This mean the recording sessions?First Jedi Fallen Order, now Solo? I love this news! And I get the distinct feeling both releases are being used to determine interest in further Star Wars expanded score releases further down the line! Only real bummer is no CD to go on the shelf, but I'll take this any way it comes!He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Very curiousFantastic! Looking forward to that variation on Duel of the Fates! Now the only complete Powell collection I'm looking for is HTTYD 3.It's coming in November!!! This is so cool!!
Not referring you, superEXPANDED RELEASE SON!!!!!!!!!! LET'S GO!You mean that's GREAT news !Now thatís good news!I hear Harry Potter in tracks like "Playful Secrets" and "Labyrinths & Humps". <br><br>Yes i realize Elfman has had similar sounds to those tracks too, but i think Steve is at the very least trying to homage Harry Potter in a few sections. <br><br>And personally I think the main theme is the most Pirates-like, but that's why i said there's still Zimmer influence, (yes i know a few tracks sound like King Arthur too), but it's not overwhelming for the most part.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (The Deluxe Edition)<br><br>Coming soon to digital exclusive streaming: over 2 hours of original/unedited music from Solo: A Star Wars Story [as written for the film]<br><br>All cues + the original unedited version of the end credits suite!I never made the statement that only orchestral scores are good. I like the TF movies, Halo soundtracks, a lot of Hans Zimmer works including Interstellar. <br><br>However, i have little appreciation or interest in scores with little to no melody besides basic progressions. I need a heart to my score, not just music that works for the movie.Agree, solid work, but dosen't sound like John Williams, more like Danny Elfman.<br><br>Also, the main theme sounds like Pirates of the Caribbeanwhat an incredible album! it is getting very close to my personal favorite which is dunkirk. there is so much mastery in both. one thing that dunkirk has that this album doesn't have is a sense of repetition. both albums have some kind of non-finality. with dunkirk, i feel transported back to the beginning. with this one, i am not sure what comes next.<br><br>Hans and team probably have their share of anecdotes but here's another one.<br><br>i was playing this one day and my friend's daughter asked me if this was from... she hesitated and asked: the dark phoenix movie? i was astonished. she is 12 and probably not into movie scores. but she was able to pinpoint the right movie from a random part. that's something many aspire to. especially with the millions of super heroes movies out there!<br><br>i told her how impressed i was and went on unleashing my Hans Zimmer collection onto her haha :)Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>
I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',

Gotta keep an eye on iTunes. The Apple guys often have exclusive tracks for Sony Classical albums.

True. Though I'd like one of those "special edition" albums more!

Oh, I see it now. When I posted my question there was nothing listed on here or IMDb regarding Tillman's involvement (and I don't have the physical CD booklet to use as reference yet)

I was starting to think that having to perform the Joker theme over and over might have caused him to reconsider working on another project with Hans... :)

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-09 00:00:00
So is it I60 BMP or 160 BPM? The track listings for the CD on Amazon say "I" whereas the downloadable version says "1"...

Hans Zimmer Is The absolute leader of remote control.
Thank you !

@Cloud

I think it's 160 BPM, because in the booklet that's the trackname! :)

If you are a good musician, you can recognize 160 BPM rythm.

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-09 00:00:00
"I" is "1" in a way, anyhow.

How can you have this score already?! It'll be released on 05/12/2009...I'm sorry if you download it...let develop music world with original CDs... ;-) Am I right?!

Dawn reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-09 00:00:00
160 BPM
that's it !
Then the track name is based on the tempo of the song, definitely !

Kusi reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-09 00:00:00
Here in Switzerland we've it already, I'm sorry, that's the truth! I'd better like to have a cd in my hands than a mp3 file on the hard disk! :-)

Yes...I agree with you Kusi!!! It's much better the original CD!!!

Netherlands is 11-05 hehe.. but thats the german (thats means also the swiss) version ''Illuminati''... The American version is 15th here...
The Illuminati version has a better cover in my opinion.

A free bonus track (about 2 minutes and titled "H2O," and not featured on the regular album) is available for download here: www.angelsanddemons.com/soundtrack/

I'm assuming that the title "H2O" refers to Water - it would make sense, judging by the other titles on the CD (Air, Fire).

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-09 00:00:00
If anyone's interested they should probably download it at their earliest convenience - I'm not sure how much longer it's going to be there for free

Does anyone know what happened to Martin Tillman? Why was he not involved with this score?
He had such a prominent role in the Da Vinci Code and so I'm not exactly sure why he didn't return. It's also strange given that he and Hans just worked on Frost/Nixon and The Dark Knight.

Also, I wonder if the addition of Joshua Bell is at all related to this...

Leonor Antunes reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-08 00:00:00
My favourite composer.
I really wish to work with him one day as soon as I'm a filmmaker.
He's my source of inspiration!
I'm sure I'm going to love "A&D" once I loved "The Da Vinci Code"!
It's impossible not to love Hans.. his soundtracks are always epic and speecheless.

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-08 00:00:00
At almost 2 minutes into "Air," Zimmer reprises his Pazzi theme from "Hannibal" - I knew we hadn't heard the last of that theme! So far this is my favorite track on the CD (although I haven't listened to the much-talked-about "Science and Religion" cue yet)

Thank you for not posting those kind of (bad) "joke" (maybe his dead) ; bad humour, not interesting sentence, do not use your fingers on your keyboard for such a poor quote.

OMG - I've just heard the entire soundtrack!
And I have to admit - WOW
The song "Science And Religion" it's wonderfull.
I mean, the entire soundtrack is wonderfull!

Why are you all being so mean! Maybe Martin Tillman was envolve in other projects and couldn't be present for this soundtrack... And adding Joshua Bell in this soundtrack was a great idea! I love violins and this ost is full of them!

New sound: I60 BMP, there is a reprise in "Fire". Themes from the CODE: The Cetrine Cross with all the variations, and Daniel's 9th Cipher with Joshua Bell... only the rhythm is faster and action cues, excelent!

Great soundtrack. "Science and religion" left speechless, as if it was wrote by angels. "Election By Adoration" and "503" are changes on DVC theme. The rest of the soundtrack is harder to listen without the movie but I bet that next week I'll adore the entire score^^

I love it.

Only Zimmer can go from The Da Vinci to This.

With 2 bones! It's shit, but enjoyable shit.

it makes "the kraken" and "why so serious" vivaldi pieces.

I love it!
