  1. I seem tobe returning to Galaxy's Edge a lot! So much fun. And definitely a big step up from "your average Williams imitator". Wished the TRoS story would've given an excuse to work it into the music there. And same for Han's theme. Would be so nice for those to get a bit more coverage; so they can feel more connected to the rest of that world...
  2. Been listening to this on Spotify while working today. One track really stood out (could be that one?); but it reminded me of Independence Day instead... Specifically, "The Darkest Day".
  3. Wow; hadn't seen that yet! Beautifully done. You really put your heart and soul into this work; I can tell. The only extra thing then you might consider is some sort of explanation of what you changed in the "album assembly" compared to the complete score. I reckon that'd be quite fascinating to read too. You're quite welcome. It's not like you don't deserve it. Really wished one day this music could be performed by a proper, full orchestra; and really do it justice.
  4. I'm sorry I'm completely behind on listening to your work. I see you finished GoF (CONGRATULATIONS!!!) and are onto OotP now. Awesome!! Looking at your website, one thing I'd be interested in is a write-up to go with your GoF album assembly. Similar to the ones for your individual tracks. I'm always interested to read the creative background of artistic work like yours. Also, you might be interested to have a look at the comments here on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FQcuENRhJw&lc=UgykhgemoECoEO5VEn54AaABAg I've been kind-of advertising you there.
  5. Can't it be about both? Not like there's any news on the film front right now. https://www-techradar-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.techradar.com/amp/news/these-belong-in-a-museum-the-best-indiana-jones-games-oh-and-tomb-raider-2-too?amp_js_v=a6&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQFKAGwASA%3D#aoh=16108444133708&csi=0&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.techradar.com%2Fnews%2Fthese-belong-in-a-museum-the-best-indiana-jones-games-oh-and-tomb-raider-2-too
  6. Going to join this now as "AdventureSailor".
  7. For anyone interested, these are all the original Indy game scores that I know of: Clint Bajakian, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis Re-Recorded MIDI, The London Sessions by Rich Douglas; 30 minutes Clint Bajakian, Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine MIDI-based; 16 minutes Clint Bajakian, Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb Largely orchestral fan soundtrack album; 2 hours Gordy Haab & Ray Harman, Indiana Jones and the Staff of the Kings Orchestral; 32 minutes
  8. Did anyone ever figure out tracknames for some of the unique promo tracks? I'm thinking especially of these ones from Firestorm: 2M2 4M3 5M1 And these from Mad Idolatry: 1M2 4M2
  9. I have some sort of fan-made soundtrack album. Might be a bit too long to count asas 'best of' playlist though. Was actually listening to it yesterday. I like rather a lot of it. Mei Ying's theme is quite beautiful. The Nazi ones are properly menacing (in campy Indy fashion). There are some exotic touches for the Middle-East and Asian sections of the game. And I reckon basically all of the action tracks are quite a lot of fun. Is a version with only a handful of tracks? That's the one I have on my computer. I wonder if there's more available though by now. I imagine you could aim a point-and-click adventure at mobile audiences. In this day and age it'd be a bit weird for PC or console or something. But a phone could run it; and it could become one of the best puzzle games out there.
  10. Have to say, I agree. The music to Emperor's Tomb is REALLY good. And makes nice use of the Raiders March in new ways too. Beats anything I've heard from Haab so far. So if anyone has any recommendations on his best few tracks, please do say. Does Clint Bajakian still write music? I'd completely support his return. Alternatively, what has Mark Griskey been up to lately? His two Force Unleashed scores are some of the better Star Wars music outside the films too. With nice inventive uses of the Imperial March and Force themes. Otherwise, just get Nami Melumad on the job. I reckon her Medal of Honor makes for a pretty darn good showcase of how it should be done.
  11. Yes. By keeping them in Star Wars, for example. Also, potential right here for the best game EVER: Gordy Haab for the music again, I suppose? Hope he gets to use more of the themes this time...
  12. Back to where it all started, eh? They can excavate the spot where the UFO took off.
  13. Something fun could be made around that, I'm sure! Except for one tiny thing... I've been there. SO many times. Survived just fine. Along with thousands upon thousands of others. The Florida Straits are in it. Pretty heavily trafficked part of the world. And Puerto Rico too.
  14. Had an idea for an Indy V concept story the other day. A lady adventurer very, VERY similar to Indy has been after a McGuffin all her life. She's about the same age as Indy and he gets drawn in by her. He ends up liking her a lot and regrets they never met before as her love for adventure might've been the perfect match for him. As the story progresses, his character development is to realise that he loves his wife Marion more than he loves adventure. He decides to 'let go' and live out his life in peace. Our lady adventurer keeps going though; and she may or may not perish at the end. In fact, the film can be ended BEFORE she completes her quest, leaving her ultimate fate shrouded in mystery. After all, she was never the main character; Indy was. And with his character development ultimately complete, his story is over. Aside from allowing a worthy ending for our favourite hero, it also opens the door for a soft reboot. The sixth film in the franchise can return back in time, following the lady adventurer back in her prime. This way, future films can maintain the time setting of the 20s, 30s and 40s. They'd also be related to what came before, potentially allowing tie-ins with the original trilogy here and there as well; from a different point of view. Seems to me a good way of reinvigorating the franchise, while giving Professor Jones an age-appropriate send-off as well.
