wtf is this? did zimmer score a porno?why hybrid when lorne himself confirmed it? <.<@Hybrid, can you confirm Lorne is scoring MI6?I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?
Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.<br><br>I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent news
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not Balfe again and again and again :(Hey, everybody!<br>Did you hear the news?<br>Check this out:<br>https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=962210980613161& id=138474459653488Yes and no.<br><br>If we take into account that King Arthur is reminiscent of Crimson Tide, The Rock, The Peacemaker and Backdraft his contributions also pale because it is fair to say that King Arthur were based with the music of these films.There's a video on YouTube. The video shows Howard Shore writing and conducting the music for the orchestra. The video also shows Howard Shore and Peter Jackson talking about the score. After that, Peter Jackson rejected the score writing one statement about that saying Howard and he discuss about the music many times, Howard recorded many cues but in the process Peter he wasn´t satisfied about the music. That thing created many discussions, they could not agree in terms of music so Peter fired Howard after that saying he prefered keep Howard as a friend. And then the hobbit came and the rest, well, the relation was not the same. <br><br>So there's like 50 to 70% percent of the music recorded by Howard Shore. He didn't finish the recordings, so, yes, there's a rejected score recorded. And then, James came aboard.Of course he's involved !
Finally some news about this movie! I really hope Powell is involved because his scores for the first two moves are fantastic. I love them so much.Well "Prime" for TF2 is part of the main theme "Knights March" from King Arthur which Jablonsky co-composed so I really don't have a problem with a lot of the temps from King Arthur in Transformers. Specifically because Jablonsky did a lot of the main tracks for that score.Yeah, specially the "Prime" track from Transformers 2Some of Transformers was temped from King Arthur.Thank you :D<br>indeed, Bumblebee has the same vibe with the orchestral and guitar sound, and I guess GoT was temp too

A Klaus Badelt Interview : The Promise

The website Aintitcool.com released an interview from composer Klaus Badelt regarding his work on the Chen Kaige's movie.

"(...) What we wanted to do, both the director and me, was to create a film which can be felt by a global audience. That’s actually why he asked me to do it. You must know that Chen Kaige, the director, is maybe here not quite as well known…but in China, he’s a superstar more than any Steven Spielberg is in this country. He’s on TV everyday, he has a very famous actress wife, and wherever I went with him in any restaurant in Beijing, there’s a long line of people waiting for autographs(...)"

Bruce FOWLER in the daylight


Salt Lake Tribune released an article on the famous orchestrator/composer.
"(...)Zimmer composes the music in small segments on computer and sends them to Fowler, who opens the file onto two large computer screens on his desk. The music looks like a complex graph, with colorful bars of varying heights stretching across both screens, signifying different instruments, pitches and dynamics.(...)"

Gladiator the Musical

RIDLEY SCOTT's epic blockbuster GLADIATOR is set to be made into musical staged in London's West End.

The Oscar-winning film, which starred Hollywood hardman RUSSELL CROWE, will be adapted for the stage by WILLIAM NICHOLSON, who wrote the original screenplay.

The original HANS ZIMMER score will be used, but Crowe will not be reprising his role as MAXIMUS DECIMUS MERIDIUS. BRIAN STOKES MITCHELL will take on the part instead.

An associate of producer BRIAN EASTMAN says, "It's a terrific story which, with the right songs, will be a great show."

Crusade against Da Vinci Code has begun

When a film goes before the censors the usual result is that producers are asked to make changes to the images on screen, particularly if the film is of an adult or violent nature. Rarely, if ever, does a film’s soundtrack and score raise the eyebrows of the censors… until now. The producers of The Da Vinci Code, wanting their film to get a 12A rating in the UK, were flabbergasted to find that the BBFC were more than a little unhappy with the sound mix and the level of tension in Hans Zimmer’s score.
