Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.
LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!
So no solo cello by Tina Guo? Is it digital then or is it no cello?CD or LP release?Why is Lorne Balfe not nominated for a Grammy for Ad Astra ?To my understanding, James never worked for Hans or Remote Control. They’re simply friends and have collaborated on a few projects. Powell (and Gregson-Williams) used to work at Remote Control before moving on to his own studio/endeavors. <br><br>BUT, I am equally as excited for James to return to Disney Animation. Very excited for this and Jungle Cruise.I guess James Newton Howard doesn't count as a Remote Control composer anymore (and yet John Powell does? I don't get it), but anyway, he's scoring Disney Animation Studios' Raya and the Last Dragon. After his epic trilogy of Dinosaur, Atlantis, and Treasure Planet, I welcome his return to the studio!

Hybrid (or whomever else),

How/where do you find these track listings? I have the Deluxe Edition of the score which only has 24 tracks and here you've got 29... Also, the score track listings for Inception and the Batman films are massive compared to the Deluxe Editions that I have. Where can I get these edition with all the tracks?

Thanks in advance.

@Nyct: I've googled all over the place. Especially concerning The Dark Knight and Inception. I can't find some of the listed tracks absolutely anywhere.

Thanks Boldizar, I've looked into it to see that they're sold out and the ones on eBay are upwards of $150 despite the original $30 price tag. Great.

Eh, it's hard to give a crap anymore. I got invested back in 2010 when one of my favorite scores of all time, How to Train Your Dragon, was (surprisingly) nominated, and we know how that turned out. Since then...well, it's nice to see good scores win, and they do from time to time, but only by accident. Like I said, hard to care.

Magic Coop2015-02-22 22:02:58
Oh well, I for one will be excitedly watching with fingers crossed right up until the envelopes (yes, [i]envelopes[/i], because I am hoping it wins the other 4 awards too) are opened. It's part of the fun. You win some you lose some.

I'd put all my money on losing all. It got the 5 nominations simply out of pity because it didn't get a Best Picture nomination

Well you're DEAD WRONG, Anon. It just won (and deservedly so) the Award for Best Visual Effects.

Settle down. It only won Visual Effects. It lost Sound Mixing, Sound Editing and Production Design. Guys, it would make me so happy to be wrong should it win the Grail of Oscars. But like I said before I'm just being realistic

Magic Coop2015-02-23 05:32:46
No, I won't settle down. The award for Visual Effects is WAY more important than the ones you mentioned. Yes, I would have loved it to win those too, but apart from Score, VE was the one I was most bothered about for obvious reasons.

And at this stage I will take what I can get.

Anonymous2015-02-23 05:39:38
But Magic Coop, the sound of Interstellar is a HUGE part of the film, I would say as huge as VFX. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy it won. But I figured it wouldn't take home anything else. Because I'm realistic.

Magic Coop2015-02-23 06:13:32
Anon....without wishing to argue, you really need to stop repeating that "i'm realistic" statement as it does make you come across a bit pompous. OK, you were (partially) correct on this occasion, but that doesn't mean you will always be right. You don't have a crystal ball therefore you cannot always predict better than anybody else what is going to happen. It is just a coincidence that you were (partially) correct. Nothing more. Thank you. Goodnight

Zimson2015-02-23 08:50:00
Hans doesn't need to worry about the Oscars. He gave his fans a special present with this score, music directly from his heart, and reminded us that we should expect the unexpected from him.

Mortifer V.2015-02-10 10:27:25
They could definitely remove "Detach" and "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" and put back "Coward". But it's awesome that they have "Murph" and "Tick-Tock" in there...

Boldizar2015-02-10 12:34:22
See, to me they should have left Tick Tock and Murph off since they don't add anything (demo tracks) and take up space for main score tracks.

Mortifer V.2015-02-10 13:51:04
leave Tick-Tock and Murph off?? No way... what do you mean they don't add anything? They add everything to the score tracks like Mountains and Detach.

Alan2015-02-12 06:56:29
4 different versions of one soundtrack, and all of them still don't have the two themes everyone wants; but now we're even missing old tracks.

Just stop.

