Well, considering there's a lot more advanced orchestral writing in a lot of Transformers: The Game (which was composed by Jablonsky and Flood), than in many of Steve's other projects, I can't help but feel the more advanced stuff here was Flood too. Plus Flood's contribution to "Flying Battle" in D-War kind of makes him seem like the more advanced orchestra composer.Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: <br><br>Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)<br>Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)<br>Wonderland (Mark Theme)<br><br>Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.Some credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: Flashback, and Flying Battle<br><br>Sadly no credits for Pieter A. Schlosser that I've been able to find...
The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite. <br><br>It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.<br><br>I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door. <br><br>Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.
Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there MikealTypical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>
so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.Heh, if it's anything like the 1994 score, then you'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.

Hello, friend. I've been looking everywhere for the whole translation of God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi... Can you help me out with that? also, is it very expensive to travel to the Solomon Islands? how can I go there?

I'm looking for Jisas Yu Holem Hand Blong Mi, but not the choir, the score.
Appears at the begining of the film, before the ship
(Witt is looking the members of the island)
Anybody knows if exist a complete score or something like that in which appears?

Thank you very much!!!

Jesus is watching over me wherever I may go he is right beside me
Jesus is watching over me no matter what I do his love will never cease

Jesus is watching over me wherever I may go he is right beside me
Jesus is watching over me no matter what I do his love will never cease

My savior and my king are beside me all the best things he has provided me
He is there to comfort and guide me and his love will never cease

Jesus is watching over me wherever I may go he is right beside me
Jesus is watching over me no matter what I do his love will never cease

Q: Could you post the original lyrics and english translations of God, yu tekem laef blong me and Jisas Yu Holem Hand Blom Mi? (from Nezzalar in Spain)
A:

Jisas, yu holem hand blong mi
Tekem long blong mi antrane quaia for yu
Hitlas huayebe gusa ki
long lis hala waala conyi kaiai for yu - hee eeh

Jisas, yu canda yira huu-huu-huu
hinte querri hissa huu-huu-huu
Fracissas ni canda hirla huu-huu-huu
hinte querri hissa

Bolwa yu candai quero yu
for sethe santayu for ya-for sis for mi
Wosre yu rere hi for her
rara efisuah en gus rasor

Jisas, yu canda yira huu-huu-huu
hinte querri hissa huu-huu-huu
fracissas ni canda hirla huu-huu-huu
hinte querri hissa

The Pijin lyrics for "Jisas Yu Holem Han Blong Me" floating around the internet are incorrect. It looks like someone just typed sounds they heard from the recording. I speak Solomon Pijin; here are the correct lyrics and translation:

Jisas yu holem han blong mi (Jesus, hold my hand)
Yu tekem han blong mi (take my hand)
Aba mi kraeaot fo yu (Abba, I cry out for you)
Yu nao faen evri gud samting (You find every good thing)
Long disfala wol (in this world)
Aba mi kraeaot fo yu (Abba, I cry out for you)

Jisas mi kam long yu nao, uuu (Jesus, I come to you now)
Yu tekem mi distaem, uuu (Take me now)
San Jisas mi kam long yu nao, uuu (Son Jesus, I come to you now)
Yu tekem mi distaem (Take me now)

Baba mi daon tenk yu long yu (Abba, I humbly thank you)
Fo sendem San blo yu fo dae fo sins blong mi (for sending your Son who died for my sins)
Waswe i re-redi fo hem (So I will be ready for him)
Baba hem i kam, mek yu dae fo (Abba, he will come again)

Jisas mi kam long yu nao, uuu (Jesus, I come to you now)
Yu tekem mi distaem, uuu (Take me now)
San Jisas mi kam long yu nao, uuu (Son Jesus I come to you now)
Yu tekem mi distaem (Take me now)

I'm kind of amazed by the overwhelming sonority of the melanesian choirs and especially the song Jisas Yu Holem Hand Blong Mi...

I'd wish to sing this song in our school choir upon occasion of the graduation farewell church service and I 've been looking desperately for its lyrics so far...

Is there any possibility to find or purchase the lyrics or even the notes?

thank you very much:)
