It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinionSo it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.
Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.I think Lorne teased this some time ago by sending a picture of researching Russian music on insta (maybe)Hello, <br><br>I'm looking for the translation of the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi in English of French.<br><br>Could anyone help me ? <br><br>Thank you !

When I watched the movie last week, i did not know, that the music was written by Hans Zimmer. The end of the movie was brilliant both the picture and the music, until that moment, i did not observe what i heard, probably, because the music was perfect to the movie, did not distract my attention from it.

So thanks for the experience. :)

"Warner Bros. Records will make available two previously unreleased bonus tracks to fans who sign up via email at the soundtrack’s website www.inceptionscore.com The two bonus tracks, “Projections” and “Don’t Think About Elephants,” will go live at noon PT on Thursday, August 12th."

Yes!!! Huge thanks to Hans and Hybrid Soldier, here's to hoping both tracks are long and amazing!

The only bad part is that 12:00pm PST is 3:00 EST. :(

@TomPoland it's a disorder. Babypunchitis.

On another note has anyone heard any news on the next batman ost? Here's hoping Zimmer and Howard tear it up again.

@JusticCat i'm fairly certain Zimmer is in, but I'm not so sure about Howard. I'm super excited for it, The Dark Knight's soundtrack was phenominal. Hopefully Howard returns (it wouldn't be the same without him) and we get a 2CD set like last time. Can't wait.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-10 00:00:00
no doubt we will because im sure its gonna be a big hit like dark knight was. i just hope they will release some bonus music from batman begins in the future too

tomPoland reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-10 00:00:00
But the 2 CD should be normal edition, not some 'take more money from fans' edition after 4 months. And i can't imagine Batman without Howard's touch and his beautiful themes.

Hi! First, the soundtrack of Inception is, again, another of the masterpieces of Hans...
Second, I'm desperately looking for the song of the second trailer of Inception, Hans Zimmer, ### EDITED ###

tomPoland reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-08 00:00:00
But Zimmer could say to Nolan: I think your idea isn't very good, let's try something traditional. Or illustrate one scene actually looking at her, not just knowing what it looks like. Just to show he's idea. I think Zimmer has something to say when it comes to composing.

I've watched film once, and to be honest I payed more attention to story than to music and other 'technicalities' so maybe my judgment is not completely fair.

@TomPoland

I think you fail to read what you type, or fail to type what you mean. You said "I think Zimmer should reconsider his approach. Stop this 'standalone' compositions and visit filmset and editor room more often" - implying it was Zimmer's choice to be hands off for Inception. HZGui stated it wasn't Zimmer's choice, you then acknowledged you knew it wasn't Zimmer's choice, and still you stood by your original criticism, which has nothing to do with Zimmer - it has to do with Nolan.

Your comments and viewpoints lose any positive addition to our conversations on here, which honestly is my only gripe with you. I love having another opinion on a subject - But it better be consistent, thought out, and informed.

Your views are welcome - just be a little more consistent, and less negative for the sake of being negative.

@HZgui
I know all of this. I know what Nolan asked. But I prefer when composer, director and editor meet more often. Not mickey-mousing but I wish that music was connected with picture more. As standalone CD - 4,5/5, in movie - 3/5.

Sometimes this is a good way of working (magnificent Thin Red Line - music was composed before shooting the movie), but in my opinion this time that approach was wrong.

HZgui reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-05 00:00:00
TomPoland- Have you ever read an interview? Chris Nolan asked Zimmer to write a score without knowing anything about the movie but that it's a movie about dream and mind heist, and without watching anything... So Do not tell Zimme how he must work :).
Look Zimmer works with script generally, he tries to be on the set, to get a lot of info about the movie before starting to write anything about it. This time Nolan push him a little further...

JustinCat reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-05 00:00:00
A band I play with (ambient rock) are looking into playing songs from inception with a little more of a rock vibe (still will have strings and horns and some synth) - as soon I have some more concrete details Ill post them here. We are thinking of playing at a con next year.

tomPoland reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-05 00:00:00
When listening - nice very climatic score. But while watching (BTW superb film) it didn't fit very well (IMO of course). Time and Mombasa are fitted best, but the rest... I think Zimmer should reconsider his approach. Stop this 'standalone' compositions and visit filmset and editor room more often. What worked with batman, not necessarily work with non-action movie.

On Hans his facebook page: Hans Zimmer wants to thank everyone for helping us get over the 200,000 fans milestone! Please keep spreading the word to everyone you know - we have some great surprises in store!

Let's hope they are talking about the bonus tracks.

I already want to thank Hybrid Soldier in advance :)

Well, I just love the Inceptions score. "Time" fits the end of the movie so perfect. It's a very good score because it works without the movie (but the movie won't work without this score).

And James Newton Howard is more skilled than Hans. His Shyamalan scores destroys every score that Hans did since 2000.

OK, I've said it, now bring wood and oil and finish it.
