Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.Maybe you have a download link?Download link?I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be fun
I love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.Not any more lame than the Balfe cue
Lorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lolSo is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(
Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?That’s literally the best part of the score though. But it’s typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)In ASCAP there is a cue "HUNT DRUNKEN WEIRDNESS" - is this by a chance an alias to "Italian Party", which is absent in ASCAP. Though there are different credits Zimmer/Wesson vs Zimmer/Klebe.

Hey Hybrid, was listening to the "HZ's Obsession" on your youtube channel. Real nice spotting dude.


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-04 22:43:42
;)

Hans once said it was a mix between Dies Irae and a German nursery rhyme...

For sure it has haunted him somehow for many years ! lol


isildur2017-06-04 23:14:54
Wow! No wonder all those tracks are amazing. Dies Irae inspiring also makes sense since all those movies somehow deal with the concept of death.


Vivien2017-06-05 00:21:25
I love this melody since I heard it in Angels and Demons !


mpolonest123 2017-06-05 01:42:19
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?


mpolonest123 2017-06-05 01:48:59
And for that matter, the "Woad" theme at 5:50 in Woad to Ruin definitely uses the riff.

Great video Hybrid btw!


Agustin2017-06-07 00:32:28
In the road to el Dorado there are some epic versions of this motiff, with chours and stuff.

I had never noticed it was also in interstellar until now. I think, at this point, it's like the wilhelm scream of Hans music, it has to be in every soundtrack.


Nonore2017-06-09 01:30:16
Where could we find this video, please ?

Thank you very much, Hybrid !

wow cool youtube channel Hybrid! thanks for sharing the soundtrack suites :)

Borrtex reply Replies: 1 || 2017-06-06 14:40:37
Two days ago, we did an interview with Hans in Prague and he said, that Dunkirk was the most demanding score he has ever worked on! :) So, I guess we have something to be looking for!!


Lynk2017-06-06 15:50:31
mmm... Last time we heard the man say something in those lines was during Da Vinci Code.

Ahmad reply Replies: 4 || 2017-05-25 16:19:53
Tina Guo recorded cello for Dunkirk. I'm really excited.


Bioscope2017-05-25 17:20:26
Ditto :)


Mephariel2017-05-26 08:25:03
She did 32 hours of Cello work for this...wow.


JBSO992017-05-26 12:26:35
32 hours!!! I think this will be played as a lament in a slow-motion scene where it looks like they're gonna get killed. Cannot wait for it!


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-26 14:15:59
There's no kill like overkill. Plus another thing that'll sound good for the inevitable Hans/Nolan PR train I guess. *shrug*

Lorne Balfe attached to score Horse Soldiers.

They guy is everywhere.


Anton2017-05-24 23:10:50
Just read that on film music reporter . Lorne has to be the most in demand composer at the moment . Amazing how busy he is and really enjoying his score to Genius

Mephariel reply Replies: 17 || 2017-05-05 23:45:30
Excited for this!

Hybrid, is the music from the newest trailer actually from the score?

Also, is this a solo effort from Hans Zimmer?


Mike (OTM)2017-05-06 15:10:53
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.

Joseph Solano reply Replies: 18 || 2017-05-10 03:45:37
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!!

Dimitris Krommidas2017-05-06 00:13:23
Yes!


Ahmad2017-05-06 01:19:22
Hell yeah. I'm still wondering if the music in the second half of the first trailer (trailer #2) is Hans or not. I guess we won't get any confirmation until the movie/score comes out in July.


JBSO992017-05-06 12:00:43
It isn't too soon for this? Well I don't mind. I would love to hear it as soon as possible but until the movie, probably we won't get to hear anything. The music from the trailers is from Zimmer?
