Yo Hybrid, credits for this? Mostly Steve? Mostly Hans? Hans suites and Steve everything else? What about Conrad Pope?
I'd bet my left nut that "Love" is Pope.
Pope did Love indeed.
Love is amazing . He rest is not as good as megamind . Don't think zimmer gave 100% to this
Conrad Pope explains the cue on his facebook. They needed something more dynamic and classical-sounding.
The editor James Ryan also commented:
"Every screening for well over 2 years the last thing we would do was work on that scene and struggle to re-edit the temp. I've never worked on a scene in any movie that had so much riding on the music. The sigh of relief and joy when you delivered your masterpiece was something I will never forget. And watching you conduct it gave me the chills (and a few tears). Bravo!"
By far the strongest piece on the album. The rest is pretty forgettable.
That's amazing to hear from the editor . Wish the rest of the score was as good as Popes piece.
Think Lego Batman is still best animation score this year . Was really looking forward to Boss Baby but seems generic .
You guys are right that "Love" is a great cue. But the rest of the score is just as good, with plenty of ideas and a very cool and memorable theme.
The issue is that this kind of scores requires some patience from the listeners, because it's too crazy, too packed, with so many twists and style variations it's difficult to fully grasp the whole thing after just a few listens.
It's just like any John Powell score for animation: absolutely great music that takes some time to fully digest. So please, give it a few more spins and some time to grow on you before you judge it!
"Love" is an awesome cue and all. I really love it. But I don't understand: could no one at RCP have delivered something like this? Pope was obviously a good pick, but are Zimmer and co. truly incapable of arranging this type of thing?
@Mike(OTM) Not necessarily, I feel like Richard Harvey could easily have delivered something in this vein. That being said, I'm sure the production team probably had their heart set on whatever temps they used for that scene (more likely than not something that Pope either composed or orchestrated) and decided to go directly to the man himself.
It is a bit strange that they would only bring him in to do one scene, as opposed to working alongside Hans and Steve throughout. But it's not unheard of, I guess.
The only person at RCP that could do what Pope did was , is Balfe . Why didn't he get involved especially after the Megamind connection???
This Score Is Awsome, Hans Zimmer & Steve Mazzaro Work For The First Time And Additional Music By Cornad Pope. Is The Same Style Animated Movie Score Like Megamind With Lorne Balfe. Can Wait To See The Boss Baby
Not bad! The "Love" cue has great orchestral moments. At least *** score after the first listen.
So "Love" was obviously done by Conrad Pope. Never heard anyone from RCP write anything remotely close to that style.
But what about the rest of the score? I can hear a lot of Hans in the theme and the action material (a lot of his action riffs and stylings from megamind) but not sure which bits Mazzaro did.
Agreed with your comment on Conrad Pope's involvement.
Goes to show what Hans Zimmer's tunes can become if orchestrated and arranged by someone of Pope's caliber. I hope to see the duo collaborate more often.
Conrad should have been the co composer with Hans I think !. I bet he contributed more than just that amazing cue .
So I agree it's likely that Conrad Pope was involved with the "Love" cue, but watch what's gonna happen...
We're gonna find out that cue is 100% Zimmer, and we're all gonna have our minds blown. Cause honestly, that type of thing happens a lot. :P
Yes ok I then had a look at Conrad Pope. That guys has orchestrated "Jurassic Park" (and many many others) so yes it seems that the "love" cue could have been completely in his hand. And note this is the first Time Conrad Pope is credited as Additional composer here, maybe this is just because of that cue... Now we need to wait for Hybrid , maybe one day we will know the answer.
He's done a few scores (Pavilion of Women is outstanding), but he's better known as a veteran orchestrator for many years for composers like John Williams, Alan Silvestri and Alexandre Desplat. In other words, he knows what he's doing. Quite unexpected for him to show up on an RCP score!
Hans Zimmer And Steve Mazzaro Workings Together As Composer For The First Time In This Movie. Wow!, I Can Wait To Hear The Score And See The Movie
I Still Remember That Hans Zimmer & Lorne Balfe Working Together At Megamind With The Director By Tom McGrath ,The Bible & Son Of God. I Got To Say Hans Zimmer Is The Best Composer I Ever Known And Hear His Music
Yeah, Zimmer and Mazzaro are working together far from the first time here, Mr. Useless Shitpost Man.
Give it a chance, Steve Mazzaro has shown some promise in the past and has never really had a chance to show his talents in a more solo effort. Between this and Pirates, it'll be cool to hear his more orchestral side.
Hell, I still remember when Lorne Balfe was first breaking away from his co-composer status and people were hating on him...
Hey Lorne is not a puppy waiting lol... He has a career, he is not spinning around what Hans does anymore !
