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 couldnít help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ĎTerence Malick-yí, ďThin Red LineĒ feel throughout.<br><br>Iím definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I canít comment on what he might have written, but Balfeís 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 itís 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 itís 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"?Thatís literally the best part of the score though. But itís 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 ! :)

this is mgbube score will be released on itunes soon


john2011-05-19 09:15:38
which score? the same as here in mono?
or the real one?


Kusi2011-05-19 09:46:28
What's the release date? Would be cool if this is true!!! :)


DS2011-05-19 10:01:29
Really? Source of this information, please?


Andrew2011-05-19 12:03:36
Source is the recent Hans Zimmer interview with Daniel Schweiger. Hans doesn't explicitly say that it is coming out, or that it is coming to iTunes or anything, but the way he talks about the subject clearly means that wheels are in motion for this one. At least it occurred to me that this time around he is talking about "finding tapes of ideas that no one else have ever heard" and "exchanging ideas with some Disney records executive", all of which seem to be pretty much in the same spirit as the way he hinted those Pirates 3 unreleased theme suites in a similar interview back in the days. We all remember how that then turned into the "Soundtrack Treasure Collection" set.

I think I read somewhere that a blu-ray treatment of Lion King is under way. If there is any release planned for the score, I think it is more sensible for it to coincide with blu-ray's street date. But we will see.


DS2011-05-19 12:18:05
Yeh, I'm familiar with that interview (fingers crossed, though I hope it's the actual unedited complete score and not just a CD of alternates and demos like PoTC got). I was just curious about the iTunes idea which mgbube mentioned, because that isn't mentioned anywhere in the interview.


Dakota2011-05-19 22:31:56
The street date for the Diamond Edition Blu-ray is October 4th. Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy. I had thought the same thing, that maybe there would be a complete score release around the time of the Blu-ray. We shall see.

The release of the Lion King DvD version in the Netherlands will be in fall 2011. Fortunately I have these tracks to make the time waiting for this masterpiece more bearable. I know the movie by heart and I can remind every scene inside my head with each track. Only I can place the emotions that I feel when listening to this music. Thanks for creating this music

Ellie reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-06 00:00:00
I think putting this entire score for sale or even just as a digital copy is a fantastic idea. I would buy this in a heartbeat.

LKHZFan reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-25 00:00:00
At this current point, I would pay big money for even a digital copy of this.

Well the Blu-ray is coming out in the fall, so maybe he'll release it around then? I hope....this is my favorite fim score of all time, and it's also my favorite Disney movie.

And Zimmer recently said in an interview that his mind is not on the Lion King at the moment either, so that means no release yet!

yes man! Can't Hybrid Soldier ask Hans for this? As he asked him before for the inception tracks?
Come on, we need it now. We have waited for sooooo long now!

Cannot wait until this is finally released. The music's so great, they kinda skimped on the original soundtrack for score pieces.

Ravi Krishna reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-20 00:00:00
Me too guys, me too. It would be like my wildest dream come true. Perhaps in time to coincide with the Blu-Ray release of the film? That'd be freakin' awesome!

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-20 00:00:00
The other way around, actually; he might consider asking the Disney people to release it. And he's evidently on good terms with them, so... fingers crossed! :o)

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-20 00:00:00
Zimmer did say that Lion King is not where he's at right now, but that maybe he'll do an extended release someday. He would do it if Disney asked, but until that petition finally gets sent off, let's not hold our breath.

Wanting to purchase this extended TLK score by Hans Zimmer. Please advise.
