Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer, <br>Hallo Hans,<br>  <br>ich habe einige ihrer Konzerte gesehen, Prag jedoch, war wirklich, ich kann es nicht in Worte fassen, unglaublich. Top Musiker und eine super performance!<br>Ihre Musik ist eine Inspiration.<br>Hoffentlich hören wir noch viele Stücke von Ihnen...<br><br>Hochachtungsvoll und liebe Grüße<br>StefanYeah, 30-ish seconds into Do You Bleed?"Reminiscent Therapy" is amazing in the way it incorporates a lot of Williams' classic stuff making it feel very natural and organic, like it's part Powell's themes, like he does with "The Adentures of Han".<br><br>This is a really great scoreHe is the chosen one, the one who will bring balance to the film music world...Thats just 'do you bleed?' with a small insert?
Haha, It's as the prophecy foretold.John Powell, the great uniter of film music fans@MrZimmerFan<br><br>I actually like Rogue One, and I do understand why it leans so heavily on the original themes. Here the themes are incorporated more as fan service, but Powell is able to do wonders with interpolating them with his material. <br><br>And something I forgot to mention, this score reminds me so much of Pan in the action sequences. The percussion and brass writing is great lolim surprised how Powell uses his ANTZ percussion in this!<br><br>The track Train Heist, Into The Maw is good example of it.<br><br>This is the only score that will please the gang at JW and HZ alike.When JWFan and HZ.com are discussing the same score....
'but not as heavily as Rogue One'<br><br>Because Rogue One have conections with certain aspects or characters from the OT?<br><br>An here you have a track with three themes (or cues) with no conections with the OT, Rogue One have more sense... but the score is fricking awesome :)So first impressions:<br><br>JP knocked this one out of the park! The whole score has this excellent swashbuckling vibe, which is surprisingly aggressive during the action sequences (entirely due to his trademark percussion).<br><br>The writing style is really interesting, it’s basically John Powell doing his usual style but with some Williams flourishes, especially during the softer cues. The Star Wars themes do return, but not as heavily as Rogue One. And of course the JW cue is great, although surprisingly structured more as an action cue as opposed to a concert suite.<br><br>And for some reason the Han theme sounds vaguely similar to Poe’s theme from Force Awakens.Let’s just say “Reminiscience Therapy”.... hold onto your seats! ;-)This score is awesome!! Powell did a great job at making a score that's differet than all the other SW scores, but still you know it's a SW score. He reprised Williams' theme brilliantly and I can't stop to listen to it!!!what about the music when batman makes it back to the cave and lex opens the case of kryptonite. cant find it in these
Yeah I can't agree that Inception or Interstellar are superior pieces of scoring. Certainly not in structure, thematic development, etc. <br><br>What defined those scores is the vision behind them more so than the execution. In so many ways, that is opposite of The World's End. Interstellar is a brilliant score that managed to provide each scene with a simplistic tone, but one that captured the atmosphere behind the scenes perfectly, such as the unique use of the organ. Same with Inception with the guitars. <br><br>With a World's End, the vision is nothing special. It is a rock and roll twist to classic music. But the execution brings enormous power and gravitas to the movie.<br><br>I would sum it up by saying that in Interstellar and Inception, the creation of the music drives the movie's ideas while in At World's End, the movie drives the creation of the music.Nazg&#251;l for Azog I will never forgive. It's not a Servant of Sauron theme, it's a Ringwraith theme, and Azog's not a Ringwraith, he's a goddam Orc, and that theme doesn't belong there, full stop. It was just put there because it sounds "epic" and would "pump up the action scene". Gondor Restored at the end is just as stupid. And the Dreaming of Bag End theme for Bilbo is indeed lovely, and would have been lovelier still if it actually appeared in the movie. Instead it just gets replaced by copy/pasted Hobbit music from LOTR instead because Peter Jackson desperately wants his audience to remember how good those movies were in lieu of the Hobbit ones being any good on their own. Needless to say it goes missing entirely from the second and third score...along with the Misty Mountains melody (the strongest theme of the first one). I still really like those scores overall but they got absolutely butchered in terms of their thematic usage in the films. Then again those movies were an absolute clusterfuck so I shouldn't be surprised.<br><br>WRT Harry Potter, the 3 note theme does work okay for Voldemort, except that there's already a longer, separate Voldemort theme in Philosopher's, one that I like even more, and which only gets used once in Chamber (when Riddle rearranges the letters). I can understand liking Chamber better than Philosopher when you compare the albums, but in terms of the complete scores there's no contest at all, Philosopher wins by a country mile because of Chamber's rehash issues (and there are some good cues missing from the album, such as the Troll and Forbidden Forest scenes).@Edmund<br>The thing with the Nolan scores (at least Interstellar/Inception) is that they are repetitive, in as much as being built heavily around the suites that I’m guessing they use to edit and temp the film. <br>And while the themes are simple I do think they are structured in a unique enough way which builds emotional resonance through the gradual increase in chords/volume/speed/etc. Even Dunkirk is a relatively simple score theme wise, but is so technically complex.<br><br>And personally I’ve never been in love with Inception. I admire it on a technical level, but outside of “Time” I find it to be a fairly cold score. Obviously what it was meant to do so not a complaint, more of a personal preference thing.You know, I actually like Chamber of Secrets much more than Philosopher's Stone. It has the best moments from that score with improved themes. (I actually like the 3 note motif for Voldemort better than it being used for the stone, it already sounded like the Sith theme from Star Wars so might as well go all the way with it.) It felt more tight, better paced, and had an overall more energetic feel to it.<br><br>The Hobbit, I'm not entirely sure where you're getting heartbreaking from. If you mean the state of its release I absolutely agree, if you're talking about its reprisals the only one I had any issue with was the Return of the King/Gondor Restored theme which had nothing to do with Thorin and Bilbo's relationship. <br><br>The Nazghul theme being used for Azog I thought was fine as he was a servant of Sauron in the movies, History of the Ring and Gollum's themes were used effectively, and the new thematic material for the first film, I thought was wonderful. The themes A Baggins of Bag-End and The Lonely Mountain song being used as a Fellowship type of theme are the greatest highlights for me.See, I don't find Inception or Interstellar (or Thin Red Line) all that "complex". Especially not compared to At World's End (how many themes are in that score, like 15? 20? Pretty much all of which show up in rapid succession during the Maelstrom battle?). The Nolan scores are more about building up around very simple conceptual ideas.<br><br>Unless you're talking about emotional complexity, which is a very different thing and not really possible to objectively judge...

