Listening to all these fan made covers!!! They all are more than awesome. Its feels good how Hans Zimmer is inspiring the world around to create such a great music. Lots of applause to all the fans who have submitted their covers over here. Good luck !!!<br>I have been revisiting a lot of scores of the MCU leading up to Infinity War, and what I don't really understand is why they didn't used almost any of the previously established themes in this one. He even created a new theme for Captain America, when he could have used his own theme from Winter Soldier. In fact, I think Winter Soldier's theme is the only one returning. Age of Ultron, although it was a really chaotic score, at least had some continuity and was a lot of fun, but this score feels flat for the most part of it.<br><br>And I really enjoyed TWS but for me this was a step down. But I must recognize that there are some great action cues, especially in the Airport Battle, but apart from that I didn't found anything that remarkable.This might sound like a rather... odd question, but I did ask it when it came to Rogue One. Is John Powell going to use a 'classic' arrangement of the End Credits Suite, or is he writing something entirely new? The end credits theme is pretty much a staple of all the films so far and it would be interesting to know what Powell has in mind for his score there.And the release date has finally come !<br><br>MAY 25th !<br><br>Will it be Powell's masterpiece ? I hope so ! But it's going difficult to sound better than HTTYD !Yep, I noticed. And in mp3<br>I guess YT is still the better way
There's a way to do it but I won't tell you for fear that I get HULK SMASHED by Hybrid. Besides, the file is in 112 kbps, it's barely worth the trouble (and I'm not even much of an audiophile).totally agreed...<br>maybe some way to hack intoI hope the Imperial March is in the score.Thank You NotaPix. That was really helpful. :)<br>I've never found this one either. It's the biggest gap in my HGW collection probably. Wonder why it never got a proper score release, sure it's a bit mickey-mousey and insubstantial but they could have at least put 30 minutes or so on the regular album, not just one track...
hello Piyush VC<br>sorry, I hope I have correctly understood your question, I do not know English (google translator).<br>I do not remember well how long my covers have been published here after my submission.<br>but if you would like to publish your own cover of the composer Hans Zimmer here, it is more correct that you address the questions of this type to 'antas' admin.<br>as I said, I hope my answer is relevant to your question.<br>bye :)Anywhere I can find a complete recording of this soundtrack? I've looked everywhere.Hey there.. Your music score is really good, I liked them all. I wanna know within how many days after your submission, were your tracks posted over here?Can anyone point me to where I can get a copy of this? I'd love to have this in my collection.It's been nearly 27 years since this came out in 1991.
Nop, you're not the only one.<br><br>I can say everything i listen John Powell is something with quality and personality.<br><br>How to Train Your Dragon is one of his best. You are missing out. <br><br>But I may be the only person who thinks Face/Off is one of his best scores. I love that score more than nearly any John Powell scores.I'm agree thatThey are independent events, but I think they are working in conjunction with each other. I based this on the description on the Vienna website. Their program is called The World of Hans Zimmer and some of the arrangements will be written by Zimmer himself. That leads me to believe this year's gala is a bit different and is just a stop for Zimmer's tour.Probably not. The two are indepedent events.

@Hybrid, there is a TV movie called Max-Q produced by Jerry Bruckheimer with music from Nick Glennie-Smith. The Dirty Pictures Promo has 4 tracks. They are very good, in the stylish of Armageddon. Nick is fantastic.

I always thought that this score was just influenced by Hans. But now I see that he actually worked on it, which kinda surprised me because for years I was under the impression that this was a Rabin/Gregson baby. And Steve also did some work on it. It's crazy, this score combines the talents of my favorite composers. If I'm not mistaken it's also the only time Zimmer shares a credit with Rabin...


rockhound2017-08-02 22:16:24
rabin and zimmer worked also together on Days of Thunder. Rabin played the guitar on The Last Note Of Freedom and if i remember correctly, rabin also said in an interview that he played some guitar parts on the score. but im not sure about that.


bro2017-08-02 22:37:44
Trevor also played the "Van Halen-ish" guitar parts in Twister for cues like "Going Green" and "Walk in the Woods".


Bayhem2017-08-03 14:48:10

..................................

