Doesn´t looks like it. But it is a shame. Maybe someday it will. Who knows? :(
There is nothing we can do but pray and hope :/
It´s sad, but you are right. We can only pray and wait... But hey, miracles happens everyday, so why not in this case?! The World Beyond will maybe act to let Beyond Two Souls soundtrack be available in our world and even the complete version with all tracks, even those which weren´t actually officially released... ;) They´ll make Hans Zimmer change his mind and "influence" him... :D
Lorne Balfe composed Killzone Shadow Fall with Tyler Bates?
Nothing about Tyler Bates can ever be considered "epic".
maybe not to you but i love tyler bates' music
I can think of few composers I have less respect for than Bates. The man has no talent to speak of and is a thief to boot.
also not a fan of Tyler Bates...
trent easton navarro
@Edmund, name me a film composer who hasn't borrowed from someone else? Why should Bates get all the blame and Horner, Williams and Zimmer a pass? And have you heard Bates' The Way? A lovely score, so Bates does have some talent.
I'm not familiar with Tyler Bates, but I do remember liking the score in The Way when I saw it.
Once I had the same opinion as Edmund does. But nowadays, I can see some potential in Bates (thanks to "The Way"). Although he DID piss all over memory of Basil Poledouris with his terrible "Conan the Barbarian" score in 2011. "Guradians of The Galaxy" will be a deal-breaker for him, a chance to prove himself. If he ruins it... he's finished.
The only score of his I heard that wasn't completely awful is the recent God of War: Ascension videogame he did, and even that was mostly just generic. Although I haven't heard The Way or Doomsday, which people say are better. What I have heard besides God of War is 300 (the best parts of which are by Elliot Goldenthal...about the whole theft thing, I know other composers do it too, but other composers have also proven themselves capable of writing great ORIGINAL music), Conan (just terrible) and The Darkest Hour (absolutely ear-bleeding). I haven't bothered to explore him further than that so I know I'm not really giving him a fair chance but there are just so many better composers who I need to explore first.
Macejko, yup, Guardians of the Galaxy will either make or break him. Although I really don't see why he keeps getting chances at big movies at all.
Trent you are forgetting that Williams and Zimmer & even Horner I are kinda the pioneer's of film score music. Listened to about three seconds of 300 and hated it answer this. Is Tyler Bates a pioneer no Zimmer's music is so much better.
Agreed with ed most other composer's are a little more creative each have their own style. and as much as everyone slams Zimmer he has developed his own style and not stolen from anyone else.
MacArthur, I'm not saying this to be a jerk, but please try to punctuate future comments. :) That was difficult to read.
Yeah, I know...Just noticed that after I posted it. I was hoping no one would notice. lol.
its actually not Lorne Balfe its someone named DJ Lorn
Perhaps I'm over-thinking this, but am I the only one slightly aggravated by the fact that "Produced by Hans Zimmer" comes BEFORE "Music by Lorne Balfe" in the booklet? That makes it sound like Zimmer actually wrote some of music, and besides, everyone knows about Zimmer, while not many know about Lorne in comparison, so they'd probably focus on him anyway.
Hans Zimmer is a name that sells units. Lorne Balfe is not. There's your answer. It's the same with Crysis 2...Zimmer and Balfe wrote 15 minutes of music, Slavov and Sillescu over 75, and yet Zimmer's name has the biggest font on the front cover. Marketing, dear boy.
Oh, absolutely, but it's unfair to Lorne all the same.
Agreed But Slavov and sillescu's stuff ain't bad
Lorne should be happy he gets to work this much, no matter what the credits are.
Agreed with Macejko
Damn, Lorne should be a known name by now...
I know. Every time something by Hans comes out, you're bound to hear Lorne somewhere in there.
I just read an official promotional thing for the game, and it says "a true cinematic experience (the music was composed by Hans Zimmer) ...."
All the commenters on various sites are going, "OMG HANS ZIMMER IS SO AMAZING I'M SO EXCITED". Well, if you're looking for a Zimmer score, prepare to be disappointed. I can't count the number of people who, to this day, think Hans Zimmer wrote all the music in Modern Warfare 2. He did what, 5 minutes? Lorne Balfe did an hour or more, and no one gives him any attention.
Heck, one guy thought Zimmer scored Assassin's Creed III. Is his named attached to that one at all?
