This is why you should learn all your news from porn sites. That way Jason can't make you link them. ;)

or sites with non-NSFW illegal material.



well my words is made of fire time to burn

 

 

Among all the things I have done in my short and pitiful life, becoming an inside joke on JWFAN is the one I'm the least proud of.

The additional passage was interesting but not really something I would consider absolutely essential.

Here's some more info on one of the non-Giacchino STID songs
 
http://www.startrek....k-into-darkness

 

~~~

 

 

Woah!  22 minutes of the score is airing on FM Radio this Saturday night!!
 
 

Yesterday I recorded a very enjoyable interview with Michael Giacchino for my WQXR show Movies on the Radio. He has supplied me with about 22 minutes of his "Star Trek Into Darkness" score, and you can hear that music and Michael's insights, anecdotes, and comments regarding it, Saturday, May 4th at 9 pm New York time, on WQXR FM 105.9 and wqxr.org
 
I should probably mention: we had a blast!

It's amazing how much of a difference changing the strings from sustaining one note/chord to rising makes in the Enterprising Young Men Theme.

 

Compare 1:56-2:03 of Enterprising Young Men the track to 0:45-0:53 of the Scotty Clip.

 

The feel completely changes.  The theme feels way more alive.

New clip:

 

 

Does anyone else think that the sound is vaguely reminiscent of Horner's TWOK?

A wee bit, yes. If you can ignore the usual heavy drums.

And where are those songs? Or are they included in these fourty-something minutes? Please not.

The songs are probably source music and will probably be the download tracks.

 

 

Jason posted a few links several posts above that should explain everything or at least make some sense about the songs.

Did no one read the back cover? The starred tracks have the courage theme, and there are three of them, not two. No songs on the CD.

Damn, that is one ugly cover!

Hopefully the eventual deluxe Edition uses better artwork

The original theme performance on the 2009 score only takes up 2:00 minutes so I wonder if this is a new arrangement from Giacchino.

For better reading:

 

1. Logos/Pranking The Natives (3:01)
2. Spock Drops, Kirk Jumps (1:43)
3. Sub Prime Directive* (2:23)
4. London Calling (2:09)
5. Meld-merized (2:40)
6. The Kronos Wartet (5:25)
7. Brigadoom (3:41)
8. Ship To Ship (2:50)
9. Earthbound And Down (2:37)
10. Warp Core Values (2:56)
11. Buying The Space Farm (3:17)
12. The San Fran Hustle (5:00)
13. Kirk Enterprises* (3:00)
14. Star Trek Main Theme* (3:25)


You wouldn't see a subtle plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord, singing "Subtle Plans Are Here Again."

Why does this seem to be a surprise to a lot of people?  Nearly all of the Star Trek film score OST's have nearly been around 45-50 minutes.

Yeah but all Giacchino releases from Varese (except ST) are 70+ discs.

 

Don't know maybe I should just skip this one. The original album for the previous film is virtually obsolete.

Well, the original album for first Star Trek was way too short. I had beginning and end but no middle.

I thought maybe Varese would judge better for this release, and budget for a full CD.

 

Plus we're far from guaranteed a DE, so it would be more comfortable to have a 75 min release, and be missing some highlights, rather than a 45 min release, and be receiving only some highlights.

Exactly.

 

I think it was Giacchino who said, when the last one was released and people were unhappy with its length, that Varese was "well aware of the problem" and was going to fix it, which to me would mean that Varese knew giving such a truncated score was a bad move. You would think that they wouldn't make the same bad move again, but alas...

 

I guess all we can hope for at this point is that they fix the problem again. *fingers crossed*

I was right that the Harrison's Theme concert arrangement will INDEED be played on David's radio show on Saturday!

 

@ Jason LeBlanc, you asked what tracks will be heard on Movies on the Radio when Giacchino presents the premier of his score Saturday night. It's an interesting range of moods, and I think it probably provides a good sense of the score. We feature several pieces listed on the CD -- plus a track Michael considers quite important that, I'm surprised to see, is NOT listed on the CD! That piece is "Ode to Harrison," which, you'll hear Michael explain, is his musical portrait of the character played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Themes he created in that piece recur elsewhere in the score.
 
Included on Movies on the Radio:
Logos/Pranking the Natives
London Calling
The Kronos Wartet
Ode to Harrison
Ship to Ship
Star Trek Main Title Theme
 
Here's the page for the show, which you can "like" and share on Facebook, etc., and where you can leave comments:
 
The show airs May 4th at 9 pm, New York time, on WQXR FM 105.9 and world-wide at wqxr.org
 
As I mentioned before, Michael's a great guest, and shares lots of insight and anecdotes that will be of interest to folks here.

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-
