I’m going to see the movie again on Tuesday, but after the first viewing I would say yes and no. The cues on the album are mostly in chronological order (towards the end at least) and I would say ‘Home’, ‘The Oil’, ‘Variation 15’ and ‘End Titles’ play basically unchanged in the movie. However, in my experience the ticking sound is much more present throughout the entire movie and speeds up and slows down during tense moments. On the top of my head, there is not a cue that played in the film that stood out for not being on the album, except for the one when Tommy and Gibson are racing the stretcher across the beach. It’s the staccato violin or cello cue. I don’t know what kind of cue was composed for the prologue since I haven’t seen it, but judging from the comments here that cue is missing as well.Totally agree on that note . Genius has been one of most unique scores in ages and the music is greatQuestion to all the people who watched it<br><br>Is the score a good representation of the movie? Or do we have another score which misses the best music from the movie like 'Escape from ship' or 'No time for caution'.<br><br>Very enjoyable score and after watching the show last final last night bought the soundtrack. BrilliantWhat? Mike, this is definitely inherent to the Zimmer/Nolan relationship and to Nolan's absurd soundtrack direction. Two-note Batman theme ring a bell? Nolan hasn't just been tying Zimmer's hands behind his back. He's unwittingly brainwashed him and, subsequently, most of Zimmer's remote control production minions into thinking the way forward for soundtracks is in non-melodic, non-developing constructs.
Found one of the main themes.....<br><br>Sounds pretty much like the rising music in Pirates 2 when the Kraken shows up to eat Jack Sparrow....Heard Hans Zimmer at Merriweather Post Pavilion. What a mind bowing performance.Hey Hybrid,<br><br>Will they ever release the track they pieced together for the 7 Minute IMAX Preview/Prologue?just commented on the WaterTower Music yt channel. (i waited a day lol!) <br><br>Hans and his team made me the best birthday present ever : )<br><br>i like seeing the "few notes" principle Hans explained in his Masterclass. this score takes it to a master high level.<br><br>i would like to say in passing that the experiment on Inferno  (ambient music) can be felt through this score. and i love it!<br><br>thanks Hans, Lorne, Andrew, Benjamin, and anyone involved. thanks Hybrid Soldier, your fan website is the best!The rendition of What Are You Going To Do When You're Not Saving The World in the new Justice League trailer is pretty cool, at least it shows they have not forgotten this theme :-p
My one hope is that this doesn't mean Chris Nolan will be tying Zimmer's hands behind his back for future scores. If he wants to do that here, okay. I can get over one score. But I hope Nolan doesn't keep calling for this non-melodic approach.That was one of my favorites, wish it was on the OST.Yeah, was also looking for that track.Nolan's liner notes, which explains a lot on the score :<br><br>"British people are raised on the story of Dunkirk. The events of the evacuation are sacred ground, not to be ventured onto without great care. Daunting for a filmmaker. But the things that place Dunkirk so firmly at the heart of a nation's self-image are the very qualities that make it one of the greatest stories in human history. Irresistible to a filmmaker.<br><br>This film required a remarkable creative team, and Hans Zimmer, as well as having been a valued member in the past, knows how to assemble his own great team. From our first meeting, where I described to the percussionist, Satnam Ramgotra, the unusual rhythmic structure of the script and how it needed to be amplified by the music, through the finishing touches applied by Lorne Balfe during our last weeks of mixing, the importance of teamwork was paramount. The process nicely echoed the circumstances of the events we were trying to honour- a triumph of communal effort, not individual heroism.<br><br>When I called Hans one night with a one word suggestion- "Nimrod", I wasn't sure he'd accept experimenting with an existing theme for the climax of the film. To my surprise, he knew just who to call to achieve the deconstruction of Elgar's monumental theme, a theme as beloved to the English as Dunkirk itself, often played at ceremonial occasions and funerals. It's a theme which (I never admitted to Hans) I am incapable of hearing without feeling the surprising weight of my father's coffin on my shoulder. Hans brought in Benjamin Wallfisch, who, in collaboration with the great music editor Alex Gibson and myself, fashioned a modern reworking that grows out of the sights and sounds of the movie- tapping the original's resonances without feeling unearned. Hans's brass accents complete the piece's power to move without sentimentalizing.<br><br>Hans went on to incorporate Elgar's theme elsewhere in the score, a score that on this album has been divided into cues, but which in the film plays as one long piece with a unifying and complex rhythmic and tonal structure. The structure of the screenplay itself builds upon the shepherd tone concepts I first explored with composer David Julyan in the soundtrack for "The Prestige", but here Zimmer's team (in particular Andy Page and Andrew Kawczynski) and I added a whole new rhythmical structure. This can't be fully represented on the album, but in the film it is able to integrate sound effects and even story structure into the very fabric of the music in a new and unique manner.<br><br>The rigid structure, to which we adamntly stuck, at times proved frustrating for the musicians, but they persevered and produced extraordinary cues based on unusual solutions (such as a recording of my watch that Hans and his team adapted into many different rhythmic voices). The disciplined procedural approach stopped the music for "Dunkirk" from ever resorting to arbitrary cinematic emotionalism, something Hans and I always felt was vital, given the inherent emotional heft of the real life events. This has been a long and hard journey, but I am proud of the final results, and hope that you will share my appreciation for the talent of the artists who worked so hard for so long on this score.<br><br>CHRISTOPHER NOLANI don't think emotion and melodies = Oscar worthy. Dunkirk's score fits in with the movie far better than Chappie.
Saw the film again last night and there are a ton of great cues missing, especially from the first half of the film. It's a crime the cue when they carry the stretcher onto the ship wasn't included.The answer is: Christopher Nolan ;-)It doesn't crossfade as much as, say, The Dark Knight Rises or Inception, but there is  very rarely dead air. I haven't listened enough times to determine when it does and doesn't crossfade, but the tracks are, at least, very closely edited together.I Love Hans' stuff but this score didn't really do it for me. I don't see how people are repping this as Oscar worthy but trash something like CHAPPiEs score, something with actual emotion and melodies.This soundtrack will win an oscar . It's great to see Balfe back with Zimmer. Dream team

