Want it for sure!

2. Disinvited - February 6, 2013

Dennis McCarthy gave me some good info onc on roblems composing for DS9

3. Disinvited - February 6, 2013

#1. Eliasj – February 6, 2013

congrats on first post.

#2.

onc=once
roblems=problems

4. Ensign RedShirt - February 6, 2013

I’m not picking this up, mostly because DS9 isn’t a fave series of mine, but I do want to vouch for the quality La-La puts into their releases. The TOS set is epic and such a labor of love, as are many of their other releases, Trek or otherwise.

If you dig this music, rest assured they’ll do an amazing job on it.

This concludes my unsolicited endorsement…

5. Uberbot - February 6, 2013

Bleech!! “Sonic wallpaper”!!

Aside from the Main Title, I couldn’t hum a single cue from this series (or TNG seasons 4-7, Voyager or Enterprise) if you held a fully charged phaser to my head.

Pass.

6. rm10019 - February 6, 2013

5 – Do we all get a chance to hold a fully charged phaser to your head to test this theory!?

7. Radioactive Spock - February 6, 2013

I’ll be getting it. I saw the Visitor and Call to Arms and made the decision. Some great music in both. I agree that pre-season 5 TNG is when the real theatrical style composing ended, but after that there are still some pretty good pieces scattered throughout. I think they were limited by how Berman wanted things done.

8. SherlockFangirl - February 6, 2013

*breaths in the smell of it*

Ah, to be a dirt poor college student!

9. Disinvited - February 6, 2013

#5. Uberbot – February 6, 2013

I can’t speak for the other composers but McCarthy explained to me in the chat forum of an online interview about why his music sounded like that. TPTB purposely ordered his stuff to bland. When they commissioned him to do the second version of the theme (because of the Dominion War?) he had a dickens of a time with them constantly requesting that he make it less “interesting” and redo it. He said this in response to a question of mine as to why it feels like his music is missing something. Answer: because it was. TPTB remixed it themselves. He sent me to a source of his last submission to compare. They butchered it.

I think you described it best TPTB wanted sonic wallpaper.

10. Disinvited - February 6, 2013

#4. Ensign RedShirt – February 6, 2013

I would be more interested in a collection that included the composers desired mixes of their compositions and the ones that aired.

11. Uberbot - February 6, 2013

#6 — HAHAHA!! You funny!!

12. Browncoat1984 - February 6, 2013

It’s a shame really. Look at the work done on shows like Stargate, Lost, Fringe, Battlestar Galactica, etc. The music is so much a part of those shows. It adds character. Even the older Babylon 5 did a better job with music than Trek did. Wish I could go back in time and knock some sense into TPTB re: music – imagine how much better even the worst episodes we got towards the end of Voygaer/Enterprise might have been if it had a soundtrack like Lost, Stargate or Battlestar.

13. Uberbot - February 6, 2013

#9 — I sure don’t hold McCarthy responsible. I know he’s a great composer. He did some excellent work during the first year of TNG and his work on Generations is admirable.

I totally believe what he said about TPTB because that’s why Ron Jones lost his job on Trek. It’s really unfortunate that the composers were not allowed to do what their musical intuition told them rather than these people who knew nothing about dramatic TV scoring.

They had a great thing with these talented composers and they basically “drew a mustache on the Mona Lisa”!

Sad.

Well, we have three to four great years of TNG Trek music — then it went pot…

14. Uberbot - February 6, 2013

#12 — Great TV scores certainly do add character. I guess that’s one reason why I like sci fi series from the 60s and 70s…those shows had that character you speak of.

15. DonDonP1 - February 6, 2013

Cool! I thought the collection would include Dennis McCarthy’s score to the DS9 pilot movie. Oh, well, c’est la vie. In other words: that’s life.

16. Disinvited - February 6, 2013

#12. Browncoat1984 – February 6, 2013 , 14. Uberbot – February 6, 2013

Agree with you both.

One thing I dream about is that since CBS seems interested in remastering things for Blu-ray that they might decided DS9 doesn’t need new FX and take the money they would have spent on that and remix the music back to the original composers mixes. Heck even the more interesting scores. It’s not like they never rerecorded the music on their other releases.

17. Aaron - February 6, 2013

I mean do we really care? TM> sneak in to Paramount and find out who the hell John Harrison is.That is a story.

18. Uberbot - February 6, 2013

Why would you want to know who Harrison is? Do you open all your Christmas presents a week before Christmas too? Lol!

19. Uberbot - February 6, 2013

#16 — I wish!!

20. Pointing Out The Obvious - February 6, 2013

Yea… NOT worth 50 bucks in my opinion.

21. Dr. Image - February 6, 2013

Love DS9. Hate the music.
TBTB (incl. Berman) were ignorant IDOTS. They knew nothing, NOTHING about the power of film scoring and its impact on narrative.
Morons.
And they made good composers suffer.

22. Simon - February 6, 2013

@#20 – but apparently worth posting your opinion on :rolleyes:

I’m really looking forward to this set and hope my favorite cues from the episodes listed are there.

23. Copper Based Blood - February 6, 2013

I’ll be getting it, I’m an obsessive collector of Sci Fi Film scores.

Can’t tell the missus, I’ll be spending $50 on it!!!!

OH S**T!!!! Here She Comes ” Da….Da….Da…Dum…Da,Da…Dum…Da,Da” (Mrs. Vader’s Theme)

24. Aaron - February 6, 2013

@18 I knew Anikin was Darth Vader before I saw Episode I.

