The Not John WIlliams Panel: The Many, Many Other Great Composers of Hollywood


Saturday September 23, 2017 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

John Williams is an undisputed genius, having scored the Hollywood's biggest blockbusters and most memorable themes since Jaws met Alex Kintner in 1975. But despite his brilliance, other composers like John Barry, Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, James Newton Howard, Howard Shore, and Hans Zimmer, have produced soundtracks just as memorable, brilliant and worthy of discussion. The panel will discuss the importance of soundtracks to the history of cinema, and and highlight the great knowns and unknowns, including old masters like Max Steiner, Bernard Herrman, Elmer Bernstein, and Ennio Morricone, new artists like Michael Giacchino and Cliff Martinez, directors who score their own works like John Carpenter and Dario Argento, and rock stars turned composers like Johnny Greenwood and Danny Elfman.
