Most of the album is comprised of suites, with one consistent tempo per track. <br><br>The material that was scored to picture was scored using the risset rhythm technique, which gave a lot of those tracks their "infinitely getting faster" feeling in the film, so the tempo is always climbing in the film versions. The suites have a stable tempo (except for a couple normal tempo changes, which are different)Not really any... "Nothing Out There" contains the sad piano theme from Begins and Dark Knight, but otherwise the themes that get reprised are pretty much Hans stuff. <br><br>Speaking of credits, any chance the complete score page could be updated with what's out there and official?Could somebody tell me in what cues JNH's themes appear on album?Thanks MIKE, Any ideas of how can I Google it?Yeah, that cue was either a last minute rewrite or one of the music editors did it.... As for where you can find it...Google is your friend. But it's not going to be available anywhere officially.
I think it will be in between NOT ORDINARY CITIZEN / THE SLOW KNIFE and IMAGINE THE FIRE, Does anybody know where can I find it?<br>I noticed that this score doesn't has the soundtrack of the part where Blake is taking the people to the bridge and he is discusing with the other police officer before he blows the bridgeThat's right, I forgot about that... And I totally agree about the score vs. the album. I had no use for this score on album at first, but now that I've watched the movie a few times, I can really hear the logic behind the score and I "get it." <br><br>I still don't get the music as heard on album, though. Are the longer pieces some early suites Hans wrote? Or did he specifically make these arrangements for the album? Do you know the answer to that one, Hybrid?I wanna say I heard the full Cat Suite somewhere... I can't remember if it was legit, but it was 15:39 and it was indeed quite repetitive. It was basically the Selina Kyle Suite from the Z+ app, along with demos of several of the Catwoman-related cues in the final score. If you've listened through the score, you've basically heard the unreleased stuff.@Mike<br>Zimmer has said in interviews that he “mapped out” the film with one long piece of music to establish the changing tempo of the story, and apparently the script was written to capture the rhythmic feel of the film. So from the very beginning the story was always split up between the three.<br><br>I think a big part of the initial disappointment with the score was the album presentation, which gives off the impression that the music is just some sound design that Zimmer threw together (this is how I personally felt when I first gave it a listen). In actuality it’s a technically impressive score, I really can’t think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a film’s tempo and flows as one long piece of music. Apparently it was a nightmare for Hans, especially when the smallest edits to the film would ruin the flow.<br><br>Doing the 59-minute album was a pretty big disservice to the whole purpose of the music. If you remove one piece the whole thing falls apart, which is part of the reason the album feels so disjointed.
Anyone here listened "The Predator" FYC score? <br>Any chance to compare tracklist and running time with official release?These versions suites haven't been officially released, but maybe you can find them somewhere around the Internet unofficially.<br><br>As for the Cat Suite, the most important parts of it can be found in "Selina Kyle" (it's a shortened version of it actually) and "Mind if I cut in?" from the OST. I remember that Hybrid once said that the 15mins Cat Suite was too repetitive, that's why a 5min only version was released, so maybe you are just fine with those two.<br>Where can I listen to the Cat Suite? Or is it literally: Selina Kyle Theme? <br>The Mole P1 (0-1:57)<br>Regimental Brothers P1 (0-1:19)<br>The Mole P2 (1:57-3:44)<br>Regimental Brothers P3 (2:44 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier<br>Supermarine P1 (0-2:47)<br>The Mole P3 (3:45 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back (again) <br>Supermarine P2 (*5:33)<br>Impulse<br>The Tide<br>Home <br>The Oil <br>Variation 15<br>End Credits <br><br>As everyone said already, the album is made up of suites that combine several cues and several "sounds" used in various places. For example, the is a sound in The Mole (At 2:05) that sounds like a fuse being ignited. This sound is actually right after The Tide in the film.<br>The only tracks that are almost identical to the film are: The Tide, Variation 15 and End Credits, the rest is different. <br><br>So if you were to order the tracks as first heard in the film it would be: <br>The Mole <br>Regimental Brothers <br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier <br>Supermarine <br>Impluse <br>The Tide <br>Home <br>The Oil<br>Variation 15<br>End credits<br><br>As much as I enjoyed listening to this release, I wish they didn't butcher the score the way they did. I like the suites but there are so many great cues in this film that weren't released. If only they released an isolated score track on Blu-ray. Listening to film extracts is just not enough.I noticed that as well — the ticking goes all through the movie, except for the boat scenes, and only stops when they get on the train. <br><br>I wonder...could the film have originally been shot so that the beach, sea, and air sequences were there own arcs, and the longer album tracks were written for that? And then Nolan went in and turned the movie into the frenetic, constantly cutting-back-and-forth final product? <br><br>While the album is fine, I personally don't understand why we couldn't have just gotten the film cues. They might have had to stitch several together for each track, but it could have worked.
Does anyone know where you can get a digital version of the Japanese versions 2 bonus tracks?Comparing it to YFM’s sfx edit this is what I’ve got;<br><br>“The Mole” seems to be an alternate of the opening sequence. The first minute or so is used, while the rest isn’t. “We Need Our Army Back/Regimental Brothers” are both made up of several cues from different points in the film. <br>“Home” is completely different in the film, which makes me think it may have been recorded specifically for the album. Similar situation with “Oil”. <br>“Supermarine” is definitely a suite. The rest is chronological.<br><br>Interesting thing to note, it seems like a lot of the tempo changes/ticking effects/bass overlays were removed from the album release, making almost every track sound different from the actual film versions. The music in context has a constant pulse going, especially in the way cues segue into each other and change tempo.It's not really possible to chronologically order the album because the album doesn't use the same tracks as the movie. Plus, the album is more or less chronological anyway, given the areas where they are the same.<br>With the complete cue sheet out now. Does anyone know what the chronological order of the album would be?Movie credits:<br><br>Music Composed and Mixed by:<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Additional Music:<br>ANTONIO DI IORIO<br><br>Music Supervisor:<br>DAVE JORDAN<br><br>Music Editor:<br>PETER MYLES<br><br>Score Conducted by:<br>CONRAD POPE<br><br>Score Orchestrated by:<br>EDWARD TRYBEK, HENRI WILKINSON, JONATHAN BEARD, TOM HOLKENBORG<br>Score Copied by:<br>EDWARD TRYBEK, HENRI WILKINSON<br><br>Score Contracted by:<br>PETER ROTTER<br><br>Choir Contracted by:<br>JASPER RANDALL<br><br>Score Recorded by:<br>ALAN MEYERSON, BRAD HAEHNEL<br><br>Digital Recording by:<br>KEVIN GLOBERMAN<br><br>Technical Score Engineers:<br>ALEX RUGER, EMILY RICE,<br><br>Synth Programming by:<br>JACOPO TRIFONE, JONAS FRIEDMAN, MAX KARMAZYN<br><br>Score Recorded at:<br>NEWMAN RECORDING STAGE<br><br>Music Production Services by:<br>MICHIEL GROENEVELD<br><br>Score Mixed at:<br>COMPUTER HELL CABIN<br><br>Newman Stage Engineer:<br>MARC GEBAUER<br><br>Newman Recordist:<br>TIM LAUBER<br><br>Newman Stage Managers:<br>DAMON TEDESCO, PETER NELSON

was harry ever in talks to do narnia 3 or was he scrapped from the get go?


Mike2014-08-01 20:25:11
He was scrapped, and he said in an interview that it was entirely because of the new director, but that he had no hard feelings. He only did the first two because of his relationship with that Andrew Adamson, so when the director was changed, it was logical that HGW would go. He did say, though, that he would be disappointed if Andrew Adamson returned for Narnia 4 and asked for Arnold instead. ;)

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2013-10-09 22:54:34
I know Stephen Barton did Miraz Crowned, but did he also do Journey to the How ("In the Boat" on the complete score, I believe it's called)?. It starts out with a sound IDENTICAL to the beginning of All Ghillied Up in COD4.

MacArthur reply Replies: 17 || 2013-10-01 21:38:19
Kinda bummed that Gregson-Williams didn't use the cue from the Battle in the First Narnia.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-01 21:50:58
He did! Bits and pieces of it are all over the action music in Prince Caspian. Plus, why would you want him to reuse the same music?


MacArthur2013-10-01 23:16:30
I don't want him too. but too use that would just have been cool like the Raiders march use in all the Indiana Jones soundtracks.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-01 23:50:28
But the Raiders March is a theme, not an entire seven minute cue. I wouldn't want the "Desert Chase" to pop up in Last Crusade, for instance. As for themes from the first Narnia, HGW carries them over plenty.


MacArthur2013-10-02 00:02:11
Well I do know that I don't want the the Desert chase the whole time either I'm talking the cue from 0:37 too 1:17 that particular Arrangement is awesome and I would have liked to have it in the second film. But you can't always get what you want.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 00:10:02
Ah, I see. Yeah, I love that moment too. Still, overall I think Prince Caspian is a better score than the one that came before it (and after it, for that matter).


Mike2013-10-02 00:24:07
Prince Caspian for me is one of those scores where I like the album better than the full score, since the album highlights the new material. Every single time I see that movie, I feel like it suffers from a bit too much reuse/temp tracking. For example, the way they reused the "White Witch" and "Evacuating London" cues when the Pevensies enter Narnia, or the way they reused...one of the cues which I don't remember the name of...when Lucy first saw Aslan. There were other examples as well, but I would have to either listen to the score or watch the movie to remember them precisely.

Unrelated, I found it a shame that several minutes of the castle raid sequence (before the album track plays) were nowhere on the album.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 00:36:46
Yeah, I agree Mike. There's a few too many cues just tracked in from the first one...not nearly as bad as On Stranger Tides or The Dark Knight Rises, though. And the new material is good, especially some of the action music.

Good point about the first half of the castle raid sequence. Can't believe that was missing from the album compared with some of the tracked stuff they did put on. Reepicheep's little muted trumpet theme is brilliant! Ultimately I think both the complete score and the album are lacking, and the best thing is to kinda build your own album out of the best bits from the complete. ;)


MacArthur2013-10-02 00:38:39
Oh yeah Caspian Is a great score.


Mike2013-10-02 16:24:29
Edmund, are you judging TDKR off the album? Because the album is most of the reused music in the movie (sadly; awful presentation of the score). Within the film there is a lot of new material, and I'd say the reused stuff is the minority of the score.


MacArthur2013-10-02 17:41:29
I love the Dark Knight Rises Score. And I don't think it repeated music too much......Now POTC4 did.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 17:46:12
A lot of the action cues like "Batman Chased" seem like they're cobbled together from the action music in BB and TDK. But mostly my issue is with the finale ("Rise" on album) which is basically a weaker rehash of "A Dark Knight". But I've also heard the complete score and it still strikes me as though there's too much tracking in. Sure there's some new material, and it's better than On Stranger Tides (to be fair, everything's better than On Stranger Tides), but it's still a disappointment I think. The vast majority of the new material is in the suites Zimmer wrote and a lot of that stuff didn't even make the film, which makes me wonder how much Nolan is to blame as well.


Mike2013-10-02 18:01:16
I would suggest giving it another listen. The only really notable rehashes are, as you said, "Batman Chased" and "Rise". There's also "Remember Where You Parked It?" and "On Thin Ice - Batman Returns", which are rearrangements of old stuff. But if you look at the cue sheet, listen closely to the score, or just watch the movie, a good 75% of the stuff is new. Still, I think Begins was the strongest of those scores from a purely enjoyable standpoint. TDK felt very polished, but the Joker music and a lot of the other "noise" tracks made it a weak listen sometimes.

It is a shame, though, especially in the case of TDKR's "Rise", that they just regurgitated TDK's finale in weaker form. They should have used the final few minutes of the Wayne Manor suite.


Mike2013-10-02 18:04:05
EDIT: There's also "For Old Times' Sake", "Handing Over the Reactor", and "Chasing the Convoy East". As for Nolan being to blame, I'm sure that's part of it. He was initially going to temp TDK for the most part, but Hans and James insisting on writing at least SOME new themes.


