Cannot freaking wait!"Balfe is one of the few that hasnít got additional writers"<br><br>As if. Just look through this site and you'll see additional guys credited for lots of his scores. Max Aruj, Steffen Thum, Thomas Farnon, Andrew Kawczynski on some projects...he's a very busy guy but I promise you he doesn't do every single second of his 15 scores a year on his own.Bayhem - Balfe is one of the few that hasnít 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...:-(

Nice Music Will Be For Wonder Woman By The Composer Rupert Gregson-Williams. Rupert Is An Good Composer Just Like His Brother Harry Gregson-Williams. i Hope That This Music Will Be Different Than BVS Music.

No Steve Mazzaro? :-o


PetersUr2017-05-04 20:51:35
Thank goodness !!!no drones and boring electronics then


Ds2017-05-04 22:51:20
Lol... like The Boss Baby is full of droning ? Like there is any droning in Hacksaw Ridge? Like a track as "This is my world" from BvS is full of electronics? Just because a composer is capable of writing electronic music doesnt mean he only does that.


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-04 23:12:24
There's quite a bit of droning in Hacksaw Ridge, especially the track of that name.


Anonymous2017-05-05 07:00:51
Indeed. And BossBaby sounds all fake synthy too in most places.


PetersMusic2017-05-05 08:40:01
He isn't a very good composer . Nothing original


Ds2017-05-05 13:04:09
OK, fair enough for Hacksaw Ridge. Maybe Mazzaro is responsible for that track after all... or maybe not. Time will tell.

But what's wrong with sounding synthy? Aside from the fact that you personally don't like synths, of course.


rockhound2017-05-05 15:00:03
it sounds often just cheap and it also doesnt make sense to use a full orchestra, that sounds in the end like synths. then why hiring a full orchestra and waste alot of money?


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-05 16:30:59
I have no problem with synths. I do have a problem with scores that use synths to try and fake the sound of an orchestra - ESPECIALLY when there's more than enough money to get the real thing. The absolute worst thing is when they actually do get an orchestra, but then cover it up with synths anyway. Hans and the RC guys can be really bad about that sometimes. There's a certain charm to his earlier work where that was done mostly for budgetary reasons, but now that he's the biggest composer on the planet there's absolutely no excuse. Except, of course, that he gets too attached to the sounds of his own keyboards. :p


JBSO992017-05-05 17:09:11
So electronics sounding like orchestra is a bda thing? What about TRON Legacy? Because I'm pretty sur many parts were synth strings and so and it sounded amazing. Also, they manage to mix synths and real orchestra at parts (I think in Flynn Lives) and they nailed it!


JBSO992017-05-05 17:10:17
bad*
sure*
Sorry for the typos...


Gustic62017-05-05 19:47:36
There are good sounding synths ..... and cheap sounding ! Zimmer always used to sound original and then the likes of a Chappie started sounding not like hi and generic


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-05 23:03:14
Tron Legacy is a pretty bad example to be honest, because that score is great at keeping things clean. The orchestra is clearly an orchestra that is allowed to breathe organically, and the synths are clearly synths and have their own very distinctive textures and colors. None of this muddy mixing of the two in the middle somewhere that Zimmer likes to do.

If there's synths in there to specifically replace or sound like the orchestra, I missed them.


mpolonest123 2017-05-06 00:50:10
I don't understand the hate that Mazzaro gets (although I'm personally biased because I love synth scores and think Chappie is a masterpiece) and he has shown a great knack for writing purely orchestral music. Joseph Trapanese on the other hand.....

Something like Chappie is definitely a throwback to Vangelis, where you do get that "faux-orchestra" synth soundscape. IMO Chappie is a great example of Zimmer doing a largely synth score correctly, as opposed to Inferno which conceptually was interesting but came out as a mess.


JBSO992017-05-06 12:08:55
I think the hate he gets it's in part from the people who feels like he doesn't have a proper own voice and he, most of the times, he just produces synths and so. For me Chappie had some very good parts, but at other parts I felt like I was listening to some noises, but then you have tracks like The Outside Is Temporary or We Own This Sky and this are truly great themes.
Also the tracks from Man of Steel & Batman v Superman were his name appears are some of the best of the albums, so I think it depends on what he is working on


Peteu2017-05-06 12:39:33
Hans needs to get back to working with people like Balfe. Actual composers - . Really looking forward to hear the wonder woman theme again in this film .


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-06 12:46:23
You might want to hold on regarding HZ's theme... I spoke with a bunch of people who worked on that score and the theme only appears a couple of times, it's not central or anything.


Everan2017-05-06 15:56:34
The theme is still in so that's great! Musical continuity is always a win.


Mike2017-05-06 16:15:39
That's a shame if that is true about the theme . Even the trailers are now strongly
Using the theme . It would be a mistake not to use it


Hedon2017-05-08 15:20:52
They should have gotten Steve Mazzaro to score it. Then the theme would certainly be used a lot, as Steve is very close to both Hans and Tina Guo who performed the theme in BvS. And we know Steve can create epic sounding music.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-08 15:53:53
You don't get it, they don't use the theme much because it just doesn't work...

Honestly, think a second and try to develop that "theme" ! It's impossible !! It's not even a theme, it was just an action cue motif, an "announcement" of WW in Bat v Sup... It got popular but apart from an action scene, you can't do anything with it ! And Warner tried, believe me !!


Martiane2017-05-08 17:32:45
They are using it on every advert and trailer for the film . In my opinion , there is a lot you can do with Zimmers theme. It's one of the most memorable super hero themes in recent years. It's like The Terminator theme - powerful


Mephariel2017-05-08 18:50:04
The problem is, it is not a theme that can you easily transition in and out of. You can play it and play it...but that it.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-08 19:36:12
Exactly, you can't slow it down, you can't really rearrange it...


mpolonest123 2017-05-08 20:07:49
You can hear the theme being played on strings at the very end of the "Alley Fight" clip they released.

I'm sure the WW theme will be worked in at the right moments (for sure the end credits) but Hybrid is right in it not being a developed idea. What I'm personally curious about is what tone the score will take, considering DC is trying to shoot for a lighter feel.


forced2017-05-08 20:11:32
Hybrid's right, it's a riff, not a theme. It was cool in context.

In the trailer it sounded forced in.


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-09 00:05:42
In full agreement with Hybrid. It's a cool riff for an action cue...but can you hear that theme being twisted into something that's quiet, intimate and emotional? Or stirring and heroic? It would be cool to hear them try, but honestly the best composer in the world wouldn't be able to make that sound natural.


David2017-05-09 00:33:01
Respectfully Hybrid, I disagree about slowing it down! Remember the scene when Diana is in her hotel room and Bruce emails her the photo of her and the rest of the files? Her theme is playing and it's slowed down. And it really works! At least I think it does. I think it sounds great :D

I hope this is as good as Hacksaw Ridge was. I loved this score and it looks like Rupert is able to create great heoric themes and good action themes (well, in this one he will use th Wonder Woman theme I suppose)


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-04 16:36:38
I hope it's as good as the second half of Hacksaw Ridge. First half was not that interesting to me. :p


JBSO992017-05-04 21:54:02
Well, yeah. The first part had some beautiful themes like Climbing for a Kiss, but the true highlights were in the second half. I specially love I Can't Hear You, Praying & Historical Footage.

By the way, I love the new cover of the album!
