Lorne has nothing to do with interstellarGITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere
I think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.
Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nickís score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*

He mentions on a podcast that he kind of fucked up his relationship with Jeffrey Katzenberg around that time. It's all good now though apparently.

I second Edmund's response there ;)
Neither of them seem the type to do much co-composing these days (aside from with assistants), but I'd be excited for any project that has both of them attached.


Powellfan2019-08-07 19:31:44
Fuck that was stupid of me. That was meant to reply to the last thread.


Hybrid Soldier2019-08-07 19:45:09
John & Harry are still close.

They never miss a chance to compete with each other. Back then it was with co-compositions, now it's more with tennis... lol

But they've never lost touch...


Powellfan2019-08-07 20:13:49
Haha, that's cool. For some reason the idea of composers doing anything not music-related just doesn't cross my mind :)

I see you enjoy the little games you get to play with all of the hints and vague allusions Hybrid. ;)

"Eating Alone" is a very lovely track.


Edmund Meinerts2019-08-03 17:34:16
Yeah it's gorgeous isn't it? A Harry Gregson-Williams contribution I believe. I wish it was a bit longer though.


Mike2019-08-03 18:51:16
Reused in "Starry Night."

Unrelated, is there any particular reason John Powell didn't return to score the sequels with Harry?


jjstarA1132019-08-05 02:20:36
Powell says in this interview with Polygon that he "pushed a little too hard" with his own ideas on the first Shrek (and Harry did most of the score anyway), so when he didn't get asked to do Shrek 2, he thought it made sense. "Everybody wants you to have strong ideas," he says, "they just donít want you to be a dick about it."

Hopefully we will see HGW & JP reunited very soon ! ;)

...wait what? :O

Dream team!


lord silly nipples2019-08-06 01:58:55
I always assumed it was because of either scheduling issues or money that Powell didn't return.

I seen that in the upcoming Disney (Zootopia)the music will be composed by Harry Greson-Williams and John Powell. Is this true?


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-01 08:54:40
That seems HIGHLY unlikely...remember when those two were rumored to be scoring Breaking Dawn together? :p

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2014-10-28 22:18:38
Any particular reason John Powell didn't work on the next 3 Shrek films?

Very good, emotive music

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2007-09-03 00:00:00
LOL

Hans (Zimmer) didn't make the music for the first Shrek film. Harry Gregson-Williams have been the composer for all three films (toghether with John Powell on the first one).

Without Hans compositions shrek wouldnt be what it is, everyone remembers the music from shrek.

i think he is a tremendous composer. Shrek had brilliant music in it.
