@cal body 2 no indent:Everyone knows that John Williams wrote the music to Star Wars. But very few are aware that Conrad Pope also had a hand in that classic soundtrack. Pope was the one who translated Williams ideas into a language that the orchestra could understand. Dozens of other movies (including the Harry Potter films and King Kong) also bear Popes imprint. I try to help composers be the best they can be, he says. I make no pretensions; this isnt art music. But it can be mighty exciting. And it can contribute to a great experience in the theater.
