Biografía

John Powell (Inglaterra, 18 de septiembre de 1963) es un compositor británico de música cinematográfica.
De niño, Powell originalmente se formaba para violinista, antes de estudiar en el Trinity College of Music de Londres. Más tarde se aventuró en el jazz y la música rock, tocando en la banda de soul The Fabulistics. Después de abandonar la universidad, compuso música para comerciales, lo que lo llevó a trabajar como asistente del compositor Patrick Doyle en varias producciones cinematográficas, incluyendo Mucho ruido y pocas nueces.

En 1995, fue el cofundador de la empresa musical Independently Thinking Music, con sede en Londres. La empresa produjo la música para más de 100 comerciales y películas independientes, tanto británicos como franceses.
Tras mudarse a los Estados Unidos en 1997, se convirtió en un compositor popular para música de filmes de comedia y de acción, incluyendo Robots, The Italian Job, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, El ultimátum de Bourne, Sr. y Sra. Smith, Shrek, Chicken Run (compuesta junto con Harry Gregson-Williams), Endurance, Ice Age: The Meltdown y Face/Off
Powell es uno de lo más conocidos ex-miembros de Remote Control Productions (también conocido como Media Ventures), un equipo de compositores de música cinematográfica que posee un estilo que incorpora elementos de música orquestal tradicional y elementos sintetizados más modernos.
En la actualidad reside en Los Ángeles y esta casado con la fotógrafa Melinda Lerner, con quien tiene un hijo.

    'Drumline' score is rare

    The new theme for How to Train Your Dragon 2 is Powell's best theme ever and one of the most beautiful melodies I've ever heard.

    JOhn, I absolutely love what you did with Bourne. Perfect espionnage music.

    httyd2 has a very good soundtrack, and I like it :) But I agree with Nuke_The_USA: it's just the inheritance of the first one and I'd expected more new breathtaking tracks like Forbidden Friendship... Stoick's Ship is one of my favourites tho, and the film is just as great as the first one *-*

    Unknowny503, my tears gave credits. :'( I know well that original themes are often being used for sequels, but I also believe that composers should give plenty of room to new motives. For myself I found only two alike: Flying with Mother and Toothless Found. What are yours? It is just... as I wrote on few months ago "I expect battle-like score", but got calm, merely background chill-out music. I was proud of the original score, as it's one of the fewest that can be encouraged to be listened apart from the movie. Its follower is a good one, but stays good only while watching the sequel.

    Nuke_The_USA, you don't expect radically new motives for a sequel, do you? I believe it was quite predictable to hear the same notes. Pst. at least give some credit to Stoick's Ship

    Strongly disagree. HTTYD2 Score is not better, because: it's not that diversified as the original score where you can recall pacified IDM or ambient-like (call it on your taste) tracks - Forbidden Friendship, dramatic and literally breathtaking Test Drive, there were even mystical, folkish and truly viking inspired compositions! All of these absent in second score which is rather linear, calm and exploiting original motives, instead of composing something new. I can highlight only Flying with Mother, this is the only track that gives me goosepimples feeling. Lovely chorus, uplifting atmosphere and bells (if that's them).

    X MEN: The Last Stand is not a great movie, but the score is amazing. All fans of Powell's more intense scores should listen to it.

    Don't think there will compositions like Forbidden Friendship. Score is going to be more battle and swift. Well, according to trailer I expect that.

    I'm scared of the second httyd score... can it be as good as the first? will he be able to surpass forbidden friendship?
