Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.
Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!So no solo cello by Tina Guo? Is it digital then or is it no cello?CD or LP release?
Why is Lorne Balfe not nominated for a Grammy for Ad Astra ?To my understanding, James never worked for Hans or Remote Control. They’re simply friends and have collaborated on a few projects. Powell (and Gregson-Williams) used to work at Remote Control before moving on to his own studio/endeavors. <br><br>BUT, I am equally as excited for James to return to Disney Animation. Very excited for this and Jungle Cruise.I guess James Newton Howard doesn't count as a Remote Control composer anymore (and yet John Powell does? I don't get it), but anyway, he's scoring Disney Animation Studios' Raya and the Last Dragon. After his epic trilogy of Dinosaur, Atlantis, and Treasure Planet, I welcome his return to the studio!Some original cue titles with slates from a music mixing CD-R:<br>1M13 Transactions<br><br>2M16 Jake Gets Stoned<br>2M20A Alley<br>2M21 Rapists Castration<br><br>3M24 My Old Division<br>3M27 Go Fetch Dog<br>3M30 The Freeway<br>3M32 Alonzo Steals Money<br>3M33 Into The Jungle<br><br>4M41 Safety Is First / Busting Into Rogers<br><br>5M46 Helicopter<br>5M48 Sunset / Wet Streets<br>5M51 Jake Gets Beaten<br>5M52 Smiley Calls His Cousin<br><br>6M57 On The Roof<br>6M58 Jake Lands On Car<br><br>7M61 Alonzo Dies<br>7M63 Sun ShotMovie credits:<br><br>Music by Hans Zimmer & David Fleming<br><br>Music Supervisor: Joe Rudge<br><br>Score Produced by Hans Zimmer<br>Supervising Music Editor: Ryan Rubin<br>Music Editor: Nate Underkuffler<br>Music Production Services: Steven Kofsky<br>Additional Music by Ben Powell<br>Featured Guitar Soloist: Derek Trucks<br>Score Mixed by Seth Waldmann<br>Score Mix Assistant: Aldo Arechar<br>Technical Score Engineer: Chuck Choi<br>Technical Assistants: James Grimwade, Aldo Arechar, Steven Doar & Fabio Marks<br>Synth Programming: Hans Zimmer<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark Wherry<br>Digital Instrument Preparation: Taurees Habib, Raul Vega, David Naroth & Paul Salerno<br>Studio Manager for Remote Control Productions: Shalini Singh<br>Assistant to Hans Zimmer: Cynthia Park<br>Score Mixed at Remote Control Productions, Santa Monica CA<br>Music Clearances: Jessica Dolinger

If this is a new precedent for companies to release past (and future) works expanded than sign me up. I love the option of having both a normal OST release and a complete. Saves having to wait for sessions lol


theeaglesfan0052020-09-23 22:32:19
film version of No Time for Caution would be amazing

Day One Dark in higher quality than 256kbps MP3 would be cool too


mpolonest123 2020-09-23 22:49:03
Just checked the Amazon page and the track listing is essentially the same as the Illuminated Star Edition (with No Time For Caution and Day One Dark added on)

well that's disappointing -.-


victornasser942020-09-23 23:34:02
Oh... And No Time For Caution was already included on the Illuminated Star Edition (hidden track on CD2)... Sad...


Moggyman2020-09-24 01:17:04
Awesome news. But next time Hans should just include the entire score along with those tracks. I also think that he should release an extended version of Dunkirk because there is so much material in the movie that hasn't been released.


Ahmad2020-09-24 03:39:48
I have a feeling Hans doesn’t even know about this release lol. It’s so lazily done. I hope the packaging makes up for it tho.

I’m crossing my fingers for Dunkirk but I don’t think it’ll ever happen. That

There are tons of music in the film that didn't make it to the soundtrack.

Despite the fact that this release is gonna be identical to the illuminated star projection edition, it is a great opportunity for those, who missed the chance to get it before, as it was a limited release and the money people on discogs or ebay ask for it is ridiculous.


Jerry2020-10-07 17:17:15
Yeah like I was unable to get the illuminated star version back in 2014, so I'm very excited to finally get all this music


Kalman2020-11-09 18:05:26
I wonder if they fixed the sound of No Time for Caution for this release as it was put on the Illuminated Box edition at the last minute with rather muddy sound. Any info on that?


