I gotta say that short film was spectacular even with I Phone 11, the score by Lorne Balfe fitted very well with the scenes introduced.I'd say that this anthem was pretty great for Zimmer to score a soccer team that has been alive for 25 years.Cheers guys, much appreciated!<br>In my mind I had some video interview though, as I always like watching those as well. I do wonder if there was an extra section on the home release of the movie where ideally there might be.Hans Zimmer is one of the biggest film composers working in the industry today.  He won an Academy Award for his work on The Lion King, and has been nominated for six other films including Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, and As Good As It Gets. With The Last Samurai he celebrates his 100th film score, and SoundtrackNet had an opportunity to talk with Hans a few weeks ago during a rare break in his busy schedule working on Something's Gotta Give.<br><br>You've scored many projects during your career, and The Last Samurai is being touted as your 100th film score…<br><br>Well, I'm terrible with math, so I'm not doing the counting. It could be more, it could be less – but apparently it's the 100th.<br><br>So how did you get involved with the project?<br><br>If you're lucky enough to get nominated for an Oscar, you get invited to the Oscar nominee's luncheon where they hand out these little nomination certificates. There are usually 150 people standing there, and people are invited up in alphabetical order, starting with the As. By the time they get to the Cs, everybody's already back at their table chatting and eating, and while the first people called get thunderous applause, you can imagine what it's like when your name starts with Z!<br><br>So Ed Zwick and I were standing there, waiting at one of these luncheons about four years ago, and we started talking to each other. I asked him what he was working on and he told me about this movie called The Last Samurai, which I thought sounded interesting and I asked him to send me a script. After the script arrived, I didn't hear from him for a long time and I thought he'd forgotten about me, not thinking about how difficult it is to set up a samurai movie these days. The other thing I liked about the project was that Tom Cruise was involved, so it was like returning home, since I've scored a bunch of his movies – I knew we were going to have a good time.<br><br>Did it end up that way?<br><br>Ed and his editor Steve Rosenblum are such gentlemen, so together and professional, and they basically did one cut of the film, screened it, and everyone loved their work. So after this, they had plenty of time to come and hang with me, and while I usually love the re-cutting process because it's a diversionary tactic to keep the director and editor out of my life, these guys were great to have around. <br><br>Of course, my sense of paranoia made me think that something was going wrong all the time, waiting for the other shoe to drop, as it were, but it never happened. Ed phoned this morning and I thought, "Oh my god – rewrite!" It's just how my brain works. But I think he and I feel a bit odd now: we've been seeing each other every day for months, and suddenly we're done. I completely understand why people have a problem finishing a movie, because there's something really nice about the process – completion is far more boring.<br><br>For Samurai, you used Japanese percussions and ethnic woodwinds, without getting too 'Japanese'.<br><br>My problem is that I feel Japanese music is really inaccessible to Western ears, and I was really struggling with this film initially, trying to figure out what I was doing. This idea popped into my head for using Western-style themes, but applying a Japanese aesthetic to them, which sounds great of course, until I had to ask myself what I meant! Actually, I think it's just my way of not overloading certain things with too many colors, or being geometrically precise about my cues and not making them too flowery.<br><br>The Tom Cruise character is one of those nasty drunks at the beginning, who obviously has some serious problems he's trying to deal with, or not deal with. He's obnoxious and restless, suffering sleepless nights and is very un-Tom. For me, this character's journey was about his need to earn tranquility and peace, so within the score there's this very romantic, overblown and passionate theme. It's like a juvenile way of dealing with life and death – the pain and liebestod.<br><br>However, to contrast with these very relentless themes, there are a number of stark, formal and sober pieces, because I wanted to take Tom's character on a journey. He comes from America and ends up in this foreign place where he doesn't speak the language or understand the culture. But at the end of the movie, I want the audience to think that there isn't a more beautiful place for him to be, that he is at home in Japan and finally at peace.<br><br>There are many useless acts of bravery we do out of misguided romanticism, and this movie is full of courageous and dignified acts of bravery. So I wanted to play off these acts, since both the American and Japanese cultures have a concept of heroism, and I just wanted to see if I could play with the nature of the two different concepts.<br><br>So you didn't want to do the stereotypical Japanese thing...<br><br>Absolutely not! Take Akira Kurosawa's Ran, for example, which has this brilliant score where Takemitsu writes Western music, but with an Eastern accent. Somebody asked me a few days ago why As Good As It Gets was European – why did I write a European score for a quintessentially American story? For me, it's because Jack Nicholson was crazy in the movie, and I felt one of the great things about America is how they always think we Europeans are crazy. So by writing a European-styled score, it's my way of saying that Jack is crazy, but it's alright!<br><br>How do you feel about people who criticize your work for not fitting into the time period, like Gladiator?<br><br>The reason I take these jobs is because I'm interested in foreign cultures, and every time I get to work on a movie I'm thrown into the adventure of whatever that culture is, the time, and wherever the story's taking place. So one of the things I'm very careful about is not to be historically correct to the culture, but, on the other hand, not to insult the underlying aesthetics of that culture either. I remember watching Chariots of Fire and thinking how brilliantly the music worked, never missing that it wasn't period instruments! I grew up listening to Bach played by a symphony orchestra – it's the wrong sized orchestra with the wrong instruments, but I don't think that's the point.