Zimmer/Badelt to write Pirates of the Caribbean instead of Alan Silvestri   Tuesday, May 6, 2003 (11:24 p.m.) 

Personally, I find this choice of having replaced Alan Silvestri by Hans Zimmer & Klaus Badelt to write the score to PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL to be a bad idea. For once that Alan had managed to put his hands on a subject different from his usual comedies, it really is a pity ! You know, as a huge fan of Silvestri's music, I was really eager to hear what the composer could've written with this particular kind of movie, but now all my great expectations regarding the music have almost vanished, unfortunately. Anyway, I hope not be disappointed with the final result provided by Zimmer and Badelt. But with Zimmer on board (my favorite composer ever!), I'm just sure both composers won't give us crap.

Bad news, Hans Zimmer has pulled away from the project, leaving only Badelt to score the film. So far, Badelt has done nothing too great, and is repetitve with techno style composing, echoing throughout his films such as K-19, the Recruit etc.

How does his "techno style" echo through K*19?? As he said himself, Badelt is considered the "classical guy" at MV by his peers. He scored mostly with synths in The Recruit because that's what the director asked for.

Having heard PIRATES, I can assure you that it is mostly orchestra (conducted by Badelt himself) and sounds most similar to the heroic action music in GLADIATOR and PEARL HARBOR (which I think is a good thing). The PIRATES score will appeal to those who were disappointed by the missing music from PH.

According to Soundtrack.net, the score is not conducted by Badelt himself, but rather by Blake Neely. Whereas, on the cover, it's written "Music composed and conducted by Klaus Badelt". Who the hell should we trust?????

no one. media ventures should just write their name at the credits... it should be "music composed by media ventures", not "music composed by hans zimmer" but in the credits there is the "additional music by..."
