The April edition of FSM ONLINE is now live for your reading and listening pleasure. This month’s cover story is a look at the longtime collaboration between DAVID CRONENBERG and HOWARD SHORE, put together by a pair of writers with completely different perspectives: One is unfamiliar with their oeuvre, while the other is deeply knowledgable. Also this issue are a 1978 archival audio piece in which ELMER BERNSTEIN interviews HENRY MANCINI (celebrating Bernstein’s centennial this week); SEAN CALLERY details his work on Paramount+’s sci-fi action hit HALO; former Fox Music chief ROBERT KRAFT talks film music ahead of his CUE & A composer interview series; JON EKSTRAND dives into dark synths for Jared Leto’s MORBIUS; SON LUX hops between realities in EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE; JOHN WILLIAMS returns to Vienna for more concerts; CARL JOHNSON discusses his career in animated television, including HBO Max’s LOONEY TUNES CARTOONS; BATU SENER offers up a composer commentary track for his new ICE AGE score; lots of album reviews including TURNING RED, THE BAD GUYS, BACK TO THE FUTURE: THE MUSICAL and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2: THE DELUXE EDITION; plus embedded audio clips, and more. Enjoy!
