We still need a CD release of the last Doctor Strange film and since Intrada has released some Marvel score in the past I was thinking it could be that? Do we know what the score is yet?
If anyone is interested there is a podcast episode up at filmear.com (use the search words ‘film’ and ‘ear’ on iTunes to find it there) with someone who was at the scoring sessions for Justice League. Apologies are in order from the interviewer who was drunk, but it was his birthday after all. 😉
Hulk happens to be a real favorite of mine and I still listen to it regularly which only proves it’s all taste and purely objective. I can’t believe how good that score was when you take the time he had to compose it into the mix (Mission Impossible and Hulk both prove he can work miracles given just a few weeks). As for Justice League, I will see the film and listen to the score a few more times before I rush to judgment but I have liked a few of the tracks and agree that it sounds very scattered, which might also betray the chaotic nature of the making of the film itself. That being said, I still love to dive into all of his works because he has always given me a reason to listen to his work multiple times and usually I enjoy them more and more each time.
It’s an Anvil Ring Spun shirt that is 90% Cotton and 10% Poliester.
Sounds like Room got the score it deserved and it worked well in the film; I’m still not sure what you are asking, because Elfman’s work last year was so diverse and I believe that would be more rewarding to an artist like Danny. I assume he takes that into consideration (as well as director) when he chooses projects, and as for why he wasn’t asked, that’s not his fault but the fault of the film makers.
Is it just me, or were we supposed to get a new release of Midnight Run… expanded? I seem to remember a rumor about that about a year or so back… It could just be wishful thinking though.
I don’t think they worked together because John Cage died in 1992, but I would like to know what they used from Cage’s works. Probably some of his prepared piano pieces. Cage was one of the great free thinkers about music and help free music from the chains of it being defined as organized sound. I could also see Elfman writing something to corrispond to some of his solo vocal works like “Aria” which esqued traditional notation. I own a record of a cage piece that is supposed to be played by the listener – along with the album is a printout (that was different for each albumn sold) that showed times when bass/treble/volume knobs are supposed to be turned to certain values (it’s really wild!).
A new episode went up on Monday and we are working on a Elfman themed shirt right now!
I was listening to one of his most beautiful scores ‘Searching for Bobby Fischer’ when I read the awful news.
Since you don’t have to post examples it would be nice to know when and where a selection is available… like where it can be downloaded or if it’s availalble to listen to through spodify or something similar. Can’t wait to see the new look and good luck! Would like to help but I’m busy myself, but if you need something I could help a little.
You rock Ryan!
Forgot how fun the Big Top score was! Hope to see more expanded Elfman scores and some of the missing few that aren’t on disc in the future! LaLaLand is an Elfman Oasis!
Here Here! I agree!
I’ve been coming to this board for at least 8 years now and I LOVE this community (as select as it is). It beats all the troll enfested larger film score boards!
Made it through the first 100 pages with the lalaland release and it’s a lot more eclectic than I thought. After going through the whole thing I’ll listen to the tracks again by themselves and jot down some spots that I want to check out, then revisit the score in those places.
I’ve loved the releases of this sheet music and understand that Omni has Matrix coming soon…
If there was another Elfman release, what should it be? Something like “Nightmare Before Christmas” seems doable, but my personal pick would be for HULK or BIG FISH.
I remember both Elfman and Zimmer talking about Elfman meeting Zimmer at Remote Control before he started to compose the music for the new Batman series and he neither had a bad thing to say about Elfman or his score. What exactly was said about Elfman’s score? I do remember Zimmer talking about how Elfman’s score wouldn’t work in Nolan’s Batman… and he’s right. I’ve always heard that they got along swimingly with each other.
That’s understandable… but I guess that, just like with the Avengers Score (also release by Intrada), Amazon will carry it but it will be the same “flat” price of $19.99, and with Intrada’s deal with Disney I guess we will at least see physical releases for any big Disney film (but be prepared to pay $19.99) – Intrada after all finially released “Up” as well as “Toy Story 3” on CD.
What are you talking about… “no cd release”? It’s already been anounced that Intrada is releasing the CD.
NACHO LIBRE… Not likely but after listening to the Bootleg of this, I would love a legit release… Also an expanded DICK TRACY would really make my year!
I wonder if Elfman rearranged “Funeral March for a Marionette” on track 27, if they used Bernard Herrmann’s multi-bassoon version, or if they went with the original Gounod arrangment?
Why would you when you can just download the 2 tracks you want now? This is the best thing about music downloads today. If an albumn does get released of the score I will buy a hard copy but for now I’ll be happy just to have those two music tracks and not have to pay for the rest of the albumn (although the Dave Brubeck pieces are nice – I still have them).
While listening to it twice I have to say I like it a lot more than MIB3 but Dark Shadows is still his best this year. There are many great “nuggets” in there but with this stop-action movie being non-song driven it does drop a lot of the cohesivness that Nightmare and Corps Bride contained – there’s a lot of stop and go. I do love all the pistache to old universal monster movies though – once the score gets going in the second half Frankenweenie is a real hoot!
Damn! I didn’t even study.
I have yet to see the movie, but after listening to the whole score all the way through… twice – I have to say this is one of the best Beginning-To-End listens from a Tim Burton Score in a while. This is mainly due to the strong opening followed by the atmospheric cues (broken up with the Reprise ALICE style) that then give way to an extended exhilarating ending that starts with “The Angry Mob”. From that cue to the end is well paced and never repetitive. Contrast this Score (And it’s album presentation) with ALICE and you come away thinking that Elfman found a lot more to say with this score. I love it and can’t wait to hear it in context.
