What about his last cover of "Wicked Games"? What a great surprise! Actually, all the themes are being updated every week. Ramin's stealing the show again!Greetings! I have a question regarding the placement of certain cues. Here, "Mycroft Is Nude" is placed where it plays in the film. However, on the sheets, it's shown as being after "Paris Bombing Investigation." Was the scene originally supposed to be later in the film? I'd be curious to know.just beautifulThis is a whole new side of his music as compared to what we normally hear.Black Widow has been moved to Nov. 6th, so we'll het Balfe's sckre at the end of the year.<br><br>Mulan has been moved to July 24th.

This is a highly underrated album. It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Change Of Plan (Unused) (5:47)Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinion
So it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.

Just wondering out of curiosity if the credits for these Tyler scores that use additional guys from RCP will ever be known. Like Margeson on this one and Battle: LA, or Todd Haberman on Rambo. Any clues, Hybrid?


Hybrid Soldier2013-11-02 18:32:02
No because Tyler rarely gives royalties...

A couple cues from Rambo (The Compound if my memory doesn't suck) are credited Haberman.

Matt did a LOT of the action stuff on Battle LA & Expendables 1.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-02 18:37:33
He doesn't give royalties? Is that even legal? It would certainly explain how he's able to do so many scores in a year...sheesh.

Not surprised to hear about Margeson; Skyline sounds so much like a Tyler score it isn't even funny. :p


Hybrid Soldier2013-11-02 19:07:23
Of course it's legal...

I mean, all the credits I get are basically royalties sheets (cuesheet).

The thing is around RCP it's common to have detailed things, but they are not "forced" to do so. It's just the local culture. And it's not shared all around the non RCP guys.

I just checked Tyler's Iron Man 3 cuesheet and of course he's solo credited there. No money for Halli Cauthery, Stu Thomas, Tony Morales, Sarah Schachner or R. Lydecker... Of course they get paid (contract) when they work with him, but they won't get any other money in the future. That's the way it is...


Frank2013-11-03 02:13:44
Speaking of Tyler, am I the only one who found that the main theme of Thor The Dark Word is pretty similar to the opening title of Contender?


Mike2014-05-02 19:08:30
I did as well, Frank. That was my first thought upon hearing it.


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-02 19:15:55
The theme from Thor 2 is so derivative it's not even funny. Besides The Contender it also reminds me of Tyler's own Children of Dune...and it's based on a four-chord progression that he has used in practically every score he's ever done.


Knight2019-10-29 18:55:26
@Hybrid do you know specifically what cues Matt worked on for Battle: LA?

Actually Brian scored the first 5 episodes with help by Matt, and Matt scored the last 5 on his own... :)


Mr. Charles2012-03-07 19:12:19
So then are there credits available for who did each track Hybrid? Or is it too early?


Mr. Fate2012-03-07 21:18:47
Remember, you can find the credits just as easily as Hybrid. He gets them from ASCAP or some other site that has a similar function...At least, that's what I remember him saying elsewhere. I wouldn't think Hybrid has access to much more of that sort of info than any one of us does.
