Could you please tell me if it's possible to use an excerpt (1 minute or 2) from the track "A Dark Knight", included in the soundtrack of the film "The Dark Knight", in a promotional clip, paying for the licensing rights, of course?
I hope this message doesn't offend you! I very much appreciate mr. Zimmer's work!

Hallo Hans, sein Team und sämtliche Musiker, die mit ihm im Studio oder live arbeiten,
vielen Dank an euch für die bislang überwiegend wundervolle Musik.
Mit dem Live-Konzert in Hamburg ist für mich einer meiner Lebensträume in Erfüllung gegangen. Dies ist für mich ein Grund, bei euch nachzuhaken, ob die Performance der Konzerttournee in absehbarer Zukunft auf CD erscheinen wird? Ich wäre euch allen noch dankbarer dafür!
I wish there was a Hans Zimmer Complete Edition available that contains all(!) of his genius music. (Pretty much the same as the Bach Complete Edition with 142 CDs and a duration of nearly one week :) )
Background: Even though I already bought more than 35 HZ CDs, I still have only a fraction. Most of the older discs (pre 2000) are extremely rare.
Just for the case that someone from RCP reads that message and wants to fulfill this DREAM: Please do also include all unpublished music in the complete edition (especially everything from "The thin red line") - Many thanks :-)
(I already see the HZ Complete Edition box with 500 CDs on my CD shelf) ;-)
If ever possible. You must do a feature with one of the most AMAZING FAMILY OF MUSICIANS Kanneh-Masons extremely talented and full of charisma. I have no relation to them whatsoever, but I am such a huge fan of yours and they seem like if they collabed with you. It would be ground breaking.
I just read the slashfilm.com post saying that you were done with super hero compositions, I'm not going to complain...
I just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic 2013 Man of Steel sound track, I love the percussion, I love the subtle power, the unresolved movement forward of the music, I love the story telling the music does, it really made the movie for me!!!
I'm a huge fan of yours Hans. I'ma music composer that has written a few songs for some rides at Kings Island. I would love to join you in your work sometime. Please, let me know if you would be interested. I'm looking to further my career in music.
Hi, I'm a big fan of that song of you: God Yu Tekem Laef Blong Mi in a thin red line. I haven't learnt much on the internet so far expect it is Malaysian. What I try to know now it's all the cultural things around ? When do the people sing that kind of song ? Is it a death ceremony song ?
To all the mods, to Hybrid, to the community here... since this is the feedback section, I'll go ahead and leave this here:
It may sound funny to say, but thanks for this great site. It's truly a resource for anyone interested in RCP and background on RCP / Zimmer scores, and it's been an awesome place for discussion and learning about all these scores for as long as I've been visiting (5 years or so now). There are lots of great film score / composer sites, but this one tops all of them for me (even though RCP isn't necessarily my favorite in the film score world). So to everybody who makes this site awesome... thank you. :)
Dear Nick, I would like to thank you for nice music you are composing. My family is a big fan of your work. My son (9 years) like your music very much too and he is playing flute. We are looking everywhere for music sheet for flute from the film The Man in the Iron Mask but no succesfull. I would like to kindly ask you if you can send me this music sheet Heart of the King. He would like to train it and surprise his flute teacher. :-) Thank you a lot. Jana e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear, Hans! I made a small amateur film about the rescue of orca and used your song entitled "Rise" from the movie about Batman. You can give permission for its use in non-commercial purposes to display a larger audience of people? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhROS2NJ0Ek
Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer Mein Sohn und ich möchten uns sehr herzlich für das mega Konzert am 23 Mai in Luxemburg bedanken. Ihre Musik inspiriert mich sehr. Aber auch ihre Worte und lebendigen Geschichten haben mich sehr berührt. Vielen lieben Dank
Wir würden uns über eine DVD des Konzerts freuen. :-)
I'm a big fan of yours from Venezuela. I'm a filmmaking student and really interested in the film composing area. For college work, I'm doing a research about your music on these films: Interstellar, Inception, Gladiator and Thelma & Louise.