Atlanta Concert - Tuesday, July 18th, 2017.

The concert was good last night, but not great. Re: there was a preponderance of bass that "washed out" the sound of all the instruments and detracted from the overall music. Wish I could have told him. The bass was so powerful that my wife's chest actually hurt afterward! Absolutely wonderful music and as a musician, I can really appreciate the talent, but the bass needs to be taken down several notches. Don't know if he'll ever see this. Actually listening to the Da Vinci Code score right now.

Dear Hans,

I'm french and drove 400 km to be in Nîmes on june the 24th and I've never felt so lucky than this day.
To see and to hear your musicians and you playing was a dream. I fell in love with your music when I was about 15 and had tears in my eyes when hearing the Rain Man theme.
You're a great composer M. Zimmer and a great man. Respectful to your musicians and audience.

I hope you'll be back in France soon, not just for me but for all those who couldn't see you until then and, even if I have more kilometers to drive, I'll do them easily to have the chance to see you again on stage.

Affectionately.

Gaëlle

Live on Tour - Antwerpen 2017

Dear Hans

the experiment whom I have just lived this day was fabulous, you and your orchestra did nothing but climb levels throughout this extraordinary concert and I hope that it will climb of them others during the rest of your round and your life.

During all the concert, I did nothing but admire your work which is stunning like your production and your fastener towards your orchestra and your public .

Pirate of the Caribbean was brilliant especially the solos of Tina Guo, I had even shivers of them on my chair like for Gladiator, Inception, The Dark knight Small channels without forgetting celebrates it King lion where one was pleased immense to hear the voice of Mr Lebo M (Lebohang Morake) at the time of the beginning of the music.

I hope to re-examine you one day on the Belgian territory for your next round while hoping that there is one of them.

I wish you a good wind for your future productions, it was a pleasure of listening to you and to see you in truth even if I were far from the scene and it will be always a pleasure of listening to your musics.

Sincere greetings still a large whole thank you for what you do and courage for the continuation.

Live Tour Sound Levels - Glasgow edition

Leaving this comment here as not sure where else one would feedback on such things but...

I was at the show in Glasgow last night (18/06/2017) and sadly had a similar experience to quite a few of the posters below. The sound levels were really, really off and made the melody inaudible for most of the concert. For the first half of the concert it seemed there was some effort to counteract this (i.e. the pieces would find their level about half way through each one) but the second half of the concert was just a wall of sound. For example, The Wonder Woman Theme ("Is She With You?") was utterly unrecognizable except that Hans Zimmer made reference to it once the piece ended. It made me sad that all the build, nuance and explosive musical climax that HZ and his team are known for were lost in the cacophony.
I left feeling really angry and to be honest angry for the performers most of all. You can see that they play their socks off, are ridiculously talented and love what they do, but they were greatly misrepresented by the poor levels last night.

