Network News Music
« on: October 25, 2017, 10:11:PM »
Network News Music has been even composed by famous Hollywood composers! The whole concept of a theme music to a news show started with... John Williams!

Here's 3 that I found.

1) John Williams "The Mission" for NBC Nightly News, used for over 20 years.

2) James Horner's "Up to the Minute" used from 2006 to 2011 by CBS

3) Hans Zimmer's Opening Theme for ABC's World News Tonight used since 2012
Do you know what the scariest thing is? To not know your place in this world, to not know why you're here. That's - that's just an awful feeling. -- Elijah Price,  Unbreakable (2000)

Interesting bit of trivia...had to idea.
Narrative is the poison of cinema...There's nothing more beautiful than elusiveness in cinema.
