Seems like Scala & Kolacny Brothers.In what way is it "obvious", exactly, that Djawadi had more influence on that Training cue than Zimmer? It's basically just a statement of Zimmer's theme, and doesn't really sound notably "Djawadi-esque" to me in any way.Thanks for the credits updateA bit of who did what...Lorne also confirmed that he took charge of Mr.Charles, and without saying that Lorne was on the good side of Score in general, so his influence was substantially high.
Hybrid confirmed that training is composed by Ramin and Hans and it is obvious that Ramin's influence is superior to that of Hans.are we expecting the score for dark phoenix to be released in a week or so, if the movie itself drops early june?Not as simply as that.... Training is Ramin's arrangement of a Hans theme, and the core of Mr. Charles when the Fischer theme isn't playing is a Hans idea, too, as far as I know. Take the Zimmer out and those moments wouldn't be the same.I think Balfe working with Nolan would have done a great jobBob,The Training is basically Ramin Djawadi and Mr.Charles is Balfe
I hope these two team up again. Zimmer's score is the main driving force for some memorable scenes. Just a few<br>Batman Begins-The Training<br>TDK- Joker crash the party, Gordon's speech and ending<br>Inception - Time, Mr.Charles, <br>TKDR - the climb, imagine the fire and orphan<br>Interstellar-Stay, Docking, coward, mountain<br>Dunkirk - well the entire movieJustin Hurwitz I can see. I enjoyed La La Land and First Man. But Both Hurwitz and Göransson are several notches above Lorne Balfe. <br><br>I think 80/100 directors would rather work with Göransson than Balfe.I really believe that Nolan has made a mistake as a composer.I think Lorne Balfe, David Julyan or Justin Hurwitz would be much better options than Ludwig Goransson.Interesting news. <br><br>Geoff Zanelli is one of those composers who I’ve loved his additional music over his solo efforts, Pirates 5 excluded. I hope he gets a chance to write some great fantasy music for this, regardless if he reuses JNH’s themes or not.I think I am the only one, who would be glad about David Julyan return.<br><br>I really like his music for early Nolan's films, especially Insomnia, and it's what i can call an "atmospheric experience".<br><br>Don't know how his music fits for espionage timetraveling movie, but, for me, i'st would be something interesting to hear.
@mpolonest123: those Pemberton scores are indeed pure gold, very cool on album but insanely good in the movie. My favorite is still his King Arthur, that was a beast of a score that stuck with the movie like glue and really enhanced Guy Ritchie's dark, twisted, trippy vision.*3 thingsSure, but there's two things to consider. <br>1). Pirates has such an iconic sound that it'd be really stupid for them to suddenly abandon it at #5. Especially when we hired the guy who has worked on the previous 4. 2). Maleficent, as successful as it was to warrant a sequel, isn't quite as well known in the score department, despite being well received by those who have heard it. 3). Because Zanelli worked on all Pirates, he had enough familiarity with the sounds and motifs that he knew where to go once he led the ship. In Maleficent's case, he's taking over from a previous composer, and is working with a director who likely only knows his work on POTC5. As such, there's no knowing yet if he might be compelled to continue on from JNH, or if it's decided he just does his own thing.<br><br>I'm happy that Geoff at the very least has a safe career at Disney, considering two of their recent live action successes has had him involved. However, considering I hear his recently work hasn't been his best, JNH likely would've benefited from returning to a world that had some of his best material after he wasn't given the opportunity to do so with Glass. As such, it really is a severely missed opportunity, even if newer blood is getting more opportunities.Just listening to this again. It really is a best of both score. What I think is so great, is that you can hear both of the brothers' own voice but they blend so well together!! Really really great score!<br><br>It's a really remarkable score, the swifts in tone between dramatic and jazz is top-notch. It's higher on favorite list from 2019 already, than I thought it would ever be.<br><br>Give me more Gregson-Williams brothers scores!!!!!!I was hoping for JNH, but we'll see what he does. JNH's themes were amazing zo it would be stupod not to use them. But he used the Pirates themes, so I'm feeling actually quite ok about it

Just saw the first episode on Netflix. There are tons of music that are not on the album. I wonder if there will ever be a complete release.


Ds2018-12-22 23:27:54
I remember in the first episode, there's a moment with gigantic waves and a massive organ playing. Yep, a complete score would be very much welcome :-p


GR72019-04-07 14:36:17
Yes, sadly, this "interstellar" moment isnt on the released score

"BBC Studios has announced that Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe will compose the theme and score for the upcoming BBC Earth natural history series One Planet, Seven Worlds. The show is presented and executive produced by Sir David Attenborough and will reveal how each distinct continent has shaped the unique animal life found there. Each of the series’ seven episodes will transport viewers to a single continent and tell the story of its spectacular wildlife and iconic landscapes. Zimmer, Shea and Klebe have previously composed music for BBC’s Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II (for Bleeding Fingers Music). One Planet, Seven Worlds will premiere later this year on BBC One in the UK and on BBC America in the U.S."

Hans Zimmer and Anže Rozman will score Great Bear Rainforest.

"The main title theme for the film will be composed by the legendary Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer, with the score being composed by Anže Rozman for Bleeding Fingers Music, produced by Russell Emanuel."

From VitalThrills.com



Knight2018-12-18 22:30:42
Let's hope this one actually gets a score release cause 2018 was a lousy year for releases.


Sam2018-12-19 10:21:35
what a shame, this is so typical nowadays: "MAIN THEME BY THE UNBELIEVEAVABLE ALMIGHTY HAAAAAAAAAAANS ZIIIIIIIIIIIMMER (...ohandthescorebyxyz)"



Knight2018-12-19 12:05:02
Well Hans needs to do something during all this downtime :D


Anonymous2018-12-19 14:09:22
The main theme is usually the best part of those productions. It is good that they point it out who wrote it.