To be clear, I saw this concert last year in another city and it was amazing. When the music is allowed to shine it is truly wonderful. So my issue was with the poor sound quality rather than the music selection itself. I find it quite shocking that for a tour that has been going for well over a year, with a set running order, talented musicians and crew, and with the technology that we now have, that the sound could be such a disaster.

That being said, if you get a chance go see this tour. The lighting and staging are done well. Hans' anecdotes are charming and the musicians are a joy to watch. When the sound levels are on point the music is powerful and moving, and if you are fan of his body of work you really need to hear Hans Zimmer's compositions live.

Thanks you for cheering me up in London on the 16th June. My Dad had a near fatal heart attack at the age of 85. He's only just alive but insisted I came to the concert at the SSE. Although a sad time you helped me get through the day and night. Gladiator was done so beautifully that night I balled my eyes out throughout the performance.

Your're an inspiration and one the greats.

I saw Hidden Figures this weekend and as a former adolescent NASA geek from the 60's I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the stories. There were only two places in the film where the music grabbed my attention. Those times were after John Glenn's lift-off as he climbed into orbit and when he had his ticker tape parade. Can you tell me, is that a snippet of Carmen Ohio I am hearing?" If so, it is a great tribute to Sen. Glenn and his love for the Buckeye State. If not, chalk it up to failing hearing and an vivid imagination.

Having been a member of the OSU Marching Band, I assure you that you did hear the first 5-6 notes of "Carmen, Ohio" (the Ohio State alma mater) during the launch sequence.

Glenn himself went to Muskingum College, about 50 miles away from Ohio State. I don't know what their alma meter is.

Dear Mr Zimmer,

I would also like to join the comments about the concert in Budapest. I traveled with my mother from Novi Sad, Serbia and we bought the best tickets available, since we are both devoted fans. My mother started following Your work since she was a teen from the early 80s and she introduced me to movie scores for the first time when I was a child. Ever since, we listened to every new score with great admiration and excitement and we were hoping to have the opportunity to hear the live performance.

Finally, we bought the tickets for Budapest, but instead of the long anticipated evening filled with divine beauty of music, we were devastated during the second part of the concert.

The first part was truly what You are known for and what people want and expect to hear. I must say that the theme from the Gladiator moved me deeply and it represented the high-peak of the evening. The themes from The Lion King and the DaVinci Code were simply perfect and incredibly emotional as well. I would especially like to praise the solo sections of Ms Tina and Mr Lebo.

From all the magnificent and beautiful themes from King Arthur (which I consider inevitable to perform), Pearl Harbor, Rush, Spirit the Stallion of the Cimarron, The Last of the Samurai and Tears of the Sun and many many others, the setlist of the second part of the concert was a painful disappointment.

Instead of blissful peace it brought nothing but aggression and destruction with that much emphasis on the electric guitar. It is the type of music that goes quite well with the superhero movies, nevertheless we expected more themes with the symphonic orchestra instead of all that electronics. When I came home, the first thing I did was to listen to the good old themes I mentioned above, just to erase the memory of the evening before.

However, I would go to the concert again without a second thought if the setlist would be modified and performed with more acoustic instruments and piano to represent the very best of Your work, which is how You initially won the audience.

All of the above was said and written in hope that You will take these remarks and the comments of Your longterm fans in consideration.

Yours faithfully,
Sara

Oh ... I'm supposed to write in English ... this will be nothing :-) Sorry guys ... I want to talk about my emotions here ... I can not bend in the language ...

Oh... Ich soll in englisch schreiben... das wird nichts :-) Sorry Jungs... ich möchte hier über meine Emotionen Reden... da kann ich mich nicht in der Sprache Verbiegen...

Meine Freundin schenkte mir zum 50. Geburtstag Karten für Hans Zimmer in Leipzig... wir selber wohnen bei Köln... und wollten eigentlich 2016 ins Konzert nach Köln... leider hat es sich nicht ergeben und meine Freundin hat gemerkt, dass ich deswegen etwas traurig war... also dann nun 2017 die große Überraschung zum Geburtstag -> Karten für Hans Zimmer in Leipzig. Und ich kenne Leipzig. Eine tolle Stadt mit tollen Menschen... also riesen Freude... hat sie super gemacht.

