In addition, members of the Orchestra have featured on numerous film soundtracks including those for such major motion pictures as Babe, IQ, Hotel Sorrento, Six Degrees of Separation, Babe II Pig in the City and The Dish. The MSO has also recorded music for a number of computer and console-based games.
Referring to my own "What Goldsmith scores are left to expand?" thread, apparently none other than Dan Goldwasser has confirmed that at least a substantial amount of Goldsmith's score to this WAS recorded! Now the tapes would just have to be found and Varese can release it!
Yavar, from that thread you linked (and my own quote): "He also said Goldsmith walked out mere weeks before the recording was to happen and that Jerry wrote 90% of the score AND that they cut a LOT of violent stuff from the film."
There was nothing recorded. There are no tapes to be released. Just 90% of a written score.
(Incidentally, the information came up in conversation with Goldsmith when James Cromwell visited the scoring session for THE SUM OF ALL FEARS. Full circle!)
Prometheus, with your Jerry Goldsmith recordings going on, please do this.
Are we saying JG preferred a violent movie about a cute pig over the lovely little film that got released? Sounds a bit odd to me as JG preferred nicer movies to score over the ones he often got.
Anyone who refers to RoboCop as "a hoot" (as Goldsmith did in either the Total Recall documentary or his Hollow Man commentary; can't remember for sure) must have been at least okay with violence. The man obviously did like working with Verhoeven after all. Alex North basically gave The Sand Pebbles to Goldsmith when the film proved too violent for his own sensibilities. And various other anecdotal evidence!
