Lorne has nothing to do with interstellarGITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere
I think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.
Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*

Dakota, Gore just performed the guitar on that track, he didn't write anything... That cue is all HZ... ;)

And if you are curious about the Badelt / Neely themes from POTC 1 :

In "Singapore", Klaus's theme appears between 2:03 & 2:08.

The same theme appears in "I Don't Think Know Is The Best Time" between 1:55 & 2:11 and between 6:16 & 6:27.

As for Blake's theme, it appears in "I See Dead People In Boats" between 5:22 & 5:28.

All other themes you might recognize from Pirates 1 are HZ.

No one can beat me with the POTCs ! :P

Thanks!
Isn`t the theme in Up is Down (2:22 - 2:30) a variation on Klaus`s theme from PotC 1, too? :-)

This one has so many themes (and variations on the themes ... I think I even heard something like two themes playing on top of each other at the same time - in the beginning of "I Don`t Think Now is the Best Time") that some of them are hard to spot. :-)

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-10 00:00:00
Well the theme is not the same, but yeah, the idea is similar... :)


As for those KB / Neely themes, it's not something I guessed, it's based on actual credits... KB & Neely do get royalties for these POTC 2 & 3 tracks !! :P

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-10 00:00:00
Ah, I thought they were credited somehow secretly... :) but now I see they are on ASCAP too. Sorry .)

Hm, interesting .. I didn`t know that Blake Neely wrote the original Jack`s theme (and Gore co-composed Hoist the Colours). It`s always great to discover something new about scores I like. :-)
Especially the love theme is simply great.

And it's acceptable because the cues blend together so seamlessly.

"Although i really like that score... holy crap, 7 additional music composers? Its way too much."

It's what Zimmer does these days. Write some themes, let others do rest.

Alex Plomp,

It's from the "Hoist The Colours Suite" on the "Remixed & Unreleased" disc (track 6, disc 4) on the Soundtrack Treasures Collection set

I have recently bought this CD.
Later, I saw this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ia4gKy9-nlw) video on Youtube, and the piece at 1:40 minutes really made a huge impression on me.

Unfortunately, that piece (where the horns play 2nd voice) of music is not on the CD (also not on track 3 'at words end').

Does anybody know where the original piece of the music is available?

Thanks

Alex

And the effect of those wailing guitars is super cool for that scene in the film!

Zimmer has said that "Parlay" was taken by Ennio morricone, so...it's all ok!!!

Badguy reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-20 00:00:00
Well, Zimmer is fan of Ennio Morricone, for that PARLAY is the same sound of ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, specially "Man with the Harmonica", but this theme is played too in NED KELLY by Klaus Badelt, but with a slowly variation... Listen it with more attention... why take sounds of another composers?? I wanna listen some more original... but, Zimmer has his moments of glory, yes sir!

So by the first movie, it was a simple melody to remain in a non-musician human's mind; now it has become a concerto. Incredible, excellent composition; I suggest put the movie aside and enjoy the music for this is absolutely more than a soundtrack.
