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.

It's a soundtrack, you're supposed to put all the music on it.

I would appreciate it if in the future all of the Kung Fu Panda soundtracks actually included ALL the music from the movie.

I am greatly disappointed in the fact that I paid for something and realistically only got half of it.

Same with the Kung Fu Panda 2 Soundtrack.

Is there any chance we could get the music that is missing from the soundtracks?


Mycroft2012-01-12 04:51:15
This place is only a fan site, man. Asking the webmasters and programmers of this site to give you the missing music to the soundtracks you seek isn't going to help you at all. They might not even have the music themselves--and even if they did, they aren't just going to share it with you because you want it. No, they might not even share it with you if you paid good money.

There is absolutely nothing you can do nor is there anyone you can contact here or hardly anywhere else on all of the world wide web who can help you get the music you seek. I hate to be a dream crusher, but that's the way it has to be--it's the way the world goes round.


Sad Fan2012-01-12 05:05:57
I just fund out that on the Kung Fu Panda 2 website, it has an auto playing music thingy, that plays through the entire soudntrack of KFP2, only that, it has EVERY song from the movie, unlike the soundtrack. Now, how to download them....


theeaglesfan0052012-01-12 16:54:56
the record companies dont see a huge market in releasing FULL scores... they put 60ish minutes or so & sell it... there's apparently a bigger market in commercial releases.. makes me mad... i mean LOTR & The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo have full releases that you can buy.. i hope TDKR does this


Mycroft2012-01-12 17:35:57
@Sad Fan: You can download an add-on for Firefox that will snag that music for you. Or you can go digging deep into your temp internet folders. And if all that's too complicated, you could just do a stereo mix recording of the music that's playing through Audacity.


Sad Fan2012-01-13 01:00:41
Yes, I managed to download all the songs, but unfortunately, they are all crap quality. This pisses me off so much.

Hello RCP team, now in english.

I have a question which I can find on the Internet now no conclusive answer. As it now looks really, if I want to use the amazing music from you in a Machinima (video game)? Can I? It should be posted on the YouTube platform then. Where would I updating of course, that this music comes from Hans rooms. Question now, I allowed to do that ... through some forums and have not come to the answer which really is acute! :) Thank schonmal, and the BEST OF album - Prague Philharmonic is really beautiful! :)

Kind regards, Dennis!

Hallo RCP Team,

ich habe eine Anfrage worauf ich im Internet nun keine schlüssige Antwort finden kann. Wie sieht es nun eigentlich aus, wenn ich die atemberaubende Musik von euch in einem Machinima (Game Video) verwenden möchte? Darf ich das? Es sollte auf der Youtube Plattform dann veröffentlicht werden. Wo ich natürlich beischreiben würde, das diese Musik von Hans Zimmer kommt. Frage nun, darf ich das.... hab einige Foren durch und komme nicht zu der Antwort die nun wirklich akut ist! :) Vielen Dank schonmal, und das BEST OF Album - Prague Philharmonic ist echt wunderschön! :)

I'm searching for a special track from the movie "Backdraft", that doesn't seem to be on the Soundtrack CD. Can anybody here name me anyoe who could help me with that?
Thanks.


Mycroft2012-01-07 18:04:04
Well, if it's not on the OST and there are no expanded versions of the score (are there? I've never even heard of this film), then likely the only people who can help you aren't going to. The elitist pigs have all the music us low-downs could ever dream of having but they are not allowed to share their music because of the way the world works.


Dennis2012-01-08 19:23:23
Yeah, it is not on the OST and I haven't found something like an expanded or extended version...what a pity. Searching for this track for years.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
It is my dream to work on compositions for video games and films. I have been an accomplished musician for some time now, and I have played guitar since age six. I am now twenty-one years old, and I am pursuing a bachelors degree in video game production, and hopefully afterward, a bachelors in composition. I have so many questions before I make my final decision. I was just wondering if you could tell me how I can become a great composer if I am already memorizing my compositions, and playing them on guitar. Do you use any specific computer recording, enhancing, or mixing programs? If so, which ones? This has been my dream for such a long time, and I have been a huge fan of your mastermind compositions since "The Gladiator". Thank you for continuing to be a great inspiration!

Respectfully,

Benjamin Sterling HArtman

Hallo!
Ich habe kürzlich eine Rockversion von Hans Zimmers "Dream is Collapsing" aufgenommen. Auch wenn der Traum, dass Hans Zimmer himself es mal zu hören bekommt wohl nicht in Erfüllung geht, erreiche ich hier sicher ein paar Leute die es interessiert.
Ich weiß nicht wie das mit Spam und direktem Verlinken ist, daher verzichte ich darauf. Wer Lust hat, einfach "Steffen Schöps Hans Zimmer" bei Youtube in die Suchleiste eingeben!
Ich danke euch! :)

Whoopsy... sorry, this is an international page and it deserves an english comment!
So i just wanted to say that i made a Rock Version of Hans Zimmers "Dream is Collapsing". I know that the dream that Hans Zimmer himself could hear it will not come true, but still i think that there are a few people here that could be interested.
So if you want, just write "Steffen Schöps Hans Zimmer" in the Youtube Search bar. That`s it, so easy!
Thanks a lot! :)

My two cents, take it or leave it...

I LOVE this site! It's a great resource and pretty much THE go-to place for information on Zimmer and co. People need to stop destroying the integrity of this site by posting unofficial and unchecked tracklists, and requesting EVERY SINGLE SCORE in existence just because they found the track titles on ASCAP. I know Hybrid works very hard to get this information, and we should be happy with what we've got.

If you want bootlegs, do a little detective work and figure it out yourselves. Count on Hybrid to post what's real; the man does his homework.

well do it Hybrid do it, you have the power, don't you, what kind of arrogance. What maintain this site as number one for over the years was definitely the information of many of the unreleased scores. But, like you say, just a few clicks and the secondary market in gone forever, it's your page.


Mr. Fate2011-10-29 02:04:28
You present a valid point Anonymous. Sure, some of the discussions of recent have gotten out of hand and are a mess, but there are many useful pieces of information around this site. I'd think it would be sad to lose all that information, especially since this place is about the only place you can find it.

It may be a drastic analogy (just because I couldn't think of anything on a smaller scale) but it'd almost be like the burning of the Library of Alexandria. So much information was stored there, and then it got burned down losing countless priceless documents for all eternity. What great writings could have been there that we never even knew existed? If you choose to delete whatever you want to, you could be destroying information that could have been of value for many years to come.

Perhaps, I don't entirely understand what all Hybrid was thinking about deleting, but I'd just like you to consider these sort of things before making a regrettable decision.


cheesy2011-10-29 02:41:08
Don't you think bootleg discussion would continue either way? I mean, let's be real here, most of the crap discussions about fake complete scores actually take place on the topic boards for official albums (like recent Inception, Sherlock Holmes, ect). Deleting the secondary market pages wouldn't stop these discussions. In all honesty, it would probably just make the problem even worse, due to the scramble and lack of information. I think if we could just revert back to merely a few months or so ago, when the bootleg discussion was minimal yet consolidated and helpful, then we would see the balance.

I don't know if Hybrid was just making a veiled threat there, but going through with the decision in question just seems like it would be counterproductive, unnecessary, and, above all, regrettable. I second everything the others said, and affirm the usefulness of the information you're threatening to delete. Anon has a point; the secondary market pages are what make this site so unique.

I just bought the album Kettle Whistle by Jane's Addiction and to my surprise I saw Harry Gregson-Williams produced a couple of tracks on it. Some of these tracks were also mixed/recorded at Zimmer's old studio, Media Ventures. As a fan of both Jane's and HG-W, I was pretty excited about this. Anybody here know more about this unusual collaboration?

Hola soy de República Argentina (America del Sur). Es increíble la música que Hans realiza. Yo lo conoci y me hice fanatico con la pelicula Gladiator junto a Lissa Gerard. Luego lo descubro mas con otros films como Piratas del Caribe,Rain Man, etc, etc,. Queria hacerle un pedido si esta dentro de sus posibilidades. Quisiera la traduccion del tema que toca su orquesta junto a johnny marr -Inception Premiere- Es un tema que lo escucho y me inspira el comienzo de cada dia por la fuerza que tiene. muchas Gracias!

I really like the music Hans Zimmer and the people he works with create and I became curious about his work and his career. So I visited some websites and found the following information on imdb.com :

"He told in an interview that he would retire for some years after The Dark Knight, saying he has been exhausted in the past years. He also said that he wants to help young composers and would produce their scores..."

That impressed me and earned my appreciation. But then I checked whether it's a valid information or not because I thought it would mean that he wants to try to help and support young composers, that he would try to encourage and promote young talents. Anyways I must have got that wrong because when I came to this site one of the first things I read was " Hans Zimmer and other composers from Remote Control do not accept demos or unsolicited audio/video material. Please, don't ask us how to contact them either. " But then if I didn't get it wrong, and I must say I hope so, how will he be able to discover talents? If there was somebody who is really a great composer/musician, how could he get to know it when it says that he doesn't want to be contacted? I'm just curious about that and I hope I can get some answers, thank you (:

You said you were curious - here are the answers

1. Start composing ; get a degree ; compose for anything you can get paid for.

2. Get representation - Zimmer/Rifkin Remote Control Productions can't solicit material from you or Joe Compose without an (accredited) agent or manager.

3. In terms of contacting - these (awesome) dudes can't because they run a FAN SITE.

4. Networking - everyone knows someone. And some people might know a guy who's an RCP dude. Being nice and a book of faces are your film friends are key here.

5. GET OUT THERE AND DO IT. Because procrastination gets you nowhere.

Now ...go.

^ This all applies to Lorne Balfe's early career.

Does anyone know where I can find a copy of a song called "Price"? I understand it was either composed or remixed by Ryland Allison while working with Hans Zimmer.
Any leads?

Saw new Steve Mcqueen film "Shame"at Venice Film Festival last week. The opening & closing music is very similar to The Thin Red Line score. Does anyone know if this is intentional? Is it a variation on the original theme? HZ is not credited...
