Bayhem - Balfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers though.which films has this small army of ghostwriters ???!!!!!!You say Balfe worked on the last Transformers(2017). Okay. He may have been called by the Paramount. However, his involvement with the franchise in 2005 and in the following years happened because of the RCP and Zimmer's direct involvement in the project. There in 2005, 2007, 2011, 2014 he was a guest of RCP/MV and no received no call for help of the Paramount. There is no other way.he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter .<br>.....................................<br><br><br>I've asked him a lot of stuff. We're Facebook friends. And yes, I know he worked on the first one. I clearly said it a couple of times in my replies here. He worked on the first one and the second one as well. But if you try to imply that Balfe deserves the credit for these scores, you are way, way off the mark. And it's very disrespectful to Jablonsky. Very.<br><br>Now, clearly you like Balfe a lot. Fine. But please don't undermine a far more experienced and successful composer like Jablonsky, just because Balfe is the "hot MV/RC composer" at the moment. We, the Jablonsky fans, certainly didn't act that way in 2007 when Jablonsky's name was everywhere and people were going crazy for the Transformers score. No one denies that Balfe worked hard on the Transformers films. But he's not the "main guy". Just like a lot of MV/RC composers have worked on HIS scores and they're not the main composers. You think Balfe scores all of his movies alone? Nope. Like any other successful and busy composer out there, he's supported by a small army of ghostwriters.Studio = Paramount and he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter . I did !!!!!!Balfe never worked for Jablonsky =========================================<br><br>By "worked for Jablonsky" I meant he worked ON Jablonsky scores. And as James said, it's all MV/RC anyway. They all know each other and help each other. The first Transformers movie started post-production at the end of 2006. Back then no one knew who Balfe was (aside from the biggest MV/RC fans). His big break arguably came in 2009-2010. Years after the first Transformers movie. So no matter how we spin it, he still came after Jablonsky. Jablonsky is his senior and obviously has much more experience. And we have to respect that. <br><br>That was my point.
Should have gotten one for Interstellar, not this."Strength And Honor" is a forerunner to the main theme of King Arthur and also the theme for Transformers!<br><br>I was listening to the soundtrack and unwittingly the music sent me to these two other movies. :Dhe says he was brought in by the studio.<br><br>-----------------------------------------------<br><br>Studio = RCP = Hans Zimmer credit as producer of the score.<br>In end of day is the same thing.Maybe a honorary in the future.Bayhem - your wrong on a couple of points . Balfe never worked for Jablonsky .In a recent podcast he was asked about Transformers and he says he was brought in by the studio.seems the same with the lastest Film also.its pretty obvious the temp for the end is 13 Hours also.
A "spanish" score. This is great!An Oscar (or at lease a nomination) for Dunkirk or Blade Runner ; it would be great from the academy to reward this kind of score. In the last decade, only Gravity had also this kind of """""sound desing""""""" score.I think you're forgetting that Balfe also ghostwrote The Lord of the Rings<br>==================================<br><br>Hahaha, but of course! Howard Shore and John Williams are actually Balfe alter-egos. He's actually 155 years old and he's solely responsible for all of these iconic scores. Hell, I heard he did some additional work on Psycho as well. And Gone with the Wind. lol!<br><br><br>Now, let me say something else in regards to the claim that Balfe did this score. All kidding aside, it would've (I guess...) made sense to make such a claim if this score was done by someone UNtested. But this is Jablonsky we're talking! He's one of Balfe's mentors. Look back and you'll see that Balfe started working not only on Zimmer scores, but on Jablonsky scores as well.<br><br>So yes, Balfe is good and all, but let's not act as if he's "the greatest in the world". And let's respect and NOT undermine the more senior MV/RC composers who gave the guy a shot. Thank you.If he does I hope it's not for Dunkirk.Lynk, you should be able to just type the individual times into a column or row in Excel, select them all and the sum will be given at the bottom. Alternatively I use this sometimes: calculator. net/time-calculator<br><br>Also...HOOOOOOOOOOOLY shit that last track. My entire mouth just filled with saliva. :O
@Kusi<br><br>Each time Film Music Reporter or similar websites reveal full album details I see individual track lengths but usually total running time is not provided. I am often curious to find out what the total running time is. It is fairly straightforward to do the math myself, of course, but it takes time. What I am looking for is some web service, Excel template/formula or whatever quick and easy-to-use tool one can suggest that allows me to type in individual track-lengths and get the total running times as the output.Based on what you'd like to calculate it? MP3, CD....?jaa. but i think he will never get his second oscar...:-(Yes!

Teo - Black Hawk Down was a Bruckheimer production, tough it was Zimmer idea of chosing such a musical aproach.

Teo reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-21 00:00:00
Anthony - Elfman and Silvestri would definitely bring some charm back...but I would say the best person would be Alf Clausen. Elfman wrote only the main theme, but Alf has been part of the simpsons the whole decade. He is as close to them almost like a real family. However I'm not sure if the usual TV style of approach in terms of the humour would be good for something like a movie that's a one-time-off thing as opposed to serials where one can always look forward to the next one.

Let's just see what Zimmer does with this one. By the way he's also done many un-Bruckheimer scores like The Ring, As Good As It Gets, Driving Miss Daisy, Black Hawk Down, Beyond Rangoon. and a number of early art films.

Unlike many who only bother to impune Zimmer with his cliched style without even having the interest in checking out his whole repertoire, I hope you do take an interest in Hans' many different scores instead of just throwing bar darts assumptively.

Anthony reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-20 00:00:00
Danny Elfman or Alan Silvestri would have been my first choice; their often lighthearted yet triumphant styles would suit this movie more than...say...a dozen trumpets blasting with marcato strings chopping their way through the background. But maybe Zimmer will "pull a Homer" with this one. Just don't go stealing from Holst again.

Anthony reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-20 00:00:00
(Just fyi, the comment by "Anthony" below is someone else, this is Antzstuff Anthony)

Anyway, all I know is that I am buying this just for that case!

This I'm looking forward to! The man made the soundtrack to "the ring", "Gladiator", "Crimson Tide" amongst others, and over to "the simpsons"? :D Hans is conquering the world!

Im looking forward to hear his interpretation of the main theme! ;)

good luck hans (not like you're gonna need it)

Hans said maybez he was not the good person to do this film. But he is too modest! It will boost his mind for originality. And we will not be disappointed for sure!!
