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.

Celice is a single from the latest album "Analogue" by A-Ha (composed by Magne Furuholmen/ Martin Terefe -- lyrics by Magne Furuholmen). They just used this song on the film -- it was not composed specially for it.

Does anyone know if the music from the site of the movie will be in the score.

P Lomax reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-05 00:00:00
Celice by a-ha should have teamed up with the film,A-ha are a very misunderstood band but they had a great track for the Da Vinci code which has sadly lost its way,I'l bet there was money invloved or Lack of?Hans is good though but A-ha Would have been fantastic!

The a-ha track"Celice" should have been on this.Hans is good but a-ha are Great!

On our News from February, the 27th, we put an extract from a Jim Dooley's Interview ; we could read :
"Hans has all ready... pardon the pun... cracked the code, so to speak. Before I came in to lift a finger, he'd written a 700-bar suite for this score, it's pretty breathtaking, my participation in this is not so much the upfront writer, but more the extension due to the slightly accelerated schedule of production, we've been scoring four weeks from yesterday, so it's pretty tight."

Ron should hired Arvo Part to do the scores.

Myotis , Hans is the composer of the soundtrack so he's of course an arranger of the score :)
Dooley's an additionnal composer ( additionnal music) for this score right.

Richard Harvey also composed the last song "Kyrie For The Magdaleine" ( strange this track isnt listed on this page )

Myotis reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-30 00:00:00
NICOLAS-----WEBMASTER---ONE QUESTION FOR YOU, PLEASE

JIm dooley is credited to the cd as Additional arranger or as additional music?

(If you have the cd released)

im impacient for listenig this score!!!!! the last job of the king Zimmer.

From here you can find quite a lot of information on the soundtrack:
http://www.iclassics.com/productDetail?contentId=64530

And here I have gathered the sound which I hope is from the Soundtrack by Hanz Zimmer which is played as background music for the site of the film. The Style is Zimmer's Style and if the vocals in the soundtrack are going to be this smart, therefore we're in for a big one from Zimmer. Here are the highlights as one mp3:

Those who are interesteed in this score should visit the da vinci code site: http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/thedavincicode/

There are some really good excerpts from the score in the background and if you give some time and then click on the da vinci gallery you have some more music. Some very good vocal parts of the score could easily be heard in the trailer.

To finish up the tracklist given in the site contains another track: 14. Kyrie For The Magdalene


I still have my doubts about some names altough they are in Latin, I could still follow them and they don't seem to follow the book. I hope that the film is truthfull to the book... This might be one of the best scores Zimmer might have produced considering the parts I have listened from the site

Here is an audio excerpt from the film that could possibly be the music from the film:

As for the dialogues? I personally don't think so.

Oh and by the way, does anyone know if they're having dialogues in any of the tracks of this album? I really hope not.

Any idea as to when he will release some samples? Because if I remember right, Harry Gregson-Williams did that with his Narnia score before the soundtrack even came out.

Because August 5 is a bit far off.... usually soundtracks are released before the movie. (In my experiance, that is).

Jesse

ok, guys

I'd like you to explain how this score can be rated 85% ? It's not released yet !!! ---)

Please, try to give an evaluation just when you listened to the score, it would be better for the credibility from this rating place !! :-)

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-11 00:00:00
I do hope that they won't include any dialogues into this one like they did for Hannibal. No matter how well it's performed, the dialogues never really work for me and I find them irritating.
