@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06. The Legend of the Jewel (02:23)<br>07. The Adventure Begins (01:40)<br>08. Special Abilities (01:16)<br>09. The Bikers (03:44)<br>10. Van Pelt (01:00)<br>11. A Test Of Friendship (01:22)<br>12. The Bazaar (01:16)<br>13. Snake Charmer (03:41)<br>14. The Power of Bravestone (01:04)<br>15. Seaplane McDonough (02:17)<br>16. The Missing Piece (01:46)<br>17. Lost In Time (01:18)<br>18. Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.
One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.hans should win the oscar for best sound effects and not for the best music/score. just as a statement.And it's also unfair to use Balfe to criticize Powell. He started working on American projects in 2005 with Batman Begins, and only after 2010 did he receive individual projects. Is it accurate to compare someone who entered the party at the last minute with two others who are in it for 20 (Powell) and 30 (Zimmer)?<br><br>I'm in a hurry and I put everything into a translator. Forgive the many mistakes.<br> <br><br><br>Composers do not need to worry about the attention, acceptance of the public of the same or the same intensity as pop music artists do. There's no need to do that. Occasionally some name draws attention to the public and causes many people to be in the genre, Williams and Zimmer are the main examples that I can bring the table. However it is not because Williams or Zimmer are extremely popular and perhaps worry about the material they are offering to the public who adores them that all the composers of the world need to do equal. Most of these men and women even enxeega as "celebrity". They are more like artisans or the rest of the crew of a film that occupies with the lights, effects and costumes and that will never have the same response from the public as the main actor. And they don't even expect it. So I think it's foolish to wait for Powell to occupy himself in 2,3 movies a year to please a fanbase.<br><br>I'll agree with you when it says it's deplorable to see CPR composers who talk so much about building a single voice and giving emerging talent the opportunity to use so many additional composers (many of them with a possible promise that in the future they will work with Zimmer and thus have the opportunity to show his face in Hollywood.The sense is almost always these.You start with a secondary composer, he arrives at Zimmer and gains some kind of notoriety). But Powell is not the only one who does this. So he should not be the only one's a film score. It has no obligation to provide a pleasant or enjoyable listening experience, and for an award like this that doesn't really come into consideration. So if it works in the film, it did its job and that's all that matters.<br><br>For me personally, as someone who cares about music first and films second, a score like Dunkirk has little value. A few years ago I probably would have been pretty mad about this score winning awards and acclaim (you should have seen how salty I got when The Social Network beat out HTTYD), but these days... *shrug*. I know what I like, Dunkirk isn't it, and that's fine. It wasn't written for me. Do I wish Hans still wrote the kind of music I like? Of course. But he gets to make his own choices as an artist, just as I get to choose what to listen to as a fan.
The score is already on itunes.This score... so many mixed emotions. Does it work for the film? Heck yeah. Does it improve the film? So much so. Did Hans do what he set out to do? Totally. Is it an award winning masterpiece? Um, not so fast.<br><br>Dunkirk, while super effective within the context of the film (I wouldn’t change a thing about it), I must admit, it doesn’t have nearly the same effect as a stand-alone listen. It’s literally the same textures and notes over and over again, just slightly rising and falling in pitch and tempo. Does that make it “award” worthy? I’m not sure. If based solely on the film, you betcha. If based purely on the music itself, I don’t think so. That’s where Interstellar succeeds so far and away over Dunkirk. As a pure listening experience, Interstellar is interesting, multi-layered and emotional. Whereas Dunkirk is just flat, void of any sort of feeling or “actual” music (again, works IN the film). It’s glorified sound FX (save for the end, which, no doubt, is in large part to Ben).<br><br>Hmm... I’ve never had a score tear me apart more than this one. I both love it and hate it. Maybe it did it’s job... lol.<br><br>Excuse me while I go listen to No Time for Caution yet again.I think most of us agree that he should've won for Interstellar but I think Dunkirk deserves it too. The work Hans and the music department did on this movie is just incredible. Must've been a lot of hard work. <br>An award is an award, Hans' 2nd Oscar is long overdue so I'd be glad to see him win. But it would be weird to see him win for THAT score, after all the greatnesses of the past 20 years. Same thing with Morricone who won his only Oscar for his very light and insignificant work on Hateful Eight. Good for the man, good for the fans, but doesn't really make sense. But have Oscars ever made sense? :-phaha hybrid :D made my day

The Alien: Covenant score is available today. Great score. Better than I thought it would be. I was afraid we might get something like Assassin's Creed but the score really breaths alien and fans of Elliot Goldenthal score for Alien wil have some fun.

