Any news about Hans Next project?Does Hans compose music for releasing as his own records? I wish he'll make someI think BGM stands for any sort of background music, e.g. caffe music, game themes and, sometimes, film scores. But, IMO, "score" sounds way beter than "BGM"<br><br>p.s. Plz, do not my English, imma russian...One last topic I want to cover for this score, and that's the references to past films. I've found quite a few new ones that may be interesting.<br><br>"Today We Hunt" - Reference to "Bumblebee" at the end of the track.<br><br>"History of Transformers" - Reference to "Bumblebee", the end of "Are You Ladiesman 217?", and a sort of rebuilding of the Autobot theme using it's main notes.<br><br>"Two Moons" - Contains the main 2 notes of "Decepticons" repeated through the entire track, and of course elements of "We Were Gods Once".<br><br>"Prime Versus Bee" - Contains the drum beat featured in "Optimus vs Megatron"<br><br>"Your Voice" - Reference to "Optimus", the escalation of notes featured in scenes where Optimus is almost defeated ("Optimus vs Megatron" and the beginning of "I Claim Your Sun"), the 3 notes of "We Were Gods Once" when Optimus is about to be killed, and of course "Arrival to Earth/There Is No Plan".<br><br>"Battlefield" - Basic notes of the end of "You're A Soldier Now" and the Autobot theme in the 3 note horn section.<br><br>"Did You Forget Who I Am" - Autobot theme plays in the build-up before the "You're a Soldier Now" reprise. (Also maybe a hint of "Skorponok" at the end?)<br><br>The rest has already been pointed out on this website.Bring Him Home and Future King are great
The show is very good.we managed to watch the show in two days!the music by Gregson-Williams and Balfe is perfect. The score is some of the best TV music at the moment.going to defiantly buy the album now and see what it’s like2049 is by Ben, confirmed.generalizing all direct and indirects participations in Zimmer's career, I think this role is of Glennie Smith...<br><br>Second half of 1970-forever.@Ben: "Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either."<br><br>The original presentation, of 1994, is not very good to confess. They left out the score to emphasize the songs. However the latest launches "expanded score" and "Legacy Collection" (in my opinion) are among the best as Gladiator, the last Samurai,Prince of Egypt, House of Spirits, Rain Man,<br>Backdraft, regarding Henry,Beyond Ragoon, the Rock, King Arthur, Interstellar, Rush, At worlds End and the Dark Knight (The Collector's version). I like many themes by Hans, but when I come to head the organization factor of the albums most satisfactory these are some of the few that comes to mind.What's the involvement of EW in the Mermaid Suite? I always imagined it that way: Hans being responsible for the first part of the suite, the calmest, Geoff taking care of the piece that corresponds to the moment of the sirens attack and that Eric inserted the choir to finish the composition.
In the last 7 years or so the only Oscar that I think was deserved is Gravity by Steven price. By the way hybrid it was a tough comment for me. Thanks to all people here who think it was.<br>I totally agree that the music fit the movie perfectly Hans always did great job in this but as a standalone music for me and again (for me) the docking in interstellar do all the job on Dunkirk ( I mean suspense) so for me all Dunkirk soundtrack = docking in interstellar.<br>quote: "This score is nothing compared to interstellar or even to POTC 3."<br><br>How do you know or how do you judge? By musical complexity, number of themes, etc.? I think the Dunkirk score perfectly serves the movie - which is what it's supposed to do.<br><br>Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either - on its own. So it would kind of make sense for a score like Dunkirk to get him the award.<br><br>After all, when it comes to the academy, I don't think they look at a score in isolation - like we do as Zimmer fans - but rather how well it serves the film. If they love a film and let it win best picture and other categories, it's very likely they'll also give it "best original score".Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?
man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.

Harry Gregson-Williams' tribute to TONY SCOTT



"Today felt like a good day to share an edit I made of some of the music I'd written for Tony Scott films that I had hoped to have played at his Memorial Celebration held in LA earlier this year. Although I did indeed have the honor of speaking at that event, there was no chance for this to be heard. So rather than have it fade away on the cutting room floor, here it is. I hope it evokes dome decent memories from his wonderfully diverse films for one or two of you, and it makes you smile just a bit.

It did me!"