Ahmad2020-11-11 02:51:01
Don’t think it sounds muddy. Just very dynamic - like they skipped mastering. I think it’s a good thing.

The film version seems to be the work of music editors and was possibly made during the dub stage so we’ll never get if. The album version is Hans’ version and honestly I love the emphasis on strings. I do miss the choir the most but it’s an excuse to pop the Blu-ray and watch the scene again (of the entire film).


boldizar2020-11-18 13:50:48
I have not listened to my original version of this in years, but was the mastering always this bad? There are several tracks on disc on and at least one on disc 2 where they sound gain boosted and distorted at the peaks.

Christopher H. reply Replies: 4 || 2018-02-27 14:01:29
Can we just have Hans not be a synonym for complacency but a signpost for a truly revolutionary approach to creativity?

He did well in this score, anything else he has done since Inception is pure corporate money mongering. Shameful.

It is endlessly amusing to see those videos of HZ talk about his creative process. Well, McDonalds does the same.

HZ is the McDonalds of film composition, except when he detaches from it. It is so sad to see such an artist become such a corporate figure.

So everybody talks about No Time for Caution, and that is a great cue, but I think an underappreciated track from this score is Cornfield Chase. It sounds so whimsical and uplifting. It captures the wonder and fun of childhood really well. The fact that it's so driven by the pipe organ makes it even better. I love how Hans incorporated the organ into most of the tracks.


Moggyman2018-08-18 18:35:31
Mike, I definitely agree with you. I think that Cornfield Chase is an excellent example of Zimmer's diversity in music. It shows that He can compose themes that are adventurous and light-hearted rather than being so dark, which is quite different from a lot of his works including his other collaborations with Nolan.


Mephariel2018-08-18 23:19:07
I don't think Cornfield Chase is underappreciated because that is the cue everyone is talking about besides No Time for Caution and Mountains. The most underappreciated cue to me is Dust. The amount of mystery, wonder, and curiosity from that cue is amazing.


mpolonest1232018-08-18 23:26:31
Don’t forget Coward! :D

Hybrid Soldier2018-08-19 00:24:07
Mountains too... The Tick Tock suite.

"Our World" is a fav' of mine too, how could they not release it ?


Mike2018-08-19 01:59:55
Dust, Who's They, and Our World are other favorites, for sure. Our World is some fantastic ambient music. Before the film was released, I expected most of the score to sound like "Our World."


mpolonest1232018-08-19 02:04:29
“Our World” is a pretty amazing track, the “Murph” suite is also incredible just in how it gradually builds to that finale...


Mike2018-08-19 02:08:15
Hybrid, do you know if any suites were written besides the ones that they released?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-19 09:01:35
Well with that score we got pretty lucky in term of theme suites being released, with 5 of them. I don't know for sure if there's more but I think we have it covered.

Hybrid Soldier2016-07-26 22:05:04
Because they made dozens of versions of it and Hans' final one is the one released on the OST.

The film version was assembled by music editors with stems of other cues at the very last minute.


Mike2016-07-27 03:11:03
Don't wait for a release. Not to be a spoil-sport, but it won't happen. What they gave us is what we're getting. That said, so many fans have recreated the film version that we can all be satisfied, really.

Now if only fans would do a solid edit of "Batman Chased"... still waiting for that one, 4 years on... lol

Anonymous reply Replies: 2 || 2016-03-18 19:36:56
Zimmer should go solo again for Dunkirk. I know it's over-talked about here, but it was a real treat hearing Zimmer without five others in Interstellar. If he did even one score "alone" every so often, it would help fans keep track of what's genuinely HIS musical voice. I'm also not sure it's a coincidence that Interstellar was one of his best scores for a few years. Anyone agree?


Boldizar 2016-03-27 08:10:57
I agree completely. I also think it is extremely dishonest when film composers get sold credit when they used "not so" ghost writes for some cues. Interstellar was good because of the music, but also because it was honest and genuine. No Ramin Djwadi chained up in the back room with Balfe.


soi2016-05-10 08:01:59
I don't agree with Boldizar. There's nothing dishonest about what Zimmer and his friends do. They're pretty damn open about not caring about exact credits. But I do agree that interstellar was really cool because it felt like you were listening to something personal and his voice really shined.

The collaborations are hit and miss for me, pirates of the caribbean is great, bunch of talented composers going at but you could still hear one voice tying it all together, kung fu panda 3 on the other hand was mostly boring, only a few tracks like the second half of jaded or legend of kai worth a repeat listen.

This was addressed a few years ago, but unfortunately this doesn't seem to be have been escalated:

Why does every track (I own the flac & cd version of the soundtrack) have a spike at ~15.7 KHz? Every(!) track has a high-frequency noise throughout the whole track.
You can easily visualize this when using a spectrogram. Because it's on each track, I can't believe this was intended.

There was a huge discussion when the album came out in 2014 in reddit's audio-engineering subreddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/audioengineering/comments/2mszh4/wh ats_up_with_this_spike_at_around_157khz_on_the/?sort=top

It's sad that no one from Hans' side responded to that issue.

Not sure if this is the place, but I guess Warner Bros just announced Nolan's new film, "Dunkirk." It's a WWII war movie. Hmm, It'll be interesting to hear Zimmer's take on WWII again.

considering it's a summer blockbuster and doesn't feature Americans(takes place in 1940)...no oscar


Zimson2015-12-29 21:09:43
Yeah since it's going to be an action-thriller a nomination for best film is very unlikely. However you can't deny the academy likes period dramas.

If Hans Zimmer wants us to hear his scores on big speakers, then why won't he provide us with the needed quality of his tracks to play it on our big speakers.. None of his (louder) scores have an isolated score option on the blu-ray of the movies (only inception has a 5.1 selection on the bonus disc). I still don't understand why he won't release complete versions of his scores, in either 2.0 or 5.1 (just like the Lord of the Rings collector's soundtrack collection). People clearly want it, but instead we get shitty cd's with half of the tracks missing and some are released as bonus tracks in 256kbps.. Why Hans?!

Just checking in to see if anyone's heard or read any more about anything coming out? I know it's effectively a over and done deal, because we've never received a complete Zimmer score, but I'm still hoping for one - or something with more music.

I wish Zimmer had more control over his music - or care, really. I guess as an artist, once you're done with something, it's time to move on, but he just really seems to be "eh, I'm passed that" in every interview he does about it - that or it's him saying "We'll see" or "It's up to Water Tower" or "Eh, it's out there somewhere. Who knows." Howard Shore does the same thing with the Hobbit complete scores - he just seems so "whatever" about the whole thing when anyone asks him, or that he has no clue how much there is - Shore even stated that the release we have now for "An Unexpected Journey" is pretty much complete - which, would be true, if it had the other 40 minutes worth of stuff that's not on it. Why do scorers seem so oblivious to what they've made? Or careless?

I can't tell if Zimmer just doesn't care, understand, or has no control over it, which upsets me. I'm not hating on him - I just wish I had a way to listen to that gorgeous score, even though I'm not entitled to it. Being a fan of film score sucks.


Ds2015-05-21 23:58:24
Hum I get your point but what cue are we missing here? I do not remember any missing piece of music, the release + the promotional FYC seemed quite exhaustive. The only problem is a damaged track (which has been repaired by fans) and an alternate track (the film mix has been recreated by fans). So in the specific case of Interstellar I don´t understand your complain...


Boldizar2015-05-23 19:06:15
We won't see anything for years if ever. Alan the best you can do is to get the FYC CD and merge the tracks not on the "official" releases. Unfortunately it will never be lossless due to the FYC cd source. The only missing cues are First Handshake and the Credits which are friend has on YouTube with the NTFC film mix and a fixed QC.

Ds, the ISP is missing quite a bit cue wise.


Alan2015-05-24 04:28:47
Ah, yes, Boldizar - you hit what was going to be my response to Ds right on the nose: the problem of them not being lossless. This score needs to sound as good as possible, as far as I'm concerned, and tracks being lossless is a must - so that is why I hold out some small, tiny hope for an official complete release. And for the fan edits, they are fine, and the folks who worked on them are fantastic, but I'd still like something straight from Zimmer.

I made most of the fan edits you are talking about, and I still agree. I'd like to have the original, missing / lost tracks in my possession just as much as you guys would.


Ds2015-05-24 14:08:45
Alan, in fact we actually got "something straight from Zimmer", and it was the crappy No Time For Caution demo released on iTunes. Something coming straight from Hans doesn't necessarily mean it's better than other people's arrangement...


