As a current music student I am pursuing a degree in music technology (the closet degree my university offers to composing). I am attending this school because it offered me a very large scholarship for music but does not offer a composing degree. My main concern is should I transfer to a school with this degree or just complete my music tech degree and compose? In other words, would a music technology degree hinder my chances of getting a job in composing?
i wouldn't feel right visiting this page and not expressing to you the impact your music has had on my life. To be more specific, the musical score from Gladiator and how profoundly powerful and true to the film it really was. 14 years later and I still consider it the best musical score of any movie I've ever seen (my opinion, of course). The success of that film is attributed to your musical genius. Thank you for pouring your heart and soul in to your work and wishes to you for your continued success.
Mr Zimmer ! I am a Digital Media student of Edinburgh Napier University, I am doing Sound Production module with Dr. Iain McGregor. Is it possible to get some critics regarding my project I have done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oWNpej9XC0 My e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Regards Roman
Hello Mr Zimmer, I enjoy your music a lot. I was wondering...... (here goes) Would you do a collaboration with Two Steps From Hell, Instrumental Core or any other soundtrack creator. I think it would be a great idea!
I just worked my butt off,for 2 weeks-and then i read the RULES ! You are not in the competition if you are NOT a citizen of these countries ; 2.4 This Competition is open to residents of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada (excluding Quebec), Germany and Sweden only Im living in my native Copenhagen,9 km from Sweden-and that fact disqalify´s me from the contest ! Just be shure you know these "rules" before youre get youre hopes up ! I simply find Hans Zimmer FRAUDULENT when he says "Come-ALL composers-I Want You ! Hans Zimmer DONT want you if youre not from those-seemingly arbitrary countries ! Good Luck (with that name-youll need it!)
Really? It took you two weeks to rework this? Then you're clearly wrong for this job anyway because over here in LA you have to write a minimum of 2 minutes a day, for TV even more - in the same quality as that competition piece.
Also, don't call him fraudulent, please. They clearly marked the rules, it's your fault for not reading them beforehand. Lashing out at him and his peers for your mistake is not fair. Also, I'm guessing that the reason for the country restrictions is simply a VISA reason - it is very hard to get in the US so I'm guessing they have some go-to people for these specific countries. For all other countries, it would probably simply be too hard or expensive to get a VISA.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that Zaine Griff will be releasing a CD of remastered demos from the 1978 - 1981 on the 15th May. The collection featuring 14 tracks in total, will include several recorded with Hans Zimmer and Warren Cann (Ultravox)recorded around the period of the 'Figvres' and unreleased 'Spies' sessions. In an unashamed plug, please head over to my Zaine site for more info. www.zainegrif.co.uk
Hello, master Zimmer, I present my name is Remy and I live in France. I address this message to you to express my gratitude and thank you for the happiness you bring to me through your music compositions, I am your work for more than a decade, despite the time ever you get to amaze me. Some of your songs are so precious to me, they come to expressed a lot of feelings in me, indescribable. People have dreams to be an actor or singer, to be rich to travel. Me if I have a dream, nothing happened for a minute with you in the studio and see you at work, this dream is unattainable, I ask you if you could send me an autographed photo that you will for me a small portion of my dream fulfilled. Thank you very much and good luck! If I give you my contact information.Rémy Calédonien Rue du bois venay Bâtiment Provence Appt 28 28350 Saint Lubin Des Joncherets France
I'm a Performance major at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and will be working with a lot of composers in the future. For my final Artistry, Creativity, and Inquiry seminar project, I get to present the views and experience of one expert in film scoring, and I'd like that person to be you. Because of your amazing work for film such as The Lion King, and The Dark Night, your creation of a variety, and your unique background which was raised by musician mother, and engineer father, I know my class would be really interested in getting your insights into film scoring. Would it be possible for us to have a brief 10-15 minute discussion about this over the phone or Skype in the next 3 weeks? I know how busy you must be, so if it isn't possible, I completely understand and appreciate your considering it.
Could you make an option to load the latest releases as a LIST? Right now there is the scrolling bar at the top of the website, which is an improvement from the previous arrow controls. But could you make a "See All" option so that we could view all the latest soundtracks released in a list?
Mr. Zimmer: I have zero talent at anything and can only admire and appreciate from afar, both literally and figuratively, but I have watched Angels and Demons over and again, I am mesmerized by the score. I am an atheist, perhaps my lack of talent makes me so, perhaps religion is also a talent or a gift as Professor Langdon suggests. As such I cannot "feel" what one might feel by making beautiful music and I know I cannot truly appreciate it or the actually hard work and effort that refines the talent. Even as a non-believer, the Vatican has always had a fascination for me and this perfect score deepens my appreciation of the beauty of the art, the antiquity, and the tradition of so many centuries of the Church's dogged perseverance. This music will also persevere. The music rises above the silly fantasy in the film as well as the actual blandness of the church outside it's beautiful and bright trappings. The score is so much more than the film, the value of the film is really the art that it displays with it's admittedly high production values (led by your score), which makes it very watchable. When this film is forgotten, the score will still remain and I hope it one day finds itself in a film that fully matches it. Thank you for this beautiful music, it makes me feel like a better person just by listening to it. Thank you for making life a little better.
Dear all, I'm seeking publishing rights to "Maestro" composition by Hans Zimmer (there's a synch request for it). It used to be controlled by Universal Music Publishing in the past. But now the publisher seems to have changed and I cannot find it. Do you have any idea about it?
I'm a huge admirer of your work and have used some of your orchestration ideas in many of my own compositions! As I'm sitting here listening to some of your tracks, I wonder how you work through your compositional ideas--essentially, how do you take an idea and put it to music?
The reason I ask is because classical composers (Beethoven, for instance) have sketchbooks that we can observe and see their compositional process. But since composers started using technology to write, these "sketches" aren't around. I guess what I'm asking is what would your sketchbook look like?
I am madly in search of the greek sounding theme from the little 1987 thriller "The Wind"/aka "Edge of Terror". Hans Zimmer took part in the credits and I think, he wrote that wonderful piece of music. But can't find it anywhere on CD. Does anyone know something about it or where to get it?
It has never been released on CD. You should by the DVD and rip the score from it
Bad news, but thanks very much for answering. Now I know, I can stop my searching. The DVD is already mine.
How does one start learning the trade? Classical music and movie scores are all I enjoy listening to, and I want to do something in the music field for a lifetime gig. But I have no idea where to start, being a freshman in highschool.
