Upcoming Hobbit Trailer To Feature Epic Music From "Quantum" Can't Post

Ringer Spy Stratos has sent us some exciting news concerning the upcoming trailer for The Hobbit.

It seems the trailer will feature a piece from Immediate Music's album QUANTUM, described by them as...
"... our edgiest and most modern Live Orchestra and Choir release yet... a combination of Epic Action and Drama making a grand debut as our most unique hybrid orchestral album for film trailers and advertising... loaded with layers of ground breaking sound design accompanied by dark, edgy guitar melodies combined with our signature sound of lush cyclical strings, huge swelling brass, and massive booming drums."

From Immediate Music's news release:
We can't wait for the debut of the second Hobbit trailer! We can confirm that one of our Epic Dramatic Adventure pieces from Quantum will be featured in the upcoming trailer for Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This classic will follow Bilbo Baggins as he journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves. We are thrilled to be a part of Warner's marketing campaign for this series.

So while it seems highly unlikely that the trailer will feature a Howard Shore composition, it looks like we can expect some breathtaking music nonetheless.

I don't think its so bad some of the louder parts I don't like.

I think I would prefer along with most of you to have some Howard Shore in there.

That's cool ... [In reply to] Can't Post

But what does it have to do with The Hobbit?

Does that mean the trailer will start with a shot of Bilbo down the barrel of a gun, creaping between trees in Trollshaw?

howard shores musc is not written for the trailers (though some pieces are) - its perfect for the film, but for trailers there are better options

If you could choose... [In reply to] Can't Post

Which track do you all prefer? For the new trailer that is.

EDIT: Hmm, hard to find the individual tracks. So which parts of the album demo do you like to be featured?

I like it, though i dont think it fits with the movies. [In reply to] Can't Post

i think it sounds decent enough and will get people pumped to see the movies which is all you want from a trailer.

It doesnt sound like how i imagine ME to sound, especially not compared to Shore but as others have said he will be busy making the score and in a trailer you just want some music to move things along, ranking up the tension and excitement, i think this does that well even if its a bit generic.

Bombastic is Appropriate [In reply to] Can't Post

For a movie trailer. WB already knows our arses are firmly planted in theater seats 24 hours before the movie starts. But in 2 minutes 25 (?) seconds they've got to arrest the interest of non-Tolkein audiences amid the competing noises of other coming attractions being shown. Just allow HS to make it sound purty for the actual movie, that's all I'm askin! Smile

1:00-1:22,
1:35-1:55,
4:23-4:44(this one probably won`t be in the trailer),
and 5:29-5:58

I like epic music(can`t help myself)

Sounds epic [In reply to] Can't Post

and well yes ... I actually want an epic and thrilling trailer full of moneyshots, the teaser was great and felt refreshing as it was more focused on characters but this time I just want my eyeballs treated to some proper eye candy.

Loose the rock-ish parts.. [In reply to] Can't Post

0:18-1:00 sounds suitable indeed. But as much as I like some other bits of the album demo, I don't think they will go for the rock-ish parts (with the electric guitars and drum sets). It just doesn't fit imho.

How cheesy it may sound; something like 4:43-4:59 seems proper and is more like we've heard before in the LotR-trailers.

Capable [In reply to] Can't Post

but for me, the sound is getting a little tired and overused... seems as if coming from a music factory. Maybe they made something extra-special for the Hobbit trailer though.

Depends on what WB wants [In reply to] Can't Post

Most studios just pay to use an existing track, but WB usually pay to have them compose something for them.

I think so too [In reply to] Can't Post

Although there are portions in that YouTube video that don't sound electronic and could go well with the trailer, I have a feeling Interactive Music wouldn't have made such a slip with a new release if they had released the trailer piece.

The word 'epic' is dead [In reply to] Can't Post

Epic used to be reserved for events that were actually epic, like Homer's Odyssey. Now we're using it three times to describe a soundtrack for a movie trailer. It's so overused that people routinely describe mundane events like eating dinner as epic.

RE: Stoutfiles [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree on the use of the word 'epic' nowadays. However, when it comes to music and describing it - 'epic' can be used quite widely. A piece of music can sound epic, but still be quite boring technically.

Viewers of a nervous disposition may be interested to know that your television is off and I am speaking to you from inside your head...

Epic eulogy [In reply to] Can't Post

Angelic

I see what you mean though, and agree. As it relates to this music, at least the sample, it invokes epic-ness -- the same way the colour red invokes "danger" -- but is not itself epic. They've managed to strike on a formula that aids in the invocation of an epic, important, or serious event. But being formulaic, it's starting to feel manipulative and of the flavour "one size fits all" (which seems to be the opposite of epic, generally speaking).

A word I use a lot, whose meaning is lessened of late, is "great." It used to mean, well, great: peerless, exceedingly above average. As a title it was only bestowed on the most exceptional people. Now it means "better than average or not ordinary." It's still a nice designation but hardly enough to write home about.
