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.

Does anyone know where you could find the variations on Duck Shoot, specifically the one during the King's death in Episode 2?


Pablo2018-11-24 08:54:47
Looking for that one too, season 2 "future king" is very similar

Ahmad reply Replies: 2 || 2016-11-30 05:55:40
Does anyone else hear a hint of Arcade/Terraforming from Man Of Steel in Duck Shoot? The woodwind/flute starting 2:25 specifically. Really interesting.

Can't divulge the source. But it's happening.


George2018-01-22 20:31:14
Lol okay I trust you, its awesome how RGW has broken from the comedic scores and is getting some really good opportunities to create some pretty incredible music


Joshua2018-01-22 21:57:00
I completely agree!


olive2018-01-23 02:09:08
I hope he does a better job than in WW. I like the main theme, but I'm not much of a fan of the RGW score. The most striking moments of it are those in which it mentions King Arthur or The Last Samurai.


Miralsice2018-01-27 11:51:50
It would be great. But I can't believe it without any proofs or sources.

Is there anybody who knows the chronological order of the 2 seasons scores? I've seen the show, but I can't figure it out.

Ian reply Replies: 3 || 2018-01-19 05:08:37
Jeez, I knew Lorne worked on this, and my assumption was that his contribution was fairly substantive, but I didn't realize he worked on every single cue (at least those on the OST). I'm not sure how I feel about that "Music by Rupert Gregson-Williams" credit now (I know it has everything to do with contracts, but I'm thinking about the principle / artistic integrity side).


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-19 10:21:06
I mean, Tony Clarke and Evan Jolly are on practically every single cue as well. My gut feeling is that these aren't fully accurate credits yet.


james (now james callahan)2018-01-20 02:01:35
This is one of those scores in which all composers receive credit for all cues even though they have not composed each note of music. This happens all the time in rcp (Kung Fu Panda, Batman v Superman, Megamind, BossBaby, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight).


james (now james callahan)2018-01-20 02:09:23
PS: the assumption that everything is Balfe is subjective. In the same way that you drew the conclusion that he is the composer of everything and the credit of RGW is doubtful, I could also say that Balfe did nothing and RGW did everything. Or that no one has done anything and almost everything
in the score is the result of the work of these additional composers.
The credits do not elucidate anything in this case.

Kalman reply Replies: 1 || 2016-12-01 18:17:36
Does anyone know why this score is not available on CD at most sites? Even at amazon they say it ships in 2-3 weeks. At most of international amazon sites it is out of stock. At e-bay I could only find one copy. Other online stores either don't list it or it is out of stock too. I find it a bit strange considering it was released about two weeks ago by Sony which is not a small label.

Same question!

thearmusicgroup reply Replies: 3 || 2016-10-10 23:35:26
I am way more looking forward to Hans' smaller works and releases (like The Crown and Planet Earth) than his upcoming big ones like Inferno. I feel like there are two sides of him now, and the shows and films that are smaller do not pressure him to emulate that stupid generic Hollywood action sound. Stuff like this still reminds me of his older work.


fixed2016-10-11 00:01:15
You're right. Also, Hans's old co-work like here (Balfe & Rupert G-W) still better than CHAPPiE's


AndrewM2016-10-13 06:43:12
Didn't know Balfe was also doing this ? Any sample of the score yet ?

Does anyone know the name of the tracks that you hear in episode 2 when King George dies and the scenes following this event ? Can't seem to find it on the score... It's a different variation on The Duck Shoot and Main theme. Sounds even more beautiful than the version on the album.


Vivien2016-11-07 10:27:53
Well, the answer is in your question, it's a variation of "Duck shoot".


Waymann2016-11-07 12:36:32
Too bad... I watched the whole series now and there is I belief more music that is not included in the official release.


Hybrid Soldier2016-11-07 19:15:28
lol series like that have like 4 to 6 hours written for them... OSTs are usually 1 hours...


Felix2016-11-07 20:01:07
@Hybrid

Somebody persons don't know it...lol

Do you know what Lorne did ok this here, at first it stands additional composer & now co-composer?!


Waymann2016-11-08 09:05:06
I do know this, but it's kind of frustrating when you hear good music in the series and they are not included in the soundtrack. Instead some boring uninteresting tracks are included. Of course these soundtrack albums need to be a good listening experience for the big crowd...

Out of respect to my source's job I cant say. But its legit.


Anonymous2016-11-02 01:29:04
At least it's not Wonder Woman. Wonder Women is probably one of those lame knock-off movies that opens at the same time as a major blockbuster. Probably about a group of women who gain superpowers after a toxic accident...

Whoops. Typo, my bad.

Oh God, I hope this is true! He can use Zimmer's theme and with the small excerpts of Hacksaw Ridge, he'll rock!

This track sounds just like time/journey to the line. Did Hans actually work on this or is it just his name?


Mike2016-10-13 17:46:16
Same question...maybe they temped "Safe Now" and that's where the Hans part comes from... :P But he did very possibly do it anew, for all we know.


ei182016-10-13 22:15:07
Yea, my first thought was "Safe Now" when I listened to this.


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-13 22:16:01
Really guys ? To me it was more Tron Legacy... lol


MB2016-10-14 00:46:58
Yeah, for me it's like basic Tron:legacy theme. But with some interesting strings on background AND Thin red line/Time/safe now element.


Miguel2016-10-14 03:12:23
Where do you think Trin copied from ! The maestro obviously


ei182016-10-14 07:03:15
Did Hans work on the score? I remember when he was first announced, but I thought I saw recent promotional material with only Rupert's name on it.

Also it is for sure a mix of Safe Now and Tron. Melody is more Safe Now and the sound of it is more Tron. Not sure if that makes any sense.


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-14 10:30:53
