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.
He didn't "write only demos"... First he only wrote one, and he actually co-wrote a lot of the cues...
Thanks for clearing that up. It's a shame Badelt alone got top credit.
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?
Odd indeed. Just found it today. Sounds like "The Battle" from Gladiator was mixed in with the Day One demo piece.
Hans made it "available" on a Soundtrack.net interview for POTC 2 back in 2006.
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."
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?
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 ! :)
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?
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.
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...
Oh, by the way, which Black Hawk Down cue/album track did the moonlight serenade scene rip off of?
Thanks Hybrid Soldier, I was not aware of an alternative track.
