Is Hans no longer married to Suzanne Zimmer? I saw articles from Hollywood in Vienna that he’s now married to Dina De Luca.Really fun score. Definitely on par with Elfman's effort.Chronological order is near impossible for music in an open world game.Hello everyone, Does anyone know how I can find "Homecoming" song in the movie but the film version not the soundtrack version? The homecoming song as it was played in the film itself.was anyone ever able to put the OST and the unreleased tracks together in chronological order?
Year, but seriously, these genres are where Harry Gregson-Williams always succeeded  (Animation and Fantasy). I have high hopes that he will do a decent job and find back to his roots from the 2000s.i love this score so much. this comment is for Hans and team again for making such an amazing score. if they ever read what we write here lol : )<br><br>so, i am not a movie goer and many people claim and say that scores are to serve movies, and so and forth. well, i finally watched Dunkirk and it is an excellent movie. the movie did not do justice to the score imo.<br><br>here's an example. "Variation 15" on Nimrod is the "soothing" track for me in the whole score. much more soothing than "Home". i can play it in a loop. it surprised me that the cut gave it only a mere few seconds in the movie. now, i only watched Dunkirk once but i am pretty sure it played once, and for a few seconds, while "Bane" was in the plane.<br><br>another fact is that i always felt like being in a war plane when listening to "Supermarine". not an helicopter but more like a fast moving plane. that was before watching the movie and i never read about the movie. i knew it was about war and the only war machine i could think of was that. the fact that i was able to match the music with my own images says how great Hans and team were on that.<br><br>the constant tension felt in the "Mole", "Supermarine", etc. is more intense in the movie though. i liked that.<br><br>also, i watched the movie credits to the very end. i wanted to see if they would match it with the track. they did, and it ends exactly with the starting point as i expected. for me it was a cue that "the war didn't end there". sad, yes, but the effect was on point.<br><br>so okay, i am minority here in saying that a score album put together is its own thing. doesn't need a movie to exist. great movie. great score. both in their own rights!Don't want to be a downer but, really, let's all hope things won't blow to s*** like they did with Alien: Covenant or some other annoyance.Harry gregson williams will compose mulan ??!!!!! Come on this is blowing my mind. I truly hope for hans zimmer or other great composer like desplat or silvestri. I wanted hans to score a master piece like last samurai. But no offense to harry. He is good and more than good but disney live action like mulan really wanted something special that i think the right guy is hans !Hans will cowrite the score together with Faltermeyer... :) ;)
It's meHello?Great news! Can't wait to see the concert online or Blu-Ray.Cool that you met Hans! As for Hans doing Top Gun 2, well there's some pleasantly surprising news!Yes!
Hollywood in Vienna: Hans Zimmer was amazing! One of the best concerts I’ve ever been to! I ended up meeting the man himself after the concert! Amazing programme!<br><br>Btw Tom cruise said (in a recorded message that was shown at the concert) that he’d be working on Top Gun 2 with Hans! Pretty cool news!Really a fun and nice score from Dom.Any confirmation about Zimmer and Balfe working on the score? Or they just did the trailer music?good musicIn Itunes.<br><br>https:// itunes.apple.com/nz/album /goosebumps-2-haunted-halloween-original-motion-picture/1439 328170

I know this is another random question, but does anyone know who composed the music for Pirates Of The Caribbean Online? There's an album cover that says:

Music by Hans Zimmer
Additional Tracks by New Ages and Amir Baghiri

But on IMDB it says the in-game music was done by a completely different team of composers. Anyone have any sources, or any validation on which is correct?


superultramegaa2018-03-22 19:21:05
So I'm guessing no one knows if Zimmer did this or not?

superultramegaa reply Replies: 1 || 2018-02-22 01:40:06
On my cuesheet for Pirates 1, it gives Captain Jack Sparrow a credit to Jablonsky. I think it makes sense given his Transformers style, but I was wondering if someone could tell me whether or not it's wrong or not.


Balfe2018-02-22 14:56:51
It would be very interesting to get a better sense of what exactly Zanelli's role in the franchise is. He is a very capable composer but his work on 5 was utter scheisse. But that may just be what the franchise calls for. How does the supposedly precarious Hans put his name on all this shit.

Bayhem reply Replies: 4 || 2017-11-08 15:59:08
Ok, I need to know who composed THIS particular piece of music so I can buy him a beer. It's so goddamn good that it's now my ringtone. Can't stop listening to it:

Zanelli variations on a theme by Zimmer


James2017-11-08 16:17:32
Zanelli claim as his:

"I did a lot of writing on this film, much more than I can present here [...]. “Broadside” was a huge action sequence with tons of twists and turns.[...] This cue is also how I got my Pirates nickname; [...] Geoff “Broadside” Zanelli."


Bayhem2017-11-08 20:12:48
Thank you, guys. I just went to Zanelli's site and indeed he is the one who composed this great track. I really thought that it was either Zimmer or Glennie-Smith.....

Anyway, my hat's off to Zanelli for this piece of music. It really pumps you up.


James2017-11-08 21:10:53
Yes, it's one of the best arrangements in the entire saga and, in my opinion, the best of Zanelli with the pieces of Zimmer.

David reply Replies: 6 || 2017-07-25 10:06:41
Question - who had the biggest hand in creating the Jack Sparrow-related theme, the one that plays in the middle of "He's A Pirate"?


badbu2017-07-25 10:37:24
The "Main Theme" is from Hans. Listen to "Pirates, Day One, 4:56 AM"


David2017-07-25 17:11:26
I know that, I mean the part that plays in the middle of the main theme. It wasn't present on the demo.


