Dull

No seriously: dull. This is not composing, but smashing a zillion colors o' paint onto a canvas while not caring about the shape of the subject. It's flat, seemingly has no goal, and it has a lot of broken chords - of which one of my composition teachers always said that broken chords are barely ever to be called a melody. It's mostly chords with some stuff around it to soup it up, a bit. But that has more to do with arranging/orchestrating than with composition. It's simply sound, but has no shape. Almost like having a box o' LEGO bricks and placing all of them bricks onto the green floor plate. Never a complete 3-dimensional house.. just endless stuff directly onto the bottom of that floor plate.

Nope. Sorry, can't make more from it. It's completely forgettable. At best it's a demo of what an orchestra sounds like - like we didn't know already. And it isn't even special in itself, there are countless people out there, unknowns, who can do a better job than this.

Not in a million years will Desplat earn a place onto my list o' composers to listen to. And yes, do I hope JW closes the series..

..prolly won't happen.

** (1 * for the composition, 1* for the orchestration)
