It's obvious he is just itching for the opportunity to write that kind of stuff.

I know! This is so infuriating. How I wish he was scoring Craig's last entry! This just feels right. 

It's a crime against humanity that this guy isn't getting big studio work. To echo @SteveMc's thoughts, it's obvious this guy is itching for another mainstream film like Bond.

 

So very disappointing he didn't come back when Newman departed. It's nearly the same level of disappointment I had when Hooper finally departed Potter, thinking it would bring Williams back into the fold, only for someone totally different to get the gig.

Why would you want to subject Williams to more crappy Potter sequels?

It's like I said on the other thread:. I don't know if this is Arnold who is not invited to score the big blockbusters, or is it because he personally prefers to score British TV series these days. He and Don Davis would elevate considerably the quality of film scores being delivered for hollywood blockbusters. 

 

Well, on Davis case, at least they're making The Matrix 4, so they may rescue him from low budget movie no one cares and orchestrating Randy Newman's Pixar sequels.

Don’t get the big deal. It’s not a particularly great cue. Just Bond pastiche. 

 

Would you prefer Balfe to have scored it?

It feels more symphonic than trailers/adverts usually do, and the absence of any other dialogue or effects (which is a bit weird) makes you fully focus on the music. It's almost like Arnold scored a fully mixed version and they just took all that away and left the music.

Assuming the idea of that commercial was to tell you what the product is... they failed. I didn't realise it was a sweater until I clicked the link above.

 

Also, does this product description not smell a bit of marketing desperation?

 

 


Yeah, what's all the 'to celebrate 50 years of Bond' stuff about when that was 7 years ago? :huh:

Has he done any concert works not based on his film scores?

Has he done any concert works that ARE based on his film scores???

 

All I know is "Parade of the Athletes" from the (2012?) London Olympics.

It can be found on a CD named "A Symphony of British Music".

Not sure if that counts, but it seemed worth mentioning just in case.

I was referring to concert version of film music themes.

Like John Williams does, you mean?

 

If David Arnold ever did anything other than his pop beginning, his film scores, that Olympics theme and some TV shows these days, then I never heard of it.

Would be happy to find out there is more though! The guy does good work. :D
