I was eight years old when I saw Star Wars. The first time I saw that opening I knew my life had changed.
Entered this thread to post almost exactly what you both postedAt the beginning of The Shining the music playing while watching an arial view of the car heading through the mountains just put you in a mindset that you were about to go on a long strange trip.
I've loved Zbigniew Preisner's score for The Secret Garden for years but had never heard his other work until now. Gonna have to check out more from him!This piece from Zbigniew Preisner's score for Kieslowki's The Double Life of Veronique. I first saw the film around 1993 on VHS and, while I didn't quite get it at the time, it was (Irene Jacob's luminous double performance aside) the music which compelled me to revisit it shortly afterwards and the film has remained in my top five ever since.
I feel that Preisner doesn't get the recognition he deserves sometimes, and that may be because of his own reluctance to do Hollywood, but his music, especially his Kieslowski scores, make me feel a certain indescribable way few others manage.
Just read that this piece will also be used in a special episode of Euphoria, so maybe he'll win some new fans!
That's a great scene and score! I wonder if that scene inspired the similar flying scene that appears early in The English Patient, which came out 11 years later?The Flying over Africa scene in Out of Africa.....
Thank you for pointing out the barrel roll! I love how subtle, yet effective it is!That's a great scene and score! I wonder if that scene inspired the similar flying scene that appears early in The English Patient, which came out 11 years later?
Gabriel Yared introduces some themes that will come back later in the film in a more significant way. I think the chord that lands at 0:32 when Kristen Scott Thomas looks up is significant. I love how he scored the barrel roll from 0:46 to 0:55. I love this whole score and the diegetic music too. The film is a majestic roller coaster of emotion. YMMV
I love how the ostinato with the lopsided meter gives the feeling of something "regular" while also making you feel like something is off.In Truman Show, at the end when everybody is searching Truman. Ed Harris decides to rise the sun sooner, and it rises instantly. Great moment of cinema, one of the greatest, and the music by Philip Glass used here is perfect for this scene, while it was originaly written for an other film (Powaqatsi). So much emotion the first time I saw this moment !
The exact same music is used sooner on the film, when Truman begins to understand that its world is strange, and it already has a great impact. Maybe the impact of the music the second time (search scene) is even better due to the fact we can expect the notes, the music ?
I'm not particularly fan of the music of Glass or this kind of loops, but I think it fits perfectly here.
Thanks for this! I recently had a video chat with a cousin of mine and on that call he recommended me to play Abzu. It will be my next purchase!When it comes to games, I also loved Abzu and Journey.
The music accompanies the game with all experiences and moments really well and adjusts dynamically for many elements. Also, the soundscape and instrumentation is pretty unique and interesting.
That's an odd issue and I can imagine it's really annoying. Still, you could experience the music and maybe someday in the future, you can again experience the game without those troubles.
