I'd love to see Hans do another historical epic, for the record. I'm sure he'd say he's moved on from that sound, but personally, I miss it. That being said, Harry Gregson-Williams did good work here. Even if he then copied and pasted whole sections for Narnia. lol.Music editors loved their Gladiator temp too muchWhat was the reason of their swap? Why did Hans Zimmer quit Kigdom of HeavenHybrid wrote somewhere here that something happened between Streitenfeld and Ridley during Prometheus,and that was why HG-W was brought on for some rescoringI 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.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.

The awesome end music is missing AND there are tracks that aren't even in the movie... Wtf??


theeaglesfan0052012-03-22 18:04:56
all these tracks are in the movie...

The ending music is in there

15. Alpha
16. Into The Fray


Ds2012-03-23 12:45:04
No. I finally found it. The ending music is "The City Surf" by Jamin Winans, from the "Ink" soundtrack.

I don't think the track "Alpha" appears in the movie...


theeaglesfan0052012-03-23 18:37:05
i'm pretty sure Alpha is in the movie..


Hybrid Soldier2012-03-23 19:48:43
Yes it is, eaglesfan... Ds has just drunk a bit too much lately !


Ds2012-03-23 23:17:54
And where in the movie? I've only seen it one time, but the ending is on youtube, and the ending music is "The City Surf", and not "Alpha".


theeaglesfan0052012-03-24 00:47:26
Alpha & Into The Fray are the ending songs...


Adrian2012-03-25 11:23:30
I think he saw this youtube film:
youtube.com/watch?v=g3gDTC_7IF4&feature=related

Youtube user states that the end could have been better - implies this is an edit. A good one though. The track used here is indeed the City Surf from Ink, amazing track. It's impressive, because Ink was 'just' and indie film.


Ds2012-03-25 11:55:00
The user wrote: "What an ending to a film could of ended a lot better". He speaks about the film & story, not about the music. There are other vids of the ending scene, they all have "The City Surf". When the film is out on dvd i'll try to find where in the movie is "Alpha".


Ds2012-06-08 13:03:28
@eaglesfan, Hybrid & Adrian: finally got the movie, the ending music is definitely "The City Surf".

Is it possible that Alpha is an alternate version?


Mike2012-12-20 07:31:40
To be honest I think Alpha should have been used instead. I like it better.

In the final sequence (min. 01:42:30 to 01.44.40) the track:
15. Alpha (2:16)
Not is corret because the piano not here.

Thanks!


Lambegue2012-08-27 20:16:15
I think the music you are speaking of is "The City Surf" : it's a re-use of a music from the movie Ink. You can find it quite easily on youtube


Seby2012-10-06 18:21:29
Thank you very much!
Nice, a pretty song!

I need the soundtack of the movie: "If Only" (Score)

If anybody is interested, here is my review of Streitenfeld's music:

http: //www.tracksoun ds.com /reviews/the_grey_marc_streitenfeld.htm

tl;dr - it's an effective score, but not one that makes for a particularly nice album.

You should attempt to remove the spaces from the hyperlink first.

I can only say that more than likely the only tracks needed from this score are the final 3...Memorial, Alpha and Into to Fray...The rest pretty much are filler. I dunno. None of those other tracks stood out to me.

Oh man such a fantastic score! One of Streitenfeld's best to date! Bravo!

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2012-01-29 07:26:38
Saw the movie on Friday--excellent!

The score was very stark and minimalistic, in keeping with the snowy environs. There was a recurring theme or two, but nothing readily hummable. "You Are Gonna Die" has some very nice strings, and there's a great Trevor Rabin-esque piano motif in "Alpha." Things also get much tenser on tracks like "Eyes Glowing" and "Running From Wolves." Overall, an atmospheric score which effectively underlines the emotions onscreen.
