I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitI saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitHonestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.Pete you are funny, although u demand from others to talk about the actual soundtrack from this page, you start to talk also about another soundtrack. but ok.... i think Forgotten is a very boring track and adds nothing to the actual scene. a variation of his theme from the track Hero would have been much more intense for the ending. sadly we got 9 boring minutes of thematic development and instrumentation. Lorne can do much better as the track Hero from the same soundtrack shows.
Zimmer got X-Men: Dark Phoenix this year. And I have a hard time believing he is only scoring that film this year. Zimmer always does more than 1 film a year.No need for petty cursing .<br><br>We can discuss the soundtrack instead ! <br><br>Forgotten is cool track.Itís definitely one of Bayís best movies. Wish he would make more drama based film obvious with some action. Canít cope with more robots ! The ending of the film is so emotional and this track gave goosebumps at the end. Did sound very similar to the end of The Last Knight"Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subject."<br><br>Ok, so someone else gets us on this topic, an arguement occurs, and NOW, only when you've realized you're losing the arguement, do you decide that this page is only for 12 strong. Which it's not. This is a forum we talk about whatever we want here.<br><br>But what a childish and pathetic attempt at avoiding our points. Just dismissively saying "Boring! Change the subject! My ears can't handle this criticism!!! Wah, wah, wah!" I guarantee you the next step after this is going to be petty cursing.Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subjectUpset about success? Sounds like someone doesn't know a thing about reasonable criticism. :p<br><br>If anyone likes Balfe, then good on them. I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world. Especially if people are still gonna be excited about hearing the work of someone else when a different person is hired (i.e. what JL might've been).
Can we please change the subject !!!!!!!!it is so boring now.This page is ment to be about the sound track to 12 StrongThere you go again, accusing me of being upset about Balfe's success when I never said anything like that. Stop putting words in my mouth.AgreedThe point is Edmund and others  donít need to keep getting upset about Balfes success.Dont reply and just focus on other conversations.No one here is interested in hearing anyone bashing any of the great composers on this site from Remote. Grow up or move on.Appreciate the voice of support. :)
Good god, this Balfe/Anonymous guys is wreaking havoc! Good thing Djawadi's fans are calmer than Balfe's.Jesus Christ, what a mess! What is wrong with you Balfe fanboys? Edmund comes in trying to settle down the situation and add some nuance and you just curse him out? He even admits to liking Lorne, basically states how the top comment is far too harsh, defends Balfe, and all he does against him is call out Michael for borderline bullying someone else into worshiping Balfe.<br><br>After all of that, all you can possibly say in response to him is "go away you John Powell fanboy"? For saying one thing against a guy basically being a mindless fanboy. Which by the way is an unbelievably poor argument because I've seen Edmund criticize Powell scores before. Is Edmund not aloud to prefer Powell? He didn't even bring his music up once in this discussion! Oh no I can see the responses now...<br><br>"superultramegoo go listen to Transformers 5 for the 50th time.we dont need youre stupidumb comments here !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Balfe has won many awardso tyou cant say any thing bad about him you Jablonsky fnaboy.stop with these demoralizing comments.!A Star Wars score that John Williams himself worked on, however briefly. An interesting time to be a film music fan indeed. <br><br>Hybrid, do you know if Powell was already hired before the director switch on Solo?Happy birthday Mr BalfeI have the same concern, but at the same time I'm really really excited and curious to hear what Williams' sensibilities filtered through Powell's voice will sound like. Those are two of my absolute favorite composers (like, honestly, those two and Hans, top three). I just hope Powell can figure out a way to make it sound natural and organic and not forced/awkward. And maybe if Powell doesn't have to worry about coming up with a main theme it leaves him more time to fine-tune the balance between the two composers' voices (or else write cool secondary material). Giacchino only had four weeks on Rogue One and while he did a decent job, it wasn't as smooth an adaptation as I'd have hoped, especially coming from the composer of Medal of Honor. My expectations are higher for Solo.<br><br>I couldn't give two shits about the movie itself but I'm grateful it exists if only because it will give us this exciting, one-of-a-kind score situation. :)<br><br>Also, there's gonna be a Star Wars score with a page on hans-zimmer.com - who'd ever have thought?

ggggrrrrrrrrrr, tictictictic, ccrrrrrrrrrssssshhhhhhh ... that's all I heard listening to the Deepwater Horizon. The movie makes me want but compsition Steve Jablonsky is unbearable listen-only. Gone is the time of the first Transformers. Jablonsky disappoints me more and more to serve us sound design. to believe that he knows more compose MUSIC ...


