OK. So my 2 cents.
I've been really really trying to stay spoiler free so may be missing info from "leaks" etc.
Hypersleep pods. Everyone snoozing. Panning shots starting exterior then a wee tour of the ship.
Probably grand and yet melodic.
2. The Covenant
Wakey wakey! Skeleton crew awaken. Busy about. Want me to fetch your slippers for you type stuff.
Probably more main stream and chilled out. Background music during the hustle of waking up and getting to work.
3. Neutrino Burst
No idea. Woken by turbulence from a distant supernova? Lol. That'd allow them to be awake to get the distress call/beacon/whatever. No clue on this one.
Feels like it should be a more upbeat and "exciting" track.
4. A Cabin On The Lake
David sending the distress call/beacon/whatever.
Probably dark and foreboding.
6. Planet 4 / Main Theme
Arrival at whatever planet it is they get to. "Paradise" I guess. Wide shot of planet. Exteriors of Covenant.
Probably grand and majestic.
7. Launcher Landing
Well this one speaks for itself. It's a bumpy ride.
Track probably as chaotic as the descent to keep our pulses racing.
8. Wheat Field
After landing having a wee poke about. Wheat! Wow! Who planted it? Who cares! Let's go stamp on some spore pods.
No idea what it'll sound like.
Oops!!! Always putting my foot in my mouth. Though this time my foot ain't in my mouth but a beast will soon climb out of it (didn't avoid that spoiler lol).
Probably quite quiet and suspenseful. The calm before building to a crescendo as they try to return to the lander.
10. The Med Bay
Birth of the cute wee baby (at the expense of a perfectly decent back).
Probably eclectic and loud.
11. Grass Attack
Neos jumping about all over the place. Panic. Fear. Gunfire. Explosions.
I'd assume this one would be as frantic as the scene. Probably with cunningly timed percussion blasts to amplify visual "jumps".
12. Dead Civilization
After David saves the day (hopefully not on a motorcycle lol), they go through the dead and mummified remains.
David leads them into the engineer (or other humanoid race) "temple" building, still under the guise of Mr Nice Guy.
Folk try and patch themselves up and recover after the evens that have transpired since landing.
It's probably at this point the adult Neo messes up that chick, and maybe others.
Track? No idea. There is the probibility of interesting conversation/dialog. David still manipulating the crew into a false sense of security. Maybe with some bs story about what happened to the dead guys outside.
14. Payload Deployment
Flashback to David going full genocide on the race of folk and the ensuing transformations, slaughter and general craziness.
Track as mental as the scene. Probably starting quiet (as the ship approaches) then building to a feverish pace as the music mirrors the carnage.
15. Command Override**
Vote of no confidence on Mr My-Face-Is-About-To-Be-Hugged. After the catastrophic failures and carnsge caused after landing, by poor decisions made by acting captain. Daniels tells him to shove it and takes command. Orders the 2nd drop ship down from Covenant.
Track? I dunno. Musical lol
16. Face Hugger**
Mr There-Is-Nothing-On-My-Face-Yet goes away in a strop with David as the others return to the evacuation point. After the bickering, he goes with David to get some ice to cure his butt hurt.
And gets face hugged for his trouble.
Track will probably start jovial and chirpy, becoming more atmospheric and threatening. Guaranteed sudden loudness when fh strikes then quite frantic as he struggles.
Then cut to next.
17. Chest Burster**
Owch! Wakes up. Only him and David. Asks for a nice cup of tea. Explodes.
Quiet then mental.
18. Lonely Perfection
Baby protomorph! Awww. First of its kind. How lovely. It goes away to eat some folk...woohoo!
Track probably mirroring the violence of the birth reducing to a slower pace to reflect David''s awe at his creation.
19. Cargo Lift**
Battle with protomorph on or near the 2nd dropship. They'll not know about it as they weren't there as they left him with David.
Track exciting and loud.
20. Bring It To My Turf
Probably a line said by said by Tennessee, seems like the kind of thing he'd say. Get the Protomorph into the ship then show it a rather unpleasant time.
Mid finale here. Doubt the pace of the score will drop. Fast and exciting.
21. Terraforming Bay
Final showdown. Daniels and/or Tennessee mess up the protomorph.
Loud exciting crescendo.
22. Alien Covenant Theme
Credits and post credit scene.
Credits music probably soft and calming to help us regulate out heart rates after 2 hours of f***ING awesomeness!
My ** marked ones are the way I think this could pan out. Based on the Prologue and 1st trailer, I get the feeling there will be a bit of a pissing contest between Oram and Daniels.
She is married to sick/dead/on covenant captain. He is healthy/alive/on the ground acting captain.
You can tell he resents her, it seems fairly obvious from the prologue and the trailer.
"Are you sure about this?...we don't know what the fuck's out there..."
"F**k you bi**h, I'm the boss now your hubby isn't here. I'm going to send the crew to its death just because you don't like the idea. I wanted to give a speech and I didn't get to before we arrived, seems reasonable to kill everyone just to apease my narcissism and calm my butt-hurt."
So I think there will be a power struggle and a switch of command after every decision made since landing was a stupid one. Daniels takes charge. A butt hurt Oram. And a protomorph born from it! Yes!
Anyway. As I say, I've been limiting my exposure to spoilers and leaks as best I can so I'm probably a million miles off on most points.
Soooo.....I'll shut up now lol
Take care folks.
