What we know about Lorne's work on it? He do "Ranaway Train" aka "The Railroad Waits For No One" or "Finale"? And Zanelli did only "Finale"?Well, considering there's a lot more advanced orchestral writing in a lot of Transformers: The Game (which was composed by Jablonsky and Flood), than in many of Steve's other projects, I can't help but feel the more advanced stuff here was Flood too. Plus Flood's contribution to "Flying Battle" in D-War kind of makes him seem like the more advanced orchestra composer.Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: <br><br>Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)<br>Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)<br>Wonderland (Mark Theme)<br><br>Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.
Some credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: Flashback, and Flying Battle<br><br>Sadly no credits for Pieter A. Schlosser that I've been able to find...The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite. <br><br>It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.<br><br>I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door. <br><br>Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)
Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there MikealTypical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.
Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.

Hi Hybrid, not sure where to post this, but BBC recently released a preview to Planet Earth II, composed by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea, Jasha Klebe.

https://www.facebook.com/bbcearth/videos/1253466768020210/

Do you have more information about this? I heard that Zimmer created the main theme/title theme.

Any news about the longer release of the score?


Anonymous2016-04-08 09:55:45
No, and there won't be a longer release. Enjoy what you already have. :D

I'm pretty sure the theme here is exactly how HZ started his "Moody Bruce New Hero Suite..." :P

A couple of extracts added !


Ds2015-11-21 10:45:29
Beautiful! ... But why is this release so short? Is there only 19min of music in this whole series? I d doubt that :-p


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-21 11:04:50
There's a CD planned in december... Madison Gate Records says this is an "EP"... So I guess the CD will be longer... Lorne will as usual put some more on his website as well...

Wait & see ! lol


Evenstar2015-11-21 18:12:08
good news Hybrid, thanks


Johannes2015-11-22 09:47:28
Hey Hybrid Soldier, sorry for asking, i saw there some questions about A.D. so i would like to know if there gonna be full release or more soundtrack on Lorne´s web site. Thank you!


Kalmi2015-12-26 09:17:43
Hello, does anyone know what happened to the Sony CD planned to be released on 4th December? I can't find it anywhere. It is still listed at most sites but it is "out of stock". However I haven't found any info on that it had actually been released.

Lejti reply Replies: 10 || 2015-11-13 23:36:26
Lorne Balfe did 13 Hours (Michael Bay movie) score, Hybrid any information about the reason why Balfe replaced Jablonsky? I know it never was official Jablonsky doing it, but I was thinking a Bay movie will have a Jablonsky score.


Ds2015-11-14 00:43:36
... and Hans Zimmer is listed as executive music producer. Balfe + Zimmer + Bay, I think we'll get a very good score!!


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:07:00
Who knows what happened... Maybe Jablonsky dropped, maybe Jablonsky was never in, maybe he was fired... That's life lol...


Ds2015-11-14 01:19:17
After so many collaborations, I don't think Bay would have to fire Jablonsky. Surely they came to a point where they understand perfectly each other, Jabs should know how to please Bay. I'd bet on a scheduling issue.


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:21:57
Or maybe Steve had no interest in doing Lone Survivor again ? Especially after on that one only 20% of his whole score was used...


I don't know... But well in the end Lorne co-scored 2 films for Bay already, they know each other as well...


Anonymous2015-11-14 01:25:57
TF2 & TF3?


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:28:23
1 & 2... Especially 1...


Ds2015-11-14 01:33:21
Hmmm that's interesting. Btw, do you have an idea of the kind of role Hans played (plays?) in this project?


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:34:54
Probably like on Terminator... Some synth programming to help "define" the sound, giving constant feedback on the cues, going to all the meetings with production & stuff... That kind of things.


Joshua 2015-11-14 04:45:41
Man this is gonna be weird, Jablonsky, to some extent has worked on every Bay film since Armageddon, 18 years ago! That's a pretty long partnership, hope its just a scheduling thing.


-,-2015-11-14 15:04:01
Please no Lrne Balfe for 13 Hours. He is one of the worst composer from RC. I don`t think, michael bay fired jablonsky, he composed the score for tmnt2 and deep water horizont. i hope he came for transformers 5 back. urgh i dont like lorne balfe!

New Hans & Lorne ! :)


Felix2015-11-08 21:04:26
Great!


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-08 22:46:19
So, new Lorne plus a theme Hans banged out on his keyboards one evening? ;)

(Just a bit of satire, guys...not meant harshly!)


Mike2015-11-12 20:18:24
Well, Edmund, you have a point... with the exception of Megamind and The Bible, most official Hans/Lorne scores have Hans doing the main theme, Lorne doing everything else. Nothing new there. ;)


...2015-11-12 20:52:12
Well at least Hans coves co-credit to Lorne. Brian Tyler is scoring loads of Shows and of course he just did the theme but he's the only one credited.


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-12 20:55:44
That's very true... I could name a few projects he did where someone else did more than half, and yet got a shitty credit... lol But I won't !!! lol


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-12 22:18:59
Why not, Hybrid? :b


Dudu2015-11-12 22:57:06
So...that's 15 projects for Lorne this year. When does that guy sleep lol??has to be the hardest worker in the industry. Can't wait til he gets his well deserved big break!


NM2015-11-13 02:15:31
Lorne is incredible.


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-13 14:12:35
His output is certainly admirable, but sometimes I can't help but wonder whether he puts quantity over quality. He's not a bad composer, far from it, and he's done some things I think are really quite solid - but the majority of his 12-15 scores a year fall into the "competent and forgettable" zone for me. Some of his additional work with Hans notwithstanding, he hasn't yet done anything I'd consider truly great. Composers like Jablonsky or HGW are more hit-and-miss, but their "hits" are much higher than Lorne's best work in my estimation and it makes me anticipate their work far more than Lorne's bi-weekly releases.

If Lorne had a year where he put out 1-2 scores at the level of Transformers or Steamboy or Sinbad or Kingdom of Heaven, that would impress me far more than yet another year of 15 two-to-three star scores.
