Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there Mikeal
Typical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.
Great work, Macejko. Do you have a lossless link for this?Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.Heh, if it's anything like the 1994 score, then you'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.OST is a very horrible realise. Thanks La La Land for sharing Complete score! Score in La La Land is great!i like Rafiki theme. When Rafiki gets his old stick.
We need the complete and expanded score available to us! This includes the score playing during mufasa's entrance to rescue zazu <br><br>Anyone else with me?? Hans is a legendary genius! <3Irrelevant, there are quite a few RCP composers represented by them, for instance Geoff Zanelli, John Powell, Henry Jackman and Heitor Pereira.The movie is awesome, the score is great. Excellent work from Max and Stteffen@Hybrid, Junkie is with Kraft-Engel Agency. Is this a good or bad thing in terms of working with RCP?Soooo... Balfe is scoring the new HBO Series 'His Dark Materials'.<br><br>I'm glad that Lorne gets so much work, but I really wanted somebody else for this series.<br><br>Lorne is doing so much, that I'm afraid some things will turn out generic. Hope this doesn't happen. But we'll see (hear).<br><br>No very excited at the moment, but maybe this will change when I hear it.

Lol, the times when Hans needed less than 10 people to do a score. :D This one's a very fine soundtrack, though.


Hybrid Soldier2014-07-10 22:38:41
Why is that an issue ?

Back in the days you might have had one guy (in most cases, Nick) but he was doing the same amount ALL the additionals nowadays combined do, so where's the difference ? :)


Zimson2014-07-10 22:53:39
My comment was actually not meant to be judgemental. It's of course not an issure. I just find it interesting how things evolved over the years and I'm glad they have. ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-07-10 22:56:04
And I was no replying with any animosity... lol


Zimson2014-07-10 23:22:57
I didn't get it that way but it seems we got us both a little wrong, lol. :D It wasn't a critique on the amount of people working nowadays on his scores. I just wanted to point out how the team grew bigger along with the movies. ;)


e2014-07-11 10:23:59
This has probably been asked hundreds of times but is there anywhere where Hans himself talks about, in detail, the additional music process (not the PR crappy interviews he gives to sycophantic magazines and sites), or could you explain it Hybrid. I think the casting of it as "he writes a theme and then says 'okay guys write my score'" is a lazy analysis. I don't care who did exactly what note, I'm just interested in the process, and how involved Hans is at each step.


Zimson2014-07-11 14:52:08
As far as I know for scores like Dead Man's Chest the process is something like this: Hans writes suites inspired by the film. This often starts before the movie is even shot and he also likes to hear the story from the director rather than reading the script. This can take a few months or so. Hans worked a month on the Jack Sparrow theme for example.
After that, when film material is available Hans and his additional composers work together and score the scenes. They often sit down and discuss, sometimes also including the director and other crew members. So, basically Hans is always involved in the process and thus it's absolutely justified that he gets top credits at the end. He's like the director of the score (and also the screenwriter in some way), someone who looks at the big picture rather than the details.
On other scores like Sherlock Holmes or Inception Hans and Lorne worked more separately, as far as I know. Lorne stated in an interview that he sees in which direction Hans is going and then tries to mimic the style or capture the vibe.
Of course I can give no guarantee that this is correct, but it's how I understood it.

I'd be more curious to know how Zimmer gives his directions for the movies he doesn't even see completly (as it is the case with all the Michael Bay movies he worked on). Not a critic at all, I'm just curious.

About "The House of the Spirits", I agree, it's a very fine score. I especially love the two last minutes or so of "Clara"

You are the best composer ever; I just love your music. I purchased several of your soundtracks and stored them on my iPod. Unfortunately, the soundtrack from “The house of the spirits” was not available. If I don’t ask too much, please advise where from can I purchase the soundtracks that iTunes are missing.
Keep up the fantastic good work. Your music is balsam to the soul.
