    No Country for Old Men, just thinking of relatively recent films, is a far superior piece of work

    I think we can agree on the fact that once Bond songs made trends, now they dangle after them.

    Well, this post made listen to Hubris for the first time. It is a rather good album, isn't it?

    Romão reacted to KK in 92nd Academy Awards (2020 ceremony for 2019 films)   
    I don't know. That sounds pretty reductive. I think it's possible to be both "cutting-edge" and have real structural and musical integrity in the context of a more "ambient" aesthetic. I mean, I agree that it is easy, and probably quite seductive to lean exclusively on the "novelty" of sound and let the film do all the work by means of imbuing said sound with structure and intent. But there are still composers who have been playing with the capacity for sound through real musical structures. And Johannsson was clearly one of them.

    If you want to buy parts, Bricklink is a far better option than Pick a Brick, trust me
     
    Anyway, great stuff, Marian, I'm really happy you shared this

    Romão reacted to Marian Schedenig in Build your own John Williams LEGO BrickHeadz   
    As many here already know, I've created LEGO BrickHeadz versions of John Williams. Here's one of them at Williams's concert at the Musikverein:
     

    (I also photographed it at Tanglewood, but that was before the beard redesign so the model isn't as accurate).
     
    Just in time for his 88th birthday, I've finally completed the instructions and put them online so everyone can build their own:

    Romão reacted to Stefancos in Thank you John Williams!   
    For over 30 years of the 88 that you have been around, I have have been enthralled by your music. I have listened to it for countless hours. I have formed many friendships because of it, and it has impacted my life in ways that are simply undeniable. 
     
    Thank you John Williams
     
    Thank you JWFAN.

    Romão reacted to TheUlyssesian in The Adventures of Tintin - Score Only Scenes   
    JW's score for The Adventures of Tintin is a stone cold masterpiece - an enormously propulsive work with over a dozen themes and motifs that power a very busy, nimble and complex score. I was disappointed to see the ambivalence people seem to have towards JW's Tintin score. That stops now. 
     
    I think the score in the movie is well represented by still somewhat marred by sound effects.
     
    Here is a score only version of a riotous sea battle that Haddock recounts.
     
     
    Watch this to marvel at the intricacy of Williams' composition - individual punches, hits, sword moves, gunshots are synced to the music along with syncing to several cuts. Well, the syncing is done by me but to honor Williams' original intentions. I have taken the OST cue and and fit the picture to it. Only in two places did I microedit the music. Otherwise the music fits the scene remarkably well and you can see the enormous effort Williams has put into the cue for it to be still be entertaining while being so closely matched to the picture.
     
    This also represents some of Williams best action music last decade. It is completely melodic and uses two primary themes - the Unicorn theme representing the ship and Red Rakham's Pirate theme (and no this is not the dueling theme from The Adventures Continues) receive several explosive enormous statements as the furious pirate battle unfolds over the high seas.
     
    I am starting a thread here because I intend to create several videos for the numerous action scenes in the film, each intricately scored by Williams.

    The full version that was shown (and taken down in the meantime), had an extra eye or planet element on the last letter, making the spelling of Dune much more obvious.
