I can't say that I am happy.  I love Marr, but I don't want Marr in Lorne's position.  #BalfeforBondJohnny Marr has been confirmed to be performing on the score...<br><br>Is there going to be a separate discussion thread for this btw?Dark Materials was anything but "a pure orchestral sound" lolIt largely has to do with the types of films he scores.Meh, you're not alone. Not a big fan of Desplat, especially when it comes to his contributions to pre-established franchises.
Track 9. Stop The Crane and 11. Burn Or Jump<br><br>Excellent.One of the most elite scores produced.I might get hate for this and Desplat might be a cool guy, but I have no idea why he gets so many Oscar nominations... please donīt kill meMan, I am actually excited to hear Balfe's score for Bad Boys for Life - the clips he's posted on his Facebook page sound awesome and like they could truly honour Mancina. The Balfe components sound epic and the Mancina integrations dynamic. What's to fear, right?  <br><br><br>I do fear that someone makes Alan Myerson to distill these 100s of performers, choral and orchestral, to make the whole score sound like an 80s casio synth again - please don't!! Balfe's had huge success with Dark Materials and Gemini Man with a pure orchestral sound - don't fuck it up, PLEASE.meh to desplat. this score needs jackman...
The "Knight March" theme is really potent. Hans should release his suites for this! I know it'll never happen, but a CD of just his original demos for his various projects would be really fun to hear.I also want to remind people that Cate Shortland is directing this film. This is a director that said James Horner destroyed the movie Avatar with his manipulative  music.<br><br>I wouldn't be surprised if most of the music is more tame without melodies. But then again, Disney is really the composer here, not Desplat.Shince, outside of the admittedly great main theme I do find Silvestri's Avengers music to be fairly forgettable...the sort of standard watered down orchestral sound that Marvel loves, not badly composed or anything but not particularly distinctive and a bit disappointing coming from a composer who in the past was capable of stuff like Judge Dredd, The Mummy Returns or Van Helsing.We never usually have the credits of Lorne's projects.  Could Hybrid get the credits of Lorne's projects?Some additional credits from the cuesheet:<br><br>Lorne Balfe, Steffen Thum<br><br>COFFEE TIME<br>NIGHT VISITORS<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Steve Davis<br><br>FIRST CONFRONTATION<br>VAN ATTACK<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Sven Faulconer<br><br>MOTORCYCLE CHASE<br>URIE TALKS TO HENRY<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Max Aruj<br><br>BUDAPEST<br>TRAIN RIDE<br><br><br>Steffen Thum<br><br>MEET JACK
But the style in Bad Boys 2 is totally different to the style in part 1. so the explanation doesn't make much sense.I have met with Tony Scott, on the filming location of Spy Game I asked him, who will compose the music for the film, he answered Hans Zimmer. :) And it landed at HGW. And Tony had worked with HGW only since then. <br>Mancina dropped out because, he wanted to do something new for the movie and didn't want to repeat himself, and MB and JB didn't like the idea, and they wanted the same music style, so MC left the project.Last time Disney hired Desplat, he ended up... not doing the score at all...Oh, shit, i forgot Valerian, such an amazing epic/space score.<br><br>TerrificThe Deathly Hallows, Valerian and Godzilla by Desplat had quite memorable melodies IMO.

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^^)
