Nop, you're not the only one.<br><br>I can say everything i listen John Powell is something with quality and personality.<br><br>How to Train Your Dragon is one of his best. You are missing out. <br><br>But I may be the only person who thinks Face/Off is one of his best scores. I love that score more than nearly any John Powell scores.I'm agree thatThey are independent events, but I think they are working in conjunction with each other. I based this on the description on the Vienna website. Their program is called The World of Hans Zimmer and some of the arrangements will be written by Zimmer himself. That leads me to believe this year's gala is a bit different and is just a stop for Zimmer's tour.Probably not. The two are indepedent events.
@Edmund<br><br>actually i wasn't interested in the Dragon scores...or Pan, for that matter. Xmen 3 wasn't too bad, but he still had that tight RCP score techniques...Yeah, I think he must have changed his methods since Hancock/Green Zone...Because I'm not interested in hsi work after that. Must be those pesky drums he doesnt use anymore?Yeah, I know there's more than just the main theme in those Trek scores, I was just exaggerating to make a point. :pPretty sure the reason HGW works with Washington so often is because Tony Scott worked with him so often... :pWait, Meta, you haven't liked Powell since Hancock? This despite putting out his career peak in the How to Train Your Dragon scores? I mean, if there's anything that proves he's got the chops for Star Wars style orchestral and thematic music, it's those two (and X-Men: The Last Stand, and Pan).Excellent score!  Reminds me of pieces of The Rock, BHD, Drop Zone, stuff from The Pacific.  Great job Andrew!  Nice themes!  Fun RCP stuff!
Yes it was announced a while back, Harry returns !I can confirm that he is working on it.I'm waiting for Harry's response for returning for the sequel or not? My opinion is, I think Harry seem like working with Denzel Washington often in the movies like Man Of Fire, Deja Vu, and The Taking Of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable, The Equalizer, I think Antoine Fuqua director should hire him back again, but I don't know if his schedule conflicts with busy working with MEG Score.@superultramegaa and others<br><br>Honestly, if you take an objective look back, you can still see RC written all over Powell...And thats all well and good, because I like Powell. Well, maybe not since Hancock, but I like his style.<br><br>That being said, This will be the official first Star Wars outing with an RC score. Sure, Williams phoned in a theme...But going forward I expect RC influence to be the norm.<br><br>And, as for Giacchino...Jesus Christ. For someone who practically MADE his career apeing Williams (Jurassic Park and Medal of Honor video games spring to mind), his Rogue One was  dreadful...I cant disagree with you. <br><br><br>Powell is heavily influenced by Zimmer. The only thing that differs him from the others is that he really has a style of his own that matches the traces of the career he shared with Zimmer. If you listen to any of your action scores, you will notice that they are clearly RCP scores. Even the orchestral, especially "Pan" have some passages that are very reminiscent of Pirates, Prince of Egypt and Gladiator.
Really awesome "Is She With You?" cover by Nir Shor!Hey Hybrid Soldier, is Harry returning for the Sequel??Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.I wasn't saying Powell sounds like Williams. I'm saying he's closer in sound to Williams than he is to Zimmer for his animated movies.While John Powell is usually far more melodic and classical than your usual RCP composer, I don't see the Williams similarity. His music doesn't really sounds like Williams' scores. But I think he is perfect for Star Wars. I am much more excited about this than Giacchino's Rogue One.

Just wondering out of curiosity if the credits for these Tyler scores that use additional guys from RCP will ever be known. Like Margeson on this one and Battle: LA, or Todd Haberman on Rambo. Any clues, Hybrid?


Hybrid Soldier2013-11-02 18:32:02
No because Tyler rarely gives royalties...

A couple cues from Rambo (The Compound if my memory doesn't suck) are credited Haberman.

Matt did a LOT of the action stuff on Battle LA & Expendables 1.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-02 18:37:33
He doesn't give royalties? Is that even legal? It would certainly explain how he's able to do so many scores in a year...sheesh.

Not surprised to hear about Margeson; Skyline sounds so much like a Tyler score it isn't even funny. :p


Hybrid Soldier2013-11-02 19:07:23
Of course it's legal...

I mean, all the credits I get are basically royalties sheets (cuesheet).

The thing is around RCP it's common to have detailed things, but they are not "forced" to do so. It's just the local culture. And it's not shared all around the non RCP guys.

I just checked Tyler's Iron Man 3 cuesheet and of course he's solo credited there. No money for Halli Cauthery, Stu Thomas, Tony Morales, Sarah Schachner or R. Lydecker... Of course they get paid (contract) when they work with him, but they won't get any other money in the future. That's the way it is...


Frank2013-11-03 02:13:44
Speaking of Tyler, am I the only one who found that the main theme of Thor The Dark Word is pretty similar to the opening title of Contender?


Mike2014-05-02 19:08:30
I did as well, Frank. That was my first thought upon hearing it.


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-02 19:15:55
The theme from Thor 2 is so derivative it's not even funny. Besides The Contender it also reminds me of Tyler's own Children of Dune...and it's based on a four-chord progression that he has used in practically every score he's ever done.

Actually Brian scored the first 5 episodes with help by Matt, and Matt scored the last 5 on his own... :)


Mr. Charles2012-03-07 19:12:19
So then are there credits available for who did each track Hybrid? Or is it too early?


Mr. Fate2012-03-07 21:18:47
Remember, you can find the credits just as easily as Hybrid. He gets them from ASCAP or some other site that has a similar function...At least, that's what I remember him saying elsewhere. I wouldn't think Hybrid has access to much more of that sort of info than any one of us does.
