Well, most of the process for this score was based on a collaborative effort by the BHD Band (Zimmer/Brook/Eastman/Pereira/Tillman).<br>The themes are HZ (Leave No Man Behind Suite aka "Brothers", the string progression from Still, Tribal War).<br><br>HZ wrote most of the thematic cues from the beginning of the process : the opening of Hunger and Of the Earth (with added lyrics by singer Baaba Maal).<br>Tillman improvised the electric cello from Ashes to Ashes.<br>It appears Craig Eastman arranged the Vale of Plenty track. Bakara was written by Jeff Rona.<br>Mel Wesson wrote the Flight to Bakara ambient section from Chant.<br>Mogadishu Blues is an Heitor Pereira cue.<br><br>Jim Dooley and Trevor Morris helped on Tribal War (film version) - the beginning of the final battle.<br>Ilan Eshkeri contributed to After the Crash and segments of Rescue.<br>I remember seeing the BHD Band jamming with the "Hold Your Fire" track in the behind the scene.SD and superultramega are right. It’s the end of “2m17 For Old Times’ Sake / Applied Sciences” which fades into “2m18 Risen from Darkness”https://youtube.com/watch?v=n13_EeBx69g<br>I managed to find the clip on youtube. I was asking about the music playing during this scene. Doesnt sound like the second mentioned track either.I haven't seen much discussion of this, at least not on the BHD pages. so I'll bring it up...<br><br>What credits do we know on this score, if any?A masterpiece!!!!Much better from Live in Prague. Sherlock Holmes fantasy and Mission Impossible 2 is truly Fantastic!!! There is any chance for Blue-ray???
Final trailer is out, looks GREAT.  The shuttle spinning reminds me of Interstellar/docking/NTFC.

... Partially ?


Anonymous2018-06-25 21:36:36
The cues that crossfade into one another on the official album have the same length on this "session" thing. Surely that is not how "sessions" are presented like...


Mr Tweedy2018-06-26 10:28:58
Looks like a combination of the official CD and a few unreleased tracks that ended up on the internet 6-7 years ago...


Edmund Meinerts2018-06-30 14:55:03
Yeah the amount of actual new music on that thing is pretty negligible, less than 5 minutes total of short cues. A lot of what looks like new stuff here are just shorter cues that were combined for the OST (e.g. "Poster" and "Mud Fight" are the two cues that make up "Rocky, a Fake All Along"). Unless you're desperate for clean beginnings/endings, these are the only tracks that actually contain new material:

Ginger's Dream (a nice soft take on the main theme by HGW I think)
Our Way Out
Our Future
2nd Roll (only the last 30 seconds)
Chicken Feed

It's definitely not a true sessions leak. But the album was already very comprehensive as it is and the movie's only 84 minutes long, so I doubt we're missing much (if anything).


Hybrid Soldier2018-06-30 18:03:24
Note in the soundtrack, "Into the Pie Machine" is the Powell alternate (used in the film) of the middle section of HGW's "A Really Big Truck Arrives".

So the release has both the film cue & the alternate.

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. ;)

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.

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.
