[Nieuws] Het resultaat van Fuck This Jam is ruim 130 games [UPDATE: dit zijn de 10 beste]

Control-online - Mon, 11/19/2012 - 15:58
Opvallend veel voetbalgames (American Football eigenlijk) bij de submissions van Fuck This Jam. Gamedesigners zijn blijkbaar geen grote fans van lichamelijke beweging. Veel parodieën ook, waarbij Dear Estaban een eervolle vermelding verdient. Maar ook veel serieuze pogingen om binnen een gehaat genre een leuke game te maken. Meer dan 130 games werden ingeleverd voor het … Read More ...

Control-online - Wed, 11/14/2012 - 12:52
Herinneringen worden opgeroepen door beelden, door geuren en door… geluid. Met dat laatste in het achterhoofd ontwikkelde een trio Nederlandse studio’s met steun van het Gamefonds het spel Remembering. Zoals we gewend zijn van de games van Monobanda (denk aan Bohm en Licht op Hout) bevat het spel ook dit keer geen plot of helder gameplay-doel. … Read More ...

Geweld hoort niet binnen een relatie, daar is iedereen het wel over eens. Toch? Nou — niet helemaal, zo ontdekte Coventry University (UK) tijdens een inventarisatie naar dating geweld onder jongeren.

For those of you who happen not to know Chance Thomas from the side which is of most interest to us, namely composing music for video games, some catching-up is in order. He is an author who speaks of his music with genuine enthusiasm and passion, which, contrary to what one might think, is not the norm in the industry. A lion's share of his work lies in music for the MMO

The Apotheosis of Austin Wintory

Whilst examining the phenomenon of the Journey Original Soundtrack, one might ask themselves whether it was not the game's nature that contributed to such a success of the album. The game virtually lacks any other narration apart from music – does this not set the composer free of all the boundaries characteristic of interactive entertainment? Indeed,

CineMusic Filmmusic and Soundtracks - Tue, 04/20/2010 - 20:57

Academy Award-winning composer Rachel Portman will be feted with BMI’s Richard Kirk Award for career achievement at the performance rights organization’s Film & Television Awards on May 19.

Portman will be the first woman to be honored with the award since the org started giving it out 25 years ago.

She also was nominated by the Academy for her music in The Cider House Rules (1999) and Chocolat (2000). Her other credits include Nicholas Nickleby, The Joy Luck Club and The Manchurian Candidate plus such TV pics as HBO’s Grey Gardens.

Portman joins such previous Kirk Award honorees as John Williams, John Barry, Lalo Schifrin, Danny Elfman, Alan Menken and Mike Post.

Additionally, New Orleans musician-composer Terence Blanchard will receive BMI’s Classic Contribution Award for his efforts in music education.

Event, hosted by BMI president/chief operating officer Del Bryant and VP of film/TV relations Doreen Ringer Ross, will be held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. – Christopher Morris

That sinking feeling: LLL enlarges and poseidon adventure

CineMusic Filmmusic and Soundtracks - Tue, 04/20/2010 - 18:46

This one loomed over the collective film music nerdom like a humming behemoth from space, but La-La Land has finally announced they are releasing a whopping 5,000 copies of David Arnold’s sci-fi action score for (am-I-the-only-person-who-notices-how-shitty-this-movie-is?) Independence Day as a 2-CD set, effectively more than doubling the original album (hurriedly issued by RCA Victor back in 1996, when I still had hope for the future). The cat was essentially out of the bag thanks to Mr. Arnold, who in the middle of sending out a barrage of nonsensical messages into the Twitterverse, revealed La-La’s master plan. Faster than a virus can be uploaded from a Mac to an alien spaceship, word spread and mouths foamed.