MacArthur2013-10-02 18:04:46
Was there new Batman stuff in the Wayne Manor Suite.

and I thought that On thin Ice was a nice new Arrangement. It was really refreshing to me.


Mike2013-10-02 18:06:39
Give the Wayne Manor suite a listen when you have 20 min to spare, MacArthur. Many new themes in there. And btw, I'm not referring to the album track "On Thin Ice", which is indeed new. I'm referring to the cue from the complete score when they light up the Bat-signal and Batman appears out of the shadows.


MacArthur2013-10-02 18:11:37
Ok.....Haha, Thanks I'll do that.


Mike2013-10-02 18:14:54
And just for the record....beginning at 6:58 in that suite is awesome. The arrangement of it in the movie was less exciting.

MacArthur reply Replies: 16 || 2013-09-24 17:08:35
One quick thing why didn't Harry Gregson-Williams do the score for the 3rd Narnia?


Mike2013-09-24 17:33:21
I believe it had to do with the director of the third one usually collaborating with David Arnold.


MacArthur2013-09-24 18:59:30
Odd.....Cause Gregson-Williams did it better


MacArthur2013-09-24 19:01:00
Mike you catholic or something


Alex2013-09-24 21:34:33
I disagree. I thought David Arnold's score was far, far superior. To each his own...


Edmund Meinerts2013-09-24 22:17:01
Yeah, Michael Apted directed Dawn Treader and he had previously done, among other things, The World is Not Enough with Arnold. I think Arnold did a fine job but Harry's scores were among the first I ever heard so I ultimately prefer them by a hair (especially Prince Caspian here).


Mike2013-09-24 22:52:47
I am Catholic, yes, but that relates to this how?


Mike2013-09-24 22:55:59
And yes, I agree, HGW did it better.


MacArthur2013-09-25 02:05:58
Sorry Mike I saw you say Praise Jesus. So I was Just wondering. lol.


Bioscope2013-09-25 05:21:31
I am not Catholic, and I praise Jesus everyday.


MacArthur2013-09-25 06:34:14
No that's good don't take offense to it please. I wasn't meaning it in a bad way. I'm Actually a Christian myself so I also praise Jesus every day. I was Actually named after the Narnia books.

Just saw the movie, and as usual there are once again a lot of good stuffs from the movie missing. Gotten ready for my ranting? ;D

*******!! SPOILERS ALERT !!********

* The opening credits and first half of the Prince Caspian Flees sequence

* Brawl at the Station sequence, arrival to Narnia (if I remember correctly, it's totally unreleased)

* Caspian's flight through the forest with Ninambrik (?) and the badger and saving the latter from some Telmarines (great percussion)

* The whole portion of the Pevensies' travel through Narnia after Lucy is saved from a wild bear

* Caspian rallies his troops in the cave (?) and tells them he's the rightful heir

* Lucy's dream sequence (a very beautiful, long piano/woodwind driven piece, I cannot understand why they left it out. Two thumbs up to HGW on this one!! :-)

* Pevensies' first encounter with Caspian and Peter and the latter's subsequent duel (as far as I remember this was a great piece)

* The Army salutes Caspian and the Pevensies' as they arrive at Aslan's How; this featured a GREAT reprise of the theme from the first movie and reduced me nearly to tears when I saw it was unreleased.

* The full first half of the Raid On The Castle sequence (when Peter, Caspian and others actually infiltrate the Castle and take down the Telmarine guards)

* Repicheep's muted trumpet theme (this really pissed me off that they didn't release it!!)

* A part of the second half of the Raid On The Castle sequence when Peter escapes on a Griffin from Miraz's castle

* Miraz Arrives - the Telmarine army arrives at Aslan's How before the Duel parlay scene. This is a faster, percussion-driven version of "Miraz Crowned"

* Parts of "Battle At Aslan's How" and the second half of "Door In The Air" seem to be missing, although I'm not sure.

*******!! SPOILERS END !!**********

There must be more, surely too, but these are the ones that were stuck in my head after seeing the movie. So let's keep our hopes up for a bootleg! ;-)
