Well here is my last response... this is beyond absurd... & I feel Mr MK is somebody with a weird agenda posing as a fan.  Yes, I AM THE REAL PEDRO EUSTACHE [not somebody "posing" for me] & I truly think this is useless... specially with people impossible to exchange honest, constructive opinions with... Please, whoever MK is, please, before you "tear me down" do your homework, & check out what God has blessed me with [yes, even if you don't believe in him, he is real tome... WHEN I ALMOST COMMITTED SUICIDED AFTER MY DAUGHTER—THREE-YEARS OF AGE— DIED OF BRAIN CANCER, JESUS SAVED MY LIVE, SIR!!  YES, HE IS THAT REAL TO ME... IN SPITE OF YOUR MOCKERY & DISRESPECTFUL SARCASM... you might be surprised… I have composed & performed a 47 minute long, 12 movement concerto for 21 solo wind instruments of the world with Mtro. Gustavo Dudamel & his extraordinary orchestra, for example, in which I perform Raga Todi in a unique 15-hole bansuri built by myself, or when I mix a fugue Bach-style with Spanish “Bulería” Flamenca, or use a “mirror-form” in the Armenian piece in which the actual musical orchestral score—literally!—‘draws’ the silhouette of mount Ararat, the symbol of Armenia, or a 21/8 piece for the Easter-European section that starts with 12 upright basses slapping & doing ‘pizzicato Bartok’, or etc… you get the picture!!…] or recording three times with Mtro John Williams [missed the fourth time just now: “Star Wars VIII” due to being in world tour w Hans,,, (recordings where in May 2 & 4)—besides MANY other movie scores with Hans, John Powell, John Debney, James-Newton Howard, etc... or building more than 100 instruments, including unique instruments that nobody else in the world has, after doing research in acoustics with highly specialized Ph, D’s in flute & wind acoustics like Dr. John Coltman & Dr. Peter Hoekje, for example… & etc, ETC… My point: this is ridiculous!! I do not have to defend myself from such absurdity... Ah, forgot to mention: I just finished a 242 pages long book on "How to Write our Own Cadenzas in Mozart Style", or my studies of “Musical Phenomenology” with Mtro Markand Thakar--disciple of the genius Sergiu Celibidache--or that I have more than 7 years of Symphonic experience, studied Indian classical music with luminaries like Pnd Ravi Shankar—yes, THE legendary, iconic, irreplaceable & historic Ravi Shankar!— & Pndt. Hariprasad Chaurasia... but wait... I'm wasting my time!!… Mr MK might not even know who these geniuses are!… He just thinks I am a "jazz player”… such rubbish!! …And concerning your mockery of the Creator, please do not make public your ignorance in such an obvious way... THE GREATEST MUSICIAN IN ALL HISTORY: J.S. BACH SAID THAT MUSIC EXISTS TO "GLORIFY GOD & TO SUBLIMATE THE HUMAN SOUL'... but of course, you might not even know who J. S. Bach is… So, I will refrain from honoring your absurdly useless, empty, & strangely biased criticism... And no, sorry, I love Hans, BUT HE IS NOT GOD... He is a wonderful human being with great talent & wonderful heart... Only God is GOD--whether you believe on Him or not--May GOD BLESS YOU sir!! I will not waist more of my time in this... Blessings to all!!It's feel like they all look like images they use for merchandise books and magazine's, also the posters look like they are for a movie for children. But that's my opinion. The postes for all other films were fantastic, these feel like a big downgrade. Maybe that's why I don't like them.Great!Hi, how long is the average concert? Specifically the one in the Qudos Bank Aetna, Sydney Olympic Park.The first trailer had a bit of Tessa's music at the start, the second a bit of Lockdown's theme, the big kinda orchestral bit, instead of the electronic braaaaams.
Got a special chance to hear a part of salazar's theme, sounds like a varied version of blackbeard's theme but it fits appropriately, very evil. You all should like it.Woops! Made a typo. <br><br>What was used in the final trailer *wasn't* exactly what ended up being used in the film ;)Sounds like a suite<br><br>And wasn't it only the final trailer that used material from the actual score? It was Lockdown's theme. But what was used in the trailer was exactly what ended up being used in the film.@MrTweedy <br>That is true, and you do get the guitars in "Barbarian Horde" (not sure where else though).<br><br>I have to admit, as revolutionary as Gladiator was at the time, I think it's one of Zimmer's more overrated scores. Not that I necessarily think it's bad, but IMO both Last Samurai and King Arthur show a much stronger balance of themes and action writing, yet unfortunately were never as recognized by the mainstream the same way Gladiator was.That synth in the main theme! I didn't expect that. It's really good.
@mpolonest123<br>Actually, there's a small hint at the "spaniard" guitar theme after the sequence where he escapes his execution (track "Homecoming" on the More Music album).No Transformers Last Knight thread yet so posting here. The official site got updated with a new piece of music, and holy hell, it's amazing!<br>www.transformers movie.com<br><br>Also pretty sure the last trailer's music was from him too, Age of Extinction had his scores on almost every trailer.I like all the posters they released for the film.<br>But if someone don't like them it's fine.<br>I will agree with you Dimitris, I too want the main poster as the cover for the album.Epic score from Harry!https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirates_of_the_Caribbean:_Dead _Men_Tell_No_Tales<br><br>The main poster of the film is the best yes. I hope they put it for the album cover.
Is this poster bad? It's one of the best I have seen.<br><br>https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5560e1bbe4b0cc18bc643 12d/5562957ce4b03107de7ca6ca/58f0476a5016e1685c5e99af/149214 1933102/17015800_10154981836668830_529268610073059017_o.jpgHopefully the artwork looks good, because the posters they released for this film are so bad and ugly.Release date 26th of May, it says under "more details".<br><br>Although maybe you should ask the 704 people who have voted on it already, because they seem to have heard the score!Beautiful musicFirst episode was really good . Lorne's score is amazing and totally different . Looking forward to this score release .

