Interview: Starr Parodi - In this 8 July 2007 interview we meet
piano impressionist Starr Parodi. Starr Parodi and her
husband Jeff Eden Fair are a devoted husband-and-wife
team that produces music for film. They are known for an
impressive array of Hollywood’s most visible trailers,
from their highly successful arrangement & production of
the James Bond Theme, for which they received a gold
record, and The Last Samurai, to Failure To Launch, The
Last Holiday, War of the Worlds, X-Men 3, V for
Vendetta, etc... "Scoring for film is a discovery
process," says Parodi. "The most important thing is to
hold on to that first gut feeling you have about a film,
and then allow yourself to discover the deeper layers of
each scene & how music can help convey that discovery."
Starr’s new CD is Common Places. Inspired by a deep
relationship with her 1928 Steinway grand piano that
once adorned the legendary MGM sound stage in its most
glorious era, Common Places echoes with neo-classical,
Americana, gospel and cinematic themes all played as
"stream of consciousness" improvisations.
