Here’s an old one from 2001 (you can tell because it’s on VHS).
Some of you know, Planet of the Apes is one of my favorite films of all time for every reason you can imagine. Back when Tim Burton’s re-imagination hit theaters, FOX ran a special about it.
A year earlier in 2000 while working at Videohelper, they requested I write some atonal music in the style of the original Jerry Goldsmith score for an upcoming specialty album (Freakshow VH018). I was definitely the guy to do it.
The FOX special is called Rule The Planet and there’s a segment giving the history of the original 1968 version using my track “Man Has No Understanding”. You can hear it all: delayed pizzicatos, cymbal scrapes, alto flutes and all. The fact they deemed it sonically legit is enough of a compliment for me. I’m honored to be even remotely connected.
