Quote from: eyeresist on August 13, 2008, 06:30:49 PMMatrix - I don't know who wrote the orchestral music, but I just heard a "sound-alike" in an advertisement and immediately recognised those chromatic brass chords - good stuff.
Quote from: jochanaan on August 13, 2008, 09:31:38 PMBernard Herrmann, The Man Who Knew Too Much. Among the best uses of quasi-classical music in a movie. (Herrmann also wrote the concert music used in the film and directed it onscreen. )
Quote from: Bogey on August 13, 2008, 07:33:50 PMThat would be Don Davis. Who is that you might ask? I do not know, but I have the cd sitting in front of me as I type and I recently tried to sell it back to a used cd shop. Just not my thing. However, if you need a pro copy, I would be more than happy to send it your way (free shipping, of course). Just need a PM with an address. References offered on request as well. $:)
Quote from: eyeresist on August 13, 2008, 11:27:13 PMRe The Stormcloud Cantata, I believe Herrmann did thicken the orchestration for the second version.

Quote from: sound67 on August 15, 2008, 10:52:15 AMIt's certainly very effective in the movie, but it's intrinsic musical quality is bordering on zero. "Good film music must be good music first" Jerry Goldsmith said, and I couldn't agree more. The scores listed above are superb in the movie, and make for musically rewarding listening independent from the films, too - which is, IMHO, what separates the wheat from the chaff.Thomas
Quote from: sound67 on August 15, 2008, 11:03:23 AMYou're kidding.Carpenter's score is simplistic in the extreme. Herrmann's music is indeed based on short motivic cells (as opposed to the longer-winded leitmotives of Korngold et al) and often moves along 2-bar patterns (that's why he was so popular with film editors), but that doesn't mean it simple! The orchestration, the treatment of those motiv cells and their employment in the context of drama are highly sophisticated. There is no comparison between the two.
