home is very very soothing. (i sound like i have said it before lol) 
<br>
<br>itís the one cue i can listen to a zillion times and never get tired of. i hope upcoming movies will give Hans or whoever in remote control an opportunity to do similar cues. elisabeth in inferno is the closest but is so short.
<br>
<br>i have mellowed. i love these mellow cues.John Powell stated on his Instagram that the album will have 19 tracks, and be over an hour!Its not a film, its an album. This was still during the days of Hans' involvement with 'The Buggles'.I don't think you have listened to the Star Trek scores properly. Giacchino has a main theme that he uses a lot, but also a theme for Spock, themes for the bad guys of each movie and even a theme for the city of Yorktown in the third movie.<br><br>Another great example of this is LOST, where almost all the characters had a theme that played through all the series and there were also themes for locations or even situations.<br><br>So I don't think Giacchino is out of the use of themes.I mean sure, but I can't think of many Giacchino scores that actually match that description. The Star Trek reboot scores for example, where he has a (pretty good) main theme that he plays the same way roughly sixteen thousand times over and over again. :p
For me, a theme is a distinguishable motif or piece of music that is related to a specific location, event or most commonly character, and that the viewer notices as such. If your score contains 20 themes that are never repeated in a similar form and are so uncharacteristic that they all sound the same, I'm just calling that orchestra noise. And I don't see any appeal in that kind of scoring...Ds, am I reading that correctly that you're using the fact that JJ works with Giacchino as evidence that the score might *not* be melodic or thematic? Because say what you want about Giacchino (and I'm far from his biggest fan either), it's an objective fact that he writes film music that is almost exclusively thematic/melodic. Whether you like those themes and melodies is another question, but they are undeniably themes and melodies.Yeah, totally agree IMO Mad Max is over rated, this is JunkieXL's best score as a solo outing, especially Tom's Sketchbook is so awesome & Batman v Superman is a perfect score in itself but yeah some pieces will fit perfectly. On another note Justice League (2017) could've benefited from Tom's presence but the movie failed from every point of view.Now released: http:/ /filmmusicreporter.com/2018/04/19/soundtrack-album-for-sky-h unter-to-be-released/<br><br>https: //www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C26S729/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_ tl?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creat iveASIN=B07C26S729&linkId=18cb85bfc0aaee3094cdba507fe05649I hope Balfe delivers but he has not done a score that I really listen to more than once so I hope this will be it.
I agree with Edmund for the most part, except that JJ Abrams usually works with Giacchino, and Cruise's recent productions include Jack Reacher 2 and Edge of Tomorrow. So I wouldnt exactly take a melodic or thematic score for granted...<br>That being said, at this point I expect something like Penguins, but I secretely hope for something really amazing and surprising that would explain why McQuarrie broke up with Kraemer.BOOKLET CREDITS (From The Album):<br><br>Score Composed, Produced And Mixed By<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Additional Music By<br>ALJOSCHA CHRISTENHUB<br>ANTONIO DI IORIO<br><br>Orchestra Conducted By<br>JOHN ASHTON THOMAS<br><br>Technical Score Engineer<br>ALEX RUGER<br><br>Additional Programming By<br>EMILY RICE<br>JACOPO TRIFONE<br><br>Music Editor<br>SIMON CHANGER<br><br>Assistant Music Editors<br>BEN SMITHERS<br>ARABELLA WINTER<br><br>Music Consultant<br>BOB BADAMI<br><br>Score Orchestrated And Copied By<br>JONATHAN BEARD<br>EDWARD TRYBEK<br>HENRI WILKINSON<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Librarian<br>JILL STREATER<br><br>Orchestra Contractors<br>ISOBEL GRIFFITHS<br>SUSSIE GILLIS<br><br>Orchestral Recording Engineer And Mixer<br>NICK WOLLAGE<br><br>Orchestra Recorded At<br>AIR STUDIO<br><br>Air Studios Managers<br>ALISON BURTON<br>CHARLOTTE MATTHEWS<br>LUCY MATTHEWS<br><br>Music Production Services<br>MICHIEL GROENEVELD<br><br>Agent<br>AMOS NEWMAN<br><br>Legal Representation<br>DAVID ALTSCHUL<br><br>Music Recorded <br>6-7 January 2018<br>At<br>AIR STUDIOS, London<br><br>Score Published By<br>UNITED LION MUSIC, INC.