Hello Hans Zimmer,
im fascinated by your music. It´s wonderful. Im playing videogames (Beyond Two Souls) and without your music it isn´t so well...
So thanks for your music.

Much greetings from me out of Bavaria.

PS: Vieleicht könnten Sie mir einen Soundtrack für unsere YT Webseite machen ;)


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-16 20:06:53
Why do I keep seeing/hearing claims that Zimmer worked on Beyond: Two Souls? He didn't, did he? Beyond "music producer" whatever that means?


Simon Böldl2013-10-17 21:32:47
Yes, he worked on the videogame Beyond: Two Souls. All of the music is by him.


Mike2013-10-17 21:43:26
No, the music in Beyond: Two Souls was composed by Lorne Balfe.

You have four options, Simon:
1) Do your research.
2) Stop living in an illusion.
3) Stop trolling.


MacArthur2013-10-18 07:22:48
It is fair to say that with all the media out there saying Zimmer did it he has reason to believe that is is.

But Simon it is done by Lorne Balfe


Simon Böldl2013-10-25 15:34:43
Here is a quote from www.cinemablend.com:
"Lorne Balfe and Hans Zimmer worked together on the soundtrack to the new game, written and directed by David Cage, Beyond: Two Souls ."

They worked together.

Sehr geehter Herr Zimmer. Ich bedanke mich für ihre Musik die
Mich sehr geprägt hat. Ich habe mir sogar ihre soundtracks angehört
Ohne die filme gesehen zu haben :-). Es ist erstaunlich dass sie so verschiedene soundtracks komponiert haben und trotzdem jedesmal ihre alt bekannte Note mit rein bringen. Vorallem möchte ich mich dafür bedanken dass sie Komponisten wie Klaus Badelt oder Ramin djawadi gefördert haben.
Es erfüllt mich mit Stolz dass ein deutscher der beliebteste Komponist der welt ist, und dies gilt doppelt für Ramin djawadi, da wir beide die selben wurzeln haben. Hören sie bitte nie auf mit der Musik und wenn es möglich ist, würde ich mich sehr über eine welt Tournee freuen um sie evtl in Hamburg live zu erleben.
Hochachtungsvoll Arjang

Hi Hans Zimmer,
I am Junaid Khawaja from Pakistan a big fan of your movie, game and theatre soundtracks. I am not a musician, music composer, lyricist, singer or anything else like that. I am just a song lover and writing this to you because I just love your music. I am crazy to have all of that. I maintain a list of your works at SoundCloud.com nothing more than that.
I don’t offer to download music freely. I just share the sounds to my SoundClouds’ profile from other public profiles. I can’t afford to buy your soundtracks. I am just writing to you because I want to listen all the work of you and will never share it to someone or upload to the profiles it’s my promise. Can I have all the soundtracks produced by you?
Love from Pakistan. I would love to hear from you as soon as possible.

