thanks4:05 of "STEALTH" some of the best soulful action music I've heard from a Zimmer score. I wonder who wrote that particular section. This the type of stuff I would play trying to rush a pregnant woman to the hospitalIn case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.<br><br>Job well done, my friend.@Hybrid <br>You don't add anymore Trevor Morris things ?Probably for chronological purposes<br>even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that time
i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene.<br>===============================<br><br><br>I agree. <br><br>And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.<br><br>People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.<br><br>It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...<br><br>It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.<br>===========================<br><br><br>I totally get what you're saying. I also get kinda frustrated when a "big" track overshadows an entire score. The best recent examples are IMO the Transformers scores. I don't blame folks for gravitating towards the epic sound and the power anthems, but A LOT of subtle, equally great tracks end up getting completely ignored. And just like you, they're usually my favorite tracks. <br><br>But why most people don't think like us?<br><br>The reason I think is because those "big tracks" are presented - most of the time - during the most memorable moments in those movies. They immediately get people's attention. They're stuck in their mind along with those iconic images. And I think by nature, people are more attracted to the big and "in your face". For most casual listeners the more subtle tracks work in the context of the movie and they absolutely do notice them while watching the actual film. But unlike you and I they don't feel the need to listen to them separately. They're too busy paying attention to the "big track". That goes even for some score fans.<br><br>While tracks like the Star War theme, the Indy theme, the Transformers theme, the Gladiator theme, the Godfather theme, the Armageddon theme, the Pirates theme, the Lord of the Rings theme are so big, melodic abd easily digestable that folks simply can't resist them. And when there are vocals involved as well (like Gladiator) it's even better, because people treat it as a full-blown song. An emotional song that they can listen to over and over again.<br><br>The subtle tracks simply can't win against that. Sadly....<br><br>By the way, speaking of The Island, My Name is Lincoln (as much as I like it) is not my favorite track of the score. The more subtle opening track (The Island Awaits You) and especially the Lima One Alpha theme are my personal favorite tracks. Of course, they're nowhere near My Name is Lincoln, in terms of popularity.<br>Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?Yeah that is true, can’t argue there lol<br><br>And is it me or does “Calypso Must Be Released” sound like Black Hawk Down?To be fair there is a lot of King Arthur in At World's End too. Just the general feeling you get from the action tracks in both scores is virtually identical. Hell, one of the main themes from King Arthur even appears when Bootstrap Bill remembers that Will is his son.
@MrTweedy<br>That’s totally fine, everyone has their own favorite HZ scores, which is awesome!<br><br>It’s funny though, I feel like DMC is far more schizophrenic than AWE. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love DMC. It’s the score that got me into Hans Zimmer. But still, I feel like a major part of that score is note-for-note reprises of cues/themes from COTBP. Not to mention the temp tracking of King Arthur.<br><br>AWE always felt far more original to me, especially considering that the entire tone of the music shifts from the “rock’n’roll” sound of the first two to a more traditional score (at least by Hans Zimmer standards lol)@MrTweedy<br><br>Just curious, what scores do you considered to be Zimmer's best?The Pinnacle of Hans' career?<br>Although I really like this score, I don't agree. But hey, I know it's just a matter of opinion, okay? ;)<br><br>Of course it shows Hans strengths in almost every area (action, drama, romance, comedy...) but for me it's too much of a medley of previous works, without much personality.<br>It feels a bit like a palette with too many colors. From the action sequences borrowed from Drop Zone, to the Morricone inspirations for Jack's Sequences, to Gladiator's duduk that ended up there with no real reason, to a beautiful Love Theme that brings another new shape to the sonic identity... it's like the score sometimes goes schizophrenic.<br><br>Though each individual idea is really enjoyable to listen to, I think Hans has made scores that are much more cohesive and enjoyable as a whole!i also think it is an underrated score. especially the action music has a couple of nice touches. i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene. the emotional music is nothing ground breaking, but a lovely listen.Y'know, it's funny. The big names that always get the most attention in film music are often not my favorite tracks of the scores they represent. Now We Are Free, Arrival to Earth, Like A Dog Chasing Cars, Star Wars Main Theme, Indiana Jones Main Theme, Infinite White, One Day, Circle of Life, The Fellowship. Though they are the most well known, they're usually nowhere near the peak of quality of their scores. <br><br><br>I noticed this the most in Hans Zimmer's concerts (not World of Hans Zimmer mind you). The parts he played from The Dark Knight Trilogy in particular usually had the least substance. Just the bombastic tracks. The only choice I agreed with was Time from Inception. There was no Am I Not Merciful, A Watchful Guardian, Sunrise Over Pride Rock, none of that. <br><br><br>Even with Star Wars, the main theme and the Force theme are solid pieces of music, but neither come close to the beauty of Princess Leia's theme, or the wondrous Yoda theme. <br><br><br>Same with Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship Reunited, Very Old Friends, Gollum, and The Breaking of the Fellowship are much more substantial pieces than The Fellowship Theme alone in my opinion. <br><br><br>Can't say anything about My Name is Lincoln because I haven't finished The Island score yet, but yeah. I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.
Thanks guys, will check out these cues.Hmm, aside from "The Guardian Suite' I don't think I've heard any other tracks from this score. And I have a feeling I'm not the only one....lol.<br><br>Speaking of.........I would most definitely put "The Guardian Suite' right up there next to "Now We Are Free" and "My Name is Lincoln". It's *that* good and powerful. Shame that the movie is not as popular as The Island and Gladiator. If it was, that suite would've been one of the most popular film score tracks with millions of views on YouTube. It certainly deserves it.Very underrated score. As already pointed out by a couple of reviewers, it's a nice, little throwback to MV/RC's Golden Years and Trevor's own scores from 1997 to 2002. Give it a listen if you can. It's not long and it's worth it.The action cue "Escape" is easily one of my favorite from Powell. And the final cue for the scene right before the ending is absolutely beautiful. Face/Off is actually my favorite Powell score I think.If we're talking about the complete score, then<br><br>The Merry-Go-Round of Life<br>Airport Chase<br>Escape<br>Mikey's Grave<br>Boat Chase<br>Homecoming<br><br>is a good sampler of the absolute highlights to get you started. "Homecoming" (called "Ready for the Big Ride, Bubba" on the album release even though a different cue has that name on the complete score) is actually a really beautiful cue, one of my favorites from Powell.

