Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...If there'd only been the first movie prior, I think I'd get it a bit more. But the 2nd film did have a proper score release, so the only reason at this point is that it just isn't on Nick's mind after all the delays.Whoa, why not? Every obscure random shit gets released these days but a Hans Zimmer score to a fairly big mainstream movie doesn't?
I doubt there'll be a score release.The Spongebob movie is being released next Friday here in Canada, could we see a release of the album soon? Assuming of course that there will be an album at all /:I gotta say that short film was spectacular even with I Phone 11, the score by Lorne Balfe fitted very well with the scenes introduced.I'd say that this anthem was pretty great for Zimmer to score a soccer team that has been alive for 25 years.Cheers guys, much appreciated!<br>In my mind I had some video interview though, as I always like watching those as well. I do wonder if there was an extra section on the home release of the movie where ideally there might be.
Hans Zimmer is one of the biggest film composers working in the industry today.  He won an Academy Award for his work on The Lion King, and has been nominated for six other films including Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, and As Good As It Gets. With The Last Samurai he celebrates his 100th film score, and SoundtrackNet had an opportunity to talk with Hans a few weeks ago during a rare break in his busy schedule working on Something's Gotta Give.<br><br>You've scored many projects during your career, and The Last Samurai is being touted as your 100th film score…<br><br>Well, I'm terrible with math, so I'm not doing the counting. It could be more, it could be less – but apparently it's the 100th.<br><br>So how did you get involved with the project?<br><br>If you're lucky enough to get nominated for an Oscar, you get invited to the Oscar nominee's luncheon where they hand out these little nomination certificates. There are usually 150 people standing there, and people are invited up in alphabetical order, starting with the As. By the time they get to the Cs, everybody's already back at their table chatting and eating, and while the first people called get thunderous applause, you can imagine what it's like when your name starts with Z!<br><br>So Ed Zwick and I were standing there, waiting at one of these luncheons about four years ago, and we started talking to each other. I asked him what he was working on and he told me about this movie called The Last Samurai, which I thought sounded interesting and I asked him to send me a script. After the script arrived, I didn't hear from him for a long time and I thought he'd forgotten about me, not thinking about how difficult it is to set up a samurai movie these days. The other thing I liked about the project was that Tom Cruise was involved, so it was like returning home, since I've scored a bunch of his movies – I knew we were going to have a good time.<br><br>Did it end up that way?<br><br>Ed and his editor Steve Rosenblum are such gentlemen, so together and professional, and they basically did one cut of the film, screened it, and everyone loved their work. So after this, they had plenty of time to come and hang with me, and while I usually love the re-cutting process because it's a diversionary tactic to keep the director and editor out of my life, these guys were great to have around. <br><br>Of course, my sense of paranoia made me think that something was going wrong all the time, waiting for the other shoe to drop, as it were, but it never happened. Ed phoned this morning and I thought, "Oh my god – rewrite!" It's just how my brain works. But I think he and I feel a bit odd now: we've been seeing each other every day for months, and suddenly we're done. I completely understand why people have a problem finishing a movie, because there's something really nice about the process – completion is far more boring.<br><br>For Samurai, you used Japanese percussions and ethnic woodwinds, without getting too 'Japanese'.<br><br>My problem is that I feel Japanese music is really inaccessible to Western ears, and I was really struggling with this film initially, trying to figure out what I was doing. This idea popped into my head for using Western-style themes, but applying a Japanese aesthetic to them, which sounds great of course, until I had to ask myself what I meant! Actually, I think it's just my way of not overloading certain things with too many colors, or being geometrically precise about my cues and not making them too flowery.<br><br>The Tom Cruise character is one of those nasty drunks at the beginning, who obviously has some serious problems he's trying to deal with, or not deal with. He's obnoxious and restless, suffering sleepless nights and is very un-Tom. For me, this character's journey was about his need to earn tranquility and peace, so within the score there's this very romantic, overblown and passionate theme. It's like a juvenile way of dealing with life and death – the pain and liebestod.