The temp track or similarities thread

Recommended Posts

I lack the musical knowledge to really explain this, but Elfman and Shore just seem to favour similar progressions. Parts of Silence of the Lambs are very similar to Batman, while the quieter parts of Oz sound like the Shire parts of Lord of the Rings. It's probably why Shore scoring Ed Wood doesn't seem as odd in context as it might have done, or how Elfman channelling Shore in Red Dragon just sounds like Elfman. I don't think they're ever copying each other.

With my previous post (Shore elfman) and the one before it (Hooper/muse), I think it's just unintentional similarities hence why I changed the title of this thread to better reflect that :)Nonetheless, both examples a quite striking at how similar they sound :)

Indeed. I doubt The Hobbit was temped with anything other than The Lord of the Rings.

 

At most, some other works of Shore may have been used.

From an IMAX film - I'll eat my hat if that wasn't temped with Dante's Peak. Not only the main theme but the whole cue structure from this point:

 

 


I just clicked play at the same time on both videos and it allmost sounds like one piece indeed !

Listening to Marvel's Daredevil Season 3 soundtrack after watching the series and came across this little piece. It was either inspired by Remembering Petticoat Lane from Jurassic Park, or perhaps an homage to Williams...

 

 

Partway through the track, Paesano introduces a small choir that also reminds me of another cue from Jurassic Park - Hatching Baby Raptor.

 

Can anyone else hear the similarities?

The above piece has a reoccuring section (it first appears at 0:07) with an uncannily similarity to two separate Mario Nascimbene film compositions:

This isn't so much a similarity as a direct interpolation of the material, but I was listening to Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream last week and it was absolutely killing me thinking of what movie "Dance of Clowns" made me think of.  I finally thought of it today: it was used in The Santa Clause (not credited in the film credits though).  I'm guessing this was a result of temp love.

 

 

 

Here's the music in context

That’s a good catch! I imagine if the music producer of the Santa clause ever saw this post, he/she’d be exasperated that they found the one guy on the interwebs who called them out on their oversight.
