About his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?
He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for meAw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.
Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.Copied from Filmtracks:<br><br>Excellent score - a little slow in the middle third*, but some really stirring fantasy-adventure elsewhere. "The Internet" is Cue of the Year material. Although it's odd how little synth there is here, particularly in the finale, where the orchestra seems to completely take over; this isn't too bad of a thing because Jackman's orchestral skills are downright breathtaking at times. The references to other Disney scores/musicals (yes, including Star Wars) left a big dumb grin on my face.<br><br>*I get the sense that this movie might be too long (1 hour and 52 minutes).No you're not. I think Jackman has made some great score over the last through years.<br>And I think this is one of them. Both tracks with or without electronics
So I guess I'm the only one who likes less-electronic-Henry?Henry has been removing electronics for 4 years now...Listen to<br><br>A Big Strong Man In Need Of Rescuing.<br><br>That whole track is a damn easter eggI haven't seen the movie yet but I like the score more with each listen. Not a classic Zimmer by any means but still an enjoyable listen at its short running time. Looking forward to the movie as well.This is me or Henry Jackman removed the electronics this year it could be affect to the predator score because I was thinking about the predator score affect him to remove electronics and turned serious & dramatic. That's weird when Henry Jackman used a lot electronics & fun since 2009 to 2017 with his scores.

I'm curious if anybody else has noticed the eerily-identicalness of King Arthur's "Do You Think I'm Saxon?" (towards the later part) when compared to Dead Man's Chest "Hello Beastie." There are a couple of measures in there where it is the EXACT same setup, crescendos, and even tune and choir. I was very curious as to figure out what made Hans Zimmer use the same elements/tunes from King Arthur and use them on Dead Man's Chest. I wonder if he wasn't happy the first time, or realized it's potential after King Arthur was produced.

Mr. Zimmer- I'm a big fan of your work. I particularly enjoyed Backdraft. I was wondering if someone could e-mail me back and let me know the name of the song from the retirement reception in the movie. I bought the soundtrack and it is not on there. Thank you very much for your help in this matter.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,

Sir, you are a truly amazing composer and musician. The melodies from all your works, especially the score from pirates of the caribbean 1 2 and 3, has inspired me and millions of other people around the world to "World's End".

Every song in the pirates soundtracks has the same origins to the several original tunes, but you have changed them and added so many additional things. I am ridiculously amazed at your work and you and John Williams have inspired me to be a film composer /performer.

I give you my undying gratitude for changing this world's music and everything in it.

Even though I am sure you do not want everyone emailing you all the time, everyone would appreciate it if you did something like set up an email account just for fans and post it here. It would inspire many more to attempt to do what you have accomplished so well.

My motto of life is : Music has given my life meaning and existence. The least we can do is give back to it.

You have truly given back to music, and for that I thank you.

Sincerely and cordially,

Andrew
An Awe-Inspired Composer

Your reputation is no longer to make, you still enjoy the same.

I have not yet had the opportunity to listen to the entire team in full, but as a general rule your world music fascinates me.

Still very creative and constant. Congratulations to your team.

I just need to listen to the first ten seconds of any song to feel the emotion and the story. I just wish to thank you for all that you have given to this world. Keep up the amazing work!!

I think it's a very good site you made! I check this site all the time to get the latest news for Hans and the Remote Control composers. The only comment I have is about the discographies. Perhaps soundsamples of each track of the soundtracks should be posted:)

Dear Sir Hans Zimmer!
Surely that you never know about me. But it seemed to be that I had loved your works for "Pirates of the Caribbean" since the first time I enjoyed them in the series of these films (Pirates 1,2 and 3).
I listen to those songs day after day! I never feel boring with them
I write this message in order to show my love for your works.
Thank You!
