It's OK, he got to use it for the Kraken in Dead Man's Chest! ;)Less = more,  Hans doesn't need improvised jazz notes added in driving miss daisy and so on..  they we're never there in the first place, this player feels most of the time as a fall by the wayside......   <br><br> Pirates. Has gone Well in las Vegas, Ok it Will go better and better in time...<br><br>i do like the Dudok, Thats not what i Sa&#239;d ... the point is  always trying to find More notes in the theme/ part he must play,   You can't. Push iT  to much......  Thats not Hans zimmer's philosophy,    A. Fifth wheel on.  A car.    We shall see it's not easy to do a new tour........    "creator of the universe.  God".  There's No such thing. As god,   Or.  Actually H&#232; is standing on the podium. Called.  Hans!*****Warning Spoiler alert*****<br><br>https://youtu.be/REFqUvJ6HYYVery true.<br>The film definitely comes first, and Hans' score in context is incredible. It's just a little funny that they kept the 'flavor' of the theme with the Spanish guitars but never state it.I recently listened to Duduk of the North and I thought it was an excellent piece of music.<br>But, you know... a good idea doesn't always make the "perfect" idea. You can't keep everything.<br>I love how Gladiator turned out: The score in the film has a flavour and a consistency that is pretty unique, a wonderful achievement as it is!
You know, I'll never understand why "The Spaniard" theme from 'Duduk of the North' was never utilized throughout this score. I'm guessing it was Ridley's decision but considering how beautiful the piece is, it really is a shame. <br><br>Same thing with the expanded Zod material in MoSNo in my opinion it's not the true pedro eustache just a person behind his screen :) but I like the style of pedro and I hate to hear it live in Paris because I like what it does :)Well, you always get a second chance of course. Good luck!Rainman fades over in Thelma and Louise...has  Thelma & Louise with Guthrie Govan been played yet? Or was that a one off thing at the Orange stadium in France last year?
<br>Hi Michael,   ...no, this is not my first "grand tour"... I did 11 years with Yanni [1995->2006], & beg. 2017 --before coming with Hans-- I did all six weeks of international tour with Ramin Djawadi's "Game of Thrones-Live"... I have toured with other artists from the international community [diva Persian super-star Googoosh, Alex Acu&#241;a, and others...] & as a guest to many other artists [Riadh Fehri-Tunisia; Ara Gevorgyan-Armenia; Michel Fadel-Lebanon, etc.].  In live performance we have a direct connection with the audience... recording in the studio is a completely different dynamic... yet my reality is the same in both: I play with all my heart for the Creator of the universe--live or in the studio--that remains the same!Will be there a CD release?What is the play list for the show this time?<br><br>Anyone who have been on the concerts who can comment on this? Was it the same as last year?Mr. Eustache, it's really you? It's your first grand concert tour? What the difference between studio work and live shows?Sounds like a Lex Luthor Suite, very nice :D
Forbidden Love is Great...Hi Mk... I truly have no idea what you are talking about... Sorry you don't like me, but I am the winds soloist for the 2017 world tour.  It is amazing that you do not find ANYTHING good in what I do [?]... just makes me wonder. And concerning "the band has not accepted him yet" you could not be more wrong [please ask the band members... they will tell you how they feel about me]. I see you have your preferences & I respect that, yet many others differ from your opinion. Anyhow, sorry, but I'm not "temporary thing" & I'm in for the whole tour... God bless you!Excellent. Always great when they work together .We all are...<br><br>Personally, I don't think they will release the DVD/Blu-Ray disks before the tour is over. I am thinking of a release in September.Extracts added. This release is just a short EP, the score is not even completed yet, so a proper release will happen when the series is done ! :)

Can anybody give me a list of the names of themes and motifs in the movie. I would appreciate it.

  Your name :   

Please enter number: 1549 


Macejko2017-03-23 08:27:55
Sure, pal.

Blue female troops theme (heard in "Nameless Order")
Great Wall theme ("What a Wall")
William's theme ("The Great Wall")
Tao Tei (monsters) theme (first heard in "First Battle")
Tovar's guitar motif (briefly heard in "First Battle")

These are the most prominent/identifiable ones.


