thanks4:05 of "STEALTH" some of the best soulful action music I've heard from a Zimmer score. I wonder who wrote that particular section. This the type of stuff I would play trying to rush a pregnant woman to the hospitalIn case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.<br><br>Job well done, my friend.@Hybrid <br>You don't add anymore Trevor Morris things ?Probably for chronological purposes<br>even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that time
i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene.<br>===============================<br><br><br>I agree. <br><br>And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.<br><br>People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.<br><br>It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...<br><br>It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.<br>===========================<br><br><br>I totally get what you're saying. I also get kinda frustrated when a "big" track overshadows an entire score. The best recent examples are IMO the Transformers scores. I don't blame folks for gravitating towards the epic sound and the power anthems, but A LOT of subtle, equally great tracks end up getting completely ignored. And just like you, they're usually my favorite tracks. <br><br>But why most people don't think like us?<br><br>The reason I think is because those "big tracks" are presented - most of the time - during the most memorable moments in those movies. They immediately get people's attention. They're stuck in their mind along with those iconic images. And I think by nature, people are more attracted to the big and "in your face". For most casual listeners the more subtle tracks work in the context of the movie and they absolutely do notice them while watching the actual film. But unlike you and I they don't feel the need to listen to them separately. They're too busy paying attention to the "big track". That goes even for some score fans.<br><br>While tracks like the Star War theme, the Indy theme, the Transformers theme, the Gladiator theme, the Godfather theme, the Armageddon theme, the Pirates theme, the Lord of the Rings theme are so big, melodic abd easily digestable that folks simply can't resist them. And when there are vocals involved as well (like Gladiator) it's even better, because people treat it as a full-blown song. An emotional song that they can listen to over and over again.<br><br>The subtle tracks simply can't win against that. Sadly....<br><br>By the way, speaking of The Island, My Name is Lincoln (as much as I like it) is not my favorite track of the score. The more subtle opening track (The Island Awaits You) and especially the Lima One Alpha theme are my personal favorite tracks. Of course, they're nowhere near My Name is Lincoln, in terms of popularity.<br>Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?Yeah that is true, can’t argue there lol<br><br>And is it me or does “Calypso Must Be Released” sound like Black Hawk Down?To be fair there is a lot of King Arthur in At World's End too. Just the general feeling you get from the action tracks in both scores is virtually identical. Hell, one of the main themes from King Arthur even appears when Bootstrap Bill remembers that Will is his son.
@MrTweedy<br>That’s totally fine, everyone has their own favorite HZ scores, which is awesome!<br><br>It’s funny though, I feel like DMC is far more schizophrenic than AWE. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love DMC. It’s the score that got me into Hans Zimmer. But still, I feel like a major part of that score is note-for-note reprises of cues/themes from COTBP. Not to mention the temp tracking of King Arthur.<br><br>AWE always felt far more original to me, especially considering that the entire tone of the music shifts from the “rock’n’roll” sound of the first two to a more traditional score (at least by Hans Zimmer standards lol)@MrTweedy<br><br>Just curious, what scores do you considered to be Zimmer's best?The Pinnacle of Hans' career?<br>Although I really like this score, I don't agree. But hey, I know it's just a matter of opinion, okay? ;)<br><br>Of course it shows Hans strengths in almost every area (action, drama, romance, comedy...) but for me it's too much of a medley of previous works, without much personality.<br>It feels a bit like a palette with too many colors. From the action sequences borrowed from Drop Zone, to the Morricone inspirations for Jack's Sequences, to Gladiator's duduk that ended up there with no real reason, to a beautiful Love Theme that brings another new shape to the sonic identity... it's like the score sometimes goes schizophrenic.<br><br>Though each individual idea is really enjoyable to listen to, I think Hans has made scores that are much more cohesive and enjoyable as a whole!i also think it is an underrated score. especially the action music has a couple of nice touches. i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene. the emotional music is nothing ground breaking, but a lovely listen.Y'know, it's funny. The big names that always get the most attention in film music are often not my favorite tracks of the scores they represent. Now We Are Free, Arrival to Earth, Like A Dog Chasing Cars, Star Wars Main Theme, Indiana Jones Main Theme, Infinite White, One Day, Circle of Life, The Fellowship. Though they are the most well known, they're usually nowhere near the peak of quality of their scores. <br><br><br>I noticed this the most in Hans Zimmer's concerts (not World of Hans Zimmer mind you). The parts he played from The Dark Knight Trilogy in particular usually had the least substance. Just the bombastic tracks. The only choice I agreed with was Time from Inception. There was no Am I Not Merciful, A Watchful Guardian, Sunrise Over Pride Rock, none of that. <br><br><br>Even with Star Wars, the main theme and the Force theme are solid pieces of music, but neither come close to the beauty of Princess Leia's theme, or the wondrous Yoda theme. <br><br><br>Same with Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship Reunited, Very Old Friends, Gollum, and The Breaking of the Fellowship are much more substantial pieces than The Fellowship Theme alone in my opinion. <br><br><br>Can't say anything about My Name is Lincoln because I haven't finished The Island score yet, but yeah. I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.
Thanks guys, will check out these cues.Hmm, aside from "The Guardian Suite' I don't think I've heard any other tracks from this score. And I have a feeling I'm not the only one....lol.<br><br>Speaking of.........I would most definitely put "The Guardian Suite' right up there next to "Now We Are Free" and "My Name is Lincoln". It's *that* good and powerful. Shame that the movie is not as popular as The Island and Gladiator. If it was, that suite would've been one of the most popular film score tracks with millions of views on YouTube. It certainly deserves it.Very underrated score. As already pointed out by a couple of reviewers, it's a nice, little throwback to MV/RC's Golden Years and Trevor's own scores from 1997 to 2002. Give it a listen if you can. It's not long and it's worth it.The action cue "Escape" is easily one of my favorite from Powell. And the final cue for the scene right before the ending is absolutely beautiful. Face/Off is actually my favorite Powell score I think.If we're talking about the complete score, then<br><br>The Merry-Go-Round of Life<br>Airport Chase<br>Escape<br>Mikey's Grave<br>Boat Chase<br>Homecoming<br><br>is a good sampler of the absolute highlights to get you started. "Homecoming" (called "Ready for the Big Ride, Bubba" on the album release even though a different cue has that name on the complete score) is actually a really beautiful cue, one of my favorites from Powell.