D A R TH2017-06-03 23:49:06
Do you know, where is "Life" and "We were Right" in Alien Covenant ?

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 31 || 2016-11-02 14:17:21
:-/ So apparently HGW is out of Alien: Covenant. This is really disappointing, considering his contributions to Prometheus were the best parts of the score. I wonder what the issue was, and who is gonna tackle this.

Saurabh2016-11-02 20:40:30
The issue is Ridley Scott. He is known to botch the development of a good working relationship with his composers, especially the ones who have produced some of their best work with him - Zimmer(Black Rain, Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, Hannibal, Matchstick Men) and HGW(Kingdom of Heaven, The Martian, Prometheus, Exodus). So, its not a surprise that he dumped HGW for someone else. But for a moment, I thought Scott had forged a new partnership with HGW when he had revealed himself as the composer of Alien: Covenant some time ago.

rockhound2016-11-02 22:53:39
or because they are making the movie in australia and the contract says, you have to hire an australian composer. the same situation was with Exodus.

mpolonest123 2016-11-03 20:34:06
@Saurabh That's what I initially considered, although it strikes me as odd that he would chase HGW away this early in the process. Especially considering their past working relationship.

@Rockhound If that is true I would at least hope that they keep Harry on as a ghostwriter/co-composer.

Saurabh2016-11-03 21:36:02
A stupid rumor that I read was that he was fired since his son leaked photos from the recording sessions when they were about to commence.

@mpolonest123 Even I hope they keep some of his themes (if he already has written them) and credit him in the 'additional music' dept.

Man, I was really amped up about this one since I loved the atmospheric base that he had created for The Martian and 'Life' from Prometheus.

mpolonest123 2016-11-03 22:23:01
Agreed. While I'm not generally crazy about his body of work (outside of Narnia and Shrek) I did love his thematic material for Prometheus, and the Martian was excellent.

Personally, I would love to see either Zimmer or Johann Johannsson tackle this. Someone who can write interesting, experimental music but still stay thematic and avoid the typical cliches of the genre. Streitenfeld did a fairly decent job but there was too much generic horror music for my tastes.

Anonymous2016-12-25 06:16:15
Red band trailer is out. Jed Kurzel is composing :/

Brent2016-12-25 07:02:58
Man, sometimes Ridley really pisses me off. It really is such a shame to loose Harry in this. I hope he gets a big project soon. I miss his fantasy and adventure scores (even though Martian and Live by Night are both very good).

Vivien2016-12-25 15:17:40
So disapointed, Kurzel sucks, A.Creed's score is so bad.

Macejko2016-12-25 15:56:07
I think this is Fassbender's doing. He has a raging hard-on for Kurzel brothers (for some reason), so I believe he is to blame for this. And yes, Jed Kurzel is a terrible composer, his AC is absolutely unlistenable.

Anonymous2016-12-25 17:39:51
What other Fassbender films has Kirzel done?

Edmund Meinerts2016-12-25 19:50:34
Kurzel scored that Fassbender Macbeth movie last year (or was it the year before?). I actually thought that was a decent score, if not very fun to listen to. Very heavy on the dark strings, kind of got into the psychological darkness of the play more than anything else. I can see that approach working OK for an Alien film too, although I'd much rather have heard HGW's version.

Frank2016-12-26 12:47:15
I love Macbeth too, both the film and the score. His score for Assassin's Creed is actually the few decent things coming out of that film. Definitely curious what his Alien will sound like.

mpolonest123 2016-12-26 23:11:48
Really disappointed to hear that Jed Kurzel is the composer. As effective as I thought The Babadook was, I still wanted a composer who could bring a fresh and epic style to the film. Not sold on the trailer either :-/

Michael Poleschuck2016-12-27 00:51:25
I'm sure, that Harry Gregson-Williams will be doing additional music for Alien: Covenant. That's the way it is.

