It is a life ambition of mine to experience a live performance of it!I missed Jasha Klebe. I thought he did some really good stuff at Bleeding Fingers. I am looking forward to hearing more from Kara Talve. I think she is a really good talent.<br><br>What happened to Marc Streitenfeld? I was going to ask about Klaus Badelt, but I am pretty sure I am not going to get that story.<br>
Tom's more recent work has received more love, but I personally love the Fury Road and Rise of an Empire type soundtrack more. I'm looking forward to this and I hope it's close to what Man of Steel and Dawn of Justice sounded like. Although, the snippet he shared doesn't really sound like it. We'll see.That´s why I asked myself, why dont they ever re-unite like before, so yea, they sometimes doInterestingly, Aljoscha is collaborating a lot with 2WEI these days. The Junkie Team reassembles ! lolOh I see, very interesting! Many thanks for the answer :)Fired ?!
<br>
<br>Haha no.
<br>
<br>You gotta realize being an additional composer is not exactly an easy thing. Some jump ship after a few years or have other aspirations, try to work solo and so on.
<br>
<br>Vörlander worked for Junkie from 2010 to 2015, then started his own business of writing for commercials, trailers etc. (it's called 2WEI, in Germany) He even did keep working on some trailers for JXL's scores after that, or helped on FIFA 17. Junkie had Aljoscha Christenhuß who worked for him from 2015 to 2018. Then Antonio jointed in 2016, Sara Barone joined more recently last year.
<br>
<br>Thomas is doing his own thing too, he founded Chromium Music and is doing some solo projects now.
<br>
<br>Jasha, after working for Lorne & Hans, "transfered" to Bleeding Fingers but after a while left to focus on his own solo career too.
<br>
<br>Ultimately, everyone leaves, sooner or later... :)
@Hybrid, I was always wondering, what happened to composers like Thomas Farnon, Jasha Klebe or Christian Vorlander - why are they not working with Lorne/Junkie anymore? Did they get fired or did they just move on? I find it weird, that Lorne/Rupert/Junkie/Etc would fire their additional composers after all those years of collaboration.The theme he was supposed to write but didn't ? :D lol<br><br>Well don't take word for word what he says. He's being general, the interview was for Forbes afterall.<br><br>Just take the extract we got, it had a quote from BvS that had nothing to do with either Superman or Wonder Woman... lol*forgot to mentioned"Besides the Man of Steel theme for Superman and the theme for Wonder Woman, which I have given a new spin, all the other themes for this movie are brand new,”<br><br>I hope Tom just forget to mention about Batman's theme and will reuse it too, because if he don't, then what's the point of it?Junkie's score for GvK is probably going to be better than his score for Justice League if he is that interested in doing a score for a godzilla movie.
And this<br><br>“On Godzilla vs. Kong, I said, ‘I think we need the biggest bass drum on the planet for this score. I know the guy who can build it, what do you think?’ They just said, ‘Let’s do it.’ So I said I want a bass drum that is at least eight feet in diameter,” he laughed. “The guy called me back, and he asked, ‘Is it okay if it’s only six?’ I said, ‘Could we do eight? Why can’t we do ten?’ The answer was, ‘Well, there’s simply no cow alive that has a skin big enough to cover for a ten-foot bass drum.’ So, we have to scale it down to eight.Also, a bit of GvK:<br><br>'A perfect example is the Godzilla vs. Kong movie that is coming out next year,” he enthused. “I’m such a Godzilla freak. I have all the Japanese versions of the movies. At a certain point, just for s**ts and giggles, I wrote something for Godzilla. About two years ago, I met the director because he showed interest in me as a composer. I asked him, ‘Do you know I’m the biggest Godzilla fan on the planet, and, years ago, I wrote some stuff.’ He was like, ‘You’re kidding me?’ So we started communicating, I tweaked what I did, played it for him, and he was totally in love.”Tom's interview kinda exactly confirms what I said ! lol<br><br>"Besides the Man of Steel theme for Superman and the theme for Wonder Woman, which I have given a new spin, all the other themes for this movie are brand new,” he revealed. “Some of them I did the groundwork on four years ago, but as you grow as a composer, you look at what you did and maybe have a better way of doing it now or a better idea. It was inspiring. I would get an idea in my downtime and think, ‘Oh, let’s rework this thing. Let’s do that.’ Because I knew for a while that this was coming, I had the time and space to shape it into its best possible form."@Hybrid besides Tom style, do you like the more orchestral style with Di Lorio or the more electronic style with Vorlander?Interesting! It sounds like he’s almost starting from the ground up, which actually might end up sounding better than what we would’ve gotten had the original film been released in 2017. <br><br>I’m also interested in the theme suites/sketchbooks he wrote back then, and if they will still be used as a basis for the score. Either way the end result is gonna be cool I feel, hopefully we get a great score release from WaterTower!

