But the elves comment was referring to Prep and Landing. The very tweet in which he mentioned elves already contained the answer

Recording score for Disneys PREP AND LANDING today! Yesterday Cruise, today Elves, tomorrow Mars... http://t.co/gfO28Ah


Yesterday Cruise = Mission Impossible 4
Today elves = Prep and Landing 2
Tomorrow Mars = John Carter

Matt Reeves has been confirmed as the director of new version of The Twilight Zone.

Is it safe to assume Giacchino will be involved too?

Certainly, the great composer of the past were geniuses and used their intellect, but only to serve their emotions and guide their craft. Not to dictate to them what they should or shouldn't write" - Michael Kamen, 1995

Anyone ever see these videos? It's too bad there is SFX in them, but I guess it is the only way to hear the music without some other form of extraction we haven't tried. There are about 13 different videos featuring the music, starting with this one:

Okay, I have never played any of the Medal of Honor games, but I know their scores have been talked about quite a bit around here. I just heard some of the samples on iTunes and am blown away. Which one would you recommend I start with?

The first one! Start with that, its my favourite. Frontline and Underground comes really close. Start with the first, then get 2 and 3!!!

That stuff is Giacchino in his prime, my favourite scores of his.

Like KK said, listen to them chronologically.

Yup. It gives a great musical progression. You can hear the evolution of Giacchino's sound and style in these scores which of course in part reflects how the games themselves developed in style and mood. The two early scores MOH and MOH Underground have undeniably a brighter sound of adventure movies of old. Frontline adds a brilliant dramatic dimension with extensive choral and soloist writing but retains the entertaining spirit of the predecessors in the action music and Airborne is perhaps the grittiest and most rhythmically oriented of the scores. Allied Assault which came before Frontline (only 15 min. of new music) is close to the sound of the two first scores.

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-

That would be a great favour for us... :(

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.

Some cool stuff here, JW is mentioned too:

Q. You seem like the natural successor to John Williams. What film composer(s) do you admire the best?
A. That's very kind of you - of course, I love John Williams and hope both he and his music lives forever. I think I would be happy if I could sound like Michael Giacchino and people liked that sound, which is obviously influenced by so many great composers.

I spotted Mr. Giacchino while I was at work yesterday. The timing and whatnot seemed right, so I offered some quick, polite thanks for all he's done in the world of film music. He was very gracious and personable ("Thanks, man!") and we had a neat little conversation for maybe half a minute. Very cool guy. Always nice to meet someone whose work you respect and find that they're easy to respect as a human being, too. :)
