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',I do kinda prefer the 2014 score over the KOTM score, but McCreary's work does deserve more love than just being called a 'retreat of the original theme'.<br>It also deserved to be heard more, but the movie's sound mixing was terrible.Wasn't expecting to see someone else here for the same reason. Really hoping those two soundtracks return, they're great for studying music.
Are Steve Jablonsky and Rupert Greyson-Williams still apart of RCP or they went solo too?I wouldn't disagree that Godzilla KOTM is a good score since it works very well for the movie and by itself. I'm just saying that Junkie XL can bring something new and interesting to the franchise which hasn't been done before.Before someone jump, i will said in this kind of movies, change a composer is very common, don't say i don't want McCreary will be back, only i prefer other people try other things.<br><br>Like i said, i listen very OFTEN the three scores in this movies, and i love each style (as for the movies... well, prefer G14 and KSI over KOTM)@Moggyman<br><br>If you think that all McCreary did was modernize the Godzilla theme, you clearly haven't listend to the score.<br>He indeed used and modernized the themes for Godzilla & Mothra.<br>Besides that he wrote new themes for Rodan, Ghidorah, Monarch, The Russel Family and a theme he called the Ancient theme.<br><br>Besides this, he used the orchestra, choir, soloist and specialty instruments in the best way they can be used.<br><br>His score was one of the best blockbuster and orchestral scores of the last couple of years, in my opinion.<br><br>Until I hear Holkenborg's score I can't really comment on if it will be good. But at the moment I am sad McCreary isn't coming back. But I am very curious what Holkenborg will doI disagree, the McCreary's score in that movie is really, really good... but I put this, as myself i listen very often the other two: G14 and Skull Island, also really, really good, can't put a score over another because one composer uses a theme (a very mytical one, if you are a movie monster fan), specially in that franchise.<br><br>Yes, Ifukube create a wonderful theme (and the original movie have a really tough score to listen isolated of the movie), but other composer make a wonderful themes (and polaraising), like Otani (which his score for GMK is FULL electronic, but really good) or Oshima (great theme, maybe the inspiration for Desplat's theme), even the most forgotten Reijiro Koroku create a terrific theme for the character in 1984
Bear McCreary is a good composer but all he did for Godzilla KOTM was modernize the original Godzilla theme, which isnt super creative. Junkie, on the other hand, may give us a really creative score based on his eagerness to do the project.Yeah besides the massive disappointment that is the movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the even bigger disappointment is that Bear McCreary won't be back for more.you fool.... its impossible ! everybody knows that there is only one batman theme.... (joke)In a recent interview, Junkie mentioned that he's bringing back themes for Superman and Wonder Woman, while everything else is new. I wonder if he's gonna make a new Batman theme.It's true, there is completely different team from composer to director in crossover :)

I just wanted to pass along how much I enjoy Hans' music, as well as the website. It's a wealth of information for his fans, and it's also nice that there are profiles on some of the key musicians who Hans collaborates with as well.

One artist in particular, guitar virtuoso PETE HAYCOCK, has always been a favorite player of mine, and I applaud Mr. Zimmer for his great taste and judgment in choosing Mr. Haycock to add his considerable guitar talents to the several soundtracks they've worked on together. It was also great to hear many of these artists perform LIVE with Hans for the "Wings of a Film" concert; a lovely sampling of his great soundtrack work.

I was fortunate and blessed to have Pete Haycock provide all of the music for a documentary featurette I made recently about the Hollister Independence Rally, an annual motorcycle rally that has attracted more than 120,000 people to this small central California town for a 3-day celebration of "The Birthplace of the American Biker". The DVD is entitled "HOLLISTER 2005 -- THE OFFICIAL RALLY DVD", and Pete's music really raised the bar for the visuals to aspire to match. The DVD helps raise donations for a local Hollister-based shelter for abused women and children, and we were indeed grateful to Pete for his kind involvement.