Dave2015-02-19 09:36:33
This is brilliant news, spoke to somebody a few months ago at Musiconvinyl, who stated that there would be some Hans Zimmer releases coming out this year, I asked if this and Inception might be released and the answer was: We are 99% confident that both of these will be released in 2015, so with Interstellar being announced, I am getting rather excited that Inception, will more than likely follow. Nice to know these website listen to your requests.

Nice. Although the link doesn't work.

Never even heard of these awards before.

Magic Coop2015-02-19 21:22:36
OK I found this through a Google search.

Note how although this was awarded Best Score, the award for Best Composer didn't go to Zimmer, nor did any of his individual tracks win FILM MUSIC COMPOSITION OF THE YEAR either.


Magic Coop2015-02-19 21:27:37
Nor did it win the FANTASY/SCIENCE FICTION/HORROR FILM category; Maleficent did.

Hybrid Soldier2015-02-20 00:14:10
Who honestly cares about the IFMCA, but the members of the IFMCA themselves ?

It pretty much has the same value as if I were distributing my own awards myself !

Empire magazine made a poll about the Oscar winners, Hans Zimmer got 54% of the votes in the Best Score category. That's pretty cool :-)

We should be lucky that there is no other "epic sounding" score in competition this year, because the fans of this kind of music will have only one choice: Zimmer. The competition of How To Train Your Dragon may have hurt Inception back in 2011...

Anonymous2015-02-18 01:10:37
Zimmer won't win this. Unfortunately.

Here are the odds at bwin for "best score":
Theory of Everything @1.55
Grand Budapest Hotel @2.40
Imitation Game @11
Interstellar @34
Mr Turner @51

The bookies do know there homework and they are usually right on this.
But if you believe Interstellar will win, you'll get rich ;-)

Magic Cooper2015-02-18 02:25:47
Anon - I'm like Han Solo and I don't give a crap about the odds. Besides, what's more important is who SHOULD win, and not who MIGHT/WILL win. Zimmer's score is without a doubt THE best and deserves to win. It's EPIC, period. I listened to the TOE score - for instance - and that is boring compared to Interstellar. Just very standard orchestral sounding, so very ho hum. I've read plenty online and the vast majority want him to win.

Magic Cooper2015-02-18 02:52:23
"Him" meaning Zimmer, obviously.

badbu2015-02-18 08:11:03

Frank2015-02-18 09:36:45
Pretty sure the Academy will give the Oscar to the copycat of Desplat and Morricone, yes, that what Theory of Everything is. Even the Oscar doesnt goes to Hans, I'd like to see Desplat win it.

Zimson2015-02-18 17:46:40
Interstellar will definitely not win. Yes, they did unexpectedly give Reznor and Rose the Oscar back in 2011 but that doesn't give scores like Interstellar a higher chance of winning. The award usually goes to one of the favorites other than big picture (which will most likely be boyhood, not Budapest).
So I'm 96,34% convinced the award will go to Johannsson or one of the Desplats and I'm being a realist here.

My tip is Budapest.

Magic Coop2015-02-18 18:00:21
Thanks for the optimism, guys. Sheesh. Way to put a downer on things. Anyone would think you are WILLING Interstellar not to win. As fans can't we all just please remain hopeful until the envelope is actually opened and the winner announced, because life can be depressing enough without us completely writing off Interstellar this early on top of it.

I for one am looking forward to Sunday and remain optimistic. I'm not gonna let any Debbie Downers bring me down until I absolutely have need to be. Nothing's set in stone and anything can happen. Murphy's Law, peeps...Murphy's Law ;)

Ds2015-02-18 21:51:46
I agree with Magic Coop! As a true fanboy I'll wake up early on Monday morning to check the results. I'm used to be disappointed by these awards but anyway I've still hope.

Don't forget the three scores with the best "odds" should all appeal to the same category of voters!! They vote for only one score so I'm still hoping for a nice split and a fine victory for HZ!

Anonymous2015-02-13 22:13:03
Well the poster ripped the contents of the discs as flac, but like I said, spectral analysis shows the files to be only slightly better than the web rip. We're talking about a pretty steep cutoff right around 16k.