Mike2013-09-19 23:37:17
Not sure, but Zimmer posted on Facebook that one website listed the score as one of the reasons to see the film. It'd be kinda mean of him to tease us like that. But then, maybe that's the idea: he wants us to go watch the film, not just go buy an album.

Doug reply Replies: 2 || 2013-09-08 07:23:25
Mr Zimmer, the version of Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire instumental you created for Mission Impossible 2, with acoustic guitar and orchestra was fantasic. I wish you would compose a complete song out of this. I think it would be very popular.

One criticism though...you give no credit to Cash or the song in the film credits, while at the same time you've gone after web posters, e.g. youtube, to keep your music from being shared. A bit hipocritical to me. It was only by reading comments under one of these posts that identified the song's origin.


MacArthur2013-09-08 07:30:01
I didn't hear that in the score so i don't know what you are talking about. and also maybe that is not what he was trying to do. like me I compose some stuff or progressions sound so good you just have to use them, and then you listen to a score and then you hear the very same progression and think hey that sounds like mine it might be something where he doesn't even realize that he's doing it. It just sounded good so he went with it.


Doug2013-09-08 09:27:29
MacArthur, it actually plays twice in the movie and is very short the longest piece of it is played at the end of the movie when Ethan meets Nahya in the park. I plays right before the Mission Impossible theme song at the end.

You may be right about Zimmer just composing it without realizing the connection. His version varies enough in tempo and instrumental content that I didn't realize it was the Ring of Fire...I just know it sounded familiar. I think Zimmer could make this short piece into a much longer (e.g. 5 min) full length song without too much trouble. It's a really beautiful song the way he has done it.

Hello. Hans Zimmer created much (but not all) of the music for the 1986 Nicholas Roeg film "Castaway." So I'm wondering if Mr Zimmer composed the beautiful and delicate flute segment that can be heard from 1:24:35 to 1:25:44 during the movie #####

If the answer is yes, what is the name of the song? (And is it available for purchase anywhere?) Many thanks!

Hey there guys, especially HZ.com team. This will be pretty unusual request, and also a really naive one, I imagine. See, I am working on a lecture for a biggest fantasy-sci-fi-horror-popculture convention in Czech and Slovak republic, called Istrocon. This lecture is about Hans Zimmer and his work.
So, here's the thing: my big dream about ending of this lecture is a video of Hans himself. Not just any video, though. It would be a video, where Hans would say something directly to the visitors of the convention. Something like "Hello visitors of Istrocon, my name is Hans Zimmer and I hope you enjoyed this lecture about my work." That's all.
Now, I understand that this idea is terribly, terribly naive. I understand that Hans is a terribly busy man and he doesn't have time to play around. But something like this would make a killing ending to my lecture.
I know that Hybrid and the other membersof the HZ.com team probably won't pay much attention to this post, but I simply had to try. If you could by some miracle contact Hans, you would have my eternal gratitude.

Hi... just hoping you can tell Mr. Zimmer that his Hans have the midas touch.... If possible please let me know what you think of these two amateur compositions... they were made using the sounds available in Pro Tools 10.... pretty authentic if you ask me, but definitely not the real thing... If you have a second please criticize... keep in mind I can't read music and have never been trained... Lastly, I know this is a long shot... Does anyone know how to apply to be an apprentice of Zimmer. To be honest I'd be the guy who gets scones and tea, if it meant I could get even the tiniest bit of tutorage... Again, please remind Mr. Zimmer his talent and eagerness to explore the branches of music and sound has definitely caught my attention and changed my compositions for the better! Fingers crossed, Tschüss...

I would appreciate the criticism... if there is some misunderstanding on my end, please help clear it up... not trying to impose.


NM2013-06-17 08:13:46
I'll give an honest critique to a fellow musician. I listened, they're not bad, the second one is kind of nice, the first a bit boring. They sound earnest rather than being the terrible Zimmer clones most people on youtube shit out ("I have some drums and a french horn sample, I'm a composer!")

You mention you can't read music/don't have much musical knowledge and to be honest, it is pretty obvious from the structure of your compositions. I don't see why that should be "born in mind", as though a concession should be granted. You don't necessarily *need* theory, no, but the progressions, orchestration and arrangement are very simple and predictable and it doesn't really feel like the music develops. You have some decent basic ideas in there, but you don't explore them or add any depth to them. Anyone half-decent at writing music could've written both those pieces in about an hour without much effort.

Keep going with it though. Hope that's useful.


David Young2013-06-17 21:22:46
Thank you so much for the well thought out response. I am humbled and agree with you fully.

