Goldsmith vs. Jones.
Ron Jones has said that one of the major influencers on his work was Jerry Goldsmith. The latter brought fans incredible scores for film’s such as Star Trek: The Motion Picture, The Final Frontier, and First Contact, as well as the Emmy Award-winning theme from Star Trek: Voyager. The former was a prolific composer of the music that brought TNG to life.
In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala compares the plots of and scores for the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Datalore” and the 1979 Sci-Fi/Horror film Alien, which was scored by Goldsmith. He also conducts an in-depth analysis of the themes and motifs used by Ron Jones in the music of “Datalore.”
