Olive the problem is to me at least 12 Strong sounds very like 13 Hours. That then totally messes your argument up !13 Hours must be nearly 3 years old now.where can i find the cue sheets? thxWondring how much influence Tom Howe wille have on this score. Professor Marston was such a lovely score.All those people who complain that Hans isn't sticking to more traditional scores forget that at heart, hes a synth man who loves his synthesizers and keyboards. Hans is just as much as a musical artist as Bowie or Paul Mccartney, in the sense that he goes through musical trends and his style adapts or changes. That's just the way it is, enjoy it for what it is. <br><br>Crucify me for comparing a human to David Bowie!Wow! Stephen Barton worked on a lot of the important cues here, huh?
I'm with Edmund in that I'd love for Hans to win more Oscars, but not this score. I feel like even Blade Runner 2049 is more deserving of an award than this. Sure, it works great in the film, but that shouldn't be reason enough for an Oscar. I feel like Desplat's nominated score is more deserving than this one. <br><br>"But this one has a unique sound and recording!"<br><br>Okay... a lot of scores have that. A lot of Zimmer's work has that. Doesn't make them all masterpieces.<br><br>"But we have to spite those evil reviewers who hate this score!"<br><br>Why do you let their opinion get in the way of your enjoyment? If you love it enough, the critics' opinions should only make you enjoy it more because you see something in it they don't. <br><br>I agree with George in that Hans needs to go back to a melodic sound. I don't think whether this score wins or not will change Hans' mind on that, but I do want his next Oscar winner to mean something other than, "Oh cool! I won this award because I made weird sounds!" (Which by the way, involves things like programming and a lot of other technical adjustments that have nothing to do with Hans' composing ability)."The thing that I'm proudest about Dunkirk is you can't separate it from the film."<br>- Hans Zimmer, GQI understand, but it does not make sense.<br>You're arguing that the score for a movie released in January this year was produced before of the score of a movie that went to theaters in July. If Balfe started working on "12 strong" a year before the movie release, the same can be said of Dunkirk. It is easy to infer that the Dunkirk's score has been working since the middle of 2016! Or even before, because of the tours that Zimmer has done.<br>The music/sound design, even being simple, was not made and recorded between January and May of last year.Olive  that is when it was announced !!! Not when he did itBalfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/
Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.
Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before DunkirkHere's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.

Source???? If true I'm pumped. No more of that Elfman crap lol


Joshua2018-01-22 20:20:39
Can't divulge the source. But it's happening.


George2018-01-22 20:31:14
Lol okay I trust you, its awesome how RGW has broken from the comedic scores and is getting some really good opportunities to create some pretty incredible music


Joshua2018-01-22 21:57:00
I completely agree!


olive2018-01-23 02:09:08
I hope he does a better job than in WW. I like the main theme, but I'm not much of a fan of the RGW score. The most striking moments of it are those in which it mentions King Arthur or The Last Samurai.

Ian reply Replies: 3 || 2018-01-19 05:08:37
Jeez, I knew Lorne worked on this, and my assumption was that his contribution was fairly substantive, but I didn't realize he worked on every single cue (at least those on the OST). I'm not sure how I feel about that "Music by Rupert Gregson-Williams" credit now (I know it has everything to do with contracts, but I'm thinking about the principle / artistic integrity side).


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-19 10:21:06
I mean, Tony Clarke and Evan Jolly are on practically every single cue as well. My gut feeling is that these aren't fully accurate credits yet.


james (now james callahan)2018-01-20 02:01:35
This is one of those scores in which all composers receive credit for all cues even though they have not composed each note of music. This happens all the time in rcp (Kung Fu Panda, Batman v Superman, Megamind, BossBaby, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight).


james (now james callahan)2018-01-20 02:09:23
PS: the assumption that everything is Balfe is subjective. In the same way that you drew the conclusion that he is the composer of everything and the credit of RGW is doubtful, I could also say that Balfe did nothing and RGW did everything. Or that no one has done anything and almost everything
in the score is the result of the work of these additional composers.
The credits do not elucidate anything in this case.

