@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06. The Legend of the Jewel (02:23)<br>07. The Adventure Begins (01:40)<br>08. Special Abilities (01:16)<br>09. The Bikers (03:44)<br>10. Van Pelt (01:00)<br>11. A Test Of Friendship (01:22)<br>12. The Bazaar (01:16)<br>13. Snake Charmer (03:41)<br>14. The Power of Bravestone (01:04)<br>15. Seaplane McDonough (02:17)<br>16. The Missing Piece (01:46)<br>17. Lost In Time (01:18)<br>18. Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.
One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.hans should win the oscar for best sound effects and not for the best music/score. just as a statement.And it's also unfair to use Balfe to criticize Powell. He started working on American projects in 2005 with Batman Begins, and only after 2010 did he receive individual projects. Is it accurate to compare someone who entered the party at the last minute with two others who are in it for 20 (Powell) and 30 (Zimmer)?<br><br>I'm in a hurry and I put everything into a translator. Forgive the many mistakes.<br> <br><br><br>Composers do not need to worry about the attention, acceptance of the public of the same or the same intensity as pop music artists do. There's no need to do that. Occasionally some name draws attention to the public and causes many people to be in the genre, Williams and Zimmer are the main examples that I can bring the table. However it is not because Williams or Zimmer are extremely popular and perhaps worry about the material they are offering to the public who adores them that all the composers of the world need to do equal. Most of these men and women even enxeega as "celebrity". They are more like artisans or the rest of the crew of a film that occupies with the lights, effects and costumes and that will never have the same response from the public as the main actor. And they don't even expect it. So I think it's foolish to wait for Powell to occupy himself in 2,3 movies a year to please a fanbase.<br><br>I'll agree with you when it says it's deplorable to see CPR composers who talk so much about building a single voice and giving emerging talent the opportunity to use so many additional composers (many of them with a possible promise that in the future they will work with Zimmer and thus have the opportunity to show his face in Hollywood.The sense is almost always these.You start with a secondary composer, he arrives at Zimmer and gains some kind of notoriety). But Powell is not the only one who does this. So he should not be the only one criticized.Well...it's a film score. It has no obligation to provide a pleasant or enjoyable listening experience, and for an award like this that doesn't really come into consideration. So if it works in the film, it did its job and that's all that matters.<br><br>For me personally, as someone who cares about music first and films second, a score like Dunkirk has little value. A few years ago I probably would have been pretty mad about this score winning awards and acclaim (you should have seen how salty I got when The Social Network beat out HTTYD), but these days... *shrug*. I know what I like, Dunkirk isn't it, and that's fine. It wasn't written for me. Do I wish Hans still wrote the kind of music I like? Of course. But he gets to make his own choices as an artist, just as I get to choose what to listen to as a fan.
The score is already on itunes.This score... so many mixed emotions. Does it work for the film? Heck yeah. Does it improve the film? So much so. Did Hans do what he set out to do? Totally. Is it an award winning masterpiece? Um, not so fast.<br><br>Dunkirk, while super effective within the context of the film (I wouldn’t change a thing about it), I must admit, it doesn’t have nearly the same effect as a stand-alone listen. It’s literally the same textures and notes over and over again, just slightly rising and falling in pitch and tempo. Does that make it “award” worthy? I’m not sure. If based solely on the film, you betcha. If based purely on the music itself, I don’t think so. That’s where Interstellar succeeds so far and away over Dunkirk. As a pure listening experience, Interstellar is interesting, multi-layered and emotional. Whereas Dunkirk is just flat, void of any sort of feeling or “actual” music (again, works IN the film). It’s glorified sound FX (save for the end, which, no doubt, is in large part to Ben).<br><br>Hmm... I’ve never had a score tear me apart more than this one. I both love it and hate it. Maybe it did it’s job... lol.<br><br>Excuse me while I go listen to No Time for Caution yet again.I think most of us agree that he should've won for Interstellar but I think Dunkirk deserves it too. The work Hans and the music department did on this movie is just incredible. Must've been a lot of hard work. <br>An award is an award, Hans' 2nd Oscar is long overdue so I'd be glad to see him win. But it would be weird to see him win for THAT score, after all the greatnesses of the past 20 years. Same thing with Morricone who won his only Oscar for his very light and insignificant work on Hateful Eight. Good for the man, good for the fans, but doesn't really make sense. But have Oscars ever made sense? :-phaha hybrid :D made my day

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

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 H-Z.com 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!

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:
