15 years after founding the Hans-ZIMMER.com website on the following day of the concert in Ghent in 2000, I finally have the opportunity to attend the upstream work of an event that everyone will remember: October's 2014 London concerts "Hans ZIMMER REVEALED & friends".
Indeed, the expanded Hans-Zimmer.com team was there at the beginning of this event since September 22nd with special permission to film the creation of an important highlight of the composer's career.
There are countless anecdotes about the auteuristic quirks of director Christopher Nolan, whose Interstellar comes out this week. For some new ones, check out an in-depth profile by The Guardian's Tom Shone, which includes an amazing story about how Nolan got frequent partner Hans Zimmer to write the theme for his space epic.
Hans ZIMMER to work on the next Johnny MARR' solo album
Hans Zimmer has revealed that he has plans to work on Marr's next solo album, following their work together on the soundtracks to the likes of Inception and The Amazing Spiderman 2
"I want him to play some synthesizers and arrange some string parts," Johnny MARR said, "because he's an amazing pop arranger as well, he's got a pop sensibility, so I'm quite interested in putting that to the test and getting him to do some electronic strings maybe, and some keyboards."
Dominic Lewis confirmed to Hans-Zimmer.com he is currently scoring the upcoming British film Spooks - The Greater Good, starring Kit Harrington & Peter Firth, directed by Bharat Nalluri. The film, continuing from the British spy series of the same name, Spooks, is planned for release sometime in 2015.
