El TRI MTV Unplugged

El_Tri MTV UnpluggedSin lugar a dudas una de las legendarias presentaciones que ha tenido esta banda comandada por Alex Lora ha sido El TRI MTV Unplugged. Era necesario realizar un homenaje al que se consideraba en su momento como una leyenda en México por todo el mundo rockero. Sabíamos como calificaban aquellos VJ Argentinos de los 90’s que conducían en su momento el canal de videos en su versión latinoamericana, nacionalistas hasta morir y que por su influencia en tres generaciones diferentes, la Santísima Trinidad del rock de su Argentina la conforman Luis Alberto Spinetta (el padre), Charly García (el hijo) y Fito Páez (algo así como el Espíritu Santo). México de gran peso para esta este canal no podían evitar rendir ese homenaje al que fuera uno de los primeros rockeros y fuese Alex Lora y El TRI, haciendo alusión a lo anterior mencionado.

En el patio del colegio (The Birds 1963)

The Birds (1963)Bodega Bay ha sufrido ya varios ataques que se creen aislados, por parte de pájaros enloquecidos. Malenie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) va a buscar a la joven Cathy (Veronica Carthwright) al colegio. Llega antes de que la clase haya terminado, por lo que decide sentarse en el patio y se fuma un cigarrillo con gran elegancia mientras, dentro, los niños cantan “The Wee Cooper O’ Fife”, una repetida y monótona canción popular escocesa. Malenie tiene muchas cosas en que pensar y no se fija en los pájaros que van posándose de dos en dos en la estructura de hierro que se encuentra a sus espaldas. Entonces un aleteo atrae su atención y -desde la perspectiva de la protagonista- la cámara se eleva y sigue a un pájaro que surca el aire y va aterrizar en la estructura, que está completamente cubierta de pájaros amenazantes.

Everly by Bear McCreary

Everly by Bear McCrearyWith Everly by Bear McCreary is one of the most outstanding composers out there. His training comes from the late Elmer Bernstein ; as you might be aware Elmer was a master craftsman when it came to motifs and so his knowledge passed by. Bear McCreary had his chance scoring Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries along with Richard Gibbs. After BSG was picked up for a season Richard Gibbs stepped out (due to a professional choice) hence we got McCreary on board. The rest is history really, his talent and music has been evolving ever since and now almost 10 years since his inception in the composing world we have his newest cd, Everly.

For those of you who hasnt seen it yet, Everly is an action thriller that revolves around revenge, gangs, prostitutes and did I mention Salma Hayek? So the question that springs to my mind is, what about the score? As previously stated McCreary has evolved a lot since his last forray at the BSG world and the music while making some instruments connections everything you know about him is gone.

V for Vendetta (2006)

I don’t know who you are but I hope you escape this place. I hope that the world turns and things get better and that one day people have roses again. I don’t know who you are but I love you. I love you. Valerie.
Inicie esta reseña con las lineas de Valerie escritas en ese papel al cual llegó a sus manos Evey (Natalie Portman), quien con lagrimas en sus ojos se pierde en la oscuridad de las cuatro paredes de su celda. Un nudo en la garganta sentí al ir conociendo todo el relato que vivió esta chica actriz y como poco a poco fue perdiendo todo lo que tenia, y estaba agradecida con la vida al decir que tuvo tres años de rosas hermosas. Pero creo que lo quebrantable de este relato es que a quien fuera, sin conocerlo da su último suspiro de cariño y amor interpretado por mí: –Aún así sin conocerte, déjame decirte que te amo.-

Furious 7 by Brian Tyler

fast and furious 7Boy! another year and another Fast and Furious film hit the theaters in March. This time around the score Furious 7 is once again penned by Brian Tyler who had to sit Fast Six since it was filmed in Spain (rumors which are very true by this point of time say that part of the contract filming in Spain stated that it was to be composed by a Spaniard national, come forward Lucas Vidal). Whatever the case for the previous film the music was so random that it hardly went noticed (no score released for this one).

Brian Tyler has made a name for himself , he is an orchestral powerhouse blending well with almost any kind of music style there is out there, sometimes he is a chameleon blending his orchestra with synthetic elements making his scores very close to Remote Control (with quality and actual music wit). Regarding his foray to the Fast and Furious franchise this would be his 4th score, scoring Tokyo Drift back in 2006 which introduced a fast pace string/guitar riff combo track, this as the foundations for his current theme. Next was Fast & Furious in 2009 which toyed with the idea, a little bit aimless but he added some more synths to the mix and the string section became more dynamic giving the score a more versatile approach.
