Marc just reunited with Ridley on the amazing Raised By Wolves series.<br><br>Klaus is more worried about his other businesses rather than film scoring, I think...Will any tracks from Man of Steel be played on the Live2021 tour? It is a life ambition of mine to experience a live performance of it!I missed Jasha Klebe. I thought he did some really good stuff at Bleeding Fingers. I am looking forward to hearing more from Kara Talve. I think she is a really good talent.<br><br>What happened to Marc Streitenfeld? I was going to ask about Klaus Badelt, but I am pretty sure I am not going to get that story.<br>Tom's more recent work has received more love, but I personally love the Fury Road and Rise of an Empire type soundtrack more. I'm looking forward to this and I hope it's close to what Man of Steel and Dawn of Justice sounded like. Although, the snippet he shared doesn't really sound like it. We'll see.That´s why I asked myself, why dont they ever re-unite like before, so yea, they sometimes do
Interestingly, Aljoscha is collaborating a lot with 2WEI these days. The Junkie Team reassembles ! lolOh I see, very interesting! Many thanks for the answer :)Fired ?!
<br>
<br>Haha no.
<br>
<br>You gotta realize being an additional composer is not exactly an easy thing. Some jump ship after a few years or have other aspirations, try to work solo and so on.
<br>
<br>Vörlander worked for Junkie from 2010 to 2015, then started his own business of writing for commercials, trailers etc. (it's called 2WEI, in Germany) He even did keep working on some trailers for JXL's scores after that, or helped on FIFA 17. Junkie had Aljoscha Christenhuß who worked for him from 2015 to 2018. Then Antonio jointed in 2016, Sara Barone joined more recently last year.
<br>
<br>Thomas is doing his own thing too, he founded Chromium Music and is doing some solo projects now.
<br>
<br>Jasha, after working for Lorne & Hans, "transfered" to Bleeding Fingers but after a while left to focus on his own solo career too.
<br>
<br>Ultimately, everyone leaves, sooner or later... :)@Hybrid, I was always wondering, what happened to composers like Thomas Farnon, Jasha Klebe or Christian Vorlander - why are they not working with Lorne/Junkie anymore? Did they get fired or did they just move on? I find it weird, that Lorne/Rupert/Junkie/Etc would fire their additional composers after all those years of collaboration.The theme he was supposed to write but didn't ? :D lol<br><br>Well don't take word for word what he says. He's being general, the interview was for Forbes afterall.<br><br>Just take the extract we got, it had a quote from BvS that had nothing to do with either Superman or Wonder Woman... lol
*forgot to mentioned"Besides the Man of Steel theme for Superman and the theme for Wonder Woman, which I have given a new spin, all the other themes for this movie are brand new,”<br><br>I hope Tom just forget to mention about Batman's theme and will reuse it too, because if he don't, then what's the point of it?Junkie's score for GvK is probably going to be better than his score for Justice League if he is that interested in doing a score for a godzilla movie.And this<br><br>“On Godzilla vs. Kong, I said, ‘I think we need the biggest bass drum on the planet for this score. I know the guy who can build it, what do you think?’ They just said, ‘Let’s do it.’ So I said I want a bass drum that is at least eight feet in diameter,” he laughed. “The guy called me back, and he asked, ‘Is it okay if it’s only six?’ I said, ‘Could we do eight? Why can’t we do ten?’ The answer was, ‘Well, there’s simply no cow alive that has a skin big enough to cover for a ten-foot bass drum.’ So, we have to scale it down to eight.Also, a bit of GvK:<br><br>'A perfect example is the Godzilla vs. Kong movie that is coming out next year,” he enthused. “I’m such a Godzilla freak. I have all the Japanese versions of the movies. At a certain point, just for s**ts and giggles, I wrote something for Godzilla. About two years ago, I met the director because he showed interest in me as a composer. I asked him, ‘Do you know I’m the biggest Godzilla fan on the planet, and, years ago, I wrote some stuff.’ He was like, ‘You’re kidding me?’ So we started communicating, I tweaked what I did, played it for him, and he was totally in love.”
Tom's interview kinda exactly confirms what I said ! lol<br><br>"Besides the Man of Steel theme for Superman and the theme for Wonder Woman, which I have given a new spin, all the other themes for this movie are brand new,” he revealed. “Some of them I did the groundwork on four years ago, but as you grow as a composer, you look at what you did and maybe have a better way of doing it now or a better idea. It was inspiring. I would get an idea in my downtime and think, ‘Oh, let’s rework this thing. Let’s do that.’ Because I knew for a while that this was coming, I had the time and space to shape it into its best possible form."@Hybrid besides Tom style, do you like the more orchestral style with Di Lorio or the more electronic style with Vorlander?Interesting! It sounds like he’s almost starting from the ground up, which actually might end up sounding better than what we would’ve gotten had the original film been released in 2017. <br><br>I’m also interested in the theme suites/sketchbooks he wrote back then, and if they will still be used as a basis for the score. Either way the end result is gonna be cool I feel, hopefully we get a great score release from WaterTower!Well since the thing is completely going to be re-edited (series format, probably 4h movie after), lots of scenes added & altered (something even if Snyder had stayed in 2017, he couldn't have done freely), a lot of work to be done for sure.
<br>
<br>Writing new cues, maybe changing others completely. Rewriting with all the edits probably making scenes longer etc.
<br>
<br>You probably have the core of the score, the themes, the big ideas & cues done, but you have to readapt it almost completely ! And, as I said, in 3 years, maybe Tom can listen to something he wrote 3 years ago and go "ok, I got that completely wrong, let's try something else."@HybridSoldier<br>That’s completely true. Do you think we will ultimately get a hybrid of Tom’s original score mixed with whatever else he is writing currently? <br><br>He says in the preview that there is much more to write, which is interesting considering the original cut was supposedly “mostly done”...

