"Not to mention the huge chunks of silence at the beginning and end (and sometimes middle) of tracks"<br><br>Edmund Meinerts, Sessions without chunks of silence at the beginning and end was released on rutracker site about month agoGreat. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!
Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...If there'd only been the first movie prior, I think I'd get it a bit more. But the 2nd film did have a proper score release, so the only reason at this point is that it just isn't on Nick's mind after all the delays.Whoa, why not? Every obscure random shit gets released these days but a Hans Zimmer score to a fairly big mainstream movie doesn't?
I doubt there'll be a score release.The Spongebob movie is being released next Friday here in Canada, could we see a release of the album soon? Assuming of course that there will be an album at all /: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 we just have Hans not be a synonym for complacency but a signpost for a truly revolutionary approach to creativity?

He did well in this score, anything else he has done since Inception is pure corporate money mongering. Shameful.

It is endlessly amusing to see those videos of HZ talk about his creative process. Well, McDonalds does the same.

HZ is the McDonalds of film composition, except when he detaches from it. It is so sad to see such an artist become such a corporate figure.

So everybody talks about No Time for Caution, and that is a great cue, but I think an underappreciated track from this score is Cornfield Chase. It sounds so whimsical and uplifting. It captures the wonder and fun of childhood really well. The fact that it's so driven by the pipe organ makes it even better. I love how Hans incorporated the organ into most of the tracks.


Moggyman2018-08-18 18:35:31
Mike, I definitely agree with you. I think that Cornfield Chase is an excellent example of Zimmer's diversity in music. It shows that He can compose themes that are adventurous and light-hearted rather than being so dark, which is quite different from a lot of his works including his other collaborations with Nolan.


Mephariel2018-08-18 23:19:07
I don't think Cornfield Chase is underappreciated because that is the cue everyone is talking about besides No Time for Caution and Mountains. The most underappreciated cue to me is Dust. The amount of mystery, wonder, and curiosity from that cue is amazing.


mpolonest1232018-08-18 23:26:31

Mountains too... The Tick Tock suite.

"Our World" is a fav' of mine too, how could they not release it ?


Mike2018-08-19 01:59:55
Dust, Who's They, and Our World are other favorites, for sure. Our World is some fantastic ambient music. Before the film was released, I expected most of the score to sound like "Our World."


mpolonest1232018-08-19 02:04:29
“Our World” is a pretty amazing track, the “Murph” suite is also incredible just in how it gradually builds to that finale...


Mike2018-08-19 02:08:15
Hybrid, do you know if any suites were written besides the ones that they released?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-19 09:01:35
Well with that score we got pretty lucky in term of theme suites being released, with 5 of them. I don't know for sure if there's more but I think we have it covered.

Has anyone ever explain why the movie version of "No Time For Caution" is not in any commercial album?

I am still waiting for a future release.


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-26 22:05:04
Because they made dozens of versions of it and Hans' final one is the one released on the OST.

The film version was assembled by music editors with stems of other cues at the very last minute.


Mike2016-07-27 03:11:03
Don't wait for a release. Not to be a spoil-sport, but it won't happen. What they gave us is what we're getting. That said, so many fans have recreated the film version that we can all be satisfied, really.

Now if only fans would do a solid edit of "Batman Chased"... still waiting for that one, 4 years on... lol

Anonymous reply Replies: 2 || 2016-03-18 19:36:56
Zimmer should go solo again for Dunkirk. I know it's over-talked about here, but it was a real treat hearing Zimmer without five others in Interstellar. If he did even one score "alone" every so often, it would help fans keep track of what's genuinely HIS musical voice. I'm also not sure it's a coincidence that Interstellar was one of his best scores for a few years. Anyone agree?


Boldizar 2016-03-27 08:10:57
I agree completely. I also think it is extremely dishonest when film composers get sold credit when they used "not so" ghost writes for some cues. Interstellar was good because of the music, but also because it was honest and genuine. No Ramin Djwadi chained up in the back room with Balfe.


soi2016-05-10 08:01:59
I don't agree with Boldizar. There's nothing dishonest about what Zimmer and his friends do. They're pretty damn open about not caring about exact credits. But I do agree that interstellar was really cool because it felt like you were listening to something personal and his voice really shined.

