My one hope is that this doesn't mean Chris Nolan will be tying Zimmer's hands behind his back for future scores. If he wants to do that here, okay. I can get over one score. But I hope Nolan doesn't keep calling for this non-melodic approach.That was one of my favorites, wish it was on the OST.Yeah, was also looking for that track.Nolan's liner notes, which explains a lot on the score :<br><br>"British people are raised on the story of Dunkirk. The events of the evacuation are sacred ground, not to be ventured onto without great care. Daunting for a filmmaker. But the things that place Dunkirk so firmly at the heart of a nation's self-image are the very qualities that make it one of the greatest stories in human history. Irresistible to a filmmaker.<br><br>This film required a remarkable creative team, and Hans Zimmer, as well as having been a valued member in the past, knows how to assemble his own great team. From our first meeting, where I described to the percussionist, Satnam Ramgotra, the unusual rhythmic structure of the script and how it needed to be amplified by the music, through the finishing touches applied by Lorne Balfe during our last weeks of mixing, the importance of teamwork was paramount. The process nicely echoed the circumstances of the events we were trying to honour- a triumph of communal effort, not individual heroism.<br><br>When I called Hans one night with a one word suggestion- "Nimrod", I wasn't sure he'd accept experimenting with an existing theme for the climax of the film. To my surprise, he knew just who to call to achieve the deconstruction of Elgar's monumental theme, a theme as beloved to the English as Dunkirk itself, often played at ceremonial occasions and funerals. It's a theme which (I never admitted to Hans) I am incapable of hearing without feeling the surprising weight of my father's coffin on my shoulder. Hans brought in Benjamin Wallfisch, who, in collaboration with the great music editor Alex Gibson and myself, fashioned a modern reworking that grows out of the sights and sounds of the movie- tapping the original's resonances without feeling unearned. Hans's brass accents complete the piece's power to move without sentimentalizing.<br><br>Hans went on to incorporate Elgar's theme elsewhere in the score, a score that on this album has been divided into cues, but which in the film plays as one long piece with a unifying and complex rhythmic and tonal structure. The structure of the screenplay itself builds upon the shepherd tone concepts I first explored with composer David Julyan in the soundtrack for "The Prestige", but here Zimmer's team (in particular Andy Page and Andrew Kawczynski) and I added a whole new rhythmical structure. This can't be fully represented on the album, but in the film it is able to integrate sound effects and even story structure into the very fabric of the music in a new and unique manner.<br><br>The rigid structure, to which we adamntly stuck, at times proved frustrating for the musicians, but they persevered and produced extraordinary cues based on unusual solutions (such as a recording of my watch that Hans and his team adapted into many different rhythmic voices). The disciplined procedural approach stopped the music for "Dunkirk" from ever resorting to arbitrary cinematic emotionalism, something Hans and I always felt was vital, given the inherent emotional heft of the real life events. This has been a long and hard journey, but I am proud of the final results, and hope that you will share my appreciation for the talent of the artists who worked so hard for so long on this score.<br><br>CHRISTOPHER NOLANI don't think emotion and melodies = Oscar worthy. Dunkirk's score fits in with the movie far better than Chappie.
Saw the film again last night and there are a ton of great cues missing, especially from the first half of the film. It's a crime the cue when they carry the stretcher onto the ship wasn't included.The answer is: Christopher Nolan ;-)It doesn't crossfade as much as, say, The Dark Knight Rises or Inception, but there is  very rarely dead air. I haven't listened enough times to determine when it does and doesn't crossfade, but the tracks are, at least, very closely edited together.I Love Hans' stuff but this score didn't really do it for me. I don't see how people are repping this as Oscar worthy but trash something like CHAPPiEs score, something with actual emotion and melodies.This soundtrack will win an oscar . It's great to see Balfe back with Zimmer. Dream team
Does anyone know whether the cd version actually has the cues crossfading into each other? Since in the film the score plays almost as an entire cue, it would have made sense if they did that. It sounds like some cues in the digital version end kind of awkwardly, like 'Impulse' and 'Home'. These cues fade out while there still seems to be some instrumentation progression going on. Hence the crossfade thought...Oooh credits. I'm guessing from these it's going to be disqualified from entering Oscar nominations because<br>1. Use of a classical musical piece throughout<br>2. More than one guy is credited.<br><br>Anyway, that's how Hans always liked, crediting everyone.I have to agree on the soundtrack being mostly unlistenable...<br><br>This is nothing like Inception, or even Interstellar.<br><br>I seriously doubt there's going to be a big stink made about any track from this score the likes of "No Time For Caution" back in 14...<br><br>I tried...I tried real hard to find something to keep me interested in this score, but I personally couldn't find anything. Most of it is tension building noise. I'm sure it's great within the film, but outside the film? Not so much.<br><br>I guess Zimmer is on "retirement mode" now...He's slowing down and not wanting to produce the rockin stuff that he used to...I can't blame him, but still...This score sounds like a total experiment.Sorry bud...<br><br>Its not.Hi everyone, does anyone know the name of the music in the Dunkirk Trailer 1 at 01:30? It doesn't not seem to be in the score, I'm assuming it's not in the movie, I'm going to see it Sunday. If anyone knows the music or where to find it, please Comment, thanks!
Tina had a lot of work to do here!Each time I listen to "The Oil," I'm convinced it can't get any louder and larger, but it does. If you don't look at the track time, you're just constantly thinking it's about to end, and yet it somehow continues to up the ante until you almost can't handle anymore!I was on three concerts so far and just at the one at Frankfurt some band members came down from the stage after the concert. I didn'f got a autograph but I did photos with nile marr and nick glennie smith. But if you would ask some of the band members I am sure they will say "ok perhaps I can arrange it" would try it this way :)I really like it. It's a clever score that sounds like it had an awful lot of thought put into it.A fanmade.<br><br>Hybrid probably took the track from here because the guy behind the channel was stating that it was original without being. Leaving the link here would only give him more audience.

