"Not to mention the huge chunks of silence at the beginning and end (and sometimes middle) of tracks"<br><br>Edmund Meinerts, Sessions without chunks of silence at the beginning and end was released on rutracker site about month agoGreat. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!
Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...If there'd only been the first movie prior, I think I'd get it a bit more. But the 2nd film did have a proper score release, so the only reason at this point is that it just isn't on Nick's mind after all the delays.Whoa, why not? Every obscure random shit gets released these days but a Hans Zimmer score to a fairly big mainstream movie doesn't?
I doubt there'll be a score release.The Spongebob movie is being released next Friday here in Canada, could we see a release of the album soon? Assuming of course that there will be an album at all /:I gotta say that short film was spectacular even with I Phone 11, the score by Lorne Balfe fitted very well with the scenes introduced.I'd say that this anthem was pretty great for Zimmer to score a soccer team that has been alive for 25 years.Cheers guys, much appreciated!<br>In my mind I had some video interview though, as I always like watching those as well. I do wonder if there was an extra section on the home release of the movie where ideally there might be.
Hans Zimmer is one of the biggest film composers working in the industry today.  He won an Academy Award for his work on The Lion King, and has been nominated for six other films including Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, and As Good As It Gets. With The Last Samurai he celebrates his 100th film score, and SoundtrackNet had an opportunity to talk with Hans a few weeks ago during a rare break in his busy schedule working on Something's Gotta Give.<br><br>You've scored many projects during your career, and The Last Samurai is being touted as your 100th film score…<br><br>Well, I'm terrible with math, so I'm not doing the counting. It could be more, it could be less – but apparently it's the 100th.<br><br>So how did you get involved with the project?<br><br>If you're lucky enough to get nominated for an Oscar, you get invited to the Oscar nominee's luncheon where they hand out these little nomination certificates. There are usually 150 people standing there, and people are invited up in alphabetical order, starting with the As. By the time they get to the Cs, everybody's already back at their table chatting and eating, and while the first people called get thunderous applause, you can imagine what it's like when your name starts with Z!<br><br>So Ed Zwick and I were standing there, waiting at one of these luncheons about four years ago, and we started talking to each other. I asked him what he was working on and he told me about this movie called The Last Samurai, which I thought sounded interesting and I asked him to send me a script. After the script arrived, I didn't hear from him for a long time and I thought he'd forgotten about me, not thinking about how difficult it is to set up a samurai movie these days. The other thing I liked about the project was that Tom Cruise was involved, so it was like returning home, since I've scored a bunch of his movies – I knew we were going to have a good time.<br><br>Did it end up that way?<br><br>Ed and his editor Steve Rosenblum are such gentlemen, so together and professional, and they basically did one cut of the film, screened it, and everyone loved their work. So after this, they had plenty of time to come and hang with me, and while I usually love the re-cutting process because it's a diversionary tactic to keep the director and editor out of my life, these guys were great to have around. <br><br>Of course, my sense of paranoia made me think that something was going wrong all the time, waiting for the other shoe to drop, as it were, but it never happened. Ed phoned this morning and I thought, "Oh my god – rewrite!" It's just how my brain works. But I think he and I feel a bit odd now: we've been seeing each other every day for months, and suddenly we're done. I completely understand why people have a problem finishing a movie, because there's something really nice about the process – completion is far more boring.<br><br>For Samurai, you used Japanese percussions and ethnic woodwinds, without getting too 'Japanese'.<br><br>My problem is that I feel Japanese music is really inaccessible to Western ears, and I was really struggling with this film initially, trying to figure out what I was doing. This idea popped into my head for using Western-style themes, but applying a Japanese aesthetic to them, which sounds great of course, until I had to ask myself what I meant! Actually, I think it's just my way of not overloading certain things with too many colors, or being geometrically precise about my cues and not making them too flowery.<br><br>The Tom Cruise character is one of those nasty drunks at the beginning, who obviously has some serious problems he's trying to deal with, or not deal with. He's obnoxious and restless, suffering sleepless nights and is very un-Tom. For me, this character's journey was about his need to earn tranquility and peace, so within the score there's this very romantic, overblown and passionate theme. It's like a juvenile way of dealing with life and death – the pain and liebestod.<br><br>However, to contrast with these very relentless themes, there are a number of stark, formal and sober pieces, because I wanted to take Tom's character on a journey. He comes from America and ends up in this foreign place where he doesn't speak the language or understand the culture. But at the end of the movie, I want the audience to think that there isn't a more beautiful place for him to be, that he is at home in Japan and finally at peace.<br><br>There are many useless acts of bravery we do out of misguided romanticism, and this movie is full of courageous and dignified acts of bravery. So I wanted to play off these acts, since both the American and Japanese cultures have a concept of heroism, and I just wanted to see if I could play with the nature of the two different concepts.