  1. Yes, but be careful. My two cents: the rhythm is a little ambiguous. Ask a bunch of professional musicians to transcribe this and I bet you half of them will get it wrong.
  2. Thanks for clearing that up, @Jay. Guess I should have done some Googling.
  3. That's a good example! I think you're right that the footage was shot specifically for the purpose of the teaser, but it still might be hinting at what's going to happen next. Interesting though how the wanted poster mentions his "Saul Goodman" alias, but not his "Gene Takavic" one. Maybe the teaser simply symbolizes Gene's initial success in eluding the FBI.
  4. That's something I was wondering about but didn't mention. Thanks for confirming that it's been done in the past. Could you give any concrete examples off the top of your head?
  5. To me it seems more like he's taking it off, given the way it's seen swinging without his left arm dragging it along.
  6. I especially love 0:40 - 0:47. It's just typical planing chords stuff, but it gets me everytime. I like how the bass line moves down an octave but lingers on the subtonic first.
  7. https://open.spotify.com/track/6GKhVrsMP4SJYY4SO297Eg?si=ma_Mfyt9Tm2DAIPFGet-jQ&utm_source=native-share-menu 1:06-onward is very chilling. Reminds me of ET.
  8. I'm totally with @Jay and the other 90.57% here. I've been returning to The Hunt/The Round Up a couple of times this week and eventually stumbled upon this thread. What I like most are the killer theme written specifically for this cue alone (reminds me of The Asteroid Field) and the badass rhythmic stuff underpinning it throughout (note the very Goldsmith-y changing meter in particular). Of course, the exotic percussion is a lot of fun. Also very cool are the bridges (not sure if this is acceptable terminology) at 0:11 and 0:58 (I especially love the clusters in the horn section) and the smaller one at 0:43 (there's something in the harmony that always gets me). The militaristic motif at 1:45 is really neat too, it's clearly reminiscent of other militaristic writing by John, but the changing meter freshens it up a little. Time stamps refer to this video. All in all, The Hunt is a heavily rhythm-based cue, but it is held together by the presence of an awesome theme. I'd definitely rank it among John's greatest ever cues for action sequences.
  9. By the way, the Jabba’s palace cue runs from start (13m10s) to finish (15m19s) here, which I guess supports my opinion.
  10. Is this a guess of yours, or is it mentioned somewhere in a film score magazine or liner notes? Definitely sounds like two different cues to me. The instrumentation of the two pieces seems to be a little different, for example. I hear an acoustic drum kit in the one performed at Jabba’s palace, whereas I hear some sort of drum machine in the one performed on the sail barge. Also, the synths used seem to be a little different.
  11. I seem to have the same problem with Will's post at the top of this page. We're both linking to videos uploaded to "Name - Topic" type YT channels, so I suppose local copyright restrictions are involved. My post now links to an unofficial video, hope there are no copyright restrictions this time.
  12. The writing for the horn section is sooo cool here. The strongly dissonant E-F#-G-A-B cluster building up and the flutter-tongueing really help to musically convey the aggression of the wargs on screen.