Bondo2016-09-27 05:12:28
...or more likely the director/producers wanted something more akin to sound design than melody.


Morgan Joylighter2016-09-27 09:11:49
I realize there are some harsh tracks akin to Battleship but if you just skip to the end you will find the final cue is one of the most gorgeous and emotional of Jablonsky's career :)


Brent2016-09-27 09:12:18
Don't always blame the composer. More often than not, it's a combination of director, producer(s) and studio.


Evenstar2016-09-27 11:15:55
Steve said in an interview that they didn't want a orchestral score, so he made it completely on his computer. Check interview here: youtube.com/watch?v=Glr-dgumGgo


MrZimmerFan2016-09-27 11:30:58
The movie is about a disaster with real people, don't fit a orchestral epic dramatic score, more a electronic, dark, gritty score.

Everyone expect orchestral when don't fit in every movie...


Edmund Meinerts2016-09-27 17:32:14
I don't really see how the movie's subject dictates that the score be dark and electronic either. I think both approaches have possible merits and possible disadvantages. You might say that an orchestral, thematic score is tasteless because it would play tragic deaths for "cheap" drama...but if that's your case, then isn't the entire movie also guilty of the same thing? You might just as easily say that by going the electronic route, Jablonsky is neglecting the human cost of the disaster and focusing too much on its mechanics.

I don't agree with either line of thinking, though. A good score is a good score no matter what it's made of. I *personally* don't much like listening to sound-design scores, and I wish Jablonsky had gone for something a bit more expansive for purely selfish reasons. But that doesn't mean I think his approach was an invalid one, and I don't think you should say that an orchestral approach would have been invalid either. It's all about the execution.


Anonymous2016-09-27 18:21:40
Well said, Edmund. And ultimately, the final decision really does come down to the director and his preferences. It must be hard being a film composer right now. Write a score that sounds great on its own but doesn't fit with the tone of the film, it gets bashed. Write a minimalist, more sound-design oriented score, it gets bashed.


Anonymous2016-09-27 18:32:32
And on that note, this is actually one of the more emotionally-driven sound design scores I've heard.


Joshua2016-09-27 19:07:26
I think Steve just seemingly confirmed he's scoring Transformers 5 on his Instagram. Not that i was worried. :))))


Ben 2016-09-27 23:56:04
13 Hours is much better


MOMO2016-09-28 08:31:11
Lorne Balfe 13 Hours Score is only 8/15
a really untalend composer... no passion for music!
this score is so hypnotic and heart pushed


Edmund Meinerts2016-09-28 09:13:09
Not the anti-Balfe clown again...


rockhound2016-09-28 09:29:03
an orchestral or very melodic bombastic score shows the audience always, that they are just watching movie. for a story based on a real tragic event is no score or this kind of score here more realistic. it puts you more in the "reality", because this kind of music sounds more "natural" without giving the audience the feeling, that they are just watching an entertaining movie.


Ben2016-09-28 11:58:58
"a really untalend composer" !!!! You must be deaf !


trent easton navarro2016-09-28 19:03:53
@MrZimmerFan and rockhound

So what you are saying is that Horner scored Titanic in wrong way? And Williams also got it wrong with Schindler's List?


rockhound2016-09-28 22:53:22
Titanic is a love story in a setting of a tragic event. i havent seen Deepwater Horizon yet, but im 99% sure that there is no love story on that oil platform. Schindler's List is a bit too sentimental for my taste. btw: comparing 2 movies with the setting in 1912 and WW II with a movie and its setting in 2010 is absolutely sensless.