The collaborations are hit and miss for me, pirates of the caribbean is great, bunch of talented composers going at but you could still hear one voice tying it all together, kung fu panda 3 on the other hand was mostly boring, only a few tracks like the second half of jaded or legend of kai worth a repeat listen.

John J. Rambo reply Replies: 0 || 2016-04-18 04:02:19
This was addressed a few years ago, but unfortunately this doesn't seem to be have been escalated:

Why does every track (I own the flac & cd version of the soundtrack) have a spike at ~15.7 KHz? Every(!) track has a high-frequency noise throughout the whole track.
You can easily visualize this when using a spectrogram. Because it's on each track, I can't believe this was intended.

There was a huge discussion when the album came out in 2014 in reddit's audio-engineering subreddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/audioengineering/comments/2mszh4/wh ats_up_with_this_spike_at_around_157khz_on_the/?sort=top

It's sad that no one from Hans' side responded to that issue.

Not sure if this is the place, but I guess Warner Bros just announced Nolan's new film, "Dunkirk." It's a WWII war movie. Hmm, It'll be interesting to hear Zimmer's take on WWII again.

considering it's a summer blockbuster and doesn't feature Americans(takes place in 1940)...no oscar


Zimson2015-12-29 21:09:43
Yeah since it's going to be an action-thriller a nomination for best film is very unlikely. However you can't deny the academy likes period dramas.

If Hans Zimmer wants us to hear his scores on big speakers, then why won't he provide us with the needed quality of his tracks to play it on our big speakers.. None of his (louder) scores have an isolated score option on the blu-ray of the movies (only inception has a 5.1 selection on the bonus disc). I still don't understand why he won't release complete versions of his scores, in either 2.0 or 5.1 (just like the Lord of the Rings collector's soundtrack collection). People clearly want it, but instead we get shitty cd's with half of the tracks missing and some are released as bonus tracks in 256kbps.. Why Hans?!

Just checking in to see if anyone's heard or read any more about anything coming out? I know it's effectively a over and done deal, because we've never received a complete Zimmer score, but I'm still hoping for one - or something with more music.

I wish Zimmer had more control over his music - or care, really. I guess as an artist, once you're done with something, it's time to move on, but he just really seems to be "eh, I'm passed that" in every interview he does about it - that or it's him saying "We'll see" or "It's up to Water Tower" or "Eh, it's out there somewhere. Who knows." Howard Shore does the same thing with the Hobbit complete scores - he just seems so "whatever" about the whole thing when anyone asks him, or that he has no clue how much there is - Shore even stated that the release we have now for "An Unexpected Journey" is pretty much complete - which, would be true, if it had the other 40 minutes worth of stuff that's not on it. Why do scorers seem so oblivious to what they've made? Or careless?

I can't tell if Zimmer just doesn't care, understand, or has no control over it, which upsets me. I'm not hating on him - I just wish I had a way to listen to that gorgeous score, even though I'm not entitled to it. Being a fan of film score sucks.


Ds2015-05-21 23:58:24
Hum I get your point but what cue are we missing here? I do not remember any missing piece of music, the release + the promotional FYC seemed quite exhaustive. The only problem is a damaged track (which has been repaired by fans) and an alternate track (the film mix has been recreated by fans). So in the specific case of Interstellar I don´t understand your complain...


Boldizar2015-05-23 19:06:15
We won't see anything for years if ever. Alan the best you can do is to get the FYC CD and merge the tracks not on the "official" releases. Unfortunately it will never be lossless due to the FYC cd source. The only missing cues are First Handshake and the Credits which are friend has on YouTube with the NTFC film mix and a fixed QC.

Ds, the ISP is missing quite a bit cue wise.


Alan2015-05-24 04:28:47
Ah, yes, Boldizar - you hit what was going to be my response to Ds right on the nose: the problem of them not being lossless. This score needs to sound as good as possible, as far as I'm concerned, and tracks being lossless is a must - so that is why I hold out some small, tiny hope for an official complete release. And for the fan edits, they are fine, and the folks who worked on them are fantastic, but I'd still like something straight from Zimmer.


bro2015-05-24 09:54:59
I made most of the fan edits you are talking about, and I still agree. I'd like to have the original, missing / lost tracks in my possession just as much as you guys would.


