Hybrid, what did Danny think of what Hans was doing? Since he tries to claim that no Batman composer after him wrote a "theme"...Okay, so I'm not a fan of Balfe's; I think it's objectively the case that much of his music is very, very similar to work he's already done (seriously, how many times has he made obviously variations of Journey to the Line / Time?). However, his best work is both highly creative and emotionally compelling IMO, not sure how one could expect more than that. Ironclad is actually a good example of thisActually Hybrid my comment is based on their separate  interviews years apart. Zimmer's arguably dismissive comment years ago and Elfman's arguably stern remark about his theme being the only Batman theme, of recent note. <br><br>If they are both good friends who go to each other's barbecues on Sundays and drink beer together, more power to them. If they have a stellar working relationship, well, I obviously am not privy to that, but good on them. However based on what I've heard my impressions don't lean towards the latter.<br><br>If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. <br>  <br><br><br>"Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty."<br><br>Blackwood might want to have a word with you.Too many songs! But at least there is 15 tracks of score.<br><br>BTW, I don't think Djawadi is able just to do themes. His score in GoT Season 7 shows that he is able to do action tracks very well. Also, in GoT Season 6, he shows that he is able to have many themes and develop them in many different ways.
Meta your comment is based on smoke...<br><br><br>Do you have any idea of what Hans & Elfman's relation is ? How many scores Danny mixed at Remote Control ? That when Hans was writing Batman Begins, Danny was in the next room and Hans invited him to check what he was doing ? How many people from RCP Elfman recruited to help him ?lol it's too funny the guy even spent the time of typing all this...<br><br>Some people apparently have very boring lives on this planet !These comments by “Balfe” are comical.god knows where such venom comes from . Maybe an ex employee probably.he was correct on one point .He is indeed a trailer composer.He just did the mission impossible trailer!!!LOL. I guess this "Balfe" guy is one of those trolls from Stop RCP group.Many benevolent saviours explaining the error of our music tastes have surfaced recently, haven't they?
Eh, Mr. Ellipsis, I have to take issue with your appeal to popularity. Justin Bieber sells millions of records. That doesn't make his music good. Last year's piece of crap pointless Beauty and the Beast remake made a frankly terrifying amount of money at the box office. Doesn't stop it being a piece of crap.Guys, I know a lot of you probably think I'm an overly critical snob, but next time you do, just remember this guy and realize how much worse I could be. :pBalfe is not a composer, but still he gets to compose dozens of films and shows every single year, wow. He must be doing something good if he is on of the most busiest composers out there, don´t you think? Or you want to tell me that every producer, director or whoever hires him is deaf? Do you know how many films had to be re-scored by Balfe in the past few years? <br><br>Why you feed the troll?<br><br>Wrong.<br><br>1. Wallfish is a very fine composer, period. Hans is a synth guy.<br><br>2. If Hans wasn't concern about BR he wouldn't do it.<br><br>3. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. Hans choose to did it and agreed to involve Wallfish.<br><br>4. Maybe true, but it wasn't the thought of Villeneuve.
here we go again:<br>Why Hans Zimmer Got The Job You Wanted (And You Didn’t)<br>https://behindtheaudio.com/2013/07/hans-zimmer/Hey you guys.<br><br>Balfe is a trailer composer not someone who composes real scores. He helps Hans out on his projects and occasionally may have a good idea. He is not an artist, simple as that.<br><br>Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty. The epitome of that is Terminator Genisys that even fans of the franchise found embarassing (and that is for a series based on synth scores). The samples are especially abhorrent<br><br>How he climbed to compose music for real films is a mystery. Go back to one of his earliest scores, the 2009 'score' for Ironclad, to find how utterly disappointing his work has been all the way throughout his career.<br><br>Balfe is a hack. He will never be considered a real composer. The industry knows Hans is pushing him and once that attention goes somewhere else, as it does with Hans frequently, Balfe will be immediately forgotten. Tell me - who actually wants a Lorne Balfe score for their film!!<br><br>You rapid fans supporting his work will be laughed at as being idiotic symbiotic followers. Get a fragging grip.<br><br>Balfe is not a composer. <br><br><br>This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:<br><br>1. Enhancing the work of Vangelis for a project he has always admired.<br>2. The chance to work with an absolutely open palette of sounds<br>3. The opportunity to truly reinvent not only film music but MUSIC.<br>4. Ability to work with Denis Villeneuve, a man who gets scores nominated for the fact that they are innovative.<br><br>How did Hans fail here?<br><br>1. Wallfisch, a very fine composer is not a synth guy.<br><br>2. Hans does not give a shit anymore, seriously.<br><br>3. An imposed composer on a passion project rarely works<br><br>4.

