I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*
OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :pHi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

Cheers mateI agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?
Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)Yeah, that theme starting at 1:35 is totally Black Rain! I love it though.So is nobody going to point out that Hans just casually slipped a theme from Black Rain into the middle of "Millennium Theme"...like, note for note? :pI hope there will be an album for Angel Has Fallen by 	David Buckley.PM me on YouTube for further questions.

So Steve's IMDb page has been updated. He will work again with Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg on 'Wonderland' and he will score the comicbook movie 'Bloodshot' with Vin Diesel. 'Bloodshot' will be an interesting project for Steve. Can't wait for the score. As for the Berg movie, I already know what to expect.....Berg's taste in music is well known. I don't expect much surprises.


Brent2018-09-29 10:26:31
Warning: don’t always trust IMDb. But, nonetheless, if any of it is true, I’ll be excited.


superultramegaa2018-09-29 14:44:30
I agree the Peter Berg project will be very underwhelming as usual, but there might be a lot of potential in that Bloodshot movie. The writers' track records aren't the best, and the director has so far only worked on visual effects for video games and such, but a superhero movie should give Steve a great opportunity for his TMNT 2 style of writing. That is, if he doesn't just resort to guitars and electronics... just because the comic is over-the-top violence...


MrZimmerFan2018-09-29 18:48:18
If all Berg's filmography was just like... Mile 22, ugh

Is a good director, three of his movies are amongst my all time favorites.


Bayhem2018-09-29 21:11:24

=====================


I consider that good news actually. He's not an established name yet, it's his first movie and I'm certain he would make sure that everything is as good as possible. And I'm sure he would gladly listen and take advice from someone like Steve who has more than enough experience with big movies.

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.

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 :-)

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.

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.

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