Sounds very Balfe to me ! Duck shoot ! All sounds very 13 Hours . Excellent score either way !

Kalman reply Replies: 1 || 2016-12-01 18:17:36
Does anyone know why this score is not available on CD at most sites? Even at amazon they say it ships in 2-3 weeks. At most of international amazon sites it is out of stock. At e-bay I could only find one copy. Other online stores either don't list it or it is out of stock too. I find it a bit strange considering it was released about two weeks ago by Sony which is not a small label.

Same question!

I am way more looking forward to Hans' smaller works and releases (like The Crown and Planet Earth) than his upcoming big ones like Inferno. I feel like there are two sides of him now, and the shows and films that are smaller do not pressure him to emulate that stupid generic Hollywood action sound. Stuff like this still reminds me of his older work.


fixed2016-10-11 00:01:15
You're right. Also, Hans's old co-work like here (Balfe & Rupert G-W) still better than CHAPPiE's


AndrewM2016-10-13 06:43:12
Didn't know Balfe was also doing this ? Any sample of the score yet ?


gretel2016-11-11 22:45:53
hans zimmer "time" (inception) is nearly the same as "duck shoot".
think he ra-arrange the whole OST.

Waymann reply Replies: 6 || 2016-11-04 22:10:49
Does anyone know the name of the tracks that you hear in episode 2 when King George dies and the scenes following this event ? Can't seem to find it on the score... It's a different variation on The Duck Shoot and Main theme. Sounds even more beautiful than the version on the album.


Vivien2016-11-07 10:27:53
Well, the answer is in your question, it's a variation of "Duck shoot".


Waymann2016-11-07 12:36:32
Too bad... I watched the whole series now and there is I belief more music that is not included in the official release.


Hybrid Soldier2016-11-07 19:15:28
lol series like that have like 4 to 6 hours written for them... OSTs are usually 1 hours...


Felix2016-11-07 20:01:07
@Hybrid

Somebody persons don't know it...lol

Do you know what Lorne did ok this here, at first it stands additional composer & now co-composer?!


Waymann2016-11-08 09:05:06
I do know this, but it's kind of frustrating when you hear good music in the series and they are not included in the soundtrack. Instead some boring uninteresting tracks are included. Of course these soundtrack albums need to be a good listening experience for the big crowd...

Jim2016-11-01 21:00:46
Yeah? Where's source?


Joshua2016-11-01 21:35:11
Out of respect to my source's job I cant say. But its legit.


Anonymous2016-11-02 01:29:04
At least it's not Wonder Woman. Wonder Women is probably one of those lame knock-off movies that opens at the same time as a major blockbuster. Probably about a group of women who gain superpowers after a toxic accident...


Joshua2016-11-02 02:56:34
Whoops. Typo, my bad.


Everan2016-11-02 03:16:56
Oh God, I hope this is true! He can use Zimmer's theme and with the small excerpts of Hacksaw Ridge, he'll rock!

Calling bullshit on Joshua. "Out of respect". Mhm. Ok.


Paul2016-11-02 09:51:04
So... if this is true then Rupert is finally becoming recognised and in demand? That's really nice.

This track sounds just like time/journey to the line. Did Hans actually work on this or is it just his name?


Mike2016-10-13 17:46:16
Same question...maybe they temped "Safe Now" and that's where the Hans part comes from... :P But he did very possibly do it anew, for all we know.


ei182016-10-13 22:15:07
Yea, my first thought was "Safe Now" when I listened to this.


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-13 22:16:01
Really guys ? To me it was more Tron Legacy... lol


MB2016-10-14 00:46:58
Yeah, for me it's like basic Tron:legacy theme. But with some interesting strings on background AND Thin red line/Time/safe now element.


Miguel2016-10-14 03:12:23
Where do you think Trin copied from ! The maestro obviously


ei182016-10-14 07:03:15
Did Hans work on the score? I remember when he was first announced, but I thought I saw recent promotional material with only Rupert's name on it.

Also it is for sure a mix of Safe Now and Tron. Melody is more Safe Now and the sound of it is more Tron. Not sure if that makes any sense.


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-14 10:30:53
Hans worked on it.
