I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.It's out there.Reef 2: High TideSerenity going to be released next week<br><br>https:/ / www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KZGKX4K/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl ?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativ eASIN=B07KZGKX4K&linkId=b932ee0afd97cf3be04f644cad294734I watched again and the "thickness" in some of the low end was in fact multiple kettle drums being rapidly pounded which in fact accounts for the excess reverberation and explains why it sounded muddy to me.  I will have to get the "World of Hans Zimmer" recording that others are talking about and see if I like that one better.
Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations. <br><br>I hope they go with someone new.Please add some Interstellar, Man of Steel or Batman Begins to the 2019 tour..I was meaning in addition to stairs and rooftops is there any other segments that play that partI would rather Balfe do the next Bond.MI5 Rogue Nation was a completely breath of fresh air in the series. Thanks to McQuarry and of course Cruise. But also, Kramer take the music in a new level and for me it's one of the best scores in the series. Balfe elevate the music to the netx level. No one doubt is the best in the series, even Balfe took some motifs from Giacchino's scores. So if Balfe return it would be awesome hear what could be the next level in his music, but if Kramer returns, is sure he will take the music to all new level. One of the things Cruise take care in the series is the music, he has a good ear, so many people were surprised when he choose Balfe to score the film.
I think that it's ridiculous that there is going to be a mission impossible 7 & 8. Hopefully, these are going to be the last ones and that they end on a high note. I do want Balfe back if they are going to make these films.I liked Fallout but Rogue Nation is where it's at. I wish Kraemer could return :/@ Jason Stairs & Rooftops was a standard track not a bonus<br><br>@ Peter cruise wanted a different composer and director for every film so they all have a different feel. McQuarrie made history there as the first filmmaker to do 2 M:I filmsStairs and rooftops is a fantastic track.Does anyone know why Kraemer wasn’t used?<br>I was at Admiralspalast on Sunday evening and I completely agree with what you wrote!
Guys... he-he's not getting it...was that segment in any of the bounus tracks? from LALA LAnd.I honestly love stairs and rooftops that track I could listen to that segment from about 3:25-4:20 over and over again. so I hope balfe does it againRogue Nation was a great soundtrack but Fallout has to be one of the best action scores since The Dark Knight.I hope they keep Balfe on for the next 2 films@Edmund Not at all! I think Kraemer’s score honestly is one of the best in the series, especially with the way he approached the material. On the same token though, I am also a massive fan of what Balfe did. A different approach for sure, but it still helped elevate the film much in the way Fury Road’s score did for that film. <br><br>Personally though, I feel like bringing a new composer on board to give a different take would be the most ideal, but that’s just me.

So, I'm going to be honest - I'm not a huge fan of Zimmer/Nolan collaborations. While I believe Interstellar is a highlight in Zimmer's portfolio, the rest of Nolan's scores are, to say the very least, distant seconds.

Like all other film composers, Hans Zimmer's music is heavily influenced by the director and his distinct style. In my mind, HZ scores from Gore Verbinski and Ron Howard films are my favorites (with Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons being #1), and you can easily tell why - both directors are very charismatic and aesthetically pleasing, narratively and visually. That sense of color and personality likewise translates to Zimmer's music, producing scores that can be jaunty, frightening, and classically epic.

Nolan, however, is a different story. I am a fan of Nolan as well, but compared to others, his directing style is very stoic and monochromatic and heavy; there's very little wiggle room for a liberating sense of fun or enjoyment. Not saying that's a bad thing, but that style shows itself in the scores, and let me be honest, it's much more pleasing on the eyes than it is the ears. Batman, Man of Steel, Inception, they're all the same to me - at best, pensive and reflective; at worst, muddy and bland.

To me, they suffice as background music, to kind of zone out to while I'm preoccupied with something else. With other scores, I'm fully engaged in the soundscape, picking it apart and losing myself in the music - but in my view it's kind of pointless with these aforementioned scores. If I had to describe them with a word, I'd say "serviceable."

That being said, I'm looking forward to Dunkirk with enthusiasm, but only with the hope that Zimmer and Friends can produce something unique and engaging, something that breaks the mold set by other Nolan scores.


mpolonest123 2017-07-04 05:33:11
I both completely agree and disagree with you.

