Brian Tyler's Children of Dune is a good example of this, and the same idea can be heard in theatrical series such as The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars , where the composer can maintain and further develop the music over an extended storyline. At first, I wondered if this score would be anything like Sting's music for the IMAX movie The Living Sea , which used a handful of Sting's own songs, rearranged for the film; the rest of the score was composed by Sting directly for the film and had a light jazz sound with its piano and acoustic guitar base.
Blue Planet is nothing like this, which is probably for the best, and the sound of Fenton's orchestrations capture the feel of the ocean. Each of the sixteen tracks on the album is an episode, with its own sound and tone and instrumentation, and a few related motifs thread through many of the tracks. It is orchestral, with sparing electronics, and makes for a rather pleasant listen. The album opens with the title track, which has a majestic tone featuring the brass section, similar to James Newton Howard's Dinosaur.
The motif mentioned above appears here: two notes, with a full, broad sound, dropping a fifth between them. This theme is repeated in "Blue Whale", but slower and is passed between a solo oboe, French horn, and then the brass. And toward the end, the motif is changed to include a few quick notes between the two as they descend. This variation continues in "Thimble Jelly Fish", the in-between notes becoming more of a slow trill.
Toward the end of the album, the motif is varied even more drastically and become inverted: it's the same change of a fifth, but here the lower note starts first and moves up.
The final track returns to the varied motif, then the original from the title track. But again, even with these variations, it only appears in about half the tracks. What this score does very well is capture the specific tone of each episode. The second track, "Sardine Run", opens with a staccato French horn and light percussion, and then the orchestra comes in with the same staccato patterns, and flute riffs in the background. It slows, but maintains the energy, brass, and staccato rhythms throughout.
In times when digital copies are cheaper and quicker to get, album covers have somehow lost their importance as less and fewer customers buy CDs and LPs in the stores. This post attempts to prove exactly that. Music and art go hand in hand. Below we present 35 excellent examples of beautiful, creative and impressive album covers that will certainly inspire you to head down to the local record shop and start browsing through records and labels.
We have tried to address various cover designs and present both CD covers and LP covers from the 60s to s. However, some excellent album covers are missing.
