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.

Hello,

Who do I contact if I am interested in working for the Hans Zimmer Remote Control Production team? I am a soon to be Audio Production Graduate and I will be moving to LA. One of my professors said I would do well here and try to find a way in.

Thanks for your time,

Hello, is there somebody who can help me? Where can I find an answer to my question? Is there an e-mail contact-adress of remote control productions where I can send to my question?

It`s the following problem:

Dear Mr. Zimmer,

My name is Karolina Krügler. I have been studying art education on the Technical University of Dresden in Germany. Finally I will be an art-teacher in school. For my master degree I have to create an artwork of my choice. I decided to shoot a short film (about 5 minutes) about the city of Dresden. Therefore, I would like to use Hans Zimmer’s song “Time” of the film “Inception”. I bought the music-cd of the film. I think I need the legal agreement of Hans Zimmer for using his composition. In Germany it is called the “Herstellungsrecht/ Synchronisationsrecht”. My artwork (film+music) will be shown for 5 days in a gallery (Festspielhaus Hellerau) together with other artworks of eleven classmates. My artwork won’t be shown for commercial purpose (non-commercial)! It is an exhibition with free entrance for the visitors, and only with the intention to show my Master thesis (the artwork) mainly to the members of the university. After the exhibition the artwork will be used only private.
I loaded my artwork up on Youtube, but on a locked up site, so nobody can see the Youtube-video without having the password (I had to minimize the quality of the film for uploading).

I would be very glad, if Hans Zimmer could possibly watch my video work and it would be wonderful, if he would permit me using his song for my artwork!



Hopeful and with best regards,

Karolina Krügler

I think that asking Hans Zimmer doesn't make any difference.
HZ is not the owner of the rights of his music, but the studio does (Warner Bros. in this case).
I think you need to contact the german company that is in charge of music rights licensing : www.gema.de

As your exhibition has free entrance that's possible you won't have to pay anything, but contact Gema and make sure of this first.

Dear Hans Zimmer, dear Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to tell you that in the upcoming Symphonic Speed Metal release of Final Chapter Hans Zimmer will be honorably mentioned in the Thanks and Credit list. Moreover, I would be grateful if you, Hans, could comment on the composition for the Final Chapter promotion video on facebook.com/finalchapterheavymetal, please, because I would like to hear what a professional composer would say. At the moment my favorite compositions from you. Hans, are Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator, King Arthur and The Da Vinci Code to mention some of them. I would like to thank you for having replied to my question on facebook not so long ago concerning the usage of samples.
Kind regards, Andreas Wimmer

I noticed a lot of composers don't have their own webpages. I am a MFA student in composing. As such, big companies such as DreamWorks and Universal don't necessarily offer internships in this field. Do composers ever offer internships or apprenticeships?

Hello.

Do any of you have direct contact with Mr. Zimmer?

I need to know if there's a possibility that if I were to offer my left arm as a means of trade - whereupon receiving the arm, in pristine condition, of course, Mr. Zimmer would have the arm surgically grafted to his chest (or a more conveniently located area; one that would aid him in his compositions) - in hopes that I might be able to visit his amazing-looking (I'm sure it's amazing, but I've only ever seen it in photographs and videos) studio?

I don't eat much. I don't take up much space. Furthermore, and probably best of all, I would be generously quiet. The amount of medications that I would be on after such a traumatic, elective-surgery would see to that. Lastly, in such a heavily sedated state, I may agree to a full cavity search to reassure everyone involved that I do not have any recording devices - this should clear me of any intent with malicious motive.

Please let me know.

PS: If Mr. Zimmer is not interested in my arm I may be willing to offer my foot, but the terms may need to be renegotiated.

Thank you for your time.

I am writer and producer and work as a pastor in the reformed church of Basel, Switzerland. We will produce a "Night of Faith" here in Basel in 2013. Nina Hagen is there and many others, too. I am responsible for a concert called "Prayers" with orchestra, solists and choir. We will sing prayers from musicals, operas etc. I am looking for the complete orchestra notes including choir and solos of "There can be miracles" from Prince of Egypt. But I can't find it. Where can we buy it? Anyone any idea?

Hello team, I have a dilemma and the only was I saw fit to resolve it was to contact as close to Zimmer as possible..

I'm a member of the Henry Brass Band in Stockbridge, GA, USA and we're looking for contemporary music to perform on a professional level. I thought about the Crysis 2 original soundtrack and the heavy brass involved in the songs.

Where could I possibly get a copy of the score for any of the songs, purchasing or without compensation?

Please keep in mind I'm not trying to solicit or trade, I only wish to either retrieve knowledge about how this works, and/or any of the scores.

Thanks,
Ryan
