You can watch the final scene of The Legend of Korra, via Nickelodeon.

And you can hear more cues from Jeremy’s score from The Legend of Korra, via his SoundCloud page:

For more, I recommend this Vanity Fair article, “How a Nickelodeon Cartoon Became One of the Most Powerful, Subversive Shows of 2014,” by Joanna Robinson. And it’s pretty fun to watch this YouTube compilation of fan reactions to the finale.

SongExploder29

The Imitation Game is a biographical film about Alan Turing, a mathematician who pioneered computer science and helped the British government break Nazi codes, but was then later prosecuted by the British government for being gay. Composer Alexandre Desplat created the score, which was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Oscar — his eighth Oscar nomination. In this episode, he breaks down the orchestration of the main theme from the film, which plays during the title sequence.

Here’s Alexandre Desplat conducting the London symphony Orchestra performing The Imitation Game Suite:
