Richter is a conceptual artist, I love his Leftovers score, but come one, scoring to picture ?<br><br>He writes pieces that are used in scenes, not the other way around...<br><br>Richter scoring a moon buggy chase ? Hell no... lol you could see from day one it was gonna be replaced...^ Yeah the edit floating around matches Felix’s almost to a T. Only major difference is <br><br>“Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale”<br><br>Which is broken up into four separate cues. Realistically you could edit it anyway you want if you prefer the smaller cues. Personally, I like the long suite-like format of this release. Kinda like the album release for “Event Horizon” lol.I hope they at least release Richter's score.My Edit:<br><br>01. Rise Of An Empire - Marathon - King Darius - Artemisia - Man To God - War (13:36)<br>= <br><br>M1A Rise of An Empire (09:48)<br>M1B From Man to God King (03:44)<br><br>02. Greek Council - Persian War Plan - Spartan Fight Training - Greek Conversation - Your Commander Is Greek (10:47) <br>=<br><br>M2 Greek Council (03:39)<br>M3 Greek Conversation (07:06)<br><br>05. Suicide - General Bandari - Circle Battle (7:30) <br>=<br><br>M6 Suicide/General Bandari (02:10)<br>M7 Circle Battle (05:16)<br><br>06. Sex - Fire Battle (12:04) <br>=<br><br>M10 Sex (05:36)<br>M11 Fire Battle (06:21)<br><br>11. Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale (16:08) <br>=<br><br>M15-17A Our Final Stand/Showdown Pt.1 (08:19)<br>M17B-19 Showdown Pt.2/Finale (07:37)I'm not really interested in Balfe's part of work, but it would be a big disappointment if Richter's work wouldn't released.<br><br>But I think there's a good chance that movie (and music in particular) get an Oscar nominations, so let's just hope for the best.
@mpolonest123 any idea how to break up the really long cues on the complete? it’s a lot of tracks that are made up of several cuesArtemisia Suite = History of Artemisia <br>Greek Action Suite = Marathon <br>Xerxes Rebirth Suite = From Man to God King<br>Greek Sacrifice Suite = ???<br>Artemisia’s Childhood Suite = Artemisia’s Childhood<br>Greek Attack Suite = Greeks on Attack<br>Queen Gorgo Suite = Queen Gorgo<br>Xerxes Thoughts Suite = Xerxes Thoughts<br>Greek History Suite = History of the Greeks<br>Greek Victory Suite = Greeks Are Winning<br><br>Hope this helps! :-)Hybrid can you tell us what album cues are the suites ?!well, from what Lorne wrote on Twitter, it should be releasedCool thanks for getting back! I am still a little bit confused though. Do any Basil Poledouris cues go somewhere in that list? It’s been a very very long time since I have seen the film.
The Hans cues used are :<br><br>1M1 OPENING CREDITS / MAIN TITLE (USED FROM 2:18 TO 3:03)<br>1M2 GOLDEN STAIRCASE (USED FROM 0:00 TO 1:56)<br>2M2 JACK SEES WOLVES<br>2M3 BLACK WOLF<br>2M6 THE TREK CONTINUES (USED FROM 0:28 TO 1:15)<br>3M1 THIN ICE<br>3M2 SKUNKER'S DEATH<br>3M3 FULL MOON WOLF ATTACK<br>3M3A MORNING WOLF ATTACK<br>6M4 THE BEAR<br>6M4A THE BEAR ATTACK<br>7M3 IN THE STABLE<br>7M5 WHITE FANG FIGHTS SATAN<br>8M1 FIGHT MONTAGE (FIRST HALF USED)<br>8M3 PIT FIGHT (FINAL 20 SEC USED)<br><br>All the rest, by definition, is Basil's score...Hey hybrid soldier! You mentioned on the ghost in the shell page about white fang so I came here! Can you give us a list of the cues as they appear in the film please? The Basil Poledouris cues and the Hans Zimmer cues pleaseI 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 Music
I 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 shell

Zanelli had two cues from TLS on his website : The Final Charge & Ninja Attack.
A while ago, Blake Neely had a cue called "Sake" on his website and, if I remember correctly, it was the beginning of OST track 3.

As always, we don't know what means those credits, did Zanelli & Neely made those cues all by themselves or did they helped Hans finishing the job ?
For exemple, Trevor Morris had a cue of TLS on his website, and he explained that this cue was all Hans, but he was asked to add some brass in the background... It's far from a "composing task" !

@Prott: Thanks for the info. I think I checked there, but it was a long time ago and I didn't know if anyone knew different. And I thought the same thing, that the part that is nearly identical to Pearl Harbor would have been collaborated with Geoff Zanelli. Oh well.

@Anonymous: I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you here. I love that part because while it sounds nearly identical it fits perfectly within the scope of the overall score and does not detract from the listening experience a bit. I agree that the album is perfect, but it's even more perfect with the full, film-version of the final charge.

was listening to the final charge today - what a horrible pearl harbor lift. It's almost identical to War in a certain section. Come on Geoff a bit of creativity please! Glad it wasn't on the album, it would ruin it as the album is such a perfect listen . . .

Brad reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-12 00:00:00
Hyrbrid, any information on this soundtrack? Which "Additional Composers" helped out on each track. Thanks.

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-12 00:00:00
According to the ASCAP, Hans wrote all the cues by himself (and I thought that - for example - Final Charge was composed by Geoff Zanelli ... at least that Pearl Harborish "charge-part" :) ).

How do I go on about asking permission to use Hans Zimmer's music for a commercial I would like to make for my book? My book is on Amazon.com and is titled, "Afghanistan through an Infantryman's Eyes" . I am a prior Combat Veteran who has served in the United States Army for 6 years as an Airborne Infantryman. I went to Afghanistan for one year and I saw what I believe is God in the love I experienced from the Afghan people, and the beauty I felt in their land. The context of my book focuses on a soldier (Myself) looking for the truth in life--well knowing that truth can be created in the hearts and minds of people, by people. The music from Hans Zimmer fits my epic journey through life as I am in search for God. May I please use Hans Zimmer's music for my commercial for my book? Thankyou.

I have been a Hans Zimmer fan for a long time but his soundtrack for The Last Samurai is, in my opinion, his greatest work ever. It is, in some respects, more beautiful and meaningful to me than the actual movie. At first when I heard the music during the film I thought "what kind of genius was able to conjure up something so heavenly?" Then I saw the credits and said "Oh. Right, of course."

This score has to be one of the most beautiful, peaceful pieces of music I've heard in a long time. I don't know where I've been not to have know who Hans Zimmerman was before, but I am definitely a fan now. Amazing music!

I would hope that someday a piano score of the Last Samurai will be released. My wife and I regard it as one of the best soundtracks ever, as well as one of the best musical compositions ever.
