It's not really that complicated...it's pieces of the Moody Bruce Transfiguration suite interspersed with bits of "Train Fight." ;) Hans could have easily done it himself. But anyway, the credits on this page are incomplete as it is, so we don't know. And it's really all Zimmer's music anyway, in this case, so...We can all just move along, I would say. :PPoor Dutch people... :PMy name is Antonius Bernardus Johannes Holkenborg. Father of a murdered child, husband of a murdered wife and blah blah blah you know the rest. ;)Well 2 more days to go. We can wait that long!Ooops new topic instead "reply" previous thread
Hybrid, check "Black Mass" trailer - "Music by: Tom Holkenborg" without JXL.His artist name was Junkie long before film scoring.<br><br>Funny thing is when he scored Dutch films he went with his real name Tom (though he's named Antonius Bernardus Johannes Holkenborg lol... remember the Antonius remix in Sherlock 2 ? ;)).<br><br>In Hollywood he went with Junkie (not on TDKR though), but he seems to go back toward Holkenborg recently. Now seems to be the transitional phase with the 2 names. I guess in the future he'll be Tom Holkenborg only... :) In the end, I don't matter as long as I know who we're talking about !! :)<br><br>Speaking of him and Mad Max, just check his recently posted videos, it's great insight !<br><br>youtube.com/watch?v=VkNeXS0Lmxc&list=PLPDbiB89zUSI-bAKsef_UC 87OMsHrv_tR&index=4One thing I don't understand, what's the deal with Tom v Junkie? What is the purpose of the two names? Which one does he go by? Which one will he use in the future?<br><br>And why, here, has he used both?It was Tom not Hans. Hybrid said it before.Nope !<br><br>Wait & see !
Please, someone leak this!!! Hybrid do you have a track you could add here?I'm convinced that Hans actually did Brothers in Arms. Must have stumbled in drunk one night.FYI the music that plays when Furiosa is stabbed during the final chase is in the piece "Immortan", about in the middle.<br><br>The piece starts off with the scene after the first chase when they lose the pregnant bride...Then it kicks into Furiosa's stab scene, then some other actiom  music I dont remember. <br><br>But in case you were looking for that bit to put right before Chapter Doof drops the bass, that's the track....Well of course he must have - Junkie is a protege of Hans Zimmer....Like all the other composers - Badelt, Jablosnky, Powell, etc. - When they first started their scores sounded similar to Hans' music in terms of orchestration and motifs used... <br><br>not to denigrade the man's work, but this doesn't surprise me and I'm fine with that...Junkie will develop his own sound eventually and explore new techniques, just as I'm sure Zimmer tutored him to do....Jesus I remember when both Powell and Jablonsky's scores sounded practicaly the same to Junkie's...And this was a decade ago.Don't mistake sound samples and music style.
Its always a surprise to see the fact that people / fans / critics / moviegoers / haters actually do not really (REALLY) listen to music. its either somewhat similar or its not and that is the end. the person behind the Hybrid Soldier name said not so long ago that there is zero Hans in this score, nothing...<br>well, its an interesting thing to say because the score that was released in europe and the version of the movie was maybe a special studio cut but I'm convinced that I heard many-many times the almost ancient Zimmer choir motif...<br>Hans started to use this signature motif somewhere around crimson tide and since then, everybody in remote control history, I mean everybody used it. also Hans is still today obsessed about it and nobody talks about this. its almost like the famous "danger motif" from Horner. but, yes its true that Hans is in re-invent mode every time, so sometimes its a female choir or sometimes male but fuck, dont bullshit around after 20 years of music.<br>other then that, yes its Junkie alone but in the end its not only his craft, he borrowed / used directly from HZ in this too.Now I saw what you meant! Indeed. Since when is Junkie THE film composer and Zimmer the co composer...I was Basically reiterating what you were saying.Right. Wonder if they still get to use RCP samples and things like that... they of course develop their own techniques but...Nope, been almost 15 years now... lol

Hans and team just want to thank you for such a great website.

Hans, Thank you so much for being such a huge inspiration to me. You are the reason i began composing music.

No one knows how to get the best out of a movie with music like you do.
I'm constantly amazed how your draw such emotion from every scene. Even a simple scene can have such a huge effect just because of the way you score it.

I've watched every movie you have worked on, from 'success is the best revenge', 'the zero boys' (you even made that good to watch) to 'prince of Egypt', 'Gladiator', 'last samurai' and everything else you have done.

I look forward more to your movies coming out than i do my own Birthday.

Thanks again
Mark Stothard.

Hans

Meine Duetsch is seer shlect, so in English.

As a life long enthusiast of sea chanties and old songs on nautical themes, I must say I am stunned by the beauty of "Jolly Sailor Bold" from the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack. When I saw the movie, I though to myself 'How have I missed this song among all the traditional songs of the sea I have heard?' I assumed it was of folk song a couple of centuries old. I was so surprised to find out it is a modern composition! I was further surprised to find out the composer isn't even a native speaker of English.

You crafted a work of art that sounds straight out of some waterfront of the early 19th century. Your choice of archaic turns of phrase, the slightly awkward fit of some of the words to the meter of the tune, and the imperfect transitions in a couple of verses give it the feel of a song that existed in several slightly different versions that periodically got recombined by different singers and passed on orally to new performers over many years.

I am curious to know how you came to be so familiar with traditional English songs of sailors and the sea. I am equally curious why the song is not included in the soundtrack CD from Pirates. I, for one, would buy it instantly if available. And given the number of places on the net that I found with people asking where to get the lyrics, recording of the song, and such, I think someone made a big mistake leaving it off the CD.