And anon, I didn't waste anything yet but I still plan on buying one. Randal/your favorite music made a great QC fix and there are plenty of other tracks in it. I know the quality isn't CD standard per se but these tracks aren't getting released any time soon. I love this score either way.

Now if they do release these soon, then you can laugh.

Any chance that they'll release the illuminated bonus tracks (e.a. Murph and Tick-Tock) on iTunes someday (especially considering that they're now released on vinyl when they told us earlier that those tracks were 'star box-only')? I truly like those tracks but they charge €120 (!) for this box set here... If they'd do a digital release on them (just like they did with Dark Knight), that'd be great...

Magic Coop2015-02-17 21:29:29
No offense but I hope not. I know they are being released on vinyl next month (under license by somebody else I might add, and not through the actual official label), but I like the idea of the exclusiveness of them, and would prefer them to be limited to physical releases only. For those who can't get, afford, or don't want the illuminated box, or the vinyl, then I am sure the tracks will appear online eventually when somebody rips and uploads them (if they haven't already done so) but I wouldn't want to see them offically released digitally. That would spoil the pleasure of me owning an exclusive boxset (although the design of the box and electronics do feel special too).

So the tracks not listed on the vinyl tracklist are missing from the lp, or just abridged or added in to other tracks? Because I would love some classic Nolan Noise Blasts, but if 'Mountains' isn't on the lp than I guess that won't happen

Clemmensen gave Interstellar 2 stars.

Normally I'm not the one to rag on the guy but by this point, I think he can just rename his website to "Filmtracks - Good Score Reviews of Everybody Except Hans Zimmer For Some Reason".

Mike2015-01-26 15:23:51
Ya know, I really felt sure he'd give it 3. Granted, he did give it 3 "as written for the film", but really, 2 stars overall because of a complicated (and not even poor—all three albums are strong presentations of the score, minus that No Time For Caution issue) album situation seems unfair to me. I do agree that the score's themes don't see much development, and also that it has a tendency to repeat itself a little too much, but IMO, to give this score fewer than 4 stars is an injustice.

Mike2015-01-26 15:46:35
(I will say, though, that as much as I really like this score, I appreciate that Clemmensen did address some of its more negative elements, which have been largely ignored by most people. Still, the negatives, while they exist, don't detract heavily from the score for me like they did for him.)

NM2015-01-26 17:04:17
I honestly could see where he was coming from for a lot of that review. But the final score is unfair in my opinion.

Mortifer V.2015-01-26 18:34:41
Well, to be fair, he doesn't bash Zimmer's scores only... But yeah 2* for Interstellar is atrocious.

Edmund Meinerts2015-01-26 20:16:13
The album situation with this score deserves to take some flak, but to pull an entire star for it? Nah.

To be honest, I think it's a decent review. CC obviously has huge issues with Zimmer's root methodology of scoring the concept moreso than the film itself that he simply won't ever get over, but that - narrow-minded as it is - is his opinion, which is fair enough. It's a more balanced review than his take on TASM2 was earlier this year, that's for sure.

Pluto2015-01-27 01:04:09
I'll give my opinion on this issue once because that's all it deserves really. Personally, I don't mind negative film reviews for some of my favorite scores as long as the film reviewers seriously review the material and state why he or she did not like it. It is their opinion and I respect it. However, in the case of CC, he once again demonstrates his extreme ill-will towards Hans, and it has gotten out of hand. I read the review for Interstellar, and I can honestly saw that only two of the eight paragraphs there focus mainly on the music in the album(s)/movie. Most of the review focuses on Clemmensen's thoughts on Hans, how Hans scored Interstellar, Hans' fans, etc. Music reviews are to review the music, not the composer, his scoring method, or his fans. Sadly, the review never truly analyzes the music track-by-track, which is the best way to do so. Review the music, not the composer. And to take away a star for the album situation-- just stupid. The music on every album was fine, so just because there are three albums does not take anything away from the quality of music. There.

janlee2015-01-27 01:38:09
wait what, people still read reviews? I thought those days were long gone, you can just listen to everything on youtube and decide whether its worth the money or not....

