I'm pretty sure it's also new recordings of SH3 tracks, too.
I didn't hear anything about that, but I know that Michael Bassett (the director/writer of the movie, but you probably know that XD) said that the music will recall themes from past Silent Hill music (I believe he said that on his blog a while back). Mostly though, I think it's going to be all-new compositions, which is something I'm very excited for!
Drawing from Silent Hill 3 would be recalling past Silent Hill music.
The first film drew themes from the first 4 games. If it's new music, that's great, but it definitely should reference important songs from the third game. Otherwise, Daniel Licht could have done this soundtrack as well.
I'm really hoping for some new music this time around, with some mixed references to the previous game soundtracks. I would prefer some hints of the melodies from previous games, like the odd piano riff. They already used You're Not Here at the end credit sequence so not sure if they'll use it again.
New compositions would be very much welcomed! I'm wondering how much of a different approach Akira would use in composing for a movie rather than a game and what difference collaborating with Jeff Danna would make. I look forward to (hopefully) hearing the results. Playing a video game is more immersive than watching a movie and for me, the re-use of the video game soundtracks distracted me from being immersed in the movie. But drawing the viewer in with some powerful new music and watching it in the cinema would be an absolutely amazing experience! the type of music that will make you shudder and give you goose pimples, make the hair on the back of your neck stand up
