But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :PThanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the score
Tom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>
Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.Aplusle, that's really well put actually.Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?
Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensationBalfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.I really liked Richter’s score over balfesI listened Max Richter for years. He is the kind of select or minority composer who does his solo works and soundtrack for movies not so famous. <br>His solo works are really really good with quintet and piano and voice. "on the nature of daylight" is definitely the best. <br>His sountrack is not good as his solo, to be honest. I think "the Leftovers" (2014-2017, HBO series), "Miss Slaone" (2016) and "Mary Queen of Scots" (2019) are cool.<br>If you need some peaceful music for meditation or good sleep, listen to his work.

No! I can't believe this! Gavin Greenaway is writing the additional music for "Spy Kids" with Harry Gregson-Williams, Heitor Pereira, Danny Elfman, John Debney and many-many others. And he's not there!


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-14 12:33:43
Uh...yes he is. He's listed on five tracks in the tracklist right above this comment.

Also, who appointed you Gavin Greenaway's knight in shining armor?


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 12:53:23
Nobody appointed me as Gavin Greenaway's knight in shining armor. I just looked closely. I'm sorry for my behaviour.


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 13:35:02
Besides, the photos of Gregson-Williams, Pereira, Fowler, Meyerson, McIntosh are here. But Greenaway's photo is missing!


joe2017-02-14 14:07:33
@ Michael Poleschuck: Mr. Greenaway, is it you?


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 14:09:25
No! It's just a guy, who visited this site for 5 years as anonymous and decided to take a active part in this and nothing more.


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 14:11:12
Finally!

@ Michael Poleschuck: :D i'm just making a joke, so please don't feel offended. It's cool that you're having the eye for details :)

Having met Gavin, I can confirm he's great.


Unfortunately during an update last year my pal Nicolas (yeah I love to blame others lol) erased all of Gavin's career on this site. I rebuilt it but probably missed a few things. Gavin won't be mad... lol


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 17:08:00
Cool! Interesting story: who was the original composer of the film? And how did it happened that the final product incorporated so many great composers in this?

This score is a whole cocktail of composers. Does anyone know how it sounds? It loks interesting


Lambegue2012-08-05 11:21:05
It's rather good. One can quite easily know who did what, so maybe it lacks a bit of unity, but it is still pleasant to listen. The highlight from the score are mainly the tracks by Elfman, Debney or Gregson-Williams, plus the "Floop's castle". The two tracks by Los Lobos are not bad, but really in another mood than the general score. So yes I think it's interesting to have it, and I remember it being quite cheap.


HGW42012-08-05 19:53:38
I agree! It is definitely worth purchasing. I bought a copy a year ago and I really enjoy it. It is nice to have a variety of composers on this score. I would recommend it for sure.

It's such a weird coincidence that people would pop up and start commenting on this page! I was just reminiscing about seeing this movie as a kid and thought, "Hmmm, I think I'll go find the soundtrack." Is this a new page, or have people never ever commented on it until just now?
