    There are two types of people in the world who don't wince at the mere thought of bagpipes - the Scots and the deaf.

    I certainly cannot take much but in the right context ( ie: a context I like ) I do like them, the brief use in John Barry's MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS and the even briefer use by James Horner in WRATH OF KHAN spring to mind cool wink

    The briefer the better when it comes to bagpipes!

    But I do like them in those two scores too.

  2. What if I'm neither? (Hey, I do like The Thin Red Line and Goldsmith and Morricone and all!) I really like bagpipes, though more the Irish sort.

  3. I wonder which pipes (and why!) did he use in Patriot Games (which includes one of my all-time favourite Horner main title cues).

  4. Bagpipes are difficult to integrate with proper music and a proper orchestra. Didn't Horner have difficulty in integrating them both in the "Amazing Grace" piece in Star Trek?

  5. How so difficult? in Star Trek II, the pipes are playing solo, and the orchestra takes over after a couple of seconds.
    "considering I've seen an enormous debate here about The Amazing Spider-Man and the ones who love it, and the ones who hate it, I feel myself obliged to say: TASTE DIFFERS, DEAL WITH IT" - Thomas G.
  6. It is something to do with the segue from the pipes into the orchestra. I don't know the details but I think that it had something to do with the limited range of the bagpipes that did not sit well with the transition into the orchestra.

    Someone help me out on this!

  8. Didn't Horner integrate bagpipes perfectly into Braveheart or Titanic? Or are those some other kind of pipes?

    I absolutely love the sound of bagpipes, especially in a semi-military tattoo-ish setting (with drums) or indeed in a more orchestral setting.

    As far as I know there's absolutely no problem in integrating bagpipes into an orchestra or band.

    The only problem is with exisiting music: the bagpipes have a limited range and so it's very hard to play any music not specifically written or arranged for bagpipes. Oh, and the actual volume the pipes produce is deafening (literally!), so the placement in the band/orchestra is quite crucial.
    Otherwise, I wouldn't know why integrating bagpipes would be an issue.

    Incidentally, I really enjoy Brave.
    Not too keen on the songs, though.

  10. By the way, I recently listened to a non-score work by Doyle: his symphonic and choral 'The Thistle and the Rose'. What a beauty! I leave you a link:

    Saw Brave, finally, last night. What a fantastic movie, marvellous from start to finish but i still don't like the score at all; after watching the film my appreciation for the score became even less.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Has anyone seen the new Doyle release coming up? A VERY intriguing concept album thingie called "Impressions of America".

    Check it out:

    I'm definitely interested. I'm all for composers being released from the restrictive confines of film.

    A John Williams tone poem for violin, written in 2000 for violinist Gil Shaham. I think it's a beautiful piece myself, and don't understand what issue Scribe has with it.

    By the way, I think the Doyle album is right up your alley, Timmer. It even has tracks for various natural wonders, parks and mountains of the great country.

    I would enjoy Treesong if it was written by some random composer.
    But it's John Williams writing to appease idiots (those in the classical music world who don't like his film compositions) rather than being himself. The man is capable of writing something that would make Copland's Appalachian Spring look like a student project, but no one will support or encourage him in such a project because it's just not cool to write uplifting music anymore.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Of course it is, I didn't put my grey matter in gear. I agree, it's a lovely piece.

    Have you heard Doyle's album Thor? The track titles are indeed very enticing.
