My one hope is that this doesn't mean Chris Nolan will be tying Zimmer's hands behind his back for future scores. If he wants to do that here, okay. I can get over one score. But I hope Nolan doesn't keep calling for this non-melodic approach.That was one of my favorites, wish it was on the OST.Yeah, was also looking for that track.Nolan's liner notes, which explains a lot on the score :<br><br>"British people are raised on the story of Dunkirk. The events of the evacuation are sacred ground, not to be ventured onto without great care. Daunting for a filmmaker. But the things that place Dunkirk so firmly at the heart of a nation's self-image are the very qualities that make it one of the greatest stories in human history. Irresistible to a filmmaker.<br><br>This film required a remarkable creative team, and Hans Zimmer, as well as having been a valued member in the past, knows how to assemble his own great team. From our first meeting, where I described to the percussionist, Satnam Ramgotra, the unusual rhythmic structure of the script and how it needed to be amplified by the music, through the finishing touches applied by Lorne Balfe during our last weeks of mixing, the importance of teamwork was paramount. The process nicely echoed the circumstances of the events we were trying to honour- a triumph of communal effort, not individual heroism.<br><br>When I called Hans one night with a one word suggestion- "Nimrod", I wasn't sure he'd accept experimenting with an existing theme for the climax of the film. To my surprise, he knew just who to call to achieve the deconstruction of Elgar's monumental theme, a theme as beloved to the English as Dunkirk itself, often played at ceremonial occasions and funerals. It's a theme which (I never admitted to Hans) I am incapable of hearing without feeling the surprising weight of my father's coffin on my shoulder. Hans brought in Benjamin Wallfisch, who, in collaboration with the great music editor Alex Gibson and myself, fashioned a modern reworking that grows out of the sights and sounds of the movie- tapping the original's resonances without feeling unearned. Hans's brass accents complete the piece's power to move without sentimentalizing.<br><br>Hans went on to incorporate Elgar's theme elsewhere in the score, a score that on this album has been divided into cues, but which in the film plays as one long piece with a unifying and complex rhythmic and tonal structure. The structure of the screenplay itself builds upon the shepherd tone concepts I first explored with composer David Julyan in the soundtrack for "The Prestige", but here Zimmer's team (in particular Andy Page and Andrew Kawczynski) and I added a whole new rhythmical structure. This can't be fully represented on the album, but in the film it is able to integrate sound effects and even story structure into the very fabric of the music in a new and unique manner.<br><br>The rigid structure, to which we adamntly stuck, at times proved frustrating for the musicians, but they persevered and produced extraordinary cues based on unusual solutions (such as a recording of my watch that Hans and his team adapted into many different rhythmic voices). The disciplined procedural approach stopped the music for "Dunkirk" from ever resorting to arbitrary cinematic emotionalism, something Hans and I always felt was vital, given the inherent emotional heft of the real life events. This has been a long and hard journey, but I am proud of the final results, and hope that you will share my appreciation for the talent of the artists who worked so hard for so long on this score.<br><br>CHRISTOPHER NOLANI don't think emotion and melodies = Oscar worthy. Dunkirk's score fits in with the movie far better than Chappie.
Saw the film again last night and there are a ton of great cues missing, especially from the first half of the film. It's a crime the cue when they carry the stretcher onto the ship wasn't included.The answer is: Christopher Nolan ;-)It doesn't crossfade as much as, say, The Dark Knight Rises or Inception, but there is  very rarely dead air. I haven't listened enough times to determine when it does and doesn't crossfade, but the tracks are, at least, very closely edited together.I Love Hans' stuff but this score didn't really do it for me. I don't see how people are repping this as Oscar worthy but trash something like CHAPPiEs score, something with actual emotion and melodies.This soundtrack will win an oscar . It's great to see Balfe back with Zimmer. Dream team
Does anyone know whether the cd version actually has the cues crossfading into each other? Since in the film the score plays almost as an entire cue, it would have made sense if they did that. It sounds like some cues in the digital version end kind of awkwardly, like 'Impulse' and 'Home'. These cues fade out while there still seems to be some instrumentation progression going on. Hence the crossfade thought...Oooh credits. I'm guessing from these it's going to be disqualified from entering Oscar nominations because<br>1. Use of a classical musical piece throughout<br>2. More than one guy is credited.<br><br>Anyway, that's how Hans always liked, crediting everyone.I have to agree on the soundtrack being mostly unlistenable...<br><br>This is nothing like Inception, or even Interstellar.<br><br>I seriously doubt there's going to be a big stink made about any track from this score the likes of "No Time For Caution" back in 14...<br><br>I tried...I tried real hard to find something to keep me interested in this score, but I personally couldn't find anything. Most of it is tension building noise. I'm sure it's great within the film, but outside the film? Not so much.<br><br>I guess Zimmer is on "retirement mode" now...He's slowing down and not wanting to produce the rockin stuff that he used to...I can't blame him, but still...This score sounds like a total experiment.Sorry bud...<br><br>Its not.Hi everyone, does anyone know the name of the music in the Dunkirk Trailer 1 at 01:30? It doesn't not seem to be in the score, I'm assuming it's not in the movie, I'm going to see it Sunday. If anyone knows the music or where to find it, please Comment, thanks!
Tina had a lot of work to do here!Each time I listen to "The Oil," I'm convinced it can't get any louder and larger, but it does. If you don't look at the track time, you're just constantly thinking it's about to end, and yet it somehow continues to up the ante until you almost can't handle anymore!I was on three concerts so far and just at the one at Frankfurt some band members came down from the stage after the concert. I didn'f got a autograph but I did photos with nile marr and nick glennie smith. But if you would ask some of the band members I am sure they will say "ok perhaps I can arrange it" would try it this way :)I really like it. It's a clever score that sounds like it had an awful lot of thought put into it.A fanmade.<br><br>Hybrid probably took the track from here because the guy behind the channel was stating that it was original without being. Leaving the link here would only give him more audience.

What's with DP's helmets on the top right?

I know on the liner notes there is a thank you directed towards Zimmer.. But what's the connection between HZ & DP?


Areozz2014-01-29 01:10:48
Zimmer was the Music Consultant.


Spence2014-01-29 06:53:26
They just won the grammy for Best Album. Since they've worked with RCP, it would only make sense to promote them in that promotion icon spot :)


Zeus2014-01-29 16:43:06
While that does make sense, it was well over 3 years ago. If anything, their helmets were there during the release of the soundtrack and / or film. But who knows. Perhaps that is why, perhaps not.


RealFfingMusic2014-02-08 20:19:13
How many people exactly composed the tracks?

Warfighter reply Replies: 6 || 2013-04-14 02:19:32
What was RCP's involvement in "Oblivion"? It definitely has a strong Inception/ Dark Knight vibe
The credits state: Mixed at RCP.

Did Clay Duncan work on this?

It's really a great score and fits the movie perfectly.



Ds2013-04-14 16:25:16
I think it's the first great epic score of 2013!

I didn't know it was mixed at RCP, i checked the digital booklet and didn't find anything about that... But i did it quickly so maybe i'm wrong!


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-14 16:33:51
Unlike Tron RCP didn't work on that one in any way... Yeah the score was mixed there, like a LOT of scores these days, cause it's one of the best facilities for that in Hollywood... ;)


The score is great, but unlike Tron, sounds really nothing like RCPish... Sure one cue is a TDKR ripoff (temptrack, I guess), and yeah a few have Tron vibe, but that's all... Putting a synth pad in a score these days & using percussions make everyone call anything RCP...


JamesT2013-04-15 02:32:34
Very true, Hybrid.


