@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.
Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)
@Edmund<br>I’m in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally don’t pay attention to the music unless it’s really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestri’s Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately it’s surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like that’s something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because he’s had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmer’s material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>
It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? ThanksIt is somewhat bizarre that you all are thinking directors actually want to work with Junkie. Surely, the only reason anyone hires him is that they want Zimmer who is not available. Yes, some may have heard Mad Max but it would be silly to think anyone actively wants a Junk score.

Hi everyone. Does anybody know where i can get the Interstellar Complete Score ? It says Unofficial Release so I can't find it in any shop.

Damien, Moderator2017-10-15 12:45:41
Take a look at top of this page
This is the reason why you can't find it in any shop and you will not get an answer here.

Thanks for reply. I asked Watertower Music and they said they did limited edition and that it may be sold out. I was looking if somebody got it from them or if it's just a mistake on their part.

Hans Zimmer, wow, was für ein Musiker. (Musiker sind für mich alle, die eine ausführende Rolle innerhalb dieser Kunstform spielen). Er trifft den Kern, verstärkt und bereichert, was filmisch schon da ist. Ein Faszinosum für mich, denn ich liebe Filme, besonders wenn sie mit seiner Filmmusik untermalt sind.

No. The tracklist here is for archival purposes and to my knowledge there has been no expanded score release announced. It may or may not leak in future, but there is no way of predicting if and when that would happen.

Hi, i just want to say that in my country movie composers don't come very often, not even to countries neer mine. Hans, like James Horner (RIP), James Newton Howard, Steve Jablonsky, Ilan Eshkeri, and more others, i just want to say that it would be awesome to come to my country. Chile needs some of this. I know that is almost imposible to happen something like that writing just one messege in one page, i just want to express myself. I hope it does. Greetings to all.

ich hätte eine Frage zu "Man of Steel", Track 2: "Oil Rig".
Da ist bei meiner Kaufversion (Download bei google) eine Stimme zu hören bei Sekunde 17 Bevor der Beat losgeht. Es hört sich an wie eine Kinderstimme die "O...O..." ruft. Ich finde es witzig, wüsste aber gerne wie die Stimme da rein kommt.
War das Absicht, gibt es eine Story dazu, oder ist es eine Fehler in der Aufnahme?
Weiß jemand was dazu?

Hello,I'm a Chinese,there is a problem coufusing me,could I define a piece of music originally composed for a movie as BGM?Looking forward to your reply or other guys.thanks

flovia2017-12-17 01:13:44
I think BGM stands for any sort of background music, e.g. caffe music, game themes and, sometimes, film scores. But, IMO, "score" sounds way beter than "BGM"

p.s. Plz, do not my English, imma russian...

Dear Hans,

I am your number one fan. Playing and listening to your music brings on me a sense of ecstasy. When the perfect song hits, an ordinary day becomes extraordinary. Even if I've heard your songs a million times before, they affect me the same way. It's the pulse of the beat, the flow of the chord structure, a repetitive keyboard part, background harmonies or the thump of a bass line.
The overall production of your tracks can bring this euphoria, making everyone wonder how you got the music to work.
I spend hours cataloging albums and genres, creating timelines, lists and graphs, as if trying to solve a physics equation. Simply trying to make sense of it all takes hours. The constant search for a new, essential artist, album or song is something I do, all for the love of music, this is why I know you and Rick Wakeman should join hands and do a project together. I am certain you and Rick have a special bond and are ready to make a great project together.

If we didn't have music, we'd have no purpose,

Kind regards and big hug from me,
Gilberto Palma.

Christy2017-11-09 22:57:27
I pretty much know you will never see this, Mr. Zimmer.
But, I feel compelled to tell you that you have positively impacted my life with your music - which touches my core.
Thank you for creating. Thank you for your vision. And, above all else, thank you for your music which invigorates me. renews me, inspires me, and makes me both smile and cry. Thank you for being.

Hello, Im sorry for interrupting but I think that your music from interstellar was used in the documentary film from the production of the Czech television, in Czech it's called:Na cestě po západním grónsku
I don't know if they have the permission to use it so that's why am I texting you.

Mám pocit, že tyhle věci se neřeší přímo s autory..televize mají smlouvy s organizacemi typu OSA/Intergram apod., na základě kterých mohou použít jakoukoliv hudbu (samozřejmě za ní platí). Televize obecně používají hodně převzaté hudby (v upoutávkách apod.)..

Hi, my name is Carolina, I'm from Argentina, and I have to say sorry about my english, is very bad. I'm writing to you to ask for your help, Do you have access to Hans himself?. My boyfriend's birthday is next October 1st, and he is a hugh fan of Hans, his name is Marcos. Is almost impossible to us to go to Hans shows, because of the distance and the money we need to spend to travel to those places, that are really far from our country. I really don't know what I'm asking to you, maybe a greeting, a message from him, something to make Marcos happy, I know he wolud be really happy with any of those simple things. Thank you for read this, and I really apreciate if you can help me. Thanks a lot! Caro.
