Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? ThanksIt is somewhat bizarre that you all are thinking directors actually want to work with Junkie. Surely, the only reason anyone hires him is that they want Zimmer who is not available. Yes, some may have heard Mad Max but it would be silly to think anyone actively wants a Junk score.Bob Badami (as Robert Badami), Melissa Muik, Mark Wherry (as Mark Andrew Wherry are music editors!<br><br>Booklet credits<br><br>Music Editor: Melissa Muik <br>Score Wrangler: Bob Badami<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark WherryI don't think Junkie XL picks the shittest films to work on. It's just that art film directors won't choose him to score their films. Even in RCP, a lot of his colleagues are more well respected than he is. I would argue Benjamin Wallfisch is already more well regarded. Mad Max is an exception because of its unique setting and story line.
Metro Expanded Score (1997) By Steve Porcaro & James Newton Howard<br><br>I found an interesting about unreleased tracks from the whole movie by one hour and 57 minutes, it's meant something missing in the movie. But I did edit some unreleased tracks from the movie, but not in OST It could be Expanded Score. I'm sure about that!<br><br>1. Main Title (1:57)<br>2. Sam's Death (1:31)<br>3.

Ronnie Kidnapped / Korda's Demands / The Shipyard (3:16)<br>17. Final Chase (3:11)"I do think he knows how to place emphasis on music as opposed to Joss Whedon or any of the other studio director who treats it like a byproduct."<br><br>I agree with you, except that Snyder and I have very different ideas about what makes good (film) music, and how to emphasize it. Ridley Scott is a somewhat similar case. Somehow he has gotten a ton of great music written for his movies over the years despite the fact that his musical instincts are really strange and misguided sometimes. At least Snyder doesn't butcher the scores he gets.<br><br>You're right that a director like Whedon doesn't seem to pay that much attention to how music can enhance his movie. But as someone who cares about film music 95% of the time as albums, not in film, I often find that a director who gets out of the way and just trusts the composer to do his/her thing is preferable to one who gets overly involved with the scoring process and has lots of ideas about how things should sound. That the subsequent scores end up buried or ineffective in their films is a shame, but the music at least tends to be good on its own terms.@mrzimmerfan<br>Oh no, I mean I love the score as a whole. I was just saying my personal highlights. Man of Steel emotionally resonated with me. But that’s cool that you like BVS, I personally just think Man of Steel is more engaging.@mpolonest: But that moments are simply moments, not the entire score, i prefer BvS, because there is a variety in it: Batman, Wonder Woman, Luthor, and is more complex than MoS (also i prefer the movie over MoS).<br><br>And yes, the theme for Superman is cool, but that dosen't make the entire score cool too.and some nice boob representation, too.
@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Point Break is a lousy movie, but the score and guitar main theme isn't all that bad. Those 10 minutes on the soundtrack don't do it enough justice at all.<br><br>But again - this is Junkie doing action scoring....Miles better than any of his slow stuff. For me, anyway.@Edmund <br>He’s definitely not my favorite director, but I do think he knows how to place emphasis on music as opposed to Joss Whedon or any of the other studio director who treats it like a byproduct. One of my biggest pet peeves is when directors/composers just use music as a sonic wallpaper, instead of letting it improve  and add to the scene. John Ottman is a great example. He can write great themes, but he tends to write underscore which adds nothing to the film. That’s why Zimmer, Williams, James Newton Howard, etc. are so good. They treat each moment with care."Zack Snyder, a director who actually understands music"<br><br>A matter of opinion, and not an opinion I share.@mrzimmerfan <br>I disagree with you there. I love Man of Steel, I think the themes and the overall bombastic nature of the score work perfectly. As for BVS, I’m not a huge fan honestly. There are some amazing highlights, but the tone of the score is so downbeat. It lacks the soaring elements of “Flight” or “What Are You Gonna Do...” and the action highlights of “Terraforming” or “Escape From Ship”. <br><br>To each their own though :-)For the themes mostly, this Batman and this Superman fit with the themes written by Zimmer. But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)<br><br>
I genuinely wish we could hear Justice League, I would have loved to see what he brought to that under Zack Snyder, a director who actually understands music.I still remember when Divergent was released, I was almost immediately dismissive of Junkie XL. Having only heard his remixes and his drum stuff for MoS/300 the first thing I expected was to hear an electronica album with percussion and sound design. So imagine my surprise when I heard several different themes, beautiful string adagios, vocals, and a pretty big variety of styles. And then Run All Night came out and blew me away. Ever since then I’ve been pretty supportive of his work, but I have to agree with everything you guys are saying.<br><br>The past two years have been pretty bad in terms of his ratio of good scores to bad. Black Mass and Brimstone, as I’ve mentioned, are solid scores that veer away from the usual JXL sound. But then we have Deadpool (abrasive), Distance Between Dreams (ok for a stand-alone album), Dark Tower (pretty fun in parts and just bland in others), and Tomb Raider (one of the most generic scores I’ve heard in recent memory). It’s frustrating to see a composer who obviously has talent and a diversity of skills write almost the same thing over and over. <br>And the weirdest thing is, his earlier scores are far more distinctive than his current ones. How did that happen?Nope he released All I see is you Soundtrack last year and it was a great soundtrack..<br><br>Are you sure you're a fan of him?<br><br>So far no project announced for this year but I think there will be at least one...What happened to Marc Streitenfeld? It's been a long time since there has been any involvement or a new score from him. Some years ago, I thought he's going to be the new upcoming star from the horizon of RCP. But then abruptly silence. Any reason or information?@Meta: Really Point Break was interesting?, it's only 10 minutes of music released, and i din't care about it, honestly, and the movie was really, really bad.<br><br>As for Tomb Raider, the music was serviciable in the movie, but i more comfortable with it than Point Break.

