Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!
It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).
John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)Hubris: Choral Works by John Powell is now available to stream worldwide on all digital platforms! &#128526;<br><br>Also available to download in 192k/24bit high-resolution from johnpowellmusic .com<br>CDs on https ://bit.ly/2lcQ5Ig :) and coming soon to Amazon and other retailers!<br><br>Thank you, everyone, who was a part of this record!<br>Enjoy &#127926;&#127930;Mega cool :) Wann wird dieser Remix released? :)This would be really nice that as the release is only available for download, we had the choice to download it in a better quality than the CD itself. We have no material piece in the  hands, at least we would like to have such a contentment. I do have no action in Qobuz, but that should be a mandatory place for a download only music, for music lovers who like pure instrumental music. ;)<br>I'll be waiting for it !This album is absolutley wonderful!. I loved every second of it. I adore choirs in film music and an album like this is a very welcome treat!<br><br>Great job, Mr. Powell<br>10/10
Absolutely delightful score. Loved it.Where can we buy this "complete score"?What a wonderful soundtrack, I can not stop listening either. When I get home after work, Interstellar is the best soundtrack to listen to in the quiet of dawn. It's to get in touch with the Cosmos. Congratulations Hans Zimmer.from like.....4 years ago?I’m surprised nobody is talking about the expanded score that has leaked...!

Is there any information yet, if RCP is going to do the Warcraft movie? Release date is currently March 2016.


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-13 22:41:03
I don't see why it would be RCP. Duncan Jones has worked with Clint Mansell and Chris Bacon before; the latter's score for Source Code is actually quite good, and it would be pretty cool if he got the gig. I'd also be more than happy to see one or more composers from Blizzard's team do the movie as well; maybe not five or six of them like there is on the games, but say Russell Brower and maybe one other guy. That would be cool.


Zimson2014-05-14 08:16:00
This movie will be fundamentally different from Moon and Source Code, so it wouldn't surprise me, if they also hire a new composer. I'm fairly sure that the WoW-composers or at least Russel Brower will be somehow involved, but since they never scored such a big-budget movie it's unlikely that they will do it alone.

When do you think will they announce the composer(s)?


trent easton navarro2014-05-14 14:32:02
Still no reason why it should be a RCP composer. There are other composers you know :P

As for the announcement, it varies per film. Still waiting to find out who will score Ridley Scott's Exodus and Michael Mann's Cyber (although that one is rumored to be scores by Atticus Ross or someone from RCP)


Saurabh2014-05-14 17:59:35
I'd love if Harry Gregson Williams reunited with Ridley for Exodus. His work on Kingdom of Heaven was very rich and in my opinion a masterpiece. Correct me if I'm wrong but it didn't go down well with Harry as his music was replaced by other works to some extent. Scott's recent partnership with Streitenfeld is uneven and sub par considering the scores to his previous films like KOH, Gladiator, Matchstick Men, etc.


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-14 18:57:52
Alberto Iglesias will score Exodus... For tax reason... lol


trent easton navarro2014-05-14 21:45:15
Really, Iglesias? That would be a very unusual choice, even for tax reasons. Also any idea than who'll score Cyber?


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-14 22:12:31
That same tax reason is why Lucas Vidal scored the most recent Fast and Furious movie, or why Federico Jusid was originally going to do 300: Rise of an Empire...there's some law that makes it much cheaper for movies shot in Spain to use as many Spanish crew members as possible. I'm guessing this is something similar.

Very interesting and weird pick though. Iglesias is a pretty low-key and experimental type of composer, which strikes me kind of as the exact opposite of what you would want for a big biblical movie like this. Not sure what to think. :|


Saurabh2014-05-14 22:17:28
Has Iglesias done something as big as Exodus previously?


0-cool2014-06-26 10:41:03
unusual choice but I think he'll do great, unless Scott butchers it.

MacArthur2013-09-26 21:16:41
The Guy Below Said that he did the trailer music. and I didn't know that


MacArthur2013-09-26 21:29:54
Mike real quick do you know if there is a way for the songs on the TDKR app to be transferred to mp3. or has it been do cause if that's the case then technically you could have the whole TDKR score.


Mike2013-09-27 01:15:27
If I knew of a way, I'd have those suites by now...lol


Anonymous2013-09-27 01:53:19
You can simply play them whilst running a lead from your iPhone headphone socket to the line-in on your sound card and recording the input signal. Quite simple.


MacArthur2013-09-27 03:13:09
well I know that but the recordings aren't that good I want it to sound like the actual soundtrack recordings.


Anonymous2013-09-27 05:18:11
Then hack into RCP and get the music. There is no way you can make music like this sounds like album masters from a studio!


MacArthur2013-09-27 05:55:14
No I'm talking the tracks, and asking if it is possible to turn them into mp3. Cause in theory it should be possible. but I don't know. If you get what I'm saying.

I think Hans Zimmer is the best composer in the world , his work is pure clasic and beautiful.For me his greatest OST's are from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 , Gladiator , Angels and Demons , Pirates Of The Caribbean. Love you Hans Zimmer , keep up the good work , Greetings from Romania

Rui Lima reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-28 21:59:35
After All!... he is a great composer, not only becose the enormous number of works, but for the quality. Maybe its becose the fact of having some times similar parts between musics that made his original style very its own.
My favourite H.Zimmer's OST's: Gladiator, Davinci Code, Pearl Harbour, Angels and Demons.
I can see his music in many great classical composers works.

Rui Lima reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-25 12:06:56
to me, hans zimmer is not one of the best composers of today, but it is indeed one of the most prolific, and has a extremely high number of works, wich only few I consider totally classical, and are theese wich I apreciate more.
I like the music but are all, ... very similar, and has score notes that are very muiscal but always the same.
Gladiator has parts almost identical to Gustave Holst's suite "the Planets" in the 1st mov. Mars, the bringer of war, and then appears again in "pirates of the caribbean", i think.
The music could be more orchestrated, and have a orchestra.

When's the next Dan Browne soundtrack coming (assuming Sony are making another one)?

Having just seen the playlist for the greatest hits am now going to go and try and buy it.

Brilliant work.
