This mean the recording sessions?First Jedi Fallen Order, now Solo? I love this news! And I get the distinct feeling both releases are being used to determine interest in further Star Wars expanded score releases further down the line! Only real bummer is no CD to go on the shelf, but I'll take this any way it comes!He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Very curiousFantastic! Looking forward to that variation on Duel of the Fates! Now the only complete Powell collection I'm looking for is HTTYD 3.It's coming in November!!! This is so cool!!
Not referring you, superEXPANDED RELEASE SON!!!!!!!!!! LET'S GO!You mean that's GREAT news !Now that’s good news!I hear Harry Potter in tracks like "Playful Secrets" and "Labyrinths & Humps". <br><br>Yes i realize Elfman has had similar sounds to those tracks too, but i think Steve is at the very least trying to homage Harry Potter in a few sections. <br><br>And personally I think the main theme is the most Pirates-like, but that's why i said there's still Zimmer influence, (yes i know a few tracks sound like King Arthur too), but it's not overwhelming for the most part.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (The Deluxe Edition)<br><br>Coming soon to digital exclusive streaming: over 2 hours of original/unedited music from Solo: A Star Wars Story [as written for the film]<br><br>All cues + the original unedited version of the end credits suite!I never made the statement that only orchestral scores are good. I like the TF movies, Halo soundtracks, a lot of Hans Zimmer works including Interstellar. <br><br>However, i have little appreciation or interest in scores with little to no melody besides basic progressions. I need a heart to my score, not just music that works for the movie.Agree, solid work, but dosen't sound like John Williams, more like Danny Elfman.<br><br>Also, the main theme sounds like Pirates of the Caribbeanwhat an incredible album! it is getting very close to my personal favorite which is dunkirk. there is so much mastery in both. one thing that dunkirk has that this album doesn't have is a sense of repetition. both albums have some kind of non-finality. with dunkirk, i feel transported back to the beginning. with this one, i am not sure what comes next.<br><br>Hans and team probably have their share of anecdotes but here's another one.<br><br>i was playing this one day and my friend's daughter asked me if this was from... she hesitated and asked: the dark phoenix movie? i was astonished. she is 12 and probably not into movie scores. but she was able to pinpoint the right movie from a random part. that's something many aspire to. especially with the millions of super heroes movies out there!<br><br>i told her how impressed i was and went on unleashing my Hans Zimmer collection onto her haha :)Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>
I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',

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

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

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.

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
