All those people who complain that Hans isn't sticking to more traditional scores forget that at heart, hes a synth man who loves his synthesizers and keyboards. Hans is just as much as a musical artist as Bowie or Paul Mccartney, in the sense that he goes through musical trends and his style adapts or changes. That's just the way it is, enjoy it for what it is. <br><br>Crucify me for comparing a human to David Bowie!Wow! Stephen Barton worked on a lot of the important cues here, huh?I'm with Edmund in that I'd love for Hans to win more Oscars, but not this score. I feel like even Blade Runner 2049 is more deserving of an award than this. Sure, it works great in the film, but that shouldn't be reason enough for an Oscar. I feel like Desplat's nominated score is more deserving than this one. <br><br>"But this one has a unique sound and recording!"<br><br>Okay... a lot of scores have that. A lot of Zimmer's work has that. Doesn't make them all masterpieces.<br><br>"But we have to spite those evil reviewers who hate this score!"<br><br>Why do you let their opinion get in the way of your enjoyment? If you love it enough, the critics' opinions should only make you enjoy it more because you see something in it they don't. <br><br>I agree with George in that Hans needs to go back to a melodic sound. I don't think whether this score wins or not will change Hans' mind on that, but I do want his next Oscar winner to mean something other than, "Oh cool! I won this award because I made weird sounds!" (Which by the way, involves things like programming and a lot of other technical adjustments that have nothing to do with Hans' composing ability)."The thing that I'm proudest about Dunkirk is you can't separate it from the film."<br>- Hans Zimmer, GQI understand, but it does not make sense.<br>You're arguing that the score for a movie released in January this year was produced before of the score of a movie that went to theaters in July. If Balfe started working on "12 strong" a year before the movie release, the same can be said of Dunkirk. It is easy to infer that the Dunkirk's score has been working since the middle of 2016! Or even before, because of the tours that Zimmer has done.<br>The music/sound design, even being simple, was not made and recorded between January and May of last year.
Olive  that is when it was announced !!! Not when he did itBalfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .
I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.
Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before DunkirkHere's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.

Where in the blue crap, is the ACTUAL soundtrack. There are tons of music missing even from the expanded score, and the expanded score has fake music that is not on the actual movie. Where, oh were is the actual legit score. I see a bunch of music cues but nowhere to download it. I've been on the search for as long as the movie came out. Can anyone at all help??


Hybrid-Fan2014-08-29 09:31:41
with actual you mean the complete or the recording sessions? you can't buy them, as it isn't offered for buying.

I seriously think that "Sniper - Border Post" and "The Journey - Kopano Part III" cues are two of the very best Hans has ever composed (if it was him).


Mike2014-01-07 17:23:44
Thanks for pointing them out. They've improved my morning.

My goodness, the end of Sniper - Border Post really is incredible. I can't believe it's been so long since I've listened to it!

What is this "Sniper-Border Post" track? I don't see anything by that name in the list above.


Mike2014-01-07 17:51:11
From the expanded score.

I just died and went to heaven. The whole reason I dug for the fake expanded score was for the infiltration music, to my disappointment. Now we wait and see for this tearjearking masterpiece to receive its complete score.

Bioscope, a word of advice: don't get your hopes up.

Anyone know the source/status of the expanded score? Is it genuine or a DVD rip? Its around 70 mins long.

Even worse than that, it's music not from the film...

Thank you

Ive looked at a couple and they seem genuine, i.e. actual music from the film.

If not, and I am wrong, why do people do this?!

Hi , everyone
Thanks Hanzi for this wonderful score. the "small piece for doumbek and strings" is the amazing!
but there are still some missing track (Movie DVD, time 0:18mn thru 0:20mn), could that be Kopano part IV! can anyone knows the title. Is there a more complete score. Thanks,

Kopano Part III - never listened to something like that. Every single word is Africa, every note is a scream for freedom and love. They sing their hearts to heaven and to the whole world.

Track 9 is EPIC -
It's easily one of the most moving action pieces he's ever composed.
It's a shame that it was practically inaudible in the film due to all the sound effects...
