  • «Elric: The Movie» orchestral soundtrack

    If the movie were to have an orchestral soundtrack, who would you want to compose it?

    "Someone else" might be...
    • David Arnold (Stargate, Die Another Day)
      Elliot Goldenthal (Interview with the Vampire)
      Ennio Morricone (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Malأ¨na)
      Alan Silvestri (Predator, Forrest Gump)
    ... or, indeed, someone else.

    If you vote for "Someone else", please do say who!


    (The limit on the number of options is too low!)

    Or you can vote against an orchestral soundtrack altogether!

    Gr.,
    Ant

    PS. :oops: I'm embarrassed that I hadn't recalled that Michael Kamen had died 18 months ago. I hope no one was upset or offended by this. Unfortunately, I can't edit the poll to remove his name.

            Yep. I'm half kidding - that music wouldn't work too well with an elric movie. still it sounds oriental, primitive, and epic so it probably goes in the right direction.

              Ah... IMDb has the composer as "Shoji Yamashiro"... a different transliteration?

                The guy that did the music for Bram Stoker's Dracula? (Just listening to it again, now.) Like Zimmer or Badelt, but a bit more bombastic... Yeah, I could be happy with that.

                  ... but now that a few others have owned up to who they voted for, I'll tell you that I voted for Philip Glass. I think he has a knack for creating tension in his music in an understated way. Which I feel would be a good fit...

                    Well, not exactly. Saying Geinoh Yamashirogumi is a person is sort of like asking Roger Waters or David Gilmour the question, "By the way, which one's Pink?"

                    Geinoh Yamashirogumi is actually the name of a group of many musicians which was formed in the 70s by Shoji Yamashiro. Roughly translated, "Geinoh Yamashirogumi" means "The Yamashiro Art Group" or something to that effect.

                    Think The Alan Parsons Project but Japanese and with way more performers.

                    I voted for Danny Elfman. Boingo fan from way back, dontchaknow. Elfman's da man.

                      Got it! (You're wokring well tonight, PWV!)

                      But it's orchestral, right? Otherwise the answer belongs in another poll!

                        Right. I should have added that, since Alan Parsons isn't orchestral and therefore my analogy falls flat without it.

                          Gabriel Yared would be one of my top choices.

                            James Newton Howard has done some really great stuff, and he has shown with his collaboration with Zimmer on Batman Begins that he can combine his emotional work with an action movie.

                              He appears to be M. Night Shyamalan's favourite composer! (But not quite so exclusive a relationship as Elfman and Burton!)
