If you're going to go ahead with a flawed notion to begin with, what answer would you expect? Maybe there are people who believe that, but who's to say they can't think that?

 

And who's Ishtar Legos anyway?

No trailers yet for either feature.

 


Plus, he'll presumably score Pete Docter's Soul for Pixar, opening June 19 2020

 

 

 

All that plus we should be getting info about the Spider-man Far From Home OST any time now!

I dunno I mean, Jojo Rabbit is set during WWII, but it's not a war movie in the sense that it's not about soldiers and battles and missions.  Probably has no reason to sound anything like Medal of Honor

UPDATE: Giacchino confirmed on Twitter he's not actually scoring Scoob :(

 

 

 

 

He'll still probably score Soul tho, I'd reckon.

 

I wonder if he'll have a third film for 2019 after Spider-man 2 and Jojo?  He hasn't had a year with less than 3 scores since 2014.  Of course he is directing an animated Star Trek short so who knows what kind of time that's taking up.

At the Dublin Giacchino concert, he had a little technical issue towards the end so decided to have a random QandA session. Someone asked him if he was scoring The Batman. He didn't deny it and was actually quite telling in his nervous response.

Wait, Giacchino knows how to conduct? Then why keep that Ludwig Wicki Wacky guy around? Do his arms get tired too quickly?

Not all composers need to conduct their work, and Giacchino seems to have built strong relationships with his conductors - Tim Simonec, Ludwig Wicki etc. who probably know what he wants. I admire that trust between them.

To make sure it sounds the way he intends it to?

Unlike Herrmann, Rózsa, Goldsmith, or Williams, who didn't have to make sure it sounds the way they intended, and jolly conducted? Legit reason.

 

I think that first for a long time he couldn't, and then became affluent enough to afford outsourcing it. He is not exactly a perfectionist. In fact, he is very lazy.

What's your problem? Different composers work the way that suits them. Giacchino prefers to oversee the recordings in the booth and it works for him. That's not laziness, and the comparison to the older composers is bizarre. Jeez.

It's not like every great composer of yore conducted their work, too. Some composers prefer to be in the booth where they can oversee and monitor the music as heard in mix, which is not gonna be the same as the room sound. It can be as much a philosophical reason as a question of technical ability.

 

Wait did I just defend Giacchino?

There's a rumour doing the rounds ATM that Michael Giacchino will be the composer of Godzilla Vs Kong. Don't know where that came from, but while I think he could do it well enough, it would be a pity to pass up Bear McCreary since he did some great work blending original material with classic themes in KOTM.

I will go the concert of Michael Giacchino vs David Arnold this Friday in the Royal Albert Hall. Is someone from this forum going too?