<br><br>So you didn't want to do the stereotypical Japanese thing...<br><br>Absolutely not! Take Akira Kurosawa's Ran, for example, which has this brilliant score where Takemitsu writes Western music, but with an Eastern accent. Somebody asked me a few days ago why As Good As It Gets was European – why did I write a European score for a quintessentially American story? For me, it's because Jack Nicholson was crazy in the movie, and I felt one of the great things about America is how they always think we Europeans are crazy. So by writing a European-styled score, it's my way of saying that Jack is crazy, but it's alright!<br><br>How do you feel about people who criticize your work for not fitting into the time period, like Gladiator?<br><br>The reason I take these jobs is because I'm interested in foreign cultures, and every time I get to work on a movie I'm thrown into the adventure of whatever that culture is, the time, and wherever the story's taking place. So one of the things I'm very careful about is not to be historically correct to the culture, but, on the other hand, not to insult the underlying aesthetics of that culture either. I remember watching Chariots of Fire and thinking how brilliantly the music worked, never missing that it wasn't period instruments! I grew up listening to Bach played by a symphony orchestra – it's the wrong sized orchestra with the wrong instruments, but I don't think that's the point.<br><br>With Gladiator, Pietro Scalia brought in a CD saying "this is Ancient Roman music," and I said, "Says who? You went to the Ancient Roman music store and bought an Ancient Roman music CD? Bullshit!" We're not anthropologists. Look at he costumes Ridley Scott had: they were more Napoleonic than Roman, which was perhaps fitting since Napoleon had stolen all of his good ideas from the Romans regarding how to make his generals look cool – and so did Hitler! So I got criticized for making the "Entry into Rome" cue too Leni Riefenstahl – but that was the joke! I am allowed to have a sense of humor in my music!<br><br>Earlier this summer your credit on Pirates of the Caribbean was "Score Overproduced by". What was the deal with that?<br><br>Well, I thought honesty was a virtue! But seriously, Jerry Bruckheimer quite rightly asked me not to give him "that old-fashioned Pirate music," and Gore Verbinski, who I adore and did The Ring with, said, "Well, it is a pirate movie, so we have to disguise it." In the end, I spent a day and a half writing tunes, Klaus Badelt wrote a lot of stuff, and we rolled up our sleeves, got drunk, behaved in a debauched way, and produced a score!<br><br>There was a lot of criticism regarding that score, but in the end it had to serve the film - which it did. You seem to get a lot of criticism on any project you do.<br><br>I had the misfortune of going onto the Film Score Monthly web site recently to look something up and vanity made me type in my own name. I suddenly realized that you can't ever get it right. Who do people want me to be? The guy that writes Matchstick Men? Or the guy that writes The Rock? Or the guy that writes Driving Miss Daisy? My need is ultimately to write for myself. I mock myself and I'm ironic about the way I speak about it because if I take it too seriously, it would be a pompous and boring thing to do. But at the same time I take each note I write very seriously – none of them are random.<br><br>The Internet Movie Database always lists you as being attached to multiple projects, so I was curious, what's Sharktail?<br><br>I complained to Jeffrey Katzenberg that I couldn't cross any more Red Seas, or deal with any more horses that can't speak – I wanted to do one of the fun animated movies instead. There's also a hip-hop element in Sharktail, and I haven't been there yet, so it's new territory! King Arthur is still in production, and I literally just got the first bits of footage just before you came here.<br><br>Are you working on all of these projects simultaneously?<br><br>I'm thinking about them! I'm also working with Jim Brooks on his new comedy, Spanglish.<br><br>And speaking of comedies, you recently did Matchstick Men for Ridley, which had a very Nino Rota vibe to it....<br><br>And I gave him credit! I thought, what if Nino had written the theme and I was just doing the variations? But I bet I'm going to get criticized for that because it's not like Gladiator.<br><br>So when did you last have a vacation?<br><br>Well, I went to Japan for a couple of days at the end of November for the Japanese premiere of Samurai, but look, I love what I do! In January I'll travel to Morocco because Ridley will be shooting his next movie, Kingdom of Heaven, so that's like a holiday!<br><br>My family and I are going away at Christmas, and what we used to do would be to rent a house in the mountains and go on these skiing holidays. It would be a crappy house, not as nice as the one we live in, my wife was still going to the market, and we're still washing our plates – so it wasn't a vacation, it was a lot of work! It's taken us a long time, but we just figured it out: we're not practical with vacations – we're staying at hotels! But while the Zimmer family isn't talented when it comes to vacations, we're talented when it comes to work!<br><br>I sat through Samurai the other day, and for the first time watched the whole movie from top to tail with everything finished and completed. It felt really good, better than a vacation. But luckily there were enough things wrong for me to think that I learned something from the experience, and now I can't wait for the next project to try these new ideas out.<br><br>The soundtrack to The Last Samurai is available from Elektra Records, and the film is currently in theaters. Matchstick Men is available on Varese Sarabande Records.<br><br>With thanks to Chet Mehta at Chasen & Co, Jason Cienkus at Warner Brothers, and Nina Lynch and Mark Wherry at Media Ventures for helping with this interview. And, of course, special thanks to Hans.Mulan get his release... through Disney+, 4th September.Mulan is being released on sept 4th.

