The 52 min Sketchbook... lolYes, because Powell never uses quick trumpet writing... :p<br><br>I can hear both composers' voices, but Powell's is simply a stronger voice...so his sound tends to dominate for me, even though it may well be an even collaboration. "My Son is Alive/My Fist Hungers for Justice" sounds more like "pure" Balfe to me, although ironically the theme owes a lot to How to Train Your Dragon!<br><br>The Zimmerish ascending scales are a holdover from the bridge cue from the first KFP, so I'm guessing it's an adaptation of a Zimmer idea by Powell/Balfe.<br><br>Geesh, what a clusterfuck all this is. I guess it's old-fashioned of me to say this, but why can't we just have ONE guy compose everything, no confusion, no fuss? :pOMG! 123 minutes... i hope for going to be goodBenjamin Wallfisch is a pretty fine composer in his own right. Have a listen to some of the stuff on his website.I dunno Edmund, all of "More Cannons" sounds like Balfe to me. It has the "Shen" rhythm running throughout the entire track as its foundation. And listen to the quick trumpet writing, it's the same sort you hear in Megamind, and even in "Zen Ball Master". The swirling woodwinds and strings sound very Powellish though, and the ascending scales at 1:51 sound like a Zimmer contribution. <br><br>@Mike - "My Son is Alive" sounds exactly like Lorne though.
Besides, didn't Hybrid say Lorne "mimicked" Powell's sound for the end of My Son is Alive? It wouldn't be a stretch to assume he did so for other parts of the score, too.We already had this discussion but "More Cannons" is basically a variation on the track "Hero" from the first movie which, as we can all agree was mostly done by Powell. That explains the "Powellish" sound.<br><br>DoneTHE LIN KING IS HIS BET WORKYeah, you can kind of tell Balfe worked on that one when the Megamind rhythm kicks in 30 seconds before the end. The rest of the cue sounds more Powellish to me though.
(And by the looks of it, Balfe did more work here than Zimmer did... lol).This whole score has some great cues by Lorne Balfe. In Zimmer's own words, "Lorne Balfe was really a hero on that score." :P"More Cannons" one of Balfe's best cues. Listened to it today and it was great! That is all.Nice, love artworks! Means it's coming quite soon.<br><br>Also, can't wait for alternate covers, there are great posters, both official and fan-made out there.UK residents only...
Oh, and to resurrect the typical film version vs original cue issue, I'd also love the film version of The Rest of My Life...so much more moving than the album version IMO. Though I do understand that the album was already put together by the time they altered it.Still no "date" but don't worry it's coming. Artwork is ready. Wait & see...If I could have at least two unreleased cues....It would be "The Flying Montage" and "I Can't Lose You Too". <br><br><br>I wouldn't mind having the stems from the Electro Suite, personally.This could be another TF4, with delays and such after the film release, but it didn't take long anyways. And I believe the first Interstellar soundtrack was because Nolan and Hans wanted people to hear the soundtrack in the film first, or something like that.

Lieber Hans Zimmer,
ich hoffe Sie nehmen es mir nicht übel daß ich meinen Kommentar auf deutsch verfasse.
Ich finde es sehr traurig daß Sie, mal wieder, bei der Oscar- Verleihung leer ausgegangen sind. Meiner Meinung nach sollte die Academy den besten Komponisten Hollywoods endlich wieder mit dem Oscar ehren.
Machen Sie und Ihr Team weiter wie bisher, entführen Sie die Menschen auch weiterhin musikalisch in eine andere Welt und tragen Sie auch so weiterhin dazu bei, Kino zu einem wirklich fesselden Erlebnis zu machen.
Mit den besten Grüßen aus Deutschland
Sebastian S.

I am in the process of creating a video on Atom Interferometry which involves Quantum Mechanics and I very much would love to use Hans Zimmer song as a background. Would you please be so kind to tell me what is the name of Hans Zimmer publisher so I may get permission for one of his songs?. "Waking Up" from the movie "Oblivion" is the one I want to use. Please advice.
Very appreciatively,
Arthur Hernandez

Yeah, Oblivion isn't by Zimmer...although given how similar that cue is to "Time", maybe you really are asking in the right place after all!


Anonymous2015-02-02 02:28:31
Edmund, I think you need your ears checked if you think "Waking Up" sounds even remotely similar to "Time"


Edmund Meinerts2015-02-02 09:59:29
Derpty derpty doo, I was mixing it up in my head with "Fearful Odds". FAYUL.

Fine. It sounds like "A Dark Knight" then. Same idea. :b

Is there any way to listen to some of the unreleased music? I'm a big fan of Zimmer music, and I own a couple of his movie scores, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End included, but when I look at the extended cut I'm disappointed. There are some beautiful pieces of music from the film that do not appear at all in the score, especially the malestrom scene, my favorite part being the end at Will's death. Why is that? I don't mind paying a little more for excellent music, I just wish it were available in good quality and by legitimate means!

Hallo!

Hans Zimmer is an incredible fantastic composer. Listening to his music I know what to strive for as composer.

