    About Films on Wax

    Films On Wax was created with one express purpose: to further public and critical opinion of film scores through entertainment and education. Growing out of the flames of Entractemag.com, we have steadily grown in our mission to bring our opiate to the masses. One of our goals is to have a variety to our work; while some of our writers have a keen sense of musical knowledge, others concentrate purely on the emotional reaction of a score, and we wish never to alienate a reader who may not be as tuned in to the world of film scores.

    Likewise, we try and discuss film scores in and out of their source material the film itself. However, where our reviews are concerned, we are reviewing film score albums, or soundtracks as they are generally called (I dont like to use that word because it can refer to a great many things). We try to give every composer and every album a fair review, and receive the majority of our albums as promotional copies from the PR company assigned by the composer and/or studio.

    A note on disclosure: I regularly write sales material (and occasionally liner notes) for Death Waltz Recording Co. We do review Death Waltzs albums on Films On Wax, but no differently than for any other album or label, however in the interests of full disclosure I wanted this to be publicly known.

    Charlie Brigden

    Our Writers:

    Charlie Brigden

    Charlie has been obsessed with film scores since their inevitable introduction via Star Wars and Jaws. He lives in the far green country of Wales, and when he isnt writing, editing, or adminning, he is either working in his sadly non-film score related day job or tending to his multiple tarantulas. He is a member of the IFMCA (International Film Music Critics Association).

    Karol Krok