<br><br>With Gladiator, Pietro Scalia brought in a CD saying "this is Ancient Roman music," and I said, "Says who? You went to the Ancient Roman music store and bought an Ancient Roman music CD? Bullshit!" We're not anthropologists. Look at he costumes Ridley Scott had: they were more Napoleonic than Roman, which was perhaps fitting since Napoleon had stolen all of his good ideas from the Romans regarding how to make his generals look cool – and so did Hitler! So I got criticized for making the "Entry into Rome" cue too Leni Riefenstahl – but that was the joke! I am allowed to have a sense of humor in my music!<br><br>Earlier this summer your credit on Pirates of the Caribbean was "Score Overproduced by". What was the deal with that?<br><br>Well, I thought honesty was a virtue! But seriously, Jerry Bruckheimer quite rightly asked me not to give him "that old-fashioned Pirate music," and Gore Verbinski, who I adore and did The Ring with, said, "Well, it is a pirate movie, so we have to disguise it." In the end, I spent a day and a half writing tunes, Klaus Badelt wrote a lot of stuff, and we rolled up our sleeves, got drunk, behaved in a debauched way, and produced a score!<br><br>There was a lot of criticism regarding that score, but in the end it had to serve the film - which it did. You seem to get a lot of criticism on any project you do.<br><br>I had the misfortune of going onto the Film Score Monthly web site recently to look something up and vanity made me type in my own name. I suddenly realized that you can't ever get it right. Who do people want me to be? The guy that writes Matchstick Men? Or the guy that writes The Rock? Or the guy that writes Driving Miss Daisy? My need is ultimately to write for myself. I mock myself and I'm ironic about the way I speak about it because if I take it too seriously, it would be a pompous and boring thing to do. But at the same time I take each note I write very seriously – none of them are random.<br><br>The Internet Movie Database always lists you as being attached to multiple projects, so I was curious, what's Sharktail?<br><br>I complained to Jeffrey Katzenberg that I couldn't cross any more Red Seas, or deal with any more horses that can't speak – I wanted to do one of the fun animated movies instead. There's also a hip-hop element in Sharktail, and I haven't been there yet, so it's new territory! King Arthur is still in production, and I literally just got the first bits of footage just before you came here.<br><br>Are you working on all of these projects simultaneously?<br><br>I'm thinking about them! I'm also working with Jim Brooks on his new comedy, Spanglish.<br><br>And speaking of comedies, you recently did Matchstick Men for Ridley, which had a very Nino Rota vibe to it....<br><br>And I gave him credit! I thought, what if Nino had written the theme and I was just doing the variations? But I bet I'm going to get criticized for that because it's not like Gladiator.<br><br>So when did you last have a vacation?<br><br>Well, I went to Japan for a couple of days at the end of November for the Japanese premiere of Samurai, but look, I love what I do! In January I'll travel to Morocco because Ridley will be shooting his next movie, Kingdom of Heaven, so that's like a holiday!<br><br>My family and I are going away at Christmas, and what we used to do would be to rent a house in the mountains and go on these skiing holidays. It would be a crappy house, not as nice as the one we live in, my wife was still going to the market, and we're still washing our plates – so it wasn't a vacation, it was a lot of work! It's taken us a long time, but we just figured it out: we're not practical with vacations – we're staying at hotels! But while the Zimmer family isn't talented when it comes to vacations, we're talented when it comes to work!<br><br>I sat through Samurai the other day, and for the first time watched the whole movie from top to tail with everything finished and completed. It felt really good, better than a vacation. But luckily there were enough things wrong for me to think that I learned something from the experience, and now I can't wait for the next project to try these new ideas out.<br><br>The soundtrack to The Last Samurai is available from Elektra Records, and the film is currently in theaters. Matchstick Men is available on Varese Sarabande Records.<br><br>With thanks to Chet Mehta at Chasen & Co, Jason Cienkus at Warner Brothers, and Nina Lynch and Mark Wherry at Media Ventures for helping with this interview. And, of course, special thanks to Hans.Mulan get his release... through Disney+, 4th September.
Mulan is being released on sept 4th. Can't wait to hear Harry's score!!!!Here's an interview about Last Samurai from Soundtrack.net https: //www.soundtrack. net/content/article/?id=112You can find an interview with Hans on his process for TLS on soundtrack.net somewhere, back in 2003 or 2004The tracklist they posted has 58 tracks and yours contains only 54<br>interesting thing, He never really spoke about Last Samurai. but you have to realize, even when He speaks, its not always the truth. <br><br>The only thing I know, in 2013 doing press for Rush, He really said the hardest job was Last Samurai, well its not true according to himself, if you watch the behind the scenes stuff from Matchstick Men from 2003, right there He says that he was working on 3 huge films, (tears of the sun / Pirates / last samurai) and Mathstick men was the absolute hardest for him.<br><br>also Ed Zwick talks about working with Hans on the dvd commentary sometimes, but nothing really fancy.<br><br>Im sure there is an interview for this film with him, since he was at the premier
I am struggling to find an interview where Hans speaks about this soundtrack. Does it even exist? <br>I spent the last hours digging but nothing. I always desired to hear some comments about it, like he does for the other works he's done.<br>I know it's a far stretch for Hans To release docu scores, but am really curious as to what Brave Miss World, Believer and Jalous of the Birds sound like...<br><br><br>@Mephariel<br>You can find Great Bear Rainforest on bleedingfingersmusic.com under Anze RozmanMondo only offered to send me a return label and a refund.

