what about the music when batman makes it back to the cave and lex opens the case of kryptonite. cant find it in theseYeah I can't agree that Inception or Interstellar are superior pieces of scoring. Certainly not in structure, thematic development, etc. <br><br>What defined those scores is the vision behind them more so than the execution. In so many ways, that is opposite of The World's End. Interstellar is a brilliant score that managed to provide each scene with a simplistic tone, but one that captured the atmosphere behind the scenes perfectly, such as the unique use of the organ. Same with Inception with the guitars. <br><br>With a World's End, the vision is nothing special. It is a rock and roll twist to classic music. But the execution brings enormous power and gravitas to the movie.<br><br>I would sum it up by saying that in Interstellar and Inception, the creation of the music drives the movie's ideas while in At World's End, the movie drives the creation of the music.Nazg&#251;l for Azog I will never forgive. It's not a Servant of Sauron theme, it's a Ringwraith theme, and Azog's not a Ringwraith, he's a goddam Orc, and that theme doesn't belong there, full stop. It was just put there because it sounds "epic" and would "pump up the action scene". Gondor Restored at the end is just as stupid. And the Dreaming of Bag End theme for Bilbo is indeed lovely, and would have been lovelier still if it actually appeared in the movie. Instead it just gets replaced by copy/pasted Hobbit music from LOTR instead because Peter Jackson desperately wants his audience to remember how good those movies were in lieu of the Hobbit ones being any good on their own. Needless to say it goes missing entirely from the second and third score...along with the Misty Mountains melody (the strongest theme of the first one). I still really like those scores overall but they got absolutely butchered in terms of their thematic usage in the films. Then again those movies were an absolute clusterfuck so I shouldn't be surprised.<br><br>WRT Harry Potter, the 3 note theme does work okay for Voldemort, except that there's already a longer, separate Voldemort theme in Philosopher's, one that I like even more, and which only gets used once in Chamber (when Riddle rearranges the letters). I can understand liking Chamber better than Philosopher when you compare the albums, but in terms of the complete scores there's no contest at all, Philosopher wins by a country mile because of Chamber's rehash issues (and there are some good cues missing from the album, such as the Troll and Forbidden Forest scenes).@Edmund<br>The thing with the Nolan scores (at least Interstellar/Inception) is that they are repetitive, in as much as being built heavily around the suites that I’m guessing they use to edit and temp the film. <br>And while the themes are simple I do think they are structured in a unique enough way which builds emotional resonance through the gradual increase in chords/volume/speed/etc. Even Dunkirk is a relatively simple score theme wise, but is so technically complex.<br><br>And personally I’ve never been in love with Inception. I admire it on a technical level, but outside of “Time” I find it to be a fairly cold score. Obviously what it was meant to do so not a complaint, more of a personal preference thing.You know, I actually like Chamber of Secrets much more than Philosopher's Stone. It has the best moments from that score with improved themes. (I actually like the 3 note motif for Voldemort better than it being used for the stone, it already sounded like the Sith theme from Star Wars so might as well go all the way with it.) It felt more tight, better paced, and had an overall more energetic feel to it.<br><br>The Hobbit, I'm not entirely sure where you're getting heartbreaking from. If you mean the state of its release I absolutely agree, if you're talking about its reprisals the only one I had any issue with was the Return of the King/Gondor Restored theme which had nothing to do with Thorin and Bilbo's relationship. <br><br>The Nazghul theme being used for Azog I thought was fine as he was a servant of Sauron in the movies, History of the Ring and Gollum's themes were used effectively, and the new thematic material for the first film, I thought was wonderful. The themes A Baggins of Bag-End and The Lonely Mountain song being used as a Fellowship type of theme are the greatest highlights for me.
