I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.<br><br>I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.
Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent newsNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not Balfe again and again and again :(Hey, everybody!<br>Did you hear the news?<br>Check this out:<br>https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=962210980613161& id=138474459653488Yes and no.<br><br>If we take into account that King Arthur is reminiscent of Crimson Tide, The Rock, The Peacemaker and Backdraft his contributions also pale because it is fair to say that King Arthur were based with the music of these films.
There's a video on YouTube. The video shows Howard Shore writing and conducting the music for the orchestra. The video also shows Howard Shore and Peter Jackson talking about the score. After that, Peter Jackson rejected the score writing one statement about that saying Howard and he discuss about the music many times, Howard recorded many cues but in the process Peter he wasn´t satisfied about the music. That thing created many discussions, they could not agree in terms of music so Peter fired Howard after that saying he prefered keep Howard as a friend. And then the hobbit came and the rest, well, the relation was not the same. <br><br>So there's like 50 to 70% percent of the music recorded by Howard Shore. He didn't finish the recordings, so, yes, there's a rejected score recorded. And then, James came aboard.Of course he's involved !Finally some news about this movie! I really hope Powell is involved because his scores for the first two moves are fantastic. I love them so much.Well "Prime" for TF2 is part of the main theme "Knights March" from King Arthur which Jablonsky co-composed so I really don't have a problem with a lot of the temps from King Arthur in Transformers. Specifically because Jablonsky did a lot of the main tracks for that score.Yeah, specially the "Prime" track from Transformers 2
Some of Transformers was temped from King Arthur.Thank you :D<br>indeed, Bumblebee has the same vibe with the orchestral and guitar sound, and I guess GoT was temp tooI was at a test screening for RUSH (sitting directly behind Ron Howard and Hans himself!) - and the entire film was heavily temped with Transformers. Specifically "Bumblebee", which opened and closed the film in a very powerful way. There was a lot more transformers throughout. <br><br>Powell's not mentioned in that article at all...but I think we can assume he will indeed be back.Powell is Back!!!<br>-https://www.empireonline.com/movies/train-dragon-hidden-wor ld/train-dragon-3-hidden-world/-

man... i forgot how much i loved this score. too bad the movie, i heard, didn't do too well.

It’s interesting to see the director making short films instead of big movies .he was also ment to the new alien movie


Max Potcats2018-02-10 12:33:42
Also I found this great that he is actually involved in the score, he is credited for "We Own This Sky"

I've searched for days for the song at the end credits the soft beat, I can't find it anywhere. It also plays when he gets beat up and is on a hill with a dog but still no luck. I've listened to all the original soundtracks but is there a name or place I can download this track? It's driving me crazy

If you check out Rich Walters site (desktop version) he has three unreleased tracks you can hear...

Tetravall Tour
Vincent Causes Riot
Shutting Down the Droids



Hedon2016-09-18 17:25:20
Were these used in the movie? They sound like demos to me.


Halö2016-09-18 18:52:31
As there were no orchestra recordings on this score it can't really be demos, but maybe an early version.


mpolonest1232016-09-18 18:54:09
Yeah... I hear it too. They lack the "beefier" sound of the album. 'Vincent Causes Riot' is 100% in the film though.


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-18 20:11:57
No they are not.

Tetravaal Tour was completely replaced in the film by another cue.

The other 2 are in the film but they were clearly rearranged after.

Very nice though, one is actually better than its film version !


Hedon2016-09-19 01:36:22
I thought so, they don't sound as rich, spacious and organic like the rest of the score. Interesting as Rich is listed as synth programmer.

When you compare the two you realize how much effort that had to be put into the score to make it sound as good as it does despite being all electronics. It's remarkable how well Zimmer succeeds in making his electronic music sound organic, flowing and lifelike.


Steve H.2016-09-19 04:56:35
Where would these new tracks go chronologically?.


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-19 11:53:48
Tetravaal Tour is the second cue in the film, right after A Dangerous City...

Vincent's Firmware Update and Riot go before "You Lied to Me".

Thanks! Looks like Steve worked on virtually all my favourite cues :)


Hybrid Soldier2015-05-31 18:32:31
I had spoken to someone who worked on the score at Interstellar Live and he was saying Steve did a big part of the score... :)


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-01 09:11:46
Yeah, it's a pretty straight 1:1 match - Mazzaro's cues are the cool ones and Kawczynski's are the annoying ones. :p


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-01 09:55:27
Welcome To The Real World ?

Best scene of the film, one of the best cues ! :)


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-01 10:47:45
Never saw the movie, and the second half of that cue is OK, but I don't much like the first half.

Of the Kawczynski tracks my favorite is probably "Illest Gangsta on the Block", actually. :P


Hedon2016-08-04 12:59:05
I LOVE Steve's work on this score. I am so happy he's working with HZ, if I see "HZ + SM" on a cue it's certain to be good. Really really hope there will be a Chappie 2 and HZ and SM returns do to the score!

