Welcome to FreeClyde.com

Welcome to FreeClyde.com.  Joel Goldsmith passed away on  April 29th, 2012.  This website is to provide a long standing tribute to music composer Joel who will be missed by many, but his legacy will live on by means of his music.

We must also not forget Jerry Goldsmith, father of Joel, who passed away on July 21st, 2004.

FreeClyde.com was Joel’s official website, which has since expired at the end of March 2014. In order to preserve his memory, FreeClyde.com was acquired at an auction so that a tribute and memorial could be created.

This website is maintained and created by a fan of Joel’s. This website is not related or tied to Joel Goldsmith in any way.



Some of Joel’s works include(in no particular order)

  1. Hi. Is there a way that I can get my hands on

    1) A copy of the SGU soundtrack
    2) The track that plays when the Asgard are met by the humans (sorry for the nerdy lingo, but I’ve been trying to get a hold on this track for a long time).

  2. I was just curious of the circumstances of his death. I am a fan of his and his father’s. Kull the Conquer, great score.

    1. From what I have been able to figure out, he had some form of cancer that perhaps caused some other health issues. Such good people always seem to be punished with medical issues, from what I’ve learned about Joel is that he was a very kind and good-hearted individual.

  3. Anybody know anything about the SGU soundtrack? I continue to hope for an official soundtrack release on what must have gone into some legal limbo at Mr. Goldsmith’s passing. Going on 3 years now…

    1. I’d really like to find out how to make his works become available again to the public. I would like to find a way to contact his family to find out about who is the copyright holder and if I can get a hold of his works to release to the public so that they may be heard. I’d suspect his family becomes the copyright holder of the music since his passing. It would really be great to keep the memory of Mr. Goldsmith alive.
