Ummm @Hybrid, what do you think about Holly Amber Church. I listened two scores from her and they are really good scores.I really liked Gary Go's Friend Request from 2016 too.My choices for Avatar 2 would be:<br>Powell or Newton Howard^ 2018 I meanSteve really knocked it out of the park with “Nightmare”. I always appreciate horror scores that balance the use of themes with the more atonal music you normally get.<br><br>And the last horror score I remember loving was John Carpenter’s 2019 Halloween score. A great blend of old and new, especially for Carpenter fans like myself.
@Knight Powell’s last score was HTTYD3....@superultramegaa<br><br>Luke Richards did “Ospreys” and Gary Dworetsky did “Calling All Autobots”. You can find that out from this very site.I'm a huuuuuuge fan of the Freddy character & movies, and I really liked this remake, it didn't deserve the reputation it has... Especially when you compare to Freddy 2 or 6... lol<br><br>Music is great, best horror score Steve did with Amityville. But I also liked his more ambient horrors like Texas Chainsaws or Friday the 13th or Hitcher. But I can understand he probably wanted to step out of that genre and not end up being the new Harry Manfredini typecast !"I wouldn't say "Battlefield" sounds nothing like Steve, it is pretty in line with his TF style"<br><br>Well that's the thing, if you think "TF style" thinking of TF1 & 2, then it's not exactly completely Steve. So I stick to my comment... :) lolI recently saw both this movie and Friday the 13th (2009). And I have to say that Steve did a pretty good job with the music. Yes, I'm aware of the complaints and the whole "remakes suck" mentality. But still......I advice you to revisit these scores. You might be pleasantly surprised. <br><br>Speaking of horror scores.......I realized these days that it's been a while since we've heard a TRULY memorable and effective horror score. Or maybe it's just me and I've missed some really good ones...<br><br>Your thoughts on the matter, folks?
^ Yet he’s still not quite a household name like some of his peers. HTTYD, Bourne, and Solo have all given him great exposure, but I feel like the general public doesn’t quite recognize him on the same level as Zimmer, Giacchino, or Williams.Many thanks Hybrid!John Powell's last score was for a Star Wars movie, I don't think you could get any more mainstream exposure than that.So Steve called Lorne for help, who agreed but asked not to be credited (his team was, so it kinda defeated the purpose lol)... They didn't do THAT much on the score<br>--------------------------<br><br>There you go. Exactly how I expected it to be. They were simply helping each other. We've seen it multiple times before with other big scores.<br><br><br>Thanks for clearing it up.I wouldn't say "Battlefield" sounds nothing like Steve, it is pretty in line with his TF style, but yeah, I definitely see the Lorne involvement in there. Interesting though, our first official additional composer credit on this score!
John Powell would be an amazing choice, if only to get him more mainstream exposure. <br><br>The thing is, if you strip away the drums, sound design, and harsh-mixing Tom is a actually a pretty gifted “classical” composer imo. His string writing has always impressed me, and seeing his use of woodwinds in Alita definitely proved that he can write outside of the mold Hollywood had put him in post-Mad Max.<br><br>Avatar 2 is most likely going to need a pretty diverse score, if the first one is any indicator. James Horner combined traditional orchestra, tribal drums, ethnic elements, electronics, and masculine action writing. All of which I could see Tom doing quite well.Chrono order goes like this :<br><br>Dublin 1996<br>Driving<br>Deceit<br>Second Warning<br>First Warning<br>Research<br>Conversations<br>The Beating<br>Traynor Lies<br>Never Show Your Fear<br>Preparations<br>The Killing<br>Bad News<br>The Funeral<br>One More Day<br><br>But some tracks have cues edited together, and some titles are not exactly perfect lol...Atli is fine in Iceland, maybe he just doesn't want to look for trouble anymore... :)Lorne did work on this score. At the very end, when the film (and therefore, the score) was getting butchered by editors to shorten it, there was very little time to rework the score to adapt it to the new cut. So Steve called Lorne for help, who agreed but asked not to be credited (his team was, so it kinda defeated the purpose lol)... They didn't do THAT much on the score, but Battlefield is indeed a LB cue (it sounds nothing like SJ).<br><br>Not the first time this happened. Lorne extensively worked on TF1 & 2 (credited), but also helped (uncredited) on TF3 (there again, his assistant back then Andrew K. was credited).Alright, that's ^^ a bit too far, but I agree that there's not enough evidence to really support the theory. The only compositions that seem like Balfe might have had a hand in are the various reprises of "Bumblebee" (aka the Journey theme) that was always rumored to be co-composed by Balfe, and the big choral section in "Your Voice" when the knights begin attacking Optimus, as that is also a progression I associate heavily with Balfe's involvement in the first 2 scores. But that's still not enough to prove that he was involved.<br><br>By the way Bayhem, I don't believe that John Williams or Howard Shore have lied about doing their work by themselves. John Williams has worked with William Ross and probably others, but I don't think they're lying when they say they've done a score themselves. They seem like they can compose on their own just fine.

I think Hans is from the same blood of Beethoven. He belongs to his family.

i understand some unreleased music from DVC made it to this album. is there a way to break it up to add that?

Dawn reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-22 00:00:00
I don't see the point in "breaking" a cue out of DVC to reimplement it in A&D. Orchestrations and instruments are different... this is not the same cue. Enjoy it as it is presented on DVC album... or wait for a true complete score ! No ? :D

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-22 00:00:00
Yeah Dawn, like I don't see the point in "cutting" tracks to put them in correct order... I mean, the album is buit as suites !

OK, if you get an album like Kung Fu Panda, with complete tracks isolated from each other, or Sessions with all the tracks, then OK I'd put them in the correct order...

But with albums like A&D or POTC 3, I don't get it !

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-22 00:00:00
Why not cut tracks? Well, A&D/ DvC would be quite difficuilt, but if you have a long suite like in POTC3, I don't think now is the best Time at (aprox) 3 minutes starts Atli's piece, which is quite different from the first part. And Atli out around 4:55... So you have a complete different piece there, right in the middle.
I don't find cutting good for every suite, but this is in my opinion a textbook example of a track which you could cut with a proper argumentation.

Personally, I hate long suites... I find 10 mins too long for one track...

Deakins reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-22 00:00:00
Long suite is the essence of the true zimmer's style. Remember 'Crimson Tide', 'Beyond Rangoon', 'Peacemaker'. I feel this way is the better for appreciate the globality of a score. Maybe these 30 seconds at the middle of the track (random track) will be bad if the author would cut them for another track.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-22 00:00:00
Those were awefully compiled scores... Yes to make a track of 30 seconds is aweful too.. I prefer scores compiled like Gladiator or The Holiday, though the last one has some very short tracks...

bondo reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-22 00:00:00
I 'cut' tracks only to put them in chronological order. I prefer listening to a score as it was heard in the film. Though I only do this when I can do a proper fade in/out.

Doesn't H20 come between "Fire" and "Black Smoke," when Tom Hanks rescues the man drowning in the fountain?
