When it comes to Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek fans tend to love it or hate it, but there’s no denying two things: it was ambitious and featured one hell of a score by the late, great Jerry Goldsmith. Aficionados of that score will be thrilled to hear that La-La Land Records, Sony Music and Paramount Pictures have joined forces on Star Trek: The Motion Picture – The Complete Score, which will be released on June 5.
To help celebrate the release of Star Trek: The Motion Picture – The Complete Score,” fans are invited to attend a special event on June 4 at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood. The Star Trek: The Motion Picture Soundtrack Celebration will feature a live panel discussion moderated by Jeff Bond, CD soundtrack signing, a display of props and costumes from The Motion Picture and a screening of Star Trek: The Motion Picture – The Director’s Edition. Among the special guests slated to attend and participate in the panels and signings are longtime Goldsmith recording engineer Bruce Botnick, Craig Huxley, TMP session violinist David Newman, TMP director of cinematography Richard H. Kline, and Mike Matessino, as well as a few surprises. Advance copies of the soundtrack will be available for purchase at the event.
