Because they didn't work direcly in this score, but their material from the previous one was reused.Does anyone know why some of the composer names are in brackets? Thanks!thanks4:05 of "STEALTH" some of the best soulful action music I've heard from a Zimmer score. I wonder who wrote that particular section. This the type of stuff I would play trying to rush a pregnant woman to the hospitalIn case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.<br><br>Job well done, my friend.
@Hybrid <br>You don't add anymore Trevor Morris things ?Probably for chronological purposes<br>even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that timei saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene.<br>===============================<br><br><br>I agree. <br><br>And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.<br><br>People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.<br><br>It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...<br><br>It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.<br>===========================<br><br><br>I totally get what you're saying. I also get kinda frustrated when a "big" track overshadows an entire score. The best recent examples are IMO the Transformers scores. I don't blame folks for gravitating towards the epic sound and the power anthems, but A LOT of subtle, equally great tracks end up getting completely ignored. And just like you, they're usually my favorite tracks. <br><br>But why most people don't think like us?<br><br>The reason I think is because those "big tracks" are presented - most of the time - during the most memorable moments in those movies. They immediately get people's attention. They're stuck in their mind along with those iconic images. And I think by nature, people are more attracted to the big and "in your face". For most casual listeners the more subtle tracks work in the context of the movie and they absolutely do notice them while watching the actual film. But unlike you and I they don't feel the need to listen to them separately. They're too busy paying attention to the "big track". That goes even for some score fans.<br><br>While tracks like the Star War theme, the Indy theme, the Transformers theme, the Gladiator theme, the Godfather theme, the Armageddon theme, the Pirates theme, the Lord of the Rings theme are so big, melodic abd easily digestable that folks simply can't resist them. And when there are vocals involved as well (like Gladiator) it's even better, because people treat it as a full-blown song. An emotional song that they can listen to over and over again.<br><br>The subtle tracks simply can't win against that. Sadly....<br><br>By the way, speaking of The Island, My Name is Lincoln (as much as I like it) is not my favorite track of the score. The more subtle opening track (The Island Awaits You) and especially the Lima One Alpha theme are my personal favorite tracks. Of course, they're nowhere near My Name is Lincoln, in terms of popularity.<br>Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?
Yeah that is true, canít argue there lol<br><br>And is it me or does ďCalypso Must Be ReleasedĒ sound like Black Hawk Down?To be fair there is a lot of King Arthur in At World's End too. Just the general feeling you get from the action tracks in both scores is virtually identical. Hell, one of the main themes from King Arthur even appears when Bootstrap Bill remembers that Will is his son.@MrTweedy<br>Thatís totally fine, everyone has their own favorite HZ scores, which is awesome!<br><br>Itís funny though, I feel like DMC is far more schizophrenic than AWE. Now donít get me wrong, I absolutely love DMC. Itís the score that got me into Hans Zimmer. But still, I feel like a major part of that score is note-for-note reprises of cues/themes from COTBP. Not to mention the temp tracking of King Arthur.<br><br>AWE always felt far more original to me, especially considering that the entire tone of the music shifts from the ďrockínírollĒ sound of the first two to a more traditional score (at least by Hans Zimmer standards lol)@MrTweedy<br><br>Just curious, what scores do you considered to be Zimmer's best?The Pinnacle of Hans' career?<br>Although I really like this score, I don't agree. But hey, I know it's just a matter of opinion, okay? ;)<br><br>Of course it shows Hans strengths in almost every area (action, drama, romance, comedy...) but for me it's too much of a medley of previous works, without much personality.<br>It feels a bit like a palette with too many colors. From the action sequences borrowed from Drop Zone, to the Morricone inspirations for Jack's Sequences, to Gladiator's duduk that ended up there with no real reason, to a beautiful Love Theme that brings another new shape to the sonic identity... it's like the score sometimes goes schizophrenic.<br><br>Though each individual idea is really enjoyable to listen to, I think Hans has made scores that are much more cohesive and enjoyable as a whole!
i also think it is an underrated score. especially the action music has a couple of nice touches. i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene. the emotional music is nothing ground breaking, but a lovely listen.Y'know, it's funny. The big names that always get the most attention in film music are often not my favorite tracks of the scores they represent. Now We Are Free, Arrival to Earth, Like A Dog Chasing Cars, Star Wars Main Theme, Indiana Jones Main Theme, Infinite White, One Day, Circle of Life, The Fellowship. Though they are the most well known, they're usually nowhere near the peak of quality of their scores. <br><br><br>I noticed this the most in Hans Zimmer's concerts (not World of Hans Zimmer mind you). The parts he played from The Dark Knight Trilogy in particular usually had the least substance. Just the bombastic tracks. The only choice I agreed with was Time from Inception. There was no Am I Not Merciful, A Watchful Guardian, Sunrise Over Pride Rock, none of that. <br><br><br>Even with Star Wars, the main theme and the Force theme are solid pieces of music, but neither come close to the beauty of Princess Leia's theme, or the wondrous Yoda theme. <br><br><br>Same with Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship Reunited, Very Old Friends, Gollum, and The Breaking of the Fellowship are much more substantial pieces than The Fellowship Theme alone in my opinion. <br><br><br>Can't say anything about My Name is Lincoln because I haven't finished The Island score yet, but yeah. I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.Thanks guys, will check out these cues.Hmm, aside from "The Guardian Suite' I don't think I've heard any other tracks from this score. And I have a feeling I'm not the only one....lol.<br><br>Speaking of.........I would most definitely put "The Guardian Suite' right up there next to "Now We Are Free" and "My Name is Lincoln". It's *that* good and powerful. Shame that the movie is not as popular as The Island and Gladiator. If it was, that suite would've been one of the most popular film score tracks with millions of views on YouTube. It certainly deserves it.Very underrated score. As already pointed out by a couple of reviewers, it's a nice, little throwback to MV/RC's Golden Years and Trevor's own scores from 1997 to 2002. Give it a listen if you can. It's not long and it's worth it.

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.

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
