August 26, 2002

It's Mark Snow's birthday and he is turning 56 today! Happy birthday, Mark! :)


July 18, 2002

Mark Snow's score for the two-hour X-Files series finale episode ("The Truth") was nominated today for an "Outstanding Music Composition for a Series" Emmy Award. This is his 12th Emmy nomination since 1984. Full details in the news section.


May 9, 2002

A note from Mark Snow regarding the recent X-Files episode, "Release". (Warning: there are some spoilers!)

"The inspiration for the score to Release was actually the main character! He struck me as such an odd, quiet and eventually sympathetic person. Even though we find out he's escaped from an "institution", I felt he was going to try and help people with his clairvoyant powers until perhaps [a] mental overload happened, and he became afraid of the real world after a while, and had to "go back"!

"The classical style piano theme and the very emotional Doggett's Theme, I thought tied the story up quite well. [Both] sympathetic to the boy and sad for the final discovery and loss of Doggett's son, in a very strange way to me, the cadet almost became a surrogate son to Doggett. And his "removal" by the SWAT team and the last scene on the beach, to me, were both obviously about loss and its consequences.

"Obviously you can tell I was very inspired by the episode! But whatever you do, please don't miss the next show written and directed by Vince Gilligan. Its amazing!"

May 7, 2002

News: Mark Snow received three awards on Tuesday, April 30th at ASCAP's "17th Annual Film and Television Music Awards". Full details in the news section.


April 24, 2002

Filmography: Added two one-hour TV pilots, Fiona (Hudson Productions/Lifetime Television; starring ER's Kellie Martin) and Hack (Big Ticket Television/CBS; starring David Morse and Andre Braugher).

Based on the popular heroine of Warren Adler's mystery novels, Fiona was one of two piloted dramas competing for series commitment and it would have been part of Lifetime's Sunday night lineup. However, the show was dropped in favour of the other pilot, a legal drama called For the People.


March 28, 2002

Filmography: Added The Haunted, a one-hour TV pilot from Viacom Productions and UPN. Michael Rymer (Queen of the Damned) is directing. The pilot revolves around a man (Party of Five's Matthew Fox) who dies and returns, only to find himself haunted by ghosts who help him solve crimes.

The Official X-Files Site launched their exclusive "Scrapbook" last week – it's an online guide that reflects on nine seasons of the show. An interview with Mark Snow is available in the Scrapbook's "Musings on a Phenomenon" section. Mark talks about his X-Files music and feelings regarding the end of the series. He also mentions one of his all-time-favourite episodes, Humbug.

March 15, 2002

An update from Mark Snow – he talks about FOX, current projects (X-Files and Smallville), Post Mortem and Pasadena. More details in the news section.


January 14, 2002

News: The Sydney Morning Herald chose Mark Snow's X-Files theme in its "Top Ten TV themes" list. More details in the news section. Also, Pasadena returns to FOX.

p.s. I have received various e-mails from people about the piano music used in the teaser and 'train station scene' in the recent X-Files episode, "TrustNo1". It is not a Mark Snow composition.

The work is Tchaikovsky's 'Barcarolle in G minor' (also known as 'No. 6: June') from The Seasons Opus 37b and it was performed by Richard Grayson. 'Barcarolle' is part of a collection of twelve characteristic piano pieces composed between December 1875 to November 1876. The Seasons was "part of a commission for an appropriate piano piece for each month of a year's issues of the magazine Nuvellist but Tchaikovsky's interest in the task was purely journalistic, and he composed each piece at a sitting just before press day" (from Warrack, J. 1973. Tchaikovsky. London: Hamish Hamilton. p. 83)

Tchaikovsky's music appears in previous X-Files scores including the episodes Invocation (Swan Lake) and The Post-Modern Prometheus (1812 Overture, which also appears in Snow's score for The Day Lincoln was Shot and the Millennium episode "Lamentation").

Some people wanted to know if there are other piano compositions written by Tchaikovsky that belong to the world of the 'Barcarolle'. Here is a short list: 'October: Autumn Song' Op. 37b (No. 10), 'Romance' Op. 5, 'Nocturne' Op. 19 (No. 4), 'Chanson Triste' Op. 40 (No. 2), 'Aveu Passioni in E minor'.

