  1. Thank goodness to Youtube third party system that lets you know when you've uploaded something copyrighted and if it's blocked. With it just now I didn't have to suffer through a long period of waiting for somebody to identify a piece of music.

    I don't have a Youtube likn, but I have a link where you can hear the whole track.

    Check out the long version of "Cataclysm" by a composer I've never heard of named Ann Moore (APM Music track):

  2. I really enjoyed the score to this one minute TV commercial:

    I know who scored it, but I can't recall his name at the moment. Fuck.

  5. I was rewatching the Hunger Games series recently and I noticed that Caesar Flickerman has the funkiest theme music ever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNLWOBLgfNs cool

    Why is it that all the best music from that series is source? tongue

    Why in heaven's name would you rewatch the Hunger Games?

    Because if you look past some of the more obnoxious aspects of that series' marketing and fanbase, there's some pretty solid, daresay even complex storytelling in there. I think there's a lot to like about The Hunger Games.

    Here's a version by the legendary Glen Campbell

    WILLIAM TELL OVERTURE

    Many people don't even know that he is a brilliant guitar player.

    Yup. I think THE HUNGER GAMES is vastly superior to every other book-for-teen-girls-turned-into-a-film that's been made so far, and I'm sorry to say that I've watched most of them. My wife being an author she feels like she has to see all the films based on major books in the industry. They are all really terrible, the one exception being THE HUNGER GAMES. I've seen the first two a couple of times and enjoy them quite a bit.
  10. That said, if you haven't seen these hilarious musical parodies of the hunger games yet, you should definitely check them out. They're very well done.

    Yeah, that was cool. Like an instrumental 80s synthpop tune without the synths!

  17. Not YouTube, strictly, but I thought this was the place.

    I stumbled across this because someone mentioned it on the Two Steps From Hell subreddit...it's a 21-minute piece called "Dreams of Flight" by a guy named Denny Schneidemesser who does some film composition but also dabbles in the epic/trailer/whateverit'scalled genre. He's got a big note at that SoundCloud link describing the piece (which is divided into four movements roughly following a calm-exciting-calm-exciting pattern) and its influences (a lot of How to Train Your Dragon, for starters), so I won't repeat too much of that.

    What I will say is that the composer was 25 when he wrote this (in 2012), and that shows in mostly a good way (in that it's full of youthful limitless exuberance and energy) and also a slightly less good way (in that it kind of lacks depth and beats you over the head a bit towards the end). Be warned that it's also mostly samples, something which becomes pretty evident during the louder brass-heavy segments, but the samples are augmented by a handful of absolutely gorgeous live woodwind performances (bassoon, oboe, english horn (!), clarinet, flute and tin whistle). Especially in the quieter movements, they give the whole thing a more organic feel.

    It's no "That's a Wrap" and Schneidemesser is clearly no Thomas Bergersen, but it's an impressive piece that is bursting with melody, really takes you on a journey and is all in all a very good way to spend 20 minutes.

    Enjoy, and let me know what you think!
  18. This is a well crafted piece but without a film to relate to all the bombast seems empty. It's the functional power anthem kind of action music that - especially in its RCP incarnations - I have become tired to listen to. Powell's Dragon scores - just because he mentions them - are redeemed by great orchestration and great melodies.

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    That's fair enough, although I think this is more of the "uplifting" variety than power anthems. Certainly I can't remember too many RCP scores of late that focus so much on positive emotions. Obviously the orchestration and melodies are still far, far, far, far below the actual How to Train Your Dragon scores.

    Does that mean you only listen to film scores from films you've seen?
  21. Actually, IIRC, he does. For the most part.
