I 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.Richter did his recording in january and june 2019. The Director himself is a fan of Richter, so the deadline and director are not the reason.<br>It seemed that producers were not satisfied with Richter's music and they wanted something new, that's why they got Lorne. It turned out Lorne brought a very limited new...
@Cercei<br>Hybrid can definitely answer that best. Richter’s score is used (alongside Balfe’s material) as well as some source pieces. If I remember correctly it’s a mish-mash of the two.I do know that piece, it’s very pretty. I’ll check out his other works, thanks for the recommendation. In terms of minimalism I really am into Brian Eno at the moment. His “Music For Airports” and “The Lovely Bones” are excellent if you like more introspective music.btw, you're saying Lorne recomposed and reworked the entire score. as i haven't seen the movie yet, did the producers end up with not using richters score for it at all and just used the score from Lorne?thanks for your information. but i actually don't understand why they have done that. i've heard now Lornes cues and Richters cues. all those cues from Lorne, they sound very similiar to that what Richter composed, but somehow with less melodies. And you really have to work hard to not use fewer melodies then Richter, as he's a minimalist at its best ^^ with that being said, i can't hear any groundbreaking differences from Lornes part, so what was their idea on hiring it and getting the same style of music, but in a more "light" version? :/i really admire Max Richters work, he isn't that new in this scene. his style is that repeating minimalism. maybe you've heard once the cue "on the nature of daylight" which was used a lot by many other movies. his last score which knocked me out was "Hostiles". such an emotional and intense score, you need to hear that, and probably see the movie as well (with Christian Bale). <br><br>
Really surprised at this album, I’ve never really heard anything from Max Richter but I really like what he ended up writing for this score. It surprisingly flows well for a stand alone listen. It’s funny that the producers wanted a different approach, I think Richter nailed it.<br><br>Balfe’s contribution is excellent as well, I particularly like that repeating chord progression (which is starting to become one of his trademarks considering how many times he has used it). It’s disappointing that they didn’t include more of his contribution though, since he apparently rewrote the entire score.Lorne said in his Twitter, the first album for His Dark Materials come 3rd November, no date, for the moment, for the second album.Was the producersi haven't understood the fact, that Lorne was involved in this. Can someone explain it for me? Was the director not satisfied with Richters music? Was the deadline too near? Or what was the reason why they have brought Lorne to this project?"The Wanderer", "Event Horizon", "You Have To Let Me Go" and "Tuesday (Voiceless)" = WOW WOW WOW!!!
Zanelli is no James Newton Howard, but he did a fantastic job with writing a large scale fantasy score. I’ll even say that, while I think the first Maleficent is stronger overall, I personally like the action writing better here. Also 2 little things I’ve noticed;<br><br>1. The new theme here sounds fairly similar to the Father/Son tune from KFP3<br>2. 2:20-3:30 sounds like it may have been temped from the finale of Fantastic Beasts. (Or maybe I’m just crazy lol)Great work of Zanelli, if is not as good like JNH's Maleficent, is a tremendous work, with a terrific writing and orchestrations, even the most tender parts are terrific.It’s definitely Balfe. I’ve seen the film for the second time two weeks ago so my memory is kind of hazy but luckily I decided to record the end credits for reference and I think it plays in Balfe’s section / variation of one of his themes played on a solo string instrument. <br><br>I think we got most of Richter cues as it was mainly his release. I feel that Lorne has moved on from this project - he didn’t even mention the release so an extended release of his material seems unlikely to happen :( <br><br>For those interested the credits suite plays as follows: <br><br><br>“A Trip To The Moon” (synth part)<br>“I Put All That Away”<br>Variation on the theme in “Underground Lake” at 0:14<br>Variation on the theme in “Trip To Neptune” 0-1:00<br>“To The Stars”Season 2 premieres in 2 weeks, if he was scoring he would be working on it at the moment. But yes no confirmation regarding his return or a new composer. No news regarding new composer might be a hint whether Djawadi is returning or not.I only listened to the first couple of cues so it is too early to form an opinion comparing it to JNH but I disagree the first half drags. Maybe because I love tender themes.

Yes, way to go, Hans! It's great that he gets the recognition he deserves. It's about time to have him nominated again since Gladiator.

Yes Giacchino has made a wonderful score but I think you are in mistake...Sherlock Holmes has a great ideas that have never been used before!

