It's not really that complicated...it's pieces of the Moody Bruce Transfiguration suite interspersed with bits of "Train Fight." ;) Hans could have easily done it himself. But anyway, the credits on this page are incomplete as it is, so we don't know. And it's really all Zimmer's music anyway, in this case, so...We can all just move along, I would say. :PPoor Dutch people... :PMy name is Antonius Bernardus Johannes Holkenborg. Father of a murdered child, husband of a murdered wife and blah blah blah you know the rest. ;)Well 2 more days to go. We can wait that long!Ooops new topic instead "reply" previous thread
Hybrid, check "Black Mass" trailer - "Music by: Tom Holkenborg" without JXL.His artist name was Junkie long before film scoring.<br><br>Funny thing is when he scored Dutch films he went with his real name Tom (though he's named Antonius Bernardus Johannes Holkenborg lol... remember the Antonius remix in Sherlock 2 ? ;)).<br><br>In Hollywood he went with Junkie (not on TDKR though), but he seems to go back toward Holkenborg recently. Now seems to be the transitional phase with the 2 names. I guess in the future he'll be Tom Holkenborg only... :) In the end, I don't matter as long as I know who we're talking about !! :)<br><br>Speaking of him and Mad Max, just check his recently posted videos, it's great insight !<br><br>youtube.com/watch?v=VkNeXS0Lmxc&list=PLPDbiB89zUSI-bAKsef_UC 87OMsHrv_tR&index=4One thing I don't understand, what's the deal with Tom v Junkie? What is the purpose of the two names? Which one does he go by? Which one will he use in the future?<br><br>And why, here, has he used both?It was Tom not Hans. Hybrid said it before.Nope !<br><br>Wait & see !
Please, someone leak this!!! Hybrid do you have a track you could add here?I'm convinced that Hans actually did Brothers in Arms. Must have stumbled in drunk one night.FYI the music that plays when Furiosa is stabbed during the final chase is in the piece "Immortan", about in the middle.<br><br>The piece starts off with the scene after the first chase when they lose the pregnant bride...Then it kicks into Furiosa's stab scene, then some other actiom  music I dont remember. <br><br>But in case you were looking for that bit to put right before Chapter Doof drops the bass, that's the track....Well of course he must have - Junkie is a protege of Hans Zimmer....Like all the other composers - Badelt, Jablosnky, Powell, etc. - When they first started their scores sounded similar to Hans' music in terms of orchestration and motifs used... <br><br>not to denigrade the man's work, but this doesn't surprise me and I'm fine with that...Junkie will develop his own sound eventually and explore new techniques, just as I'm sure Zimmer tutored him to do....Jesus I remember when both Powell and Jablonsky's scores sounded practicaly the same to Junkie's...And this was a decade ago.Don't mistake sound samples and music style.
Its always a surprise to see the fact that people / fans / critics / moviegoers / haters actually do not really (REALLY) listen to music. its either somewhat similar or its not and that is the end. the person behind the Hybrid Soldier name said not so long ago that there is zero Hans in this score, nothing...<br>well, its an interesting thing to say because the score that was released in europe and the version of the movie was maybe a special studio cut but I'm convinced that I heard many-many times the almost ancient Zimmer choir motif...<br>Hans started to use this signature motif somewhere around crimson tide and since then, everybody in remote control history, I mean everybody used it. also Hans is still today obsessed about it and nobody talks about this. its almost like the famous "danger motif" from Horner. but, yes its true that Hans is in re-invent mode every time, so sometimes its a female choir or sometimes male but fuck, dont bullshit around after 20 years of music.<br>other then that, yes its Junkie alone but in the end its not only his craft, he borrowed / used directly from HZ in this too.Now I saw what you meant! Indeed. Since when is Junkie THE film composer and Zimmer the co composer...I was Basically reiterating what you were saying.Right. Wonder if they still get to use RCP samples and things like that... they of course develop their own techniques but...Nope, been almost 15 years now... lol

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

Hi Mr. Zimmer,
I stayed up until 2 last night listening to some of your soundtracks. They all are amazing, but the Last Samurai songs are my favorite. Thanks for making the world a more beautiful place.

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

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)

Hello Remote Control Productions (antas@hans-zimmer.com)

Well, tonight my wife and I went to see "Inception". We left with the following:
1. The music was totally OVER PRODUCED. What I mean by that is; "Sometimes LESS IS MORE". I mean, their were numerous scenes where it was so distracting, so over-bearing... it was stupid.

2.Numerous scenes should not have has any music at all, thus making the actors of the moment more dramatic and believable. We asked ourselves... "is this for real"?

2. We loved Hans score/composition for "The Last Samurai"... but felt that much of the score to "Inception" was just a continuation of the same. Sure, composers have styles, but this was ridiculous. It was so predictable after the first 30 minutes... we just wanted it to go away.

3. The dub stage audio mixers must have been on Crack. It was so difficult to hear dialog because the pounding music score was "Over The Top"- literally. We thought we went to see a movie, it appears we went to a lesson in sound sampling and drowning orchestra. C'mon Hans, you can do better.

Knowing that this post will most likely never make to public viewing... We'll blog it elsewhere as to inform future movie go-ers to at the very least: "Buy Ear Plugs".

Sorry Hans, but this time you MISSED IT. Go back to the Drawing Board. Remember, it is a FILM your writing/scoring for, not testament to your own skills.

Every score you've ever done has blown me away. You should do the score for Deathly Hallows Part 2. That'd be pretty EPIC!!! Just saying. Not that I think you'll ever read this.

Hello,

I firstly would like to say a couple of things about me, so that you can hopefully have a better understanding of my comments. I am an aspiring Director in LA, even if this is the worst time since the great depression to be in this industry. I've done a few small projects here and there and though I've grown up with movies my whole life (hence, the profession choice) it wasn't until film school that I started to make a list of all of my favorite film score composers. I began listening to all kinds of soundtracks and it was an interesting journey.

