Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.
Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!So no solo cello by Tina Guo? Is it digital then or is it no cello?CD or LP release?
Why is Lorne Balfe not nominated for a Grammy for Ad Astra ?To my understanding, James never worked for Hans or Remote Control. They’re simply friends and have collaborated on a few projects. Powell (and Gregson-Williams) used to work at Remote Control before moving on to his own studio/endeavors. <br><br>BUT, I am equally as excited for James to return to Disney Animation. Very excited for this and Jungle Cruise.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 Dolinger
thats 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 LOL

Well ya, for the most part. But what about Lorne? I do not know what he sounds like. It's not like I can just listen to the whole thing and be like "ok, Time is Lorne, 528491 is Hans, Mombasa is Hans & Lorne..." you know what I mean?

Shame he didn't win. Hybrid, inside the booklet for the Soundtrack it states that Half Remembered Dream and Waiting For A Train contain portions of Non Je Ne Regrette Rien by Edith Piaf. Perhaps you should add an asterisk or the plus sign next to each track noting this? Also maybe which tracks Johnny Marr contributed to and which one Lorne did additional music with? If you can, thanks =)

Hybrid, can we get a list of who did what here please?

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-13 00:00:00
...ok, I think his line of work make sence, when you look at this project in particular. Hans said in various interviews that he has never even watched a scene while scoring the movie. So Hans did all the themes, all the sounds and so forth - like a musical, narrative dictionary, while Lorne just made them fit to the pictures. That really make sence!! Earth circles the sun! :-)

Richard reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-12 00:00:00
Never mind the fact that the score's largely derived from said thematic content anyway. I don't think there's a *whole* lot to worry about either way.

Insider reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-12 00:00:00
No one said Hans phones it in. You dont need to believe me, but its true. Everyone at RC ghostwrites, why is it so hard to believe? Its been going on for years.

@Ds, Maybe its why the Academy never lets Zimmer win?

Insider reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-12 00:00:00
Oh and see how Lorne Balfe is credited as "additional music"? Its there for a reason.

Bador reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-12 00:00:00
seriously i believe insider, and no i'm not the user "insider" ^^

fact IS that lorne and others do so many work for hans. hans really is just doing the themes and the others do the rest. that's now so long with every soundtrack. that's why the scores haven't the quality like they had years ago.

but yes, i don't care anymore that much. i like lorne and i love hans. so bring more scores :D and please release all the scores in the "recordings sessions" way. last samurai, batman begins, the thin red line, etc etc

Wow guys you've discovered the Earth is not flat ! Congrats !


Seriously, HZ can write an hour of theme suites, Lorne will arrange them to fit the movie and add subthemes, ideas etc...

So what ? It has always been HZ's process of writing... The score still is HZ as his music is everywhere... It's not "less" HZ or "more" Lorne... It's HZ/Lorne, like Sherlock, Angels & Demons, TDK... That's all... ;)

Bador reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-12 00:00:00
what??? wait... waiiiit... you say... earth isn't flat? No man, nooo, that can't be true. Please say, that this is just a rumor... please =(

but hans still does actual cues? or not at all?

it's hardly a case of write the suites then sit back and do nothing?

Iceboy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-12 00:00:00
And yes, Hans still wrote music. Its not like he did nothing lol

On the subject of "ghostwriting", does it bother anyone at all? What are peoples thoughts on the matter?

Wait when does an acoustic guitar play in the score?

Insider reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-11 00:00:00
I have a friend in the film music world who is a close friend of Hans'. He has known him since before he was big, and this friend of mine also knows Lorne Balfe very well. According to my source (and this really IS inside information), Hans just did the themes and Lorne wrote the majority of the score. Such a shame; seems that Hans is getting a bit lazy as time goes on. Gone are the days where he would write most or all of a score :(

RollTide88 reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-11 00:00:00
Yeah, I don't believe that for a second. Hans and Chris Nolan seems to be pretty close--so I don't think he would phone it in like that. I mean, what did he do while Lorne wrote the score? Take naps?

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-11 00:00:00
you know what would be awesome? a complete score - 2 or 3 CD's...just a small spark of hope within a dream ;)

If what you say was true, Hans Zimmer woudn't have been nominated for the Oscar (for that reason JNH & HZ weren't nominated for TDK)

I absolutely love this movie and the soundtrack. I saw the movie at jus tthe right moment and was totally blown away; and the soundtrack really helped to do that, especially on a massive screen at ear-bleeding volumes. I was aghast with awe and totally absorbed till the end. I didn't want it to end!

I am listening to it for the third time today and felt obligated to track down a site where I can make comment on it - other than my Facebook page of course; you know, somewhere that actually matters.

The soundtrack is superb - really powerful and absorbing. It is a brilliant change for Hans Zimmer, whose soundtracks HAD become a little too ... similar. This one really changes that with melodic piano notes, beautiful use of the guitar (both electric and acoustic) ... and, of course, who can ignore the brass section working overtime to create the 'in you face' crescendo. In fact, the whole soundtrack is a break away form so many OSTs before it that I didn't believe it could be Hanz doing it. It had similarities to other people such as John Murphy and I love it for that.

It is wonderful and absorbing (did I say that already) - and best of all - it can be played without having to have the movie on at the same time.

So many times a soundtrack only fits the movie and cannot be listened to on it's own for fear of bleeding ears and complaints from other people around you. This one has it's moments but they score is so well crafted that you sincerely appreciate it magnitude.

Fantastic work Hans! I'd shake your hand right off for this one.

Thank you.

Ben Miles