Und was waren wir begeistert. Ich kann die negativen Kritiken hier nicht verstehen. Scheinen ja viele super Livemusiker dabei zu sein, die schon Konzerte ohne Ende gegeben haben, um sich hier als Fachmänner austauschen zu können... Ich sag dann gerne -> selber besser machen :-)

Aber natürlich kann auch ich Meckern ;-) Aber nicht wirklich... Das Konzert war großartig und wir waren drei Stunden lang Begeistert... und meine Freundin hat für Filmmusik nichts übrig... nun ist sie Hans Zimmer Fan... Wir waren von der ersten bis zur letzten Minuten wie elektrisiert... was bestimmt auch an der Bühnenshow gelegen hat... mit diesen fantastischen Musikern... einer besser als der anderen... und doch eine große musikalische Familie... Fantastisch... Herzlichen Glückwunsch Hans, dass Du dich mit so tollen Leuten umgeben kannst und so toll zusammenarbeiten könnt... Mein Traum - einmal mit Euch auf der Bühne stehen... ich kann nur kein Instrument... vielleicht Triangel ;-)

Ich habe mich schon als Kind für Filmmusik begeistert und hatte/habe eine entsprechend große LP/CD-Sammlung von Hunderten von Filmmusiken... In den Anfängen noch Ennio Morricone (wo das Konzert leider abgesagt wurde) John Williams, Nino Rota, John Berry, Henry Mancini... usw. und mit Rain Man gesellte sich die erste Hans Zimmer LP dazu... und da sind noch einige wundervolle dazu gekommen... Black Rain, Backdraft, Crimson Tide, usw.

...und hier kommt nun mein Meckern am Konzert... warum nur drei Stunden? Wer so viele tolle Filmmusik geschrieben hat kann doch Ruhig ein acht Stunden Konzert geben :-) Jeder Fan hat bestimmt die eine oder andere Filmmusik vermisst... so hätte ich wahnsinnig gerne etwas aus Rango gehört. Das Thema aus Rango würde sich auch perfekt für Live eignen... meine Meinung... Und ich wollte eigentlich in Leipzig nach dem Konzert noch "Zugabe Rango" rufen... aber Ihr hatte Euch den Feierabend redlich verdient. Da wurde über drei Stunden mit einer Leidenschaft und einem Einsatz ein Konzert zelebriert... Großartig!

Aber lieber Hans, warum will ich unbedingt Rango hören? Weil dies eine kleine Geschichte von mir ist... die Du, falls Du mal Rango in die Live-Liste mit aufnimmst, gerne erzählen kannst... was Fans von Dir beim Filmschauen denken... :-)
Ich habe damals mit meiner Freundin und ihren Kindern im Kino Rango gesehen... und habe mich die ganze Zeit gefragt "Verdammt. Vom wem ist diese geniale Filmmusik???" Wie gesagt, ich habe mich von Kindheit an für Filmmusik interessiert... und kannte auch einiges von Dir... aber ich überlegte "Morricone? Nein zu modern... Williams? Bestimmt nicht... Wer macht den noch Western Musiken? Horner? Passt auch nicht... und so grübelte ich über diese fantastische Musik, anstatt mir den Film anzuschauen :-) ...und als der Abspann kam... und alle Leute aufstanden und gehen wollten, blieb ich sitzen... Ich musste Wissen wer das Komponiert hatte - HANS ZIMMER! Ja klar... der Hans der kann's ;-) Am nächsten Tag hatte meine Sammlung eine neue CD

Lieber Hans... vielen Dank für das großartige Konzert. Der Dank gilt allen großartigen Musikern die an diesem Abend auf der Bühne waren und uns begeistert haben. Ein unvergessliches Erlebnis... und ich erzähle all meinen Freunden von diesem Erlebnis... Wir freuen uns noch auf ganz viele tolle Filmmusik von Dir und wünschen Euch allen das Beste...

Liebe Grüße

Dear Hans Zimmer,

I just came home from your 2017.06.01 Budapest concert. I have to say that the first half of your concert was superb (which included Gladiator and Pirates of the Caribbean), but the second half was a huge disappointment. It resembled more a heavy metal concert than an actual symphonic concert. I could scarcely recognize any musical themes during the second half, seemed like you just left your talent in the first half. Also I deeply missed the music of King Arthur, which is one of your (if not) best score. Please next time try harder and leave out the heavy metal stuff, your audience loves you for your melodic orchestra and not the brainless bass.

Sincerely: Endre

Hello Hans Zimmer,

We visited your concert yesterday here in Budapest. Unfortunately it was a big disappointment. The first half was OK, but the second half was terrible. It was like a very loud heavy metal concert, we had to cover our ears and not just our ears, but we also had to close our eyes, because of the constant, annoying stroboscope. It was harmful for both eyes and ears and we have seen children and even a pregnant woman in the concert. I am sure it was not healthy for them either. We had to leave 10 minutes before the end because my wife got sick.

What a disappointment...

