Off the top of my head:<br><br>It Wasn't Meant To Be<br>Atlantean Soldiers<br>Permission To Come Aboard<br>Swimming Lessons<br>Kingdom of Atlantis<br>The Legend of Atlan<br>The Ring of Fire<br>What Does That Even Mean?<br>Map In A Bottle<br>The Black Manta<br>Trench Engaged<br>Reunited<br>What Could Be Greater Than A King?<br>He Commands The Sea<br>Suited And Booted<br><br>Not sure about Arthur, Between Land And Sea, and He Commands The Sea. I think Arthur may be a suite that includes his main theme, the Atlantis chase, and some action themes. I'd have to listen to the other two tracks again to be sure, but I think He Commands The Sea is near the end.anyone care to take a stab at the chronological trask listing?Yes, both played in the film, and it's sort of a suite: It's split into two in the film, first part sounds close to the opening, the heavy synth part plays in really well when it's used, you'll hear it the moment it starts, no spoilers from me, but it's an awesome sequence.Does the cue "Arthur" play during the film or is it a theme suite?It's confirmed a CD release, but not confirm if is a CD-R
Is the soundtrack released on CD, or it's only digital ?by that logic he would’ve done blade runner 2049. He’s retiredMakes you wonder why they didn't get Vangelis himself.Naw man this is the right page lolWrong page?
Rupert Gregsons amazing blending of orchestral and electronic sounds in Aquaman is epic.Arthur is the best?why Slenderman theme not getting the praise it deserves?Conrad Pope is only conductor in this, not orchestrator.Creatively speaking I can see why they choose that particular synth style, and my guess has nothing to do with that Thor Rganarok score. <br><br>It has MUCH to do with one composer: VANGELIS. You cannot see Aquaman landscapes and not to think of Vangelis (Blade Runner to be precise) and by all means, if you know well Mr. Papathanassiou's body of work, in his style.. he even has an album called OCEANIC. <br><br>I mean, RGW even uses the same exact 5 notes in which Vangelis tended to end up some of his themes, as also closing notes for one of his themes. It has nothing to do with Ragnarok.. lets not be so short sighted please.^ And I think a big part of that is the sound mixing. I understand each composer has their own unique voice, but in Holkenborg’s case he tends to mix everything so harshly, particularly the brass. It definitely muffles the music to a degree. <br><br>Similar issue I have with Giacchino, who I think writes amazing music which gets undercut by the really dry mixing.
Arthur alone is worth the price of the whole album. Amazing piece.To me it sounds like the composer's usual fare, only this time it has a touch of Conrad Pope every now and then in the orchestrations. Won't be surprised if CP's involvement went beyond just conducting.I think some pices of music was simillar to bane theme in dark knight rises. Isnt it ?Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through Paris

Hans is scoring the new Sponge Bob movie apparently!


Mike2018-10-23 22:46:22
Hans has a lot of big-brand projects down the line, huh? Lion King, Wonder Woman, X-Men, Sponge Bob, Top Gun... I've been missing new music from him while he's been on tour, so I can't complain.


Mephariel2018-10-23 23:56:20
His new life plan is to build a pyramid that progressively grows:

Widows
The Lion King, Dark Phoenix
Wonder Woman, Sponge Bob, Top Gun



mpolonest1232018-10-24 01:49:40
After having a bit of hiatus on Zimmer in the past year it’s great to see this huge variety of projects coming from him in the next few years. Not gonna lie, I never imagined I would ever see his name attached to Spongebob lol


Ds2018-10-24 19:40:55
The problem is that a Sponge Bob movie is not exactly an opportunity for a great score that people will remember. If Zimmer wants to tackle big brands he should do the Avatar sequels. A huge, huge undertaking but he could deliver. He'd be absolutely perfect for this.


mpolonest1232018-10-24 20:34:33
@Ds
But not every score from Hans has to be some big, iconic thing like Interstellar or Inception. Take “The Simpsons Movie” for example; it’s not an epic or even memorable score, but it is a lot of fun. And seeing all of the huge blockbusters that Hans is attached to, I personally like seeing him do projects that are smaller and can allow him a bit more freedom.