Ds2015-05-24 14:08:45
Alan, in fact we actually got "something straight from Zimmer", and it was the crappy No Time For Caution demo released on iTunes. Something coming straight from Hans doesn't necessarily mean it's better than other people's arrangement...


Hybrid Soldier2015-05-24 14:31:27
It's not a demo... lol


Anyway, First Handshake, seriously ? It's just a music editing.

We have all we need from Interstellar. There's a pile a HZ scores that would deserve some extra stuff. I crossed IS off the list ! :P

Yeah I don't think getting "extra stuff" whatever is the problem, people mostly just keep bitching for a not-damaged Quantifiable Connection. The NTFC stuff is mostly resolved at this point, and I wouldn't say the official NTFC track was a demo. It's looking like the track was intentionally mastered the way it was. And I like it.


Mike2015-09-18 14:55:43
I don't necessarily mean to resurrect this debate (after the track came out, the vitriol was HORRENDOUS), but, referring to Ds's comment, am I the only one who does *not* have a problem with the original No Time For Caution track?

I agree the film version is much better, the track we got does sound "demo-ish" in parts (the fade out/organ crescendo at the very end is what struck me), and the volume is uneven (super quiet at the start, loud at the end, but that's easily fixable with the right software). But all in all, the track still gives me the same sense of emotion/excitement/suspense that the film version does.

it doesn't really matter since the music is still totally HZ in this score but do we know which scenes Andrew and Steve did programming on? just curious

Am I the only one consistently reminded of the late James Horner whenever I listen to Cornfield Chase? It makes me think, for example, of Cracking the Russian Codes from A Beautiful Mind... it's got that same "flourishy," constantly-moving instrumentation, it picks up with a kinetic piano motif, and even has a super-abrupt ending. Cornfield Chase is actually one of my favorite Zimmer cues in a while.

Hybrid, do you know if it was an intentional homage to Horner's sound?


Hybrid Soldier2015-08-29 14:28:21
Absolutely no idea !


Bioscope2015-08-29 16:13:24
My Horner moments cam from space scenes. Very Apollo 13....


Zimson2015-08-29 21:20:13
Never came to my mind. Interstellar is way to heavy on the electronics to sound anything like Horner imo. If there are any similarities I could find in another score, it's maybe Her by arcade fire. The overall theme of that score is piano and electronic pads, but it's still far away from sounding anything like interstellar.


Mike2015-08-29 21:24:31
You should still consider pairing it with the track I mention, for comparison's sake...It just seems like a style imitation, IMO. ;)


Boldizar2015-08-30 00:27:21
Speaking of Her, I really wish that score got a release (even a promo one). Great film.

Speaking of Her, that score got a release (a promo one). It's the FYC.


Frank2015-08-30 01:06:01
I agree. Coward reminds me of Horner's "crushing piano"


Edmund Meinerts2015-08-31 15:59:15
The rolling low piano in Interstellar definitely reminds me of Horner. I see what you mean with Cornfield Chase, although I don't think it's particularly striking (or even intentional). Flying Drone, on the other hand, reminds me of JNH's Signs!


Boldizar2015-09-15 02:00:36
Thanks for heads up Anon. I did not know it ever existed but was able to get a copy dirt cheap. :)


Anonymous2015-09-15 16:26:40
I guess I'm the odd one out. To me the score is closer to being a Da Vinci Code sibling than being a James Horner homage.

Right... so I got my blu-ray pre-order in today, a day early, and I can't help but notice (or think I do, at least) that the loudest parts of the movie, where the music really used to drown stuff out (that I, personally, loved but everyone else complained about) has been dumbed down a bit? I realize my home theater will not sound even so much as an ounce like the IMAX I saw the film in multiple times, but damn... I really feel like those scenes that really BAM sent the score home. Scenes I am thinking of are the bigs ones: Mountains, Mann's betrayal, Docking. They're just... not loud anymore. The voices and the sound effects are great! But the music... it's toned down a bit.

Has anyone else had this issue with theirs? I even checked out the iTunes version and it's got the same volume control as well... does anyone think Nolan succumbed (or was forced) to obey a few complaints and "turned" the music down? Man I really just hope it's my system....