Bayhem2017-06-26 10:44:14
Steve provides what the director wants. Simple as that. It's not a surprise that the most beloved Jablonsky scores are for Michael Bay films. Because Bay wants it epic, Bay wants it orchestral, Bay wants it dramatic and emotional. He pushes all buttons and Steve delivers. On the other hand, Peter Berg - the Deepwater director who did a few other movies with Jablonsky - usually goes for sound design scores. In short, he's not as epic and melodic as Bay is. So if you want to blame someone for the fact that you didn't like the Deepwater score, blame Peter Berg.

No Transformers Last Knight thread yet so posting here. The official site got updated with a new piece of music, and holy hell, it's amazing!
www.transformers movie.com

Also pretty sure the last trailer's music was from him too, Age of Extinction had his scores on almost every trailer.


David2017-04-27 01:39:38
Sounds like a suite

And wasn't it only the final trailer that used material from the actual score? It was Lockdown's theme. But what was used in the trailer was exactly what ended up being used in the film.


David2017-04-27 01:40:53
Woops! Made a typo.

What was used in the final trailer *wasn't* exactly what ended up being used in the film ;)


Everan2017-04-27 04:36:01
The first trailer had a bit of Tessa's music at the start, the second a bit of Lockdown's theme, the big kinda orchestral bit, instead of the electronic braaaaams.

Steve Jablonsky Make An Awsome Score For Deepwater Horizon. The Full Electronic Music & Drums From Jon Jablonsky For This True Events Movie With Director Peter Berg, I Like This Movie & The Score.

Like Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross In Patriots Day Score With Ambient,
Electronic & Post Rock For The True Story Of The Boston Marathon Bombings With Director Peter Berg,Like I Said

I Like Both Movie From Peter Berg, Because Those Are True Heroes Who Save People's Life And We Can Remenber The Bravely Of These People.

I was not aware of this film... so this year Peter Berg has not one but TWO films released in the awards season. Seems quite tight, I guess the schedule wasn't working for Steve, who also has the big TF5 coming :-)

Frank2016-10-02 01:23:26
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross seems to be a perfect fit for Peter Berg. He always likes to use ambient music and post-rock for his films and Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross is a very talented dual.


oha2016-10-02 09:37:26
Yesterday, patriots day update Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross composed the Score. Today Steve Jablonsky.... I hope Steve Jablonsky!

I LOVE this score, it's like Nine Inch Nails, a mix of industrial/rock ambient sounds. This and the dark-ambient music of Blair Witch (2016) by Adam Wingard, two of my favorite scores of this month.

People here seem to forget that scores and soundtracks are made for a movie. They are not made as a music album in the first place. Some composers make like more than 2 or 3 scores a year. That's not the same like an artist or band who makes an new album once in 2 or 3 years).

Scores are a really nice extra thing you get from a movie and yes some albums are great to listen to, others with more like an ambient and underscore type of sound can be seen as disappointing and boring. I think it's wrong to give Jablonsky a hard time here because he made a score that will fit this movie, but when listening to it without the movie it can be kind of boring... Composers don't make this music just to bring out a new album for us! They make music for movies and afterwards they can share it with us.

About the movie, I don't think this movie needed some kind of memorable heroic themes. It's a serious thriller and giving this some theme's like Transformers would look and sound ridiculous. I was expecting a score like this.

Yeah, was hoping a bit more Battleship at least, too much electronic underscore or something. But the first and the last 4 tracks are worth it.

If someone "hoping for more Battleship" is disappointed then that's surely a good sign for me. The further away from Battleship, the better. :p


Everan2016-09-22 20:42:34
Well it's my favorite of Jablonsky-Perg working together so. This is more of a thriller suspense score really.


D2016-09-22 21:04:39
Edmund, this score is Jablonsky's closest to Battleship. And I dont mean the bombastic parts of Battleship, I mean the sound design based action cues, with repeated motifs and screeching effects. I like it and I think it's gonna make a terrific theatrical experience... but believe me, you won't like it :-D


Edmund Meinerts2016-09-22 21:54:20
Aw, shit. And just after Jablonsky had won back some of my faith with TMNT2 as well. :/


Everan2016-09-22 22:22:13
Tracks 1, 11 , 12 and 13 are the least Battleship ones. TMNT2 sounds better IMO, more fun too, but those last tracks are cool.
