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.

Dear Mr. Zimmer, I am a 23 year old college student near Boston and I want to thank you for your tremendous contributions to music in my life. I am a huge Bat-fan/Nolan follower and I must have listened to your scores a trillion times - the cave got me ready to go out into the world during my teen years. Incepton and its score...I cannot express to others how it makes me feel. The mathmathical breakdowns and relations between motifs...brilliant. My favorite piece of all is during Cobb and Ariadne's conversation about Mal's Totem through to his confession...a bittersweet, etheral 5-note tune moves me in a way no other music i have come across does. Thank you, I hope one day to meet you and discuss music and life...that would be one of the coolest things ever. Can't wait for TDKR! My email is homemovies539@yahoo.com - If by some chance you want to shoot me an email I would love to coorespond with you, even once!

Dear Hans,
I have listened to your scores in movies for a long time. In my personal opinion, you are one of the best. My all-time favorite one would definitely be "The Holiday" Movie. The music compliments the actors and storyline perfectly!! I love Arthur's theme! It gets me in a good mood, and makes me feel like I can do anything... Iris's theme also is just as deep, but in a more emotional way. You feel how much Miles cares for her.
I know that when I watch this movie, I instantly feel better, and I recommend it to everyone I know.
I can't wait for more!!!

Hello,

I have heard an amazing music score today, the title was "Hymn to the Fukushima 50" on an Internet radio. I couldn't find the composer's name listed, but it sounded really Zimmer-ish, big, deep, emotional, melodic... does anyone have any information whether Hans or a colleague of his created this score?

Thanks much!

Anne

My love for Hans Zimmer's music began when I was ten and Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl came out. I am eighteen now and ever since that movie I have developed an extreme love for movies and soundtrack scores and when I go to see new movies, as well as immersing myself in the plot of the film, I pay close attention to the music that accompanies it.

After seeing Inception last year I decided that yes, it is now one of my favourite Zimmer scores. Especially 'Time'. I just finished watching the live performance on Youtube and I'm not going to lie, I was sitting in my chair weeping like a little child. I cannot express my love for Hans Zimmer and it's times like these, crying in my chair, that I wish I wasn't in Australia. We do not get live concerts from composers like Zimmer.

Oh man if I saw a live concert, I honestly don't think that any experience I would or could have in the future could EVER top that. It truthfully is my one and only wish.

BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT WORK.

Hi Hans

(I hope you sometimes find the time to read these comments).

While on a recent business trip to Mongolia, I took with me a selection of your music. This was a terrific combination of the wild, exotic and freezing (-35°) panoramic views, and your highly entertaining, emotive and classical (to me) music.

I particularly enjoyed The Dark Knight soundtrack as the soundtrack to my Mongolian visit.

I'm listening to it now (while in my office in Switzerland), and I feel like I am transported; not only back to Mongolia, but also to a very special and passionate place.

Long may you continue to entertain!
Thank you very much Hans!
Paul Davies.

I'm not sure if you actually ever read this, but I would like to applaud your work in pretty much every movie you've been in lately. The quality of the music is amazing, and I don't think people give the musicians behind everything enough credit. Anyway... You probably don't want to hear this from a 16 year old girl, but I think it's pretty amazing what you add to these movies, and I would die (not literally, of course) to be in a band or orchestra like yours.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
I am a 17 year old girl who lives in Reno, NV. I know how unlikely that it is that this will receive any individual attention, but I could not stop myself from telling you how much your music has changed my life. Its powerful and raw, full of so much emotion. When I was a kid I used to watch movies over and over just to listen to the music. Now I actually have the majority of your soundtracks on my ipod. When I found this site I was ecstatic and thrilled like the band kid I am that there was a place where it all was. It is put together simply and easy to figure out. Basically, I just wanted to say thank you for bringing the wonders of your music into the light for all to hear.

Wow had no idea he had done some of the music that you listed. Thanks for that info. The first time I noticed him was on the soundtrack for Crimson Tide. Every since then when I really like the music in a movie I look to see if it was him and I'm not surprised when I love the music and his name rolls up the screen.. Truly talented thanks for bringing this website about a gifted, gifted composer...
