Tracksounds, in cooperation with Soundtracks: The Epic Sound, spotlights some

over time.

July 2001 Soundtracks of the Month

Jurassic Park III
by Don Davis

Jurassic Park III is, at the very least, an interesting listening experience.  Don Davis utilizes at least four of John Williams' familiar themes and motifs.   The score is clearly Williamsesque and for that Davis is to be applauded.  Reproducing Williams' themes is one thing.  Reproducing his style is another.   Be that as it may, this Jurassic Park score is still marked by Davis' own musical signature.

Castaway
by Alan Silvestri

Having to truly communicate the essence of the entire film in just a few moments of music cannot be an easy proposition, but Alan Silvestri manages just that.  Given these circumstances, both Robert Zemeckis and Alan Silvestri deserve a ton of credit for using a minimal amount of music in a most powerful and meaningful way.
