  1. Hello there everyone! Recently, I’ve been experimenting with mock-ups and I thought this forum/topic would be the most appropriate place to share some of them. Rey's theme: This is probably the most complex piece I’ve tried to recreate, and probably the one to interest you the most, feel free to ask questions about anything. I’m a bit anxious about sharing as I’m just a socially anxious person in general and although there was a time I used to post here, in the past few years I did a Luke and went away, had to deal with a lot of family issues and such, I’m still not likely to be too active, but this is something I worked on to better myself and if even one other person likes it or gets inspired by it I will be happy, even if it's far from perfect. And let me share 2 smaller, more "quick-fire" mock-ups from the end credits suite of The Force Awakens: The Rey-Force theme connection: Kylo's thematic material (this is probably the least accurate to my overly critical ears):
  2. I have finally got around to watch X-Men: Apocalypse and maybe because of the lowered expectations, but I liked it. I was sceptical at first about Sophie Turner’s Jean, but she was fine. Maybe if I start thinking about the plot and stuff I will eventually poke holes in it, but it’s still my initial phase. It was harder for them this time to channel that much nostalgia into the plot after Days of Future Past (the X2 theme is a huge help, that's what sold me the X-Men franchise back in 2003), and partly because of that the villain really seemed like a boring evil dude we’ve seen a thousand times before just on a bigger scale, but at least we had some nice character building moments, like Quciksilver’s arc, or Charles’s journey. I wasn’t a fan of the comics growing up, so I’m not upset about some of the changes, like Raven’s transformation to an A-list X-Men hero, I found it a natural progression for this particular incarnation of the character. Quicksilver’s big scene was the highpoint for me, that’s what I love about special and visual effects, we can now have scenes like this, another example for me why CG doesn’t necessarily have to suck (and the 80s music helps too )
  3. Love reading the different reactions, how it stirred a vast array of emotions. For me it was totally unexpected, I don't want to spoil the film, so I barely listen to any news about it. One side of me is disappointed of course, the other likes Giacchino, so I don't know what to feel I've liked him since his Video Game days, like The Lost World, Medal of Honor, I did not thought that he could have a Hollywood career like this, but I guess he really was and is at the right place at the right time (Alias, Lost with JJ).
  4. A really interesting video about the score (and sound design) of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This kind of Eastern European folk music is really close to me, they're not unfamiliar where I grew up, and it's interestingly combined to make the game's atmosphere really unique and wonderful.
  5. This I can get behind! That’s how I imagine it too, and I think the theme in general can be used as a new Jedi-specific theme, it has that mysterious, larger-than-life quality for me, but my secret wish is that Luke didn’t become an irreversibly bittered old hermit and we’ll hear glimpses of his innocent theme clearly representing him for some nice moments, not just for random nostalgic/hopeful Star Wars-y scenes like in EPVII
  6. Cool, nice examples, this old movie is something I've only heard about now, I'll definitely check it out for the music if nothing else. The Indy films in general are loaded with musical comedy, they are really asking for it, this is my personal favourite, this scene was also one of my biggest laughs as a child.
  7. Interesting thread, love the examples! General Grievous from RotS is what came to my mind the first time I read the title. I just love the raw power and rhythmic nature of this cue, it's nothing he's ever done for Star Wars before and since. (Zam would have been my number 2 choice, it's a shame both are heavily edited or differently arranged in the movies themselves)
  8. When I thought I've seen/heard it all.
  9. Awww, so nice They had a bold idea, they went through with it and they've got an experience for a lifetime. This is truly inspiring, he is such a nice, nice man.
  10. I personally like Desplat very much, loved his HP scores, for me it managed to capture the spirit of the Harry Potter universe but with his distinctive style and I think this is the way to go with Rogue One. I just hope that the quoted SW themes will not be directly lifted but referenced properly in his own way. Other than that, I’m fine with him, and I’m looking forward to it, the movie sounds like a Star Warsified heist movie rather than a “gritty war movie”, but at this point I don’t think we know the overall mood of the movie just yet, and how the reshoots will change that, and the music. The movie itself is a big question mark, it certainly is a challenge for any composer, but I have faith in him. A Danny Elfman SW score? Sign me up
  11. Thank you very much, I aprreciate it! Shantae sounds lovely. I adore the music from those 8bit/16bit eras, so that's a plus.
  12. I agree, this is really cool. It reminds me of the old RPG Maker games from my teens. I used to play those, there were some really talented Hungarian developers, they made some really great free-to-play 2D JRPGs in the early 2000s, and I think they had used these kinds of tracks for their games (FInal Fantasy tracks, Megaman, Castlevania, etc.),this sounds familiar to them in style, I like it. Nice music Can you recommend more from him, where should I start?
  13. - Home Alone during the Holidays - The Olympic Spirit just before playing football - Harry Potter while reading the books - Almost constant whistling (which can be quite annoying for others ) based upon mood, company, etc., mostly Williams, and nearly 100% movie scores. - Watching sport highlights or tributes on Youtube muted replacing it with Williams music
  14. While I was away on a holiday, I managed to get a glimpse of a beloved cartoon from my childhood, Talespin, on a random background TV, and I almost instantly had the most intense nostalgia trip. I had forgotten how much I loved it and how good its music was for a 90s cartoon TV show. I don’t know if it was successful elsewhere, but in Hungary it was the shit growing up Oh, I miss the 90s… So now I’m on a walk down memory lane, fortunately I found some of the music on Youtube, that’s what I’ve been listening lately apart from of course the BFG
