Hallo und danke für das tolle Konzert in Köln! <br>Der Sound war phantastisch und auch der LJ hat hat ganze Arbeit geleistet - einziger Wermutstropfen war, daß ich mich sehr über einen persönlichen Kontakt bei einer Signierstunde gefreut hätte, Ihre Signatur hätte sich sicher auf dem ein oder anderen Booklet sehr wohl gefühlt neben der von Lisa. Ich freue mich auf alles weitere aus Ihrer Feder und hoffe auf künftige Konzerte. MfG, TobiasComplete Score leaked<br>That's it!! Thanks a lot, Edmund.<br><br>(I wasn't able to hear what he said when he introduced the track)<br><br>Hybrid, do you have any news regarding the release of the Wembley show recording? My fear is they finally realized it'd be wiser to release it AFTER the tour, so we'd have to wait until mid-June... so I really hope I'm wrong!Haha Edmund you make me really curious! Just managed to get my hand on A League of their own, I'll let you know what I think!<br><br>As for K2, I can't find it anywhere. It's not on iTunes (in Europe at least), it's not for download on amazon, nowhere at all. If you have a tip, please let me know :-)
Even Zimmer kind of got his start off the back of Stanley Meyers, admittedly. It's how he nabbed all those little British drama movies in the late 80s like My Beautiful Launderette and The Fruit Machine. But yeah, Junkie XL is a totally different story.<br><br>Dude, A League of Their Own will blow your mind. It's like absolutely nothing else in Zimmer's career - okay, the dramatic material and themes sound like him, but the game music is this crazy, complex, energetic big-band jazz stuff which is just so much fun to listen to. Think The Incredibles on steroids. It's my favorite early Zimmer score!As I understand it, the filmmakers pushed hard to get a more contemporary sound to the score, and while Basil Poledouris is no slouch at that kind of thing (just listen to his Wind score, which is amazing), I guess they ultimately ended up "soft rejecting" what he wrote and got Zimmer to come in and stop the gaps. I've never seen the movie, but from what I've read, it uses portions of both scores; mostly Poledouris for the themes and Zimmer for the action music.<br><br>It certainly sounds like a weird situation!<br><br>(Oh, and by the way, the sequel score for White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf, an early-career effort by John Debney, is really good! Better than either the Poledouris or the Zimmer.)I guess the MV formula worked really well for those guys... Powell, Mancina, HGW, what a dream team! But in Zimmer's case I find it even more impressive, because he started the whole thing himself, without this kind of studio to get him visibility (as far as I know, at least).<br><br>As for Junkie XL... for reasons you probably know, I think he's a totally different story (and with much less merits).<br><br>Next ones I've got to discover: K2 and A League of their own. As you probably guessed, I'm back in full fanboy-mode, I'm tired of waiting for new HZ releases and for the final concert, so I'm digging into the past! :-pUnless they played something different in Munich than in Berlin, it was "You're So Cool" from True Romance.I attended the concert in Munich. It was great! Can anyone tell me the name of the cheerful tune which started the second half of the concert? I don't think it was from any film, but was from Hans's school days.<br>Many Thanks!<br>
So what is the story with this score. Was Hans brought in to save the day here? Did they leave Basils name because of his main theme?Agreed. "Serpent Riders" from the soundtrack album sounds like Soule all over the place btw. A lot of today's film scores can't live up to that if you ask me.<br>Guild Wars 2 remains his best solo effort imo. Haven't got around to playing skyrim much, though the main theme is goosebumps-worthy.There's quite a few, really. I mean, David Arnold totally came out of nowhere in the mid-90s (and has since returned to nowhere, sadly). Danny Elfman's rise around the same time as Zimmer's was just as meteoric.<br><br>I'm not actually so sure about HGW, for that matter. He didn't get any really big assignments on his own until arguably Spy Game in 2001; he did a lot of collaborative work before then but usually played second fiddle to someone else (Rabin or Powell or Hans himself). Mark Mancina might be a better example for MV, coming out of pretty much nowhere to do a huge action movie like Speed. Or even Powell himself: Face/Off is a hell of a big movie to debut on!HGW climbed quite fast too ! ;)<br><br>Oh btw speaking of K2, I want to set something straight. HZ's score for that one was done in 1992. The film originally came out in 1991 with the first score and it was decided to rescore it for Europe (and not the other way around). So Hans did it with Nick, who only joined Media Ventures in 1992 (and his first work was on Toys).For me, the most immersive game score (not best, necessarily...but the one that never fails to IMMEDIATELY transport me into another world) is Skyrim by Jeremy Soule. Mists of Pandaria (on which Soule was one of the composers) gets serious points from me simply because parts of it sound a loooooot like Skyrim, including the "Valley of the Four Winds" track you mention!
I can: Junkie XL. Make of that what you will... :|<br><br>This is an okay score but I don't find it to be as engaging or catchy or involving as other Zimmer scores from around the same period, like Days of Thunder or K2 (let alone Backdraft or the awesome A League of Their Own).Wow first time ? :)<br><br>There's some POTC 3 & Spirit lost in this !I'm listening to that score for the first time, have to say I'm impressed. I didn't realize how quick Zimmer established himself in Hollywood (although I was just born, maybe it explains why).<br><br>Barely 3 years after "Rain Man" he was already doing big movie scores like this one or Backdraft the same year. As well as two scores for Ridley Scott, and one for his brother Tony. I can't think of a single composer who managed to climb at the top so quickly.Good evening,<br><br>My boyfriend and I visited the Concert in Munic at 26th april. And i have to say: We were speechless!! The only thing we were able to do was starring at the stage and listen to this awesome concert.<br>Respect tot he whole team, you guys are truly amazing!<br>I hope i have another chance to visit a conert again. <br><br>My boyfriend said: „I will never hear such an amazing concert again in my whole life“ – and i think he’s right. <br>There are so much feelings in this Music. We were really touched, exspecially „The Lion King“ touched us so much! Tears were running over our cheeks and there were goose bumps all over our bodies.<br><br>Keep going on like this, you Guys are truly amazing! It was such a wounderful evening!<br><br>Thank You so much<br>Corinna<br>They get better with every expansion. I can't think of a game with more immersive music and that's saying something.<br>I agree that MoP is the best yet, Jade Forest and Valley of the Four Winds have absolutely beautiful music.

