this the closest we've got http://xixax.com/index.php?topic=7254.0

and that huge article Pozer posted one time in the CMBB thread detailing how PTA never associates with losers he grew up with or people he worked with before he was big, "PTA never looks back" i think was a quote from one of his spokespeople when confronted with the contents of the article. so there's some bitterness there, mostly from the deadbeats who wanted to ride his coattails.

get pozer to repost that.

I´ve always feel that there are some bits of music in pta´s films that remind me his past movies. Like if  there was a strange connection throug the music. Here are some examples i want to share, if you listen closely to the songs you can feel an escence of the films i mention.
.
In Punch Drunk Love: "He really needs me" min 0:30-0:45 reminds me Sydney
In There Will be blood "H/W Hopes of new fields"  min 0:40 -0:50 reminds me Boogie Nights
In The Master: Duke Ellington´s Lotus Flower reminds me Magnolia, min 0:20 -0:30

And of course many of the music composed for The Master has a big connection with There will be blood. Maybe i´m just crazy or something but i´m sure it could be a delivered choice by pta and i find it really great!

I spent this morning listening to The Thin Red Line score on a loop, thanks to Cinephilia And Beyond, and was struck by the huge similarities between it and the Magnolia score. Not just the tone of it, but certain things almost seem lifted directly.

A quick google found some posts here and there from people who thought the same, even the music editor of TTRL, Lee Scott, who says:

Quote
PM: I especially admire the edit where Zimmer's score segues with Charles Ives in "Journey to the Line." It's brilliant.

Lee Scott: That was my idea. Hans wrote a piece to copy the Ives but it didn't fly. However, that piece appears on the soundtrack album though it wasn't in the film. "Journey to the Line" was the first piece of music Hans composed that clicked for the film. Here is some super music editing trivia: In the film Magnolia there is a cue that copies the transition from Hans' score into the Ives. It must have been in their temp. They copied an edit!


Does this affect my appreciation of the Magnolia score? Not a bit. But it certainly is curious.

You just blew my mind. That is a direct lift.

I actually like the Jon Brion version vastly better, though. Not nearly as repetitive. Listening to "Journey to the Line" I keep waiting for it to resolve or shift and sort of want to pull my hair out.

I fixed your link. The YouTube mod kind of pulled up the first video automatically.

I think this is the one in particular:



Although, doesn't the Magnolia score also have that pizzicato thing elsewhere? Where is that?

Here's the Zimmer:
