Call me crazy but I really would have been interested to see what Tom's Godzilla would sound like under the direction of someone with good musical taste such as Dougherty.<br><br>Not really a huge fan of Desplat's work but I would definitely kill to hear Douglas Pipes take on this project.@Edmund Hahahahaha..... yeah, I've always heard that too. Even the chopping string section in the background of both pieces is vaguely similar.Zimmer did some additional music on this?Sounds to me like the big dramatic Bach-like theme at the very end of the Kraken. Only a slight similarity though :pWow Edmund, I'm impressed... where do you hear this theme in The Kraken? They sound like completely different pieces of music to me :-D
I'm not upset (I like Junkie, but I LOVE Desplat's), but i HOPE for Desplat or PipesToo bad, but I hope this means Desplat is back.I see, thank you for answer!Sounds excellent . Balfe has really found a unique voice now . I have listened to the YouTube link for the album constantlySo... long story short, it actually looks like Tom will NOT be doing Godzilla after all, according to director Michael Dougherty. Check the director's Twitter account. Even though I enjoy Tom's music, I'm much more excited about the prospect of a Douglas Pipes Godzilla score (or the return of Desplat, tbh).
I asked this before to lorne on Facebook . He said the roles can mean different things . Some composers assistants help with running the office . Some deal with making sure the music works to the latest cut of film . Some arrange<br>And orchestrate also . Means varied tasks .Please!!! Come to Mexico!!! I agree with Leonardo!!!Please could you also come to MEXICO!!! You have a lot of fans in Center and South America!! :)Yeah, just got announced on Film Music Reporter, although the rumor was flying around long before that. Really disappointing for me, since the director Michael Dougherty usually works with Douglas Pipes who is a great, underappreciated composer.It really is too bad HGW isn't scoring Alien. He is one of the best film composers and he scores so few movies these days. A real shame!
Great score.....I have a question and I would love if somebody can answer it - What such an assistant of composer is doing? Is he just making coffee or actually making music? I am really curious, I know that Lorne was assistant too!@Hybrid: Is true Tom go to compose Godzilla: King of the Monsters?nice thanksIt's OK, he got to use it for the Kraken in Dead Man's Chest! ;)

Great score. But its a pity the credited composer wrote almost none of it.

I know it's a tired debate, but I don't know how people here are so comfortable with the fact he takes full compositional credit for scores like this, Madagascars etc.

Scores like this you can't even earnestly say he wrote the themes like with Pirates. At least there the core of the material is coming from him. Here, the giddy up theme is Lorne, the villain theme and Homer suite are Jackman, the Lisa theme is Alti, etc. etc. Even the main theme arrangement isn't his.

I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him, that's not the problem. Those aren't his strengths, it's not a big deal. Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes. He's also good at organising his talent. The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me.


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-19 20:53:59
Well if you take the cue sheet every composer is credited for every cue on this score...

The name on the film credit is a contract.


I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...


Zimson2015-04-19 22:59:11
Exactly, ghostwriting is very common in the industry. At least his collaborators get credited here.

"Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes."

You're making it seem as if he was some sort of second rate composer, probably unintentionally, but let's not forget that he wrote Gladiator, Lion King and Prince of Egypt almost all on his own and those are considered film score classics. The first one even made it's way into many contemporary classical selections.

It's true that he took a step back in the 2000s focusing more on his role as a producer and this one is probably the prime example. However, his theme suites, especially for potc, are already a very good representation of the score's memorable parts and I'm sure the result wouldn't be very different if he did everything by himself.

And what exactly do mean by "his limitations"? You seem pretty new to Zimmer's music. He can do Powell as well if necessary as shown in Kung Fu Panda 2.


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-19 23:13:32
Don't think Hans can't do anything and needs people to do so... I think it was valid 25 years ago when Shirley Walker was orchestrating & arranging his scores...

But now, not really, he can do anything... He doesn't use add. composer because he HAS to, but because he wants to. Most of the times he starts the cues, gives direction and leads his guys where he wants them to go, and always has the final say...

I'll take an example, Rush... If you check the cuesheet, it's quite a mess, you basically have 0 cue with Hans alone... And yet he wrote most the themes to picture this time, with Ron Howard & Peter Morgan in the room. No theme suites... Then the guys just arranged slightly & added stuff... But a lot of the cues are him in the first place...


Edmund Meinerts2015-04-19 23:14:36
Except that was Powell himself doing Powell in KFP 2 (well, Powell and Palfe). ;)


NM2015-04-20 00:11:30
Palfe? haha... btw Edmund, do you still think "More Cannons" is Powell. I'm pretty sure I hear bits of it in Lorne's (excellent, btw) "Home" score!


Edmund Meinerts2015-04-20 00:35:44
"More Cannons" is Bowell/Palfe. What the weighting is, I don't know, though I'd be inclined to think something like 70-30. Bits of Home sounding like it isn't all that convincing an argument, since a composer doesn't need only to rip off his own repertoire ;) I'm more convinced by the Megamind similarity towards the end of that track.


isildur2015-04-20 22:59:38
"I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him"

LOL. How funny is this statement. Just can't stop laughing. Ignorance is bliss.


Leo2015-04-21 02:29:38
>I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...

Now you got me curious...


JamesT2015-04-21 04:43:13
@vced:
"The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me."

Interesting you impress upon this point with this score. Conversely, like Hybrid cites, a contract is a contract. Let us not pretend that Hans kicks and shoves his collaborators -- writers, arrangers, etc -- into a closet never to be mentioned or heard from again. Essentially everything he does is a collaboration, and credited so appropriately, minus an example or so by my observations.

I don't criticize Harry or Powell every time the liner notes from a score don't specifically praise Hans.

Who knows @ the dynamics, influence, inspiration, success of a given cue? Those that work on it. From the idea, to the last note.

Ya ok, 1m11-12 Chruch Prophecy definitely belongs with Angels & Demons. I've heard it in the trailer. And you can hear the themes in there.

Very interesting, didn't even notice that one. It sounds like it belongs in Angels & Demons
