Was Anthony Willis responsible for crafting that gorgeous string passage from "Lando's Closet?Yep, Hans can be a musical genius when given the opportunity.I hope there is going to be a "Redbad" release. MdR is basically Trevor's best work, and I really want to hear what he did for the director's current film.Last Night, I edited for the Traffik's score DVD sfx by Geoff Zanelli it's an okay score, but it's more like mystery music.<br><br>Here's the unreleased score<br><br>1.DVD Menu - 0:58<br>2.Logo - 0:58<br>3.Everything's Gonna Work Out - 1:16<br>4.The Northern Pines - 0:41<br>5.It's Your Lucky Day - 0:30<br>6.Car Chase - 0:52<br>7.Brea & John Riding Together In The Car - 0:27<br>8.Vacation House - 1:30<br>9.Human Trafficking - 0:24<br>10.Give Me The Phone! - 0:39<br>11.It's The Basement & Darren's Death - 2:22<br>12.Find The Case - 0:16<br>13.Should We Check It Out? - 0:25<br>14.Upload The Information To The Computer - 1:44<br>15.Biker Guy Shot The Old Man - 0:20<br>16.John's Death - 1:25<br>17.Nice And Slow - 0:38<br>18.Malia & Brea In The Tunnel - 0:49<br>19.Brea Escapes From The Tunnel - 1:03<br>20.Brea Finds Another Gas Station - 1:16<br>21.Call The Police - 0:37<br>22.Cops Rescue The Trafficked Women - 1:33 <br> <br><br>;)
I'm guessing, based on the credits, that Williams worked on "Dice and Roll" directly?He is.i don't doubt it, he and the director are good frineds and fans of each other, also they worked together on Annabelle so I'm willing to bet money he's the composer which is AWESOMEWallfisch just Retweeted the Shazam! trailer. Does that mean he is scoring it then? Hybrid can you say anything about this?On Millers water planet, those ticking noises happen every 1.25 seconds. Each tick you hear is a while day passing on Earth.
@MikeOTM<br>Youíre absolutely right. Powell did an awesome job of staying within the musical sandbox of the SW musical universe but also was able to bring something fresh and original to the overall sound, something Star Wars really needs right now.Sweet. I've gotta say, this score surprised me in a good way. I've always loved Powell, but if you told me two years ago he'd write a Star Wars score, I'd have been hesitant about it. But Solo is really, really solid, even without the John Williams main theme. In fact, I like what Powell does with the JW theme better than the theme as JW wrote it.Wowww so many solo Powell!His part is not in the OST release...No Paul Mounsey credits?
Credits added !
<br>
<br>I didn't credit here JW for every arrangements of his theme & old SW themes that can be heard throughout the score.MoS, TASM2Badelt's "Solomon"?<br><br>This must be the "famous" Dark Knight reference that the "critics" are talking about.I could have sworn I had heard the Solomon theme and some of the same<br>Chords that Kraemer had used...<br>My mistake lol<br><br>And Balfe does seem like a genuinely nice person. Hell he even takes the time to put out unreleased music, not something most composers do. <br>That is exactly why I hate when people take personal jabs at composers (usually at Junkie XL for some reason). Itís fine to not like the music, everyone has different tastes, but donít criticize a composer for writing what he was asked to write.I agree! He actually invited me to come to a recording session in London for this film, man it killed me that I couldnít afford to go. But I was so thankful he even thought to ask! Top notch guy.

The Stark theme always left a big impression on me, but the way it plays when Jon Snow dies gives me the chills

OMG the music was great in episode 4! The ending piece has to be on the OST!

Wow. Ramin has done it again. I think that the new themes work brilliantly and that the development of old themes blends perfectly. Son of the harpy is such a great track. Too bad we don't have the version that plays in episode 9. It's a bit different.

the season 3 score is better

Hello Hybrid, do you have a cue from Ramin's The Srain: Season 1 Score?

Phil reply Replies: 2 || 2015-06-16 18:28:04
soo many Cello-Solo parts :) very nice


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-16 20:58:41
That's not such a surprise considering Djawadi plays the cello and thus eliminates the expense and effort of hiring a soloist. :p


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-16 21:07:12
The POTC 1 cello !

Ramin influence everywhere !! :P ;)

Macejko reply Replies: 13 || 2015-06-14 13:51:32
Awesome as always. "High Sparrow", "Son Of The Harpy", "Dance of Dragons" and "Hardhome" are simply astounding. Too bad there's some music missing, like the cue from Brienne's chase sequence, the Stone Men theme and more from Dorne - I expected more than just a little bit of guitar in "Jaws Of The Viper".
P.S.: I really hope that once the series is over we'll get some giant expanded edition of music from all the seasons.
P.P.S.: I've never been more ready for you, Warcraft!


Ds2015-06-14 14:37:00
I'll never understand why you're so crazy about this music, Macejko. Probably you like so much Djawadi that everything he puts out HAS to be great. The whole thing about the Game of Thrones music is that it is ambient music that doesn't take a big place, that remains in the background, providing dark and tense atmosphere, but that's it. I find these albums to be a rather boring listening experience, except for a few great cues of course, and a magnificent main theme. If only the actual score for this series sounded more like its main theme...


Macejko2015-06-14 15:08:35
Not all music needs to be a spectacular one like the main theme. In fact, it mustn't be, for obvious reasons. What can I say, I enjoy both types, be it the spectacle in "Dance of Dragons" or the eerie, mysterious quality of "House Of Black And White".
Of course, everything Ramin comes up with DOESN'T have to be great and there is stuff I consider only serviceable. But he doesn't compose to please ME personally, so who am I to complain if there are few tracks that don't blow me away? I find his albums to be amazing as an OVERALL work of art, with MAJORITY of the cues being great. I never said that I worship every single cue he's ever done. That would be impossible, and not just for me, but for everybody who has a favourite composer of their own, be it Hans, Goldsmith, Mansell or literally whoever else.


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-14 15:10:18
Wow Belgian / Slovakian showdown ! Let me grab my popcorn !!


Macejko2015-06-14 15:17:51
Oh, come on :D
Ds and I actually see eye to eye on most of the topics :)


Ds2015-06-14 20:17:56
Yeah we agree on almost all topics, except when it comes to Ramin. I dont hate his music but I just dont understand why Macejko worships him :-D

I get your point and I agree. I also like ambient scores, but Game of Thrones' music is too simplistic, too sober for my own taste. Scores like Broken City or Pain and Gain I find really pleasant on album, because they are much more layered. GoT, not so much...


Adam2015-06-14 23:28:47
There's a lot more than just ambience in Game of Thrones, Ds! There are actual themes! Like Daenerys' theme (Mhysa) and Jaqen H'ghar's theme (Valar Morghulis)! They're great stuff. So good!


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-15 11:01:17
The thing about Djawadi's themes for Game of Thrones is that (with some exceptions) they're so basic, so unmelodic, that hearing references to them in ambient/underscore cues doesn't do a whole lot to raise the interest level of that cue. Yeah, it's nice that there's recurring motifs and such, but when the motifs themselves are so dull that doesn't do much for me. People say the same about Howard Shore's Hobbit scores but Shore's themes are much more interesting and cleverly manipulated than Djawadi's.


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-15 12:56:05
Unmelodic ? How so ?


Macejko2015-06-15 15:15:27
Not even Shore developed his themes like Ramin did. Rearranged? Sure. Developed? Listen to "King's Arrival" from Season 1, then to "The Throne Is Mine" from Season 2 and finally to "First Of His Name" from Season 4, just to name a few. THAT'S development. A true emotional shift, a brand new context.