"Crusades" has to be one of the most exciting action cues to come out of RC in a long time.

Bondo reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-19 00:00:00
Having seen the film Hybrid, can you speculate where the missing tracks from the original score would have gone? I'm just trying to make a chronological tracklist for both the new and original scores, and I won't be able to reference the movie myself. Thanks! =)

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-19 00:00:00
Hi Bondo, nice to see you here, hope all is well !

"Final Battle" is the old version of "Killing The Demon"

"Season Of The Witch" is an unused "Main Title" which should have been after the Prologue.

"Anna & Kay" is the old version of "I Was There"

"Felson & Kay Fight" is the old version of "Teach Him Some Manners"

"Behmen", I don't know, it might have been near the beginning, when the character appears for the first time, after the Main Titles.

From the old OST :

"The Cardinal" should have been between "The Village" & "Is That A Witch?"

"Trenches" should have been before "Eckhart's Funeral"

"Dungeons" doesn't ring a bell... There's no such a scene in the film... Was supposed to be near the beginning, but as all the Opening of the movie changed almost totally, I guess it was just wiped out !

And "Deliver Us From Evil", I don't know either, I might have missed the sentence in the movie... :O lol

;)

Thanks for the info, Hybrid! Things here are.... sandy. ;)
I'm having a pretty tough time getting soundtracks, so it looks like I'll have to resort to iTunes and/or Amazon MP3. At least I have access to the internet though! I'm digging the new stuff for SEASON, especially "Crusades"

I can't say yondaime... I can't say... :S


BTW I updated the tracklist for Season ! It's quite a mess !

I did watch the film yesterday (which was pretty cool, far from those terrible reviews I read, but I'm good audience ;)) !

And you want something in chronological order, it should look close to that :

01 - 1234 AD
02 - Crusades
03 - The Plague
04 - The Village
05 - Is That The Witch ?
06 - Behmen & The Girl
07 - Teach Him Some Manners
08 - Eckhart's Funeral
09 - Crossing The Bridge
10 - Wormwood
11 - Wolf Attack
12 - Road To Severac
13 - Clavis Salomonis
14 - Dead Monks
15 - Like Cockroaches
16 - Kill The Demon
17 - I Was There

:P

@Hybrid

Why does hans not want to release tlk complete score, its one of his best masterpiece, why not share the music, he seems upfront on sharing music.

thanks for all ur answers

Will there be a CD of Season of the Witch? Or, is it download only?

@yondaime

No, HZ said that IF he wanted to start a process of releasing TLK, it would be success guarantee...

But HZ is not of any help for (re)releasing his old stuff, so I don't expect anything, until the day he proves me wrong...

@atlifan

It's digital only, you can find it on many stores like Amazon, iTunes...


I'll add the new tracklist later today... Looks pretty interesting... Apparently they removed quite a lot of the old score there ! This score's story is really one of a kind... :O

Anyway, I'm curious about how they'll present the new OST... Atli wrote 35 min extra... Are they gonna just add a few cues to the OST ? Delete some old cues ?

Should be interesting... :P

The film is at the theatre now (in US).....anything new for the reworked score and the physical CD?

hopefully this gets a rerelease with the additional music

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-22 00:00:00
About what I wrote, Atli commented... First, he was alone to rework the score, no co-composer, it was an imdb mistake... ;)

Atli : "It's been a bit complicated. The score came out "by accident" and then got pulled. I did the rescore so I expect to add some of the new music on there and hope to re-release when the movie comes out.

The good thing is that the reshoots have made it a better film and I think the score is better too."

This is very interesting!

We now have a LEGAL bootleg/ rejected score :D

The film itself looked very interesting, especially the grime on Christopher Lee!
Let's hope it gets released :P

why did this come out so early i thought the film is coming out this january 2011?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-12 00:00:00
I think it's one really weird situation here ! Quite rare !

The film was supposed to come out in late March, so the soundtrack was planned... They finally cancelled the film (at the last minute, it seems), but they did not cancel the score, which was available for several months !!

Now, the soundtrack is not available anymore (last time I checked the various digital stores, at least...), the film got some reshoots, reedits etc... Apparently a new composer came in (to rework the new version of the film ?) and it's coming out in January... I don't know what's gonna happen to the score in film, or to that score release...

Actually, it's pretty fun, I think this release can now be considered a bootleg... And, who knows, maybe a lot of it is a rejected score after all !

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-12 00:00:00
It'll probably be re-released when the film is--Varese would be the logical choice, since they released all of Atli's previous scores.