Regards, Peter

Dear Hans,

me and my wife visited the concert in Leipzig, Germany on May 24th 2017. We are big fans of Hans’ music and were in joyful anticipation to see him playing live some of our most favorite songs.

We had tickets for the best category right in front of the stage. By the way: we also visited John Williams and we have tickets for James Newton Howard as well.

But sadly this concert was a total disaster and we drove back home with nothing else than disappointment and anger. Compared to John Williams, where we were totally excited and told everybody about the great concert, we weren’t able to do this for the Hans Zimmer concert.

Let me explain in short, how we experienced this Hans’ concert.

1) Sound
The sound was horrible. The bass (especially sub-bass) was way to loud. Everything was booming, the sound was ‚muddy‘ and totally distorted. Vocals were hearable and understandable only if the band was playing very quitely.

At least, many people had to cover their ears because of the high loudness. And some people left the concert because of the bad sound. And just as a note: such high levels are harmful to health and if you like your fans to hear your music in the future, you shouldn’t kill their hearing ability!

Front of House was at the very end of the hall - so they didn’t hear how bad it was in front of the stage - and the most expensive seats.

I have to say this was no professional work. It seems like they just tried to kill any noise by turning up the volume to the max (like in the 80s) instead of optimizing sound and setup adjusted to the hall and the audience.

2) Lightshow and screen
The lightshow was a lowlight as well.

Almost the whole lightshow was based on strobe effects and flashing lights - no matter if the moving hads were flashing or the psychedelic moving images on the big screen were flickering and flashing. I was not able to watch this concert longer than a few seconds and then I had to close my eyes for a few seconds before I was able to watch again. Two hours of strobing and flickering lights, all the way from light to dark and back again in high frequencies was very exhausting. And it wasn’t only me. I saw a lot of people keeping their heads down and were watching the ground and not the stage.

Lucky me, I’m not an epileptic….

The big screen was used only for this irritating images and sometimes for pre-recorded! scenes, where some of the musicians were playing their instruments instead of showing the band or Hans’ playing live or if Hans’ is telling stories about the songs, his live or his friends and band colleagues.

At least this kind of lightshow and use of the big screen didn’t make it possible to see the artists faces. So it’s a bit like with the sound… You couldn’t hear them, but you couldn’t see them as well.


So why do you visit a concert? Right, to see the artist play and hear, what they play. Both wasn’t possible or a joy that day.

There are many clips on YouTube, where you can see and hear what we experienced. And no, the distorted sound is not caused by „bad mics“ of the smartphones...


I’m very sad to say this, but this was the worst concert of my live. I’m not able to tell anything good about this event - and everybody was expecting the total opposite. And to be honest - I wish I could get my money back, for the very first time in my live after visiting a concert. It was such a waste of time and money :(

Dear Hans Zimmer Team,
what is up with your Live-Tour sound? Almost all of the eventim-FanReports for your live tour talk about deafening bass, drowned-in-noise vocals, actually exploding speakers and people leaving early. I was in Leipzig, your technicians might remember the guy who asked them for earplugs.

I will alert the emissions-protection-bureau about this. Because submitting People to 100+dB without proper warning is actually illegal here.

In truth, I would like my money back.

Hello Hans Zimmer,

My boyfriend and i went to your concert in Forum yesterday.
My boyfriend have been a fan of you, since he was a teenager, renting your soundtracks in the public libary. He is 32 now. I gave his tickets for the show as a surprise and he had been talking about it every day for more than 2 months. He knows facts about dreams you had when you were younger, why you chose a certain tune and he has watched the thin red line at least a 1000 times, just for the music.
We came an hour early yesterday all ready and so happy. Then you began. Everyhing was wrong. The music was at least 25 % too loud. We had no chance what so ever to the seperat instruments. People were covering their ears most of the time. The light show was enough to make anyone get an epileptic seizure.
What we love about your music and you, is that you can create a universe with one sound. Yesterday was more like being at a heavy metal concert. You had no reason for the gospel singers, because you could not hear ONE word they were saying.
The last song you played, on the piano alone, was amazing. And half of the lion king and half of pirates o t c. But the rest sounded like being at copenhagen hell (a rock festival).
You have meant everything for my boyfriends musical taste. And he was so sad yesterday, because you completly shattered his idea of that.
We had to walk home instead of taking the train, because we were just so angry and had so much to talk about.

I am so so sorry about last night. I wish it had never heppened.
Regards Mille

I'm with you! Many of the tours visit different places of Europe but no Spain. I sure would go if there was one in Spain. Thanks!

Is it possible that The Borgias soundtrack for season 2 and 3 composed by Trevor Morris will ever be released?
