Well, considering there's a lot more advanced orchestral writing in a lot of Transformers: The Game (which was composed by Jablonsky and Flood), than in many of Steve's other projects, I can't help but feel the more advanced stuff here was Flood too. Plus Flood's contribution to "Flying Battle" in D-War kind of makes him seem like the more advanced orchestra composer.Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: <br><br>Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)<br>Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)<br>Wonderland (Mark Theme)<br><br>Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.Some credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: Flashback, and Flying Battle<br><br>Sadly no credits for Pieter A. Schlosser that I've been able to find...
The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite. <br><br>It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.<br><br>I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door. <br><br>Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"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.<br><br>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.)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.
Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there MikealTypical Edmund response!!<br>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 ????????<br>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.Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>
so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.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.Heh, if it's anything like the 1994 score, then you'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.

Is there any right tracklist from the recording sessions???

Mike reply Replies: 4 || 2014-01-05 22:17:47
Was this score similar to Rush (a band score where everyone writes everything) or is it indeed mostly Zimmer? It's older, and his older scores tend to be more traditional in the crediting area. :P


Marc2014-01-06 02:36:53
Nope, Heitor Pereira & Jeff Rona did write themes here. I see no bands, except the VA songs.


Magnus Rex2014-01-06 04:21:30
You misunderstand what Mike meant; I believe he is at least partly right, some of the music was scored like a jam session, where music was improvised that later became honed into the score. Mike didn't mean actual bands did music for the film.


Mr Tweedy2014-01-06 13:15:59
That's right... They were like a band jamming in the studio. The music was recorded and some of it ended up in the film, usually re-arranged depending on each sequence's needs.
But basically, HZ wrote the main themes (Still, Vale of Plenty, Tribal War, Leave No Man Behind) but it was all played and arranged by the band itself during the jamming sessions or later.
Some cues are credited to other musicians (Pereira for Mogadishu Blues, Rona for Bakara, Wesson for the ambient part from Chant...). "Ashes to Ashes" starts with some kind of improvisation on the electric cello by Martin Tillman, then the band starts to play all together.

There's a lot of unused / additional music that never ended up in the film.


Mike2014-01-06 21:35:10
Thank you, Mr. Tweedy.

I'm really curious as who wrote "Hunger" ;P


Mike2013-11-10 03:30:44
I'm curious who did what in this entire score. I imagine off the bat that Zimmer did "Leave No Man Behind" and "Tribal War", but wasn't this score basically a bunch of jam sessions?


MacArthur2013-11-10 17:35:44
I think hunger is Zimmer isn't it?


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 18:02:09
MacArthur, unless you're willing to substantiate that claim, all anyone is going to read is "I HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT ANYTHING" on a post with your name on it.


MacArthur2013-11-10 21:17:21
My question is why wouldn't it be? let's just put it that way.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 21:48:02
There's no reason why it wouldn't be...just like there's no reason why it would. My point is, if you don't have anything more than an "I think," without any reasoning or argument to back it up, then you're contributing jack shit to the discussion. It's like the internet version of talking because you like the sound of your own voice.

When Hybrid says a cue is by a certain composer, we listen because he has access to information we don't have. With you it's just random gut feelings and opinions without any convincing substance behind it whatsoever. Hence, why should we listen to you?


MacArthur2013-11-10 22:01:55
When did Hybrid say that it wasn't Zimmer. I didn't go against what he said If he says it, it's fine with me.

Does it say anything about Hunger being by a different Composer?


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 22:25:08
There's four additional music guys up there, so there is absolutely ZERO guarantee that the cue is by Zimmer alone. Similarly, there is ZERO guarantee that the cue ISN'T by Zimmer alone. Until we know more for sure, there is also ZERO point in slinging your "I thinks" around.


MacArthur2013-11-10 23:17:27
Yeah That I know but the guy on top seem to say that Zimmer didn't have a hand in it at all.

That's what baffled me I wasn't trying to throw in my opinion on it.

Combination of OST, songs used in the movie, music from the DVD bonus and some promotional cues from the musicians of the score... Everything is edited/chopped so that it looks "new", but, it's definitely fanmade.