<br><br>However, to contrast with these very relentless themes, there are a number of stark, formal and sober pieces, because I wanted to take Tom's character on a journey. He comes from America and ends up in this foreign place where he doesn't speak the language or understand the culture. But at the end of the movie, I want the audience to think that there isn't a more beautiful place for him to be, that he is at home in Japan and finally at peace.<br><br>There are many useless acts of bravery we do out of misguided romanticism, and this movie is full of courageous and dignified acts of bravery. So I wanted to play off these acts, since both the American and Japanese cultures have a concept of heroism, and I just wanted to see if I could play with the nature of the two different concepts.<br><br>So you didn't want to do the stereotypical Japanese thing...<br><br>Absolutely not! Take Akira Kurosawa's Ran, for example, which has this brilliant score where Takemitsu writes Western music, but with an Eastern accent. Somebody asked me a few days ago why As Good As It Gets was European – why did I write a European score for a quintessentially American story? For me, it's because Jack Nicholson was crazy in the movie, and I felt one of the great things about America is how they always think we Europeans are crazy. So by writing a European-styled score, it's my way of saying that Jack is crazy, but it's alright!<br><br>How do you feel about people who criticize your work for not fitting into the time period, like Gladiator?<br><br>The reason I take these jobs is because I'm interested in foreign cultures, and every time I get to work on a movie I'm thrown into the adventure of whatever that culture is, the time, and wherever the story's taking place. So one of the things I'm very careful about is not to be historically correct to the culture, but, on the other hand, not to insult the underlying aesthetics of that culture either. I remember watching Chariots of Fire and thinking how brilliantly the music worked, never missing that it wasn't period instruments! I grew up listening to Bach played by a symphony orchestra – it's the wrong sized orchestra with the wrong instruments, but I don't think that's the point.<br><br>With Gladiator, Pietro Scalia brought in a CD saying "this is Ancient Roman music," and I said, "Says who? You went to the Ancient Roman music store and bought an Ancient Roman music CD? Bullshit!" We're not anthropologists. Look at he costumes Ridley Scott had: they were more Napoleonic than Roman, which was perhaps fitting since Napoleon had stolen all of his good ideas from the Romans regarding how to make his generals look cool – and so did Hitler! So I got criticized for making the "Entry into Rome" cue too Leni Riefenstahl – but that was the joke! I am allowed to have a sense of humor in my music!<br><br>Earlier this summer your credit on Pirates of the Caribbean was "Score Overproduced by". What was the deal with that?<br><br>Well, I thought honesty was a virtue! But seriously, Jerry Bruckheimer quite rightly asked me not to give him "that old-fashioned Pirate music," and Gore Verbinski, who I adore and did The Ring with, said, "Well, it is a pirate movie, so we have to disguise it." In the end, I spent a day and a half writing tunes, Klaus Badelt wrote a lot of stuff, and we rolled up our sleeves, got drunk, behaved in a debauched way, and produced a score!<br><br>There was a lot of criticism regarding that score, but in the end it had to serve the film - which it did. You seem to get a lot of criticism on any project you do.<br><br>I had the misfortune of going onto the Film Score Monthly web site recently to look something up and vanity made me type in my own name. I suddenly realized that you can't ever get it right. Who do people want me to be? The guy that writes Matchstick Men? Or the guy that writes The Rock? Or the guy that writes Driving Miss Daisy? My need is ultimately to write for myself. I mock myself and I'm ironic about the way I speak about it because if I take it too seriously, it would be a pompous and boring thing to do. But at the same time I take each note I write very seriously – none of them are random.<br><br>The Internet Movie Database always lists you as being attached to multiple projects, so I was curious, what's Sharktail?<br><br>I complained to Jeffrey Katzenberg that I couldn't cross any more Red Seas, or deal with any more horses that can't speak – I wanted to do one of the fun animated movies instead. There's also a hip-hop element in Sharktail, and I haven't been there yet, so it's new territory! King Arthur is still in production, and I literally just got the first bits of footage just before you came here.<br><br>Are you working on all of these projects simultaneously?