Your Perfect Composer?

Postby THX-1138 » Wed Feb 28, 2007 9:05 pm

Who would you want to score HDM?

I would say either Elliot Goldenthaal (Alien 3 has a fantastic score, very dark and grandiose) or the Polish composer Wojciech Kilar, whose score for Bram Stoker's Dracula is astonishing, he would give it a real epic darkness, and a great haunting quality.
His Darkl Materials is great!

The Subtle Knife is the best!

Ennio Morricone :D...no, I love his work, but it wouldn't fit there.
Perhaps Craig Armstrong... :?:
There is the elephant.
He's happy with his baloon.
Oh no, it's gone!
Where is it?
It's not behind the rhino.
Look at the aligathor's mouth.
It isn't there either.
Oh, the monkey got it in the tree.
It brings it back.
They all drink lemonade...

Normally I would say Danny Elfman, as he is the best composer ever; but, for something as epic as HDM, I think Hans Zimmer. I loved the music from Pirates and the Da Vinci code.

Well, Immediate Music for the trailer, hands down. They're the best there is.

And then, I'll agree with F&F, Hans Zimmer is a good option.

Or perhaps Yokko Kano, she's a briliant composer able to swich genres like *that* (switching genres super fast)

So yes, Hans Zimmer would be my fantasy composer.

Hanz zimmer is a great option! He's done Gladiator.. Pirates... Spirit.. Lion King... and multiple others! He's greta at capturing emotion in his scores and if there's another topic below this one where you can find more about him I'm sure.

I agree. Hans Zimmer has the dark mood down pat!

Sorry, guys, but I'm going to have to go with Howard Shore right here. My favorite composer (well, in terms of movie scores). He's already shown that he can do very, very epic scores with The Lord of the Rings.

Someone from the following should compose the music (though it's already been composed, right?)
in no particular order: Harry Gregson-Williams (Chronicles of Narnia, Kingdom of Heaven), Hans Zimmer (Pirates), Klaus Bedelt (Pirates, Poseidon), John Williams (Star Wars, Harry Potter), Alan Silvestri (Forrest Gump), Laurent Boutonnant (Jacquou le Croquant)

Howard Shore did a brilliant job with LOTR...but a lot of his previous scores were kind of...mediocre (imho)

Definitely Dario Marinelli. His score for V For Vendetta was a beautifully multi-layered score whose style would've worked wonders for The Golden Compass. Just listen to the track Eve Reborn on the V For Vendetta soundtrack. It's an amazing piece of music.

I'd be wild and consider people like Vangelis who composed and preformed for Chariots of fire and Blade runner or Jonny Greenwood who did There will be Blood/member of Radiohead

they're got an ear for music.

and wholly different from the composer they will use for future films =] so it would have been interested to hear what they would have come up with.

Gustav Holst. Planets Suite is the single best (and first!) concept album in the world.

I like Brad Fiedel, who did the Terminator sound Tracks. Minimal and effective. So much of the Orchestral music these days is completely cliche' I hate to say.
