Could you repeat that, but in legible English this time?Yes, but usually Hans hires people with similar styles to his, or promising new composers. Paesano fits the former fairly well in a lot of ways. I'm just saying it's surprising to me that he's never worked here."RCP" is not a "style", it's a place...Kind of shocking to me that John Paesano isn't a member of RCP. Marvel's Spider-Man is basically a more consistent version of this score in many ways with a touch of Danny Elfman's Spider-Man elements.so glad to see HZ back to the superhero genre
so great to watch this new interview. it confirmed how i felt about wonder woman and widows. it is the right thing to do.<br><br>Hans's comment on losing his voice took me by surprise though. dunkirk touched on a few techniques i wanted to see explored more. i know other composers did it before. but i think dunkirk did a better job at putting those elements together... hopefully there is be a similar movie in the near future : )Steve is clearly spending time with his family. He had a second child just a few months ago. I think he will eventually be back on the Bay Train. <br><br>And Lorne is the right choice for a "replacement". He's been involved in one way or another with the Bay movies for more than 10 years now. He's certainly not a surprising choice and I'm looking forward to the score. It's a movie that takes place all over the world, so I have big expectations for the music.Hans says he worked so hard to get WW1 to Rupert, but didn't he also recommend that they try a female composer?Balfe has constantly been brought in on Transformers movies , so great to see him working with Bay properlyApparently we’re in the wrong country :( If I could afford it, I’d travel just to experience this.
Lorne is now listed on IMDB and Wiki as the composer of 'Six Underground'. Clearly Bay likes working with him. Good for Lorne.You're absolutely right. Play's over. Exit's that way. On your feet. Go!<br><br>Good knowing you.Steve is just trying to spend a little time with his family i think, he's not as busy as he used to be but i think it's cause he chooses that. Film Composing is an insanely time consuming job. I like Balfe a lot though.Huh. I like Jablosnky, but I really liked the 13 Hours score, so it's hard for me to complain.Maybe, Bay thinks Balfe is better than Jablonsky in terms of military tones and music.
Balfe is doing Michael Bays next movie !!! What’s happened with Jablonsky?Review widows: It's also scored by Hans Zimmer, which means it is immediately in the running for best score of the year...Blah Blah Blah...<br><br>Play's over, Shakespeare.Meta is right though...Hope it gets fixed, I love listening to the suites you add to scores here.

I have this bad feeling that Trevor might be done scoring movies.

Yes, yes, I know he's touring and for the last few years he's been focused on his "other" musical side, but I don't think we will see him doing big movies from now on. And that's a scary thought for a longtime Rabin fan like myself. I mean, a few years back Bruckheimer's 12 Strong would most likely have been a Rabin score. But now the young guns like Lorne are taking over. I don't mind it, but I still miss the Rabin sound.


I really, really hope for at least one more substantial Rabin score. For a substantial, big-budget movie.


rockhound2018-05-11 18:14:18
i also miss trevors sound in films. always loved the rabin/bruckheimer combo. maybe he will be back for Gemini Man in 2019 or at least for the next Bad Boys movie. i really hope, that trevor didn't already retire.


Bayhem2018-05-11 21:02:43
maybe he will be back for Gemini Man in 2019 or at least for the next Bad Boys movie
================================

Gemini Man would be a great project for Trevor. But.....it is an Ang Lee movie, which means he will most likely get Mychael Danna. Yes, it's also a Bruckheimer production, but when he works with established directors like Ang Lee, Jerry tends to let them pick their own crew members. He's not running the show like he does it on Con Air and Gone in 60 Seconds.

The good news is that there's enough time for all parties to work things out for Bad Boys 3. Now, I know some Bad Boys fans weren't happy with the score for BB2 (personally, I love the score), but it would be nice to have a proper continuation of the sound from BB2. And frankly, it would simply be nice to hear another badass Rabin action score. I really hope Jerry asks Trevor to do it. Just to make sure, I will go to Jerry's Instagram and I will tell him to do it! lol.

@Hybrid, there is a TV movie called Max-Q produced by Jerry Bruckheimer with music from Nick Glennie-Smith. The Dirty Pictures Promo has 4 tracks. They are very good, in the stylish of Armageddon. Nick is fantastic.

Bayhem reply Replies: 10 || 2017-08-02 20:35:44
I always thought that this score was just influenced by Hans. But now I see that he actually worked on it, which kinda surprised me because for years I was under the impression that this was a Rabin/Gregson baby. And Steve also did some work on it. It's crazy, this score combines the talents of my favorite composers. If I'm not mistaken it's also the only time Zimmer shares a credit with Rabin...


rockhound2017-08-02 22:16:24
rabin and zimmer worked also together on Days of Thunder. Rabin played the guitar on The Last Note Of Freedom and if i remember correctly, rabin also said in an interview that he played some guitar parts on the score. but im not sure about that.


bro2017-08-02 22:37:44
Trevor also played the "Van Halen-ish" guitar parts in Twister for cues like "Going Green" and "Walk in the Woods".


