Thanks! I knew going in that trying to mimic JW would be a failure. I tried to write the way I do normally while keeping the nebulous Jurassic Park "feel" in the back of my mind.I kept hearing snippets of this in the run-up to release and wondered who did it. Fantastic job J - really nice work. Sounds like Jurassic Park, but doesn't sound like you're just trying to copy JW. A tricky tightrope to walk and you nailed it
A.I. is my favorite John Williams score (and one of my favorite scores in general) so it's inevitable some influence would creep in from there.Wow! Congrats Jeremiah!!
"The Science of Creation" - very cool... JW influences circa A.I.? yet your own original voice.
edit: "Raptor Hunt" WOW.
CSS is the backbone of the strings in the score, with Soaring Strings layered in for more presence when needed. There's occasional moments of Ark 2, Albion V, Hollywood Strings, and others, but it's probably 70-80% CSS. A track like "A Careful Step into the World" wouldn't have really worked with anything else.I know you probably used a lot of them but what were some of your go-to samples in the album?
Thanks a ton for sharing your work and also giving us insights on the samples used. Such inspiration to see someone doing A class work with some of the known tools.
