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 couldnít help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ĎTerence Malick-yí, ďThin Red LineĒ feel throughout.<br><br>Iím definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I canít comment on what he might have written, but Balfeís 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 itís 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 itís 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"?Thatís literally the best part of the score though. But itís 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 ! :)

@VVV Batmobile Chase (Unused) (5:03) is just like a dog chasing dogs renamed... sorry to disappoint >.<

Ya, and on mine it's called "Two-Way Race"

I'm interested in hearing "A Hero With A Face" and "Sonar System" and the extended ending stuff

I would like to hear "Unlucky Driver" and the cue when Lao is driving the car with The Joker after Rachel is killed. But it doesn't look like that is on here, and mine doesn't have it either....

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-30 00:00:00
@Dakota - It's probably on the track "Wired" after all it's 8 minutes long and that version of the score on the OST is 6 minutes so maybe it's extended.

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-30 00:00:00
Ah, I must have missed that one. I'll bet it is, because judging by the track names that's around that very time in the movie.

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-29 00:00:00
Agreed. Actually for me, it comes down between this and Revenge of the Fallen, and then The Lion King.

well I'm sure once it leaks it'll be the biggest hit of the year and everyone would be so rushed to get it. I myself want this so badly, I'm interested in hearing the legit complete score tracks instead of those crappy fan made edits.

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-29 00:00:00
Well, the one that I leaked (which I got from someone else) isn't so bad. It's the closest thing to this one you'll get, I promise you.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-29 00:00:00
@I have it as well and it's pretty cool, but I love to get the REAL deal. This the most anticapted / most wanted complete score ever. lol

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-29 00:00:00
I'm also extremely interested to hear the unused cues, like "Batmobile Chase". I mean who knows what kind of never-before-heard epicness is on this release.

@Dakota I also have the release you leaked, and I will also say that it is probably the best release out there right now (given that it's the only one with SOME unreleased music).

Oh well *gritting teeth* ....patience is a virtue.....

I hope it does sooner rather then later. I need to wash the taste of rebecca black out of my...ears(?) with some real music. Plus this release would pretty much be the musical highlight of the year, at least in my book.
