You know, I'll never understand why "The Spaniard" theme from 'Duduk of the North' was never utilized throughout this score. I'm guessing it was Ridley's decision but considering how beautiful the piece is, it really is a shame.
Same thing with the expanded Zod material in MoS
I recently listened to Duduk of the North and I thought it was an excellent piece of music. But, you know... a good idea doesn't always make the "perfect" idea. You can't keep everything. I love how Gladiator turned out: The score in the film has a flavour and a consistency that is pretty unique, a wonderful achievement as it is!
Very true. The film definitely comes first, and Hans' score in context is incredible. It's just a little funny that they kept the 'flavor' of the theme with the Spanish guitars but never state it.
Maximus is not on the Elysium, and he is not dead!!!
Ridley Scott:"I know how to bring him back... there is a way of bringing him back"
Who will compose the soundtrack? I hope you will participate again Lisa Gerrard.
Strength and honor!
What a terrible idea. I hope this doesn't happen.
Maybe as a prequel, but it's a risk idea. And it's sure, Zimmer won't come back to score another Ridley film.
Why come Zimmer not back to compose a ridley film?
Because he said he wouldn't come back for another ridley film. It was Kingdom of heaven was initially for Zimmer and Madagascar for Harry. In the middle of time, they changed films. Zimmer said it was exhausting working on Gladiator and like Hybrid said before, it was a mess of Matchstick men. So, that's the reason.
But I find a pity. That the work on gladiator was not easy I knew. But is nothing new in the film industry. Ridley Scott and Hans Zimmer have been a great team for many years.
If Hans won't do it ..... then BALFE please !
If not Hans, Mancina should do it.
Mike (Old Timer Mike)
I think Harry Gregson-Williams should do it, if Hans can't be convinced. (Well, actually, my first choice would be, don't make a sequel ;] ). But if anyone works on the film, Hans would be my first choice.
If this happens (and I really, really hope it doesn't), Jed Kurzel will probably be hired, and then he'll be replaced by an even less known composer in the middle of production. That's how it works with Ridley these days, it seems...
Mike (Old Timer Mike)
@Ds, do we really think Ridley - and the studio - would take such a chance? Gladiator's score was a massive hit back in the day. I can't imagine they wouldn't try to capitalize on its success, and on Hans' even greater popularity now.
if they do a sequel, then they should hire Klaus Badelt. He scored a lot with Hans on Gladiator. And please not Balfe again. He's a good score-filler, but not great in finding themes and melodies.
Balfe can't find themes or melodies ????? Have you not hear Beyond, AC3 or Home ????? Full of great themes
Balfe's theme,s in The Bible are amazing .He could easier do it I think
God, Spotify is so messed up! It credits all the orchestrators as the composers of the score. Hans is not even mentioned.
Same with Thin Red Line btw. It's credited to Gavin Greenaway. I already contacted Spotify and they responded that they would take care of that problem, but didn't do anything about it, lol. I was told that they get all their information from the publishers.
Hey guys go to HZ's main page and check our recent media player addition (also works for CD pages like here) ! It's pretty cool ! Still adding some ! :)
Whoa! What's going on with the banner at the top of this page? "original-soundtrack"? "No longer with RCP"? And why is it only over this one? And does it mean there might be pages for non-RCP scores at this site? So many questions!! AAARGH!
The media player is nice. Will you be adding more tracks to it? Like one each from Hans' all movie scores?
And +1 to Ed's post. What does that mean?
Cool! Nothing like being able to hear some of Zimmer's music, in full, on this site. I like it!
DUDE!! YOU UPLOADED THE TRANSFIGURATION SUITE FROM TDKR! THANK YOU!!! I've been wanting to hear that! :D
Okay, I'm so sorry to keep posting like a spazz, but you also uploaded Tick Tock from A Game of Shadows in the right tempo! :D Thanks a lot for this!
Never heard it before but "Celebrate The Oscars" is a really an awesome track :)
Gosh....that Transfiguration suite is really cool......still listening to it. lol.
And I never would have realized that a couple parts of Chasing the Convoy East are lifted directly out of it.
I would be eternally grateful if someone could make it avaliable on the most-not-be-named site. Please guys...
LOL Edmund the thing is because Klaus is attached to the page, that's all LOL...
And yeah my point is to add one track per project (of my choosing lol)...
When I'm done with Hans I will with the rest.
I thought Discombobulate was a Lorne Balfe arrangement of Hans' theme? Or are you not just putting up exclusively-Hans Zimmer arrangements?
well story of shen and oogway ascends from KFP, and also the batman theme from batman begins, aren't just HZ either :P
Hey! Where is this page? thx
@galljaronim Just click on Hans Zimmer's picture on this page.
OK I finished uploading (for Hans), there's 125 tracks, one per project ! One big showreel !
Err...the player disappeared on Hans' page. Is it just me? Hybrid?
