All those people who complain that Hans isn't sticking to more traditional scores forget that at heart, hes a synth man who loves his synthesizers and keyboards. Hans is just as much as a musical artist as Bowie or Paul Mccartney, in the sense that he goes through musical trends and his style adapts or changes. That's just the way it is, enjoy it for what it is. <br><br>Crucify me for comparing a human to David Bowie!Wow! Stephen Barton worked on a lot of the important cues here, huh?I'm with Edmund in that I'd love for Hans to win more Oscars, but not this score. I feel like even Blade Runner 2049 is more deserving of an award than this. Sure, it works great in the film, but that shouldn't be reason enough for an Oscar. I feel like Desplat's nominated score is more deserving than this one. <br><br>"But this one has a unique sound and recording!"<br><br>Okay... a lot of scores have that. A lot of Zimmer's work has that. Doesn't make them all masterpieces.<br><br>"But we have to spite those evil reviewers who hate this score!"<br><br>Why do you let their opinion get in the way of your enjoyment? If you love it enough, the critics' opinions should only make you enjoy it more because you see something in it they don't. <br><br>I agree with George in that Hans needs to go back to a melodic sound. I don't think whether this score wins or not will change Hans' mind on that, but I do want his next Oscar winner to mean something other than, "Oh cool! I won this award because I made weird sounds!" (Which by the way, involves things like programming and a lot of other technical adjustments that have nothing to do with Hans' composing ability)."The thing that I'm proudest about Dunkirk is you can't separate it from the film."<br>- Hans Zimmer, GQI understand, but it does not make sense.<br>You're arguing that the score for a movie released in January this year was produced before of the score of a movie that went to theaters in July. If Balfe started working on "12 strong" a year before the movie release, the same can be said of Dunkirk. It is easy to infer that the Dunkirk's score has been working since the middle of 2016! Or even before, because of the tours that Zimmer has done.<br>The music/sound design, even being simple, was not made and recorded between January and May of last year.
Olive  that is when it was announced !!! Not when he did itBalfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .
I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.
Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before DunkirkHere's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.

Hans Zimmer or John Powell, or anyone for that matter, where can i find the entire original parts/ score for Sacred Pool of Tears? I would be gladly willing to pay for this entire original sheet music as it is truly a masterpiece. It would be used for personal use and enjoyment, so anybody, can you please help me?
Thank You So Very Much!!!

what cues make up sacred pool of tears?

Victor reply Replies: 2 || 2008-12-23 00:00:00
"Oogway Ascends" is one of the most beautiful pieces of Mr. Zimmer... Nice Violin solo


Alexis2012-12-21 20:09:48
It's not a violin, it's an erhu, a chinese violin.





Lucien2013-10-27 08:30:45
Yeah. It is an Erhu.

Question: how correct are the automatic CD credits?

In order:

1. Hans Zimmer
2. John Powell
3. John Powell
4. Hans Zimmer
5. Hans Zimmer
6. Hans Zimmer
7. Hans Zimmer
8. Hans Zimmer
9. Hans Zimmer
10. John Powell
11. John Powell
12. Hans Zimmer
13. Hans Zimmer
14. John Powell
15. Hans Zimmer
16. John Powell

This strikes me as way off. The score sounds much more Powellish than Zimmerish as a whole, and I have a very difficult time believing Oogway Ascends is Powell... :P


Zimson2013-08-01 10:34:25
Wrong! :D
Panda Po is by Powell and Oogway Ascends by Zimmer. Sebastian Wulff was one the arrangers from the score and he uploaded some sheets on which the composers are credited. But you got Sacred Pool of Tears right.
sebastianwolff.info/news/category/music/sheet-music/page/8/
I mostly agree on the rest with you


Zimson2013-08-01 10:37:19
And Dragonwarrior rises is by both composers I think. The same theme is used in Oogway ascends


Anonymous2013-08-01 15:27:48
Never said I thought these were the correct answers, so I didn't get anything wrong--I just said this was what the CD gave. ;)


Mike2013-08-01 15:37:17
If anything, I would assume this is mostly Powell and some Zimmer. Zimmer said himself in one interview that he lets Powell take the lead with Kung Fu Panda.

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2013-07-17 00:04:04
The only tracks I can really discern as Zimmer are "Tai Lung Escapes", "Peach Tree of Wisdom", and "Oogway Ascends". The rest sounds like Powell, with the exception of "Hero", "Panda Po", and "Sacred Pool of Tears", which sounds like both of them.

I love the music from Kung fu panda!!!!!! :)

Sad Fan reply Replies: 2 || 2012-01-12 02:30:12
I would appreciate it if in the future all of the Kung Fu Panda soundtracks actually included ALL the music from the movie.

I am greatly disappointed in the fact that I paid for something and realistically only got half of it.

Same with the Kung Fu Panda 2 Soundtrack.

Where is all the music?
It's a soundtrack, you're supposed to put all the music on it.

Is there any chance we could get the music that is missing from the soundtracks?


Mycroft2012-01-12 03:15:56
No. If you seek the music that's missing off of a soundtrack by RCP, you'd have better luck seeking out the Holy Grail.

I like what you say though: "It's a soundtrack, you're supposed to put all the music on it. " RCP needs to hear that!

Such beautiful compositions capturing the eastern flavors! I truly love the works of Hans Zimmer as well as the famous works of John Powell! I was hoping to get into contact with someone for usage of some of the songs in this album. The reason I'm asking is because I'm working on a game (free-time) and I was wondering if I could have some kind of usage of the songs. my contact information is KyoteX@live.com. Once again I really appreciate your works and I look forward to listening to more soundtracks from the second Kung Fu Panda!

Anthony have you not a end? It's hard understand you ... You're not to understand music (I have all cd by Zimmer and Powell and I know the two different style) don't write anymore please.

No name It seems like action parts were written by Powell and "non-action" by Zimmer. Great score by the way (and great theme - I think it`s composed by Zimmer, too). )
You're understand perfect!!!
