Are the above credits with only Hans complete or not? If they are, then it's interesting how much of this album is just Zimmer. Even if it is an exercise in musical intensity more than anything else. I have to yet to see the film, but the score isn't as bad as I was worried it would be. In fact, most of it's just fine, and I look forward to hearing it with the film. It certainly does raise the pulse when you listen to it. It's like dread in musical form.I know exactly what part you're talking about. Unfortunately that segment wasn't released in any part of the score. It's a matter of waiting for the film version when the complete score is released.Perhaps. I also noticed a more heroic variation. How to turn the theme into a march.Lol, why though? <br>But yeah I think it will get disqualified. Maybe it'll get a Golden Globe.Hans probably hopes so... Warner not so much... lol
Do you guys think Dunkirk will be disqualify from the Oscars because the score used Elgar's theme? Similar to how Johannson was disqualified for using Richter's piece.I wanted that track as well!!! recording sessions when :'(I think its probably a remix by Hi-Finesse or someone like that. Just guessing maybe based on some of Elfmans work based on XL&Zimmer's themesYep. I know, but we have to agree that Elfman would never do anything like that. I do not think even XL.<br>Listen again. They refer to the themes of Hans' Superman in the second half of the trailer.I'd also like that chilling piece from when the ship sinks<br><br>other than that, not that much I desire
You said it yourself "almost never". <br>Some MoS trailers featured Hans' score. ComicCon trailer for BvS featured music from Hans and Tom. <br>I actually didn't hear any reference to Hans' 3 main Supes motifs. Beside the hints of "Come Together", I find the music rather boring anf generic.no, you can buy on steamNo.<br>The trailer's music is almost never is composed by the composer of the score. It is made by a specialized company.So, is that Elfman's score in the trailer? It seems a bit early, but if that is, I just MIGHT be okay with him taking over from Junkie.Okay, point taken, but at least his previous scores for Nolan were obviously music and had an emotional presence. And the two note Batman theme was actually something Hans had to convince Nolan about. Nolan wanted this heroic theme that was left unused.
@Mike Hans himself said sometimes a movie does not need a melody theme. It depends on the movie and the characters in it.<br>the main character here is fear threat and so on... in that regards the score respects that.<br><br>@hybrid: in order to have the full soundtrack we will then have to wait for bluray and rip the music & effect out of it. ^^This was one of the most emotionally engaging movies I have ever seen.  I suspect it has to do with the fact that my father was a WW II vet who was on a ship going through the Straits of Gibraltar when they were bombarded by German airplanes.  The selection of Elgar's Nimrod was a stroke of genius.  It rises and falls like the ocean, like a wheezy organ.  I wept.  This movie is a tribute to the Everyman who did his or her part.  We need to be reminded.It's not iTunes ????? Hybrid any examples you can post ?I’m going to see the movie again on Tuesday, but after the first viewing I would say yes and no. The cues on the album are mostly in chronological order (towards the end at least) and I would say ‘Home’, ‘The Oil’, ‘Variation 15’ and ‘End Titles’ play basically unchanged in the movie. However, in my experience the ticking sound is much more present throughout the entire movie and speeds up and slows down during tense moments. On the top of my head, there is not a cue that played in the film that stood out for not being on the album, except for the one when Tommy and Gibson are racing the stretcher across the beach. It’s the staccato violin or cello cue. I don’t know what kind of cue was composed for the prologue since I haven’t seen it, but judging from the comments here that cue is missing as well.Totally agree on that note . Genius has been one of most unique scores in ages and the music is great

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.

Looks like I finally grabbed the cuesheet for that one... Should be more or less accurate (knowing how much of a mess it was)... :P

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 ? ;)
