Bayhem - why are you so worked up about him working or not working on the film ?the fact he did seems to annoy youLorne Balfe didnt work at this score!!!!<br>========================<br><br><br>Correct.Oh if you liked this one, you should see the one way below with Bayhem, Meta and Macejko going at it like crazy<br><br>Pretty sure saying this will make another situation like that.I like how this debate about Lorne Balfe started from me politely asking for artist credits. This is a cool place.Lorne Balfe didnt work at this score!!!!
Exactly Solomon !<br>THe use of the krypton theme in the spaceship scene made this moment more intense and it felt... natural... as if the rest of the music doesnt blend in the atmosphere we were used to with the previous movies.@scarecrow9: Wikipedia says that filming originally wrapped in October 2016, and that Zack was taken off the project in May 2017. That's at least 6 months of post-production, so hopefully yes.<br>@Leonard Dante: You don't think it's disrespect to Snyder that the film bears his name but Whedon cut it up and redid his story with terrible reshoots and replaced his nominated composer?<br><br>Lastly, I will say that I watched the film earlier today and thought it was absolutely terrible. The best part was the few seconds where Zimmer's "Krypton" theme was playing in the scoutship!Hybrid, do you think that the Snyder´s Cut could really exist somewhere? Let alone with Tom´s score, do you think that he even began scoring the film? I would love to see that version. Thank you for your answerBalfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers<br>=================================<br><br><br>Even composers who do one or two movies a year receive help. So it's very, very hard for me to believe that Balfe - with the amount of movies he works on now - is out there by himself, scoring it all by himself. It's simply not possible. And this is the MV/RC world after all. Composers help each other all the time. And many of these collaborations don't even make it to this site. It's very hard to keep track of everything.imo whedon and elfman screwed up the movie, i'd say Zacks original cut would be better, then again thats just me tho
Perhaps. But it would be a disrespect to Whedon and Elfman. Okay. If that means more money on the table, they will.HOPE NEVER DIES.<br><br>Sources confirm this days on social media that Zack Snyder Original Cut of Justice League not only exists, but have VFX's work and Junkie XL's score on it.<br><br>That could be really EPIC.<br><br>The Fight for this can happens is bigger every minute passes, dont lose the faith, not now.Cannot freaking wait!"Balfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers"<br><br>As if. Just look through this site and you'll see additional guys credited for lots of his scores. Max Aruj, Steffen Thum, Thomas Farnon, Andrew Kawczynski on some projects...he's a very busy guy but I promise you he doesn't do every single second of his 15 scores a year on his own.Bayhem - Balfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers though.which films has this small army of ghostwriters ???!!!!!!
You say Balfe worked on the last Transformers(2017). Okay. He may have been called by the Paramount. However, his involvement with the franchise in 2005 and in the following years happened because of the RCP and Zimmer's direct involvement in the project. There in 2005, 2007, 2011, 2014 he was a guest of RCP/MV and no received no call for help of the Paramount. There is no other way.he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter .<br>.....................................<br><br><br>I've asked him a lot of stuff. We're Facebook friends. And yes, I know he worked on the first one. I clearly said it a couple of times in my replies here. He worked on the first one and the second one as well. But if you try to imply that Balfe deserves the credit for these scores, you are way, way off the mark. And it's very disrespectful to Jablonsky. Very.<br><br>Now, clearly you like Balfe a lot. Fine. But please don't undermine a far more experienced and successful composer like Jablonsky, just because Balfe is the "hot MV/RC composer" at the moment. We, the Jablonsky fans, certainly didn't act that way in 2007 when Jablonsky's name was everywhere and people were going crazy for the Transformers score. No one denies that Balfe worked hard on the Transformers films. But he's not the "main guy". Just like a lot of MV/RC composers have worked on HIS scores and they're not the main composers. You think Balfe scores all of his movies alone? Nope. Like any other successful and busy composer out there, he's supported by a small army of ghostwriters.Studio = Paramount and he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter . I did !!!!!!Balfe never worked for Jablonsky =========================================<br><br>By "worked for Jablonsky" I meant he worked ON Jablonsky scores. And as James said, it's all MV/RC anyway. They all know each other and help each other. The first Transformers movie started post-production at the end of 2006. Back then no one knew who Balfe was (aside from the biggest MV/RC fans). His big break arguably came in 2009-2010. Years after the first Transformers movie. So no matter how we spin it, he still came after Jablonsky. Jablonsky is his senior and obviously has much more experience. And we have to respect that. <br><br>That was my point.Should have gotten one for Interstellar, not this.

Ok, I need to know who composed THIS particular piece of music so I can buy him a beer. It's so goddamn good that it's now my ringtone. Can't stop listening to it:

Zanelli variations on a theme by Zimmer


James2017-11-08 16:17:32
Zanelli claim as his:

"I did a lot of writing on this film, much more than I can present here [...]. “Broadside” was a huge action sequence with tons of twists and turns.[...] This cue is also how I got my Pirates nickname; [...] Geoff “Broadside” Zanelli."


Bayhem2017-11-08 20:12:48
Thank you, guys. I just went to Zanelli's site and indeed he is the one who composed this great track. I really thought that it was either Zimmer or Glennie-Smith.....

Anyway, my hat's off to Zanelli for this piece of music. It really pumps you up.


James2017-11-08 21:10:53
Yes, it's one of the best arrangements in the entire saga and, in my opinion, the best of Zanelli with the pieces of Zimmer.

