thanks4:05 of "STEALTH" some of the best soulful action music I've heard from a Zimmer score. I wonder who wrote that particular section. This the type of stuff I would play trying to rush a pregnant woman to the hospitalIn case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.<br><br>Job well done, my friend.@Hybrid <br>You don't add anymore Trevor Morris things ?Probably for chronological purposes<br>even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that time
i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene.<br>===============================<br><br><br>I agree. <br><br>And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.<br><br>People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.<br><br>It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...<br><br>It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.<br>===========================<br><br><br>I totally get what you're saying. I also get kinda frustrated when a "big" track overshadows an entire score. The best recent examples are IMO the Transformers scores. I don't blame folks for gravitating towards the epic sound and the power anthems, but A LOT of subtle, equally great tracks end up getting completely ignored. And just like you, they're usually my favorite tracks. <br><br>But why most people don't think like us?<br><br>The reason I think is because those "big tracks" are presented - most of the time - during the most memorable moments in those movies. They immediately get people's attention. They're stuck in their mind along with those iconic images. And I think by nature, people are more attracted to the big and "in your face". For most casual listeners the more subtle tracks work in the context of the movie and they absolutely do notice them while watching the actual film. But unlike you and I they don't feel the need to listen to them separately. They're too busy paying attention to the "big track". That goes even for some score fans.<br><br>While tracks like the Star War theme, the Indy theme, the Transformers theme, the Gladiator theme, the Godfather theme, the Armageddon theme, the Pirates theme, the Lord of the Rings theme are so big, melodic abd easily digestable that folks simply can't resist them. And when there are vocals involved as well (like Gladiator) it's even better, because people treat it as a full-blown song. An emotional song that they can listen to over and over again.<br><br>The subtle tracks simply can't win against that. Sadly....<br><br>By the way, speaking of The Island, My Name is Lincoln (as much as I like it) is not my favorite track of the score. The more subtle opening track (The Island Awaits You) and especially the Lima One Alpha theme are my personal favorite tracks. Of course, they're nowhere near My Name is Lincoln, in terms of popularity.<br>Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?Yeah that is true, can’t argue there lol<br><br>And is it me or does “Calypso Must Be Released” sound like Black Hawk Down?To be fair there is a lot of King Arthur in At World's End too. Just the general feeling you get from the action tracks in both scores is virtually identical. Hell, one of the main themes from King Arthur even appears when Bootstrap Bill remembers that Will is his son.
@MrTweedy<br>That’s totally fine, everyone has their own favorite HZ scores, which is awesome!<br><br>It’s funny though, I feel like DMC is far more schizophrenic than AWE. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love DMC. It’s the score that got me into Hans Zimmer. But still, I feel like a major part of that score is note-for-note reprises of cues/themes from COTBP. Not to mention the temp tracking of King Arthur.<br><br>AWE always felt far more original to me, especially considering that the entire tone of the music shifts from the “rock’n’roll” sound of the first two to a more traditional score (at least by Hans Zimmer standards lol)@MrTweedy<br><br>Just curious, what scores do you considered to be Zimmer's best?The Pinnacle of Hans' career?<br>Although I really like this score, I don't agree. But hey, I know it's just a matter of opinion, okay? ;)<br><br>Of course it shows Hans strengths in almost every area (action, drama, romance, comedy...) but for me it's too much of a medley of previous works, without much personality.<br>It feels a bit like a palette with too many colors. From the action sequences borrowed from Drop Zone, to the Morricone inspirations for Jack's Sequences, to Gladiator's duduk that ended up there with no real reason, to a beautiful Love Theme that brings another new shape to the sonic identity... it's like the score sometimes goes schizophrenic.<br><br>Though each individual idea is really enjoyable to listen to, I think Hans has made scores that are much more cohesive and enjoyable as a whole!i also think it is an underrated score. especially the action music has a couple of nice touches. i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene. the emotional music is nothing ground breaking, but a lovely listen.Y'know, it's funny. The big names that always get the most attention in film music are often not my favorite tracks of the scores they represent. Now We Are Free, Arrival to Earth, Like A Dog Chasing Cars, Star Wars Main Theme, Indiana Jones Main Theme, Infinite White, One Day, Circle of Life, The Fellowship. Though they are the most well known, they're usually nowhere near the peak of quality of their scores. <br><br><br>I noticed this the most in Hans Zimmer's concerts (not World of Hans Zimmer mind you). The parts he played from The Dark Knight Trilogy in particular usually had the least substance. Just the bombastic tracks. The only choice I agreed with was Time from Inception. There was no Am I Not Merciful, A Watchful Guardian, Sunrise Over Pride Rock, none of that. <br><br><br>Even with Star Wars, the main theme and the Force theme are solid pieces of music, but neither come close to the beauty of Princess Leia's theme, or the wondrous Yoda theme. <br><br><br>Same with Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship Reunited, Very Old Friends, Gollum, and The Breaking of the Fellowship are much more substantial pieces than The Fellowship Theme alone in my opinion. <br><br><br>Can't say anything about My Name is Lincoln because I haven't finished The Island score yet, but yeah. I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.
Thanks guys, will check out these cues.Hmm, aside from "The Guardian Suite' I don't think I've heard any other tracks from this score. And I have a feeling I'm not the only one....lol.<br><br>Speaking of.........I would most definitely put "The Guardian Suite' right up there next to "Now We Are Free" and "My Name is Lincoln". It's *that* good and powerful. Shame that the movie is not as popular as The Island and Gladiator. If it was, that suite would've been one of the most popular film score tracks with millions of views on YouTube. It certainly deserves it.Very underrated score. As already pointed out by a couple of reviewers, it's a nice, little throwback to MV/RC's Golden Years and Trevor's own scores from 1997 to 2002. Give it a listen if you can. It's not long and it's worth it.The action cue "Escape" is easily one of my favorite from Powell. And the final cue for the scene right before the ending is absolutely beautiful. Face/Off is actually my favorite Powell score I think.If we're talking about the complete score, then<br><br>The Merry-Go-Round of Life<br>Airport Chase<br>Escape<br>Mikey's Grave<br>Boat Chase<br>Homecoming<br><br>is a good sampler of the absolute highlights to get you started. "Homecoming" (called "Ready for the Big Ride, Bubba" on the album release even though a different cue has that name on the complete score) is actually a really beautiful cue, one of my favorites from Powell.