Ds2018-10-24 20:49:55
5 or 10 years ago I'd have agreed with you, but we are in 2018, and the last time he did something iconic was in 2014... Of course he did pretty cool stuff afterwards (mainly Chappie), but it pales in comparison to the legendary stuff he wrote between 2000 and 2010.

So yeah, small projects are nice, but I'm looking forward to his next masterpiece which will blow everyone's mind. And I honestly don't think it'll come from Sponge Bob, or from any of the upcoming blockbusters HZ is currently attached to. I hope I'm wrong, though :-)


mpolonest1232018-10-24 21:03:43
@Ds
I definitely get what you are saying, and I do agree to an extent. It seems like the only thing from Z to stay in the public consciousness in the past few years is the Wonder Woman theme.

From everything coming up though I think both Dark Phoenix and Lion King are going to be huge scores, with WW1984 and Spongebob being the “fun” ones. As long as we get quality music I don’t care what Zimmer scores.


Ds2018-10-24 21:17:57
Ironically I think the most promising of those projects is Top Gun. A Zimmer score on a Kosinski film can only give something mindblowing. But yeah, another year and a half to wait... :-p


mpolonest1232018-10-24 21:23:59
Joseph Kosinski is directing?

Wow, this is going to be an incredible score, if Tron Legacy and Oblivion are anything to go by. Hopefully it’s not too dependent on ostinatos though.

And supposedly Kosinski is also attached to “The Twilight Zone”, hopefully we can get a Zimmer score for that as well...

The Sierra Leone track Andrew K posted (link below)...I almost wonder if that's how 2010s Zimmer would redo The Lion King. More bass, more minimalist, more Interstellar...but still with an African flare.

Andrew loaded some cues to the movie "The Last Face" up on his soundcloud page, go & check it :)

Nice stuff! I still can't believe this score hasn't gotten a release.


Hal2017-11-19 13:03:31
Hybrid, did you ever ask Hans why this score wasn't released?


Hybrid Soldier2017-11-19 13:25:47
I don't have to ask, that movie was a failure that barely got distributed... No one had any interest in releasing this score...


Hal2017-11-19 13:43:44
Okay, thanks for clearing that up. The Tracks released were kind of interesting, a kind of mix of sounds


Hybrid Soldier2017-11-19 13:49:07
Yeah, I happen to have seen the film and the score is not really "coherent", it's more like many different cues put together...


Mike (OTM)2017-11-19 23:04:16
Huh. Well, the music Andrew posted is nice.

MHarru reply Replies: 0 || 2017-11-04 01:36:42
Have to agree that Megamind was MUCH better.the Conrad cue though is amazing.rest is not at all Zimmer.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 3 || 2017-11-03 17:50:36
Yes, it’s definitely no Megamind, but I will say that after revisiting it; definitely not as disappointing to me as when I first heard. The issues I have are still the same (frenetic action, ADD-type scoring, Pope’s cue being the strongest, etc.) but at the same time it’s a very charming score when it slows the pace and lets the emotional side come forward. I will even give credit to the main theme(s), they actually get more development than Megamind’s main tune. It’s a shame this score kinda got written off this year, it’s enjoyable enough.

And as for the “Love” cue, that really is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve heard in recent memory. It’s a great throwback to classical music with that John Williams string sound. I really wish Zimmer had written it, but understandably that’s not his style.


Hybrid Soldier2017-11-03 18:29:00
Hans wanted Conrad to just be Conrad. He spent like 2 months on that only cue !


mpolonest123 2017-11-03 21:27:14
Really?!? Well it shows! I’m confused though, did Hans bring Conrad on board or was that the production’s decision?


Hybrid Soldier2017-11-03 23:04:04

Edmund Meinerts2017-04-07 20:41:18
I'd bet my left nut that "Love" is Pope.


Hybrid Soldier2017-04-08 04:05:52
Pope did Love indeed.


Mike782017-04-08 11:03:17
Love is amazing . He rest is not as good as megamind . Don't think zimmer gave 100% to this


c2017-04-08 13:57:25
Conrad Pope explains the cue on his facebook. They needed something more dynamic and classical-sounding.

The editor James Ryan also commented:

"Every screening for well over 2 years the last thing we would do was work on that scene and struggle to re-edit the temp. I've never worked on a scene in any movie that had so much riding on the music. The sigh of relief and joy when you delivered your masterpiece was something I will never forget. And watching you conduct it gave me the chills (and a few tears). Bravo!"

