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. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?
Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensationBalfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.I really liked Richter’s score over balfesI listened Max Richter for years. He is the kind of select or minority composer who does his solo works and soundtrack for movies not so famous. <br>His solo works are really really good with quintet and piano and voice. "on the nature of daylight" is definitely the best. <br>His sountrack is not good as his solo, to be honest. I think "the Leftovers" (2014-2017, HBO series), "Miss Slaone" (2016) and "Mary Queen of Scots" (2019) are cool.<br>If you need some peaceful music for meditation or good sleep, listen to his work.
Richter did his recording in january and june 2019. The Director himself is a fan of Richter, so the deadline and director are not the reason.<br>It seemed that producers were not satisfied with Richter's music and they wanted something new, that's why they got Lorne. It turned out Lorne brought a very limited new...@Cercei<br>Hybrid can definitely answer that best. Richter’s score is used (alongside Balfe’s material) as well as some source pieces. If I remember correctly it’s a mish-mash of the two.I do know that piece, it’s very pretty. I’ll check out his other works, thanks for the recommendation. In terms of minimalism I really am into Brian Eno at the moment. His “Music For Airports” and “The Lovely Bones” are excellent if you like more introspective music.btw, you're saying Lorne recomposed and reworked the entire score. as i haven't seen the movie yet, did the producers end up with not using richters score for it at all and just used the score from Lorne?thanks for your information. but i actually don't understand why they have done that. i've heard now Lornes cues and Richters cues. all those cues from Lorne, they sound very similiar to that what Richter composed, but somehow with less melodies. And you really have to work hard to not use fewer melodies then Richter, as he's a minimalist at its best ^^ with that being said, i can't hear any groundbreaking differences from Lornes part, so what was their idea on hiring it and getting the same style of music, but in a more "light" version? :/
i really admire Max Richters work, he isn't that new in this scene. his style is that repeating minimalism. maybe you've heard once the cue "on the nature of daylight" which was used a lot by many other movies. his last score which knocked me out was "Hostiles". such an emotional and intense score, you need to hear that, and probably see the movie as well (with Christian Bale). <br><br>Really surprised at this album, I’ve never really heard anything from Max Richter but I really like what he ended up writing for this score. It surprisingly flows well for a stand alone listen. It’s funny that the producers wanted a different approach, I think Richter nailed it.<br><br>Balfe’s contribution is excellent as well, I particularly like that repeating chord progression (which is starting to become one of his trademarks considering how many times he has used it). It’s disappointing that they didn’t include more of his contribution though, since he apparently rewrote the entire score.Lorne said in his Twitter, the first album for His Dark Materials come 3rd November, no date, for the moment, for the second album.Was the producersi haven't understood the fact, that Lorne was involved in this. Can someone explain it for me? Was the director not satisfied with Richters music? Was the deadline too near? Or what was the reason why they have brought Lorne to this project?

Ok...thanks Adrian, even if I haven't understood when you say: "they would have infos the minute they are infos"

Thn I've a question for you: the music that we can hear in the SH's trailer, is that Hans Zimmer's music?

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-31 00:00:00
Don't excuse yourself, you're right... This site should go official, then they would have infos the minute they are infos :P

We do know the Sherlock Holmes score will be released by New Line Records (it was in a promotional ad of the label) but no other news at this point. I'm pretty sure it'll get a good release, it's a Hans Zimmer score and a Warner Bros. film!

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-31 00:00:00
Yes Adrian I know, but I think that the Webmasters should know much more about HZ new projects!
I've read on anther website that James Horner has released an interview about his new CD Avatar...great news! But we don't know anything about SH! Excuse me but I think this...
Regards Enrico...

hello,
I just want to thank you Mr Zimmer for your fabulous music..
Especially this extraordinary solo violin at the end of the movie.
I felt already a great emotion with the orchestration during the first movie da vinci code and there I found it again but with the violin by josha bell and this feeling was so strong that I had tears. Thank you for this beautiful work.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-22 00:00:00
In the the "Angels, Demons, & Men in Skirts" interview, Zimmer said that the lyrics for "160 BPM" are just made-up vocalizations to suit the needs of the music.

Not that I'm complaining; it's an awesome track on an awesome album...

160 BPM (Beats Per Minute)

160 BPM is like Red Bull. Rest is a bit dissapointing (how could he end 503 in that moment?!?) but very listenable.
I'm giving 4/5 and hoping that Inception and Sherlock will rock.

zimmer, YOU ROCK

really love your music. . . Angels&Demons was the best of the best. Hope you score the "Lost Symbol" movie, if they adapt the book to the screen.

but this score will always be your best

To best of my knowledge enrico, hans never attended any formal music education. he has learned everything through collaboration nut studying books.

"making expanded score"... what does it mean ? Ripping DVD tracks ?

If it is the case, please come on ! Wait for a proper SFX-free version, even if it's a longer wait ! And do not waste your time making a CD with horrible sound quality, including gun sounds, people screaming, tires screeching etc... It really isn't qualitative.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-09-11 00:00:00
ok, Daw, i already did the expanded score, i gave my best, i think its really good!!

but i think that, like 'the da vinci code', 'angels and demons' won't have the expanded score!!!

Ehi guys I've a question for you...I've red on Wikipedia that Hans Zimmer attended the Hurtwood House in UK...but please, read here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurtwood_House

Expecially this one:

"Hurtwood is renowned for having outstanding theatre and media departments, and at around £10,000 per term, is the most expensive school in the UK."

My question is: how did Hans to atend the most expansive school in England?!!! I've no idea!!! Was Hans rich when he was young? I don't know...
However great Hans!!!

Can't wait for expanded score. Although Arrival of Electors sound like Kingdom Of Heaven, its still cool track. Like many many others unreleased in Angels & Demons

luiszimmer: it's a really nice that you doing an expanded score!
The Arrival of teh Electors is a really really good track. It should be on the "Normal" score too! I love that song! ;)
