If there was a LOTR and TH remake; who should do the soundtracks? Can't Post

So imagine, that both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies were remade; who would you want to be assigned for making the soundtracks?
Obviously Howard Shore has done a terrific job so far, so this is in no way meant as critique towards him!
But, what artist(s) do you think would be able to make a fantastic soundtrack for these movies too?

I think 'Two Steps From Hell' would do a terrific job, at least for the music related to the battles and wars.

Your thoughts?

Like them [In reply to] Can't Post

I could swear i have heard them before though for trailers/adverts. I particularly like protectors of the earth and black blade.

Though it did make me go and listen to voodoo people - prodigy (pendulum remix) and then that took me to disturbed - land of confusion and down with the sickness and then ultimately lamb of god - laid to rest.

The first 50 seconds of down with the sickness by disturbed is perfect for a battle/war i think.

They are not very middle earthy but for a battle i think you want something angry and intense, or epic like two steps from hell are. My imagination always runs away with me on those tracks above, makes you feel invincible (or indestructible as disturbed would say Tongue)

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

I agree with the battle sequences [In reply to] Can't Post

2 Steps from Hell would be able to do a fantastic job regarding the battle aspect or certain death scenes. I've been addicted to the song immortals for the past couple days :D

"'Ai! ai!' wailed Legolas. 'A Balrog! A Balrog is come!'
Gimli stared with wide eyes. 'Durin's Bane!' he cried, and letting his axe fall he covered his face.
'A Balrog,' muttered Gandalf. 'Now I understand. What an evil fortune! And I am already weary.''

Soundtrack remake [In reply to] Can't Post

It's hard for me to tell for I do not know much film music composer. But surely a John Williams or a Han Zimmer of this world can do something pretty good, no?

Someone who isn't born yet because these films won't be remade for at least 50 to 75 years.

Karl Jenkins a/k/a Adiemus [In reply to] Can't Post

 
I get a strong Middle Earth vibe from this Welsh composer. I've thought so, and have said so, for years. Here are three pieces of his:

Adiemus

In Caelum Fero

Cu Chullain

Well, if we absolutely had to choose another... [In reply to] Can't Post

John Williams did a fantastic job with other action movies (such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones), and, though he may not do justice to the landscapes that Howard Shore illustrated in his work, Mr. Williams has been very successful in creating emotional and epic scores.

But who in their right mind would try to remake these masterpieces? [In reply to] Can't Post

And anyways, you need people of intelligence for this sort of mission... quest... thing.

They wouldn't be remaking the films, though [In reply to] Can't Post

They would be re-interpreting the books, which is the source material.

I hope it is done 20-30 years from now, at the latest. I am frankly a bit tired of PJ's (and New Zealand's) stranglehold on Middle Earth!

Let's see another director, in another location(s), give it a shot before we expire!

I would love to see a new interpretation! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm from NZ and I absolutely love PJ's LOTR but I would still love to see a new take on it in a different part of the wolrd. That is part of the beauty of the books - they can be applicable to anywhere in the world.