<br><br>I'm thinking about them! I'm also working with Jim Brooks on his new comedy, Spanglish.<br><br>And speaking of comedies, you recently did Matchstick Men for Ridley, which had a very Nino Rota vibe to it....<br><br>And I gave him credit! I thought, what if Nino had written the theme and I was just doing the variations? But I bet I'm going to get criticized for that because it's not like Gladiator.<br><br>So when did you last have a vacation?<br><br>Well, I went to Japan for a couple of days at the end of November for the Japanese premiere of Samurai, but look, I love what I do! In January I'll travel to Morocco because Ridley will be shooting his next movie, Kingdom of Heaven, so that's like a holiday!<br><br>My family and I are going away at Christmas, and what we used to do would be to rent a house in the mountains and go on these skiing holidays. It would be a crappy house, not as nice as the one we live in, my wife was still going to the market, and we're still washing our plates – so it wasn't a vacation, it was a lot of work! It's taken us a long time, but we just figured it out: we're not practical with vacations – we're staying at hotels! But while the Zimmer family isn't talented when it comes to vacations, we're talented when it comes to work!<br><br>I sat through Samurai the other day, and for the first time watched the whole movie from top to tail with everything finished and completed. It felt really good, better than a vacation. But luckily there were enough things wrong for me to think that I learned something from the experience, and now I can't wait for the next project to try these new ideas out.<br><br>The soundtrack to The Last Samurai is available from Elektra Records, and the film is currently in theaters. Matchstick Men is available on Varese Sarabande Records.<br><br>With thanks to Chet Mehta at Chasen & Co, Jason Cienkus at Warner Brothers, and Nina Lynch and Mark Wherry at Media Ventures for helping with this interview. And, of course, special thanks to Hans.Mulan get his release... through Disney+, 4th September.Mulan is being released on sept 4th. Can't wait to hear Harry's score!!!!Here's an interview about Last Samurai from Soundtrack.net https: //www.soundtrack. net/content/article/?id=112You can find an interview with Hans on his process for TLS on soundtrack.net somewhere, back in 2003 or 2004
The tracklist they posted has 58 tracks and yours contains only 54<br>interesting thing, He never really spoke about Last Samurai. but you have to realize, even when He speaks, its not always the truth. <br><br>The only thing I know, in 2013 doing press for Rush, He really said the hardest job was Last Samurai, well its not true according to himself, if you watch the behind the scenes stuff from Matchstick Men from 2003, right there He says that he was working on 3 huge films, (tears of the sun / Pirates / last samurai) and Mathstick men was the absolute hardest for him.<br><br>also Ed Zwick talks about working with Hans on the dvd commentary sometimes, but nothing really fancy.<br><br>Im sure there is an interview for this film with him, since he was at the premierI am struggling to find an interview where Hans speaks about this soundtrack. Does it even exist? <br>I spent the last hours digging but nothing. I always desired to hear some comments about it, like he does for the other works he's done.<br>I know it's a far stretch for Hans To release docu scores, but am really curious as to what Brave Miss World, Believer and Jalous of the Birds sound like...<br><br><br>@Mephariel<br>You can find Great Bear Rainforest on bleedingfingersmusic.com under Anze RozmanMondo only offered to send me a return label and a refund.

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.

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.

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.

I was wondering if your team was in need of a Modular Moog technician in the LA area. I have serious credentials, available on request. I do have a much wider range of electronic music equipment expertise as well.

You can contact me at info@showmetheanalog.com

Thanks,
Gene

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...

You're in the wrong place.

How so? I was aiming to be critiqued by either followers or colleagues of Mr. Zimmer... I see others post similar threads... If you had time to read and reply, you had time to reference the links I posted... I would appreciate the criticism... if there is some misunderstanding on my end, please help clear it up... not trying to impose.

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.

Thank you so much for the well thought out response. I am humbled and agree with you fully. If you have any suggestions on books or other material that I could turn to for referencing, it'd make my summer. I plan on developing this craft as much as possible... thanks again. If there's ever something I can do in return let me know.
