I really like the music Hans Zimmer and the people he works with create and I became curious about his work and his career. So I visited some websites and found the following information on imdb.com :
"He told in an interview that he would retire for some years after The Dark Knight, saying he has been exhausted in the past years. He also said that he wants to help young composers and would produce their scores..."
That impressed me and earned my appreciation. But then I checked whether it's a valid information or not because I thought it would mean that he wants to try to help and support young composers, that he would try to encourage and promote young talents. Anyways I must have got that wrong because when I came to this site one of the first things I read was " Hans Zimmer and other composers from Remote Control do not accept demos or unsolicited audio/video material. Please, don't ask us how to contact them either. " But then if I didn't get it wrong, and I must say I hope so, how will he be able to discover talents? If there was somebody who is really a great composer/musician, how could he get to know it when it says that he doesn't want to be contacted? I'm just curious about that and I hope I can get some answers, thank you (:
You said you were curious - here are the answers
1. Start composing ; get a degree ; compose for anything you can get paid for.
2. Get representation - Zimmer/Rifkin Remote Control Productions can't solicit material from you or Joe Compose without an (accredited) agent or manager.
3. In terms of contacting - these (awesome) dudes can't because they run a FAN SITE.
4. Networking - everyone knows someone. And some people might know a guy who's an RCP dude. Being nice and a book of faces are your film friends are key here.
5. GET OUT THERE AND DO IT. Because procrastination gets you nowhere.
Saw new Steve Mcqueen film "Shame"at Venice Film Festival last week. The opening & closing music is very similar to The Thin Red Line score. Does anyone know if this is intentional? Is it a variation on the original theme? HZ is not credited...
Is it ok for a man to cry while listing to Hans Zimmer soundtracks...where does he get inspirations to produce such beaultifull music...are you in touch with the supreme power...may God bless you and keep you halthy and happy and alive for years and years to come...so you can bring more majestic beautifull soul touching music to the rest of us...thank you Rico.
@Antas, Nicolas and possibly Damien The 5-star rating system: It kind of gives a much more vague/inaccurate idea of a score's real rating than the old 10/10 system since it apparently can't display half stars or fractions of stars.
Is this a capability you're planing to add to the 5-star system? If not, well, I like the 5-star idea, but the 10/10 system was really more useful...
I think displaying half star (or even quarter but perhaps less readable) could be done, but you will not be able to rate it with such a detail (you will be able only to give whole star note).
Right, I think that would be fine. You could still get a better idea of the aggregate fan rating, or if the HZimmer.com rating really is a 4.5 instead of a 4, etc.
Hallo! Mich würde mal interessieren wie man als Deutscher auf so einen Soundtrack wie für Black Hawk Down kommt. Das ist schon extrem gut. Leave no man behind ist mein absoluter favourite. Immernoch. Aber die anderen gehen einen immer wieder in die Knochen weil sie passen so zu den Bildern. Hab mir erst grad wieder das Album angehört und hab mal schnell geschaut wie man sie erreichen kann^^.
was meinst du denn mit als deutscher an sowas zu kommen?
Hello Mr. Zimmer, thank you so very much for your great, great soundtrack of 'pirates of the caribbean 4'! As soon ist was available at amazon I bought it and now it runs in 'infinite loop'.
But - alas - I do not understand the textes of the choir-parts, for example in 'mermaids' or 'on stranger tides'. My english ist not so good (as you can read ;-]). Is there a possibility to get the textes, can we read them anywhere in the internet?
Well, if there ist no chance - thank you despite for your great music! Sabrina
ist? textes? lern mal englisch junge dame ;)
Wenn ich besser englisch könnte, würde ich wohl die Texte verstehen! (as soon it .. das war bloß ein Tippfehler)
Und texte - ja, ok, the lyrics.
hehe kein ding, wollte dich doch nur ägern :) und zu den texten glaube ich kaum, dass das wirklich irgendwelche worte sind die man versteht, sondern irgendwelche fiktionslyrics sind, wie in gladiator von lisa gerrard.
u guys need to update JNW's page cause there's a new album out composed by him (The Green Lantern) :)
I hate to break this out but....
The Green Lantern OSt really sucks....Its like He's trying too hard to be like Zimmer. Which is exactly what Doyle did with Thor...Tried too hard. but Doyle's score was way more coherent than this one...
Hey hans!!!! You're music is great!!!! I can't imagine how so many great melodies can come into your mind.....I love especially the "pirates of the carribean" melodies!!! They are sooooo wonderful!!!!Go on writing such amazing songs and melodies!!! Every movie with your melody gets much, much better!!!! LOVE....your FAN!!
Hans and team just want to thank you for such a great website.
Hans, Thank you so much for being such a huge inspiration to me. You are the reason i began composing music.
No one knows how to get the best out of a movie with music like you do. I'm constantly amazed how your draw such emotion from every scene. Even a simple scene can have such a huge effect just because of the way you score it.
I've watched every movie you have worked on, from 'success is the best revenge', 'the zero boys' (you even made that good to watch) to 'prince of Egypt', 'Gladiator', 'last samurai' and everything else you have done.
I look forward more to your movies coming out than i do my own Birthday.
Thanks again Mark Stothard. www.reverbnation.com/markstothard
