The first staff pick of 2019! Georgina has selected the movie soundtrack to 'The Conversation' by David Shire, which is available here.
“To me, this is one of the most recognisable themes in cinema - and a perfect example of great sound design in film - thanks to the legend that is Walter Murch. A beautiful, creepy and intense film, one that is often forgotten in place of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now as one of Coppola’s best. David Shire’s score is as much part of it as Gene Hackman and Francis Ford’s wide shots. I bought this for my Dad for Christmas and it was that uneasy, instantly recognisable piano that made it so wonderful to relisten to - and which takes you right back to watching the film. Plug in your headphones and imagine you’re bugging hotel rooms.”