With regards to Nolan I do understand how his films come across as ultra-serious, heavy handed. Especially in the tones and performances. At the same time I think his strengths as a filmmaker (and the aforementioned performances/cinematography) do compensate. Hell, Interstellar had the best balance of stoicism and genuine human emotion. Could they be more fun? Definitely, although something like Dunkirk wouldn't benefit from levity.

Now on to where I disagree, at least partially. Zimmer. If you go through each of the scores he did for Nolan, they are fairly different from each other. Batman Begins couldn't be further in tone or style from Interstellar. Just like Inception and TDK are at different ends of the spectrum. And MoS (since you mentioned it) is almost nothing like the Nolan scores outside of similar instrumentation. I think the key difference between the Nolan/Zimmer collaboration and other collabs is that on a Nolan film Zimmer tends to have a more suite based approach. They basically function as library scores initially. Compare that to something like Rush, where Zimmer scored to picture. Both approaches work imo, and I definitely wouldn't say Interstellar or TDK are bland. Maybe oppressive, but even JNH's contributions to the Batman films show more emotion than given credit for.


Nick2017-07-04 07:26:41
@mpolonest123 As I mentioned, in my opinion Interstellar stands alone in terms of the risks Zimmer took and how they paid off in the end.

What I don't understand is when people cite Nolan's Batman trilogy or Inception as some of Zimmer's best work. Both are similar to each other in the fact that they're slow, churning, more reliant on sound design and sonic ambiance than melody, and they are heavily derivative from Zimmer's past projects (TDK is just a stripped-down regurgitation of prior action scores).

To put it simply, they're just exercises of pure brawn and melancholy. Like I said before, it's serviceable and complementary to the context of the film, but outside, on their own, it's borderline intolerable to me.


Mephariel2017-07-04 20:07:58
If you are talking about isolated listening experience, then I think Interestellar is the only Nolan score that I really enjoy listening to from beginning to end. It is undeniable however that some of Zimmer's best cues came out of his Nolan scores: "Time" from Inception, "Like Dog Chasing Cars" from The Dark Knight, "No Time for Caution" from Interstellar. But I disagree with your idea that all his Nolan score sounds the same. I don't think Batman sounds like Man of Steel or Interstellar.

I also disagree when you said his Nolan scores are only "serviceable." Interstellar is one of the greatest scores of all time imo, and is absolutely magical when watched with the movie. I would almost say the score drove the film more than the other way around. It is also Zimmer's best work since Angels and Demons.

The Dark Knight is not one of my favorites, but it has more soul and identity than almost any other superhero scores out there. If you think about all the Marvel scores, I serious can't remember a single note from those movies other than The Avengers theme and Patrick Doyle's incredible score for Thor. But I can remember Zimmer's two note motif no problem as well as the progression leading to those notes.

The one thing that I agree is probably the fact that Zimmer's career at this point could use more Howard or Verbinski style scoring. I am really looking forward to Dunkirk, but we really don't need another solemn, dignify, reflective score from Zimmer about war.



mpolonest123 2017-07-04 22:27:05
@Nick

To each his own, I can understand why the scores you mentioned may not work for some people. For me, TDK works because it is basically world-building in musical form. You have the insane sound design for Joker, the traditional scoring for Harvey, and the pure Zimmer action/chord progressions for Batman. Some sections may be generic sound design (an issue I had with Batman Begins) but from start to finish it tells a story, and basically revolutionized action music when it came out. You definitely have to judge it as a sum of its parts.

Now Inception on the other hand, is somewhat overrated imo. It's a good score, and has a great blend of electronic styles that match perfectly with the film, but doesn't offer the same variety or development as something like At World's End. People just seem to really connect with "Time"


Mephariel2017-07-05 01:03:06
@mpolonest123

Definitely. I love the concept of Inception's score: blending electronic guitar with classical arrangements. But the score is just a tad too underdeveloped to me. The cues are all interesting but not fleshed out enough. Conceptually, the score is incredible, but the execution just fell short.

And yes, without question "Time" elevated the score, or else Inception wouldn't even be top 20 on my list of Zimmer scores. "Time" is just one of those special cues that captures your emotions into a bubble every time it plays. Your life literally flash before your eyes when listening to it. Introspective and moving. Simple, yet profound.


