Sohaib: Before we head out Larry, talk a little bit about this wonderful event in New York. I’m actually going to try to go definitely because I know it’s on two days, but give our listeners the details on this because I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this in any genre of film ever especially where its going to be held at Madison Radio City Music Hall.
Larry: Yeah, its just been announced about a week or so. A good friend of the website is also a good friend of Howard Shores – his name is Doug Adams and he’s kind of Howard’s right hand guy. He’s been working on a book about the music of the Lord of the Rings which is pretty wonderful. I’ve been lucky enough to share some good conversations with him. So they want to have this big – part of it I guess is part of the 10 year, but Radio City Music Hall the 9th and 10 of October they will play the Fellowship of the Ring live, and Howard will be there and they will perform the orchestra parts as well as the chorus, so I guess really all the score – live score I guess is the best way to say it. It will be those two nights, and I have it on very good authority, if they sell out it will be on a 3rd night on the Sunday of the same weekend. So really with that much notice, any Lord of the Rings fans, any fan of music and film, which is pretty much everyone, really ought to try to go and attend. And I’m saying that not because I’m getting anything – it’s nothing to do with me except I think it’s awesome. The OneRing is also going to try to plan some events around the weekend so anyone who does go there will be plenty of other things to do there as well. But it’s a phenomenal chance to see the live score of the films, it’s just as cool as can be.
I don't know if "right hand guy" is entirely accurate, but it's certainly flattering! Read the full interview at the link above. And keep your eyes out for Larry... we may be seeing him mentioned around these parts in the not-too-distant future.
