u ask "is it from the sessions?" and you know thats rips whith sfx? :D hahah. made my dayI think we were all clear that both Snyder and Tom intended to use material from Hans. I don’t think he’s writing new music, but I do think Tom will use a lot of Hans.Is it true that Hans Zimmer is working on the Snyder Cut? That would be spectacular!Lol it’s probably low quality rips from the filmwhaaat? the complete score?? where??
where did you find it? what is it called on youtube?i found a complete album on YouTube, but the audio quality is not good as I thought. Is it from the recording session? Where can I find a high quality audio of this album to listen?just going to leave this here: el matador del mar, a great character, killed so easily because sparrow needed to be the great hero.<br><br>i disapprove, long life salazar!!What is the name of the song playing when Maggie leaves it’s beautiful and haunting.  The music from this movie is sheer genius a mix of heavy metal, jazz, and rock and roll!  Awesome...!Yes! Finally someone else who has heard it to! I am a HUGE fan of both trilogy's, do you like POTC?
R.I.P. to Ennio Morricone, dead at 91. <br><br>For those who aren’t as familiar with his material, check out Once Upon a Time in the West, easily one of the greatest scores of the past century. You can definitely hear where Zimmer took inspiration from, for Pirates/Lone Ranger/Sherlock/Rango/etc. <br><br>“Parlay” is such a love letter to the main tune from OUATITW...it‘s unreleased...@hybrid soldier<br>Where can i hear the songs you have listed out? I can't find it on YouTubeLooks like Zimmer's abandoned Z+. It only worked on one iOS system, then because it wasn't recompiled for the next system wouldn't decode the music you paid for. Locking your purchases into an app was a VERY BAD idea. Now there's nothing out there that's as good at providing a great surround sound experience for headphones.So Lorne's mp3 uploads. Would anyone class that as an 'official' release of the music from the movie?
Currently watching this movie the first time ^^ ... and then... suddenly a music motive spontaneously pops up. Sound exactly like a little part from Armageddon "Secondary Protocol" -  really cool :) love the music in this movie. Very intense.I don't mean to pile on but do you really think that Hans touring is the only obstacle to a CD release of a completely forgotten 12-year-old film and score by a different composer?And why would Hans' tours be responsible for the fact that many albums these days don't get a physical release? While at the same time those tours even got an LP release... lolYou are aware that there's a pandemic going on right now, right?I'm pretty sure that neither did he.

Is Clint Mansell not credited for this score as well?


Knight2019-07-06 17:50:35
From what I can tell, Lorne replaced his work in the movie, which would explain why he said nothing about the film or score when the whole petition was happening.


Knight2019-07-06 17:55:52
Lorne did use some of his material though, the 2 note thing on strings in Confined is Mansell material.


Peter2019-07-07 02:33:52
Balfe released most of the score under his name. There seems to be only a couple of cues according to ASCAP that are not Balfe .


JA2019-11-14 01:44:28
I want to say that test screening version of Ghost in the Shell deleted one geisha character who was under orders of Cutter to follow the Major and in the original third act, she fought Aramaki when he stormed into Cutter's Holo room after killing his guards. Aramaki survives and the scene continues as shown. Because of the poor reception of what I call "The Philosophical Cut", the geisha character was removed and there were quick reshoots of all of the conversations between Cutter and Aramaki minus the geisha character involvement.

The new soundtrack for the movie Looking Up composed by Steffen Thum is now up on itunes. The Main Theme is by Lorne. The music sounds very beautiful.

As a Zimmer fan, I'm somewhat disappointed that he hasn't done much this year. However, Balfe's latest works has made up for the lack of Zimmer, especially MI6. Now after just recently listening to Ghost in the Shell (which I realize is just amazing!), I've started to think that Balfe is an underrated composer. He's amazing at what he does and He's starting to create more unique scores. Hopefully MI6 will give him more recognition as a score composer.

I'm hearing a lot from the "Elysium" score from Ryan Amon in Ghost in the Shell...


Darth2018-07-25 11:47:00
yeah i would put 'Gravity', 'Oblivion' and even 'Ender's Game' in the pot of similarities


Sun2018-07-26 09:26:00
Do you have any more scores in mind, that sounds familiar like these ones? Love the style of these scores and would love to hear more of them :)


Edmund Meinerts2018-07-26 14:13:46
The ultimate one for me is Tron Legacy by Daft Punk, which is still in my top 5 of this decade and pretty much the perfect orchestra/electronic hybrid score IMO. It's a modern classic. I think a lot of the scores mentioned, especially Oblivion, directly trace their lineage to Tron Legacy.

There's a way to do it but I won't tell you for fear that I get HULK SMASHED by Hybrid. Besides, the file is in 112 kbps, it's barely worth the trouble (and I'm not even much of an audiophile).

Now here's a Lorne Balfe score that I can get behind. Interesting aesthetic, fun electronics, grand orchestra cues, and interesting combinations of the two. Not sure if I'd say Oscar worthy, but definitely more unique to me than his other work.

I got a 15 second sample of Major Motoko.. epic electronic track that didn't get used in the final cut of the movie. Hopefully Lorne Balfe will release it on a GITS Friday in a week or two!

firasd2017-10-01 19:42:35
Cool... this stuff about drones is very interesting because there are no significant drones that I can remember in the movie. This is yet another reason we need a director's cut or deleted scenes...

Hybrid, is it okay if I share the cue sheet on our blog post about potential deleted scenes?

fs2017-09-08 17:55:04
After all that praise i was dissappointed about the music when i just recently watched the movie. Never really noticed the music, no theme... nothing. If someone compares that to Tron Legacy then the Tron score was way better than this (they seem to be similiar so i think its ok to use Tron for comparison). Is it praised because its unreleased ?


mpolonest123 2017-09-08 20:16:25
@fs I honestly feel the same. Outside of the shelling sequence and finale cues I honestly can't remember anything themewise. The electronic music is well done (especially in context) but just like the film it was pretty forgettable to me.


Marcus2017-09-08 21:42:30
Balfe's score was fantastic . Just because it didn't have big melodies all over it doesn't matter . The film was ok but Balfe's score was unique.


James2017-09-08 22:17:57
Effective in the context and out &#242; f it, but not unique.


firasd2017-09-09 00:07:34
There are definitely themes--or at least one theme, played throughout the score with different tempos and instruments.


fs2017-09-09 18:12:03
It is not bad but just nothing special or fantastic. After reading many comments here (Balfes best work etc) i really cared for the music while watching it. But i dont see/hear any "idea" behind that score. It is solid of course and supports the movie. It is the same like Balfes Terminator score, it works but nothing to rememeber outside from the movie.


Adam2017-09-10 17:47:04

David2017-08-20 18:23:05
Woopsie :/

See I knew you'd know! :P


firasd2017-08-22 02:33:50
I suspect that the music from the Clint Mansell sessions that ended up getting used in the soundtrack is too intertwined with the final score to separate the cues between the two composers' teams. Check out "The Leap" from Kevin Kiner (it's on his website and also on Youtube), a version of that is in the final score.

In other words, I don't think there are easily separable "Clint Mansell cues" and "Lorne Balfe cues". There is just one final score.


firasd2017-08-22 02:45:43
Also (to answer the question at the start of this thread) the cover art uses a portion of an unofficial poster by Ruiz Burgos
