@vced:<br>"The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me."<br><br>Interesting you impress upon this point with this score.  Conversely, like Hybrid cites, a contract is a contract.  Let us not pretend that Hans kicks and shoves his collaborators -- writers, arrangers, etc -- into a closet never to be mentioned or heard from again.  Essentially everything he does is a collaboration, and credited so appropriately, minus an example or so by my observations.<br><br>I don't criticize Harry or Powell every time the liner notes from a score don't specifically praise Hans.<br><br>Who knows @ the dynamics, influence, inspiration, success of a given cue?  Those that work on it.  From the idea, to the last note.<br><br>  <br><br>Love the track, Hybrid!>I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...<br><br>Now you got me curious..."I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him"<br><br>LOL. How funny is this statement. Just can't stop laughing. Ignorance is bliss.Hans Zimmer...<br>thank you for all of your works. I wrote many pieces which are inspired by your music. Also other Amateur-componists. Hope you will continue your fantastic work for many years.
Yep... One more Lorne ! Well that one's quite "old"... But one more ! lolI'm not in Sony, Warner or Columbia team to be able to tell that.Hi Damien.<br><br>Will the expanded soundtrack be made available for download at all?  Either free, or by purchasing.<br><br>I'd love to get a copy of the music in the expanded soundtrack, but this simply doesn't appear to be available. :(<br><br>Please advise."More Cannons" is Bowell/Palfe. What the weighting is, I don't know, though I'd be inclined to think something like 70-30. Bits of Home sounding like it isn't all that convincing an argument, since a composer doesn't need only to rip off his own repertoire ;) I'm more convinced by the Megamind similarity towards the end of that track.Palfe? haha... btw Edmund, do you still think "More Cannons" is Powell. I'm pretty sure I hear bits of it in Lorne's (excellent, btw) "Home" score!
It's official enough for me ! ;)Except that was Powell himself doing Powell in KFP 2 (well, Powell and Palfe). ;)Don't think Hans can't do anything and needs people to do so... I think it was valid 25 years ago when Shirley Walker was orchestrating & arranging his scores...<br><br>But now, not really, he can do anything... He doesn't use add. composer because he HAS to, but because he wants to. Most of the times he starts the cues, gives direction and leads his guys where he wants them to go, and always has the final say...<br><br>I'll take an example, Rush... If you check the cuesheet, it's quite a mess, you basically have 0 cue with Hans alone... And yet he wrote most the themes to picture this time, with Ron Howard & Peter Morgan in the room. No theme suites... Then the guys just arranged slightly & added stuff... But a lot of the cues are him in the first place...No official source yet, but both Dan Goldwasser and Ford A. Thaxton have confirmed it on Maintitles and FSM respectively.Exactly, ghostwriting is very common in the industry. At least his collaborators get credited here.<br><br>"Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes."<br><br>You're making it seem as if he was some sort of second rate composer, probably unintentionally, but let's not forget that he wrote Gladiator, Lion King and Prince of Egypt almost all on his own and those are considered film score classics. The first one even made it's way into many contemporary classical selections. <br><br>It's true that he took a step back in the 2000s focusing more on his role as a producer and this one is probably the prime example. However, his theme suites, especially for potc, are already a very good representation of the score's memorable parts and I'm sure the result wouldn't be very different if he did everything by himself.<br><br>And what exactly do mean by "his limitations"? You seem pretty new to Zimmer's music. He can do Powell as well if necessary as shown in Kung Fu Panda 2.
Well if you take the cue sheet every composer is credited for every cue on this score...<br><br>The name on the film credit is a contract.<br><br><br>I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...Great score. But its a pity the credited composer wrote almost none of it. <br><br>I know it's a tired debate, but I don't know how people here are so comfortable with the fact he takes full compositional credit for scores like this, Madagascars etc. <br><br>Scores like this you can't even earnestly say he wrote the themes like with Pirates. At least there the core of the material is coming from him. Here, the giddy up theme is Lorne, the villain theme and Homer suite are Jackman, the Lisa theme is Alti, etc. etc. Even the main theme arrangement isn't his. <br><br>I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him, that's not the problem. Those aren't his strengths, it's not a big deal. Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes. He's also good at organising his talent. The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me.There's no news on that at all. Not on Google or IMDb. What's your source?Powell's gonna have longer than 5 five weeks now, movie just got pushed back to October.I see now why they got Lorne to score Terminator, the guy's friggin' unstoppable.

Wanted to say...King Arthur's soundtrack is, in my opinion, one of your best works. Powerful, full of depth, incredible!! It gave me chills. Love it.
Great great job.

Hi

I came to the site because I admire your music so much. I bought The Pacific soundtrack and find that the music still evinces the sadness and grandeur of that series. Music can access the emotions so quickly and profoundly - if it's done right!

I guess you don't need the admiring comments of total strangers, but I have enjoyed putting down these remarks.

Thanks for the wonderful music.

Thank you for the "Holiday" soundtrack. I just went through chemotherapy for breast cancer and I was getting ready to have a CT scan so I can start radiation this morning. No worries, they caught it early :-). But getting back to the soundtrack. It is in my top 3 movies so naturally I LOVE the soundtrack. I get panic attacks so the thought of the CT scan was almost paralyzing. But before I went in today I played "Anything Can Happen" and "Definitely Unexpected" on my iPod and felt calm and relaxed and did not have an episode. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me through this. I am positive and inspired because of your music.

Dear Hans,

If this is your official site - I just wanted to say thank you. For creating such inspiring music, for giving aural life to so many great movies. Not that your music require any visual experience to give them substance. Each and every track you produce is a work of art in its own right. They give me goosebumps, and that is my measure of greatness.

Thanks
Dane

Sir, you have a wonderful gift of composing music and whenever I hear any of your pieces it amazes me how good you are. In this age of new pop and hip hop it's amazing to see that one man has decided to show us what real music is.

I'm a fan of Hans Zimmer and his music. I don't know if you guys have real contact with him, but if you do please let him know this. In Chile, my country, there is a television serie called "Primera dama"... it sucks. It aired on "canal 13" (channel 13) around 8 pm, the story is crap but what I hate most is that they use Zimmer's music on the show, like from "modern warfare 2", "the dark knight" and others. I'm pretty sure they don't pay for copyrights.
Congrats on the webpage, it's very good.

Dear Hans, and the whole team!

I would like to give all of you a really big R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
I had know at the Batman Begins that you are some kinda masterpiece-generator machine, but at the TDK and now, the Inception OST…

I have to say: you made my life better with your amazing, fascinating, dark, cold, strong, genius, new and (in some part, like the Joker themes) experimental music. That is the real music. Really, thank you. Oh, and of course, you made all of the movies better. When in the TDK, at the „Then you’re gonna love me” scene… Man, that’s incredible!

I really don’t know what to say, you gave me some much emmotions. I know The Dark Knight soundtrack like my own hand. Thank you.

All of you.

Respect. You are really artists.

Benjámin Terdik, from Hungary

Hans Zimmer, hows it going. My name is Marque, upcoming actor/screenwriter. Thelma and Louise, best soundtrack ever. I'm writing a script something like that and when its done, I would like a theme song like "Thunderbird". Themes can make the movie and the actors, it was the theme that "made Brad Pitt" he owes you big time.zachdaemon@live.com

Hidden in Plain Sight reply Replies: 0 || 2010-09-13 00:00:00
One may only experience the sublimely beautiful nature of the ugly truth, when one chooses to fully perceive & accept the blinding beauty which attracts us to lies. Hans scores remind me of what my brain may feel like in the minutes or seconds before a plane crashes into the ground. Not fear, but sensory overload, I think many times it detracts from the secret truths, hidden in plain sight in these films. IE Titanic, The Aviator, The Departed, Blood Diamond, Shutter Island, Inception, BM Begins, BM Dark Knight, to name a few of my favorite. (Not all Zimmer Scores, but they all tell a linear tale of super secret conspiracy)
