Horner had nothing to do with the "Rite Of Spring" music in JADE - his score was replaced with that music. The only significant music of Horner's in that film is the opening titles, and any sort of soft synth choir you might hear from time to time.

Funny how NO ONE EVER mentions the similarities between David Arnold's theme to "Independence Day" and Horner's "Legends Of The Fall" - which Horner wrote first two years earlier.

It cuts both ways, Horner haters.
