Lorne has nothing to do with interstellarGITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere
I think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.
Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*

look at this ---> h t t p ://hans-zimmer.com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1006

Hans and Lorne are looking for the voice of the Assassin's Creed Revelations Theme Song! It's great thst Lorne is on the franchise dispite it wasn't nessesary to change the composer, in my opinion - Jesper Kyd's stuff is still fantastic :)


Tim2011-09-10 15:41:24
oooops! sorry - that's the correct link

Ele2011-09-10 17:02:12
I don't get it. Who will be in charge of composing music? Jesper? Lorne? Hans? Or all of them?


T-Mann0362011-09-10 18:02:57
I think Hans will be providing the themes while Lorne composes the rest of the scores in each track.


Hybrid Soldier2011-09-11 09:33:10
Hans wrote nothing for Assassin's Creed.


Ele2011-09-11 10:54:16
So what is Lorne doing in this project? Composing only main theme, leaving all the music to Jesper? Or there will be some sort of collaboration?


Hybrid Soldier2011-09-11 15:18:03
Lorne wrote the Assassin's Creed - Revelations score.


Jesper had nothing to do with the score either. ;)


T-Mann0362011-09-11 17:03:40
So Hybrid... the Assassin's Creed: Revelations video game score will be composed only by Lorne Balfe, right?


Hybrid Soldier2011-09-11 17:47:15
It's actually already done.

Recorded 3 weeks ago... ;)


Ele2011-09-19 20:55:26
What about this?

this score draws you into medieval. very intense - like Atli did on the Eagle! :)

Varese has just withdrawn this title and going to release it again on March 10 with higher price. What is this?! I just ordered this from SAE and now they had to cancel it from my order.

al bundy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-10 00:00:00
You can buy it as import from european stores like amazon.de or colosseum.de

Kaya reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-10 00:00:00
My order shipped from Varese but I did pre-order like a month ago. I sent them an email and they said the original delay was because they were waiting on their first shipment from overseas. So my guess is they got their shipment, sold out, realized it cost more then they though to import discs and are bumping the price if that's the case.

Lorne Balfe has something, this kind of thing you don't want to say to keep pleasure... Do continue your collaboration with zimmer. Promising!

First time through: fairly impressed.

I wanna watch the movie just to see how the score hits the mood of this :)

Brad reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-07 00:00:00
Wow, this is score is so heartfelt and real. Lorne Balfe may end up being the best student Zimmer has ever produced, because this soundtrack is fantastic. I just sat through the entire listen (the leaked version) and it had me, from the eerie vocals to the soothing strings to the quirky instrumentation that beckons Sherlock Holmes. Ironclad is a wonderful listen and all credit must go to Balfe for this one. I will definitely end up buying this one.

Got some reminisce of clash of the titians, a bit of sherlock holmes, and some inception in there (the loud horns lol)

Lorne Balfe is talented as hell.

john reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-15 00:00:00
lol. it says that the track has been played recently, because someone else have already clicked on the track to be played on the radio. so you weren't able to request that track. it was also for me a pain in the ___ ^^ but i managed to record those cues from the webradio. i love to hear to those tracks without a break until the cd is out :) can't wait to buy it as the three tracks are really really promising!

What am I doing wrongley? If I click the links I always get the message "Your request failed. Reason given:

oh and btw, am I hearing there some 'albanian' folk-melodies? ^^
It's on the medley, not sure which track it is actually.

gggh reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-09 00:00:00
yes now I've heard all the tracks in the webradio and I have to say this is really great.
Sure a bit King Arthur, but why not. But I'm also hearing Inception, those Booom-booooooooooooom.

I'm loving the instruments, especially the violin when it haves it solo, like in Hunger Sets In.

Lorne really is a great great talent, and I'm really looking forward to his new movies, and yes of course to this release here.

Hans did it right to have Lorne in his team. He learned a lot from the boss and now he can put some wonderful music out.

Brave Lorne!!!

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-09 00:00:00
Sounds really cool. I can hear some King Arthur and Pillars. Maybe some Tudors as well. Anyway, it's coming from Lorne, 100 % fun to listen for sure.