Anonymous2015-01-27 02:58:33
Clemmensen has given nearly all of Hans' really great past scores (such as Gladiator, Crimson Tide, The Last Samurai, King Arthur, The Peacemaker, Angels and Demons, and even the lessor known ones like Invincible, The House of Spirits, Cool Runnings, etc. etc.) at least four stars and some five. How can you say he hates HZ?

I don't think he is being purposefully unfair towards Hans, he, just like myself and a couple others on this board just didn't really care for Interstellar and also for some of his more recent experimental ambient scores. I think Clemmensen really summed up the issue with Interstellar when he wrote "[Interstellar] is a "...predictably ambient series of repetitive crescendos". My sentiments exactly. Why does a person have to be trashed because they have a different opinion?

Now I'm sure all the "we-love-everything-Hans-Zimmer-ever-did-and-you-better-agre e-with-us" fanatics are going to attack me, so go ahead get it over with.

Hybrid Soldier2015-01-27 12:28:36
Always that same shitty argument, "But look, he liked THIS score ! So he's OBJECTIVE !" And he can trash everything else... :)


I don't care about reviews, critics & stuff, if people are stupid enough to not make their own idea of something, that they need the enlightment of the IFMCA or so called "reviewers", it's not my problem...

You're giving this guy way too much importance... He's the lame owner of a lame site crying every once in a while to attract some money for his dying website, and the only way he has to attract clicks is to cover HZ's stuff, while he could focuse on so much better scores, according to him...

Zimson2015-01-27 13:38:49
Lol, I've been waiting for this a long time now. His reviews are hilariously bad! :D

Zimson2015-01-27 13:47:32
Btw, he gave Gladiator 3 stars (!), for both "as written for the movie" and "as presented on album", but for some reason nominated it for best score that year, although it couldn't possibly have been in the top 40.
And how do you even define "great"? By your personal opinion or critical and public acclaim since Angels & Demons definitely isn't acclaimed but Inception is.

Mike2015-01-27 15:14:28
Pluto, you said it well. I can't quite say how much I thought Interstellar would get a better score on the site, but now I'm completely convinced that Zimmer will be doomed to 2-star ratings from now on. :P I was at least expecting him to hate MOS, TASM, and Batman, for example, but I wasn't expecting this. But I will be expecting it now, regardless of the project.

And in the end, Hybrid's right—the man has one opinion, and it doesn't affect others' opinions. But it definitely comes across as biased.

Anonymous2015-01-27 17:42:01
So let me get this straight, unless someone loves EVERYTHING that Hans Zimmer has EVER DONE, good or bad, he is just an idiot with a "lame" web site? Wow, you are unbelievable. Does the term "finatic" or "groupie" mean anything to you? Are you really trying to say there is absolutely nothing that HZ has ever done that you dislike?

Ds2015-01-27 17:55:38
Anonymous, to be frankly honest, I've never seen a single movie scored by HZ where I thought "shit, the music was out of place, I didn't like it". Not a single one. It doesn't mean I'm playing every single HZ score on repeat, but I think that inside the movie they all work extremely well.

But yeah, actually, MOST of them are still working insanely well without the picture :-p

Hybrid Soldier2015-01-27 19:32:21
Well actually there's Shark Tale (though it was mostly done by Geoff Zanelli & Trevor Morris lol) which is terrible (following the path of the movie lol)...

And I'm not a HUGE listener of some of his rom com stuff like It's Complicated...

But no, there isn't a HZ where I'm in pain listening... Was relistening I'll Do Anything yesterday, didn't remember it much, and it's a good one... :)

Anonymous2015-01-27 23:02:50
Hybrid, you don't rate any of HZ scores any differently? Like say maybe some are only 2 or 3 stars but others are 4 stars? I don't hate any of his scores, there are just some that are truly only 2 stars and other that are 4 stars. Nobody's perfect, not even Hans. He is definitely one of the best composers out there but I have even heard him even say he doesn't like some of his own scores. There's nothing wrong with people having differing opinions, but to criticize someone simply for not liking something you like is a just little over the top, don't ya think?

Hybrid Soldier2015-01-27 23:22:12
No I don't rate them, I like them (and therefore I listen to them) or I don't.

