We must go deeper..- Hybrid soldier : "as soon as there is news, you'll know it here !"<br><br>... one week later ...<br><br>- random people : "hey, any news on the album?"<br><br>- Hybrid soldier : "as soon as there is news, you'll know it here !"<br><br>... two weeks later...<br><br>- another random fan : "Any release date on this? any news? im so excited ! Ho, and can you come soon with your orchestra in my little town, in the middle of nowhere in central Europe, soon please, just a few months after tou already did a 2 months tour in Europe with 25 concerts?Well that fuckin sucks lolThe credit above is just Balfe...? <br><br>At any rate, I suppose it's possible...Hybrid has said many times Hans will rework cues the other guys have done. It's not unthinkable, even if we don't usually hear about it.No, Varése trimmed down the reuse fees again by leaving the choir part out like they did on Giacchino's Star Trek.
Do we have also a curious case of role reversal where it was Hans' arranging Lorne's theme! =p<br><br>(look at the credits for portrait of mom/village trek - neither have kfp1/2 themes)If you want to see like just highlight text then right click then you should see an option to visit link.Any news on audio/video release? Seems like right after the tour Hans just disappeared and went straight back to his Batcave to do the next project. Though I'm pretty sure that's exactly what happened. And what about those cards, received with merchandise? Will there be any new material available for download anytime soon? Hybrid?Is there any way to possibly release the chronological order to the Twister film score?  Sadly, as it is in the CD is not the order that the tracks appear in the movie - and any help I can get with this would be monumentally appreciated!Hybrid, does Lorne being producer / Oscar Senen being orchestrator here have anything to do with the more "dynamic" (and, quite frankly, Lorne-like) sound of Hans' cues? Like, do they suggest to Zimmer that he should write his cues in a certain style?
i really thought, the second half of Jaded is by lorne, but ofc its really nice to know, that its also by hans. its one of my favourite parts in the whole score. greath mix of synths and solo instruments with a nice asian flair. and the motif/theme is also fantastic. straight old school rcp action style. it sounds like hans enjoyed working on this score with all this cool ideas and orchestrations by him...So wow...I guess Zimmer really did more here than on KFP 2, no? If he did Hungry for Lunch, the second half of Jaded, Passing the Torch, Oogway's Legacy (credits), and probably one or two more cues.... Whereas he only had like 2 completely solo cues in KFP 2, right?<br><br>It's funny, whenever I learn that Zimmer did a sizable amount of a score after thinking otherwise, I feel like I should apologize to him. xDAgain I say: props, Hans! I didn't know he did orchestrations like this anymore. I did always think Jaded sounded Hansy, but I figured LB helped out with some of the trumpety flourishes. Guess not!Another cool cue that's just Hans is the second half of Jaded, which is the Panda Training... ;)Hybrid, was PM in charge of the Kai cues? That seems to be where he pops up.
I like his Nolan scores, but I have gotten tired of his "Nolan approach" (i.e., everything is a short motif that repeats with added layers and volume), cause it's embodied his modus operandi for the last decade almost. Sure, he used that approach before Nolan, but after Nolan, he not only went to town with it and scored most stuff that way, but even espoused it as being preferable to his older stuff like Gladiator. <br><br>So yeah, back to what I said...it's nice that he's broken out of his Nolanisms just a bit. :P It's really refreshing. I hope he continues to do so.im not the biggest fan of his scores for the nolan movies. Inception worked for me in the movie, but the sound of this score and the theme itself is not something i like to hear on cd. Interstellar is even worse and failed for me for the most part in the movie. the music is overpowering, too simplistic and just added nothing in many important scenes like the goodbye of father and daughter or the big docking scene. in my opinion the movie is not well scored.<br><br>Kung Fu Panda 3 in comparison is....the music enhanced the movie and every scene is perfectly scored. emotion and excitement when it needed but never too much. really great score, especially for a third installment of a franchise. does not happen often...All true. His solo cues in here, and even the "tuneful" sections of the Batman theme from Batman v Superman, are a refreshing return to "broader" writing that it feels like he's almost abandoned since working with Chris Nolan. I honestly wondered whether he'd ever write more "traditional" stuff again, and those two scores tell me he still has it in him. :)i love this score so much. my favourite rcp score in a very long time and its really nice to see, that also hans has solo tracks, which have great melodies and an exciting orchestration. the music is adventurous, funny, emotional, exciting and with a fantastic chinese touch. there is not one bad cue. every track has at least one great moment. i know, hans likes to create new things, but i prefer him when he sticks with the traditional style of score. he shows that he can still do it.Gotta be honest here...while I know that the mantra on this site is "credits don't really matter," it's still nice for me to know that Hans did NOT just phone this in like the initial credit listing made me suggest. Not only did he end up doing the excellent finale of the film on his own (with more complex orchestration than usual for him!), but he also did a very impressive and genuinely bombastic John Powell impression. I had no idea he could even write something like "Hungry for Lunch"! He just doesn't really write like that, at least in 2016. Props, Hans. <br><br>This really is, I think, the last time I trust initial credits to say Zimmer didn't do anything. I was wrong on Inception, I was wrong here, and we were ALL wrong on Batman v Superman. Zimmer usually does more than we'd think.

Composer Zimmer Talks Sherlock Holmes, Inception, Dark Knight, It’s Complicated



In many ways, the best thing about Sherlock Holmes is its score (released January 12), featuring exotic Hungarian and gypsy instruments. It’s one of about a hundred movie scores delivered by prolific German composer Hans Zimmer, who has earned six Oscar nominations; he won for The Lion King in 1994.

Articulate and charming, Zimmer invited me to his lair in Santa Monica, a sprawling complex housing other composers as well as rooms crammed with synthesizers, computers and towers of servers. He’s currently working on Inception for Chris Nolan, for whom he composed the score for The Dark Knight. He gave me a tour, showed me where and how he composes and explained his working process on the scores for Sherlock Holmes, It’s Complicated, Gladiator, and The Dark Knight. He even plays a bit.

Hans Zimmer, Academy Award Press Statement

Conan Doyle realized that a successful lead character needs to play the fiddle. I wish all filmmakers did. It makes writing the score so much easier. With Guy's great encouragement we took the orchestra out of the lofty spheres of the concert hall and brought them back to the pub, where they seem right at home. After all, There is no human emotion that has not - at one time or other - been profoundly expressed in a pub, and I'm so grateful that my peers at the Academy have recognized that. This is the year where we pit the humble banjo against the might of the orchestra.

Hans Zimmer