I hate to admit that I am only recently (being in the last two years) a fan of Hans Zimmer, but only because I didn't really learn to appreciate the music in films until then. Now, however, I love Hans Zimmer more than anything and his music brings me to heights in which I cannot even describe. This soundtrack is no acception...it is simply incredible. I love the new techniques he uses with not having necessarily the "big band" sound, like in the Pirates movies, but with single instrumentational sounds. It just blows me away. He is the definition of a musical genius.

Adrian,

Thanks for the reply. If that is the case, that is unfortunate because that means I'll probably never get a copy of the track. :-/ If anyone else has any thoughts on the issue, I'd love to hear them.

As for Dredger, I think he actually *is* French, and Sherlock knew that from the first word that Dredger speaks (English, but with a French accent) upon his arrival in the midget's house. The joke then, is that the 'muscle' of the bad guys is actually quite cultural and respectful of honor. I think this is the case given his look of respect when he sees that Sherlock can fight, as well as their continued banter in French. Plus, think about it - why would a London street level thug speak French if he was English? ;)

@ Daniel
If I'm correct the dude is not French, he just happens to speak French... How would Sherlock even know he is French? I think that's joke! Or am I wrong?

As for the music... When I heard it, I assumed it was Hans... The score in the film is million times longer than on this CD, so the chance is big it's a Zimmer-piece that wasn't put on the disc.

Daniel reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-27 00:00:00
I'm a bit confused, and would really appreciate any help anyone could give. In the movie, during the 1st fight scene with Dredger (the big Frenchman), an Irish-sounding piece of music plays. It has no lyrics, and is not credited separately in the credits at the end of the movie. Is this a piece that HZ wrote that he just didn't put on the soundtrack? I really enjoyed it, as short as it was, and if anyone recognized what it is I would really appreciate your help.

~Daniel~

Plz note: I'm *not* talking about Rocky Road to Dublin.

About Sherlock Holmes 5.1

File this one under "Why Even Bother?!" As per the instructions included in the CD;

Instructions For Downloading and Playing 5.1 Surround Files

1. Go to exclusive website using enhanced CD and click on button to download 5.1 Surround Sound Files
2. Unzip the file "SherlockSurround.zip"
3. Import WAV files and burn audio CD using any burning software (iTunes, Nero, Toast, etc.)
4. Play disc in any home theater system that supports 5.1 Dolby Pro Logic ll audio

Don't waste your time. The actual CD sounds virtually indistinguishable from the "PLll surround encoded" burned disc. Both played via HDMI (PCM stream) to receiver with PLll decoding. Comparing the wav file images from both enhanced CD and dowloaded files (via Wavasaur) reveal no difference - they are both stereo 16/44 files. The music itself while I'm sure complimentary to the viewing of the film, does not really stand up well on its own (IMO).

If you want to enjoy multichannel download files you are much better off buying the grammy nominated David Huber's "Colab" disc from CD Baby (there is also a DTS CD available). The 5.1 MP3 files are actually multichannel and decode VERY discretely.

You would think that with the resources available to Warner Bros and multi Acadamy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer, they could come up with something more sophisticated than this fairy dust - especially when compared to the efforts of someone like Mr. Huber who is self released and has what appears to be very limited resources.

Totally understand you there, Matthew. Sometimes there'll be a lot of music in an actual movie that isn't in the released soundtrack, which is also the case with all three of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, sadly.

no, I'm yust talking about the release cd. rotf is too short. it's almost like a yoke. but avatar has 14 tracks too yust like rotf and it's so long. so who did this with the trans 2 score cd? Length : 43'56???? ohhhh yust great!! and the cd is only about optimus. yeah I know the movie is about optimus...

Mich reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-17 00:00:00
Was someone saying Hans Zimmer had something to do with the Avatar soundtrack? I thought James Horner composed that?
I can't see Mr. Zimmer doing a movie like Avatar. Dunno why, but it just doesn't seem his thing.

And Matthew, I'm not sure what sound exactly you're referring to, but I can tell you different instruments make all kinds of weird sounds when played different ways, so there's really no unique sound that "belongs" to any one movie. More specifically, every composer has unique styles and quirky techniques, so maybe you're hearing some similarities between the two tracks, which is completely possible.
