Dear Mr.Zimmer, My name is Lea de Melo. I am a student in Year 11 at the International School of Geneva and taking the International Baccalaureate. In Year 11, every student has to do a Personal Project which consists of taking responsibility for our own learning by researching and investigating a topic that interest us. My Personal Project will attempt to answer the following question: “How does the soundtrack of a film enhance or manipulate the emotional response of the viewer?” Mr Hand , my project supervisor and the Campus Principal, suggested I contact you because of your significant contribution to film soundtracks. I play the piano and love film scores. For the practical / creative side of my project, I will be composing the soundtrack for a scene in a film being made by the Head of Performing Arts and some students. I thought it could be interesting to combine the two and learn about how composers go about their work and inform my own composition at the same time. I have already started conducting research by seeing how music enhances the emotion in a movie scene. I have also researched film composers and I am hoping to get some of their professional advice. I was wondering if you would be willing to answer the few questions below so that I can try to understand and compare the different approaches to process and techniques composers use to create a film score. 1) What process(es) do you use in writing music for a film? Do you discuss the film first with the director? Do you read the script? Do you choose the scenes to be scored or does (s)he or is it a collaboration? Do you view the relevant scenes for your inspiration? 3) How do you choose the style of music you will adopt? Do you work thematically in terms of the whole film? 4) How do you choose the key, rhythm, tempo and dynamics? 5) How do you decide on the instrumentation? Do you believe that certain instruments stimulate or enhance certain emotions? Is the oboe, for example, a ‘plaintive’ instrument? 6) Do you think music can “cover up” a weak scene? 6) Has there been any time during which you were not inspired? How did you find inspiration? 7) What other advice can you give me? If you would prefer to do this over skype we could conduct the interview verbally but that might be more time consuming for you. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much for your time. Lea de Melo
I am a fan of the music. My only complaint is that there is a song that was in King Arther that I can not find any where. We will go Home. It is something that both me and my wife love hearing in acopello. if there is anything you can do ... #########
You have an amazing talent and I am proud to say that you are my role modle:D Please continue producing such wonderful music and I really hope that you will produce some posters of yourself soon because I would love to hang one up on my wall.
So much music, awards, credits, movies, money, team, skills etc. about this amazing man and his gifted team! But still the same old shitty inofficial website! What a pity! Is there anybody who feels responsible? I know at least 5 guys who can conjure within 10 days a website that looks appropriate/suitable for RCP-artists... Hey...and never forget the fans who make all this possible!
Hello, My name is Frances Rodriguez and I am senior president of Humanities High School located in Manhattan. I am in a drumming class that has very little but we try to manage with what we have. We are the main attraction for our christmas and spring concerts. We are 16 to 18 year old kids and our drum class is just 8 students. I believe anything is possible, as young as we may be, we aspire to some day entertain the world with music as you have. We love the enchantment of it and the joy in doing it. Today i write to you to ask for suggestions on how we can get new materials for our show. My school is struggling and we cannot afford great/new instruments. I ask of you even if you could donate one barrel it would be enough to make our show a blast. We have used paint buckets and desks and chairs and people love it because we can make it happen. I have written to Carlos Santana and last year him and his management sent us drum heads for our Christmas concert. I ask of you to please help us out in anyway possible even if its a suggestion we would greatly appreciate it. I have written to the president but unfortunately the office said that they could not act on it because i was writing on behalf of the school but now i just ask to please make my peers last year the best ever. We admire great musicians such as yourself and hope that in any way possible you can reach us. My email is FRANLRODRIGUEZ@AOL.COM,
Thanks for your time in hearing me out. Please write back with anything. Thanks again.
So I know you probably have WAY too many people trying to contact you and get you to go check out their music, and if I was in your shoes, I know I wouldn't have time to look at everyone's work. But I think you might be quite interested in some of the work I have done. I'm not a genius, nor a prodigy like many, but one thing I know I'm good at as a composer is writing a memorable theme. And I ask you to please take a mere 5 minutes of your time, check out my compositions, and let me know what you think. You could tell me it sucks if you want, and that I'm wasting your time. All in all, I just really want to know from the perspective of a professional like yourself, if I really have what it takes to make it in this business. You can hear my work at www.myspace.com/mraetzel. My email address is email@example.com. Thanks Hans, and I really hope to hear from you!

Your music brings feelings up from the inside, you have writen many incredible songs. I'm only 15 years old, and many people thinks that i'm a guy who listens to rap and all those crap who is made, but no. They looks weird, when i tell i'm listening to your and other componist's formidable work. I thank the lord, for bringing you to earth, and i thank you for making this indescribable piece of work, you've made.

Dear Mr Zimmer, I love your music! It's amazing, incredible! I'm 17 and I must think about my studies. In the future i want to be a composer like you, Mr Zimmer :) Can you tell me what kind of studies you were? Sorry for my english... Thank you :)
This is a really cool site! I never knew that Hans Zimmer was so involved in some of my favorite movies! The only thing I would suggest is perhaps improving the look of the site by using a higher quality prgram that allows you to use better themes and make the site look more accomplished.
My friend and I have one small favor. Our best friend Mislav Polegubic is celebrating his 18th birthday today on 08th July 2009 and we want to give him something special. He's huge fan of Hans Zimmer and admires the way he has been making his life achievements. While our best friend was watching Pirates of Caribian he was amased by music that was made by Hans Zimmer. Few days after he went to a music shop and he bought CD of Hans Zimmer. Today because of Hans Zimmer he's trying to make something similar to Hans Zimmer arts. What we want to ask you is there any chance that we can get a Hans Zimmer's signature and some notes or some advices to encourage him to countinue with his dream. What we want isn't expensive but it would mean a lot to him.
I just wanted to let you know that your music is the most inspiring sound I have heard throughout my entire life. The day I heard the music you and Ms. Gerrard created for Gladiator, I came very close to tears and downloaded a horde of your music from various films. . Being a dancer, I've begun to choreograph pieces to your music (of course for personal showings) and your music is just one of it own. There are no words to describe the score you have created for films such as Gladiator, Last Samurai, Black Hawk Down, Dark Knight, King Arthur, Pirates of the Caribbean and so many others. I just wanted you to know how important your music is to me and how much it influences my life.