So Lorne's mp3 uploads. Would anyone class that as an 'official' release of the music from the movie?

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.

yeah i would put 'Gravity', 'Oblivion' and even 'Ender's Game' in the pot of similarities

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.

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...

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 ?

@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.

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.

The score is really amazing . It suited the visuals and tells a beautiful story . Shame the film did not do better because I enjoyed . Defiantly would like the soundtrack released

The tracks are amazing . It's like Bladerunner mixed with an orchestra wow


Peter2017-08-26 18:54:47
If the new Bladerunner sounds as good as Ghost then I will be very very happy . Is Balfe also working with Ximmer on the score ?


Idil2017-08-27 01:55:44
Great great music with cool synths and strings


Alan2017-08-29 00:03:23

I have a question. Wherefrom is the soudntrack art here on this website?


DerProfl2017-08-18 15:13:58
I mean the cover art, of course.


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-18 15:14:30
My good friend David made it !


...2017-08-19 12:06:54
Do you have any idea how many tracks does Lorne want to release?


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-19 12:49:21
I think he'll release all he can... ;)


Micheal2017-08-19 18:14:47
I asked Balfe and he is releasing the whole soundtrack


Anonymous2017-08-19 23:50:55
All of his cues isn't the whole soundtrack though. It's not like he'll be releasing Clint Mansell's material :(


Michael2017-08-20 00:38:00
Incorrect . Only a hand full of cues were Mansells . Check your facts ...... or ask Balfe himself ?


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-20 01:11:55
Yeah not that much was kept from him...


David2017-08-20 02:24:26
Oops that was me as Anonymous.

I was just doing the math! I don't know all the details about the score, so don't pick on me :P

Hybrid, do you know exactly what material from the film is Clint Mansell? I'll bet you could find out!


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-20 09:29:06
Err... if you had just scrolled down... lol


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

Which ones are Blake's composed Themes for the movie "The Da Vinci Code"?

Jeez can't you quit ?

It's not documented ! Unless you go ask Blake himself, you'll never know

Promotional Album has release date or we must wait until Lorne Balfe to upload the rest of the tracks?
