Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!
It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).
John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)Hubris: Choral Works by John Powell is now available to stream worldwide on all digital platforms! &#128526;<br><br>Also available to download in 192k/24bit high-resolution from johnpowellmusic .com<br>CDs on https ://bit.ly/2lcQ5Ig :) and coming soon to Amazon and other retailers!<br><br>Thank you, everyone, who was a part of this record!<br>Enjoy &#127926;&#127930;Mega cool :) Wann wird dieser Remix released? :)This would be really nice that as the release is only available for download, we had the choice to download it in a better quality than the CD itself. We have no material piece in the  hands, at least we would like to have such a contentment. I do have no action in Qobuz, but that should be a mandatory place for a download only music, for music lovers who like pure instrumental music. ;)<br>I'll be waiting for it !This album is absolutley wonderful!. I loved every second of it. I adore choirs in film music and an album like this is a very welcome treat!<br><br>Great job, Mr. Powell<br>10/10
Absolutely delightful score. Loved it.Where can we buy this "complete score"?What a wonderful soundtrack, I can not stop listening either. When I get home after work, Interstellar is the best soundtrack to listen to in the quiet of dawn. It's to get in touch with the Cosmos. Congratulations Hans Zimmer.from like.....4 years ago?I’m surprised nobody is talking about the expanded score that has leaked...!

Who knows what the tracks worked on Mark Mancina, Noah Sorota and Atli Örvarsson?


Mr. Fate2012-01-03 21:57:42
If you scroll down for a little bit you should come across a post made by Bondo that lists the credits for each track. However, it sounds like it's just what Bondo has figured--it might not be official.

Also, I think Noah Sorota may have some Modern Warfare tracks on his website (which, of course, would mean those are the ones he worked on). I don't know about the other composers though.


Bondo2012-01-04 00:28:41
My notes are based on composer interviews and what is available on their official sites. So probably 95% accurate

Now that's amazing!! Let's hope that the full score tops MW2.

I'm pleasantly surprised, those samples actually sound really nice.

The score is now available on iTunes and Amazon.

Buy it !


Trent Easton Navarro2011-11-08 13:35:38
Listening to it now. It's better than the samples had me believe. But it's still a shame that such a talented composer like Tyler is forced to write in the RC mode. Tyler is way more talented than this.


Khun2011-11-08 16:55:32
The score for MW3 is very 'Tyler' for me, not so RC. I can feel THE FAST & THE FURIOUS and RAMBO in it and it's still highly enjoyable. The main theme in "Call Of Duty: MW3" is epic catchy so far. "I Stand Alone", "Battle For New York", "Paris Siege", and "First Contact" are also my favorite tracks.

But they are still part of RCP team, right? Or they just gave some additionals here and here and they went away?

TIENVIELEN reply Replies: 6 || 2011-10-06 02:01:32
YES!!! Brian Tyler composed the Score for Modern Warfare 3... He is so much better than Remote Control Composers.


Papapalpatine772011-10-06 03:26:32
In your opinion he is


TIENVIELEN2011-10-06 16:57:27
RC Composers are not creative. stolen from another composers or from hans zimmmer. hans zimmer copied himself.


Papapalpatine772011-10-06 17:41:29
Omm......then why are so many RCP scores sought-after? The Dark Knight, Sherlock Holmes, Inception, Pirates of the Caribbean,, Transformers, The Lion King, Crimson Tide, King Kong......the list goes on. Those are just off the top of my head.


cheesy2011-10-06 18:45:54
I think there's a big difference between "creativity" and "innovation". Honestly, I personally think Zimmer's protegees could work on the latter. It's not a matter of being creative, it's a matter of coming up with their own styles and ideas. Balfe, Djawadi, Badelt; they're all excellent composers, no doubt about that, but there is room for innovation with their solo projects. i.e., they don't have to make everything sound exactly like something HZ himself would write. I'm not saying I have a problem there, I mean, if it ain't broke don't fix it, and I certainly don't think it's broken. But I can feasibly see where you're coming from.