Inspired of his great sountracks I have written my own

I loved, absolutely loved the soundtrack to Inception. Now Interstellar moves me in a way that is just amazing. I used to be a bit of a snob when it came to film music although as a 12 year old I kind of started collecting music soundtracks. But the music of Hans Zimmer is just brilliant. They work wonderfully when watching an amazing movie (The Nolan/Zimmerman combo is magic) and these soundtracks stand by themselves.

Just wanted to comment about the work you and team did for the Interstellar soundtrack. It was quite simply the most moving soundtrack I have ever heard in a film. I can't get enough of it. It is so incredibly beautiful, whenever I hear it, I swell with an intimacy and human presence towards something so grandiose. It is just electrifying. I swear this is stimulating a different part of my brain then any music before it.

Congratulations on a job well done.

sorry -
my englisch is too bad for what i want to say.

Lieber Hans
so ein kleines Motiv – trägt den ganze riesen Film …
Und es ist so traurig fragend, und vollkommen klar und so mitten durchs Herz.
Ich hab Interstellar erst gestern gesehen/gehört - ich habe ab dem ersten Moment gedacht, ich liebe das!

Eine Trennung durch einen ganzen Kosmos:
wie schlimm für die, die sich lieben;
und nur durch die Liebe kann es lösen.
Dieses wunderschöne Motiv trägt alles in sich.
Und der Rest ist einfach nur noch konsequent.
Das ist total geil gemacht: ich bin sehr berührt!
Danke und Grüße, Guido

I was a bit fast with my german comment and I thought about it – and now I try in Enlgish :-)
Interstellar has got an incredible Soundtrack!
In my opinion it is so often the very small thing, that shows us a real miracle.
This is so well and beautiful done in this movie - Thank you Hans!

May I say that your German comment was worded quite beautifully. At least until "total geil", although I still agree with that as well ;)

Pent up for so many years. Do not hope that this text will read Hans. But still I will write...a lot of music has pereslushal for his life. You can write a lot, how and what....but....I will give my opinion. When I listen to the music from the movie Gladiator...it's incredible! It's been 14 years, after I saw the movie and heard the music. And the truth is...when I was ill, music for film Gladiator...give me strength! Not very good for me with English...sorry...But...With a childhood dream to write music for films...without fanaticism...just really...a Lot of movies looked...and realized that the "pictures" that's not the point...don't believe?!))) turn off the sound and watch the movie!))) agree! the movie can "see" with your eyes closed...if you hear it!!!))) Ah...the Music for the film Gladiator....great work!!! Well, that life...allow...sad...not all...and it is unreal)( 1995 learn and I will learn....music...probably bad I'm a student...time still nobody. And all my dreams and music...stay with me...in a remote Russian province...I shall sit with swollen ears headphones))) and write music...Sorry friends...clumsy wrote...just not to convey...) only music......And the parents were told to study to be a doctor or engineer)))))) When he studied at the College of music...wrote the piece for two violins and cello))) it was very interesting! Ah...tomorrow night and day...and after all repeats.......but with us the music!!! And we are not alone! Never swear! Respect others! P. S. First time in my life spoke) With bad English of course)) Sorry) Wanted to know how Hans wrote music for orchestra.......or all in the Studio...how sad...wish with all my soul to see the world and to be heard in the music...but no one will hear...Dear Hans! I think You are a great composer! This is not flattery, it is my opinion! The melody for the movie Gladiator!!! Thank You, mr.Hans! Let my chord get lost among the millions...You are the best!

I was wondering if Hans Zimmer took any inspiration from Ysaye's Sonata Number 2. The theme is very similar to Interstellar's "Day One Dark."

Hello to LA from Germany! I LOVE Hans Zimmers music-my favorite is Inception which I listen to on all my long car rides to all the different theaters I work-just incredibly awsome! I got tickets for a concert in Berlin April 2015 with his music. Will Mr. Zimmer be there as well?
I wish I could meet and greet!

Watched Interstellar two days ago. What really stays with me is the awesome soundtrack, I mean, holy shit it was good. The soundtrack is spellbinding in the way Tchaikovski's music is. The Interstellar soundtrack will S.T.A.Y. with me for a long long time. Thank you Hans.

It's nice to see you finally released the "spinning Endurance docking" cue, but so far it seems it's exclusive to iTunes, and not on Amazon or Google Play. Will it remain an exclusive or will it be released on them too?

Your score for "Interstellar" is truly your finest work. I am a sound designer/composer myself, and a former professor of sound design. When I taught, I used movie scores to help the student understand good design (in context with the moment shown on screen).

"Interstellar" goes beyond 'good' - it is profound with its expressions of joy, hope, anguish, faith, anger, fear and other emotions too numerous to mention, invoking a sense of majesty. Thank you.

The Interstellar score hit me in a way no other film music has in a long time. Thank you for that, and please find some way to put it out on vinyl. Something about it makes me think that's the perfect way to capture all the density in the songs. The organs would really come to life.

I would like to thank Hans Zimmer for a wonderful soundtrack. I was blown away with the Lion King and the Thin Red Line Soundtrack. In my opinion out of all the collaborations with Chris Nolan the Interstellar Soundtrack is the best. The countdown sequence. The organ use during a piece I can´t remember. I would also like to thank everyone for sharing information about the cd. I hope they come out with a more complete version.
