I imagined it ... hopefully this time Max Ritcher does not give him a lollipop and refuses to launch his musicYes Unbreakable.
<br>
<br>Exactly like White Fang. Have Poledouris write a score, then HZ do another, then pick what you want from both.
<br>
<br>Ghost In The Shell was kinda different...In the credits of the movie, Max Ritcher appears as the Main Composer, meanwhile, Lorne appears as Additional MusicI find that it would be best to accredit both and launch the two soundtracks and all happy.Hybrid implies that Max Ritcher's score was rejected, and that Lorne made a new one and in the end, the best of both has been used.  I am right?
ANd now apparently another guy is scoring it as well lmaoTechnically he's a little under 50% used so there's no obligation. But he wrote a whole score for it.but if Lorne has written 50% of the score you should have a credit like in Ghost in the shellLorne is got additional music credit, not for co-composer, and still appear the image of the label for the soundtrack.But Lorne is still not credited as an official composer.  It is possible that Lorne shares credit with Max.
In other news Lorne just finished compiling the OST for Gemini Man...When Richter was the composer there was an album planned at Deutsche Grammophon...<br><br>When Lorne jumped in to write a new score for the movie, apparently that release was cancelled... Now that film has like 50/50 MR LB, and nothing's planned at all.<br><br>So we'll see, but apart from posting some cues of his score online, like Lorne did before, I doubt there'll be an official release... And if Richter's release gets back on track, it would definitely have his score only.Hybrid, by "not happening" you mean Richter's part of the score or Balfe's? Or the whole thing is as messed up as Ghost in the Shell, regarding the score?@Hybrid why?Will they’re ever be a release score on YouTube and other websites this is a piece of art beautiful score 18 years later it’s still have been published please answer my question if have this score Gmail it to me it’s elijahboy564@gmail.com
Probably not happening...Huh. Weird how Harper and HGW worked on continuous chunks of the movie, like Hans assigned them reel by reel or something...any news about Ad Astra score release?The words mediocre is not something you use when talking about this score. Kamen score is good but not on this level, and Ottman doesn't even come close. But that's just my opinionYi and Everest Duet, The Leshen Buddha...<br>Absolutely gorgeous

@Hybrid
Night Hunter Soundtrack

Music By Alex Lu and produced by Benjamin Wallfisch
Alex Lu works on RCP? Benjamin is only producer or he made additional music?
Thanks


Knight2019-09-08 01:06:29
Alex Lu is one of Ben's techies, he also wrote additional music for Hellboy

Very exited to hear Ben on Score: The Podcast tomorrow. Hope they'll talk about IT 2 & making Shazam!!!

Having heard the whole album a few times and gone through the process of what Wallfisch tried to do with his music for Shazam, this is not only the best DC album in years, it's also powerful enough to sit alongside (or at least close to) Williams's Superman. This is by and large (unless Hans comes back with a game changer for Dark Phoenix), the winning superhero film score of 2019.

Well played, Wallfisch!


mpolonest123 2019-04-07 02:02:55
It’s excellent in every respect. The orchestrations, mixing, and writing are all fantastic. The album does run a bit long (not a bad thing of course) and there are a lot of action cues piled on top of each other, but with some editing you have 50 minutes of Five-Star material.


Knight2019-04-07 02:16:20
While the score itself is great, I think Ben needs to use somebody like Alan Meyerson to mix his scores. I noticed that on almost every single one of his scores since A Cure for Wellness his mixing/recordings have been a bit shit. The mix problem is EXTREMELY prominent in Serenity, The Darkest Minds, Hellboy, Hostile Planet and to a lesser extent, Shazam and Wellness.
His scores are starting to sound too dry and "synthy" for lack of a better word. Listen to the orchestral recordings in Hostile Planet and Serenity, can anyone honestly tell me that they sound good?
I would love nothing better than to get another score from him on the level of Summer in February, Mully or Gamba cause those sound great.


Edmund Meinerts2019-04-09 17:06:47
Gotta say I somewhat disagree with the lavish praise here. The main theme is fantastic; the melody itself isn't that memorable, but the quality of the orchestral writing surrounding it is high. Indeed, the orchestrations and textures are of a very high standard throughout. However, far from there being 50 minutes of 5* material, I find that outside the suite presentation, the rest of the score feels messy. It's one of those scores that reacts to what's happening onscreen rather than actively driving it, so there are a ton of changes of direction. I feel like you can sort of tell that the director comes from a horror background because there's a lot of that stop-start quality you get from horror scores in the action music here, and I'm not a fan of that philosophy. I much prefer action music to have a more constant pulse while still developing in a dynamic way to match the scene (my perfect example of that balance being the wedding cue from At World's End).

Apparently there was a 3rd score release from Ben this that just flew under the radar. A documentary score no less.

and why isn’t it on here?

/shrug
The staff here don't seem to care too much as of late about adding new stuff from RCP composers that aren't the big names. Jasha and Atli are still missing their latest efforts, and the new release of one of Mancina's old scores ain't here.


Hybrid Soldier2019-04-07 11:11:24
Probably because it'd be a good time for me to stop H-Z.com after 11 years ?


Knight2019-04-07 14:16:16
Are you stopping upkeep of this website in favor of the new one you mentioned earlier?

A few minutes ago about WaterTower Music release subway chase on YouTube today! It's a cool song.


MG2019-04-02 03:38:08
Sounds fantastic.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 2 || 2019-03-29 02:02:04
That main theme is incredible!

It’s basically a mix of John Williams and Wallfisch, and if the rest of the score is the same quality we might have one of the best scores this year.


Michael Baker2019-03-29 03:59:39
I agree. Great stuff. It's nice to hear some fun superhero bombast every once in a while. If the rest of the score is like the cues we've heard, I'll definitely be getting this one.


mpolonest123 2019-03-30 15:30:14
Does anyone else feel like 2:15-3:00 sounds exactly like Wallfisch’s “flying” music for “Peter Pan”?

Little side note: the minute I heard the song I immediately thought of the main tune from “Islands of Adventure” (Call To Adventure). Great theme if you haven’t had a chance to check it out...

I can't wait for this. After the debacle of JL, The DCEU has got back on track musically with Aquaman serving harmonic and electronic interpolation in spades, and Shazam seems to capitalize on that with a more traditional sound.

29 tracks? Woohoo!


Edmund Meinerts2019-03-29 10:47:06
I'd rather have 10 tracks and 70 minutes than 29 tracks and 40 minutes. :p


Iamtommie2019-03-29 13:10:20
It's 1 hour and 13 minutes long