See, I don't find Inception or Interstellar (or Thin Red Line) all that "complex". Especially not compared to At World's End (how many themes are in that score, like 15? 20? Pretty much all of which show up in rapid succession during the Maelstrom battle?). The Nolan scores are more about building up around very simple conceptual ideas.<br><br>Unless you're talking about emotional complexity, which is a very different thing and not really possible to objectively judge...You know, I don't think I've ever really gotten the full story surrounding that score. I've heard conflicting reports. My personal belief is that Ross did little to no substantial composition and that all the new stuff (themes, suites, new cues and also significantly fresh arrangements of old material) is pure Williams, but that film is full of reused music from the first film (it's actually quite frustrating, not as bad as On Stranger Tides or as heartbreaking as The Hobbit, but a bit of a rehashy mess and it makes the key error of using the Philosopher's Stone motif as a Voldemort theme). That's where I think Ross comes in and was responsible for taking those cues verbatim from the first film and tweaking/rearranging them just enough to match the timings of the scenes without actually adding any of his "own" notes. His role is likely somewhere between additional music, arrangement and music editing (but as Hybrid likes to point out, oftentimes those sorts of roles are really blurred and overlapping anyways).<br><br>A guy at jwfan did an analysis that helps understand the nature of that score, but be warned, it goes *really* deep:<br><br>www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/27619-finished-chamber -of-secrets-thematic-and-originality-analysis/I'm trying to be objective* (sorry haha)@Anonymous Zimmer's best? Well... I'm trying to be subjective:<br>IMO The Thin Red Line remains the pinnacle of Hans' career from an artistic point of view. It's a turning point, though we've been used to this kind of writing since (so many scores have copied TTRL).<br><br>Inception and (especially) Interstellar are superior pieces of scoring as well. Their level of complexity is unmatched in Zimmer's discography.<br>Gladiator is another impressive score, as it combines some of the best action music, best drama and deepest emotions Hans has ever composed for a movie.<br><br>Seems like I'm quite objective here, as none of my favorites scores are on this list ! ;)Interesting you mention William Ross' role in Chamber of Secrets because I've never fully understood what his exact involvement was. Was he just an additional music composer? Or did he actually compose most of the score with John Williams only writing the suites? Just curious if you know.
I mean, the thematic situation *is* a bit messy. You've got new themes by Powell, one new Williams theme adapted by Powell, and then existing Star Wars themes adapted by Powell. I agree the credits are a bit long-winded but I can't think of a more concise way to convey all that information.<br><br>What does bother me (and maybe this is my inner fanboy talking) is that it seems to downplay Powell's role a bit, listing him second and with the use of the word "adapted" which makes him feel a bit second fiddle. Remember how William Ross "adapted" Williams' music for Chamber of Secrets, by which was meant largely copying and pasting bits from Sorcerer's Stone? I have no doubt that Powell has done a far, far more substantial job here (and they do say "composed and adapted", to be fair). Then again, it's a Star Wars score, and of course they're going to put Williams' name front and center as much as possible no matter what.<br><br>This is all such nitpicking of the highest order :pHans for Star Wars ?<br><br><br>Never.<br><br><br>Ron probably asked him first and Hans probably was like "JOHN POWELL !!"What would have happened if Ron Howard would have been the first choice to direct Solo? He would have chosen James Horner (if he wasn't dead) or try to convince Hans Zimmer to do the music. The only collaboration between Howard and maestro Williams was in the movie Far And Away.Poster in SpainA Star Wars score that sounds like a Powell score? I'm in.<br><br>From what I've heard of many people, the score is really great and apart from the Williams theme, I heard Powell also had a lot of great themes.<br><br>I cannot wait for it!
Your source?Just saw the film, really fun and faced paced movie. The score is great, it has a solid main theme by John Williams (not as great as Rey theme though) but still memorable and john powell adapts this main theme in various variations throughout the film. Star Wars fan might be dissapointed by the score because this overall sounds like a typical Powell score which doesn’t really sound like a typical Star Wars movie. Still fans of Powell will love this new score.La La-Land is going to release the scorePowell adapted ideas from Williams (i think in one interview, he saids the new themes come from tunes by Williams)Music providen by additional composers, mean like, diferent version or re-arranged parts from a cue