Hybrid Soldier2015-05-24 14:31:27
It's not a demo... lol


Anyway, First Handshake, seriously ? It's just a music editing.

We have all we need from Interstellar. There's a pile a HZ scores that would deserve some extra stuff. I crossed IS off the list ! :P


bro2015-05-24 16:42:09
Yeah I don't think getting "extra stuff" whatever is the problem, people mostly just keep bitching for a not-damaged Quantifiable Connection. The NTFC stuff is mostly resolved at this point, and I wouldn't say the official NTFC track was a demo. It's looking like the track was intentionally mastered the way it was. And I like it.


Mike2015-09-18 14:55:43
I don't necessarily mean to resurrect this debate (after the track came out, the vitriol was HORRENDOUS), but, referring to Ds's comment, am I the only one who does *not* have a problem with the original No Time For Caution track?

I agree the film version is much better, the track we got does sound "demo-ish" in parts (the fade out/organ crescendo at the very end is what struck me), and the volume is uneven (super quiet at the start, loud at the end, but that's easily fixable with the right software). But all in all, the track still gives me the same sense of emotion/excitement/suspense that the film version does.


Mike2015-09-18 14:56:35
Am I the only person besides bro, that is. ;)

it doesn't really matter since the music is still totally HZ in this score but do we know which scenes Andrew and Steve did programming on? just curious

Mike reply Replies: 10 || 2015-08-29 14:16:45
Am I the only one consistently reminded of the late James Horner whenever I listen to Cornfield Chase? It makes me think, for example, of Cracking the Russian Codes from A Beautiful Mind... it's got that same "flourishy," constantly-moving instrumentation, it picks up with a kinetic piano motif, and even has a super-abrupt ending. Cornfield Chase is actually one of my favorite Zimmer cues in a while.

Hybrid, do you know if it was an intentional homage to Horner's sound?


Hybrid Soldier2015-08-29 14:28:21
Absolutely no idea !


Bioscope2015-08-29 16:13:24
My Horner moments cam from space scenes. Very Apollo 13....


Zimson2015-08-29 21:20:13
Never came to my mind. Interstellar is way to heavy on the electronics to sound anything like Horner imo. If there are any similarities I could find in another score, it's maybe Her by arcade fire. The overall theme of that score is piano and electronic pads, but it's still far away from sounding anything like interstellar.


Mike2015-08-29 21:24:31
You should still consider pairing it with the track I mention, for comparison's sake...It just seems like a style imitation, IMO. ;)


Boldizar2015-08-30 00:27:21
Speaking of Her, I really wish that score got a release (even a promo one). Great film.


Anonymous2015-08-30 01:03:29
Speaking of Her, that score got a release (a promo one). It's the FYC.


Frank2015-08-30 01:06:01
I agree. Coward reminds me of Horner's "crushing piano"


Edmund Meinerts2015-08-31 15:59:15
The rolling low piano in Interstellar definitely reminds me of Horner. I see what you mean with Cornfield Chase, although I don't think it's particularly striking (or even intentional). Flying Drone, on the other hand, reminds me of JNH's Signs!


Boldizar2015-09-15 02:00:36
Thanks for heads up Anon. I did not know it ever existed but was able to get a copy dirt cheap. :)


Anonymous2015-09-15 16:26:40
I guess I'm the odd one out. To me the score is closer to being a Da Vinci Code sibling than being a James Horner homage.

Nolan has made a new film. A documentary. I hope Hans scored it!

Right... so I got my blu-ray pre-order in today, a day early, and I can't help but notice (or think I do, at least) that the loudest parts of the movie, where the music really used to drown stuff out (that I, personally, loved but everyone else complained about) has been dumbed down a bit? I realize my home theater will not sound even so much as an ounce like the IMAX I saw the film in multiple times, but damn... I really feel like those scenes that really BAM sent the score home. Scenes I am thinking of are the bigs ones: Mountains, Mann's betrayal, Docking. They're just... not loud anymore. The voices and the sound effects are great! But the music... it's toned down a bit.

Has anyone else had this issue with theirs? I even checked out the iTunes version and it's got the same volume control as well... does anyone think Nolan succumbed (or was forced) to obey a few complaints and "turned" the music down? Man I really just hope it's my system....


