I really liked Richter’s score over balfesI listened Max Richter for years. He is the kind of select or minority composer who does his solo works and soundtrack for movies not so famous. <br>His solo works are really really good with quintet and piano and voice. "on the nature of daylight" is definitely the best. <br>His sountrack is not good as his solo, to be honest. I think "the Leftovers" (2014-2017, HBO series), "Miss Slaone" (2016) and "Mary Queen of Scots" (2019) are cool.<br>If you need some peaceful music for meditation or good sleep, listen to his work.Richter did his recording in january and june 2019. The Director himself is a fan of Richter, so the deadline and director are not the reason.<br>It seemed that producers were not satisfied with Richter's music and they wanted something new, that's why they got Lorne. It turned out Lorne brought a very limited new...@Cercei<br>Hybrid can definitely answer that best. Richter’s score is used (alongside Balfe’s material) as well as some source pieces. If I remember correctly it’s a mish-mash of the two.I do know that piece, it’s very pretty. I’ll check out his other works, thanks for the recommendation. In terms of minimalism I really am into Brian Eno at the moment. His “Music For Airports” and “The Lovely Bones” are excellent if you like more introspective music.
btw, you're saying Lorne recomposed and reworked the entire score. as i haven't seen the movie yet, did the producers end up with not using richters score for it at all and just used the score from Lorne?thanks for your information. but i actually don't understand why they have done that. i've heard now Lornes cues and Richters cues. all those cues from Lorne, they sound very similiar to that what Richter composed, but somehow with less melodies. And you really have to work hard to not use fewer melodies then Richter, as he's a minimalist at its best ^^ with that being said, i can't hear any groundbreaking differences from Lornes part, so what was their idea on hiring it and getting the same style of music, but in a more "light" version? :/i really admire Max Richters work, he isn't that new in this scene. his style is that repeating minimalism. maybe you've heard once the cue "on the nature of daylight" which was used a lot by many other movies. his last score which knocked me out was "Hostiles". such an emotional and intense score, you need to hear that, and probably see the movie as well (with Christian Bale). <br><br>Really surprised at this album, I’ve never really heard anything from Max Richter but I really like what he ended up writing for this score. It surprisingly flows well for a stand alone listen. It’s funny that the producers wanted a different approach, I think Richter nailed it.<br><br>Balfe’s contribution is excellent as well, I particularly like that repeating chord progression (which is starting to become one of his trademarks considering how many times he has used it). It’s disappointing that they didn’t include more of his contribution though, since he apparently rewrote the entire score.Lorne said in his Twitter, the first album for His Dark Materials come 3rd November, no date, for the moment, for the second album.
Was the producersi haven't understood the fact, that Lorne was involved in this. Can someone explain it for me? Was the director not satisfied with Richters music? Was the deadline too near? Or what was the reason why they have brought Lorne to this project?"The Wanderer", "Event Horizon", "You Have To Let Me Go" and "Tuesday (Voiceless)" = WOW WOW WOW!!!Zanelli is no James Newton Howard, but he did a fantastic job with writing a large scale fantasy score. I’ll even say that, while I think the first Maleficent is stronger overall, I personally like the action writing better here. Also 2 little things I’ve noticed;<br><br>1. The new theme here sounds fairly similar to the Father/Son tune from KFP3<br>2. 2:20-3:30 sounds like it may have been temped from the finale of Fantastic Beasts. (Or maybe I’m just crazy lol)Great work of Zanelli, if is not as good like JNH's Maleficent, is a tremendous work, with a terrific writing and orchestrations, even the most tender parts are terrific.
It’s definitely Balfe. I’ve seen the film for the second time two weeks ago so my memory is kind of hazy but luckily I decided to record the end credits for reference and I think it plays in Balfe’s section / variation of one of his themes played on a solo string instrument. <br><br>I think we got most of Richter cues as it was mainly his release. I feel that Lorne has moved on from this project - he didn’t even mention the release so an extended release of his material seems unlikely to happen :( <br><br>For those interested the credits suite plays as follows: <br><br><br>“A Trip To The Moon” (synth part)<br>“I Put All That Away”<br>Variation on the theme in “Underground Lake” at 0:14<br>Variation on the theme in “Trip To Neptune” 0-1:00<br>“To The Stars”Season 2 premieres in 2 weeks, if he was scoring he would be working on it at the moment. But yes no confirmation regarding his return or a new composer. No news regarding new composer might be a hint whether Djawadi is returning or not.I only listened to the first couple of cues so it is too early to form an opinion comparing it to JNH but I disagree the first half drags. Maybe because I love tender themes.I suspect that the release was just what they had originally planned, with a couple of bonus tracks thrown in to appease Fox. They likely didn't put too much thought in what they added, since people who have spoken with Lorne said he wasn't aware of the release and was surprised Prayer wasn't on it. I'm just glad anything got released at all after everything that has gone before.<br><br>Regarding that theme you mentioned, is it one that sounded like the personal motif Ethan has in M:I Fallout? Because while I did initially assume that was Balfe too, it seems it was actually Richter. Haven't gotten to hear Lorne's parts yet, so who knows he if he also did a similar thing.It’s not included and I’m very confused. I think there’s a good amount of unused tracks or the way the score was used was so terrible that only few tracks were memorable to me. <br><br>There’s a theme that plays during two tragic moments - I thought it was “Prayer” but it isn’t. I think it’s by Lorne as it’s closer to the direction he took. <br><br>I wish they gave us more Balfe :(

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

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.

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.

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)

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!

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.