Is the wonderful music used for Witt's death scene a Zimmer original or is it the work of another composer? It has been wrongly attributed as Arvo Part's Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten but this is not correct (although that piece is sampled in an earlier part of the score)

Paul Maher Jr.2015-03-25 16:14:51
Malick's original temp track for Witt's death was Benjamin Britten. He wanted Zimmer to replicate that track as closely as he could, but it never achieved satisfaction. The same could be said for the section where Charles Ives is tacked on to Zimmer's score in the film. "The Unanswered Question" was the original temp track Malick used, and again he wanted Zimmer to achieve something closely resembling the spirit and feel of Ives' work, but just couldn't. His version is heard on the official soundtrack. Malick opted to leave Ives in the film.

kent882015-03-26 15:41:35
Isn't that little cue based on the orchestrated Jisas Yu Holem Laef Blong Mi? (Which is heard early in the film and was used in the trailer). Reportedly Klaus Badelt was the one who rearranged that one.

Zimson reply Replies: 1 || 2014-05-29 07:24:42
Did Hans have something to do with "God U Tekem Laef Blong Mi"?

Paul Maher Jr.2015-03-25 16:12:20
These Melanesian recordings were commissioned by Malick himself. After principal shooting, Malick and a recording engineer named Claude Letessier went into Guadalcanal and recorded hours of these chants, which were taught to them by missionaries in the 18th and 19th centuries. After the film was released theatrically, Malick produced a CD of most of what they found in the bush, so to speak.

Empire Magazine posted a Spotify playlist which includes tracks that Gareth Edwards used as inspiration for his new Godzilla movie. The playlist includes the tracks "The Lagoon" and "Air" from The Thin Red Line, but they list Gavin Greenaway as the composer of those track. Is this legit? Are those tracks mostly his compositions?

trent easton navarro2014-04-26 12:45:08
With film scores Spotify often credits the conductor instead of the composer. If you look The Thin Red Line up on spotify you'll see all tracks are credited to Greenaway. A couple of Elfman scores are credited to Artie Kane

Paul Maher Jr2012-11-24 17:28:08
This may well be legit, but it also reflects music made for the edited cut of the film and not the hours of unedited film that also had cues written specifically for them.

I happen to have Fox's cue sheet and the titles are different. The list above also lacks the several Lupica/Scott/ beam cues that Malick has also used in The New World, The Tree of Life and To the Wonder.

I do wish that this was released. it is almost criminal to hold out on us.

Bioscope2012-11-26 06:32:33
Ok, there's another cue list out there from FOX? Please show us this cue sheet so we can compare...