Joseph Solano2017-03-25 18:06:14
Thanks. Would the Blue Female Troops theme be considered Lin Mai's theme as well? And does Damon's character have a theme?


Macejko2017-03-25 21:46:35
I would need to rewatch the movie to be absolutely sure she doesn't have a separate theme. And the name of Damon's character is William, his theme is listed above :)


Joseph Solano2017-03-28 02:08:15
I wanted to see the movie and never did. Now I know what to listen for when I see it. Thanks for the help!

This score is a lot of fun, honestly. Ramin has written better individual pieces than anything here but I'd say this is his most consistently entertaining album, never really gets boring (although sometimes I feel like he does sort of run out of ideas for action music rhythms and falls back on the same type of percussion a lot). Especially the first five tracks are great stuff, just very fun and entertaining. Love the Chinese choir additions.

Macejko, Mr. Djawadi Fanboy, you've been uncharacteristically quiet about this one, what did you think?


Macejko2017-03-05 10:14:35
Well Edmund my man, I obviously loved this album as well and I think that if we take GoT 6 out of the equation, this is Ramin's best score of the last year.
The first half of the album is a pure bliss for me, and although the second half doesn't pack that powerful of a punch, it's still great. After seeing the movie itself I was pleasently surprised of how many elements of the film were actually given a theme (like Pedro Pascal's character for example), albeit a small one.
When compared to Warcraft (which I also adored), that movie had sort of a primal, brute-force thing going on (obviously related to the nature of the Orcs). On the other hand, TGW is much more sweeping and adventurous and albeit a also fantasy film from the same year, I'd say those two scores are not interchangable at all. It just goes to show that Ramin puts a lot of serious thought into a movie, even if it's not a cinematic masterpiece (which, let's be honest, neither of those films were).

Epic score.
A favorite together with Warcraft and Gears of War 4.

Expanded European CD Edition (with two more tracks & different cover) will be relased on January 13, 2017.


jjluffy2017-01-15 11:05:00
It would seem that it is the digital version that contains 20 tracks. There seems to be only one cd version with 18 tracks.


rockhound2017-01-16 13:44:33
i really like that end song. very nice melody. would be cool to have it on cd.

Macejko2016-12-23 16:27:32
Thanks for the info, pal! I absolutely adore this score. Although it seems that there is only one track composed by Ramin, the other two appear to be songs by some chinese artists.

MB reply Replies: 5 || 2016-12-16 17:18:11
I've already listened to it. So what can I say? Nothing special. Yes, there are some interestings moments like flute and good choir. But... The main theme reminds me Backdraft and Beyond rangoon (this is not good), but in sum the score is 3 stars from 5. Badelt's Promise alot better.


Per2016-12-16 17:32:12
I hardly check out new scores anymore.. but Backdraft and Beyond Rangoon ? .. two of my favorite scores .. maybe I should try this then.

Btw. MB, do you mean the result is not good (even though Backdraft and Beyond Rangoon are), or that Beyond Rangoon (and/or Backdraft) is not good (the themes) ? Certainly Beyond Rangoon have one of the best theme(s) ever imho.


MB2016-12-16 17:42:37
Yes, I mean the result is not good (even though Backdraft and Beyond Rangoon are, which I love very much). Maybe the others don't hear the influence of Backdraft and Beyond rangoon, but I can hear it. The result is like I said, nothing special. But the other side this score hasn't the underscore crap, thats the good side. Strange thoughts))


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-16 17:46:11
It honestly sounds nothing like those scores... lol

It just sounds like Ramin, a more "actiony" Game of Thrones and less "darky" Warcraft, closer to Clash of The Titans...


MB2016-12-16 17:50:05
I mean that there are some elements in main theme which reminds these scores. That's it. I agree that its closer to clash of the titans, but more asian style.


Anonymous2016-12-17 12:57:38
I like it. Esp after the terrible Gears score this is a nice surprise.

Damn, track 4 The Great Wall is amazing!

This flute in Nameless order (1st half) reminds me Beyond Rangoon. This is cool)

Wow, honestly didn't expect this. The string writing and percussion are 100% Ramin but the instrumentation and vocals are incredible. Really looking forward to this now.
