    There are definitely two coming, one of them just around the corner.



    Sweet Jebus... and they are?? shocked


    DAYBREAKERS is very close, and I've heard the album. It mixes the horror of SALEM'S LOT with the drama of ON THE BEACH, and there's several action tracks, a couple of which draw on the percussion section of the RUGBY WORLD CUP music (different notes and rhythms, but very recognizable nonetheless). The highlights for me are a long disturbing choral cue which has a lot of interesting electronics towards the end, the cue 'Into the Sun' (a six minute wrenching orchestra and choir work), the action cue 'Resurrection' (which has John Adams style orchestra over percussion) and the serene, nine minute end credit cue. The eerie choral material reminds me a bit of that Ligeti track that appears during the moon rocket bus scene in 2001 ('Lux Aeterna'), but is a bit more overtly unsettling.

    The other one is MAO'S LAST DANCER, which is about to start editing and will come out next year. There are several source cues he's written for the film, and one of them, 'Free Dance', was performed two weeks ago by a piano-and-percussion ensemble. It's reminiscent of Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, which ironically also played that evening by the same ensemble. (Apparently Bartok is another influence, but I don't know Bartok well enough to pick it up.) The scoring will happen early next year, I think. This one's a drama about a young Chinese farm boy who rises to the top of international ballet.

    Possibly there is also a third one coming, but I don't know anything about that one except that it isn't in the bag yet.

    You heard the album? Does that mean you don't have it? Regardless, this is excellent news. My mouth is actually starting to foam.

    Yeah?!! Well I've already got the shakes. And I'm now pacing repetedly from one side of the room to the next in restless anticipation!!!

    But seriously, I can't wait! lick
  2. I don't have the album. But I was given a chance to listen to the 67 minute piece, which was a very interesting experience. (Sitting with a composer, listening to their music, in the room it was composed in.)

    Nice comedy-fantasy score. I wouldn't be surprised if Mummy was part of the temp track at times, but if you're going to emulate anyone, emulate the best.

    VERY interesting observation. At least regarding to the first half of it, I would agree that A Dark Knight has a similar feeling of meditation as Pinta, Nina, Santa Maria. That track from 1492 must be the most beautiful thing someone can possibly write about a journey across the oceans, unbelievably atmospheric. A Dark Knight is the proper equilvalent for a journey through a Bat Man´s mind. wink

    NP:The Dark Knight

    Im addicted to it (How you notice). The fact the movie is being a real MEGA SUPER SMASH HIT is one of the reasons too...

    I find Joker's motif perfect. This is what a paranoic and sadic mind has in his interior.

    About Batman's themes and motifs, How I said, i really thing this kind of String progressions are perfect. They are muscular, dark and the strings makes a dramatic effect for a traumatized character.

    My only complainment is, For more I love the noble theme used as a heroic theme, I want the 2 big themes from the first movie come back and expanded! they are memorable and powerful!!! (In this movie only JNH used it , and im a very , very subtle way).

    Earlier...

    The Lost World - John Williams

    Love this one. Fabulous main theme, gripping action scoring, it's a great disc.

    Timeline - Jerry Goldsmith

    Another fine album, with some wonderful action music. It was about the only good thing the film had going for it, so its rejection is bizarre (and while the replacement score is quite good, it's essentially the same approach, only worse, which is pretty unusual for a replacement score which often take a different approach).

    Iron Will - Joel McNeely

    A brilliant, brief score whose Raiders of the Lost Ark quote is shameless, but the rest is top-drawer.

    Man I love that score. Granted, I'm a Goldsmith nut, but I think this was a genuinely impressive score to go out on. Nobody makes scores like Goldsmith!

    I think it's a very good score too.... but I dunno, something about is missing for me. Some sort of depth, there's something it doesn't have or at least that I'm not hearing, something that I'm missing about this score? Perhaps it's generally McNeely's style which doesn't always work for me, it can leave me a little cold at times. It's hard to explain since it's merely preference, but I know I'm going to get my head bitten off for saying this.

    For a film about a wolf/husky, I'd take Horner's Balto any day. Now that score has depth!
  6. Journey to the Center of the Earth (Andrew Lockington)

    Not bad score, and some really exciting moments, but too much to music to listen through
    Still fun score overall
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh

    Glad you liked it Ralph, movie and score are fabulous and the score fits and elevates it very ably. Jordi, have you watched 1492?

    Pretty generic. Not even good generic. Rather ordinary and nothing really standouts... except for the God awful rock and clichéd middle eastern music.