If you require more information about Tchaikovsky and his piano music, contact me at [email protected]. :)


December 25, 2001

I will be taking a break between Christmas and New Years. 2002 is going to be an interesting year for this site... very interesting. :-)

Happy holidays everyone and be safe!!

p.s. Smallville premieres in the UK on December 31st at 4:45pm on Channel Four. Its regular timeslot will be Wednesdays at 6pm.


November 17, 2001

Finally, I still have to catch up with some e-mails, so I will try to get that done as soon as possible. Enjoy the show tonight! :)

Australian fans: Disturbing Behavior airs on Channel Ten on Sunday, September 30th at 8:30pm AEST.

You won't be able to find these cues on CD. Log on to this site's Mark Snow Discussion Group and click the "Files" section. Only members of the group can gain access to this section. If you are not a member, go ahead and join the group - it's free! Extra, extra special thanks to Ed Bradshaw for these fantastic files!

Updated the Awards & Nominations page.

Just a couple of site-related issues to end today's update. This site was featured in About.com's X-Files section. Also, "The Ultimate Mark Snow Site" is now an X-FilesMusic.com affiliate. Finally, don't forget to sign the "Philes for Scully's Theme" petition! Supporters are nearing 1000 now!

And, finally, you can find a new Trivia note at the bottom of the main page.

April 2, 2001

Things are finally back to normal. I still have to catch up with some e-mails, so I will try to fix that up as soon as possible. Thank you all for your patience, support and understanding during the past month. :)

Small update today. Added two new projects to the filmography section: For the Love of Olivia (CBS; Pat Finnegan, prod. Doug Barr, dir.) and Wolf Lake [1hr pilot] (CBS Productions; Richard Brams/John Leekley, prods.)

Also, there are some new links, including the updated URL of Larold Rebhun's website (he is, of course, Mark's sound engineer).

And, just a note to close today's update: the multimedia section will return later in the year... so, those of you who wrote to me lamenting about the loss of this section can now relax. :)


February 18, 2001
(Due to severe technical problems, this update was delayed. It was uploaded on March 25th.)

Three final sound clips were added to the multimedia section. To end this special section, all of these clips were produced by fans of Mark Snow's work: Excerpt from The X-Files (arranged and performed by Adam Vujic); Starsky and Hutch – Theme (extended, arranged and performed by Keith Prior); and, Millennium: World Serpent (arranged and performed by 'Blithely Menace'). Enjoy!

Plus, check out the results of The 2000 Encore Awards. The X-Files: Within dominated three categories including "Overall Outstanding Score - any year up to and including 2000". Millennium's theme music and The Snow Files CD proved their popularity again this year. The X-Files Movie received the most number of votes in the best film score category. I would like to thank everyone who sent in their votes! It wouldn't have worked without your input. :)

February 11, 2001
(Due to severe technical problems, this update was delayed. It was uploaded on March 13th.)

Three new clips were added to the multimedia section: Harsh Realm – Theme, Hart to Hart – Theme and excerpts from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

Plus, there are two new articles and an interview.

February 4, 2001
(Due to severe technical problems, this update was delayed. It was uploaded on March 10th.)

New multimedia section: it will operate from today to the end of the month only. This section will feature some of the famous music (and rare scores) written by Mark Snow as well as music arranged and performed by several fans.

Today's downloads are the unforgettable Millennium Theme ("Pilot"/End Credits Version) and Snow's Emmy-nominated theme for the sci-fi TV series, Nowhere Man. Enjoy!

Added two articles and an interview which appeared in "The Millennial Comet" in 1998.

February 1, 2001

This month, we will be celebrating Mark Snow's cameo performance in The X-Files by presenting some real treats.

The fun begins today with some new articles and reviews. Highlights include Film Score Monthly's unpublished Harsh Realm article and "The X-Files Movie: Big Ideas, Big Film, Big Sound" article
from LA Times.

Have you seen The Dancing Cow? Mark Snow wrote a quirky score for this award-winning short comedy film in 1999. If you didn't see it at several film festivals or on the free DVD released last year, then check the news section to find out how you can watch it for free on your computer.

The results of "The 2000 Encore Awards" will be revealed on February 18th.


