  1. Plan 9 could set the Elven barrel song lyrics to earthy pub corner folk ensemble tune. And Neil Finn could return for another end credits song with this hit! Roll--roll--roll--roll, roll-roll-rolling down the hole! Heave ho! Splash plump! Down they go, down they bump! Down the swift dark stream you go Back to lands you once did know! Leave the halls and caverns deep, Leave the northern mountains steep, Where the forest wide and dim Stoops in shadow grey and grim! Float beyond the world of trees Out into the whispering breeze, Past the rushes, past the reeds, Past the marsh's waving weeds, Through the mist that riseth white Up from mere and pool at night! Follow, follow stars that leap Up the heavens cold and steep; Turn when dawn comes over land, Over rapid, over sand, South away! and South away! Seek the sunlight and the day, Back to pasture, back to mead, Where the kine and oxen feed! Back to gardens on the hills Where the berry swells and fills Under sunlight, under day! South away! and South away! Down the swift dark stream you go Back to lands you once did know!

  3. Alternatively, Hans Zimmer could write a kickass D minor ostinato with some wailing woman.

  5. "So, in essence, you have all those notes in Middle-Earth, which complicate everything. Complicated doesn't reach the heart, forget the notes."

  6. "At first, I was completely blocked in my head, thinking 'oh my god, this is Middle Earth, this is the most iconic music ever'. Then luckily, you have these one of a kind filmmakers, like Peter Jackson who took that weight off my shoulders and said 'It's just another movie Hans, get real!' So I thought, what did Shore do? A couple of nice tunes, lots of chorus, very objective things. So, if I take away some of that, by that alone I will be different. And in a funny way, it went from being absolutely, completely intimidated by the baggage of the Howard Shore tune to being completely liberated and try out some crazy stuff." "I figured out silence was the way to go, to minimize my involvement and trying to feel the headspace of Bilbo and the dwarves. Empty silence. Notes get in the way, silence lays everything kind of super bare and I was able to get into the psyche of their tortured minds. Also I used foghorn for Smaug, which was a given."

  12. Alright, on the drum topic: I'm a drummer and have been playing for over 2/3's of life. I was actually a bit excited after reading about the pieces on the score and am a big fan of most the drummers that were listed as contributors/players. Jason Bonham, Josh Freese, Danny Carey, Jim Keltner, Matt Chamberlain, Vinnie Colaiuta to name a few. The amount experience and recordings just this small list of drummers I mentioned have is unmeasurable. Now, sonically, yes, you can tell by the way a snare cracks and properly tuned drum sounds that is not a typical "drum circle." BUT, with the amount of talent that was assembled for this, all these drummers were greatly under utilized by some basic patterns that a small group average drummers could have done in half an afternoon. Greatly disappointing and a massive waste of some of the best drumming talent in the industry. On a larger scale, most film composers don't seem to write interesting drum/percussion parts. Most are just some simple half-note/quarter-note pounding. Now composers like Williams (those sections in the Chase through Coruscant are just brilliant), Giacchino and Brian Tyler (he plays the drums...quite well!) know how to keep their percussion sections moving and interesting.

  14. JanBing, I do not know why you have an attitude. I sometimes refer to John Williams as the Maestro because he is a master of music, and I call him that out of respect. He is the greatest composer alive, the most accomplished composer of the 20th / 21st century; I have respect for him not only as a master of music, but as a person. He shows nothing but genuine humility, crediting his success, as well as the many awards and recognitions he has received, to all of the people he has worked with. I admire him greatly for that, as you do not see that too often in this day and age.

  18. Steven Soderbergh's State of Cinema Haven't seen this posted on here. It's a long long read. But really worth it. Addresses a lot of topics we recurrently discuss here. http://www.deadline.com/2013/04/steven-soderbergh-state-of-cinema-address/#utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
