Will the soundtrack for the third season be released?
As Ramin pointed on Facebook, the soundtracks for GOT Season 3 & Pacific Rim are in the works.
GOT should be release this summer (Varèse, probably :)).
Pacific Rim will be released on July the 8th by WaterTower.
That's good news, but after 6 episodes I don't think there even is much of new music to release...
Oh the ending of the episode 6 had quite some great moments ! :)
Yeah, that melody was quite nice, but as much as love Ramin's music, I think that particular scene could have been handled better, musically speaking. What I really liked was the rendition of Theon's theme during the scene of him being chased. Also I'm not sure what to think about the rendition of Daenerys' theme playing at the end of episode 4. I think I understand what was Ramin going for, but it sounded somehow forced and inappropriate. And again, I really liked the melody playing during Catelyn's confession about Jon Snow. Overall, I'm indecisive about Season 3 music so far. It heavily relies on music from last two seasons (using Theon's theme at the execution of Rickard Karstark was a huge let down - it didn't make any sense to use that music there other than it was another execution), and when there is new music, it's usually a rendition of an older theme or it's something not really memorable. And I say this as a person who absolutely adores Ramin's work basically on everything.
Glad you brought up the Karstark thing, Macejko. Biggest musical facepalm since the Nazgul theme popped up in The Hobbit.
Edmund: Yes, but concerning The Hobbit, it is known that the music used in the film itself is different from the music on the soundtrack CD. For example - there is no Nazgul/Mordor theme on the CD. Also, the main theme, which can be heard during almost every action sequence in the movie, is present only twice on the soundtrack. I'm not sure whose decision that was, but there are many differences between those two. As for GoT, it's not hard to imagine that Ramin would indeed composed something new for that execution scene, but the creators (or the producers, or music supervisor) simply wanted to use the old stuff, just because it worked perfectly in similar scene. But of course, it doesn't make it any less disappointing. I would love to find out that Ramin indeed composed new music and it was just replaced with the old stuff, but I don't think it's happening.
Ramin posted on his Facebook that the release date for the Season 3 soundtrack is June 4th (digital version, physical release to follow).
I really like Game of Thrones but the opnnieg credits are the worst thing, in my opinion. It's not the music: that's great and powerful. It's the visuals that are completely unfit. For one, it's computer graphics that you can't mistake for anything else, even if it's hi-res. And then it speaks of clockwork, mechanisms and machinery, which are the things that are farthest from what this series is about. Perhaps the authors' intention was to depict the scheming, but that is far-fetched and still makes it feel completely out of place.
