    In a 2016 interview on the Hey U Guys entertainment website, Kidder said she thought the first Superman film (1978) would be a "flop." She added, "Nothing prepares anyone for that sudden thing of being world famous. It was such a shock. It wasn't something I really liked or something I was very good at. I didn't realize how good the movie was until I saw it at the premiere in Washington."

    Margot Kidder, Lois Lane in four Superman movies, dies at 69

    SiriusXM's Beatles Channel plays every Beatles song but one: Revolution 9. And that isn't really is a song. It's an eight-and-a-half-minute sound collage put together by John Lennon with some help from George Harrison and Yoko Ono. Matt Marks created an arrangement of Revolution 9 to be performed live. My question is: Why???

    Matt Marks, cutting-edge composer and musician, dies at 38
    New York Times, May 14 2018

    Matt Marks, a composer and musician who was at the epicenter of a diverse community of open-minded artists as a founding member of the contemporary chamber orchestra Alarm Will Sound, died of heart failure May 11 in St. Louis. He was 38.

    As a performer, Marks was known best as a French horn player for Alarm Will Sound, of which he was an integral member. The ensemble has been critically praised and is known for its unusual stylistic breadth and commitment to innovation. When the group ventured further into theatrical concerts and multimedia events, he rose to the occasion as a singer, actor and keyboardist. He also contributed one of the group’s signature pieces: an eerily accurate arrangement for live performers of Revolution 9, the notorious 1968 musique concrète sound collage recorded by the Beatles.

    A diligent musician from 9 years old onward, Marks played in high school bands and pursued his formal education at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, the Royal Academy of Music in London and Stony Brook University on Long Island. Marks co-founded Alarm Will Sound in 2001 and also performed with the International Contemporary Ensemble, Wordless Music Orchestra, the Argento Chamber Ensemble and the Brooklyn Brass Quintet.