Hallo Mr.Zimmer...I do not know if you will ever read my mail, but i wanted to write it for you...I am an 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 studied only music harmony and chorus composition)...And even if i believe them, how can I in this country show my talent? Plenty of my 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...

Hello,

I firstly would like to say a couple of things about me, so that you can hopefully have a better understanding of my comments. I am an aspiring Director in LA, even if this is the worst time since the great depression to be in this industry. I've done a few small projects here and there and though I've grown up with movies my whole life (hence, the profession choice) it wasn't until film school that I started to make a list of all of my favorite film score composers. I began listening to all kinds of soundtracks and it was an interesting journey.

I started out the same way as at least 80% of people out there, saying that "John Williams was the best! Come on, Star Wars, Superman, Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones, and who can say that the soundtrack for Jurassic Park wasn't one of the best soundtracks of all time!" John Williams is a brilliant composer and is definitely one of the greatest of all time, but after leaving the shallow end of the "composer pool", I noticed that I was a big fan of Danny Elfman, (Batman, Edward Scissor-hands, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.) James Horner, (Titanic, Avatar, Aliens, Braveheart,etc.), Jerry Goldsmith (Rudy, Star Trek, Alien, etc.) and many more big names. BUT, I found myself coming back to one composer over and over again.

To sit here and just type in the list of great soundtracks would be pointless, since you can easily find it on IMDb (as well as myself, but not worth your time) or anywhere else on the internet, but I am just going to mention a few. There have been at least a 2-3 dozen soundtracks that have been incredible throughout Mr. Zimmer’s filmography, but it was the "Gladiator" soundtrack that stopped me. That soundtrack became an integral part of the way I thought about the movie making process as a Director. It opened a flood door of trying to collect, listen, and compare as many Hans Zimmer soundtracks as I could. The next phase was with the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks. I found the 3rd movie's soundtrack (At World’s End) as the best and it joined "Gladiator" atop to list. Finally, "The Last Samurai". This soundtrack was innovative and seemed like Mr. Zimmer was “out of his element”, so to speak, but found the challenge of creating music of a different culture new and exciting and it came across very much in the writing.

The reason I have Mr. Zimmer at the very top of my “Favorite Composers of All Time List”, isn’t because he’s mainstream and popular, and it isn’t because he keeps getting teamed with brilliant Directors (even though he is); it IS because I understand that he is unbelievably talented and has a way of making the music he scores come to life. Sure people say that all the time, “the music is supposed to be that way dummy!” It’s more than that with his music. People don’t fully appreciate film scores. You can tell me that you “love it and that it’s amazing” until you’re blue in the face, and I may agree with you; however, until you can comprehend WHY the music FEELS the way it does, EXPRESSES the EMOTION the way it does; and until you can grasp the concept, that someone (namely Mr. Zimmer) has been able to take the same air we breathe, capture it, mold it into tiny notes on a page, then translate these notes with the addition of dynamics, pitch, tone, resonance, and rhythm, into sounds that vibrate that tiny little bone inside your ear, setting off millions of synapses that then influence the chemical make-up of your brain, altering your state of mind and perception until you FEEL your mood start to fall into a trance strikingly similar to the way a cobra dances to the Snake Charmer’s flute. THEN, I’ll know that you understand the abilities, power, and downright magic that Mr. Zimmer possesses.

With all finally being said, I only wish to thank you Mr. Zimmer for the incredible work you do. For the brilliant and masterful way you have influenced how a story is told. Lastly, for the way your music has allowed not only the story, but life itself to enhance the way we perceive the world around us. I can only hope to have the privilege to work with you one day. Thank you.

A True Fan,
-B. Wayne Blackburn III-

I felt so compelled to look this site up to write some sort of feedback. The music for Inception (particularly 'Time' ) is the most beautiful music I have ever listened to. I am practically speechless as to describe the beauty in this music, it cannot be compared.