why hybrid when lorne himself confirmed it? <.<@Hybrid, can you confirm Lorne is scoring MI6?I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.

I have a question: Did Dennis Villeneuve approach both composers, or he approached Hans first, and then Hans chose Wallfisch as his partner? If it has happened that way, I am a bit surprised he didn't choose Tom Holkenborg who has praised Vangelis' score continuously and seems very experienced with this style of music...Of course I still consider Ben an excellent coice!


Waymann2017-10-03 15:18:57
I think it has to do something with Wallfisch his work on Dunkirk. I mean variation 15 sounds a bit like it could be in a Blade Runner movie...

Hedon reply Replies: 0 || 2017-10-02 17:29:57
Who else was involved with compositional duties/arrangements other than HZ and BW? I'm sure there must be some contributions by Andrew Kawczynski and Steve Mazzaro or? They would make a great team given the need for the electronic Vangelis vibe in this score.

Whatever the case may be between composers, all I gotta say is this: if there's a scene involving wandering through the ruins of Las Vegas (which there is), make my composer Zimmer.

MrZimmerFan reply Replies: 1 || 2017-09-30 12:56:26
That's not possible, because all written by Johannsson was over-written by Zimmer and Wallfisch


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-30 14:12:06
Yeah... BTW Villeneuve commented on Johannsson :

"The thing I will say is that making movies is a laboratory. Itís an artistic process. You cannot plan things. Jůhann Jůhannsson is one of my favorite composers alive today. Heís a very strong artist. But the movie needed something different, and I needed to go back to something closer to Vangelis. Johan and I decided that I will need to go in another directionóthatís what I will say. I hope I have the chance to work with him again because I think heís really a fantastic composer."

Darrell reply Replies: 0 || 2017-09-30 12:40:09
Interesting. At game-ost the whole two albums: first is the digital release by Johann Johannsson; second is CD by Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer. There is the three composers or two?

I don't understand. Does it mean there's only 2049 OST ? 2049 double-cd ost or 2049 double-cd OST with a number ?


Everan2017-09-30 02:13:50
It's a 2 disc edition, marked with a number. Only 2049 editions will be released, the one you get will be numebered because of them only being 2049 editions.

The digital editions and other CD ones if there are any wil lprobably not be numbered and can be ordered by over 20149 people

Why do people always make such a big deal about the album cover? I heard the same for Dunkirk, Transformers 5, Game of Thrones season 7, etc... literally who cares? As long as the music is quality and the movie is great then I'm more than satisfied.


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-27 23:56:24
Yeah lol it's digital era, there will be 200 alternate fan covers all over the internet in no time... I prefer a bad cover of a released album than no release...


JBSO992017-09-28 09:25:35
Obviously, I think that most people prefer to have a release and the music to be great (as well as the movie), but if you can have that with a nice cover art, that's better, but it's not such a big deal to be complaining about.

That is one bad ost cover... looks like someone just cropped the poster and added original soundtrack. The title is way too close to the bottom edge.


JBSO992017-09-27 23:23:13
2CD Edition! YASSS!Could the 6th of October come faster, please?

Anyway, the cover is not bad, at least for me, but something similar to the header of this webpage would have been better. But you just have to wait to the fan covers and they will surely bring something better.


Ahmad2017-09-27 23:38:49
They had me at 2,049 copies and two freaking discs! Better be a nice digipak. Can't wait.
Anyone else having issues completing their order?


