Back in 2003/2004 some guy made his own fan-made "expanded score". <br>Some tracks were actually OST tracks looped, with some drums added in the mix, some were from an unknown source. I only remember some badly-mixed synth cues that sounded like home-made, experimental material.would love to help out, but the video/track is blocked :/Think about Gemini Man, the score come out the same day as the movie (in that case, 11th October), and the details come the same week.<br><br>We'll likely get final details towards the end of the week or early next week. I guess I'm just a little surprised that it's taken this long. The movie had surprise screenings either yesterday or the day before, so it seems like everything's pretty final.Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)<br><br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.<br><br>https://youtu.be/etkri6OKLpE
There is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.<br><br>https://youtu.be/DbENmej_cH0But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :PThanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.
And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the scoreTom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>
I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.Aplusle, that's really well put actually.Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)

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

Alex Plomp reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-08 00:00:00
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.