I would love to show you my work. My email is email@example.com
Hi Mr Zimmer, I am a big fan of your work. Recently a Colorbond Steel advertisement was posted on YouTube and the music played in it sounds all to similar to your 'Cornfield Chase' piece from Interstellar. I know i wouldn't want my music to be copied like that so i just thought I'd inform you. Thanks
Two years my co-founder and myself decided to work together for the next ten years. The only thing we knew is that we wanted to use our full potential to make something important for our children.
It was your music for Interstellar that enabled us to dream, travel to the future and to look at the earth from a distant place.
Now two years later we are at the brink of entering in the light.
Our venture is about the power of teams. We believe that in our near future it is not the products that define success it is the team behind it.
Many teams these days live in the “dark” like we did. Still with nothing to show. They are not the ones in the news. They are building muscles, finding courage to do what we are doing. Which is the impossible.
We want to motivate those teams just like your music has motivated us.
We are now in the process of making a video in which we acknowledge the teams that operate in the dark still and give them the courage to step into the light together and shine.
In this video we would love to use the music from the track Mountains from the Interstellar soundtrack. It is the track that helped us in our darkest days to keep pushing and believing. It gave us the means to dig deep inside ourselves.
We would be honored to be able to use your music. Of course we would pay any needed royalties or license fees.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on +31641171116
Greetings sir Zimmer. I'll try to keep my comment short. I've been in love with Your music since Crimson Tide and The Rock movie, where I first heard Your master pieces. I own most of Your discography on CDs. I've been to Your concert in Bratislava, and I'm sorry for my boldness, but it was sheer disaster. Nothing Your fan would want. You made the worst of the worst out of some nice songs of Yours, You driven a lot of fans out of the hall in second half, not sure if You noticed, plenty of ViP places were vacant after. With hard heart I write this, but Your so called "concert" was the biggest disaster of my life. It has almost nothing in common with Your divine works, it was just a pure plunder for cash and money. I strongly suggest You use something like Symphonic Orchestra next time. What You did in Bratislava will forever be engraved in the souls of Your true fans, as a day You sold Your soul to some drum'n'bass, grunge and whatever-c*ap music You turned Your master pieces into.
I really wonder what kind of fan would buy a VIP seat, then be put off by the 1st half of the concert (which includes very faithful interpretations of The Da Vinci Code, Pirates of the Caribbean or Gladiator, among many others), in such a way that they would LEAVE at the intermission, consequently missing other classics such as True Romance, Rain Man, The Thin Red Line or Inception.
And if you really think his music would sound better with a symphonic orchestra... then your so called collection of CDs must be pretty thin... From the start Zimmer's music has been more about rock and electronics than classical music. Try to play Crimson Tide or The Rock or Broken Arrow or Inception with only a symphonic orchestra, good luck with that! It would sound nothing like the original.
You know nothing Bryan Fury ;) ...no seriously, the music in the concert was exactly like Hans' music is ment to be!
Ds: I actually sat in ViP lounge after first half, for a few minutes, since there were tons of free places, and the true ViP lounges [in the upper rim] were 60-80% empty. Sound in the upper ring was horrid, You couldn't hear a thing, just overwhelming and ultra low quality bass.
ViP places at the bottom were so so, but still, when the Batman theme started, I fleed, because it was nearly tearing my internal organs apart, how strong the bass were. His concert had absolutely nothing to do with his art. Crimson Tide had only a very part of the main theme composed within, there was his choir, which was very weak, all You could hear was always the drums and bass like hell. Lionking was some mix of Lionking 1 and 2 soundtrack, only one part, the first track and some pseudo theme from second. Pirates of Carribean were almost good, yes, they were enjoyable, but they still missed some crucial parts of the main theme. Afaik it was the dead mans chest intro theme, what was played on "concert". Davinci code was of no interest for me, indeed. I wasn't there for Inception, that part I miss [mombasa], it was an encore. I just left, alive, at the Batman theme. Also, back to Crimson Tide. That ending addition of drums was poor excuse for music. There was like few minutes of something that looked like Crimson Tide, and the rest of the track was just bashing into drums, without any notion or reminder of the original theme, nor soundtrack parts.
