@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.
I suspect that the release was just what they had originally planned, with a couple of bonus tracks thrown in to appease Fox. They likely didn't put too much thought in what they added, since people who have spoken with Lorne said he wasn't aware of the release and was surprised Prayer wasn't on it. I'm just glad anything got released at all after everything that has gone before.<br><br>Regarding that theme you mentioned, is it one that sounded like the personal motif Ethan has in M:I Fallout? Because while I did initially assume that was Balfe too, it seems it was actually Richter. Haven't gotten to hear Lorne's parts yet, so who knows he if he also did a similar thing.It’s not included and I’m very confused. I think there’s a good amount of unused tracks or the way the score was used was so terrible that only few tracks were memorable to me. <br><br>There’s a theme that plays during two tragic moments - I thought it was “Prayer” but it isn’t. I think it’s by Lorne as it’s closer to the direction he took. <br><br>I wish they gave us more Balfe :(I know this is probably the wrong place for it but I'd love if Hnas would one day release a CD of just his demo sketches and suites. I find hearing the original intentions/ideas even when rough really fascinating.11.22.19Yeah lol one way or another... :P

S**t! Kingdom of Heaven mixed with Narnia. And I've only listened 30 sec fragments.

HGW is now at the same level as Jablonsky and other Zimmer-clones. Too bad, he was my favorite post-Zimmer composer (next to Powell).

It are just 30 sec samples. You can't say it's a bad album based on such small samples.

To have an opinion you should have listened for at least 5 times to the album. And preferably watched the movie too...

I dont see how you clowns cant see every composer sounds like himself. Its called a a voice morons.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-05 00:00:00
I didn't hear anything that sounded like a copy. But yes, of course HGW's scores would have common elements to them. Even John Powell and James Newton Howard have certain styles which come through in their composing. And how can you not expect this to sound similar to Kingdom of Heaven, given that it's set in the same geographic area?

Yeah ! Great !! :-)

I respect the fact that composers have a voice but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about not bothering to come up with a new theme for a new movie. When I watch Prince of Persia i want to hear an original PRINCE OF PERSIA theme, not a remixed version of one of the tracks from Kingdom of Heaven. It's not the composer's "voice" it's just a lack of originality.

Horner is worse though, because the 4-note theme he uses in 90% of his scores wasn't even composed by himself - it's the theme from Rachmaninov's first Symphony.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-05 00:00:00
I sincerely hope this board doesn't degenerate into another free-for-all like with "Clash of the Titans"...

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-04 00:00:00
He is turning into Horner. He even used that four note danger motif of Horner's in the third Shrek score: Track 7, "Charmed and Dangerous", starting from 0:34.

what? reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-04 00:00:00
Anybody else notice that the main theme is a straight re-use of a phrase from Kingdom of Heaven?

Lets hope Harry isn't turning into James Horner. Lets not forget that "The Battle of Kerak" and "The Battle" from LWW have the exact same opening dozen bars.

Kingdom of Heaven is a truly amazing and great score :)
still i want to hear what streitenfeld have for robin hood, i think hes music is quite lovley =)

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-02 00:00:00
Both, actually ;) I'd say Kingdom of Heaven is HGW's magnum opus and based on the preview clips this could be very good too. So if I was Ridley Scott, I'd definitely stick with Harry on Robin Hood. But let's not condemn Streitenfeld just yet. The things he has done for Scott's movies have been rather functional so far and the clips from Robin Hood actually sound promising to my ears.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-02 00:00:00
I think he means Kingdom of Heaven, actually. This score sounds good so far--a little bombastic in some places but still very well-written! Looking forward to it!

Nice cover. The release is still 2 months away so I guess we'll have to wait a bit more for the track lengths and sound clips. But it should be well worth the wait!

@ 2010/03/27

I don't know, I would assume that either the producer/director did not like where he was going with the music, or he had to drop out. Though James Horner for a Karate Kid flick? Eh. Need to pick some new blood.
