Professional Purveyor of the Award Bait Song. Wrote the score for numerous films, working alongside James Cameron for three of his most successful films. He composed the scores for many family and Animated Films before his commercial success scoring Titanic.Most of his work is known for his incorporation of the Ethereal Choir and Celtic instruments, as well as synth sounds. However, listeners tired of his "cute" sound, heard most prominently on his scores for Titanic, Legends Of The Fall or Avatar, can find much more exciting (and seminal) material in his music for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (his breakthrough within the industry), Krull, The Rocketeer and Willow. The latter is one of the firsts to include previously mentioned musical elements, but your pants will fall down the floor once you listen to something like this and compare it with the mushy ethereal vocals he's most famous for.Known somewhat less fondly for reusing his music from previous films. Also along these lines, he has a habit of directly quoting themes and motives from 20th century Russian masters.