By far the strongest piece on the album. The rest is pretty forgettable.


Andrew272017-04-08 14:43:35
That's amazing to hear from the editor . Wish the rest of the score was as good as Popes piece.

Think Lego Batman is still best animation score this year . Was really looking forward to Boss Baby but seems generic .


Ds2017-04-08 15:08:27
You guys are right that "Love" is a great cue. But the rest of the score is just as good, with plenty of ideas and a very cool and memorable theme.

The issue is that this kind of scores requires some patience from the listeners, because it's too crazy, too packed, with so many twists and style variations it's difficult to fully grasp the whole thing after just a few listens.

It's just like any John Powell score for animation: absolutely great music that takes some time to fully digest. So please, give it a few more spins and some time to grow on you before you judge it!


Mike (OTM)2017-04-08 20:00:25
"Love" is an awesome cue and all. I really love it. But I don't understand: could no one at RCP have delivered something like this? Pope was obviously a good pick, but are Zimmer and co. truly incapable of arranging this type of thing?


mpolonest1232017-04-08 20:21:06
@Mike(OTM) Not necessarily, I feel like Richard Harvey could easily have delivered something in this vein. That being said, I'm sure the production team probably had their heart set on whatever temps they used for that scene (more likely than not something that Pope either composed or orchestrated) and decided to go directly to the man himself.

It is a bit strange that they would only bring him in to do one scene, as opposed to working alongside Hans and Steve throughout. But it's not unheard of, I guess.


Miguel2017-04-08 22:44:06
The only person at RCP that could do what Pope did was , is Balfe . Why didn't he get involved especially after the Megamind connection???

Mike (OTM) reply Replies: 0 || 2017-04-02 00:40:11
Hybrid, since you generally have an idea about this stuff, do you have a rough estimate of how composing duties/credits were divided here? Co-score all throughout? Mostly Steve? Mostly Hans? ;)

Not bad! The "Love" cue has great orchestral moments. At least *** score after the first listen.


credit2017-03-26 10:46:03
So "Love" was obviously done by Conrad Pope. Never heard anyone from RCP write anything remotely close to that style.

But what about the rest of the score? I can hear a lot of Hans in the theme and the action material (a lot of his action riffs and stylings from megamind) but not sure which bits Mazzaro did.


iMe2017-03-26 14:15:20
@credit

Agreed with your comment on Conrad Pope's involvement.

Goes to show what Hans Zimmer's tunes can become if orchestrated and arranged by someone of Pope's caliber. I hope to see the duo collaborate more often.


Miguel2017-03-27 05:16:04
Conrad should have been the co composer with Hans I think !. I bet he contributed more than just that amazing cue .


Mike (OTM)2017-03-27 15:52:51
So I agree it's likely that Conrad Pope was involved with the "Love" cue, but watch what's gonna happen...

We're gonna find out that cue is 100% Zimmer, and we're all gonna have our minds blown. Cause honestly, that type of thing happens a lot. :P


Jonathan Rochat2017-03-27 16:24:51
Yes ok I then had a look at Conrad Pope. That guys has orchestrated "Jurassic Park" (and many many others) so yes it seems that the "love" cue could have been completely in his hand. And note this is the first Time Conrad Pope is credited as Additional composer here, maybe this is just because of that cue... Now we need to wait for Hybrid , maybe one day we will know the answer.

Who is Conrad Pope ? Is he RCP ?


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-27 09:51:25
He's done a few scores (Pavilion of Women is outstanding), but he's better known as a veteran orchestrator for many years for composers like John Williams, Alan Silvestri and Alexandre Desplat. In other words, he knows what he's doing. Quite unexpected for him to show up on an RCP score!

Loved that score and prefer it to lego batman. The main theme is cool, and there's an "out-of-nowhere" throwback to the 90s in the cue "barfmitzvah", what can I ask more??

Why is it lame? Have you heard it yet?

Give it a chance, Steve Mazzaro has shown some promise in the past and has never really had a chance to show his talents in a more solo effort. Between this and Pirates, it'll be cool to hear his more orchestral side.

Hell, I still remember when Lorne Balfe was first breaking away from his co-composer status and people were hating on him...