Hallo Herr Zimmer,
ich weiß, daß die Chancen null-komma-eins stehen sie persönlich an die Tastatur oder ans Telefon zu bekommen, aber ich probiere es doch einmal aus als Landsmann. Mein Name ist Hanjo Gäbler und ich bin seid ich Teenager bin ein großer Fan Ihrer Musik. Ich bin Berufsmusiker seid ich 19 Jahre alt bin und jetzt quasi mit 34 auch in der Filmmusik angekommen. Ich würde Sie gern einmal um Gehör bitten und ein bis zwei Fragen stellen. Hätten Sie unwarscheinlicher Weise einmal Zeit für mich? Nur 2-3 Minuten?
mit freundlichen Grüßen, Ihr Hanjo Gäbler

Hello sir. I'm orchestral uplifting trance composer and producer. Your every track gives me so inspiration,aspecially Dark Knight Triology OSTs. I wish that i would be your student and learn so much stuffs from you, whatever it is just dream :( .How can i send my tracks and productions to you ?

mittens2012-09-04 16:28:41
hello, I am not Hans Zimmer, but I think know the answer to your question: unfortunately people at RCP have the policy not to open music cds that they get from random people because of a fear of copyright issues. Even if you send them your cd they will have to return it to you unopened. And all that because a long time ago some amateur composer sent his work to some movie composer and the movie composer used his music as his own and later got sued for it by that amateur composer who proved that he stole his music. And because of that they have to return cds unopened.

Does anybody know anything about the scoring / soundtrack from the science documentary series called Through the Wormhole - the credits state Zimmer, Shea and Kofsky to be involved with the music. I'm desperatly looking for some of the music from the series - they remind me alot of Chevalier De Sangreal. They are used in season 2, episode 1 at 40:00 and season 3, episode 4 at 34:50(you can youtube them)

Thx in advance for any answer :)

Does anyone know if Zimmer will be scoring next summer's "The Lone Ranger". Gore Verbinski is directing it, who used Zimmer for all 3 Pirates and Rango. Seems like he would fit the role

Pawel Stroinski2012-08-10 02:10:26
No, the score is written by Jack White (of the White Stripes)

Mr. Charles2012-08-10 03:16:21

Bummer. But I cannot judge. I know who The White Stripes are. They're ok. Hopefully the score will be good

As someone who is not quite sure about the legalities of this particular situation, I understand that this might be a stupid question.
Anyway, I would like to use part of the soundtrack to Inception in a YouTube video, but I understand I need some sort of permission. Is it enough to credit Hans Zimmer as the creator of the song and provide an Itunes link, or will I need to do something a little more formal?
My name is in my YouTube account, should you need to message me and the video in question has not been made yet.

