    I can understand why Mcneely likes to score kid friendly family films, but I sure hope they are paying him lot of money. Otherwise, maybe he should work for someone who will actually release his music to the public.
  1. Joel McNeely update:

    - Flipper
    - Gold Diggers
    - Iron Will
    - Mulan 2
    - Return to Never Land
    - Shadows of the Empire
    - Terminal Velocity
    - Virus

    You guys have fun
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh

    Joel's website is really great and has a lot of free mp3s.

    Recommended:
    Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire
    The Fox and the Hound 2
    Return to Neverland
    Cinderella III
    Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln

    I wish there were a full score for The Fox and the Hound 2. The action tracks with the combination of the racing bluegrass banjo and the orchestral punches is really fun and unique. I'm glad Joel puts up some of his music for download at least. His scores need more official releases.

    Fabulous composer. I first fell in love with his music when he did Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, and was then quite blown away by both Terminal Velocity (which we all know features one of the best action cues ever written!) and Iron Will. These days I know that he enjoys doing the Disney stuff, but it would be great to see him work on some big action adventures (the 10% that is left when the Zimmer armada has nabbed its share) for some other companies - would probably result in more great albums too!

    Do anyone know what Joel McNeely is doing thees days? According to IMDB he hasn't scored anything in 2010.
  3. IMDB sucks ass on updates. Do not rely on them at all for what a compsoer is up to.


    NcNeely scored a Disney animated project not too long ago, as I recall, but I wasn't able to find out the name.

    He also continues to occassionally score episodes of "American Dad". I think this is his third year of working on the show now.

    His score to American Dad could be interesting but I doubt if that will ever get released. I wish he could score some action movies again...

    I like Shadows of the Empire.

    McNeely is one of those composers that I would like to see replacing all the shit "composers" currently out there. I place him in this group.

    There are a lot more composers alongside McNeely and Shearmur that deserve these prestigious Hollywood projects. It's not just three or four, dozens of them deserve their big break. I can add Jane Antonia Cornish, Fernando Velasquez, Christopher Lennertz, Ryan Shore, Mark McKenzie, et al to the list.

  4. Absolutely Mark McKenzie. It would be nice to see Broughton scoring a big film again. I would also love to see Debbie Wiseman scoring some bigger films, and Philippe Rombi. They've both scored films recently, but none of them have been very high profile.

    I agree, I just grabbed a few names that are some of my favourites, I like Lennertz work too. Nice Poledouris sound.

    Goldenthal (even though he is well known) should get much more stuff. (don't know if he's completely recovered though) Anyone knows something about this?

    It seems to me Goldenthal's being choosy about what scoring offers he gets, or maybe he just wants to take it easy and enjoy life after that incident a few years ago. I'm pretty sure Goldenthal still gets offers and entreaties to score films.

    And after listening to Wiseman's stuff, she does great if there's no temp track or anything. Lesbian Vampire Killers was great fun, but adhered too much to the temp track.

    The problem with McNeely, Talgorn, Shearmur, Broughton, McKenzie, Debney etc. is that they write wonderful, fan-friendly orchestral music, but they don't really have any striking musical personalities that immediately makes you go "yup, that's so-and-so". So I'm not sure if there's a high profile market for that anymore. You gotta be an Elfman, Horner, Williams or Goldenthal to really get through, at least in an "aesthetic" sense.
    I am extremely serious.

    I think all of those composers listed in Thor's post have there own distinct traits... even Debney. The issue is that there isn't a high profile market for traditional symphonic music a la Williams, Goldsmith, Horner.

    Yeah, I love McKenzie too. I play his DURANGO all the time, for example. But he's very traditional, old-school, very much "lovely, proficient orchestral music", but without the elements screaming "That's McKenzie!". At least none that I have heard so far.
    I am extremely serious.

    Hmm, I wouldn't agree about Goldsmith. I mean in general you are very right, but Goldsmith has done a lot outside of "traditional" symphonic writing to label him like this. Don't get me wrong, the fact that he went out of the box quite a lot (except late 90s and his final years) is the reason why I love him so much.

    I didn't say Goldsmith was only a traditional symphonic composer... but he did write plenty traditional symphonic scores. Hell, even Horner and Williams have stepped outside of the box to do something different and non-traditional.

  6. Nobody argues about that, I think Goldsmith did it a bit more often. I think it was him who actually introduced MIDI to film scores, wasn't it?

    And whether the high profile market isn't here anymore. I think a score like Williams's Black Sunday would still work today (Well, it does even - Munich refers to that one quite a bit)

    Sure... just as long as John Williams composes it and you have a knowledgeable director such as Spielberg at the helm. Those two could get away with murder.

  7. Or a clueless director who has a great producer who rejects Ramin Djawadi and hires McNeely and temps it with the Willliams score.

    That simple biggrin

  8. Found some news about a McNeely project -- thought I'd share it:

    "Top Hollywood composer Joel Mcneely has asked me to conduct a string orchestra, for a new Disney Theme Parks television campaign in the USA and we will be doing that via ISDN from Los Angeles."

    Earlier this spring, composer Joel McNeely returned to the Sony Scoring Stage to record the third film in the popular DisneyToons Studio computer-animated film series, Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. ScoringSessions.com is excited to bring our readers the exclusive photos from the sessions!
