@jazzy -- natürlich.  Any criticism must mean I am a Nazi.  Spoken like a modern U.S. Democrat.Yes. I know. But Giacchino has always worked with the Disney.John, on the other hand, is his equivalent in the Blue Sky and  Dreamworks.Well this is... fuck YESThe prologue music builds on the music from the very first teaser with lots of rhythmic variations. It has a very ominous sounding hum in the background and some sounds that are very hard to describe but are very addictive. Also, the tempo changes throughout the prologue. A lot of people disagree with me (some think it's nothing special) but I think the track should've been released.hmm... the part of the theme near the end reminds me of a few notes from pirates, different enough yet very familiar... where did you find this??
All right now I understand... How was the prologue music?There was a 5 minute prologue (it was more like a montage than a prologue) It was attached to IMAX screenings of Rogue One and Kong: Skull Island.What is the prologue that you refer to? I remember the opening of the movie having the first part of the Mole playing.Now that I've seen the movie I can say: <br><br>1- The album is pretty good. It's definitely not as bad as I thought it was, even though there are some stuff missing. I personally enjoy listening to it on its own.<br>2- The prologue music is NOT in the movie. <br>3- The cue that starts as they carry the stretcher is a variation of Supermarine (the first 3 minutes melody-wise)<br>4- I knew that drum break in Supermarine at 5:30 is too good to be in the movie. (Maybe it is, I'll pay more attention next time I see the movie again)<br>5- I love how they incorporated Elgar's theme in a very dark and twisted way throughout the score then introduced it in a very uplifting way. I got goosebumps. <br><br>To me personally, it would've been a perfect release if they had included the music from the prologue on the album.Well. It certainly sounds like HZ. Hybrid?
Is this legit?First 2 minutes look like to be demo of "Home"Zimmer, Badelt and Djawadih t t p s://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAleXrIgBr8&feature=youtu.be hello I found this a while ago it is a rejected theme from the film lone ranger, score compos by hans zimmer. Probably hans didnt like this theme and decided not to use it, or maybe it was directors decision not to use. Anyway, enjoy it! I like very much the score how it is now but this ideas is interesting!<br>Just listen to "The Oil" for an example
The orchestral intro to "it's on again" (also outro of "You're that spider guy", just not with the percussion from TASM2) was re-used all over the Dunkirk score as well. The bass line for it is pretty obviously or very similarly re-purposed in a few places.Bill Conti gets an Oscar...so...i think Hans get a nominationThe reason I believe it partially depends on the piece's composition date is because of copyright laws. Arrival had to pay rights to use Richter's piece, just like if it had used a pop song, and I believe this played a big factor in its disqualification. Elgar's piece is public domain now, so it would be like if a score had included a Mozart sonata (extreme comparison).LOL @Macejko. I think Edmund is completely exhausted now. It'll take two to three days regain all the fluids he lost.@ James D<br><br>I don't disagree that Star Wars is the tip-of-the-iceberg when it comes to film music projects. However, you have to remember Powell has been in the game far longer than Giacchino has. I don't believe it has to do with how long you've been in the business, but if you're "sound" can carry the movie.

JEFF RONA at Olympic Games 2008



Acclaimed film composer Jeff Rona has composed “Songs of the Sea: The Regatta Suite” at the invitation of the International Olympics Committee and the City of Qingdao, host of the 2008 Olympics Regatta. The music will be the theme of the Olympic regatta competition.

On July 16, in Qingdao at the Olympic Village, Rona will conduct a 110 piece orchestra, traditional Chinese musicians and one of the country’s top sopranos in the first ever performance of the music. Rona has tapped renown poet David Whyte and singer/songwriter Lisa Gerrard (of Dead Can Dance) to create words as part of the concert. Rona will bring the production to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong following the Qingdao world premier.

"For as long as I can remember. I have truly loved the Olympics - the spirit of global friendship and competition. A chance to see the best of the best" says Rona.

"The Olympics are about being a part of the world,” he continued. “The IOC wanted music that had a universal sound, one that conveyed the scope and prestige of the games. Dongxiao Xu, conductor of the Qingdao Symphony and a musical director for the Regatta, was introduced to my film scores quite by accident. He felt that this style was what they wanted the Olympic concert to feel like. I met with him both in Los Angeles and China, along with other musical and cultural directors for the city and the games, who were given the task of commissioning a composer for the concert - and it all went very well."

Rona traveled to the seaside town of Qingdao in January to tour the just completed Olympic Village, meet with the artistic directors, and get a feel for what he might compose. During his stay he walked through small village street markets, sat in a 1000 year old Taoist monastery and looked at the harbor where the races will take place. He visited all the concert venues throughout the city, dined with the local residents, and met with everyone involved in the regatta. He also went to Beijing to see the Olympic facilities, meet with leading Chinese musicians, tour the Great Wall of China. He also traveled to Xi'an to see the Terra Cotta warriors and travel through the country side to the Famen Temple - one of the holiest Buddhist shrines in China. All to get a better sense of a country most westerners know little about outside of politics.

Upon his return to Los Angeles, he began to sketch the 12 pieces that would make up the Regatta Suite. Using the state of the art computer technology he uses for film and television scores, he composed the symphonic pieces in a way that reflected his experiences in China, and brought his own personal sense of music and culture to the Olympics. He returns to China in July to record the Suite before the big tour begins in the 2 weeks leading up to the opening of the games.

Harry Gregson-Williams: Scoring the Return to Narnia!



For any film music buff, Harry Gregson-Williams is no stranger. We owe him such notable scores for all three Shreks, Gone Baby Gone, Chicken Run, Man on Fire, Flushed Away, Domino, Phone Booth, Bridget Jones: The Age of Reason, Enemy of the State, Antz and Kingdom of Heaven, among others. Such impressive credits that prove his being as comfortable in live action as in animation to provide elegant, smooth and at the same time strong scores.
