I very often listen to the older filmscores at
For me I found out that in the past they were more musically and I can learn many things about orchestrating and using the right classical instruments for this and that by listening.
The new generation, taiko drums and taiko drums and taiko drums... are great too, sure, but I am missing somewhat there.....!
In the past we had only the instrumets to discribe a filmscene. Now we have all the newest stuff, effects, synthesizers, loop-players and so on... .
Will the musicality by using these new techniques lose wealth more and more?
Sure, there are many great filmscorecomposers today, but when I look German Television and listen to the "music", the most filmscoretracks sound same and less musically.... .
The first reason I think is that many filmproducer are wanting the sound from the latest well known film, so the composers are copying all together and sound same... .
What do you think?
