The X-Files: The Score
Wow - did I like this movie! Yes I am an X-Files fan, but I am also a Mark Snow fan. Ever since I found out that he was an Oboe Major at Julliard (along with Michael Kamen!) I had to listen to his work. After all I am an oboe player aspiring to be a film composer! The music was great - and it was so nice to see Mark Snow with an orchestra sound! (Don't get me wrong - I like the Synth sounds - but it just doesn't beat the real thing!)
I was a little worried at first. Near the beginning of the film when
the FEMA officials are at the contamination site the music swells up
from nothing in just a few seconds and then back down to nothing - and
the action on the [screen] didn't call for that kind of music. But Mark
Snow improved through the course of the film - my favorite musical scene
being when Mulder and Scully drive off to try to catch up with Phantom
tanker trucks. The "Native American" feel to the orchestration and the
driving rhythm were great for an otherwise boring shot.
