Re: Meet The Artist Interview Suggestion - Guy Michelmore
I\'m always interested in interviews of composers working in film and television.
One \'small screen\' composer I have never seen interviewed is Christopher Stone.
He was really a pioneer in using samples for orchestral work. He was the first to use the old EMULATOR II and helped EMU develop the first orchestral sounds for it, I understand. Some of them bear his name in the old EMU library.
Over the years he was also responsible for orchestral sampling on the SYNCLAVIER and had a personal library for that machine which was used by several other composers too, like Richard Band.
It was a groundbreaking library at that time but was not commercially available to my knowledge.
This information is all I have been able to glean on the man from an old magazine (an how accurate it is, I cannot say). It would be interesting to know what he uses now.
I suppose I should have posted this request for an interview seperately!