Okay, this may be a stupid question, but how in the world are four guys credited with additional music (not just additional arrangements)? Because the whole score sounded like arrangements of either Hans' Sketchbook suite or Hans'/JunkieXL's "Arcade" theme. I don't recall there being much "other music". It sounded mostly like arrangements of pre-existing material.


Meta2013-10-28 17:37:31
I have no idea Mike...

but you are correct...in hearing the entire score there is practically nothing that has been different from the Sketchbook/Arcade pieces....

All i can think of is since the movie is 2 hours my guess is they just had those other guys do their variations, which were actually nothing new, but rather just pieces of score "variations of the original themes" to fit into the movie....Maybe because Hans was too busy with Rush and Lone Ranger at the time to do it himself.

As for the variations? Not much...SMALL variations, like maybe an extended drum loop sequence, or extra beats in the Zod theme....Not much there.

Only piece that really stood out was the scene where they escape Zod's ship. THAT music sounded like a true variation...





Mike2013-10-28 19:09:53
Indeed, the Escape From Ship cue should've been on the album!

Did any of Geoff Zanelli's arrangements get used in the movie?


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-27 22:38:48
Probably not he worked at a very stage of the movie for 3 weeks but had to leave for Lone Ranger.

So his work somehow has influenced the result but he didn't work on any cue...

Who thinks Zimmer and co. will scrap Horner's theme for Spider-Man, and who thinks they'll keep it?


Mike2013-10-27 00:26:57
I hope the theme will stay! I like it and, personally, am tired of superhero movies getting new composers and losing thematic continuity (Iron Man 2 and 3, and probably the Thor/Captain America sequels). I feel almost certain that whether or not Horner's theme is dumped, his style will be. :(


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-27 00:45:56
Unfortunately, I don't doubt that they'll scrap it. When's the last time a new composer came into a series and actually kept the predecessor's themes? Um...Brian Tyler's Rambo...John Ottman on Superman Returns, I guess? They couldn't even do it properly in the Harry Potter series, what makes you think Hans will do it here?

It's a really annoying trend. I wish franchises would make a bit more of an effort to keep the music continuous. Thank God for Howard Shore in that respect.


Prott2013-10-27 00:56:02
OT: Actually a good recent example is Fast and Furious 6 - Lucas Vidal did an amazing job in keeping the musical continuity (both thematic and sound-wise).