PM2012-11-26 18:16:13
It isn't "out there." It's in my possession. The cue sheet reflects the final edit of the film. The one presented here represents longer cues corresponding to the everchanging edits of the film.

Also, there are variants. For example, what we know of as "Journey to the Line" has, in the film, Charles Ives tagged on to it, which is the original temp music Malick used. He wanted Zimmer to compose something as close as possible to Ives, but apparently Malick chose to go with Ives. The way it was composed is represented on the official release. Also, "Journey to the Line" was considered the first piece of music accepted by Malick as aligning with what he wanted. Before that, he had an array of classical music compositions, like Benjamin Britten for example (used during the scene of Witt's death) for hsi temp score. Zimmer's music was also influenced by the Melanesian songs recorded by Claude Lettesier at Guadalcanal. Then there is the Cosmic Beam and the Kodo drums Malick was fond of that found there way into Media Ventures. So, Zimmer's job was difficult, but made even moreso by the influx of many other musical elements brought into the fold of the post-production process.

inspector mittens2012-11-26 19:01:33
When Zimmer said that he considers The Thin Red Line one of his best scores i was like WTF, OK it is good, but amongst the best?!

And now when I heard whole recording sessions and I couldn't agree more. Only when you hear the whole thing you will understand that this is THE masterpiece! Unfortunately you won't get much from the official soundtrack which is too shallow in my opinion, so I truly hope someone will release this on as much discs as needed, because it IS worthy of that!

PM2012-11-26 23:17:33
to make sense of this list, go by this: 1m00 is the cue number. The first number "1" means reel 1, the "m" means music. The cues are numbered in sequence in the order they play in the film. Some composers like to restart the numbering with each new reel - e.g. 1m12, 1m13, followed by 2m1, 2m2 etc. Hans like likes all the numbers to run in one sequence - e.g. 6m22, 7m23. Missing numbers were dropped or combined cues.

This list is late in the editing process, probably one of the final edits before they dropped Bead's death and shortened the sequence where Witt travels alone to another island. The overall narrative as it was released still stands with these exceptions.

The Beam cues are missing with the exception of the "Cosmic Beam Drone" and "Concerto for Beam" which is John Powell's orchestration of a dropped cue called "Peaceful Beam." The Lupica/Beam sessions were done separately from Zimmer's work with music editor Lee Scott and probably totals about 5 hours worth of recordings by itself (the Beam was difficult to record to any degree of satisfaction because of the distortion it created). Lupica's original tapes from the 70s, including "Sit Back and Relax," had to be baked and then reedited for use in the film and trailer. So, out of thirty hours of music on the Avid, it was dwindled down to 5 in the dubbing stage.

Comparing a fan website to Nazi Germany? Classy, guys. And can we just install an automatic filter that deletes every post using the word "elitist"?

This website already tells us fans a lot more than we'd otherwise know and there's only so much they're allowed to tell. So yes, they are "hiding information to the population" because there's a such thing as "invasion of privacy" (not to mention "copyright infringement"), which the site could easily find itself being charged of if they let every dubious fan edited tracklist and pseudo-"recording sessions" be posted. Every forum needs mods, it's how the Internet works.

One word from the others in charge or from HZ and I'll remove all of them in 5 min. That's not an issue... :)

brb2012-10-27 09:40:01
no need to remove anything at all. you guys hiding informations, telling us, that these aren't allowed to be posted, but when something leaks on the net, the first place where it is filled with that information, it's and i don't mean the comments here, but you're opening a new topic for that session or expanded one.

so what's the deal? people posting in their comments aren't allowed and they get deleted immediatly, but the crew from this website it's allowed. i'm just not getting it now.

and this website isn't nazi-germany, but the methods you're practising are almost the same. you've heard from propaganda? only letting informations to the people you want. if there is someone who has more informations for the people, he will be banned or all his messages and all the following messages from other people will be deleted without loosing a word.

i like this place here alot, but sometimes the behaviour from the staff is just ridicilous.

Antas, Webmaster2012-10-27 10:36:24
@brb : Do you really think we delete so many posts ? you are wrong. We just delete posts from peole who ask for bootlegs. Nothing else

Jimmer2012-10-27 14:06:21
I agree with @brb. There is definitely a double for just the casual fan and these moderators. I think the mods are acting like a bunch of pricks when they delete posts that list complete tracklists and then post the same exact thing on their own. Dick move.

