would love to help out, but the video/track is blocked :/Think about Gemini Man, the score come out the same day as the movie (in that case, 11th October), and the details come the same week.<br><br>We'll likely get final details towards the end of the week or early next week. I guess I'm just a little surprised that it's taken this long. The movie had surprise screenings either yesterday or the day before, so it seems like everything's pretty final.Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)<br><br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.<br><br>https://youtu.be/etkri6OKLpEThere is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.<br><br>https://youtu.be/DbENmej_cH0
But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :PThanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the score
Tom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>
Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.Aplusle, that's really well put actually.Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?

Well, maybe Djawadi will do something atmospheric like MoH - he's best so far. And I hope that this TV show will be huge success - maybe this will force Martin to finish those f****g book!

Djawadi replaced Warbeck in "Game of Thrones". It's true or not?

@tompoland,

if that's true, Warbeck is getting sloppy! he was replaced by Badelt on Killshot too...
shame, he did some amazing scores in the past, like captain corelli and shakespeare!

The tune of "Rango Theme Song" sounds somewhat similar to the classic Western song "Ghost Riders In the Sky," but with more of a mariachi flavor and enough variation to avoid being a carbon copy. It's incredibly catchy!

Exactly Hybrid, the suite :D

Hybrid, I want to ask you about some "additional" music. Can you tell me what Zimmer composed in :

"at witt's End and "
"I don't think Now is the best time"

"psycological recover...16 monts"

"Air"
"fire"

I noticed you have a lot of information about it, and I really want to know more about who composed what in his scores. Zimmer is my second favourite composer (goldsmith is the first ), and even if I can notice when Zimmer is the composer or not of some piece without reading the credits, I really want to know every single official credit you can give me ;)
Thank you!

listen to the rango theme song here

soundcloudDOTcom/antirecords/los-lobos-rango-theme-song

This is from the la times music blog

By the time Los Lobos were brought in to contribute music to "Rango," band principal David Hidalgo estimates that there were already somewhere between 12 and 20 takes at the theme to Gore Verbinski's spaghetti western-like animated feature. It was composer Hans Zimmer, said Hidalgo, who admitted defeat at trying to craft authentic mariachi music.

"They could do it on their own, but it sounded funny," Hidalgo told Pop & Hiss. "It didn’t sound authentic. So they needed some Mexicans in there. That doesn’t sound kosher and it doesn’t sound right to say it that way, but in a way it is. You need someone who knows this music, someone to play it properly and get the real effect. That’s why they called us in."

Hidalgo hasn't seen how the band's music is used in the film -- a couple of storyboards and some rough scenes were all the band has been shown -- but the act's "Rango" theme will no doubt play a pivotal role, and act as an anchor to the soundtrack. Paramount Pictures' "Rango," about a Johnny Depp-voiced chameleon having an identity crisis, and who suddenly finds himself in a desert town with all the action of the Wild West, is the first animated feature from "Pirates of the Caribbean" director Verbinski.

"Rango" the film will be unveiled to the public on March 4, and "Rango" the song makes its debut below. Local label Anti- will release the soundtrack digitally on March 1, with a CD version available in stores on March 15.

it's just that we know from experience that his best work is done alone, and not with an army of composers.

Julien Brunet reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-02 00:00:00
Please, everybody stop immediately with the unanswered question : What did Zimmer compose on each record? Zimmer is a genius, even if he doesn't manage the full orchestration. He is "unique" such as a Morricone, a Williams, a Barry, a Goldsmith, a Desplat or even a Sakamato or a Hisaishi.
I mean when Zimmer composed Rain Man or Black rain was by himself and I am sure that on the thin red line the whole genius part is come from his mind. So just everybody should admire such a composer please. He gave so much.
With Morricone and Williams, he is the best. He produced a revolution.
Thank you.

@Adrain --- I agree with you. Except the "I prefer Jablonsky over Zimmer" part :D

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-31 00:00:00
@Enrico,

I don't agree with you on Steve Jablonsky... He knows very well how to use it and make something of his own. Although his style on TF or Dragon Wars is quite close to Zimmers, there is a lot of Jab in it too. A track like Optimus is a perfect blend with electronics and orchestra. The Island awaits you is perfect use of an orchestra with coir, in my opinion. Unfortunately, I can't say why. I guess it comes down most of the time on what you like.
Personally, I would even prefer Jablonsky over Zimmer! Not only by orchestra, but also thematically.

But actually: it's comparing pears and apples (or whatever the English saying is).

Pete reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-29 00:00:00
that's true Enrico. Zimmer's work is far above the efforts of the additional composers when they score their own movies. I'm sure he does an awful lot himself and the others help with sequencing and writing some cues under his supervision. Lots of composers do this, even traditional composers like John Williams will sketch out a theme and give it to Conrad Pope or another orchestrator to finish. Obviously the additional composers are more involved than this, but I think at the end of the day Hans likes to give lots of credits to people who help. Good for him.

This is my guess anyway. Maybe Hybrid can tell if I'm right or wrong :-)

Lorne was finishing Megamind when Rango was starting, and then did The Dilemma, so unless he hid it to me, he didn't work on Rango...

Well, "Additional Music" can be from "orchestrator" to "co-composer"... As HZ said 5 years ago in an interview, he really ruined the meaning of Additional Music ! :D

For the different meanings :

"Additional Music" : Someone who arranges the composer's cues (adapting pre-existing themes & segments to actual scenes in the film (like, make a 2:17 HZ synth theme fit a 3:18 cue and orchestrate it etc...) & write some on his own (meaning he can write subthemes (for instance Geoff Zanelli in POTC 2 writing Tia Dalma's theme).

"Additional Music Arranger" or "Music Arranger" : A bit like what I just said apart from the writing part... Someone who adapts cues (for instance Nick Glennie-Smith's variation on the Gladiator Waltz in Barbarian Horde, or Trevor Morris adding a trombone at the end of A Way Of Life in The Last Samurai...

"Synth Programming" or "Music Programmer", "Sequencer Programmer" (or "Ambient Music Designer") : Basically an arranger, but in a more technical way... Adding samples here & there... For instance Bart Hendrickson adding drums all around in POTC 1, or Mel Wesson adding weird sounds all around in the same score...

All this generally being called in general "Additional Music"... And sometimes, you have guys credited "Music Programmer" (like all the Armageddon guys) when they actually are "Additional Music", or in that same score HGW being "Additional Music" when he should "Co-Composer"...

All the assistants are useful cause with Remote Control big computers, servers & high tech stuff, you basically CAN'T do something alone, you always have to have someone in a secondary computer even if that's just to push one button ! :D

As for HZ, he generally composes big theme suites and the guys just make it fit a movie... And when someone is done with a cue, HZ comes back behind to check if it fits the scene, the score style etc... And might rearrange it himself if it's not that great... ;)

I don't think JJ, lots of composers that works alone, without Zimmer, make really BAD, BAD soundtrack, the quality of Zimmer's work and style can be heard on every CD.
On THE DARK KNIGHT he told that he let the composers marks contracts just to help them with money.
