please god (HZ, of course) stop teasing us x'D, the longest 22 days left of my live :)Why can't I buy this anywhere?<br>Want to download it to ITunes so I can play it without the need to connect to the internet but can't.  Please put back on ITunes or have a "Buy song" and Download option on your website.  <br><br>Have tried everywhere for months now.I searched on the internet! The CD was released as a limited edition. Both. There was already a reply regarding this matter.<br><br>What I didn't knew: TF4 "Age of extinction" was limited to 3,000(!) pieces! Produced by Lalaland Records. They also release the TF5 score.Because i saw IMAX prologue, if this track opening, track. It's probably be. Opening scene starting clock-ticking.Probably cycles through them all. Rotation. Or he just chooses who he wants. He's the boss.
How does Hans Zimmer choose who is going to help him on his scores?How do you know? Have you heard it yet?Short bits from the zurich concert:<br><br>--> the e-guitar mixed with percussion is too loud. During the Dark Knight and Crimson Tide you could barely hear the melody lines played by the strings which is my biggest complain (the only one actually)<br>--> choir is amazing and can luckily beat the loud drums.<br>--> music selection is good and most of the time nice medleys<br>--> live singer are a lot better (on the stage !) than i expected. Especially the lion king and gladiator pieces are well done with the voices.<br>--> surprisingly long concert with over 3 hours (including 20 minutes break)<br>--> First half of the concert is perfect ! Good mix of classic and modern pieces/styles. Second half is a bit too much with spiderman, inception, interstellar, man of steel as they are all very percussion heavy. At that point you may get tired of it. Still i was impressed until the last minute and most people in the crowd too i guess.<br>--> hans said zurich is his 38th show on the tour and he showed no lack of energy. He was quite entertaining during his talk bits.<br><br>I hope in some years he will do another tour with some new pieces :)The Mole - Full clock-ticking and rythm<br>@MrZimmerFan Oh I love Inception too, it's a great score. But that album situation though.,.. missing some major cues. At least Interstellar was a solid release, only missing one major track.
Doesn't anyone know which track is the piece used for the end of the series ? Is it on the EP?The movie is 1H47Mins long with credits. If credits are 7 minutes long, we're left with a 100 minute movie (who knows how much music was written/used). Not to mention the relentless pace. I want to believe that we might get everything we want/need out of this release but I'm really not sure.I love Inception<br><br>;PWhile it would be unusual for a Zimmer/Nolan collab to not have any suites, we still don't know how much music is in the film itself. Take 12YAS for example; a 2 hour movie with only 40 minutes of score. For all we know, this release might be 80% of the music written.... or more.<br><br>Now if it's anything like Inception (which is such a disappointing album) then this will be a letdown.Definitely not two hours though since CDs are limited to 74-80mins of audio. I was hoping for an extended digital deluxe edition. <br>
It's a bootleg so no release on CD but it's available in some others places...Dear Hans,<br><br>I'm french and drove 400 km to be in Nîmes on june the 24th and I've never felt so lucky than this day. <br>To see and to hear your musicians and you playing was a dream. I fell in love with your music when I was about 15 and had tears in my eyes when hearing the Rain Man theme. <br>You're a great composer M. Zimmer and a great man. Respectful to your musicians and audience. <br><br>I hope you'll be back in France soon, not just for me but for all those who couldn't see you until then and, even if I have more kilometers to drive, I'll do them easily to have the chance to see you again on stage.<br><br>Affectionately.<br><br>GaëlleThis album will probably around 1 hour... Inception had 12 tracks and was 49 minutes without the two bonus tracks.Those 11 tracks could be each over ten minutes long and the album be pushing two hours for all you know.Aside from the suites it appears to be!!

How come there are some guys like Jablonsky and Zanelli who are listed as additionals here, but don't have any cues credited to them?


Frisbee2013-11-17 16:34:20
Two possibilities:

1) The parts they wrote didn't make it to the album program, or

2) It is known that these guys did write some music for this film, but the exact cues are not known.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-17 16:42:36
Not sure about #1, because I honestly don't think there's much more music in the film than there is on this album.


Mike2013-11-19 04:15:54
Perhaps they did source music not included here...I know that was what Zanelli did on Antz.


Mr Tweedy2013-11-19 22:24:11
Actually Edmund there are a few tracks in the film that didn't make it to the album (5 minutes or so I think).
This could be an explanation. Perhaps some additional composers just helped here and there but didn't earn credits because their contribution was meager too much ?

I don't remember if there was any source music in the film apart from "The Wanderer" (that was not composed by the score team, of course).

I Kinda Sounds Like the Great Escape Theme by Elmer Bernstein


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-11 22:40:22
Well, considering the movie is essentially The Great Escape except with chickens, I think that was the general idea. ;)

So then, I take it JP was the primary guy here?

Ele reply Replies: 1 || 2009-12-16 00:00:00
There's mistake. Geoff Zanelli did not write additional music here.


Mike2013-04-10 04:59:28
Apparently he did. The film is listed on his site.

Steve Jablonsky worked on this score! Wow!

FunnyML reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-12 00:00:00
According to the film's credits sequence, Geoff Zanelli actually did an additional cue.

My excitement just couldn.t be contained when I heard that Chicken Run was being scored by Gregson-Williams/Powell after their amazing collaboration on Antz. I knew we were all in for a treat!
I heard somewhere that main title music is a good way of telling how good the rest of the score is going to be and this is no exception. The "--Opening Escape"-- and "--Main Titles"-- tracks are seven minutes of sheer excitement. The music could be easily inserted into any old-fashioned war movie like 'The Great Escape' (which the film and music obviously parodies).
The introduction of the Mrs Tweedy character, which is gloriously placed in track 3, is at first ominous and then sad to accompany the execution of a fellow chicken.
There are many other sad, heartfelt cues in the score such as "--We Need A Miracle, "--Up On The Roof"-- and "--Rocky, A Fake All Along"--.
There are also many other action filled tracks (tracks 14 and 16).
I almost forgot to mention the kazoos - they are great. They provide a perfect comical feel to the score whilst preventing it from becoming too serious.
There are two songs on the album, one existing and one original - which is very enjoyable.

A great collaboration between the two composers who will continue to produce, interesting and exciting scores for years to come.

***** out of *****

Certainement l'oeuvre la plus aboutie écrite par John Powell et Harry Gregson-Williams.
Les deux compositeurs ont réalisé un travail excellent pour ce film des studios Aardman, déjà créateurs des courts "--Wallace &-- Gromit"--.
L'humour est omniprésent et les différents thèmes sont recherchés, et d'une énergie rare.
Du "--Main Titles"-- au "--Building the Crate"-- survitaminé, pas une seule seconde de musique n'ennuie l'auditeur. Même les deux chansons ("--Flip Flop and Fly"-- &-- "--The Wanderer"--) s'inscrive parfaitement dans le contexte.
L'utilisation des kazoos donne un son nasillard très drôle, en guise d'identité sonore de la bande originale.

Une petite perle que tous les fans de Powell et Gregson-Williams se doivent d'avoir dans leur collection. Magnifique.
