    Muad'Dib reacted to Docteur Qui in Westworld Scoring Competition   
    Maybe I’m just biased because it was so poorly executed in the show.
     
    The guy in the scene isn’t injured, he’s drugged up with a substance called “genre” that changes his hallucinations/emotional reactions suddenly to align with common film genres, like noir, romance etc. It’s a nifty idea but atrociously realised in the show. The scene was originally tracked with Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” for some reason. The editing is glacially slow, the acting is flat-out weird and there’s no other cars in the middle of this supposedly high-octane sequence because they clearly only had 3 or 4 of the futuristic cars in their budget.

    Fascinating that they chose possibly one of the most anaemic action sequences ever put to television for this competition.

    Asked about Indiana Jones being mentioned in one of his new songs ("I Contain Multitudes"):
     
    But Indiana Jones was a fictional character?
     
    Dylan: Yeah, but the John Williams score brought him to life. Without that music it wouldn’t have been much of a movie. It’s the music which makes Indy come alive. So that maybe is one of the reasons he is in the song.

    Muad'Dib reacted to Tom in What is Williams going to compose this year? [2020]   
    A two-hour violin concerto that is so grating, unpleasant, and harsh that even the most snobbish critics will have to credit his composing abilities.  Perhaps a third movement of 30 minutes of silence and in a 6/8 time-signature.

    I would love if JW went back to his roots and put out a jazz album, like the ones he did when he went by Johnny. Churn out some sweet tones á la The Oak Room from The Post...

    The statement by Morricone has class and grace as well, and is a little more personal:

    "solitude", work "ethic", "constant dedication" are indeed also words that we have seen applied to Williams.

    An album of piano solos from Hidden World. It's rather nice, and very cool to hear all of the orchestral details in some of the busier cues, in piano form.

    I made an edit of They Will Come and March of the Resistance that actually seems seamless. I have to admit it is seamless by sheer luck, after just a handful of amplifications and cuts.

    Sorry for the quality, but on the other hand I don't even have these in FLAC, so it wouldn't be ideal anyway.

    A blaxplotation / neo-noir from the early that 70's that has aged surprisingly well and has a badass soundtrack. Super pleasantly surprised with the performances and the direction, almost like an early Scorsese or Spielberg. Fantastic all around.
