I started this thread because the other one was about whether it was true or not Horner would be scoring it. This is confirmed and a score album is coming out in just a few months on the Sony Classical label. I for one am extremely excited for this score - I just can't wait to see what Horner's musical take on the web-slinger will sound like.
By the way, director Marc Webb tweeted a picture of one of the pages that Horner has composed:

Thoughts?

Horner has always been one of my favorite composers, so naturally I'm very excited to hear what his score is like.

Wonder if it will have a main title theme or some theme you can hang your hat on... something that actually sticks.

Danny Elfman's Spider-Man was one of the first score themes I consciously realized I was a fan of, so it's been one of my favorite themes for a decade now (wow...yeah, a decade since Spider-Man).

But, I'm still totally open and excited to hear what Horner comes up with. I hope it'll be melodic and lush!

I've adapted the score notes into the Geniesoft Overture and it sounds nice, now played by a orchestra it must sound awesome. Seems that the main melody it's on the horns.

I imagine it will have that 'modern groove' that runs through his AVATAR and KARATE KID scores. That's no bad thing btw.

I worship at Horner's altar and actually nurture a fleeting hope for a return of some of the wonder from his earlier scores. The Super Hero genre has so disappointed me of late so I hope he delivers.

All the best!

It's still Marvel, so better be sceptical and surprised.

This is wonderful, especially considering the considerable debate that occurred upon release about whether or not there actually was a "theme" in Elfman's score. I believe it was Ford Thaxton (forgive me if I'm wrong, not trying to slander anyone, just trying to remember old threads) who dared anyone to phone him up and whistle the theme to him, so convinced was he that there was not a theme.

Anyway, I always liked Elfman's Spiderman music, theme or no.

And, as always, I am eager to find out how Horner adapts his danger motif into this new score.

P.S. I am seriously not trying to start an anti-Horner thread. Horner is great at what he does.

Anyone who doesn't hear themes (plural) in Elfman's Spider-Man score must be deaf.

THIS. I always had the two themes that Elfman wrote for both Parker and Spiderman on my head.

oh man I was so excited to click this thinking it had samples. another day I guess. really cant wait to hear this one, and 4 pianos? awesome

and agree about Elfman and his themes, don't get how people miss them but hey they are entitled to their opinion. i'm sure they don't get how people think it has themes. such is life.

To say nothing of the love theme, the Goblin theme (which Chris Young also adapted spectacularly) and the eight-note Doc Ock theme. There's an embarrassment of themes. But, to be fair, a lot of people were expecting "Batman" which clouded things a little.

I'm super stoked about Horner-Man though. He and Elfman are my two favorite composers; short of hiring Elliot Goldenthal I don't think any hiring decision could have geeked me out so much. It will be interesting to compare their approaches.

Agreed.

Yeah, I forgot the love theme. That one is beautiful. Glad that it was used on the third movie even though Young didn't wanted to use it, and Lurie and Debney brought it.

True! I love the main title theme (I can play in on the piano AND hum it by memory), and the other themes work fantastically as well. I don't understand people saying that the scores lack themes. They're there!

But back to Horner's Amazing Spider-Man, I can't wait for it. smile

Once again, compared to what passes as a theme in 2012, Spider-man DOES sound like Batman.

I wonder if the score to Battleship will sound like Star Wars in 2022.