January 22, 2001

Big update today. First up, "The 2000 Encore Awards". Slightly later than the previous year, and I apologize for that. But finally, it's here and for the next four weeks, you can vote for your favourite Mark Snow scores and CDs. The voting information can be found in "The 2000 Encore Awards" section. So start sending in those votes! :)

You may remember that this site was going to launch another campaign next week – this time for an X-Files soundtrack CD. I can inform you that this won't be happening. It appears that Fox have their own ideas and no matter what the fans do, they will continue to ignore us. Fox has decided not to allow Mark release the Millennium CD or any future X-Files soundtracks on his own. I'm assuming that this will also apply to Harsh Realm and the upcoming Lone Gunmen series. However, there is some good news... You can read the whole drama, complete with comments from Mark's manager, in the news section.

January 11, 2001

Happy New Year! Yes, I'm finally back from my vacation... you can now stop those "Where are you?" e-mails. :) 2001 is going to be a busy year for this site – in fact, you might have noticed a few things already, such as the site's new appearance. "The 2000 Encore Awards" begins on the 15th, so make sure you take part in that. The other big event of the month is "The X-Files CD Campaign" (late-January). Other things to look out for include: "Behind the Scenes" (a section dedicated to the people who work with Mark Snow) and "The Snowdens" (a section about an online Mark Snow discussion group).

The news section was updated today. Find out the latest news regarding the Millennium soundtrack CD. Other new additions include several articles and pictures.

That's all for now. :)


December 18, 2000

This is the final update for 2000. The next update will be on January 11th. "The 2000 Encore Awards" was supposed to commence on December 20th this event has been pushed back to January 15th 2001.

The filmography section was updated today. Australian fans: The Essential X-Files continues this week with "How the Ghosts Stole Christmas" (December 20th on Channel 10 at 9:30pm). Future episodes include "Bad Blood", "Dreamland 1 & 2" and "Triangle".

That's it for now. Happy Holidays! :-)

December 9, 2000

Some exciting news for fans: Mark Snow will be appearing in a future episode of The X-Files!! More about that in the news section. There is also some news about two Mark Snow-related projects, Giants: Citizen Kabuto and The Dancing Cow.

Australian fans: The excellent X-Files episode, "Paper Hearts", airs on December 13th on Channel 10 at 9:30pm. The final episode of Harsh Realm airs on December 16th at 12:10am. So, stay up late on Friday night and this is on Channel 7, of course.

December 5, 2000

Encore: The Ultimate Mark Snow Site has been online exactly one year today. :)

November 24, 2000

Just a few reminders for Australian fans:

Harsh Realm's "Reunion" airs tonight at 11:55pm AEDT on Seven/Prime. The second last episode of this show, "Cincinnati", airs on December 2nd at midnight (so stay up late on Friday night :) Channel 10's The Essential X-Files begins on November 29th at 9:30pm with "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose".

November 16, 2000

Well, the chat didn't take place because Mark couldn't make it. :(

The music in the first two episodes of The X-Files, known as "Scully's Theme", caused some furious discussions. Some people hate it while others are flooding my mailbox with these types of comments: "That music is great!", "Where can I find it?" and "Is it on CD?". I was told that the music was composed by Mark Snow. You won't be able to find it on CD but, if you are really desperate, an illegal MP3 of this music is available somewhere on the Net (and, no, I don't have the URL).

"Blithely Menace" recently completed the "m=1000" Millennium tribute. An archive of the whole program will be available for a limited time at http://www.foundrysite.com/millennium/index.html, so if you haven't checked it out, do it now. Personally, I think this is a terrific project and it is a great way to say "Thank you" to the cast and crew of Millennium. If you are a fan of Mark's work, you will find this tribute extremely moving. Enjoy it. :)

Australian fans: Harsh Realm's "Three Percenters" airs tomorrow (Nov 17th) at 11:45pm AEDT on Seven/Prime. The next Harsh Realm episode, "Reunion", airs on Nov 24th at 11:55pm AEDT.

November 2, 2000

Just a few reminders:

The Mark Snow chat will take place at 6pm ET/3pm PT on November 3rd (US time) at The Official X-Files Site. Australian fans, that will be Saturday, November 4th at 10am AEDT. To check what time it will take place in your area, check the Time Zone Converter.