Have previewed MoS OST and it's garbage. Thanks Hans for screwing it up! Every piece sounds the same as the last, and the same as the last bunch of Zimmer crap scores. Ostinato strings repeated over and over and over and over again, long brass swells with overblown horn parts, pounding and heavily overused percussion - and nothing, and I mean NOTHING, interesting thematically. They really should have got somebody with some musicality like Giacchino to do this one. You, sir, are a hack.


Ds2013-06-04 21:31:07
Clearly you don't like Zimmer's style. Why are you here then?


Jim...again.2013-06-04 21:38:27
...and what the HELL is with the cue "This is Madness"??? Oh, it's madness, alright. The preview is a full minute of the same one-bar snare drum rhythm with a bass drum on the downbeat every second bar. Seriously? This is the kind of crap you come up with? Because if all there is to writing a film cue these days is a one-bar snare drum rhythm, well geez man, where do I sign up? I could pump out a couple hundred cues a day. Y'know, I really used to look forward to new movies as much for the score as the movie itself if not more so in many cases. You have ruined that for me for many recent films. Now I find myself knowing that as soon as I see "Music by Hans Zimmer" there will be nothing to enjoy as far as the score is concerned.


Jim2013-06-04 21:40:27
Where else would I vent my frustration? These comment pages are not solely for the purpose of stroking egos.


Macejko2013-06-04 21:45:33
Go to hell with Giacchino, that man has not composed anything interesting in his life.


Ds2013-06-04 21:50:33
Some people adore Giacchino because he's kind of the reincarnation of John Williams' old fashioned style. But i tend to agree with you Macejko.

Jim: your opinion is a little harsh, considering you've only heard 60 to 90 seconds of each track.


Jim2013-06-04 21:51:50
Lol, right Macejko...I mean, if you don't enjoy musical and well-developed thematic material, varied and balanced instrumentation, appropriate use of percussion (as opposed to the crutch Zimmer uses it as) and actual musicality, and instead can only deal with the same boring repeated ostinato garbage over and over again, I can see how you might prefer Zimmer over Giacchino.


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-04 21:59:19
lol, Macejko...Giacchino is easily one of the most talented composers of the last decade.


Jim2013-06-04 22:01:17
I've heard enough to know it's exactly the same kind of monotonous, trite, boring crap as he came up with for TDK. Again...ostinato strings, brass swells, pounding and overused percussion, no themes whatsoever and way too repetitive. Zimmer's music is background noise - more akin to sound effects than music. It's an aside. An afterthought. A backdrop. A shadow. A score should be so much more than this IMHO. His do nothing for me. They don't speak to me at all. Don't communicate anything. It's canned and boring, soulless and dry. If MoS is a great movie, it will be in spite of the soundtrack.

Well, my guess is that he's not gonna change this style anytime soon, so you can leave this place in peace and listen to whatever "quality" music you listen to.


Jim2013-06-04 22:12:39
Sure...except I have to put up with his crap, don't I? Believe me, I wanted to love the MoS soundtrack. I heard Zimmer was doing it and I prayed it wasn't going to be more of the same junk of his like TDK. Boy, am I let down. Come on people...we need to demand better than this.

Get a life, dude... :)


Jim2013-06-04 22:57:54
Never understood that. Somebody discusses something, and suddenly that means they have no life. Hmmmm, yep, ok, makes sense to me.


Ds2013-06-04 23:52:16
Jim, i guess it's only a matter of taste. I love the samples and i usually love Zimmer's scores. I think they are powerful, majestic and highly emotional. His music really speaks to me.


Guitwo2013-06-05 01:19:29
Talking about TDK's soundtrack do you wanna refer to the Joker theme?

background noise? well that is, sometimes, quite enough to make a huge soundtrack. I don't consider Reznor's Social Network soundtrack as a great, outstanding. To me it was just background noise yet it seems that a lot of people actually loved it.

and to be honest, to say he hasn't write anything good or great for a movie for a long time you really haven't listen to one of his last complete recording sessions.


Frank2013-06-05 01:33:07
Guitwo, yes the Joker theme is disturbing and noisy, but that is exactly how a mad man(chaotic and anarchic) such as Joker should sound like. And speak of TR's Social Network, I admit it's not enjoyable but again it's the only type of music to fit the movie and I believe that's the reason they get an Oscar.


Guitwo2013-06-05 06:07:39
i didn't mean nothing but what you've just said pale. the point is that it's a matter of what music fits best the movie then it's a matter of taste for music.

Say what you want in defense of Zimmer, but I do like Michael Giacchino--not because he sounds like Williams, but simply because he's a good composer.

hi, sorry if I disturb you... one (two) more composers who just want to share our work with a great team of music makers, and maybe get a feedback from one of you? if you are curious you can visit our website:
find "reberboisard" on google (can't let you a link)
