Any news on the album?Call me crazy but I really would have been interested to see what Tom's Godzilla would sound like under the direction of someone with good musical taste such as Dougherty.<br><br>Not really a huge fan of Desplat's work but I would definitely kill to hear Douglas Pipes take on this project.@Edmund Hahahahaha..... yeah, I've always heard that too. Even the chopping string section in the background of both pieces is vaguely similar.Zimmer did some additional music on this?Sounds to me like the big dramatic Bach-like theme at the very end of the Kraken. Only a slight similarity though :p
Wow Edmund, I'm impressed... where do you hear this theme in The Kraken? They sound like completely different pieces of music to me :-DI'm not upset (I like Junkie, but I LOVE Desplat's), but i HOPE for Desplat or PipesToo bad, but I hope this means Desplat is back.I see, thank you for answer!Sounds excellent . Balfe has really found a unique voice now . I have listened to the YouTube link for the album constantly
So... long story short, it actually looks like Tom will NOT be doing Godzilla after all, according to director Michael Dougherty. Check the director's Twitter account. Even though I enjoy Tom's music, I'm much more excited about the prospect of a Douglas Pipes Godzilla score (or the return of Desplat, tbh).I asked this before to lorne on Facebook . He said the roles can mean different things . Some composers assistants help with running the office . Some deal with making sure the music works to the latest cut of film . Some arrange<br>And orchestrate also . Means varied tasks .Please!!! Come to Mexico!!! I agree with Leonardo!!!Please could you also come to MEXICO!!! You have a lot of fans in Center and South America!! :)Yeah, just got announced on Film Music Reporter, although the rumor was flying around long before that. Really disappointing for me, since the director Michael Dougherty usually works with Douglas Pipes who is a great, underappreciated composer.
It really is too bad HGW isn't scoring Alien. He is one of the best film composers and he scores so few movies these days. A real shame!Great score.....I have a question and I would love if somebody can answer it - What such an assistant of composer is doing? Is he just making coffee or actually making music? I am really curious, I know that Lorne was assistant too!@Hybrid: Is true Tom go to compose Godzilla: King of the Monsters?nice thanks

Beautiful gesture by HZ & great track, choral reprise of TDKR themes.


tobi2012-07-27 19:50:04
hybrid where can we find this choral piece, and i just saw tdkr and what a great story and music alike.


Hybrid Soldier2012-07-27 19:51:51
Just click on "See details..." on this page and you'll know !


tobi2012-07-27 19:55:53
thanks


Mr. Charles2012-07-27 20:02:27
See, this is one of the reasons why HZ is my favorite composer. You don't see John Williams doing stuff like this.


Anonymous2012-07-27 20:32:22
itunes? :/


Uga22012-07-27 21:10:59
What Mr Charles said^


tobi2012-07-27 22:14:13
@Mr. Charles

I hope the day never comes when john williams has to do something like because that would mean that allot of innocent people have to day.

+ why do you have downgrade another composer like this using this situation

I am great admirer of zimmers music and not that big of fan of williams but to say this is why you like zimmer is just plainly FUCKED UP. Sorry mods for the language


Hybrid Soldier2012-07-27 22:41:36
Yeah I agree with tobi here, no reason to be harsh. Plus, what do you know about what other composers do or do not in their private life ? Maybe they are doing things we don't even know about.

But the point here is that what HZ was über cool ! :)


Mr. Charles2012-07-28 00:02:35
Whoa, whoa, whoa. You guys are totally misinterpreting what I mean. Don't get me wrong, I love John Williams. But I see and hear people trash talk HZ all too often. What I'm saying is it's nice to see him doing this. Very humble and generous.

I never said that I'm glad this horrible event happened, I wish to God it hadn't. I said "this is ONE OF THE REASONS that HZ is my favorite composer". It goes to show what kind of a man he is. In no way does that mean I'm glad this happened or that it would ever happen. I don't understand where you guys are getting that from...

And Hybrid, you're right - I have no idea what other composers are doing in their private lives. Why you mentioned a composer's private life is beyond me, because this is not HZ's private life here. He is publicly making this music available to everyone, and I think it's great that 100% of the proceeds go to all the victims of Aurora.

Again, I did not say this is why I like HZ. It's just one more thing to add to the lost of why he's my favorite. No reason to get angry or upright, people. I'm just a beloved fan expressing how I feel


ToddL2012-07-30 04:41:57
This is a profound achievement aimed at honoring the victims and all affected by a tragedy that shocked a nation. Hans has once again poured out his sensibilities, this time not into fiction, yet over factual and shocking circumstances. Anyone that overlooks the straightforward and heartfelt sorrow and gratitude of this beautiful effort is simply stupid....sorry. I appreciate him and his spirit more as a human being and artist than ever before.


ananymous2012-07-30 11:38:29
@ Mr. Charles

for example: Elegy for Cello and Orchestra


Lambegue2012-08-05 16:25:48
Well, I was rather unhappy with TDKR score (even if I haven't listened yet to the suites and to the digital exclusive material), but THIS is impressive...And yes, it's another proof that, beyond the composer, Zimmer is a great man.
It does not change anything to the quality of the music, but still...Nice to know.

It is sad. You can't find it on Itunes anymore

Are there any other songs that sound like this?

This is probably the best question I have ever read. Aren't you related to MacArthur, by any chance?


MacArthur2013-12-20 16:23:47
No that is not me. you'd know ;)


Rob2014-10-24 22:56:36
Look up "Lux Aeterna" by György Ligeti

So if Zimmer did this by himself and the first half is the "Slow Knife" cue from TDKR in choral form, does that mean he did the slow knife cue on his own? I doubt he would use it here if it were someone else's arrangement. Beautiful piece and beautiful gesture, as an aside, though I'm sorry it ever had to be written... :/

The vocal rendition of "A Dark Knight" is really beautiful.

To Mr. Zimmer-
Is the score available for performance of this piece by a local choir (Musicians of St. Clare) in Colorado?
Please - someone, tell me how to direct this question to the composer. We'd like to perform the piece at our Fall, 2012, concert in memory of the victims and for the community. Thank you!

Whoa, this track is simply amazing. I loved every second of this 8-minute cue. Simply stunning and incredible arrangement and what power when you think of what this track was written for and commemorates. Thank you HZ for this awesome gesture of generosity and kindness.


JordiVcecilia2012-07-28 02:20:37
it's so appropiate...and it's simply breathtaking piece of music.


NUts2012-07-28 05:52:48
Umm...No offense but...This track is the Bane theme and the Dark Knight theme in choral form...We already have this on the OST "RISE" and to be honest, although I appreciate more Batman-related music, I don't see why this composition has to be related to the movie, and why it's not some original piece that has no relation to ANY film....

Nice piece, but I just found that a bit off, considering the circumstances...


Mr. Charles2012-07-28 06:19:51
It has TDKR themes in it because the incident that happened was directly related to TDKR. It would be kind of random if HZ just out of the blue composed a piece dedicated to all of these people. Actually, it would be random if any composer did that. But that is beyond the point. The point is that HZ generously and humbly made this piece specifically for the victims of the Aurora shootings.


ananymous2012-07-28 10:04:42
The man knows no limits ...


Nuts2012-07-28 15:39:35
Sorry but i still disagree. Nice piece of music, but it doesn't HAVE to be the music from the movie. Zimmer writing a piece with its own signifcant identity (apart from the movie) is more appropriate because the shooting is about the PEOPLE DYING, NOT THE MOVIE.

When I listen to this piece it reminds me of Talia/Bane (their theme is used) and the Dark Knight ending....This doesn't remind me of the Aurora incident at all.

I understand where he was going with this, but really, I don't need the shooting to be directly related to the Batman movie. That was the killer's choice - who says we should give him that title designation? Im sure that's what he wants. This is why you see many news stations calling it the Aurora Movie Massacre and taking away the Batman element. Because its NOT about the movie. It's about going to the movies itself.

Like I said my opinion...Its just somber Batman music, to me. I donated. I thank Zimmer for it, just as I thank him for "RISE" and "THE END" off the OST...


Anonymous2012-07-28 19:23:25
"This doesn't remind me of the Aurora incident at all."

Yes because we all want to be reminded of it, lmao. What a dumb thing to say.


nuts2012-07-29 03:09:49
Actually Anon what you just said was pretty stupid.

I dont need music for Batman serving to remind me of the tragedy.

Something else - a different piece of music - defintely.


This is about a guy shooting innocent people in a movie theater. It's not about the Batman movie.

This guy probably WANTS that connection to be cemented in the public, but I refuse that.


nuts2012-07-29 05:25:24
Like it or not, the incident is forever linked with the tragedy.


NUts2012-07-29 19:38:27
Its only linked to Batman if you WANT it to be linked...i refuse to let this guy Holmes make himself remembered through this movie.