Bayhem2017-08-03 14:48:10

..................................

I didn't know that. Very interesting. Rabin always says that Steven Seagal helped him get into film scoring, but I have a feeling that Zimmer (and Mancina) were also helping a lot. After all, Rabin worked on Fair Game and on Twister (as pointed out by "bro") and Days of Thunder. All movies that were made before Glimmer Man, which was the first full-blown Rabin score in Hollywood. Come to think of it, I certainly wouldn't mind seeing, or rather listening, to another Zimmer/Rabin collaboration.


rockhound2017-08-03 18:33:24
trevor came on board to Days of Thunder because of trevor horn, who produced that song. both knew each other from rabins time with YES. and if i remember correctly, mark mancina came on board to Days of Thunder because rabin. mark played keyboard on rabins L.A. live tour in 1989 and they both have also written the YES song Miracle of Life from the Union album in 1991.

and because rabin and mancina both knew each other, rabin got some work to do on mancinas scores. the first time i saw rabins name was in the Thank You credits in the SPEED score album. and when trevor scored Glimmer Man, someone of jerry bruckheimers staff recognized the music and because of that, trevor got in contact with bruckheimer. but because trevor was still new in the business, and bruckheimer wasnt sure about trevor yet, they hired mancina for Con Air. and mancina wanted trevors help, so both got the job.

the funny thing is, you can call rabin the Steven Seagal of filmmusic. both got a major credit with their first film. :D


Bayhem2017-08-03 21:37:33
Glad to see someone who knows his stufff when it comes to Rabin :) Just like me, you're obviously a fan of his. By the way, since you mentioned Trevor Horn, it got me thinking. The credit for the Coyote Ugly score went to Trevor Horn, but I clearly remember reading on the web forum a few years back that in reality it was Rabin who composed the majority of the film's themes. Yet, he's not credited anywhere. Nothing. Do you know anything about that? P.S. I still can't believe that there was never a release of the Coyoty Ugly score. Such a beautiful, sensual score.


rockhound2017-08-03 22:03:51
trevor rabin is my favourite composer, thats why i try to get as much informations as possible about him and his filmmusic work. but i also like his songs with YES, especially the TALK album and his solo stuff, especially the album Can't Look Away.

as for Coyote Ugly. trevor horn produced all the diane warren songs for this film. i guess, that is the reason he also composed the score. i think because of the many songs in the movie bruckheimer didn't want to hire one of his regulars at that time. there wasn't much score in the movie if i remember correctly.


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-03 22:28:11
And Trevor happens to be the brother-in-law of RCP's current boss, & HZ business partner, Steve Kofsky ! lol


meta2017-08-04 01:57:24

..............................................

You're right, it's not exactly a score-driven movie, but there is definitely a theme that can be heard when Violet's father talks to her in the kitchen (at the start of the movie). Then there's a slightly different version of that theme when they're at the hospital. It's a very beautiful and soft piece of music and it wouldn't be a stretch to say that it sounds very much like a Rabin music. As for Rabin's alleged involvement, it all came from the FilmScoreMonthly message boards. It was there when I first read that he was involved. They even said that on this very site (HZ.com) Rabin was listed as the composer of the theme, with Horn as the official composer (the page is no longer available though). Not only that, but I just saw that on the Soundtrack Collector page for Coyote Ugly Rabin is credited as the composer. Could be a mistake because they're both Trevor, but still, I'm inclined to believe that Rabin was involved in one way or another.

i saw that Klaus Badelt has 2 tracks from Coyote Ugly on his website. but i dont know, if it is from the actual score or just demos or rejected music.

Actually it kinda shocked me, it was a bad idea, poorly executed, they even used The Launch to parody the famous "slo-mo walk", but that part was actually scored in Arma with the HGW cue right before !! lol

heres hoping that the man of steel theme sounds something like 6:27 of the launch, that bit would fit superman flying so damn well maybe with a bit of chorus!

Scorefan reply Replies: 5 || 2012-11-11 06:08:22
Armageddon is one of the best action scores in many years but also this version is just expanded because there are two missing cues: The complete part of the mir evacuation and death (like 5 minuts) and the film version of the evacuation when the ship leaves the asteroid and harry blow up the bomb
that's the two part missing scores
I hope some day, maybe La-La-Land or Intrada release the complete score recording sessions with those music parts


Mr Tweedy2012-11-11 11:29:56
Scorefan, you're half right half wrong...
Yes, there are a few cues missing, for sure. But these aren't the ones you mention. Mir Evacuation & Death is a mash up of the original Death of Mir cues, with some edited parts of Secondary Protocol and Meteor Shower thrown into the mix. It's not unreleased music, it's previously released music edited in a different way.
The Evacuation of the Asteroid is mostly Rabin's cue Evacuation, with Harry Gregson-Williams'insert "Evacuation 2" replacing the middle portion. Again, nothing new here.