I didn't know that. Very interesting. Rabin always says that Steven Seagal helped him get into film scoring, but I have a feeling that Zimmer (and Mancina) were also helping a lot. After all, Rabin worked on Fair Game and on Twister (as pointed out by "bro") and Days of Thunder. All movies that were made before Glimmer Man, which was the first full-blown Rabin score in Hollywood. Come to think of it, I certainly wouldn't mind seeing, or rather listening, to another Zimmer/Rabin collaboration.


rockhound2017-08-03 18:33:24
trevor came on board to Days of Thunder because of trevor horn, who produced that song. both knew each other from rabins time with YES. and if i remember correctly, mark mancina came on board to Days of Thunder because rabin. mark played keyboard on rabins L.A. live tour in 1989 and they both have also written the YES song Miracle of Life from the Union album in 1991.

and because rabin and mancina both knew each other, rabin got some work to do on mancinas scores. the first time i saw rabins name was in the Thank You credits in the SPEED score album. and when trevor scored Glimmer Man, someone of jerry bruckheimers staff recognized the music and because of that, trevor got in contact with bruckheimer. but because trevor was still new in the business, and bruckheimer wasnt sure about trevor yet, they hired mancina for Con Air. and mancina wanted trevors help, so both got the job.

the funny thing is, you can call rabin the Steven Seagal of filmmusic. both got a major credit with their first film. :D


Bayhem2017-08-03 21:37:33
Glad to see someone who knows his stufff when it comes to Rabin :) Just like me, you're obviously a fan of his. By the way, since you mentioned Trevor Horn, it got me thinking. The credit for the Coyote Ugly score went to Trevor Horn, but I clearly remember reading on the web forum a few years back that in reality it was Rabin who composed the majority of the film's themes. Yet, he's not credited anywhere. Nothing. Do you know anything about that? P.S. I still can't believe that there was never a release of the Coyoty Ugly score. Such a beautiful, sensual score.


rockhound2017-08-03 22:03:51
trevor rabin is my favourite composer, thats why i try to get as much informations as possible about him and his filmmusic work. but i also like his songs with YES, especially the TALK album and his solo stuff, especially the album Can't Look Away.

as for Coyote Ugly. trevor horn produced all the diane warren songs for this film. i guess, that is the reason he also composed the score. i think because of the many songs in the movie bruckheimer didn't want to hire one of his regulars at that time. there wasn't much score in the movie if i remember correctly.


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-03 22:28:11
And Trevor happens to be the brother-in-law of RCP's current boss, & HZ business partner, Steve Kofsky ! lol


meta2017-08-04 01:57:24

..............................................

You're right, it's not exactly a score-driven movie, but there is definitely a theme that can be heard when Violet's father talks to her in the kitchen (at the start of the movie). Then there's a slightly different version of that theme when they're at the hospital. It's a very beautiful and soft piece of music and it wouldn't be a stretch to say that it sounds very much like a Rabin music. As for Rabin's alleged involvement, it all came from the FilmScoreMonthly message boards. It was there when I first read that he was involved. They even said that on this very site (HZ.com) Rabin was listed as the composer of the theme, with Horn as the official composer (the page is no longer available though). Not only that, but I just saw that on the Soundtrack Collector page for Coyote Ugly Rabin is credited as the composer. Could be a mistake because they're both Trevor, but still, I'm inclined to believe that Rabin was involved in one way or another.

i saw that Klaus Badelt has 2 tracks from Coyote Ugly on his website. but i dont know, if it is from the actual score or just demos or rejected music.

A cameo from Armageddon in tne new Ice Age movie. It was funny. The theme sounds with the scene where all walk through the dust in the middle of the movie.

Actually it kinda shocked me, it was a bad idea, poorly executed, they even used The Launch to parody the famous "slo-mo walk", but that part was actually scored in Arma with the HGW cue right before !! lol

heres hoping that the man of steel theme sounds something like 6:27 of the launch, that bit would fit superman flying so damn well maybe with a bit of chorus!

Scorefan reply Replies: 5 || 2012-11-11 06:08:22
Armageddon is one of the best action scores in many years but also this version is just expanded because there are two missing cues: The complete part of the mir evacuation and death (like 5 minuts) and the film version of the evacuation when the ship leaves the asteroid and harry blow up the bomb
that's the two part missing scores
I hope some day, maybe La-La-Land or Intrada release the complete score recording sessions with those music parts


Mr Tweedy2012-11-11 11:29:56
Scorefan, you're half right half wrong...
Yes, there are a few cues missing, for sure. But these aren't the ones you mention. Mir Evacuation & Death is a mash up of the original Death of Mir cues, with some edited parts of Secondary Protocol and Meteor Shower thrown into the mix. It's not unreleased music, it's previously released music edited in a different way.
The Evacuation of the Asteroid is mostly Rabin's cue Evacuation, with Harry Gregson-Williams'insert "Evacuation 2" replacing the middle portion. Again, nothing new here.

But, you might have noticed that the Asteroid 4-notes theme from "Asteroid Chase" appears a few times in the film, with various arrangements (replacing a portion of "Top Secret" or "AJ's Return" for exemple) and the cue "Fallen Comrades" has a longer opening in the movie.
For sure these are only minor cues, and I'd be quite happy to get them, but the 2CD "expanded score", as we know it, is really awesome as it is !


Scorefan2012-11-12 06:47:45
@Mr Tweedy of course, yes i have the version, but also, i want to hear those film mixing versions. I hope, in the future, La La Land Records develop Armageddon, The Peacemaker, Crimson Tide, The Rock and yes, The Lion King


Trent Easton Navarro2012-11-12 22:07:52
If The Lion King will be released, it will be by Intrada. They have a deal with Disney (also hoping we'll see a release for Jerry Goldsmith's Mulan)

Second Armageddon and The Peacemaker. Those two deserve an official complete release.

As for Crimson Tide and The Rock, both original releases are fine for me (not that wouldn't buy an expanded version though :P)


Scorefan2012-11-14 20:05:36
@Trent Easton Navarro
well, i hope those will have an official release, just like La La Land made with Broken Arrow and Black Rain, also with more of Remote Control Scores, just like Days Of Thunder and Backdraft


Trent Easton Navarro2012-11-17 18:56:27
Yeah, I loved their releases for Broken Arrow and Black Rain, as well as Speed and Speed 2: Cruise Control.

Official releases for Days of Thunder and Backdraft would also be great. As well as Bird on a Wire

Trev´s Fan reply Replies: 0 || 2011-10-07 09:44:20
In 1998, you scored "Armageddon" which was a rather great hit, at the time. Characterised by many as an Epic Symphonic Score, blend with a distinct Rock spirit and tone, by having the guitar on a basic and principal role. How did you become involved in that project and of course, is there something particular you remember off these sessions?

Although I had recently done "Con Air" for Jerry Bruckheimer, he was concerned that I didn't have enough experience to take on a film the size of "Armageddon". So I had to basically write the main themes before I was hired. I think Jerry had showed a lot of courage hiring someone with very little experience. Luckily, I had the themes by the time I started which made the project a little easier...but it was a gruelling project

Tell us about the score, your inspiration on writing the beautiful love theme and the dense action pieces. Which is your favourite sequence, both in the movie and score?

I was very happy with the main theme which I used for anthemic moments, romantic moments, and others. It is very rewarding when a theme is so easily adapted to different emotions.


In that film you worked with Harry Gregson Williams and also other composers from the Media Ventures studios. Later on, you also worked with Harry on “Enemy of the State”. Due to these facts, completed by a tight relationship with the studio, a lot of people thought that you were also part of the Media Ventures Studios. Please Trevor, tell us the real story behind this, the making process of “Armageddon” and “Enemy of the State”. You know, a lot of people still think you´re part of that team!

My studio is quite far from Jerry Bruckheimer´s offices, so after "Con Air" he requested that I find a studio nearer him to compose "Armageddon". Media Ventures was near Jerry , and had a great room available, so I hired the room for "Armageddon". There was a lot of music on the movie and I had great help from Harry Gregson-Williams, Paul Linford and Don Harper. I was in the middle of doing "Jack Frost" when Jerry Bruckheimer called me for "Enemy of the State". I was concerned about the two films overlapping so I asked Harry, and Tim Heinz to help. I wrote the themes before starting "Enemy of the State" which like "Armageddon", made it a little easier. I love what Harry did on "Enemy" and we shared credit. Hans Zimmer and I have been friends for a long time, however I have nothing to do with Media Ventures, I think they're a great company.

Jack reply Replies: 0 || 2011-09-14 12:46:47
Correct me if I'm wrong, but this one is the original complete score (maybe recording sessions... ;-)), which was used to make the version that has been around on the net. The only difference consists in different track names. For example: track 2 "Boffer reports in" corresponds to tracks 2 "Defcon 3", and so on.

And maybe that's why all the Armageddon bootlegs listed on the website have been removed: this one is the only real deal!

Trevor Rabin is a standalone composer. Not five additional composer needed to composed a good score. He is not one and the remote control and Armageddon only his third film works was. Bruckheimer would have it that he works with remote control. It's easy to understand!

@ /&/

No composer works alone these days, not only for the crazy dead lines, but also because of some very picky directors (like Michael Bay) who ask for rewrites all the time.
Did you see the ''additional music''-army for LOTR 1,2 and 3? Of course, they have a different function than RCP-people, but it's just a fact that no composer works alone.
Even 'legend' John Williams works with other people, but they aren't credited so they are ghost writers!

@ /&/ (what a silly assambly of crazy signs..lol)

Trevor Rabin is credited as main composer, yes. but he failed to finish the score in time - that's why HGW came to the rescue! He saved the score...look at the playlist and use your super powers (John Dowe calls it "reading")! btw I find it unfair that HGW is credited as additional composer!
