With Everly by Bear McCreary is one of the most outstanding composers out there. His training comes from the late Elmer Bernstein ; as you might be aware Elmer was a master craftsman when it came to motifs and so his knowledge passed by. Bear McCreary had his chance scoring Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries along with Richard Gibbs. After BSG was picked up for a season Richard Gibbs stepped out (due to a professional choice) hence we got McCreary on board. The rest is history really, his talent and music has been evolving ever since and now almost 10 years since his inception in the composing world we have his newest cd, Everly.
For those of you who hasnt seen it yet, Everly is an action thriller that revolves around revenge, gangs, prostitutes and did I mention Salma Hayek? So the question that springs to my mind is, what about the score? As previously stated McCreary has evolved a lot since his last forray at the BSG world and the music while making some instruments connections everything you know about him is gone.
I don’t know who you are but I hope you escape this place. I hope that the world turns and things get better and that one day people have roses again. I don’t know who you are but I love you. I love you. Valerie.Inicie esta reseña con las lineas de Valerie escritas en ese papel al cual llegó a sus manos Evey (Natalie Portman), quien con lagrimas en sus ojos se pierde en la oscuridad de las cuatro paredes de su celda. Un nudo en la garganta sentí al ir conociendo todo el relato que vivió esta chica actriz y como poco a poco fue perdiendo todo lo que tenia, y estaba agradecida con la vida al decir que tuvo tres años de rosas hermosas. Pero creo que lo quebrantable de este relato es que a quien fuera, sin conocerlo da su último suspiro de cariño y amor interpretado por mí: –Aún así sin conocerte, déjame decirte que te amo.-
Boy! another year and another Fast and Furious film hit the theaters in March. This time around the score Furious 7 is once again penned by Brian Tyler who had to sit Fast Six since it was filmed in Spain (rumors which are very true by this point of time say that part of the contract filming in Spain stated that it was to be composed by a Spaniard national, come forward Lucas Vidal). Whatever the case for the previous film the music was so random that it hardly went noticed (no score released for this one).
Brian Tyler has made a name for himself , he is an orchestral powerhouse blending well with almost any kind of music style there is out there, sometimes he is a chameleon blending his orchestra with synthetic elements making his scores very close to Remote Control (with quality and actual music wit). Regarding his foray to the Fast and Furious franchise this would be his 4th score, scoring Tokyo Drift back in 2006 which introduced a fast pace string/guitar riff combo track, this as the foundations for his current theme. Next was Fast & Furious in 2009 which toyed with the idea, a little bit aimless but he added some more synths to the mix and the string section became more dynamic giving the score a more versatile approach.
