While I'm also delighted about Paradise/Can't Buy Me Love, this thread also deserves a few more posts... they'll both be bought by me!

What sort of name is iZLER? Sounds like something from Apple, like iMAC or iPAD.
Should we call his compositions iTUNES?

I am really tired of Hollywood gimmick names. This one really stinks. I mean, you are a composer, you do not really need a cool name. Maybe at one time this was required in Hollywood, still mostly only for actors. And what is the point of the lower case i? Gimmick

My amusement at two people complaining about a nom de plume, themselves using nom de plumes, cannot be overstated.

His actual name is Fil Eisler (I SEE WHAT HE DID THERE) so perhaps he just wanted to prevent people mispronouncing his last name? Who knows, who cares? It's good, effective music and I'm happy a CD exists for me to buy.

His name is pretty ridiculous but that wouldn't stop me if it sounded like quality music. Sounds like typical modern action music to me with a few slower parts. It continues the trend of really slow quotes of themes that I find quite boring.

Yeah,agreed.I don't what was wrong with people using an alias instead.

The difference is that I am not putting out a product here. If I put out a book, score or film I would not call myself 'ado'. So the amusement that I use an alias and talk about a composer using a gimmick name is itself pretty silly. The other point is that almost everyone here uses an alias, for lots of reasons, to remain insulated from whack jobs etc. The few people I have done trades with know my name.

Since iZLER is known, has a agent, a wiki page, etc, he is not anonymous, not does he want to be.

I don't really care what an artist calls him or her self. Some go with their birth names, others with something they think sounds cool. I find the stupid track titles (Batman Begins, Nu Trek) far more annoying.

It works for him. What's the problem? Why look so hard for annoyance?

Fake names are common in show business. Many feel they need a catchy name to cut through the clutter, with hundreds fighting for the same few jobs. The co-creator of "Will & Grace" is a guy named Max Mutchnick… but he was born Jason Mutchnick. He thought "Max Mutchnick" sounded like a comedy name, and that's how he wanted to present himself. Composer Joey Newman's father's last name is Carollo. He used his mother's name to associate himself with the Newman family of composers (of which he is legitimately a descendant). Frank De Vol often used just "De Vol." What of it?

I am less bothered by using a maiden name, family name, than the single word name. It lacks dignity. There is a very small line between cool and tacky, and one word names, GAGA, often fall into silly and tacky. Beyond that, be proud of your proper name. So you are saying I am really really wrong to not like single word names. ?

Fortunately, he didn't call himself iMAX. People would have confused him for a big screen writer rather than TV.
Actually, I think iZLER sounds more of a comedy name than Max.

And Joseph Mullendore used to bill himself as "Mullendore."

None of which has anything to do with the actual music...

In his defence, the show itself isn't the kind of thing that calls for fast-paced music - things blowing up are the exception rather than the rule on Revenge. That said, the album doesn't look like it's in episode order at all...

No, of course not. Like what you like. I'm just saying that I think there are legitimate strategic reasons for somebody to choose to use a brand name, as iZLER has chosen to do.

I prefer this name to Junkie XL, composer of this week's "Paranoia" and next year's "300: Rise of an Empire." I have to assume that's a two-word name you're not loving?

Now you got me scared. Some guy named Junkie XL is scoring 300 Rise of an Empire? They would be better off bringing back Tyler Bates.
