The Aquaman soundtrack was released today, and I’m enjoying it

The Aquaman soundtrack by Rupert Gregson-Williams was released today, and I just found it on Spotify:

I’ve literally listened to two tracks so far, and it doesn’t seem like it includes the music we heard in the trailer is in the soundtrack. Just the same, just based on “What Could Be Greater Than a King?“, I think this will be on heavy rotation for me.

Danny Elfman’s Batman theme in the Justice League soundtrack

I thought I’d listen to Danny Elfman’s Justice League soundtrack again this morning, and noticed a familiar theme while listening to the track “The Final Battle” at about 1:12:

It’s familiar because Elfman probably drew on his theme from the Michael Keaton Batman movie themes. Listen to this track from Batman, titled “Attack of the Batwing“:

It comes out pretty clearly in “Batman Theme Reprise“, too:

I’m not as much a fan of Danny Elfman lately, but I love hearing these throwbacks to this soundtrack that I really enjoyed back in the day.

Sweet sounds of This Bitter Earth

I feel like I’m on a bit of a Max Richter journey of discovery the last couple days. My conversation with a couple other music fans prompted me to listen to Richter’s “The Blue Notebooks” album, and it’s terrific.

I especially enjoy the sweet sound of “This Bitter Earth / On The Nature Of Daylight“:

Vivaldi’s Summer 3, spiced up

I’m listening to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (well, a version of it anyway) while I work through exercises in Learn Python 3 the Hard Way, and I really like how Vivaldi’s Summer 3 has been tweaked in the album “Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons“.

Here’s a fairly typical rendition of this track:

Now, here’s the Max Richter and Co version:

On a related note, this is a beautiful version of Autumn 3, too:

Spring, remixed

I really enjoy this take on Vivaldi’s Spring 1:

You can hear Max Richter’s influence in this layered rendition. It’s a terrific piece of music to relax to after my wife’s cooking tonight.

Break Through it all with this track

I’ve been listening to the Lounge – Soft House playlist on Spotify a lot lately, and the Sons of Maria track, Break Through – Club Mix, really appeals to me. I have it on repeat at the moment.
