Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Recommended Posts

Yay! Thanks to a very kind JWFan member, I was able to get pages 45-47 from the book, which contained the cue list I was talking about. Sadly, the cue list begins on page 44, but I should be getting that page soon too :)

Anyways, enjoy!

EDIT: Got page 44 now too!

I think when it says "OMIT", they INTENDED to write a new cue, but ran out of time, and ending up going with tracked music

TRACK I think is when they decided early to track from SS

Wrobel's Rundown only mentions a sketch existing for 2m9 Howler Delivery for Ron - it might have NEVER been fully orchestrated and recorded, since that cue isn't in the sheet music leak or the recording sessions youtube video. Since the book says "TRACK" for that cue, I guess they abandoned the sketch and just used tracked music for the scene

The recording sessions leak appears to be missing 1m9 Insert Errol Delivers Mail, the 2m2 Insert, 2m8A Mail Delivery Insert, 2m9 Howler Letter For Ron, 5m1 Harry Is A Parelmouth, 5m2 Harry On The Mountain, 6m5 Ransacked Dormitory, 7m4 Insert, 8m2A Insert The Chamber Door Opens, and End Credits Part 1.

Of course, maybe that means some (or all?) of those were never recorded?

I finished the comparison spreadsheet as well:

Isn't Errol Delivers Mail heard in the film?

Yes. But it could be tracked. There's a similar passage earlier in the movie. Or vice versa. Howler Delivery = Errol Delivers Mail with a bit of Don't Burn My Letter in a strange edit. Don't remember well enough.

I think the cue list from the book relates to the final cut of the film, which is why a lot of the cue timings are shorter, and anytime it says TRACKED there are when tracked music was used in the final cut. But it neglects the string overlay written for The Chamber Door Opens

I think the times on the showoff video are longer because of extra silence at the end of every track

I'm sure that's it. The length of a cue that's listed in documents related to the composing and recording process is just the length of time from the first note to the last, I believe. But sound files always have some silence at the beginning and (especially) at the end. This can easily lengthen the time by five or six seconds at least.

in 1m9, there is 15 seconds more in the showoff sessions than the cuelist 'on the track'

The former can include the insert and still have 10 seconds of silence.

I don't know enough about this score to truly answer this on my own so I thought I'd ask.

Viewing the Cue summary sheet, I notice there was a cue called "Hospital Wing" and it says "OMIT" next to it which should imply it wasn't recorded. Not knowing the score better than I do, I can't identify this, but in the deleted scenes, that exact scene has music that does not sound edited and sounds...pretty spot on with the emotion from the scene...

You can view it here at 4:07

Bill Wrobel about the Chamber of Secrets Academy Promo:

...complete (or near-complete) audio tracks were not made available (except for some rare

For-Your-Consideration Academy copies that also occurred with A.I.)

Either Wrobel was mis-informed (likely), or a promo with music not heard on the OST does exist but has NEVER turned up on ebay or ANYWHERE else (extremely unlikely). Either way, this is very old news :P

I don't understand why you're so confused. An Academy Promo for HPCOS containing music that wasn't on the OST has never turned up on ebay or leaked to the internet. Unless you know something we don't.

Sounds like you got ripped off. If a true academy promo was pressed, it will likely match the OST, like the HPSS academy promo.

But I don't think the score to HPCOS was even submitted to the academy for consideration that year. As Mark mentioned the academy that year had a stupid rule in effect about sequel scores, which made AOTC and The Two Towers ineligible as well