When I'm listening to King Arthur, I'm into King Arthur. It's the only music that exists to me at that very moment. Then the day after it's The Rock, then it's Pacific Heights, then it's Interstellar, then Gladiator, then Preacher's Wife & so on...

There's no rank... There's sooooooooo many things in music I don't listen I won't lose time talking about why I don't listen to them. I rather focuse on what I listen...

Ds, not even On Stranger Tides?

Anonymous2015-01-28 18:26:01
Edmund, that's a perfect example of one that doesn't work and one I never listen to either. I went back and took a closer look at some of Clemmensen's reviews of other composers and I have to say that he seems pretty fair across the board with most composers in rating them equally good vs. bad as he does with Hans, I don't think he rips on HZ at a ratio any higher than he does most others. I personally don't care too much for some of Clemmensen's overtly left-wing political ideology that he frequently injects in his web site however.

I will also admit there are parts of Interstellar that are growing on me the more I listen to it but it certainly is nothing on par with Crimson Tide or Gladiator. I think most logically thinking people would probably agree with that.

thejok3rrules2015-01-28 18:56:22
And the others wouldn't agree? You don't own the truth, don't make assumptions regarding anything. I actually never was interested in Crimson Tide and Gladiator, does that mean I'm not 'logically thinking'? Because you express your opinion like shit, it's kind of hard understanding it.

Anonymous2015-01-28 20:10:29
Joker, take a chill pill dude. We're just having a conversation here about differing opinions, musical tastes and such. This certainly is not worth you acting like an a-hole about it. I never said "I own the truth" did I? Get a life man. I suppose just because you don't like Crimson Tide or Gladiator must mean they are not good, right? Does that mean you own the truth too? I would guess that 90% of Zimmer fans love both of those scores since they represent the quintessential Hans Zimmer style that a lot of us came to know and love that made us HZ fans in the first place.

Ds2015-01-28 20:30:44
Well, Edmund, I forgot that one. I think of it as a huge disappointment because the 2nd and 3rd movies scores were so unbelievably awesome... The 4th is just a generic score that overuses well-known themes, but I still don't think it harms the movie at all. It didn't irritate me when I was watching it, and actually there are some nice parts (Mermaids, Palm Tree Escape) and some good ideas from HZ that were sadly left out of the movie...

Give it about 5-20 years until LaLaLand releases an archival collectors edition. Otherwise we're not getting anything unless they pull a Dark Knight Collector's edition where it came out later (although the ISP and that mess seems to have filled that space).

The quick answer. Fan edits... unfortunately.

Yes it is indeed Quantifiable Connection which was released on the Paramount Guilds website but as you may have heard or read, the track is messed up with a static noise (perhaps due to a gravity anomaly during the ripping ;) ).

Mike2015-01-27 21:00:57
Right, that could end up being a big problem...

Per Kiilstofte2015-01-28 04:46:07
I am the original composer of the track that "Davide Anselmi" released, and I run a small company that releases my own, my brothers and 2 other peoples work.

The original recording and composition I did is called "Rallying the Defense", and I wrote and recorded that track in 2010 where I also uploaded it onto YouTube, and released it under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

I've used the past 2 weeks fighting off the release of "Overture" on YouTube, to try and keep the fans and users of my music free from the false ContentID claims.

"Rallying the Defense" was released as "Overture" through a small distribution company in the UK called Horus Music, who makes it very easy to do so, by making it free.

It is also now part of the Roadrunner Records catalog, as that too appeared on ContentID on YouTube.

I've been manually filing DMCA claims left and right to iTunes, Spotify, Roadrunner Records and YouTube, and in my Googling for more places to approach I stumbled upon this comment section.

So I can safely say, that Hans Zimmer has nothing to do with my old composition and recording. Anyone with experience can hear the track sounds very sub par anything commercially released.

Interstellar 5 nominations! GO!

Edmund Meinerts2015-01-15 16:02:53
I honestly hope Zimmer wins it this year. It doesn't even seem all that unlikely - Zimmer's very popular, he hasn't won one in ages and they might give it the Best Score oscar as a "consolation prize" since the film didn't get many other nominations (they kind of did the same thing with Social Network). I certainly think it's the best score out of the five. Desplat deserves a statue, but not for either of the two scores they picked out (and his double nom kills any chances he would have had). Desplat-lite, uh, I mean Johannson is the biggest threat.

