  1. leeallen01 is a pass around fisting bottom.
  2. Rubbish example. To use a winemaking analogy, Woman Woman is the third pressing of Zimmer's grapes. Acceptable, but far from the real deal.
  3. Is that how you see Pet Sounds, Sgt. Pepper or The Man-Machine? An anonymous product, a lifeless commodity?
  4. He just has.
  5. Zimmer's more of a visionary than Williams, but he lacks his craftsmanship. He's a big picture guy. It's the gestalt that matters most to him, not the finer computational details. Which isn't to say he doesn't obsess over a single synth patch or voicing, but that just serves as a creative inroad--en entry point to explore larger ideas.
  6. That seems to be a uniquely American phenomenon. An inferiority complex stemming from relatively a young cultural tradition and one that is imported almost wholesale from the Old World. The art music of Mitteleuropa sat at the top of America's so called high culture podium for a very long time, and it was only with the vanguard of Koussevitzky, Stokowski, Copland, Bernstein et al. did America begin to break out of that stranglehold through the promotion of new works by homegrown talent. The awful snobbery towards WIlliams from the musical intellgentsia (used very lightly) is very much a remnant of that cultural stranglehold. You're not off the mark.
  7. No there aren't!
  8. I'm sick to death of Nolan and his celluloid Rubik's Cubes, but if nothing else it should yield an interesting Zimmer score.
  9. How would you apply to the second requirement to atonal counterpoint?
  10. Does anyone else hear a similarity?
  11. It's a little generic in spots, but I take that over grating ineptness. .
  12. The music sounds pretty foregrounded in the clip Koray posted.
  13. Who composed that score to that game? It sounds leagues better than what we've heard from the Gia suite.
  14. Really? I thought Hans absolutely nailed the quieter moments.
