 FAN COMMENTS
Again a "rumor" comment that's trying to undermine Steve's work. And in this case, an entire score. Lorne fans, please stop trying to constantly undermine other composers in favor of your guy. It's childish and extremely disrespectful. You've done it multiple times on these boards. What's next? You gonna claim that Lorne secretly scored the entire Transformers franchise? And Lord of the Rings. And Harry Potter. <br><br>Seriously, it's getting really old, really fast. <br><br>Not to mention the fact that Steve, as a composer, is much, much more experienced and established than Lorne. He's got nothing to prove. Steve takes his time when it comes to scoring. He's choosing carefully. He's got more than enough time to focus on his projects. While Lorne's name is attached to 30 million different projects, some of them cheap B-movies like Hurricane Heist. And you think he's scoring them all by himself? The irony of it all is that if anyone is using ghostwriters most of the time, it's Lorne. Not Steve. And I'm saying that as a Lorne fan as well. I'm not just a Jablonsky fan. I appreciate Lorne's work as well. But I'm not undermining other composers in favor of him.Bay has Lorne scoring his films now cause they established a relationship on 13 Hours, and Bay didn't even want Lorne for that; he wanted Hans but he didn't want to go through the exhausting process of another Bay blockbuster so he brought in Lorne instead.<br>And even then, Hans still worked together with Lorne very closely on the project (Hybrid said he was there for all the meetings, helped with synth programming, etc)Of cause Balfe worked on it .That is why Bay now uses Balfeyou can absolutely hear the 13 hours temp track in Battlefield and We Have to GoNot to mention that Steve and Lorne structure their power anthems differently.<br>To me this score sounds like 100% Steve
I wouldn't say so, Lorne stacks his ostinatos and rhythms on top of each other (see Blackwood, Last Man on the Moon) and shotguns piano writing all over his scores in addition to using it for almost any kind of emotional scene (see Manny, Duck Shoot, Brothers Theme from Hurricane Heist)Well, if all we're using to distinguish Lorne is ostinatos and piano writing, then in that case, he's all over this film!The interesting thing is, that if Lorne did work on it, his work is indistinguishable from Steve's cause I hear none of his ostinatos or extensive piano writing.@Hybrid, a while ago I saw a rumor stating that Lorne Balfe ghostwrote this score and dismissed it as crap.<br>But looking at the credits I see some people from his team have been involved( his assistant Queenie Li as music coordinator, and Max Aruj and Steffen Thum did arrangements..)<br>Do you know why and to which extent he was involved or why his team worked on the score?This little gem of a score is one of my favourites of Lorne's smaller projects.<br>Got a great main theme and varying instrumentations of it throughout, plus he's using a real orchestra which is always good. (Check out The Heist, very upbeat jazzy piece)
Balfe - for anything than bad TV? How much did you smoke tonight? The Mission score must have been a studio decision but Balfe should not be allowed anywhere near a (any) franchise - the dude is a headcase and a total copycat. Tell me one piece that Balfe did that is original?Balfe - for anything than bad TV? How much did you smoke tonight? The Mission score must have been a studio decision but Balfe should not be allowed anywhere near a (any) franchise - the dude is a headcase and a total copycat. Tell me one piece that Balfe did that is original?Looking forward to what Ben's going to do with that movie.Hellboy coming by Sony Classical at 4/5/19Kung Fu Fighting (Celebration Time) on KFP3 also has a HZ credit despite again the booklet not crediting him for anything on it.
I noticed that on Kung Fu Fighting here, Try on KFP3, and Here Comes the Sun on Bee Movie complete that there are primary composer credits on them (HZ, JP here, HZ on Try, Rupert on Here Comes the Sun) but both the film and booklet info doesn't credit them. Did they do ghost arranging/producing on them?Lorne Balfe score for Fallout was perfection so would be perfect for a Chris Nolan film. He also has worked with him on Dunkirk and Inception.But I expect and hope Hans is doing the score .If Hans is notworking with Nolan then Lorne Balfe should do it .So... Can it be considered as the second CD? Or something like that?<br>If Nolan is not working with Zimmer, Ludwig Göransson would be a dream choice for me. I really think he is an up and coming composer capable of great things. <br><br>But of course, I rather Nolan stick with Zimmer.

A new Jim Dooley Interview

The website Xanga.com has released an interview from Jim DOOLEY who speaks from his past, current and futur works. Extract...

Clark DOUGLAS: What do you have coming up in the not-too-distant future?

Jim DOOLEY: Well, I'm working on "The Da Vinci Code" with Hans Zimmer right now, that'll keep me busy until about March. I do have a video game I'm scoring from March to July, but I can't say which one that is, because it hasn't been announced yet. I have a German animation film which they'll be releasing in Europe in May. It's got some really interesting songs.

CD: For "The Da Vinci Code"... that's a storyline with a lot of varied and different elements involved. What sort of direction are you and Hans taking musically with that film?

JD: Hans has all ready... pardon the pun... cracked the code, so to speak. Before I came in to lift a finger, he'd written a 700-bar suite for this score, it's pretty breathtaking, my participation in this is not so much the upfront writer, but more the extension due to the slightly accelerated schedule of production, we've been scoring four weeks from yesterday, so it's pretty tight.

James Dooley
SOCOM 3 composer shares his musical secrets

by Spence D

James Dooley got his foot in the door, in regards to film, television, and videogame composition, by becoming a protege of noted Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer.
Under the tutelage of Zimmer Dooley worked as an additional composer, arranger, and orchestrator on several of Zimmer's film projects. Since then he's successfully branched out into the niche realm of composing music for theatrical trailers (he's crafted scores for the previews of Elf, Man on Fire, and King Arthur).

FILM MUSIC MAGAZINE COVER STORY :
Harry Gregson-Williams: Zen, Hard Work and Destiny

By Jerry McCulley


decade after he left his native England for Los Angeles with little more than hand luggage, a visitor?s visa and but the vaguest of career prospects, Harry Gregson-Williams counts himself extremely fortunate to be amongst Hollywood?s most successful and in-demand film composers. Working from his sprawling new state-of-the-art scoring/recording complex just blocks from the Venice Beach boardwalk, Gregson-Williams has just completed director Andrew Adamson?s adaptation of author C. S. Lewis? The Chronicles of Narnia, and is already preparing to resume longstanding collaborations with directors Tony Scott and Joel Schumacher in 2006.
