Stanley Kubric was one of the great filmmakers died in his bed of a heart attack on Sunday morning March 7th 1999 When I first heard the report I blinked twice in disbelief It just seemed WAY too soon to bid good-bye to Stanley Somehow he was one of those people you get to think will always be there And its appealing to have known all these years that up there in Hertsfordshire he was working away on some new project or other SOMEone had been doing something new and special After all creative perfectionists have become nearly an anathema as the centuries increment So much of what we are asked to read to hear to look at even to eat seems the result of expedience a matter of pure commerce Intelligence even touches of genius as he had ample times have become quaint relics of an earlier age Our loss more than you may think I was one of the few artists to have worked more than once with him The experience and memories are indelibly etched on my brain The face-to-face meetings for spotting music to compose for A Clockwork Orange and The Shining couldnt have lasted very much more than a week or two each for me and my then partner and producer Rachel it would be unfair to Rachel to characterize her impressions here and so these are only my observations although she was present and worked with me throughout the details that follow Since my none-too-portable studio was located in New York and Kubrick didnt travel the rest of the collaboration took place via long phone calls and messages express packages of cassettes tapes film and video footage and written memos and notes If faxing had been more available and the Web had existed