Adam2015-03-31 07:43:20
I will check for you later today Alan!

I downloaded the 1080p IMAX torrent a few weeks ago and all the volume seemed fine to me! People must have been crazy saying the music was too loud


NotSoAnonymous2015-03-31 08:08:45
I'm waiting for my copy, but of all the download versions I've come across it has been substantially altered. I was upset too.


Laurens2015-04-01 19:38:03
I watched parts of the blu-ray yesterday with headphones on, and I didn't notice a significant drop in music volume, it might have been taken down a bit to make sure everything still sounds good on less speakers than 5 (and not blow everything up with the very complex parts, I don't know)? I did notice this on the iTunes version, where the organ in the docking scene messed up the audio track when it got very loud, I was kind of disappointed by that because it just does not sound good when the audio starts cracking up because of its own volume. So I was just glad that the blu ray did not have this issue...


Alan2015-04-01 21:56:04
Thanks Adam - let me know how that IMAX torrent goes. Also, could you explain the different it would have apart from the blu-ray?

NotSoAnonymous - I agree. I tried a few versions, like iTunes and what not, and they're quiet as well.

Laurens - I think Laurens might be on to something here... it would make sense to "dumb" down things a bit because well... I doubt very few people in the world have a home IMAX and copying that format straight to home video might be... well, disastrously noisy. So maybe this was an attempt to make the home viewing doable? Still a little upset at how much that first blast in Mountains has be turned down... it's nowhere near as big and powerful of a scene (to me) now.

In other news I tried to configure things a little differently in my setup, but I can't test it as my second disc came scratched so I sent it back to Amazon (they keep sending my broken shit) but when I get my replacement copy in, I will try it again and let everyone know. Who knows - maybe this is just time to get new speakers.



Ray2015-04-14 00:12:02
Hello.
Best movie, best music.
But now i will speak about the movie discs. The sound on dvd and bluray is weak. English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 on the bluray, but not as good as the original cinema sound mix. The music is quiet, the effect is quiet. On the discs, in the duststorm, when they are closing the door in house, the windsound is end. But in the cinema, the windsound continue after closing the door. Almost vibrate the house.
This is just one example of the many. I am very dissatisfied. The bluray and dvd dont give the original feeling of the Interstellar movie. How can i get the original (cinema) sound mix? Please help!


Boldizar2015-04-14 20:56:16
I listened/watched with my 5.1 setup for theater mode (aka loud). the Bluray sounds good. You a 5.1 system for the sound to actually be 5.1 and the subwoofer is a huge part of it.


Ray2015-04-15 02:16:27
I listen and watch on 5.1 pc speaker at home. Not perfect. But i think, not this is the problem.
The cinema soundtrack and dvd-bluray soundtrack are different. Different mixing.
I watched this movie in cinema 4 times.
Now i can compare cinema track and disc track, because i compare a cam recorded movie to dvd-bluray movie. The sound of cam version is distort and not clean of course, but the sound mixing is better in cam version (cinema version). For example the duststorm windsound after closed door. This is just one example of the many.
Unfortunately DD2.0 and DD5.1 and DTS-HD MA5.1 are different from cinema "version". This best version is lost for me.


Laurens2015-04-18 11:16:34
I know this is a bit of a late response, but I can't find three damn hours every day to watch this movie :p lol. Still, I have watched it over various speaker sets, headphones and everything, and Alan is indeed right about the music being toned down. Especially during the mountains part, that first blow is very disappointing indeed. Still, the sound effects almost tore my windows apart, so it's definitely the way this release was deliberately mixed. I still think that, however in the theatrical the music version was incredibly loud at some points (no complaints though, loved it) they didn't find it suitable for the home release, or they wanted to avoid complaints about the music drowning out the dialogue (which was a common complaint about the theatrical version, I could understand everything just fine but yeah, we have subtitles here in the Netherlands so.....). However, there were also moments where the music surprised me a bit in volume, compared to the big swells (i.e. just after Dr. Mann says "... few men have been" and the organ kicks in or the launch/detach music) so I don't think this is a production malfunction of some sort.


Ulifox2015-04-26 12:47:18
Hey Alan!

