Hybrid wrote somewhere here that something happened between Streitenfeld and Ridley during Prometheus,and that was why HG-W was brought on for some rescoringI was wondering about this too. Like all of a sudden, after a couple of Ridley Scott collaborations, he disappeared.Streitenfeld's score for "All I See Is You" isn't added to this site. Does it mean, that Marc left the company?Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752
My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing — but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>Oh wow! That’s all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???
Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Can’t insult me! I am genuinely curious. What’s this about The Last Samurai???I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :O
Credits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.So he's scoring that and the new terminator? Damn dude's getting as busy as Henry JackmanUnless they're composed by Zimmer or someone else from RCP, I wouldn't expect source cues to appear here. And there's like two tracks with Beam in the title listed, so what else would have that name?Tom is scoring the live action Sonic movie. He just confirmed that he is scoring it!

Hi all, stunning music out here, I am so fancy in Hans music.
Anyone has a clue what is the Menu music from Blu-ray edition of PE II? I am pretty sure I have heard it before, Shazam can't find it, I am guessing ... By the time I was looking deep in my memory I remembered :) It is "Arrival of the Birds"

I've listened to the score now several times, and i have to say that it really blows me away. It is SO beautiful, has its themes, its complexity, the fun-factor, the drama, everything in it. It's like a phenomenal journey when you've listend to the whole score. It's so good that I'm actually shocked that it's not hyped by the fans or recognized that much and that SUCH a quality is being used for a documentary. It sounds like a superb blockbuster with a HUGE score. To Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe: thank you VERY much for this amazing and beautiful work. You guys are so talented and i'm so excited to hear more and more from you in the future. And to everyone else here: Give it a listen, it is an amazing work and score!

Am I the only one, or do I sense a bit of "Gravity" in Chinstrap Penguins" and a bit of "Avatar" in Singing Indri? The end of Chinstrap Penguins even has that "airlock sudden ending" sound that was prevalent in Gravity.

Joshua reply Replies: 4 || 2016-10-18 02:38:54
There's a couple chords rattling around in there that sound very Trevor Rabin-ish. I love what I'm hearing so far.


Sean2016-11-13 21:15:17
Totally agree. From what I've read Zimmer and Rabin worked closely together in the past, and I get the vibe that Zimmer has just ripped a lot off from him.


Edmund Meinerts2016-11-14 02:44:30
More like the other way around, I'd think...I mean yeah, Rabin does have a recognizable enough style, but he pulls a LOT of tricks from Zimmer.


rockhound2016-11-14 10:23:48
zimmer and rabin didnt work closely in the past. the only time rabin worked on a zimmer score was Days of Thunder and zimmer worked only on Armageddon, but with gregson-williams and jablonsky were 2 zimmer guys involved. i think rabin got more influenced by mark mancina. the choir in Deep Blue Sea for example has the same sound as the choir in Twister and also the orchestrations in alot of scores have the same style. i guess don harper is one reason for that. if u listen to rabins solo song album Can't Look Away or the Yes album Talk, you can hear the trevor sound and style of theme/melody writing, which you also hear in his scores. its all over the place.


Brent2016-11-15 16:59:49
I actually very much hear Jablonsky in the first track. The percussion sounds like it's ripped straight from the first Transformers film.

Watched the first episode. Must say Jasha and Jacob have done a really good job. Really liked the "Albtross Dance" and "The March of the Red Crabs". And the main theme is used in all the right places effectively with different variations and moods.


rockhound2016-11-07 22:57:55
i have to agree. very beautiful effective music. hans' main theme is very strong and the suite at the beginning fits perfectly. at the end, right before the diaries, the suite is a bit different, because the end has just the choir without the drums/percussions. sounds beautiful. some action and suspense music sounds like typical rcp music, but the rest is very lovely, especially the emotional parts. these moments have nice melodies and fantastic orchestration.

It could be a great opportunity to compare two BBC natural documentaries soundtracks maked by top level film music composers. Which one is better, Hans Zimmer & team "Planet Earth II", or Steven Price "The Hunt". For me it's something very interesing.


Morgan Joylighter2016-11-03 05:15:24
I hardly think Steven Price deserves to be considered anywhere near the same level as Zimmer yet. Or probably ever.


price2016-11-03 12:48:35
Maybe not, but from what we've heard, The Hunt is a far more satisfying soundtrack.

These dull tunes sound like library music from a company that mass produces generic cookie cutter TV soundtracks, rather than a crafted score.


Paul2016-11-03 15:32:38
I wouldn't say Price is lower level composer. His style and approach is completely different from Hans'. Price and Zimmer are incomparable. But there's one thing to say about Price - he hasn't done anything original since Gravity and hasn't stepped away from the same sound patterns. I mean, yes it's been only three years, but seriously, at least little changes could have been made. Fury, The Hunt and Suicide Squad all sound the same. Melodically they don't, but if we talk musical structure - Price's works are identical. Yet, score for The Hunt corresponds to the visuals very nicely. I'm pretty sure the same is with Planet Earth II.


qnebra2016-11-05 00:42:52
Paul - I compare only scores and working in series, not style of composers.

I can honestly say I love all three of them! Zimmer's suite reminds me in style of "The Egg Travels" from Dinosaur by James Newton Howard.


aldan2016-10-29 03:28:39
@Mike except that The Egg Travels is far more better, more original, more inspring, and more original than this Zimmer's two note, unoriginal, trailer music piece that i must say, to be honest, will fit the picture just nicely.



Joshua2016-10-29 04:31:28
You know what else is unoriginal? Using the word original three time in one sentence.


rockhound2016-10-29 07:49:48
part of the suite is the music from the extended trailer and yes, the music fits perfectly to the images. zimmers main theme is simple, but very lovely. also the other 2 tracks are nice.

Hybrid...or anybody: is there a particular reason that, whenever Hans lands projects like these, he typically ends up just doing the main theme? I guess that makes it less pressing on his time, obviously, but is it monetary? Is it that he wants to give a gig to some of his fellow composers? Pretty much any time you hear Hans is working on TV or a video game, "main theme by" is a given, while the score is usually someone else (except Through the Wormhole, maybe).


Mike2016-10-29 19:48:54
I would guess it's a combo of all those things...This way, they have a big overarching musical piece for the show and have Zimmer's name on the credits, while not requiring him to devote months to the series.

And as an aside, I prefer his work on TV and video games sometimes to what he does in movies. I like all of it, usually, but with TV and games he seems more willing to go into straight power-theme territory (IMO, what the man does best), and technicalities about doing things "differently" and being experimental don't get in the way as much.
