;)I'm guessing, based on the credits, that Williams worked on "Dice and Roll" directly?He is.i don't doubt it, he and the director are good frineds and fans of each other, also they worked together on Annabelle so I'm willing to bet money he's the composer which is AWESOMEWallfisch just Retweeted the Shazam! trailer. Does that mean he is scoring it then? Hybrid can you say anything about this?
On Millers water planet, those ticking noises happen every 1.25 seconds. Each tick you hear is a while day passing on Earth.@MikeOTM<br>You’re absolutely right. Powell did an awesome job of staying within the musical sandbox of the SW musical universe but also was able to bring something fresh and original to the overall sound, something Star Wars really needs right now.Sweet. I've gotta say, this score surprised me in a good way. I've always loved Powell, but if you told me two years ago he'd write a Star Wars score, I'd have been hesitant about it. But Solo is really, really solid, even without the John Williams main theme. In fact, I like what Powell does with the JW theme better than the theme as JW wrote it.Wowww so many solo Powell!His part is not in the OST release...
No Paul Mounsey credits?Credits added !
<br>
<br>I didn't credit here JW for every arrangements of his theme & old SW themes that can be heard throughout the score.MoS, TASM2Badelt's "Solomon"?<br><br>This must be the "famous" Dark Knight reference that the "critics" are talking about.I could have sworn I had heard the Solomon theme and some of the same<br>Chords that Kraemer had used...<br>My mistake lol<br><br>And Balfe does seem like a genuinely nice person. Hell he even takes the time to put out unreleased music, not something most composers do. <br>That is exactly why I hate when people take personal jabs at composers (usually at Junkie XL for some reason). It’s fine to not like the music, everyone has different tastes, but don’t criticize a composer for writing what he was asked to write.
I agree! He actually invited me to come to a recording session in London for this film, man it killed me that I couldn’t afford to go. But I was so thankful he even thought to ask! Top notch guy.Say what you want about Balfe but he's a really nice guy, and always answers my questions on FB and others on twitter.I believe him as I didn't hear anything from Kraemer.I asked Balfe on Facebook if he used any of Kraemers theme and he said noI Know, Hybrid, just sayin' that i a fan of Benjamin Wallfisch's music Scores since lights Out to Blade Runner 2049 and i say this is another excelent Work from Wallfisch

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.

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.