But, you might have noticed that the Asteroid 4-notes theme from "Asteroid Chase" appears a few times in the film, with various arrangements (replacing a portion of "Top Secret" or "AJ's Return" for exemple) and the cue "Fallen Comrades" has a longer opening in the movie.
For sure these are only minor cues, and I'd be quite happy to get them, but the 2CD "expanded score", as we know it, is really awesome as it is !


Scorefan2012-11-12 06:47:45
@Mr Tweedy of course, yes i have the version, but also, i want to hear those film mixing versions. I hope, in the future, La La Land Records develop Armageddon, The Peacemaker, Crimson Tide, The Rock and yes, The Lion King


Trent Easton Navarro2012-11-12 22:07:52
If The Lion King will be released, it will be by Intrada. They have a deal with Disney (also hoping we'll see a release for Jerry Goldsmith's Mulan)

Second Armageddon and The Peacemaker. Those two deserve an official complete release.

As for Crimson Tide and The Rock, both original releases are fine for me (not that wouldn't buy an expanded version though :P)


Scorefan2012-11-14 20:05:36
@Trent Easton Navarro
well, i hope those will have an official release, just like La La Land made with Broken Arrow and Black Rain, also with more of Remote Control Scores, just like Days Of Thunder and Backdraft


Trent Easton Navarro2012-11-17 18:56:27
Yeah, I loved their releases for Broken Arrow and Black Rain, as well as Speed and Speed 2: Cruise Control.

Official releases for Days of Thunder and Backdraft would also be great. As well as Bird on a Wire

Trev´s Fan reply Replies: 0 || 2011-10-07 09:44:20
In 1998, you scored "Armageddon" which was a rather great hit, at the time. Characterised by many as an Epic Symphonic Score, blend with a distinct Rock spirit and tone, by having the guitar on a basic and principal role. How did you become involved in that project and of course, is there something particular you remember off these sessions?

Although I had recently done "Con Air" for Jerry Bruckheimer, he was concerned that I didn't have enough experience to take on a film the size of "Armageddon". So I had to basically write the main themes before I was hired. I think Jerry had showed a lot of courage hiring someone with very little experience. Luckily, I had the themes by the time I started which made the project a little easier...but it was a gruelling project

Tell us about the score, your inspiration on writing the beautiful love theme and the dense action pieces. Which is your favourite sequence, both in the movie and score?

I was very happy with the main theme which I used for anthemic moments, romantic moments, and others. It is very rewarding when a theme is so easily adapted to different emotions.


In that film you worked with Harry Gregson Williams and also other composers from the Media Ventures studios. Later on, you also worked with Harry on “Enemy of the State”. Due to these facts, completed by a tight relationship with the studio, a lot of people thought that you were also part of the Media Ventures Studios. Please Trevor, tell us the real story behind this, the making process of “Armageddon” and “Enemy of the State”. You know, a lot of people still think you´re part of that team!

My studio is quite far from Jerry Bruckheimer´s offices, so after "Con Air" he requested that I find a studio nearer him to compose "Armageddon". Media Ventures was near Jerry , and had a great room available, so I hired the room for "Armageddon". There was a lot of music on the movie and I had great help from Harry Gregson-Williams, Paul Linford and Don Harper. I was in the middle of doing "Jack Frost" when Jerry Bruckheimer called me for "Enemy of the State". I was concerned about the two films overlapping so I asked Harry, and Tim Heinz to help. I wrote the themes before starting "Enemy of the State" which like "Armageddon", made it a little easier. I love what Harry did on "Enemy" and we shared credit. Hans Zimmer and I have been friends for a long time, however I have nothing to do with Media Ventures, I think they're a great company.

Jack reply Replies: 0 || 2011-09-14 12:46:47
Correct me if I'm wrong, but this one is the original complete score (maybe recording sessions... ;-)), which was used to make the version that has been around on the net. The only difference consists in different track names. For example: track 2 "Boffer reports in" corresponds to tracks 2 "Defcon 3", and so on.

And maybe that's why all the Armageddon bootlegs listed on the website have been removed: this one is the only real deal!

@ trent easton navarro
Trevor Rabin is a standalone composer. Not five additional composer needed to composed a good score. He is not one and the remote control and Armageddon only his third film works was. Bruckheimer would have it that he works with remote control. It's easy to understand!

@ /&/

No composer works alone these days, not only for the crazy dead lines, but also because of some very picky directors (like Michael Bay) who ask for rewrites all the time.
Did you see the ''additional music''-army for LOTR 1,2 and 3? Of course, they have a different function than RCP-people, but it's just a fact that no composer works alone.
Even 'legend' John Williams works with other people, but they aren't credited so they are ghost writers!