Now, the whole "mass-collaboration" thing may screw that up a bit, but I guess that's why I always think of Remote Control Productions as a mass amount of composers working as one. Like gears in a clock, to be cliche. Hans could do it all by himself, no doubt, but I respect his ideals regarding music being a collaborative process. So I think they all work congruent to one another on purpose, to keep continuity in the style for a film score.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-11-02 00:25:16
"Omm......then why are so many RCP scores sought-after?"

Same reason why McDonalds is so popular. It's easy, gives you instant satisfaction, and when in the mood there is nothing like it. But you'll always regret it after 30 minutes ;)

And King Kong is not a RCP score. Zimmer and JNH may be friends, but that doesn't make him part of the studio. The minions can only dream of being as talented as Howard :)

Alex.2011-10-30 01:28:16
I highly recommend RCP fans check this out - as it has musical continuity with Gregson-Williams/Barton's Modern Warfare & Zimmer/Balfe/Metzger's Modern Warfare 2.

The end credits just owns about 1/2 of the previous score.

Anyone know if Lorne Balfe and Hans Zimmer are scoring Modern Warfare 3?


T-Mann0362011-09-14 04:35:45
Bad news... Brian Tyler will be composing the video game scores for Call of Duty: MW3 (Modern Warfare 3).


cheesy2011-09-14 04:46:04
...whoops. Maybe I should've scrolled down a little further first lol sorry. But it could be worse... I was afraid I'd hear the name "Sean Murray" again... *shudders*


Levente2011-09-14 13:17:17
I would not call it bad news for Brian Tyler scoring the next MW game.


Khun2011-09-15 07:38:27
Brian Tyler has always been a good choice for action/thriler genre. Though his scores can be both great and just okay, they never go bad for me. I assume there will be some sort of RAMBO, THE EXPENDABLES and maybe BATTLE: LOS ANGELES in it but I strongly believe he can do much better than Sean Murray.


Ele2011-09-15 12:44:07
One of the gameplay trailers had music from Brian Tyler. And after what I've heard, I'm really satisfied. I believe Brian can deliver as good music as Balfe did.

Anyone know what Mark Mancina, Jacob Shea, and Dave Metzger worked on? From what I've gathered in interviews, they divided the levels up by composer.

@Ele
Is Brian Tyler/Matthew Margesson confirmed to score MW3? It would be very kind of you to share a link refering your info :)


Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-05 23:07:39
@ Tim

I've also heard the rumor Brian Tyler is scoring the 3th MW, but never anything official. Would be cool if Tyler got the gig. He's probably the best composer around these days.


Anonymous2011-06-06 04:21:11
@ Trent
Wrong.


Tim2011-06-06 12:07:18
@ Trent
Agreed. One of my fav composers. He did an awesome job on Lego Universe. :)


Alex2011-06-07 08:43:18
Hybrid - can you ask anyone at RCP whether they are scoring MW3 or not.

So - who is definitvely scoring Modern Warfare 3.

Though I agree Brian Tyler is a great choice.


Tim2011-06-07 16:43:46
h t t p://w w w.youtube.com/watch?v=eabDmJMC0tg - this is a live gameplay demonstration of MW3. you hear in some parts cues from both MW2 and MW2 for demonstration purposes. but from 6:44 till the end (during the awesome boat ride on Hudson River) you'll be note a new cue which sounds very much like Brian Tyler (pretty much like Rambo and Battle LA)!


Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-07 17:11:23
@ Tim

Hard to hear the music due to all the sound effects but it indeed sounded very Tyler-esque.

Slightly OT: the game looks pretty cool, although really over the top.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-08 01:48:56
According to Keith Power, one of Brian Tyler's arrangers, Tyler is indeed scoring MW3. Awesome!


Ele2011-06-08 08:19:46
In 8:00 (demo) a really cool cue starts, this is probably the main theme. And yeah, it seems music from MW1 and MW2 will be used as well. Or maybe that was just a temptrack