Dear Hans,

Your work is fantastic! For the case that you may need a great vocalist on future productions, I'd like to introduce to you Jean Shy, 2009 Blues Music Award Nominee for "Soul Blues Female Artist Of The Year." Jean Shy is a brilliant, and "one of a kind" Artist.

A critique once described Jean's performance as follows:
Jean Shy has the conciseness of a Tina Turner, the vivid Northern-Soul feeling of a Van Morrison, the expressiveness of an Etta James and she convinces above all with one thing "honesty."

You can check out some of her Music at www.jeanshy.com

Wishing you continued success.
Best regards

From a fellow Frankfurter, helper777 [at] yahoo.com

Hans Zimmer is the music legend of our time. I have never heard better music than his, and I'm certain I never will. Some parts of his songs have even made me cry, though I was sure that I didn't even know how to cry anymore, for I hadn't cried in many, many years before listening to his music. I can't even find the right words to describe how great and absolutely perfect his music is. Total epicness. Simply stunning.

I just wanted to say that Hans Zimmer is the most incredibly talented and amazingly stunning composer that I have ever, ever, ever heard before in my life. I have just about finished writing my first novel and I could just about credit the entire thing to Hans as every time I lost the plot (both my mind and the story) I would turn his music on, sit with my eyes closed and let anything at all come to me and everytime without fail, his music inspired something new and creative in my mind. THANK YOU HANS ZIMMER!

Hi,
I'm looking for a web site of Rupert Gregson-Williams. Unfortunately he hasn't any one. So I try my request here. I am looking desperately for Piano Sheet Music of "Jack and the Beanstalk", main theme/ harp song. Unfortunately, I can get it anywhere. So you’re my last hope. Would you be so kind to pass on my request to Rupert Gregson-Williams? I hope you have a heart for a fan. Best wishes from Cologne, Germany. Bettina

To the greatest man that the earth has brought,
If somebody ask me to choose one book, i could'nt. If somebody ask me to choose one movie, i could'nt too.
But if somebody ask me to choose a music man, i'll choose, without any doubt, you.
Since I'm able to walk, my life is rocked by the soundtracks of movies to which you contributed.
Today, not a day passes without some music invented by you do not resound in my ears.
I only want to say you "thank you very much" for these moments full of emotions.
I hope your time will be infinite, and your magnificence, incomparable.

Mr Zimmer, Thanks for another lovely soundtrack- The PACIFIC. I am part of a foundation doing preservation work on the Peleliu battlefield and your Peleliu cuts are eerie, haunting, and somehow capture
an essence of the place. Now I listen to the CD for accompaniment to some of my work, and some
inspiration for the efforts. Music is very powerful, one cannot ever underestimate how it can have an
affect things, such as a project to preserve a battlefield where so many died. This is a very symphonic,
sublime, deep, and contemplative effort by your team. I will no doubt hear it in my mind's ear when I am there, on island, later this year. Bravo.

Hi!

You guys are doing a great job covering the main topics of a brilliant composer. Thank you. There is one big thing I miss tho on this page and it's the Hans Zimmer "gear" list. What kinda hardware and software does he use for his midi mock-ups and so forth? And what could he recommend for aspiring composers to use? That would be a great additional to this page! Until then keep on brining the good stuff... :)


Cheers,
Mats from Norway.

Hey Mr. Zimmer,
My name is Garrett and I am a huge fan of your work. Your music inspires me to say the least and it would absolutly be incredible if you were able to read this in your very limited spare time. I'm a 15 year old highschool student and it would mean so much to see your written score for At Wit's End on the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest soundtract. I have written some short pieces of music and am in the middle of writing a choral. It has been my dream to arrange some of your briliant pieces for band. I play the trumpet in school at the moment and am also taking music lessons for piano. I don't want to give you my life story here but if you had a couple of minutes out of your day to email me a response or anything I would be ecstatic. My email is: garrett626@hotmail.com.
Thx for your time Mr. Zimmer,
Garrett

Hello Mr Zimmer
After over 3 years of searching for the sheet music notation to your score 'injection' which I find to be a beautiful & moving piece of music.

I'm on the verge of giving up looking & I found what I can only call a tiny spark of hope in this last request, in that somehow, someday, you might read this & bless me with the notation to the masterpiece.

The reason I am asking is purely for the purposes of looking in to your way of thinking & artistry in hope that some day (with my present limited composing skills) I can be in league with you & know what it feels like to bless the world with the gift such as which you possess.

My email is:

I would be forever in your debt if you could just bless me with my strongest desire to view your work on paper.

Thank you for your time

Looking forward to your next work very much
