    You think? When you're in your house alone at the darksome nights, try the following music:

    Again from the "Biohazard Orchestra Album", but the piece is not orchestral. It's the theme "At Deep Mountains and Dark Valleys, the Night Begins", the music that plays on the first floor of mansion in Biohazard/Resident Evil 1. The piece is arranged for pipe-organ solo, and performed by organist Aotani Michiko. It's really scary!

    Cool! Some classical! Thanks my friend, I'm less a classical guy, so what you're adding with your posts perfectly complements my own posts to reach the whole spectrum of orchestral action.

    I'd be happy to listen to your favourite action music if you have some. I'm eager to discover new music and new composers.

    I'm sure my song list is going to seem pretty crazy because of all the variety; but please don't pay attention to the song names, simply listen to them. I guarantee you'll enjoy them if you like this style.

    Weeell, it's our quiet period... I have to be on call just in case, but there's not a lot to do at the moment, so I have to stay awake somehow.

    Scary Music Pack:
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    I've actually taken a slight liberty with the title - I don't think it's all necessarily "scary" music - but it's unsettled, dark, and fully orchestral...

    Jerry Goldsmith - Alien - (It's A Droid)
    The National Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Lionel Newman

    Well, what can I say? Recognised as one of the most masterful of horror scores of all time, Goldsmith's Alien really does have it all - ear-shattering full blown terror, wet-your-pants suspense, and even a beautiful warm, romantic theme to represent the ship. This cue isn't romantic, but it's definitely the other two...!

    Elliot Goldenthal - Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (Toccata And Dreamscapes)
    The London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Dirk Brossť

    A lot of people hated the movie, and a lot of people were annoyed that Nobuo Uematsu wasn't approached regarding the score. Goldenthal, certainly Hollywood's most adventurous, avant-garde, individually unique composer, penned a score which was massive beyond all belief. It is now regarded as one of his finest works. This cue is brutal, atonal, dissonant, highly experimental, and incredibly unsettling. Expect pure, unadulterated chaos, performed by 100 of the world's finest musicians, recorded in one of the world's most loved studios.

    Bernard Herrmann - Vertigo (Prelude and Rooftop)
    The Royal Scottish National Orchestra, conducted by Joel McNeely

    Hitchcock's masterpiece, and also Herrmann's - the score to Vertigo has become one of the most easily recognised pieces of music ever written for cinema. It is also one of the most effective. Herrmann's modernist approach, eclectic orchestrations, and meticulous classical education come together to make a score that is romantic, tragic, terrifying, and suspenseful - all at the same time.

    Howard Shore - The Fly (The Ultimate Family)
    The London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Howard Shore

    The score that introduced Shore to the mainstream - and what a score, with a haunting main theme, stunning neo-gothic orchestrations (provided by Homer Denison) and a superb performance by the London Philharmonic. This cue is from the film's grisly climax.

    Randy Miller - Hellraiser III (Emergency Room)
    Studio Orchestra, conducted by Randy Miller

    Miller's work on the third Hellraiser film is actually very Goldsmithian in its approach (listen to those continuously off-beat rhythms you just can't anticipate) which is never a bad thing. This score is nowhere near as fine as Christopher Young's first two scores in the series, but is nevertheless a solid piece of work, and contains some wonderfully muscular orchestral music.

    Jerry Goldsmith - The Omen (The Demise Of Mrs Baylock)
    The National Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Lionel Newman

    Yes, I love Jerry, I admit it. He's my favourite composer - undoubtedly, and my biggest influence. He deserved far greater recognition for his fifty year career of unadulerated excellence - The Omen earned him his only Academy Award (despite seventeen nominations) and, even after thirty years, has lost none of its power or impact. Notable for its use of the devil's tritone (a musical chord that creates a natural dissonance - in centuries past, composers were forbidden from using it in religious music, lest it evoke Satan - hence its eventual nickname) it's one of the finest - and scariest - compositions ever penned. The Omen was a low budget picture, and so desperate were the producers to enlist Goldsmith's services, that they actually requested a budget extension of 20th Century Fox, explicitly so they could afford him.

    Jerry Goldsmith - The Final Conflict - Omen III (The Bloodling)
    The National Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Lionel Newman

    Goldsmith was back for Damian - Omen II in 1978, with a score largely similar to the first one. However, when he returned a third time to score The Final Conflict, he adopted a vastly different style. Goldsmith's technique was in a state of flux around the late seventies and The Final Conflict is a wonderful "hello" to his early eighties style - it's difficult to describe, and anyway, why talk about it when you can listen to it?

    Enjoy!

    Great stuff, Cheef. We can feel the hardcore collector.

    May I ask you a favor ? As I'm much interested in your opinion and tastes, I'd like to listen to a compilation of what YOU like in the orchestral action style. Could you post a selection ? And also a few comments to explain why you choose this ?

    I've been lurking this thread (and these forums -- great place to come for music) for a while, on and off, waiting for someone to mention a soundtrack that has bits that fit perfectly with this thread's theme, IMO (even though I haven't had the opportunity to listen to any of it yet ).

    Is anyone here familiar with Masamichi Amano's work on the nineties anime OAV Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Stood Still?

    Excellent series, excellent music -- people run around touting it as one of the great accomplishments of anime music, supposedly.

    However, the only mp3s I have are oldish 128k rips... But I might throw up some of what I have anyways if there's interest.

    Haha, to be honest I'm a bit nervous about posting this because I'm worried you guys will be all "whoa that guy is a total hack he stole from such and such" and ruin my enjoyment of the series and score.

    No need to be nervous. The principle of this thread is this :

    Do you have some orchestral action YOU really enjoy ?

    Do you want others to enjoy it as well ?


    If so please post what you like, it will be much appreciated. This thread has a rather good frequentation, so what you'll post here will be well noticed.

    And yes Giant Robo is great. There are many fans here. Please go ahead!

    Edit : also I like it very much when people posting explain why they choose such and such cues. I enjoy reading comments.

    Remarkable, my friend.

    Vertigo : This piece is a movie music classic among movie music classics. Horner stole 1:04 for KRULL (but with talent). A magnificient piece.

    Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within : one of my favourite scores. Pure orchestral grandeur as it's been rarely heard in movies. Totally mind-blowing.

    The Fly : very nice horror piece, the rumbling of the timpanis during almost the whole cue induces a primal fear.

    Emergency Room : a rare one, nice dig! There's a strange sound at the beginning sounding like a mix between a scream and some hi strings. Really chilling and disturbing.

    Goldsmith : your comments are good enough, no need to say more. Excellent choices (I would have added Poltergeist, though).

    There's another coming tomorrow ! Be ready !

    In fact I found so many interesting horror/action cues that I divided them in 3 packs. I'll post them one at a time.

    By the way, it was a REAL pleasure to dive into my collection to look for specific cues.