So sad..
I created a great (Dutch) ChristmasWish with MovieMaker for my friends. Because I love the movie (and soundtrack) "the Holiday" so much I used it to go with my Wish. Wanted to send it to my FBfriends, but got deleted within a few minutes.
It had nothing to do with copying, it should be seen as a compliment. Stupid Copyright.. :(

Bought tickets off worldticketshop.com for the Paris show. Can someone please put my mind at ease and assure me they are legit! I know I may be panicking for no reason but these are a Christmas present for someone very special, and a trip to Paris as well. Anyone outside of France get Paris tickets yet?

Dear mr Hans Zimmer,

After buying a ticket for your show I just drove 10 hours to be at your concert in Wroclaw.
To my surprise you weren't there. This is a bit confusing since your name is printed clearly and large on the ticket so I would expect you you to be there.

Could you please explain?

Sincere a disappointed fan.

If you go to "unofficial" concerts it's your problem, you should have checked that before... Many orhcestras organize concerts and play music from well-known composers, it doesn't mean the composer has to be there. Most of the time I guess the composer is not even aware of this concert.

Film music makes a vivid impression on me. Just about my favourite film is Gladiator and I find the music very emotional and uplifting... particularly 'earth' and the first battle/final amphitheatre fight scene at the end. Could I raise a possible plagarism issue here ? While on a clipper ship cruise, the ships sails were raised to music that I assumed was part of Gladiator - but which I subsequently found was Vangelis soundtrack to a film Conquest of Paradise 1492. Listening to both in paralle, it is apparent as a keen musician, that both sound very similar - only difference is that Vangelis theme starts in minor key and moves to major while Gladiator starts in the major key - but the main tune sounds so similar...... but Gladiator came first. Anyone else notice this ? If so should the Vangelis version be considered as plagarism ??


billy2015-11-12 14:31:05
I think Vangelis' theme came fisrt, in 1992, while Gladiator was in 2000. They look similar indeed, but only in the beginning. In my opinion it's not a plagiarism, as the two melodies evolve differently, I would call it just an "inspiration" for Glaiator's theme,something that happens quite often, especially in film composing. Notice, also, that Vangelis has inspired Zimmer a lot ;-)


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-12 15:48:16
I think that bastard Holst stole something from Gladiator too. And don't get me started on that hack Richard Wagner. Man, Gladiator sure is a popular source of inspiration!

;)


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-13 15:08:57
Yes, I'm a troll.


Wagnerian2015-11-14 15:35:55
Zimmers music is full of plagiarisms. Listen to Crimson Tide soundtrack and then to the Sigfried theme in Wagners ring... Come on! Really?


