Well, considering there's a lot more advanced orchestral writing in a lot of Transformers: The Game (which was composed by Jablonsky and Flood), than in many of Steve's other projects, I can't help but feel the more advanced stuff here was Flood too. Plus Flood's contribution to "Flying Battle" in D-War kind of makes him seem like the more advanced orchestra composer.Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: <br><br>Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)<br>Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)<br>Wonderland (Mark Theme)<br><br>Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.Some credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: Flashback, and Flying Battle<br><br>Sadly no credits for Pieter A. Schlosser that I've been able to find...
The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite. <br><br>It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.<br><br>I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door. <br><br>Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.
Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there MikealTypical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>
so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.Heh, if it's anything like the 1994 score, then you'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.

Hybrid - do you have any news or actual tracks for Oats? The trailers look amazing

Micheal reply Replies: 0 || 2017-06-13 23:30:22
Detroit will be amazing with Lorne's score . Beyond Two Souls was one of the most amazing game soundtracks ever . The trailer for Detroit sound cool. Hybrid - is there a release date ?

For everyone who is enjoying this insane flood of Lorne music; take a listen to both this score and Beyond Two Souls. Easily two of his best works, you can definitely hear Lorne's voice in them.


Emilio2017-06-11 18:07:45
Never heard of this sound track before but thank you for recommending it . Sounds very interstellar but then I see it was before intersteller ! Thank you for sharing


MichaeThomas2017-06-11 18:26:09
Never heard of this film ? Just bought the soundtrack now after listen to the examples .very very enjoyable . Balfe is becoming my favorite composer from Remote since John Powell


PetersMorg2017-06-11 19:22:50
I can not seem to find the film on line ? The music is great. Balfe is amazing this year


mpolonest1232017-06-11 19:58:46
Glad you guys enjoy it! :-) The film is online, you just have to search for it.

The funny thing about Lorne is that he is one of the only composers who can make a fake orchestra sound just as good as a real one. His "Beckett" demo from AWE, for example, is insanely good and shows a true talent for writing for writing engaging, muscular action music.


JarMun2017-06-11 22:03:11
Agreed . Beckett sounded amazing.i prefer his smaller projects. Lorne's music is intamit and special


Rigby2017-06-11 22:58:38
Another great score of Lorne Balfe is AC3. The Father and Son cue is so emotional and powerful, and the main theme itself is killer!!!


Dan2017-06-12 13:36:51
This music is great . I hadn't even heard of the film before now so thank you for the suggestion


Anonymous2017-06-13 10:35:49
i think the Detroit Become Human - E3 2017 Trailer has Lorne Balfe his music as well. Sounds like his sound


Lussy2017-06-13 17:30:38
Trailer defiantly sounds like Balfe . The trailer last year they released for Detroit had his music and he was talking about it in twitter . Hard to be Beyond Two Souls. His music was unbelievable

The music sounds as if it was performed by an actual orchestra. Was it really? It shows no credits about it, only for the solo Violin and Cello o:


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-02 16:54:09
Nope it was not !

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 3 || 2015-03-26 08:39:06
This score will be released by Lakeshore soon... Love it, one of my favorite Lornes... :)


Blooshy2015-03-26 16:49:58
That's a definitive good new ;). More and more Balfe!


Felix2015-03-28 13:23:02
Yes, more Balfe, I love his music so much!


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-20 21:57:10
