  1. Score released November 4th by Watertower. Apparently we're getting a Vinyl edition too. They must be excited by the score if they're putting money into a Vinyl release.
  2. Sadly the newly unearthed end credits is from a terrible tape dub but is an 80's heroic gem if there ever was one.
  3. By Gia. I think Silverstri's was better.

Release (Thomas Newman) Love the first score as well as Wall*E, so looking forward to this! ETA: Went browsing around Andrew Stanton's Twitter... From a question about reuse of old themes: Presumably from a question about temp tracks....wonder if we'll be able to spot that
  5. Announced via his twitter I would have thought Christopher Young would have gotten the gig, but this could be a fun score for him after Zootopia and Star Trek Beyond.
  6. Anything about this yet? Besides the video of him conducting
  7.

  8. Dreamworks issued a press release today indicating Thomas Newman will score Bridge of Spies. The press release simultaneously confirms that Williams will score Spielberg's The BFG.
  9. Trailer is out for this new James Horner scored IMAX documentary
  10. Michael Giacchino Is Hard At Work On The 'Inside Out' Recording Sessions
  11. I'm at work and can't listen - any Giacchino music in this? This is one of four Giacchino scores in 2015, along with Jupiter Ascending, Jurassic World, and Inside Out
  12. Well we know for sure that it's being recorded in New Zealand again. On August 9th, Conrad Pope checked in on Facebook "Waiting to board. Next stop breezy, lovely Wellington" (link). On August 13th, he checked in at the Museum Art Hotel in Wellington, NZ, saying "Working and working and .....working" (link). And earlier today, JoAnne Kane Music Service posted "Air New Zealand to Auckland. Middle earth here we come!" (link). I haven't found anything on Doug's twitter feed about him being in either NZ or NY, though. ANYWAY, I hope everyone is excited for this score as much as I am! It will be the culmination of not only The Hobbit's story, but the entire LOTR/TH series as a whole. I expect we'll hear definitive versions of themes such as Smaug, Erebor, Thorin, House Of Durin, The Arkenstone, Tauriel, Tauriel/Kili, Girion and Lake-town. There will probably be a bunch of new themes, though I except less new themes than either of the prior scores introduced, and less than ROTJ introduced. The only major new character not yet introduced is Dain Ironfoot, and it's possible his thematic material was already introduced in AUJ (heard in the tracks "An Unexpected Party" [3:43] and "The Dwarf Lords". Beyond that, there could be a theme for The White Council (when Gandalf, Saruman, Galadriel, Elrond, and Radagast fight Sauron in Dol Guldur). There could be a new theme, or new variation on existing Sauron material for Azog and Bolg's orc and warg army. There could be a new theme for the eagles, maybe one for the Lake-town men in battle. There could be some kind of overacting theme for the Battle of Five Armies itself too. I think it's very likely we'll finally get to hear the full Beorn theme that was only hinted at in DOS too (the recent published sheet music show how it continues from what's used in the score to a cool ending reminiscent of Nature's Reclamation) I think the big question is which of the great themes introduced in AUJ that were completely dropped in DOS will return in BOFA? One of the coolest and most radically different from the sound of LOTR themes in AUJ was Radagast's Theme, which was completely absent from DOS despite his character returning. Will we hear it in BOFA? Bilbo had 3 major themes in AUJ - his Main Theme aka Baggins/Took Theme, his Adventure Theme, and his Fussy theme. Only the latter two returned, and only in small cameos. Will he hear the definite conclusion of his main theme? Shore wrote a great theme for Thorin's Company for the first film that was mostly replaced by Misty Mountains. Will either return in Part 3? What else can we expect from BOFA? What scenes from the book are people most looking forward to hearing the score for?
  14. Who else is excited for this score? Here's a clip of the movie with Powell's new score in it EDIT: The music is not from the new score, it's tracked in from the first.
  15. It is being released on Tuesday, April 8th at 12 NOON PST. Our very own Olivier Soudé (EhTar) has just published this great article including entries from Dan Goldwasser about the creation of the final product (Scroll past all the French to get to the English)

  18. OK, as promised, here it is: the first video with unused music. Here, I took My Dear Frodo album version and tried to sync it with the prologue sequence. Of course, I had to do some video editing, because the track seems to be edited (and if it's not, well, it was meant to score a different edit of the prologue). Anyway, I tried my best to make the video sync with the music. It doesn't always work well, but from 4:56 to the end, it just fits perfectly. Hope you enjoy! My Dear Frodo More coming soon...

  19. It is half a year away, Howard Shore's fifth entry in the world of Middle Earth. I figured this news finally warrants to start a discussion about the upcoming score. From Conrad Pope's Facebook page: Also, a man named Clifford J. Tasner is probably also on board:
  20. Thomas Newman has been confirmed to be scoring Pixar's 2014 movie "The Good Dinosaur", as confirmed by Film Music Reporter, which I am about to quote. But pay attention to the part I bolded What the heck is the other major film he is scoring this year?
  21. YES!!!
  22. I'm sure many have noticed the structural similarity between the first part of Bilbo's adventure and the first part of Frodo's. But what about the music? For each of the 15 choices, vote for your favorite piece of music from the Peter Jackson movies. Ignore OST vs SE differences for AUJ pieces and OST vs CR vs Rarities differences for LOTR stuff, just vote by whatever your favorite version of each piece of music is. Have fun!
