It did suit the whole "lighter" tone of 4.

The score for insurrection sounded a bit like us marshals as well. The only thing i like on that soundtrack was the motion picture theme at the end. It just sounded more grand and bombastic that it ever has. I liked it. But i do think thatGiaccinois a great choice for this film. I have heard more of his work in the past week or so and it is sometimes breathtaking (cloverfields end theme is outstanding and with the choral sounded like the origanal star trek theme)

But i would still love to see or hear Hans tackle a Star Trek film. I do think he would make a great job of it.

Indeed, if Cloverfeild is any indication, it will be great.

I assume that the trailer score is from MG's pen (mouse). If that is the case, I don't like it.







































































I LOVE it!!!!!!

I really didn't care for IV's soundtrack. Sure, Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner often touch upon some of their themes throughout several different movies (You can hear James Horner's similar themes in Star Trek III, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, Commando, Red Heat, etc.)

But Leonard Rosenman....sorry, I just didn't care for his themes at all.

Star Trek IV's theme was pretty much the same as the end titles when he composed for the animated "Lord of the Rings", and you even hear some of those themes at the end of RoboCop 2.

Yechhh!


Now, to get back on topic:

For Trek XI, I would like to hear an Ottman-esque styled redux of the late, great Jerry Goldsmith's Star Trek The Motion Picture them....but I would also like to hear something more percussive, the way Trevor Rabin composed for Armageddon....and definitely a Hans Zimmer styled theme.

Sorry, it's been reported that the music for the TREK trailer is from Bryan Tyler's CHILDREN OF DUNE score.

But I still expect MG's score to be excellent.

I'm looking to hear something akin to Mission Impossible III: A fresh score with new themes that still evokes the original series themes.

If the movie is as fast paced and action-packed as it appears, then the score is likely to have a lot of adrenaline-pumping action scoring.

Hopefully, it will have a slight hint of the Original Series episodic scores.

That "Springy" instrument is called the Blaster Beam or Beam by other names.

Here is a good rundown of what the instrument looks like and a bit of history behind it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANrzFt3rIkM

It's still used by Hans Zimmer every now and then although in limited form. It was more popular back in the 80s when film scores were more experimental and a lot of synthesizers were more common even though the beam is a acoustic string instrument. Films like Battle Beyond the Stars, Meteor, The Black Hole and Star Trek II used the beam quite a bit.

I love this sound and i wish there was a software version based on it.

I have to say Goldsmith was my favorite trek composer. Horner comes second with his high impact brass sweeps and percussion. Goldsmith though loved to use exotic instruments and loved to experiment while still having his own epic styles of brass and string essembles. We will see how this new guy stands up to the challenge.
