Caledonia Skytower at SL20B — Sunday 2nd July, 3pm

This show is now avail­able on Mixcloud!

Sun­day 2nd July, 3pm SLT: Join our star pre­sen­ter Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er for an hour of selec­tions from motion pic­ture and tele­vi­sion sound­tracks that look to the future — includ­ing the works of Alexan­der Courage, Jer­ry Gold­smith, Michael Giachi­no, John Williams and more! LIVE from the Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio exhib­it at the Sec­ond Life 20th Birth­day cel­e­bra­tions! Be there in per­son — or tune in to Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio for the live broadcast!

Host Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er explores our fas­ci­na­tion with space through pop­u­lar enter­tain­ment, focus­ing pri­mar­i­ly on the music of Star Trek and Star Wars. These fer­tile fran­chis­es, each with their own rocky begin­nings, have had a major impact on the enter­tain­ment indus­try and pop­u­lar cul­ture as they con­tin­ue to hon­or their begin­nings and explore new paths. Strap on your light saber and pre­pare to beam-up for an hour of glo­ri­ous music of The Stars!

Here’s your trans­porta­tion… and talk­ing of trans­porta­tion, while you’re there, why not hop on a sky­cy­cle and see the exhi­bi­tion from a dif­fer­ent angle?

Today, join us for a pro­gramme of music from movie and TV sound­tracks — and now we’re includ­ing some gam­ing sound­tracks, which have become as sophis­ti­cat­ed as movie scores in recent years and include some of the same composers.

Movies are where most peo­ple hear orches­tral music these days, and there will be plen­ty of that in this pro­gramme. But movie music is a much broad­er field than that, and today you’ll hear music from the movies of many dif­fer­ent kinds, from the very start of the genre (with Camille Saint-Saens) to the lat­est block­busters; from orches­tral music to rock, to Fifties songs. There is a slight bias towards fan­ta­sy and SF movies, but nev­er mind, we all need a bit of an escape these days.…