Does that mean Now We Are Free is actually from Badelt?
Hans and Badelt, I think. Because look, "Elysium" lists Badelt only, while "Now We Are Free" lists Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt. I think with Now We Are Free, Zimmer took what Badelt did in Elysium and used it.
Yeah but basically it would be Badelt's theme then, like "He's a Pirate" is Zimmer's theme.
Klaus wrote the early version of Now We Are Free with Lisa, that was dropped...
Then for the final version there's Hans theme used...
I know, the famous "Daa Da Da Daam" is by Hans. But I never knew that the rest of the track is actually Badelt's work.
Me neither, Zimson.
what part are you referring to zimson?
@roz Everything that doesn't feature the "Honor Him" theme.
go to klaus badelts website, and you'll find many more additional tracks to the Gladiator :)
And "Air Battle" from Pearl Harbor, unreleased from MI2 and other rare material!!
Thank You Klaus
Where do you go on his site to find these additional tracks? I can't find them for the life of me.
In his MP3 player, right on the home page!
Sorry, my Flashplayer wasn't working. Thanks.
You make me smile finding this right now...
It's been on Klaus's site for more than 2 months ! :o
I expect a lot more "bootlegs" for both MI2, Pearl Harbor and Gladiator to pop up soon, that will include these unreleased tracks. (Eyes rolling...)
@Hybrid: yeah, so why doesn't tell us then, if they were so long now on his website? always enjoying this beautiful music for yourself is stupid.
Too bad the "Air Battle" cues are still the same synth demos... or are my ears wrong?? Wish the actual orchestral versions would surface!
My dear Mr. Tweedy, I'm waiting for your exposť regarding that "synth" matter... ;)
Damn Badelt has some nice MI2 tracks! Not sure where most of them lie within the film though... sound mostly like suites or alternates.
Dear Hybrid, here is my "exposť" ! =)
The film version of Air Battle (the "orchestral version") is such a mess. The recording session of this track was pure chaos : some instruments are playing wrong notes (trumpets !), the cue sounds very weak (small orchestra) and especially rushed (last minute change ?).
I'm glad Klaus put his original synth mock up on his website instead of the film version... of course it's not exactly what you hear in the movie, but at least these are (nearly) the same notes, it has some raw power with Zimmer's trademark orchestral samples, the "waltz part" which was unreleased until now, is eventually available... I don't see any reason to complain here !
@Smith I think Hybrid is doing his fair part of contribution to the Zimmer fan community (Inception bonus tracks, anyone?). Finding some new source of music doesn't mean claiming it to everybody here within the next few minutes... especially when you know that most people here are gonna make bootleg CDs out of these new cues and share them on forums, not even buying Zimmer CDs and so on...
@ hybrid yeah anything on more music from inception yet?
I love Klaus Badelt website! Their are a lot of new tracks for TMNT too! Looks like the full edition contains 44 tracks and the website gives you 32 but it's better then nothing :-P
Wow, Gladiator is on top now in the top 50. I wonder if this got voted up or if HTTYD got voted down.
This is one of Zimmer's greatest works. Even though he may have copied Holst's The Planets for some of the cues, this soundtrack cannot be topped and the track "Honor Him" is one the greatest themes to ever come out of Hans' mind.
That's pretty cool. "Strength And Honor" is my favorite track from this album, and it was really really late at night when I was watching the deleted scenes, so I thought I was just hearing things. But it's really in there....
Yeah apparently someone likes Zimmer and Co. enough to use their music as temp music for the deleted scenes. I also heard some John Powell from what I think was from The Bourne Identity or Supremacy. Not too sure unless I'm completely wrong. Then there was a track from The Thin Red Line in there too.
Damn, that's disappointing. You're definitely right on the whole plagiarism thing. So do you add everything, or just some? Cause I'm wondering if you added The Dark Knight 3-Disc. And if so, you're telling me that's real =)
1.) I like that each track is listed as to who did what, so thank you. 2.) Wikipedia states (I take info from wiki with a grain of salt, as anyone with a grudge against Hans could have added it) that Hans was sued beacuse "the music for many of the battle scenes has been noted as similar to Gustav Holst's 'Mars: The Bringer of War', and in June 2006, the Holst Foundation sued Hans Zimmer for allegedly copying the late Gustav Holst's work.' Is this true? 3.) Where is the COMPLETE score for Gladiator? There is a 3-disc with 21 tracks on each disc. I have it, but I'm just wondering why it's not on the site. I see it everywhere, literally.
Though, to me, it was a bit ridiculous... Of course the Gladiator Waltz is inspired by Holst's Mars, but there's definitely no plagiarism. I mean, if THIS is plagiarism, then a million of film score composers, the Horners, Williams, JNHs or Poledouris should have been sued for ripping classical music... :P
And as for that bootleg... Well, I know how it's made... But I think there are enough fake Gladiator complete scores on this site... :P
