Welcome to another episode of our continuing series of film, TV and video game composer interviews on the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO NETWORK. Today you get to hear from composer and conductor, Michael McGehee.
Michael McGehee is the founder of New Discovery Recordings and conducts the Hollywood Studio Orchestra on these recordings. He earned his degree in Music Composition at the University of Alabama and completed his graduate studies in Film Scoring at the University of Southern California studying under Fred Steiner, Bruce Broughton, Buddy Baker, and David Raksin. He is also a graduate of Earle Hagen’s Film Scoring Workshop and has scored, recorded, and conducted original music for dozens of short films. He is the author of “The Click Track Book”, a technical manual for synchronizing film and music.
In 2018 McGehee founded New Discovery Recordings with the mission of recording rare and unknown works by Bernard Herrmann. New Discovery Recordings releases freshly recorded orchestral suites each month at newdiscovery.bandcamp.com. These high-quality audio recordings include ten CRIME CLASSICS radio scores and previously unheard concert music like ANNABEL LEE and THE CITY OF BRASS just to name a few.
In January 2021 for the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO NETWORK, Jason Drury talked to Michael Mcgehee via Zoom at his home in Pasadena, California.
During the interview, we talked about New Discovery Recordings, the project’s inception, and the importance of these new re-recordings of the radio music of Bernard Herrmann.
During the show, you will also be hear some of these wonderful re-recordings performed by the Hollywood Studio Orchestra.
