Bayhem - Balfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers though.which films has this small army of ghostwriters ???!!!!!!You say Balfe worked on the last Transformers(2017). Okay. He may have been called by the Paramount. However, his involvement with the franchise in 2005 and in the following years happened because of the RCP and Zimmer's direct involvement in the project. There in 2005, 2007, 2011, 2014 he was a guest of RCP/MV and no received no call for help of the Paramount. There is no other way.he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter .<br>.....................................<br><br><br>I've asked him a lot of stuff. We're Facebook friends. And yes, I know he worked on the first one. I clearly said it a couple of times in my replies here. He worked on the first one and the second one as well. But if you try to imply that Balfe deserves the credit for these scores, you are way, way off the mark. And it's very disrespectful to Jablonsky. Very.<br><br>Now, clearly you like Balfe a lot. Fine. But please don't undermine a far more experienced and successful composer like Jablonsky, just because Balfe is the "hot MV/RC composer" at the moment. We, the Jablonsky fans, certainly didn't act that way in 2007 when Jablonsky's name was everywhere and people were going crazy for the Transformers score. No one denies that Balfe worked hard on the Transformers films. But he's not the "main guy". Just like a lot of MV/RC composers have worked on HIS scores and they're not the main composers. You think Balfe scores all of his movies alone? Nope. Like any other successful and busy composer out there, he's supported by a small army of ghostwriters.Studio = Paramount and he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter . I did !!!!!!Balfe never worked for Jablonsky =========================================<br><br>By "worked for Jablonsky" I meant he worked ON Jablonsky scores. And as James said, it's all MV/RC anyway. They all know each other and help each other. The first Transformers movie started post-production at the end of 2006. Back then no one knew who Balfe was (aside from the biggest MV/RC fans). His big break arguably came in 2009-2010. Years after the first Transformers movie. So no matter how we spin it, he still came after Jablonsky. Jablonsky is his senior and obviously has much more experience. And we have to respect that. <br><br>That was my point.
Should have gotten one for Interstellar, not this."Strength And Honor" is a forerunner to the main theme of King Arthur and also the theme for Transformers!<br><br>I was listening to the soundtrack and unwittingly the music sent me to these two other movies. :Dhe says he was brought in by the studio.<br><br>-----------------------------------------------<br><br>Studio = RCP = Hans Zimmer credit as producer of the score.<br>In end of day is the same thing.Maybe a honorary in the future.Bayhem - your wrong on a couple of points . Balfe never worked for Jablonsky .In a recent podcast he was asked about Transformers and he says he was brought in by the studio.seems the same with the lastest Film also.its pretty obvious the temp for the end is 13 Hours also.
A "spanish" score. This is great!An Oscar (or at lease a nomination) for Dunkirk or Blade Runner ; it would be great from the academy to reward this kind of score. In the last decade, only Gravity had also this kind of """""sound desing""""""" score.I think you're forgetting that Balfe also ghostwrote The Lord of the Rings<br>==================================<br><br>Hahaha, but of course! Howard Shore and John Williams are actually Balfe alter-egos. He's actually 155 years old and he's solely responsible for all of these iconic scores. Hell, I heard he did some additional work on Psycho as well. And Gone with the Wind. lol!<br><br><br>Now, let me say something else in regards to the claim that Balfe did this score. All kidding aside, it would've (I guess...) made sense to make such a claim if this score was done by someone UNtested. But this is Jablonsky we're talking! He's one of Balfe's mentors. Look back and you'll see that Balfe started working not only on Zimmer scores, but on Jablonsky scores as well.<br><br>So yes, Balfe is good and all, but let's not act as if he's "the greatest in the world". And let's respect and NOT undermine the more senior MV/RC composers who gave the guy a shot. Thank you.If he does I hope it's not for Dunkirk.Lynk, you should be able to just type the individual times into a column or row in Excel, select them all and the sum will be given at the bottom. Alternatively I use this sometimes: calculator. net/time-calculator<br><br>Also...HOOOOOOOOOOOLY shit that last track. My entire mouth just filled with saliva. :O
@Kusi<br><br>Each time Film Music Reporter or similar websites reveal full album details I see individual track lengths but usually total running time is not provided. I am often curious to find out what the total running time is. It is fairly straightforward to do the math myself, of course, but it takes time. What I am looking for is some web service, Excel template/formula or whatever quick and easy-to-use tool one can suggest that allows me to type in individual track-lengths and get the total running times as the output.Based on what you'd like to calculate it? MP3, CD....?jaa. but i think he will never get his second oscar...:-(Yes!

