BTW, that track is NOT corrupted: the player is asking for "Systems Online" but the track is titled "System Online".That unreleased stuff is pretty cool. It'll bring up the total time of the OST, and it's nice to have the Reese volunteering/Reese sent back themes.Salve voglio congratularmi con il Maestro Zimmer, pietra miliare nella mia vita musicale... Come posso entrare a far parte del Team? Sono un compositore Italiano.. Un saluto a tutti i fans di Zimmer e al Maestro stesso.Excellent! Horror, has he done any horror movie scores other than "The Ring"?My Horner moments cam from space scenes. Very Apollo 13....
Absolutely no idea !Am I the only one consistently reminded of the late James Horner whenever I listen to Cornfield Chase? It makes me think, for example, of Cracking the Russian Codes from A Beautiful Mind... it's got that same "flourishy," constantly-moving instrumentation, it picks up with a kinetic piano motif, and even has a super-abrupt ending. Cornfield Chase is actually one of my favorite Zimmer cues in a while.<br><br>Hybrid, do you know if it was an intentional homage to Horner's sound?New project for Hans ! :)Yeah I see that I'm telling them.thx Hybrid!<br>unfortunately the "Systems Online" is corrupted for me
Lorne added a bunch of unreleased cues on his website ! ;)HI Hans and gang,<br><br>You are exactly the kind of hero I like - an unsung hero !<br><br>Your music is brilliant. Gladiator, Last Samurai, and my all time favourite Black Rain. The closing theme is just unforgettable, where did you get the inspiration ?Complete score?Well personally I think there's some middle ground in all that's being said... Hans isn't totally honest with this sentence. But his scores are not the "I drop you a piano theme and do the scores for me" either.Hans: "I mean, *on all of these scores* I have at one time or another played every single note. But unfortunately the story of me just sitting there by myself and writing is far less exciting and scandalous than the idea of assistants and ghostwriters."<br><br>Hence my earlier comment...Hans has most of the time written at least the basic versions of all the cues we're hearing, and his buddies, while working substantially, aren't "writing the whole score." Zimmer scores *are* Zimmer scores, even if they're not completely and totally Zimmer to the exclusion of anyone else's ideas.
People who complain about additional composers, look at other composers most of the time we don't even know at least one of theirs. They don't even give credits. For Hans' scores the names are always there. You just have to open your eyes and look. <br><br>And people who say that "Hans can't write real complex Orchestral Scores", well you really are not familiar with his work. One doesn't simply become one of the most famous composers in the world just by writing "simple" stuff.vced, I see your point, but it raised another question in my mind: if Lorne Balfe really composed (almost) the whole of Madagascar 3 or Kung Fu Panda 2... then why are they both so much more enjoyable than Home or Penguins? I think this is an evidence than Zimmer's role is a lot more important than some people would believe.I never blamed Hans when I thought credit wasn't due. Why would he put Lorne as a "producer" on the screen if he wanted to hide him. He never attempted to take credit for Pirates 1, while Monty Norman and John Barry sued themselves over decades, lol.<br><br>I guess the reason why some fans are upset is that they fall in love with the music and then once they already got attached to thought of: " This Hans Zimmer is brilliant!", they find out that not everything is Hans Zimmer. Something is Jim Dooley, or Geoff Zanelli, or Lorne Balfe. <br><br>I guess it's just badly communicated with the fans and for lack of information they start to make up conspiracy theories like how Hans tries to take world domination.<br>I mean, it really got better. <br>Since anyone barely buys a CD today no one can open a booklet and see who else worked on the score. For chappie he put Steve and Andrew on the front cover.<br>Great move if only 2 people helped him out, but how about 7 people? Guess that would look a bit crowded then. :P (And recently they added credits for some scores on spotify.)<br>I think he could reach most people through facebook if he sometimes posts stuff like:"Hey, check out some music by Lorne Balfe, he worked with me on TDKR."<br><br>Sorry for the wall of text but I wanted to write this for a long time. :)<br><br>BAM. The man has spoken.Hans was interviewed by his daughter recently...<br><br>Zoe : "Does it piss you off when people question the way the studio works? In terms of having people write for you—you know, when it’s made out to be Hans Zimmer’s Musical Sweatshop?"<br><br>Hans : "Well,they can’t have it both ways. Because on the one hand I get knocked for “sounding the same,” which of course doesn’t actually make any sense—look at the films I did with Ridley [Scott], and that’s just one filmmaker: Thelma & Louise doesn’t sound anything like Gladiator, which doesn’t sound anything like Black Hawk Down, which doesn’t sound anything like Hannibal, which doesn’t sound anything like Black Rain, which doesn’t sound anything like Matchstick Men…"<br><br>Zoe : "I really liked Matchstick Men."<br><br>Hans : "So did I, but I think we were the only ones. So anyway, on the one hand there’s obviously a very strong imprint in the architecture of the studio, and on the other hand… I mean, you already know all of this. I write these pieces and they’re very complete, everything’s done on them—the orchestration, everything. But like everybody, I need assistants. I’m the architect, but I need a couple of bricklayers, y’know? Do you think Michelangelo painted every square inch of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel? Probably not—it would have killed him if he had to do it all by himself!"<br><br>Zoe : "Fair enough. So do you think people who make those assumptions are just uninformed about the system? Because assisting and writing additional music is basically how you get your foot in the door, right?"<br><br>Hans : "Well, yes and no. It didn’t really used to be like that. When I got to Hollywood it was slightly different. The studios had orchestrators and arrangers on staff, and they never really got credit for anything. They were just “Backroom Boys.” So now I really do fight for credits for people, even really small credits. It’s important to me that people get to participate, and that they get credit and that they are visible, so I really do fight fort hem. They might not be the architects, but it’s still their time that they give me, that they give to these projects."<br><br>Zoe : "Interstellar was all you though, wasn’t it?"<br><br>Hans : "All me. Interstellar nobody got to write a single note on other than me. And although a lot of musicians played on it, one of the things we tried to preserve was the singularity of my touch and my vision, and literally me playing every note. I mean, on all of these scores I have at one time or another played every single note. But unfortunately the story of me just sitting there by myself and writing is far less exciting and scandalous than the idea of assistants and ghostwriters."<br><br>:D

