I love the hints of the theme song; it's what I had hoped the score to the film would be like.
Cool. It was fun to add those touches. I also used a bit of Shanghai Drive from Skyfall.
Edit: And I finally got to use that cimbalom I had. Love the timbre.
The second track is my own creation. I thought the theme was too good to be so short.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service (The Sound of 007 version) (fixed intro):
I think this could very well be my favorite arrangement of OHMSS. Obviously inspired by the 1972 Barry arrangement to some extent, but with stronger, more driving percussion and a faster beat. Pity that it's not available in higher quality.
There's a Bond trailer in which the narrator says "more excitement, more thrills, more spills!"
Tomorrow you're getting the background music to that, if you know what I mean.
I wonder if it's related to his Shaken & Stirred arrangement. He used his version of YOLT from that for the concert.
That one seems different to me.
I'm not a big fan of that arrangement. I find it grating.
In terms of the singers I would say Natacha Atlas was the one I enjoyed the most. Then Björk, then Celeste. Not crazy about any of these performances.
If you have some basic audio editing skills, you can also combine instrument tracks and hear how they sound together. For example, I put this together in a couple of minutes.
Hell, you could even create remixes.
Edit: Almost forgot. I didn't know about this until the other day, but the Tritsch-Tratsch-Polka recording heard in the film is by Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic. From 1976. You can hear it here:
Thanks so much for both of these. Your work with the Bond music has been awesome. Do you have any plans to do any more tracks?
You're welcome, and thanks for the compliment.
I have no plans to do further Bond music at the moment, but the door is always open.
