He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Very curiousFantastic! Looking forward to that variation on Duel of the Fates! Now the only complete Powell collection I'm looking for is HTTYD 3.It's coming in November!!! This is so cool!!Not referring you, superEXPANDED RELEASE SON!!!!!!!!!! LET'S GO!
You mean that's GREAT news !Now thatís good news!I hear Harry Potter in tracks like "Playful Secrets" and "Labyrinths & Humps". <br><br>Yes i realize Elfman has had similar sounds to those tracks too, but i think Steve is at the very least trying to homage Harry Potter in a few sections. <br><br>And personally I think the main theme is the most Pirates-like, but that's why i said there's still Zimmer influence, (yes i know a few tracks sound like King Arthur too), but it's not overwhelming for the most part.Solo: A Star Wars Story (The Deluxe Edition)<br><br>Coming soon to digital exclusive streaming: over 2 hours of original/unedited music from Solo: A Star Wars Story [as written for the film]<br><br>All cues + the original unedited version of the end credits suite!I never made the statement that only orchestral scores are good. I like the TF movies, Halo soundtracks, a lot of Hans Zimmer works including Interstellar. <br><br>However, i have little appreciation or interest in scores with little to no melody besides basic progressions. I need a heart to my score, not just music that works for the movie.
Agree, solid work, but dosen't sound like John Williams, more like Danny Elfman.<br><br>Also, the main theme sounds like Pirates of the Caribbeanwhat an incredible album! it is getting very close to my personal favorite which is dunkirk. there is so much mastery in both. one thing that dunkirk has that this album doesn't have is a sense of repetition. both albums have some kind of non-finality. with dunkirk, i feel transported back to the beginning. with this one, i am not sure what comes next.<br><br>Hans and team probably have their share of anecdotes but here's another one.<br><br>i was playing this one day and my friend's daughter asked me if this was from... she hesitated and asked: the dark phoenix movie? i was astonished. she is 12 and probably not into movie scores. but she was able to pinpoint the right movie from a random part. that's something many aspire to. especially with the millions of super heroes movies out there!<br><br>i told her how impressed i was and went on unleashing my Hans Zimmer collection onto her haha :)Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.
Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',I do kinda prefer the 2014 score over the KOTM score, but McCreary's work does deserve more love than just being called a 'retreat of the original theme'.<br>It also deserved to be heard more, but the movie's sound mixing was terrible.Wasn't expecting to see someone else here for the same reason. Really hoping those two soundtracks return, they're great for studying music.

Not sure how I haven't seen this video before. Throughout this conversation it seems like Zimmer almost admires what his "student" Djawadi became and wht=at he managed to accomplish, his work in Game of Thrones in particular.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDJeo67LqWA

This video was amazing to watch. If the master of film-scoring himself finds Djawadi's work so exceptional, I think it means everything.

Ramin is truly a mastermind. Ive been enjoying his GoT scores ever since around 2013, but this one takes it to a whole another level. Months later I can't stop listening to it.
Iv'e always said Djawadi is the next Hans Zimmer


Macejko2020-02-14 14:50:11
You. I like you.


MrZimmerFan2020-02-14 17:54:23
His first works, specially Deception, are not that good (the first season of GoT, musically, is not great, is mostly okay, at least to me, the next season are much, much better), also Prison Break, aside from the main theme, is not speacially engaging.

But when you enter in MoH territory or Pacific Rim, there are interesting material and strong scores (Warcraft or Dracula Untold, are tremendously entertaining), but in this time, give us also those awful scores for Gears of War (Judgment at least have a theme, even is still truly bad)


DvirBA2020-02-14 18:01:40
@MrZimmerFan: the Game of Thrones soundtracks are relying heavily on growth. The first seasonís soundtrack is great IMO, but just like the characters of the show the music evolve throughout the 8 albums in a way Iíve never seen before to reach unbelievable heights climaxes.

Not a lot of people do that as good as Djawadi does, and that is why I find Djawadiís strength mostly in serialized progressing shows than in movies for example


MrZimmerFan2020-02-14 18:03:04
But the themes are better orchestrated in next seasons more the first one, and more thematic and better written.


MrZimmerFan2020-02-14 18:04:09
Also, Westworld, musically is far more interesting, in tv-written Djawadi we talk.

Ramin Djawadi will compose The Eternals


Dan2019-11-13 21:00:09
Last week, the IMDb page said Joseph Trapanese is scoring it and next week some other composer will probably be listed there. Amazing that some people still think of IMDb as a reliable source for this kind of info.


Shince Thomas 2019-11-15 19:15:23
But still it would be awesome if Djawadi is composing The Eternals

Any news on the soundtrack for Jack Ryan season 2?

Iamtommie44 reply Replies: 1 || 2019-06-20 23:27:46
So apparently a new score by Djawadi is released tomorrow.

An animated film called 'The Queen's Corgi'. Never heard of it. But curious to hear what Djawadi does with animation.
I know he did one before, but That was quite a while ago, and he has grown quite a bit


Knight2019-06-20 23:59:44
I have higher hopes for that than his normal work, he seems to do better work when not scoring big blockbuster action. (see The Mountain Between Us, one of his best scores)

Just heard the cue 'Jenny Of Oldstones' and OH MY GOODNESS!!! what a bless for the soul and heart it was. I'm no GOT-fan, so I don't have any connections to the series, but that cue was so intense beautiful that i shared a tear while hearing at it.

somehow that melody seems to be familiar to my ear, but can't remember nor can't i say where i have heared it. Was this completely composed just for GOT? Or does anyone know where this melody got its inspiration?

a masterpiece of a cue. wished it was longer and would develope a la 'journey to the line' or 'time' from zimmer.


Kingfannypack is the MILFcommander2019-06-19 08:03:08
Jenny of Oldstones was an old song in Westeros about a common woman named Jenny of Oldstones, a strange woman who a Targaryen prince rejected his claim to the throne to be with. Before a big battle, a character sings this song and a montage of the various characters plays as they prepare for battle. So that is the melody. The lyrics go like this:

High in the halls of the kings who are gone,
Jenny would dance with her ghosts;
The ones she had lost and the ones she had found
The ones who had loved her the most;
the ones who've been gone for so very long, she couldn't remember their names
they spun her around on the damp old stone
Spun away all her sorrow and pain.
And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.

They danced through the day and into the night
Through the snow that swept through the hall
From winter to summer and winter again
Till the walls did crumble and fall
And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.

Medigo2019-05-20 22:54:07
I think The Bells is split around the middle (at 1:40), and the 2nd part goes after The Last War


Iamtommie442019-05-20 23:38:29
I checked multiple times in the episode. It all before The Last War. But in the epiaode it is a longer cue


Medigo2019-05-21 01:05:52
I know that much, the first part has some extra loops in the show.
But I am 100 % certain the part after 1:40 only plays later, when Jon Snow is forced to start fighting again

Really, I don't know how he does it. This score is sooo good. It's frightening, romantic, thrilling & adventurous all in one!. I'm happy there are some small cues on the album not used in the season. And his choral use is absolutely out of this world!!!

Might be the best of the the GoT scores. But it's a tough one between this and season 6
