I wouldn't say "Battlefield" sounds nothing like Steve, it is pretty in line with his TF style, but yeah, I definitely see the Lorne involvement in there. Interesting though, our first official additional composer credit on this score!John Powell would be an amazing choice, if only to get him more mainstream exposure. <br><br>The thing is, if you strip away the drums, sound design, and harsh-mixing Tom is a actually a pretty gifted “classical” composer imo. His string writing has always impressed me, and seeing his use of woodwinds in Alita definitely proved that he can write outside of the mold Hollywood had put him in post-Mad Max.<br><br>Avatar 2 is most likely going to need a pretty diverse score, if the first one is any indicator. James Horner combined traditional orchestra, tribal drums, ethnic elements, electronics, and masculine action writing. All of which I could see Tom doing quite well.Chrono order goes like this :<br><br>Dublin 1996<br>Driving<br>Deceit<br>Second Warning<br>First Warning<br>Research<br>Conversations<br>The Beating<br>Traynor Lies<br>Never Show Your Fear<br>Preparations<br>The Killing<br>Bad News<br>The Funeral<br>One More Day<br><br>But some tracks have cues edited together, and some titles are not exactly perfect lol...Atli is fine in Iceland, maybe he just doesn't want to look for trouble anymore... :)Lorne did work on this score. At the very end, when the film (and therefore, the score) was getting butchered by editors to shorten it, there was very little time to rework the score to adapt it to the new cut. So Steve called Lorne for help, who agreed but asked not to be credited (his team was, so it kinda defeated the purpose lol)... They didn't do THAT much on the score, but Battlefield is indeed a LB cue (it sounds nothing like SJ).<br><br>Not the first time this happened. Lorne extensively worked on TF1 & 2 (credited), but also helped (uncredited) on TF3 (there again, his assistant back then Andrew K. was credited).
Alright, that's ^^ a bit too far, but I agree that there's not enough evidence to really support the theory. The only compositions that seem like Balfe might have had a hand in are the various reprises of "Bumblebee" (aka the Journey theme) that was always rumored to be co-composed by Balfe, and the big choral section in "Your Voice" when the knights begin attacking Optimus, as that is also a progression I associate heavily with Balfe's involvement in the first 2 scores. But that's still not enough to prove that he was involved.<br><br>By the way Bayhem, I don't believe that John Williams or Howard Shore have lied about doing their work by themselves. John Williams has worked with William Ross and probably others, but I don't think they're lying when they say they've done a score themselves. They seem like they can compose on their own just fine.Yep, if "deserving" existed, Atli would've gotten many more movies than he currently does.Anyone know of a proper chronological listing of this score? I tried cross-referencing it with the expanded listed here and made this:<br><br>01 Dublin, 1996<br>02 <br>03 <br>04 <br>05 Second Warning<br>06 Research<br>07 Driving<br>08 The Beating<br>09 Traynor Lies<br>10 Never Show Your Fear<br>11 Preparations<br>12 The Killing<br>13 Bad News<br>14 The Funeral<br>15 One More Day<br><br>But I have no idea where Conversations, First Warning, and Deceit goes, and I'm not sure if Traynor Lies and Driving are placed correctlyif you read my first sentence you can see I dismisded this rumor as crap<br>..................<br><br>Fair enough....But look back on the comment itself. It's kinda confusing. The way you wrote it created the illusion that Lorne not only ghostwrote the score, but he also dismissed it as crap. You didn't say "I dismissed the rumor". You said: "...a rumor stating that Lorne Balfe ghostwrote this score and dismissed it as crap." <br> <br><br>Anyway, moving on.....<br><br>Steve was interviewed a lot about The Last Knight and it's pretty obvious that he worked hard on that score. From the day they started shooting the movie. Was he supported by other composers? Absolutely. You can't score such a huge movie by yourself. Any composer who claims that is lying.<br><br>So there's nothing shocking or surprising about the fact that other composers were involved here. As for them being "Lorne's people"......well, considering how MV/RC-related composers work and how interconnected everything is, the "Lorne guys" could very well be friends with Steve too and perhaps he simply brought them on board. Or they were recommended by Lorne. It certainly doesn't mean that there was this top secret plan of them and Lorne actually ghostwriting the entire score. I still wonder tho......how do these rumors even come up? Who spreads them? And why? I ask because this is not the first time I've heard rumors about Zimmer scores and Jablonsky scores. It's always these two guys. Which happen to be two of the most prominent and popular MV/RC guys. Coincidence? Not to sound like a conspiracy nut, but it kinda makes me think that someone is intentionally trying to undermine the biggest MV/RC names by constantly throwing shade at their work."Deserving" is a word that doesn't exist in Hollywood, so stop thinking that way... lol
The problem I have with Junkie XL scoring Avatar is just that there are so many RCP composers better or more deserving. You have Zimmer, Powell, Gregson-Williams, Mancina, Jackman, Wallfisch...it is just so wrong to think Junkie XL is scoring Avatar and none of those guys are.I think that Tim Miller played a greater role in case of Terminator and Sonic. And I really don't see Junkie as good choice for Avatar 2.@Edmund <br>I still stand by my opinion that Holkenborg scoring Avatar 2 could be pretty interesting. Pairing him up with a director who is known to be strict with his musical choices and continuing on from James Horner’s classic might produce something really good. And seeing his gradual progress as a composer with Mortal Engines and Alita have personally given me some hope (2 years ago I would have said hell no).<br><br>And I’m not surprised by the choice for T6. Not looking forward to this project at all but we did get a cool score from Balfe for the last one so maybe there is some hope for the music at least.I think Terminator is a decent match for JXL's talents (listen to "The March" from Divergent), but this feels like further evidence that James Cameron is grooming him for Avatar 2, which I really hope ends up not being the case.Yes, Tom will be scoring the new Terminator movie
Chill out Bayhem, if you read my first sentence you can see I dismisded this rumor as crap.<br>But seeing people from his team ivolved and considering the fast and furious situation, I can’t help but wondering if there’s some truth to that rumor.<br>Now for a guy talking about haters, saying that Lorne scores 36million projects and B movies (forgetting mission impossible) I think you’re pushing it a bit.<br>Anyway no hate I don’t care who wrote it I’m just curious about the behind the scenes stuff.You're reaching there a bit Bayhem, I see no one in this thread trying to undermine Steve's work or the score. Hell the first poster was just asking if Lorne worked on it and if so, to what extent. And the "rumor comment" is a logical extension of Lorne's whole regular team being credited on the score, therefore it is possible that he did additional work on it.Again a "rumor" comment that's trying to undermine Steve's work. And in this case, an entire score. Lorne fans, please stop trying to constantly undermine other composers in favor of your guy. It's childish and extremely disrespectful. You've done it multiple times on these boards. What's next? You gonna claim that Lorne secretly scored the entire Transformers franchise? And Lord of the Rings. And Harry Potter. <br><br>Seriously, it's getting really old, really fast. <br><br>Not to mention the fact that Steve, as a composer, is much, much more experienced and established than Lorne. He's got nothing to prove. Steve takes his time when it comes to scoring. He's choosing carefully. He's got more than enough time to focus on his projects. While Lorne's name is attached to 30 million different projects, some of them cheap B-movies like Hurricane Heist. And you think he's scoring them all by himself? The irony of it all is that if anyone is using ghostwriters most of the time, it's Lorne. Not Steve. And I'm saying that as a Lorne fan as well. I'm not just a Jablonsky fan. I appreciate Lorne's work as well. But I'm not undermining other composers in favor of him.Bay has Lorne scoring his films now cause they established a relationship on 13 Hours, and Bay didn't even want Lorne for that; he wanted Hans but he didn't want to go through the exhausting process of another Bay blockbuster so he brought in Lorne instead.<br>And even then, Hans still worked together with Lorne very closely on the project (Hybrid said he was there for all the meetings, helped with synth programming, etc)Of cause Balfe worked on it .That is why Bay now uses Balfe

