    Randy Newman to Discuss Film Music in KPCC "AirTalk" Event Webcast Live
    Robb Bradley

    Randy Newman will join Larry Mantle, host of KPCC's AirTalk, for a live broadcast event from The Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena, California, this evening at 6:30 PM PST. The event is an in-depth discussion about the state of contemporary film music and how the business is changing. Newman will be joined for the discussion by fellow composers Michael Giacchino (Lost), David Newman (Heathers), and Trevor Rabin, formerly of the band Yes. While the live event is currently at capacity, music and film fans around the world can watch it all unfold as AirTalk and Southern California Public Radio host a video webcast of the event live. Tune in this evening at scpr.org.

    A celebrated songwriter since the 1960s, Randy Newman began a career as a film composer in the early 1980s. His film include Ragtime, Leatherheads, and Meet the Parents; for Pixar, he scored Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., Cars, and Toy Story 3. His film work has garnered 20 Oscar nominations and two Academy Awards for Best Original Song.

    Newman's latest album is Live in London, released late last year on Nonesuch Records. While touring in support of his 2008 album Harps and Angels, Randy Newman performed a special concert at London’s intimate LSO St. Luke’s accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra led by Robert Ziegler. The program, featuring songs from throughout Newman’s career, was televised by the BBC and is available on the Live in London CD+DVD along with an interview from the BBC broadcast. The Sunday Times of London says: "Essential listening for anyone who cares about the art of songwriting." To pick up a copy, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include MP3s of the album at checkout.
