Yep ! Check the 1st 8 min track when it's out, great stuff too ! :)Do you know WHEN it will be released? The soundtrack for "A.D. The Bible Continues" I LOVE listening to Hans Music to pray to, Just love his music.@vced:<br>"The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me."<br><br>Interesting you impress upon this point with this score.  Conversely, like Hybrid cites, a contract is a contract.  Let us not pretend that Hans kicks and shoves his collaborators -- writers, arrangers, etc -- into a closet never to be mentioned or heard from again.  Essentially everything he does is a collaboration, and credited so appropriately, minus an example or so by my observations.<br><br>I don't criticize Harry or Powell every time the liner notes from a score don't specifically praise Hans.<br><br>Who knows @ the dynamics, influence, inspiration, success of a given cue?  Those that work on it.  From the idea, to the last note.<br><br>  <br><br>Love the track, Hybrid!>I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...<br><br>Now you got me curious...
"I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him"<br><br>LOL. How funny is this statement. Just can't stop laughing. Ignorance is bliss.Hans Zimmer...<br>thank you for all of your works. I wrote many pieces which are inspired by your music. Also other Amateur-componists. Hope you will continue your fantastic work for many years.Yep... One more Lorne ! Well that one's quite "old"... But one more ! lolI'm not in Sony, Warner or Columbia team to be able to tell that.Hi Damien.<br><br>Will the expanded soundtrack be made available for download at all?  Either free, or by purchasing.<br><br>I'd love to get a copy of the music in the expanded soundtrack, but this simply doesn't appear to be available. :(<br><br>Please advise.
"More Cannons" is Bowell/Palfe. What the weighting is, I don't know, though I'd be inclined to think something like 70-30. Bits of Home sounding like it isn't all that convincing an argument, since a composer doesn't need only to rip off his own repertoire ;) I'm more convinced by the Megamind similarity towards the end of that track.Palfe? haha... btw Edmund, do you still think "More Cannons" is Powell. I'm pretty sure I hear bits of it in Lorne's (excellent, btw) "Home" score!It's official enough for me ! ;)Except that was Powell himself doing Powell in KFP 2 (well, Powell and Palfe). ;)Don't think Hans can't do anything and needs people to do so... I think it was valid 25 years ago when Shirley Walker was orchestrating & arranging his scores...<br><br>But now, not really, he can do anything... He doesn't use add. composer because he HAS to, but because he wants to. Most of the times he starts the cues, gives direction and leads his guys where he wants them to go, and always has the final say...<br><br>I'll take an example, Rush... If you check the cuesheet, it's quite a mess, you basically have 0 cue with Hans alone... And yet he wrote most the themes to picture this time, with Ron Howard & Peter Morgan in the room. No theme suites... Then the guys just arranged slightly & added stuff... But a lot of the cues are him in the first place...
No official source yet, but both Dan Goldwasser and Ford A. Thaxton have confirmed it on Maintitles and FSM respectively.Exactly, ghostwriting is very common in the industry. At least his collaborators get credited here.<br><br>"Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes."<br><br>You're making it seem as if he was some sort of second rate composer, probably unintentionally, but let's not forget that he wrote Gladiator, Lion King and Prince of Egypt almost all on his own and those are considered film score classics. The first one even made it's way into many contemporary classical selections. <br><br>It's true that he took a step back in the 2000s focusing more on his role as a producer and this one is probably the prime example. However, his theme suites, especially for potc, are already a very good representation of the score's memorable parts and I'm sure the result wouldn't be very different if he did everything by himself.<br><br>And what exactly do mean by "his limitations"? You seem pretty new to Zimmer's music. He can do Powell as well if necessary as shown in Kung Fu Panda 2.Well if you take the cue sheet every composer is credited for every cue on this score...<br><br>The name on the film credit is a contract.<br><br><br>I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...Great score. But its a pity the credited composer wrote almost none of it. <br><br>I know it's a tired debate, but I don't know how people here are so comfortable with the fact he takes full compositional credit for scores like this, Madagascars etc. <br><br>Scores like this you can't even earnestly say he wrote the themes like with Pirates. At least there the core of the material is coming from him. Here, the giddy up theme is Lorne, the villain theme and Homer suite are Jackman, the Lisa theme is Alti, etc. etc. Even the main theme arrangement isn't his. <br><br>I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him, that's not the problem. Those aren't his strengths, it's not a big deal. Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes. He's also good at organising his talent. The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me.There's no news on that at all. Not on Google or IMDb. What's your source?

Dear Hans,

these days I am fully in Hans Zimmer mode. Wherever I go, I have your music on my ears. Gladiator. Fantastic. Your incredible ability to put the exact emotions into vibrations is simply...... well, I am speechless. You have produced authentic feelings in me while listening to battle pieces. Like I am there in this very moment. It is even more interesting to me, since I research the expansion of consciousness, through integration of polarities, and this experience produced deep and genuine feelings - a pure jewel in my work.

I am completely overwhelmed with inspiration, joy and strong feelings. I and my every cell that has been enjoying these days - deeply bow to you!!

And looking to your site, I realize that I have just started to discover your work :-))

Greeting from Croatia
Goran Skugor

Dear M.Zimmer,
iam a shame to say that i only recently discoverd you and your music and i wish i could say that i folow your work for years but it is not the case.

However in the short time that it took me to folow your work and realy listen to it, i have to say that its nothing more than a divine privilege and only now i know that music can reach inside your soul and spark something deep that hide behind so much physical and emotional walls.In relevance to the movies aspect it work wonderful in a way that the music just somehow take you and pot you inside the drama and just make you feel apart of the movie.

