Options May 23, 2017: JOHN MASSARI (Killer Klowns From Outer Space)
John Massari joins Devon to discuss his 35-plus year soundtrack career with early opportunities to orchestrate and compose for episodes of "Little House on the Prairie" and "Hart to Hart" which lead to the Hanna-Barbera "Johnny Quest" 80's re-boot and cult classics such as the Lorenzo Lamas' "Snake Eater" franchise, Retro Puppet Master, Mike Jittlov's "The Wizard of Speed and Time" and, of course, the Chiodo Brothers' "Killer Klowns From Outer Space," for which the long-awaited sequel has recently been announced (sort of). Mentored by Jerry Fielding, David Rose and Mark Snow and studying with the legendary David Raskin and Leonard Stein, John has composed for over 100 film and TV productions

presumably he's talking about a CMI? www.vintagesynth.com...
Avatar    Tue. 5/23/17 8:08pm maestroso:

I think the Yamaha rack system he was talking about was the TX-816. I had one... basically eight DX-7s without keyboard, MIDI controlled. One could make some great sounds with it (it took a lot of work).

Jonny Quest had some pretty good action music, as I recall.
  Tue. 5/23/17 8:59pm Todd:

Not a little of Debussey's cello sonata in this one
  Tue. 5/23/17 9:08pm Joe Francis:

I got a project composing incidental music for a unreleased pilot...I knew I was in trouble when the producer asked me if I had a sitar handy...................and I did!!!!
