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.

Hans,

I personally love the At World's End song "Hoist the Colours" the only problem I have with it is that the FULL song is not on the CD, and it can't be found anywhere else. I hate the chain rattling at the end, it takes away from the song. But if I had my way I'd have the FULL song from the movie, where verses 2 and 3 are included, not just verse one.

If you make a special CD that has the full song (or have but haven't released it...) please post the news so I can go buy it!

Other than that, I love your music. Hymn to Red October, You're So Cool, everything basically.

Keep making amazing and powerful music,
-Jeff

Hans,

Your music is by far one of the greatest and most inspirational that I have ever experienced.

I don't know if you can fully comprehend what you have contributed and how much you inspire the planet through your music. I always found myself buying the soundtrack to a few of my favourite movies, it wasn't until 4 months ago that i realised they were written by the same brilliant man - you.

You are truly gifted, and I look forward to experiening more of your inspirational work in the future.

Keep up the amazing work. You will truly go down as one of the greats.

An inspired fan,
Ash

Hans Zimmer, just quite simply blown away by the music.
Beautiful, Beautiful Stuff. I would suggest to otheres to listen to Run Free from 'Spirit', a little know film, but with some beautiful music.
I would like to ask permission to arrange, the opening phrase from that particular piece, for brass band. If anyone has a contact for Hans, or knows who i should get into contact with, please let me know (edwardik2@hotmail.co.uk).
You faithful Fan,

Please use much more French Horn in your compositions. Your music rises to higher levels of emotion upon each useage of this sound, carrying the listener deeper into a heroic feeling and beyond, stretching the emotional limits even further, and isn't this what great score writing is supposed to do?

On a podcast, Hans Zimmer said that he'd love to, 'Take a break from score-writing in 2008, and do some touring... work with the local orchestras...'
Has anyone else heard about this? If so, any ideas on the whereabouts of his tour destinations? =D

Whats up. I never new he did so many soundtracks. Ive fallen in love with his music. They are totally awesome. He should go on tour, with his orcestra/band performing all of his songs that he does, i think it would be a good hit around the world. He has done so many good soundtracks, , my favorite is Pirates of the cariibean, Black hawk down, gladiator, well all of them he did a surperb job. So Hans if you see this go on tour for me. PLEASE!

For a number of years I have been performing ski ballet to Hans Zimmer and Trevor Rabin's music, as well as Klaus BAdelt and others you know.

I am now putting on the web a pre-release of a book entitled
Saphien's Guide to Becoming a Prophet.

I would like to ask permission to use with reference Hans' music, and that of others, if you have access.

Thank you ever so much. Hans is a genius.