Bolidzar2017-07-05 22:10:14
Interesting. I think that Nolan brings out a genuine side of Zimmer that results in orginal performances as opposed to recycled cues for movies past (Gladiator/PotC). That is one thing I've always loved about their relationship.


Ian McCarthy2017-07-06 01:53:56
Bolidzar - you make a good point; I think I've listened to all of the Nolan/Zimmer scores, and I don't recall any apparent temp-tracking or reuse of cues, except in the case of something like TDKR reusing cues from the previous Nolan Batman films. Nonetheless, I think the issues of these scores generally being slow, churning, lacking melody, etc remain.


future2017-07-06 10:39:06
no reuse of temp-tracks or other cues? what about the 'time'-cue, where all girls screaming out loud when they hear the first tones? it's just a 'journey to the line' 2.0, which zimmer itself said that in an interview.

I understand why there are only 11 tracks, but I hope we get more demos and suites in the future.


Edmund Meinerts2017-06-28 13:07:13
Those 11 tracks could be each over ten minutes long and the album be pushing two hours for all you know.


Waymann2017-06-28 13:13:46
This album will probably around 1 hour... Inception had 12 tracks and was 49 minutes without the two bonus tracks.


Ahmad 2017-06-28 14:14:22
Definitely not two hours though since CDs are limited to 74-80mins of audio. I was hoping for an extended digital deluxe edition.


mpolonest123 2017-06-28 15:26:10
While it would be unusual for a Zimmer/Nolan collab to not have any suites, we still don't know how much music is in the film itself. Take 12YAS for example; a 2 hour movie with only 40 minutes of score. For all we know, this release might be 80% of the music written.... or more.

Now if it's anything like Inception (which is such a disappointing album) then this will be a letdown.


MrZimmerFan2017-06-28 15:29:16
I love Inception

;P


Ahmad2017-06-28 15:33:31
The movie is 1H47Mins long with credits. If credits are 7 minutes long, we're left with a 100 minute movie (who knows how much music was written/used). Not to mention the relentless pace. I want to believe that we might get everything we want/need out of this release but I'm really not sure.


mpolonest123 2017-06-28 16:09:06
@MrZimmerFan Oh I love Inception too, it's a great score. But that album situation though.,.. missing some major cues. At least Interstellar was a solid release, only missing one major track.


JBSO992017-06-29 10:35:05
@mpolonest123 But that one track got us out of our mind because they did many different releases, and I think that until the compete score appeared, we couldn't heard it. Luckily it didn't took it too long to appear.

Also I cannot wait for this score, I love all collaborations between Zimmer and Nolan and I hope they do a release with suites or demos or something like that like in Interstellar.

And one last thing, If the movie is about 107 minutes long we may get a very complete release in this album. I cannot wait!!!

I'll never forget how thrilling it was when I watched Interstellar, once the cd was released after the movie, because Hans and Nolan wanted us to feel the images and sound together. I'll do the same with Dunkirk and all further movies with these amazing director and composer.


Mephariel2017-06-27 08:48:33
Yeah, I don't think I can help it, but I really want to watch the movie first before listening to the score.

With Interstellar, it was a magical experience, especially when Cornfield Chase was playing and No Time for Caution melding perfectly with the docking scene.


Waymann2017-06-27 09:25:38
I always like hearing a score first before I go in. Especially with a film like this. When I haven't heard the score first I pay too much attention to the music so I can take everything in but then I stop using attention to the movie itself. But in case with Dunkirk the movie comes out few day before the score gets released in my country.

I wonder if there will be a special edition too. The latest albums from Hans that came out on the WaterTower label all had a special edition release as well.

I don't know if I should pre-order it or wait a couple weeks to see whether a double CD edition will follow. Would be good to know...


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-23 16:02:48
There won't be a 2 CD.

Anyway the film is pretty short, 1h45, so I guess Hans everything he needed in this release.

Well I hope Hans "could" credit everybody and disqualify himself from the "FYC" award races like he loves to... But not easy with a Nolan movie !


Iamtommie2017-06-23 16:46:03
Why does evrybody assume that the album will be short. Mayne the ttack lengths are 10 or maybe 16 minutes long. He's done it before on Crimson Tide. This had 5 tracks and an hour of playtime.
So who knows. Mayne it's a score more than 1 hour.


