Nope@HybridSoldier <br><br>Hope so. Will see the movie this thursday.Hello everyone! After watching the film I noticed that about half of music that used in film disappeared at sessions or has different arrangement. Why it's not released? What's the reason for this?As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !
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.<br><br>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.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)<br>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)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be funI love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :P
I wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.Not any more lame than the Balfe cueLorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.
He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lolSo is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?

This must be the one where HZ actually went for it - result = Zooster's breakout. Can we have more of this instead of the homogenised and silly farmed-out shit to inadequate Barfes and other nothings. Hans is such an inventive composer when he wants to be.


Balfe2018-02-27 14:09:08
Still, samples are as bad as anything and can't believe HZ was so cheap as not to get an orchestra for this!

Hello mr. Zimmer,

Can you tell me the name of the xylophone song in the movie Madagascar. This song is also played during the Genesis tour just before the starting of the concert. This was a inmens sound to listen it over a great set of speakers. I have enjoyed it at the movie and at the concert very much. It took me more than a year to put a link between the movie and the concert. This xylophone song stayed somewhere in my brain somewhere between my ears....

All the best regards,
Pieter van Vliet

How much score did this film have so that there's so many additional guys?


Frisbee2013-11-18 09:34:35
I don't think it is always a question of how much music a film needs. This usually looks more like HZ's method for introducing his colleagues, their skills and their talents to the world. I'm sure it helps these guys immeasurably to land solo scoring gigs later on. Besides, what better way to go through some uninspiring project than jamming with friends?

I just cant believe the coincidence but I happened to find this link in google when I was searching for the xylophone song. I didnt know that the instrument was called 'xylophone' in google so I typed in 'madagascar soundtrack when alex dreams of steaks' haha. Managed to hit this site in the first shot. Went through the comments and what do you know - the first 2 describe the song that I am looking for. :D Cheers guys!

Zooster's Breakout is great! It perfectly matches with the movie. But I like the this track, because even the music, without the pictures, is funny...reminds me a funny machine, a completely senseless machine, with a lot of little mechanisms and wheels. The sound creates a great atmosphere :D (btw: I'm listening to the track, while writing these lines^^)
