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.

I'm afraid you can't even if there is no commercial purpose. This could depend on each country laws, so it is better to ask to association that manages artits' rights.


Areozz2012-02-29 00:42:03
Comments made by that lansen guy need to be removed. He posted all over here telling people what's okay and what's not and he has absolutely no authority here whatsoever. You wouldn't want people getting in trouble because they took the word of a nobody, would you?

Ok, I am glad that I have not done anything as of yet, tyvm Damien. Do you know who I would contact for the Lion King CD then? or Who I would need to speak with, since I am in the states? I want to do the correct thing, so I don't step on any toes or get anyone into trouble. I appreciate it greatly!


Damien, Moderator2012-02-29 20:18:43
@Areozz: you're right, its better I edit this post.

@Elaine: for States and as I presume rights are hold by Disney, it should be the MPAA.
Another way is that on the CD you should have the copyright owner, so by contacting him you should get the answer.

There are more of lansen's posts down this page and he has possibly posted on other pages that have had recent activity.

Is it possible to use Mr Zimmer's music for non-commercial videos?

We are a volunteer organisation, operating 1920's trams [streetcars/trolleys].

We invite retired people [greys/silvers - people over 65] to enjoy the experience.

We show them videos [we have made] of the old days and then take them on a ride, followed by morning or afternoon tea.

May we use the music for our 'videos'?

It's a soundtrack, you're supposed to put all the music on it.

I would appreciate it if in the future all of the Kung Fu Panda soundtracks actually included ALL the music from the movie.

I am greatly disappointed in the fact that I paid for something and realistically only got half of it.

Same with the Kung Fu Panda 2 Soundtrack.

Is there any chance we could get the music that is missing from the soundtracks?


Mycroft2012-01-12 04:51:15
This place is only a fan site, man. Asking the webmasters and programmers of this site to give you the missing music to the soundtracks you seek isn't going to help you at all. They might not even have the music themselves--and even if they did, they aren't just going to share it with you because you want it. No, they might not even share it with you if you paid good money.

There is absolutely nothing you can do nor is there anyone you can contact here or hardly anywhere else on all of the world wide web who can help you get the music you seek. I hate to be a dream crusher, but that's the way it has to be--it's the way the world goes round.


Sad Fan2012-01-12 05:05:57
I just fund out that on the Kung Fu Panda 2 website, it has an auto playing music thingy, that plays through the entire soudntrack of KFP2, only that, it has EVERY song from the movie, unlike the soundtrack. Now, how to download them....


theeaglesfan0052012-01-12 16:54:56
the record companies dont see a huge market in releasing FULL scores... they put 60ish minutes or so & sell it... there's apparently a bigger market in commercial releases.. makes me mad... i mean LOTR & The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo have full releases that you can buy.. i hope TDKR does this


Mycroft2012-01-12 17:35:57
@Sad Fan: You can download an add-on for Firefox that will snag that music for you. Or you can go digging deep into your temp internet folders. And if all that's too complicated, you could just do a stereo mix recording of the music that's playing through Audacity.


Sad Fan2012-01-13 01:00:41
Yes, I managed to download all the songs, but unfortunately, they are all crap quality. This pisses me off so much.

Hello RCP team, now in english.

I have a question which I can find on the Internet now no conclusive answer. As it now looks really, if I want to use the amazing music from you in a Machinima (video game)? Can I? It should be posted on the YouTube platform then. Where would I updating of course, that this music comes from Hans rooms. Question now, I allowed to do that ... through some forums and have not come to the answer which really is acute! :) Thank schonmal, and the BEST OF album - Prague Philharmonic is really beautiful! :)

Kind regards, Dennis!

Hallo RCP Team,

ich habe eine Anfrage worauf ich im Internet nun keine schlüssige Antwort finden kann. Wie sieht es nun eigentlich aus, wenn ich die atemberaubende Musik von euch in einem Machinima (Game Video) verwenden möchte? Darf ich das? Es sollte auf der Youtube Plattform dann veröffentlicht werden. Wo ich natürlich beischreiben würde, das diese Musik von Hans Zimmer kommt. Frage nun, darf ich das.... hab einige Foren durch und komme nicht zu der Antwort die nun wirklich akut ist! :) Vielen Dank schonmal, und das BEST OF Album - Prague Philharmonic ist echt wunderschön! :)

Thanks.


Mycroft2012-01-07 18:04:04
Well, if it's not on the OST and there are no expanded versions of the score (are there? I've never even heard of this film), then likely the only people who can help you aren't going to. The elitist pigs have all the music us low-downs could ever dream of having but they are not allowed to share their music because of the way the world works.


Dennis2012-01-08 19:23:23
Yeah, it is not on the OST and I haven't found something like an expanded or extended version...what a pity. Searching for this track for years.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
It is my dream to work on compositions for video games and films. I have been an accomplished musician for some time now, and I have played guitar since age six. I am now twenty-one years old, and I am pursuing a bachelors degree in video game production, and hopefully afterward, a bachelors in composition. I have so many questions before I make my final decision. I was just wondering if you could tell me how I can become a great composer if I am already memorizing my compositions, and playing them on guitar. Do you use any specific computer recording, enhancing, or mixing programs? If so, which ones? This has been my dream for such a long time, and I have been a huge fan of your mastermind compositions since "The Gladiator". Thank you for continuing to be a great inspiration!

Respectfully,

Benjamin Sterling HArtman

Ich habe kürzlich eine Rockversion von Hans Zimmers "Dream is Collapsing" aufgenommen. Auch wenn der Traum, dass Hans Zimmer himself es mal zu hören bekommt wohl nicht in Erfüllung geht, erreiche ich hier sicher ein paar Leute die es interessiert.
Ich weiß nicht wie das mit Spam und direktem Verlinken ist, daher verzichte ich darauf. Wer Lust hat, einfach "Steffen Schöps Hans Zimmer" bei Youtube in die Suchleiste eingeben!
Ich danke euch! :)

So i just wanted to say that i made a Rock Version of Hans Zimmers "Dream is Collapsing". I know that the dream that Hans Zimmer himself could hear it will not come true, but still i think that there are a few people here that could be interested.
So if you want, just write "Steffen Schöps Hans Zimmer" in the Youtube Search bar. That`s it, so easy!
