This is interesting … the result is causing a furore across the internets
- Enhancement of the viewing experience
- Creative Inventiveness
Personally I think the winner is great, courageous even; to have dared create something fresh and quirky.
I’ve admired soundtrack composers for a long time and have a few orchestral tools I just use for samples.
Many years ago I did some TV advert soundtrack work and it was very enjoyable how you can totally transform the narrative and mood by how you apply sound effects and musical colour.
The winner here seems to go beyond just laying on lashing and lashings of typical orchestral motifs we’ve heard a million times and either deliberately is instead in my view very inventive - or might even have been taking a humorous approach. But I think it works! Even if surprising at first it’s catchy and characterful.
Any thoughts? The backlash I’m seeing is interesting in itself. People seem to have a ‘should be’ mentality out there as to what a soundtrack should conform to (which might be reflected in the current contrived, stereotypical sameyness across so many games and movies of the last decade)