Also, who the hell has even heard Mr. Turner, or of that composer?

Hopefully he'll have the same result as last year's winner, Steven Price (lost the Golden Globe, but won the Oscar), cause Johannson is right on his heels. Not many award ceremonies have been held yet, so it's unknown who's got the edge right now. Hans has gotten 2 wins from Dallas and Georgia Critics Associations while Johannson has the Globe only. But hey, it's been exactly 20 years since Hans got his Oscar for The Lion King, so it's a perfect time for him to earn his second.

And Edmund, Mr. Turner reminds me of the rather questionable nomination Arcade Fire got last year for Her. Seems the Academy just wants to throw one random score in there for flare I guess. But hey, at least it wasn't Reznor & Ross.

Yeah, Zimmer deserves the Oscar this time guys. There's really no contest at all.

Ds2015-01-24 19:01:31
I've just seen "The Theory Of Everything", and I have to say it's a beautiful score. I think it's just the Academy's cup of tea. But let's not forget they gave the Award to "The Social Network", which was everything but classic.

Now I'm upset because I think Hans may lose. I really want him to win his 2nd Oscar!

Heaven knows, if any recent Zimmer score deserves an award, Interstellar is the one.

Edmund Meinerts2015-01-25 20:18:00
The Theory of Everything's score is such a "typical" drama score, though. It's pretty enough, but it could have been written for practically any Oscar-bait biopic. Interstellar on the other hand is a big, ambitious work that really strives to create a unique sound for its picture. There's no contest, if you ask me (unfortunately nobody is).

Hybrid Soldier2015-01-25 20:27:33
Theory is a good score actually...

But the disappointing thing is that the best cue in it, for the final scene, is not even Johannsson's, it's a temp cue...

Ds2015-01-25 22:59:45
Hybrid, what cue is it actually?

Hybrid Soldier2015-01-25 23:40:23
The Cinematic Orchestra - Arrival of the Birds & Transformation

Mike2015-01-25 23:45:32
I've loved that cue quite a while now. :)

Jo2015-01-26 12:46:54
The Oscars are never about what's the "best" in each category. Personally, I don't see any chance for Interstellar. I don't really see HZ ever winning an Oscar again, unless it's for some film that the Academy loves and votes for in every category, no matter what. So, yeah.

Meanwhile, the Interstellar score is still amazing.

Ds2015-01-26 22:06:54
Thanks Hybrid. Actually it's so close to the rest of the score that I really thought the ending scene was also Johansson's music.

Sadly, I guess a lot of voters will make the same mistake and will not vote for Hans...

Any ideas on a Piano Solo Sheet Music Book release. Most of Hans' recent work has a piano book released shortly after or around the time of a DVD or Bluray release. Of all the recent scores of Hans' I figured this would be the most deserving or most appropriate for a piano release. You can currently buy 'Cornfield Chase' for Solo Piano. Though the score relies really on the known theme, there are several other tracks that are unique enough to warrant a release. Just curious if anyone else has any thoughts or news.

This isn't really music related, but Walmart's got new information on the home-movie release that I thought seemed interesting. A 2 pack Collectors Edition with Bluray, dvd, and art book. As well as a IMAX film cell. They have it for $31. 98.

Boldizar2015-01-21 12:58:12
Ugh, hell-mart exclusive. Well I am still hoping for a super deluxe version that comes with a die-cast steel TARS Model.

Alan2015-01-22 01:27:01
As I've said before, I work at a music store (B&N) and I check everyday for updates. Just this morning it looks like we've added just two versions: a typical blu ray and a dvd. ISBN's are 003242920952 and 0032429209238, and other stores (Amazon, Best Buy, etc) will be using that # too.

That Walmart release says its a two blu ray disc with one did collection, so might this mean AND be the first legit Nolan home video release? I feel his skimps on special features so often; but a TWO blu ray set tells me there's a lot of extras :) even the Dark Knight Rises blu ray was just one blu ray disc, and it had the most so far!