JM2012-10-28 00:44:29
Well said, brb and Jimmer.

brb2012-10-28 08:39:04
@Antas: I respect you very much and am thankful for this platform you've brought to us. i visit this site many times in one day, just because i love zimmers music and from RCP.

but that you're deleting only some posts where someone asks for bootlegs is wrong, I'm sorry. so many times i've seen how complete conversations have been deleted, and in these conversations there haven't been any posts at all with "can i have it", "send me this". no! there were normal discussions about the material, about the cues, about what there exists, what the differences are etc. and within a second huge discussions have been deleted, just because YOU want to hide that information. within a second the place where we all discussed were empty. and no one ever have mentioned the deletion, just like it has never existed.

and that scares me, as that reminds me alot of those methods that former forces have used to hide information to the people and telling them different stories to believe and not the truth.

i'm sorry that i've opened the discussions here, at this topic about the most beautiful music ever written by hans, but i hope you're understanding my frustration, that information and music should be for everyone out there, and not only for some of you. music has been written to be enjoyed, it's another language, it's a language that everyone understands, and i don't think it's right that this music should be hidden to the public (that is zimmers and productions fault, i know). but don't do the same with informations, as informations should be open for everyone who wants to read them!

Hybrid Soldier2012-10-28 08:41:27
And you just have an example below of what the hell is going wrong.

brb2012-10-28 08:52:06
@hybrid: yes, these, and ONLY these things should be deleted, but not the discussions about the sessions, which have happened many times!

mittens2012-10-28 16:28:22
I agree. Discussions about trading and obtaining bootlegs should be deleted (this is not the place), but posting informations (e.g. tracklist posted above) must be allowed because ultimately this is what this site is about. Posting informations. Of course, unless HZ specifically said not to post Thin Red line and Gladiator recording sessions, which I highly doubt.

I agree. Show mw the money. Nobody likes a tease, and trading is becoming and outmoded pastime. It doesn't speed up the process of other leaks, all leaks are pretty random and a matter of good fortune. If anything, one generous leak may lead to another faster than this crap of "if you show me yours I show you mine". now show me the one about the general that became a slave, David :-)

Don't forget this is an official place here. Hans & his team visit these pages regularly and we/they don't accept any reference to bootleg/unofficial release anymore. Thank You

Anonymous2012-10-08 08:31:08
Antas yo say hans and his team visit your website and don't accept references to bootleg or unnofficial release. So why keep posting complete bootleg scores. Ask Hybrid why he post those "bootleg" scores?? Please Antas, in your banner you say "no longer with Remote Control Productions" now you change that banner to "Almost Official Site". So what's the game??

Tim2012-10-08 08:53:09
yup, what's the difference between those tracklists that david have posted and the tracklist to the bootlegs that hybrid is posting here?

and i highly doubt hans is reading here, but hey, if it's so, dear hans, release already your scores as recording sessions. not for free, we all want to pay for it, to enjoy your music in your fully length! we're waiting so many years for the lion king, the thin red line, last samurai, gladiator, the fan, and all those great scores, but what do we have in hand? 40 minutes of each score.

just look at the thin red line, 3h movie, over 7h music written, and we have only about 40 minutes of it?

please take care of your fans who wanna enjoy your beautiful work in its full glory and stop that elitest bull-shit that makes some of them here as they're the chosen one and feeling themself bigger then others. is this the message of music? that some of them think they have more power then the others? no! music is for everyone, so release please your scores how they should been released.

but then again, i don't believe that anyone of RCP or even hans is reading here.

Antas, Webmaster2012-10-08 11:04:57
@Anonymous : The banner depends on the composer's page : For Klaus Badelt or Trevor Rabin, the banner is not the same because they asked us to not associtate their name with Hans Zimmer.

David 2012-10-08 17:06:55
I don't know about 7 hrs of music written, but what's on that tracklist I posted is a little over 5 hrs. I wouldn't call it bootleg, it's the sessions, therefore, they're legit

Per2012-10-08 18:19:09
Anything not properly licensed etc. from the owner(s) of the music would be considered bootleg material...

Agent Smith2012-10-08 19:44:45
@David: do you have the score or just the tracklist?

Anonynous2012-10-08 20:13:13
@David, yes that's right. The original footage of The Thin Red Line it was about 6 hours, and then cut to 3 hours. So Zimmer and his team wrote more or less 5 to 6 hours of music. David posted a tracklist and this has over 5 hours of music, and like David said, the original recording sessions. So David, please give us the great honor to hear the recording sessions for this and Gladiator too. Thanks

Jimmer2012-10-08 20:35:17
I concur, please @David share your sessions. It's high time this and Gladiator, as well as others, see the light of day.

