Oh wait... SCALPEL AND HAMMER is a combinations of two cues and I AM THE STORM is sort of in the middle :DFYI: <br><br>I AM THE STORM comes after SCALPEL AND HAMMER. <br><br>Gotta get my hands on the physical copy. Curious to hear the bonus tracks.He wants to compose for movie with good story.. retirement from superhero genre is just to chase Away justice league executives.. by the way how is HZ and JXL still buddies?I think he just wanna compose movie with good story.. now we know why he said he is retiring from superhero genreYeah, I didn't think that comment through. Hybrid, feel free to leave this chain up so my shame is forever on display.
Yeah Ben Wallfisch sure sounds a LOT like HZ !<br><br><br>#facepalmyeah I feel like it's been days, weeks even since the last oneDoes Hans really hire people with similar styles to him? Or do the people hired by him end up developing (or being asked to write in) a similar style to Hans'?Could you repeat that, but in legible English this time?Yes, but usually Hans hires people with similar styles to his, or promising new composers. Paesano fits the former fairly well in a lot of ways. I'm just saying it's surprising to me that he's never worked here.
"RCP" is not a "style", it's a place...Kind of shocking to me that John Paesano isn't a member of RCP. Marvel's Spider-Man is basically a more consistent version of this score in many ways with a touch of Danny Elfman's Spider-Man elements.so glad to see HZ back to the superhero genreso great to watch this new interview. it confirmed how i felt about wonder woman and widows. it is the right thing to do.<br><br>Hans's comment on losing his voice took me by surprise though. dunkirk touched on a few techniques i wanted to see explored more. i know other composers did it before. but i think dunkirk did a better job at putting those elements together... hopefully there is be a similar movie in the near future : )Steve is clearly spending time with his family. He had a second child just a few months ago. I think he will eventually be back on the Bay Train. <br><br>And Lorne is the right choice for a "replacement". He's been involved in one way or another with the Bay movies for more than 10 years now. He's certainly not a surprising choice and I'm looking forward to the score. It's a movie that takes place all over the world, so I have big expectations for the music.
Hans says he worked so hard to get WW1 to Rupert, but didn't he also recommend that they try a female composer?Balfe has constantly been brought in on Transformers movies , so great to see him working with Bay properlyApparently were in the wrong country :( If I could afford it, Id travel just to experience this.Lorne is now listed on IMDB and Wiki as the composer of 'Six Underground'. Clearly Bay likes working with him. Good for Lorne.You're absolutely right. Play's over. Exit's that way. On your feet. Go!<br><br>Good knowing you.

There's a new Ice Age movie and John isn't scoring it:(


0-^-02015-12-16 20:05:50
Who is scoring it then?


Edmund Meinerts2015-12-17 09:56:17
imdb currently lists Mark Mothersbaugh, but we'll see what ultimately happens. If it isn't Powell, I'll be a little disappointed too, but honestly, after three of these, I don't think there's much more he could have done with the franchise. Continental Drift already felt largely like a work on autopilot. It's far more important we make sure not to lose him on HTTYD3. :)


Scorefan2015-12-17 20:09:38
I think Mark is a good choice. I like his score for lego movie. I think if Powell doesnt return for the 5th movie, Mark can make a great score.


Edmund Meinerts2015-12-17 23:22:44
I hope it's more Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs than Lego Movie (the latter was a little too hyper even for me), but yeah, Mothersbaugh can write fun music. He feels like a good, if slightly "obvious", pick if Powell's not available. I suppose it's too much to hope for him to keep Powell's themes, though (and it's not like Powell kept David Newman's, so it's only fair :p ).


Scorefan2015-12-19 16:09:43
i agree with you Edmund, David Newman would come back for another installment. The first score was great, with great themes, just remember the music from the opening scene.


scart2016-03-27 23:03:26
Confirmed!! John Debney scoring Ice Age: Collision Course. Oh, well.


Edmund Meinerts2016-03-28 08:35:54
I consider that a small step up from Mothersbaugh. Should be a fun score, even if it's not quite the same without Powell. I do wonder if he will keep Powell's themes - I know Powell didn't keep Newman's, but that was after only one movie and now there have been three for viewers to get used to Powell's.

Based on the sample, a usual comeback from Mr. Powell.

I hope imdb is true, that JP will score Pixar's Good Dinosaurs ( Dreamworks starts to not using RCP's composer, well, pixar is on the contrary )


Edmund Meinerts2013-04-11 23:10:37
Thomas Newman has been announced on The Good Dinosaur. Unfortunately for me, because I don't think there's anyone better at animated scores than Powell. :(


aldan2013-04-12 08:38:13
That's a pity though, i really expected that to happen. I mean what i can learn, Powell is simply story-oriented guy, if the story is good, then the score will be equally good (HTTYD, Bolt, Happy Feet, Chicken Run, Antz, etc.). And Pixar, as we know, create......

And what is even worse, Powell's next scores after a year of hiatus wil be sequels...., i really want to hear new original music from him.

But Thomas Newman back to animation is also a pleasant news (personally, his best scores are indeed from animated movies, Wall-e, and Finding Dory,uhm...Nemo)

Is this song by Powell?

If it's by Powell it must be on the album (the song "Food Glorious Food" from Ice Age 2 was on the soundtrack album)


Andrew2012-07-31 06:04:17
Food Glorious food wasn't composed by JP. it is from the musical "Oliver!" (i actually just recently found this out) he did, however, do the arrangement and obviously some lyrics were changed

Well, if Zimmer disappoints, we'll have at least a great soundtrack in July :D

Looks very nice! In comparison to the 3th movie, there are less tracks, but longer ones: perfect!