Kalman2017-06-23 17:30:50
Thanks for the info, Hybrid! Anyway, it's really strange that a war epic is maybe Nolan's shortest film so far. He barely seems to be able to make a movie under 140 minutes.


Mephariel2017-06-23 18:34:06
I suspect this film is all about intensity. I think none of the characters will get an introduction. The movie will just start in the middle of the war.


sverige19772017-06-24 19:43:15
Is Dunkirk also released on vinyl?


isildur2017-06-24 20:49:27
@Mephariel, You are right. And it is not exactly a war film. It's more like a suspense thriller. Whether they'll get home (we know they will) but it's more about how they will and how each of them experience this journey.

Alexander2017-06-23 15:16:43
I hope that Hans will punch out his next big thing with Dunkirk and I hope that they will not use electronics that much. It is a Hans Zimmer score so for sure there will be electronics but I hope on something that sounds like "Journey to the line" or inception for sure. You know what would be cool ?! To hear something that sounds like the live version on "Journey to the line" for sure another melody but something that is as mighty as the live version. I really like the drums in it at the end they put much more pressure in it and make it sound heavier. I don't mean the drum solo at the end but the part before that when the main melody kicks in.


...2017-06-23 15:38:57
I hope Hans does something inventive and interesting with the orchestra and not just relies on electronics! The best zimmer scores are in my opinion where the orchestra does the heavy lifting and not the synths!

The fact that Nolan said throw out the percussion and string ostinatos when they did Interstellar is a good sign and I hope Dunkirk won't go back to that style!

Funnily enough this has always been one of my favorite melodies throughout HZ's career, particularly the "dancing string" variation from Hannibal.

Would Lois's theme from MoS and the Oscorp motif from ASM2 also count as this?

And for that matter, the "Woad" theme at 5:50 in Woad to Ruin definitely uses the riff.

Same question about "solo Zimmer" - Interstellar felt really special for that. :) I'm expecting Steve Mazzaro in some capacity, though.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-06 15:41:04
I know who worked on it but I'm waiting for the "official" credits before dropping everything, it was not an easy journey (but it rarely is !) !


Joshua2017-05-07 20:56:45
Hybrid, you saying that this was not an easy journey really is interesting. I was thinking about this about a week ago when I read an interview with Zimmer, and he said he was having to finish cues for Dunkirk on the tour bus between shows! And it just struck me as odd because in the past Zimmer and Nolan seem to wrap post fairly early on. With it being 2 months from the release and Zimmer is still working on it seemed strange. Very interested to hear what happened here.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-07 21:02:25
And Hans still has a faithful lieutenant working on it on site while he's touring ! Not unknown to Nolan ! ;)


Joshua2017-05-07 21:33:32
Wow, and the plot thickens lol.


Mephariel2017-05-07 22:18:11
Hybrid, is this is synth score primarily or are there going to be orchestrated sections?

Looking back, I think maybe he took on too many projects last year. He started Dunkirk in January 2016 right? In between then and now, he was involved in The Crown, Planet Earth II, Hidden Figures, The Boss Baby while having 2 months off on tour.



Ahmad2017-05-07 23:37:45
Zoe Zimmer (Hans' daughter) shared a photo and a video of Hans and Chris in a studio recording a brass section. I hope that answers your question.


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-08 01:53:30
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that none of those four projects you listed there, Mephariel, were exactly hands-on ones for Hans... ;)


Joshua2017-05-08 20:14:22
Yeah, Hans and Nolan's relationship has been super experimental since the beginning. Nolan encourages it, so I doubt Nolan would be the cause of the headaches (though i could be wrong). But to me this reeks of studio interference.


Joshua2017-05-08 20:15:43
And yeah, I doubt it has anything to do with Hans' other projects he had last year. His role in those seemed minimal.


Mike (OTM)2017-05-08 20:38:00
Alright, so this one is definitely a co-score, then. D'you think the other guy working on it will get front cover credit, or no? You can never tell with Zimmer's projects. Seems to be that credits depend on a whim. Ha.


Joshua2017-05-08 21:17:36
God how awesome would it be if it was James Newton Howard again. (Wishful thinking...)