The analogue Vangelis-ish electronic sound Zimmer & Co brought to Chappie is mesmerizing, wish we would hear this sound more often. As Vangelis has pretty much retired from film scoring, I wish to see Zimmer & Mazzaro follow in his roots as they seem to have the skills and equipment to do it.


mpolonest1232016-08-04 14:02:58
I'm surprised to see Ryan Amon's name here, what input did he have?

I re-watched this movie this week and finally the score is very good. There are many more good musics than in the CD (which is misleading).
Anyone knows if an Expanded score is planned ? Because it's really frustrating, like the Thin red line's official score :)


Ds2015-06-16 14:14:21
WTF? I thought the album was really perfect and contained every single piece of original material heard in the movie. The rest is only alternate versions of other tracks, I don't remember hearing anything different in the movie. But I only saw the movie once, so I may be wrong.


Frenchans2015-06-16 14:49:13
Ds, you will see again the scene when Chappie is initialized (with the chicken, when he said his first words). This is the beginning of "We Own the Sky" or "Never Break a promise" and some beautiful chords.
On the whole, the film version is clearly better !


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-16 15:44:34
Yeah there's quite a lot of unreleased actually... Nothing that stuck with me much while seeing the film the first time, but when I got the cuesheet I took a deeper look and indeed there's a lof of unreleased, some are quite cool cues... I can post the cuesheet later actually, it's not like it's a hidden thing... lol


Frenchans2015-06-16 17:18:43
Thanks Hybrid but, at the risk of sounding idiot, the cuesheet is an audio file ? :)


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-16 19:14:01

What's with Blomkamp's credit?


Scorefan2015-06-17 20:22:13
So Hybrid the oficial album have only music from Zimmer and company, but in the cuesheets there are music from Ryan Amon and others. Those cues are in the film or are unreleased?


Frenchans2015-06-17 23:32:53
Nevertheless, I really do not understand why the music, in the best scene of the movie (in my view) and maybe the most important, is unreleased... Furthermore it's the theme !

Who are the persons in charge of the contents of the CD ? Certainly people who do not know how to appreciate the Zimmer's music...


JamesT2015-07-01 04:21:49
I was so impressed by the score initially (huge fan of the 90s synth scores from Hans (DOT, PH, RH, TR and esp PONR)....i love the analog string and saw wave sounds. This score FIT THE MOVIE PERFECTLY! I would love an expanded or complete score. One of my fav themes not on the CD is when the punks beat up Chappie, then it shows him on the railroad tracks disoriented, then walking up a hill over the city. It plays another time or two. The chord progression is superb! Thankfully, I recorded it from the end credits. One of my fav Hans & Co scores!

Anonymous reply Replies: 10 || 2015-03-13 02:06:37
Unfortunately, I think the score to Chappie is pretty crappy. Another great opportunity missed by Hans. Just more themeless electronica experimental stuff. Come on Hans, please PLEASE write real epic scores again.


Zimson2015-03-13 02:17:45
He explored that a lot. In fact, he seems to have grown tired of it.
He's the kind of guy who's always up to explore new horizons.


Leo2015-03-13 02:52:41
I don't know what you're on, there are at least two themes to be found in Chappie.


Ds2015-03-13 08:59:02
Hans always worked by periods. He started with soft synth-driven scores, then moved to electronic action scores (90s), then made (and became famous for) grand epic scores (2000s)... Now's the time for experimentation. If you don't like it, don't worry: the old scores still exist and we still can listen to them, so why do you complain??


bro2015-03-13 09:07:00
Yeah and unfortunately I think you are retarded.

The score is fucking brilliant.

Lambegue2015-03-15 03:59:36
I liked this score a lot, much more than most recent Zimmer's works...Funny to see how each of his scores from the last few years gets mixed reactions, even among Zimmer-lovers.

Whenever I listen a ost before watching the movie and I like, I'm afraid to go to the cinema because maybe the same movie not live up to the music. For example: Jupiter Ascending, which has a very good music but as a movie is a disaster.
But with Chappie has been one of those times when I leave the film even more eager to hear the music, because the images work together with Zimmer's music for an amazing way.

I'm more than a week in shock with this music, every day is a ritual hear it, hit my mind and the movie has finished breaking.

I do not understand the criticism towards it (or even to the music) but I must say, that Not Watch this film in Cinema is a serious mistake.

ENJOY.

Can I have an honest opinion, if HZ's name wasn't on this release, but it sounded exactly like it does now, would you guys still like it, or even know of it's existence?


Ds2015-03-04 21:54:07
Maybe, or maybe not. That´s the great thing about Hans: he keeps pushing the limits of his musical landscape and by doing so he opens our minds to styles we might not know or even like.


