Again a "rumor" comment that's trying to undermine Steve's work. And in this case, an entire score. Lorne fans, please stop trying to constantly undermine other composers in favor of your guy. It's childish and extremely disrespectful. You've done it multiple times on these boards. What's next? You gonna claim that Lorne secretly scored the entire Transformers franchise? And Lord of the Rings. And Harry Potter. <br><br>Seriously, it's getting really old, really fast. <br><br>Not to mention the fact that Steve, as a composer, is much, much more experienced and established than Lorne. He's got nothing to prove. Steve takes his time when it comes to scoring. He's choosing carefully. He's got more than enough time to focus on his projects. While Lorne's name is attached to 30 million different projects, some of them cheap B-movies like Hurricane Heist. And you think he's scoring them all by himself? The irony of it all is that if anyone is using ghostwriters most of the time, it's Lorne. Not Steve. And I'm saying that as a Lorne fan as well. I'm not just a Jablonsky fan. I appreciate Lorne's work as well. But I'm not undermining other composers in favor of him.Bay has Lorne scoring his films now cause they established a relationship on 13 Hours, and Bay didn't even want Lorne for that; he wanted Hans but he didn't want to go through the exhausting process of another Bay blockbuster so he brought in Lorne instead.<br>And even then, Hans still worked together with Lorne very closely on the project (Hybrid said he was there for all the meetings, helped with synth programming, etc)Of cause Balfe worked on it .That is why Bay now uses Balfeyou can absolutely hear the 13 hours temp track in Battlefield and We Have to GoNot to mention that Steve and Lorne structure their power anthems differently.<br>To me this score sounds like 100% Steve
I wouldn't say so, Lorne stacks his ostinatos and rhythms on top of each other (see Blackwood, Last Man on the Moon) and shotguns piano writing all over his scores in addition to using it for almost any kind of emotional scene (see Manny, Duck Shoot, Brothers Theme from Hurricane Heist)Well, if all we're using to distinguish Lorne is ostinatos and piano writing, then in that case, he's all over this film!The interesting thing is, that if Lorne did work on it, his work is indistinguishable from Steve's cause I hear none of his ostinatos or extensive piano writing.@Hybrid, a while ago I saw a rumor stating that Lorne Balfe ghostwrote this score and dismissed it as crap.<br>But looking at the credits I see some people from his team have been involved( his assistant Queenie Li as music coordinator, and Max Aruj and Steffen Thum did arrangements..)<br>Do you know why and to which extent he was involved or why his team worked on the score?This little gem of a score is one of my favourites of Lorne's smaller projects.<br>Got a great main theme and varying instrumentations of it throughout, plus he's using a real orchestra which is always good. (Check out The Heist, very upbeat jazzy piece)
Balfe - for anything than bad TV? How much did you smoke tonight? The Mission score must have been a studio decision but Balfe should not be allowed anywhere near a (any) franchise - the dude is a headcase and a total copycat. Tell me one piece that Balfe did that is original?Balfe - for anything than bad TV? How much did you smoke tonight? The Mission score must have been a studio decision but Balfe should not be allowed anywhere near a (any) franchise - the dude is a headcase and a total copycat. Tell me one piece that Balfe did that is original?Looking forward to what Ben's going to do with that movie.Hellboy coming by Sony Classical at 4/5/19Kung Fu Fighting (Celebration Time) on KFP3 also has a HZ credit despite again the booklet not crediting him for anything on it.
I noticed that on Kung Fu Fighting here, Try on KFP3, and Here Comes the Sun on Bee Movie complete that there are primary composer credits on them (HZ, JP here, HZ on Try, Rupert on Here Comes the Sun) but both the film and booklet info doesn't credit them. Did they do ghost arranging/producing on them?Lorne Balfe score for Fallout was perfection so would be perfect for a Chris Nolan film. He also has worked with him on Dunkirk and Inception.But I expect and hope Hans is doing the score .If Hans is notworking with Nolan then Lorne Balfe should do it .So... Can it be considered as the second CD? Or something like that?<br>If Nolan is not working with Zimmer, Ludwig Göransson would be a dream choice for me. I really think he is an up and coming composer capable of great things. <br><br>But of course, I rather Nolan stick with Zimmer.

