Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)<br><br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.<br><br>https://youtu.be/etkri6OKLpEThere is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.<br><br>https://youtu.be/DbENmej_cH0But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :P
Thanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the scoreTom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.
Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.Aplusle, that's really well put actually.
Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensationBalfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.

Hey Hybrid, Is This Complete?


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-15 22:23:09
Why... why don't you check yourself with the film ? I assure you it's not that hard ! Might take some time but if you wanna find out... lol


Felix2017-08-15 22:51:59
Haha.... a yes or no was very hard for you?!... But thanks for the great information :)... lol


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-15 22:53:39
I honestly haven't checked and don't plan on doing it anytime soon ! lol


badbu2017-08-16 08:03:24
haha hybrid :D made my day :) lol

So, Hybrid, will you be able to tell us more about this one? How exactly did Margeson and Higham divide up duties? It sounds pretty unified, stylistically, except for the one techno track...


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-22 22:09:32
Yeah they really worked together, doing cues together, arranging eacher, sometimes one more in charge of something etc. As for the "techno track", it's the work of Jason Soudah actually.


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-22 22:53:01
A true collaboration then! Cool. It's a decent score, but at a lot of points it felt like an Elfman score without his personality or any really memorable themes...


ei182016-10-22 23:58:18
Do you know why Elfman didn't score this?


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-23 00:28:58
I assume that there were scheduling conflicts with The Girl on the Train, but that can't be the whole story; surely you'd expect Elfman to prioritize the Tim Burton movie in that case...


ei182016-10-23 02:07:12
my thoughts exactly.


Meta2016-10-23 02:59:58
Probably has something to do with the fact that Burton is now divorced while Elfman is happily married. Different lifestyles now, so they probably aren't on the same page anymore.



Brent2016-10-23 06:08:30
Edmund, I thought there were scheduling conflicts with Alice 2 and Tim wanted him to do that one. Not entirely sure as these movies were pretty far apart, but there production could have ended around the same time.

The 11th.


isildur2016-10-03 15:20:49
I heard from the people who saw the movie that the score is amazing. Did you listen to it, Hybrid?


Anonymous2016-10-03 16:02:44
Why no Elfman?!


Waymann2016-10-06 16:22:19
Score comes out tomorrow on Itunes at least. Just checked Itunes Sri Lanka. (I know this is not the place here but tomorrow you can pre-order Fantastic Beasts on Itunes and get the main titles already, also samples available, FYI)


Waymann2016-10-07 13:22:17
There's a track missing. Enoch's Dolls is the same track as Squirrel Rescue...


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-07 19:34:00
Yeah there was a fuck up, it was brought up to the Label & iTunes and is going to be worked out.

Joseph Solano reply Replies: 0 || 2016-10-04 03:21:10
Didn't see the movie because I didn't want to. One of the reasons was because Danny Elfman didn't do the score. However, I am looking foward to this score. But can anybody tell me why Danny Elfman didn't return? Are him and Timmy fighting again?

Waymann reply Replies: 0 || 2016-10-03 08:47:26
When does it come out ? Movie is already released...
