  1. Regarding Voyeur, Schyman has a suite (with sheet music!) on youtube: The description sheds some light on the circumstances of its creation, so I guess the questions are "do interactive movies count as a games?" (whole other can of worms) and whether the ensemble size matters...
  2. That would be Garry Schyman's Voyeur for the CD-i from 1993, which according to the composer was recorded with a small orchestra.
  3. This might be comparison bias with the episode as aired, but I thought the concept stated at its beginning - that the drug would totally flash the user - was played much too subtle, so this was actually much more in keeping with the supposed premise.
  4. I like it - it brilliantly plays with the concept of genre perception distortion and IMHO takes the weakness of the scene (as elaborated above: too little genuine tension for a supposedly dramatic chase) and full-on acknowledges it by turning it into "it's like a game". The mix between the chiptune/rock/orchestra hybrid elements sounds very well done, too.
  5. I've only really dug into The Towering Inferno yet, but that alone already made the set worthwhile for me - the main title is an all-time classic (which I previously only knew from that old RealAudio sample page...), comparing the vastly different score/OST mixes is really ear-opening, and although my attention tends to wander off a bit during some of the more low-key cues of the score, there are a lot of outstanding highlights. Earthquake seems a good candidate for listening when in a mood for fun, quirky music. Poseidon seems to be the most challenging score of these to really get into. But I'm glad to have them all at my disposal for when curiosity strikes
  6. That was an interesting conversation to watch, thanks for doing it! Sadly there were a few audio dropouts in the recording...
  7. What Jay is probably thinking of is the moment in Ark Trek, where the second half of the medallion theme does appear as the b section of the Ark theme, creating a single moment of unity of the two themes. Following your interpretation, this could be seen as the point in the story where the raw power of the Ark and the corrupt ambition to use it finally come together?
  8. Why not both? I'd hope they make more if this sells well.
  9. Here's also a small look behind the scenes: This album is a great listen! Materia Collective is putting out awesome VGM arrangements time and again (like the fully orchestral "Hero of Time" OoT concept album a few years back).
  10. They have a high bar to match for sure, but with Druckmann being involved and after seeing what Mazin achieved with Chernobyl, they might just be able to.
  11. Unexpected! This used to be one of my favorite Williams scores back in the day, but I never felt that anything essential was missing from the OST... looking forward to the samples!
  12. That is actually a rare case that I don't mind so much, because the cue was dialled out of the original arena scene and so was used for the first time in the temple scene. What's bad about it is the fact it's repeated twice in a very noticeable way...
  13. I'd guess even though he will not get paid a share of the nonexistent sheet music rental or purchase, he gets performance royalties from the usual performance rights organizations?