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
I am a 17 year old girl who lives in Reno, NV. I know how unlikely that it is that this will receive any individual attention, but I could not stop myself from telling you how much your music has changed my life. Its powerful and raw, full of so much emotion. When I was a kid I used to watch movies over and over just to listen to the music. Now I actually have the majority of your soundtracks on my ipod. When I found this site I was ecstatic and thrilled like the band kid I am that there was a place where it all was. It is put together simply and easy to figure out. Basically, I just wanted to say thank you for bringing the wonders of your music into the light for all to hear.
Lindsey

These smart ideas additionally served like a fantastic way to comprehend other people online have a similar dreams just like my personal own to find out somewhat more with reference to this condition. I'm certain there are several more enjoyable instances in the future for folks who scan your forum post.

Hello Hans,

I would like to get your permission to use your transformers 2 -Arrival to Earth as the BG sound of my project - this is no commertial project and I'm not getting any prophets of it.

I know that this is may not be the site to ask for this, but I don't know where else to do it.

thanks a lot,

Wow had no idea he had done some of the music that you listed. Thanks for that info. The first time I noticed him was on the soundtrack for Crimson Tide. Every since then when I really like the music in a movie I look to see if it was him and I'm not surprised when I love the music and his name rolls up the screen.. Truly talented thanks for bringing this website about a gifted, gifted composer...

Thank you for choosing a career path that has brought so much joy, energy and emotion to so many people. In January, when days are short and life drags on, my players are always filled with various discs from POTC. Other scores return to their rightful places in Spring, Summer and Fall. Your music moves with the tides of my life. Thank you.

Plenty of 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.

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.
