Last week's episode of The X-Files is one fans will, no doubt, never forget. I mean, how can any of us erase from our minds the image of Fox Mulder tripping on mushrooms and proceeding to perform a country western dance? What you may not have realized at the time, though, was how four different, well-known pieces of music were weaved together to create a not inexpensive backdrop to that sequence — "Somethin' Bad" by Miranda Lambert (featuring Carrie Underwood), "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus, "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" by Trace Adkins and "Misery Is the River of the World" by Tom ...

Many moments of the show are still vivid in all fans mind thanks to the music, for example the "Scully's Theme" that plays during the pregnancy story arc. In order to get to orchestrate music like this, do you get inspiration from pictures or is that a separated creative process? I was inspired for "Scully's Theme" from the incredible emotion of the story. I actually felt like part of Scully's family, and it was almost a religious experience for me, and how great that I was able to use a live singer! The "Teaser" from "Trust no 1" episode, which music is based on works such as Tcha ... [Continua a leggere]
Molti momenti della serie sono rimasti nella memoria di tutti anche grazie ai commenti musicali, ad esempio il "Tema di Scully" che accompagna l'arco di storia della gravidanza di Scully. Per comporre brani come questi, ha tratto ispirazione dalle immagini o è stato un processo creativo separato? Per il “Tema di Scully" ho preso ispirazione dall’incredibile emozione della storia. Mi sono sentito davvero parte della famiglia di Scully, è stata un’esperienza quasi religiosa per me, ed è stato grandioso essere in grado di lavorare con una cantan ... [Continua a leggere]
The composer talks scoring the latest film based on the FBI duo
If FBI Agents Mulder and Scully have been irrevocably affected by their time spent investigating the dark world of THE X-FILES, then Mark Snow’s ominous music for the series and its spin-off films has done much to welcome us to their nightmares. Whether dealing with mutants, aliens, mind control or black oil, Snow’s soundscapes were some of the eeriest, and most inventive music on alien invasion television since the days of THE OUTER LIMITS. And when Mulder and Scully leapt to the bigscreen with FIGHT THE FUTURE, Snow showed off his symphonic chops with a score that took THE X ... [Continua a leggere]

His latest show with Chris Carter (Harsh Realm) debuts in the Fall and his feature Crazy in Alabama marks the directorial debut of Antonio Banderas and a foray into dark comedy.

MARK Snow is one of the most important contributors to the hit Fox series “The X-Files,” but he’s never appeared in an episode, never directed one and never written a single plot twist for the show’s famously bizarre stories. Snow, a Brooklyn kid transplanted to the West Coast, is the music-driven series’ chief composer. While “The X-Files” promises that “The truth is out there” and explores the possibility of alien life on Earth, Snow is decidedly grounded in his own life. He’s a Juilliard graduate who has written for & ... [Continua a leggere]
Andrián Pertout speaks with Mark Snow from Los Angeles about life as a screen composer, and the soundtrack to the ‘Fight the Future’ X-Files movie.
Composer and seven-time Emmy nominee Mark Snow’s musical genesis was officially initiated in Brooklyn in his early teens, and with the dual blessing of pianist mother and drummer father, the career of one of film music’s great inspirational forces of the 90s was set in motion. He began as a piano student, and in his early development also embraced the art drumming, although in the years that followed the oboe became his principal artistic voice, and Mark went on to explore its expressive boundaries through performances in Baroque and Renaissance music concerts. It was a ... [Continua a leggere]

Composer Mark Snow puts the super-shivers in a very hot sci-fi show.
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Aliens don’t give Mulder and Scully the quivers on The X-Files. What really jangles the daring FBI duo is composer Mark Snow’s moody music score. Right now, Snow is busy spooking up X-Files’ fourth season of paranormal pursuits in his cozy home studio in Santa Monica. He’s also scoring the first season of Millennium, the apocalyptic saga of serial killers from X-Files creator Chris Carter, premiering Friday on Fox.