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-15 15:44:43
Unmelodic in the sense that a lot of the motifs (eg Stannis' or the White Walkers) are just very short ascending or descending patterns or textures, rather than full melodies with distinct phrases. Yes, it's a recurring theme, which is nice, but the theme itself is so short that it doesn't carry any emotional weight. It doesn't make the music more interesting beyond "oh, there's that theme".

And are you seriously going to suggest, Macejko, that Shore's thematic development in LotR/The Hobbit is in any way inferior to Djawadi's in Game of Thrones? Seriously? Don't make me laugh. What you cited with "The King's Arrival" is smart, admittedly, but there are literally hundreds of similar developments running all through the LotR scores. Look at what he does with the Fellowship theme. It starts out heroic but still subdued when it's just the Hobbits and Aragorn, then gets huge and fanfare-ish once the entire company is assembled in Rivendell, falls apart towards the end of FotR after Gandalf dies and then picks up steam again in TTT and RotK. You never hear that theme played the same way twice. In comparison, all Djawadi ever does with his main theme is play that same damn ostinato over and over again...different speeds, maybe, but always the same feeling (the only exception, and it's a great one, being "Three Blasts" from season 2). The way Shore's different themes have shared melodic fragments that connect the concepts to one another (e.g. the half-step opening of the Ring theme, Sauron's theme and the Ring's seduction theme) is another compositional nuance that's entirely lost on Djawadi.


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-15 16:16:03
In The Hobbit ? Let me think... YES... lol


Macejko2015-06-15 16:38:48
IMHO, all those nuances mean pretty much nothing when they are so buried in the soundscape that you have to be extra attentive to even notice them, or listen to the soundtrack a thousand times to discover them. From my point of view, the basic layout is this: in LoTR, the melody encapsulates the change, however in GoT, it's the change that encapsulates the melody. What this means is that while in LoTR you seek for a emotional differences in theme-variations that sound really similar to one another, in GoT you search for a theme in cues that couldn't be more emotionaly distinct from one another. I consider this to be a huge difference, and also one of those that separates the "old school" (Shore, Williams...) from "new school" (Hans, Ramin...), if you will. I think you rely a little too much on musical theory and missing a bigger picture. The way the things are done nowadays is not bad simply because it differs from the past methods, and you shouldn't say that something "is entirely lost" on Ramin. He and many others from RCP studied music and they are certainly well aware of the "old school" methods the critics are blaming them for not using. They might have simply CHOSEN to not use them.


Ds2015-06-15 19:17:39
Macejko I agree with your last post, about those old and new views on film music. However, while I fully appreciate Hans' method (actually I'm in love with it), I often find Djawadi to be too simplistic. I'm not looking for musical complexity (for instance I didn't enjoy the Hobbit scores at all, and I'm a huge fan of the heavy, brutal sections of Man of Steel), but I want the music to float in my ear, to move me somehow, I want a "full" sound with many layers, some crazy rythms. In my opinion Hans has got an amazing sense of entertaining, crowd-pleasing music (and I mean that as a compliment). Djawadi's music often lacks depth, it's like he's trying so hard to become Hans but stops at the "demo" stage. And the result is often kind of cheap-sounding and hollow.

It's only half of the season and we've already been introduced to three new themes. I can only imagine what awaits us down the road, and I can't wait for the score to come out :)


Zimson2015-05-12 12:03:21
I can't wait for his Warcraft score to come out. They keep delaying the release, but I'm pretty sure they're going to show the trailer at gamescom and hopefully include some of his music.


Anonymous2015-05-12 14:57:26
Well, I can't wait for POI season 3 & 4 soundtrack. What's going on with these?


Mark2015-05-12 15:02:54
Wow, great news. I think 'July 17' will be for the CD release. So the digital version will come out earlier on June, like the year past.

Son of the Harpy, what a excellent track! that moment when it's start plays in the show freaks me out. Pretty creepy and scary moment of entire season :)