You are quite correct. The Score AND Effects have been toned down in those scenes. I was prepared to lower the volumen when that scenes came, but no need.
To be honest, the sound mix in the Blu-ray is better balanced.
It's like The Da Vinci Code Score, some parts were too loud ("over edited" I like to say).


Alan2015-05-11 23:32:59
Laurens, yeah, I figured this toning down was on purpose, 1. because so many complained about the sound in the theatre and 2. like you said, maybe it didn't work right for home viewing - either way, it makes me incredibly sad. I've watched the movie now at home tripled than what I had in the theatre, and still every time something is turned down, I am sorely disappointed - I just can't seem to get used to it.

Ulifox, I'm glad you enjoy it! Maybe one day I can get used to it haha!


Ray2015-05-14 01:35:12
My opinion also, that the music is low. Must be obtain the theatre movie sound disc. Sorry for my english.


Ray2015-05-14 01:39:47
The music volume is low.

Did you listen through the whole track? They both have similar cues at the start.


Murph 2015-05-04 21:53:24
It says watertower music. I thought they sounded really similar and it never got to the main theme. It wasn't stay. I bought the CD like a month or two ago so I know exactly how it sounds


Anonymous2015-05-04 22:23:12
Are you sure? Cause from what I hear the Watertower version is the "good" one. Dreaming of the Crash and Stay are similar, you're sure that Dreaming of the Crash is pressed on there twice?

I know this question does not really belong in this thread specifically because there are more HZ-scores that the support the Headphone X app, but I ask it here anyway because I was just listening to the Interstellar score in '11.1 surround sound' and I am wondering if it's just me or does the stereo mix of the score sound way better than this 'remarkable technology'? I mean, sure the app makes it sound a little bit more surround-like but everything just sounds very hollow and not really clear, like I am listening to the music while my ears are stuffed. When then switch to the normal (say the iTunes version) of the score, everything sounds way better (and I have tried this over various headphones and I experience the same thing with all of them. Did anyone also notice this or do I happen to own three crappy headphones (which I am very convinced I do not :p) and am I missing a breathtaking experience here?


Boldizar2015-04-30 17:34:59
I am suspect sure the XApp files are lossy which really defeats the purpose.

I currently own the intstellar light priojection vrsion of the soundtrack it is not listed on there, thats why i asked about this particular track, is there anyway of getting the complete score ,as i understood that this was the complete version , but it appears not sadly


Laurens2015-04-30 15:43:36
The complete score was released on the FYC site of Paramount (just google 'paramount guilds 2014 interstellar score' or something like that) so you should be able to find that. Mind that this is the score as it appears in the movie so you won't find any bonus content in the complete score like the illuminated edition includes. This means that day one dark cannot be found on the complete score (which has terrible audio quality if you ask me, but that aside) and I can't seem to find any legal download of the track. I think because it is 'just' a re-mix of the beginning of 'Dreaming of the Crash' and 'No Time for Caution' they did not release this particular track officially. You still should be able to find an illegal download but I understand that you prefer the official download as it has the best audio quality and you don't have to worry about viruses... I myself would also like that this track would be released officially but hey, we've got plenty of interstellar music already :). Plus, since you are one of the lucky ones to be able to purchase the illuminated edition, you can enjoy it even more!

Megalith reply Replies: 3 || 2015-03-24 04:02:51
So now that the Blu-ray is out, which version of No Time For Caution do you guys really prefer? I actually think the album version (Hans' version) is the better version. The film version doesn't sound as pure to me, and you can really tell the organ and chants were just kind of thrown in there.


Boldizar2015-03-24 12:42:15
I like yourfavoratemusic's most recent film version. It sound really close to what I remember seeing. What I prefer about the film version is that the cue begins as Han's version, with the sweeping, yet constrained string walls. Then on the repeat the Organ breaks through that "barrier" implied by the string sound. It fits the scene (and its implications) really, really well. The Music Editor made the right call.


Zimson2015-03-24 13:41:25
I prefer the album version too. The adding of the organ took away a lot of the dramatic effect.


Johansson2015-04-27 20:05:30
I prefer the movie version, hands down.
Love the organ and the powerful crescendo. The album version just does not do anything for me those damn strings everywhere. The addition of the strings make it sound like any other soundtrack. Nothing really special.

Please release the movie version also, preferably in FLAC format or something similar. And by having released both versions all fans are happy.
