THE LITTLE POLAR BEAR 2 - Hans Zimmer’s talk translation of what he said in the video of scoring The score :
I’m working here on the polar bear and actually‚ I’m from Germany but I live at Los Angeles.
That means that I’m able to have a lot of fun. Anyway I like writing music. Everytime when I get the chance to write music - that’s my hobby; the thing to do I like mostly in life.
At the polar bear the topic about nature is very imporant. The idea of the Galapagos islands and I know this from my seven years old son‚ too. He is very interested in these Galapagos islands and Charles Darwin and all of these theories and I know that this can be very interesting for children.
Often I watch earlier versions of the film together with my children so I remark what they are interested in or what they don’t understand and I try to "bring out" the emotions and to make them clearer. Ideas come at the craziest times and mostly‚ late at night.
Always my job is to play and never really to grow up so I think I don’t remark that at the polar bear. I think it’s ordinary to "sniff around" and go on adventures.
And this childlike interest in playing and playing together with others is the thing we musicians and children have in common.

This CD is great! I love "--Am Nordpol"--, "--Das Fischakelett"--, "--Auf in den Süden"--, "--Lars findet den Riesenfisch"--, "--Befreit den Riesenfisch"--, "--Lars und Greta füttern den Riesenfisch"-- and "--Der Riesenfisch schwimmt in die Freiheit"--! Every song on this score is sooooooo sweet! Hans Zimmer and Nick Glennie-Smith did perfect work!
