  1. A very happy birthday to both @Gistech and @Mr. Breathmask! Hope you guys both had pleasurable days.
  2. Why not? I'd rather see Williams try to expand the soundscapes of this universe than to limit himself and to continue to operate only within the confines of the musical vernacular established in the past 7 films. For the first time in a long while, the circumstances are right for Williams to have to stray from his norms and to really be challenged, to delve into some strange and different territory. Honestly, the potential for the score to be "weird" is one of my biggest draws towards it at the moment. Edit: What @Stefancos said, albeit much more succinctly.
  3. EW: Blade Runner 2049 comes to life in exclusive new footage
  4. Woah, that is some exciting stuff there. Thanks again for these scoops, Azahid. Really appreciate you sharing these tidbits with us. Makes the intolerable wait for the score almost tolerable.
  5. Nice! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
  6. It's actually just all 8 notes played simultaneously.
  7. If a choir features heavily at some point during the score, don't say anything.
  8. Thanks for the intel, Azzy. Exciting stuff!
  9. The first film kinda subconsciously becomes clumped in with the other ones quality-wise if not viewed in a spell. I had forgotten how great of a film it was, and I'd definitely recommend giving it another watch.
  10. I agree completely. I'd even go so far as to say that Beyond has some of the best pieces of music Giacchino has written. There is an infectious fun and energy to the whole album, and the action music isn't a glaring weakness like it has been on some of his recent works (at least for me).
  11. Hmm, I'll have to think about this for a bit. Figuring them out for Goldsmith will be a bitch because, even if I dislike a score overall from him, there is almost always at least one cue that I really dig.
  12. That's why he likes to wait until after filming has mostly wrapped to start the scoring process. That way all the character names are finalized.
  13. Parenting done right! Sounds like she's daddy's girl. I knew it was a silly question to ask.
