Is the soundtrack released on CD, or it's only digital ?by that logic he would’ve done blade runner 2049. He’s retiredMakes you wonder why they didn't get Vangelis himself.Naw man this is the right page lolWrong page?
Rupert Gregsons amazing blending of orchestral and electronic sounds in Aquaman is epic.Arthur is the best?why Slenderman theme not getting the praise it deserves?Conrad Pope is only conductor in this, not orchestrator.Creatively speaking I can see why they choose that particular synth style, and my guess has nothing to do with that Thor Rganarok score. <br><br>It has MUCH to do with one composer: VANGELIS. You cannot see Aquaman landscapes and not to think of Vangelis (Blade Runner to be precise) and by all means, if you know well Mr. Papathanassiou's body of work, in his style.. he even has an album called OCEANIC. <br><br>I mean, RGW even uses the same exact 5 notes in which Vangelis tended to end up some of his themes, as also closing notes for one of his themes. It has nothing to do with Ragnarok.. lets not be so short sighted please.^ And I think a big part of that is the sound mixing. I understand each composer has their own unique voice, but in Holkenborg’s case he tends to mix everything so harshly, particularly the brass. It definitely muffles the music to a degree. <br><br>Similar issue I have with Giacchino, who I think writes amazing music which gets undercut by the really dry mixing.
Arthur alone is worth the price of the whole album. Amazing piece.To me it sounds like the composer's usual fare, only this time it has a touch of Conrad Pope every now and then in the orchestrations. Won't be surprised if CP's involvement went beyond just conducting.I think some pices of music was simillar to bane theme in dark knight rises. Isnt it ?Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through Paris
Does anyone have the chronological order yet?? That would be great!@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Gotta agree with you, I definitely think WW is a far stronger score. That’s not to say I think Aquaman is bad, but none of the themes have really impressed me at all. The orchestral/synth hybrid is pretty cool, but once again I think it was done far better with Thor: Ragnarok. <br><br>(Will say this though; “Black Manta” is a badass track)First Impressions:<br><br>This might be one of the most “traditional” scores that Tom has scored at this point in his career. The strings/brass still have the signature JXL sound to them, but the music feels more mature when compared to something like Mad Max or even his most recent outings. <br><br>I’m still picking up on the themes as of now (the most obvious being the main fanfare and Hester’s tune) but the idea for Shrike is definitely a clear standout. Especially when it gets an emotional spin later on. The use of woodwinds and the operatic female solo vocals also are a nice addition.<br><br>Overall this has to be the biggest surprise of the year for me. Having sorta given up on Junkie after being disappointed by his output in the past few years I never expected him to write a fantasy score on this level (while still keeping one foot in his comfort zone of course). Hopefully more producers actually demand quality music from him, as opposed to the shit we got from<br>Tomb Raider and Deadpool.Great work. <br><br>I love Tom's aggressive and extreme way of mixing and bold use of percussion.<br><br>Glad to see him linked to Alita: Battle Angel tooI imagine iTunes and Spotify by Friday. The people commenting on it have likely heard a leaked version.

MOVIESCORE MEDIA/KRONOS RECORDS RELEASES TWO SCORES BY 'MORTAL INSTRUMENTS' COMPOSER ATLI ÖRVARSSON


MovieScore Media/Kronos Records will release two new CDs featuring new film scores by composer Atli Örvarsson whose other current films include The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, based on the bestselling books by Cassandra Clare, and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

MovieScore Media/Kronos Records' first release with the composer will be David M. Rosenthal’s A Single Shot (2013), which opens theatrically in the USA on September 20, 2013, distributed by Well Go. The film stars Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy and Ted Levine. Based on the novel by Matthew F. Jones, A Single Shot tells the story of John Moss (Rockwell), a hunter whose life goes to hell after killing a girl during a hunting accident. Recorded with a chamber group of musicians from the London Metropolitan Orchestra, Örvarsson’s music provides low-key suspense for the deadly game of cat-and-mouse between John Moss and his pursuers. The album will feature a special suite featuring the complex atonal and aleatoric parts of the score entitled "The John Moon Variations".

The second release will be the score to the Czech/Slovakian co-production Colette (2013), Milan Cieslar’s powerful screen adaptation of A Girl from Antwerp, a novel by Pulitzer Prize nominated author Arnošt Lustig. Based on the writer’s own experiences of several escape attempts from the hell of Auschwitz, the film follows the story of Vili, a Holocaust survivor who shares his memories of Colette, a Belgian Jewess who happened to be his first true love. Elegant and tragic like the main character, Örvarsson’s score for Colette highlights the composer’s more lyrical side we rarely get to hear in his more mainstream commissions. Colette opens theatrically in the Czech Republic on September 12, 2013, and is expected to get international distribution later in the year.

Both albums will be released in September 2013. The digital release date for A Single Shot is September 17, 2013, followed by a physical release date of September 24, 2013. The digital release date for Colette is September 10, 2013, followed by a physical release date of October 8, 2013.
