  2. Last week Kaya Savas and I sat down with Christopher Young to present him with his IFMCA Award for THE MONKEY KING; we also asked him a few questions, including one asking for a clarification on the album situation.

    Here's the article: http://filmmusiccritics.org/2015/04/chr … nkey-king/

    And here's the interview, on the IFMCA Youtube Channel: https://youtu.be/WR8-BcArBqY

    A lovely, generous man and a great composer.
  3. Synchrotones don't do #ThrowbackThursday... but we do #WetYourPantsWednesdays.... In eager anticipation of Clive Barker's novel The Scarlett Gospels, which promises to bring to an end the story of Pinhead, here is a look back at Hellraiser, Hellbound and Hell On Earth (by Christopher Young and Randy Miller, respectively).

    Buy. Now.

    Interested to hear this. No expense spared putting together an album though? An album including two 18-minute tracks - it will need to be "wow".

    There really wasn't any expense spared - Young reworked the whole score as a "concert work" for cello and orchestra, including recording (a great deal of) new material just for the album.
  5. Ah, so it's a concert work and not the original soundtrack? What's wrong with "a series of short film cues"? The music not stand up to that kind of presentation?

    No idea, but it certainly stands up to this one! The most unexpectedly wonderful album I've bought in a while.

    I do remember we got to hear a 7-minute snapshot of the score at the IFMCA (almost 2 years ago now) and was impressed back then - and disappointed that, at the time, there was not apparent release of the score.

  6. I've listened to this a lot since it arrived last week. Stunning music and I love the way it's presented, you can tell a great deal of thought and care went into it.

    It's really the ideal form of presenting a soundtrack, IMO. I wish all soundtrack albums were treated thusly.

    I agree and disagree: I do really not enjoy twenty-minute suites if that is what the whole of the album is made up of. But special concert suites or album arrangements...yeah, we're SORELY lacking those.

    I agree with Thor in that every album should be optimized for the listening experience, while pretty much every album released nowadays in just the cues as written and performed for the film thrown in with a 'let's see home many of them we can fit in an 80 min time range'. I love the route they went with this release, and though I don't necissarily need all my cd's to be done like this, it's for example the John Williams way of releasing, in which many ideas or themes are presented in suites, that is indeed very much lacking lately and sucking a lot of the enjoyment out of my score listening for the past few years.

    As do most of us, I assume. Though I imagine 'optimised' means different things to different people.

  7. Can't there be a happy medium? The film cues (the important ones, at least - but who's to say what's "important"?), followed by a suite (or a few suites) that flesh out the material in ways that the film proper doesn't allow. Oh wait, that's what end credits are (or SHOULD BE) for!

    The best presentation depends on the musical characteristics of the score. There is no 'one size fits all' approach; the suite approach can be just as valid as a comprehensive multi-disc set.

    Well, La La Land Records disagrees and has said so directly about Thor (over at FSM). And they shoudl know their stuff: they have, after all, said 2014 was their best year ever. Expanded and compelte scores are clearly a money maker and the niche market [of limited editions] is agreeing with that.

    Wow, TWO rhetorical fallacies at once, Justin! Both argumentum ad populum as well as appeal to authority. Impressive!

    Well, if LLL's "expanded" scores clearly outsold their "regular" releases that may be an indication that the market indeed now has a specific demand. But without that confirmation and some numbers to compare I fear it's anyone's guess.
    Let's just say I wouldn't be surprised if the market is moving in that direction. After all, how many re-releases of regular editions can you do until the -already niche- market is saturated?

  9. Argumentum ad populum isn't a fallacy when it comes to what makes money. wink
