Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensationBalfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.
I really liked Richter’s score over balfesI listened Max Richter for years. He is the kind of select or minority composer who does his solo works and soundtrack for movies not so famous. <br>His solo works are really really good with quintet and piano and voice. "on the nature of daylight" is definitely the best. <br>His sountrack is not good as his solo, to be honest. I think "the Leftovers" (2014-2017, HBO series), "Miss Slaone" (2016) and "Mary Queen of Scots" (2019) are cool.<br>If you need some peaceful music for meditation or good sleep, listen to his work.Richter did his recording in january and june 2019. The Director himself is a fan of Richter, so the deadline and director are not the reason.<br>It seemed that producers were not satisfied with Richter's music and they wanted something new, that's why they got Lorne. It turned out Lorne brought a very limited new...@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.

Hello all. This is not meant to be one of those macro spam ads. I just know you all are as big of a fan as I am and I want to share my Star Wars- Force Awakens if Hans Zimmer were to write the opening trailer music. https://soundcloud.com/signuls/teaser-star-wars-fan-trailer- audio

Can I use that for my movies ...please , we haven't lot of budget


Edmund Meinerts2014-11-16 23:30:43
Not that you're in the right place or are going to get a response or anything...but for Beyond: Two Souls you might want to ask Lorne Balfe instead of Zimmer. ;)

My son Fabien, French, who will be 18 years old December 5th of this year is a fan of you,Hans Zimmer. He knows many of your works and often makes reference to you.
He has just returned at the University of Musicology to become a music composer of film.
I shall like making him a surprise by offering him something of you ( inscription, ... ). Would it be possible and how to obtain it?
I thank you for it in advance.


Zimson2014-11-12 21:26:41
I'm afraid something like an autograph is really hard to obtain unless you don't meat him personally. I recommend you to make your son a special present by buying something like an exclusive release of one of his works.
For example the Pirates of the Caribbean Treasure Collection, available on amazon.

There will also be a special release of his most recent work Interstellar which is currently only available for pre-order in the US. You can check its status on the label's (Water Tower Music) website, but make sure your son doesn't already have that in mind ;)

You can also watch out for the news on Hans Zimmer's concert series which will hopefully continue next year.

Hope I helped you. :)

The Greatest Film Composers of All Time

astrotema.wordpress.com/2014/10/23/the-greatest-film-compose rs-of-all-time/



Edmund Meinerts2014-10-23 11:45:44
That's a solid list (although I wish I could read the reasoning :p ). Danny Elfman and James Horner immediately stand out as "missing", but I'm not sure who I'd have them replace either. I guess I'm not that big a fan of Henry Mancini, but he's written so much iconic stuff it's hard to argue...


OKKU2014-10-24 13:10:18
Hi

Composers list is very difficult after first 5 ...Yes,disapprove first list.New list is here...James Horner and Henry Mancini,Two greatest. l think Horner's big main theme etc. is nothing.(May be Braveheart or Aliens) l think Elfman's only Batman and Fable themes is good,You must listen Mancini's Life force theme.Big one

Thanks
sorry my english.

Zimson 2014-10-26 21:24:46
Alan Silvestri on 6? This list has to be a joke.

My list:
Hans Zimmer
John Williams
John Powell
Howard Shore
James Horner

General list:
John Williams
Hans Zimmer
Ennio Morricone
Max Steiner
John Barry (No one actually knows that the James Bond theme was based on a composition by a guy called Monty Norman.)

Some of the samples came from that contest back in 2012 where fans were asking to make a commercial for Chrysler and were given all the samples used in TDKR's third trailer score to do so.