To give some sense of the level of interest, I found on YouTube about a dozen different videos of people who had found the lyrics and recorded the song themselves, a cappella, accompanied by classical harp, piano, you name it. The movie has been open less than a week. Clearly your work has touched a chord among music lovers. It is one form of popularity to find many pirated copies of a recorded song on the net - it is something very different to find so many individuals recording themselves singing it in so short a time.

This song is nothing short of a work of genius. Thank you for creating it.

Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer

In der Hoffnung dass Sie dieses hier lesen, möchten wir Ihnen kurz unser Projekt vorstellen. Wir drehen einen Dokumentarfilm über Unwetter in der Schweiz und Europa. Dazu gehören auch Klimawandel und vieles mehr.

Unsere Frage an Sie wäre nun: Dürfen wir ein paar Teile aus einigen Soundtracks für unsere Filmmusik verwenden? Ihr Name wird im Film erwähnt. Ersterer ist der von Madagaskar.

Unsere Kontaktmail lautet: d.kurz@scvswitzerland.ch

Vielen dank!

Hallo Herr Zimmer :)
Ich schreibe Ihnen hier in der Hoffnung, dass sie das lesen. Ich habe seit zwei Jahren einen Freund, der eine große Leidenschaft für Filmmusik hat, seitdem er hm ca 13-14 Jahre alt ist. Es wäre schön, wenn es machbar wäre mir eine Autogrammkarte von Ihnen zu schicken. Er fiebert wirklich bei jeder Oscar-verleihung mit und Sie inspirieren Ihn sehr! Es wär schön, wenn Sie oder Ihr Team mir eine Email schicken könnten, damit ich Ihnen die Adresse schicken kann.
Ganz liebe Grüße

Dear Hans Zimmer,

For so many years I have wondered if there would ever be a way to express the profound depth of gratitude I continually feel every time I listen to the brief 75 second theme you shared in the film "Driving Miss Daisy" which was used in several scenes: the retrospective in the empty home after Daisy was moved to an assisted living arrangement, the cemetary scene where Freeman is looking for the right headstone, and the last scene where he's helping her eat her pie. I used to study music and film in college, and it's been a life-long joy going back over half a century, but never have I EVER heard a theme that so tenderly and deeply expresses the over-arching spirit of a film as your brief composition in "Daisy." Quite honestly, it literally brings me to tears every time I hear it. I particularly love the sublime transition from a single sustained note at the beginning to the delicate, child-like wonder of what sounds like a harpsichord which then grows stronger into a fuller body of gentle affirmation. There's no way to express how deeply moved I am by this precious musical treasure. Thank you SO much.

Dear Mr. Zinner,

I have made a short video and would like to use your theme song for the movie "Broken Arrow." I have used another non-copyrighted song that is similar in the video, but as I am sure you will agree it does not compare!

My short video is entitled "EYESPOT is the Bomb!" and can be found on YouTube.

Who do I need to contact to get permission to use a short part of your Broken Arrow Theme song?

Keep up the great work!

Hello everyone:

I always thought that the music of Hans Zimmer deleted the complexities of harmony from other classical music. For me, the most interesting thing about this composer is the way he use the instruments and orchestra. Every time I hear the soundtracks of Gladiator, Lion King, Inception, Angels and Demons ... I can understand every move, the reason of the music. It's more than music stage. Good work, Zimmer. Very good work.

Hello Hans Zimmer,

I'm a big fan of all of your music and I love the music you composed for Inception. "Old Souls" takes me to a different world every time I listen. As summer approaches, I look forward to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and I have been constantly checking to see if previews would be available for your score. Today, I listened to the previews available on Amazon. Even though the previews were between 30 and 40 seconds, I'm a little concerned for the score. It's great that you are doing collaborations with other artists and creating music that you think fits the film best, but I don't understand why there is such little amount of your great original score. I'm assuming that the several remixes (included on the soundtrack) are not going to be played during the actual film because it would definitely transform the meaning and the world of the film in a significantly different way. Like you (or whoever was in charge of it) released two bonus tracks for Inception, I hope you do the same for Pirates 4. I'm also assuming that movie is at least 2 hours or even more (since the past movies have run for a great length). I'm not saying that your music is off key, I just want to hear more of it, especially if there is other music in the film. Whoever agrees with my perspective of this probably also feels that we are being cheated. Hopefully, some other tracks can be released.

Best,

Frank

Mr. Zimmer,

You music has so much emotion to it. I never knew you were the man behind every amazing movie score. One of my friends had shown me some of your work and i was beyond inspired by your music. I also produce music and after listening to some of your music i had an idea. I made a wonderful edit of your song Time from the movie Inception. I gave an already perfect track, a more electronic feel.

Mr. Zimmer,

Thank you. I am in love with the soundtrack to The Holiday. My favorite piece is Cry, a true love song that evolves taking us from sadness to pure joy with an urgency that fast is not fast enough to return to that one special person.

Thank you.

Dear Mr. Zimmer, I am a 23 year old college student near Boston and I want to thank you for your tremendous contributions to music in my life. I am a huge Bat-fan/Nolan follower and I must have listened to your scores a trillion times - the cave got me ready to go out into the world during my teen years. Incepton and its score...I cannot express to others how it makes me feel. The mathmathical breakdowns and relations between motifs...brilliant. My favorite piece of all is during Cobb and Ariadne's conversation about Mal's Totem through to his confession...a bittersweet, etheral 5-note tune moves me in a way no other music i have come across does. Thank you, I hope one day to meet you and discuss music and life...that would be one of the coolest things ever. Can't wait for TDKR! My email is homemovies539@yahoo.com - If by some chance you want to shoot me an email I would love to coorespond with you, even once!
