    I'm with @Bespin, I'd still keep buying new releases of Krull... the best of Horner's Star Trek scores.

    Damn it, I mocked Bespin in another thread for buying Krull over and over and here I am buying various remastered TWOK.  So I just bought this...again!  Such a wonderful score.  PS, @Bespin, I'm selling my old remastered TWOK for $500.

    Hey Bespin, I have another copy of 2015 Krull since you like buying the same albums but for more money each time.  I'll sell it to you for $500.
  12. Thanks

    Barry was always excellent in his space music and this one is a standout.  This one is also excellent and deep in the midst of the space age!

    I think this is his best score yet!  Very diverse and thrilling score with lots of atmosphere too!  Plus tons of big band, jazzy moments too along with the symphonic score.  Jack Black does a good rock song too.

    karelm got a reaction from Fabulin in What is a guillotine drum which is used in the Star Wars. music score?   
    Yes, absolutely, but it isn't just percussion.  You don't need to go overboard (Mahler where he might say "as a flower hearing what the twilight has to say") but a single word or indication when something specific is desired could help.  I just returned from a chamber performance where the percussionist said they really wanted to understand "emotive" directions because even though the instrument was just a marimba, him understanding descriptively what we were wanting resulted in his choice of mallets and performance interpretation.  So in that example, he would LOVE to see "guillotine" or something and expressly asked for that.  Usually we would describe something emotionally such as "yearning" or "solemn" or something.   We could also provide more musical guidance such as "bell like".  That is more preferred then saying "hard mallet".  So indicating "intense" or marcato would help them decide the hard mallet is what was most appropriate but in some pro levels, they'll have multiple hard mallets and could even have a range of a dozen sets of mallets ranging from very soft to very hard so giving more expressive information helps them know exactly what is desired.
