Album Baru Linkin Park Terpengaruh 'THE RAID'?

A Thousand Suns memang baru dilansir tahun 2010 lalu namun Linkin Park sepertinya sudah mempersiapkan materi untuk album baru mereka nanti. Sambil mengumpulkan materi, Mike Shinoda juga disibukkan proyek soundtrack film Indonesia berjudul THE RAID. Ada kemungkinan sound dalam lagu ini bakal berpengaruh pada album Linkin Park selanjutnya.
"Kami selalu menyempatkan diri menulis lagu. Saya sendiri tidak yakin apa keterlibatan saya di THE RAID akan mempengaruhi album Linkin Park selanjutnya," ungkap Mike Shinoda seperti dikutip dari Contact Music. Dari sisi sound, soundtrack yang dikerjakan Mike Shinoda ini memang sedikit berbeda dari sound Linkin Park.

"Satu hal yang saya lakukan dari awal adalah menghilangkan gitar elektrik pada soundtrack ini," ujar Mike beberapa waktu yang lalu. Soalnya, menurut Mike, suara gitar elektrik terasa kurang pas dengan nuansa yang disajikan film yang juga dikenal dengan judul SERBUAN MAUT ini. Mike memang belum bisa memastikan apakah konsep ini bakal ia bawa ke album Linkin Park nantinya atau tidak.

"We'll have to wait and see. Hopefully, the wait won't be too long," ungkap Mike Shinoda lagi.

Interview Mike Di Artist Direct

Berita interview Mike sebelumnya di Billboard and Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Music Conference.Kali ini interview Mike di Artist Direct, membicarakan tentang scoring The Raid, film action, Music Rerief, dan menulis musik.

Klik Show Untuk Melihat Interview> :

When scoring The Raid, did the characters or the plot exert a bigger influence on the music? How did both cinematic elements impact your sonic choices?

I tried to take it all into account and represent both the characters and their story. That's actually one thing that's notable about this film. It actually has both plot and characters—not just the action! I've wanted to score for film for a long time, but I never got the urge to actually pull the trigger…until seeing The Raid. There was something about the look and action of this film that I felt inspired by, almost like writing music for choreography that's already been set. The fighting and the action in this movie are almost like a dance—albeit a nasty, bloody one!

When working along with footage, was it easier to punctuate certain moments and make the music more dramatic?

I want to give people a big, modern, and memorable sound. At the same time, I tried to find a nice balance between the moments when the music plays a supporting role and blends into the background, versus the moments when the music can jump out front with a signature flavor. Especially in the big fight scenes, I wanted those scenes to be visually and musically brutal.

Does writing a score come from a different creative place than writing a song? With scoring a film you're working with existing art whereas a song starts with you.

Absolutely! Writing a song, for me, is often about telling a personal story through memorable, catchy words and music. In a film, the majority of the effort is to support what's already going on, without distracting. Often, the techniques I might use to create a catchy "hook" would actually take away from a scene. They would be far too distracting, and you would miss what's going on in the story. I made this mistake a few times in early pieces I tried to fit to picture while working on The Raid!

The action is incredible in the film. Did that lend itself to the more up-tempo music?

Of course, but the film needed a ton of music—over 50 minutes of it—which means we couldn't just ride up-tempo music the whole time. It would be exhausting and one-dimensional. So I had to find ways of making the score shift gears, weaving and turning with the action to keep it interesting.

Did you get to try anything musically in the score that you'd never done before in terms of instrumentation or production?

One of the things that I decided to do early on was essentially abandon the use of electric guitars in this score. Guitars seemed to take it in a mookish, ostentatious direction, which is not the tone of this film. But there are moments when the score wanted to get super heavy, so I achieved it by making my own super-distorted percussive and melodic sounds. I also enlisted the help of Joe Trapanese, who was Daft Punk's scoring partner on Tron: Legacy. He's from a composer / arranger background, and we played off each other's ideas really well.

What spoke to you the most about The Raid? Did you grow up watching a lot of action movies?

The first R-rated movies I ever saw were probably The Terminator, Commando, and Rambo. That era was really fun, as a kid. I have no idea what the music was like in those films, come to think of it…I was definitely just watching the action!

What's next with Music For Relief?

We're still working in Haiti and Japan, helping with rebuilding efforts in both countries. We recently did a concert at the smallest venue we've played in more than half a decade, to support Japan. Fans raised over $350,000 for the cause, and the top fundraisers got tickets to the small show. Then, when we were in Japan on tour, we visited some of the tsunami-affected schools where the money has bought school supplies for the kids. It was an amazing, sobering experience. You should check out the videos and stories about this effort on

Have you begun writing for the next Linkin Park record? Did The Raid inspire that process at all?

We are always writing. I'm not sure how my participation on The Raid might affect the next Linkin Park album…we'll have to wait and see. Hopefully, the wait won't be too long.

11th Anniversary Hybrid Theory

Hari ini tepat tanggal 24 Oktober 11 tahun lalu, Linkin Park mengeluarkan album pertamanya Hybrid Theory. Penjualan album ini lebih dari 15.000.000 keping copy. Ini merupakan awal kesuksesan band Linkin Park sampai saat ini.

