I'm delirious with excitement! So much beautiful music, particularly from Only a Dream, Wild Cards, Maid of Honor, Comfort and Joy, The Terror Beyond, Twilight, The Savage Time, A Better World and (of course) Starcrossed. Those tears of joy are close at hand now...

I'm shocked that Secret Society is not represented at all though, and I see that other memorable cues did not make the cut. I'll put together a list of those cues in due course, in the hope that we might someday get a 2-disc Volume 2. But this set is so fantastic!

Some cues that I would really like to see included if a second volume of JL is eventually released:
  • SECRET ORIGINS: Batman vs. the three aliens on the observatory roof (Part 1), J'onn origin flashback (Part 2)
  • TWILIGHT: Arrival on the Brainiac moon (end of Part 1), fight with Darkseid's Brainiac army (Part 2), Forager meets Highfather (end of Part 2)
  • A BETTER WORLD: Flash tricks Justice Lord Batman (Part 2), Justice League cross back (Part 2)
  • ECLIPSED: Flash Booster Bar commercial (beginning of Part 1)
  • SECRET SOCIETY: Shade's robbery (Part 1), Grodd and Clayface talk (Part 1), Batman in the hospital / League fights the Society (Part 1), Recap (Part 2), Stadium showdown (Part 2).
  • WILD CARDS: Watchtower scene (beginning of Part 1), "25 bombs" (Part 1), Jack surprises Batman (Part 1), Recap (Part 2), "A person could really learn to hate that guy" (Part 2), Flash gets rid of the last bomb (Part 2)
  • STARCROSSED: Recap (Part 2), Talak's announcement to the world (Part 2), Recap (Part 3), Kraager exposes Shayera to Hro (Part 3), Batcave fight (Part 3)
It would also be cool to have the Luminus/Grundy fight from Only a Dream, J'onn destroying the Philosopher's Stone in A Knight of Shadows and the John Stewart apartment scene in Hearts and Minds.

Hopefully all of the above will eventually find their way onto a different release, but for now I'm looking forward to the new 4-disc set - which is packed to the brim with LOTS of excellent JL music! Will post thoughts on that release in its talkback thread. :)

Very nice interview!
I'm glad you asked about what goes into the soundtrack album-making process, since despite all their interviews over the years it's something that never has been covered very well. This has me ready to buy all three of their releases as soon as they're available.

Very excited for all the upcoming releases. I was surprised that we won't be getting complete scores for the JL set but I can understand the reasoning. Honestly I can't complain, I'm totally thrilled with what we are getting!

Excellent interview - it was particularly cool to read about the composers' memories of presenting Secret Origins to Bruce Timm, as well as their thoughts on the score selection process (favouring "complete statements of music"). Thanks for this, James! :)

Hmm... I wonder which of the DC animation regulars (the DMP, Frederik Wiedmann, or Robert Kral) will be crafting the score to it (if any of the above).

Just a quick shout-out to anyone who's enjoying the Justice League set (or planning on buying it) and wants a second volume to make their views known to La-La Land! E-mail them if you want them to release more music from the show. It's never too early to show interest, especially not after what happened with Superman:TAS (which might not be getting a second volume due to slow/poor sales).

I'm saying this now because it might be hard to persuade La-La Land to release a second volume of JL given that the first release has already (partially) addressed most of the show's episodes.

Fans need to make a case for JL Vol 2, like they did for BTAS Vol 4!

Fimucité 2016 is just around the corner and I was just wondering if any Toonzone users will be going. If you are, then you're in for a treat! Here's the programme: http://fimucite.com/f10/en/programme

There will be two DC animated concerts. The one on the 29th September will be almost exactly the same as the one that was held in Krakow earlier this year (see my earlier post in this thread for a breakdown of that concert), but with the addition of music from the Teen Titans episodes 'Terra' and 'Things Change', as well as the film 'Trouble in Tokyo'.

The 'A Tribute to Shirley Walker' concert on the 28th September also looks amazing. It will feature music from 'Mask of the Phantasm', 'On Leather Wings', 'Make 'Em Laugh', 'Chase Me', 'To Another Shore', 'Little Big Head Man', 'Starcrossed' and 'Cyborg the Barbarian'. Check out the programme for the details of the cues selected from those stories. Very sad to be missing out on that concert.

Let's hope this won't be the only time that those amazing cues (I'm thinking particularly of 'Make 'Em Laugh', 'On Leather Wings', 'Starcrossed', 'Cyborg the Barbarian' and 'To Another Shore') will be performed live!

Well, look at that! Larry Rench is the orchestrator for the event; I believe he orchestrated The Killing Joke as well. I guess he has a good relationship with the DMP as he did with Walker.
Man, I'm never able to go to these concerts... I wish recordings of them would be made available every now and then!

10/1: Fimucité 2016 is over now (I think) but here are some cool little clips from rehearsals that recently took place! :)

10/7: Sorry for the double post, but I wanted to chime in that the Dynamic Music Partners' website lists them as having been working on 3 top secret projects "with announcements to come in 2016". Obviously two of them were The Killing Joke and Return of the Caped Crusaders. Could the third one be Batman vs. Two-Face (the Caped Crusaders sequel)?

I was just about to say "Where's Gridman?" on that Crunchyroll streaming thread.
DISH had recent upgrades on the 61.5 orbital slot this early morning. My signal strengths got increased and transponders were moved to another.

How Cartoon Network and TBS moved to other transponders. :P
What I love from the commercial studio Psyop, is the Cricket Wireless critters (known as the Cricketters) in different shapes and colored in Green, Yellow and Blue. So imaginative and cute! :)
Most Europeans here don't know about the old Grinch Christmas special. Even in Portugal.
When Is the Nickelodeon Highlights usually up for December? I Was just wondering...