Saurabh2016-12-27 02:15:58
Fassbender definitely seems to have had some input on Kurzel's appointment. He had done Slow West, Macbeth and Assassin's Creed starring Fassbender which are decent at best.

Macbeth was a brooding and harsh listening experience, while Assassin's Creed had some decent ambient ideas in Abstergo Rooftops, The Animus Room. But Kurzel's themes for Aguilar and the action were okay and some became repetitive, with the same themes throughout the entire soundtrack. It's a shame considering how rich the game soundtracks have been in the past.

I hope they do keep some of HGW's themes (I'm sure he has composed a few ideas at the very least) like Prometheus because Kurzel doesn't inspire much confidence.

mpolonest1232017-04-12 16:01:55
Well the first track from Covenant is out on SoundCloud, and it's as lame as I feared. Maybe Kurzel will deliver on the rest (doubtful) but this is such a non-theme.

Saurabh Kadam2017-04-12 19:05:08
Disagree. The echoplex like motif hearkens back to Goldsmith's score for the first one and sounds better than Prometheus's flat recording. The only good thing about that for me was HGW's Life. But Kurzel's Assassin's Creed was pedestrian so it's a wait and watch policy for me.

peter2017-04-12 19:05:44
where can I find it? :O

mpolonest1232017-04-12 19:53:58
@peter It's on Kurzel's SoundCloud page.

@Saurabh Right, I'm also waiting to listen to the full thing before I form an opinion but going off of this, I'm not too optimistic. Almost every Alien score after Goldsmith's has used that motif in some form or another, but managed to combine it with some pretty strong themes or decent horror material. Supposedly this is the main theme to the film, but I'm really struggling to get anything outside of the echoplex idea.

What this reminds me of is when Streitenfeld tackled Poltergeist and wrote some half-assed idea. You don't need to be Goldsmith but when you have an amazing lineup of James Horner, Elliot Goldenthal, and John Frizzel; all of which able to bring something new to the table while staying true to the original, you should definitely up your game. Still, here's hoping that the rest of the score exceeds everyone's expectations.

Frank2017-04-13 12:39:46
Rest assure, Harry's Life theme from Prometheus will be kept in Covenant

Edmund Meinerts2017-04-13 14:14:14
And you say this on what authority? It's Ridley Scott. I'll "rest assured" of nothing whatsoever until I hear the final result...

Everan2017-04-13 20:40:48
Cannot find Kurzel's track at all, what's the track's name? I've looked through Soundcloud but only find other scores from, snow something and Macbeth,

Everan2017-04-13 21:17:39
nvm, found it. Sounds nice, like a combo of Alien and Prometheus, and the strings are bit of a surprise, I thought this would continous sounds over and over like in Assassin's Creed but this has actual potential on making a theme throughtout the soundtrack, so that's something. I think the proble is that it's damn too short.

Frank2017-04-14 10:14:02
I saw an early version of it and Fassbender actually played Harry's Life theme on a flute in the film

Waymann2017-04-18 09:29:58
There is a new track available on iTunes. Sounds great.

Anonymous2017-04-19 03:01:38
yeah no theres not

Waymann2017-04-19 08:33:14
Euhm yes,there is. At least in my country. They released track 2, The Covenant.

Waymann2017-04-19 08:39:16
Ah, I see the problem. The score can't be pre-ordered in iTunes US. In Belgium I can pre-order the score, comes out on may 5th. Two tracks are available. Don't know about other countries.

mpolonest123 2017-04-20 00:17:18
The track is on YouTube (for now) and I actually like it. It's basically a rearrangement of Goldsmith's Alien theme with an added string section and some ambience mixed in. Hopefully the new material will be as strong. Say what you want about Prometheus, but it at least had a few strong themes and ideas.

Waymann2017-04-21 08:50:21
They keep dropping tracks. Now the track 11.Grass Attack is available.

