What site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.
John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !
Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)
Hubris: Choral Works by John Powell is now available to stream worldwide on all digital platforms! &#128526;<br><br>Also available to download in 192k/24bit high-resolution from johnpowellmusic .com<br>CDs on https ://bit.ly/2lcQ5Ig :) and coming soon to Amazon and other retailers!<br><br>Thank you, everyone, who was a part of this record!<br>Enjoy &#127926;&#127930;Mega cool :) Wann wird dieser Remix released? :)This would be really nice that as the release is only available for download, we had the choice to download it in a better quality than the CD itself. We have no material piece in the  hands, at least we would like to have such a contentment. I do have no action in Qobuz, but that should be a mandatory place for a download only music, for music lovers who like pure instrumental music. ;)<br>I'll be waiting for it !This album is absolutley wonderful!. I loved every second of it. I adore choirs in film music and an album like this is a very welcome treat!<br><br>Great job, Mr. Powell<br>10/10Absolutely delightful score. Loved it.

Does it contain the "Superman" cue?

This is not complete. A couple of cues are missing. Also CD 1, Track 1 is in mono for some reason!

What the hell is up with this cover? "The HAUNTING Complete Recordings", "powerful music by John Powell"

GRRR reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-18 00:00:00
it's because the "thing" that leaked is still incomplete and is missing some great material

OMG reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-18 00:00:00
Meh, I've been trying to get this for months, and now it's finally leaked there is hardly any decent music that wasn't on the official release.

David reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-13 00:00:00
The alternative versions of Death And Transfiguration are amazing. Too bad still there's some great musi which didn't make it to the expanded score, like the Superman-esque ostinato in the bank robbery scene.

Well, as it is an unreleased version... there's no plan to release it...

JMG reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-27 00:00:00
So, when is this edition being released?

Bloo' reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-25 00:00:00
There is always a lot of ways to make a cover.. as a film, as a text.. change the director, the art designer, and this will be really different; it's a point of view. The essentials is to be in peace with ourselves ;).
But, generally, i prefer to make a cover for a movie, a music, an actor(actress) i like.. after that, the music take a better dimension. So i make few covers, but not really do again "official" covers. Not my job, no time to loose too, it's the music i listen, not the design lol. It's a choice too, because, as you said, some officials are "awful".
I can't add "futurist" fonts in the style of "Hancock", i don't want lol. Maybe cause i like the contrast, even myself ;).

Have a good day(night?)!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-24 00:00:00
Well, it seems that you make the covers for your own use too, then you must make covers where you are completely happy about yourself! Because when you listen to a CD and then you have to think ''this cover sucks'' then the cd sounds less cool, at least that is what happens to me!

I could've guessed that you didn't know Oorlogswinter, Dutch films never go far over the border.
So it's no German title, hehe. German is a bit different, the title would be Kriegwinter then.
But it was meant a bit describing how err... stupid it is :P
Well, I misexplained it actually, I would be happy when the other fonts are in the style of Hancock-font, a futuristic one :P

Let's ask Hybrid to upload your final cover, I'm real curious how your re-making worked out!
And no problem, I'm always curious what the choices are from other cover designers!

Bloo' reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-24 00:00:00
Thanks a lot for your answer! I will try to explain my choices (try because my english.. well ;)).
My covers were serious in a first time (it's powerful, for me) and funny in a second time. Sure, i don't put that (Haunting, powerful..) if the covers did for a commercial rush ;). As this Oorlogswinter. A cover i never saw until then (and i can't read german too lol). So no influence. Anyway, the purpose wasn't to be revolutionary ;)

For "the haunting complete recording", there is a little mistake, "Recordings" need to be in the same way as the others words like "complete". I made another cover, but Hybrid didn't change the first one ;).
For the rest, "powerful music by john powell", i changed too (just a little), but not really as you could hope ;).
For "Hancock", i put the official font, title. So no change from me. Not my fonts. I like it like that. I changed only shadow, etc.. and for finish, i prefer that cover to all the others i saw, but it's personal, you know ;).

You're right, it's good to see/make a simple clean cover, but it's my major problem, i can't do that most of the time. I need to grind up all the stuff in my head lol. It's often confused but i treat myself lol.

To finish, thanks again for your time ;).

Yeah, I didn't wanna be the first to say...but I guess I'll follow up on the last post. The front cover really sucks! This is not "The Haunting Complete Recordings!" It wasn't even composed by the same guy, lol! I don't know how this'll be though...the original release was plenty for me. Prolly still check it out.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
The front cover maker doesn't know anything about fonts too!
And about the haunting-thing, like the Dutch did the same for the score of Oorlogswinter ''door de wereldberoemde componist Pino Donaggio'', ''by the world famous composer Pino Donaggio.''
That's for losers :P

Bloo' reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
Maybe you could explain Adrian... what's the problem with my fonts ?

No need to fight !


People just didn't get the cover is quite ironic as we don't have this bootleg... xD

Bloo' reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
I'm not fighting at all lol. I'm just want to know, that's interesting to progress if i'm wrong ;)
and i assume, it's powerful ;)

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
so.... why does it say "The Haunting Complete Records" on the top??

Darkashram reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
perhraps because before someone get that (and us all) , armageddon will come or I will have a gray beard , so this complete is just a shadow , a ghost of promise which eventually will never comes:)

Why not ? it's just correponded to my sentiment in that moment. Dark' seems to have a good answer, maybe he's not with me, but anyway, why i cound't ?
But i don't why i answer to an anonymous person... that's haunting!!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
@ Bloo'

Well, I didn't know the cover was meant ironic, I thought it was a serious one.
If the cover was serious, your read what I said about Oorlogswinter... this is something like that with that powerful etc :P since the music of that ilm sucked, I don't take those things on a cover serious anymore.

About your fonts, you use italic and normal font and (small) capitals in a strange way. There should be some system.
Also, Hancock is in a futuristic font, I don't find a serif font fitting. I would go for a sans serif font or a futuristic font. And I would use all italic, or none italic or music by italic and john powell normal.
I like a simple clean cover. And I dont like the photo either... I would go for something more subtle.
You used a very good photo for Children of Glory btw. But this is my opinion, nothing personal.
Oh, I make covers myself too, simple ones, but I'm not unexperienced, so you're not getting an opinion from someone who never made a cover ;-)

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
Oh, I forgot! I am quite picky when it comes to covers. I re-made one for Pearl Harbor because I hated the photographs. Same for King Arthur... So I don't like some professional either.
