Anyone know where those go?<br>@Knight<br>Yeah I really can’t argue there. As much as I love Mortal Engines even I have to admit that recording was kind of awful, particularly with the studio noise filtering through.Ditto on the recordings, Mortal Engines was awful in this regard with the harsh mix and on top of that, an unforgiveable amount of session noise/chatter.I’ve been giving this score a few more shakes lately, if only to see if my initial opinion had changed. The biggest issue for me is the lack of a strong set of themes. Alita’s Theme, for example, works well enough in context but hasn’t really left any impression on me. Mortal Engines has about 7 primary themes, all of which are really strong. <br><br>Where I will praise Tom the most is the recording. Everything sounds crisp and clear, as opposed to his usual overmixed style. Here’s hoping that he sticks with this type of recording from now on. <br>And one other plus, the woodwinds! It’s so refreshing to hear the woodwinds play a prominent role here, especially in the almost classical way they are utilized.It seems the Japanese exclusive tracks are available on deezer, but not on any other platform. And weirdly enough, I couldn't find any download link anywhere.
Lieber Herr Zimmer,<br><br>würde über Ihre kurze Meldung über mein Stück freuen.<br><br>Liebe Grüße<br>Irakli Shermazanashvili<br><br>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-FWQaMm4p8"BBC Studios has announced that Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe will compose the theme and score for the upcoming BBC Earth natural history series One Planet, Seven Worlds. The show is presented and executive produced by Sir David Attenborough and will reveal how each distinct continent has shaped the unique animal life found there. Each of the series’ seven episodes will transport viewers to a single continent and tell the story of its spectacular wildlife and iconic landscapes. Zimmer, Shea and Klebe have previously composed music for BBC’s Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II (for Bleeding Fingers Music). One Planet, Seven Worlds will premiere later this year on BBC One in the UK and on BBC America in the U.S."<br><br>From filmmusicreporter.com<br><br>I wonder if its like no way its ever going to be released or there is a small chance we will see it one day.<br><br>Can anyone recall any scores for directors cut being released?Hello!<br>Have you any Informations for a Relaease to "PAGAN PEAK"? German TV Series "Der Pass" from Jacob Shea, Produced by Hans Zimmer?also was really good fantastic score IMHO his best since Mad Max.
Just saw the film Music was hitting on point in all the right spots.Don't know where else to put this... How much music did Hans + co. write for The Last Face? I know the movie flopped so it will probably never get released, but the 15 or so minutes that I've heard between YouTube and Andrew K's soundcloud is really pretty good. It's like Interstellar + The Lion King + Woman in Gold.Dear Hans Zimmer.<br><br>I have no idea if you ever read this, but i just want to thank you for all the amazing music you have create through the years.<br>You are truly a gifted man.<br>I hope you along your life had time to teach young talents so they will be able to create such amazing music as you in the future.<br>I dont know you, but i think you have a love for music and to experiment with music and be the best you can be.<br>I enjoy your music for movies and impressed how you created the music for "interstellar" with old fashion church ovel/pipes. I think this show you are great and special when you think out of the box and play and experiement with music due to creative talent.<br>( ps.. i cant even play an instrument my self, but i love your music ).<br><br>I wish you the very best, and peace and quiet during old age and hope you will continue to create music as long as you live. Please teach other talented young people to step in your place.<br><br>Thank you for everyting amazing work.<br><br>A fan  ;-)7m4!!! The BEST cue from Hans since years!!!Whoa, that's right, I forgot a Gladiator sequel was being made. But I feel like something would have to shake Heaven and Earth before Hans worked on a Ridley Scott movie again. But then, Powell reunited with Greengrass for Jason Bourne (however uninspired that score was). So I guess anything's possible.
I got them from a japanse store after an hour going through hoops VPN paypal and google translate.<br><br>Very strange cause this are one of the best tracks of the entire score<br><br>Very weird the score or the movie havent attracted much attention at all.Hope Zimmer comes back to do Gladiator 2.Currently the only way I know to get it from is Japanese iTunes.well aren’t u special. it’s gonna leak so on account of so many ppl having it. myself included.Where can I listen to I see church?<br><br>I cannot find it anywhere and even YouTube doesn't have it.<br>

So just like Divergent, the score is completely butchered in film. The main “London” tune is only used for about 30 seconds in the entire film (disregarding it being tracked into the credits suite) and most of the other music from album seems to be either suites, alternates, or heavily chopped up on screen. The editing in the film is pretty bad, so I’m wondering if that may have affected the score in some way.

Surprisingly there is one excellent unreleased cue, which transitions into “First Strike”, that takes the “Shan Guo” ostinato and overlays the operatic MEDUSA vocals which turn to screams at one point. Also some unreleased Hester/Shrike piano music...

Very strange this score hasn't had more hype on this site.

They came out in the same week but all the hype seems to go to Aquaman which is the B-version of Thor: Ragnarock.

I think this score is more interesting in orchestration and has a better thematic identity. Tracks like 'Resurrected Man' are really great.

