XHM #229 - "Blessings of the state, blessings of the masses" (2014 September 01)

7:00pm - 9:00pm

To start the new school year here at UBC, we profile George Lucas' debut film: THX-1138. Lalo Schifrin's score and influenced artists. Be happy: the future is here.

Originally, I had plan to look more extensively at Walter Murch's mind-melting sound design for the film, but timing and misplacing my DVD made this difficult. If you haven't watched THX-1138 with the isolated score (in other word, with most actor dialogue removed), it's a brilliant listen.

What's wrong? Are you now or have you ever been?
