ReelMusic Returns

Greetings. You have found my little site, ReelMusicOnline. Thank you for stopping by.

There exist many great sites covering the art of film music. I figured there was room for another. But first, an explanation is in order.

ReelMusic began as a magazine several years ago. We made contacts, held interviews with some big names in the industry and has a good time doing so. We could have continued if the market could have supported it, but as Egon Spengler said in "Ghostbusters", "Print is dead". Our magazine could not hope to survive.

The internet has taken over what used to be the domain of the printers. Several other film score magazines have since ceased publication. The internet has proven its dominance.

I often look back at the good old days, when I used to look forward to getting the mail. I would search for the latest issue of FilmScoreMonthly among the bills and various junk mail. The magazine kept me busy for the entire day. There was much to see and read in each issue. I expanded my knowledge of the industry, absorbing every little fragment from the numerous articles and reviews.

Although those days are long gone, I sincerely hope that they can continue in some form or forum. The internet is such a forum, where people can get together and discuss this wonderful world of film scores.

To this worldwide forum, I now add my own voice, my thoughts and my experiences.

And so ReelMusic returns.
