Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip

I tried recreating the version he plays live, hopefully the quality is better even though it's youtube..

Wow beautiful work, Cyberpunk88! Wish there was a lossless version available to download. It sounded awesome!


Cyberpunk882017-12-20 03:47:17
Thanks, I do have the lossless file (although not completely lossless since Aurora was lossy). But i'm not sure if i'm allowed to put a download link here..

Cyberpunk88 is it possible for you to send the "lossless" file?

Re: Music Permissions in Educational Setting

Dear Sir:

I am a senior majoring in Dance, and am creating an original choreographic work for presentation in our Fall, 2017 Senior Project Concert.

I understand that you are the owner of the copyright for the musical composition Aurora and I would like to use the song in my work. I would like to use a section of the song as an accompaniment to a section of my choreographed work.

The Senior Project Concert will be performed at Montclair State University’s Studio Theater, a 100-seat house, in December 2017. The proceeds from all ticket sales to this event go directly towards the Dance Department’s budget for paying musicians to accompany dance classes throughout the school year. Neither myself nor any other participant in this concert receives any compensation for our work in the show.

Additionally, as a student choreographer I have an extremely limited budget for the creation and production of my work. I hope that you will allow me to use this music at no charge. If this is not possible, please let me know the fee required for this type of use.

Your signature below, under “confirmed by,” or electronic approval response will indicate that you agree to permit this use without payment of a fee. Please let me know if you have any questions concerning this license. Also, could you please let me know as soon as possible if this song cannot be licensed for this use, so that I may change my plans for my work accordingly. You can reach me at the contact information listed below.

I appreciate your help in this matter, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

Amy

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.

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... :/

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.