Zimson2015-03-04 22:27:04
Depends on who composed it. If it would have been Cliff Martinez I probably wouldn't have liked it, since he's the master of electronic soundscapes and Chappie doesn't quite match up to it.
The major reason I like the score is the "New-effect". He hasn't done this "8-bit-dance-whatever-step" thing yet so it's quite interesting to explore it. It's neither as enjoyable as TASM 2 nor has it many memorable moments but it's fresh as opposed to, let's say The Lone Ranger.
I need to watch the movie, though, to make a final statement.

The movie is a blast. Original, funny, touching, bombastic, insane. You dont see many movies like this today. And the score was freaking brilliant, capturing the energy and making a few scenes incredibly epic. Another good point is that most of the music is included in the album. There is some répétition and variation but nothing big is missing. Awesome output from Hans!


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-11 23:36:12
It's one of the worst things I've seen as of late (close companion to Jupiter Ascending). The few good things were killed by Die Antwoord... Too bad for the score, which is awesome... lol

Well I pity you because I had so much fun and you did not... Best movie I ve seen this year along with Kingsman.


Scorefan2015-03-12 00:39:29
I am one of few who really liked and enjoyed so much Chappie, Júpiter Ascending and Kingsman


...2015-03-12 06:57:47
The main problem in my opinion was that chappie is surrounded by utterly awful characters that we couldn't care less about. I was almost happy when one of them died.

The movie works best when Chappie is with his maker...they should have had more such scenes.


Ds2015-03-12 08:23:26
I agree but at the same time I think all those awful gangsta made us care even more for Chappie, who was really the best character in the movie. They were also just too funny :-D


Zimson2015-03-12 08:48:34
People seem to like the movie, though it's possibly gonna be a box office bomb. It currently has a 7,4 on imdb. But jeez, the critics really hate it.


...2015-03-12 09:53:38
The problem I had with the gangsters was that they can't act lol. I would have wanted them to come in later, after chappie had grown up a little with his maker.

The they could have damaged him and made him throw k Ives etc... Digit et weaver has 5 minutes of screen time and those guys who aren't real actors have like 1 hour 30 minutes...what's up with that?

And lol the security of that weapons company is definitively bollocks lol:)

But all in all I think the movie raises some interesting questions and whenever chappie is on screen, the movie is good! All in all though I think it doesn't work as there are major problems with it!


Zimson2015-03-12 11:01:50
Having social commentary in a movie is only good when it is subliminal.
Guess Blomkamp never heard of the distancing effect.


Ds2015-03-12 12:43:58
Die Antwoord can't act, but here they were just playing themselves so I didn't notice any bad acting.


Boldizar2015-03-12 12:54:41
I was not keen on this film after Elysium (which I though was simplistic and relatively pointless to spend time seeing) then I saw the trailer... and Die Antwoord. Then I really did not want to see it. Seriously why were they put in ANY movie? I only know who they are because I worked at a music store for several years.

On a good note, District 9... hell yes.


Macejko2015-03-12 16:23:32
I think that Yo-Landi was alright and pulled that "gangster-turned-mother" transition rather well. But Ninja, on the other hand... He seemed as the kind of guy that makes aliens postpone their visit of Earth. (Someone could actually pitch it to Blomkamp as a movie premise.) And, according to some reports, he was a huge dick to everyone on set (which doesn't surprise me at all... because, well, he chose "Ninja" as his pseudonym, you guys).

Considering Zimmer is more miss than hit for me the last couple of years (only scores I really loved were Sherlock Holmes, Rush and The Lone Ranger) I expected to hate this one as well after all I read about it. But damn, this is a great score!

Boldizar2015-03-11 21:05:47
TASM?


Zimson2015-03-11 21:15:39
"Turbo Assembler (TASM) is an assembler package developed by Borland which runs on and produces code for 16- or 32-bit x86 MS-DOS or Microsoft Windows."

Just joking here, but that's what google gave me.
Actually it means "The Amazing Spider-Man 2"


trent easton navarro2015-03-12 11:01:08
I dunno, TASM2 just didn't do it for me. It wasn't bad or anything, but I can't remember a single note of it.

Maybe I should give it another try


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-12 11:54:21
That's odd. I can think of many reasons why the TASM2 score might not appeal to someone but it's certainly not unmemorable.

It is a really emotional score in parts. Of course you get the awesome epic HZ sound but this is if you look closely a very emotional score...

In my opinion there's a great sadness throughout the movie with chappie and the gangsters he grows up with...

I like this score. Very cool!

Funny this is that this is a "no orchestra, entirely synth" score.

Yet, it sounds like all the other scores he has done since Inception which featured orchestras.

