    I doubt it. Zimmer seems to be content with facebook, twitter and maybe the odd techie forum.

    Have we ever had any internationally famous film composers here (no offense to those composers we DO have)?
    I am extremely serious.
  1. I think Chris Tilton used to be a frequent film music board contributor, didn't he?

    Jeff Rona once stopped by to defend himself when people were lambasting the choice to have him compose music (that turned out to be fabulous IMO) for the Beijing Olympics.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Here at maintitles?

    I know there have been a couple at FSM -- Stu Philips, Russ Garcia, Michael Giacchino (he looked at FSM, anyway).

    What about Bear McCreary? Isn't he a maintitles friend of sorts?
    I am extremely serious.

    I hope that Zimmer isn't planning on composing a score for a four-piece band. Because, at the moment, that's what it looks like.

    Whether the score is good or not, I am intrigued to hear this one. However there does seem something "gimmicky" about it, Zimmer got a bunch of famous drummers together for Man of Steel and did something very ordinary with them.

    It reminds me of the time that self inflated opinion of himself STING did his album The Dream of The Blue Turtles ( which, to be fair, is not bad at all ) where he got together some of the biggest names in Jazz only for them to play very "ordinary" music that any good session musician could have played.

  4. Judging by his choices (three guitarists, drummer, himself on synth), it may be pretty much a live (this time the budget will allow an orchestra) version of Rush. Maybe what spoke to him is the nerdy character of Peter Parker, basically there is a bit of teenage angst to the whole Spiderman story. I am not trying to judge anything, I'm not very excited for this one.

    I disagree with the "ordinary" part of the comment. The percussive sound might not have carried itself well on screen, but I certainly feel that the overall timbre is strikingly unique. I do think that I would have preferred that he spent the money on a live orchestra for all of the material relating to Clark Kent->Superman, and keeping the synthy stuff for Zod and Krypton.
  5. The thing is that it was intended as in unison from the start. I don't think he ever explained why he wanted it, though. It's somethiing I don't fully get.

    To me Zod is the bane of the score, really. While Hans addressed the identity theme of the film very well (even in the simple fact that the Krypton motif and the Clark Kent theme which the final Superman theme derives from are the same melodies, but in different keys - Krypton is minor key, Clark Kent is major key) and Flight very nicely delivers a failed Superman theme for a failed attempt to have Clark accept his Kal-El identity in the final flight, featuring the Kal-El *theme* (deriving from Krypton's motif) in full glory, that's all very good. But the score fails when Zod appears, because so related to the main theme of the film (the best thing about the script along with the scene where little Clark locks himself at school), this part of the plot is scored in the most generic way possible, I think.

    I'd also have preferred not a different approach, but a different *mix* of the score.

    I am slooowwwwwly coming back, whenever i find time which for a long time won't happen often wink I haven't seen RUSH yet so i reserve final judgement but on cd, it didn't do much for me; but as people who've watched Rush told me, it's very connected to the movie so it's natural that i can't connect emotionally on cd alone. But 2013 is an insanely good year for scores anyway, i am having huge difficulties narrowing down to top 10 wink

  8. Yeah, it's a perfect score for the film and the CD does suffer from a far from perfect sequencing (more than anything, it's about the sequence of tracks than the choice, though, to be honest, I'd leave the songs out, because the narrative of the score is pretty careful and it's ruined by the songs, they should be either out of the album completely or put at the beginning/end of it).

    It is a pretty good year, indeed, though some of the names we expected so much from didn't end up releasing (Desplat) or writing (Horner) much...

    I haven't heard it yet but don't you think Journey To The Line* has already been diluted to an ineffectual death?

    *Please tell me I'm assuming correctly on TTRL influence.

    The score for 12 YEARS A SLAVE (and I mean the complete score, as heard in the film) definitely is NOT a mere 'copy' of TRL, and Steve McQueen definitely is NOT a dick-wad. 12 YEARS A SLAVE ranks among the, if not is THE best film of 2013 on many levels.
