That’s great thanks very much Kev! I will get whittling!
Hope you enjoyed your trip.

Currently playing McCreary's DA VINCI'S DEMONS, one of the composer's best works. A few weeks ago, I FINALLY sat down to whittle all three volumes down to one album-lookalike playlist of some 58 minutes that I think works really well. It's relieving that I can finally play this again. Earlier, it felt too overwhelming with the many hours of music.

How come your iTunes background is color coded to the album art?

How come your iTunes background is color coded to the album art?

Ha, ha. Just a coincidence, since the artwork of the album is grey & black to begin with. The background always picks up the colours from the album artwork.

But that's what I mean... my iTunes doesn't do that. Is that a Norwegian special version? big grin
(Not that I really looked into it, I admit.)

Oh, I thought it was common for all iTunes thingies. It's been that way for many years, across several versions. I have iTunes 12 now.

Just as long as we're talking McCreary, I wanted to sneak this one in there. Again, focussing on the calm, but having some action/suspense in there for representation. It's a rich score, so a generous 63 minutes is deserved.

Interesting; I also have iTunes 12, but it doesn't do that. (Haven't dug in depth to see if that can be changed, but if so, it's certainly not in the obvious menus.)

Has anyone done a whittle of the Die Hard 2 and With A Vengeance deluxe editions?

Looking for something around 60 mins.

Yes, I have done 1-disc custom albums for each of these, which I vaguely remembering posting either here or in another thread. I'll see if I can post the tracks soon. I think I got clever with Die Hard With A Vengeance and did a shorter edit of the Taxi Chase cue...

OK, see below, I mainly followed what was on the original 1990 album, supplemented with additional tracks...

Die Hard 2 (Custom Album Edit) - 73:17 (yes, a bit over 60 min)

1. Tai Chi
2. Into The Baggage Area/Baggage Flight
3. General Esperanza
4. Powering Up
5. Marching To The Annex
6. Skywalk Shootout
7. John Picks Up Doll
8. Meeting Esperanza
9. John Punches Esperanza
10. Little Problems
11. Fight With The Sentry/Fight At Church Cont.
12. Shootout And Snowmobile Chase
13. Dick-Head

OK, next up, see below, some customized tracks from what cues I combined using Garage Band... also, I don't believe that I strictly followed chronological order and swapped around some cues for musical variety, such as an action cue to follow a suspense cue...

Die Hard With A Vengeance (Custom Expanded Album) - 71 minutes

1. Johnny Comes Marching Home (End Credits)
2. Goodbye Bonwits
3. Taxi, John & Zeus (I combined the cues Taxi and John & Zeus to make a longer album track)
4. Taxi Chase (edit) (3:49) (I edited the longer cue down to under 4 min... I honestly can't recall what edits I made!)
5. Papaya King
6. Take A-nother Train
7. The Subway Suite (7:16) (I edited the Parts 1 and 2 subway cues together for a more musically lengthy track)
8. Infiltration
9. Bank Invasion
10. Gold Vault (original album track)
11. Panic
12. Waltz of the Bankers (original album track)
13. Surfing in the Aqueduct
14. Hooking the Boat (alternate)
15. Escape
16. Holly & Celebration
17. Oh, Canada!
18. Ode to Johnny

PS - There was an earlier version of this which omitted "Oh, Canada", due to the fact that the same music already exists in Die Hard 2's "Fight On The Wing" and I'm not a fan of repetition, but I think I added it back in for more orchestral fireworks wrapping up this custom album.

In reconfiguring my Michael Giacchino compilations, I spun both discs of his great JUPITER ASCENDING score. It really is a fantastic piece of work, worth more attention, I decided, than the meager two tracks I had included on previous custom compilations. But, for me, I really wanted an abbreviated version of the score, so I whittled it down a 53 minute presentation. See below:

Jupiter Ascending: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Custom Album Edit) - 53 minutes

1. Jupiter Ascending - 1st Movement
2. Jupiter Ascending - 2nd Movement
3. Jupiter Ascending - 3rd Movement
4. Jupiter Ascending - 4th Movement
5. The Shadow Chase
6. The Titus Clipper
7. One Reincarnation Under God
8. Flying Dinosaur Fight with Guts
9. A Wedding Darker
10. Commitment

I haven't played Jupiter Ascending in years, but I remember really liking it and Titus Clipper is stunning.
Thanks for the re-mind Tom, will dig it out for playtime this week.

Agreed about The Titus Clipper track, it might even be considered better than the 4-part "symphonic suite" that opens the album.
