Exclamation TR: The Soundtrack - Sad news: Dimitrijevic *possibly* left out; affects Trailer

Edit: Check out the new TR theme/trailer music here

In anticipation of the trailer this evening I had written out an interview for Aleksandar Dimitrijevic to partake in. I received this disheartening reply (in my opinion)

I'm sorry to say but, from what I know at the moment, looks like none of the music I did for the game or the trailer will be used in Tomb Raider or the upcoming Tomb Raider Trailer.

Crystal Dynamics has the rights for all the music I did for this project, which means that I am not in position to share or release any of it. Weather this work will be used for something or publicly shared is totally up to CD.

Your questions are great and well thought out, and I would have enjoyed answering them, but given the current situation it would be pointless.

Once again, huge THANK YOU to the TR community for the overwhelming support and feedback I got for the little snippet of music you heard on podcast.

Looking forward to see the new trailer tonight, like everyone else.

Aleksandar

Dimitrijevic was named as the composer for the trailer by Karl Stewart in January, (and by the sound of the pm there still is a chance that he is).

This is an excerpt of the music he wrote for the trailer, heard in the GameInformer podcast way back in December 2010, which we may or may not hear tonight:



Had to make this thread to discuss the possible loss of his work, and to inform people if they don't hear it in the trailer tonight.
But most importantly to make sure that if the music is not featured in the trailer, the name Aleksandar Dimitrijevic isn't forgotten!!

Thoughts?

I'll just throw in my two cents and say that I'm particularly annoyed at CD: they now own Dimitrijevic's music whether they use it or not - this was the problem with every in-house composer of the TR series! Their music has been left to rot in the studio's soundbanks; never to see commercialisation for the public.

This is slightly devastating.

Okay, it's a lot devastating. I was hoping that music would be used in-game. I had a feeling it wouldn't be used for the trailer, but the game.... this is shocking.

If they replace that "style" with something different, I will be very angry.

Exactly! ... I don't care to be honest. If there will not be that piece of music, there will be something else...it will be epic anyway I bet.
