What songs do you think will be good in the move?

The Artemis Fowl Movie is coming... On the 26th July 2013, Disney, in association with Harvey Weinstein, announced that a movie covering the events of the first two books was finally in the works!

Generally, I think that they should get Trevor Rabin to do the soundtrack [National Treasure] maybe in collaboration with James Newton Howard [Atlantis/Treasure Planet]. I agree with whoever said that there should be Celtic music in there - at least the use of Irish instruments within the orchestration. I do not think that there should be pop songs - at least not ones that people will recognize as something outside of the movie, and I do believe that some Beethoven/Mozart would be excellent just because those are the soundtracks Artemis keeps in his head [book 6]. It might even be cool to do a revamp of a classical piece with modern instruments and a new beat for Artemis's themesong!

As I've probably said before in this topic, yes, there should definitely not be any lyric songs in the movie, at all.

I wasn't really keen on the use of just random Irish, like folk music? in the movie, but how you said that maybe it could be just a spin on the orchestra, that sounds like it would work well.
I guess maybe there could be general Irish too (i don't know what I'm exactly thinking of, when I think of Irish music, or if there's some other kind that I have no idea about, so I'm sorry), just when something completely ridiculous is happening, (like Mulch doing something?).

I think they should have the following people do the soundtrack:

1. Hans Zimmer (Feat. Celldweller)

2. Danny Elfman (Main Theme of Movie only)

3. Michael Londra (Ending Song only, "Artemis")

- - - - - - -

For the people who don't know who Celldweller is, listen to this and be amazed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4payPuRM-Q

Also, we need a track with ominous Latin Faerie chanting.

Shippers scare me. I'm not sure if it's the need to pair everything romantically, or the intense hatred of any new female characters that come in later on.

I luv all you people who appreciate the goodness that is Hans Zimmer XD He'd be awesome, although I think he's a little on the classical side - I picture AF a lot more high-tech and even odd at some points. Danny Elfman is actually a very good choice, maybe for the People's theme. He does a lot of "outside the box" type music. I think Trevor Rabin or James Newton Howard would also be good.

Apparently, it's a song that people think would go good with the movie. Don't worry, I don't get it either. :blink:

Does anyone else think 2:34 to 3:03 of this deserves to be in a TV Spot for the movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MAdy3WcC-U

Possibly. As long as the lyrics aren't in it, any kind of instrumental that could be adapted to specific scenes should be ok I think.

Yeah, I meant the instrumental one. It's pretty awesome.

I think James Newton Howard's work would be suitable. He does a great job with the emotional side of music, as seen here (this is my favorite song by him): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXUwIXadl74. Also, he really gets into a movie's setting, and constantly reinvents his style and incorporates new instrumentation to reach new levels of immersion.

If he were to pair up with someone obsessed with production and technicalities, a REALLY awesome soundtrack would definitely result.

This is all I could find about "Artemis"
Artemis
I wrote this when Eoin Colfer, author of "Artemis Fowl," the worldwide children's bestseller came to see me on Broadway. Miramax, who have optioned the movie to be made this year for a spring 2004 release, heard that we were in the same class all the way through school, so they arranged for the trip. We talked about both having had relative success in the U.S. and I was totally inspired by him and the character he created. Artemis is the "anti- Harry Potter" and can be a nasty piece of work. The song is kind of dark and sounds a bit spooky. Miramax have heard the song and hopefully it will make the movie. I sing it next month in Ireland at the launch of the 3rd book in the series which has sold millions so far.


I couldn't even find lyrics...
Don't blink.

"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more of a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey.... Stuff."

I have a lot of fandoms.
Spoiler:
Doctor Who, Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter, Elementary, Torchwood, Starkid, and Homestuck are some of them.

I'm loosing it. I lost it. Maddie ate it.

:huh2:
umm...That's strange... Why does this song not actually exist? And why did nothing happen with the movie if big companies like that were involved?

So...there's a link to it on this site, but it won't open for me. Can anyone else open it? Go to the home page and click media, sound clips (or something)
