Where do I look?Obviously not. Harry Gregson-Williams got this credit for multiple David Buckley's soundtrackWhat's with the massive "score produced by" credit? I thought only Hans gets those? :PThe full OST is out already if you know where to look.I love the las few minutes of the sample. Anyone know how long till the actual release of the track?
Hallo und danke für das tolle Konzert in Köln! <br>Der Sound war phantastisch und auch der LJ hat hat ganze Arbeit geleistet - einziger Wermutstropfen war, daß ich mich sehr über einen persönlichen Kontakt bei einer Signierstunde gefreut hätte, Ihre Signatur hätte sich sicher auf dem ein oder anderen Booklet sehr wohl gefühlt neben der von Lisa. Ich freue mich auf alles weitere aus Ihrer Feder und hoffe auf künftige Konzerte. MfG, TobiasComplete Score leaked<br>That's it!! Thanks a lot, Edmund.<br><br>(I wasn't able to hear what he said when he introduced the track)<br><br>Hybrid, do you have any news regarding the release of the Wembley show recording? My fear is they finally realized it'd be wiser to release it AFTER the tour, so we'd have to wait until mid-June... so I really hope I'm wrong!Haha Edmund you make me really curious! Just managed to get my hand on A League of their own, I'll let you know what I think!<br><br>As for K2, I can't find it anywhere. It's not on iTunes (in Europe at least), it's not for download on amazon, nowhere at all. If you have a tip, please let me know :-)
Even Zimmer kind of got his start off the back of Stanley Meyers, admittedly. It's how he nabbed all those little British drama movies in the late 80s like My Beautiful Launderette and The Fruit Machine. But yeah, Junkie XL is a totally different story.<br><br>Dude, A League of Their Own will blow your mind. It's like absolutely nothing else in Zimmer's career - okay, the dramatic material and themes sound like him, but the game music is this crazy, complex, energetic big-band jazz stuff which is just so much fun to listen to. Think The Incredibles on steroids. It's my favorite early Zimmer score!As I understand it, the filmmakers pushed hard to get a more contemporary sound to the score, and while Basil Poledouris is no slouch at that kind of thing (just listen to his Wind score, which is amazing), I guess they ultimately ended up "soft rejecting" what he wrote and got Zimmer to come in and stop the gaps. I've never seen the movie, but from what I've read, it uses portions of both scores; mostly Poledouris for the themes and Zimmer for the action music.<br><br>It certainly sounds like a weird situation!<br><br>(Oh, and by the way, the sequel score for White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf, an early-career effort by John Debney, is really good! Better than either the Poledouris or the Zimmer.)I guess the MV formula worked really well for those guys... Powell, Mancina, HGW, what a dream team! But in Zimmer's case I find it even more impressive, because he started the whole thing himself, without this kind of studio to get him visibility (as far as I know, at least).<br><br>As for Junkie XL... for reasons you probably know, I think he's a totally different story (and with much less merits).<br><br>Next ones I've got to discover: K2 and A League of their own. As you probably guessed, I'm back in full fanboy-mode, I'm tired of waiting for new HZ releases and for the final concert, so I'm digging into the past! :-pUnless they played something different in Munich than in Berlin, it was "You're So Cool" from True Romance.I attended the concert in Munich. It was great! Can anyone tell me the name of the cheerful tune which started the second half of the concert? I don't think it was from any film, but was from Hans's school days.<br>Many Thanks!<br>
So what is the story with this score. Was Hans brought in to save the day here? Did they leave Basils name because of his main theme?Agreed. "Serpent Riders" from the soundtrack album sounds like Soule all over the place btw. A lot of today's film scores can't live up to that if you ask me.<br>Guild Wars 2 remains his best solo effort imo. Haven't got around to playing skyrim much, though the main theme is goosebumps-worthy.There's quite a few, really. I mean, David Arnold totally came out of nowhere in the mid-90s (and has since returned to nowhere, sadly). Danny Elfman's rise around the same time as Zimmer's was just as meteoric.<br><br>I'm not actually so sure about HGW, for that matter. He didn't get any really big assignments on his own until arguably Spy Game in 2001; he did a lot of collaborative work before then but usually played second fiddle to someone else (Rabin or Powell or Hans himself). Mark Mancina might be a better example for MV, coming out of pretty much nowhere to do a huge action movie like Speed. Or even Powell himself: Face/Off is a hell of a big movie to debut on!HGW climbed quite fast too ! ;)<br><br>Oh btw speaking of K2, I want to set something straight. HZ's score for that one was done in 1992. The film originally came out in 1991 with the first score and it was decided to rescore it for Europe (and not the other way around). So Hans did it with Nick, who only joined Media Ventures in 1992 (and his first work was on Toys).For me, the most immersive game score (not best, necessarily...but the one that never fails to IMMEDIATELY transport me into another world) is Skyrim by Jeremy Soule. Mists of Pandaria (on which Soule was one of the composers) gets serious points from me simply because parts of it sound a loooooot like Skyrim, including the "Valley of the Four Winds" track you mention!

