Two And Three

The Soundtrack

Recommended Posts

Two And Three

One thing that would be really cool is if Rockstar licensed some of Ennio Morricone's masterpieces for their game. I think that would really add to the atmosphere. It don't have to be his most popular Spaghetti Western themes, but just a few would add a lot. If you don't know who Ennio Morricone is... Here have a read

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ennio_Morricone

 

What do you think of that idea? And do you have any ideas for the soundtrack?

Already happened with Red Dead Revolver. As much as I love Ennio Morricone's masterpieces, I'd rather have an original soundtrack like Red Dead Redemption's.

I never knew it happened. Thanks for telling! Well, I could live without it. But we can both agree, that if that happened it would be cool!

Red Dead Redemption didn't need or use Morricone and had one of the best scores in a video game. I don't see, nor really want, Morricone featured in RDR2 as a result.

 

The piece of score we heard in the trailer sounded great so I'm excited for what they'll do for the rest of the score.

I totally agree with this! The soundtrack to RDR was amazing. I hope they bring back everyone who did the soundtrack from the last game.

I loved the drums at the end. I'll be surprised if they don't bring Woody Jackson back at least, as he's worked on all their latest games as well as RDR (LA Noire, Max Payne 3, GTA V).

 

They might bring James Curd on board as well. He's the guy who does the soundtracks for the latest GTA Online updates, including the Biker Update which I believe Woody Jackson helped him with.

Ergh... Rather not have an electronic artist doing stuff for RDR, imo. I actually don't really like his latest GTA Online tracks. (James Curd, that is - they even brought Take a Day Trip, a trap/electro artist on board now). I'm 99% sure Woody Jackson will be making stuff too however, after all he's one of the main Rockstar score guys. :p

I wonder if Bill Elm will return as well. Does anyone know if he worked with Rockstar since RDR?

Some of you might find this interesting if you've not already seen it - mini-doc on the making of the music of RDR

If they license any music, here's hoping for Dick Dale. His sound is just perfect for westerns for some reason.

100% original music, no licensing, would be a beautiful thing.

Why spend all that time, money, blood, sweat and tears on a game only to use someone elses music

Hell they've got the money to hire Ennio Morricone for the whole title now, but thats good about rockstar they'll always source talent from unknowns if they can.

 

As long as the soundtrack is awesome, I don't mind. Definitely wouldn't mind another José Gonzalez song in another 'travelling' transition like RDR.

I wouldn't mind some Morricone in the background of cutscenes or something like that. Like noticeable, but the main soundtrack is original. Then again, RDR 1 didn't use any of his music, so it could work either way.

I'd like to hear Ennio Morricone in Red Dead Redemption 2, but only if he works with Rockstar Games as a composer and brings to the table something new. That will be amazing!

If Ennio added to the soundtrack I'd rather it were something new to give the world its own atmosphere.

RDR had an amazing score which really set the game apart from anything else.

Woody Jackson also composed the score for GTA V (together with Tangerine Dream and Alchemist & Oh No). I hope he and Bill are composing the score for RDR2 as well. That would be epic.

They probably are coming back. After all they are lead composers there and I don't think any of them left R*.

Woody Jackson and Bill Elm are not employed by Rockstar. They do a lot of other stuff. Woody has worked on the music for Ocean's Twelve and Thirteen and many other Hollywood blockbusters (not necessarily as a composer though).

Forgot about that indeed, Craig Conner was the only one employed by them. But still I think they'll pick them back up.

RDR had an amazing score which really set the game apart from anything else.

Indeed, a very minimal Morricone might work, in the same vein as the minimal soundtrack in RDR added atmosphere. I think he is too epic in scale to work in an interactive video game, however.

 

Morricone works beautifully with the films because of (and adding to) the epic drama. I think it would be a stretch to try to force this over missions or cutscenes, except for maybe one or two big dramatic transitions, like the opening into Mexico in RDR.

 

Slightly, related, I don't think the Tang Dream work added much to GTAV. It was probably originally conceived as a big scale art project like it would be used in Michael Mann's Heat, or the rich urban jazz in Taxi Driver, but again, the musical melodrama would overtake the game if overused. The minimal Tang Dream droning that was left in GTAV, didn't do much for me.

It's pretty much impossible to let us down with a R* soundtrack. Even GTA V's (a game I'm on the fence about) sounded great.

I was very happy with the OST. Morricone's stuff while amazing has been copied and parodied so much that it can sound a little passe. While Rockstar have obviously taken huge inspiration from all the great westerns, Rockstar get to forge this nice original western piece for themselves. Besides, Bill Elm and Woody Jackson did such a great job, they will set the bar for the next generation who will want a RDR sounding soundtrack in their western.

 

 

 

Unless, it's like it's used as Jose Gonzalez's tracks was used like a "intermission" or like a transitional stage that's used as a once-off. Or like toxluv said, brings something new.

Ennio Morricone would be amazing, but Rockstar did a great job on the RDR soundtrack as others have mentioned already. Either way i trust Rockstar to deliver a great score.
