It's 2018, everything is shittyLOL so they wanted a score with no themes...Just random stuff against action music....Makes sense.I know this is another random question, but does anyone know who composed the music for Pirates Of The Caribbean Online? There's an album cover that says:<br><br>Music by Hans Zimmer<br>Additional Tracks by New Ages and Amir Baghiri<br><br>But on IMDB it says the in-game music was done by a completely different team of composers. Anyone have any sources, or any validation on which is correct?You guys are hilarious.and that means, tom did the perfect job. they wanted a shitty score and tom delivered. i am sure they would have fired desplat, williams or whoever, just because they would have failed. the task was to compose a shitty score and tom did that. their problem, if nobody buys the soundtrack album or avoid to see the film, just because of a bad filmscore. for us it is great, because we save money.
The fact that the directors insisted on a shitty score doesn't absolve the score from being shitty.Go to JXL's Youtube channel and watch his latest video. He talks about the process of scoring the film. If you have a problem with the score, direct your criticism and complains at the director/producers/studio because JXL delivered the score they wanted. They wanted to stay away from themes and wanted an a very alternative score. If Tom didn't deliver that, they would've found someone else who would've done the job and you'll still complain that it doesn't sound how you wanted lol. <br><br>I've heard a couple of tracks which I liked a lot. <br><br>Stretcher Carry is avaibale on soundcloud. It' merely recreation but it's awesome almost like film version.How can I answer that ?<br><br><br>"At the moment ?" is my only true answer for you lol
Olive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!
I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.

So it seems Zimmer - though credited as one of the two main composers - was barely involved here...Also, to my surprise, my favorite piece of music from the score (the very Zimmer-ish Ladder Chase aka Escape By Ladder) was not composed by Zimmer. Not even by John Powell. So props to Badelt and Zanelli.

I cannot wait 'til the expanded version is released!!!! Thanks Anon!

Edmund Meinerts2015-12-01 12:31:09
This is the version of the score that I have. Can someone help me figure out how this matches to the tracklist on this site? Some of them are obvious, others a little less so ("Long Dies/On the Hunt" is the same as "Doctor at Diner", right?), still others are just confusing. :p

I have the 2-track album version.

Whats the deal with this, Hybrid? Why so short, why is it called Action Demos, etc?

Anonymous2011-04-25 14:22:40
I agree with you on this. Having a 30-minute soundtrack just isn't good enough. We demand the complete film score of Chill Factor!!!!!!

Maybe someone will release it one day on the shrine

I'm sure it's gonna pop up soon...

No word from Hybrid on this?

I'm with you too Iceboy. I wish there was a COMPLETE score of Chill Factor.

Iceboy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Me too. All the other bootlegs are DVD menu rips of extremely short cues, but the "action demos" are the best album for listening to full-length tracks from the score. I wish a complete version would leak.

I wish there were more tracks from the film. Although the picture DID flop, I wouldn't mind listening to the expanded version.

Chill Factor est une oeuvre fort sympathique de Zimmer et John Powell, qui doit beaucoup au motif d'action entendu dés l'introduction de End Credits© 2001-2017 OST