As if releasing one calamitous blockbuster score on the same day wasn’t enough, the La-La-lers have also announced they are re-issuing in complete stereo John Williams’ The Poseidon Adventure. You may remember that Film Score Monthly first issued this title (thought not entirely in stereo sound) which quickly sold out. If you were angling for one on eBay, put a stop on that PayPal transfer and order up what is promised to be a glossed up edition. Read on for the blurbage…

In association with Twentieth Century Fox and Sony Music’s Custom Marketing Group, La-La Land Records presents the world premiere release of David Arnold’s complete score from the 1996 Twentieth Century Fox sci-fi blockbuster motion picture Independence Day, starring Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Mary McDonnell, Bill Pullman and Randy Quaid, directed by Roland Emmerich. Arnold’s epic, sweeping orchestral score sends the listener, along with the film’s large scale sci-fi action and broad human drama, into the cinematic stratosphere. Produced by Nick Redman & Mike Matessino and Didier C. Deutsch, edited and assembled by Mike Matessino, and mastered by Mark G. Wilder and Maria Triana, this 2 CD Limited Edition set features over two full hours of astounding film music, (with more than 70 minutes of previously unreleased material) including the complete score, along with a generous helping of Bonus Tracks. In-depth liner notes by Dan Goldwasser features comments from the composer, co-writer/producer Dean Devlin and others. This is a limited edition of 5000 Units.

First time entire score is presented in STEREO! Presenting the premiere stereo release of John Williams’ classic score to the legendary 1972 Twentieth Century Fox adventure film The Poseidon Adventure, starring Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Shelly Winters and Red Buttons, produced by Irwin Allen and directed by Ronald Neame. Williams’ epic orchestral score expertly intertwines the film’s examination of heroism and tragedy. Produced by Nick Redman and Mike Matessino, mastered by Daniel Hersch, and remixed and sequenced by Mike Matessino, this superb-sounding special limited edition release features never-before-released Bonus Tracks, including the film versions of “The Morning After”, source cues and alternate versions of the main title. In-depth liner notes by Jeff Bond take you behind the scenes of the film and its music. This is a limited edition of 3000 Units.

For this release, the 2″ 24-track tape containing the original 35mm 6-track mag was transferred into Pro Tools, and restored and mixed with the advantages of another decade’s advance in sound processing technology.

Powell, Beltrami and Mastodon

CineMusic Filmmusic and Soundtracks - Fri, 04/16/2010 - 18:46


New York Magazine wonders where the trailers and promos for Warner Bros. upcoming comic-book adaptation Jonah Hex are. Detailing the troubled production, they focus almost entirely on the situation surrounding the music. Director Jimmy Hayward ported his Horton Hears a Who! composer John Powell over to Hex, to collaborate with heavy metallers Mastodon.

“The band had been brought in by Hayward to collaborate on the score with Horton’s composer John Powell back in September 2009. However, the re-shoots and subsequent reediting meant Powell, who was already booked for Tom Cruise’s Knight and Day and Doug Liman’s Valerie Plame pic Fair Game, had to leave. “There was no animosity,” says Hinds. “He was just like, ‘If you haven

Kick-Ass Soundtrack: Complete Listing

CineMusic Filmmusic and Soundtracks - Thu, 04/08/2010 - 02:39


Matthew Vaughn’s profane and violence-loaded comic-book adaptation Kick-Ass is all out of bubble-gum on April 16th, when it takes names at the North American box office. Accompanying Vaughn’s indie-geek-cred visuals is an original score with contributions from no less than four composers (John Murphy, Henry Jackman, Marius De Vries, Ilan Eshkeri–who scored Vaughn’s Layer Cake and Stardust), and an additional cue from Danny Elfman (“Walk To Rasul’s”)! There’s a mix of classical, contemporary pop-punk, electronic, and standard ballads (Elvis singing “Battle Hymn of The Republic”!). The soundtrack album, while featuring exactly no score material, is fairly comprehensive. 14 of the songs that appear in the film are included and are available digitally on iTunes (from Polydor) and on CD at Amazon.com from Phantasm Imports.

Cinemusic presents the complete song listing from the film:
