Hello everyone! After watching the film I noticed that about half of music that used in film disappeared at sessions or has different arrangement. Why it's not released? What's the reason for this?As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.
I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be funI love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.
Not any more lame than the Balfe cueLorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lol
So is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?That’s literally the best part of the score though. But it’s typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)

So Balfe is now doing the new Brad Pitt movie Ad Astra?when does he sleep?

Interesting news because I thought they had Max Richter on it for ages ?


ThePhantasm2019-08-29 03:27:43
I love Balfe a lot but wtf this is too much. I was interested in listen to what Max would of done.


mpolonest123 2019-08-29 04:27:13
Yeah this is getting a bit crazy (no hate on Balfe though, man’s making a living).

I think because of his ability to write as fast as he does, more producers tend to trust him with these projects and meeting the deadlines. Also having Lorne on a score usually means a pretty safe bet on the style of music.

I haven’t been keeping up with all of his output as of late (because honestly, who can?) but it seems like you either get “Good Lorne” (MI6, Lego Batman, Geostorm) or “Bad Lorne” (PR:U, Hurricane Heist). Honestly, I would much rather have him focus his attention on some bigger projects where he can write quality music, as opposed to spreading himself thin.


ThePhantasm2019-08-29 18:46:29
Yeah Hurricane heist was horrible, I'd be so excited to hear what he'd do with a super hero movie. It has taken forever

LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere


Miralsice2019-08-23 21:11:35
Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?


johny5552019-08-23 22:22:29
I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...


Ahmad2019-08-24 02:41:53
GITS 2.0? I hope not.


Anonymous2019-08-24 20:55:52
Lorne has nothing to do with interstellar

Soooo... Balfe is scoring the new HBO Series 'His Dark Materials'.

I'm glad that Lorne gets so much work, but I really wanted somebody else for this series.

Lorne is doing so much, that I'm afraid some things will turn out generic. Hope this doesn't happen. But we'll see (hear).

No very excited at the moment, but maybe this will change when I hear it.


Edmund Meinerts2019-08-15 10:32:18
Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.


Mikeal 2019-08-16 22:22:10
Typical Edmund response!!
Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????
Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.


Knight2019-08-16 22:49:56
Nice strawmanning there Mikeal


Steve2019-08-17 06:37:11
Edmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?


Edmund Meinerts2019-08-17 09:23:53
Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :p


Micheal2019-08-17 10:00:27
Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.


superultramegaa2019-08-17 18:41:18
Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;

"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.

Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)


Mephariel2019-08-17 19:48:06
This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door.

Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).

Recently in China, a movie was released called Looking Up, and the soundtrack was released with Steffen Thum's score and main theme/additional music by Lorne Balfe.

It appears that this movie is pretty good.
It has a 88% on RT and I personally liked it a lot!

That track list sound like fun score to me. I can't wait to hear all tracks till midnight.
