Finally got a chance to listen to this one all the way through (after seeing the film) and I can definitely see why HZ is proud of it. It's funny that he says "Inferno" is his most experimental/dark score because honestly, I think The Fan takes the cake.
You can hear a lot of obvious foreshadowing of some of Zimmer's later work; the piano/heartbeat effect from Hannibal, the electronics of Chappie, even some of the whispering for Electro. Also props to the beautiful incorporation of the main theme in "Letting Go"
My only gripe is that this doesn't belong with a better film, I feel like more people would discover and appreciate it alongside something like The Rock or Crimson Tide.
Oh, and forgot to mention the EXTREMELY obvious inspiration for The Kraken in "Gil's End"!
The Fan expanded score is ultimately one of the BEST soundtrack Hans have ever composed. 1996 was indeed the Year of Hans. "Broken Arrow", "The Rock"... and now, The Fan. Main Titles and Game Tension are just a few of my favorite tracks and Terrence Trent D'Arby (Sign Your Name, Wishing Well, etc.) have done a tremendous job performing "Letting Go" and it was, in my POV, emotional.
Great score! The main theme is so simple and efficient in the movie and outside!
I noticed a thing : Transformers "Skorponok" theme has a lot of similarities with some cues of this score. Example : Gil Falling Down : 1:00 - 2:00 Sacré steve! :D
What's this? The Transformers score sounding like something older? The devil you say?!
I just "found" this myself; looking forward to giving it a listen once I've got my damn finals out of the way...
I don't said the devil by the way! :D
I know, I know, it's just an expression. Jablonsky's scores are known for helping themselves to the occasional idea or theme from a previous score, so this doesn't really come as a surprise to me, is all. ;)
Before being blamed, Steve would need to have anything to do with Skorponok...
So is Skorponok really a solo Trevor Morris cue? Not Jablonsky/Morris, but just Morris?
Oh Morris did work on it, and probably was not alone... Anyway... I told The Fan is the father of many scores... :)
I thought Harry did more work on this. And Jeff Rona did a few cues toward the end, involving rain/water (since he had worked on White Squall)
Harry didn't write on The Fan... He only conducted it...
Rona worked on a few cues like The Rescue or Fans Are Losers...
Thank you for the clarification.
FINALLY!!! Excellent stuff, just great. Game Tension is superb!!
I also thought, that Harry Gregson-Williams was more involved in this score, because a couple of tracks have the Enemy Of The State sound. Harry also said in his Tony Scott tribute on facebook the following:
"I first met Tony way back on his rather grim movie 'The Fan'. You could say it was on that score that Hans Zimmer passed scoring duties of his movies over to me."
But maybe he meant that in a different way. Nonetheless it is a fantastic score by Hans.
Harry meant The Fan was Hans' last score for Tony and he handled after...
And yeah, the big EOTS rips are just temptrack...
ummm how were there EOTS temptracks in The Fan if EOTS hadn't come out yet??
