Heard Hans Zimmer at Merriweather Post Pavilion. What a mind bowing performance.Hey Hybrid,<br><br>Will they ever release the track they pieced together for the 7 Minute IMAX Preview/Prologue?just commented on the WaterTower Music yt channel. (i waited a day lol!) <br><br>Hans and his team made me the best birthday present ever : )<br><br>i like seeing the "few notes" principle Hans explained in his Masterclass. this score takes it to a master high level.<br><br>i would like to say in passing that the experiment on Inferno  (ambient music) can be felt through this score. and i love it!<br><br>thanks Hans, Lorne, Andrew, Benjamin, and anyone involved. thanks Hybrid Soldier, your fan website is the best!The rendition of What Are You Going To Do When You're Not Saving The World in the new Justice League trailer is pretty cool, at least it shows they have not forgotten this theme :-pMy one hope is that this doesn't mean Chris Nolan will be tying Zimmer's hands behind his back for future scores. If he wants to do that here, okay. I can get over one score. But I hope Nolan doesn't keep calling for this non-melodic approach.
That was one of my favorites, wish it was on the OST.Yeah, was also looking for that track.Nolan's liner notes, which explains a lot on the score :<br><br>"British people are raised on the story of Dunkirk. The events of the evacuation are sacred ground, not to be ventured onto without great care. Daunting for a filmmaker. But the things that place Dunkirk so firmly at the heart of a nation's self-image are the very qualities that make it one of the greatest stories in human history. Irresistible to a filmmaker.<br><br>This film required a remarkable creative team, and Hans Zimmer, as well as having been a valued member in the past, knows how to assemble his own great team. From our first meeting, where I described to the percussionist, Satnam Ramgotra, the unusual rhythmic structure of the script and how it needed to be amplified by the music, through the finishing touches applied by Lorne Balfe during our last weeks of mixing, the importance of teamwork was paramount. The process nicely echoed the circumstances of the events we were trying to honour- a triumph of communal effort, not individual heroism.<br><br>When I called Hans one night with a one word suggestion- "Nimrod", I wasn't sure he'd accept experimenting with an existing theme for the climax of the film. To my surprise, he knew just who to call to achieve the deconstruction of Elgar's monumental theme, a theme as beloved to the English as Dunkirk itself, often played at ceremonial occasions and funerals. It's a theme which (I never admitted to Hans) I am incapable of hearing without feeling the surprising weight of my father's coffin on my shoulder. Hans brought in Benjamin Wallfisch, who, in collaboration with the great music editor Alex Gibson and myself, fashioned a modern reworking that grows out of the sights and sounds of the movie- tapping the original's resonances without feeling unearned. Hans's brass accents complete the piece's power to move without sentimentalizing.<br><br>Hans went on to incorporate Elgar's theme elsewhere in the score, a score that on this album has been divided into cues, but which in the film plays as one long piece with a unifying and complex rhythmic and tonal structure. The structure of the screenplay itself builds upon the shepherd tone concepts I first explored with composer David Julyan in the soundtrack for "The Prestige", but here Zimmer's team (in particular Andy Page and Andrew Kawczynski) and I added a whole new rhythmical structure. This can't be fully represented on the album, but in the film it is able to integrate sound effects and even story structure into the very fabric of the music in a new and unique manner.<br><br>The rigid structure, to which we adamntly stuck, at times proved frustrating for the musicians, but they persevered and produced extraordinary cues based on unusual solutions (such as a recording of my watch that Hans and his team adapted into many different rhythmic voices). The disciplined procedural approach stopped the music for "Dunkirk" from ever resorting to arbitrary cinematic emotionalism, something Hans and I always felt was vital, given the inherent emotional heft of the real life events. This has been a long and hard journey, but I am proud of the final results, and hope that you will share my appreciation for the talent of the artists who worked so hard for so long on this score.<br><br>CHRISTOPHER NOLANI don't think emotion and melodies = Oscar worthy. Dunkirk's score fits in with the movie far better than Chappie.Saw the film again last night and there are a ton of great cues missing, especially from the first half of the film. It's a crime the cue when they carry the stretcher onto the ship wasn't included.
The answer is: Christopher Nolan ;-)It doesn't crossfade as much as, say, The Dark Knight Rises or Inception, but there is  very rarely dead air. I haven't listened enough times to determine when it does and doesn't crossfade, but the tracks are, at least, very closely edited together.I Love Hans' stuff but this score didn't really do it for me. I don't see how people are repping this as Oscar worthy but trash something like CHAPPiEs score, something with actual emotion and melodies.This soundtrack will win an oscar . It's great to see Balfe back with Zimmer. Dream teamDoes anyone know whether the cd version actually has the cues crossfading into each other? Since in the film the score plays almost as an entire cue, it would have made sense if they did that. It sounds like some cues in the digital version end kind of awkwardly, like 'Impulse' and 'Home'. These cues fade out while there still seems to be some instrumentation progression going on. Hence the crossfade thought...
Oooh credits. I'm guessing from these it's going to be disqualified from entering Oscar nominations because<br>1. Use of a classical musical piece throughout<br>2. More than one guy is credited.<br><br>Anyway, that's how Hans always liked, crediting everyone.I have to agree on the soundtrack being mostly unlistenable...<br><br>This is nothing like Inception, or even Interstellar.<br><br>I seriously doubt there's going to be a big stink made about any track from this score the likes of "No Time For Caution" back in 14...<br><br>I tried...I tried real hard to find something to keep me interested in this score, but I personally couldn't find anything. Most of it is tension building noise. I'm sure it's great within the film, but outside the film? Not so much.<br><br>I guess Zimmer is on "retirement mode" now...He's slowing down and not wanting to produce the rockin stuff that he used to...I can't blame him, but still...This score sounds like a total experiment.Sorry bud...<br><br>Its not.Hi everyone, does anyone know the name of the music in the Dunkirk Trailer 1 at 01:30? It doesn't not seem to be in the score, I'm assuming it's not in the movie, I'm going to see it Sunday. If anyone knows the music or where to find it, please Comment, thanks!Tina had a lot of work to do here!

