No GITS cannot be released, it's technically not possible... That's why Lorne leaked his part of the score himself...This is great news.Maybe Balfe’s scores to Ghost in the Shell now can get released.<br>Over 6000 people have signed the petition for Ghost.yea, that should be enough for meIt's comforting to get a reconfirmation that it's coming. <br>Now we'll just have to cross our fingers that the process doesn't take months like that one other release ;) <br><br>Which one will be out first: End Credits or X-Periments? :Pyes!yes!yes!<br>i can't wait!!!!!!!
And I can tell you Hans brought the matter to the very head of Disney Music... Everyone seems game to release it, just need to work out some technicalities...He mentions the Dark Phoenix second CD here. 20:33 onwards.<br><br>https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=mHmKZbUZiIA<br><br>"I did a film recently that got away, but we wrote 16 hours of music. We're actually fighting to get another CD released because the film didn't do anything, just to have it out there. Because you can't use again in something else, so it'd be nice to have it out there. So that it doesn't disappear into a rubbish bin".Life's Not Fair first part is similar > Tears of the Sun - Yekeleni Part 1 lolAny idea on the name of the song from the trailer?Honestly the biggest problem with this new version for me is the lack of new variants of the themes. They mostly just repeat verbatim Hans' original ideas with little to no innovation or changes made most of the time. <br><br>It also doesn't help that cues that did have wonderful variations such as "Nala Attacks", and "Nala & Simba" have been shortened to mostly cut them out. The worst cut being  for the ending to "Mufasa's Ghost" which originally peaked the emotion with that lovely variation of Simba/The One True King theme transitioning into the Pride Rock theme, all of which is absent now.
The comic con trailer for Season 3 looks excellent.<br><br>Really looking forward to next season & score.<br><br>I saw some early 1900 world. (One of the other parks?) Hope Djawadi does something cool with that.<br><br>Very excitedAfter Original Score<br><br>Tracklist:<br>1. Opening (1:33)<br>2. Class Start (0:51)<br>3. Tessa Meets Hardin (1:40)<br>4. Hardin in the Cafe (0:47)<br>5. Party Kiss (1:10)<br>6. Text in Bed (1:30)<br>7. Sotto’s Class (1:08)<br>8. The Lake Kiss (4:18)<br>9. Touched on the Dock (1:46)<br>10.

Main Theme (2:20)<br><br>Hybrid this score is good?It's indeed a shame so much mhsic is missing from the official album.<br><br>Love to hear more!how about credits for the LLL set then?I'm just curious why there's so much dead air in the FYC tracks. Cues like "Shut it Down", "Burton Visits Prime Minister", or "Megatron has Squeeks" just have nothing to them! <br><br>No themes to speak of besides one horn blast of "Quintessa", no interesting melodies, or rhythm, just dead electronics and weak-feeling drums and strings which really doesn't fit in with the series' style. Not even the fourth movies'.
Thanks Hybrid for explaining that. Makes more sense now.Yes it is because the FYC is horrible... The OST is what Steve & co wrote. The FYC is what came out of the Music Editing Factory, which I don't dig at all. Lots of micro edits & transformations Steve probably didn't even hear... lol<br><br>Real final mixes would look like the OST, not like the FYC...You gotta realize one thing, this score is US recorded so every new 15 min of score you release, you gotta pay back reuse fees. So it's very complicated & costy and that's why they released "only" 15 min of extra score.<br><br>If it was recorded in the UK, they could have released 2 hours of bonus tracks it wouldn't have cost anything more... :)<br><br>As for a chrono order, since all cues are mixed together in different tracks in the OST, it gets complicated... It works like that :<br><br>ARTHUR => Theme Suite + 5m30 + 1m05<br>KINGDOM OF ATLANTIS => 3m20-21<br>IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE => 1m01 + 1m04B<br>ATLANTEAN SOLDIERS => Theme Suite + 5m33 + 2m12<br>WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? => Theme Suite<br>THE LEGEND OF ATLAN => 6m39 + 4m23<br>SWIMMING LESSONS => 3m19 + 3m19B + 3m19C<br>THE BLACK MANTA => Theme Suite + 9m69<br>WHAT COULD BE GREATER THAN A KING? => 7m54 + 7m55 + 7m55A<br>PERMISSION TO COME ABOARD => 9m64 + 2m07<br>SUITED AND BOOTED => 8m57 + 8m59<br>BETWEEN LAND AND SEA => 7m51 + 8m61<br>HE COMMANDS THE SEA => 8m60 + 9m65<br>MAP IN A BOTTLE => 6m42 + 8m56<br>THE RING OF FIRE => 5m29 + 8m62<br>REUNITED => 9m68<br>TRENCH ENGAGED => 7m52<br>MERA MONTAGE => 6m43B + 6m48<br>HOME INVASION => 1m04 + 3m15<br>SAVING POPS => 3m18<br>AHAB WAVES => 3m17 + 2m06B<br>ASK THE SEA => 2m08B<br>OBLIGATION => 5m32<br>DUNES => 5m37-38Heitor Pereira, Satnam Ramgotra and Richard Harvey are credited musiciansSounds like a Zimmer version of the Top Gun Anthem to me. Whoever did it, it works!

Does anyone know if there will be a score release for Home? There's a measly 30 minute song album, which doesn't include any score cues.


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-20 12:39:57
There will be ! :)


Matt2015-03-20 13:32:09
Yes! Thanks Hybrid - I knew you'd know. I really enjoyed Penguins so I'm looking forward to it. You don't know when to expect it?


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-20 16:16:47
No dates yet, I asked a few days ago... But it's gonna be released soon. :)


Pablo Reyes2015-03-21 15:02:53
That's freaking awesome! A few days ago I asked Lorne and he said he wasn't sure. I guess we know now!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 7 || 2014-11-15 16:31:27
I added an extract if you wanna check... :)


Ds2014-11-15 16:39:00
Thanks Hybrid, have you heard the full thing?


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-15 16:42:29
Yes I have ! As you can see in the extract it's very orchestral. It uses Jim Dooley's "traditional" Penguins theme a few times. No other link with Madagascar. Sounds more Megamind to me than Madagascar actually... :)


Ds2014-11-15 17:28:53
Good, I like the Megamind score. But too bad there's no Madagascar theme, because it puts a big smile on my face every time I hear it :p

Especially since this freaking amazing performance in London, I couldn't believe it but this piece from Madagascar was incredible.


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-15 17:30:44
Yeah but it's the Madagascar theme, for those characters... Alex, Gloria, Marty & Melman are not here... Why would there be their theme ? It makes no sense... The Penguins had their own theme & style, which is used here... :)


Ds2014-11-15 17:48:40
I don't remember the penguins having their own theme in the Madagascar movies... which is where they belong, first of all! I thought the TV spin-off would not be connected to any movie, that's why I hoped kind of a connection with Madagascar :-)


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-15 17:49:54
Just listen Whacked Out Conspiracy from Mada 1... lol


badbu2014-11-25 20:34:33
So good! :)

This score will be released, the album is ready ! :)


Ds2014-11-02 21:04:44
Yeah, awesome! Do you know if Balfe reused the main theme from Madagascar, or started completely fresh?


Felix2014-11-02 21:20:33
It would be so cool :D


Radik2014-11-04 22:15:28
Great, first bigger solo Lorne's project :))


Mike2014-11-04 22:35:02
Ds, I can't imagine that he WOULDN'T reuse the theme from Madagascar, seeing as he's been involved with the other ones... ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-04 22:51:23
I highly doubt that, it'll be all original I think...
