Eh, Shore is a smart composer. He could make it work. I guess whether that's what studios think audiences want is another question entirely...Is it me or are none of the soundtracks on the website showing the sample tracks that you could listen to anymore?Have you heard that Henry Jackman will composing his music for the upcoming 2019 picture called Pokemon: Detective Pikachu?  I wonder what the film soundtrack would sound like.  Hmm...I think that Howard´s style of music doesn´t really fit to the post apocalyptic genreFor a Peter Jackson production I was expecting Howard Shore.
I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!I was this tracklist for a 3rd cd floating around, is this legit ?<br><br><br>Disc 1  <br>1.

Frozen NightAbout his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).
a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for me
Aw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.

Sound Byte: Meet the Composer - Disney Epic Mickey's Jim Dooley

James (or Jim) Dooley is an Emmy-award-winning composer who graduated from New York University. (He was also a speaker at this year's PAX, which you can read about here.) In 1999, he began working with Hans Zimmer on Gladiator, which then led him to work on movies such as The Da Vinci Code, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, King Arthur, and many more. In addition to having an extensive background in film, he's a prolific composer in other forms of media, including television, where in 2008 he won an Emmy for his music in the hit ABC series Pushing Daisies. When it comes to video games, though, he has worked on Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, a couple of SOCOM games, and, of course, Disney Epic Mickey. Watch our interview below to find out what kinds of challenges he faced when it came to reimagining some of Disney's most famous tunes.

Matthew Margeson Gets In Line With The Sky

I started banging around on an old organ that my parents had in the house when I was about 4 years old or so. My parents thought it would be a good idea to start some lessons very soon after. When I turned 5... they hired this old, old man to come to our house every week and give lessons. I think he was maybe 72 years old or so when he started teaching me, and he actually was my private instructor for the next 12 years.

Throughout my youth, I was very much involved in musical theatre. I was involved in a lot of community theatre, doing musical direction for performances. During this time, I also had a little part-time job working at a small local video rental store. Because there was very little foot traffic at the store - the employees basically just hung around all day and watched films. I think both of these situations were a good recipe for me to have a strong interest in film music. I watched a lot of movies, I played a lot of music, and had quite a bit of experience performing music live to people acting on stage.

I studied Film Scoring & Composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and shortly after - drove out to Los Angeles. That, and a little bit of working with the right people in LA kind of brings us to where I am today.

Hans Zimmer to join Hollywood Walk Of Fame -UPDATED-



Hans Zimmer is to be honoured with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, organizers announced Thursday.

The 53-year-old will receive star number 2426 at an unveiling ceremony tomorrow. Guests are to include director Christopher Nolan, whose recent films Inception, The Dark Knight and Batman Begins are all accompanied by Zimmer's music.

The composer said he would dedicate his star to agent Ronni Chasen who was murdered in Hollywood last month, shot in her car on Sunset Boulevard. Chasen had represented Zimmer for many years.

Hans Zimmer was nominated twice for a Grammy this week, for his work on Sherlock Holmes and Inception.
