  1. About Star Wars 7 music department , do we have to take imdb info seriously ??? Matt Ashbeck ... composer: additional music Ramiro Belgardt ... music editor Alejandro de la Llosa ... orchestrator Sandy DeCrescent ... orchestra contractor Felix Erskine ... additional composer: teaser trailer Mark Graham ... head of music preparation Gregory Jamrok ... music preparation Randy Kerber ... musician: keyboards Shawn Murphy ... score engineer / scoring mixer Victor Pesavento ... music preparation Conrad Pope ... orchestrator Brian Popkin ... composer: additional music William Ross ... conductor John Williams ... conductor Robert Wolff ... scoring editor Joe Zimmerman ... music preparation
  2. Do we know if Williams is conducting any of the Force Awakens? If someone else is conducting, will that have a major effect on the outcome of the score?
  3. Of course nobody knows as of yet but if you had to hazard a guess, what direction do you think Williams will take with the Force Awakens score? From the footage so far of the film, it looks more like the originals. Do you think Williams therefore may return to his writing style that he did for the originals or do you think we will hear something more akin to the prequels and his more modern style?
  4. The OST is up for pre-order on Amazon UK http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00IUA5FC0

  9. So far since composing Indiana Jones 4 in 2008, Williams has brought us 4 more motion picture scores, 3 of them to films by Steven Spielberg. Which one is your favorite? Don't just say the title - tell us why! For me, i find it hard to decide. Tintin is the most accessible and the most fun. I love all the action music, especially the swashbuckling piratey music, as well as the puzzle solving music, playful Snowy music, location setting music, etc. And of course the jazzy opening titles! This is also the score I've listened to the most times out of the 4 for sure, partly due to it being the first new Williams score released in 3 years, and also cause it's just damn good! War Horse still blows me away. It's a score that grabbed me right away and has never let go, full of great themes and great settings of those themes. The reunion theme is so heartbreaking! This is film music at it's best, conveying emotions that can affect the listener deeply. It's also the only score of the 4 I've continuously listened to since getting it (I don't think I've listened to Tintin since 2012) Lincoln was a very surprising score to me. For whatever reason, I wasn't expecting too much from it, but then it came out and it was just FULL of FANTASTIC themes. The difference between it and War Horse, I think is that while War Horse has interesting music in between the thematic passages, while with Lincoln I don't find those sections to be as interesting. But the themes are all great. The Book Thief I've only listened to 3 times so far, but it is a very nice, quiet score. A couple of the themes are really great, and most of the rest of the score seems to be little ideas that only exist in one track but are all very nice to listen to. So every score has great things to offer in my opinion, but if I had to pick one, I suppose today I'd pick War Horse. What are your picks, and why?
  10. The OST is up on various Amazons, listed as an "import" on all of them - and therefore, quite expensive. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00T5C3SHG/ http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00T5C3SHG/ http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00T5C3SHG/ http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00T5C3SHG/ http://www.amazon.fr/dp/B00T5C3SHG/ http://www.amazon.it/dp/B00T5C3SHG/ http://www.amazon.de/dp/B00T5C3SHG/ http://www.amazon.es/dp/B00T5C3SHG/ http://www.amazon.in/dp/B00T5C3SHG/ What's up with that? Anyways here's a clip of the film with Zimmer's score in it
  11. 2015 is not only a big year for Hollywood blockbusters in general, but a big year for a lot of film composers as well. I'll start by highlighting 3 of them: It's a big year for MICHAEL GIACCHINO. He's got Jupiter Ascending, his second collaboration with The Wachowskis. This one's already out, so there isn't much more to say about it. Tomorrowland, his fourth collaboration with Brad Bird, after The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and Mission: Impossible 4. The film looks to be a fun fantasy adventure film that will give Giacchino a wide brush to paint wish, without being so unabashedly extravagant like Jupiter Ascending. Can't wait. Jurassic World, his first collaboration with director Colin Trevorrow, but his fourth entry in the Jurassic Park franchise (he scored three video games: The Lost World, Chaos Island, and Warpath). He will be using John Williams' themes, something he has previously done on Star Tours... and of course he has quoted John Williams as an inspiration many times. I imagine he is incredibly excited about this project, and will come up with something really special. Really looking forward to it. Inside Out, his second collaboration with Pete Docter, after Up. Out of the four, this is actually the one I'm most looking forward to. I mean, it's one of the rare big budget films coming out this year that isn't a sequel, prequel, reboot, or based on an existing property, and it's Pixar, and the score to Up was great. And the film is about the personified emotions of a young girl, so is ripe for a wild fantastical score. Really can't wait for this one! It's also a big year for JAMES HORNER - his biggest year since 2005!! Wow! He's got: Wolf Totem, his fourth collaboration with Jean-Jacques Annaud, after The Name of the Rose, Enemy At The Gates, and Black Gold. Looks like some kind of adventure film set in China, should be neat! The 33, about the Chilean mining disaster, directed by Patricia Riggen. Not sure what to expect about this one until a trailer comes out. Southpaw, a boxing movie directed by Antoine Fuqua. The film's got a good cast - Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Naomie Harris, Forest Whitaker - but a lot of times these types of movies don't have much score in them. This one might not get a score release, who knows. Living in the Age of Airplanes, an IMAX documentary formerly called Aviation: The Invisible Highway. We know about Horner's obsession with planes and flying - this could end up being amazing! And of course, it's the biggest year in a while for JOHN WILLIAMS as well. He's got St. James Place (working title), his (!!) collaboration with Steven Spielberg. A cold war thriller starring Tom Hanks, this has potential to be a pretty cool score, I think! Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens, his first collaboration with J.J. Abrams, and seventh score in the franchise. What more needs to be said!? Any thoughts on these scores? And what other scores in 2015 are you looking forward to, everyone? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_in_film

  13. I figured this poll thread would stop the endless poll threads.
  14. So now when we have the last Hobbit score i'm curious which score you guys prefer in both of the trilogies. Of course the choice might change if we ever get complete recordings of the Hobbit but please vote on what you feel right now based on all the material we have and have heard in the films. I LOVE all the scores myself and to me it is very hard to pick my favourites since I feel that all of the scores have their assets. If you want you can write how you personally would rank the scores. This is how I would rank the scores right now (I feel that my opinion might change in the future): The Lord of the Rings trilogy - 1. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King 2. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring 3. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers The Hobbit trilogy - 1. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 2. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 3. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey This was very hard for me to do since all of the scores are 5/5 scores to me...
  15. Much like last year when D2 Mastering revealed that the Deluxe Edition of The Abyss was coming before Varese announced it, they have done so again for Predator 2. Source: http://d2mastering.com then click "clients" I cannot WAIT for this - the score is really great but the OST was incomplete and incorrectly mastered. This is gonna be awesome!
