I have a very simple, but not necessarily easy question. Among the new music added to Pirates during the 2006 rehab is the music in the battle scene, which features the score from the movie. Now I had assumed that this was recorded for the ride along with the other new pieces. However, Randy has stated in his post on why an updated Pirates mix will not be released any time soon that the music in fact comes directly from the music score. I've been listening to the piece in the ride through from the Japanese, and trying to figure out where in the movie that piece of music appears. It may not be possible to seperate that piece of music from the dialog and sound effect tracks in the movie anyway (and even if it is, as the kindly FBI warning at the beginning of the movie reminds us, the film and it's soundtrack are protected by international copyright laws). None the less, while the only release that cue may get is on the Japanese ridethrough, I'd still like to know where that piece of music appears. I have listened to the soundtracks of all three Pirates movies many times over (in fact I like to listen to them all in sequence when I'm working) and I can say for sure it does not appear on the official soundtrack. The music does sound like the same piece of music from Jack Sparrow's first entrance in the first movie (which does appear on the soundtrack), but is not the same orchestration. I'm betting that if it does indeed appear in the movie it's that theme appearing again later on (which happens with all of the themes in the film). I'm operating on the assumption that the piece appears in the first film, because the second two films have a different composer (Hans Zimmer did work on the first film as well but in fact it was scored by several composers as the film neared completion, as I believe the original composer was fired) and tend to play off of different themes than the first film. So. Anybody know?