Mike (OTM)2017-05-08 23:33:51
Well, JNH did work on Hans Zimmer Live recently and posted a FB video about it. Maybe there's more to this than we've been told! ;)

Sadly, though, the realistic side of me doubts it.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-08 23:49:02
I talked with James there ! (I'm even on that video at some point ! lol ;))

And no he's quite busy with his own stuff !


Joshua2017-05-09 00:44:19
Well we know it cant be Steve because he's on the road with Zimmer. My money is on Lorne ;)


isildur2017-05-09 07:31:15
"Not unknown to Nolan!" Well, it's obviously Lorne. He did work extensively on Inception. So, no worries. Lorne knows what to do.


isildur2017-05-21 15:12:36
Told ya! Now, officially it's Lorne.

This score in my mind will be a masterpiece. I can't explain why, I just do. I wonder how similar or disimilar to The Thin Red Line.


Kalman2017-05-10 12:28:18
I really hope you're right because what I heard in the latest trailer didn't convince me at all. I hope it was not from Hans' score (can anyone confirm it is from the actual score or not?) Or, at least, that the score itself will be much, much better.


JBSO992017-05-10 17:07:41
Well, the music from the trailers, if it's from the composer of the film, generally is music for making the trailer look awesome and they use cheap composing ways to create this, but the score it's usually by far better than the trailer music.
And it's Zimmer with Nolan, nothing bad can come from this two working together!


TomMuso2017-05-10 19:54:25
Remember when Balfe did he trailer for Inception and that included Hans music in it .


no2017-05-10 22:24:31
Lorne didn't compose from Dunkirk.
He said official Facebook page.


Mephariel2017-05-10 22:47:27
I wonder who then. Rupert Gregson-Williams?


Joshua2017-05-10 23:21:50
Kawczynski?! Is that mate why he's not on tour this time?


Joshua2017-05-10 23:23:20
*maybe


no2017-05-11 03:30:02
I don't think Hans giving responsibility Kawczynski. Hans i guess finish March on the Dunkirk score. Maybe again solo job Hans.


Andreas2017-05-11 10:12:53
It would be great if it was Balfe . Call of Duty was one of the best game scores. They are a great team


no2017-05-11 17:21:11
Lorne is not co-composer on Dunkirk dude.


Andreas2017-05-11 19:31:01
Why not Dude ! Why shouldn't he get credit for what he does? He was all over the last Kung Fu Panda and didn't get any credit !


Mike2017-05-11 22:50:46
I agree it would be great for Balfe to get proper great. Not sure why he doesn't seem to be given proper co credit ? Sherlock for a co - producer .


Olivia2017-05-12 02:17:38
Probably is Balfe. He is scoring something for Warner. Source: facebook.


Mephariel2017-05-12 02:48:36
Balfe could be talking about Geostorm, not Dunkirk.


Joshua2017-05-14 01:03:16
@no was literally wrong about everything he said above lol :):):):) Very cool that Balfe is back on a Nolan film.


Joseph Solano2017-05-14 01:32:01
@JBS099 The music from the teaser might be because it sounds a lot like Winter Soldier.


Andreas2017-05-14 21:33:46
Wow wow wow !!! Balfe is back on board . This will be good and very excited now


Olivia2017-05-21 05:57:21
No one orchestrator? Hum... The score entire will electronic, then?

Mike (OTM) reply Replies: 4 || 2017-05-13 23:17:14
Hybrid, was Lorne the guy working "on-site"? And is this another "music produced by Lorne Balfe" score, i.e., co-composed by Lorne Balfe?


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-13 23:35:47
I don't think so, Hans was on it for a year and a half. Lorne's been there for a couple of months, Andrew probably more. I think they're FINALLY done by now (about time !!! lol) !


mpolonest123 2017-05-13 23:42:17
If Satnam is doing some additional music expect some killer percussive elements...


NM2017-05-14 00:24:49
What the hell is Lorne made of? The guy never stops writing!


Mephariel2017-05-14 01:31:20
I wonder when the musicians will be listed and if Tino Guo or Martin Tillman has any role in this. Cello performances seem like a staple in a solemn, dark, moody Zimmer film.

Lorne is making additional score for it! aaaaaaaaaa!!

Thankyou Hans I was very down last night and just listening to your music gave me a big lift. Thanks for sharing your gift with us.

Can't wait of this! Chris and Hans' collaboration never disappoint.