Medigo2017-09-28 00:01:14
Pray thats its not a repeat of the last SPECIAL bladerunner OST release


Paul2017-09-28 00:22:52
This cover without the names of composers somehow implies that it might be one of those releases, full of songs that are not necessarily related to the movie? Just a thought... I hope it will not be like that though.


Mephariel2017-09-28 01:10:43
Could it be they are legally not allowed to put Zimmer and Wallfisch's names in front?


Waymann2017-09-28 08:53:11
Wondering how much people are going the say that Zimmer has lost his groove because this is going to be a atmospheric score like Dunkirk.

GrayEdwards reply Replies: 6 || 2017-09-25 07:44:26
Any news on an OST release date? I hope this isn't another Ghost in the Shell. It would surprise me if a Zimmer release for a film this big was not released, but isn't the record label cutting it kind of close, with not even an announcement made with less than two weeks before the premiere?


Saurabh2017-09-25 08:16:53
Maybe coz the track titles are spoiler-ish.


Waymann2017-09-25 08:33:06
This is score is easy money for the studio... Of course there will be a score release.


Ds2017-09-25 09:24:14
They dont have to give track titles when they announce a release. Remember Dunkirk, the score was announced in advance but track names arrived on release day!


JBSO992017-09-25 09:28:03
I think this is even more expected than Dunkirk so a score release I think will definitely happen.

And this has been in the hands of Zimmer and Wallfisch for more than two months. GuyS was a different story because Lorne entered the project in the last month before the release.


JBSO992017-09-25 09:28:53
Sorry, I ment GitS*


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-25 09:45:28
Still waiting for news. From what I heard, as the film is Alcon / Warner / Sony-Columbia co-production, WaterTower is not releasing the soundtrack, and neither is Sony. Alcon is... The thing is, I don't think they ever released a soundtrack on their own before lol... Might be why all this is taking a little time... But it's coming. :)

So, there's music in the Road to 2049 site, and it's pretty cool, but no idea if it's actual score. The lenght seems more like promo track for trailers.

Would be great to know where it's from, score or otherwise, because it's a great track and hope the score sounds like this!

Here's the site
roadto2049. bladerunnermovie. com


Max Potcats2017-09-23 00:27:04
interessting... i really think it can be a HZ/ BW / JJ track, it doesn't sound that commercial and basic


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-23 10:17:59
I have no idea, it's been there since July, could be...

Check the featurette that came out a few days ago, "The World of Blade Runner", in it I think is definitely score material !


...2017-09-23 16:39:56
There's an interview where the director talks about the score being brilliant and he says Walfischs name before Zimmers so we can guess that zimmer being busy with the tour didn't have time to do that much on this score so this will be a mostly wallfish score.


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-23 16:55:08
Any link to that ITW ? :)

Yeah Hans probably wrote the main ideas and probably a bunch of the big cues but Wallfisch wrote a good chunk of it... :)


...2017-09-23 17:55:42
Here's the interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBALBRBmDfg

He starts talking about the score, quite passionately, at 05:50:)

Yeah that's probably the case! I think Wallfish is a great composer so I am sure it'll sound great!

I'll quote Daniel Pemberton's Tweet here "It's like some one has taken the Film Score Monthly message board and printed it in a national newspaper.."


Waymann2017-09-19 08:35:25
StopHansZimmer ?? That does also mean stop Lorne Balfe, Benjamin Wallfisch, Steve Jablonksy, Geoff Zanelli, Henry Jackman, Dominic Lewis, etc... They are Hans Zimmer now.



Waymann2017-09-19 10:02:00
Also, even before the score is released for Blade Runner 2049 they all say it's going to be bad because Zimmer is scoring it instead of a composer who, let's be honest never proved he could do a movie with this kind of scale. Let's wait for the score the released maybe it's going to be great.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-19 13:03:01
This is a pretty dumb article. Zimmer isn't who needs to be stopped, it's the Hollywood execs who ask composers to copy him rather than develop their own original voices. We've heard from Steamboy what someone like Jablonsky can do, but 90% of the time when he gets hired it's to be a cheaper version of Zimmer. That's what needs to be stopped, not Zimmer himself.


