Millennial Thematic Universe (Soundcast Ep. 91)

Episode 91 - Millennial Thematic Universe
After the video, “MARVEL SYMPHONIC UNIVERSE” by Every Frame A Painting went viral on Youtube in 2016, Christopher Coleman sat down with three family members who are a part of the “Millennial” generation to: talk about their feelings about film, tv, and game music, see how much film music they recognize, and which film composers they are familiar with.  The resulting conversation is an entertaining peek into some of the ways this generation relates to much of the music attached to today's films, TV shows, and video games.  This discussion was recording back in September 2016.
