  1. So, I was just searching some online repertoires and came a across a load of Force Awakens cue titles (in the MACP repertoire)!

  5. Yea, I was there, and it was awkward! They were basically still getting settled after Close Encounters and getting ready to start Call of the Champions when the audio of the CD version BLASTED out of the speakers then was quickly squashed. Then, they were ready and their live performance began. I'm GUESSING they had the audio of that cued up in case there were any technical difficulties with broadcasting the choir, and they could broadcast that instead? It was weird. The video montages that some pieces are synced to wouldn't have audio in them I wouldn't think.

  6. There really isn't much wrong with The Mummy. It sounds hotter than the album, but not problematically so. It's more apparent when you compare the new mix with the album cues, obviously. My biggest annoyance may in fact be that Goldsmith's original Sand Volcano is only present in the album mix, which sounds a bit jarring if you put it at the end of the full score instead of the copy paste credits.

  7. It's not just guesswork. There's a lot you can deduce from the instruments, acoustics, performers and settings of the time old music was written. Before Harnoncourt & Co came along, nobody cared for that, and old music was performed like romantic music, which may at times be interesting (often not), but certainly not authentic. Every young choir director today who's had *some* professional training will give you detailed and well founded instructions on how and why a Purcell piece should be sung differently from an Elgar piece. There's a lot of knowledge about early music that wasn't known

    speaking of, i saw this on a comixology sale this morning, and even though ive owned it for many years, i never “got” the title until today forgive the messy pics. i ended up putting cheese and garlic (not pictured) on my lángos, but my spouse is all about sour cream. took me a little bit to get the frying temp and time straight, so youre seeing a dark/test one and a finished one here the torte was interesting - vanilla and lemon zest in the cake, caramel topping, chocolate icing. please validate me, thx

  10. I bet some people preordered them, and didn't know what they were going to get. I was excited to finally get the ESB OST presentation on CD. Alas! I did pick up ROTS. I bet a lot of people here are listening to them without purchasing, as well - streaming services, less legal methods.

    I have an opinion on this matter. I've never read InfoWars or listen to any of their podcasts, or watched a single one of their videos. I'll assume that Alex Jones is nut job conspiratorialist who engages in "hate speech." But even given that, I'm uncomfortable with his show being "banned". And more importantly, I'm uncomfortable that so many people are so enthusiastic about having large corporations engage in censorship. Rather than simply not listening, these are adults who are begging media companies to protect them (and mostly, others) from speech they don't like. It's path

  19. Score

    The STAR WARS Main Title

    From the point of view of orchestration, the JoAnnKane score should be the original one, as recorded for the film. The published score (Hal Leonard and 20th Century Fox before) is designed for a standard concert orchestra, so the horns were reduced from 6 to 4, the keyboards from 2 to 1, and the harps from 2 to 1. All the rest should be the same.

  20. No joke, Shark, that was one of the main runners up for an Ep7 opening. Though that cue title could be anything.

    Plus, knowing Williams doesn't even generally watch movies and given Carrie's release date of late 1976 and that JW had probably already started composing themes, etc. in anticipation of the March '77 London recording dates, I couldn't possibly see it being a factor at all.

  24. I will certainly buy it. I kind of wish it were remastered, not because I think the OST sounds bad, but just think about a super-remastered Hymn to the Fallen. Now hear all the keys on the woodwind instruments click with spectacular clarity during the woodwind soli, and hear the brass players breathe in unison during the brass soli in a way never heard before! The real reason I will buy it is that I never got around to buying the OST. One day I bought a copy on eBay but when I went to import it, it turned out to be a CD of Christian music but with a Saving Private Ryan

  27. The only Goldsmith score I'd want to add to my library at this point is The Swarm. The rest are either scores I'm not into or scores where the album was fine as is.

  34. It's hard to make out with the rain but I'm pretty certain he said he was already writing music for IX in the vein of Duel of the Fates, with a heavy focus on a new all-chorale theme for Rey.

  39. The only problem I have with film Aragorn+Arwen is when they bring in that Arwen's fate is now tied to the Ring nonsense. Yeah, she will probably die eventually but so will anyone else. it's a weird way of saying she's mortal now and that Evenstar necklace glowy thingy fading... this... whatever that dialogue tried to be was probably not the best way to remind the audience of Aragorn's personal stakes.

  40. Finally had some time to gather my thoughts about this music, which I call a masterpiece of melodic dissonance. In hindsight, I'm amazed by how much free reign Goldenthal was given by the filmmakers. With the exception of maybe CETK and snippets of Images that I've heard, this level of experimentation was rarely heard in Hollywood at the time, and certainly not these days. As often happens when revisiting a great (or long) score, one becomes aware of little themes or motifs that were not noticed before, but were always lurking underneath. Apart from the love theme that I already kn
