I guess James Newton Howard doesn't count as a Remote Control composer anymore (and yet John Powell does? I don't get it), but anyway, he's scoring Disney Animation Studios' Raya and the Last Dragon. After his epic trilogy of Dinosaur, Atlantis, and Treasure Planet, I welcome his return to the studio!Some original cue titles with slates from a music mixing CD-R:<br>1M13 Transactions<br><br>2M16 Jake Gets Stoned<br>2M20A Alley<br>2M21 Rapists Castration<br><br>3M24 My Old Division<br>3M27 Go Fetch Dog<br>3M30 The Freeway<br>3M32 Alonzo Steals Money<br>3M33 Into The Jungle<br><br>4M41 Safety Is First / Busting Into Rogers<br><br>5M46 Helicopter<br>5M48 Sunset / Wet Streets<br>5M51 Jake Gets Beaten<br>5M52 Smiley Calls His Cousin<br><br>6M57 On The Roof<br>6M58 Jake Lands On Car<br><br>7M61 Alonzo Dies<br>7M63 Sun ShotMovie credits:<br><br>Music by Hans Zimmer & David Fleming<br><br>Music Supervisor: Joe Rudge<br><br>Score Produced by Hans Zimmer<br>Supervising Music Editor: Ryan Rubin<br>Music Editor: Nate Underkuffler<br>Music Production Services: Steven Kofsky<br>Additional Music by Ben Powell<br>Featured Guitar Soloist: Derek Trucks<br>Score Mixed by Seth Waldmann<br>Score Mix Assistant: Aldo Arechar<br>Technical Score Engineer: Chuck Choi<br>Technical Assistants: James Grimwade, Aldo Arechar, Steven Doar & Fabio Marks<br>Synth Programming: Hans Zimmer<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark Wherry<br>Digital Instrument Preparation: Taurees Habib, Raul Vega, David Naroth & Paul Salerno<br>Studio Manager for Remote Control Productions: Shalini Singh<br>Assistant to Hans Zimmer: Cynthia Park<br>Score Mixed at Remote Control Productions, Santa Monica CA<br>Music Clearances: Jessica Dolingerthats trueCan't think of a more meaningless and laughable award than the Oscar.
an oscar for this one? nahh...<br>maybe he gets a nomination for dune or bondMaybe WW1984damn it would be kinda awesome and hilarious if Lorne Balfe got Lorne Balfe’d LOLYeah 100% fake... And there was HJ rumor on Black Widow sometimes last year, so if you do the math...Henry doesn't have an official Instagram. It looks like you are referring to the account "henry0262020" which appears to be a fake account, to the best of my knowledge.
Henry Jackman is now Black Widow's composer, apparently in his instagram, posted a photoHah! Knew it. FYI, I'm not smoking anything. I don't smoke, and I abhor anyone who does.Oh interesting. When I said "refined his sound," I didn't mean that he was still trying to find his voice. This score absolutely exudes the qualities that make his work so appealing. You simply managed to put what I was trying to say in better terms. I'm definitely happy to give this one more goes in the future, but I remain more partial to some of the other installments.This is easily my favorite X-Men score, but I do agree there is a bit of an...*odd* feel to it sometimes. The impression I get is that Powell was reeeaallly pushing himself to write the most dense and complex and ambitious score he could, and I think he may have overreached a tad. There's definitely a big contrast between this score and the much tighter, more focused sound he was bringing in his action music from a couple years prior, like Paycheck or The Bourne Supremacy. I wouldn't say he "hadn't quite refined his sound yet" - this isn't Face/Off, his voice was pretty well established by this point - but he was trying to develop it a bit faster than it was naturally going to go.<br><br>At the same time, I love how this score goes for broke, and I hate to fault a composer for too much ambition. "Phoned in" is the LAST thing this score is. But Powell would iron out the kinks and by How to Train Your Dragon he was writing a score that was just as complex, but wore the complexity a bit more naturally than X3."There is nothing musically interesting in [Ottman's] X-Men scores except the main titles."<br><br>As if I didn't need a reminder that this place can house some ludicrous opinions sometimes (no offense intended there).<br><br>The Last Stand barely cracks the top 5 of X-Men scores for me, if only because I love the themes and it carries a lot of nostalgia for me. It's pretty clear imo that this score was at a point when Powell hadn't quite refined his sound yet. I wouldn't call it phoned in whatsoever, but it's easy to get lost at points when I'm listening to the full thing. But the highlights are too great for me to call it middling either, so it barely gets a solid grade in my book. <br><br>I'm likely in the minority when I say I actually prefer Dark Phoenix. It's much more solid as a whole product.
I like the tracksWow!!!Still my favorite score from the X-Men series.Not too stoked on Powell, but the way Ottman's able to squander a good theme makes him close to the bottom of the barrel in my book. There is nothing musically interesting in his X-Men scores except the main titles.I don't know what you're smoking but you need to get off it. In the way is this phoned in, the orchestration and everything about it is perfect. No score for X-men has come close to this one except maybe X2