How do you know?


Lazarus2017-02-03 08:37:37
Logic. It would be the first time, an artist releases his concert on DVD while he is touring with the very same program.


Jim2017-02-06 09:03:04
If someone can get in touch with Eagle Rock and ask them, that would be great. I've sent them two emails and was completely ignored.


philip2017-02-06 18:34:34
@Lazarus: This is exactly what I thougt before. Unfortunately you are right as this would be kinda stupid to release it now.
Still I think it sucks as we are waiting for this for ages now. Why giving the first track for free when nothing else is coming...

@Jim: Same here. I sent them an e-mail last week and I do not expect them to answer anymore.

Still no news about the CD / Blu-Ray of the Live 2016.

The only thing I've found is the official web page of the Blu-Ray producer, they say it's comming soon:

Interesting, it's A company based in London: Here is their shop, looks A bit cheesy not Really up to date www.eagle-store.com I see A lot of Dutch names in the production for Hans's concert. Interesting We'll see........what will happen the next month.


David2017-01-25 18:32:21
I cannot come to the show since he doesn't planned, though I really like to buy the CD. when are you going to release it.

Mephariel reply Replies: 3 || 2017-01-16 16:44:52
Leona Lewis's "Now We Are Free" is probably the best one. It provides a softer version of the theme.

Besides that, Vengerov's "Light" is my second favorite.

2 Cellos' "Mombasa" and Stirling's The Dark Knight are interesting to listen to.

I think that is about it.


