Oh yes, I totally get that they have to give the producers what they want, otherwise they're out of a job. It's just a shame that this current 'ambient/no-theme/drone' malaise is such a stayer in the film music field. But who knows...this might sound like Goldsmith's CASSANDRA CROSSING
Okay...it DOESN'T sound like THE CASSANDRA CROSSING!! It actually reminds me, at times, of SALT and other modern scores by James Newton Howard (SIGNS). Not the action licks, but that constant throbbing/ticking effect, with the synths and percussion and heavy reverb. Also some late years Goldsmith styled suspense and a bit from Williams' WAR OF THE WORLDS. It's VERY modern sounding, so fans of his big, flowery, thematic scores of yore will be disappointed. There's an incessant/repeating two-note motif that dominates almost every track.
With his past few years' efforts, he has most certainly transitioned into the modern score vernacular. It's interesting...ish...but not something I'm gonna return to that much. Any thoughts?
P.S. I also didn't know Yavar had started acting in French films!!
