Mr Zimmer ! I am a Digital Media student of Edinburgh Napier University, I am doing Sound Production module with Dr. Iain McGregor. Is it possible to get some critics regarding my project I have done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oWNpej9XC0 My e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Regards Roman
Hello Mr Zimmer, I enjoy your music a lot. I was wondering...... (here goes) Would you do a collaboration with Two Steps From Hell, Instrumental Core or any other soundtrack creator. I think it would be a great idea!
I just worked my butt off,for 2 weeks-and then i read the RULES ! You are not in the competition if you are NOT a citizen of these countries ; 2.4 This Competition is open to residents of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada (excluding Quebec), Germany and Sweden only Im living in my native Copenhagen,9 km from Sweden-and that fact disqalify´s me from the contest ! Just be shure you know these "rules" before youre get youre hopes up ! I simply find Hans Zimmer FRAUDULENT when he says "Come-ALL composers-I Want You ! Hans Zimmer DONT want you if youre not from those-seemingly arbitrary countries ! Good Luck (with that name-youll need it!)
Really? It took you two weeks to rework this? Then you're clearly wrong for this job anyway because over here in LA you have to write a minimum of 2 minutes a day, for TV even more - in the same quality as that competition piece.
Also, don't call him fraudulent, please. They clearly marked the rules, it's your fault for not reading them beforehand. Lashing out at him and his peers for your mistake is not fair. Also, I'm guessing that the reason for the country restrictions is simply a VISA reason - it is very hard to get in the US so I'm guessing they have some go-to people for these specific countries. For all other countries, it would probably simply be too hard or expensive to get a VISA.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that Zaine Griff will be releasing a CD of remastered demos from the 1978 - 1981 on the 15th May. The collection featuring 14 tracks in total, will include several recorded with Hans Zimmer and Warren Cann (Ultravox)recorded around the period of the 'Figvres' and unreleased 'Spies' sessions. In an unashamed plug, please head over to my Zaine site for more info. www.zainegrif.co.uk
Hello, master Zimmer, I present my name is Remy and I live in France. I address this message to you to express my gratitude and thank you for the happiness you bring to me through your music compositions, I am your work for more than a decade, despite the time ever you get to amaze me. Some of your songs are so precious to me, they come to expressed a lot of feelings in me, indescribable. People have dreams to be an actor or singer, to be rich to travel. Me if I have a dream, nothing happened for a minute with you in the studio and see you at work, this dream is unattainable, I ask you if you could send me an autographed photo that you will for me a small portion of my dream fulfilled. Thank you very much and good luck! If I give you my contact information.Rémy Calédonien Rue du bois venay Bâtiment Provence Appt 28 28350 Saint Lubin Des Joncherets France
I'm a Performance major at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and will be working with a lot of composers in the future. For my final Artistry, Creativity, and Inquiry seminar project, I get to present the views and experience of one expert in film scoring, and I'd like that person to be you. Because of your amazing work for film such as The Lion King, and The Dark Night, your creation of a variety, and your unique background which was raised by musician mother, and engineer father, I know my class would be really interested in getting your insights into film scoring. Would it be possible for us to have a brief 10-15 minute discussion about this over the phone or Skype in the next 3 weeks? I know how busy you must be, so if it isn't possible, I completely understand and appreciate your considering it.
Could you make an option to load the latest releases as a LIST? Right now there is the scrolling bar at the top of the website, which is an improvement from the previous arrow controls. But could you make a "See All" option so that we could view all the latest soundtracks released in a list?
Mr. Zimmer: I have zero talent at anything and can only admire and appreciate from afar, both literally and figuratively, but I have watched Angels and Demons over and again, I am mesmerized by the score. I am an atheist, perhaps my lack of talent makes me so, perhaps religion is also a talent or a gift as Professor Langdon suggests. As such I cannot "feel" what one might feel by making beautiful music and I know I cannot truly appreciate it or the actually hard work and effort that refines the talent. Even as a non-believer, the Vatican has always had a fascination for me and this perfect score deepens my appreciation of the beauty of the art, the antiquity, and the tradition of so many centuries of the Church's dogged perseverance. This music will also persevere. The music rises above the silly fantasy in the film as well as the actual blandness of the church outside it's beautiful and bright trappings. The score is so much more than the film, the value of the film is really the art that it displays with it's admittedly high production values (led by your score), which makes it very watchable. When this film is forgotten, the score will still remain and I hope it one day finds itself in a film that fully matches it. Thank you for this beautiful music, it makes me feel like a better person just by listening to it. Thank you for making life a little better.
Dear all, I'm seeking publishing rights to "Maestro" composition by Hans Zimmer (there's a synch request for it). It used to be controlled by Universal Music Publishing in the past. But now the publisher seems to have changed and I cannot find it. Do you have any idea about it?
I'm a huge admirer of your work and have used some of your orchestration ideas in many of my own compositions! As I'm sitting here listening to some of your tracks, I wonder how you work through your compositional ideas--essentially, how do you take an idea and put it to music?
The reason I ask is because classical composers (Beethoven, for instance) have sketchbooks that we can observe and see their compositional process. But since composers started using technology to write, these "sketches" aren't around. I guess what I'm asking is what would your sketchbook look like?
I am madly in search of the greek sounding theme from the little 1987 thriller "The Wind"/aka "Edge of Terror". Hans Zimmer took part in the credits and I think, he wrote that wonderful piece of music. But can't find it anywhere on CD. Does anyone know something about it or where to get it?
It has never been released on CD. You should by the DVD and rip the score from it
Bad news, but thanks very much for answering. Now I know, I can stop my searching. The DVD is already mine.
How does one start learning the trade? Classical music and movie scores are all I enjoy listening to, and I want to do something in the music field for a lifetime gig. But I have no idea where to start, being a freshman in highschool.

Hallo, Herr Zimmer! Ich war sehr von Ihrer Musik inspiriert! Sie sind wahnsinnig talentierter Komponist! Ich würde gerne wissen, werden Sie in der nächsten Ankündigung in der Welt oder in Russland Konzerte?
ich will ihnen von ganzem Herzen meinen Dank ausrichten. Ihre Musik ist einfach wunderbar, wundertoll. Sie haben so vielen meiner Lieblingsfilmen die Musik verliehen und somit auch die Emotionen und Gefühle, die sich in den Filmen aber auch in uns widerspiegeln. Sie haben jedem der Filme eine Seele gegeben, eine Geschichte, ein Gefühl. Sie haben die Figuren durch ihre Musik zum leben erweckt, denn ohne Musik würden sie nur einfache Animationen sein. Sie lassen uns durch die Musik die Gefühle der Figuren spüren. Ihre Musik ist besser als, jeder Song, der in den Charts auf Platz eins war oder ist, denn in jedem ihrer Stücke ist ein Teil ihrer Seele vorhanden, man kann dies spüren. Ich kann ihre Musik stundenlang hören ohne dabei ein Gefühl der Eintönigkeit zu bekommen. Mittlerweile kann ich nur noch ihre Musik und die von ihrem Kollegen, John Powell, hören. Mehrmals erwische ich mich, wie ich bei meinen Lieblingsstücken vor Freude lächle oder sogar weine. Sie inspirieren mich jeden Tag aufs neue. Das tolle an ihrer Musik ist, dass obwohl sie einige male ein und die selbe Melodie benutzen, wie zum Beispiel im Film Kung Fu Panda 2, diese sich aber immer voneinander unterscheiden, denn mit jedem mal kommen andere Gefühle mit ins Spiel. Die Schönheit ihrer Musik ist eigentlich gar nicht in Worten auszudrücken. Man kann dies nur fühlen. Wenn ich ein Bild zu ihrer Musik malen sollte, dann würde es kunterbunt sein, aber nicht so, dass es dreckig aussieht, sondern leuchtend, sauber, klar. Sie und ihre Musik sind mehr wert, als alles Gold, Silber der Welt. Sie sind einfach unbezahlbar. Genauso wie ihr Orchester, die ihren zauberhaften Noten klang gegeben haben. Mit diesem Brief schreibe ich wohl einige der vielen Gedanken auf, die jeder Fan von ihnen hat. Diese Gedanken sind aber viel zu viele, als dass man sie aufschreiben könnte. Würde man sie alle aufschreiben, wäre das daraus entstandene Buch die „Bibel“ für Hans-Zimmer-Fans.
Ich danke ihnen Hans Zimmer. Ich danke ihnen, und ihren Eltern, dass es sie gibt. Ich danke ihnen, dass sie ihre Bestimmung in der Musik gefunden haben. Ich danke ihnen, dass sie mich inspirieren, mich zum lachen, weinen bringen. Ich danke ihnen, dass sie so tollen Filmen die Musik geben. Ich danke ihnen, dass sie genau ihr Orchester gewählt haben.
Ich danke ihnen Hans Zimmer. Für Alles. ♥
Ich hätte es selber nicht besser ausdrücken können! :)
Hallo Monika, Wir sind Seelenverwandt :-) Du hast das sehr schön beschrieben, mir geht es genauso. Gruß Michael
schön geschrieben ;)
Wirklich sehr schön :) Seit kurzem bin ich begeisterst von The Last Samurai. Unglaublich, was man mit Musik alles machen kann. - "Mittlerweile kann ich nur noch ihre Musik und die von ihrem Kollegen, John Powell, hören." Mir geht es genauso, habe schon ewig die Top 40 charts nicht mehr angerührt. Someone should send this to Hans, he would be glad to read that. :)
Dear Mr. Zimmer, I was just requesting if you could make Washington, one of the songs from 12 years a slave, a 3 minute piece, since it is quite amazing.
What you could try and do by yourself is maybe make your own extended version, I agree it is very short. It is just a part where Solomon gets out of the Carriage and Arrives at Washington. So, that's why the cue is called "Arrival at Washington". And, I am pretty sure the film version, or the one played within the film is actually shorter than what is on the Original Soundtrack/FYC Score. I have not seen the film though, only have watched that scene, in the Roundtable interview. Which, is actually very interesting to watch. The 40 minute interview flew by! Learned a lot, I think. Hope this helps :)
Dear Mr Hans Zimmer. Hello. I am Minseo Jang, a student of University of Suwon in Republic of Korea. I have a urgent request. Recently, the headmaster of my college is suspected of several corruptions. So I decided to make documentary about it and working on it. I don't want to make any money from this and All I need is to make everyone noticed in school. I found your music from 'Dark knight Rise' is quite fitted with my small film. So I wish you to allow me to use several ones. I hope to receive good news. With my respects, MS J.
Dear hans zimmer, I was watching a movie 'the burning plain' and i was facionated by one wonderful soundtrack done by you and omar rodriguez ropez, 'are you coming?'. This song is the best soundtrack ever in my life, so i really wanted to download and keep the mp3 file in my music folder and i did it. But the point is, all music files i have searched and downloaded through out the internet were recorded with the movie sound effects such as car door's closing sound and airplane engine sound effect. It bothers me concentrating to the original song it self.( .. would you mind telling me the way how to get an original sound of 'are you coming' ? I will appreciate very much...
