Here today is once again a release of the podcast that aired originally on Cinematic Sound Radio. Listen to the discussion between Erik Woods and myself about the film and score to the 1993 Steven Spielberg groundbreaking action/adventure film, JURASSIC PARK, based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Michael Crichton. The film stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Bob Peck, Martin Ferrero, BD Wong, Samuel L. Jackson, Wayne Knight, Joseph Mazzello and Ariana Richards.
The film takes place on Isla Nublar, located off Central America’s Pacific Coast near Costa Rica. There, wealthy businessman John Hammond and a team of genetic scientists have created a wildlife park of de-extinct dinosaurs. When industrial sabotage leads to a catastrophic shutdown of the park’s power facilities and security precautions, a small group of visitors and Hammond’s grandchildren struggle to survive and escape the perilous island.
The original score for the film was composed and conducted by John Williams, performed by The Hollywood Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. The original soundtrack recording was released on MCA Records in 1993 and was expanded by La La Land Records in 2017 that coupled this score along with Williams’ other score in the series, THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK.
