Different Type of Request

Fellers (and ladies) I have a different sorta question for you.

I got to go to a Warner Bros. Cartoon extravaganza in Charlotte a couple of years ago in their city symphony orchestra's building.  It was a  huge area. They were doing something I haven't seen before...they showed the classic Bugs Bunny cartoons on a large screen, and the Charlotte Symphony orchestra played the music, right there with the silent depiction on the huge screen.  You also got to hear it as recorded all that time ago...and then, the orchestra played the music for us again.  It was fascinating to see and a pleasure to hear.  It was a big deal for the City residents, and the place was jammed.

They explained--- and I don't recall any of the details--- how they obtained the real scores and permissions needed for all of this really super event to happen.  Seeing the orchestra play was a pleasure all in itself.  Man, they were superb!

Where I'm going with this is; I am busting to find a Utube or something showing the music being played way back originally.  I think I read that there is a backdrop at the studios where these are made where a movie or a show is shown and where the orchestra and conductor can see it..and the music is then played by the orchestra for the sound track.  I have seen one glimpse of this  in a news show quite some time ago.  It was a fairly darkened studio while the film shows the action, and the music is pre-composed and distributed to the orchestra.  Then, they begin playing to accompany the move or show.  Or cartoon!  I would love to see an example of that again after all this time.

I have googled my fingers to stubs trying to find the right word combination andI just can't find what I want and I KNOW it has to be out there somewhere.

You guys have ny suggestions as to what a good search phrase might be...if I made it clear what I'm looking for here?

  1. I just went to YouTube and typed in "orchestra scoring for film" and some interesting videos came up...as well as much drek. John Williams is famous for his film scores; maybe a search under his name would help. I hope this helps you some, and good luck!

  7. You want the original music that accompanied the cartoons? I'll try looking, but that will be a touch hunt, I think.