Whole concert wasn't concert at all, it was just a ruckuss, bashing into drums and totaly cra*tacular sounds stuck together.
Also, I was so dissapointed, there was no The Rock theme, it's one of his best opuses ever.
And I'm not sure if You're having some hearing issues, but Hans's soundtracks are mainly orchestral, vocal, and they have some rock parts in them, very neatly and softly incorporated. I'm listening to Zimmer's opus for almost two decades now, so I believe I still can differ among genres. And Hans's art has nothing to do with drum'n'bass nor grunge, afaik, with rock, yes, a lot, but very good incorporated rock, though mostly, it has to do with orchestral instruments [well, so speaking, he's doing or used to do most of his work on synths, in early 80/90s afaik.].
"And I'm not sure if You're having some hearing issues, but Hans's soundtracks are mainly orchestral, vocal"
Apparently I've been wrong for many many years... :O Thanks for pointing this out ! lol
Thanks for the lengthy answer Bryan, but your statement is full of mistakes. Apparently you think you know Hans' music, but it is pretty obvious you dont know it that good. Driving Miss Daisy and Sherlock Holmes were almost copy-pasted from the original tracks. Madagascar was a superior rearrangement and a great intro for the orchestra. Crimson Tide was like the original version, except they extended the climax (which is a spectacular idea). Then Angels and Demons sounded 100% like on album, with a drums intermede inserted in the middle (I net you thought that was still Crimson Tide, lol). Gladiator was a glorious 15min of all the very best pieces from that movie, faithfully arranged. Da Vinci Code was genuine beauty (but you had no interest in it, too bad for you). Then Pirates had the Jack theme, the love theme, an unreleased, fan-favourite cue (awesome gift to the fans, and proof that Hans knows very well how to please us), and then the famous theme everyone on this planet knows.
Dont tell me it is a cashgrab, it is an absolutely wonderful selection, with diverse styles and instrumentation.
Second part had very faithful arrangements of Man of Steel, The Amazing Spiderman 2, Inception, True Romance, Rain Man, Thin Red Line and Interstellar. Admittedly the Dark Knight was full of drums, distorsion, guitars in a very Dark, agressive mood, even more than in the official soundtrack, but those scores were pretty savage to begin with.
So dont blame Hans for being faithful to his music or his fans. Blame yourself for having such a poor knowledge of Hans Zimmer's music. My advise: re-listen to your collection, and purchase the dozens of albums you obviously never checked out :-)
I was at the Vienna concert this friday and it was breathtaking. 16000 people came and the crowd went absolutely crazy when the band started to play Dream Is Collapsing at the end. Nobody left before the end. The sound was amazing, I can't even think of one thing to complain about. If you're more into the likes of Hannibal, Last Samurai or Beyond Rangoon then this wasn't the concert for you but there were plenty of recordings from the two london concerts on youtube that would have warned you beforehand that it's going to be loud.
Gestern Abend in Graz durfte ich Sie live miterleben und war unglaublich begeistert. Tausend Dank, dass Sie und ihr Team ihr Talent mit uns teilen und wir so an ihrer Welt teilhaben dürfen. Ihre Musik live zu erleben war für mich und meinem Freund einfach eine große Bereicherung. Wir waren emotional äußerst ergriffen und wir wurden tief in unseren Herzen berührt. Ein riesiges Danke dafür und wir sind uns einig dass wir noch lange von ihrem Konzert zehren werden.
ich danke Ihnen für dieses außergewöhnliche Musikspektakel gestern Abend in Budapest. Ich war nicht schlecht erstaunt, als Sie zu Beginn über Ihre Hartneckigkeit erzählten, in Ihrer Filmmusik auch Chor zu verwenden. Bravissimo und Chapeau dafür. Weiterhin viel Erfolg wünscht Ihnen Wolfgang Ziegler, Präsident des Chorverband Österreich
