall Larson. Jeannot set up the website which archived some of the material from those magazines and is accessible on this link: https://cnmsarchive.wordpress.com/

Found some fascinating reviews and interviews on that website. RIP.

Jeannot worked tirelessly, to archive online, my and other's film music ramblings from the pages of Soundtrack, Cinemascore, Legend and others and sometimes when he told me what he was going to be archiving, gave me the chance to update my work. He never got to archiving my massive Elmer Bernstein 80th birthday interview from Soundtrack! but I do have access to the archive and want to do this myself - though it may not look as pretty as Jeannot made the online versions appear. Godspeed, Jeannot and much love to his wife, Danielle.

Thanks for the clarification. A great endeavour nonetheless.

Very sorry to hear this. A familiar name from the FSM subscriber rolls going back to the early 1990s.

Lukas