This is what e recently posted on facebook.

Schedules and one's expectations of scoring a film don't always fit and this one wasn't going to work out. I move on to another project with gratitude to have worked on many movies with Ridley Scott where the moons did indeed align and I had the chance to burrow in to the core of the project and do the job!

Hybrid Soldier2015-09-22 14:27:54
No confirmation but Lurssen Mastering (who masters a lot of OSTs) was working on it like 10 days ago... So I think we can count on a soundtrack release ! ;)

Edmund Meinerts2015-09-22 15:17:07
At first when I read "Lurssen Mastering" I thought it was a name, and then my next thought was "that's an oddly apt name for someone who works on mastering music", and then my next thought was "........oh."

It totally sounds like a Scandinavian name!

JamesT2015-09-23 06:08:45
All the new TV spots have in the credits SOUNDTRACK ON what looks like the Columbia logo.

The Counselor sounds exactly like a Streitenfeld score. Even if Ridley Scott now has a problem with Marc Streitenfeld, he must have said to Pemberton: Streitenfeld is what I want!

Hybrid Soldier2013-12-16 11:14:23
Yes some parts sound totally like American Gangster... -_-

El Baradei2013-12-16 17:45:29
So Hybrid do you know what happened to Scott-Streitenfeld? Will they team up again?

Hybrid Soldier2013-12-16 20:32:36
Probably nothing good since HGW came in the last minute to rescore some parts... ;)

JustinByeber2013-12-17 06:29:32
What if Ridley just wanna use a new guy like he abandoned Vangelis and Hans Zimmer.

Justin, Hans chose not to do Kingdom of Heaven and not the other way around...

Bioscope2015-05-25 06:04:06
IO hope Marc gets a second chance with THE MARTIAN. His style will fit the loneliness and isolation very well.

That is great news! Hans wouldn't do another space film a year after interstellar lol so HGW is a great choice!

I am hoping for Hans or Harry....

Macejko2014-03-11 20:20:43
I'd actually give it to Marc himself. He is soooo underrated. His Robin Hood score was great.

Solaris2014-08-10 18:17:30
It's Alberto Iglesias.

Ds2014-10-25 13:29:51
Rumors are surfacing: Harry Gregson-Williams and Federico Jusid joined Alberto Iglesias for "Exodus"... Real?

Hybrid Soldier2014-10-25 16:23:19
Fact, no rumor... It's funny how it's twisted in every way...

Iglesias was helped by Jusid... HGW wrote 30 min on his side.

Ds2014-10-25 18:09:22
Very nice, do you have some more information to share about this score? I'm very curious to know why Scott asked HGW to write such a big amount of music on his side...

Adam2014-10-25 18:18:44
I'm not surprised Marc Streitenfeld was not asked back after Prometheus....

Hybrid Soldier2014-10-25 18:35:47
Iglesias was only hired for his nationality, like most spanish composers on big Hollywood films... Since the films are partly shot in Spain, they pay less taxes with that (think Navarette on Wrath of the Titans, Lucas Vidal on Fast 6, Banos on Ron Howard's next)... Which is sad... In some cases some are really just puppets... But Iglesias is gonna have his name on some big movie, he doesn't really care...

And HGW ? Well he saved Prometheus at the last minute, he's just Ridley's current fireman, proving there was no hard feeling after the butchering of Kingdom Of Heaven... lol

Ds2014-10-25 20:53:13
Fair enough. I wonder if the difference in styles of both composers will be audible. 30 minutes is quite a lot of music, and I guess most of it is gonna play in prominent scenes...

Seriously, Ridley Scott needs to find a good composer and stick to him, because the last few years have been... hum... (with the exception of The Counselor, which was really cool).

Macejko2014-10-25 23:39:59
Ridley Scott really needs to get his sh*t together.

Scorefan2014-10-26 02:47:19
I think Lucas Vidal On Fast 6 And Javier Navarrete on Wrath Of The Titans are really good score. They are very good composers, and the proof is that both have written some amazing scores

Lambegue2014-10-26 06:14:28
Iglesias usually is a good composer, I wonder why such a saving from HGW was necessary.

