RESTORED ISOLATED SCORE: Superman The Movie (Unused Music Restored To Picture)

Recommended Posts

@Holko@lairdo@Incanus@Disco Stu

Here we go! thanks to a JWfan member for the mockups!

Main Title (As Written):
 

"The sheet music does not contain the timpani roll at 1:11 so I have edited it out

I edited out the first two bars of the ostinato at 1:11 as they aren't in the sheet music

1:11-1:16 contain mockup. the ostinato continues onto beats 3 and 4 of the measure for these two bars."

I had to speed up a section of the video to sync.

1M2 Kryptonopolis (As Written):
 

"The recorded version has most of the bass pedal tones start on a low F and then move down to D on the 4th bar. In the sheet music though, the instruments are playing a low D the whole time. Mock-up from 0:00-0:14 to replicate that opening. 

Mock-up from 0:33-0:53 re-creates 4 cut bars of interesting development in between the two brass statements of the Krypton theme. 

The sheet music has no percussion at the spot at 3:52-3:59, so a brief mock-up replicates the orchestra part to present it percussion-less"

I inserted a bit of black screen during the sentencing to sync.

The Planet Krypton (Alternate Segment) [1m2 Kryptonopolis (As Recorded)]:

I shortened one of the zoom in shots of Kryptonopolis to sync
 

1m2A New Krypton (As Written)

"1:23-:128 has a small bit of mock-up to create the original ending. The as-recorded ending has the strings move up a 4th before moving back down to the final note. This original ending simply moves from low C up one step to the last note (D)."

1m3 [Rev] The Dome Opens (As Written)
 

"Mock-up from 0:53-1:08 to restore 5 cut bars. This cut moment extended out the phrase of that the horn/trumpet start playing, which builds to a tremolo in the upper strings. 

The sustained note in the high strings/ww at 1:36 is 2 bars long originally. I artificially extended the sustain to make it last longer

1:44-2:04 is mock-up to re-create 7 cut bars. This cut-out chunk is one more statement of the low brass music that appears near the start of the cue with the swirling low strings underneath. "

I am not too sure of this one, I might revisit it after seeing if either cut of Superman II has any extra footage from this sequence in it's prologue recap. (or in the bonus features of any of the Superman BD's)

2m1 The Council's Decision (Original / As Written)

 

"1:21-1:25 Added woodwind parts on top of the brass chord, very subtle. It's not crossed out, but I can't hear them on the final recording, so I'm guessing they were told not to play or were drowned out by brass

4:06-4:41 Added in a clarinet part that has these oscillating back and forth fast notes, creating kind of a shimmery effect. I can't for the life of me hear this part on the final recording, so maybe also the clarinet was told not to play during this section. It's mixed in softly so it's a subtle addition

4:58-5:20 Added a flute part back in. This one was crossed out so obviously was not recorded with the flutes playing during this section. 

5:33-5:36 Quick mock-up added for a woodwind flourish that happens on the big brass chord. This was crossed out. 

6:46-6:56 Small addition, layered a horn/trumpet sustained note on top of the already existing horn/trumpet part. Reason being that the sheets has them sustain the note for the entire 10 seconds, but in the recording they take a breath in the middle and re-start the note. 

7:11-END is the original unrecorded ending."

I made numerous trims to sync, using the Extended Cut, surprisingly most of them ended up being the additional stuff concerning the guard coming for Jor-El.

So, was the main title written with the tempo jump I fixed and shared not long ago? ;)

I was going to ask you the same question! ;):P:lick::lol:ROTFLMAO
