CD or download only?I would love it if it is really 5 minutes per track. I love tracks that are at least 4 minutes long. <br><br>But more likely, the last main action tracks would crack 10 mins long.85 minutes for normal album is more than enough for me. I'm not really into long tracks or super-extended suites. If it puts on album it's great, but not necessary for me. And I don't mention dluxe or expanded albums by the way, that's another cases.So 85 minutes for 17 tracks is an average of 5 minutes per track.... seems a little long, so maybe we’ll get a few long form suites??Agree. 2020 is rough for us.
you’re right. didn’t consider 85 min is actually a good length especially when looking at how short other releases are these days. in 2020 we’re very lucky to be getting it at all.Yeah, but consider most of the real good HZ albums are way shorter than 85 minutes. SO we're lucky with that one.BVS is 90 and interstellar is 1 hr 40 min :PIf 85 minutes of music is short...Almost one and a half hours of music is short?
that’s it? kinda short. being a zimmer score will there be a deluxe version with additional tracks?All I know is that the album is gonna be 17 tracks, 1h25 !nothing is known yet? In some countries it opens in mid-DecemberOne of this score's best and most underrated moments, especially in the context of the film, is the introduction of the Kraken's theme in "Row to Tia Dalma". The tense buildup while Gibbs describes the creature's horrors, then the brief pause as he names it, followed by the theme in the absolute lowest registers of the orchestra, quiet, but so so so menacing and also just SUPER FUCKING COOL.<br><br>It gives me goosebumps every time, in a *dialogue scene*. That is incredibly good musical storytelling.Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.
Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGNI guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.

Someone posted a clean version of "Quantifiable Connection" here a few hours ago, and apparently it's been removed... Why is that? I think it's something really cool for the fans, and it hasn't been officially released, so I don't see what's wrong.

Hybrid Soldier2015-01-15 23:52:32
Because no links to download music illegally here... Dot. :)

Bolidzar2015-01-16 13:34:30
But if the track isn't available normally for purchase, is a fan edit, or at all (such as Day One Dark, where the offer isn't up on movie tickets anymore) what does it matter?

I'd gladly pay for all the missing cues etc... but there is no choice except to download them.

Zimson2015-01-16 17:04:31
Hybrid, do you work for the government? ;) If it's a fan edit and not used commercially I don't see why thee there would be copyright issues.

Well it did get a Best Original Score nomination, and sound mixing/editing and visual effects. No Best Picture. I don't think it's going to happen :/

Boldizar2015-01-15 16:43:35
I have no clue how this isn't at least nominated for Best Picture. What a joke.

fizzbin2015-01-15 18:29:04
I´m not wondering. I have the feeling for a few years, that there was something not quite koscher. Maybe the nominations and winners (for Best Picture) are only for advertising the DVD/Bluray-Releases in countries outside the USA. On what films, we can make more money? That´s the nominations.
Excample Germany: only 2 Films are avaiable for home entertainment. The others will be released earliest to the oscar ceremony. (as appropriate. I bet the winner is one of them)
Of course there some nice films in the nominations,
But, perhaps i have only a kind different taste....

Let´s see , if Hans get´s this golden stuff... i hope

Ds2015-01-15 18:52:30
Actually I think it's the other way around. Distributors choose to release "Oscar-bait" movies in November/December in the US, and then in January/February in the rest of the world. This way, they're eligible for Oscars, and could benefit from the nominations/prizes and make more money.

NM2015-01-15 19:15:23
"I have no clue how this isn't at least nominated for Best Picture. What a joke."

It's not really good enough. Then again, neither was Gravity, so...

Boldizar2015-01-15 20:47:27
Right NM, it is better.

Edmund Meinerts2015-01-15 23:00:08
I'm not 100% sure if Interstellar deserves a Best Picture nod but Matthew McConnaughey certainly deserves a Best Actor one. That particular "snub" bums me out more.

Zimson2015-01-15 23:08:41
There are plenty of excellent films among the nominations, but it's really a joke that Imitation Game and Theory of Everything both could beat Interstellar. Actually, once again considering the average age of the Academy I shouldn't be surprised anymore. Of what I'm surprised, though, is that Grand Budapest Hotel wasn't forgotten. Thumbs up, grandpas!

