.....synthesizeredAnd if he will incorporate any music from the show/games....As someone who grew up with Pokémon as a kid, I am super pumped to see how Jackman approaches this. Seeing how the marketing is skewing to 80’s music (and the visuals have that neon color scheme to match the noir tone) I wonder if this will be either be fully orchestral or synthesizered.Aviadable 3rd May<br><br>https://itunes.apple.com /es/album/pok%C3%A9mon-detective-pikachu-original- motion-picture-soundtrack/1460177128This CD contains music from 2 icelandic films Atli scored :<br><br>Blóđberg (2015) aka The Homecoming<br>Fyrir Framan Annađ Fólk (2016) aka In Front Of Others
Waiting patiently for Disney to finally announce National Treasure 3? lolDoes anyone know what happened to Trevor Rabin, he hasn't scored anything for a few years nowYou did it for the complete, which is "illegal" and only available in certain circles, not the OST which is commercially available. I simply did what you could have done yourself easily but chose not to.Says the guy who took his intel from... me...Excuse me for doing the thing you didn't bother to do.
Having an opinion is one thing. Not being intellectually able to express it without being rude & stupid is another thing. Once you find a way to combine the two, your comments will stay.<br><br>And Knight, just don't push it.Hello all. My mother is a French horn player, and we are totally in love with Hans' score for Disney's "The Lone Ranger" (the best part of that film, if you ask me). I have searched for the horn sheet music for this, but can't seem to find anything...does anyone know where I might get it? Thanks much!!huh?1- Open - (Hans Zimmer 1:03) - (1:04 -2:27- Lorne Balfe), and continue Hans Zimmer music. 2:27-2:58Also calling jumanji (the one jackman scored) anything but a good film - is also illegal and gets your comment removed
Okay, so doing the same stuff that Hybrid does is illegal here now. CoolTrue, Mr. Tweedy. I don't know how involved Hans was with Now We Are Free, but he specifically talked about Up is Down at one point. And while he did give Henry Jackman credit for the penny whistle stuff, his comment was something like, "And Henry and I just jammed with the theme a bit after he came up with that idea" (unfortunately the link to the interview, on the POTC3 page here, is dead). So Up is Down sounds like a co-composition from the two. I wouldn't be surprised if it were the same way with Lorne Balfe and the Action Ice Theme. <br><br>But we'll never know. lol.I get what you're saying Mike, but much of the action material in the section you mentioned is just stylized versions of the Batman ostinato, and 2 giant chunks of the action music were used in the film. The section with the new "Rise" theme was used in the Batman & Catwoman tunnel fight, and "Backup" was used several times in the film, just not in that exact style. <br><br>The section after the stylized "Backup" sounds more like rejected Bane material to me, so I'm not entirely sure if that counts. I do agree however that Hans' new climactic version of the 2 note motif should have been included throughout the finale though. Would have resolved the film better than the recycled "LSI Extraction" bit.The "Up is Down" track from POTC3 is used in the "Live" concert as well and it was arranged by Henry Jackman.<br>"Now We Are Free" is in the concert as well and was mainly arranged by Klaus Badelt...@superultramegaa, <br><br>Most of the awesome action material in Moody Bruce, from 4:46-15:03, is unused. Also, the last 5 minutes, with Hans' epic new take on the 2-note Batman theme (which he adds a third note two and concludes in big style) is totally unused. <br><br>@anonymous,<br><br>I actually agree with the observations you're making. Lorne didn't write like that in 2008, really, and the suite does sound like Hans' music, even if I just argued that it's unlikely he'd go that musical direction for this movie. And Hybrid has said... it's his (Hybrid's) opinion. The suite may just be Hans, and Hybrid's not saying differently. Hybrid has even admitted he's been wrong on credits before, so it's not like he's saying these are "the facts." Now that I think about it, the suite was used in HZ Live, so that tells me Hans must have been involved in composing it. Because the concerts really gravitate toward Hans' personal work.

This Soundtrack should be way more popular. It's so good! It's probably because they movie sucked so bad.

Yeah this one tends to get lost in the shuffle. A shame, it's an absolutely wonderful score.

Maybe James Newton Howard is on it, due to the fact that direcor Tony Gilroy worked with him on all his previous projects.

Who is the composer of Upcoming Bourne film?

John reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-08 00:00:00
Alan Silvestri is doing Captain America. It's been confirmed on his Facebook page.

And thank God Powell didn't do The Smurfs! He has had enough bad films on his resume, he doesn't need new ones....

Mario Soundtrack reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-07 00:00:00
I heard that John Powell was busy with the 5 Soundtracks that he had been asked to do. For that reason it has not done either Wiinie the Pooh, the Smurfs or Captain America.
Disney and DreamWorks are now struggling to John Powell.!!

@ *the nameless guy*:
really?! neither imdb nor giacchino's official page confirms that. well, there isn't any composer confirmed, yet. I would be as delighted if Giacchino score it as Powell would, anyway :)

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-07 00:00:00
Torque, it's neither Powell or Silvestri. Michael Giacchino will score Captain America.

I just found this track on youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCh536cpv8E

I think that was a combination of Mars Needs moms and mars needs moms credits suite. Well,although i love the main theme( you done it again powell !!), but there are still many similarities from Powell' other soundtracks that i can found.( Buck winning theme in Ice age 3( this theme can be heard clearly), Some theme from HTTYD, and Ice age 3 credits theme itself). But, still good though.

King Powell!

aldan reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
From the sample, i can conclude that:

-Abduction/trashworld: sounded like Paycheck, Bolt, Hancock, and The bourne soundtrack.
-Enjoy the ride: sounded like a piece from ice age 3, when Buck saved Sid from lava fall.
-Mars needs moms: abstract, can't be defined.
-Gribble's plan: sounded like antz( that whistle part), paycheck, and bolt.
-Milo escapes: sounded exciting, but still has a paycheck theme in it.
-Gribble's plan: abstract, but touching.
-To the surface: Sounded like HTTYD, very much, with a little improvement in it, before it turned into that Paycheck-ish action track.
-to the sacrifice: well, good enough
-transformation: original, well done.
-mars needs moms credits suite: The best of them all. I think this is the main theme.
-martian mambo: sounded like that sid-clan song from ice age 2.

No, powell. You started to act like zimmer. But, still good nonetheless. i hope you can do better on Rio.
But, you're still the man.

@Aldan

The reason why it sounds similar to other Powell stuff its because this is a replacement score. Originally, Hans Zimmer was going to score the movie and he left or was rejected, so they brought in John. And I imagine that with the rush they tracked the movie with previous Powell music.

However, the quality of the orchestra sounds amazing. Can't wait!

John: Hans.. rejected? No way! :-)
It was announced (John Powell scoring this) a long time ago (more than half a year).

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
I don't think Zimmer was rejected. He probably felt that this film is too similar in its musical needs to Megamind. He probably passed it to Powell.

And regarding the similar motifs. I think there is only so much innovation you can come up with, once you score a fair amount of movies of the same genre.

I cannot help but wonder what Powell would have done for a concept like Captain America...

Only for digital download... no Cd for this one, right dudes??

John reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-28 00:00:00
The samples sound extremly good, particularly the string writing. However, I'm hearing too close similiarities to Hancock, Dragon and Ice Age 2.

Despite that, it sounds very very promising!
