h ttps://www.youtube.com/watch? v=sekmQqx OhWM<br><br>From the developers.<br><br>Producer: Hans Zimmer<br>Composer: Lorne Baffle<br>Symphony Orchestra: Chamber Orchestra of London<br>Recording Studio: Abbey Road Studio<br><br>Fun theme by Lorne.But maybe at that time he didn’t have that version yet (in his mind i mean)<br>But... the intensity was crazy!Everything is great, except one thing - he did not add that intense music that played on the train when there was a battle. Well maybe I missed something while listening the album.Zimmer = Lorne is your answer.WAA WAA WAAAAAAAA
What's with the credits here? Howard Shore? No Lorne Balfe?I genuinely was surprised that they went with Richter in the first place. <br><br>Literally just came out of the movie and I can’t believe such a dull and generic score could come from the names attached. What happened? Other than that beautiful almost sweeping string theme (that went nowhere) - there’s nothing. <br>I kept waiting for the music to peak and reach a hundred but it never did. <br><br>It’s no Interstellar, no First Man, no Gravity, not even The Martian.Link to said theme?The synth man creating a mostly synthesizer score? what a shock...because that's what Hans does
Main theme is on Youtube. I quite like it. I prefer Hans doing themes like this rather than the stuff he is doing with FIFA.I'm surprised no one is talking about this one, its one of Rupert's best scores imo.Lately I have been listening to the album carefully, and the truth is that I did not quite understand why Hans did not just use a big orchestra instead of the synthesizer.It would have really been interesting to see Ritcher scoring a chase on the photo, although without a doubt his work would not have been anything generic.Richter is a conceptual artist, I love his Leftovers score, but come one, scoring to picture ?<br><br>He writes pieces that are used in scenes, not the other way around...<br><br>Richter scoring a moon buggy chase ? Hell no... lol you could see from day one it was gonna be replaced...
^ Yeah the edit floating around matches Felix’s almost to a T. Only major difference is <br><br>“Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale”<br><br>Which is broken up into four separate cues. Realistically you could edit it anyway you want if you prefer the smaller cues. Personally, I like the long suite-like format of this release. Kinda like the album release for “Event Horizon” lol.I hope they at least release Richter's score.My Edit:<br><br>01. Rise Of An Empire - Marathon - King Darius - Artemisia - Man To God - War (13:36)<br>= <br><br>M1A Rise of An Empire (09:48)<br>M1B From Man to God King (03:44)<br><br>02. Greek Council - Persian War Plan - Spartan Fight Training - Greek Conversation - Your Commander Is Greek (10:47) <br>=<br><br>M2 Greek Council (03:39)<br>M3 Greek Conversation (07:06)<br><br>05. Suicide - General Bandari - Circle Battle (7:30) <br>=<br><br>M6 Suicide/General Bandari (02:10)<br>M7 Circle Battle (05:16)<br><br>06. Sex - Fire Battle (12:04) <br>=<br><br>M10 Sex (05:36)<br>M11 Fire Battle (06:21)<br><br>11. Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale (16:08) <br>=<br><br>M15-17A Our Final Stand/Showdown Pt.1 (08:19)<br>M17B-19 Showdown Pt.2/Finale (07:37)I'm not really interested in Balfe's part of work, but it would be a big disappointment if Richter's work wouldn't released.<br><br>But I think there's a good chance that movie (and music in particular) get an Oscar nominations, so let's just hope for the best.@mpolonest123 any idea how to break up the really long cues on the complete? it’s a lot of tracks that are made up of several cues

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.
