The Terminator Salvation video game correctly included the T-1000 motif, even if it wasn't used in the right context.<br><br>If Balfe stays, I'm hoping he leans more towards synth in the next score. If not, then I hope whoever takes over does.The samples sound great! Looking forward to hearing this!This score should've sounded more like Chappie...Alas, you are correct...<br><br>Since T3 all the scores have gone symphonic...Sure, there's percussion and some nifty SFX to go with the music, but as a whole it just doesn't fit and turns the movie into an action adventure. Beltrami and Elfman made good themes, but they just missed the point.<br><br>Terminator should very well sound synthetic.  <br><br>I figured with Remote Control behind the wheel this time, we'd get that. But in my opinion Balfe just went with Beltrami and Elfman and decided to turn this into a Jablonsky Transformers sounding score with more of your usual symphonic material. <br><br>Sure, it's using synths, but to be honest I would have preferred the synths Junkie used in Mad MAx over what was used here. Or hell, drag out Han Zimmer's harsh droning synths from the early 2000s...toss in some more anvil and marching band for the percussion and there you go. <br><br>I simply don't understand why this is so difficult. Or maybe it's too simple and that's why they keep missing the mark. <br><br>The Terminator Salvation video game score sounds closer to what I was hoping it would sound like than what we got.<br><br>Oh well...Nice themes though.FINALLY! :D
Listen carefully to the score. Its not hard to see who did the work.<br><br>Zimmer writes his simple, strong themes like the shen one and then Balfe gives them the ornate orchestrations and Powell-esque arrangements. Simple. Like I said here months ago on the batman page. Zimmer doesn't write this style of complicated cue himself. That's not his style. He doesn't do frilly and swirls and trumpets, he does austere and basic. Enter Balfe to spice it up.<br><br>Maybe that's why people are mixing up and thinking Powell did more than he did. Zimmer tunes + Balfe arrangement and you get a decent impression. Which was pretty much Megamind as well, a mini-Powell score in parts. Balfe is a very good arranger let's give him credit.Really looking forward to this.@Hybrid<br><br>Oh? That's interesting. Was it like a "Pirates" situation where everything was rushed or a producer thing?Powell did "Po Finds the Truth," apparently. I do find it pretty funny that it seems like the two primary composers didn't have as big a role as some of the secondary ones...And yet, this score is still great!Any ideas which scenes Powell actually worked on, if any?
There aren't much interviews because the projects didn't go that well during its production. And Powell actually didn't do much.I agree, to me the score mostly sounds like Lorne Balfe. <br><br>But I dunno, as I've said before, I don't think it's a case that Zimmer or Powell write a sketch and then sit back and drink coffee while the others do the work. I imagine it's very collaborative. <br><br>Unfortunately there's very few interviews/info about this score compared to a lot of others, which is a pity, because it's one of the best RCP collaborations. It's a really tight, well put-together, consistent, enjoyable score, and it's a shame none of the composers involved want to talk about it!I agree. Zimmer isn't heard obviously in much of this score, as has been repeatedly hashed out, but neither is Powell, if you ask me! It does seem like the additional guys did most of the writing here, albeit copiously using old themes and cues and doing so, presumably, under Powell and Zimmer's direction. I honestly don't see Zimmer *really* doing much of KFP3, either, even though his name is the main credit so far.<br><br>Thoughts?it seems that Intrada will release AGENT CODY BANKS on 7/7 :) source are the hints in the Intrada or FSM forum.To me most of this score sounds like Balfe's, with a few Zimmer spices here and there. I get the feeling that Powell got the co-credit because of the significant amount of stuff that were carried over from the original.
I suppose something went wrong on their last collaboration. Adrian's quote about the soundtrack album further encourages this idea.<br><br>Good riddance though. This is not Hans' area of specialty for me anyway.To me it sounds like a Zimmer theme, but put through a Powell arrangement/orchestration most of the time.forgiveness from Spain. I expect a lot of this musicWhat's the problem?You just COULD NOT wait 5 minutes ? You had to post this ? lol

Due to many technical problems, the webradio was down for the last two weeks. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but now all is going well back ; i should add new CDs in the playlist in a very near future.

Have a nice listening !

Thank you for this site!!! I am a software developer and the *right* kind of music for work hours (motivational and non-vocal) is hard to find. Due to your site I realize now that alot of what I have collected over the years for work hours is in fact by Remote Control associated artists. So discovering your web radio this week has felt like stumbling upon a gold mine!! I have donated. I am telling my friends about you. Hope you stay around. Thanks soooo much!

Could you pleasssseee remove Trevor Horn's "Video Killed the Radio Star"? It's an annoying pop song that really doesn't belong in a playlist that contains mostly lyric-less symphonic film music.

Other than that, I'm very much enjoying the web radio!

Hello its me again! Still listening. Just wondering, do you have a donation page? I would like to donate. Thanks!


Antas, Webmaster2011-05-21 11:19:57
Hello Simon,

Many thanks for your offer and your kindness !
I have added a donate button (paypal) on the left block of the site.

At The Beginning, we had decided to not put any publicity on the site but it costs a lot of money each year indeed (webradio/copyrights, server, bandwidth...).


Ok2011-05-21 12:12:08
The donation section should be placed at a place where it is easier to see. You should place it between comments and coming soon section.

btw how much do you pay for copyright, this is hans zimmers page, i would have thought hans would have helped you guys out?


ok2011-05-21 12:14:40
one more thing, is it possible to get a recently played list by or under the radio, it will make it easier to see whats been played. Many times i wonder what the tracks name was but the track had changed and i was left wondering.

thanks


Simon2011-05-21 18:47:29
Heya,

Donation done. Thank you. Was that donate button always there? I swear I looked all over for it lol.

Take care,

Is there a way to listen the radio on an android cellphone? I miss it when I'm not home.


Nicolas, Webmaster2011-06-03 11:25:35
This way to listen the webradio was created when we used AAC plugin, but the problem was many users didn't have the right plugin, so i decided to change for mp3 plugin. I kept this way to listen in exchange of the wonderful service Tunemark made to us in the time of AAC plugin ;)
