Gabriel Leopardi
Hello guys! this thread is to know your favourite film music composers!
This is one of my favourites: Danny Elfman



I also like Hans Zimmer and Howard Shore (Lord of the rings soundtrack)

who is your favourite?

Definetely David Holmes! smile.gif smile.gif



Dogukan,
Gabriel Leopardi
That's a really cool tune! I didn't know him.. In which Movies has he worked?
Todd Simpson
Christopher Young remains my personal Fav. I love his orchestration and his use of dark themes/melodies. Ages ago he did a soundtrack for a movie called JENNIFER 8 which I only learned about a bit ago. It's my Fav movie soundtrack. Killer Cello! Very subtle stuff though.




He has done TONS of movies including big Hollywood Comic Book flicks as well as small movies. The smaller ones are usually more interesting to me in terms of score. BIG scores can be a bit predictable.

Here he is on IMDB with a list of everything he ever did.

I'm not sure, but as I remember, Buckethead composed some movie soundtracks too.
Cosmin Lupu
Most definitely Hans Zimmer and Howard Shore for me as well biggrin.gif

Ennio Morricone in my opinion is the best. plus I would check Nino Rota. But these are a bit different from the ones mentioned above. Should be my age!

He's had a few movies that he had songs in. Saw 2, Mortal Kombat, Power Rangers, and more.



My fav composer would be Danny Elfman he reminds me of Danny Lohner with his style/sound. After that I have to go with John Williams.

Puh, difficult to chose between Zimmer, Desplat, Williams and Shore (wah I LOVE LoR-Soundtrack!!!)
Instead I'll go for Yann Tiersen, very simple, but very touching music!

yeah! I forgot Tiersen because I don't relate him too much to movies but he is an awesome composer. His music is so deep. I could see him here in a live concert and it was really cool. He did a rock concert where he played electric guitar and sang but he didn't forgot to take his accordion and play Amelie main theme. smile.gif

Yep, think he composed for "Amelie" as well as the German film "Goodbye Lenin". Ah, I've seen some vids where he played electric guitar, some nice songs, but he's best when he plays the piano smile.gif I really like this improvisation:

As a devoted star wars fan, my vote goes to John Williams smile.gif And not just for those movies, he's done plenty more!

Ivan Milenkovic
Wow, that's great, I didn't know that song was from that movie, I thought it's a traditional smile.gif
The Uncreator
Harry Gregson-Williams. The soundtracks to Metal Gear Solid are mindblowing

Nobuo Uematsu, don't really need to say more.


Normand Corbeil, Heavy Rain has probably one of the most striking soundtracks, period.


Akira Yamaoka, one of the only people who can make music that can disturb you, and mystify you simultaneously. Brilliant mind.

Apart from the obvious ones like Williams, Zimmer, Shore, et al, there are some other greats IMO.....

John Murphy's score for Sunshine, especially the theme:



...and Paul Haslinger's OST for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Here's one of the tracks....



Both of these guys have influenced me more than any of the big name composers.