Boldizar reply Replies: 0 || 2015-01-15 20:48:53
I recently came across a spread sheet that compares and notates differences in each release of this score. It notes that the released version of No Time For Caution is Zimmer's intended version and that the film version was a result of a music editor. Does any one have the source for this detail?

Ticktock is just a longer version of 'Mountains'

No Time for Caution should be between Imperfect lock and Detach
Atmnospheric Entry appears to be pasted over that and 'No Need to Come Back' by accident

I was working on this/wanting to know as well.

I didn't get very far:

Are we sure that Atmospheric Entry is for the first planet? The entry to that planet was all sound effects from the ship and fast entry. This music itself doesn't fit with it either. It sounds more like the ice cloud section.

Ds2015-01-12 20:26:10
Boldizar, yes 100% sure. I remember it from the last time I watched it in the cinema. And if you don't believe me, the track order of the FYC album doesn't lie :-)

Michael2015-01-12 21:30:04
Ok, for the tracks in the "Not In The film/Suites" section, could you possibly list what they are?
Like: Extended version of.....or not in film at all, or contains portions of....."
Thanks so much for the info :)

Boldizar2015-01-12 21:42:33
@Ds: Good point!

Day One is essentially the overture. The main theme(s)

Murph is a suite that is a variation of Stay and Detach. The music in this film is all meant to relate to Murph and Cooper's attachment. This piece relates the two together directly. for example: The "triumphant" sort of theme(I think)in Detach is meant to signify Cooper letting go of his want to see her again (for good reasons and to help others, but coming to that decision in general). Anyways this piece, to me, relates how the two are connected.

Organ variation (is extremely boring and lame) is a variation of Day One, almost the same, except the organ plays one mid-low range tone as a bass instead of the other things that go on. Very Boring. I thought we were going to get a nice powerful organ version, not one bass not underneath keyboards.

Tick-Tock is a suite variation of Mountains, again longer than, and not really necessary for anyone to hear. It may be a demo of the original score prior to real instrumentation as I believe Day One Dark is.

Day One Demo - Original Zimmer piece composed for film. Base music

Boldizar2015-01-12 21:44:43

RE: Murph - the triumphant part of Detach is also, almost the same as the end of Stay, although going along with my idea, Detach is much more accepting and bright.

Hybrid Soldier2015-01-12 21:47:06
Correction, Mountains is a varation cue of Tick-Tock, not the other way around... :P

Michael2015-01-13 02:12:45
So wait, which version is heard in the film?
Mountains or Tic Toc?

badbu2015-01-13 06:13:45

Boldizar2015-01-13 12:39:46
haha yes, that would be correct. I am not sure how you are affiliated with Zimmer, but can you confirm weather or not Day One Dark, Tick Tock, and (I am guessing as it is lumped as a bonus track) Murph are demos, or at least score pieces prior to live recording?

Michael2015-01-13 14:01:46
Wait, what is Day One Dark?
I only have Day One......

theeaglesfan005 2014-12-15 18:47:48
It's 5 new tracks

It's a shame that No Time For Caution will not be released on any discs :/

Ports2014-12-15 19:00:04
So? Those 4 tracks are the "35 minutes of extra music that is unavailable elsewhere"..that is what the original site said was on disc two.

theeaglesfan005 2014-12-15 20:17:06
5 tracks*

Who's They?... assuming it's the FYC version (7:18)
Murph I'm hoping is Quantifiable Connection from the FYC (3:30)
Organ Variation... probably a suite
Tick - Tock... probably a suite
Day One... probably a suite

So i can see the 35 minutes

NM2014-12-15 20:29:06
'Tick Tock' might be 'Day One Dark'! It might all end up being music we've heard! Guess we'll find out soon.

Ds2014-12-15 20:31:48
NM, I think Tick-Tock may be something related to the beginning of Mountains, where we clearly hear a clock ticking. Organ Variation, however, may be Day One Dark.

Ports2014-12-15 21:09:05
I can go for some long suites...just get the box shipped PLEASE!

theeaglesfan005 2014-12-15 22:30:11

I doubt Organ Variation is Day One Dark

Mike2014-12-15 23:48:31
If Who's They? is the same cue as from the FYC, I'll be one happy guy! I enjoyed that one. The other tracks could be anything, meanwhile. We will see. :)

JamesT2014-12-16 03:50:03
I'm thinking...

1) Murph is somewhat lengthy demo suite that encompasses the love theme, parts of Years of Messages from the FYC, her return to the house, etc.

2) Who's They is the same great track from the FYC

3) What if Organ Variation has something to do with the Dock Scene?

4) I think Tick - Tock is the Eureka scene when you see the watch hands moving

5) And, Day One is the track that was a promo with the movie ticket purchase

We will see...

badbu2014-12-16 07:59:17
I think "Day One (Original Demo) " is the first first version from hans for chris :-)

Tim2014-12-16 10:11:31
I'm very happy to Finally see this! If you add No Time For Caution from the iTunes release and the Don't Go Gentle Into That Goodnight poem track, that's more stuff. Compared to most Zimmer releases, this has been the most substantial. We got more music from this movie than from Man of Steel. I can't wait to have this!

theeaglesfan005 2014-12-16 14:31:49

that would be awesome... to hear the first track/theme that Hans composed for the film :D

What Tim said. Two years ago, we'd not have gotten anything close to this.

bro2014-12-17 00:26:16
judging by what hans has said in interviews, day one (original demo) might be closer to "Years of Messages" than it is to the refined main theme we have now.

Tim2014-12-18 20:31:43
I'm not saying the poem track was good. It's my least favorite thing, but it does have Zimmer's music in the background and it is part of the total time on the deluxe iTunes version.

Has there been any news about Day One Dark? I didn't have the chance to get it from the promo.
If I had to download only one track from the whole soundtrack, it would be that one, and I can't download it anywhere without getting crappy quality from ripping it off youtube or something :(

Boldizar2014-12-19 16:53:11

I have not seen it as a download anywhere besides youtube either :/ I thought for sure it would be on Disc 2. It sounds like it is a piece from Hans' original score prior to re-recording with real instruments, so a "demo" of sorts.

Alan reply Replies: 14 || 2015-01-09 21:07:25
Hans Zimmer is my favourite composer, but his soundtrack releases are always left feeling so incomplete and odd to me. Don't get me wrong, I love my Dark Knight scores and Inception and Interstellar, among all the other one's he's done, but all of them exclude at least two theme's I'd hoped for.

Maybe how Howard Shore and Jackson did The Lord of the Rings scores completely spoiled me... because now I hope for the entire score, and not just a selection or "best of" with parts that differ from the actual film. I get that things change (hell, even some score from The Hobbit "films" are different from what is on the soundtrack via last minute mind-changes, but even then I bet you they will be released when they release the Complete Hobbit scores like what was fixed and released with the Lord of the Rings Complete scores), and I get that I don't have the right to "deserve" what I heard, that they owe me nothing, but damn... it leaves you feeling like a band has released a really great single for their new album, and you wait and wait for that cd to drop; but when it does, that song is not on it and you can't get it anywhere and the radio's/streaming sites stop using it.

It just makes me sad that in 2015, we still have to live on unofficial FYC bootlegs and DVD/Bluray soundtrack rips for a complete score because record labels or composers or directors, I don't know, don't take their score releases seriously.

Maybe one day a person can get a cd or FLAC or WAV or vinyl of an entire and complete score right up front, and not an unorganized three month wait and $40 later for "variations".

Any one else feeling let down by this "Star Projection" edition? Really, I'm starting to feel they put more work into the packaging (hence why it's named after it) than they did the music. I guess I know next time to really judge something by its name and not what it promises.

Alan2015-01-09 21:11:21
And before anyone jump down my throat, back in November when they released the score and it was missing "No Time For Caution" and everyone freaked, and then Hans released it, but it was still not the complete song and everyone freaked, I kept my cool. I tried to be patient, awaiting this seemingly cool, ultimate edition of the score. I even judged people freaking out on here, thinking them selfish and ungrateful to Hans and even Hybrid....

