Season 2 premieres in 2 weeks, if he was scoring he would be working on it at the moment. But yes no confirmation regarding his return or a new composer. No news regarding new composer might be a hint whether Djawadi is returning or not.I only listened to the first couple of cues so it is too early to form an opinion comparing it to JNH but I disagree the first half drags. Maybe because I love tender themes.I suspect that the release was just what they had originally planned, with a couple of bonus tracks thrown in to appease Fox. They likely didn't put too much thought in what they added, since people who have spoken with Lorne said he wasn't aware of the release and was surprised Prayer wasn't on it. I'm just glad anything got released at all after everything that has gone before.<br><br>Regarding that theme you mentioned, is it one that sounded like the personal motif Ethan has in M:I Fallout? Because while I did initially assume that was Balfe too, it seems it was actually Richter. Haven't gotten to hear Lorne's parts yet, so who knows he if he also did a similar thing.It’s not included and I’m very confused. I think there’s a good amount of unused tracks or the way the score was used was so terrible that only few tracks were memorable to me. <br><br>There’s a theme that plays during two tragic moments - I thought it was “Prayer” but it isn’t. I think it’s by Lorne as it’s closer to the direction he took. <br><br>I wish they gave us more Balfe :(I know this is probably the wrong place for it but I'd love if Hnas would one day release a CD of just his demo sketches and suites. I find hearing the original intentions/ideas even when rough really fascinating.
11.22.19Yeah lol one way or another... :P21. Hello, Beastie! (3:42)<br><br>Geoff Zanelli will be haunted by the specter of the PotC franchise until the day he dies, lolAfter listening to the whole thing, I can say that, while not as great as Newton Howard, Zanelli did a great job in here, adapting the original themes as well as creating some new ones.<br><br>The first half of the album drags a bit, but the second half is really fantastic!Is a CD release being planned?<br><br>If so, when is it coming out?
zimmer said once, that he was very satisfied of how his music was presented in the ost and that it would let the music speak in that way as he wanted to be heard, and that there aren't much of importing cues that should have been added or released. <br><br>but i guess he hasn't recognized how much love his score have gotten over the years, until his first world tour. there has been a huge demand and loud screaming after the tracklist of his show had  been released and there was no sign of last samurai. people complained and asked (esp. through this site) for a cue of Last Samurai to be played in their show, but it the developement of the show was already at its end and so he hadn't the chance to include a cue of it aswell. but atleast he recognized how much people are loving that score and respect his work on it. maybe that has changed his mind and view to the score and a propper and complete release of the score...@Hybrid Soldier, out of curiosity, why is the Last Samurai have conditions? A better way to ask is, what is the backstory with it what seems to cause reservations for Hans? Thanks!Really fantastic writing here, definitely taking inspiration from JNH’s style without trying to copy. And the adaptation of Maleficent’s “curse” theme from the first score in “The Phoenix” is definitely a highlight.No idea, and Last Samurai is not a no-go from Hans. It might have been under certain circumstances in the past but last time I asked him he was open for it (under some conditions, obviously).@Hybrid Soldier: Do you know if there is any chance LLL would take this as a candidate for a propper release? Or is it a no-go for Zimmer like with Last Samurai?
I think prayer is private video from Lorne Balfe's YouTube Channel. Also, there have prayer video still here by YouTube Search by another channel posted the videoCan anyone confirm if "Prayer" is on the OST? Since the video has been deleted, I'm not sure if anyone has a saved copy to check.I would buy a copy of an official release of this score. The Jablonsky variations is one of my favorite HZ tracks.Just listened to the first track, "Mistress of Evil", and Zanelli kept some of the themes from James Newton Howard!<br><br>I'm so happy about this and if the rest score is like this, it could be one of the scores of the year.<br><br>Really excited about the full thing!From what i hearing from the samples, it seems Zanelli make a great score.

There’s a theme that plays during two tragic moments - I thought it was “Prayer” but it isn’t. I think it’s by Lorne as it’s closer to the direction he took.

I wish they gave us more Balfe :(

I'm just glad anything got released at all after everything that has gone before.

Regarding that theme you mentioned, is it one that sounded like the personal motif Ethan has in M:I Fallout? Because while I did initially assume that was Balfe too, it seems it was actually Richter. Haven't gotten to hear Lorne's parts yet, so who knows he if he also did a similar thing.

why max richter and lorne balfe in one single album? because we talked about it previously, that they are supposed to be released separately.And what's wrong with the "20. tuesday", 21:07, that long?

Tuesday is taken from Max Richter's album Three Worlds, and the vocals that were in it originally were removed.

So I just came out after seeing the film for the second time and I enjoyed it much more this time. Now, I missed about five minutes but here are some observations about the score and the main themes:

-There’s a theme that starts on pulsating synths and long sweeping strings and it’s probably my favorite part of the score. It plays during most of the emotional scenes (father and sun). Most likely to be Richter’s.
It is included in the end credits suite.

-A very grand brass theme plays at least two or three times + an interpretation at a very important scene at the end. Probably Balfe’s.

-A sparkly piano theme - plays during the moon sequence and another scene. I think it’s Richter’s.

The rest is... unmemorable.

-“To The Stars” which plays right before Mars and at Neptune.

-“Prayer” by Balfe was used twice.

The rest is

I can't wait to hear the soundtrack soon!!


Der Profl2019-10-03 02:02:59
I've seen the movie an hour ago and I have to say that the soundtrack sounded really much like Lornes score for Geostorm. But I wasn't disappointed or anything, I really liked it and looking forward to the soundtrack release. Does anyon know when it will happen?


