New Zealand Film Music Bulletin's producer Colin Adamson dies

(0 votes)

RFS members & others in many countries may recall an excellent publication of the 1980s & 90s, ‘New Zealand Film Music Bulletin’ produced by Colin Adamson.  In a period before widespread internet it was a great source of information about who was composing what, new soundtrack releases, & profiles of the top composers of the day.

Sadly, Colin passed away at his home in New Zealand on 12 June after a long illness. He lived in my city & we had known each other since teen years in the late 1950s. His love of Bob’s music & knowledge of light orchestral & film music was encyclopaedic & we shared many happy hours just listening.

Greatly missed.