Adam2015-03-31 07:43:20
I will check for you later today Alan!

I downloaded the 1080p IMAX torrent a few weeks ago and all the volume seemed fine to me! People must have been crazy saying the music was too loud


NotSoAnonymous2015-03-31 08:08:45
I'm waiting for my copy, but of all the download versions I've come across it has been substantially altered. I was upset too.


Laurens2015-04-01 19:38:03
I watched parts of the blu-ray yesterday with headphones on, and I didn't notice a significant drop in music volume, it might have been taken down a bit to make sure everything still sounds good on less speakers than 5 (and not blow everything up with the very complex parts, I don't know)? I did notice this on the iTunes version, where the organ in the docking scene messed up the audio track when it got very loud, I was kind of disappointed by that because it just does not sound good when the audio starts cracking up because of its own volume. So I was just glad that the blu ray did not have this issue...


Alan2015-04-01 21:56:04
Thanks Adam - let me know how that IMAX torrent goes. Also, could you explain the different it would have apart from the blu-ray?

NotSoAnonymous - I agree. I tried a few versions, like iTunes and what not, and they're quiet as well.

Laurens - I think Laurens might be on to something here... it would make sense to "dumb" down things a bit because well... I doubt very few people in the world have a home IMAX and copying that format straight to home video might be... well, disastrously noisy. So maybe this was an attempt to make the home viewing doable? Still a little upset at how much that first blast in Mountains has be turned down... it's nowhere near as big and powerful of a scene (to me) now.

In other news I tried to configure things a little differently in my setup, but I can't test it as my second disc came scratched so I sent it back to Amazon (they keep sending my broken shit) but when I get my replacement copy in, I will try it again and let everyone know. Who knows - maybe this is just time to get new speakers.



Ray2015-04-14 00:12:02
Hello.
Best movie, best music.
But now i will speak about the movie discs. The sound on dvd and bluray is weak. English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 on the bluray, but not as good as the original cinema sound mix. The music is quiet, the effect is quiet. On the discs, in the duststorm, when they are closing the door in house, the windsound is end. But in the cinema, the windsound continue after closing the door. Almost vibrate the house.
This is just one example of the many. I am very dissatisfied. The bluray and dvd dont give the original feeling of the Interstellar movie. How can i get the original (cinema) sound mix? Please help!


Boldizar2015-04-14 20:56:16
I listened/watched with my 5.1 setup for theater mode (aka loud). the Bluray sounds good. You a 5.1 system for the sound to actually be 5.1 and the subwoofer is a huge part of it.


Ray2015-04-15 02:16:27
I listen and watch on 5.1 pc speaker at home. Not perfect. But i think, not this is the problem.
The cinema soundtrack and dvd-bluray soundtrack are different. Different mixing.
I watched this movie in cinema 4 times.
Now i can compare cinema track and disc track, because i compare a cam recorded movie to dvd-bluray movie. The sound of cam version is distort and not clean of course, but the sound mixing is better in cam version (cinema version). For example the duststorm windsound after closed door. This is just one example of the many.
Unfortunately DD2.0 and DD5.1 and DTS-HD MA5.1 are different from cinema "version". This best version is lost for me.


Laurens2015-04-18 11:16:34
I know this is a bit of a late response, but I can't find three damn hours every day to watch this movie :p lol. Still, I have watched it over various speaker sets, headphones and everything, and Alan is indeed right about the music being toned down. Especially during the mountains part, that first blow is very disappointing indeed. Still, the sound effects almost tore my windows apart, so it's definitely the way this release was deliberately mixed. I still think that, however in the theatrical the music version was incredibly loud at some points (no complaints though, loved it) they didn't find it suitable for the home release, or they wanted to avoid complaints about the music drowning out the dialogue (which was a common complaint about the theatrical version, I could understand everything just fine but yeah, we have subtitles here in the Netherlands so.....). However, there were also moments where the music surprised me a bit in volume, compared to the big swells (i.e. just after Dr. Mann says "... few men have been" and the organ kicks in or the launch/detach music) so I don't think this is a production malfunction of some sort.


Ulifox2015-04-26 12:47:18
Hey Alan!

