  1. Congratulations to Chris for a job very well done, and it was indeed very challenging.
  2. The Batman theme from this score is one of my son's favorite pieces of music.
  3. I did the entire film's audio mix, AND I did separate sequences. I've been doing them for years. I sent you an email with a link to the film with the restored score.
  4. I did the entire film like that. Restored everything.
  5. Not at all, no. I wish Horner scores got that type of info in their booklets like Goldsmith scores did.
  6. Correct. It's a joke title, a riff on "Shrimp on the Barbie" from Paul Hogan in the 90s.
  7. Three of us spent all weekend pouring over it to get it right, and one of our designers made the splash art specifically for the article.
  8. Take out that completely utterly fucking stupid joystick on the bridge and that film isn't that bad.
  9. Yeah they're off the FYC, though if you play them at a loud volume you can still hear the birds. More dialed down very low than completely removed. Westenra's vocals are entirely removed on that FYC though. So basically it's like this: disc 1 1. The New World (OST version) 2. First Landing 3. Nature (Forest Textures on FYC) 4. A Flame Within 5. An Apparition in the Fields... 6. Journey Upriver 7. Of The Forest (Bird Demo on FYC) 8. Pocahontas and Smith (FYC has slightly longer oboe intro) 9. Forbidden Corn 10. A New Life (Rolfe Proposes 1 on FYC) 11
  10. I am the guy who made the combined FYC / OST album. I can't believe that was 8 years ago I did that. I titled that cue "Nature" because I didn't really care for the name "Forest Textures". Same with the cue "A New Life". I don't like the names "Rolfe Proposes 1" and "Rolfe Proposes 2" so I gave the former a new title. Just made sense at the time. Adding in the bird / vocal-less versions of cues as bonus tracks off the FYC seemed like the natural thing to do. Below is the custom back cover I'd done for the back of a theoretical CD years ago.
  11. I think he's pretty spot-on. One cannot compare this to any other film series musically, especially its endurance in the public consciousness. Lord of the Rings / Hobbit for example, six films with one composer but that has not and will never resonate as much as Star Wars. Nothing really ever will, nothing has ever come close.
  12. It was never going to be anyone BUT Franglen and he’s worked with James for years. Titanic first, then from Avatar right up to the end of James’ life.
  13. You and me both...thankfully a friend is gifting me a copy. I couldn't have been able to get it otherwise.
  14. They're tagged with the titles so spoilers beware. Tracklist and times. Painfully short cues here.
  15. I'm insanely excited for this, but I just can't press the order button. I almost did but the situation I'm in is so dire, while it would be nice to spoil a little bit and get this album, I can't justify it when food and everything else is a priority for my son and I. The joys of family crises!
  16. It's obvious to me the bonus tracks after the main score presentation on disc 2 contain many cues from the OST.
  17. I love how they incorporated the original poster into the disc art. "Send in the Probe" is my most wanted addition. Love the light choral moment in the ending where Catherine says to Jackson that the probe is on the other side of the known universe, and the gate closes. Then you've got the very creepy choir of the Ra - The Sun God film version added to this release...marvelous stuff.
  18. I'm going to work to make "Cameronized" a proper term. It went over well with the inner circle of the composer.
  19. I'd pay to see a concert with the score as-written, but that just does not happen and will never happen with any Cameron film. Those films would have to be changed because the music as-written doesn't fit by and large for Titanic and Avatar. Only Aliens would survive intact without having to change the film.
  20. We've not heard a single word about an Avatar concert, and honestly like Aliens and Titanic, it would be yet another "Cameronized" experience that would frustrate anyone who knows the score and how cut up it is. That being said, if such a thing does become a reality, of course we will be obligated to talk about it.
