A few facts and figures about me:

What got me into soundtracks:
While I was already familiar with some classic scores that I was playing at my hometown local band (Lawrence of Arabia, Jurassic Park, Robin Hood, Dance with the wolves, to name a few), it is watching and hearing Star Wars for the first time that made me fall in this wonderful world. The perfect alliance of Williamsí magical themes accompanying this tale of adventures has been a turning point of my teenage years.

Number of Soundtracks in my collection: 400+
All CD releases. I am always a little bit frustrated by the slow disappearance of the physical support and the easy way to buy music online (although I very much appreciate the availability of the music for a first listening before a purchase). For me, nothing is quite as enjoyable than searching a forgotten gem in the messy shelves of a second-hand CD store.
Film Music Concert/event I have been to: 35 (in 11 different country)
In the past few years, I have been more and more looking for the opportunity to listen and see live the magicians who composed the music I love. So, I have been attending more and more concerts and conferences, where I have had the chance to listen to their music, their experience and even shake a few hands, exchange a few words or take a picture next to our heroes.
Another hobby of mine being to travel and discover new places & cultures, Iíve been able to conciliate both passions, going to concerts in nice locations during various holidays and weekends!

Favorite Composers/Scores:
Too hard to choose, there are so many good scores I love. But the composer that got me hooked at the very beginning were: John Williams, James Horner, Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, Ennio Morricone, Danny Elfman and Jerry Goldsmith. But again, the list has considerably expanded since those early days.
And if really I had to give the scores to which I am the more connected to emotionally, I would say "the land before time" & "Star Wars trilogy".

Filmtracks:
I canít recall the first time Iíve been checking Filmtracks. I believe it must have been sometimes around 2004 and it has played a big part in building my collection (thanks to the samples available with the reviews at that time) and processing lots of valuable information on the film music industry. I have come to know many other websites, but it still remains the main one I consult on a daily basis. Through the year, this very forum also became a very valuable source of information. So after years lurking around, here I am joining the club!

My other main film music resources:
*Movies in Concert: www.moviesinconcert.nl - also checked on a daily basis, the site references film music concert all around the world.
*Underscores: www.underscores.fr Ė French film music website
*Movie Music UK: www.moviemusicuk.us
*Movie Wave: www.movie-wave.net
*Cinematic Sound Podcast: www.cinematicsound.net Ė Just love Erikís show. I often discover or change my mind (in the good way) about scores while listening to his show (Fantastic Beasts, Metsan Tarina, El Cid or, most recently, the miracle season), and always like the trivia.