For Australian fans, Harsh Realm's fourth episode, "Kein Ausgang", airs on November 3rd at 11:40pm AEDT. Secrets of a Married Man, one of Mark's very early projects, airs on the same day and network at noon. The next Harsh Realm episode, "Manus Domini", airs on Saturday 11th at 12:10am (so stay up late on Friday night).

That's it for now. Don't forget to ask Mark some really good questions. :)


October 28, 2000

I have been hearing rumours that Mark Snow is doing the next Halloween movie. I cannot confirm this but I will try to get some more info. I can, however, tell you that John Ottman is not doing the music (he did the previous Halloween movie).

The biggest news at the moment is the chat at the Official X-Files Site. This will take place on November 3 (US time), so don't forget to check that out. Tell him that we need more of his music on CD! :) The last time Mark did an online chat was in 1999 at scifi.com.

I've added a new picture to the Gallery. It comes from this year's ASCAP awards, and as always, thanks to ASCAP for the picture.

Finally, a note for Australian Mark Snow fans: Harsh Realm: "Kein Ausgang" airs on November 3rd at 11:40pm AEDT. Secrets of a Married Man, one of Mark's early projects, airs on the same day and network at noon.

October 2, 2000

I'm back after taking a long break... Weren't the Olympics absolutely fantastic? If you were not in Sydney, then you missed all the fun. :) Off topic discussion, I know, but it is the greatest thing that we've had here (the next greatest thing is the New Year celebrations, of course).

Anyway, back to the site and Mark Snow news. Australian 1013 fans will finally get the chance to see Carter's third creation, Harsh Realm, although it's in a really bad timeslot. I don't really need to say who did the music. :)


September 13, 2000

The mini-series, Sole Survivor (nothing to do with that other Survivor series), airs tonight and Thursday on Fox at 8pm. I haven't heard the score yet, but someone told me that it sounds a bit like Mark's music for The X-Files. Don't miss it!

September 3, 2000

Australian fans, don't forget watch the two TV-movies on Monday (The Mysterious Murder of Thelma Todd) and Tuesday (Battling for Baby). These two TV-Movies fall into Mark's "Pre-X Music" category.

Also, ABC Classic FM's Knowing the Score program is looking at the new "Mega Movies" CD and Mark's "Threnody in X" (from the X-Files Movie) is one of the featured tracks.


August 26, 2000

Happy Birthday to Mark Snow!! He turns 54 today. :) Also, the winners of the Creative Arts Awards will be announced tonight. Just in case you didn't know, Mark received a nomination in the "Outstanding Music Composition for a Dramatic Series" category. This is his eleventh Emmy nomination and, hopefully, they will give the award to him. He truly deserves it and wouldn't it be the best present for him this year?? Encore: The Ultimate Mark Snow Site will be following this event very closely and you can find the results here as soon as the winner is announced.

Update: And the Creative Arts Emmy goes to... Joseph LoDuca for Xena: "Fallen Angel".

It was a tough one again this year, folks. There were some really good scores in this category and although I thought The X-Files: "Theef" had an excellent score, I guess the voters didn't feel the same way about it. Anyway, at least Mark Snow was nominated and that's much better than nothing. So, congratulations to Joseph, Mark and the other nominees in the category! :)

August 3, 2000

Just a small update today. Added some news about Dark Realm. Plus, I've changed the "Mark Snow TV Alerts (Australia)" into "Dates To Remember". This section will now feature the most significant events/alerts for both Australia and the United States. Unfortunately, I can't list every alert in here, especially from the US, because I simply don't have enough resources or time. But, I'll try my best and I would really appreciate any help/info too. Thanks! :)

August 2, 2000

Wow, it's August already! Mark's birthday is only 24 days away... Big news update today, and I'm so sorry for not putting this up earlier. I have really been busy with work and life away from the Net. The most significant news is The Dancing Cow on free DVDs. Mark did the score for this short film, in case you were wondering. You can read about this plus some other bits and pieces in the news section. Keep sending in those CD Label suggestions. Thanks to all who have submitted their thoughts already and you can still send in some more if you want to. :)


July 28, 2000

Check the news section to find out what is Mark's latest project. Also, I've added another photo to the gallery (thanks to Daniel for that!). And, finally, keep sending in those suggestions.

