Our journey through Jerry Goldsmith's contributions to The Twilight Zone (the TV series, anyway – give us a few* years and we'll get to the movie) concludes in epic fashion with a plus-sized installment featuring TWO special guests. This time, we're taking a look at the iconic episode "The Invaders," a nearly dialogue-free affair that proves an exceptional canvas for Goldsmith's suspenseful music. The first portion of our program features a conversation with Oscar-nominated composer David Newman and esteemed film music producer/liner note writer Jeff Bond, who discuss the virtues of this classic episode, David's memories of conducting Goldsmith's music for "The Invaders" live to picture, what makes Goldsmith such a remarkable composer, the musical storytelling techniques that set great composers apart, and much more. Afterwards, Jeff joins your humble hosts David, Yavar, and Clark for our usual track-by-track examination of the score. It's a long episode, yes, but both of our guests have an abundance of compelling insights that you won't want to miss. Enjoy!