Peter2017-09-19 14:04:02
Hans delivers, and often goes beyond the directors imagination.
however, a bad movie can't have a very good score.
Give Hans something new, and he will deliver something new.
Successful people are often being ask to repeat their previous succes, limiting their creativity. #stopthestophanszimmerpeople


meta2017-09-19 14:10:05
His music is considered cost-effective and popular for the times...Honestly for Zimmer to go away the times would have to go away. Also factor in progress in technology which is slowly making regular instruments obsolete...

Tron 2.


Macejko2017-09-19 21:08:53
TRON 2 isn't a bad movie by any means, but I digress. I whole-heartedly agree with Edmund here; I could name dozens of bad movies with wonderful scores, and I'd say that the vast majority of them comes related to RCP.


Max Potcats2017-09-19 22:12:29
oh yes! my bad... I understood the opposite of what Edmund was saying...
And, yes, Tron 2 is not such a bad movie (partially thanks to the score :P )

Please make this a melodic memorable score. I understand due the context of the film their will most likely be sound design. All I want is one or two beautiful melodical electronic themes like the original Vangelis theme for BR. Hope to hear an epic emotional action sound similar to CHAPPiEs action themes. Please don't make another Dunkirk type score.

Hybrid, is Zimmer/Wallfisch actually done with the score or are they still working on it?


Saurabh2017-09-14 05:56:16
Hopefully we'll get some details by next week or so. I'm more curious to see what Wallfisch has done here coz I haven't heard his purely electronic sensibilities (if any).


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-14 18:49:24
I can't say much because I don't know much... I think everyone involved has some crazy NDA so they can't talk about it.

But about what I know, the score has definitely been completed a while back. Hans & Ben started working on somewhere between april & june. Hans was on tour, but he spent his 15 days break in July 100% on it, and probably continued at the end of the tour in august. For the second LA HZ show, Denis Villeneuve was actually there.

So rescore ? Yes definitely... Last min rush job ? Nope.


David2017-09-15 01:44:34
Oh, sh!t! Well that's great to hear! I'm now even more excited for the score! I absolutely cannot wait!

Do you know if JJ is still in there at all??

Ian reply Replies: 3 || 2017-09-14 07:50:41
I *really* hope the inclusion of Wallfisch on this means it doesn't just go in the direction of BvS/Inferno/Dunkirk sound design.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-14 13:13:08
I doubt it. Wallfisch is not a sound design guy, he's more classically inclined. In Dunkirk he was mostly in charge of the Elgar stuff, right?


James2017-09-14 13:53:29
Yes.


JBSO992017-09-14 14:19:49
But the thing that Wallfisch is in this it does not mean that it is goin to be different because he was also in Dunkirk and BvS. Okay, he was more in charge of more melodic parts but that does not mean that there won't be any sound design.

Anyway, I also prefer synths with amore emotional and melodical feel than the sound design, and in this movie fits better the mlodic parts, I think.

Mephariel reply Replies: 2 || 2017-09-14 05:03:19
There has to be release. Hans Zimmer and epic sci-fi but no release? I can't believe that.

The only thing I can think of is if there are some legal issues with Johannson.


KurosawaFan2017-09-14 05:41:42
so, is Johannson completely out of the picture?! I was SO looking forward to hearing what he'd come-up with...


JBSO992017-09-14 07:07:58
KurosawaFan Johannsson is definitely out of the project, but I'm not sure if Zimmer and Wallfisch will keep some of his score or his themes or if they are restoring completely.
I was also looking forward what he could bring to this movie, but Zimmer and Wallfisch are surely creating an amazing score.