July 24, 2000 (edited)

Okay, people... put your thinking caps on. Robert Urband, Mark's manager, wants your input! Input for what? Well, keep reading. :) Here's a message from Robert himself:

I would like to thank all the fans out there who raised my awareness of the need for a Millennium CD. With that ammunition I have been successful in getting the usually apathetic bureaucracy at Fox to grant Mark and myself a license to distribute the record. This will be the first release on the label and we have not even named the label yet. Any suggestions from the fans?

Thanks again,
Robert


You can send in all your thoughts and ideas to me. All comments will be sent to Robert, just like the results of the Millennium CD Campaign. Good luck! :-)

July 22, 2000

This is perhaps the most exciting week of the month, and for Millennium and Mark Snow fans, it's definitely the most exciting day of the year. More excellent news! First Mark's Emmy nomination and now this: A Millennium Score CD will be released! Here is the info:

20th Century Fox has agreed to allow Mark Snow to release a soundtrack CD from Millennium. We will advise you when it will be and where it will be available.

Sincerely,
Robert Urband
Dictated but not read
(Sandra Cortez - Executive Assistant to Robert Urband)

Well, what can I say? :) I'm speechless, ecstatic, "over the moon" (you get the point). If you want to contact Mark's manager, here are the vital details:

Robert Urband & Associates, Inc.
831 South Spaulding Avenue
Los Angeles, CA
90036 323-933-1700 (Phone)
323-933-1155 (Fax)

The Millennium CD Campaign is, obviously, over now. I must thank everyone who filled in the campaign form from all corners of the world. It just proves that Millennium still has a strong and devoted fanbase, despite its cancellation more than a year ago.

Special thanks to Stephen and Jaquandor for posting the details of this campaign to the newsgroups. :-)

July 20, 2000

Great news everyone! Mark was nominated today for an "Outstanding Music Composition" Emmy Award. This is his eleventh Emmy nomination and you check out all the details in the news section. I've also updated the awards and nominations page to include this excellent news.

You can also check out the other Mark Snow-related Emmy nominations in the news section. Also, don't forget to listen to this week's Soundtrack Cinema, produced and hosted by Ford Thaxton. It features some steamy music including Mark's La Femme Nikita theme.

July 18, 2000

The Millennium CD Campaign begins today!

July 6, 2000

Redesigned the filmography, discography, reviews & interviews/transcripts sections. I've also added some more articles, interviews, chat transcripts and reviews. Plus, I've added a little more info to the awards and nominations page.


June 27, 2000

Added a new "Trivia" note, changed the "Featured Item" for this week and the TV Alerts have been updated too. That's about it for now.

June 8, 2000

News, news, news... Mark's doing something interesting for Cosmonova. More about that, The Dancing Cow and two new Australian X-Files videos in the news section.

There is a new "Featured Item" for this week and it contains one of Mark's best TV compositions. I'll be putting in some really good stuff in this section in the next few weeks as we wait for the announcement of this year's Emmy nominations.


May 27, 2000

A new era... a new look... a new atmosphere. Is this beginning to sound corny? Definitely. So, I'll go straight to the point. Welcome to the new "Encore"! You may, or may not, notice the changes... the biggest difference is the server. I am no longer using Tripod. I know some of you out there are not too happy with Geocities and their ads but I can't do anything about that. I'm too broke to get my own ad-free server. The slightly good news is, if you have a 4.0+ browser, you won't get a pop-up ad. All you will see is that Ad-Square at the top right-hand corner of the page. I'm sorry folks if you are using older browsers. The pop-ups will appear if you are using a browser under 4.0+

The second major change is the site content and layout. If you've visited this site before the change, you may have noticed that I'm now using a lot of red, orange, yellow and white. Why? I have no idea. :) Some sections are no longer available, for example, the "Multimedia" section. Some sections have been moved to different locations like "What's New?". And other sections have new names, for example, "Pictures" is now known as the "Gallery".

I don't want this introduction to become an essay, so I'll start to wrap this up. I hope you will enjoy the new Encore: The Ultimate Mark Snow Site. I'm always adding and improving things, so make sure you bookmark this site. Look out for a very special section dedicated to the people who work "behind-the-scenes" – the talented people who help and work with Mark Snow. It's coming soon to this site only.

