I am your big time fan and yot are my all time favourite music director. Recently I have seen your latest movie Inception and I like it very much, the music is better than the movie. Please continue with great music.
Hello Remote Control Productions (email@example.com)
Well, tonight my wife and I went to see "Inception". We left with the following: 1. The music was totally OVER PRODUCED. What I mean by that is; "Sometimes LESS IS MORE". I mean, their were numerous scenes where it was so distracting, so over-bearing... it was stupid.
2.Numerous scenes should not have has any music at all, thus making the actors of the moment more dramatic and believable. We asked ourselves... "is this for real"?
2. We loved Hans score/composition for "The Last Samurai"... but felt that much of the score to "Inception" was just a continuation of the same. Sure, composers have styles, but this was ridiculous. It was so predictable after the first 30 minutes... we just wanted it to go away.
3. The dub stage audio mixers must have been on Crack. It was so difficult to hear dialog because the pounding music score was "Over The Top"- literally. We thought we went to see a movie, it appears we went to a lesson in sound sampling and drowning orchestra. C'mon Hans, you can do better.
Knowing that this post will most likely never make to public viewing... We'll blog it elsewhere as to inform future movie go-ers to at the very least: "Buy Ear Plugs".
Sorry Hans, but this time you MISSED IT. Go back to the Drawing Board. Remember, it is a FILM your writing/scoring for, not testament to your own skills.
Hallo Mr.Zimmer...I do not know if you will ever read my mail, but i wanted to write it for you...I am an 18 Greek boy and i always admired your music-scores and in general all film scores...I have already finished my music studies with an A degree in piano studies, and i also compose my own orchestral scores. People in my country, teachers everywhere in greece say that i am really good, almost a genius...I never believed them. I mean i know I have some perfect fresh ideas and i know that i am composing for a huge orchestra even though noone tought me how(i studied only music harmony and chorus composition)...And even if i believe them, how can I in this country show my talent? Plenty of my music sheets, My 'Rhapsody for a dream' for a huge orchestra, chorus and piano, my piano studies, soundtracks for films and whole new ideas which i do not write them, beacause like the others will end up on my desk waiting to be played for ages...And i speak to you Mr.Zimmer beacause i do not know to whom i may speak...Who can advise me what to do??...you are one of my music idols, talented, successfull, your dream is complete! When will my dream come true?! I know you are to busy to meddle with problems like my one...but you could help me. And remember how much i want to make this dream a reality but i can not alone...Thanks Mr.Zimmer if you read this...or any other reader...And if you could help in someway please contact me...my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org... ......a mortal teenage boy from Athens,greece...thanks
I firstly would like to say a couple of things about me, so that you can hopefully have a better understanding of my comments. I am an aspiring Director in LA, even if this is the worst time since the great depression to be in this industry. I've done a few small projects here and there and though I've grown up with movies my whole life (hence, the profession choice) it wasn't until film school that I started to make a list of all of my favorite film score composers. I began listening to all kinds of soundtracks and it was an interesting journey.
I started out the same way as at least 80% of people out there, saying that "John Williams was the best! Come on, Star Wars, Superman, Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones, and who can say that the soundtrack for Jurassic Park wasn't one of the best soundtracks of all time!" John Williams is a brilliant composer and is definitely one of the greatest of all time, but after leaving the shallow end of the "composer pool", I noticed that I was a big fan of Danny Elfman, (Batman, Edward Scissor-hands, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.) James Horner, (Titanic, Avatar, Aliens, Braveheart,etc.), Jerry Goldsmith (Rudy, Star Trek, Alien, etc.) and many more big names. BUT, I found myself coming back to one composer over and over again.
To sit here and just type in the list of great soundtracks would be pointless, since you can easily find it on IMDb (as well as myself, but not worth your time) or anywhere else on the internet, but I am just going to mention a few. There have been at least a 2-3 dozen soundtracks that have been incredible throughout Mr. Zimmer’s filmography, but it was the "Gladiator" soundtrack that stopped me. That soundtrack became an integral part of the way I thought about the movie making process as a Director. It opened a flood door of trying to collect, listen, and compare as many Hans Zimmer soundtracks as I could. The next phase was with the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks. I found the 3rd movie's soundtrack (At World’s End) as the best and it joined "Gladiator" atop to list. Finally, "The Last Samurai". This soundtrack was innovative and seemed like Mr. Zimmer was “out of his element”, so to speak, but found the challenge of creating music of a different culture new and exciting and it came across very much in the writing.
The reason I have Mr. Zimmer at the very top of my “Favorite Composers of All Time List”, isn’t because he’s mainstream and popular, and it isn’t because he keeps getting teamed with brilliant Directors (even though he is); it IS because I understand that he is unbelievably talented and has a way of making the music he scores come to life. Sure people say that all the time, “the music is supposed to be that way dummy!” It’s more than that with his music. People don’t fully appreciate film scores. You can tell me that you “love it and that it’s amazing” until you’re blue in the face, and I may agree with you; however, until you can comprehend WHY the music FEELS the way it does, EXPRESSES the EMOTION the way it does; and until you can grasp the concept, that someone (namely Mr. Zimmer) has been able to take the same air we breathe, capture it, mold it into tiny notes on a page, then translate these notes with the addition of dynamics, pitch, tone, resonance, and rhythm, into sounds that vibrate that tiny little bone inside your ear, setting off millions of synapses that then influence the chemical make-up of your brain, altering your state of mind and perception until you FEEL your mood start to fall into a trance strikingly similar to the way a cobra dances to the Snake Charmer’s flute. THEN, I’ll know that you understand the abilities, power, and downright magic that Mr. Zimmer possesses.
With all finally being said, I only wish to thank you Mr. Zimmer for the incredible work you do. For the brilliant and masterful way you have influenced how a story is told. Lastly, for the way your music has allowed not only the story, but life itself to enhance the way we perceive the world around us. I can only hope to have the privilege to work with you one day. Thank you.
I felt so compelled to look this site up to write some sort of feedback. The music for Inception (particularly 'Time' ) is the most beautiful music I have ever listened to. I am practically speechless as to describe the beauty in this music, it cannot be compared.
You, Mr. Hans Zimmerman, are the soul of these motion pictures, especially the dark knight and inception. You are a modern day genius, an inspiration, a beautiful mind. I just hope your at peace and not afflicted like do many great creative souls from mankinds history. Thank you for sharing your gifts.

