I Won’t Shut Up About Jerry Goldsmith

I Won’t Shut Up About Jerry Goldsmith

Presented without much further comment or help are “New Identity” from Jerry Goldsmith’s 1968 Planet of the Apes soundtrack and “Echohce” by FM Einheit, Jamie Lidell, David Link & Co, 2007. Both use the same bass pattern for a little bit. I’ve listened to these pieces way more than is healthy. Listening to the two together can produce interesting results. The former might be sampled in the later, although that seems like too much work for three notes.

Sidedate (my new word for ‘vaguely related update’): It’s been sample spotter week at the Wow Cool shop. On Saturday we had someone call out Abba’s Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (or in this case ¡Dame! ¡Dame! ¡Dame! from Oro: Grandes Éxitos) as being the source for Madonna’s Hung Up (you know, the one with all the parkour in the video. It sound a bit like it should be a Vangelis track), and, on Thursday someone sourced Tricky’s Bombing Bastards from John Carpenter’s theme for his own film Assault on Precinct 13, which just happened to be playing on BBC 6Music at the time. I think it’s possible to make a mega-mix of all four of these tracks that would be just massive. Sampling brings a community together.
