How black and white must your worldview be when not calling Lego Batman ONE OF THE GREATEST ANIMATION SCORES OF ALL TIME is called  "hatred". Believe it or not there is a bit of a spectrum between BEST EVER and WORST EVER. Although I imagine that's news to quite a lot of the people who frequent this site.Leave it to discuss the Lego score on the page reserved for it.<br><br>These comments about Balfe popping up everywhere are annoying.<br><br><br><br><br> <br>It's a bit annoying that every time I want to read some comments about the Wonder Woman soundtrack and click on a picture all I can read are praises for the Lego Batman score.<br><br>Please talk about Lego Batman in the Lego Batman section and keep this topic for Wonder Woman's music - which is not bad at all, by the way.Legobatman was fun score . I don't understand why some are mean about it . It's better than most Marvel scores and very memorable . Looking forward to his next animation filmNeither am I ? Lego Batman had cool music . Loved the songs also .
The emotional music in Lego Batman was some of the best writing was fantastic . Not sure why there is hatred for the sound track ? I only came across this web site because of Balfes music ....and some insights to the first POTC score. Seems he really did a lot for it. Interesting how no one really mentions Klaus Badelt beside lots of name dropping of other composers. The Lone Ranger bits are also very nice (another troubled production).Yeah I agree, sounds like Gollum's theme. Which I guess makes a weird kind of sense since both Gollum and Batman lead a double life xDFinal part of "Batman Suite" sounds like "The Lord of The Rings" lolReally again on that Lego Batman score ? Still don't know what everyone is raving about. The score of wonder woman. Liked it, but nothing memorable. For best the more emotional tracks stand out the best like Pain, Loss & Love
It's the same as One Day just re-scoredLego Batman is not even the best animated score this year let alone the second best all time.<br><br>The Lion King, Prince of Egypt, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, etc..<br><br><br><br>Dear Hans,<br><br>me and my wife visited the concert in Leipzig, Germany on May 24th 2017. We are big fans of Hans’ music and were in joyful anticipation to see him playing live some of our most favorite songs.<br><br>We had tickets for the best category right in front of the stage. By the way: we also visited John Williams and we have tickets for James Newton Howard as well.<br><br>But sadly this concert was a total disaster and we drove back home with nothing else than disappointment and anger. Compared to John Williams, where we were totally excited and told everybody about the great concert, we weren’t able to do this for the Hans Zimmer concert.<br><br>Let me explain in short, how we experienced this Hans’ concert.<br><br>1) Sound<br>The sound was horrible. The bass (especially sub-bass) was way to loud. Everything was booming, the sound was ‚muddy‘ and totally distorted. Vocals were hearable and understandable only if the band was playing very quitely.<br><br>At least, many people had to cover their ears because of the high loudness. And some people left the concert because of the bad sound. And just as a note: such high levels are harmful to health and if you like your fans to hear your music in the future, you shouldn’t kill their hearing ability!<br><br>Front of House was at the very end of the hall - so they didn’t hear how bad it was in front of the stage - and the most expensive seats.<br><br>I have to say this was no professional work. It seems like they just tried to kill any noise by turning up the volume to the max (like in the 80s) instead of optimizing sound and setup adjusted to the hall and the audience.<br><br>2) Lightshow and screen<br>The lightshow was a lowlight as well.<br><br>Almost the whole lightshow was based on strobe effects and flashing lights - no matter if the moving hads were flashing or the psychedelic moving images on the big screen were flickering and flashing. I was not able to watch this concert longer than a few seconds and then I had to close my eyes for a few seconds before I was able to watch again. Two hours of strobing and flickering lights, all the way from light to dark and back again in high frequencies was very exhausting. And it wasn’t only me. I saw a lot of people keeping their heads down and were watching the ground and not the stage.<br><br>Lucky me, I’m not an epileptic….<br><br>The big screen was used only for this irritating images and sometimes for pre-recorded! scenes, where some of the musicians were playing their instruments instead of showing the band or Hans’ playing live or if Hans’ is telling stories about the songs, his live or his friends and band colleagues.<br><br>At least this kind of lightshow and use of the big screen didn’t make it possible to see the artists faces. So it’s a bit like with the sound… You couldn’t hear them, but you couldn’t see them as well.<br><br><br>So why do you visit a concert? Right, to see the artist play and hear, what they play. Both wasn’t possible or a joy that day.<br><br>There are many clips on YouTube, where you can see and hear what we experienced. And no, the distorted sound is not caused by „bad mics“ of the smartphones...<br><br><br>I’m very sad to say this, but this was the worst concert of my live. I’m not able to tell anything good about this event - and everybody was expecting the total opposite. And to be honest - I wish I could get my money back, for the very first time in my live after visiting a concert. It was such a waste of time and money :(<br><br>Rick<br>Up, How to train your dragon and then Lego Batman are my top three. Defiantly best score of the year - AT THE MOMENT !!!Me too! Fun score. Surprised there are no more comments here.
Exactly - Lego batman could easily be for any D.C. Film not just for an animation . One of my favoritesGot to agree with you . Legit batman is in my top 5 for sure . It out a lot of super hero film soundtracks to shame . Excellent scoreWell.. I saw the movie, and I liked though not as much as the trilogy, but its very enjoyable in its own right. Capture much more of the firsts movies feeling that OST did. What I think I missed the most was Verbinski's weird sensibilities, grittiness and timming, but oh well as long as he doesn't want to return to this series, it will be something to miss for ever. <br><br>As for the Zanelli's score I loved it. I think is much better than Curse of the Black Pearl, which I think is the one we should compare with. Remember this new movie is, in theory the 1st one of a new part of the saga, so... compare it to AWE I think is very unfair... Not just the characters but the story itself must earn the epicness just as AWE did, thats how Zimmer desceibed it at the time. So this new one is the lowest end of Pirates epicness yet, or at least is the way I see it. If they keep doing more and Zenlli is still there, I'm sure it'll have to grow in scope and reach AWE highs and maybe even more.Agree with Edmund, (Shrek, Ice Age, Kung Fu Panda, Jungle Book...,) but each to his own... <br>What's the name of that celestial music when Volmer gives Hannah a new dress and says to her "You're a woman now" ?

