Really want this score!!Do we know if Lorne Balfe will be involved in Dune?  Maybe he could compose the Dune seriesAnd streaming practically dominates how the majority listen to music. Physical media is costly and expensive to manufacture and don't sell very well in stores as everyone prefers to to use Spotify and getting the same album for free. Same goes for movies and TV shows as well with Netflix.For me it's easy.<br>If there is a cd version I buy it. If there is only digital version.....NO<br>I'll pay for music while there are physical format (only cd really). I'm not interested in pay for downloads,Spotify, etcLorne has nothing to do with interstellar
GITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhereI think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.
Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?
Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.

The Dark Knight's Score Disqualified From Oscar Consideration




> Hans Zimmer marching to his own tune
Composer discusses his beef with Academy rules
By Hillary Crosley, Billboard




"Like it or not, The Dark Knight is going to keep popping up in headlines all the way through to the Oscars in February, so just be prepared. This latest news is rather disappointing for those who were a fan of Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's score - that even I'd been strongly supporting since June. The executive committee of the Academy music branch has disqualified their score from Oscar consideration this year. This actually happened to their Batman Begins score in 2005 as well, so this isn't the first time. The Academy's reason behind the disqualification states that five names were listed as composers, and Zimmer and Howard were only credited for "more than 60%, but less than 70%" of the score."

MOTION PICTURE SOUND EDITORS SOUND SHOW


Richard King, Hans Zimmer & Alex Gibson


Thanks to our founder member Etienne Grignon, we can present you a look of the exploration of the sonic world of this summer's blockbuster Batman movie THE DARK KNIGHT presented last October 27th at the Egyptian Theatre, Los Angeles

Oscar and Golden Reel winning supervising sound editor/sound designer Richard King ("War of the Worlds" "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" "Signs") as he presents his process of creating the film's soundscape. Excerpts of the movie were presented with special "pre-dubb" mixes to illustrate the variety of elements used to create an environment of serious sound.



Also in the mix: award winning music editor Alex Gibson ("Natural Born Killers" "The Prestige" "John Adams") with very special guest Hans Zimmer who revealed the way the musical score was shaped to fit the dark narrative of good and evil.

As an extra special attraction, all of the sound was played through a state-of-the-art audio system developed by Meyer Sound Laboratories so that you could hear every subtle and explosive element.