The film version from "Fire In The Galley" never appeared on any of those complete version ?


Mr Tweedy2016-11-10 23:51:14
Nope... Film version sounds more like a music editor work... making a loop out of the main theme and spreading it out on top of the drums. That's why it's probably not featured on any expanded versions of the score.

Does this edition contain the missing drum overdubs and distorted electric guitar sounds in Akula, that were missing from the previous expanded leak?

I heard these unreleased tracks on a stream site that got bought out recently and they sounded genuine, although the fire outbreak score sounds a little different from the film version.


Mr Tweedy2012-04-11 19:21:35
Isn't this tracklist different and more complete than the expanded that surfaced last year ?! 91 minutes ?!

Thanks Per. What about the 2CD one?

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
The "new" stuff is just a rip from the film, yes.

You can clearly hear sound effects here and there. It's in mono in parts. It's got weird combinations with the OST. To name a couple of issues...

I will be happy to give a more detailed explanation if that's required, or wanted !

Btw. if the end of track 9 on this very big fake version is the main reason why you want it so bad ... don't bother. Go with the Dirty Pictures submission agency promo instead (track 1, "11m20B") :)

Yeah so wheres the Opening music and the other 2 unreleased cues from, listed below on the 1CD? DVD rips?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-13 00:00:00
The only good sources you can find for a Crimson Tide is :

- The OST

- A Nick Glennie-Smith promo (Dirty Pictures) containing 3 unreleased cues (listed on this website) :

"Crisis Averted" / "Court Of Inquiery" / "This Is Not A Drill"

That's all... :P

Where do the unreleased parts come from, especially the opening track?

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-03-13 00:00:00
Listed below the title of each track is the corresponding cue from the commercially available album

1. Opening / Conflict / Alabama:
The first minute and 25 seconds of this track is unreleased material, but isn’t anything particularly special. The sound quality isn’t the best either.
The rest is the first 8 minutes and 25 seconds of “Alabama”

2. Resurrection:
The last 9 minutes and 47 seconds of “Alabama”

3. Little Ducks:
“Little Ducks”

4. 1SQ (alternate):
The first 11 minutes and 9 seconds of “1SQ”
As far as I can tell this is exactly the same as the1SQ from track 8 of this bootleg, so I’m not even sure why it would be considered an alternate

5. Mutiny:
“Mutiny”

6. Day 12:
8:23 – 14:04 from “1SQ”

7. 3… 2… 1…:
This is another previously unreleased track, but contains parts that are so similar to other parts of the album that it hardly matters. (In fact, it sounds like most of this *is* made up of other segments, possibly arranged by a fan)

8. 1SQ / 3:00:
The first 16 minutes and 13 seconds of “1SQ”

9. 2SQ / November 2nd:
The last 2 minutes of “1SQ”
The remainder of the track is a third unreleased cue, which is a nice (albeit short) variation of the main theme. It’s quite good, but it’s still not worth going through the trouble of finding this bootleg.

10. End Credits:
“Roll Tide”

Overall, I would not recommend seeking this one out. The only reason why anyone should really want it is if they are not satisfied with the extremely long tracks on the commercial release - but if you own a music editing program you can just edit it yourself based on the information I’ve provided. The end of track 9 is good, but like I said, it’s not worth going through the trouble of finding the bootleg to get it.

Is it possible to get an explanation of what tracks do/don't contain new material not heard on the original album? And, maybe, whereabouts during these tracks... Most of it seems very similar to the commercial release.

Un excellent score du compositeur pour un bon film du tres sous-estimé Tony Scott ( The Last Boy-Scout, Enemy Of The State )
Hans Zimmer a ecrit un excellent theme principal, -trés utilisé lors des bandes annonces des blockbuster- ainsi qu'un excellent End Titles

Unfortunately, a deep let down. I got the CD via eBay and was expecting an encore to the wonderful score which is my second favorite after Gladiator (all-time).

It turns out that the tracks on this CD are basically cropped and chopped from the original score - only the first two minutes of the CD and two other very brief sections contain music not heard on the original.

I am forced to think twice before obtaining expanded music - although that is a pity seeing how the Gladiator 2 score is such a wonderful expression of Hans Zimmer's work.