Oh please, come on...
Most "elitists", as you call them, here aren't a bunch of wine-drinking egocentric and greedy people listening to their precious complete scores while making fun out of YOU. They are random, passionate, and usually nice people who decided to get smart and to try to send a few e-mails or give phone calls to "the right persons".

These boards are full of people complaining, but they all remain passive. Think about how those "elitists" were able to find those scores. Try to be a little smart and creative, and I'm sure you'll get a bunch of your long-awaited scores within a month. Why to the other ones should always do the job for YOU ? Seriously.

I just watched this film for the first time, and on Blu-ray, courtesy of Criterion. It was an excellent movie, and Zimmer's score is magnificent. One of his best. I really must say though, the track "Sit Back and Relax" (my favorite one off the OST) does NOT play at all where I thought it would. It's interesting hearing music and trying to put images to it. I guess this just comes with the territory of listening to a film score before seeing the actual film.

Just thought I'd mention that, and see what anyone else has to say. Areozz, perhaps? You and I seemed to click when we both partook in that Inception nonsense last week....

I've just seen on Klaus Badelts homepage that he has 3 bonus tracks for the The Thin Red Line. Ok the third one is God U tekem Laef Blong Mi, but the others are variants of it and orchester version.

OK so we know Hans wrote hours of music and only some made it to film. But does anyone have a kind of rough film order of this commercial score?

Mr Tweedy2011-07-05 09:33:30
Hans explained that he wrote a big amount of music before the shooting/editing of the film. The music was used on the set to have all the team in the right "mood".
Hans composed music based on key words, feelings... Some bits of music were recorded separately (the melanesian chants), and of course, some cues were written afterwards, for the pictures.
They edited heavily all those sources of music for the pictures, so there's no real "chronological order". I think you have to consider the film and music as two completely different pieces, both inspired by each other. You'd better listen the music "as a whole".

Poe2011-07-05 09:51:19
No I get all that but surely there is at least a rough order for this?

Mr Tweedy2011-07-05 13:17:05
If you want to create a "rough chronological order", you should edit heavily nearly every cue... As they are standalone pieces, you'd have to butcher them !

Some cues aren't even used in the movie (Stone in my Heart - if I remember correctly)...

You can keep "The Corall Atoll" at the beginning of your order (as it contains music from the opening), and "Silence" can be considered as the closing cue of the movie.
"Air" would be just before "Silence".
"Sit Back and Relax" should be put in the middle of the order (used during the assault on the hill), "The Lagoon" before "Air"... I should watch the movie before continuing with this "rough" order...

Poe2011-07-05 18:21:05
Huge thanks, Tweedy. Thats a start. I would be interested to know your further thoughts on a list if you get to seeing the movie.

Poe2011-07-09 21:32:57
Any news on this, Mr Tweedy?

Trent Easton Navarro2011-07-10 10:56:55
@ Poe

It's been a while since I last saw it, but I'll give it a go:

1, The Coral Atoll (although the second half plays later on in the film during the bombing of the hill if I remember correctly)
2, The Lagoon (part of it plays on the scene on the ship before they go to the island. I believe it was also used again somewhere towards the ending)
3, Sit Back and Relax (like Mr Tweedy said, used during the assault of the hill)
4, Beam (used when John Cusack's character is send to investigate the bunker on the hill together with Pvt. Bell)
5, Journey to the Line (assault on the village)
6, Light (Staros' farewell)
7, Air (Witt's run to woods while followed by the Japanese)
8, Silence (ending of the film)
9, God U Taken Laef Blong Mi (end credits)

Stone in my Heart isn't used in the film. Not sure, but I believe The Village also wasn't used. I think this probably as close as it gets to a chronological order. Hope it helps.

Mr Tweedy2011-07-10 14:43:23
Thanks Trent Easton Navarro for your support ! :)

The last part of "The Corall Atoll" also contains music from the investigation on the hill. But I think this part wasn't fully used in the movie (only a minute or so...).
The middle section of the Corall Atoll contains Nick Nolte's character theme. Don't know exactly where this variation fits into the movie (it always sounds shorter in the movie).

If I remember correctly, the last minutes of "The Lagoon" are used during the river scene, just before "Air". I don't remember hearing "The Village" at all in the movie. I think there's a variation on "Light" (a few minutes after the original "Light" cue) which is much more "synthy".