Mephariel2018-12-19 18:46:37
While I love to see Zimmer be involved in the whole thing, I am kind of excited to see new names in Bleeding Fingers Music having a chance to showcase themselves. I think this is for the best.


Martan2018-12-23 14:44:21
Cheap . Why does Zimmer lower himself to these projects ?


Knight2018-12-23 14:47:04
Lower himself? You wot m8 it's music


Martan2018-12-26 23:36:37
Yes lower himself .he shouldn’t be wasting his time writing music for project like this.Seems cheap


Knight2018-12-27 00:44:25
Project like this? Soo a nature documentary? Like Planet Earth and Blue Planet II?


Martan2018-12-27 12:15:11
Knight - I did not mean nature documentaries I mean just writing a theme and then farming it out to other people


Edmund Meinerts2018-12-27 15:30:29
aka something Hans Zimmer has been doing since about 1994?


Mephariel2018-12-27 16:46:00
Not sure how writing a theme is "lowering" himself.

Anyone know if Jasha's contributions made it on album?
He's uploaded his additionals to his website but I haven't cross-referenced any with the album. (aside from the main theme)


Mephariel2018-12-03 18:18:11
I always wonder about his contributions. Did he leave Bleeding Fingers or just the project?


Knight2018-12-03 18:36:46
According to Dave and Jacob, the composers for BPII were picked via a raffle, so Jasha was likely only kept on the project due to PEII.

Has the Radiohead-Song "Bloom" with Hans Zimmer been released somewhere in the meanwhile? I just can find the trailer version with background noise and voices


Mephariel2018-06-07 23:15:49
I gave up waiting for it. I think it is never going to be released.

Mephariel reply Replies: 3 || 2017-10-30 08:33:56
Just finished listening to the whole score. It is mostly fantastic. Epic, powerful, and dynamic.

The main theme not as addicting and powerful as Planet Earth II, but better written, a bit more sophisticated, and just feels right for the subject matter.

Besides that, some of the best cues are the ones with vocals like "Surfing Dolphins," "A Forest Awakens," and "Ducks And Currents."

If you are looking for the more of a Zimmeresque cue, check out "Walrus: The Right Piece of Ice," which reminds me of many Zimmer solemn ending pieces like "Home" from The Lone Ranger.

Just as I suspect, the best Zimmer score this year.


Kekec2017-10-30 15:29:57
How much of it is actually Zinmmer's work? Just the main or end title, or did he compose more tracks this time?


...2017-10-30 16:44:46
He did more this time!

Just finished watching the serie today and I'm really sad since there is alot of great material not released in the soundtrack I wish one day the complete soundtrack released for this " the greatest documentary ever" for me.

I bought a 2CD version. It's, to my experience, very complete.

Planet Earth II has a 2CD release, but Blue Planet II?


Balfe2018-02-23 14:58:22
Some good music here but would be so much better if Zimmer hadn't had to homogenize it all again. He is a shameful corporation.

Beautiful score, perfectly fitting. Reminds me a little of 'The Land Before Time' feeling. Really like the theme, subtle but lovely. I also like how there is less tracks and the tracks are longer than PEII with a bit more weight. Too many short cues in the PEII soundtrack to really get into as a whole.


Anonymous2017-11-10 20:05:52
the shorter presentation here was better, surprisingly


Max Potcats2017-11-10 21:59:26
Any news for an official release of the 'Ocean Bloom' song?

Mike (OTM) reply Replies: 7 || 2017-10-30 21:44:15
This score, I have to say, moves me more than Planet Earth II did. Planet Earth II really pushed the "let's have an epic theme," which was fine, but said epic theme was kind of...generic. This theme sounds like more thought was put into it, and it sounds like Zimmer had a bit more of an imprint on this score, too. It's nice to hear some unabashedly melodic stuff from him in an era where experimenting with soundscapes seems to have become his thing.*

*yes, I'm waiting for disagreement on that last sentence... ;)


NM2017-10-30 22:11:32
Surfing Dolphins = Celebrate The Oscars v3? lol

This is a really fun, big thoughtful score and the orchestrations are beautiful.


George 2017-10-30 22:58:52
I'm just curious to know just how involved he was this time. He was pretty busy this year so its hard for me to imagine that he had a lot of time to have serious involvement. Although I hope I'm wrong haha, it'd be a nice to get a melodic movie score from him again. This is great!


Mephariel2017-10-31 00:36:15
It is also worth noting that Jasha Klebe wrote additional music for this score.

I think Zimmer did more this time than last time. Last time, it specifically stated that he only did the main theme. But with that said, I have a feeling most of it was him guiding rather than actually writing much.


Mike (OTM)2017-10-31 00:38:25
George, well, he no doubt did "The Blue Planet." (Watch me be wrong...)

He also, at least, co-wrote a track with Radiohead. But notice that, unlike Planet Earth II, it says, "Score by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea, and David Fleming." Planet Earth II had "theme by Hans Zimmer" as a separate heading.


Mephariel2017-10-31 03:55:51
Zimmer definitely wrote "The Blue Planet." In BBC's behind the scenes video, only Zimmer's name was on the cuesheet.


PG2017-10-31 07:27:33
Agreed that this is a lovely score. However, some parts of it sound very Edward Scissorhands to me. The Family Theme in particular.


Marts2017-11-01 04:56:34
Yeah, love hearing some orchestral melodic stuff again - still pretty minimal but I like that. I think the PEII theme fit that perfectly, and this theme does too. Puts you right into the big blue.
