Re: Bruce Faulconer returning to compose the score for DBS?

While we're on the subject, there actually is a question I have for Scott Morgan here. There are some instances in the series of tracks being different in the remastered version, apparently due to being the tracks originally intended for the scene before they were changed late in production. Howeve...

Re: Bruce Faulconer returning to compose the score for DBS?

fame\reputation wise Also it's not like he didn't make money off DBZ. They did pay him, just not as much as he wanted I guess. And it kept my household afloat for 1.5 years. Also it's a damn fun project to work on. I'd rate it as one of the most fun jobs I've ever had actually. The Faulconer score ...

Re: Bruce Faulconer returning to compose the score for DBS?

Like I was saying, Funimation had no history. They started with DBZ. The whole reason that company was formed was to work on DBZ(Gen had an uncle who worked for Toei I believe, so they landed the DBZ license). So Mike and Bruce (who are the people who landed the contract) didn't have anything to an...

Re: Bruce Faulconer returning to compose the score for DBS?

Bruce Falcouner most likely won’t return to Funimation. On a slightly unrelated note, I would love to see Kikuchi compose again. Seriously, WTF. Reason he won't come back is due to most of his songs were by Scott Morgan and not him. Hey guys. The real reason Faulconer Productions music has no chanc...

In terms of vibe for Faulconer I would suggest the Trunks theme.

Thanks guys! Re:Attitudefan. I've never met Ron Wasserman, just learned about him here on this forum actually.

It would be super cool to have a joint interview with him.

Interview with Faulconer Productions Music composers

We flew to Texas to do an interview with Geekdom101. This has been in the works for ages!
I know the crowd here is more Japanese score focused than ever, but some of you might still appreciate.

Re: Romanized Spellings on Japanese Merchandise

I could have sworn "Doubler" appeared in Ultimate Battle 22. Maybe I'm thinking of "Gokou" or something in Final Bout. I know some place had one of the name spellings that certain fans liked. I'm trying to remember where I saw "Doubler." I know that "Doubler" is used in the Bruce Faulconer soundtra...

Re: But seriously, how did the Falcouner soundtrack even make it to air?

See, I just don't get this. The people who nostalgia so hard over Toonami-era Dragon Ball and who insist the music needed to be changed because of how supposedly dated it was and how it didn't sound like other cartoons from that era... For what it's worth, I'm not one of those people. I mean, I'm G...

Re: But seriously, how did the Falcouner soundtrack even make it to air?

The Japanese score is clearly based on 60's film music. I had a thread a while back on this. To an older person who is familiar with that music it's very apparent, to some younger people it sounds new and fresh because it is so far forgotten I think. The Wuxia vibe could be a decent excuse for some...

Re: But seriously, how did the Falcouner soundtrack even make it to air?

I still don't buy this idea that the score was so "outdated", especially considering the English dub only began 7 years after DBZ premiered in Japan (and the in-house Funi dub was just a few years later). Even now... y'know, I've said this already, but it holds up just fine. I don't see what's part...

I haven't listened to it in years and it's worse than even I remember. I'm not knocking the musicial IDEAS, I'm knocking the horrendous production.

Re: Favorite Falconer Remix?

"Eternal Sacrifice" by Tendril was a pretty cool remix of the main Faulconer Dragonball Z theme. Scott, do you happen to know what the story was behind it? Did Tendril make it independently or was there collaboration with the Faulconer team? Nope, sorry. I don't think I've even heard it before. Pre...
