Maybe the composer was told to get that
Pirates of the Caribbean feel into the music.
But this is horrible. I don`t know about people here
but I really like the music from Pirates of the Caribbean,
so I was ........(couldn`t find a word to explain my feelings) when I listening to this...
That was sad. A true rip off...but they do get more and more common these days. And if I would have had to choose a piece of music to rip off, it most certainly would NOT have been PotC...the most predictable melody lines and chord combinations in a long time (Don't get me wrong, I like the work of Klaus Badelt. The Equilibrium soundtrack was awesome; and PotC do serves its purpose, albeit retardedly simple).
Listen to ANY Power Metal-album, and you have the PotC (theory-wise)soundtrack in a box.
Something I've noticed, is that it seems to me that Klaus Badelt and Hans Zimmer sometimes "borrows" a bit too much "inspiration" from eachother, sure they do work together, but c'mon guys...do your own composing ffs
Yeah, works of Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt sounds similar.
But Klaus Badelt, for "The Time Machine" "Constantine" "The Recruit"
"Extreme Days", I think he did a great job.
And about theory simplicity(?), there are lots of great compositions
that are simple in terms of music theory.
Also besides film scores too.(Pop, Game music etc.)
Oh btw, I like Drop Zone too.
Looks like I like compositions with too many notes
But I really like compositions that uses the minimum amount of
notes that the composition needs, and has a nice atmosphere or a
simple nice melody.
But come to a conclusion, what if you were to compose a
piece using only a few notes.
Won`t the possibilities increase, for ones composition
being similar or almost same as the ones that are
already out there, if you try to use less notes ?
(I mean "Accidently" this time. Not purposely like the one at the website)
And back to the main topic.(Sorry..I should of been on topic since I was the one who started this thread.....But had this thought for sometime.)
I didn`t mind if the composer of the BGM just only
used the same chord combinations or rythmic elements to get the same feel,
but the same melody.... thats too much...
