i believe that glimpses of the original would have solved the problem ;)Not actually though...probably a bit more Jackman than there actually is, eh? ;)@James<br><br>I have heard the original Vangelis theme but I was referring to a new theme for this new movie.Okay. I'm on the Lorne Balfe bandwagon now. I don't care if this movie is trash, this is a great listening experience, which is sometimes difficult to find in a score these days.Composer credits !
@spectre<br><br>She has a theme! Search for "Rachael's Song"!I agree. It is the most beautiful theme of the previous film and one of the biggest in Vangelis' career.I feel like there should have been a proper theme for Rachael. She was a really important character in both movies and it would have been nice to hear a sad melancholic melody for in her in some kind of Flashback or dream sequence for Deckard.$$$$$$ the soundtrack is FANTASTICSame here, I want to re-live the whole film through score and there is so much more we havent heard yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Just listen to all of it !!!! It’s a great classic soundtrack with cool electronics and great tunes- balfe is the topListen all the score and make the list yourself with the best moments for you, guy! Lolcan anybody recommend the absolute best themes on this score to me please!No he is not. It's just the musical palette created for all the futuristic scifi films that are inspired by what Vangelis did in 1982.Balfe is doing a Reddit interview in 2 hours time . Hopefully we can get to the bottom of Why he replaced Pinar and Clint Mansell on Ghost in The Shell
I totally agree with you. I was let down when I first heard the album. It's great but it's a selection of the score. I feel like they could've done a better job crafting the album. <br>Hell, something experimental like releasing the music as it is as a long (digital) track would've been interesting. <br><br>I think what made it difficult for them is how the tempo changes all the time, which might have resulted in an unpleasant listening experience (I think that might have been their point of view). For example, in the movie, the tempo of the cue "Home" changes a lot and some layers are taken out while the album version has a constant tempo.<br><br>Unfortunately, the number of people who noticed how unsatisfying this release is, is quite small, so there won't be anything official. Once again, we have to wait for leaks or bootlegs.also seems very like ghost in the shell. Did Balfe also help out on this score ?I can hear it<br>'Her Eyes were Green' gave me a heavy Arrival-vibe for example<br>Am I the Only one that feels Johánn Johánnsson touch everywere along this score?<br>Truly is the Vangelis reminiscense in each song, but the style is more near to Johánnsson than Wallfisch and of course Zimmer.<br>Could be Denis Villeneuve's suggestion, or maybe Benjamin has study Villeneuve last works, but is unquestionable that 2049 score sounds very Johánnsson.<br><br>Many people these days talking bad about 2049 score (No melodies, No Vangelis, All ambiance...), but the reality is that this work has perfect match with the rest of the film.<br><br>2049 is different to the original Blade Runner. Yes it has the same world and feeling, but is another director's vision, and the music follows (perfectly) the same way.OK, there seems to be a regular edition at amazon and other retailers with the same content (2 CD) for a cheaper price than the limited one. It's nonsense. Will the record label pay me back a couple of bucks? I don't think it is ethical business at all.

Congratulations Powell, you have composed a great score for an excelent movie.

I agree with you Martin. This film doesn't want, or need a big brassy heroic score. It needs and underscore and that's what it got. This is a film where the music isn't trying to draw attention to itself.

I'd just like to congratulate Powell on pulling off such a difficult project. It's always a challenge to write a convincing underscore, but on this one, being in a touchy genre must have been harder than we expect.

I saw the film recently in Sydney and found the score to be a sensitive accompaniment to the film. The references to - unwittingly or not - New York minimalism (especially Steve Reich) are very canny and appropriate. A film like this doesn't need a psychologically manipulative or lavish score. Underscoring is what's required and congratulations on delivering just that with no loss of sophistication.

UNITED 93 - PRESS RELEASE

(Los Angeles, CA) John Powell scores the much-anticipated United 93 for Universal Pictures and writer-director Paul Greengrass. The film is a real time account of the heroism in United Flight 93, the fourth plane to be hijacked the morning of September the 11th, 2001. The film premiered at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival, screened at Canned and opened April 28. United 93 marks the second collaboration between Powell and Greengrass; the two had collaborated previously on The Bourne Supremacy and will rejoin in The Bourne Ultimatum. For United 93, Powell created an ambient score which he recorded in London with a live orchestra. Varese Sarabande will release the score CD June 6.

As the Powell-scored Ice Age: The Meltdown continues its march to the $200 million mark at the box office, audiences have turned out for another summer box office monster Powell has scored, X-Men: The Last Stand, which has broken records to gross over $175 million in just two weeks.

Powell's long and storied career in music began in Britain where he joined performance art group Media Arts while attending Trinity College of Music. While composing music for television and commercials for Air-Edel Music, he worked alongside composers Hans Zimmer and Patrick Doyle and made his first foray into feature films. After Powell co¬founded the commercial music house Independently Thinking Music (ITM) with longtime collaborator Gavin Greenaway, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue feature film composing.. He immediately scored several projects for DreamWorks Television, but it was his stirring score for John Woo's blockbuster Face/Off that put him in Hollywood's short list. He has since scored a wide variety of films and is well known for his scores to actioners Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Italian Job, The Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremacy as well as jazzy scores for Be Cool and Alfie.

In addition to Jason Bourne's next adventure, Powell's upcoming slate includes the animated musical Happy Feet, and the film adaptation of the graphic novel The Watchmen.

This Sounds Great !!!!. When does it come to Europe ( Holland ) I Hope it comes very fast.

I Think the score sounds better if you have the images from the film in your head...........

I don't think it comes close to an orchestra - I've only listened to it a couple of times because it's so boring and all I remember is some violins and the occasional percussion.

This time Mr. Powell makes me wanna sleep at all...

There is no orchestra in this project , right ?

Ant reply Replies: 0 || 2006-06-06 00:00:00
Rather bland - it just sounded like the Bourne scores without any action.

my thoughts exactly .. the end and dedication are decent but the rest..
and during this time no release for the dynamic klaus badelt score for "Ultraviolet".. ts ts ts

very, very, very atmospheric score.
Just percusion and ambience music.

Some string and Powell's son vocals.

"the End" is a moving track.But the rest is like nothing.I can't understand why powell has wanted release this score.

Though it seems to be way too short, I'm glad to see this coming out at last.

Indeed, "Thanks Varese!"
