Über Alan Silvestri
Have you ever found yourself watching 1984's epic film Romancing The Stone and thought, "Who the hell threw down this brilliant score to compliment Robert Zemeckis' exquisite cinematography?" Well, gentle reader, you can now revel in the delights of knowledge, for it was none other than Alan Silvestri. Oh, but it didn't stop there. For as careers seem to snowball in the magic city of Hollywood, so too did Silvestri's. A year later, he found himself donning headphones and waving the conductor's wand on the set of Back to the Future. The weight of the project was so intense that he took three years off until he found himself at the mixing board once again, this time scoring the classic film Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. From there, his "snowball" exploded into an avalanche of opportunity, with Silvestri doing the scores for Forrest Gump, What Lies Beneath, Flight of the Navigator, Predator (but not Alien vs. Predator, which was scored by the lionhearted Marco Beltrami), The Abyss (but not Ghosts of the Abyss, which was scored by the illustrious Joel McNeely), The Bodyguard, and The Quick and the Dead.
