He said in a recent interview that the score exists “full tracks”. Who knows how much of it was ready considering he probably left the project before the cut was finalized - so probably nothing was recorded. But knowing how Tom likes to do things and judging by his studio time videos, he can do amazing things with samples. And if it contains lots of sound design then it wouldn’t be far from the final product.I wish !<br><br>I have zero info, just following what's happening on social networks like everybody else...<br><br>If you asked me last week about it, I'd have told you "Sure, it will happen... in 20 years maybe, but it will happen..."<br><br>Now it seems it might be sooner than that... :)@Hybrid, do you think the SnyderCut will release soon?<br>I won't go further cause it's not exactly the place, but I won't say you're wrong either... :PHybrid, any insight into why Tyler was fired from Age of Ultron? I’ve always wondered but have never seen an actual reason. I’ve heard he violated his contract to work on Furious 7 or something?<br><br>Just was curious because he still takes full credit for that score, and the more I see of him the more annoyed I get with his arrogant attitude. The dude thinks he’s the greatest thing to ever happen to film scores.
Me too. The deluxe edition was quite underwhelming. Would love to get the entire Sicily sequence.Really gutted that the FYC is out but it's missing the one moment from the score I really wanted, the statement of the Alpha theme from HTTYD2. Wonder why Powell and his crew seem to be going out of their way to prevent that from being heard...something about pre-existing material, maybe? But why just that theme and not the dozens of others? Weird.If you ask me, that "personal tragedy" for Snyder, though real, was just an excuse for them to fire him. It was convenient for Warner. They saw his film and they probably got scared it was impossible to sell, too long, too much BvS, too much this, too much that... This irony is now they made a billion with the darkest DC movie ever... Nice call WB... The minute Whedon & Elfman were "in", you understood this film was not Zack Snyder's anymore. This film is so terrible, I rewatched it lately, you can feel pretty much 80% of it is Whedon reshoots (just look for actors that look nothing like themselves when they shot the initial film, "New Haircut" Amy Adams, "Bottox" Batfleck, "Mustache" Cavill... And you can see from miles away how they all act like they don't care, that they hated every minute of reshooting it. I'm really sad Geoff Zanelli had to participate into this travesty, but I hope he got a huge paycheck for the pain ! lol Especially since Geoff was at the very beginning of the DCEU since he started working on ideas with Hans on Man Of Steel, before he left early to handle The Lone Ranger...<br><br>#ReleaseTheSnyderCut<br><br>Oh and btw Brian Tyler was fired from Avengers 2. And not because of the music he was writing. Whedon brought Elfman at the last minute, first he was "additional music", then "co-composer", if he had, say, one more month, he would have replaced the entirety of Tyler's score... He just didn't get enough time to do that...I definitely agree with your last sentence. I really like seeing the RCP composers going back to orchestral splendor and melody. Shame Jablonsky's been MIA because of his family. I would have loved to see him come back with the orchestral, melodic voice that Balfe and Tom have had lately.cool!
Whedon has his particular tastes which are guaranteed to be more sensible than 'Anonymous' below. This was a case where Snyder was facing an uphill struggle and a personal tragedy. He left the project. Josh came on board and he does not think highly of the RCP school, as anyone with a sensible ear will do. So he hired Elfman who did Age of Ultron for him after Tyler copy-pasted himself too much. It's ironic that fanboys here lambast Elfman for not being Zimmer enough in scope while Tyler does whatever he does, sounding EXACTLY the same on all projects. <br><br>But it's also heartening to see that all of the good RCP composers like Jackman, Junk, Balfe are now going for scores that sound a lot like 1990s or 2000s - Silvestri (Jumanji), Jones (Alita), or Shore (Dark Materials), respectively.Did Holkenborg finish his score and have time to record it? Is there an actual score? It seems to me he got jettisoned early in the process when Whedon came on board. It would be surprising if he had time to record an actual score with players and an orchestra.I can't decide whether or not some of the things I want to hear from him should be in his new show or a new World of Hans Zimmer show.@Ds Omar is saying that this was the direction Tom went with / what the score sounded like not that he was fired because he didn’t deliver the sound he’s known for :) <br>Of course he was replaced after Snyder left the project. <br><br>And yeah citation is needed.Desperately hoping we'll hear something from Dune. He's said himself how excited he is to finally work on music for a Dune movie and turned down Nolan for it, and it will be out a few months before these shows begin.
The FYC came out for this. Unfortunately, it's missing two entire tracks from the film. An extended "Busy, Busy Berk", and the film version of "Furies Captured" (which at least had a YouTube upload of the alternate version). <br><br>Guess we'll have to hope for a complete/recording sessions leak for everything else.Will he come to Sthlm / Gothenburg sweden???https://www.  axs.com/why-we-need-a-chicago-med-soundtrack-album-in-our-li ves-112620<br><br>Why they never release this?!....Omar: Well tried, but Junkie XL was replaced after Snyder was fired and Whedon came in.<br>And just in case Snyder actually wanted another sound, he would just have told Junkie at the beginning instead of firing him after he departed himself :-pCitation needed

vced2019-09-29 10:54:21
Main theme is megamind/madagascar re-formulated - its catchy tho.

CP already admitted to doing Love.

None of the score sounds like HZ. complex technical writing not his capability: one big theme and suggestion ideas to arrangers (in this case just one) is his style. We already know this from 50 other scores.

no citation needed.

"complex technical writing not his capability"

Yeah sure... lol

You shouldn't mistake "can" & "want" !

Rafael Rios2019-09-29 20:04:43
When he does the music for animation films, he often shows his more orchestral and complex side. "Chariot Race" and "Hungry for Lunch" are examples.

I generally feel that it is more difficult to say who did what with this score than with, say, Megamind, since we've never heard any Mazzaro music like this before and don't know how it would sound.

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...

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

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???

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? ;)

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.

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!

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...
