Most of the album is comprised of suites, with one consistent tempo per track. <br><br>The material that was scored to picture was scored using the risset rhythm technique, which gave a lot of those tracks their "infinitely getting faster" feeling in the film, so the tempo is always climbing in the film versions. The suites have a stable tempo (except for a couple normal tempo changes, which are different)Not really any... "Nothing Out There" contains the sad piano theme from Begins and Dark Knight, but otherwise the themes that get reprised are pretty much Hans stuff. <br><br>Speaking of credits, any chance the complete score page could be updated with what's out there and official?Could somebody tell me in what cues JNH's themes appear on album?Thanks MIKE, Any ideas of how can I Google it?Yeah, that cue was either a last minute rewrite or one of the music editors did it.... As for where you can find it...Google is your friend. But it's not going to be available anywhere officially.
I think it will be in between NOT ORDINARY CITIZEN / THE SLOW KNIFE and IMAGINE THE FIRE, Does anybody know where can I find it?<br>I noticed that this score doesn't has the soundtrack of the part where Blake is taking the people to the bridge and he is discusing with the other police officer before he blows the bridgeThat's right, I forgot about that... And I totally agree about the score vs. the album. I had no use for this score on album at first, but now that I've watched the movie a few times, I can really hear the logic behind the score and I "get it." <br><br>I still don't get the music as heard on album, though. Are the longer pieces some early suites Hans wrote? Or did he specifically make these arrangements for the album? Do you know the answer to that one, Hybrid?I wanna say I heard the full Cat Suite somewhere... I can't remember if it was legit, but it was 15:39 and it was indeed quite repetitive. It was basically the Selina Kyle Suite from the Z+ app, along with demos of several of the Catwoman-related cues in the final score. If you've listened through the score, you've basically heard the unreleased stuff.@Mike<br>Zimmer has said in interviews that he “mapped out” the film with one long piece of music to establish the changing tempo of the story, and apparently the script was written to capture the rhythmic feel of the film. So from the very beginning the story was always split up between the three.<br><br>I think a big part of the initial disappointment with the score was the album presentation, which gives off the impression that the music is just some sound design that Zimmer threw together (this is how I personally felt when I first gave it a listen). In actuality it’s a technically impressive score, I really can’t think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a film’s tempo and flows as one long piece of music. Apparently it was a nightmare for Hans, especially when the smallest edits to the film would ruin the flow.<br><br>Doing the 59-minute album was a pretty big disservice to the whole purpose of the music. If you remove one piece the whole thing falls apart, which is part of the reason the album feels so disjointed.
Anyone here listened "The Predator" FYC score? <br>Any chance to compare tracklist and running time with official release?These versions suites haven't been officially released, but maybe you can find them somewhere around the Internet unofficially.<br><br>As for the Cat Suite, the most important parts of it can be found in "Selina Kyle" (it's a shortened version of it actually) and "Mind if I cut in?" from the OST. I remember that Hybrid once said that the 15mins Cat Suite was too repetitive, that's why a 5min only version was released, so maybe you are just fine with those two.<br>Where can I listen to the Cat Suite? Or is it literally: Selina Kyle Theme? <br>The Mole P1 (0-1:57)<br>Regimental Brothers P1 (0-1:19)<br>The Mole P2 (1:57-3:44)<br>Regimental Brothers P3 (2:44 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier<br>Supermarine P1 (0-2:47)<br>The Mole P3 (3:45 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back (again) <br>Supermarine P2 (*5:33)<br>Impulse<br>The Tide<br>Home <br>The Oil <br>Variation 15<br>End Credits <br><br>As everyone said already, the album is made up of suites that combine several cues and several "sounds" used in various places. For example, the is a sound in The Mole (At 2:05) that sounds like a fuse being ignited. This sound is actually right after The Tide in the film.<br>The only tracks that are almost identical to the film are: The Tide, Variation 15 and End Credits, the rest is different. <br><br>So if you were to order the tracks as first heard in the film it would be: <br>The Mole <br>Regimental Brothers <br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier <br>Supermarine <br>Impluse <br>The Tide <br>Home <br>The Oil<br>Variation 15<br>End credits<br><br>As much as I enjoyed listening to this release, I wish they didn't butcher the score the way they did. I like the suites but there are so many great cues in this film that weren't released. If only they released an isolated score track on Blu-ray. Listening to film extracts is just not enough.I noticed that as well — the ticking goes all through the movie, except for the boat scenes, and only stops when they get on the train. <br><br>I wonder...could the film have originally been shot so that the beach, sea, and air sequences were there own arcs, and the longer album tracks were written for that? And then Nolan went in and turned the movie into the frenetic, constantly cutting-back-and-forth final product? <br><br>While the album is fine, I personally don't understand why we couldn't have just gotten the film cues. They might have had to stitch several together for each track, but it could have worked.
Does anyone know where you can get a digital version of the Japanese versions 2 bonus tracks?Comparing it to YFM’s sfx edit this is what I’ve got;<br><br>“The Mole” seems to be an alternate of the opening sequence. The first minute or so is used, while the rest isn’t. “We Need Our Army Back/Regimental Brothers” are both made up of several cues from different points in the film. <br>“Home” is completely different in the film, which makes me think it may have been recorded specifically for the album. Similar situation with “Oil”. <br>“Supermarine” is definitely a suite. The rest is chronological.<br><br>Interesting thing to note, it seems like a lot of the tempo changes/ticking effects/bass overlays were removed from the album release, making almost every track sound different from the actual film versions. The music in context has a constant pulse going, especially in the way cues segue into each other and change tempo.It's not really possible to chronologically order the album because the album doesn't use the same tracks as the movie. Plus, the album is more or less chronological anyway, given the areas where they are the same.<br>With the complete cue sheet out now.

Recently I've composed and I've recorded a strange mix which envolves music to tell a piece of history (just like a soundtrack)
I wonder if you would listen something about this little project.

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!

Mr. Zimmer, would you possibly be the son of Wilhelm Zimmer who moved to charlotte, N..C. tp build Zimmer pipe organs.

Willhilm had two sons, Hans and Jens. I recently contacted Zimmer Organ Co. because our church bought a pipe organ and my father bought a pipe organ for my mother to us in their home.

My Parents Joe and Lib Talley were special friends of Wilhelm and his wife and kept up
with them until their deaths.

Your music is wonderful and I love it all. I was just wondering if you were the same Hans Zimmer who worked on my mothers new pipe organ back then with his father.

Thank you for all your talents and please respond

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).

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
