Zimmer to score Dune?<br><br>"There are also some early rumblings (ha, Dune, rumblings, get it) that perhaps Hans Zimmer may be scoring the Arakkis epic."<br><br>https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/11/18/dune-timothee-chalam et-doesnt-know-what-fear-is/?fbclid=IwAR0wB7FOM_Bw8S7gJ4Nm8P xrSDLJhiooWRSTRaOFJdWSKSrkA50mZVIe-_II don't understand the composer's reasoning. If a piece of music is written with a palette of sounds in mind, it will only work as intended when those stems are all present. One can't aim to do a painting of a pasture and then leave all the green color out because some Gothic Art critic doesn't like the color.From albums yes, not from the scores... lolemoji movie. live action Pokémon movie. 5 transformers movies. Let’s be honest studios have no clue what people wantAre you sure Jackmans been removing the electronics from his music, or just from his albums?<br><br>Civil War was noticeably different, if you compare the OST to what you heard in the movie.
Hybrid said there was some sort of legal issue that came up which prevented use of the samples or something like that.Eh, Shore is a smart composer. He could make it work. I guess whether that's what studios think audiences want is another question entirely...Is it me or are none of the soundtracks on the website showing the sample tracks that you could listen to anymore?Have you heard that Henry Jackman will composing his music for the upcoming 2019 picture called Pokemon: Detective Pikachu?  I wonder what the film soundtrack would sound like.  Hmm...I think that Howard´s style of music doesn´t really fit to the post apocalyptic genre
For a Peter Jackson production I was expecting Howard Shore.I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!I was this tracklist for a 3rd cd floating around, is this legit ?<br><br><br>Disc 1  <br>1.

Frozen NightAbout his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P
@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?

Charlies Loses His Head, 06.10 min. I swear I saw Batman in the movie when I heard the score!

I know right? It blows my mind away

The connection is blatantly obvious, but it's good that he reused the material. Batman Begins wouldn't be the same without Molossus.

I love your work. No one else even comes close to your music and scoring. My favorite is from the Black Rain movie I'll Be Holding On. Gregg Allman's vocals with your song is killer. Wish I could buy it someplace!