Looks like the sessions are out there! "Thneedville Care Chase" is the film verion of "Thneedville Chase" from the original album. Wonderful score. I hope that someday the complete thing is released (leaked).

The rest of the songs on the Interscope Records album are demos that aren't in the movie.

Interscope Records is also releasing an album of songs from the movie. Almost all of the songs were composed by John Powell, so maybe it merits inclusion on this site.

As for this album, I'm looking forward to seeing what Powell came up with for this film. I definitely think that the source material can lend itself to some good music!


jrej35552012-07-06 00:46:38
Yeah, I also wonder why the Interscope Records isn't on this site.


jrej35552012-07-06 00:48:50
Whoops, I meant to say, "Yeah, I also wonder why the Interscope Records ALBUM isn't on this site."

Paul reply Replies: 0 || 2012-05-14 14:27:19
Another one: Is Powell actually composing Hotel Transylvania? While the movie doesn't look very good, it could be an opportunity for a very fun score!

And what's up with IMDb suddenly adding all these crazy credits to John?? (Like Cloudy 2 and Smurfs 2)

Paul reply Replies: 1 || 2012-05-04 16:27:44
Does anybody know if Powell is actually doing that new Pixar movie entitled "The Good Dinosaur"? It's been on his IMDb page for so long that it could be true...


Blu2012-05-04 18:19:45
IMDb had listed Powell as the composer of the Toy Story short film (Hawaiian Vacation) for some time (way after it's release, in fact) until his name was replaced (fairly recently actually) with Mark Mothersbaugh. So it's probably not the best place to get precise information on upcoming composer projects, especially those with release dates set way in the future.

I'd welcome a Pixar/Powell collaboration, nonetheless.

funeral for a tree uses a tune from another song, what is it? its some sort of irish folk sad song I think.


jrej35552012-04-01 01:21:09
The piano tune is from the song "Let it Grow," which is also written by John Powell for the film. (Plus, I'm definitely no expert on Irish folk music, but I thought "Let it Grow" was supposed to be slightly gospel.)

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2012-02-28 21:44:15
Bought the soundtrack from iTunes today. It's a pretty interesting, and sometimes strange, melange of instruments and styles, but it still has John Powell written all over it. Some of the piano and female vocals are especially lovely! A very fun and engaging score which conveys a lot of diverse moods! My favorite tracks are "Ted, Audrey and the Trees," "Truffula Valley Fantasy," "Valley Exodus," "Thneedville Chase," and "Funeral for a Tree."

Samples anywhere?


Indiana2012-02-22 15:26:40
On colosseum.de, there are some samples.
Enjoy!


jXe2012-02-22 23:13:04
@#$%!!!!!!!!! after hearing the samples, it will get a lot of playing time! Go John!


Paul2012-02-22 23:39:51
I don't know... I'm a Powell fan and all, but something is not clicking with me, at least from the samples...

I'll wait for the full CD to judge it, though.


powellfan2012-02-23 12:50:49
Does his oldness make him weaker?

The theme for Truffula Valley, which i expected to be great just like Jungle Nool's theme, is simply not great at all , too much like Elfman's.

And then for the song, i know he had tried so much, but here is what happens:
-Thneedville song really reminds me of that song from Just Visiting
-The music for the Once Ler's song is simply awful.


Anonymous2012-02-24 07:27:06
I hope John Powell sticks with animation, his compositions shine with them. Live action scores have too much control and are too narrow for a colorful pallet that John Powell needs.


Prott2012-02-24 11:29:37
Anonymous: That's not always the case - he managed to compose great scores for both animation and live action (The Last Stand, Paycheck). .-)


Anonymous2012-02-24 21:40:45
I am not saying he cant do it, and do it well he does..I am just saying, his best work is expressed in his animated films. My opinion of course. :0)


Prott2012-02-25 00:24:59
Ok... :)

Here, but for the song album...

www.amazon.com/Dr-Seuss-Lorax-Original-Picture/dp/B0079W6LMI /ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1329476058&sr=8-4

Most of the songs are by Powell though.

Paul reply Replies: 0 || 2012-02-10 00:23:27
The mature track titles sound very intriguing and hopefully could contain some great music. I'm really intrigued for Funeral for a Tree, for example...
