Not Mr. Big reacted to GerateWohl in Who is able to compose music for Avatar 2
Yes. I think, with Avatar Horner didn't set the bar very high.
Joel McNeely, James Newton Howard, Alan Silvestri, Harry Gregson-Williams, John Debney, Christophe Beck, Patrick Doyle, Chris Young and many others. They all could do it , I believe.
If you would ask me for a wish candidate. I would like to have scores from Howard Shore for the sequels.
Not Mr. Big reacted to Thor in Who is able to compose music for Avatar 2
Wow. I consider it a top 3 Horner. I also consider the film the very best that year, and already a reference point in terms of how we experience cinema. So the bar couldn't possibly be any higher for any composer.
As I said, I don't like the fact that Franglen is attached to this at all. His stuff sounds like Horner with all the soul ripped out of it - whether it's MAG 7, the Avatar theme park stuff, VOYAGE OF TIME and whatnot. But God knows he's worked with a lot of great composers, and a lot of great scores over the years (as programmer, performer etc.). So I hope he's picked up some useful tricks. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

Horner's Avatar is great and I think the only one who could have beaten this would be Williams. It would have been a premier for him to score a sequel, it could have resulted in an interesting compositions, quite unique.
My second choice would have been Silvestri, McNeely or even Gia who no matter what would have bring the attended colour and sound to this sequel
Anyway we'll see how it will end...

Utilised Spotify to catch up on all JW OSTs it has that I haven't heard yet.
Cinderella Liberty - Groovy enough, good enough theme (that I expected to go into the Sugarland theme when on harmonica), not a fan of the vocal performances. Not bad but didn't feel it had much substance.
Jaws 2 - already heard the expansion but the thread has traffic, why not. Still don't like it, feels like JW just knocking himself off, all those kinda interesting moments interrupted with a blurting unsubtle loud DUNDUNDUNDUN Shark A without any finesse or interesting embellishments, none of the buildup of the first... not for me.
Heartbeeps - I was shocked to like this as much as I did. Even bought it on presto afterwards. Cheesy but cute and very very JW-ey once you adjust to the synth's prominence. Only somewhat lost me in the second half in the stretch where the two main themes are mostly abandoned.
The Witches of Eastwick - Liked this one too. Good varied string use, overall pretty Elfmany - even if the Elfmanyness we know mostly came after this one!
The Accidental Tourist - Liked this one too! Alwaysy but less sugary and with even less of a thematic/narrative arc, but it did manage to keep my attention and I liked its sound.
Stepmom - This one on the other hand did not manage to keep my attention.

Not Mr. Big reacted to King Mark in Rise of Skywalker suite with Detroit Symphony Orchestra
hey how did this slip under our radar. I really wan to hear this
I really hope he re-worked The Rise of Skywalker, not because the OST version isn't great, but I would like to hear any modified/re-worked version since it's such a great track. On the OST there's minor differences between the track proper and the passages in the End Credits which I slightly prefer.
Not Mr. Big reacted to TownerFan in Rise of Skywalker suite with Detroit Symphony Orchestra
My guess is that the Detroit Symphony was granted a license from JW and Hal Leonard to perform the suite before the actual publishing. From what it looks, it’s very likely it’s going to be available very soon.
I personally consider TROS a masterpiece and I’m so happy JW prepared a full concert suite. I can’t wait to see and hear what extensions he wrote for these pieces.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Mutter arrangements have some kind of exclusive agreement for ASM, at least for a window period, hence why they’re not available for rental or purchase at the moment.
