We hope you haven't disappeared for the holidays yet, because the jam-packed December edition of FSM ONLINE is now live. This month’s cover story is an interview with NICHOLAS BRITELL about his music for IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK and VICE, both shortlisted in the Best Score Oscar race. Also this issue, KRIS BOWERS tells us about scoring GREEN BOOK and coaching Mahershala Ali in his role of Dr. Don Shirley; RUPERT GREGSON-WILLIAMS dives deep for AQUAMAN; an interview with music supervisor MAGGIE PHILIPS on the soundtrack of HOMECOMING (written by FSM founder Lukas Kendall!); a HOMECOMING Counterpoint with Tim Greiving and the Kaplans arguing the merits of tracking; MAX RICHTER hails MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS; THEODORE SHAPIRO builds a score for DESTROYER; MYCHAEL DANNA writes for a living legend in ON THE BASIS OF SEX; LUDWIG GÖRANSSON re-enters the ring with CREED II and discusses his big year; Cary Wong’s annual MEMO TO THE ACADEMY MUSIC BRANCH takes on a different context; inside the Tadlow Records scoring session of KING OF KINGS; a very merry EAR OF THE MONTH contest; lots of album reviews, including MARY POPPINS RETURNS, MORTAL ENGINES and RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET; more embedded audio clips, and more.