Mike2013-10-27 02:23:00
Superman Returns couldn't have called itself a sequel to the old films if it didn't keep the themes. Those themes are inextricably bound up with that series.

Ds reply Replies: 2 || 2013-10-25 12:21:08
Just saw it on blu-ray, it reminded me how amazing Hans' score actually is. I remember being a bit disappointed about the use of the music in the movie, but now i really think it's perfectly in phase with the pictures.

... and I definitely WANT a proper music version of the escape from the ship, which is a really cool track. I wonder why it's been left off the official release, it's not like there wasn't enough space on the 2nd disc!


Mike2013-10-25 23:54:02
Am I the only person who thinks that the music as Jor El guides Lois through the ship doesn't sound like Zimmer at all (which means it probably isn't)?

He is really harsh with the remote control composers

He (they) certainly have an opinion about Hans & Co....
I will stop there :-p


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-21 09:33:48
I think Clemmensen is a really good reviewer, but occasionally for some reason he gets hangups about how a score HAS TO sound, and becomes really closed-minded about it, and if the score doesn't sound exactly that way he gives it low ratings no matter what the music's merits otherwise. Case in point, Pirates of the Caribbean not sounding like something Korngold would write. And he's harsh with RC composers only if they just stick to the formula and sound like Zimmer, which is a lot of the time, but when they branch out and start developing their own style (like Powell, Gregson-Williams, Mancina, even Jackman) he gives them positive reviews too.

But sometimes he's overly harsh just to make a point, like with Man of Steel. I'm no fan but it's certainly worth more than one star.


tomPoland2013-10-21 11:48:05
Maybe because S deserves a score that will be really great, not average? And obvious?

isildur2013-10-21 16:00:26
I don't want to talk about his reviewing abilities but when it comes to Zimmer's scores one can always observe that at least one para is dedicated to what Zimmer has said about some other composer at sometime and what Zimmer has said about his approach to some score. Then he simply bashes him for saying those things and says he doesn't know anything about that (e.g. American music) and recently he is talking about how Zimmer's "ghost writers" are not doing their job properly. Meh.


Mike2013-10-21 16:15:13
I agree with Edmund, if I can rephrase his first sentence: Clemmensen CAN be a really good reviewer, when modern Zimmer and Zimmer-sounding scores aren't being reviewed. He doesn't need to like Zimmer's music these days, but I think it goes without saying that he's unreasonably harsh sometimes. I don't get how he can say there's absolutely NOTHING soaring about "Flight" or "What Are You Going to Do When You're Not Saving the World?". Sure, they're not the John Williams score, but they're not trying to be, and in and of themselves I'd say they're powerful pieces of music.

Still, I do enjoy his reviews of other composers' works and I think he does a very good job writing about those ones. I just tend to steer clear of his Zimmer reviews unless I think there's a chance he might review it somewhat positively.


Mike2013-10-21 16:16:35
And if you'd really like to censor that post since it has The Forbidden Name, go ahead. But I don't think anything unreasonable was written in there. :)


MacArthur2013-10-21 17:10:55
Funny I thought That When Zimmer was Interviewed he said he wanted an american sound I thought that he hit the nail on the head.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-21 17:42:32
lol, Hybrid, what's with the vendetta? You might not agree with him but you can't deny his skills as a reviewer otherwise. He knows what he's talking about. I wouldn't say he's always fair or levelheaded when it comes to Zimmer, but the point of a review is not to be "fair"...it's to give your opinion and justify it. Which he does better than most.

So if you have a cue sheet, does that mean that a page can be made for the complete score? Or does the music need to leak first?

I know this isn't perfect. I'll be happy if you correct the list.


Mike2013-08-10 18:21:21
If it's what I think it is, then "Escape From Ship" was a cool cue.


Anonymous2013-08-12 19:38:09
Do you have a length for each cue?


Mike2013-08-19 14:50:00
Guitwo, look here!

Mike : Look where? There is no link ^ ^


Mike2013-08-19 19:19:20
I was referring to Hybrid Soldier's list of cues at the top of this particular comment list.


Anonymous2013-08-19 19:49:49
oh ok :)
Do you have some informations about the complete score ? :)


GR2013-08-19 22:55:05
Too bad the track "ESCAPE FROM SHIP" is not on the album (I assume this is the track used when Jor-El helps Lois to escape from Zod's ship). Sounds great in the movie and it seems to be a theme that isnt heard elsewhere in the movie.