Interesting But Action Score For Harry Gregson-Williams With An New Additional Music By Stephanie Economou in Another Ben Affleck Movie 2016

ARE U HUMAN?

While I'm always happy to see HGW get new assignments, I'm also always a bit disappointed when it turns out to be a thriller (which is the case nine times out of ten with him, these days).

I want to hear him in Narnia/Kingdom of Heaven mode again. The only music like that he's written lately are his three cues from Exodus, which are really great, but it's not enough... :(


Saurabh2016-12-18 02:18:43
I guess it's the kind of approach Affleck prefers from HGW. It's the same basic style heard in Gone Baby Gone and The Town where you have an ambient soundscape aided by some slow strings and a guiter.

HGW is extremely adept in writing some aggressive orchestral cues as in KoH, Narnia and Prince of Persia. Hitite Battle was my favorite track from Exodus. Too bad he doesn't do many such projects.

And given the outstanding work he has done with Ridley Scott, its a shame he won't be doing Alien: Covenant.


Edmund Meinerts2016-12-18 11:39:11
Yeah, Affleck seems to have assumed the "director who gets HGW to provide boring thriller scores" mantle from Tony Scott. I'm not really sure what it is with Scott...earlier in his career he would get scores with big themes, Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, even Enemy of the State to an extent. But from Spy Game onwards pretty much all the scores to his movies fell into the same boring thriller-score pattern. Wonder what happened to turn him off to bold thematic film scoring? (Then again, I wonder that about most of Hollywood these days...)

"Hittite Battle" and "Tsunami" were both great. A little teasing glimpse of the HGW of old.


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-18 11:52:00
I "mostly" agree with Tony Scott's score BUT Déj&#224; Vu is fantastic in every way, and it has lots of themes... lol


rockhound2016-12-18 14:41:09
Days Of Thunder, Crimson Tide and Enemy Of the State are simpson/bruckheimer productions. Thats why these scores have big heroic themes and an epic feel. but if u listen to The Fan, thats already harry gregson-williams style, although its a zimmer score. i really liked the team tony scott/harry gregson-williams. its a special thriller music style with a very specific sounds. afflecks Gone Baby Gone was also very lovely with a beautiful theme and a couple of nice motifs here and there during the suspense stuff. the new movie has a different setting than the other affleck movies, so maybe harry is using less electronics and more orchestra.


Hari Haran2016-12-18 19:27:03
Edmund, hush.

The amount of people wanting Trent Reznor to score his upcoming Batman film frightens me.

I'd rather have HGW in thriller/superhero mode for Affleck any day, in comparison.


rockhound2016-12-18 20:08:21
sound clips on amazon.de. the music sounds great and nothing like The Town or the tony scott movies.


Brent2016-12-18 20:08:25
^ Harry better score that Batman film.


Ds2016-12-18 23:49:44
I hope HGW scores Affleck's Batman movie, seems like an obvious choice actually. Affleck keeps his relationship with HGW, and Batman remains in RCP territory. Nice deal :-p


JamesT2016-12-19 04:29:11
Love the sound clips and excited for the release on Friday!

Tracks like Ybor City remind me of early sounds of Smilla and Deja Vu; Three Years, Four Months has a Passionada and GBG flair to it; Loretta Figgis is beautiful!

Hybrid: any idea who is doing the vocal work? Lisbeth Scott??

I'm also really looking forward to The Zookeeper's Wife!

wait, HGW is not doing Alien:Covenant? I thought he confirmed before that he is doing this!