Hans, I'm using a translator to write, please excuse if there are grammatical errors. I have 15 years and when I saw the film Spirit was fascinated with your music. I started searching all your discography, and further, that film (with music) made me feel new things: love of horses (now I practice riding), passion for music (I play the piano) and a taste for film music. Frankly, I consider you a genius, and thank you for what you do, because otherwise I would have loved your music would never be doing so many things that I'm happy. I want you know, sure I'm not the only person that improve lives, and wanted you to know, because as an artist, you might like to see than people changed with your work. I send a big welcome, and sincerely I would contact you by e-mail, but I know that is impossible with the artists. I hope you keep writing more, delighting your audience. Mailén.
I'm sure you've heard enough people tell you what an amazing job you've done composing music that is both uplifting and inspiring. I just wanted to say as a young filmmaker, your music from Dark Knight and Inception has inspired me to write both screenplay and music.
There is something in your music that expresses some of the deepest of human emotion and every time I listen to it, it touches my soul. I think "Old Souls" from Inception is your best piece yet followed closely by "Lasiurus" from Batman Begins.
My hope is that one day, when I'm in Hollywood, I will get to work with you. Setting your music to one of my films would be an honor, sir.
I know you're a very busy guy, but I would love to send you a copy of my screenplay for my short film. My email is email@example.com. Even if I don't hear back from you, please continue to bring inspiration to the world with your music.
Hello Hans, my name is Annabelle Morison, but you can just call me Annabelle. I am a blind young woman who is a sound designer, Audio Engineer, Producer, Singer, and Songwriter, and I love to make virtual instruments and sample libraries of all kinds. I'm especially into guitars, and I want to send you an Email with a question I have for you. Please feel free to Email me at any time, as I check my Emails several times each day. Thank you so much, Annabelle firstname.lastname@example.org
ich hoffe dieser Eintrag erreicht Sie. Als erstes vielen Dank für Ihre Music sie berührt und hat sehr viel Klasse nur weiter so, wir sind Stolz auf Sie. Als zweites bringe ich den Wunsch vieler Soldaten der Bundeswehr zum Ausdruck. Ein eigenes Lied für die gefallenen Kameraden in Afgahnistan zu Komponieren. Ich kann mir vorstellen das es bei Ihnen unmöglich ist zweck Ihrer Termine. Jedoch will ich es nicht unversucht lassen. Mit Kameradschaftlichen Grüßen Stabsunteroffizier ND
I am a graduate student studying Music Technology with an emphasis in Electronic Composition. I want to become a composer for films and video games. I have been a huge fan of your music ever since The Lion King, when I was growing old enough to appreciate film music =) You are incredibly talented! Your music makes each film so much more powerful. It would be an honor to have a chance to intern or work with you. I am also interested in any general advice you have about getting started in the music business. I would be more than happy to send you a résumé and/or some samples of my music. My email address is email@example.com. I know you are extremely busy, but I would be ecstatic to hear from you!
Mr. Zimmer, I promised my sister named Jessica Jimenez I wouldn't but she is a fourteen year old girl who is striving to be more like you. She is constanally trying to go to one of your concerts, but fails to do so. At the moment she is learning to play the guitar, and has picked up the flute, piano and is very good at making her own notes. I want to say thank you very much because without you as her rolemodel she'd be lost. Her words to me are that one day she'll meet and train with you...the best! Thank you and have a wonderful day! :) Becca

Dr Mr.Zimmer I watched the movie Madagascar 2 yesterday and noticed that there were a lot of instrumental songs not on the soundtrack? Are these non commercial songs or what? are they on a different soundtrack?

I've loved movies since I was born and your scores are truely the essence of most remarkable and unforgettable scenes. You own a real gift. When I close my eyes and listen to your work I feel all emotions one could feel. I have recorded many of them and they give me stregth to wake up every day. They've helped me through tough times.