SanAntonioSpurs2013-09-14 23:29:31
Hybrid, Do you have information about this?? -Complete Score-


Mike2013-09-17 02:16:07
Indeed, GR, if "Escape From Ship" were on the album, I would see no need whatsoever for an expanded score. Every noteworthy cue and suite would be on the album.

In this "Making of" video with Zimmer, the Superman theme as heard at the beginning of "Flight" plays at 2:43, but it has the same background percussion as "What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving the World?". This variation isn't heard anywhere on the OST. It's sorta cool, if you like the music.

You guys remember back when Trailer 3 came out and we heard Zimmer's theme for the first time? Well it started being called "An Ideal of Hope"--where did that title come from?


Mike2013-08-30 16:54:39
In addition to Anonymous' question, I'm wondering: who wrote the music for trailer 3 and trailer 4 of The Dark Knight Rises? I'm guessing Trailer 3 was Lorne Balfe, but Trailer 4 was almost like the underlying rhythm of the album track "Gotham's Reckoning" together with "Time" from Inception and the Bane chant. It was a really neat piece of music.


MacArthur2013-08-30 17:21:25
I think if I'm not mistaken Two steps from hell did the first trailer but I'm not sure. correct me if I'm wrong.


antovolk2013-09-08 13:45:26
I called it that when I first ripped the track from the trailer, and the name stuck :P


Anonymous2013-09-09 16:03:12
Huh, nice. Great piece of music too.

There is no spoon.


Russel2013-09-07 07:32:53
I was wondering if there was news, we knew about Oblivion's Isolated track before the release of the movie on Blu-ray, I thought maybe this would get a Isolated release as well. I think all movies should have one, with no sfx, especially musicals!

Yes exactly what i posted.


MacArthur2013-09-04 17:25:17
I disagree


Mike2013-09-04 17:29:34
Drunkenmunkey's comment is humorous enough, but I'm seriously growing tired of the BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMM joke. Besides Inception, Zimmer scores don't really have that problem as much as people say.


MacArthur2013-09-04 17:33:05
Agreed! Listen to The Da Vinci Code Not there or even Sherlock Holmes. Now granted it's there a little bit in this score but not that much.


Edmund Meinerts2013-09-05 08:47:37
@MacArthur Well duh it isn't in Da Vinci or Sherlock, those both came out before Inception.

Zimmer hasn't been too bad with it, he uses it but not excessively. It's the copycats that get really annoying. Battleship is probably the worst of it so far, although Elysium recently by Ryan Amon definitely overused it as well. Personally I don't think it was that great a tactic in the first place.


MacArthur2013-09-05 17:24:37
See your point. Balfe Is the Worst in my opinion. And I didn't think that Battleship was that bad. Balfe I think does that in Almost all his scores

Mike reply Replies: 5 || 2013-08-29 19:03:49
I think the part of the 28 minute suite from about 4:00-19:30 was put together in a very genius way. The Krypton music is very ominous and unsettling, then it segues into Clark Kent's innocent but fragile piano theme, then the piano theme continues but with the underlying heroism of the Superman theme. This lends a sense of hope after all the ominous Krypton music. The heroic take on the Clark theme then goes back for a bit into the fragility of the piano, before finally going once again into the heroic Superman theme, this time in all its radiance. Well done, Zimmer.


MacArthur2013-08-30 00:24:45
This Is Clark Kent Is also part of it


Mike2013-08-30 03:06:59
Indeed. Well, it's technically an alternate version, because the version of the Clark Kent theme with the Superman percussion behind it has more pronounced percussion in the Sketchbook track, but it is essentially the same music. Speaking of that, why is "This is Clark Kent" even on disc 1? It wasn't in the film and, as you point out, it is in the 28 minute suite. I wonder if it was going to be in the movie then got taken out?


MacArthur2013-08-30 03:22:11
Hey Did you see the Bible Score Hans went from main theme to actual Composer


Mike2013-08-30 14:50:21

Mike2013-08-29 18:52:04
He wants to know what music plays in the End Credits of the film once "What Are You Going to Do When You Are Not Saving the World?" is concluded.

I hope we'll get the isolated score as a bonus on the blu-ray. It'd be great to watch the pictures with music only, a better way to appreciate Hans' work. They did it for Oblivion, why not for MoS? It has an outstanding score and Hans spent days (weeks?) promoting it!