Hybrid Soldier2017-07-25 18:44:56
Hans... He didn't just write the demo...


David2017-07-26 12:04:49
Don't be so defensive lol, I know that. I was simply asking a question.


David2017-07-26 17:27:30
Who wrote the music in "The Medallion Calls"?


Mandarin2017-07-27 11:15:53
Zimmer, Badelt and Djawadi

Daniel reply Replies: 2 || 2016-05-28 02:13:27
Why is Hans Zimmer credited for almost every track on here? Didn't he only write like 3 demos and then the other composers arranged from them? Why is it fair to credit him on almost all tracks? Or is it that each track he's on is an arrangement or uses the themes he composed in the couple demoes he did? I'm still really confused about the total extent of his involvement with the score, both behind the scenes and actual compositions.


Hybrid Soldier2016-05-28 09:39:56
He didn't "write only demos"... First he only wrote one, and he actually co-wrote a lot of the cues...


Zimson2016-05-28 11:39:18
Thanks for clearing that up. It's a shame Badelt alone got top credit.

What is a "riff track"?

Mike reply Replies: 11 || 2013-08-01 02:29:57
Where does the Pirates Of The Caribbean Theme (Original Demo) come from? It's different than the 4:56 AM album track. Is the latter just a shortened version or what?


Anonymous2013-08-01 02:36:44
Odd indeed. Just found it today. Sounds like "The Battle" from Gladiator was mixed in with the Day One demo piece.


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 09:01:36
Hans made it "available" on a Soundtrack.net interview for POTC 2 back in 2006.


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 12:48:37
Speaking of that suite, I once asked Hans if it was the only he wrote for that score. Here are some HZ thoughts about POTC (this is "censored" cause some can't just be shared out loud...) :

"No, but if you listen carefully, virtually all the tunes in the movie are arrangements of that... Oh, and the skeleton dance number, but that suite is the cue - with some help from Geoff Zanelli -. Gore and Jerry B. asked me to go home and come up with something. That's why it completely falls apart at the end... I was tired, and couldnt play anymore...

Ramin did a great arrangement of my tune for the sword fight. That got everything going. Geoff Zanelli arranged more music than anybody, some of it really way beyond arrangement. Blake Neely was stuck on - I think - 28 versions of the 'moon' cue... The endtitles - by tradition in all the films - are my suite arranged by Geoff.

I didn't write a Sparrow tune until the second movie. He just had a riff for the first one... Just as a personal joke, I tried to have every character's theme start with the same 3 notes. That got a little confusing. But you have to have fun."


NM2013-08-01 13:08:06
That's really cool Hybrid, thanks. It's interesting to know how the score actually came together, that's really not what comes across from interviews and whatnot. Do you know which themes/tunes Badelt came up with?


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 13:23:24
;)

I've gathered quite some intel on many movies from Hans' more or less effective recollections regarding them !

For Klaus, listen to the whole Fog Bound, it's like a medley of all his themes ! :)


Mike2013-08-01 15:29:05
Thank you, Hybrid. Interesting news and quote. I thought you said a while back that the "tut tut tut" pan flute theme in Fog Bound was Zimmer, though?


Pierre2013-08-01 19:09:05
You say Fog Bound is a medley of Klaus' Themes. However it opens with Zimmer's Jack Sparrow "riff", then there's some atmospheric electronics with a bit of tension building, then the "love theme" or whatever, which is in Hans' original demo. Please explain.


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 19:18:23
No no no I mean the real 5 min Fog Bound...

Not the OST track, which indeed has a Sparrow theme by Hans and at the end the beginning of Smitten Will...


Mike2013-08-01 21:32:15
Oh, by the way, which Black Hawk Down cue/album track did the moonlight serenade scene rip off of?


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-01 21:56:25
Tribal War.


Pierre2013-08-01 22:02:19
Thanks Hybrid Soldier, I was not aware of an alternative track.

Anyone notice the POTC4 mermaid theme at the beginning of "Liz Meets Barbossa"?


Mr. Fate2013-05-07 00:47:07
I think you might be confusing that with another theme that is found all over the four films and has come in a wide variety of arrangements.


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-07 08:31:44
Careful HZ had the fun to try to make every theme start with the same 3 notes, so it's confusing ! :)


Anonymous2013-05-07 08:37:58
He did?!


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-07 09:16:53
Well, take the POTC Main Theme, the first 3 notes. Then the Jack Sparrow related themes beginnings(Breaking the Chains and Captain Jack Sparrow).

Take Beckett's theme first 3 notes. Then Davy Jones. The Kraken' main melody after that...

Yeah, always the same. Different pitches, same progression... :P


Mr. Fate2013-05-07 13:46:58
So, I'm NOT going crazy after all! When all the sessions surfaced, I started taking a closer look at all the music and started noticing that almost EVERYTHING from Pirates 1 was the same theme!

mind=blown.


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-07 13:48:14
Almost all of P1 is an arrangement of his demo... :)

According the OST credit, "You Best Start Believin' is either by Klaus, Zanelli or Jablonsky.

I have no doubt The Captain's Table & Keep To The Code are Nick Glennie-Smith.

And one last tribute to James McKee Smith who co-wrote some of the best cues of that score. Paycheck in Sacking the Village, anyone ? ;)
