Hello everyone! After watching the film I noticed that about half of music that used in film disappeared at sessions or has different arrangement. Why it's not released? What's the reason for this?As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldnít help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ĎTerence Malick-yí, ďThin Red LineĒ feel throughout.<br><br>Iím definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I canít comment on what he might have written, but Balfeís broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.
I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be funI love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.
Not any more lame than the Balfe cueLorne says it will be released and insists itís not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lol
So is this how itís gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?Thatís literally the best part of the score though. But itís typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)

DARK PHOENIX - RELEASE THE SECOND PART OF THE SCORE - X-PERIMENTS



Hans has prepared and mastered a second soundtrack album called "X-periments" for the movie X-Men - Dark Phoenix.

The original score has been released, but this second part contains his ideas and suites, which we all would love to hear.

We kindly ask You to sign this petition so this material is getting a proper release from Fox music - at least digitally - as Hans worked very hard to put this together.

Thank You !

does anyone have some infos about the release?


Hybrid Soldier2019-07-15 14:08:52
Honestly, Hans is in the middle of big TLK promotion right now, so wait & see...


badbu2019-07-15 14:28:06
thx hybrid. but why hans? isn't it the decision of fox music?


Impatient2019-07-15 17:34:54
Since The Lion King, in my opinion, is 99 per cent the same as the original, I simply can't be that enthusiastic about it. I would have preferred a special 2 CD (physical) edition of Dark Phoenix.


Bob2019-07-16 09:24:43
Fox Music ? Disney you mean... and Disney is busy with TLK so...


badbu2019-07-16 13:21:24
the album was released from fox music


Michael Hayko 2019-08-10 13:43:28
The only thing acceptable would be both parts of this score on at least two discs Set! We should not settle for less, so those of you who are willing to settle or push for a digital release &#129324;&#10071; And where the hell is Hans Zimmer isn't this his site? How come he's leaving us hanging, why doesn't he weigh in and give us an update!


Knight2019-08-10 14:46:51
The fact that the X-periments disc was even released is a small miracle, be satisfied with at least that.


Mike2019-08-10 16:58:08
Wow. The entitlement expressed here is amazing.

I am not very familiar with how complete score or recording sessions leak, but if this fails can't Hans just have it leaked?


George2019-07-11 21:44:40
Iíve thought that as well. However that would take some time, and I think most of us would love the official version


badbu2019-07-12 08:11:45
good question...idk how this works.
But maybe we get a isolated score? like the first class movie ;-)


Edmund Meinerts2019-07-12 11:56:23
That would be pretty risky and could damage his working relationship with Fox...Technically it's their music and not just Hans'. Look at what happened to Gabriel Yared after he leaked his Troy rejected score, he has barely had any assignments since then.


badbu2019-07-12 12:07:41
jep..that's true


Mr.Unbreakable2019-07-12 17:07:54
Hans can do whatever he wants, he's a god in Hollywood


BC2019-07-12 17:10:29
It's possible. A lot of Hans' complete scores have leaked awhile after the original scores came out. Man of Steel, BvS, Pirates 3. It's not uncommon, but sometimes it really takes awhile.

Hybrid Solder, any new news? Closing in on 700 signatures now, so you'd think that the petition would be gaining at least a little attention. I NEEDS THAT SECOND DISK!!!


badbu 2019-07-14 18:19:21
listen to the end credits again and itĎs so so amazing! Love the score so much!


Ahmad2019-07-14 18:43:12
Nothing compares to listening to the end credits suite with IMAX speakers :D


badbu2019-07-14 18:56:37
hahaha :D
Yes! This was amazing too :)


Edmund Meinerts2019-07-15 13:32:22
"Closing in on 700 signatures now, so you'd think that the petition would be gaining at least a little attention."

Hate to break it to you, but that's laughably naive. No executive is going to even notice a petition with 700 sigs, let alone be spurred to action by it.


badbu2019-07-15 13:49:17
that's true...

I think I understand that this 'fox music' does no honor. perhaps he wants to make sense only of the meaning of his name... 'fox'.

Here ! :P


badbu2019-06-30 16:11:22
DONE!!!!!!!!


mpolonest123 2019-06-30 17:36:49
Just signed. Really hoping they can put this out at least digitally.


Curious2019-07-01 08:48:31
Isn't it possible to sell the rights to some special film music label and then we could get a proper 2 CD release? I don't get Fox.


badbu2019-07-01 13:13:44
how many signs we need? ... mhh :D
it's a shame from fox...it costs nearly nothing to release music digitally...


Nicklas2019-07-01 13:43:53
Done!!! Signed!
At least Fox could release it digitally. Hans has one of the biggest fan numbers out there. Impatiently waiting for this release!!!


isildur2019-07-01 15:33:23
Done.


Petition2019-07-02 23:54:13
400 Sigs Now!!!

Any idea if this has been passed along to the people at Fox? Surely they must know...


badbu2019-07-03 08:50:28
i think we need 6000 or more...good by second cd...


Hybrid Soldier2019-07-03 08:58:36
Not necessarly.


badbu 2019-07-03 09:23:26
i hope so...


badbu 2019-07-07 09:52:03
only 550...damn...


Hybrid Soldier2019-07-07 11:03:15
Don't worry, should have some news in the next few days...


badbu2019-07-07 13:06:19
sounds good :)


mpolonest123 2019-07-07 19:58:25
@Hybrid
Thatís good to hear, I was starting to lose hope. I have a feeling all of the really interesting material will be in suites.


badbu2019-07-11 17:19:16
