Interesting development: filmmusicreporter.com/2014/04/23/john-powell-to-take-break-f rom-film-music-to-compose-concert-music/


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-24 00:01:22
Well I don't think he's taking another break...

It's still the continuity of his 2012 decision to step back... Rio 2 & HTTYD 2 being some kind of parenthesis... If he has a project he cares about, he'll score it... But like I said before, don't expect him to go berserk scoring 7 films a year and saying yes to everything, like in the past... Far from it...


Anonymous2014-04-24 05:49:32
Of all the film composers I know, Powell was one of the few I did not want to step aside.


Anonymous2014-04-24 05:57:03
So, he is not returning for Dragon 3 Or Kung fu Panda 3?

Good read! Thanks for the share!


Ds2014-04-22 21:11:11
Yeah, it's a really interesting and funny interview. Interviews of him aren't that frequent, so I enjoyed it twice more!


isildur2014-04-22 22:07:33
Cheers :)


trent easton navarro2014-04-23 14:04:15
"Thatís why film music is getting terribly uninteresting. Itís a snake sucking its own cock. Everything sounds like The Dark Knight if it is big and epic. Everything sounds like Bourne Identity if it is small and spy-y."

Hard to disagree with this one.

The rest of the interview was also very interesting.

Heard this score,.....

One thing to say: a true comeback!

The score in Rio 2 is nothing but inventive, engaging, and fun.

Yes it's animated movie, and you may expect some mickey-mousing here and there, but the Powellness is still there and improving. The orchestration is highly advanced, the previous themes are smartly arranged (in some you might hear a new theme on the fact that is the old theme).

Having said that, this score still doesnt reach the level of HTTYD, Mars, Robots, and other Powell's animated score( blame the movie i guess), but it ranks one of the highest in Powell's sequel score

Standout cue: "battle for the heart of the forest" and perhaps "bola viva" (from song album)

This score makes me even believe what a mighty score HTTYD 2 will turn out to be

I saw it today, it is such a joy to watch a movie scored by John Powell. Big smile on my face!


Lambegue2014-04-05 20:45:18
Is this as good a score as everybody here seems to hope ?


Pablo Reyes2014-04-05 21:08:06
I'm sure the score will be a masterpiece. Is the movie any good, though?


Ds2014-04-05 21:50:52
I'd say that both movie and score are on par with the 1st one. They are funny, sunny and colourful. More particularly, this score is a very enjoyable, light and playful listening experience. Especially if you were missing John Powell :-)

But the real beast everyone's waiting for is, of course, How to train your dragon 2!

J. A. J. reply Replies: 3 || 2014-03-26 04:22:37
Track lengths can now be seen on Soundtrack dot net.

Also, the song album is out now, and having heard it, I can happily say that Powell plays a pretty big part in the arrangements of many of the songs.


Pablo Reyes2014-03-26 23:30:19
Agreed.


Pablo Reyes2014-03-30 18:30:41
The Bola Viva track from the album has Powell written all over it.


J. A. J.2014-03-31 02:49:45
The songs are pretty much necessary if one wants a complete presentation of Powell's work. Hopefully, the song album will eventually get shown on this site.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 18 || 2014-03-21 00:10:37
He has finally returned... lol


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-21 00:25:50
This is mostly an appetizer to the main course of HTTYD2, but hopefully it will be a very nice one. I can't even begin to say how much I've missed John Powell over the last nearly-two years.


Paul2014-03-21 01:08:12
Loving what I'm hearing on those samples! Glad to have our boy back!


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 01:57:26
What samples? I'm dying to hear the score! I absolutely adore Powell's music and it's incredible how happy I am to have him back.


Paul2014-03-21 02:30:50
Here:

Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 02:59:29
Many thanks! The samples are a masterpiece! Can't wait to hear the full score!


Brent2014-03-21 07:31:47
Yes! He's finally back. I'm so glad that I get to enjoy an old fashioned Powell score. I've missed that the past couple of years.

Now, when Gregson-Williams returns, I'll be one happy guy.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-21 08:35:02
Harry is doing Antoine Fuqua's next movie...


And well, as for live action for JP, I don't think it's gonna happen anytime soon... He carefully choose to score what he wants now... And he loves animation...


Leo2014-03-21 08:42:38
Don't forget the new video game, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Hopefully it gets a release. :P


Saurabh2014-03-21 08:47:02
As much as I love JP's animation stuff, which no doubt is awesome, it's his live action stuff that I'm missing the most. He adds this unique propulsion to the action with the Middle eastern and Indian(sometimes almost Bollywood-esque) drums like in Bourne, Mr and Mrs. Smith, Jumper,etc which seems to be somewhat missing in the current action scene. It's JP's this signature style that I miss sorely in live action.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-21 09:09:04
Well what came out of Green Zone is probably not encouraging him to return to that... lol


Saurabh2014-03-21 09:24:02
I think anyone who works with Greengrass won't have anything encouraging to tell. Like Cillian said in Inception, " We didn't have many 'meaningful' experiences together." lol

Here's hoping JP crushes it with HTTYD2.


Lambegue2014-03-21 10:09:56
At last !
On this one I won't listen to samples, I'll just wait until I can hear the full album...


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 18:17:07
What's wrong with Green Zone? The Attack And Chase cue is really good and exciting! As Saurabh said, anything by the man is as precious as gold. But that's just my opinion.


Lambegue2014-03-21 18:27:01
I think that Hybrid's commentary isn't refering to the quality of the score itself, but to the working process between Powell and Greengrass.


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 20:15:34
Oh yeah, I see how that could be misinterpreted. What happened between Powell and Greengrass?


Ds2014-03-21 20:18:15
It's funny that you guys are speaking about John Powell, I just re-listened to "Bim Bam Smash" from The Bourne Supremacy, what an awesome action cue!!


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-21 20:25:20
Well he had to re-write Green Zone several times ?

When he understood the mess he was in on Captain Phillips, HZ called John Powell who probably had a good laugh telling him "don't do it"... I guess it says it all...


Jon2014-03-22 15:09:26
Samples sound great! Can't wait!

Saurabh reply Replies: 2 || 2014-03-21 04:54:01
I won't say he finally returned unless it's something live action. But anything by the man is as precious as gold.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-21 13:04:18
Powell does some of his best work in animated movies, and they give him scope to write expansive, stylish music that often doesn't exist in a live-action movie. I never understand why some people feel the need to look down on animated flicks when, really, they probably offer a much better canvas to composers than most action movies. Just look at the wildly varying difference in quality in Henry Jackman's works...


Paul2014-03-21 18:00:06
Exactly. And didn't Hybrid just say Powell isn't really interested in live action at this point? I'm sure he'll do some for his friends, but it would be interesting if he took an animated picture outside of the US industry.
