Was this score similar to Rush (a band score where everyone writes everything) or is it indeed mostly Zimmer? It's older, and his older scores tend to be more traditional in the crediting area. :P
Nope, Heitor Pereira & Jeff Rona did write themes here. I see no bands, except the VA songs.
You misunderstand what Mike meant; I believe he is at least partly right, some of the music was scored like a jam session, where music was improvised that later became honed into the score. Mike didn't mean actual bands did music for the film.
That's right... They were like a band jamming in the studio. The music was recorded and some of it ended up in the film, usually re-arranged depending on each sequence's needs. But basically, HZ wrote the main themes (Still, Vale of Plenty, Tribal War, Leave No Man Behind) but it was all played and arranged by the band itself during the jamming sessions or later. Some cues are credited to other musicians (Pereira for Mogadishu Blues, Rona for Bakara, Wesson for the ambient part from Chant...). "Ashes to Ashes" starts with some kind of improvisation on the electric cello by Martin Tillman, then the band starts to play all together.
There's a lot of unused / additional music that never ended up in the film.
I'm curious who did what in this entire score. I imagine off the bat that Zimmer did "Leave No Man Behind" and "Tribal War", but wasn't this score basically a bunch of jam sessions?
I think hunger is Zimmer isn't it?
MacArthur, unless you're willing to substantiate that claim, all anyone is going to read is "I HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT ANYTHING" on a post with your name on it.
My question is why wouldn't it be? let's just put it that way.
There's no reason why it wouldn't be...just like there's no reason why it would. My point is, if you don't have anything more than an "I think," without any reasoning or argument to back it up, then you're contributing jack shit to the discussion. It's like the internet version of talking because you like the sound of your own voice.
When Hybrid says a cue is by a certain composer, we listen because he has access to information we don't have. With you it's just random gut feelings and opinions without any convincing substance behind it whatsoever. Hence, why should we listen to you?
When did Hybrid say that it wasn't Zimmer. I didn't go against what he said If he says it, it's fine with me.
Does it say anything about Hunger being by a different Composer?
There's four additional music guys up there, so there is absolutely ZERO guarantee that the cue is by Zimmer alone. Similarly, there is ZERO guarantee that the cue ISN'T by Zimmer alone. Until we know more for sure, there is also ZERO point in slinging your "I thinks" around.
Yeah That I know but the guy on top seem to say that Zimmer didn't have a hand in it at all.
That's what baffled me I wasn't trying to throw in my opinion on it.
there is the recordings session out there. is it real?

So it is not real?
Combination of OST, songs used in the movie, music from the DVD bonus and some promotional cues from the musicians of the score... Everything is edited/chopped so that it looks "new", but, it's definitely fanmade.
ah ok, thank you very much dawn for your explanation :) it's still a nice version.
Well then, what are these ones:

There's an unreleased track named Leaving - Abduction, does anyone know the source of it? I heard its from DVD audio but I dont rememeber hearing it on the DVD menus??
i have heard of both of them. and i have asked the same qustion as you many times on this site whit out reply so... i could only guess that Leaving is maybe the same soundtrack as Solkdiers back on, but i dont know
Its a fake track, its an edit of Tall King Dub (source) crossfaded with the end of Hunger.
I really love the movie Black Hawk Down. It's your music that makes the movie itself. But the scene when Corporal James Edgar Smith Jr.. lies on the stretcher, Played course, "Leave No Man Behind" Piano version that I can not find anywhere. But keep up the good work! sorry for my English, I'm from Sweden:)
i could notice the rythem beat and tempo is so much close to the sound and timing of a black hawk rotor chopping the air in it's flight. i notice it special in Hunger and synchrotone and sure in Chant.
The blend of West and Eastern sentiments in the music is extraordinary and sums up the clash between cultures with pinpoint accuracy. It demonstrates that image and music can achieve a power that each on their own cannot reach...a masterpiece!...thanks

That“s the best soundtrack I have ever heard. It is very great and the moods fit into the movie. I really like "hunger" and "Barra Barra". We often hear it out in the desert when we are on patrol. Keep on going making so great music.
The language is Swahili ( Somali dialect). Swahili means ( coastal), it is used in Kenya, Somalia and Tanzania. Derived from the Arabic language ( 48%) is actually Arabic. However, the three countries use the same language but the dialects are different, like Egyptian, Algerian and Libyan, same language but different dialects