But now that the Illuminated Star edition is here, I'm really feeling those from November who were bummed about the missing tracks. Oh well, I suppose.

Boldizar2015-01-09 21:37:49
I hear you.

Why can't they release the FYC that was uploaded online? Even as a separate edition (standard, Illuminated, FYC) it would be great to have.

Mike2015-01-09 21:40:06
Well, I, for one, have just accepted that even if they release more music officially (Quantifiable Connection), we'll never get a film version release of No Time For Caution. What we got is all we'll get.

Alan2015-01-09 23:01:04
I know, Boldizar... it would make sense, right? Hans went to the trouble, for every score (well, some of them he seems less interested in) so why not release all of it? I work at a music store for my measly living; I get and I understand the minds of the record labels: they don't want to put money and effort into a release that will only appease a small crowd of people. There's no money to be had from such a release. But it does not cost so much to release such things digitally.

Don't want to make a booklet? Don't want to make the order to manufacture the cases and printings that go with it? Release it digitally in all forms: FLAC, WAV and 320 MP3. That way the music is at least released. Or, if a physical copy must be had, like I said before, release a limited edition "Complete Recordings" like Shore and Jackson did for The Lord of the Rings and will probably do for The Hobbit. Those cd's were beautiful and jam-packed with great information and liner notes, and of course, every single second of music. The cases were even made to match the Extended Edition dvd's with their theme of looking like old, worn books. Right now you can't get those without paying a user on Amazon a lot of money, but when they came out, they were reasonably priced and well-made. I bought them instantly and still listen to my FLAC's on my computer all the time.

Maybe it's more difficult than we realize to release a score soundtrack... but I still refuse to believe the film mix of "No Time For Caution" doesn't exist somewhere because it obviously does, I think they're just being lazy. Like Lucas did before when defending never releasing an unaltered version of Star Wars because the negatives were "permanently" altered by his new additions. Since then Disney has announced they're working on unaltered versions of the original Star Wars films to be released, solidify everyone's theory that Lucas was just being a lazy shit. I refuse to believe an artist doesn't keep multiply version of everything they make. Be it Version 1 or Version 100.

Anyway. But maybe I don't know anything. Maybe I'm just hopeful and naive. But it just seems so... simple. Obvious. Easy to release a score correctly.

Alan2015-01-09 23:04:58
I think I have too, Mike. Maybe someday down the road, when they do a retrospective look back at Nolan's films or Zimmer's score's we'll get a complete release, or one with "NEVER BEFORE HEARD MUSIC" (again), but until "then", I agree with you, and I'm pretty sure the "No Time For Caution" is all we'll get. And truthfully, I'm not sure we'll ever get "Quantifiable Connection" either.

Sadly, I think the closest we'll ever get is a scratchy FYC or a Bluray soundtrack rip with background sounds.

So unless someone befriends Zimmer or Nolan on a very personal basis, and can get ahold on the full score, what we've got is what we're going to get.

Mr. X2015-01-10 14:05:16

I truly feel you. I share the same sentiment regarding the release of this amazing Zimmer score and several others. It has been 14 years and we still sadly don't have a clean version of "Let My Home Be My Gallows" from the Hannibal score without dialogue.

Like you, I am baffled by these decisions to exclude or alter certain cues from great soundtracks. I have been involved in several aspects of the recording industry and I can indeed confirm that there are "vaults" in which the studios hold and own the rights to each used and unused cue they paid for. It's just one part of the standard contract when hiring the composer. Most of the time, only studio editors get access to the vaults just to temp their latest rough cut.

So, when it comes to obstacles regarding ownership, distribution, and performance rights issues, I can understand the omissions. But with score growing in popularity, it is still hard to see these track issues still happen. Thankfully, things are about to change...

This poor release of Interstellar has actually become a positive turning point for score lovers everywhere. In a remarkable fashion, our passionate plea for "No Time for Caution" was heard. And even though it wasn't the version we wanted, it was enough for someone to dedicate their time to recreate the track we all wanted to hear: ### EDITED ###

We are now getting to a point where audio technology and sample libraries are getting better and more accessible. Unrecognized sound and music maestros on YouTube are now leading this charge in recreating what we feel has been denied. As I write this, I am enjoying the fixed version of Quantifiable Connection due to the amazing efforts of this YouTuber: ### EDITED ###
A version that I am more than pleased with.