MrZimmerFan2019-10-03 11:58:26
@Der Profl: Presumably, same day as the movie opens


Der Profl2019-10-03 22:32:45
@MrZimmerFan: So tomorrow? Or when does it open in theaters in the US?


MrZimmerFan2019-10-04 10:33:25
@Der Profl: Digital release expected 11th October (same day as the movie), CD at 17th October.


Der Profl2019-10-04 13:54:04
@MrZimmerFan: Ah, okay. I was a bit confused, because the movie has opened 3rd October in Germany.

The digital releases (many of them actually) comes the same day of the oening of the movie

Does someone know somthing about why Lorne deleted Prayer? Or can give a reasonable explanation? I'm not that into the whole world behind releasing soundtracks and so, so I would love to hear, why it is that way right now.

To The Stars from Max Richter reminds me a mix from The coral atoll/journey to the line from Zimmer and Sunshine from John Murphy

Maxime Jean reply Replies: 1 || 2019-10-03 00:44:23
Just seen the movie, beautiful and poetic, like 2049 in a way, same type of slow storytelling with gorgeous visuals, and interesting questions about humanity... good SF movies.
Lorne is actually credited for additional score, Richter for the "main" music and... you do ear the difference, mainly orchestral for Richter and the synths stuff for Lorne I guess. The score is very soothing, mainly slow strings or pads, but nothing really noticeable, I don't feel the music helped to tell the story, but was nice though.


Der Profl2019-10-03 02:01:24
Hahaha. That's funny. I thought it was mainly the other way around: Richter was synthy stuff und Lorne the other with the exception for the leitmotif "To The Stars" I guess. Maybe it's because I heard so many synths in Richters Scores for other movies which sounded like the ones from Ad Astra, but I'm no expert.

So. I'm really looking forward to the soundtrack release. Then we have the certainty (is it spelled that way?) for which track is from whom. (Oh God, my English, sorry...)

Finally! The SIX UNDERGROUND trailer comes out in a few hours. According to Mike Bay himself. Can't wait! Balfe and Bay are a good team and the last time they worked together we got the powerful 13 HOURS score.

I really have high hopes for SIX UNDERGROUND.

Any news on the score, folks? Anything on Lorne's social media? (I'm asking because I'm not on Twitter and Facebook).


Jean-Luc2019-10-01 16:07:03
Netflix released six underground trailer today! It's an amazing trailer!!


mpolonest123 2019-10-01 17:28:25
Can’t believe this is going straight to Netflix hahaha

For me personally Mike Bay is one of those directors whose films I either really like (The Rock, Armageddon, TF1, Bad Boys, Pain and Gain) or outright dislike (TF2-5, Pearl Harbor, Bad Boys 2). The trailer looks hella fun though, so I’m definitely on board for this.

Hopefully Lorne Balfe gets to go all out with the music here, with Bay I’m sure he’ll get the chance...


MrZimmerFan2019-10-01 18:30:40
Bad Boys 2 is the pinnacle of Bay's action and craziness

And i f***ng love it!


mpolonest123 2019-10-01 20:02:09
@MrZimmerFan
To be fair it’s been a bit since I’ve last seen BB2, so I’ll definitely give it another go. I just remember being so worn out by the last third of the film, which is just one long action set-piece with Bay’s machine gun editing.


Ds2019-10-01 21:09:42
@MrZimmerFan: exactly, Bad Boys 2 is basically "Michael Bay: A Summary". Over the top, borderline humor, no shit given, lengthy AND funny AND thrilling action sequences (yes that's possible to combine all 3, despite what Kevin Feige has to say about that). And a visual masterclass, the way each shot is framed is a delight for the eyes. And from that perspective, Six Underground looks breathtaking.

Now... 2,5 months to wait :-p

Has anyone heard anything about a soundtrack for Ad Astra? I didn't like the movie much from the story persepctive, but the imegary und music created an immersive experience. Even if Lornes music will be released in a GITS kind of way, will there be the Max Richter soundtrack for the movie? I know that it is the wrong place to ask here, but maybe somebody knows something.


Bast2019-09-25 10:17:39
Hi, Max Richter released a single with the song "To the stars". You can find it on youtube and on every music streaming platform.


MrZimmerFan2019-09-25 11:53:11
Deustche Grammophon will release the soundtrack, my bet is only Max Ritcher

@MrZimmerFan source?


Der Profl2019-09-26 23:10:05
@Bast Thank you. I found it some days before.

@MrZimmerFan I've heard that too and yes, my bet was only Max Richter as well, but then I found this post on Balfes Twitter in which he states that there will be a soundtrack release. (@Paul Yeah, that's the source I guess.) Why would he say, that a soundtrack is coming if there won't be his tracks on it? But we have to see, I guess.

Stargazer_21 reply Replies: 6 || 2019-09-22 05:54:03
Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)
I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)
Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.


Michael Fields2019-09-22 18:18:12
As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.

Hope so. Will see the movie this thursday.


Mr.Unbreakable2019-09-26 02:57:30
You will like his music more or less but at least he doesn't leave anyone indifferent, or you love him or hate him. I love Balfe, he is tremendously skilled and I think that if they gave him more stable and more author jobs, he would develop better music.


Edmund Meinerts2019-09-26 11:00:55
That's not true at all. I'm pretty much indifferent to Balfe. :p


MrZimmerFan2019-09-26 11:26:36
Balfe, for me, is 'Mr. Average', have a good scores (Genius, for example) even entertaing ones (Geostorm o Terminator Genisys), but for the most part, is average as hell.


Edmund Meinerts2019-09-26 22:28:24
That's how I'd define him as well. Prolific and competent.

Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.

I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.
