My one hope is that this doesn't mean Chris Nolan will be tying Zimmer's hands behind his back for future scores. If he wants to do that here, okay. I can get over one score. But I hope Nolan doesn't keep calling for this non-melodic approach.That was one of my favorites, wish it was on the OST.Yeah, was also looking for that track.Nolan's liner notes, which explains a lot on the score :<br><br>"British people are raised on the story of Dunkirk. The events of the evacuation are sacred ground, not to be ventured onto without great care. Daunting for a filmmaker. But the things that place Dunkirk so firmly at the heart of a nation's self-image are the very qualities that make it one of the greatest stories in human history. Irresistible to a filmmaker.<br><br>This film required a remarkable creative team, and Hans Zimmer, as well as having been a valued member in the past, knows how to assemble his own great team. From our first meeting, where I described to the percussionist, Satnam Ramgotra, the unusual rhythmic structure of the script and how it needed to be amplified by the music, through the finishing touches applied by Lorne Balfe during our last weeks of mixing, the importance of teamwork was paramount. The process nicely echoed the circumstances of the events we were trying to honour- a triumph of communal effort, not individual heroism.<br><br>When I called Hans one night with a one word suggestion- "Nimrod", I wasn't sure he'd accept experimenting with an existing theme for the climax of the film. To my surprise, he knew just who to call to achieve the deconstruction of Elgar's monumental theme, a theme as beloved to the English as Dunkirk itself, often played at ceremonial occasions and funerals. It's a theme which (I never admitted to Hans) I am incapable of hearing without feeling the surprising weight of my father's coffin on my shoulder. Hans brought in Benjamin Wallfisch, who, in collaboration with the great music editor Alex Gibson and myself, fashioned a modern reworking that grows out of the sights and sounds of the movie- tapping the original's resonances without feeling unearned. Hans's brass accents complete the piece's power to move without sentimentalizing.<br><br>Hans went on to incorporate Elgar's theme elsewhere in the score, a score that on this album has been divided into cues, but which in the film plays as one long piece with a unifying and complex rhythmic and tonal structure. The structure of the screenplay itself builds upon the shepherd tone concepts I first explored with composer David Julyan in the soundtrack for "The Prestige", but here Zimmer's team (in particular Andy Page and Andrew Kawczynski) and I added a whole new rhythmical structure. This can't be fully represented on the album, but in the film it is able to integrate sound effects and even story structure into the very fabric of the music in a new and unique manner.<br><br>The rigid structure, to which we adamntly stuck, at times proved frustrating for the musicians, but they persevered and produced extraordinary cues based on unusual solutions (such as a recording of my watch that Hans and his team adapted into many different rhythmic voices). The disciplined procedural approach stopped the music for "Dunkirk" from ever resorting to arbitrary cinematic emotionalism, something Hans and I always felt was vital, given the inherent emotional heft of the real life events. This has been a long and hard journey, but I am proud of the final results, and hope that you will share my appreciation for the talent of the artists who worked so hard for so long on this score.<br><br>CHRISTOPHER NOLANI don't think emotion and melodies = Oscar worthy. Dunkirk's score fits in with the movie far better than Chappie.
Saw the film again last night and there are a ton of great cues missing, especially from the first half of the film. It's a crime the cue when they carry the stretcher onto the ship wasn't included.The answer is: Christopher Nolan ;-)It doesn't crossfade as much as, say, The Dark Knight Rises or Inception, but there is  very rarely dead air. I haven't listened enough times to determine when it does and doesn't crossfade, but the tracks are, at least, very closely edited together.I Love Hans' stuff but this score didn't really do it for me. I don't see how people are repping this as Oscar worthy but trash something like CHAPPiEs score, something with actual emotion and melodies.This soundtrack will win an oscar . It's great to see Balfe back with Zimmer. Dream team
Does anyone know whether the cd version actually has the cues crossfading into each other? Since in the film the score plays almost as an entire cue, it would have made sense if they did that. It sounds like some cues in the digital version end kind of awkwardly, like 'Impulse' and 'Home'. These cues fade out while there still seems to be some instrumentation progression going on. Hence the crossfade thought...Oooh credits. I'm guessing from these it's going to be disqualified from entering Oscar nominations because<br>1. Use of a classical musical piece throughout<br>2. More than one guy is credited.<br><br>Anyway, that's how Hans always liked, crediting everyone.I have to agree on the soundtrack being mostly unlistenable...<br><br>This is nothing like Inception, or even Interstellar.<br><br>I seriously doubt there's going to be a big stink made about any track from this score the likes of "No Time For Caution" back in 14...<br><br>I tried...I tried real hard to find something to keep me interested in this score, but I personally couldn't find anything. Most of it is tension building noise. I'm sure it's great within the film, but outside the film? Not so much.<br><br>I guess Zimmer is on "retirement mode" now...He's slowing down and not wanting to produce the rockin stuff that he used to...I can't blame him, but still...This score sounds like a total experiment.Sorry bud...<br><br>Its not.Hi everyone, does anyone know the name of the music in the Dunkirk Trailer 1 at 01:30? It doesn't not seem to be in the score, I'm assuming it's not in the movie, I'm going to see it Sunday. If anyone knows the music or where to find it, please Comment, thanks!
Tina had a lot of work to do here!Each time I listen to "The Oil," I'm convinced it can't get any louder and larger, but it does. If you don't look at the track time, you're just constantly thinking it's about to end, and yet it somehow continues to up the ante until you almost can't handle anymore!I was on three concerts so far and just at the one at Frankfurt some band members came down from the stage after the concert. I didn'f got a autograph but I did photos with nile marr and nick glennie smith. But if you would ask some of the band members I am sure they will say "ok perhaps I can arrange it" would try it this way :)I really like it. It's a clever score that sounds like it had an awful lot of thought put into it.A fanmade.<br><br>Hybrid probably took the track from here because the guy behind the channel was stating that it was original without being. Leaving the link here would only give him more audience.

