Well with that score we got pretty lucky in term of theme suites being released, with 5 of them. I don't know for sure if there's more but I think we have it covered.Hybrid, do you know if any suites were written besides the ones that they released?“Our World” is a pretty amazing track, the “Murph” suite is also incredible just in how it gradually builds to that finale...Dust, Who's They, and Our World are other favorites, for sure. Our World is some fantastic ambient music. Before the film was released, I expected most of the score to sound like "Our World."Mountains too... The Tick Tock suite.<br><br>"Our World" is a fav' of mine too, how could they not release it ?
Coward is amazing. Ntfc is overratedDon’t forget Coward! :DI don't think Cornfield Chase is underappreciated because that is the cue everyone is talking about besides No Time for Caution and Mountains. The most underappreciated cue to me is Dust. The amount of mystery, wonder, and curiosity from that cue is amazing.The development of the music in season 2 is great.<br>Love the Westworld suite, a lot of Person of Interest in this cue :)<br>Listening With A Million Ears In the West :)
Mike, I definitely agree with you. I think that Cornfield Chase is an excellent example of Zimmer's diversity in music. It shows that He can compose themes that are adventurous and light-hearted rather than being so dark, which is quite different from a lot of his works including his other collaborations with Nolan.So everybody talks about No Time for Caution, and that is a great cue, but I think an underappreciated track from this score is Cornfield Chase. It sounds so whimsical and uplifting. It captures the wonder and fun of childhood really well. The fact that it's so driven by the pipe organ makes it even better. I love how Hans incorporated the organ into most of the tracks.Does Paul Mounsey secretly compose everything??? He seems to be involved in so many scores.Hi guys. Do you know who will compose the score of wonder woman 1984 ? Rupert again ? Or hans ?General Kenobi!
Isolated score is coming:<br><br>https://twitter.com/chrismcquarrie/status/103052206820136140 9?s=19I hope the site hasn’t gotten in any trouble for posting the lists :-(I haven't in a long time, you'll notice...@Hybrid I don't get it. You usually post lists anyway when stuff like this happens. Why is it such a big deal when someone else does it?"it must have been deleted."<br><br>Yes. Stop this please.

Very candid and interesting responses.

I feel the interviewer showed up his limitations here though, couldn't follow up any of the interesting answers as it comes across he doesn't have a wide exposure to film music (or even music in general) - only the newer/RCP etc. stuff. Needs to listen to more stuff! And I think Powell was hinting at same ;-)

Also I find the name-dropping cringey, but that's prob just me.

this one has lots of nice little information pieces like he was involved to score Armageddon and also seem to have written some stuff for it (before bruckheimer rejected it)


Edmund Meinerts2015-09-14 12:46:47
Yeah, we knew that already about Armageddon. His demo idea for it eventually ended up on the Directors Cuts album series as a track called "Full Force" - you can find it on YouTube. It's an interesting piece from a historic perspective, definitely from the "Face/Off" era of Powell, but to be honest I don't like it that much, especially the second half. The resultant Rabin/HGW/etc. score is much better.

Perhaps the one and only time I'll ever be glad that Powell didn't end up on a project... :p

Just gonna defend my honor here. I have been listening to scores since I discovered film music in 1996 when I was 9 years old, have a degree in Electronic Media & Film. I started Film.Music.Media from a tiny blog to the site it is today. I've conducted over 200+ interviews since I started the site 6 years ago (review # probably in the thousands) and I work at Walt Disney Studios.

My goal for the "All Access" series is less formulaic structure and more organic conversation. If you want an interviewer who enjoys the sound of his voice more so than the information the interviewee is giving then maybe my interviews are not for you :P. If you can show me a better John Powell interview, then by all means please do ;). I'm very grateful to John for the time he gave for this. He is not usually one for interviews, but he was super willing and open to this idea and I think as an audience we all should be thankful for this mega morsel of insight from him.

Thank you for this interview Kaya, it was indeed very interesting. And you nailed it: we clicked on this link to hear what Powell had to tell, not a filmmusic debate. I think most people here are really grateful to you for providing such insight on John ´s career, so thank you again and keep up the good work!!
