Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.Maybe you have a download link?Download link?I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be fun
I love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.Not any more lame than the Balfe cue
Lorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lolSo is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(
Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?That’s literally the best part of the score though. But it’s typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)In ASCAP there is a cue "HUNT DRUNKEN WEIRDNESS" - is this by a chance an alias to "Italian Party", which is absent in ASCAP. Though there are different credits Zimmer/Wesson vs Zimmer/Klebe.

Something I've been wondering, and maybe Hybrid has an answer... Both Hans and Lorne have done the "take 2 to 4 notes and make a crescendo for three minutes" out of it. Hans did it in "A Dark Knight" and "Time," while Lorne did it in Terminator Genisys and 13 Hours.

Hans did it again for the Volvo campaign prologue, and Lorne was producer here. So my question is, who's "guiding" this style? Is it more Hans or more Lorne influencing Hans? Just something I've wondered.


Anonymous2016-07-26 20:30:57
i think hans started the approach (da vinci code did it too) and then lorne learned how to do it and now does it a lot himself. remember too hans was a producer on 13 hours and terminator, so maybe he suggested that approach to lorne, and then lorne suggested it to him right back for the volvo stuff.


Edmund Meinerts2016-07-27 12:45:33
Hans has been doing that since The Thin Red Line!


Mike2016-07-27 16:45:29
Right, he has, but I guess Lorne has done it so much in his own stuff (and Hans has, in some ways, backed off from that approach a just a bit) that now it sounds more Lorne-like than Hans-like when I hear it. Especially in the Volvo thing. If Hybrid were to say Lorne co-wrote that, I'd believe it wholeheartedly.

Awesome track, will you add there some more information where it was recorder and so on?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 5 || 2016-07-24 11:03:48
Still sorting out details about a wide release on digital stores, but I think it's already on Spotify & Microsoft store... :)


Ds2016-07-24 11:30:54
Why is it listed as a Lorne Balfe score on Spotify?


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-24 11:37:49
That's what I say when I say they are sorting things out, a few mistakes were made so far lol...


Mike2016-07-24 15:03:46
Awesome! So glad Prologue is being released.
