    Those who liked his score for Monster House (I thought it was pretty good) might be excited about this new assignment for the composer:

    CITY OF EMERALD

  1. oh cool, a fantasy film score is always a good sign, no matter the composer on board, even though I must say Pipes' Monster House was really classy and fun
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh

    Please write a theme. MONSTER HOUSE would have been a GREAT score if it had a distinct theme!

    I must agree. Something quirky and malicious, but fun.
    A butterfly thinks therefore I am
  3. the most known score of Douglas Pipes is Monster House, and I thought it would be fun to place a horror score (at least in these selections) over a fluffy movie like Ice Age

    So you'll hear the "main title" as "house eats cop car" over the trailer of Ice Age, it may not sound like anything at all what you heard of David Newman in the movie, but it is fun to discover how easily different kinds of music can alter a complete concept

    anyway, I think it works if you want to see this as a suspense/horror movie cheesy
    hope you like it

    ^ Really looking forward to this. I enjoyed Monster House for the most part (too bad there is no theme to speak of) so I can't wait to hear what Pipes will deliver with this one!

    I've been wanting this film to come out for the longest time. It was finished ltwo years ago I think, but constantly getting delayed and delayed and delayed/cancelled/delayed. I think it is finally getting a DVD release this fall.
  5. and here are the 2 Pipes reviews:

    - Monster House
    - Trick 'r Treat

    Enjoy

    To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with Trick r' Treat. It's probably because my expectations were too high from reading the reviews like MainTitles and MMUK. It's not a bad score at all, it's just below the awesome horror score I was expecting. But I should listen to it again.

    Yeah, I've sampled the score, and it didn't do anything for me, I'm afraid (although I like the idea of combining Christmas music with more horror-type stuff for effect).
    I am extremely serious.
  8. It didn't do too much for me either. After a while I got bored and turned it off.

  9. A couple of weeks ago, Kaya Savas, Craig Lysy and I visited composer Douglas Pipes at his studio to present him with the 2015 IFMCA Award for Best Original Comedy Score for KRAMPUS!

    This is the article about his win on the IFMCA website: http://filmmusiccritics.org/2016/03/dou … r-krampus/

    And this is the interview we did with him about the score, on the IFMCA YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/R1bcH8Mhtu4

    Enjoy!