Leona2017-01-17 10:47:01
Seriously, Leona Lewis' interpretation was the worst i have heard. I always thought she can sing as hell, but when i've heard "Now we are free" from her, my ears have bleeded. It was really bad, many notes were wrong and unenjoyable. She tried it so hard, that it sounded like an amateur singer. For me that song is the worst song in this "collection". A complete fair :(


Leona2017-01-17 10:47:40
fail*


Patrick2017-01-17 10:56:56
I have to agree with Leona: Leona Lewis' "Now we are free" is like the rock band Queen after Freddie Mercury has died: It's so unique, not a single singer will be able to match it. The closest was the singer in the initial Hans Zimmer Revealed Concerts in London.

Hybrid Soldier2017-01-04 22:54:52
Nope nope nope.

I'm interested in HZ's career, not what others make up of his music !


Mike2017-01-04 23:55:37
Whoa, if Roger Sayer is doing the Docking scene, might it be closer to the film version (full organ)?!


???2017-01-05 12:55:42
Come on! Even Tina Guo's solo album is listed here :P


kek2017-01-05 13:29:52
Yeah, but the problem with your logic is that this is the official HZ website, not the "what does Hybrid Soldier feel interested in" website.

Are french people really this dumb?


Hybrid Soldier2017-01-05 19:05:06
Nope, I made it become official over the years, and one of my missions has always been to clean things up among the shitload of CDs using the name "Hans Zimmer" on them.

Ultimately, yes, it is what I am interested in... If I ever add that "Classics" CD there, it sure will never end up in Hans' discography !


Ds2017-01-05 21:04:20
Hybrid, do you know if HZ had anything to do with this release at all? It seems like such a bad idea, and I'm not really fond of the few tracks that have been released so far, it just doesn't sound as good as the originals.


Paul2017-01-07 21:48:48
I just wonder why was this album promoted in the concert programme I bought during the show then, if Hans really has nothing to do with it...


e2017-01-08 06:02:15
The Dark Knight Rises thing was hideous honestly. :

Just sounds like a cello poorly dubbed over the original.


Patrick2017-01-13 00:20:28
This is really, really an unimportant release. Mombasa, played by 2Cellos, is the only one, which sounds kind of interesting, the rest is absolutely boring and doesn't add any value to Hans Zimmers work.


Sean2017-01-13 12:39:17
I like the new interpretations of Hans Zimmer's music. But they also could have been uploaded here like the fans arrangements.


boring2017-01-15 17:08:42
whose idea was this release.

Some of the tracks are actually abysmal. I thought hans hated his name being slapped on shit exploitative releases like this.


Kalman2017-01-16 15:10:30
Well, I for one like this release! I don't think it is exploitative; I rather enjoy the specific musical ideas and new orchestrations/instruments present in the tracks. It is far better than just another Prague re-recording of Hans' music.


Sean2017-01-16 18:37:46
The sticker on the album says:
"The best of Hans Zimmer
+ selected by him*
+ new arranged
+ new recorded with top stars"

*Hans Zimmer made a song selection of this album and was involved in this project.

It's pretty cool that he'll play in front of such a broad audience. At the same time it's horribly painful to see his name written in such small letters while Beyonce takes half the page :-p
Let's hope he won't have to play early in the afternoon, because this concert is at its most spectacular when it's completely dark. I can't imagine The Dark Knight played in daylight!

I love Spidey 2, but I agree that if one track should be removed, it's definitely that one. It's not an iconic score in HZ's career, it really seems out of place when you think about the set list and the amount of scores that didn't make it...

World Tour ?

Guys, while checking the Antwerp Sportpaleis site for the June 20th 2017 concert, the french speaking page mentions this :

"Les concerts live d’Hans Zimmer en 2017 commenceront sur la côte ouest des États-Unis et parcourront l’Australie et la Nouvelle-Zélande avant de venir en Europe, d’o&#249; Hans et ses musiciens repartiront aux États-Unis pour leur premi&#232;re grande tournée américaine."

Which can be translated by :

"Hans Zimmer 2017 live concerts will start on the West Coast of the US and will travel all around Australia and New-Zealand before heading back to Europe, from where Hans and his musicians will go back to the US for their first huge American tour.

Has anyone heard of this ?
