    Fascinating stuff - nice to see some of the thefts you missed that I uncovered in the "Kanno superbitching flame-from-hell thread" have made it into print.

    This is without a doubt, the most musically informed, level headed, sensible dissertation I have ever read on this subject. I can't tell you what a breath of fresh air it is to read this, after a lifetime of suffering "OH MAN IT SO KOOL!!!" and fighting against folk who want to bury you alive (for the heinous crime of snobbery) at the mere suggestion of some musical terminology.

    What a wonderful thought that musicians can discuss music in musical terms, without being hounded away by arrogant (but simultaneously ignorant) hypocrites who claim to love music (and specifically this genre of music) but in reality have no idea whatsoever as to what it's about, how it's constructed, how it affects them emotionally or physically, or that such intricate talent is required in its construction.

    Thank you once again.

    Whilst I think of it, here's another Bolero HOMAGE, this time by Megumi Oohashi, from her score to Mobile Suit Gundam Igloo - complete with adorable mis-transliteration "Borero" on the track title.

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    The rythym belongs to Ravel, but the piece belongs to Oohashi.

    AND it fits in with the remit of this thread, so I don't get in trouble.

    I would love to post some of my own music, except for the following:

    a) I don't wish to derail your lovely thread any further with me blowing my own trumpet.

    b) It doesn't really slot in with the terminology "action music" and since it's all performed by synthesiser at the moment, I'd be violating my own code of "no synth".

    c) I'm pathelogically shy, unconfident in my own ability, and completely terrified.

    d) There are people floating around in this thread who would cut me to shreds and remind me just how poor and amateurish I actually am.

    Thank you

    Even better than the first part.

    I'm really, really impressed. This is not something you see often in this forum or in ANY forum. You seem to be quite interested and addicted to her orchestral music.

    Thank you. As usual comments later (takes some time to digest all that!)

    Oh crap! I remembered there's another I've heard but didn't remember it was this one. Thanks.

    And homage is written with 2 "m" in french, that's why I mispelled it.

    Thanks for the comments. The great thing about Kanno's orchestral music is it's not only a clinic in 20th century orchestration, but it's sort of showing how one might go about lifting ideas from other composers, putting them in new settings, and getting away with it.

    Also, does it make sense when I refer to the NHK orchestral sound for Japanese historical dramas? To me it's a very identifiable sound that certainly comes through in Nobunaga's Ambition and Turn A Gundam. Not so much the other scores though.

    My capitalisation of "homage" wasn't intended to point out your misspelling (which I didn't comment on, as I remembered that it was spelt differently in French, and since it is a word derived from French in the first place, I can hardly complain) - it was meant to emphassise that I thought this piece was a homage, and not a plagiarism.

    Just for the fun, compare the string ostinato from the previous cue Iwasaki Taku - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - Omae no x x x de Ten wo Tsuke!!.mp3 with this one :

    Moross - The Big Country - Main Title

    Good ear, arthierr. It would have taken me 100 years to make the connection.

    Here's something I heard last night in Giant Robo that gave me a lol:

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.] (from Giant Robo OST 5 track 11)
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.] (from The Pelican Brief)

    The rest of the track steals bits from Sneakers as well, but that piano part was just too awful not to point out. This is what happens when plagiarism goes wrong.

    WOW! Well, in a sense it's not quite a surprise given the fact Amano heavily borrowed from others in this score. Anyway it's only justice that an occasional plagiarist (Horner) is himself plagiarized.

    Ok, to play a bit to the "obvious plagiarism" game, here's my move :

    David Arnold - Independence Day - The Darkest Day.mp3 (1996)
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    Richard Jacques - Headhunter OST - Final Conflict.mp3 (2001)
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    Funny, isn't it ?

    Touché! I've already heard this before (but in fact her borrowings are so numerous that you easily forget them).

    But Richard Jacques has at least the decency to admit that he has been influenced by David Arnold's music. See this interview where he quote Arnold as one of his main influences.

    If I happen to find some other BIG HORRIBLE plagiarisms, I'll post them, just for the fun.

    Okay then. Here's something that fits the nature of the thread:

    A collection of composers trying to compete with Williams's amazing battle music from Hook.

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.] - Young Indiana Jones by Joel McNeely and Laurence Rosenthal (I'm betting it was McNeely who did this track)

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.] - Around the World in 80 Days by Trevor Jones (WTF, some of this is just too close, but he wrote The Dark Crystal so all is forgiven)

    Sorry guys, but perfection can not be attained by just anyone:
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.] - The Ultimate War from Hook

    Wow, Hook with one note difference in the melody, and played by a crappy orchestra! Fantastic stuff! McNeely without a doubt -- Rosenthal doesn't go in for that kind of flagrant thievery...

    As for the Jones, it's not quite as bad... It's bad, but rather than stealing the whole car (as McNeely did) he just stole the bodywork, interior, and wheels, leaving behind the engine standing precariously on a couple of bricks at the roadside...

    Ha ha ha. The Mcneely one is quite funny. But knowing his connections with Williams, maybe it's a kind of (unsubtle) homage to the master. 3:05 comes straight from "Belly of the steel beast" from Indy 3.

    Concerning Jones I suspect he was just strongly asked to stick to the temp track.

    I have a good one to upload this night...

    Here's another good one :

    Hayato Matsuo, Toshiyuki Watanabe - Shenmue Orchestra Version - Flag of the lions
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    Jerry Goldsmith - First Knight (Complete) - Night Battle
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    The plagiarized part is very obvious when it comes.

    Can't talk about First Knight and plagiarism without mentioning this:

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    There are other Vaughan Williams works where he uses this motif, like Flos Campi, but the 6th symphony uses it as its main idea.

    And the Klingon theme from Star Trek, as we all know, comes from the 4th.

    Goldsmith = Vaughan Williams fan.

    I like the pirate like theme going on here

    Adding in environmental sounds is a great touch here! Sorta reminds me of a song from Two Thrones.


    What do you people think?

    Very good , epic, strongly rhythmic cue. Nice find, thank you. Just to solve the mystery, where does it comes from ?

    For all orchestral fans here, I wanted to point out that I've just uploaded a great new score in the download links section, :

    ZERA: IMPERAN INTRIGUE OST

    If you like most of the music posted here, you'll adore this one.

    More to come!