The strongst feeling i ever got from any movie soundtrack was in " Chevaliers de Sangreal " ,that music that scene just changed something in me and i felt love and a very strong feel of sacrifice, long after iv seen the movie still every time that i hear that beautiful pice.... can make an adult man to almost cry from feelings that just awake in a spark.

thank you for the opportunity to enjoy such brilliant and deep emotions.

Dear Mr.Zimmer,
My name is Lea de Melo. I am a student in Year 11 at the International School of Geneva and taking the International Baccalaureate.
In Year 11, every student has to do a Personal Project which consists of taking responsibility for our own learning by researching and investigating a topic that interest us.
My Personal Project will attempt to answer the following question: “How does the soundtrack of a film enhance or manipulate the emotional response of the viewer?”
Mr Hand , my project supervisor and the Campus Principal, suggested I contact you because of your significant contribution to film soundtracks.
I play the piano and love film scores. For the practical / creative side of my project, I will be composing the soundtrack for a scene in a film being made by the Head of Performing Arts and some students. I thought it could be interesting to combine the two and learn about how composers go about their work and inform my own composition at the same time. I have already started conducting research by seeing how music enhances the emotion in a movie scene. I have also researched film composers and I am hoping to get some of their professional advice.
I was wondering if you would be willing to answer the few questions below so that I can try to understand and compare the different approaches to process and techniques composers use to create a film score.
1) What process(es) do you use in writing music for a film? Do you discuss the film first with the director? Do you read the script? Do you choose the scenes to be scored or does (s)he or is it a collaboration? Do you view the relevant scenes for your inspiration?
3) How do you choose the style of music you will adopt? Do you work thematically in terms of the whole film?
4) How do you choose the key, rhythm, tempo and dynamics?
5) How do you decide on the instrumentation? Do you believe that certain instruments stimulate or enhance certain emotions? Is the oboe, for example, a ‘plaintive’ instrument?
6) Do you think music can “cover up” a weak scene?
6) Has there been any time during which you were not inspired? How did you find inspiration?
7) What other advice can you give me?
If you would prefer to do this over skype we could conduct the interview verbally but that might be more time consuming for you.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you very much for your time.
Lea de Melo

MW2 sucks reply Replies: 0 || 2009-11-24 00:00:00
Thanks for scoring MW2 so we don't get an option to turn the music off if we don't feel like hearing it. MW1's music team was as good if not better than your score.

So much music, awards, credits, movies, money, team, skills etc. about this amazing man and his gifted team! But still the same old shitty inofficial website! What a pity! Is there anybody who feels responsible?
I know at least 5 guys who can conjure within 10 days a website that looks appropriate/suitable for RCP-artists...

Hello,
My name is Frances Rodriguez and I am senior president of Humanities High School located in Manhattan. I am in a drumming class that has very little but we try to manage with what we have. We are the main attraction for our christmas and spring concerts. We are 16 to 18 year old kids and our drum class is just 8 students. I believe anything is possible, as young as we may be, we aspire to some day entertain the world with music as you have. We love the enchantment of it and the joy in doing it. Today i write to you to ask for suggestions on how we can get new materials for our show. My school is struggling and we cannot afford great/new instruments. I ask of you even if you could donate one barrel it would be enough to make our show a blast. We have used paint buckets and desks and chairs and people love it because we can make it happen. I have written to Carlos Santana and last year him and his management sent us drum heads for our Christmas concert. I ask of you to please help us out in anyway possible even if its a suggestion we would greatly appreciate it. I have written to the president but unfortunately the office said that they could not act on it because i was writing on behalf of the school but now i just ask to please make my peers last year the best ever. We admire great musicians such as yourself and hope that in any way possible you can reach us. My email is FRANLRODRIGUEZ@AOL.COM,

Thanks for your time in hearing me out. Please write back with anything. Thanks again.

Dear Hans,

So I know you probably have WAY too many people trying to contact you and get you to go check out their music, and if I was in your shoes, I know I wouldn't have time to look at everyone's work. But I think you might be quite interested in some of the work I have done. I'm not a genius, nor a prodigy like many, but one thing I know I'm good at as a composer is writing a memorable theme. And I ask you to please take a mere 5 minutes of your time, check out my compositions, and let me know what you think. You could tell me it sucks if you want, and that I'm wasting your time. All in all, I just really want to know from the perspective of a professional like yourself, if I really have what it takes to make it in this business. You can hear my work at www.myspace.com/mraetzel. My email address is matt_raetzel@hotmail.com. Thanks Hans, and I really hope to hear from you!

Dear Hans,

Your music brings feelings up from the inside, you have writen many incredible songs. I'm only 15 years old, and many people thinks that i'm a guy who listens to rap and all those crap who is made, but no. They looks weird, when i tell i'm listening to your and other componist's formidable work. I thank the lord, for bringing you to earth, and i thank you for making this indescribable piece of work, you've made.

Salute Alexander S.

This is a really cool site! I never knew that Hans Zimmer was so involved in some of my favorite movies! The only thing I would suggest is perhaps improving the look of the site by using a higher quality prgram that allows you to use better themes and make the site look more accomplished.

My friend and I have one small favor. Our best friend Mislav Polegubic is celebrating his 18th birthday today on 08th July 2009 and we want to give him something special. He's huge fan of Hans Zimmer and admires the way he has been making his life achievements. While our best friend was watching Pirates of Caribian he was amased by music that was made by Hans Zimmer. Few days after he went to a music shop and he bought CD of Hans Zimmer. Today because of Hans Zimmer he's trying to make something similar to Hans Zimmer arts.
What we want to ask you is there any chance that we can get a Hans Zimmer's signature and some notes or some advices to encourage him to countinue with his dream. What we want isn't expensive but it would mean a lot to him.
