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.

Dear everyone!

How, and where i can pay royalty for Hans Zimmer's - What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World track?

Or, where can i get the permission from the owner?
It is important for my non-profit tutorial movie.

Thanks

Hans should record some voices with Loreen for Interstellar

I agree. Loreen has very clean tessitura at high notes, perfect for an epic score with acoustic or orchestral music

Hello guys! I discovered your site few days ago and I have to admit that is fabulous!! In the last year Hans Zimmer has became one of my favourite composer, his works are so inspirational, so emotional!!
I've recently watched Man of Steel (2013) and I have to say that the soundtrack is really amazing!!
I've listened to the full deluxe edition of the soundtrack (wooow!!) but I could not find a track that simply blow my mind. The problem is that the song only plays for about 10 seconds, so it's difficult to recognize it! I need your help!!
Here is a link with the scene that contains that song...if you know the title let me know!!

I love Hans Zimmer. No questions asked. But something has bothered me for the past year or so. this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PA376MhE2PI is more or less exactly like Time from inception. I mean a few things were changed but still the same piece. That cd was released way before Inception ever came out. What happened there, I have always wondered


Anonymous2014-06-18 00:33:58
According to numerous sites it looks like the CD was released in 2011 (a year after Inception), but in any case it sounds really similar to Time. .)


Carolina2014-07-06 10:20:57
I see... Well thank you. For some unknown reason I believed Inception came out in 2012, I did not even bother to look it up. It was just stuck in my brain that it was. I appreciate this. :)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to ask you who the holder of rights of Another Brick in Hadrian´s Wall is. I am asking because I have done a cover version of a short part of this piece and I would like to use it as a demo on my homepage or on my SoundCloud page. I am based in Germany, so I have to pay the royalties to the GEMA. But the GEMA is granting a license only, if one can show a permission of the holder of rights of the respective piece of music, that allows to reproduce the piece or a part of it. Could you provide me, please, with this information? I would be grateful for a reply on your part. Best Regards, Andreas Wimmer (PrimaLuceSounds/Final Chapter)


Oberyn2014-06-04 21:15:03
Doesn't the studio that made the film, so in this case Disney, own the rights to the music?

Could somebody post the CORRECT lyrics to "MY ENEMY" by Hans Zimmer?
Or if you have a link to a page?
The problem is, I've checked out many different pages, but on each site the lyrics

While others say "Something's slipping, mind is dripping."

Hi

Is possible to request an upcoming releases section, in the blue pane, betweem fan covers and about/feedback.
Instead of browsing through every composer, it would be nice to know at what date what score is release, it can be very simple as:

June
How To Train Your Dragon 2 - John powell
The Lion King (The Legacy Collection) - Hans zimmer

it can be only text, dosent have to be links, it would be nice to have all releases at one page


Lambegue2014-05-18 22:46:11
There is already such a thing, on the "news" page. It is the "latest releases" section. I agree that the name can be quite deceiving, as some of the indicated albums are in fact not released yet. :)

As a current music student I am pursuing a degree in music technology (the closet degree my university offers to composing). I am attending this school because it offered me a very large scholarship for music but does not offer a composing degree. My main concern is should I transfer to a school with this degree or just complete my music tech degree and compose? In other words, would a music technology degree hinder my chances of getting a job in composing?

i wouldn't feel right visiting this page and not expressing to you the impact your music has had on my life. To be more specific, the musical score from Gladiator and how profoundly powerful and true to the film it really was. 14 years later and I still consider it the best musical score of any movie I've ever seen (my opinion, of course). The success of that film is attributed to your musical genius. Thank you for pouring your heart and soul in to your work and wishes to you for your continued success.
