@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?"The Wanderer", "Event Horizon", "You Have To Let Me Go" and "Tuesday (Voiceless)" = WOW WOW WOW!!!
Zanelli is no James Newton Howard, but he did a fantastic job with writing a large scale fantasy score. I’ll even say that, while I think the first Maleficent is stronger overall, I personally like the action writing better here. Also 2 little things I’ve noticed;<br><br>1. The new theme here sounds fairly similar to the Father/Son tune from KFP3<br>2. 2:20-3:30 sounds like it may have been temped from the finale of Fantastic Beasts. (Or maybe I’m just crazy lol)Great work of Zanelli, if is not as good like JNH's Maleficent, is a tremendous work, with a terrific writing and orchestrations, even the most tender parts are terrific.It’s definitely Balfe. I’ve seen the film for the second time two weeks ago so my memory is kind of hazy but luckily I decided to record the end credits for reference and I think it plays in Balfe’s section / variation of one of his themes played on a solo string instrument. <br><br>I think we got most of Richter cues as it was mainly his release. I feel that Lorne has moved on from this project - he didn’t even mention the release so an extended release of his material seems unlikely to happen :( <br><br>For those interested the credits suite plays as follows: <br><br><br>“A Trip To The Moon” (synth part)<br>“I Put All That Away”<br>Variation on the theme in “Underground Lake” at 0:14<br>Variation on the theme in “Trip To Neptune” 0-1:00<br>“To The Stars”Season 2 premieres in 2 weeks, if he was scoring he would be working on it at the moment. But yes no confirmation regarding his return or a new composer. No news regarding new composer might be a hint whether Djawadi is returning or not.I only listened to the first couple of cues so it is too early to form an opinion comparing it to JNH but I disagree the first half drags. Maybe because I love tender themes.
I suspect that the release was just what they had originally planned, with a couple of bonus tracks thrown in to appease Fox. They likely didn't put too much thought in what they added, since people who have spoken with Lorne said he wasn't aware of the release and was surprised Prayer wasn't on it. I'm just glad anything got released at all after everything that has gone before.<br><br>Regarding that theme you mentioned, is it one that sounded like the personal motif Ethan has in M:I Fallout? Because while I did initially assume that was Balfe too, it seems it was actually Richter. Haven't gotten to hear Lorne's parts yet, so who knows he if he also did a similar thing.It’s not included and I’m very confused. I think there’s a good amount of unused tracks or the way the score was used was so terrible that only few tracks were memorable to me. <br><br>There’s a theme that plays during two tragic moments - I thought it was “Prayer” but it isn’t. I think it’s by Lorne as it’s closer to the direction he took. <br><br>I wish they gave us more Balfe :(I know this is probably the wrong place for it but I'd love if Hnas would one day release a CD of just his demo sketches and suites. I find hearing the original intentions/ideas even when rough really fascinating.11.22.19Yeah lol one way or another... :P

yes it's true. by the way, what can you say for this Hybrid. Completely fake as you say for everything who win to post tracklist like this before you do it?


Mr. Fate2011-10-24 04:09:58
^^^The guy above me seems to be problematic and a non-believer.

Take care of him, please.

Of course, we could never know if it is continually the same guy who refuses to believe that Hybrid Soldier really does have anything: he's Anonymous. Yeah, good job genius.


Karambaru2011-10-24 14:32:58
I don't know for Hybrid, but for me at least this one's not a fake. But that's very old news, definitively. :)


Hybrid2011-10-24 20:16:39
don't be stupid. anyone can take my name and clai to be the 'real hybird'. just like now. stop acting pathetic and grovelling over someone who may not even exist. I claim to have the music, yet I do not share??? odd, eh?

Ready To Fight and Testify is fine, rest is boring. Also Kuala Lumpur is Green Zone copy-paste.

To be fair, I think the director wasn't seeking a bombastic score, let alone a melody driven orchestra. The story is sorta bleak, with all odds against one individual. I think the electronics resemble the highly evolved state of the CIA along with all the red tape that comes within this very story. It's simple, but at the same time very complex.

I think overall, it's music that was more or less used just to keep up with the story, the characters, and that's about it. It isn't like John's prievous scores where his music carries the soul of movies. This score was to carry the enviroment of the film - nothing more nothing less. And to be quite frank, it does the job. I certainly enjoy most of the music on here. Specifically "The White House" "Ready to Fight" "Uncomfortable Love" and "Testify"

@ mis and dawn. Hans zimmer likes composer to get a foothold in the business cause that the hardest thing to do, you always learn from each other and get inspiration from each other thats how the world works.

Ok, ok you're right ! I don't deny this ! :D

@Mis

Zimmer, along with Jay Rifkin, created a music company called Media Ventures, later renamed "Remote Control". Powell was hired in this company for a while... working on projects where Zimmer was the main composer / producer.
Now Powell has his own trademark and is more a master than a student, but he definitely began his hollywood carrier thanks to Zimmer, being some kind of a member of Zimmer's team. You cannot deny it ! :D

I don't know, they were only partners, not "teacher and student". Maybe it's more correct if I say that they are both student, and they can learn about each other ! Is is better ? :)

"...ex-team members of Hans Zimmer" Powell as a ex-team member of Hans Zimmer.... I don't know, but I consider Powell as a separate composer. Zimmer and he had a job (Face off) but then they split up. That's all :) He learnt everything by ownself I think.

I have a problem with this movie being called Fair Game, like the mid-90's actioner with Cindy Crawford, both films being scored by ex-team members of Hans Zimmer ! :)

You can hear the samples at amazon.
this is the link:
http://www.amazon.com/Fair-Game/dp/B0045X1GLK/ref=tmm_other_ title_0

another action-electronic music from john powell that sounds like doug liman' previous film score and recent greengrass' greenzone score. it sounds good, but i love powell scoring in animation world better.
(i want to be a composer in the future, and john powell is my main inspiration, so i love all john powell score)
