Sadly, he doesn't seem to say anything new besides the background information on the Zimmer and Harry Gregson scores he's worked on. Plus the Skyscraper information still doesn't excuse the generic committee product that score turned out to be.Does anyone know what songs Max Aruj and Steffen Thum have worked on?Though there are differences, I think HZ & NGS styles mix together rather well.<br><br>Tracks like "Fort Walton", "Goodspeed Tracks Jade" or "Jade" are exceptions for sure. Apart from these, most tracks blend very well, imo.<br>It's very different from Armageddon for exemple, when team Trevor and team Harry had very different styles (big anthems & guitars VS darker material and more subtle theme developments) and also different sound equipments (I can tell immediately who did what thanks to the sound banks they used). The Rock doesn't suffer from those extreme differences imo.<br><br>We fans here listened to those scores for over 20 years and we've learnt how to spot each composer (thanks to this website and all the infos on each track we got over the years). I'm not sure I could have noticed all those details back in 1996, or even 10 years ago.<br><br>Nonetheless, The Rock is one of the greatest action scores ever. While more coherent scores like Crimson Tide or The Fan grew on me over the years, The Rock keeps a very special place in my heart.yes i hope 2 cd!!!!Hi, <br>Ever paid tribute to Gorecki?<br>I think you should<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Mjt Sprengers
The only way I won't be able to the listen to it before the episode is if it will be released in Germany in the night to tuesday. But I don't know how I would find that.Does someone know something about the soundtrack already? Like how many songs there will be or maybe even the full track list? Or will it be a big surprise?I will, Backbiter, because I live in Germany and in my country the final episode will be released on monday. I will watch it with my friends and therefore we will watch it around 8pm in my time. If the soundtrack will be released in the night from sunday to monday, I will be able to listen to the soundtrack before I watch the final episode.Yasss<br><br>Please be 2 discsThis is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.<br><br>Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?
Very interesting interview. Thanks man!Judging by the YouTube views, not a lot of people have listened to this 1-hour chat with Steve. So I'm posting it here for you folks to enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR0TPYmidNYI have nothing against any of the composers who worked on The Rock, but to my ears, the Nick Glennie-Smith stuff sounds obviously different from the Hans Zimmer stuff, and they both sound very different from the Harry Gregson-Williams stuff. And the transitions are a tad jarring at times. I've never seen anyone else post this opinion before, though, so I may be the only one!<br>=====================<br><br><br>That's actually very interesting. Never thought of it that way. And you're right. For those who are well aware of the overall MV/RC sound, there is indeed a difference between the Zimmer style and the Glennie-Smith style. However, I think that the two styles blend pretty well in The Rock. The movie itself allows for that. So I would argue that, while watching the actual movie, the two styles work very well together and they complement each other. <br><br>But listening to the score alone, yes, I can definitely see where you're coming from. The differences are obvious. Having said that, I still consider it to be a masterpiece of action scoring. And not only action. The emotional bits are great too. JADE is an extremely beautiful and tender track :))<br><br>P.S. The Peacemaker is on my personal TOP 5 of the greatest action scores of all time. I can't believe the score is not as popular as The Rock. Same for Eraser, by the way. Watch the movie again on a good sound system and you'll be blown away by the awesome Silvestri score. I really wish those two scores were more popular with the public......The 90s had some of the greatest action movie scores ever<br>================================<br><br>Without a doubt. I grew up in the 90s and I was there for all of it. Truly one of the best decades for film music (and for cinema in general). I mean, it's the decade that changed action scores forever. Exactly because of scores like The Rock, Twister, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Granted, Harold Faltermeyer kinda started it all in the mid-80s with his work on Top Gun, Tango and Cash and Beverly Hills Cop 2, but it was Hans and his team who really got the ball rolling. By the way, I'm super happy that Hans and Faltermeyer are teaming up for Top Gun 2. At least according to IMDb....<br><br><br>==================<br>The opening theme is probably Zimmer's best in the genre<br>==================<br><br>Agreed. It's the ultimate Zimmer power anthem. I know the younger generation knows Hans mainly from his work on comicbook movies like Batman and Spider Man, but for me, 90's Zimmer will always be the best Zimmer. And my favorite Zimmer :))I'm so excited hear that.
No you won't, the score will be released after the final episode.Yesssssssssss yessss yesCan't wait for this soundtrack.<br>Just a few days left.Oh. My. Gods. (The old ones and the new.) That's so good news. And I can't wait for sunday.<br><br>The best is, that I can here the soundtrack before I watch the final episode. And I like to hear to a score without knowing wich music belongs to what kind of scene.Yesss. Can't wait!

Hello Mr. Zimmer,

i saw your great concert in Oberhausen. But we had bad places at the side of the stage and we have not seen very much of the light show and many musicians.

So there will be a Live DVD of one concert? PLEASE. This would be so amazing.

Greetings from Frankfurt

Lieber Hans Zimmer,
vielen Danke für dieses wunderschöne Konzert in Berlin. Ich bin so begeistert, ich kann es nicht so richtig in Worte fassen. Danke und hoffentlich auf ein Wiedersehen

I read what you recently had to say about how difficult it was to do the music for "Batman vs. Superman", and how you won't do any more 'superhero' scores.

While I haven't the vaguest conception of how difficult it must be to compose new music, I wanted to say that I was very impressed with your new theme for Wonder Woman, and if you were to do a full score based on that theme alone, I would gladly pay $20 for it.

Regardless, I have been a huge fan for years and will continue to look forward to anything new that you do.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,

I was in Hamburg yesterday to attend your concert.
I've been hoping this was going to get great, but I did not expect THAT!!
It just blew me away.
From the first second to the last note: Fantastic, mindblowing, magic - just perfect!
Also your words about Heath Leadger and Aurora - GREATNESS!
A huge Thank You to You and all the musicians for this unforgettable night
YOU HAVE TO RECORD A LIVE DVD... I promise I'd buy at least 10. One for me and 9 for the coming birthdays of friends...

Thank you and again thank you,
Matthias

Dear Mister Zimmer,

Last Thursday, I was at Palais 12 in Brussels for your Live Tour and I wanted to thank you and your team for this incredible, unforgettable performance. I have memories forever !

but beyond that, I would like to thank you so much for your heart-warming words on "Aurora" theme.

You showed that you are not only an wonderful music genius, but also a very, very beautiful human being and it makes me admire you even more for that.

Thank you for this heart-warming moment of grace,

Solene

Hans, I absolutely loved your performance in Brussels, Palais 12.

I REALLY HOPE you will release an audio CD or even video of a recording of one of the Hans Zimmer Live on Tour 2016 performances!!!!!!!!

Mr. Zimmer I'm really impressed by your musical compositions. Hopefully someday could compose a melody for the story of my book "El Precio de la Suerte" (The Price of Luck). Just my dream : )

Hello Hans,

Pretty sure you won't really read this because you get so many messages, but I'll give it a try anyway! I'll be coming to your concert on the 24th of May in Rotterdam (in the Netherlands, my home country). And it would just mean the world to me if you'd perform ''Now We Are Free'' from Gladiator that night, because it's kind of my life's anthem, haha. I know you probably have a strict regime and order of songs you use in your concerts (and maybe this song is already in it), but I just wanted to give this a shot because it's the most beautiful song ever and I'd love to hear it live.

Thanks!

Hi Maia,

I went to his concert in Brussels yesterday, and you won't be dissapointed ;-)

Hans Zimmer,

YOU HAVE TO READ THIS. First of all your music and soundtracks for the large amounts of movies you cooperated with are masterpieces, especially in Batman V Superman. But this is a suggestion. AS AN HOMAGE TO THE DCAU, JUSTICE LEAGUE , JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED, CAN YOU PLEASE REMAKE VERSIONS OF THE THEME SONGS OF THE TWO SHOWS AND USE THE THE FIRST THEME FOR PART 1 AND USE THE UNLIMITED THEME FOR PART 2. This will bring out the glory of this legendary group of superheroes and the tv show which once was home to them. Seriously, please do this.

Reply or not, please do consider this!
Thanks!

Mr. Zimmer,
greetings from Portugal.

First of all and as you may imagine already, I am a huge fan.

I have a question which I think all of your fans that never have seen a live concert yours already made, but I would like to ask you, when / if there is some thought to come to my country or Spain in a short time.

For sure there are many fans as me asking the same all around our country.

Will apreciate your answer.
Thanks

Dear Zimmer,
First of all, I am an ordinary person. I've interested theater but not professinal. I love your music. If you can allow, I would like to use "Drink up me hearties" and "Mombasa" and "Good Authority" music for the street theater play. It's including genres satire and dramatic. It is free. Open for everyone
I wait your answer.
Sincerely

Didier reply Replies: 4 || 2016-02-02 19:05:27
Mr.Zimmer, I love your music. Particularly the themes of Pirates of the Caribbean. My favorites are Blackbeard's theme and Jack Sparrow's theme. They give me goose bumps every time I hear them, and believe me... I don't easily get goose bumps. I tip my hat to you! You are a musical genius!
Greetings from Belgium!


Edmund Meinerts2016-02-02 22:59:04
Blackbeard's theme over Davy Jones or the love theme from At World's End?


Didier2016-03-22 16:06:45
@Edmund: Blackbeard's sounds more epic. Though Davy Jones' theme is wonderful as well.


Edmund Meinerts2016-03-22 22:22:32
No way! Blackbeard's theme is...okay, I guess, but it's just a typical descending POTC-ish motif. Davy Jones' theme is SO MUCH more versatile and three-dimensional as a villain idea - it can be tragic, angry, brooding and, yes, epic.


Byron Sleugh2016-04-10 04:42:25
I love Davy Jones' theme. I did an arrangement of it for trombone choir because I thought it was pretty awesome.

Their war here-
Thank you hans zimmer and junkie xl (Tom) for creating another incredible soundtrack.
The only thing missing is that the soundtrack version of
their war here is different to the move version, and doesn't have the man of steel elements with that dang dang daga da daga science fiction sound when the world machine is destroying metropolis and batman comes to the rescue.
That was my favorite part of the Man of steel soundtrack and its such a same it's included in the opening of the film, but that a different version is on the soundtrack.
But otherwise an amazing epic soundtrack.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
as an ambitious amateur composer from Germany and real fan of your soundtracks I'm looking forward to your concert in Munich at April the 26th.
I just composed a short orchestral version from "Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing On Rainbows" and I wish I had an orchestra like yours. But for me a midi orchestration must be enough. Here my work:

I have a question, will the music of the Tv series "Through the Wormhole" ever be released in some shape or form(especially from season 2)?
That music is just perfect, it gives me goose bumps and brings tears to my eyes. Best music i've ever heard for sure!