Equally cool was the fact that this DVD project inspired Pete to go back to the studio and extend some tracks -- and add some others -- which resulted in his amazing recently-released 13-track CD entitled "BIKERS' DOZEN"!

For those of you who have enjoyed Hans' scores for "Drop Zone", "K-2", and "Thelma & Louise", among others, you'll likely recognize the sounds of Pete Haycock's magic fingers working the fretboards on several tracks. If you like that (and who doesn't?), then you should check out "BIKERS' DOZEN" -- it's a dynamic collection of some of the best guitar-driven compositions out there, and a must for any fan!

For more information about the Hollister Rally DVD, you can go to the Pelicam website at:
http://www.PelicamProductions.com

And, for more information or to order Pete's "BIKERS' DOZEN" CD, you can go to his official website at:

Thanks again, Hans, for all of the amazing soundtracks you've produced -- and that we've enjoyed -- over the years! Keep up the stellar work!

Best regards,

-- Jeff Byler

People don't waste your time on buying the Da Vinci Soundtrack. It is terrible. One of Hans worst. Very boring and had no theme to it. The only good song was #14 which wasn't by Hans. I will wait for the pirates soundtrack to come out before i give up hope on Hans.

Is e-mail for new information out of use ?
I could not find it in your site. So, I wrote here.

I found interviews.

Mark Mancina interview ( Japanese )
http://anime.excite.co.jp/blood/iv/iv_mark.html

He came to Japan for promotion ( Blood+ soundtrack ).
This soundtrack have a good reputation in Japan.
CD shops often pick up this CD by composer's name ( Hans Zimmer and Mark Mancina ).
It is rare in Japan.
I wish many Japanese know RC's music by this CD.
Regrettably many Japanese people don't care almost about soundtracks.
They don't even know composer's name.

Truly loved the score, we purchased the DVD & "standard" OST CD! (it unfortunately leaves out alot of the songs & incidental music we really wanted to hear from several artists - Badly Drawn Boy, Maroon 5, Charles Trenet, you, etc - why was that?) Any plans for a "complete" expanded release of the OST?

Would love to get our hands on the expanded version, if at all possible. Please email responses to: ursammg@optonline.net.

Keep up the great work!!!

Dear HZTeam, The Team of RC Prods has been a great inspiration to me. As a composer myself, RC Prods has motivated me in many ways. The music the team has created has been very close to my heart since a young age. Hans Zimmer of course is a hero and role model to me. His music comes from his heart and thats what i admire. I have been composing since i was young on the piano. RC Prods has motivated me to learn the tech part of music. The RC team has shown me that through music production, composing music can expand and mold into different cultures, styles, colors..... I am currently in process of getting a personal production studio so that i may take my music to the next level. Your music has influenced and touched me greatly. Thank you RC Prods Team!

I am beside myself now that I have found this web site. I was listening to The Last Samurai soundtrack and I was wondering why I was so mesmerised and satisfied by its hypnotic content. I decided to surf the web in search of anything Hans Zimmer, low and behold I came across Remote Control Productions. Now I know that all the music I was fasinated with like Gladiator, Hannibal, The Lion King, The Last Emporer, Prince of Egypt all came from the genius of Mr. Zimmer. As an amateur composer, I draw intense emotional inspiration from his works. From one Virgo to another, Thanks for the enjoyment!!!

Who the hell is Yoshiki????

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-05 00:00:00
Yoshiki is one of the greatest composers and and musicians of the probably the past 20 years. He created a social phenomenon with his break all the rules hard rock band 'X Japan'. Since then he's produced many original artists in both asia and the US and Europe.

He was asked to compose and play a song on the KISS tribute album. He's also received many honours in Japan such as writing and performing a song for the Emporer's 10th anniversary and more recently the 2005 Aichi World Expo theme song.

He is now perparing to unleash his talent on the world music market with his long time in recording "--VIOLET UK"--. A project more ambitious than Axel Roses Chinese Democracy album.

You will hear and see more of this man very soon~ so stay tuned