ok, it's releasing on Tuesday, can't wait to hear it! I liked audio previews very much, sounds similar to batman, but more diverse!

And by the way, only in remote control productions you can get a sound like this, with state of the art equipment and great sound designers and music assistants, and of course with Hans Zimmer in the lead :)
No other composer/studio can make this kind of music!

@cloud and everybody else, Hans zimmer is the master, he is the one, no Williams no nothing, Hans rules, I mean star wars, what the he'll guys, star wars ha sthe shittiest soundtrack ever, at least Hans comes up with new ideas in each and every movie he does, Williams not so much, he's old and still holds his old ideas,what a loser, go Hans

I like both Zimmer and Williams. Both great. I think John has just been around longer and shown up in some famous films that make him more well known that Hans to a general audience point of view.
Im not saying Zimmer isnt good, I think he's a very talented composer.

Of course Hans would slap Victor, he has the utmost respect for John Williams, as he should. John Williams is a true genius who is a mile above other any other composers in this age in terms of classical, symphonic composition. He belongs with the greats like Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, and Wagner. Yet he also has the talent of writing for film, and every note he's ever written suits the film completely. Directors just know that whatever he does will be perfect, there's no need for collaboration and he can just write everything sitting at his piano. Hans is also a brilliant musician and composer, who writes a different style of music, in a different way. You can't really compare them, they both write for film but in different genres. Just because hans is more innovative in technology than Williams, doesn't mean that Williams sounds stale. I think his recent Harry Potter music was some of the best of his career, and I can't wait to see what Tintin sounds like. Victor obviously doesn't like classical music, hence his loathing of Maestro Williams.

I'm sorry all, I never meant to disrespect Williams, I just think u gotta go with the technology and synthesizers like Hans does, u can't always stay on the old stuff like williams

@Cloud: I love many composers out there but I still don't understand why everybody is so in love with John Williams. Maybe I'm not long enough in the soundtrack business with my 8 years. I guess he was good and revolutionary in his time. But now in 2010 I think soundtracks have progressed to a more modern sound which is as equally good as the previous era...

Sure enough Hans cannot sit down and write an entire score with a piece of paper and a pen. Williams is a classically trained guy while Hans is not. They are both very good at what they do but also very different. I beg to differ and have you check out Williams entire body of work between 1974 and 2008.

However to assess Williams work as "passe" or to say Williams should learn from Zimmer is just plain wrong. And to say that Williams work sounds 'repetitive' is laughable and ironic as Hans is basically reusing his own riffs and melodies in ALL of this scores.

Really with statements like these you lose any credibility you had and obviously shouldn't be posting on forums.

"Really with statements like these you lose any credibility you had and obviously shouldn't be posting on forums"

Why not? its my opinion, who are you? the admin? What i mean, with "Williams should learn from Zimmer" is in the evolution of compositions....yes Williams is a classically trained, i agree, but at this time, the "form?" of composition has changed from 1974. Dont be rude saying to me not posting in the forums...-.-

Just gotta add that this feels like an all out Zimmer action score. And the cue "Time" is about as Zimmerish as you can get.

My first reaction to "Time" was "Hans Zimmer meets John Murphy". Not that that's a bad thing; far from it!