Dear Hans Zimmer, dear Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to tell you that in the upcoming Symphonic Speed Metal release of Final Chapter Hans Zimmer will be honorably mentioned in the Thanks and Credit list. Moreover, I would be grateful if you, Hans, could comment on the composition for the Final Chapter promotion video on facebook.com/finalchapterheavymetal, please, because I would like to hear what a professional composer would say. At the moment my favorite compositions from you. Hans, are Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator, King Arthur and The Da Vinci Code to mention some of them. I would like to thank you for having replied to my question on facebook not so long ago concerning the usage of samples.
Kind regards, Andreas Wimmer

I noticed a lot of composers don't have their own webpages. I am a MFA student in composing. As such, big companies such as DreamWorks and Universal don't necessarily offer internships in this field. Do composers ever offer internships or apprenticeships?

Hello.

Do any of you have direct contact with Mr. Zimmer?

I need to know if there's a possibility that if I were to offer my left arm as a means of trade - whereupon receiving the arm, in pristine condition, of course, Mr. Zimmer would have the arm surgically grafted to his chest (or a more conveniently located area; one that would aid him in his compositions) - in hopes that I might be able to visit his amazing-looking (I'm sure it's amazing, but I've only ever seen it in photographs and videos) studio?

I don't eat much. I don't take up much space. Furthermore, and probably best of all, I would be generously quiet. The amount of medications that I would be on after such a traumatic, elective-surgery would see to that. Lastly, in such a heavily sedated state, I may agree to a full cavity search to reassure everyone involved that I do not have any recording devices - this should clear me of any intent with malicious motive.

Please let me know.

PS: If Mr. Zimmer is not interested in my arm I may be willing to offer my foot, but the terms may need to be renegotiated.

Thank you for your time.

Mr. Hans admiring your work, I can not agree with the music at the beginning of the movie "Batman Begins," when Batman goes to prison and goes to the mountains. On mine, humble opinion, there must be more simple sound scheme.

I am writer and producer and work as a pastor in the reformed church of Basel, Switzerland. We will produce a "Night of Faith" here in Basel in 2013. Nina Hagen is there and many others, too. I am responsible for a concert called "Prayers" with orchestra, solists and choir. We will sing prayers from musicals, operas etc. I am looking for the complete orchestra notes including choir and solos of "There can be miracles" from Prince of Egypt. But I can't find it. Where can we buy it? Anyone any idea?
Thanks a lot

Hello team, I have a dilemma and the only was I saw fit to resolve it was to contact as close to Zimmer as possible..

I'm a member of the Henry Brass Band in Stockbridge, GA, USA and we're looking for contemporary music to perform on a professional level. I thought about the Crysis 2 original soundtrack and the heavy brass involved in the songs.

Where could I possibly get a copy of the score for any of the songs, purchasing or without compensation?

Please keep in mind I'm not trying to solicit or trade, I only wish to either retrieve knowledge about how this works, and/or any of the scores.

Thanks,
Ryan

Hallo Herr Zimmer,
ich weiß, daß die Chancen null-komma-eins stehen sie persönlich an die Tastatur oder ans Telefon zu bekommen, aber ich probiere es doch einmal aus als Landsmann. Mein Name ist Hanjo Gäbler und ich bin seid ich Teenager bin ein großer Fan Ihrer Musik. Ich bin Berufsmusiker seid ich 19 Jahre alt bin und jetzt quasi mit 34 auch in der Filmmusik angekommen. Ich würde Sie gern einmal um Gehör bitten und ein bis zwei Fragen stellen. Hätten Sie unwarscheinlicher Weise einmal Zeit für mich? Nur 2-3 Minuten?
mit freundlichen Grüßen, Ihr Hanjo Gäbler