And if any of you know Zimmer, then you know he spends a lot of his downtime watching YouTube listening to undiscovered musicians. He is fully aware that people are now taking the lead in crafting film accurate versions of his work. Perhaps, the real reason why we still don't have a non-dialogue Hannibal score is because he is waiting for us to recreate it. ;)

bro2015-01-10 14:34:44
I'm the guy who made the NTFC fan made version you linked and I agree with every word you just said. Especially with "Let my home be my gallows", maybe something could be done about that.

Medigo2015-01-10 15:06:00
so the voices cant be extracted from that cue with a program?

bro2015-01-10 15:10:25
I haven't checked but I don't think so, unless you get it from the DVD/Bluray

Mr. X2015-01-11 08:42:58

Thank you very much for your truly fantastic effort!

As for Hannibal, I did my best to cut the vocal frequencies (3-7kHZ) for both the Pazzi Theme and Gallows. I can barely hear the dialogue and SFX now when using external speakers at medium volume. However, the background noises do become noticeable if listened through headphones.

NM2015-01-11 10:40:49
"This poor release of Interstellar has actually become a positive turning point for score lovers everywhere"

I don't understand how you can say it was a 'poor release'. Even without the FYC, nearly every single major cue, and all the suites have been released.

Boldizar2015-01-12 21:50:03
I used to work at a local music store as well and I was very surprised how many people came in to buy the Inception score. If anything Zimmer is the one composer who has a fan base to sell too, although there is plenty of general soundtrack interest as well.

Regarding the Star Projection edition: I got mine and am pretty let down by the "extra" music. Most of it is the same thing over and over, like Tick-Tock and Murph. Murph is the only bonus track I like because it sonically connects Stay and Detach (which I relate together in my analysis). It is still to long though. Then Organ variation, just wow. It is so lame I can't believe it.

Alan2015-01-13 07:38:57
MN, I think what "poor release" means is that this entire process has been, well, poor. The CD came out two weeks after the film, which I got: Hans and Chris wanted everyone to hear the score first with the film, but a lot of folks were off-put by that. I had to go to three different stores before I could find my copy, and even they had to go into the back and find it. I work at a music store and we didn't get our first copy in until mid-November, even though it was on order. At the same time of the CD release the iTunes deluxe version came out as well, but neither version had the theme's people really wanted: "No Time for Caution", so we hoped and asked for it, and eventually they released it, making us pay $2 to get it, and it wasn't the "film" version, but one that was shorter and not as full, missing a great deal. We were all upset. So then we put hope into the FYC version, which when it leaked, ended up being the same track, but the FYC did have a track we were hoping for as well: "Quantifiable Connection", but, being a 3 minute something song, the part we were all waiting for starts RIGHT when the audio starts messing up via a bad rip or a messed up CD that was then ripped poorly. Once again, disappointment. So we all put out hope for the Illuminated Star edition, hoping those final songs would be on there. Guess what? Neither were. So yeah, at the end of the day, it's pretty great to have what we ended up getting, but after four releases, and those two most desired songs are STILL not out, I'd say that it's been a pretty poor release.

Ds2015-01-13 08:26:39
Alan, I think you're right. It's not stupid fanboying to say that the people who handled this CD release seem to have no idea of what the buyers want to hear.

I think we got a lot of great music, but after 4 different releases and over 2h of music, one can expect that no significant cue will be missing.

Alan reply Replies: 0 || 2015-01-13 07:24:39
Just a quick side-note... some time ago, right after the film came out, I saw an article that gave a SLIGHT insight to the making of the score, and in this article was a picture of Hans playing keyboard wearing a nice pair of headphones. I'm currently in the market for new audiophile-grade headphones and in my mind Interstellar's score seems to be a good basis to figure out which pair is best! Anyone know that photo? Or know what he uses? I figure whatever Hans used for Interstellar would be a good place to start.