May 26, 2000

Almost completed... just putting some final touches. The site should be up and running during the coming weekend. I hope you all like it! :)


April 23, 2000

Believe it or not, the new site is still under construction. I've been too busy with work. But I'm sure the Easter break will give me some time to complete most sections of the website. Happy Holidays! :)

April 9, 2000

Yes, I'm still working on the new site... thanks for your patience! :)

This website will be moving to a new server in a few weeks. I'm still working on the new look with some new material. Wow, I've used the word "new" three times in two sentences. As you can see, my brain is a little dead at the moment – thanks to all this HTML business.

March 2, 2000

I'm thinking of moving to a new location. I'll let you know what happens...


February 5, 2000

I'm back! I know the results for The 1999 Encore Awards should've been put up a few days ago. :) Thanks to everyone who bothered to vote. I've updated the filmography section and added the February 2000 schedule. Plus, check out the new multimedia clip for the month!


January 15, 2000

Redesigned the entire filmography section. Plus, I've added lots of new info to that page. This is currently the most complete Mark Snow filmography list on the Internet! Enjoy. :) I've also added two articles and more info to the biography section. Fixed up a few things in the discography section. Also, I've redesigned this area.

January 4, 2000

I'm back! Giants: Citizen Kabuto... delayed... again! Read it in the news section. I've recently received a request to put up Millennium's "trademark thump" sound effect. It's available now in the multimedia section. Plus, I've joined two webrings: "Unofficial Channels" and "The X-Files and Millennium Webring".

Happy New Year from Australia!! :-) We had the BEST fireworks here but Paris and London were excellent too. Anyway... I've actually updated this site! Can you believe that? And, believe it or not, I do have a life away from this computer. The interviews, articles, filmography and discography sections have their own pages now. Plus, I've done some minor HTML changes to several pages. Added the new biography section. Well, I think that's more than enough for now. I'm going offline for the next few days... more parties to attend! :) Hope you all have a great new year!


December 20, 1999

It's finally here! The 1999 Encore Awards! Vote for your favorite Mark Snow scores and CDs. Plus, I've added some recent news... Good AND bad news. Check it out.

December 16, 1999

On January 1st, 2000, the multimedia section of this site will be modified – almost every sound file will be taken down. I'm doing this because I don't want to take the risk of being sued. I will, however, feature one or two multimedia clips for each month of the year (or more if I get special requests for specific files). I'm so sorry about this because I know many people love downloading sound files – especially the Millennium theme :) But, until companies like Fox realise that fans are here to promote their shows for free, this section will be cut down to avoid any legal threats. Anyway... Mark Snow will be giving a lecture at next year's Game Developers Conference. Read it in the news section. I've added more links and "Sci-Fi's Greatest Hits Vol.2: The Dark Side" and "Winter Solstice on Ice" are now included in the discography section. Also, The Father Clements Story, Vietnam War Story and The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw were added to the filmography section.

December 12, 1999

Well, it's finally here and I'm really happy about it. Check out the merchandise page! Another section is also available on the site – "Mark Snow Schedule & Media Alerts". At the moment, this section is useful only for American and Australian readers.

December 5, 1999

Bad news: Straczynski/Carter project cancelled! More about it in the news page.

December 1, 1999

Check the news page for some excellent Mark Snow news!


November 25, 1999

So what's new? Well, the whole site is new! :) Most sections are up but expect more stuff to appear in the next few weeks. So make sure you come back to check them out! The filmography section lists practically every project Snow has been involved with. Right now, this list is more complete than the popular Internet Movie Database Mark Snow page. Movies such as Ernest Saves Christmas were not included in any online Snow film lists. So, thanks to a few libraries and a couple of CDs, I've been able to find more info. Isn't it great to use books once in a while, instead of the internet? :) I've been searching high and low for information on Snow's earlier works, and I think I'm still missing one or two obscure television projects. All of Mark's CDs and LPs have been listed including "The New York Rock and Roll Ensemble" albums that I found. Like I said earlier, this is probably the only site out there at the moment with the most complete Mark Snow info. And I'm not saying that just because it sounds good! :)

So sit back, and continue to check out the rest of the site. Enjoy!

P.S. The 1999 Encore Awards are coming soon – late December 1999. Make sure you enter your votes for many categories including "Best CD release" and "Best Television Series Theme"!