I started out the same way as at least 80% of people out there, saying that "John Williams was the best! Come on, Star Wars, Superman, Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones, and who can say that the soundtrack for Jurassic Park wasn't one of the best soundtracks of all time!" John Williams is a brilliant composer and is definitely one of the greatest of all time, but after leaving the shallow end of the "composer pool", I noticed that I was a big fan of Danny Elfman, (Batman, Edward Scissor-hands, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.) James Horner, (Titanic, Avatar, Aliens, Braveheart,etc.), Jerry Goldsmith (Rudy, Star Trek, Alien, etc.) and many more big names. BUT, I found myself coming back to one composer over and over again.

To sit here and just type in the list of great soundtracks would be pointless, since you can easily find it on IMDb (as well as myself, but not worth your time) or anywhere else on the internet, but I am just going to mention a few. There have been at least a 2-3 dozen soundtracks that have been incredible throughout Mr. Zimmer’s filmography, but it was the "Gladiator" soundtrack that stopped me. That soundtrack became an integral part of the way I thought about the movie making process as a Director. It opened a flood door of trying to collect, listen, and compare as many Hans Zimmer soundtracks as I could. The next phase was with the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks. I found the 3rd movie's soundtrack (At World’s End) as the best and it joined "Gladiator" atop to list. Finally, "The Last Samurai". This soundtrack was innovative and seemed like Mr. Zimmer was “out of his element”, so to speak, but found the challenge of creating music of a different culture new and exciting and it came across very much in the writing.

The reason I have Mr. Zimmer at the very top of my “Favorite Composers of All Time List”, isn’t because he’s mainstream and popular, and it isn’t because he keeps getting teamed with brilliant Directors (even though he is); it IS because I understand that he is unbelievably talented and has a way of making the music he scores come to life. Sure people say that all the time, “the music is supposed to be that way dummy!” It’s more than that with his music. People don’t fully appreciate film scores. You can tell me that you “love it and that it’s amazing” until you’re blue in the face, and I may agree with you; however, until you can comprehend WHY the music FEELS the way it does, EXPRESSES the EMOTION the way it does; and until you can grasp the concept, that someone (namely Mr. Zimmer) has been able to take the same air we breathe, capture it, mold it into tiny notes on a page, then translate these notes with the addition of dynamics, pitch, tone, resonance, and rhythm, into sounds that vibrate that tiny little bone inside your ear, setting off millions of synapses that then influence the chemical make-up of your brain, altering your state of mind and perception until you FEEL your mood start to fall into a trance strikingly similar to the way a cobra dances to the Snake Charmer’s flute. THEN, I’ll know that you understand the abilities, power, and downright magic that Mr. Zimmer possesses.

With all finally being said, I only wish to thank you Mr. Zimmer for the incredible work you do. For the brilliant and masterful way you have influenced how a story is told. Lastly, for the way your music has allowed not only the story, but life itself to enhance the way we perceive the world around us. I can only hope to have the privilege to work with you one day. Thank you.

A True Fan,
-B. Wayne Blackburn III-

I felt so compelled to look this site up to write some sort of feedback. The music for Inception (particularly 'Time' ) is the most beautiful music I have ever listened to. I am practically speechless as to describe the beauty in this music, it cannot be compared.

It is a masterpiece!

Mr. Zimmer,

I'm sure you've heard enough people tell you what an amazing job you've done composing music that is both uplifting and inspiring. I just wanted to say as a young filmmaker, your music from Dark Knight and Inception has inspired me to write both screenplay and music.

There is something in your music that expresses some of the deepest of human emotion and every time I listen to it, it touches my soul. I think "Old Souls" from Inception is your best piece yet followed closely by "Lasiurus" from Batman Begins.

My hope is that one day, when I'm in Hollywood, I will get to work with you. Setting your music to one of my films would be an honor, sir.

I know you're a very busy guy, but I would love to send you a copy of my screenplay for my short film. My email is treeoflifeproductions@gmail.com. Even if I don't hear back from you, please continue to bring inspiration to the world with your music.

- Daniel Lightfoot

Hans, I'm using a translator to write, please excuse if there are grammatical errors. I have 15 years and when I saw the film Spirit was fascinated with your music. I started searching all your discography, and further, that film (with music) made me feel new things: love of horses (now I practice riding), passion for music (I play the piano) and a taste for film music.
Frankly, I consider you a genius, and thank you for what you do, because otherwise I would have loved your music would never be doing so many things that I'm happy.
I want you know, sure I'm not the only person that improve lives, and wanted you to know, because as an artist, you might like to see than people changed with your work.
I send a big welcome, and sincerely I would contact you by e-mail, but I know that is impossible with the artists.
I hope you keep writing more, delighting your audience.
Mailén.

I have been a huge fan of your music ever since The Lion King, when I was growing old enough to appreciate film music =) You are incredibly talented! Your music makes each film so much more powerful. It would be an honor to have a chance to intern or work with you. I am also interested in any general advice you have about getting started in the music business. I would be more than happy to send you a résumé and/or some samples of my music. My email address is lnhuddleston@gmail.com. I know you are extremely busy, but I would be ecstatic to hear from you!

I promised my sister named Jessica Jimenez I wouldn't but she is a fourteen year old girl who is striving to be more like you. She is constanally trying to go to one of your concerts, but fails to do so. At the moment she is learning to play the guitar, and has picked up the flute, piano and is very good at making her own notes. I want to say thank you very much because without you as her rolemodel she'd be lost. Her words to me are that one day she'll meet and train with you...the best! Thank you and have a wonderful day! :) Becca
