Hybrid, yes!wow man, hybrid. this isn't right from you. actually really embarrasing and an absolute no-go from a staff/member of this site to write such a comment. even if it's a joke, this is a shame and sad.I was a bit over the line, I admit. I should have made it clearer that all of that "hottest shit in town" bit was meant purely as a part of my personal opinion regarding his output. I never saw or read any interviews with him. <br><br>I also know about his wife, of course... but I guess I'm just too cynical to accept it as an all-encompasing excuse while seeing such massive fanbase clamoring for his new music. I don't know, I admittedly feel a bit bad about what I'm saying myself. I AM an asshole, sure, but only to an extent. <br><br>I think that saying "he is writing scores that he feels comfortable with" and "living his life however he wants", albeit understandable, is still ignoring the fact that he is an artist with a fanbase. We are living in a time when film composers are slowly getting a mainstream recognition as a type of musicians comparable to bands or singers. And that creates a certain responsibility towards that fanbase. An artist doesn't have to fulfill it, sure, but he should at the very least acknowledge and address it.<br><br>Which brings to mind an image of Hans going on a massive tour whilst giving zero fucks about the CD presentation of his scores, but I digress.<br><br>I wouldn't dare giving Powell advices about how to deal with a pain of the loved one's loss. But on the other hand, I strongly believe in artist's responsibility towards the fans. <br><br>For example, that's why I would kick everybody saying "GRRM is not your bitch" right in the goddamn nuts.Now I have ONE true reason to want this score to win !<br><br>PEACE ! lolI stand corrected. Though it's still possible that the score is a combination of live orchestra and samples, a lot of RCP music does that.
Ds beat me to a few of the points I was going to make, so thanks. :) I'll try to keep this brief, but it won't be.<br><br>Macejko, the only part of your statement that I would 100%, strongly, absolutely disagree with is the "pretentious douche" part. When has he ever "acted like the hottest shit in town"? Do we have any record of him actually refusing assignments? I mean, clearly his output has slowed down since 2012, but why do you act like he's doing that because he thinks he's better than everyone else? I don't see that as pretentious. Especially not given what we know about his personal circumstances. For all we know his decision to take on less work was caused by the knowledge that his wife was sick and wanting to spend as much time with her and with their son as he could. You really still want to call him pretentious?<br><br>Now, what I do agree with is the impression that Powell is no longer really developing as an artist. He's found his niche and is writing scores that he feels comfortable with, but I haven't been "surprised" by anything he's written since probably 2010 or 2011. Is that a problem? Well, depends on what your priorities are. I don't rate innovation as highly as I do music that speaks to me on an emotional level, that I love listening to and want to hear over and over again. And with scores like Pan and HTTYD2 Powell has definitely provided that, while Hans Zimmer for all of the "pushing the envelope" and "breaking boundaries" he's done (or claimed to have done) in the last 7, 8 years has in the process left behind many of the things that made me love his music in the first place. He's written some fine and certainly interesting scores in those years (and some I never want to hear again), but I'd throw out every single one of them to hear another At World's End or King Arthur, just a big old epic larger-than-life fun time that cares more about entertaining you than trying to musically divide by zero or whatever. But now I'm turning this into a Powell vs. Zimmer argument which was never really my intention. :p<br><br>At the same time I can't pretend that it doesn't hurt to see how much Powell has slowed down. I mean his run of form from 2003-2011 is the stuff of legend, 3-4 scores a year in all sorts of different genres, all of it quality stuff. He was pretty much hitting the sweet spot: innovating, developing his style, trying out new things but not sacrificing his voice or the accessibility of his music. If he were to keep up that trajectory for a career spanning several decades he'd be in contention for greatest of all time IMO. Sadly it doesn't look like that's going to happen anymore. I think it's a fair criticism to say he's dropped off, or at the very least leveled out. I just don't think it's fair to call him pretentious for doing so. The man's a human being and he has the right to live his life however he wants.But you know he never said he has nothing to prove. I don't think he even think such a thing, actually he seems like a very humble and nice guy, much like Hans. I just tell you this based on all the great things he did in many genres throughout his career.<br><br>I guess he just want to write music he likes and the way he likes it. Many producers/directors want something more restrained for their movies, that's ok, they can get someone else. If you can afford doing what you like for a living, why the hell would you accept jobs you don't like?<br><br>And SW isn't about "creativity", it's just about this kind of busy orchestral music with lots of frenetic parts which Powell seems to really like these days.If only every annoying film music fan would be so willing to take his own life as this one...If this nominated for golden globe or even Oscar and win the title I'll kill my self.<br><br>This score is nothing compared to interstellar or even to POTC 3.The moment an artist thinks he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead. <br><br>Also, thinking that only animation and Star Wars provide a field for any kind of innovation and experimentation is just ludicrous beyond words, Ds. SW especially is the most musically restricted franchise on the planet.
Fair point. Just look at what Balfe did this year, Lego Batman, Churchill, Genius, The Crown, Geostorm... and all are somewhat different in tone. He was on fire this year for sure.Here is another comparison which to me seems more relevant than yours :<br>Lorne is doing a lot of projects and getting better and better in various styles.<br>And Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity. I'm not saying he doesn't evolve, but at this rate he will need 3 lifes to catch up on Balfe's current level.<br><br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres and is now able to write the music he likes most : crazy orchestral pieces where nothing is forbidden. Today, only animated movies allow this style of scores to exist. And also Star Wars :-pEdmund wrong again !!!!!balfe posted some photos of the recording sessions for the crown^ lol. Harsh, but he’s not wrong. Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion.I must admit I'm starting to think of Powell as sort of a pretentious douche. All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him, and when he finally descends from his golden throne and graces us peasants with a new score for his beloved kiddie animated genre, even then he doesn't handle the majority of the score himself.<br>This might be a fun score, I'm sure it's gonna be, but I'm also pretty sure that it's going to sound like every other Powell score from the last 6 or so years. The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ. Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better.
Wow full credits already.<br>(Quite surprised so many tracks are not pure Powell's)<br><br>Anyway smples on LLL sounds awesome, Powell at its quite best of course.<br><br>That Madrid Finale, omg, classical!I wouldn't want to sully this score's reputation by giving it an award as arbitrary and meaningless as the Oscar!Genuinely mind-blown at this score's under-appreciation...definitely deserved an Academy Award, or a nomination at the very least. One of the greatest film scores of all time.I haven't heard it yet, but the majority of Balfe's scores are done with samples so I wouldn't be surprised at allWas this score recorded with a real orchestra? Sometimes it sounds like it comes straight from a computer. Like Your Majesty for example. Lorne uploaded 2 unreleased tracks btw.