Wagnerian2015-11-14 15:43:26
OK "Plagiarism" is too strong a word - let's call it "inspiration". Zimmers music is great but it would be even greater to acknowledge the inspirations. Howard Shore admitted to the Rheingold Leitmotifs being a great inspiration for his amazing LOTR soundtrack...

Ich hab tausende Lieder, ohne die ich nicht leben könnte. Die Spitze führt schon seit über 20 Jahren Russ Ballard mit "on the rebound" an. Wobei ich das auch nicht als absolutes Lieblingslied titulieren könnte, da mir eben soooooo viele Andere auch gefallen. Wenn ich aber Hans Zimmer`s "Chevalier des Sangreal" höre, laufen mir jedes mal die Tränen. Einfach vor Freude und Ehrfurcht, dass Jemand so ein perfektes Lied komponiert hat. Gänsehaut von den Haarspitzen bis zum kleinen Zeh. Selbst wenn ich es 10mal hintereinander anhöre. Wer so einen Effekt bei einem anderen Menschen mit nur einem Lied erzeugen kann, ist für mich der Grösste. Danke Hans, wenn ich an einen guten Gott glauben würde, dann wüsste ich, dass Du es bist.

Geschätzter Herr Hans Zimmer!

Sie und ich teilen uns nicht nur das gleiche Geburtsjahr und -land, sondern auch die Liebe zur Musik, im Besonderen den Soundtrack.

Da ich im nördlichsten Mittelgebirge Deutschlands, dem Harz, einige Ferienwohnungen betreibe, stelle ich auch eine Reihe von informativen Dokumentarfilmen her. Die letzte Produktion ist ein Portraits der UNESCO-Welterbestadt Quedlinburg mit dem Titel "Quedlinburg - Wiege Deutschlands".
Quedlinburgs Bürgermeister Eberhard Brecht begründete die Entscheidung für den Slogan "Wiege Deutschlands" mit der Rolle der Stadt zur Ottonenzeit im 10. und 11. Jahrhundert, als viele Reichstage hier stattfanden und damit der Ort der Mittelpunkt des Deutschen Reiches war. Für diese, wie ich denke, beeindruckende Doku dieser beeindruckenden Stadt habe ich keine bessere und passendere Begleitmusik gefunden als die genialen Melodien aus Madagascar 2 und 3. Es würde wirklich ein Unterschied zwischen Tag und Nacht ergeben, wenn ich freundlicher Weise diese legal erworbenen Kunstwerke in meinem Dokumentarfilm "Quedlinburg - Wiege Deutschlands" verwenden dürfte, um auf unserer Website www.feriendomizil-badharzburg.de interessierten Urlaubern zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Mit der herzlichen Bitte um Verwendung o.g. Melodien unter ausdrücklicher Namensnennung des genialen Composers verbleibe ich mit

Harzlichen Grüßen
Horst Eidel

Dear Mr. Zimmer,

I just want to say 'thank you' for the incredible soundtrack to "Interstellar", especially "Dust", which lets me feel the deep space and make me thoughtful about everything. It is also a very good music for programming. I know you hear this very often and from everyone. But there is no reason why I shouldn't tell you also that you are awesome! Thanks for so many years of great music!

Dear Mr. Zimmer, My little sister is watching a TV series Called "The Hamama" which is using your pieces (Dark knight, Intersteller..), No credit is given to your name which makes me believe it is stolen.

It is hosted in Israel, The creator of the series Is Giora Hamizer, And the so called "music composer" is Tal Yardeni.

Sorry for the bad English, just wanted to let you know about the situation. It is a very popular Teen's show here.

Thanks for reading

Mr. Zimmer,

I am writing this to you because a friend of ours who lives with my wife and I is a huge fan of yours. Because of you he is trying to get into the Carnegie School of Music in Pittsburgh, Pa. If there is any way you can send him not only some advice but words of encouragement. It would be much appreciated. He has a couple of disabilities he works with to include Turrets and aspergers syndrome. But he is determined to not only graduate school but to be able to create works as well as you do. He has written some works and he has had very little formal training but your words would help to inspire him.

Thank You

Though I would much prefer to ask the composer himself, that option seems to be unavailable, so I shall ask the community of fans instead. In the song "Deliver Us" from The Prince of Egypt, around 5 minutes in, is a solo. The instrument that plays that solo sounds like a flute crossed with a recorder, and I would like to know what that instrument is. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