Strange and unexpected collection of additional guys for this score, Jeff Morrow who I associate with Christophe Beck rather than RC and then Kazuma Jinnouchi?! What happened to Jackman's regular dudes like Alex Belcher, Halli Cauthery etc?


Hybrid Soldier2019-07-17 12:30:51
Jeff & Alex & Evan Goldman are regular Jackman team now. Alex scored a bunch of projects, hence his absence here.

Then you have Halli, Anthony Willis or Mounsey doing all sorts of things when available.

Gavin Greenaway is the conductor

Kazuma Jinnouchi helped Jackman, that's a pleasant surprise!


Mephariel2019-07-17 05:47:48
Yep. Jinnouchi is a pretty talented composer.


ThePhantasm2019-07-17 08:06:36
He did a great job with Halo

Composer credits, for those interested.


mpolonest123 2019-07-16 19:25:25
Thanks Hybrid. It’s cool to see that Jackman worked solo on the strongest cues in the score. I wonder why the end credits piece was not included on the album though.


DT-20172019-07-16 23:17:16
Probably because it includes the OG Pokemon theme.

DT-2017 reply Replies: 0 || 2019-05-16 23:03:24
This is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.

Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 9 || 2019-04-19 16:06:45
As someone who grew up with Pokémon as a kid, I am super pumped to see how Jackman approaches this. Seeing how the marketing is skewing to 80’s music (and the visuals have that neon color scheme to match the noir tone) I wonder if this will be either be fully orchestral or synthesizered.


mpolonest123 2019-04-19 16:08:08
And if he will incorporate any music from the show/games....


PikaPika2019-04-19 17:31:04
.....synthesizered


mpolonest123 2019-05-03 07:15:24
So Jackman did end up leaning heavily on the synths for this one.

While there are no standout themes here, I do think it’s a fun little score overall. “Ryme City” particularly sticks out to me as a great throwback type cue.


MrZimmerFan2019-05-06 14:34:04
There is a plenty of interesting synths here, but mostly it's ok.

Far for other works like Kingsman or Jumanji.


mpolonest123 2019-05-06 15:07:23
Jackman is one of those composers who I generally like, but not love. The only scores that he has done that have “wowed” me are both Kingsmans and to a lesser extent; Winter Soldier. (Birth of a Nation is also pretty solid)

Outside of those, most of his music ranges from fun to serviceable imo. He is talented for sure, but I’m still waiting for something else that blows me away.


JBSO992019-05-06 19:37:49
In my opinion, his Kingsman scores, Kick-Ass and his Wreck-It Ralph scores are the few great things I've heard from him, the rest being from good to generic.

I think he really has talent, but not many times is able to show it properly.

And I also think he works better in collaboration scores (like the ones with Matthew Margeson or his contributions to scores like At World's End)


anon2019-05-07 00:10:43
It's amazing how much better everyone magically sounds when working on a Zimmer score ;-).


mpolonest123 2019-05-07 01:21:52
^^ Wreck-it-Ralph, Jumanji, Predator, etc. are all good examples of scores that are enjoyable enough, but never quite impressed me on the same level as some of his peers. To his credit though, Jackman does have a fairly distinctive voice, with a slight hint of Silvestri.

I did forget to mention one of my faves from him, “First Class”.


MrZimmerFan2019-05-07 11:15:21
Jumanji and The Predator, at least for me, are from his best works.

Even First Class, with The Last Stand, my favs for X-Men

According to a friend that listens to EVERYTHING, its a nothingburger.


George2019-05-02 21:59:34
Bummer, I was sorta looking forward to this one. I’ll still give it a listen, but I was hoping this would be another Jackman hit.


T-Mann0362019-05-03 01:39:00
Actually, it's a somethingburger. Most of the tracks have some OK, but very humorous. And one track had me in the feels. Overall, it's an above average soundtrack.
