Zimmer to score Dune?<br><br>"There are also some early rumblings (ha, Dune, rumblings, get it) that perhaps Hans Zimmer may be scoring the Arakkis epic."<br><br>https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/11/18/dune-timothee-chalam et-doesnt-know-what-fear-is/?fbclid=IwAR0wB7FOM_Bw8S7gJ4Nm8P xrSDLJhiooWRSTRaOFJdWSKSrkA50mZVIe-_II don't understand the composer's reasoning. If a piece of music is written with a palette of sounds in mind, it will only work as intended when those stems are all present. One can't aim to do a painting of a pasture and then leave all the green color out because some Gothic Art critic doesn't like the color.From albums yes, not from the scores... lolemoji movie. live action Pokémon movie. 5 transformers movies. Let’s be honest studios have no clue what people wantAre you sure Jackmans been removing the electronics from his music, or just from his albums?<br><br>Civil War was noticeably different, if you compare the OST to what you heard in the movie.
Hybrid said there was some sort of legal issue that came up which prevented use of the samples or something like that.Eh, Shore is a smart composer. He could make it work. I guess whether that's what studios think audiences want is another question entirely...Is it me or are none of the soundtracks on the website showing the sample tracks that you could listen to anymore?Have you heard that Henry Jackman will composing his music for the upcoming 2019 picture called Pokemon: Detective Pikachu?  I wonder what the film soundtrack would sound like.  Hmm...I think that Howard´s style of music doesn´t really fit to the post apocalyptic genre
For a Peter Jackson production I was expecting Howard Shore.I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!I was this tracklist for a 3rd cd floating around, is this legit ?<br><br><br>Disc 1  <br>1.

Frozen NightAbout his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P
@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?

Has anyone heard Morris' Scorpion King 3 score? any info about this one?

Hale reply Replies: 1 || 2011-11-02 10:41:17
This score seems to be a mix between "Angels and Demons"(Choir style), "King Arthur" (Heavy orchestra with dark percussions) but it lacks GOOD themes. We can feel "Tudors" music style in a few tracks.

I think it's a functionnal score which takes its sense only in the movie.

Excellently put.

I want to remark that it all comes together rather nicely for immortals, the whole being more than the sum of its parts.

For example I feel the ending sky fight and subsequent staff credits is one of the most memorably powerful moments I've experienced in the theater.

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 7 || 2011-11-17 23:53:22
Man, this is a really weak score. I thought Trevor Morris would do better on his first solo assignment but he disappointed me. The reason? TEMP TRACKS!

"Hyperion's Siren" = Inception brass chords

Second half of "To Mt. Olympus" = "The Might of Rome" from Gladiator

"Fight So Your Name Survives" = the Holstesque action rhythms from Gladiator

"Do Not Forsake Mankind" = "Journey to the Line" from The Thin Red Line

But worst of all is "Immortal Combat" and "Sky Fight/End Credits", which sound EXACTLY like "160 BPM" from Angels and Demons! What the hell? Why no creativity?

Rest of the score is dull, uninteresting along the lines of the new Conan score. What a flop.


Bondo2011-11-18 00:35:16
It's hardly a flop, it's killing at the box office. And it's not his first solo assignment.


Edmund Meinerts2011-11-18 22:50:20
The score is a flop, not the movie. And I meant first solo blockbuster assignment.


Bondo2011-11-19 03:13:50
Nah, I'm enjoying it. And it worked VERY well in the film itself.


Zantlwisder2011-11-22 08:36:42
You know what? "Immortal Combat" is 160 beats per minute! Exactly the same as "160 BPM" from Angels & Demons.


Ele2011-11-22 10:29:39
@Zantlwisder Incredible find! Awesome! I didn't see that coming. Nice one, Sherlock


Areozz2011-11-22 21:48:07
What are you talking about? this is the page for Immortals, not Sherlock Holmes...


Zantlwisder2011-11-27 01:21:12
2'20''in"Fight So Your Name Survives", the drum beats are the same in "Kraken"from POC2... but the whole score works well in the movie,really

Mp3 samples on Amazon now! I don't know if it would be best for me to wait until the movie to hear the score or not.

Miles reply Replies: 3 || 2011-10-17 22:36:14
The official site has some samples up now! Any thoughts, first impressions?


Ds2011-10-18 12:48:32
I hear only one little cue... where do you see more samples? Thanks :)


Miles2011-10-19 16:51:52
You have to click on the tabs for synopsis, cast, downloads, etc., to hear the other cues.


Ds2011-10-19 18:23:39
Ok thanks a lot! ... i hope the full soundtrack will be more epic than these cues... These are ambiant cues, with no theme...

Äh Tyler Bates 300 Part II ??? Its not so different !


NoName2011-10-09 21:38:07
A copy from Tyler Bates 300 !


Miles2011-10-10 16:25:41
Actually, there's a small score excerpt on the official site, and it definitely sounds more "Hans Zimmer" than "Tyler Bates."


NoName2011-10-10 22:47:57
Do you hear the music complete ? Do you M.D. in Music ?


Areozz2011-10-11 02:55:12
Do you M.D. in being a jerk? Mmmmm....hmmmmm, yes. Yes, you do.


Blu2011-10-11 11:28:39
No sarcasm intended but I didn't know the term M.D. can be used for anything other than medicine. Can it?


Areozz2011-10-11 14:25:44
I'm too lazy to look it up, but I'm pretty sure you're right, Blu.

This NoName guy thinks he's a know-it-all and thinks this music sounds like Tyler Bates, possibly because Tyler Bates did the music for 300 and because this movie appears to be similar to 300. It is not clear whether he has actually heard the music.

All composers have a unique style and if you've listened to the composers involved in this conversation, you could provide a statement like Miles did. NoName appears to have not a wide range of musical tastes....

*Waits for response from NoName*


Areozz2011-10-11 15:50:34
Ah, I overcame my laziness and looked it up. M.D. does indeed stand for Doctor of Medicine which makes absolutely no sense in the context that NoName used it in. Perhaps a better choice would have been "do you major in music?" to which the response could have been, "you don't have to be a music major to state when one composer's work sounds like another's."


Papapalpatine772011-10-11 18:27:12
Actually, if it sounds anything like 300, it really sounds like Elliot Gildenthal's score to Titus. Bates copied much of the themes from it and there was even a lawsuit. Now on the back of the latest Blu-ray (the digibook), there is an asterisk next to Bates' name. At the bottom it says *based on preexisting compositions not authored by Tyler Bates.


NoName2011-10-11 21:23:38
Sory iam not from America or England, Iam from Germany ind Iam a friend of Ramin Djawadi and Michael Levine. I know many composers RCP, because of my position in Germany. Doctor in German "Doktor" in Duisburg. I can not so good English but i can music and that is not English.

I hear often music before it is published. My specialist areas is Fimmusic, there i teach in munich (Bavaria). Ramin is an old fiend from Duisburg , i visit him often ! Therefor i have hear the new music.

And its really the same.

(Please no questions, idont send everybody the music)

Sorry for my bad english, i have it learn by myself.


Luc2011-10-14 16:34:23
That already was a copy of Elliot Goldenthal's Titus...

NoName, keep throwing your job title around, honestly no one cares. You can make yourself feel big by saying that meaningless garbage if you like however :) Just know that no one here actually cares. At all.