Batman Theme reply Replies: 10 || 2011-04-27 21:43:15
i hope that this here will be released or leaked some how, but is it possible to post here the "Batman Theme" in full until it will be available?


Agent Smith2011-04-27 21:45:20
hell yes, or in the webradio??

Just curious: Is there any way there could be a "King Kong Complete Recording Sessions" by James Newton Howard? The KONG score is one of those complete scores that I would like to have.


FS2011-05-07 16:58:39
yes there are recording sessions leaked (to a small group of persons) for king kong. It has 99 tracks including a thank you speech from james newton howard. A tracklist was already posted somewhere..


yo2011-05-07 17:40:21
the batman theme isnt anything new, its starts with the music when rachel leaves after giving bruce his birthday gift and then continues with second half of the end credits, thats it. just rip the end credits and ul have the batman theme


Anonymous2011-05-07 19:26:25
Not exactly true, its a new track and not a Hybrid. Furthermore either of the two cues you mention are on the OST


Dakota2011-05-07 19:52:34
Ommmm.....can we discuss this "99-track King Kong Recording Sessions" please?!?! I am shocked that nothing to this extent has been released yet. 99 tracks seems a bit steep, but sounds awesome

Whats the Batman theme on disk 3?


vdwebb2011-04-22 19:18:45
From what I gathered from the MP3 extract, it was used in the end credits, at the last two minutes or so.


HZLeaks2011-04-22 20:02:19
Its sounds different to me, a little rough, almost like a demo


Jaynufire2011-04-22 20:27:26
the second half of the track is used as the last 2 minutes of the end credits. However this theme has popped up in a couple Batman Begins special features...

I have a 42 track expanded score but some of the tracks are fan edited and some have sfx in them. I would like to have this b/c I get to listen to the real deal without any crappy fan edits with sfx or dilogs in them and hearing some newer material would be cool too.

Whoever has this decides when it's leaked, not time. It's like since TDK leaked, you guys seem to think this will. Hybrid was right, nobody can be happy. Sure, I love this music but I could certainly live without Batman Begins. Between the commercial and expanded releases, (and TDK complete, since almost everyone has it now) I'll be alright.

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-13 00:00:00