I purchased your "The Dark Knight Rises" score a day ago and was very angry to find out that there are all kinds of online exclusives. My CD was made in Canada and contains no download code or anything of the sort and is only 51 minutes. I understand your wanting to experiment with apps and stuff (I don't own a cell phone), but the fact that you were able to have other tracks that could easily and should easily have fit onto the CD, as they do on itunes and other sites, signals that you are exploiting your fans.

I always pay artists for their work; I buy DVDs and I buy the great music of Mark Snow and Bear McCreary. This was the first CD of yours I bought and it may be the last. I feel betrayed as a customer who never wanted to steal from an artist I respected, but you tempt me with these devious tactics.

In late 1980's I was in a choir that performed an oratorio I think was by Mr Zimmer. It was a world premier and under the direction of Dr. Robert Berglund at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis, MN. Do you know what the name of the oratorio?

I have read that Mr. Zimmer began to develop his craft through a mentoring relationship and that he believes in apprenticeships. How does a young composer gain his attention?

Hi there,

what exactly is an "almost official site"?

Antas, Webmaster2012-06-19 15:36:51
Well, let's say it's an official site of Hans Zimmer but an unofficial site of RCProd. So "almost official" for both... ;)

Nicolas, Webmaster2012-07-18 15:02:57
The exact answer is that Hans knows us, appreciate our work and don't search to make a really good official website because he's fine with this situation.(he told us exactly that way)So, we're not official, but Mr Zimmer keeps an eye on our work ;)

Are there any plans to offer digital (lossless) download as a purchase option for TDKR or other works? A lot of artists are offering 96/24 FLAC or Apple Lossless options, which would be great for this type of music. I know that a lot of HZ fans would prefer this format to CD or iTunes, as compressed versions don't do these compositions justice.

Hello everyone

Back in August while searching for news on Lorne Balfe score for Assassin's Creed Revelations I came across a Swedish video game site that had received a press release from Ubisoft about teaming up with the Malmo Symphony Orchestra to record music for some of there upcoming games (Including Assassin's Creed Revelations)

Here is the press release translated from Swedish (Translated with Bing)

"Ubisoft and Malmö Symphony Orchestra is initiating cooperation on recordings of original music for the upcoming games. First out is Assassin's Creed Revelations, the fourth sequel in the series of bestselling and critically acclaimed game Assassin's Creed. Data game was launched in 2007 and has sold nearly 30 million copies and is developed by Ubisoft Montreal with support and expertise from the Malmö-based game Studio Massive Entertainment. "

"Malmö Symphony Orchestra already has long experience of that record and make video game music. The Orchestra has since 2006 world record in game music audience at an outdoor concert. Music for Assassin's Creed Revelations recorded in Malmö Concert Hall 24-26 August. A group of hot Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer's leadership are working with music for the games, in this case, it is the Scot Lorne Balfe, who is the author. Mr Balfe has among other things been involved in music for Guy Ritchies film version of Sherlock Holmes who won an Academy Award for best original music, for Frost/Nixon and Pirates of the Caribbean. "

Source: h t t p :// e_spel/B501

Now whats interesting about the press release is the following

'' A group of hot Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer's leadership are working with music for the games, in this case, it is the Scot Lorne Balfe, who is the author ''

Now maybe it's a poor translation but to me that sounds like Remote Control composer's will be doing the scores for these games.

Now seeing that this site is the ''Almost Official '' site
of Remote Control Productions I was wondering if anybody here knows anything about this?, Or could someone who knows Swedish clear this up, Is it a bad translation or am I reading it right?

Thank you
