New Podcast! The Annotator


Recently, we began a brand new podcast, THE ANNOTATOR, which is unlike any podcast we've done before.  The Annotator focuses on the composer.  No interviewer.  No answering questions.  It's simply the composer telling his or her story about and sharing insights into their original scores.

We are two episodes in, but in case you haven't been able to catch them yet, here they are!

Daniel Pemberton - King Arthur: Legend of the Sword


Oliviere Derivere - Get Even


Hope you will listen and if you enjoy what you hear, let us know and check things out on the official site, TheAnnotator.Net.
