Less = more,  Hans doesn't need improvised jazz notes added in driving miss daisy and so on..  they we're never there in the first place, this player feels most of the time as a fall by the wayside......   <br><br> Pirates. Has gone Well in las Vegas, Ok it Will go better and better in time...<br><br>i do like the Dudok, Thats not what i Sa&#239;d ... the point is  always trying to find More notes in the theme/ part he must play,   You can't. Push iT  to much......  Thats not Hans zimmer's philosophy,    A. Fifth wheel on.  A car.    We shall see it's not easy to do a new tour........    "creator of the universe.  God".  There's No such thing. As god,   Or.  Actually H&#232; is standing on the podium. Called.  Hans!*****Warning Spoiler alert*****<br><br>https://youtu.be/REFqUvJ6HYYVery true.<br>The film definitely comes first, and Hans' score in context is incredible. It's just a little funny that they kept the 'flavor' of the theme with the Spanish guitars but never state it.I recently listened to Duduk of the North and I thought it was an excellent piece of music.<br>But, you know... a good idea doesn't always make the "perfect" idea. You can't keep everything.<br>I love how Gladiator turned out: The score in the film has a flavour and a consistency that is pretty unique, a wonderful achievement as it is!You know, I'll never understand why "The Spaniard" theme from 'Duduk of the North' was never utilized throughout this score. I'm guessing it was Ridley's decision but considering how beautiful the piece is, it really is a shame. <br><br>Same thing with the expanded Zod material in MoS
No in my opinion it's not the true pedro eustache just a person behind his screen :) but I like the style of pedro and I hate to hear it live in Paris because I like what it does :)Well, you always get a second chance of course. Good luck!Rainman fades over in Thelma and Louise...has  Thelma & Louise with Guthrie Govan been played yet? Or was that a one off thing at the Orange stadium in France last year?<br>Hi Michael,   ...no, this is not my first "grand tour"... I did 11 years with Yanni [1995->2006], & beg. 2017 --before coming with Hans-- I did all six weeks of international tour with Ramin Djawadi's "Game of Thrones-Live"... I have toured with other artists from the international community [diva Persian super-star Googoosh, Alex Acu&#241;a, and others...] & as a guest to many other artists [Riadh Fehri-Tunisia; Ara Gevorgyan-Armenia; Michel Fadel-Lebanon, etc.].  In live performance we have a direct connection with the audience... recording in the studio is a completely different dynamic... yet my reality is the same in both: I play with all my heart for the Creator of the universe--live or in the studio--that remains the same!
Will be there a CD release?What is the play list for the show this time?<br><br>Anyone who have been on the concerts who can comment on this? Was it the same as last year?Mr. Eustache, it's really you? It's your first grand concert tour? What the difference between studio work and live shows?Sounds like a Lex Luthor Suite, very nice :DForbidden Love is Great...
Hi Mk... I truly have no idea what you are talking about... Sorry you don't like me, but I am the winds soloist for the 2017 world tour.  It is amazing that you do not find ANYTHING good in what I do [?]... just makes me wonder. And concerning "the band has not accepted him yet" you could not be more wrong [please ask the band members... they will tell you how they feel about me]. I see you have your preferences & I respect that, yet many others differ from your opinion. Anyhow, sorry, but I'm not "temporary thing" & I'm in for the whole tour... God bless you!Excellent. Always great when they work together .We all are...<br><br>Personally, I don't think they will release the DVD/Blu-Ray disks before the tour is over. I am thinking of a release in September.Extracts added. This release is just a short EP, the score is not even completed yet, so a proper release will happen when the series is done ! :)What is this?

How come there are some guys like Jablonsky and Zanelli who are listed as additionals here, but don't have any cues credited to them?


Frisbee2013-11-17 16:34:20
Two possibilities:

1) The parts they wrote didn't make it to the album program, or

2) It is known that these guys did write some music for this film, but the exact cues are not known.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-17 16:42:36
Not sure about #1, because I honestly don't think there's much more music in the film than there is on this album.


Mike2013-11-19 04:15:54
Perhaps they did source music not included here...I know that was what Zanelli did on Antz.


Mr Tweedy2013-11-19 22:24:11
Actually Edmund there are a few tracks in the film that didn't make it to the album (5 minutes or so I think).
This could be an explanation. Perhaps some additional composers just helped here and there but didn't earn credits because their contribution was meager too much ?

I don't remember if there was any source music in the film apart from "The Wanderer" (that was not composed by the score team, of course).

I Kinda Sounds Like the Great Escape Theme by Elmer Bernstein


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-11 22:40:22
Well, considering the movie is essentially The Great Escape except with chickens, I think that was the general idea. ;)

So then, I take it JP was the primary guy here?

Ele reply Replies: 1 || 2009-12-16 00:00:00
There's mistake. Geoff Zanelli did not write additional music here.


Mike2013-04-10 04:59:28
Apparently he did. The film is listed on his site.

Steve Jablonsky worked on this score! Wow!

FunnyML reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-12 00:00:00
According to the film's credits sequence, Geoff Zanelli actually did an additional cue.

My excitement just couldn.t be contained when I heard that Chicken Run was being scored by Gregson-Williams/Powell after their amazing collaboration on Antz. I knew we were all in for a treat!
I heard somewhere that main title music is a good way of telling how good the rest of the score is going to be and this is no exception. The "--Opening Escape"-- and "--Main Titles"-- tracks are seven minutes of sheer excitement. The music could be easily inserted into any old-fashioned war movie like 'The Great Escape' (which the film and music obviously parodies).
The introduction of the Mrs Tweedy character, which is gloriously placed in track 3, is at first ominous and then sad to accompany the execution of a fellow chicken.
There are many other sad, heartfelt cues in the score such as "--We Need A Miracle, "--Up On The Roof"-- and "--Rocky, A Fake All Along"--.
There are also many other action filled tracks (tracks 14 and 16).
I almost forgot to mention the kazoos - they are great. They provide a perfect comical feel to the score whilst preventing it from becoming too serious.
There are two songs on the album, one existing and one original - which is very enjoyable.

A great collaboration between the two composers who will continue to produce, interesting and exciting scores for years to come.

***** out of *****

Certainement l'oeuvre la plus aboutie écrite par John Powell et Harry Gregson-Williams.
Les deux compositeurs ont réalisé un travail excellent pour ce film des studios Aardman, déjà créateurs des courts "--Wallace &-- Gromit"--.
L'humour est omniprésent et les différents thèmes sont recherchés, et d'une énergie rare.
Du "--Main Titles"-- au "--Building the Crate"-- survitaminé, pas une seule seconde de musique n'ennuie l'auditeur. Même les deux chansons ("--Flip Flop and Fly"-- &-- "--The Wanderer"--) s'inscrive parfaitement dans le contexte.
L'utilisation des kazoos donne un son nasillard très drôle, en guise d'identité sonore de la bande originale.

Une petite perle que tous les fans de Powell et Gregson-Williams se doivent d'avoir dans leur collection. Magnifique.