It is a masterpiece!

Mr. Zimmer,

I'm sure you've heard enough people tell you what an amazing job you've done composing music that is both uplifting and inspiring. I just wanted to say as a young filmmaker, your music from Dark Knight and Inception has inspired me to write both screenplay and music.

There is something in your music that expresses some of the deepest of human emotion and every time I listen to it, it touches my soul. I think "Old Souls" from Inception is your best piece yet followed closely by "Lasiurus" from Batman Begins.

My hope is that one day, when I'm in Hollywood, I will get to work with you. Setting your music to one of my films would be an honor, sir.

I know you're a very busy guy, but I would love to send you a copy of my screenplay for my short film. My email is treeoflifeproductions@gmail.com. Even if I don't hear back from you, please continue to bring inspiration to the world with your music.

Hans, I'm using a translator to write, please excuse if there are grammatical errors. I have 15 years and when I saw the film Spirit was fascinated with your music. I started searching all your discography, and further, that film (with music) made me feel new things: love of horses (now I practice riding), passion for music (I play the piano) and a taste for film music.
Frankly, I consider you a genius, and thank you for what you do, because otherwise I would have loved your music would never be doing so many things that I'm happy.
I want you know, sure I'm not the only person that improve lives, and wanted you to know, because as an artist, you might like to see than people changed with your work.
I send a big welcome, and sincerely I would contact you by e-mail, but I know that is impossible with the artists.
I hope you keep writing more, delighting your audience.
Mailén.

Hello Mr. Zimmer,

I am a graduate student studying Music Technology with an emphasis in Electronic Composition. I want to become a composer for films and video games. I have been a huge fan of your music ever since The Lion King, when I was growing old enough to appreciate film music =) You are incredibly talented! Your music makes each film so much more powerful. It would be an honor to have a chance to intern or work with you. I am also interested in any general advice you have about getting started in the music business. I would be more than happy to send you a résumé and/or some samples of my music. My email address is lnhuddleston@gmail.com. I know you are extremely busy, but I would be ecstatic to hear from you!

Thank you,
Lindsay

Mr. Zimmer,
I promised my sister named Jessica Jimenez I wouldn't but she is a fourteen year old girl who is striving to be more like you. She is constanally trying to go to one of your concerts, but fails to do so. At the moment she is learning to play the guitar, and has picked up the flute, piano and is very good at making her own notes. I want to say thank you very much because without you as her rolemodel she'd be lost. Her words to me are that one day she'll meet and train with you...the best! Thank you and have a wonderful day! :) Becca

Sir, I'm Brazilian and I wanted to tell you that I've never admired an artist so much. I've loved movies since I was born and your scores are truely the essence of most remarkable and unforgettable scenes. You own a real gift. When I close my eyes and listen to your work I feel all emotions one could feel. I have recorded many of them and they give me stregth to wake up every day. They've helped me through tough times. Thank you for presenting humanity with your music implented with spirituality. If you ever come to Brazil, you will feel the warmth the Brazilian people have for you. And if you feel like meeting the alligators from Pantanal, they are like my neighbors. !! Have a nice day.

Mr. Zimmer,
Just wanted to tell you that you are an extremely talented guy. The movies I've seen that you have done the score for are amazing. They help push the movie from something good/ok/great into something fantastic. The music complements the mood and setting and pretty much whatever is going on in the movie so well. I am a particular fan of the action movies you have done like Broken Arrow, The Rock, Dark Knight, the Gladiator score was absolutely beautiful. Big fan, keep doing what you are doing.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
My name is Diego Aldonza Crespo and I am a percussionist from Spain, really passionate about your music, specially one of your later releases "Batman - The Dark Knight". I have always wished to play soundtracks music, because I think it's the next natural step of classical music, and it talks about modern life.
I finished my Bachelor studies in Zaragoza (Spain), and I have a percussion duo with wich I have performed a lot of concerts including Bach music, tango pieces, Zivkovic duos... but it was always too tipical. So listening to your music I had a great idea that would allow me to achieve one of my dreams!! And it is to make some arrangements of your music for duo and electronics, including Midi sounds and tape. I'm writting because I would like to know what you think about it and because counting with your support would be great. I know it sounds very crazy and probably you will never read this, but I hope you understand that I had to try!!
If you want I can send you my resume so you can see that I'm serious about music.

Thank you very much in advance!
Sincerely,
Diego