25. Aaron - February 6, 2013

@ 24 Anakin

26. Chain of Command - February 6, 2013

@5

LOL. I hear ya! Those producers from 1991 onward…. I will never understand their annoyance when it came to music that actually would have made their shows even more memorable.

27. Ultros - February 7, 2013

DS9 is probably my favorite SF show but I can’t see my self listening to the soundtrack, other than the season 4 opening credit theme. After Ron Jones was fired from TNG the music became really bland.

28. Jonboc - February 7, 2013

Sad how lackluster the music was, DS9 was one of the better TNG spin-offs…although it really got on my nerves that these people lived right next to a gateway to an entire unexplored quadrant and too often it seemed all they wanted to explore was Worf’s romances or boring Bajoran politics.

29. Uberbot - February 7, 2013

There could have been a Jem Hadar theme, a Dominion theme…a Bajir theme, etc. all that was pissed away because TPTB didn’t understand how to use the talent of their composers!

Sad that we lost that opportunity.

30. Jon - February 7, 2013

Hmmm….interesting in that I did not know that the blandness of later Trek music was forced by TPTB :( . Were they just trying to save money or something?

Comparing DS9 music (which I barely remember despite watching every episode) with some other music/scores of favorite TV shows of the same time can certainly be striking. Babylon 5 and the Bruce Timm/Paul Dini Warner Bros. animated superhero fare of the 90s (Batman and Superman animated series) are shining examples of how important good music is to a show…I still remember these scores to this day even though I haven’t watched either in awhile…

But Trek in general became blander and blander as the 90s progressed thanks to TPTB…and I guess the music was just another symptom…

I’d also go as far as to say that much of today’s TV shows suffer badly from a lack of good music…take CSI for example…all they do is use an already-long-ago-composed song from The Who as their theme song. Nothing wrong with the song, mind you, but it seems to me to be a very lazy choice rather then come up with a new theme unique to said show.

Or look at the theme songs to shows from the 60s through the 80s…most of us can remember these in a heartbeat (think Speed Racer, Gilligan’s Island, TOS (of course), Lost in Space, Twilight Zone, $6 Million Dollar Man, Different Strokes, Facts of Life, The Jeffersons…the list could go on and on), but for today’s shows? Not so much…in fact, they often don’t even bother with a theme song anymore and just skip right over it (due to wanted to squeeze in more commercials no doubt)…

31. Red Dead Ryan - February 7, 2013

Yeah, most of the music for today’s shows are pretty bland. I guess Rick Berman was ahead of the curve in that regard! :-)

Though Michael Giaccino’s “Lost” score is absolutely briliant and beautiful. A rare sound these days, though Bear McCreary has done some good music too, such as “The Walking Dead”, “Battlestar Galactica”, and “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”.

32. dub - February 7, 2013

It would be cool to have a “composer’s cut,” like we sometimes get “director’s cuts” for video.

33. Disinvited - February 8, 2013

#30. Jon

If memory serves, as in right now I’m getting a flash that it was an electronic interaction with one of the producers of SLIDERS when it was on FOX that I got my McCarthy connection and not a chat session, he said that the person making the decree was obsessed with the writing and absolutely afeared that ANY sound that was too interesting or above a certain level would destract and detract from the words being spoken by the actors.

I remember thinking “Why would they appear to be implementing the same restrictions on the new theme?” Then it hit me: they were afraid if the theme was too anything that the viewer might linger in musical enjoyment not changing focus fast enough to appreciate how magnificent and artfully they had set the opening scene.

I remember something from McCarthy about the people running the show coming only from an experience of writing and not having a clue about the collaborative process.

34. DS9 Forever - February 10, 2013

@#4: “mostly because DS9 isn’t a fave series of mine, ”

YOUR LOSS: DS9 is the best of the Treks, and one of the very best sci-fi shows ever.

It kills me to know that there are still people out there who don’t recognize DS9 for going beyond what any of the other Treks, before or after DS9, did. They took the characters deeper, took more chances in the plotting and storytelling, and weren’t afraid to really tackle societal issues in a way none of the other Treks since TOS did.

The “dark” Trek also did comedy more, and better, than any of the other casts. DS9 makes the relative blandness and perfection of the TNG crew almost unwatchable now, and VOY and ENT were tame pretenders by comparison.

Now we just need DS9 to get the same restoration TNG got, and released on Blu-Ray soon.

35. Carlos Teran - February 10, 2013

I’m sooo looking forward for this one. :D

36. Eliasj - February 11, 2013

3,

Thank you!

I find DS9 soundtracks more ”Battle ready” that the TNG one. Don’t get me wrong, I love TNG music especially the one written by Ron Jones!

37. Spock's Second Favorite Organ - February 11, 2013

I agree with those who find nothing distinctive in the soundtracks of TNG or DS9 or Voyager. I’ve seen those shows all the way through several times, but I couldn’t hum a note from any of them.

I seem to recall the score composers complaining that they weren’t allowed to write any music, just synth tones – melodic wallpaper without any actual melodies. I recall an interview wherein one of DS9’s composers complained that even in the Tribbles episode, the producers would not allow tunes from the original Trouble with Tribbles mixed in. God forbid that something recognizable as a tune would be allowed in any Trek other than TOS.

But, clearly, others disagree and find something they like in this music. I wish I did.

38. Sebas - February 28, 2013

#15: The soundtrack of the DS9 pilot, “Emissary”, was edited by GNP Crescendo back in 1993. It’s out there if want to check it out.

#30: Berman, according to Ron Jones, wanted “sonic wallpaper”. That decree was somewhat broken on the last seasons of DS9 (“Call to Arms” comes to mind). And no, it had nothing to do with saving money, in fact the music was taped from a large (for TV at least) orchestra.
