    Trope reacted to Richard Penna in Howard Shore's THE LORD OF THE RINGS   
    I'm attempting to make 'alternative' OSTs for FotR and RotK to try to address a few issues each has, and I noticed something in Flight to the Ford /Give Up the Halfling and the 'film version' from the rarities.
     
    Hopefully someone who's seen the film and the theatrical/extended versions more than I have can offer some insight.
     
    Both Flight and Halfling have the brass clusters before going into the soloist again, but only the rarities 'film version' has the extra part when Arwen summons the water (I'd only noticed the lower-key crescendo previously). Is that extra bit actually missing from the CR track? It's got the film ending for the soloist so I wonder whether it's either a different version entirely, or if some editing has been done here.

    My favorite synthesized effect Horner used was the 'air' effect, like a faint whistle in a huge amount of his scores, notably in "To Gillian on her 37th Birthday", "Deep Impact", "Braveheart", "The Forgotten" and many, many others.

    Chicken Run 2 would be a perfect opportunity to expand the score for the first movie. Here is an unreleased track:

    I just realized the movie release date is Dec 15, presumably the soundtrack release date is the same.
     
    Then on that day, we will have a battle of the century between HGW’s score and John Powell’s highly anticipated score of Migration (the soundtrack will be released one week before the movie release date on Dec 22)
     
    Funny that apart they used to be partner,
    both soundtrack revolve around poultry! And both will probably be heavily kazoos-induced! 😱🔥🔥

    Sneaky way to inflate the list and make one score look like 3
     
    Edit: oh shit this was a joke but factchecked myself and the 3 of them worked on The Rock

    They're fucking idiots, that's why. They don't even have anything better to do right now with the strikes! Shouldn't they be glad that at least something could be getting released?

    Trope reacted to Thor in The Official James Horner Thread   
    It's a great score. A BEAUTIFUL MIND, as you mention, would fall somewhat in the same category. I think you'll find some of the same elements in many of his other, calmer, more explorative works as well - HOUSE OF CARDS, THE SPITFIRE GRILL, TO GILLIAN ON HER 37TH BIRTHDAY, HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG, THE LIFE BEFORE HER EYES and even my alltime favourite Horner score THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS.

    Disney Music logic: Make physical copies of the score almost impossible to buy, release high resolution digital copies for free.

    I just picked this up. I can’t wait to hear the complete score! I’ve always loved the album presentation. I thought I owned it but I guess it was another one of the CDs that was lost in that move. But it was an important score to me growing up so I’ve gotta have it. I’ve been buying a lot of scores from the labels recently. Very excited for Black Friday this year

    Woah! That's definitely a huge advantage of high-res audio that I've never realized before, even with 48kz audio that would have been completely unapparent. Even if you can't hear the upper frequencies you can still learn things from them!

    So the first cue in New York 1969 ("For Who... Whom?") is indeed pitch-shifted upwards compared to the film version. Look at that frequency line.
     

     
     
    Good catch @LB Makes Stuff, you noticed this yesterday and the spectograms confirmed it.
     
    My hunch is the OST version was pitch-shifted upwards so it crossfaded smoothly into Marion's Theme.

    Trope got a reaction from Van_Etten in Nicholas Hooper’s Harry Potter Scores Are Extremely Underrated. What Happened to Him?   
    I personally have a soft spot for the Hooper scores (equal with Doyle, just below Desplat). I have made a summary list of themes/motifs/ideas I have been able to identity from the OSTs of ORDER OF THE PHOENIX and HALF-BLOOD PRINCE, and feel a complete expansion of both would reveal even more motific ideas and connections. I hope this list might prove helpful to anyone who wants to do a deeper dive into Hooper's music. Anything with question marks (???) next to it indicates I'm not 100% confident in my observation.
     

    POSSESSION THEME (this theme is particularly tricky to identify as it doesn't have one distinct setting, but consists of a gradual rising and falling shapes, often played by low strings)
    - POSSESSION: 0:42-end
    - HALL OF PROPHECY: 2:52-end (rapid variation in strings)
    - THE SIRIUS DECEPTION: 0:00-0:54

    - JOURNEY TO THE CAVE: 0:38-1:34??? (rapid variation in strings); 1:34-2:08??? (possible melodic variation)
    - THE DRINK OF DESPAIR: 0:33-end
    - INFERI IN THE FIRESTORM: 1:07-1:35
    - THE KILLING OF DUMBLEDORE: 0:41-2:45
     
    IN NOCTEM (DUMBLEDORE THEME):
    - OPENING: 0:25-1:14 (tragic setting)

    Very nice! I love Hermione’s theme. I wish it was used more.
     
    Of Love and War is unused sadly but was supposed to be used during the quidditch tryouts scene. It works perfectly with the scene with both JW’s quidditch theme and Hermione’s theme when she confunds McLaggan.
     
    There are also some other themes, like Malfoy, Slughorn, Felix Felicis Morif, Unbreakable Vow, The Great Hall and some more. I made a list a while ago, which I’ll try to find.
    Yes I heard that he stopped scoring films and TV to pursue writing novels.
     
    I can recommend his music for Nature Documentaries, it’s beautiful but not that easy to find. Most of what he did for TV hasn’t been released sadly.
