The clip features interviews with Derek Watkins, a trumpet player on all 23 of the 007 outings, and composer Thomas Newman. Oscar nominee Newman, a regular collaborator with Sam Mendes, is working on his first Bond score with Skyfall.
"It makes you want to move. It's just classic and iconic," Newman said of Monty Norman's James Bond theme. "You have to honour that, there's just something about it that plugs right in.
"Sometimes there are moments when you look out and see people moving bows across strings and playing the Bond theme. Here I am conducting, and you really do think about this - the legacy of Bond [that] I've been lucky enough to be a part of."
Newman's video blog follows on from Skyfall preview clips about the Shanghai location shoot and designing suits for star Daniel Craig.
Skyfall will open in UK cinemas on October 26 and November 9 in the US.