"God U tekem" is part of the credits, but has an instrumental variation (unreleased) that is used a few times for the character Witt. There's also another traditional chant ("God U Holem Hands Blong Mi") which is used several times.

Recording Session reply Replies: 19 || 2011-05-31 10:16:18
After reading this:

"Zimmer wrote several hours of music, with several different themes, even before Malick started to shoot the film. The director then played the music on the set, while filming, to get himself, and the rest of the crew and actors in the right frame of mind. Zimmer and collaborator John Powell composed over four hours of music on this film, presumably for the original director's cut of the film. However, when director Terrence Malick re-cut the film down to its current running time of 170 minutes, he chose only a few select pieces of music from Zimmer's and Powell's musical contributions, along with original source music, and much of Zimmer's compositions were cut."

I'm totally mad that this beautiful score does only have that less of music released. My goodness, why? Please can't they just release it now as a full Recording Session? Or damn, even leak this thing?...

Oh man, how i want this so bad. This is the MOST beautiful score from Hans Zimmer, and it's a shame we don't have all the music, now almost 14 years and until now only those few tracks and there exists more then 4 (!!!) hours of this beautiful music? Come on people, make your voice loud. WE WANT A RECORDING SESSION! Please...

Bador2011-05-31 14:51:25
4 hours TTRL? W-O-W... WANT!

Jimi2011-06-01 09:52:43
does even the 4 hours recording session exists?

Levente2011-06-01 10:27:12
Hans said on the criterion edition of the movie that he did all the music before Mallick even started shooting the movie, and he and Powell did roughly 4-5 hours of music, which was later selected by Mallick himself and edited into the movie. He also composed some stuff after Mallick finished the movie and worked with the editors in the 15 months process they edited the movie.

Or for example it was later cut out from the movie and was replaced by other composers like: Charles Ives, Arvo Pärt or Gabriel Fauré.

So I'm quessing Zimmer wrote more than 4 hours, but no news, no rumors on the the net about this recording session for several years. If the two Batman OST leaked so easily, The Thin Red Line should had been available alredy.

Gambit2011-06-01 10:44:06
my only guess that we haven't seen until yet from this 5 hours music collection is, that Remote Control uses the unreleased music as temp-tracks or samples or even are using them for other movies.

Just look over Elliot Goldenthals score to "Public Enemies". You'll find the track "Beam" and many others that seems to be from TTRL ("JD dies" for example).

Levente2011-06-01 10:56:41
In Public Enemies Zimmer's score was used as temp track, and even so one was used in the movie too, as you said the track called Beam. Even some unreleased stuff was given by Hans himself, thats why he is credited in the end, in the thanks section.

b00bs2011-06-01 10:56:46
I read Zimmer keeps telling people his score for the film is so much more - and so different - than what you hear in the film. He thinks its his best score, just not the version as we know it. Which really makes me hope we someday will hear more from it.

Fry2011-06-01 11:04:44
@ Levente: Do you know perhaps which tracks have been exactly given from Hans TTRL score for Public Enemies? Or just those two tracks that have been mentioned here (Beam and JD Dies)?

Hybrid Soldier2011-06-01 11:04:51
And for Public Enemies, not only HZ was thanked in the credits, but people from RCP did work on the score. Jacob Shea did some arrangements & programmings... ;)

Smith2011-06-01 11:18:42
does anyone know about this "different music" that b00bs have posted? Is this legit?

Why on earth haven't this released already aaaaaaah :O hehehe :P

Levente2011-06-01 11:56:57
@ Fry: JD Dies is an original composition by Goldenthal himself. The style is a bit similar to The Thin Red Line some people says, but I think it is more close to Goldenthal's Titus score.

The only "song" that stayed in movie from TTRL is Beam. And you can only hear it for a couple of seconds.

Alan2011-06-01 12:42:07

sorry for making pressure hybrid, but you are the only one we know who has contact to RC.
And why THIS score? Because it's Hans masterpiece. The only score where Hans says, that this is really good. He always says to the other score that it's ok, but still not good for him. I'm sure he is only saying it so but loves them all ;) But still, he always said how much he loves TTRL. So i thought you could be asking if something could be released, or just "The Journey in Line" with those drums like in the movie.

Like you made it with Inception for these two tracks, now here for this only one track.

Please it would be soooooooo kind from you Hybrid. I know there are a lot of users who wants this too.
