REVIEW

Speed (ENGLISH)

Speed (Mark Mancina). Against the sure option to choose one composer with solid experience in composition for action films, the director Jan de Bont wanted to entrust the music to an almost unknown Mark Mancina, who had not yet a solo scoring credit on a major feature. Lucky for the film music, the director got his own way, and Mancina created one of the best modern scores for a film of dramatic action. And it is that if the film is good, the score is always good. It is a question of cause - effect.

Speed is possibly the best score composed by Mark Mancina, which announced him worldwide and the right to enter the first level composers select group. expanded edition of the score includes more enough footage that to the standard version, including several themes with musical moments that they were missed in the first edition, as the action motif in synthesizers of Pop Quiz, the synths of Payne Explodes and Bus Enters Freeway, the dramatic moment of Jack Leaves the Bus, the dynamism of Annie's Loaded / Getting on Train and the electronic tender flute of Runaway Train. Another detail that La-La Land always bears in mind is putting the tracks in chronological order, unlike the original version that, in this aspect, is untid enough.

The expanded edition includes the theme Speed by Billy Idol, recruited by the studio to compose this song for the film's end credits, thing to be welcomed because, although it is not part of the score, it is music specifically created for the movie.

Speed: Máxima Potencia (ESPAÑOL)

Speed: Máxima Potencia (Mark Mancina). Contra la opción segura de elegir una compositor con sólida experiencia en composición para cine de acción, el director Jan de Bont quiso confiar la música a un casi desconocido Mark Mancina, quien por aquel entonces aún no había compuesto en solitario la música para una película de importancia. Afortunadamente para la música de cine, el director se salió con la suya, y Mancina creó una de las mejores partituras modernas para un film de acción dramática. Y es que, como suele suceder, si el film es bueno, la partitura siempre suele serlo. Es una cuestión de causa-efecto.

Speed es posiblemente la mejor banda sonora de Mark Mancina, la que le dio a conocer a nivel mundial y el derecho a entrar en el selecto grupo de compositores de primer nivel. La versión extendida del score incluye bastante más metraje que a la versión estándar, incluyendo varios temas con momentos musicales que se echaban en falta en la primera edición, como el tema de acción en sintetizadores de Pop Quiz, los sintes de Payne Explodes y Bus Enters Freeway, el dramático momento de Jack Leaves the Bus, el dinamismo de Annie's Loaded / Getting on Train y la delicada flauta electrónica de Runaway Train. Otro detalle que La-La Land siempre tiene en cuenta es el de poner las pistas en orden cronológico, a diferencia de la versión original que en este aspecto es bastante desordenada.

La versión expandida incluye el tema Speed que el estudio encargó a Billy Idol para los créditos finales, cosa de agradecer porque, aunque no sea parte del score, sí que es música específicamente creada para la película.
