    Erik, how does the "piano" tag work in iTunes?

    Do you have to select "piano" and associate it with specific tracks or does iTunes select a series of "key words"?


    I just typed "piano" in the search field and anything tagged with the word piano whether in the track title or album name showed up. Then I placed the tracks I wanted into a separate playlist.

    Thanks. I was wondering if you had added keywords to some tracks to highlight whether they were piano-heavy cues so that they would be picked up when searching for piano cues.

    Still playing my piano compilation and I had to stop editing to give my undivided attention to Danny Elfman's frenetic "Piano" movement from Serenada Schizophrana. shocked Wow! I forgot how incredible this concert work is. I don't think I've heard this kind of writing from Elfman before. I'm going to have give the entire album another spin very soon.

    NP : QB VII - Jerry Goldsmith



    Been a loooong time since I listened to this, it's a great TV score, superb in fact! Anyone ever seen the film? I read Leon Uris book years ago but have never seen the celluloid version.

    Excellent score. And the Goldsmith influences don't distract. I find there is a bit more meat on the bones of this score then let's say L.A. Confidential. And even though the love theme stunk up the joint in the movie it's lovely, by itself, on CD.

    Certainly one of my favourites of recent times. Fantastic score.


    Pearl Harbor Suite Hans Zimmer & Steve Jablonsky

    A fan made suite of all the best bits from the complete score amounting to a hefty one-track 35 minutes. Not that I'm bothered, because it's an awesome and lovely 35 minutes.

    I passed on this when it first came out but with the resurgence of the composer this year I may hunt this one out.

    Well worth it. Very Elfmanish, and a very mature work. Fascinating stuff!

    I thought, what would be the most relaxing score to listen to on arriving back after a few drinks? Threw this one on and it sure is soothing, and very dreamy. Nice stuff.

    cool
  10. A final foray into playlists:

    NP: "Battle Tracks" - Various Artists

    "Fort Battle" - The Last of The Mohicans - Trevor Jones
    "Bridge Battle" - Lair - John Debney
    "Preparing For Battle" - "The Cinema Collection" - Alan Williams

    Does anyone know which score the Alan Williams track comes from?

    Another lovely Newman score, this time from the early nineties. Gorgeous piano, woodwind, guitar melodies backed by soothing string lines make this an equally relaxing listen.

    NP: The Dark Knight - Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard

    I thought I'd put this one on before heading to bed. I must say that the first three tracks are stunning! I'm still shocked that I'm saying that about this score. "Why So Serious?" is just about as perfect of a cue for the opening of the picture that you could find and it is absolutely one of the most unique pieces of "music" Zimmer as come up with.

    I love "I'm Not a Hero" I've come to accept the two note motif from the first film and it's use in this track is down right perfect. The slow moving piece then kicks it up a notch but still follows a with long calls of the two note Batman motif. The big brass clusters that enter near the end of the track are most welcome and really help propel the track along.

    And then there is "Harvey Two-Face." Right now , it's the cue of the year!

    So, I go to bed satisfied with a score that has just completely surprised me. I had no expectations for anything great after hearing the first score but I think I had to do come to terms with my preferences in film music and realize that the world is changing. Now, I still don't like most of the changes, but I'm really glad that this score connected with me even though I still disagree adamantly with the approach of the Batman Begins score.

    BTW, I've changed my mind concerning "Like A Dog Chasing Cars" My original assessment of it was wrong. I think I was talking about a different track when I was comparing this to "Molossus." I mean, there is no comparison. They are two different tracks. I actually really like "Like A Dog Chasing Cars." The new theme again fits the rest of the score like a glove.

    You know, I see myself return to this score more often this year.