I was wondering if Hans Zimmer took any inspiration from Ysaye's Sonata Number 2. The theme is very similar to Interstellar's "Day One Dark."

Hello to LA from Germany! I LOVE Hans Zimmers music-my favorite is Inception which I listen to on all my long car rides to all the different theaters I work-just incredibly awsome! I got tickets for a concert in Berlin April 2015 with his music. Will Mr. Zimmer be there as well?
I wish I could meet and greet!
Best, Stephan

Watched Interstellar two days ago. What really stays with me is the awesome soundtrack, I mean, holy shit it was good. The soundtrack is spellbinding in the way Tchaikovski's music is. The Interstellar soundtrack will S.T.A.Y. with me for a long long time. Thank you Hans.

It's nice to see you finally released the "spinning Endurance docking" cue, but so far it seems it's exclusive to iTunes, and not on Amazon or Google Play. Will it remain an exclusive or will it be released on them too?

Your score for "Interstellar" is truly your finest work. I am a sound designer/composer myself, and a former professor of sound design. When I taught, I used movie scores to help the student understand good design (in context with the moment shown on screen).

"Interstellar" goes beyond 'good' - it is profound with its expressions of joy, hope, anguish, faith, anger, fear and other emotions too numerous to mention, invoking a sense of majesty. Thank you.

The Interstellar score hit me in a way no other film music has in a long time. Thank you for that, and please find some way to put it out on vinyl. Something about it makes me think that's the perfect way to capture all the density in the songs. The organs would really come to life.

I would like to thank Hans Zimmer for a wonderful soundtrack. I was blown away with the Lion King and the Thin Red Line Soundtrack. In my opinion out of all the collaborations with Chris Nolan the Interstellar Soundtrack is the best. The countdown sequence. The organ use during a piece I can´t remember. I would also like to thank everyone for sharing information about the cd. I hope they come out with a more complete version.

It is such a shame that the soundtracks of the climax is not included in the CD. I noticed after I already purchased it. If I want the complete album, I have to purchase again? Such lame marketing is not clever at all.

Purchased and downloaded your latest Interstellar soundtrack. What a disappointment that the obviously most popular score "Day One Dark" is absent from the album. I read that it will be released as a bonus track later.

What a obvious grab for cash and a great way of treating your fans like d**k heads!

I will, from now on, illegally download all your material.

FYI, "Day One Dark" is downloadable for free already Muhahaha!

