Anyone know of a proper chronological listing of this score? I tried cross-referencing it with the expanded listed here and made this:<br><br>01 Dublin, 1996<br>02 <br>03 <br>04 <br>05 Second Warning<br>06 Research<br>07 Driving<br>08 The Beating<br>09 Traynor Lies<br>10 Never Show Your Fear<br>11 Preparations<br>12 The Killing<br>13 Bad News<br>14 The Funeral<br>15 One More Day<br><br>But I have no idea where Conversations, First Warning, and Deceit goes, and I'm not sure if Traynor Lies and Driving are placed correctlyif you read my first sentence you can see I dismisded this rumor as crap<br>..................<br><br>Fair enough....But look back on the comment itself. It's kinda confusing. The way you wrote it created the illusion that Lorne not only ghostwrote the score, but he also dismissed it as crap. You didn't say "I dismissed the rumor". You said: "...a rumor stating that Lorne Balfe ghostwrote this score and dismissed it as crap." <br> <br><br>Anyway, moving on.....<br><br>Steve was interviewed a lot about The Last Knight and it's pretty obvious that he worked hard on that score. From the day they started shooting the movie. Was he supported by other composers? Absolutely. You can't score such a huge movie by yourself. Any composer who claims that is lying.<br><br>So there's nothing shocking or surprising about the fact that other composers were involved here. As for them being "Lorne's people"......well, considering how MV/RC-related composers work and how interconnected everything is, the "Lorne guys" could very well be friends with Steve too and perhaps he simply brought them on board. Or they were recommended by Lorne. It certainly doesn't mean that there was this top secret plan of them and Lorne actually ghostwriting the entire score. I still wonder tho......how do these rumors even come up? Who spreads them? And why? I ask because this is not the first time I've heard rumors about Zimmer scores and Jablonsky scores. It's always these two guys. Which happen to be two of the most prominent and popular MV/RC guys. Coincidence? Not to sound like a conspiracy nut, but it kinda makes me think that someone is intentionally trying to undermine the biggest MV/RC names by constantly throwing shade at their work."Deserving" is a word that doesn't exist in Hollywood, so stop thinking that way... lolThe problem I have with Junkie XL scoring Avatar is just that there are so many RCP composers better or more deserving. You have Zimmer, Powell, Gregson-Williams, Mancina, Jackman, Wallfisch...it is just so wrong to think Junkie XL is scoring Avatar and none of those guys are.I think that Tim Miller played a greater role in case of Terminator and Sonic. And I really don't see Junkie as good choice for Avatar 2.
@Edmund <br>I still stand by my opinion that Holkenborg scoring Avatar 2 could be pretty interesting. Pairing him up with a director who is known to be strict with his musical choices and continuing on from James Hornerís classic might produce something really good. And seeing his gradual progress as a composer with Mortal Engines and Alita have personally given me some hope (2 years ago I would have said hell no).<br><br>And Iím not surprised by the choice for T6. Not looking forward to this project at all but we did get a cool score from Balfe for the last one so maybe there is some hope for the music at least.I think Terminator is a decent match for JXL's talents (listen to "The March" from Divergent), but this feels like further evidence that James Cameron is grooming him for Avatar 2, which I really hope ends up not being the case.Yes, Tom will be scoring the new Terminator movieChill out Bayhem, if you read my first sentence you can see I dismisded this rumor as crap.<br>But seeing people from his team ivolved and considering the fast and furious situation, I canít help but wondering if thereís some truth to that rumor.<br>Now for a guy talking about haters, saying that Lorne scores 36million projects and B movies (forgetting mission impossible) I think youíre pushing it a bit.<br>Anyway no hate I donít care who wrote it Iím just curious about the behind the scenes stuff.You're reaching there a bit Bayhem, I see no one in this thread trying to undermine Steve's work or the score. Hell the first poster was just asking if Lorne worked on it and if so, to what extent. And the "rumor comment" is a logical extension of Lorne's whole regular team being credited on the score, therefore it is possible that he did additional work on it.
Again a "rumor" comment that's trying to undermine Steve's work. And in this case, an entire score. Lorne fans, please stop trying to constantly undermine other composers in favor of your guy. It's childish and extremely disrespectful. You've done it multiple times on these boards. What's next? You gonna claim that Lorne secretly scored the entire Transformers franchise? And Lord of the Rings. And Harry Potter. <br><br>Seriously, it's getting really old, really fast. <br><br>Not to mention the fact that Steve, as a composer, is much, much more experienced and established than Lorne. He's got nothing to prove. Steve takes his time when it comes to scoring. He's choosing carefully. He's got more than enough time to focus on his projects. While Lorne's name is attached to 30 million different projects, some of them cheap B-movies like Hurricane Heist. And you think he's scoring them all by himself? The irony of it all is that if anyone is using ghostwriters most of the time, it's Lorne. Not Steve. And I'm saying that as a Lorne fan as well. I'm not just a Jablonsky fan. I appreciate Lorne's work as well. But I'm not undermining other composers in favor of him.Bay has Lorne scoring his films now cause they established a relationship on 13 Hours, and Bay didn't even want Lorne for that; he wanted Hans but he didn't want to go through the exhausting process of another Bay blockbuster so he brought in Lorne instead.<br>And even then, Hans still worked together with Lorne very closely on the project (Hybrid said he was there for all the meetings, helped with synth programming, etc)Of cause Balfe worked on it .That is why Bay now uses Balfeyou can absolutely hear the 13 hours temp track in Battlefield and We Have to GoNot to mention that Steve and Lorne structure their power anthems differently.<br>To me this score sounds like 100% Steve
I wouldn't say so, Lorne stacks his ostinatos and rhythms on top of each other (see Blackwood, Last Man on the Moon) and shotguns piano writing all over his scores in addition to using it for almost any kind of emotional scene (see Manny, Duck Shoot, Brothers Theme from Hurricane Heist)Well, if all we're using to distinguish Lorne is ostinatos and piano writing, then in that case, he's all over this film!The interesting thing is, that if Lorne did work on it, his work is indistinguishable from Steve's cause I hear none of his ostinatos or extensive piano writing.@Hybrid, a while ago I saw a rumor stating that Lorne Balfe ghostwrote this score and dismissed it as crap.<br>But looking at the credits I see some people from his team have been involved( his assistant Queenie Li as music coordinator, and Max Aruj and Steffen Thum did arrangements..)<br>Do you know why and to which extent he was involved or why his team worked on the score?This little gem of a score is one of my favourites of Lorne's smaller projects.<br>Got a great main theme and varying instrumentations of it throughout, plus he's using a real orchestra which is always good. (Check out The Heist, very upbeat jazzy piece)