Hybrid Soldier2014-10-26 09:34:42

And Iglesias on a big epic film by Ridley Scott ? LOL

Edmund Meinerts2014-10-26 11:09:40
Yeah, whatever strengths Iglesias may have as a composer, he has zero experience with anything large-scale.

Why didn't Marc Streitenfeld compose the music for Ridley Scott's latest film The Counselor?

...2013-06-29 18:36:52
music by Daniel Pemberton.

Ds2013-08-07 19:31:39
I second this, why isn't Streitenfeld returning? He's scored everything from Ridley since A Good Year...

Ds2013-11-17 15:08:32
Hybrid, do you know if there's any link between Streitenfeld (or RCP) and Daniel Pemberton?

His score for The Counselor is absolutely gorgeous, you should give it a listen!

Frisbee2013-11-17 15:12:38
Something must have gone wrong during Prometheus. They even brought HGW in to do some last minute scoring for some sequences.

Hybrid Soldier2013-11-17 15:33:28
No Pemberton got the job thanks to editor Pietro Scalia...

And yes something probably went ugly in Prometheus, but we already knew that in march 2012 when HGW was brought it to do replacement cues...

...2013-11-17 16:19:18
Do you think that Hans will ever score a Ridley Scott movie as he used to in the feature?

Ds2013-11-17 16:27:59
Ridley's next movie is Moses, so i highly doubt Hans would be thrilled to score the same story for the 3rd time :p

Frisbee2013-11-17 16:34:02

Similarly something might have gone wrong during Matchstick Men, or HZ was still working with Scott.

Would love for the two to work on something together again though.

Edmund Meinerts2013-11-17 16:41:36
I'm thinking the Zimmer/Scott divide probably happened somewhere around Kingdom of Heaven, because we had that bizarre assignment switch with Harry Gregson-Williams and Madagascar (seriously, what composer would pass up a huge historical epic in favor of an animated movie full of song placements??). And then HGW's score was replaced by bits of Revell and Goldsmith and God knows what because Ridley Scott wouldn't know what a good score is if it kicked him in the face, and I imagine neither Hans nor Harry have particularly positive feelings towards him over that entire debacle.

Hybrid Soldier2013-11-17 17:07:04
HZ started scoring KOH (some early idea might even have inspired the final score), and dropped due to scheduling conflict with Spanglish...

It was either "go score another exhausting Ridley epic (and scoring his films is a total nightmare, honestly) or do Spanglish"...

In the end it was Spanglish. Hans admitted he missed Ridley and he regularly is in contact with him. But does that mean teaming up again ? I'd hope so, but I don't think anytime soon... And yes Matchstick Men was a mess...

No. And if there was news, it would have been presented here or elsewhere. That's why they call it news: because it is new to anyone. If you haven't heard any news, that means there is no news. You, of all people, ought to know this sort of thing by now.

Dear me, there's some right obnoxious twats on here. All Darth did was ask a simple question. Just because this site does not have it listed does not mean something hasn't leaked elsewhere. The Thin Red Line sessions tracklist was posted here by a user and have not yet been added to this site, so its quite feasible Prometheus might have been in a similar situation. Darth just wanted to know.

I noticed that there is a variation of lIFE that has a fanfare ending, instead of the crescendo used during the opening scene. Also, the exploding head scene has unreleased music if I am not mistaken.

Marc had already completed his work before HGW got in.

replace "going in" with "to close"
to close comes before going in ,in the movie.
Also Try Harder is not used.
They used it for the clip they released on the internet but they cut it out of the movie. Its only the beginning of the track that is used.

Aslo there is a theme with peter weyland later in the movie that is close to to close/going in, that is not on this album sadly. And the whole sandstorm soundtrack.
i really hope that there will be a more complete score later. Just like with robin hood

Everyone can compose music and call it submission.
Ridley Scott has been working with Marc Streitenfeld since 2000,
first as his music supervisor, later as composer.
Nikola Kostelac composer? I've never heard of that guy.
It is a fan made edition, nothing more.