Interstellar:
Der Soundtrack wurde nicht vor dem Film veröffentlicht... Ok, finde ich in Ordnung. Aber warum zum Teufel fehlen so viele Tracks aus dem Film? Man soll sich nach dem Film auf den Soundtrack freuen... Und dann kommt so ein release? Das ist schon fast eine Frechheit.... Aber war ja schon immer so: Gladiator, Inception, Backdraft usw.... Warum nicht immer den Complete Score als Digital Download anbieten? Ich würde sogar 50€ für einen Complete Score ausgeben... Nun heißt es warten....

Hey, I've been trying to get the music from the Nokia trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. Is there a place I can buy the actual song? I found audio on YouTube that was cleaned up from the trailer... But a good bit-rate version of it will be great. If it hasn't been released yet, are there any plans on releasing it? Based on my experience while searching the internet, there are quite a lot of people who'd love it! Thanks!

I once again heard some of Mr. Zimmer's work and once again I just felt the need to hug that man I've never met and thank him for making my small slice of the world such a better place for a while.

Nothing makes much sense, but the beauty of music like his is such a pure and simple pleasure I fell it has to be point of Everything.

As a long-time fan, I just wanted to thank Hans and his whole team for the experience last Saturday at the Hammersmith Apollo in London. It was a real thrill for me to see the enthusiasm and joy with which your orchestra played, and to hear some of my favourite tracks live. And I think it paid off - not only have I queued up a number of additional soundtracks to buy from you, but my wife seems to have become almost as much a fan as I.

I'm really looking forward to the release of the event on DVD/Blu-Ray/CD, if that's the plan - I certainly hope it is! In the meantime, thanks again, and keep doing what you're doing.

Guten Tag! I'd like to use one of your pieces from the second Pirates of the Caribbean, "The Kraken." With your permission of course, I plan to use the song for a stop-motion/animation short film myself and others are producing. It would be an honor to use a masterpiece of yours in the film. Could you give me the contract info on how to use it, or where I could find the copyright infringement policies. I really appreciate it!! Thank you!! Ethan

Hello mr. Zimmer. I have a little question.
Your composition, named "Hello Beastie" from Pirates of the Carribean 2 soundtrack is just fascinating. I bought all Pirates of the Carribean Dead Man's Chest score to get this awesome piece of music.
So, the point is: can i use this composition in video, witch goes to the Valve's Saxxy contest? Is it legal according to the copyright laws? This should be a dramma short. No forbidden scenes will be in this video. This is the link to the site of this contest:(sourcefilmmaker.com/saxxyawards2014/guidelines/)As you can see, there is absolutely no any commercial profit from your misic for me or anybody. Whall contest and program, that i use to create the short (Source Filmmaker) are completely free. Shure there will be reference in titers that this exelent piece of music is completely your creation and i'm just using it to create the mood.
If the answer is negative and i can not use your masterpiece, then i shure will not. But the is mention in contest rules that i need creator permission to use the score.
Sorry for my bad english and thank you for your attention.

Lieber Hans, seit Jahren verfolge ich aus Deutschland Ihre Arbeit und wollte Ihnen einmal als Dirigent eines Blasorchesters aus dem Hunsrück für die wunderschönen Melodien und Inspirationen danken, die es uns als Orchester ermöglichen, unserem Publikum schöne Konzerte zu schenken. Wir haben bereits viele Stücke (in Bearbeitung) von Ihnen gespielt und freuen uns auf neue Filmusiken von Ihnen und Ihrem Team. Mir ist bewusst, dass diese Nachricht Sie wahrscheinlich gar nicht persönlich erreichen wird, aber was soll`s ... wollte ich einfach mal hier posten. Auch 2015 werden wir sicherlich bei unserem jährlichen Frühjahrskonzert ein Stück von Ihnen spielen; vielleicht ja mal mit einer persönlichen Video-Botschaft von Ihnen ;-)
Ich wünsche Ihnen und Ihrer Familie alles Gute für die Zukunft und weiterhin viele schöne Momente.
Viele Grüße aus Deutschland
Michael
PS: Da ich selbst ein wenig für mein Orchester komponiere, eine Frage: welche Software setzten Sie eigentlich dafür ein?


Mike2014-09-06 08:10:13
Ich bin zwar nicht Hans aber auf die Frage welche Software er einsetzt ist meines Wissens "Cubase" von Steinberg.
Viele Grüsse Mike


Michael2014-09-06 15:27:43