Well I saw a YouTube comment once that said Enya did the scores to all three Lord of the Rings movies so never underestimate the idiocy of fanboys. And the people marketing these scores know exactly how to play said fanboys. ;)
Exactly. Now Zimmer might have helped on this score (Maybe like in CoDmw2) but I think that you guys are dead on this is a balfe score (unlike the Bible) I don't know why Zimmer is Credited.
My bad I meant Dead right. sorry
MacArthur, you seem to have this weird beef about proving that everything with Zimmer's name on it is, in fact, by Zimmer...even though more often than not his contribution is fairly minimal. I remain skeptical about his involvement with The Bible and am much more inclined to believe that Balfe did most of the heavy lifting. It's probably a similar situation to Henri IV, which is a Henry Jackman score from beginning to end, but has Zimmer's name on the front presumably to try and sell a few extra units. Although with The Bible at least it seems Zimmer provided a couple themes/cues.
MacArthur, do you see Zimmer credited here with any kind of real composition? He's neither credited as "composer" nor as a guy who wrote "additional music". He's the producer. He might give the general idea of a sound to go for, he might do some mixing, but the actual writing was up to Lorne and the four additional guys. Now I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we were to learn that Zimmer did write SOMETHING for this score, but until we hear otherwise, don't assume he did.
Now, there was indeed a video of Hans and Lorne discussing it, and all the news sites are indeed giving Hans lots of credit, but as Edmund said, that's because Zimmer's name will sell titles. Lorne's won't.
Though to be fair, you didn't say, "I'm sure Zimmer helped on this score", you said, "Zimmer may have", which is essentially what I hypothesized just above.
Over at Audio Media there's this:
"We believe that with the addition of Ellen Page, Willem Dafoe, and now Hans Zimmer with the soundtrack – we were really looking for the best, most talented people out there to create the emotion in Beyond, and we have a beautiful soundtrack in the game," said Beyond creator and Quantic Dream CEO David Cage.
One thing I never said Zimmer did it I said (like Mike said) he may have had a hand in it. The thing with the Bible score is for one don't trust the media. But For the Bible score not only did the media praise Zimmer for his score but the Director's said that his score made the series better, plus Zimmer did a bunch interviews about "his" score. Now for this one I have no doubt in my mind that this is a Balfe score Like I said before Zimmer Might have done like a main theme or something but until told otherwise Balfe will bring the cows home with this one. (with the Media saying Zimmer did it lol)
In a book about John Woo, there is a quotation from Zimmer along the lines of how people said Face/Off worked so well with "his score". As we know, Powell was the composer!
Casey's point is that as soon as Zimmer's name is attached to something, people think he wrote it (Zimmer was the score producer for "Face/Off" by John Powell).
I see. Face off is known as a John Powell score though.
And "Chill Factor" was scored mostly by John Powell as well.
Chill Factor was almost equally scored by John Powell, Klaus Badelt & Jeff Rona, with help by McKee Smith, Zanelli & Jimmy Levine.
HZ did 2 cues... :P
Yeah, Wikipedia says Zimmer was the principal composer on Chill Factor...How reliable that site is!

is it real?
Yeah at least it's what i have!
Careful Ds when you post things and you're not allowed to. Feels probably great to show off but think twice before you do that. Just a warning for the future, cause trust me it's not supposed to be out just yet, and might not even be the definitive one...
Ouch i'm really sorry about that... I was just thinking the page hasn't been updated yet. Just delete my post?
Come on, it's just a tracklist... nobody will care outside of this website...
Yeah it's no big deal, I just know how you got it and asked permission myself from LB's team to put it out, and they didn't want it out yet (even if it's supposed to be out in like 2 weeks lol).
Anyway... Great score btw. Weird to hear LB with a real orchestra once in a while... ;)
Funny you mention the real orchestra thing, because I was just thinking about how Lorne's scores can sound so cheap--even if the music itself is good. Skylanders, Crysis 2, and Assassin's Creed 3 all sound overly synthy and fake.
Crysis 2 Is mainly Zimmer.
Okay, but Lorne is involved with it, and it still has the problem. ;)
Okay, but Lorne is involved with it, and it still has the problem. ;)
Huh? I was under the impression that Crysis 2 was mainly Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu!
No, I know It is mainly The Other 2 But the Theme Stuff is Mainly Zimmer.
Such as Crysis Intro Insertion Invaders Nano-Catalyst Under Siege Prophet Journey Epilogue
Agreed With you Mike the synth sound was there a little to much. But Epilogue And The Intro weren't too bad of all of them those sounded real. Especially the end of epilogue
