To rockhound, <br><br>Well sir, apparently you just don't like Bruce Willis. That "smiling" you speak of is part of his charm as an actor. That's just how his face is. I don't have a problem with it, and honestly I've never heard people complaining about it. Until now. But fair enough, you have the right of an opinion. I'm just sharing mine.<br><br>Cheers.Still waiting for news. From what I heard, as the film is Alcon / Warner / Sony-Columbia co-production, WaterTower is not releasing the soundtrack, and neither is Sony. Alcon is... The thing is, I don't think they ever released a soundtrack on their own before lol... Might be why all this is taking a little time... But it's coming. :)Sorry, I ment GitS*I think this is even more expected than Dunkirk so a score release I think will definitely happen.<br><br>And this has been in the hands of Zimmer and Wallfisch for more than two months. GuyS was a different story because Lorne entered the project in the last month before the release.They dont have to give track titles when they announce a release. Remember Dunkirk, the score was announced in advance but track names arrived on release day!
This is score is easy money for the studio... Of course there will be a score release.Maybe coz the track titles are spoiler-ish.Any news on an OST release date? I hope this isn't another Ghost in the Shell. It would surprise me if a Zimmer release for a film this big was not released, but isn't the record label cutting it kind of close, with not even an announcement made with less than two weeks before the premiere?Yeah, I'm not sure why Gavin Greenaway is listed as conductor and there are a lot of credits associated with orchestra recordings, because I am almost 100% sure that the entire score is made from samples. If you aren't sure, have a listen to Track 8: Ambushed and at 0:48, tell me if those strings playing the melody line aren't samples! I would also suggest listening to Track 7: Gatekeeper (keep an ear out for the string resonance of the cello) and Track 9: The Tusk of Ganesh (listen for the high sustained strings on E above the piano theme). Those examples are the most obvious to me (in my own opinion). Overall, the score just has such a clean and precise sound (especially the percussion) that I am convinced no (or very few) live musicians were recorded.The score is actually great! But I wonder, if there would be the complete score or the recording sessions released. Because, for example, when Vayentha calls Sims to make a report, there is a music playing that is not contained in the original score.
Ask the stupids who voted ! lolWhy does this already have a 2/5 rating?The first Kingsman is by far superior than Civil War and it has nothing similiar to The Winter Soldier. <br><br>Civil War for me was quite bland and generic but the first Kingsman has some very good themes and great strong action cues.<br><br>On the other hand I really liked The Winter Soldier, but not as much as the Kingsman scores.Lorne had plenty of time, and recorded this in April, so no, nothing from Pinar will remain.@ Hybrid, what do you know about this release? Lorne rewrite the entire score? Or he use any material from Pinar Toprak? Do you know if Pinar recorded the score or just write before she was replaced? Thanks
Finally!Loving this weeks releases from Balfe from Ghost . It is an amazing scoreHere<br><br>http: // www.hans-zimmer.com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1597<br><br>The score is getting release by WaterTower3 left ! ;)My fault, it was "Rage and Serenity"

Sound Byte: Meet the Composer - Disney Epic Mickey's Jim Dooley

James (or Jim) Dooley is an Emmy-award-winning composer who graduated from New York University. (He was also a speaker at this year's PAX, which you can read about here.) In 1999, he began working with Hans Zimmer on Gladiator, which then led him to work on movies such as The Da Vinci Code, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, King Arthur, and many more. In addition to having an extensive background in film, he's a prolific composer in other forms of media, including television, where in 2008 he won an Emmy for his music in the hit ABC series Pushing Daisies. When it comes to video games, though, he has worked on Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, a couple of SOCOM games, and, of course, Disney Epic Mickey. Watch our interview below to find out what kinds of challenges he faced when it came to reimagining some of Disney's most famous tunes.

Matthew Margeson Gets In Line With The Sky

I started banging around on an old organ that my parents had in the house when I was about 4 years old or so. My parents thought it would be a good idea to start some lessons very soon after. When I turned 5... they hired this old, old man to come to our house every week and give lessons. I think he was maybe 72 years old or so when he started teaching me, and he actually was my private instructor for the next 12 years.

Throughout my youth, I was very much involved in musical theatre. I was involved in a lot of community theatre, doing musical direction for performances. During this time, I also had a little part-time job working at a small local video rental store. Because there was very little foot traffic at the store - the employees basically just hung around all day and watched films. I think both of these situations were a good recipe for me to have a strong interest in film music. I watched a lot of movies, I played a lot of music, and had quite a bit of experience performing music live to people acting on stage.

I studied Film Scoring & Composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and shortly after - drove out to Los Angeles. That, and a little bit of working with the right people in LA kind of brings us to where I am today.

Hans Zimmer to join Hollywood Walk Of Fame -UPDATED-



Hans Zimmer is to be honoured with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, organizers announced Thursday.

The 53-year-old will receive star number 2426 at an unveiling ceremony tomorrow. Guests are to include director Christopher Nolan, whose recent films Inception, The Dark Knight and Batman Begins are all accompanied by Zimmer's music.

The composer said he would dedicate his star to agent Ronni Chasen who was murdered in Hollywood last month, shot in her car on Sunset Boulevard. Chasen had represented Zimmer for many years.

Hans Zimmer was nominated twice for a Grammy this week, for his work on Sherlock Holmes and Inception.