Hello everyone

Back in August while searching for news on Lorne Balfe score for Assassin's Creed Revelations I came across a Swedish video game site that had received a press release from Ubisoft about teaming up with the Malmo Symphony Orchestra to record music for some of there upcoming games (Including Assassin's Creed Revelations)

Here is the press release translated from Swedish (Translated with Bing)

"Ubisoft and Malmö Symphony Orchestra is initiating cooperation on recordings of original music for the upcoming games. First out is Assassin's Creed Revelations, the fourth sequel in the series of bestselling and critically acclaimed game Assassin's Creed. Data game was launched in 2007 and has sold nearly 30 million copies and is developed by Ubisoft Montreal with support and expertise from the Malmö-based game Studio Massive Entertainment. "

"Malmö Symphony Orchestra already has long experience of that record and make video game music. The Orchestra has since 2006 world record in game music audience at an outdoor concert. Music for Assassin's Creed Revelations recorded in Malmö Concert Hall 24-26 August. A group of hot Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer's leadership are working with music for the games, in this case, it is the Scot Lorne Balfe, who is the author. Mr Balfe has among other things been involved in music for Guy Ritchies film version of Sherlock Holmes who won an Academy Award for best original music, for Frost/Nixon and Pirates of the Caribbean. "

Source: h t t p ://www.discshop.se/spelguiden/blogg/svensk_valljud_i_kommand e_spel/B501

Now whats interesting about the press release is the following

'' A group of hot Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer's leadership are working with music for the games, in this case, it is the Scot Lorne Balfe, who is the author ''

Now maybe it's a poor translation but to me that sounds like Remote Control composer's will be doing the scores for these games.

Now seeing that this site is the ''Almost Official '' site
of Remote Control Productions I was wondering if anybody here knows anything about this?, Or could someone who knows Swedish clear this up, Is it a bad translation or am I reading it right?