Will the soundtrack for the third season be released?


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-07 23:52:39
As Ramin pointed on Facebook, the soundtracks for GOT Season 3 & Pacific Rim are in the works.

GOT should be release this summer (Var&#232;se, probably :)).

Pacific Rim will be released on July the 8th by WaterTower.


Macejko2013-05-08 16:12:46
That's good news, but after 6 episodes I don't think there even is much of new music to release...


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-08 16:15:33
Oh the ending of the episode 6 had quite some great moments ! :)


Macejko2013-05-08 16:42:01
Yeah, that melody was quite nice, but as much as love Ramin's music, I think that particular scene could have been handled better, musically speaking.
What I really liked was the rendition of Theon's theme during the scene of him being chased.
Also I'm not sure what to think about the rendition of Daenerys' theme playing at the end of episode 4. I think I understand what was Ramin going for, but it sounded somehow forced and inappropriate.
And again, I really liked the melody playing during Catelyn's confession about Jon Snow.
Overall, I'm indecisive about Season 3 music so far. It heavily relies on music from last two seasons (using Theon's theme at the execution of Rickard Karstark was a huge let down - it didn't make any sense to use that music there other than it was another execution), and when there is new music, it's usually a rendition of an older theme or it's something not really memorable. And I say this as a person who absolutely adores Ramin's work basically on everything.


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-08 22:19:14
Glad you brought up the Karstark thing, Macejko. Biggest musical facepalm since the Nazgul theme popped up in The Hobbit.


Macejko2013-05-08 22:41:06
Edmund: Yes, but concerning The Hobbit, it is known that the music used in the film itself is different from the music on the soundtrack CD. For example - there is no Nazgul/Mordor theme on the CD. Also, the main theme, which can be heard during almost every action sequence in the movie, is present only twice on the soundtrack. I'm not sure whose decision that was, but there are many differences between those two.
As for GoT, it's not hard to imagine that Ramin would indeed composed something new for that execution scene, but the creators (or the producers, or music supervisor) simply wanted to use the old stuff, just because it worked perfectly in similar scene. But of course, it doesn't make it any less disappointing.
I would love to find out that Ramin indeed composed new music and it was just replaced with the old stuff, but I don't think it's happening.


Macejko2013-05-22 21:29:02
Ramin posted on his Facebook that the release date for the Season 3 soundtrack is June 4th (digital version, physical release to follow).

A really nice interview with Ramin, mostly about his phenomenal work on Game of Thrones.

I really like Game of Thrones but the opnnieg credits are the worst thing, in my opinion. It's not the music: that's great and powerful. It's the visuals that are completely unfit. For one, it's computer graphics that you can't mistake for anything else, even if it's hi-res. And then it speaks of clockwork, mechanisms and machinery, which are the things that are farthest from what this series is about. Perhaps the authors' intention was to depict the scheming, but that is far-fetched and still makes it feel completely out of place.