If Hans keeps writing this kind of music he really doesn't have to bother with orchestra if he mixes it to sound like synth. It's waste of budget

Someone needs to have their ears checked :-)


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-05 10:36:02
Man's got a point. On some of his scores (not all), I really do have to wonder why Hans even bothers getting an orchestra to record anything. Take Man of Steel...I really can't tell the difference in sound between the entirely-synthetic sketchbook and the (presumably) orchestral recordings in the rest of the score. If HZ had gone all-synth with that one nobody would have even noticed.

I don't like it. Makes the score sound cheap. I much prefer a more organic, "clean" synth-orchestral blend like TASM2.


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-05 11:15:42
The person who doesn't hear an orchestra in Inception has some serious issues... lol


Ds2015-03-05 11:36:44
Edmund, about Man Of Steel, don't forget that most of the cues are not orchestra-based. Everything related to Zod was all drums plus some additional electronic distorsion. All the "soft theme" is just Hans playing his piano, plus sampled instruments (the weird guitars he used to suggest wind on electrical wires). So there are just occasional bursts of orchestra... most of them in parts that are not included in the sketchbook.

For me the sketchbook really sounds like synth, I don't like listening to it very much, while I simply dig the score itself.


NM2015-03-05 19:38:12
Weirdly I actually love the Sketchbook, it's really cool hearing all the ideas hashed out in a raw form. I'd love to hear demos and sketches for other scores.


Macejko2015-03-05 20:04:16
I would pick this over that seriously overrated TASM2 score any day of the week. Chappie grows on me with every single listen. Hans has taken extremely fresh approach with it and it certainly shows. This unique score feels to me like a merger between 1980's and 2010's and I hope Hans explores this style more in the future. It's like a dirtier, grittier cousin to Daft Punk's Tron: Legacy, and I mean that as a compliment.

Awesome soundtrack! I have to admit... Hans' composed work had my blood pumping a whole lot more than Pedro Bromfman's work on RoboCop.


MrZimmerFan2015-03-04 18:26:15
Pedro Bromfman's Robocop is such a bad soundtrack, my god, i prefer this Chappie than that, in my opinion


T-Mann0362015-03-04 19:01:21
No doubt. Bromfman thinks he's the Brazilian Steve Jablonsky.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-05 10:33:52
What's with the random comparison to Robocop, of all things? Uh...both movies are about robots...so?

@Hybrid
Do you know if there is still any music in the movie or on this album composed by the original composers who were gonna do this movie (Ryan Amon and someone else)?



Hybrid Soldier2015-03-04 22:26:08
Rich Walters was kept in the final team...

As for the score in film let's see in a few days.

An "Additional Music" credit on the FRONT COVER? First we had JunkieXL credited directly on "Arcade" and "General Zod," then we had everyone credited as one on TASM2, and now this? My, times are changing!


Anonymous2015-03-03 20:53:56
It's about time too.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-04 10:09:40
It's a step up from those slightly shady "music produced by Lorne Balfe" credits on Inception and Sherlock Holmes. :p


Zimson2015-03-04 13:37:23
That's a role model for the whole industry. Hundreds of ghost writers never see the light of day.


Zimson2015-03-04 18:38:05
I meant light of day lol :D

I've listened it through now. This is completely out of the box for him. I guess the industry will change vastly in the future. The market will be overrun with music producers from all kinds of genres.

I love both hans orchestral and electronic scores, but I must say, this is not really my piece of cake. There are some moments where the typical hans harmonies can be heard and those are pretty awesome, and the soft tracks are nice, but some tracks are just dance beats...I hope there's some nice unreleased music in the movie, not heard on the ost.

Does anyone else feel like this about the score?


T-Mann0362015-03-04 17:44:19
Not entirely... but it's YOUR opinion that counts.

What a surprise, the entire album is already available on iTunes Belgium! Dont know if it´s normal or an iTunes mess up but I like it!!

Yeah French one too, I bought it in 2 minutes, I feared they released their "mistake"...

This score is... well I need to relisten, but there's some stuff in the second half, absolutely awesome ! :o


Orchestra lovers, fleeeee !


Ds2015-03-04 00:07:08
Same here, I was so afraid the download would stop or something. Still at track 4 and love it so far, at the same time extremely surprising. Some friends of mine who only like the orchestral Hans are going to have their ears on fire when they listen to this :-p


Ds2015-03-04 00:37:41
Mayhem Downtown, what a killer track :-O

Now lets hope this is mixed really loud in the movie. I guess you will tell us tomorrow, Hybrid?

"Illest Gangsta on the Block", what an odd track. A friend of mine does 8-bit dance tracks, he's going to love it. :)

Btw, just checked iTunes again and the album is gone. What the hell?

Cool! Right now I'm listening to the main theme song posted here, pure blooded Hans Zimmer! Don't know about other tracks but this one is awesome! And I like how he used synth vocals just enough (I hate when they overdo it when they want to sound more "epic").