I loved the soundtrack to "It's Complicated." It was a painting in the background.
I need to see the movie again just to hear the music only. A movie has so many facets

You really threw down on the end credits for Sherlock Holmes - the final modulation coming out of the first cue that leads to the Irish ditty was absolutely fantastic.

Hans, I have been following your music since Gladiator and I even have "for Nancy" as a ringtone on my Iphone. What can I say, since I have that ringtone I smile inside everytime I get a call. Call me crazy but are the little things in life that makes it worthwhile... I have been finding myself looking, when a new movie trailer appear, the Music Composer credit to see if it is you: Now: It's complicated!
Thank you for your music... makes people like me very happy.

Hans,

Fellow composer here. You're pretty much the grandfather of the "BIG" hollywood sound. Much respect to you... I'm curious, did someone clone Steve Jablonsky after you,,, every theme I've ever heard of his mimics one of your themes... either from gladiator (the island) transformers (pearl harbor/the island) and those are the only two OST's i can think of coming from him. however... is this a bastard son we never knew about??? You're a good man

Dear Hans,

these days I am fully in Hans Zimmer mode. Wherever I go, I have your music on my ears. Gladiator. Fantastic. Your incredible ability to put the exact emotions into vibrations is simply...... well, I am speechless. You have produced authentic feelings in me while listening to battle pieces. Like I am there in this very moment. It is even more interesting to me, since I research the expansion of consciousness, through integration of polarities, and this experience produced deep and genuine feelings - a pure jewel in my work.

I am completely overwhelmed with inspiration, joy and strong feelings. I and my every cell that has been enjoying these days - deeply bow to you!!

And looking to your site, I realize that I have just started to discover your work :-))

Greeting from Croatia

Dear M.Zimmer,
iam a shame to say that i only recently discoverd you and your music and i wish i could say that i folow your work for years but it is not the case.

However in the short time that it took me to folow your work and realy listen to it, i have to say that its nothing more than a divine privilege and only now i know that music can reach inside your soul and spark something deep that hide behind so much physical and emotional walls.In relevance to the movies aspect it work wonderful in a way that the music just somehow take you and pot you inside the drama and just make you feel apart of the movie.

The strongst feeling i ever got from any movie soundtrack was in " Chevaliers de Sangreal " ,that music that scene just changed something in me and i felt love and a very strong feel of sacrifice, long after iv seen the movie still every time that i hear that beautiful pice.... can make an adult man to almost cry from feelings that just awake in a spark.

thank you for the opportunity to enjoy such brilliant and deep emotions.

Dear Mr.Zimmer,
My name is Lea de Melo. I am a student in Year 11 at the International School of Geneva and taking the International Baccalaureate.
In Year 11, every student has to do a Personal Project which consists of taking responsibility for our own learning by researching and investigating a topic that interest us.
My Personal Project will attempt to answer the following question: “How does the soundtrack of a film enhance or manipulate the emotional response of the viewer?”
Mr Hand , my project supervisor and the Campus Principal, suggested I contact you because of your significant contribution to film soundtracks.
I play the piano and love film scores. For the practical / creative side of my project, I will be composing the soundtrack for a scene in a film being made by the Head of Performing Arts and some students. I thought it could be interesting to combine the two and learn about how composers go about their work and inform my own composition at the same time. I have already started conducting research by seeing how music enhances the emotion in a movie scene. I have also researched film composers and I am hoping to get some of their professional advice.
I was wondering if you would be willing to answer the few questions below so that I can try to understand and compare the different approaches to process and techniques composers use to create a film score.
1) What process(es) do you use in writing music for a film? Do you discuss the film first with the director? Do you read the script? Do you choose the scenes to be scored or does (s)he or is it a collaboration? Do you view the relevant scenes for your inspiration?
3) How do you choose the style of music you will adopt? Do you work thematically in terms of the whole film?
4) How do you choose the key, rhythm, tempo and dynamics?
5) How do you decide on the instrumentation? Do you believe that certain instruments stimulate or enhance certain emotions? Is the oboe, for example, a ‘plaintive’ instrument?
6) Do you think music can “cover up” a weak scene?
6) Has there been any time during which you were not inspired? How did you find inspiration?
7) What other advice can you give me?
If you would prefer to do this over skype we could conduct the interview verbally but that might be more time consuming for you.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you very much for your time.
Lea de Melo

Thanks for scoring MW2 so we don't get an option to turn the music off if we don't feel like hearing it. MW1's music team was as good if not better than your score.
