@superultramegaa and others<br><br>Honestly, if you take an objective look back, you can still see RC written all over Powell...And thats all well and good, because I like Powell. Well, maybe not since Hancock, but I like his style.<br><br>That being said, This will be the official first Star Wars outing with an RC score. Sure, Williams phoned in a theme...But going forward I expect RC influence to be the norm.<br><br>And, as for Giacchino...Jesus Christ. For someone who practically MADE his career apeing Williams (Jurassic Park and Medal of Honor video games spring to mind), his Rogue One was  dreadful...I cant disagree with you. <br><br><br>Powell is heavily influenced by Zimmer. The only thing that differs him from the others is that he really has a style of his own that matches the traces of the career he shared with Zimmer. If you listen to any of your action scores, you will notice that they are clearly RCP scores. Even the orchestral, especially "Pan" have some passages that are very reminiscent of Pirates, Prince of Egypt and Gladiator.Really awesome "Is She With You?" cover by Nir Shor!Hey Hybrid Soldier, is Harry returning for the Sequel??Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.
I wasn't saying Powell sounds like Williams. I'm saying he's closer in sound to Williams than he is to Zimmer for his animated movies.While John Powell is usually far more melodic and classical than your usual RCP composer, I don't see the Williams similarity. His music doesn't really sounds like Williams' scores. But I think he is perfect for Star Wars. I am much more excited about this than Giacchino's Rogue One.Yeah, this is the best RCP action score of the year so far. Much better than Balfe's efforts and Junkie's.@superultramega It’s funny you should say that about Rogue One because, even though I do like the themes, I will agree that it definitely is weaker than any Star Wars score and seems to lack the life Giacchino normally puts into his music.<br><br>Even weirder, his music for Jupiter Ascending (another big space opera) is far more aggressive and developed, and probably one of his best. It makes me wonder if the Star Wars team wanted the safe route....Ok, not restraint on drums, but I still don't really see how exactly his music for animated films comes even close to being an RC product. When I think of RC I think of the music for the Pirates movies, the early Bay and Bruckheimer films, etc. The work on Shrek, Antz, Ice Age, and How to Train Your Dragon is much closer to a traditional Williams score than any RC product. <br><br>Plus he's working on Star Wars so he's obviously going to try his damnedest to stick to that kind of music, and to avoid the Zimmer style. I just don't understand why you think Powell, of all people is going to be the one to dilute the Star Wars sound. <br><br>Hell, I think Giacchino's score for Rogue One was pretty much nothing more than an unmemorable, and bland version of Star Wars with very little going on besides broken down notes of the Star Wars theme playing and generic Williams copy. Just like Jurassic World. I don't know how Giacchino makes Williams' style bland but he finds a way. At least with Powell we'll get more style and memorability on top of a Williams imitation.
Restraint on drums? <br><br>Have you listened to Green Zone? The Bourne movies? Hancock?<br><br>Cmon...Yeah he's not Zimmer, but this isn't a Williams product we are talking about. It's an RC product. This is what I am talking about.People like Harry Gregson, Jablonsky and Zanelli, despite their melodic tendinsies, would be people chosen for going the Zimmer route. I think Jablonsky's is the closest to Star Wars but even then there's a ton of power themes, and Zimmer hallmarks that keep him away from this sort of style. <br><br>Powell is the last person I would associate with Zimmer. His techniques are very much in vain with the Williams-like composers, like Alexandre Desplat and Michael Giacchino. The complex underscore, the rapid notes, the restraint on drums, instrument variety, the jazz techniques, etc. He's the perfect RCP composer for the job.Of all RCP members, I think he is the one closest to Williams and Star Wars sound, so I think this score will be pure orchestral fun, like most of his scores usually are.<br><br>I cannot wait to listen to it!Well, I guess that is a matter of tastes and opinion, because for me scores like The Incredibles or Up, for saying some examples, are classics inside the animation field.<br><br>But is fine. We have our own preferences and that's okay.Me too! Very fun and « guilty pleasure » score<br>After listening to this one and Todo Mal, I think Andrew is a really versatile composer, both scores are really entertaining and yet have nothing to do with each other
I like this score, altough i think it will fly (get it) under the radar..<br>Hope Andrew continues making scores like thisIMO, though Powell was Hans'protegee 20 years ago, he always had his very own style. And this style evolved so much through these decades you can't really connect any more his mannerisms to those of people at RCP!You can't call Powell "the Zimmer route". He's written some of the densest, flashiest orchestral film music of the last 10+ years!And how is that a bad thing? :-p<br>John Powell is an excellent choice to have both a big sounding and fun RCP score, and an orchestral one which would fit with the previously established style.Cant say Im 100% invested.....<br><br>This will be the first Star Wars score to go the Zimmer route...

Norduk Jaffa is right. I saw one of the first versions, very raw version, and had transformers OST.


Lejti2014-07-23 13:49:02
You known when a movie has no music, then they using temp music. The temp music is very similar to that what they want to the movie from the composer.


Macejko2014-07-23 18:01:56
And it is a practice that should be stopped, in my opinion. It kills the composer's creativity.


Brent2014-07-23 20:45:52
I get using temp music for editing purposes. That makes sense to me. After the scene has been edited, and is then handed to the composer, the temp needs to be eradicated. Though, it gets that much more difficult if the composer is working closely with the editor.


Lambegue2014-07-23 20:47:01
I agree with this : even if the composer isn't influenced by the temp music, the director can get too attached to it, and be unable to accept anything that does not sound like it. I remember that this problem was evocated in an interview, but I don't remember by which composer...Maybe Desplat.

At least now it's better than that period in the mid to late 90's when Varèse would release score albums with only about 20 - 30 minutes of material...

Adrian reply Replies: 22 || 2009-03-25 00:00:00
Aahh, I'm not the only one who hates Verèse artwork!

And as for length, nuh-uh, at least, i dont think 43 mins of Frost/Nixon is a lot! Nor Lions for Lambs has a long score... Nor the Bourne Identity!

Theres a section in the newest trailer for this film, that has the (batman/transformers) two note motif. Does anyone know if this was original trailer music written by HGW or someone else or maybe... (hopefully) music from the film?

Levente reply Replies: 22 || 2009-04-14 00:00:00
I know that the latest trailer in the beginning has music from John Murphy's Sunshine.

I don't see where all the bad reviews are coming from already. The samples sound just like what I expected: well written and enjoyable generic action music. What were you expecting? HGW hasn't done anything original since Powell, but he does what he does well.

I hope too. I very wait for this score since Metal Gear Solid 4 was release, its awesome music!