Murph is a longer version of "I'm Going Home", but around 8:00 min in more instruments join and I don't remember this version in the movie.


The new track times are at the top of this post.


All the tracks are basically long variations of songs already featured on the soundtrack. That being said, they're good variations. Some of this songs I don't recognize from the movie.
Tick-Tock is my favorite because it adds additional instruments and choir.

Kurt2015-01-09 15:57:19

I love the new cues, however, I'm still patiently waiting for a good quality version of Quantifiable Connection. *sigh*

And by the way, 2 months on, and all I can say is that this score is truly a+mazing. I loved it right away, but now I'm deeply in love with it.

Meta2015-01-11 22:42:47
I'm not much for Zimmer's current experimental "jazz" phase with his music, but I figure eventually it will lead to something more tangible and greater down the road...

Its either that or I'm just not into his current collaborators, like Junkie XL....

Still, this soundtrack only had about 3 or 4 tracks I can actually be satisfied with as a whole sampling of the score. The rest of just extended./aternate/demo pieces I dont really care for....

Otherwise, Cant wait for Chappie....

Ds2015-01-09 13:53:27

S.T.A.Y. is not an anagram, it is just "stay" in morse code! It plays during the scene in which Cooper is trying to communicate with Murph from behind the bookshelf.

And yes, Where we're going plays up to the end of the movie.

RealFfingMusic2015-01-09 18:00:17
@Ds, STAY in Morse would look like ... __ .__ __.____, which does not make any sense. Hence, the first letters in CAPITAL, with spaces in between.

Bolidzar2015-01-07 12:46:38
Hey ZeePlus,

MP3's are like putting an audio source into a soup can (or any sort of filter). The sound emitted and frequencies available for your ear to pick up are limited in various ways. With a lossless file the waveform will have no (or less) filtering as to frequencies above and below the general 20hz-20k hz range the human ear responds to, and if you can hear those frequencies then you will notice a fuller sound. Also the waveform will have higher resolution or more "data points" as the wave form changes. This could result in a "smoother" sound thought I doubt any notable difference will be discernible.

zeeplus2015-01-07 15:30:40
Hi Bolidzar!

Thank you very much for that detailed reply. However what I am looking for is more of an answer relating to the Z+ app tracks. They can't be mp3s as they are too large and so I am wondering what type of file they are and their quality in terms of bitrate, etc. Basically I don't want to waste $25 on the HDTRACKS.COM tracks if the Z+ app ones are as good as it gets. If the HDTRACKS.COM ones are better, then I want them.

Boldizar2015-01-07 17:24:40
Sorry I have no clue what the bitrate is for the Z+ tunes. Even if they are lossless they are probably only 16bit or maybe 24. Plus HD tracks is the deluxe version of the release.

No Time for Caution is the same mix as the deluxe edition, so mostly strings, not as much organ as the FYC.

Boldizar2015-01-07 17:26:09
That should say: they are probably only 16 bit**

I mean human almost can't even make the difference between mp3 320 and standard lossless.

For archival purpose, maybe... lol

Hello. Here's a good question: Which will be better, the HDTRACKS 24bit files, or the Z+ app music? I know the Z+ app is supposed to be HQ, surround, etc, but I cannot find any info on the actual bitrate, etc especially as the physical files cannot be located on my phone. The standard mp3 download is only 240k which I was pretty shocked by as I expected them to be 320k until I investigated.

Sorry, I meant 256k. lol.

Sorry, I meant 256k. lol.

Upon further investigation, the entire Z+ download is 392MB. Now, there are only 16 tracks in this version so that would be an average of 24.5MB per track, but obviously some tracks are much longer than others and so they could easily be over 30MB. That's pretty huge. I have no idea how large the HDTRACKS.COM file sizes would be, for comparison. Hope this helps.

I second that! How can such an incredibly beautiful vinyl not be pressed!? This needs to happen!!I will continue to check ebay monthly.

I am pretty sure that Music on Vinyl teased Interstellar, so it's going to happen I believe. It will be my second vinyl, if so. District 9 is my first. :)

No "official" news yet but a vinyl is indeed in the works...

Still nothing about the illuminated version, huh? :( How sad.
