There is a very active usenet newsgroup devoted to film music called:


This newsgroups is widely read by a number of professionals in the field of film scoring and a wide range of collectors.

It's an excellent place to ask questions about various soundtracks and scores, as well as to locate hard to find soundtracks.




The best way to contact a composer is by writing to their performing rights society like ASCAP or BMI.

To find out if the composer you want to reach is a member one or the other just look at the credits of their CD's, most say if they are with BMI or ASCAP.

I'd include a short cover letter to the people asking them to forward you letter to the composer in question.

Here's the snail mail address's for both in LA and a break down of who belongs to which company.

James Horner (ASCAP)
Danny Elfman, (BMI)
Hans Zimmer (BMI)
James Newton Howard (ASCAP)
and John Barry (BMI)

Promotional Albums offer lesser celebrated film composers the opportunity to bring their work (often of good quality but unsung [if you will forgive the pun]) to the attention of prospective producers who might be interested in contracting them for film scoring assignments. Another market opportunity is for short films, trailers, commercials, and other theatre and TV projects where producers with limited budgets might be interested in buying material "off the shelf." Lastly, film music buffs who have admired the scores but hitherto have never had an opportunity of acquiring the music now have an opportunity of buying scores they have admired. For instance anybody who liked Hummie Mann's music for Mel Brook's farce, Dracula, Dead and Loving It (with Leslie Nielsen) can now buy it from specialist sellers such as