Is there any right tracklist from the recording sessions???

Mike reply Replies: 4 || 2014-01-05 22:17:47
Was this score similar to Rush (a band score where everyone writes everything) or is it indeed mostly Zimmer? It's older, and his older scores tend to be more traditional in the crediting area. :P


Marc2014-01-06 02:36:53
Nope, Heitor Pereira & Jeff Rona did write themes here. I see no bands, except the VA songs.


Magnus Rex2014-01-06 04:21:30
You misunderstand what Mike meant; I believe he is at least partly right, some of the music was scored like a jam session, where music was improvised that later became honed into the score. Mike didn't mean actual bands did music for the film.


Mr Tweedy2014-01-06 13:15:59
That's right... They were like a band jamming in the studio. The music was recorded and some of it ended up in the film, usually re-arranged depending on each sequence's needs.
But basically, HZ wrote the main themes (Still, Vale of Plenty, Tribal War, Leave No Man Behind) but it was all played and arranged by the band itself during the jamming sessions or later.
Some cues are credited to other musicians (Pereira for Mogadishu Blues, Rona for Bakara, Wesson for the ambient part from Chant...). "Ashes to Ashes" starts with some kind of improvisation on the electric cello by Martin Tillman, then the band starts to play all together.

There's a lot of unused / additional music that never ended up in the film.


Mike2014-01-06 21:35:10
Thank you, Mr. Tweedy.

I'm really curious as who wrote "Hunger" ;P


Mike2013-11-10 03:30:44
I'm curious who did what in this entire score. I imagine off the bat that Zimmer did "Leave No Man Behind" and "Tribal War", but wasn't this score basically a bunch of jam sessions?


MacArthur2013-11-10 17:35:44
I think hunger is Zimmer isn't it?


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 18:02:09
MacArthur, unless you're willing to substantiate that claim, all anyone is going to read is "I HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT ANYTHING" on a post with your name on it.


MacArthur2013-11-10 21:17:21
My question is why wouldn't it be? let's just put it that way.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 21:48:02
There's no reason why it wouldn't be...just like there's no reason why it would. My point is, if you don't have anything more than an "I think," without any reasoning or argument to back it up, then you're contributing jack shit to the discussion. It's like the internet version of talking because you like the sound of your own voice.

When Hybrid says a cue is by a certain composer, we listen because he has access to information we don't have. With you it's just random gut feelings and opinions without any convincing substance behind it whatsoever. Hence, why should we listen to you?


MacArthur2013-11-10 22:01:55
When did Hybrid say that it wasn't Zimmer. I didn't go against what he said If he says it, it's fine with me.

Does it say anything about Hunger being by a different Composer?


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 22:25:08
There's four additional music guys up there, so there is absolutely ZERO guarantee that the cue is by Zimmer alone. Similarly, there is ZERO guarantee that the cue ISN'T by Zimmer alone. Until we know more for sure, there is also ZERO point in slinging your "I thinks" around.


MacArthur2013-11-10 23:17:27
Yeah That I know but the guy on top seem to say that Zimmer didn't have a hand in it at all.

That's what baffled me I wasn't trying to throw in my opinion on it.

Combination of OST, songs used in the movie, music from the DVD bonus and some promotional cues from the musicians of the score... Everything is edited/chopped so that it looks "new", but, it's definitely fanmade.
