Midnight Special

Thursdays 11-1am

A late night talk show that changes every week with a new host and a different topic.

Special guest/s will hang out live in studio, providing good chat and occasional performances between tunes. Or there’ll be a music-themed focus with a presenter taking the listener through a particular genre, era, band, geographical location, etc. We’ve had chefs talk about their favourite tunes, sound collage interviews about dreams, audio recordings from festivals, podcast episodes about MIDI tunes, on-air live karaoke, movie soundtrack focused shows, and so much more!

Whatever the week, you can always count on it being something special!

Forget sleep, stay up, and listen to the Midnight Special On RTRFM.

For tonight's episode, we will be interviewing musician and artist Chris Cobilis about composing the score for the new Australian film, 1%, written by Matt Nable and directed by Stephen McCallum.

Chris Cobilis is known in the Perth music scene for many different things. A member of The Tigers and their rock off-shoot Sabre Tooth Tigers, Cobilis has also played drums in SMRTS and Zerodent, played extensively solo, and recently released an album that Funniest Home Videos into an experimental score played by Spektral Quartet and narrated by Kenneth Goldsmith. That album, This Is You, you can find on Chris Cobilis bandcamp.

1% is a new Australian film that focuses on a bikie gang, the Copperheads. While their leader, Knock (Matt Nable) has been in prison, Paddo (Ryan Corr) has kept the club active and earning. When Knock is released and resumes being President, various things conspire to force Paddo into a confrontation with Knock including Paddo's Lady Macbeth styled girlfriend played by Abbey Lee. 1% was released into Australian cinemas this week, and for the Midnight Special, as well as my own interest in movie soundtracks, we were fortunate to get the chance to talk to Chris about scoring a film as well as hear his own personal favourite movie scores that have inspired and influenced him.
