|OMG...it was TWO teasers! The other one makes me think of some movie score, like when things gets all sticky romantic or nostalgic. ( )|
To me it sounded like it was the end of some part or track.
I'd guess they've chosen these short snippets with care not to reveal too much about the total characteristics of the whole album.
So still I'm very curious!
I also found the latter excerpt to be very cinematic. Mike really should do more soundtracks... he definitely can write music that is emotional and imaginative. Not all his albums have it, but most do. IMO "The Killing Fields" is not a kind of movie where Mike's music is best used, although the music he made for it is excellent. I can imagine some historical movies, maybe sci-fi, certainly romantic where his music would be more at home.
Here's an example of sorts... someone has made a video extract of movie "North & South", using "Lake Constance" as its soundtrack. Now, this music is not composed for this clip obviously, but IMO historical dramas such as this really could benefit from music by Mike. I have never seen North & South and have only little idea what is it about (didn't bother to Google yet). Sounds befitting to me, anyway.