Thank you

Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer
In einem Film ist die Musik das Gefühl! Ohne Gefühl sind die Bilder NICHTS. Das Gefühl aber ist auch ohne Bilder wertvoll. Somit ist es das, was unserem Leben Atem verleiht und auch Sinn und Farbe. Das Gefühl macht die Bilder erst zu dem, was sie sein können.
Das kann ich in Ihrer Musik insbsondere erleben.
HErzlichen Dank dafür und Ihenen alles Gute

I'm afraid you can't even if there is no commercial purpose. This could depend on each country laws, so it is better to ask to association that manages artits' rights.


Areozz2012-02-29 00:42:03
Comments made by that lansen guy need to be removed. He posted all over here telling people what's okay and what's not and he has absolutely no authority here whatsoever. You wouldn't want people getting in trouble because they took the word of a nobody, would you?


Elaine2012-02-29 01:27:19
Ok, I am glad that I have not done anything as of yet, tyvm Damien. Do you know who I would contact for the Lion King CD then? or Who I would need to speak with, since I am in the states? I want to do the correct thing, so I don't step on any toes or get anyone into trouble. I appreciate it greatly!


Damien, Moderator2012-02-29 20:18:43
@Areozz: you're right, its better I edit this post.

@Elaine: for States and as I presume rights are hold by Disney, it should be the MPAA.
Another way is that on the CD you should have the copyright owner, so by contacting him you should get the answer.


Areozz2012-02-29 21:34:02
There are more of lansen's posts down this page and he has possibly posted on other pages that have had recent activity.

Thanks.

Is it possible to use Mr Zimmer's music for non-commercial videos?

We are a volunteer organisation, operating 1920's trams [streetcars/trolleys].

We invite retired people [greys/silvers - people over 65] to enjoy the experience.

We show them videos [we have made] of the old days and then take them on a ride, followed by morning or afternoon tea.

May we use the music for our 'videos'?

yes if you don't make any money with it. just write the copyrights at the end of the video

Thanks!

It's a soundtrack, you're supposed to put all the music on it.

I would appreciate it if in the future all of the Kung Fu Panda soundtracks actually included ALL the music from the movie.

I am greatly disappointed in the fact that I paid for something and realistically only got half of it.

Same with the Kung Fu Panda 2 Soundtrack.

Is there any chance we could get the music that is missing from the soundtracks?


Mycroft2012-01-12 04:51:15
This place is only a fan site, man. Asking the webmasters and programmers of this site to give you the missing music to the soundtracks you seek isn't going to help you at all. They might not even have the music themselves--and even if they did, they aren't just going to share it with you because you want it. No, they might not even share it with you if you paid good money.

There is absolutely nothing you can do nor is there anyone you can contact here or hardly anywhere else on all of the world wide web who can help you get the music you seek. I hate to be a dream crusher, but that's the way it has to be--it's the way the world goes round.


Sad Fan2012-01-12 05:05:57
I just fund out that on the Kung Fu Panda 2 website, it has an auto playing music thingy, that plays through the entire soudntrack of KFP2, only that, it has EVERY song from the movie, unlike the soundtrack. Now, how to download them....


theeaglesfan0052012-01-12 16:54:56
the record companies dont see a huge market in releasing FULL scores... they put 60ish minutes or so & sell it... there's apparently a bigger market in commercial releases.. makes me mad... i mean LOTR & The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo have full releases that you can buy.. i hope TDKR does this


Mycroft2012-01-12 17:35:57
@Sad Fan: You can download an add-on for Firefox that will snag that music for you. Or you can go digging deep into your temp internet folders. And if all that's too complicated, you could just do a stereo mix recording of the music that's playing through Audacity.


Sad Fan2012-01-13 01:00:41
Yes, I managed to download all the songs, but unfortunately, they are all crap quality. This pisses me off so much.

Nope, this is an information site only, although it has turned to rubbish in recent months (the opinion of others). In fact, discussion about downloading music is shunned and your comment will likely be removed in a short time...yet they will leave mine creating a hole in the conversation.
