Sadly, he doesn't seem to say anything new besides the background information on the Zimmer and Harry Gregson scores he's worked on. Plus the Skyscraper information still doesn't excuse the generic committee product that score turned out to be.Does anyone know what songs Max Aruj and Steffen Thum have worked on?Though there are differences, I think HZ & NGS styles mix together rather well.<br><br>Tracks like "Fort Walton", "Goodspeed Tracks Jade" or "Jade" are exceptions for sure. Apart from these, most tracks blend very well, imo.<br>It's very different from Armageddon for exemple, when team Trevor and team Harry had very different styles (big anthems & guitars VS darker material and more subtle theme developments) and also different sound equipments (I can tell immediately who did what thanks to the sound banks they used). The Rock doesn't suffer from those extreme differences imo.<br><br>We fans here listened to those scores for over 20 years and we've learnt how to spot each composer (thanks to this website and all the infos on each track we got over the years). I'm not sure I could have noticed all those details back in 1996, or even 10 years ago.<br><br>Nonetheless, The Rock is one of the greatest action scores ever. While more coherent scores like Crimson Tide or The Fan grew on me over the years, The Rock keeps a very special place in my heart.yes i hope 2 cd!!!!Hi, <br>Ever paid tribute to Gorecki?<br>I think you should<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Mjt Sprengers
The only way I won't be able to the listen to it before the episode is if it will be released in Germany in the night to tuesday. But I don't know how I would find that.Does someone know something about the soundtrack already? Like how many songs there will be or maybe even the full track list? Or will it be a big surprise?I will, Backbiter, because I live in Germany and in my country the final episode will be released on monday. I will watch it with my friends and therefore we will watch it around 8pm in my time. If the soundtrack will be released in the night from sunday to monday, I will be able to listen to the soundtrack before I watch the final episode.Yasss<br><br>Please be 2 discsThis is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.<br><br>Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?
Very interesting interview. Thanks man!Judging by the YouTube views, not a lot of people have listened to this 1-hour chat with Steve. So I'm posting it here for you folks to enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR0TPYmidNYI have nothing against any of the composers who worked on The Rock, but to my ears, the Nick Glennie-Smith stuff sounds obviously different from the Hans Zimmer stuff, and they both sound very different from the Harry Gregson-Williams stuff. And the transitions are a tad jarring at times. I've never seen anyone else post this opinion before, though, so I may be the only one!<br>=====================<br><br><br>That's actually very interesting. Never thought of it that way. And you're right. For those who are well aware of the overall MV/RC sound, there is indeed a difference between the Zimmer style and the Glennie-Smith style. However, I think that the two styles blend pretty well in The Rock. The movie itself allows for that. So I would argue that, while watching the actual movie, the two styles work very well together and they complement each other. <br><br>But listening to the score alone, yes, I can definitely see where you're coming from. The differences are obvious. Having said that, I still consider it to be a masterpiece of action scoring. And not only action. The emotional bits are great too. JADE is an extremely beautiful and tender track :))<br><br>P.S. The Peacemaker is on my personal TOP 5 of the greatest action scores of all time. I can't believe the score is not as popular as The Rock. Same for Eraser, by the way. Watch the movie again on a good sound system and you'll be blown away by the awesome Silvestri score. I really wish those two scores were more popular with the public......The 90s had some of the greatest action movie scores ever<br>================================<br><br>Without a doubt. I grew up in the 90s and I was there for all of it. Truly one of the best decades for film music (and for cinema in general). I mean, it's the decade that changed action scores forever. Exactly because of scores like The Rock, Twister, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Granted, Harold Faltermeyer kinda started it all in the mid-80s with his work on Top Gun, Tango and Cash and Beverly Hills Cop 2, but it was Hans and his team who really got the ball rolling. By the way, I'm super happy that Hans and Faltermeyer are teaming up for Top Gun 2. At least according to IMDb....<br><br><br>==================<br>The opening theme is probably Zimmer's best in the genre<br>==================<br><br>Agreed. It's the ultimate Zimmer power anthem. I know the younger generation knows Hans mainly from his work on comicbook movies like Batman and Spider Man, but for me, 90's Zimmer will always be the best Zimmer. And my favorite Zimmer :))I'm so excited hear that.
No you won't, the score will be released after the final episode.Yesssssssssss yessss yesCan't wait for this soundtrack.<br>Just a few days left.Oh. My. Gods. (The old ones and the new.) That's so good news. And I can't wait for sunday.<br><br>The best is, that I can here the soundtrack before I watch the final episode. And I like to hear to a score without knowing wich music belongs to what kind of scene.Yesss. Can't wait!

Dear Mr Hans Zimmer. Hello. I am Minseo Jang, a student of University of Suwon in Republic of Korea. I have a urgent request. Recently, the headmaster of my college is suspected of several corruptions. So I decided to make documentary about it and working on it. I don't want to make any money from this and All I need is to make everyone noticed in school. I found your music from 'Dark knight Rise' is quite fitted with my small film. So I wish you to allow me to use several ones. I hope to receive good news. With my respects, MS J.

Dear hans zimmer,
I was watching a movie 'the burning plain' and i was facionated by one wonderful soundtrack done by you and omar rodriguez ropez, 'are you coming?'. This song is the best soundtrack ever in my life, so i really wanted to download and keep the mp3 file in my music folder and i did it. But the point is, all music files i have searched and downloaded through out the internet were recorded with the movie sound effects such as car door's closing sound and airplane engine sound effect. It bothers me concentrating to the original song it self.( .. would you mind telling me the way how to get an original sound of 'are you coming' ? I will appreciate very much...

Hallo Herr Zimmer,

wann darf meine Stimme mit ihren Noten verschmelzen ?

Ich singe seit Kindesbeinen: dank meiner Mama und Olivier Messiens, der mich in Avignon in seinen Kinderchor geholt hatte. Seither habe ich auf der klassischen Ebene agewirkt, allerdings immer nur nebenberuflich.

Meine Seele ruft nach ihrer Musik. Wann darf ich mit ihnen verschmelzen. Gehen sie gerne auf meine Facebook Seite oder Soundcloud, dort sind einige Soundproben in modernem Musikstil hinterlegt.

So thanks for your music.

Much greetings from me out of Bavaria.

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.

No, the music in Beyond: Two Souls was composed by Lorne Balfe.

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

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.
Please,

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...

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