Edmund Meinerts2013-04-28 15:56:01
Sounds nothing like RCP? Then what's with all the Batman Begins/Dark Knight ostinatos running all over the place? That opening track "Waking Up" is obviously influenced by Zimmer's Batman scores (with one Inception blast thrown in for good measure) and it's far from the only one. The similarities go way beyond just synth and percussion.


Ds2013-04-28 16:38:19
I agree with Edmund Meinerts, the composers were clearly influenced by Zimmer last works for the orchestral parts (especially TDKR). But what's best in Oblivion score is the synth stuff, which remains very fresh.


Mike2013-07-05 01:21:13
Hybrid, which cue is the TDKR ripoff? Judging by the album, I'd guess it's "Waking Up", but I don't know since I never saw the film or heard the complete score.

Hi I'm from Chile. I study graphic design at Diego Portales University I have to do a work about Hans Zimmer . I would know if you can help me please, answering some questions &#191;What do you think about him as composer? &#191;What is his best soundtrack and why? &#191; What is important about his life?(something anecdotic) .If you tell me all the things that you know I'd be really grateful.

Stygian2012-12-30 04:05:20
I'm fairly sure it is. Look again.


Anonymous2012-12-30 21:35:47
Not on my set.


Mr. Charles2012-12-30 22:52:14
Well then son, you need to download it again. It's listed on here as track 27. On the sessions, it's cue 5m26s Final Scheme. It was released as the bonus track "Castor"


Mr. Charles2012-12-30 22:54:33
There's an "s" in front of the 26 because it's source music. I would have thought that it's just part of the score, but I guess not. It plays when Sam is in the End of Line club talking with Castor, or "Zues". All of the music playing during that part of the film (End of Line, Final Scheme, Party Crashers) is considered source music.

Hybrid, do you have the credits for each track? :)


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-28 10:20:26
Well you know it's nearly all tracks by Daft Punk & Joe Trapanese.

Flynn's Flashback is by Toby Chu.


Then you have some unknown help by some unknown big guys, but it's not really known... xD


theeaglesfan0052012-12-28 19:47:46
i know Hans Zimmer was involved... in the booklet that came with the soundtrack they give a huge thanks to him and some other people

I really can't wait for Trapanese's TU release on January 8th


Mr. Charles2012-12-28 23:04:59
I was getting at that. They thanked Hans Zimmer, Harry Gregson-Williams, Christophe Beck and a couple other composers. The entire score has Zimmer's touch all over it. But thanks for the partial credit for that one cue I suppose. There just has to be more, though


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-29 10:06:51
Clay Duncan was the first guy hired to score Tron Legacy (hence his trailer music back 4 years ago). His music actually had the roots of the final score.

Director wanted Daft, so they kicked him.

But in the end Mickey wasn't pleased with DP, so they asked for some back up by RCP and others. Not saying DP's score was rejected, not at all, but it was really guided & helped by RCP people, including... Clay Duncan, the fallen... LOL


Mr. Charles2012-12-29 18:08:17
Well I went to Joseph Trapanese's site and found some credits. Turns out he's worked on M83's latest album. They happen to be composing Tom Cruise's new movie "Oblivion", which is directed by Joseph Kosinski, who also directed Legacy. Anyway, here's the credits:

1.) Outlands (OST)
Quorra Saves Sam (Sessions)

2.) Fall (OST)
Flynn Drops In (Sessions)

3.) Sunrise Prelude (Bonus Track, same on Sessions)

4.) Rectifier (OST)
C.L.U. Speech (Sessions)

5.) C.L.U. (OST)
Lightjets (Sessions)

6.) Flynn Lives (Same as OST & Sessions)

7.) Solar Sailor (OST)
End Credits, pt. II (Sessions)

Ans Toby Chu arranged "Flynn's Flashback", which is "Adagio for TRON" on the OST

Where is the Inception recording sessions? I Mean its great to have this complete scores but why inception its not even released, even the dark knight rises was released so why not inception

Sadly, m'friend, I don't think it will surface. All we've had were countless fake track lists.
