Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!
It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).
John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)Hubris: Choral Works by John Powell is now available to stream worldwide on all digital platforms! &#128526;<br><br>Also available to download in 192k/24bit high-resolution from johnpowellmusic .com<br>CDs on https ://bit.ly/2lcQ5Ig :) and coming soon to Amazon and other retailers!<br><br>Thank you, everyone, who was a part of this record!<br>Enjoy &#127926;&#127930;Mega cool :) Wann wird dieser Remix released? :)This would be really nice that as the release is only available for download, we had the choice to download it in a better quality than the CD itself. We have no material piece in the  hands, at least we would like to have such a contentment. I do have no action in Qobuz, but that should be a mandatory place for a download only music, for music lovers who like pure instrumental music. ;)<br>I'll be waiting for it !This album is absolutley wonderful!. I loved every second of it. I adore choirs in film music and an album like this is a very welcome treat!<br><br>Great job, Mr. Powell<br>10/10
Absolutely delightful score. Loved it.Where can we buy this "complete score"?What a wonderful soundtrack, I can not stop listening either. When I get home after work, Interstellar is the best soundtrack to listen to in the quiet of dawn. It's to get in touch with the Cosmos. Congratulations Hans Zimmer.from like.....4 years ago?I’m surprised nobody is talking about the expanded score that has leaked...!

Hybrid, can you upload more unreleased stuff from Atli?


Hybrid Soldier2014-06-06 13:04:57
Like what ?

I mean, I have one rule => 1 cue per project per composer...


So far I think Atli's career is represented quite well ! :)


Anos 2014-06-06 20:57:38
Maybe 2 tracks per Project per Composer?
Like Vantage Point from Atli & one unreleased cue from Henry for Vantage Point?
Because I love Atli's Music from Vantage Point & Hansel & Gretel!!


Lambegue2014-06-07 13:34:21
As much as I understand your desire to have more music, you musn't forget that it takes a lot of time to upload it : Hybrid has been working on it during a long time, and it's not finished yet...So one track per project is alreaddy good :)
Plus, if you love Atli so much, you can still buy his albums.


Hybrid Soldier2014-06-07 14:11:25
Yeah and composers agree with that... My point is not to put the whole scores streaming here... It's a showreel for composers...

FeSe reply Replies: 2 || 2013-07-15 23:24:43
Complete Score please


thejok3rrules2013-07-15 23:38:24
I second this... I don't know why, but I loved the score, even tough I know it was kind of a mess... Well, I guess it happens! I did like Iron Man too, so... :p


T-Mann0362014-01-18 22:14:10
I third that!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 2 || 2013-04-24 15:10:27
And credits for that one ! :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-24 17:21:44
And if you want chronological for that one (rough though, some tracks are made of cues not from the same scene, like Trolls Serve Witches) :

Don't Eat The Candy
The Witch Hunters
Business Is Good
White Magic
Lost Children Crying, Vol 2
Augsburg Burns
This Place Could Use A Bit Of Color
You Do The Bleeding
Trolls Serve Witches
Beautiful Story, Don't You Think?
There Are Good Witches In The World
Burn 'em All
Shoot Anything That Moves
Goodbye Muriel
The Fairy Tale

Much better listen imho (as always...)


Jeckyl2013-08-01 00:19:32
Theres a track after the song "the fairy tale" in the movie, it plays on the credits just at the end and lasts for 2:27 an instrumental song with a single female choir. You wouldn't happen to know whats the name of the song?

Macejko reply Replies: 1 || 2013-02-13 14:44:33
It has no soul. It's only loud as hell.


Stéphane Panchaud2013-02-13 15:05:24
Merci pour toutes votre attention, je sais que ma demande n'a pas trop de chance, je serrai tr&#232;s heureux de travailler pour vous, je suis un compositeur indépendant, je vis en Suisse &#224; Lausanne, j'ai quelque musique de films a mon actif, et beaucoup beaucoup de composition, ma passion et la musique, je compose depuis mon tr&#232;s jeune ages, pour moi la musique et comme un voyage dans un pays que je découvre et qui me réserve des surprise &#224; chaque pas.

Je vous envoies toutes mes meilleurs salutations musicales.

Bien &#224; vous

Mr. Qwertz Production.

And the Atli one we were talking about ! :)


Ds2013-01-09 00:44:36
Yeah! Didn't know Hans worked on it, it's great.


Edmund Meinerts2013-01-09 12:45:36
It will be similar to Henry Jackman's crap for "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter".


Cloud2013-01-09 13:10:56
I hope this will be at least on par with Season of the Witch, which had some pretty great moments.


Edmund Meinerts2013-01-09 14:43:27
Hey, Hybrid, can I have colored text too? Because that sure as hell isn't me. I kind of liked Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, actually.

Anyways, looking forward to this. Atli's underrated. :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-09 15:50:04
Sorry it's for H-Z.com team only ! :(


Looks like there are some funny jokers here. Get a life people !


tomPoland2013-01-11 09:44:01
It looks like Van Helsing, so I hope we will get at least something half as good as Silvestri score.


tomPoland2013-02-12 12:10:55
And I was wrong. For one-time listening only.


Miles2013-02-13 03:37:37
It's exciting and it has its moments, but it's not memorable or well-crafted enough to leave much of a good impression. Hope that Atli gets more demanded of him on his next project.

Ds reply Replies: 4 || 2013-01-24 12:12:03
Bought it on iTunes, it's a cool score. Very agressive, it's really like Atli described it: a mix between classic/gothic "fairy tale" sound and metal.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-24 17:42:59
(note: in answer to a deleted post but I keep this as it gives some information (Damien))

You have it up to Amazon & iTunes, even an amazon link right here on that very page !

Don't act like child...

Anyway, funny that the "Executive Music Producer HANS ZIMMER" comes BEFORE the composer credit on the film poster... Oh well...


El Baradei2013-01-26 17:37:52
Yeah, it's funny... next time Hans Zimmer's name comes before the actors: music by Hans Zimmer, starring Brad Pitt.


Ds2013-01-28 21:53:52
Well i find Hans Zimmer's name more attractive than Brad Pitt or any actor :p


MrZimmerFan (Fan from Spain)2013-01-30 16:40:48
I really like this work by Atli

Miles reply Replies: 3 || 2013-01-16 00:16:04
Amazon has a tracklist and audio clips up! It has contemporary elements which evoke Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but they're more cohesive and listenable here than in the former. There's also some nice quirky and unsettling choral work in Tracks 1, 9, and 13, and Track 12 sounds like what I can only describe as "gothic rock". Definitely looking forward to this!

Fantastic! And it gets released one week earlier than expected :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-16 09:10:20
Funny it's only digital and not even mentioning LLL Records. I wonder if their release will be strictly identical to this... LLL & Digital Bonus Tracks don't exactly match... And their physical release of Mancina's Sorcery was not the exact same as the digital one... We'll see.


Adrian2013-01-18 20:01:08
Amazon is not able to spell either:
Label: Atli Orvesson ?!