Linkin Park meluncurkan album pertamanya, Hybrid Theory, pada tanggal 24 Oktober 2000 dengan singel pertama One Step Closer. Namun, yang lebih terkenal adalah singel Crawling dan In the End. Lagu ini telah membuat Linkin Park menjadi populer. Linkin Park lalu merilis edisi spesial dari Hybrid Theory, dengan 2 lagu baru High Voltage dan My December.

Linkin Park lalu merilis album aransemen ulang tau remix dari Hybrid Theory, yaitu Reanimation. Album ini pun meraih kesuksesan dengan penjualan kira-kira 10.000.000 copy. Singelnya, Pts.Of.Athrty, cukup terkenal. Linkin Park, melalui Mike Shinoda dan Joe Hahn, juga sempat bekerja sama dengan band The X-ecutioners dalam pembuatan singel It's Goin' Down. Linkin Park juga membentuk kelompok fans mereka bernama Linkin Park Underground, serta mulai mengadakan tur sendiri bernama Projekt Revolution.

Mike : The Raid: Film Score Update

Mike menulis di blognya tentang update tentang scoring yang dilakukannya untuk film Serbuan Maut atau The Raid. Mike menceritakan perbedaannya menulis lagu untuk Linkin Park dan menulis lagu untuk film The Raid ini. Mike akan hadir di Billboard Hollywood Reporter Film and TV Conference untuk menceritakan pengalaman pertamanya ini untuk scoring film.

Berikut adalah postingan dari blog Mike Shinoda :

The score for The Raid is steadily moving along. In between Linkin Park studio sessions–which are also underway–I’m working on the feature-length score for this brutal Indonesian action movie. With a good chunk of the movie now sounding good, and a lot of great hype and reviews coming from folks who have gotten a chance to see the film, I’m excited to tell you a little more about it.

Writing big, nasty parts for a fast-paced action scene have come pretty naturally for me. There are lots of moments with big beats and unique, exciting sounds. But one thing I’ve found that’s different in writing for film (versus an album) is being aware of how and when to make the music transparent. The music needs to be invisible at times. Writing a Linkin Park song is usually about our personal stories, not someone else’s. And an LP song is designed to draw you in, to catch your ear with words, melodies, and sounds. Often, the techniques I might use to create a catchy sound or “hook” would actually take away from a scene in The Raid, so it’s been a fun challenge to learn when and how to let the movie’s story come first.

I also enlisted the help of Joe Trapanese, best know for his work with Daft Punk on the TRON score and soundtrack. Joe also did strings on the newest M83 album, “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.” Joe comes from a composing / arranging / film background, and we’re finding great ways to inform and compliment one anothers’ work in the music for this movie.

Here’s a cool (fan-made?) video for Joe’s favorite track he worked on, from M83′s new album, a song called “Wait”

Mike : Thank You Steve Jobs

Mike berkata di blognya, selama ini Linkin Park menggunakan produk Apple buatan Steve Jobs untuk membuat art atau poster, video, musik, iklan, LPTV, dan website. Semua pekerjaan "seni" Linkin Park selama ini menggunakan produk Apple, Mike mengucapkan terima kasih banyak kepada Steve Jobs.

(Hybrid Theory writing session, Apple Computer, circa 1998)

My family’s first computer was an Apple (a IIe, I think). I remember learning to type on it, playing a game that calculated your words-per-minute. My mom was studying to be a court reporter, and she could type very quickly; I would peck at letters with my two index fingers as fast as I could to see if I could get a score half as good as hers.

At the time, my Dad worked in aerospace engineering, and was impressed with the durability of the computer at work, so he decided to get one for the house. The whole family shared time on it, working and playing. I remember using it to write reports, and play games like LOGO, Loderunner, and Gold Rush. As I got older, my interestes changed, and my time on the “Macintosh” was eclipsed by a Nintendo, and later a Sony Discman.

In college, I was reintroduced to Apple in a new way. Having spent years honing my skills drawing and painting, I hadn’t yet had the chance to bring those illustrations into the computer. At Art Center, there was a computer lab–a huge underground complex of rooms filled with computers. And the computer of choice for the designers and artists at Art Center was Apple. I loved the design, inside and out, and it seemed built for making art. And once it was my computer for art, it became my computer for music.

It’s hard to think of all the ways that Steve Jobs’ vision has built a foundation for the products on which I work and create: Apple products have been used in making every piece of music Linkin Park has ever written, every album cover or poster we have ever designed, and all our music videos, ads, LPTV, and websites.

From the creation of our songs, art, and videos to the devices our fans enjoy them on, Steve Jobs’ vision has made an indelible imprint on everything we do. Multiplying that out into all the other bands and artists in the world who also use Apple products to write and record their songs or edit videos, movies, TV shows, art and photos, it’s hard to imagine anyone who has played a bigger role in shaping the world of modern art and music.

Thank you Steve Jobs,

Mike Membicarakan Tentang Pengaruh Apple Untuk Musisi

Seperti yang kita telah ketahui kemarin, pendiri Apple Steve Jobs telah meminggal dunia akibat kanker hati yang diderita beliau sejak 2004.

Fox News mempunyai video tentang Mike Shinoda yang membicarakan tentang pengaruh besar Apple terhadap musisi.

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda who says that in many ways, Apple computers enhance the creative process when making music.

“Most of the musicians that I know, almost to the man, everybody uses Apple computers. They’ve thought of the steps that you’re going to think of when you’re trying to create your thing. And that’s where the tools get invented to make better art.”

Tools invented by a man whose impact on the music business will be felt for generations.
