I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*
OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :pHi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

Cheers mateI agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?
Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)Yeah, that theme starting at 1:35 is totally Black Rain! I love it though.So is nobody going to point out that Hans just casually slipped a theme from Black Rain into the middle of "Millennium Theme"...like, note for note? :pI hope there will be an album for Angel Has Fallen by 	David Buckley.PM me on YouTube for further questions.

Does anyone know where the "Floating Minds" track from the old promo is from? It doesn't seem to actually belong to The Ring. It's not a very good track, just a bunch of random piano and string chords really, but it's driving me nuts.

Bayhem reply Replies: 1 || 2017-07-19 12:32:26
Here's a tough one for you, guys: which Zimmer horror score do you prefer: this one or Hannibal? Speaking for myself, I honestly can't decide...I absolutely love The Ring, but Hannibal is equally as creepy, stylish and atmospheric. Would love to hear what you think.


badbu2017-08-14 20:36:49
This is the best horror score ever! :-)

I don't think it's available. Sadly. I looked for it a while back and nothing came up. I doubt things have changed....

it's a funny thing that I truly believe that this score is groundbreaking within Zimmer's work. soo strange but there are very scpecific musical ideas, sounds in this score that he still uses / discovering. after the 90s action sound, this was the born of a completely new library. obviusly it's not that simple I know that. it's not: let's draw a line in the sand, but something happened here.


Edmund Meinerts2015-10-30 13:32:26
I know I'm replying to this way too late, but I very much disagree. The Ring is very much an extension of Hannibal.

Is the End Credits cue credited by Zimmer only? or Tillman, Lohner and Zimmer?

The Well Pt. 1 is not unused. It is, in fact, the film vesion of the cue that plays just as Rachel is hit by the TV and falls down the well.

Here's the track listing for you to know which of these are film versions:

2. Disturbing (was replaced with sound effects from the videotape in the film)

4. Shelter Mountain Inn (I) (was replaced with the last section of track 11 in the film)
5. Seven Days (film version)

7. Rachel Makes a Copy (film version)
8. Rachel's Vision (film version)
9. "4 Days" (was replaced with "Rachel is Alone" in the film)
10. A Lighthouse/The Fly (film version)
11. Find the Lighthouse/Moesko Island/Anna Morgan (film version)
12. Aidan's Theme (film version)
13. Aidan Can't Sleep (film version can be found in the track Investigation from the promo album)
14. The Diary (film version)
15. Before You Die You See the Ring (film version uses pieces of the track "The Well" from the official album mixed in this version of the cue)
16. Daughter! (film version)
17. Horse Overboard (I) (film version has no drums. A small part of it can be heard in "This is Going to Hurt" from the official album)
18. Horse Overboard (II) (film version)
19. Morgan's Horse Farm (film version)
20. Revealing the Videotape (it's either the film version or unused)
21. Aidan's Drawing (film version)
22. A Dark Place (film version)
23. Lighthouse Music (film version)
24. The Suicide (film version)
25. Rachel is Remembering (film version)
26. Samara's Home/Behind the Wallpaper (film version)
27. Shelter Mountain Inn (II) (film version)
28. Under the Rug (film version)
29. The Well (I) (film version)
30. The Well (II) (film version)
31. The Well (III)/Home Sweet Home (film version)
32. Rachel and Aidan (film version has no piano layered over the cue)
33. She Never Sleeps (I) (I think it is the film version but I'm not sure)
34. She Never Sleeps (II) (film version)
35. The Videotape Goes to Hell (film version)
36. End Credits (film version)
37. Unused Cue #1 (title speaks for itself)
38. Unused Cue #2 (title speaks for itself)
39. Unused Cue #3 (title speaks for itself)

You're welcome to correct me if any of these notes are wrong.

Whats the difference between the 39 track version and this one? There is also a 2CD version.


Dakota2011-07-25 04:57:19
The Only difference is that the 4 remaining tracks are alternates. Take away those 4, and you have those remaining 39 racks


Poe2011-07-25 06:32:00
Not so with mine, track 39 on my edition is real long. And those 4 are from the original poor quality promo??

And the unused tracks in the beginning are 1, 2 and 5 !

bloo reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-02 00:00:00
Yes, its my version. I had the sessions, with no titles, and after viewed the movie, i did this tracklisting, putting 3 tracks unused at the end, adding the end credits, deleting the last track of this recording which already was on the regular release and fir the final, adding the alternate tracks from the first bootleg.
It's not indicate here, but i also add "film version" on few tracks, because a large part are not.

I have a 39 track version and it seems a bit different with the track orders.

bloo reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-02 00:00:00
Sure, it's different because you have the sessions (with 39 tracks). Maybe not but normally. And the tracks unused are in the beginning, but i don't remember which... maybe the 1, 5 and 7, but i'm not sure. And normally, again, the last track of your cd is "the well" on the regular release (cut on the beginning).

Track 37-39 are really unused music, never heard in the film.
Track 40-43 are from the very first promo album which was released years ago.
