Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there Mikeal
Typical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.
Great work, Macejko. Do you have a lossless link for this?Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.Heh, if it's anything like the 1994 score, then you'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.OST is a very horrible realise. Thanks La La Land for sharing Complete score! Score in La La Land is great!i like Rafiki theme. When Rafiki gets his old stick.
We need the complete and expanded score available to us! This includes the score playing during mufasa's entrance to rescue zazu <br><br>Anyone else with me?? Hans is a legendary genius! <3Irrelevant, there are quite a few RCP composers represented by them, for instance Geoff Zanelli, John Powell, Henry Jackman and Heitor Pereira.The movie is awesome, the score is great. Excellent work from Max and Stteffen@Hybrid, Junkie is with Kraft-Engel Agency. Is this a good or bad thing in terms of working with RCP?Soooo... Balfe is scoring the new HBO Series 'His Dark Materials'.<br><br>I'm glad that Lorne gets so much work, but I really wanted somebody else for this series.<br><br>Lorne is doing so much, that I'm afraid some things will turn out generic. Hope this doesn't happen. But we'll see (hear).<br><br>No very excited at the moment, but maybe this will change when I hear it.

Martin Tillman is scoring a new movie called A bell for Ursli! I'm very glad that he gets to do some composing of his own these days! He is such a great musician! He plays the cello in most of Zimmer's and HGW's scores if you don't know who he is:P

Amazing!!! compliments, as usual, great composition.!

Mike reply Replies: 13 || 2013-09-17 01:42:27
I can't quite place why, but Celebrate the Oscars reminds me of John Williams. Great and uplifting track--and starts out with a classic Zimmerish BRAAAAAAM. :)


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:51:58
Oddly enough I just bought it


Mike2013-09-17 01:52:45
Good stuff, isn't it?


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:54:17
The BRAAAAAM! is awesome


Mike2013-09-17 01:55:26
The main melody resembles the heroic Superman theme from Man of Steel (think the beginning of "Flight").


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:58:04
Huh I'm not hearing that.


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:59:49
and i'm not saying that in a bad way


Mike2013-09-17 02:01:01
Listen to 0:48-1:10 in Celebrate the Oscars, then listen to 0:31-1:10 or so in Flight.


Mike2013-09-17 02:01:58
Maybe it's just me.


Mike2013-09-17 02:05:04
Even better idea: listen to that same section of Celebrate the Oscars, then listen to 14:26-15:20 in "Man of Steel (Hans' Original Sketchbook)", and tell me if you notice it there.


MacArthur2013-09-17 02:06:06
Yes now I got you it's a similar chord progression


MacArthur2013-09-17 02:08:36
Different Orchestrations but similar chord progression not exactly the same but similar.


Mike2013-09-17 02:11:24
Both quite good though. I wouldn't have known when this came out to expect something similar for Superman. lol. And speaking of Zimmer superhero music, I find it funny that Zimmer hasn't mentioned his involvement with Spider-Man.


MacArthur2013-09-17 03:07:11
Yeah good point but he also has 4 more movies before that one comes out

So the Oscars have been broadcasted worldwide, yet this music can be only bought by US citizens.

What's the reason? It's not like there will be any development on German TV/Music market that forces them to withhold sales in Germany for any number of weeks or months. There is NO reason. I really enjoyed and appreciated the music, it even caused goosebumps and tears, yet I cannot pay those f*in $5.99 (or even make that Euros) to further enjoy and appreciate it. Legally! At least, with a CD, I could order it on Amazon US and have it shipped over here or something.

THIS is what forces people all over the world into piracy, because we would LOVE to pay for good stuff, but are just kept away from getting it! REALLY SUCKS! Especially having in mind where Hans Zimmer comes from - he has tons of fans in Germany!!!

*** EDITED BY WEBMASTERS : This topic is about the fact this score is only available on the american itunes store, and prevent other country to download it ****
*** Priere de rédiger en anglais la prochaine fois ***
Alors, là! Bon, désolé, j'écris en français. Trop énervé pour réfléchir anglais ce matin!!

Je me pointe sur l'iTunes tranquillement pour acheter la piste faite par Hans. Que se passe-t-il? "Votre compte ne peut acheter des produits sur l'iStore américain".

Et apr&#232;s, on va dire qu'Internet est rempli de pirates...
Bouh!! Honte &#224; eux!

Cela dit, quelle magnifique piste créée par Zimmer. Un peu répétitive mais épique, glorieuse. Tout ce que j'aime de sa musique (qui d'ailleurs est souvent tr&#232;s sombre, plus technique ces derni&#232;res années).

Cela fait plaisir de retrouver un th&#232;me dans la veine de "Backdraft", "Spirit" et un soupçon de "The Holiday" également.

I'm a french speaking too, but I want to avoid 3 *XXXX reply :) I completely agree with you Hale, this is a very refreshing-Zimmer sound, it made me so happy when I heard this track yesterday morning! Just Hope "Dark Knight Rises" will not fall too deep into "Dark Knight" or "Inception" sounds, which for me is a disappointing tendency of Zimmer sound these last years...
