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?

Hello Hans,
I love your music. It really inspires me to follow in you footsteps. I think that if every composer was like you the world of music would be a lovey place to be- it is now but it would be better! Your music gets to me in all ways.

Hi RCP-Webmaster,
is there a any special reason why this Website still looks like a temporary/alternativ Page? And why is it still a unofficial Website???
It will be realy cool, when some of you guys redesign this Website to something more professional. It is really unworthy for a artist like Hans Zimmer...!
Cheers...

Id like to congratulate you on yet another superb display of your musical talents in the soundtrack world. Went to see Angels & Demons last night and i was thrilled with the movie but not just that... the score was amazing. It matched what was happening on the movie perfectly.

Again i would like to thank you in making a great score to a great movie. Keep up the great work and i hope that if the next Langdon book gets turned into a movie that you are again at the scores helm.

Thank You.
Chris

would you please kindly advise on how I can get permission to use songs from the Dark Knight soundtrack? I am a high school student making a film for a scholarship that would help me pay for college. I have no intention of selling or doing anything illegal with the song. All I want is to use parts of the songs in my movie. Your advise would be much appreciated. thank you

Hello Mr Zimmer,

I don't know if you'll have a moment to read this, but I am a Huge fan of your work. I've played trumpet with a handful of touring national musicals, but I've always dreamed of being able to play in a studio orchestra with your music on the stand. I love arranging and am always trying to figure how you create some of the colors you do, my favorites are always your massive french horns and drums.

If you are, in fact, reading this I have a question. Is there the slightest possibility that I could somehow see a sample page of one of your film scores so that I might have an inkling of how to create a similar effect for the groups that I write for here in Florida? Is there any advice you can give to a loyal fan who's dreamt of playing your music into a mic and now only wants an idea of how to create one moment in music the way you do?

Thank you dearly for your consideration, your talents, and your time for reading my post. I sincerely hope to hear from you soon.

My best,

Aaron Watson
Orlando, FL

Hello Mr. Zimmer, I just want to thank you and James Newton Howard for making some beautiful music for The Dark Knight. It is filled with intense waves of emotion and moves me to tears sometimes. Looking forward to the Dark Knight 2's score. Regards.

I wish that I could personally thank Hans Zimmer for creating such beautiful music. There are countless emotions that flow through me every time I hear "Run Free" from "Spirit," and I would like to thank him, and tell him that no amount of words can explain how wonderful these songs make me feel.

Thank You!

Seehr geehrter Hans Zimmer,

mein name ist Jonathan und ich bin 15 Jahre alt.
Ich finde ihre Filmmusik einfach nur genjal!
Ich spiele selbst Klarinette und Alt Sax. (Ich spiele fast nur Stücke von ihnen in meiner Freizeit. Am liebsten Pirates of the Caribbean "Up is Down")
Ich drehe im Moment mit meinen Freunden einen Abenteuer film es handelt sich um fünf Ritter die versuchen einen Magier zu stürzen. Ich will aber keine Filmmusik klauen und habe desshalb versucht mein eigenes Stück zu komponieren. (Das ging voll in die Hose - wenn ich das so sagen darf- !
Wenn ich nun jemeanden beauftragen würde, dann würde dass aber ne ganze Stange geld kosten. Können Sie mir da vielleicht helfen?
Wenn ja können Sie mir auf diese Adresse zurück schreiben:

horsesrider@web.de

Viele Grüße aus dem Schwarzwald

Jonathan Jehle
