...that response only made you look more suspicious, as it was so pre-programmed feeling.@AndrewP *Robocop voice* obey the law or get erased creepSo if I say I love the score and it’s amazing then I’m a bot !!!!!!!!! What a rediculois theoryHi, I'm new to this site and a big fan of Zimmer. Blade Runner is definitely one of his best works (and don't forget Wallfisch). Anyways, I'm definitely anticipating Denis Villeneuve's upcoming Dune film and I wonder if he'll go to Zimmer to do the project. That would be awesome if that happened.This place is not exactly a democracy, if something is not of my liking I get rid of it. Plain & simple.
^^<br><br>For the sake of fairness, I think the admins should delete both the guys spamming the thread with whining, as well as the Balfe-bots spamming the thread with positivity while simultaneously denouncing "haters." (This does not apply to most people in the thread, but you know who I mean.)I created a suite of what I believe are the best cues on the album, and attempted to make some interesting variations with the cues themselves in terms of transitions and such. Tracks included are Fallout, The Exchange, Escape Through Paris, Stairs and Rooftops, Free Fall, and Mission: Accomplished. Feel free to check it out, it helps make the whole score feel more melodic in my opinion!<br><br>https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCioYxbgNsqFhZ15onqcTlFA/vid eosBalfe haters will hate this !!!<br><br>But it’s amazing . <br><br>It’s emotional then EPIC!<br><br>It can only be purchased at the Kynren site in Bishop Auckland, UK, during the show season. Google Kynren and hope to see you there soon! :) Hope this helps. Kind RegardsAgree with this 100%
People are on here shitting on Giacchino and Powell saying Rouge One has a better score or people saying Solo has a better score and I’m over here like yep still listening to the Star Wars Original Trilogy And Prequel Trilogy scores over here. But I think they both gave Williams Justice and did good.@HunterTech - because Cruise and the studio *really* wanted him back after Rogue Nation's success, despite the producers' initial plan for the franchise being to have each entry done by a different director. Hence, McQuarrie's condition that he'll be back as long as he does a completely different film.<br><br>And context is important because once you realise the *film itself* is heavily influenced by Nolan with a big dash of Fury Road-esque building action momentum, then the decision to have Balfe on board and the score to sound all Zimmer/RCP as opposed to more symphonic a-la Kraemer/Giacchino makes sense.So.......why not get a new director then? I admire his efforts in trying to attempt something different for every sequel, but he's eventually gonna get tired if he keeps coming back. Plus, there's been evidence that surfaced to suggest that there was a very specific reason in Kraemer not returning, which don't necessarily contradict what McQ is saying here.<br><br>Despite all this, I'm very excited for Fallout as a whole. I've been able to enjoy films with disappointing scores before (*cough*BR2049*cough*).Mephariel, fair enough. I see your point as well.<br><br>mpolonest123, I see your point.<br><br>But looking back at the MI2 score now, compared to some recent MV/RC stuff......it's just heads and tails above them. Again, that's just my opinion. There is a clear theme here, there is an actual structure. Not just some noisy sound effects thrown in the blender.
@HunterTech - McQ said at every opportunity that a condition of his coming back would be making MI Fallout as if a different director was doing it. Which is why he got a new DoP, new composer, new costume designer etcBecause that opinion is clearly wrong when Dunkirk came out in 2017.I can't agree with Genius: Picasso. I like the score, but it doesn't have enough direction. Just a lot of soundscaping. It is like the score is just there. <br><br>Balfe has this same problem with a lot of his scores.<br><br>I am so tire of people claiming Balfe has potential. It is like a basketball fan constantly claiming that Player X is two years away from being two years away. Every year people say Balfe is going to do something great. I am still waiting for this. That said, I haven't listened to MI:6 yet.Christopher Nolan of music? You serious? You compare Balfe with Nolan, one of the most talented directors of this generation? Nolan always does his own shit. He doesn't tempt scenes from other movies and recolor them and call them his. <br><br>Has Balfe written a great score that is truly his own yet? Maybe I just haven't heard it. <br><br>The only thing Balfe and Nolan has in common is that they are both white and they are both British.So I've finally decided to give this a listen today, and it was a lot of fun! The general quirkiness, source cues that actually benefit the score, and one of the best themes that I've heard from Zimmer in Moriarty certainly make this one a keeper. A lot of people barp on the OST, but it certainly made me interested to hear the music in a better form. I'll probably have to listen to it again before forming a definitive opinion, but as is, it managed to actually live up to the hype.

Jim reply Replies: 17 || 2013-06-04 21:21:06
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.


Macejko2013-06-04 22:06:49
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.


Hybrid Soldier2013-06-04 22:41:20
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.






Mike2013-06-05 07:43:35
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.

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


Dawn2013-02-09 14:19:31
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.

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
