From albums yes, not from the scores... lolemoji movie. live action Pokémon movie. 5 transformers movies. Let’s be honest studios have no clue what people wantAre you sure Jackmans been removing the electronics from his music, or just from his albums?<br><br>Civil War was noticeably different, if you compare the OST to what you heard in the movie.Hybrid said there was some sort of legal issue that came up which prevented use of the samples or something like that.Eh, Shore is a smart composer. He could make it work. I guess whether that's what studios think audiences want is another question entirely...
Is it me or are none of the soundtracks on the website showing the sample tracks that you could listen to anymore?Have you heard that Henry Jackman will composing his music for the upcoming 2019 picture called Pokemon: Detective Pikachu?  I wonder what the film soundtrack would sound like.  Hmm...I think that Howard´s style of music doesn´t really fit to the post apocalyptic genreFor a Peter Jackson production I was expecting Howard Shore.I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!

What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).a more orchestral fury road
Tom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for meAw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.

How should we call the page? Lorne Balfe fan club, something like that?

Yup, it's fine :)

I`m really starting to be a big fan of Lorne Balfe... :-D the trailer sounds great as well (E3-2010 Cinematic Trailer).

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-18 00:00:00
Hey, Hybrid, i have a question, which trailer of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood has Lorne composed the music for?

Is it the E3 Trailer with 2:41 Min?

Sorry if the question is at the wrong place, but the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood trailer section is blocked.

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-18 00:00:00
Tim: I agree, however his style isn`t so easly recognizable as HGW`s or Powell`s style .. yet :-) (HGW`s or Powell`s first solo scores were also much close to RCP sound).
Ele: No problem .. we should make a proper facebook fan-made page for Lorne! :-D
I have a feeling he`s going to get a lot of new fans in following months.

@Prott
oooh yeah :D I'm so curious about his next projets! Crysis 2 is gonna be awesome!! Ironclad is gonna be excellent!! He's very original, more than Ramin Djawadi or Steve Jablonsky (which is not difficult, great composers,though). He is more on that HGW/John Powell level of awesomeness :)

wow thanks for this hybrid. i'm hearing it right now at youtube, but it's a 14 minutes cue. until now i'm speechless, what a beauty there.

Man Lorne is the most talented person from Zimmers team now. Love every work from him. Hope to hear many more from him!!!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Yeah I see Lorne put it on youtube 2 days ago ! Very cool ! :)

Well he edited it a little bit to fit "under" 15 min... :)

Wow, this cue is fantastic!

One question to you Hybrid. I see some video by Lorne on youtube. There are some signed as Oswim Mackintosh. Who is that? Is it Lorne's some kind of nickname? I checked extreme music site to find more by Lorne, but there's no Lorne, there's only Oswim. It makes me think Lorne=Oswim. Is it true?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Yeah it's an alias... Oswin Mackintosh is indeed Lorne !

Don't ask me why, he didn't answer that !! lol

john reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
what i'm liking most at lorne is, that he is searching the contact to the people. you know hans is such a talented musician, but he's not that open to public. and lorne gives you information, cues that will never been released, or like iron clad one month earlier on the webradio etc.

it is really like a fresh wind in RCP and that's great. seriously i'm hoping to hear a lot more from him in the future and hopefully he will be like this also in the future!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
john there's a counterpart to that : when it's about Hans and the scores with Hans, he doesn't say much... And he's quite afraid of official interviews actually !! :D

I've tryied (me & others... Kaya ? lol) to make him do an interview for Megamind, and let's say that... well... I didn't retry for Ironclad !!! LOL

Off the record he's really cool indeed, though I remember at the beginning (nearly a year & a half ago, when I was harassing him to release Modern Warfare 2 & Crying With Laughter, which he did in the end ! :)) he was almost "mute" ! So it's not THAT easy ! lol

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
I knew it :D I advice you then: go to the extrememusic website. Browse Director's Cut album, and listen to all so called "Oswim Mackintosh" cues. They are amazing!

john reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
@Hybrid: we should be so happy to have you here and having you as the "brick" between the fans and the composers. It's really so much fun to read here all those insider infos. So thank you so much for your work! :)

And yes, i can understand when they are sometimes "mute" hehe :P
But i have just a feeling that when you ask Lorne "hey lorne, how about a recording session of this movie?", he would just answer "yeah why not, I'll do it". :P

And as for Hans, yeah, the big diva :D Like you said in the past, when you asked for some extended versions or bootlegs or recording sessions, he knows nothing about them and don't even want to hear that. But sure, he's the boss there and he has soooo many projects going on, so it's understandable when he don't want to take the time for some expanded releases.

But that is why it's so great to have composers like Lorne where you really can get in contact with him.
That is also what I'm liking with Mr Badelt. Such a friendly man and so polite. But too bad, he isn't anymore in this team.

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Ha, it`s great to hear so many different styles in just under 15 minutes (It`s like RCP-history timelapse). :-)

It looks like it was recorded the way MW2 was (sampled orchestra with a few solo instruments recorded live), but the overall sample quality is much better. Does RCP made another sample library upgrade? :)

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Indeed, the overall sound is better, even though its sampled. Maybe they really made sample upgrade? Because I don't think that this short movie had orchestra at all.

I guess I become a Lorne fanboy at the moment! :D
