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.

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...

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!!

@ 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.
