Sadly, he doesn't seem to say anything new besides the background information on the Zimmer and Harry Gregson scores he's worked on. Plus the Skyscraper information still doesn't excuse the generic committee product that score turned out to be.Does anyone know what songs Max Aruj and Steffen Thum have worked on?Though there are differences, I think HZ & NGS styles mix together rather well.<br><br>Tracks like "Fort Walton", "Goodspeed Tracks Jade" or "Jade" are exceptions for sure. Apart from these, most tracks blend very well, imo.<br>It's very different from Armageddon for exemple, when team Trevor and team Harry had very different styles (big anthems & guitars VS darker material and more subtle theme developments) and also different sound equipments (I can tell immediately who did what thanks to the sound banks they used). The Rock doesn't suffer from those extreme differences imo.<br><br>We fans here listened to those scores for over 20 years and we've learnt how to spot each composer (thanks to this website and all the infos on each track we got over the years). I'm not sure I could have noticed all those details back in 1996, or even 10 years ago.<br><br>Nonetheless, The Rock is one of the greatest action scores ever. While more coherent scores like Crimson Tide or The Fan grew on me over the years, The Rock keeps a very special place in my heart.yes i hope 2 cd!!!!Hi, <br>Ever paid tribute to Gorecki?<br>I think you should<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Mjt Sprengers
The only way I won't be able to the listen to it before the episode is if it will be released in Germany in the night to tuesday. But I don't know how I would find that.Does someone know something about the soundtrack already? Like how many songs there will be or maybe even the full track list? Or will it be a big surprise?I will, Backbiter, because I live in Germany and in my country the final episode will be released on monday. I will watch it with my friends and therefore we will watch it around 8pm in my time. If the soundtrack will be released in the night from sunday to monday, I will be able to listen to the soundtrack before I watch the final episode.Yasss<br><br>Please be 2 discsThis is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.<br><br>Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?
Very interesting interview. Thanks man!Judging by the YouTube views, not a lot of people have listened to this 1-hour chat with Steve. So I'm posting it here for you folks to enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR0TPYmidNYI have nothing against any of the composers who worked on The Rock, but to my ears, the Nick Glennie-Smith stuff sounds obviously different from the Hans Zimmer stuff, and they both sound very different from the Harry Gregson-Williams stuff. And the transitions are a tad jarring at times. I've never seen anyone else post this opinion before, though, so I may be the only one!<br>=====================<br><br><br>That's actually very interesting. Never thought of it that way. And you're right. For those who are well aware of the overall MV/RC sound, there is indeed a difference between the Zimmer style and the Glennie-Smith style. However, I think that the two styles blend pretty well in The Rock. The movie itself allows for that. So I would argue that, while watching the actual movie, the two styles work very well together and they complement each other. <br><br>But listening to the score alone, yes, I can definitely see where you're coming from. The differences are obvious. Having said that, I still consider it to be a masterpiece of action scoring. And not only action. The emotional bits are great too. JADE is an extremely beautiful and tender track :))<br><br>P.S. The Peacemaker is on my personal TOP 5 of the greatest action scores of all time. I can't believe the score is not as popular as The Rock. Same for Eraser, by the way. Watch the movie again on a good sound system and you'll be blown away by the awesome Silvestri score. I really wish those two scores were more popular with the public......The 90s had some of the greatest action movie scores ever<br>================================<br><br>Without a doubt. I grew up in the 90s and I was there for all of it. Truly one of the best decades for film music (and for cinema in general). I mean, it's the decade that changed action scores forever. Exactly because of scores like The Rock, Twister, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Granted, Harold Faltermeyer kinda started it all in the mid-80s with his work on Top Gun, Tango and Cash and Beverly Hills Cop 2, but it was Hans and his team who really got the ball rolling. By the way, I'm super happy that Hans and Faltermeyer are teaming up for Top Gun 2. At least according to IMDb....<br><br><br>==================<br>The opening theme is probably Zimmer's best in the genre<br>==================<br><br>Agreed. It's the ultimate Zimmer power anthem. I know the younger generation knows Hans mainly from his work on comicbook movies like Batman and Spider Man, but for me, 90's Zimmer will always be the best Zimmer. And my favorite Zimmer :))I'm so excited hear that.
No you won't, the score will be released after the final episode.Yesssssssssss yessss yesCan't wait for this soundtrack.<br>Just a few days left.Oh. My. Gods. (The old ones and the new.) That's so good news. And I can't wait for sunday.<br><br>The best is, that I can here the soundtrack before I watch the final episode. And I like to hear to a score without knowing wich music belongs to what kind of scene.Yesss. Can't wait!

Dear Mr.Zimmer,
My name is Torsten Gran-Ruaz. First and foremost I just wanted to say that I really love your work, and it has inspired me to want to do film composing. I live on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada and I play mostly guitar and piano. I know that the road to a musical career is a difficult one but I am willing to work as hard as I possibly can to make it happen. I am currently in grade 11 at high school, but I am planning on going to Humber College/University in Toronto for a bachelor's degree in contemporary music. I was inspired to contact you when I heard about Ramin Djawadi, because he seems to have been in a similar situation (guitar player, written for bands, etc) and I heard that he was helped greatly by you to achieve his goals. I was wondering if you could recommend maybe some schools or paths I could take to one day perhaps be taken under your wing, or if you're too busy, if maybe there's someone else who could help me out that you could recommend. Again I love your work and thank you for helping to inspire me! I understand that you're a very busy man, and it would be a treat to hear from you.

Thanks and have a great summer!

Torsten

Love Hanz Zimmer, I think his best stuff for me personally was the Broken Arrow OST.

certain parts are so chilling, I know a big part of it is the choir, but the way it goes from calm to chaos is really engaging.

Germany should be so proud.

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

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.

Hallo Mr.Zimmer...I do not know if you will ever read my mail, but i wanted to write it for you...I am i 18 Greek boy and i always admired your music-scores and in general all film scores...I have already finished my music studies with an A degree in piano studies, and i also compose my own orchestral scores. People in my country, teachers everywhere in greece say that i am really good, almost a genius...I never believed them. I mean i know I have some perfect fresh ideas and i know that i am composing for a huge orchestra even though noone tought me how(i studies only music harmony and chorus composition)...And if even i believed them, how can I in this country show my talent? Plenty of music sheets, My 'Rhapsody for a dream' for a huge orchestra, chorus and piano, my piano studies, soundtracks for films and whole new ideas which i do not write them, beacause like the others will end up on my desk waiting to be played for ages...And i speak to you Mr.Zimmer beacause i do not know to whom i may speak...Who can advise me what to do??...you are one of my music idols, talented, successfull, your dream is complete! When will my dream come true?! I know you are to busy to meddle with problems like my one...but you could help me. And remember how much i want to make this dream a reality but i can not alone...Thanks Mr.Zimmer if you read this...or any other reader...And if you could help in someway please contact me...my email address is www.vasilis_al@yahoo.gr...

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
