Rogue One - Rescored
Time

The music is unfortunately mixed equally loud across all channels, the Center Channel is full of it.
Unless a SFX/dialogue only track miraculously appears, this project is dead.

Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread

The special features look surprisingly generic to me. Only interviews with the usual PR chit chat but nothing about the actual production. As it was mentioned above, there should be a real documentary like the one’s they did for the ALIEN DVDs back then highlighting all production aspects.

It was mentioned over at blu-ray.com that Edwards actually confirmed that he recorded a commentary so I’m hoping there’ll be a deluxe version later this year.

Very interesting idea. I might suggest watching some war movies and paying attention to their scores, and trying to emulate that style.

Thank you guys! I’m happy to hear that a more non-classical Star Wars approach is also appealing to some of you 😃
The war movie suggestion is a good one! I might use some of the more serious one’s. There’ll be no Dirty Dozen or Delta Force in it for sure 😉

Thanks for the suggestion! However, my goal is actually to make the score less Star Wars. Giacchino’s original, albeit largely ignoring the drama and being generic, already has that vibe to it.
What I’m trying is to give the music more depth and impact on an emotional level. Make it more serious. Thematically it’ll probably be less coherent than the original score, but again, putting emphasize on the human drama and an overall adult tone of the film is what I’m aiming for.
However, I’m going to use snippets from William’s original trilogy scores, namely The Imperial March for parts of Vader’s scenes as well as the Death Star motif from A New Hope. I think both of those make sense to be in the movie.

Hallo,

könnte mir bitte auch jemand die Download-Links zu allen drei Teilen zusenden? Habe bei Laserschwert schon mehrmals per PM nachgefragt, aber leider keine Antwort erhalten.

Danke schon mal!

Dem kann ich mich nur anschließen. Es wäre wirklich super wenn jemand die Links für alle drei Teile zur VErfügung stellen könnte 😃

Vielen Dank im Voraus!

I think it really depends on how intensive the rescore is. There are parts of the score that work well and could be left as is. The real issues will arise when you are trying to rescore scenes with dialogue and/or with very loud music. Battle scenes are relatively ok if you can find the correct sound fx to fill in the lost sound. Does the new battlefront have a file folder with rogue one sound files? That would be a good start.

Yes, this would definitely apply to an “unfavorable” mix where the original music is presented rather loud.
Very good idea to check the Battlefront sounds library! Although of course creating a SFX/dialogue only version would be very time consuming if at all possible.

If the rumors are true we’Ll have the blue ray on March 28th, so not that long from now on to find out 😃

Thanks guys! I’ll share some more updates along the way!

If it isn’t that simple?

Well, then it might be very difficult to replace any music. The rescore would most likely be too loud because it would need to overpower the original score. It probably won’t sound any good.

But I’ve “rescored” other movies before where you wouldn’t have thought that their mix would leave room for new music (Sunhshine, Prometheus), so finger’s crossed 😃

Hi there!

I’m currently working on a Rescore for Rogue One as I thought the music didn’t do the film justice at all. Nothing against Giacchino but I think the score just ended up being too “Disney” and not really adding much on a emotional level.
So I’m cutting together new tracks out of existing scores and if the 5.1. mix has no or little music in the center channel, it should be relatively easy to put it in.

Would you guys be interested in a version with a different score?