Hans

Meine Duetsch is seer shlect, so in English.

As a life long enthusiast of sea chanties and old songs on nautical themes, I must say I am stunned by the beauty of "Jolly Sailor Bold" from the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack. When I saw the movie, I though to myself 'How have I missed this song among all the traditional songs of the sea I have heard?' I assumed it was of folk song a couple of centuries old. I was so surprised to find out it is a modern composition! I was further surprised to find out the composer isn't even a native speaker of English.

You crafted a work of art that sounds straight out of some waterfront of the early 19th century. Your choice of archaic turns of phrase, the slightly awkward fit of some of the words to the meter of the tune, and the imperfect transitions in a couple of verses give it the feel of a song that existed in several slightly different versions that periodically got recombined by different singers and passed on orally to new performers over many years.

I am curious to know how you came to be so familiar with traditional English songs of sailors and the sea. I am equally curious why the song is not included in the soundtrack CD from Pirates. I, for one, would buy it instantly if available. And given the number of places on the net that I found with people asking where to get the lyrics, recording of the song, and such, I think someone made a big mistake leaving it off the CD.

To give some sense of the level of interest, I found on YouTube about a dozen different videos of people who had found the lyrics and recorded the song themselves, a cappella, accompanied by classical harp, piano, you name it. The movie has been open less than a week. Clearly your work has touched a chord among music lovers. It is one form of popularity to find many pirated copies of a recorded song on the net - it is something very different to find so many individuals recording themselves singing it in so short a time.

This song is nothing short of a work of genius. Thank you for creating it.

Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer

In der Hoffnung dass Sie dieses hier lesen, möchten wir Ihnen kurz unser Projekt vorstellen. Wir drehen einen Dokumentarfilm über Unwetter in der Schweiz und Europa. Dazu gehören auch Klimawandel und vieles mehr.

Unsere Frage an Sie wäre nun: Dürfen wir ein paar Teile aus einigen Soundtracks für unsere Filmmusik verwenden? Ihr Name wird im Film erwähnt. Ersterer ist der von Madagaskar.

Unsere Kontaktmail lautet: d.kurz@scvswitzerland.ch

Vielen dank!

Hallo Herr Zimmer :)
Ich schreibe Ihnen hier in der Hoffnung, dass sie das lesen. Ich habe seit zwei Jahren einen Freund, der eine große Leidenschaft für Filmmusik hat, seitdem er hm ca 13-14 Jahre alt ist. Es wäre schön, wenn es machbar wäre mir eine Autogrammkarte von Ihnen zu schicken. Er fiebert wirklich bei jeder Oscar-verleihung mit und Sie inspirieren Ihn sehr! Es wär schön, wenn Sie oder Ihr Team mir eine Email schicken könnten, damit ich Ihnen die Adresse schicken kann.
Ganz liebe Grüße

Dear Hans Zimmer,

For so many years I have wondered if there would ever be a way to express the profound depth of gratitude I continually feel every time I listen to the brief 75 second theme you shared in the film "Driving Miss Daisy" which was used in several scenes: the retrospective in the empty home after Daisy was moved to an assisted living arrangement, the cemetary scene where Freeman is looking for the right headstone, and the last scene where he's helping her eat her pie. I used to study music and film in college, and it's been a life-long joy going back over half a century, but never have I EVER heard a theme that so tenderly and deeply expresses the over-arching spirit of a film as your brief composition in "Daisy." Quite honestly, it literally brings me to tears every time I hear it. I particularly love the sublime transition from a single sustained note at the beginning to the delicate, child-like wonder of what sounds like a harpsichord which then grows stronger into a fuller body of gentle affirmation. There's no way to express how deeply moved I am by this precious musical treasure. Thank you SO much.

Dear Mr. Zinner,

I have made a short video and would like to use your theme song for the movie "Broken Arrow." I have used another non-copyrighted song that is similar in the video, but as I am sure you will agree it does not compare!

My short video is entitled "EYESPOT is the Bomb!" and can be found on YouTube.

Who do I need to contact to get permission to use a short part of your Broken Arrow Theme song?

Keep up the great work!

Hello everyone:

I always thought that the music of Hans Zimmer deleted the complexities of harmony from other classical music. For me, the most interesting thing about this composer is the way he use the instruments and orchestra. Every time I hear the soundtracks of Gladiator, Lion King, Inception, Angels and Demons ... I can understand every move, the reason of the music. It's more than music stage. Good work, Zimmer. Very good work.

Hello Hans Zimmer,

I'm a big fan of all of your music and I love the music you composed for Inception. "Old Souls" takes me to a different world every time I listen. As summer approaches, I look forward to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and I have been constantly checking to see if previews would be available for your score. Today, I listened to the previews available on Amazon. Even though the previews were between 30 and 40 seconds, I'm a little concerned for the score. It's great that you are doing collaborations with other artists and creating music that you think fits the film best, but I don't understand why there is such little amount of your great original score. I'm assuming that the several remixes (included on the soundtrack) are not going to be played during the actual film because it would definitely transform the meaning and the world of the film in a significantly different way. Like you (or whoever was in charge of it) released two bonus tracks for Inception, I hope you do the same for Pirates 4. I'm also assuming that movie is at least 2 hours or even more (since the past movies have run for a great length). I'm not saying that your music is off key, I just want to hear more of it, especially if there is other music in the film. Whoever agrees with my perspective of this probably also feels that we are being cheated. Hopefully, some other tracks can be released.

Best,

Frank

Mr. Zimmer,

You music has so much emotion to it. I never knew you were the man behind every amazing movie score. One of my friends had shown me some of your work and i was beyond inspired by your music. I also produce music and after listening to some of your music i had an idea. I made a wonderful edit of your song Time from the movie Inception. I gave an already perfect track, a more electronic feel.

Mr. Zimmer,

Thank you. I am in love with the soundtrack to The Holiday. My favorite piece is Cry, a true love song that evolves taking us from sadness to pure joy with an urgency that fast is not fast enough to return to that one special person.

Thank you.

Dear Mr. Zimmer, I am a 23 year old college student near Boston and I want to thank you for your tremendous contributions to music in my life. I am a huge Bat-fan/Nolan follower and I must have listened to your scores a trillion times - the cave got me ready to go out into the world during my teen years. Incepton and its score...I cannot express to others how it makes me feel. The mathmathical breakdowns and relations between motifs...brilliant. My favorite piece of all is during Cobb and Ariadne's conversation about Mal's Totem through to his confession...a bittersweet, etheral 5-note tune moves me in a way no other music i have come across does. Thank you, I hope one day to meet you and discuss music and life...that would be one of the coolest things ever. Can't wait for TDKR! My email is homemovies539@yahoo.com - If by some chance you want to shoot me an email I would love to coorespond with you, even once!

Dear Hans,
I have listened to your scores in movies for a long time. In my personal opinion, you are one of the best. My all-time favorite one would definitely be "The Holiday" Movie. The music compliments the actors and storyline perfectly!! I love Arthur's theme! It gets me in a good mood, and makes me feel like I can do anything... Iris's theme also is just as deep, but in a more emotional way. You feel how much Miles cares for her.
I know that when I watch this movie, I instantly feel better, and I recommend it to everyone I know.
I can't wait for more!!!