Shame it went under the radar cause it is one of the better RCP outings this year

First Impressions:

This might be one of the most “traditional” scores that Tom has scored at this point in his career. The strings/brass still have the signature JXL sound to them, but the music feels more mature when compared to something like Mad Max or even his most recent outings.

I’m still picking up on the themes as of now (the most obvious being the main fanfare and Hester’s tune) but the idea for Shrike is definitely a clear standout. Especially when it gets an emotional spin later on. The use of woodwinds and the operatic female solo vocals also are a nice addition.

Overall this has to be the biggest surprise of the year for me. Having sorta given up on Junkie after being disappointed by his output in the past few years I never expected him to write a fantasy score on this level (while still keeping one foot in his comfort zone of course). Hopefully more producers actually demand quality music from him, as opposed to the shit we got from
Tomb Raider and Deadpool.


Anonymous2018-12-14 15:42:10
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.


mpolonest123 2018-12-14 16:30:08
^ 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.

Similar issue I have with Giacchino, who I think writes amazing music which gets undercut by the really dry mixing.


MrZimmerFan2018-12-14 18:14:35
Conrad Pope is only conductor in this, not orchestrator.

Andreas reply Replies: 0 || 2018-12-14 10:04:01
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" ?

MrZimmerFan reply Replies: 1 || 2018-12-13 19:11:32
I'm listening right now, one of the best works by Tom, by far.

Beautiful choir, great action tracks (even there is a great renditions of the themes, Windflower with that version of Shrike's theme is gorgeous) and multiples themes.


Anonymous2018-12-13 23:19:07
Great work.

I love Tom's aggressive and extreme way of mixing and bold use of percussion.

Glad to see him linked to Alita: Battle Angel too

Why wouldn't Peter Jackson have Howard Shore score?


Edmund Meinerts2018-12-10 09:26:24
Peej only produced this film, didn't direct it, and also I sorta think he and Howard Shore don't have the warmest of relationships considering the King Kong firing and then the way the music was mistreated in the Hobbit films.


Anonymous2018-12-10 14:37:39
Skipped the Hobbit films. How so was the music mistreated in those?


MrZimmerFan2018-12-10 15:58:11
Jackson use more LOTR music than the original music created for the movie.

Altough, Watertower releases respect the material written by Shore (as he wanted)


Edmund Meinerts2018-12-10 16:44:14
Especially in the first one, there's a ton of LOTR themes needledropped even though Shore wrote original material for those exact scenes that you can hear on the album, and also there are themes used in scenes where they don't belong at all. Oh and the main theme of the first one and a couple of the secondary ones completely disappear from the second and third movies


superultramegaa2018-12-11 00:05:52
Don't forget the pointless changes like the opening title music for AUE being replaced with an E Major version of The Shire and Gandalf's Farewells for some reason. Or temp tracking earlier pieces of the film in for later scenes.


lumpy2018-12-11 11:15:02
get this a cd-release too


Oscarilbo2018-12-12 20:26:25
The "problem" with The Hobbit scores came just on the first movie and just because it changed from being 2 movies to be a whole trilogy. So... the "punch" points had to be changed on AUJ, meaning that very subtle moments had to be now enhanced every way possible specially by the score so you have much more dramatic emphasis than you had it before, because now you're gonna end the movie MUCH MORE sooner that originally planned.

Nothing to do with Jackson not liking what Shore did. Shore even had the same themes that were ultimately used in the final film, they just were more subtle... even the wrongly music known as "wraights theme" when Throin charges against Azog (which is actually related to all agents of Sauron) was used there by Shore before the changes, just again, the connection was more subtle when that was not going to be the climax of the film.

Tom just released "London Suite in C Major" on his YouTube channel, and I am really loving it. He's usually hit-or-miss for me, but this cue in particular really intrigues me. Sounds like he merged the orchestral sections of Fury Road with the flighty ballads of Hollywood Golden Age music.


Ds2018-12-11 11:35:53
It's great but sadly it's only used in the end credits :-(
I suspect it might have been an alternate version of the opening scene.

Anyway the rest of the score is absolutely stunning, a good balance between heavy action and themes (and incredible choir). A new high in JXL's career, let's hope the OST release does it justice.

Mike2018-12-06 23:20:05
On repeat listens, it sounds like if someone tossed Fury Road into a blender with Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries and Michael Giacchino's Medal of Honor scores. A surprisingly good combination, if you ask me.


mpolonest123 2018-12-07 01:30:36
I’m pleasantly surprised. The whole thing has a very “classic Hollywood” fantasy type feel to it, with Holkenborg’s usual percussion and strings overlaid. The mixing is still a bit too harsh and overproduced, but I’m loving what I hear so far. Here’s hoping the rest stays consistently strong...


Andreas2018-12-07 09:54:16
Saw the film few days ago. Score is one of the best things in the film. Indeed a mix of BvS en Mad Max, only more orchestral. Can't wait to listen to it again.
