    Everything is on the cloud and digital these days; portable and small. Quickly accessible and share-able. This it the exclusive future. Those who don't realize it, will be stuck behind, in romantic nostalgia. Social media is as powerful as ever and 2012-13 have been the first time in modern history were computers and laptops are seeing an official, worldwide, huge diminish in sales whilst smart phones, iphones and galaxies, and of course tablets (Especially ipad and other 7'' android models) are seeing a tremendous rise in sales.

    Especially if you're in this business, you're doomed before you even begin, if you're going to think backwards like this.

    But Jon, please; you're trying to talk reason and logic in economics with a German, in 2013 wink

  1. And the move to digital download releases means that there's a greatly increased variety of styles of music being released that would never be released if they had to press a physical release.

    It is sometimes a breath of fresh air listening to a small-scale score written by a composer I have never heard of who has the freedom to write what he wants, using the tools that he sees fit to use in a way that may be a bit "unorthodox".

  2. Don't get me wrong - if it's financially sensible and practical for there to be a physical CD, I will always choose that option myself. I just understand the realities of the music business as it exists in 2013, and know that when that's not an option, I want to support labels and artists by continuing to buy their digital download releases too.

    If labels don't print CDs, but then no-one pays for downloads either, it would be completely reasonable for them to assume that no-one wants the music at all, and stop releasing scores entirely due a perceived lack of market demand.
  3. Whether or not something is cheaper for a studio, or what the future holds (blowing in the wind, up in the clouds), matters not.

    Let us take a look at LP's. For all reasonable logic, they should be dead and gone, but they are not. They are not the medium of choice any longer, and the selection is very small, but you can still buy new LP's, and once in a very blue moon, some scores get an LP release.

    And despite the fact that long play records have fallen into LaserDisc and 8-track terriroty, there are still businesses out there manufacturing LP players. Making needles. Making new technologies, like needles that don't scratch, and so forth.

    As long as there are labels like La La Land Records and Intrada Records (for example, but not limited to), there will always be a niche market for CD's once they fall into disuse. And much like LP's, there will be new technology for CD's; I forsee a day of scratch-resistant CD's being sold at labels, which can hold more data (where, for example, 2CD's worth can fit on 1CD) and still be playable on regular players.

    CD's aren't going anywhere anytime soon. The market will dwindle and new tehnology will take it's place, but they will remain.

    In the meantime there are good reasons for those who prefer physical CD's, including (but not limited to) resell and having something that can be signed ("Hey mister, sign my hard drive?"), so if they want it that way, then let's not always jump on them for not wanting downloads, regardless of quality format offered (APE, FLAC, what not).

    Good review Jon. The general consensus from everyone here at MT seems to be positive.

    I listened to the sound files on Amazon again this morning: I some places it does sound a bit like Adiemus or doesn't it?

    Yeah. One part of it is completely indistinguishable. And the rest is similar with slightly different notes.

    Well, the interview session with composer, director and sound designer today went surprisingly well. We all talked for two hours, and even though some of us were uncomfortable with the English, there must surely be a worthy half-hour of good material there.

    The soundtrack for THE KING OF DEVIL'S ISLAND -- with this interview session as a bonus track -- will be available shortly. It's a beautiful score for a fine, fine film.

    Also, I was fortunate enough to hear some samples from the score he's working on now -- a new pirate film for kids (co-produced by Disney) called CAPTAIN SABRE TOOTH, a famous Norwegian kiddie hero -- and MAN, was that great stuff. Sounded like a cross between Hans Zimmer and Erich Wolfgang Korngold. Can't wait untill THAT is out. Here's the trailer:

    THE KING OF DEVIL'S ISLAND, about time! I've seen that film, very strong one and the score fits perfectly.

    It came out in 2010 over here, but I'm not sure about its international distribution dates.
