  • Michael Nyman’s music is wonderful. I know it has been the thing to sneer at “movie composers”, but I was lucky enough to play on the scoring sessions for “Gattaca” & that is still a beautiful musical memory of mine.

  • Happy 70th B’day to my friend, Michael Nyman! His fellow Brit, Keith Emerson, tags along behind him turning 70 next November! It’s a good year! A very happy birdthay to these wonderful composers–and good luck to Val!