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?

hello Piyush VC
sorry, I hope I have correctly understood your question, I do not know English (google translator).
I do not remember well how long my covers have been published here after my submission.
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.
as I said, I hope my answer is relevant to your question.
bye :)

Hello Hans, my name is Lilya, I'm from Russia, and I'm a fan of your creativity. If you have free time, please listen to my music, but only there is a demo version, because I'm afraid that my music can be stolen. If you are interested, I can completely throw the tracks on your mail or wherever you say. I apologize for this translation, because it translated to Google translator. Thank you very much for your attention and your precious time! Personally for me - you are the coolest composer!

Hello Hans Zimmer fans! I very glad to share you with some of my works:
1. Mole: Escape - tribute to Dunkirk. I tried to recreate the stuff, tension atmosphere and some motifs from the first half of the film. Track has nervous strings play in shepard tone with dynamic tempo, that rises and rises with the ticking and heartbeat.

LINK: https://soundcloud.com/soundborne_n1/mole-escape-tribute-to- dunkirk
LINK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYiOn-06Unk

2. LIMBO - "TIME" Variation. LIMBO IS VERY CLOSE RECREATION OF INCEPTION'S MAIN THEME - TIME. I TRIED TO GET VERY IDENTICAL SOUND LIKE IN
ORIGINAL SCORE - RESONATING, PULSING, BREATHING and VIBING. IN CREATION I USED DARK ZEBRA presets (little-bit modified Forlorn and Ringmod Pulser patch, because Mr. Zimmer is using custom version of synth - Zebra HZ) for U-HE ZEBRA 2 SYNTH. "BREATHING" ORCHESTRA SOUND is CineOrch Low patch library. For piano parts I used great, for my opinion, Soundiron's Emotional Piano (Soft Piano patch). Drums part is modified Titan Drums from Drums of War library. Guitar part created with mixed combination of different vst guitars and own custom guitar-like preset for U-he Zebra 2. In mastering I used one EQ and Compressor. Happy listening!!!

For those who want to make their own Hans Zimmer-style covers, but don't have money to spend out on expensive sound libraries, I'd highly recommend looking into Soundsonline's ComposerCloud subscription service. It has practically everything you could want, even including heavy percussion like that used in Zimmer's 90s scores and in Lorne Balfe's Terminator Genisys. And it's not expensive: you can go for a monthly plan that gets you 9000+ instrument patches for as little as $29.99. I'm on the ComposerCloudX scheme and that is even better because it has close mic recordings for some of the included sets.

Dear Hans Zimmer friends,

Thank you for receiving this message.
I will give the World for you to kindly submit my message to Hans himself.
Thank you

I attended your Hans Zimmer Live concert tonight in London.
I saw you living my vision (life achievement and my purpose) and will be thrilled to feature on your music/ create music with you.

I am an exceptionally ambitious, driven & committed 25 years of age musician, having last year taken flights to Las Vegas and previously around the World (to meet and perform for audiences and people who show a keen interest in my career)

However, I know, in my heart, that I am here to give much more to a greater, wider range of groups. People who deserve to know and experience the same sense which you provide with your music. I also feel very connected to you by the way in which you communicate this message in your delivery and words on stage. I have never seen anything as superbly brilliant in my life. Nor imagined it. Well done and thank you.
In addition, I felt that your donation of proceeds from the show was a beautiful, a selfless personal token of generosity, which every one of the thousands of people at the concert (and I'm sure many more) deeply respected.
I too am sharing this message with the World, it is my dream to do so on a scale like you do. As you may see from my personal message videos: https://youtu.be/CSI60fv0pT0
(I also speak German, my strong favourite among six languages!)

I have a website where you can find out a little more about me, what people say and explore my social media.
However first, perhaps you may be most interested listen to which demos of my voice I have on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/gemmalouisedoyle
MySpace website is www.gemma-doyle.com and you should also see my other links within the email signature.

It could change more lives, to have me sing your unbelievable incredible & outstanding music.
One of my favourite masterpieces of yours is of course the theme from my all time favourite movie Gladiator.

Your music touches and moves all people, in ways which are incomparable.

Should you happen to find me, and have any interest to hear or meet me, kindly get in touch.
I will be eternally invigorated and grateful to speak with/hear from you.

Thank you,
One of your forever true allies (whether known by yourself or not)

Didn't know where else to post this but here goes....

Just finished with the Hans Zimmer Masterclass and have to say that it is truly worth it for anyone who

a.) Want to start a career in film scoring
and/or
b.) Loves Hans Zimmer and wants to really see a candid look into his writing process and thought style going into any project.

This really is one of the most informative types of classes which give you an "outside-the-box" approach. Props to Junkie Xl for his Studio time series as well!!!

And what I really want to know; if Zimmer ever plans to release a collection of his "diaries" lol :D

Dear Hans.

Thank you so much for your inspiring links on YouTube about your Master Class. Despite the amount of disparaging and scathing comments from some people, I think your comments about setting composers free to create new life shattering music at the drop of a hat with computers, I phones is definitely the way forward. You have proved this yourself with your career and inspiring music. Yes, you have to break the rules and splosh new ideas manuscript paper through the computer so that you can say new things.

The rules are only necessary for the young student to get into professional music and start writing. Once you are there, you must set them aside so that you can create something new. After all that is what Bach and Mozart did like Stravinsky after them because there are new things to be said musically. But all ideas, be it a film school, a symphony or even a simple song, classical or pop, come about through a story. You must have a story, something to tell, to inspire the composer to make music.

There is just one thing which I personally have never found out of and that is how does one get into the film/music world? I was at the London film school earlier. They taught me many things but not how to get into the profession. Frequently one has asked what films or TV programmes have you written music for before? Without having anything concrete to refer too one is automatically bypassed. In other words you have to have a proven track record before you can get into the profession.

If you have any ideas about this Hans, I would be extremely grateful to hear from you.

Best of luck with your next film project.
