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.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).

Hey Hybrid, is it true that Atli is scoring Peter Jackson's Mortal Engines movie? That would be fucking dope.


Edmund Meinerts2017-12-22 18:13:22
Ooooooooh. That would be awesome.


Edmund Meinerts2017-12-22 18:14:30
Maybe he got hired by accident because they thought it was a sequel to Mortal Instruments?


isildur2017-12-23 19:50:33
lol Edmund!

Hey Hybrid, soundtrack.net & IMDB list Atli as the composer for Hitman's Bodyguard, is it true?


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-18 12:21:17
Yes !


isildur2017-06-18 13:21:34
Oooh! All out action score from Atli. I love it. Now that Lorne is getting more mainstream projects it's high time Atli got some too. He's got so much talent.


Felix2017-06-18 13:59:32
It's really great, but Atli's Scores don't get ever a release...look on all the great TV scores....also don't get releases....


Edmund Meinerts2017-06-18 14:19:49
There's a difference between the fifth season of some generic cop show not getting a score release, and the score to a fairly high-profile action movie (a situation like Ghost in the Shell notwithstanding). I can't think of many Atli film scores that never got an album. Wouldn't worry about this one.

The prodigal son returns! I like Atli a lot, sad that he doesn't get the same sort of assignments that Balfe/Djawadi/Jackman do. But this sounds pretty good!


Abdusalam Shlebak2016-11-18 06:15:57
Wunderbar wow

Epic work by Atli! For me one of his best.

It's nice to listen to, but I don't really think it's one of his best. It makes for a better album than e.g. The Eagle, Babylon A.D. or Season of the Witch, but there are individual themes and moments in those scores that far outshine anything in Bilal (there's nothing here to rival "Crusades", "Babylon Requiem" or "The Return of the Eagle"). And I don't think it's anywhere near Mortal Instruments, which is his best overall score so far.

Still, like I said, it's a decent score and nice to hear from a guy who's been MIA for so long. Just not the glorious return I had hoped for.

For those "shocked" by Inferno, here's some excellent old school adventure score by Atli. :)


isildur2016-10-14 03:43:24
I still don't understand why Atli doesn't get some nice, big projects. He has so much talent. Liked the suit. I hear a bit of Prince of Egypt, which is a good thing.


Anonymous2016-10-14 08:52:36
I was not shocked. Just disappointed to be proved again that Zimmer lost his touch to write decent, memorable music.


Morgan Joylighter2016-10-28 05:45:56
RE:Anonymous, he has done no such thing. Interstellar was only two years ago. And the second half of Inferno contains plenty of music which is AT LEAST decent, but it seems most people are tuning out before they get to the good stuff. Zimmer fans these days are so spoiled...twenty years ago the same score would have been considered mind-blowingly epic. How many times does the poor man have to reinvent himself before fans will be satisfied?


Morgan Joylighter2016-10-28 05:46:47
And I'll add he simply hasn't been hired to write the "memorable" music recently. You can't accuse him of losing his touch for simply doing his job as he is asked.


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-28 11:01:35
That's the thing - he doesn't have to reinvent himself every time, in my eyes. I wish he would sometimes just kick back and do what he does best.

Also, a lot of the "decent" stuff in the back half of Inferno is only so because it's straight reprises of DVC and A&D.


Anonymous2016-10-29 11:36:55
Exactly. Recent years he tried to pull a Madonna. Change and experimentation for the sake of experimentation and looking and sounding like 'I am so edgy, I still have it'.

Like every artists his best work was in the middle part of his carreer.

The good stuff he releases recently are usually rehashes or reprises of magnificent works he wrote many years ago.

Also Hans used to be special with his synthy approach years ago. But these days every videgame, movie or trailer has it so it is total not special or exciting anymore.

But each has their own opinion :p

As for Bilal. Awesome work!
