I was wondering about this too. Like all of a sudden, after a couple of Ridley Scott collaborations, he disappeared.Streitenfeld's score for "All I See Is You" isn't added to this site. Does it mean, that Marc left the company?Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.The Thin Red Line >> The New World....Good for you?
I don't like Hans Zimmer, James Horner is my favorite.Uhh, I don't electronic music ain't gonna work on Alita Battle Angel.Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5
Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing ó but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>Oh wow! Thatís all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Canít insult me! I am genuinely curious. Whatís this about The Last Samurai???
I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :OCredits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.

look at this ---> h t t p ://hans-zimmer.com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1006

Hans and Lorne are looking for the voice of the Assassin's Creed Revelations Theme Song! It's great thst Lorne is on the franchise dispite it wasn't nessesary to change the composer, in my opinion - Jesper Kyd's stuff is still fantastic :)


Tim2011-09-10 15:41:24
oooops! sorry - that's the correct link

Ele2011-09-10 17:02:12
I don't get it. Who will be in charge of composing music? Jesper? Lorne? Hans? Or all of them?


T-Mann0362011-09-10 18:02:57
I think Hans will be providing the themes while Lorne composes the rest of the scores in each track.


Hybrid Soldier2011-09-11 09:33:10
Hans wrote nothing for Assassin's Creed.


Ele2011-09-11 10:54:16
So what is Lorne doing in this project? Composing only main theme, leaving all the music to Jesper? Or there will be some sort of collaboration?


Hybrid Soldier2011-09-11 15:18:03
Lorne wrote the Assassin's Creed - Revelations score.


Jesper had nothing to do with the score either. ;)


T-Mann0362011-09-11 17:03:40
So Hybrid... the Assassin's Creed: Revelations video game score will be composed only by Lorne Balfe, right?


Hybrid Soldier2011-09-11 17:47:15
It's actually already done.

Recorded 3 weeks ago... ;)


Ele2011-09-19 20:55:26

this score draws you into medieval. very intense - like Atli did on the Eagle! :)

Varese has just withdrawn this title and going to release it again on March 10 with higher price. What is this?! I just ordered this from SAE and now they had to cancel it from my order.

al bundy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-10 00:00:00
You can buy it as import from european stores like amazon.de or colosseum.de

Kaya reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-10 00:00:00
My order shipped from Varese but I did pre-order like a month ago. I sent them an email and they said the original delay was because they were waiting on their first shipment from overseas. So my guess is they got their shipment, sold out, realized it cost more then they though to import discs and are bumping the price if that's the case.

I wanna watch the movie just to see how the score hits the mood of this :)

Brad reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-07 00:00:00
Wow, this is score is so heartfelt and real. Lorne Balfe may end up being the best student Zimmer has ever produced, because this soundtrack is fantastic. I just sat through the entire listen (the leaked version) and it had me, from the eerie vocals to the soothing strings to the quirky instrumentation that beckons Sherlock Holmes. Ironclad is a wonderful listen and all credit must go to Balfe for this one. I will definitely end up buying this one.

Got some reminisce of clash of the titians, a bit of sherlock holmes, and some inception in there (the loud horns lol)

lol. it says that the track has been played recently, because someone else have already clicked on the track to be played on the radio. so you weren't able to request that track. it was also for me a pain in the ___ ^^ but i managed to record those cues from the webradio. i love to hear to those tracks without a break until the cd is out :) can't wait to buy it as the three tracks are really really promising!

oh and btw, am I hearing there some 'albanian' folk-melodies? ^^
It's on the medley, not sure which track it is actually.

gggh reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-09 00:00:00
yes now I've heard all the tracks in the webradio and I have to say this is really great.
Sure a bit King Arthur, but why not. But I'm also hearing Inception, those Booom-booooooooooooom.

I'm loving the instruments, especially the violin when it haves it solo, like in Hunger Sets In.

Lorne really is a great great talent, and I'm really looking forward to his new movies, and yes of course to this release here.

Hans did it right to have Lorne in his team. He learned a lot from the boss and now he can put some wonderful music out.

Brave Lorne!!!

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-09 00:00:00
Sounds really cool. I can hear some King Arthur and Pillars. Maybe some Tudors as well. Anyway, it's coming from Lorne, 100 % fun to listen for sure.