You are quite correct. The Score AND Effects have been toned down in those scenes. I was prepared to lower the volumen when that scenes came, but no need.
To be honest, the sound mix in the Blu-ray is better balanced.
It's like The Da Vinci Code Score, some parts were too loud ("over edited" I like to say).


Alan2015-05-11 23:32:59
Laurens, yeah, I figured this toning down was on purpose, 1. because so many complained about the sound in the theatre and 2. like you said, maybe it didn't work right for home viewing - either way, it makes me incredibly sad. I've watched the movie now at home tripled than what I had in the theatre, and still every time something is turned down, I am sorely disappointed - I just can't seem to get used to it.

Ulifox, I'm glad you enjoy it! Maybe one day I can get used to it haha!


Ray2015-05-14 01:35:12
My opinion also, that the music is low. Must be obtain the theatre movie sound disc. Sorry for my english.


Ray2015-05-14 01:39:47
The music volume is low.

Did you listen through the whole track? They both have similar cues at the start.

It says watertower music. I thought they sounded really similar and it never got to the main theme. It wasn't stay. I bought the CD like a month or two ago so I know exactly how it sounds


Anonymous2015-05-04 22:23:12
Are you sure? Cause from what I hear the Watertower version is the "good" one. Dreaming of the Crash and Stay are similar, you're sure that Dreaming of the Crash is pressed on there twice?

I know this question does not really belong in this thread specifically because there are more HZ-scores that the support the Headphone X app, but I ask it here anyway because I was just listening to the Interstellar score in '11.1 surround sound' and I am wondering if it's just me or does the stereo mix of the score sound way better than this 'remarkable technology'? I mean, sure the app makes it sound a little bit more surround-like but everything just sounds very hollow and not really clear, like I am listening to the music while my ears are stuffed. When then switch to the normal (say the iTunes version) of the score, everything sounds way better (and I have tried this over various headphones and I experience the same thing with all of them. Did anyone also notice this or do I happen to own three crappy headphones (which I am very convinced I do not :p) and am I missing a breathtaking experience here?

I am suspect sure the XApp files are lossy which really defeats the purpose.

I currently own the intstellar light priojection vrsion of the soundtrack it is not listed on there, thats why i asked about this particular track, is there anyway of getting the complete score ,as i understood that this was the complete version , but it appears not sadly


Laurens2015-04-30 15:43:36
The complete score was released on the FYC site of Paramount (just google 'paramount guilds 2014 interstellar score' or something like that) so you should be able to find that. Mind that this is the score as it appears in the movie so you won't find any bonus content in the complete score like the illuminated edition includes. This means that day one dark cannot be found on the complete score (which has terrible audio quality if you ask me, but that aside) and I can't seem to find any legal download of the track. I think because it is 'just' a re-mix of the beginning of 'Dreaming of the Crash' and 'No Time for Caution' they did not release this particular track officially. You still should be able to find an illegal download but I understand that you prefer the official download as it has the best audio quality and you don't have to worry about viruses... I myself would also like that this track would be released officially but hey, we've got plenty of interstellar music already :). Plus, since you are one of the lucky ones to be able to purchase the illuminated edition, you can enjoy it even more!

Megalith reply Replies: 3 || 2015-03-24 04:02:51
So now that the Blu-ray is out, which version of No Time For Caution do you guys really prefer? I actually think the album version (Hans' version) is the better version. The film version doesn't sound as pure to me, and you can really tell the organ and chants were just kind of thrown in there.


Boldizar2015-03-24 12:42:15
I like yourfavoratemusic's most recent film version. It sound really close to what I remember seeing. What I prefer about the film version is that the cue begins as Han's version, with the sweeping, yet constrained string walls. Then on the repeat the Organ breaks through that "barrier" implied by the string sound. It fits the scene (and its implications) really, really well. The Music Editor made the right call.


Zimson2015-03-24 13:41:25
I prefer the album version too. The adding of the organ took away a lot of the dramatic effect.


Johansson2015-04-27 20:05:30
I prefer the movie version, hands down.
Love the organ and the powerful crescendo. The album version just does not do anything for me those damn strings everywhere. The addition of the strings make it sound like any other soundtrack. Nothing really special.

Please release the movie version also, preferably in FLAC format or something similar. And by having released both versions all fans are happy.