David reply Replies: 6 || 2017-07-25 10:06:41
Question - who had the biggest hand in creating the Jack Sparrow-related theme, the one that plays in the middle of "He's A Pirate"?


badbu2017-07-25 10:37:24
The "Main Theme" is from Hans. Listen to "Pirates, Day One, 4:56 AM"


David2017-07-25 17:11:26
I know that, I mean the part that plays in the middle of the main theme. It wasn't present on the demo.


Hybrid Soldier2017-07-25 18:44:56
Hans... He didn't just write the demo...


David2017-07-26 12:04:49
Don't be so defensive lol, I know that. I was simply asking a question.


David2017-07-26 17:27:30
Who wrote the music in "The Medallion Calls"?


Mandarin2017-07-27 11:15:53
Zimmer, Badelt and Djawadi

Daniel reply Replies: 2 || 2016-05-28 02:13:27
Why is Hans Zimmer credited for almost every track on here? Didn't he only write like 3 demos and then the other composers arranged from them? Why is it fair to credit him on almost all tracks? Or is it that each track he's on is an arrangement or uses the themes he composed in the couple demoes he did? I'm still really confused about the total extent of his involvement with the score, both behind the scenes and actual compositions.


Hybrid Soldier2016-05-28 09:39:56
He didn't "write only demos"... First he only wrote one, and he actually co-wrote a lot of the cues...


Zimson2016-05-28 11:39:18
Thanks for clearing that up. It's a shame Badelt alone got top credit.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2015-03-02 00:30:31

What is a "riff track"?

Mike reply Replies: 11 || 2013-08-01 02:29:57
Where does the Pirates Of The Caribbean Theme (Original Demo) come from? It's different than the 4:56 AM album track. Is the latter just a shortened version or what?


Anonymous2013-08-01 02:36:44
Odd indeed. Just found it today. Sounds like "The Battle" from Gladiator was mixed in with the Day One demo piece.


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 09:01:36
Hans made it "available" on a Soundtrack.net interview for POTC 2 back in 2006.


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 12:48:37
Speaking of that suite, I once asked Hans if it was the only he wrote for that score. Here are some HZ thoughts about POTC (this is "censored" cause some can't just be shared out loud...) :

"No, but if you listen carefully, virtually all the tunes in the movie are arrangements of that... Oh, and the skeleton dance number, but that suite is the cue - with some help from Geoff Zanelli -. Gore and Jerry B. asked me to go home and come up with something. That's why it completely falls apart at the end... I was tired, and couldnt play anymore...

Ramin did a great arrangement of my tune for the sword fight. That got everything going. Geoff Zanelli arranged more music than anybody, some of it really way beyond arrangement. Blake Neely was stuck on - I think - 28 versions of the 'moon' cue... The endtitles - by tradition in all the films - are my suite arranged by Geoff.

I didn't write a Sparrow tune until the second movie. He just had a riff for the first one... Just as a personal joke, I tried to have every character's theme start with the same 3 notes. That got a little confusing. But you have to have fun."


NM2013-08-01 13:08:06
That's really cool Hybrid, thanks. It's interesting to know how the score actually came together, that's really not what comes across from interviews and whatnot. Do you know which themes/tunes Badelt came up with?


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 13:23:24
;)

I've gathered quite some intel on many movies from Hans' more or less effective recollections regarding them !

For Klaus, listen to the whole Fog Bound, it's like a medley of all his themes ! :)


Mike2013-08-01 15:29:05
Thank you, Hybrid. Interesting news and quote. I thought you said a while back that the "tut tut tut" pan flute theme in Fog Bound was Zimmer, though?


Pierre2013-08-01 19:09:05
You say Fog Bound is a medley of Klaus' Themes. However it opens with Zimmer's Jack Sparrow "riff", then there's some atmospheric electronics with a bit of tension building, then the "love theme" or whatever, which is in Hans' original demo. Please explain.


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 19:18:23
No no no I mean the real 5 min Fog Bound...

Not the OST track, which indeed has a Sparrow theme by Hans and at the end the beginning of Smitten Will...


Mike2013-08-01 21:32:15
Oh, by the way, which Black Hawk Down cue/album track did the moonlight serenade scene rip off of?


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 21:56:25
Tribal War.


Pierre2013-08-01 22:02:19
Thanks Hybrid Soldier, I was not aware of an alternative track.

Anyone notice the POTC4 mermaid theme at the beginning of "Liz Meets Barbossa"?


Mr. Fate2013-05-07 00:47:07
I think you might be confusing that with another theme that is found all over the four films and has come in a wide variety of arrangements.


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-07 08:31:44
Careful HZ had the fun to try to make every theme start with the same 3 notes, so it's confusing ! :)


Anonymous2013-05-07 08:37:58
He did?!


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-07 09:16:53
Well, take the POTC Main Theme, the first 3 notes. Then the Jack Sparrow related themes beginnings(Breaking the Chains and Captain Jack Sparrow).

Take Beckett's theme first 3 notes. Then Davy Jones. The Kraken' main melody after that...

Yeah, always the same. Different pitches, same progression... :P


Mr. Fate2013-05-07 13:46:58
So, I'm NOT going crazy after all! When all the sessions surfaced, I started taking a closer look at all the music and started noticing that almost EVERYTHING from Pirates 1 was the same theme!

mind=blown.


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-07 13:48:14
Almost all of P1 is an arrangement of his demo... :)

According the OST credit, "You Best Start Believin' is either by Klaus, Zanelli or Jablonsky.

I have no doubt The Captain's Table & Keep To The Code are Nick Glennie-Smith.

And one last tribute to James McKee Smith who co-wrote some of the best cues of that score. Paycheck in Sacking the Village, anyone ? ;)