Our system hasn't added a cover yet for either though. I'll update when we do.

Alan2015-01-23 19:14:01
Wow! Digital and Blu-ray just announced! And the Blu-ray comes with over 3 hours of special features, just as I'd hoped/assumed!

The features are as follows:
The Science of Interstellar - Extended cut of the broadcast special.
Plotting an Interstellar Journey - Discusses the film’s origins, influences and narrative designs.
Life on Cooper’s Farm - Bringing Americana and the grounded nature of a farm to a sci-fi space movie.
The Dust - Learn how cast and crew avoided sand blindness, and see how to create, and clean up after, a catastrophic dust storm.
TARS and CASE - Designing and building these unique characters and how they were brought to life on set and in the film.
Cosmic Sounds - The concepts, process, and recording of Hans Zimmer’s unforgettable score.
The Space Suits - A look at the design and build of the suits and helmets, and what it was like to wear them.
The Endurance - Explore this massive set with a guided tour by production designer Nathan Crowley.
Shooting in Iceland: Miller’s Planet/Mann’s Planet - Travel with the cast and crew to Iceland and see the challenges they faced in creating two vastly different worlds in one country.
The Ranger and the Lander - A look at the other two spaceships in the film.
Miniatures in Space -Marvel at the large-scale models used in the explosive docking sequence.
The Simulation of Zero-G - Discover the various methods that the filmmakers used to create a zero gravity environment.
Celestial Landmarks - Explore how the filmmakers used practical special effects informed by real scientific equations to give the illusion of real space travel for both the actors and the audience.
Across All Dimensions and Time - A look at the concept and design of the Tesseract, which incorporated a practical set rather than a green screen.
Final Thoughts - The cast and crew reflect back on their Interstellar experience.
Theatrical Trailers

I'm so glad they're doing something on the music... so far, with most movie releases, if there are special features, the score gets overlooked. I remember with the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings, how blown away I was with the lengthy and informative documentary that went into detail with each movie on how Shore wrote and was inspired and recorded the score. I would love to see such a thing like that but with Zimmer and Nolan.

Is there a major difference in terms of audio quality or volume of No Time For Caution on the illuminated compared to the iTunes release or do they not differ at all (except for the cd being lossless)? I'm not sure whether I should get the illuminated version because here in the Netherlands it's priced at €65 or something...

Dillan2015-01-21 19:55:07
There is absolutely no difference in sound quality from the Itunes version to the Illuminated Limited Edition.

Dillan2015-01-21 20:09:41
It actually is rather depressing because the Illuminated Projection Edition is beautiful, the music it contains is breathtaking especially DUST, STAY, DETACH, and DAY ONE. However, although NO TIME FOR CAUTION is supposed to be the highlight, when it reaches that part in the score, it kind of stalls it. For me anyway. I wish they would have cleaned it up better but I am glad that we got it.

Laurens2015-01-22 12:23:43
Thanks that helps me out a lot! I hoped that since the iTunes release of NTFC was a bit rushed, they took the time to master it properly and adjust the volume on the cd version but apparently they didn't...

do we know which cues mazzaro/kawczynski did programming for?

Mike2015-01-19 22:50:36
Well wasn't the entire score placed onto the picture by people other than Zimmer? He said himself in the liner notes that, even though he wrote all the music, it was placed in the film by Alex Gibson and other people, and that he didn't have the film in front of him when he wrote the music. So shouldn't all the crediting here go to the music editors, too, if we're going to bother giving Steve Mazzaro and Andrew Kawczynski credit? Cause it looks like the amount of work they had adapting Hans' music was the same: generally, a copy and paste job. :P

Mike2015-01-19 22:55:39
Also, sorry for a double post, but that reminds me: wasn't this also how Inception was scored before Lorne Balfe got to work arranging/writing? And then, a question: Hans was "allowed" to see the movie while scoring TDKR, right? That one seemed more....synchronous with regard to the picture.

bro2015-01-19 23:51:01
I will admit Interstellar's music editors deserve a lot of credit. Some of the best I've ever heard. You can thank them for the film version of No Time for Caution and some of the other more popular parts of the score.
