Hello everyone! After watching the film I noticed that about half of music that used in film disappeared at sessions or has different arrangement. Why it's not released? What's the reason for this?As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.
I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be funI love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.
Not any more lame than the Balfe cueLorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lol
So is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?That’s literally the best part of the score though. But it’s typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)

First of all, let me say "thanks" to all of you, who commented my work on "He's a pirate". I would like to thank the administrators of this site for this "Cover versions" section. However i would like to add, that the new design of the left column is nasty))
My appologises for that i didn't answer some comments - i didn't see them unfortunately((

To Christian Stähler
- Thank you for commenting) It was long time ago - i mean, my cover of "Pirates". Today, i would have done it a way different, and i think, better. However i don't feel like i want to do "He's a Pirate-2009 version"=) Despite the fact, that my arrangement on this site is far from perfect))

As for software - East West Silver Orchestra is a very good choice. I used, as far as i could remember, EW Gold Orchestra+ Stormdrum+ some other VST for "backing track". But the "base" VST was EW Gold. This VST is quite old, but still, after all this time i think it is one of the best choices for symphonic/soundtrack tracks. Symphobia also sounds great- i recommend to check it out - bass string section is wonderfull there. Cellos and contrabasses sounds almost(or even just like) like in Zimer's arrangements.
And one more thing - don't forget about mixing and mastering. During mixing process you can adjust you samples to sound better. My arrangement sucks in mixing - I didn't mix it at all, frankly) I just didn't know what mixing is) Good luck)

P.S. Me, personally,...i don't think Garritan is the best choice for creating "zimmer-style" tracks. But it is a very good VST however.

Hi Alexander!

I got a couple of questions for you.

Which softsynths did you use on you Pirates arrangement? I'm using East West Silver Orchestra, Garritan and sounds from the Logic Library, but I'm not able to get as good results as you. Could you please tell me, contact me on chrst@getmail.no if you got time to answer.

Great arrangement by the way!

Thank you

Love the acoustic guitar version. To me the perfect orchestral version is Hans' original, so I don't not see the need to replicate those. I think there is video on youtube using this acoustic guitar version...very cool!

Hi,

For the medley broken arrow/gladiator, i composed it on my old synth (yamaha psr i don't know how much anymore) and did it for the very first release of this website in october 2001. Since my old synth passed away, I had only this bad recording i gave you ; nothing more as i didn't try to compose it longer.
Anyway, thank you for your feedbacks !

Alexander, I love the arrangement you did. It is fantastic. I think it sounds very cool. I like the way you closed it very much. Especially how you went up an octave at the very end. Very cool.

I am arranging the Hans Zimmer Gladiator film score for brass band, I do not intend to try to have it published or sell it, but I would like to get permission for my own brass band in England to record it on a CD of film music we are making later this year. Would you be able to suggest where I go to seek the relevant permission (re publishers/copyrights etc)

@Ramin :

cover music means in that case : music composed by artists from RCProd (Hans Zimmer, Klaus Badelt...) but played (and arranged) by fans
