Olive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!
I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.
Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>I’m in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally don’t pay attention to the music unless it’s really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestri’s Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately it’s surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like that’s something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because he’s had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmer’s material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.
@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...

Hybrid, can you upload more unreleased stuff from Atli?

Hybrid Soldier2014-06-06 13:04:57
Like what ?

I mean, I have one rule => 1 cue per project per composer...

So far I think Atli's career is represented quite well ! :)

Anos 2014-06-06 20:57:38
Maybe 2 tracks per Project per Composer?
Like Vantage Point from Atli & one unreleased cue from Henry for Vantage Point?
Because I love Atli's Music from Vantage Point & Hansel & Gretel!!

Lambegue2014-06-07 13:34:21
As much as I understand your desire to have more music, you musn't forget that it takes a lot of time to upload it : Hybrid has been working on it during a long time, and it's not finished yet...So one track per project is alreaddy good :)
Plus, if you love Atli so much, you can still buy his albums.

Hybrid Soldier2014-06-07 14:11:25
Yeah and composers agree with that... My point is not to put the whole scores streaming here... It's a showreel for composers...

FeSe reply Replies: 2 || 2013-07-15 23:24:43
Complete Score please

thejok3rrules2013-07-15 23:38:24
I second this... I don't know why, but I loved the score, even tough I know it was kind of a mess... Well, I guess it happens! I did like Iron Man too, so... :p

T-Mann0362014-01-18 22:14:10
I third that!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 2 || 2013-04-24 15:10:27
And credits for that one ! :)

Hybrid Soldier2013-04-24 17:21:44
And if you want chronological for that one (rough though, some tracks are made of cues not from the same scene, like Trolls Serve Witches) :

Don't Eat The Candy
The Witch Hunters
Business Is Good
White Magic
Lost Children Crying, Vol 2
Augsburg Burns
This Place Could Use A Bit Of Color
You Do The Bleeding
Trolls Serve Witches
Beautiful Story, Don't You Think?
There Are Good Witches In The World
Burn 'em All
Shoot Anything That Moves
Goodbye Muriel
The Fairy Tale

Much better listen imho (as always...)

Jeckyl2013-08-01 00:19:32
Theres a track after the song "the fairy tale" in the movie, it plays on the credits just at the end and lasts for 2:27 an instrumental song with a single female choir. You wouldn't happen to know whats the name of the song?

Macejko reply Replies: 1 || 2013-02-13 14:44:33
It has no soul. It's only loud as hell.

Stéphane Panchaud2013-02-13 15:05:24
Merci pour toutes votre attention, je sais que ma demande n'a pas trop de chance, je serrai tr&#232;s heureux de travailler pour vous, je suis un compositeur indépendant, je vis en Suisse &#224; Lausanne, j'ai quelque musique de films a mon actif, et beaucoup beaucoup de composition, ma passion et la musique, je compose depuis mon tr&#232;s jeune ages, pour moi la musique et comme un voyage dans un pays que je découvre et qui me réserve des surprise &#224; chaque pas.

Je vous envoies toutes mes meilleurs salutations musicales.

Bien &#224; vous

Mr. Qwertz Production.

And the Atli one we were talking about ! :)

Ds2013-01-09 00:44:36
Yeah! Didn't know Hans worked on it, it's great.

Edmund Meinerts2013-01-09 12:45:36
It will be similar to Henry Jackman's crap for "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter".

Cloud2013-01-09 13:10:56
I hope this will be at least on par with Season of the Witch, which had some pretty great moments.

Edmund Meinerts2013-01-09 14:43:27
Hey, Hybrid, can I have colored text too? Because that sure as hell isn't me. I kind of liked Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, actually.

Anyways, looking forward to this. Atli's underrated. :)

Hybrid Soldier2013-01-09 15:50:04
Sorry it's for team only ! :(

Looks like there are some funny jokers here. Get a life people !

tomPoland2013-01-11 09:44:01
It looks like Van Helsing, so I hope we will get at least something half as good as Silvestri score.

tomPoland2013-02-12 12:10:55
And I was wrong. For one-time listening only.

Miles2013-02-13 03:37:37
It's exciting and it has its moments, but it's not memorable or well-crafted enough to leave much of a good impression. Hope that Atli gets more demanded of him on his next project.

Ds reply Replies: 4 || 2013-01-24 12:12:03
Bought it on iTunes, it's a cool score. Very agressive, it's really like Atli described it: a mix between classic/gothic "fairy tale" sound and metal.

Hybrid Soldier2013-01-24 17:42:59
(note: in answer to a deleted post but I keep this as it gives some information (Damien))

You have it up to Amazon & iTunes, even an amazon link right here on that very page !

Don't act like child...

Anyway, funny that the "Executive Music Producer HANS ZIMMER" comes BEFORE the composer credit on the film poster... Oh well...

El Baradei2013-01-26 17:37:52
Yeah, it's funny... next time Hans Zimmer's name comes before the actors: music by Hans Zimmer, starring Brad Pitt.

Ds2013-01-28 21:53:52
Well i find Hans Zimmer's name more attractive than Brad Pitt or any actor :p

MrZimmerFan (Fan from Spain)2013-01-30 16:40:48
I really like this work by Atli

Miles reply Replies: 3 || 2013-01-16 00:16:04
Amazon has a tracklist and audio clips up! It has contemporary elements which evoke Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but they're more cohesive and listenable here than in the former. There's also some nice quirky and unsettling choral work in Tracks 1, 9, and 13, and Track 12 sounds like what I can only describe as "gothic rock". Definitely looking forward to this!

Hybrid Soldier2013-01-16 09:10:20
Funny it's only digital and not even mentioning LLL Records. I wonder if their release will be strictly identical to this... LLL & Digital Bonus Tracks don't exactly match... And their physical release of Mancina's Sorcery was not the exact same as the digital one... We'll see.

Amazon is not able to spell either:
