Search for "filmtracks".Sorry, just found it.Tried that, couldn't find an author named Clemmensen who reviewed it. (I don't know where to look I haven't seen this guy's reviews before).Should be easy to find with google...Seriously guys, what site is he on? I want to see this review, but I don't know where it is.
I know woodwinds, with few exception, have been completely abandoned by RCP, but man would it be nice if Steve fit woodwinds into the small scale family scenes. He's great with them, but for whatever reason he doesn't seem to be able to use them unless it's an animation, The Sims or IDEA specifically, or fantasy (even then The Last Witch Hunter had no woodwinds). They add so much to the soundscape and make any score so much richer. <br><br>I'm listening to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy again currently, and god, they'd be nothing without all of those flutes and clarinets. Even when the main instrument is brass or string, the addition of woodwinds is so cleverly implemented by Shore, and they not only blend, but they actively enhance the sound. <br><br>Of course I'd also love Steve to continue using choir. He even seems to be getting better with it, with Transformers 5's use of it resembling the Halo franchise in a number of ways. It would be a wonderful surprise though if he went back to woodwinds eventually. I'm definitely not of the belief that they can't be used in a modern day setting either (Silence of the Lambs and the Spider-Man scores use them particularly well).Steve is a very accommodating composer. So it's really up to the director's vision. With Bay, you know you gonna hear some of the best stuff Steve has to offer and that's because they share the same "musical ear".<br><br>When he's scoring Peter Berg movies, Steve often relies on sound design and his scores for those movies are not really melodic. The few exceptions aside, Berg likes sound design scores. And he likes to experiment A LOT (example: the MRI machine sound that was incorporated in the Battleship score. Bold choice!).<br><br>Where does the director of Skyscraper stand in all of this?<br><br>Personally, I think this score will be "in the middle". Little sound design there, little melodic cue over here.... : ) I don't expect power anthems, simply because - as big as the movie is - it's not "Michael Bay big". I do hope for a little choir work though. Steve is great with choir.The Solo review does look quite good.<br><br>Clemmensen comes across pretty badly in many of his reviews. Even some of the positive ones. He has some very strong preconceptions about certain things that sometimes lead him to say some reasonably aggravating stuff.<br><br>Interestingly, he stays almost reasonable in his A World's End review. I wouldn't point to that one as his most typical negative review.Additional information<br>Posted date 2016<br><br>but, It was sold for two years.<br><br>Hello Hans.<br><br>May i ask you a question?<br><br>The piano sheet is now on sale, so that your music is now in the market for commercial purposes. It is sold at $ 10, although I do not know whether or not the seller arranged the piano music directly. Please check with us for the availability of other music.<br><br>Please refer to this site: htta://www.yes24.com/24/goods/28085649<br><br>(South Korea book store.)<br><br>Book Introduction :<br>It is the piano music which made the best 22 songs. New Age, movies, games, animations, etc., can be seen in various genres, and each sheet of music is directly attached to the author's QR code video.<br><br>If there is no problem, please respond.<br><br>Have a good day.
He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :P
What site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.

Hans Zimmer (who replaced Alf Clausen) is currently scoring the Simpsons Halloween Special


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-30 09:51:34
Mmmmmh nope it's Bleeding Fingers, Hans is producer at best...


replaced2017-10-01 15:18:59
It's disappointing to see Alf Clausen replaced by a stock music library. Were they really that cheap?


replaced2017-10-01 15:22:32
No offence meant to any of the unnamed composers but when you've dedicated your career to a show and you see you've been replaced by samples and a cue arranged by "Bleeding Fingers" it must be hard to take.


Mike2017-10-02 05:18:51
I have to agree . I hope this is not the case . I can't believe Hans would have anything to do with this ? To save money they fired an amazing composer and then got a company ?


replaced2017-10-02 16:41:36
More info here:
http ://filmmusicreporter.com/2017/10/01/bleeding- fingers-music-taking-over-scoring-duties-on-the-simpsons/

"The music production house Bleeding Fingers Music has taken over scoring duties on the Fox animated series The Simpsons. Hans Zimmer and Russell Emanuel serve as score producers and Steven Kofsky is credited as the score executive producer."

This score hardly sounds like Zimmer at all

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-26 00:00:00
Well, 'Giddyup Suite', isn't that the music in track 10 on the soundtrack !(?), so that's not really unreleased .... or is it different (?) ;) (...except for the minor fade with the previous track on the soundtrack, that is)
But perhaps you didn't mean that cue specifically being unreleased... (?)

Ravi reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-26 00:00:00
I think this is one of HZ's more underrated scores, and has some very good unreleased tracks which shows in the complete version. "Giddyup Suite" especially features some very good orchestral writing.

My only gripe is that people here think that Zimmer actually reads this. This isn't even his website, this is a fansite, fools. Get that into your head.

Thank You again. put the music in my heart again.

hans you are the man. this soundtrack is awesome.

1. The Simpsons theme - you have done much to this theme. you gave it alot more life. i loved your vesion of elfman's original theme

2. Trapped like Carrots - awesome. it has a very wind ensemble sound to it. I love this track one of my favorite tracks by you for all time. it is very jazzy. i lke how you play with the melody switching it between the trumpets, clarinets, flutes and then that huge low brass feature, wow!!!

3. Doomsday is Familytime - wow! this is one of the most gorgeous melodies i have ever heard. it is so beautiful. Everyone was afriad that you would have trumpets blasting and this song alone proves your genius.

4. Release the Hounds - Nice touch with the Latin rock feel. shows that you can really write all types of music. veru adventurous!

5. Clap for Alaska - then you come out with the Cathedral Chorale about The Simpsons going to Alaska. and you brought that beautiful melody from track 3 and took it a step further. i loved this track.

6. Whats an epiphany - excellent writing. you feel like your in the dream having the epiphany Homer is having even without watching the movie. This was very well written.

7. Thank you boob lady - then you come out with the military march where homer goes back to save his family. You managed to take the Simpsons theme and turn it into the war melody! Very nice work. you are a genius.

8. You doomed us all again - that beautiful melody comes back and you add even more to it, making all the more gorgeous. Then the march comes in and i see the power in what you are trying to portray here, which is the cities love for their town and Homer's for his family.

9. Lead not read - very adventurous piece. it reminds me alot of the power presented by Silvestri in back to the future, but even better. i loved this track/

10. why does everything i whip leave me - victory chorale. this track is very well put together. its alot like an olympic fanfare. i love it Hans

11. Bart's doodle - very cool piece. you can just imagine them living in a fairy tale land. and it reminds me alot of the music scores to the classic musicals. very creative writing.

12. world's fattest fertilizer salesman - very cool piece. very adventurou and tension building. it makes you want more and more as it goes along.

13. His big Fatt Butt cold sheild us all - Now you took the Simpsons theme and made it into a love theme. very cool Hans. you are definitely a mad genius. All of build in this one. it left me wanting more.

14. Spider-Pig - very dark and creative. Hans Your are a genius.

basically im telling you every track on this cd is awesome. i loved every moment of this soundtrack. i cant wait for more of your scores to come out. hans your the best composer ever!!!

Danny Elfman or Alan Silvestri would have been my first choice; their often lighthearted yet triumphant styles would suit this movie more than...say...a dozen trumpets blasting with marcato strings chopping their way through the background. But maybe Zimmer will "pull a Homer" with this one. Just don't go stealing from Holst again.

Here's an interview with James L. Brooks himself... maybe this will be an answer to the fans' curiosity (or, anger :p)...

http://www.canmag.com/nw/8456-simpsons-movie-james-l-brooks
"Alf has a full time job on the series. Hans and I have worked on a lot of movies together. Alf has a full time job and Hans is somebody I think came through for us brilliantly. I know he spoke to Danny [Elfman] and paid all respects there."


Anyway it seems they enjoyed a lot...
http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=22484

"Matt Groening: Everything in the movie is bigger. (...) The music, for the first time, you can actually be bombarded by. It's big and loud and very ambitious. Hans Zimmer did a fantastic job with the score. He's like the fifth Simpson. (laughter)

CS: How closely did you work with Hans Zimmer on that score?

Brooks: Intimately, and some of the key things that happened to our movie happened late at the sound mix. There's very little later than the sound mix. When Hans had done these little goofs privately and he played them for us at the very end of the road, we just started putting it in the body of the movie.

Jean: He's got a terrific sense of humor.

Brooks: Well, he's German. (laughter)"

...goofs?
