    The first Transformers score is excellent. Movie is great fun too, when the people stop talking and the action takes over.

    I enjoyed the first Transformers film in particular when it came out. It went downhill from there pretty quickly. I even played the 2007 video game quite a bit as well.
     
     
    Most of those RCP guys are programmers, so they often times create their own samples. I'm sure they probably use programs like Omnisphere as well.

    Do you mean cornet?
    The difference is actually not very big. A cornet is conical, meaning it starts getting bigger gradually until it reaches the bell. A trumpet is cylindrical, meaning the tube stays the exact same size until it opens up close to the bell. The trumpets they use in Vienna are completely different. Their valves are closer to those of a french horn. Both the cornet and  the rotary valve trumpet sound darker than a regular trumpet.

    Unfortunately, our crazed Mayor has shut down all the branches !
    She's acting like reopening would be akin to restarting CHERNOBYL and books are dangerous as plutonium!😵
    Yavar, I definitely can hear Goldsmiths influence on BG.
    His frequent use of echoplex , for example

    Except for DUEL, these are ' homemade ' cdrs featuring multiple scores.

    I like a few of their songs but was never a fan either. Too close to Blues and Hard Rock, I guess.

    bruce marshall reacted to blondheim in What Is The Last Score You Listened To? (older scores)   
    Do not get me wrong, I want both. But like a classical symphony with 18 interpretations, I would love that for scores. Get creative, be liberal with the tempo, rubato, etc. Give me Bernstein's Star Wars, Klemperer's Indiana Jones, Boulez's A.I.

    A bit too choral for me, and I'm not a fan of the middle age music style either. Sorry!

    bruce marshall reacted to Thor in John Williams' April 1980 debut Boston Pops performance (2020 HD broadcast)   
    Myth. There's the true story about the rehearsal of "America, The Dream Goes On" a couple of years into his tenture, where Williams stormed off because of the unruly orchestra members (apparently a consequence of the more informal/lacking discipline of the Arthur Fiedler era), but I've never heard anything about the Pops being unhappy with his hiring and/or programming of his music. Quite the contrary.
     
    By the way, great to finally see this, his first "Evening at Pops". Love the REIVERS suite (I've only ever heard it before, never SEEN it performed live), in particular. Just points out, once again, that a boxed set of all these programs, especially the Williams-conducted ones, needs to be released!

    One of the best, most innovative, and underrated Hollywood composers ever.
    I loved him so much I wrote an article about COLUMBO just so I could praise the amazing RANSOM FOR A DEAD MAN score.
    Maybe, like Shirley Walker, he will get his due in the aftermath.

    Anything but Joker. It was fine, but not best score in 12 months. Rise of Skywalker here.

    Voted for A Hidden Life, by my boi JNH. Sorry, TROS fans  .
     
    In any case, Joker will end up as the winner, no doubts. Even the normies are liking Hildur's score. My brother for example isn't a film music nerd like myself, and told me he liked the music on Joker when he watched the movie.

    bruce marshall reacted to NL197 in The Official James Horner Thread   
    Wow, that publicist really loves to lay on the disdain. He’s the JWFan equivalent to FSM’s late RM Eastman with the levels of arrogance and insults flying at everyone who isn’t him. He’s on ignore because I find that kind of thing he does just lame and tiresome. I’d rather focus on positives than pointless criticism. Whatever his axe is that he feels needs grinding, it’s likely a polished stump at this point. 
     
    Also the only music in JADE that wasn’t used much was the Chinese source music. Most of the score itself was used. Edited as most scores are, but used in the film.
