View Full Version : Those great little TV cues...
10-28-2006, 05:53 PM
I admit that I have watched entirely too much TV. Although it probably made brain dumb, it did stream a lot of music into said brain.
I thought it would be interesting to see the scores/charts for some of the transitional cues for shows like the old Outer Limits, Star Treks... etc. Does anyone know of a source or an archive for this kind of stuff? I spent a bit of time looking, but got impatient after never _quite_ getting to see an image of a chart.

I have a copy of the Star Trek theme orch chart - I'd be happy to fax it to you if you'll send me your fax number. It is nice to see everything that's going on.

Thanks (Lenny), that's very kind of you. I'm guessing :) that it's copywritten, though.

As far as I know no scores for TV underscore are available for purchase, but I believe some may be in circulation among composers in LA. As for the star trek score, I believe Lenny's referring to Goldsmiths movie score which is copyrighted. I just got a copy yesterday while atending he Scott Smalley orchestration seminar. I recommend it to anyone looking to get their hands on real conductor's scores (and original composer's sketches), including 350 pages of goldsmith, elfman, silvestri and many others. Scott is a fine orchestrator and a really chill dude, and his class is loaded with content.
As for those "lovely little TV cues" you're talking about, I have a place in my heart for Ron Jones, who's very underated, but in my opinion none's done it better over the years than him. He represents the finest in TV writing craft and orchestration and gets amazing sound out of smaller TV studio orchestras.
