honnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...
I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!
I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the scoreas for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feelingMancina's theme + Ad Astra + MW:2= Bad boys for Life.
Please enlighten me on how Bad Boys 3 sounds the same as Lego Batman or Genius: Picassowhy his music always sound the same...if he doesn't have time why he keep scoring more and more films per year? is it all about money?Modern Warfare 2 is a lot in the album!<br><br>- It's Good Shit Lieatenant<br>- We're Dangerous People<br>- What Else You Got (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- God's Gun (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- We Ride Together, We Die Together (Bad Boys Remix)We're Dangerous PeopleCall of the Wild coming by Hollywood Records, that means, digital.

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

Dear Mr. Zimmer. I recently discovered that a few songs on the magnificent Interstellar: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Album on Spotify has been removed or dissapeared for some reason. The tracks included are "First Step", "No Time For Caution", "Flying Drone" and a few others. What is going on and will they be put back in the album soon? I'm a huge fan of you Hans so it's really killing me to not be able to enjoy your amazing music! I would be very thankful for your answer.

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
George

To Whom It May Concern,

I have directed a short film I want to put on youtube, but it would make the world of difference and make my video amazing if I could possibly speak to somebody about obtaining the rights to the song Waiting For A Train from the Inception soundtrack.

Please excuse me if this is not the correct place to ask as I am not sure the exact procedure. It would be much appreciated that if this is not the correct address to ask this, could you point me in the right direction. I can be contacted at thedav3@gmail.com. Thanks in advance.

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.
