While John Powell is usually far more melodic and classical than your usual RCP composer, I don't see the Williams similarity. His music doesn't really sounds like Williams' scores. But I think he is perfect for Star Wars. I am much more excited about this than Giacchino's Rogue One.Yeah, this is the best RCP action score of the year so far. Much better than Balfe's efforts and Junkie's.@superultramega It’s funny you should say that about Rogue One because, even though I do like the themes, I will agree that it definitely is weaker than any Star Wars score and seems to lack the life Giacchino normally puts into his music.<br><br>Even weirder, his music for Jupiter Ascending (another big space opera) is far more aggressive and developed, and probably one of his best. It makes me wonder if the Star Wars team wanted the safe route....Ok, not restraint on drums, but I still don't really see how exactly his music for animated films comes even close to being an RC product. When I think of RC I think of the music for the Pirates movies, the early Bay and Bruckheimer films, etc. The work on Shrek, Antz, Ice Age, and How to Train Your Dragon is much closer to a traditional Williams score than any RC product. <br><br>Plus he's working on Star Wars so he's obviously going to try his damnedest to stick to that kind of music, and to avoid the Zimmer style. I just don't understand why you think Powell, of all people is going to be the one to dilute the Star Wars sound. <br><br>Hell, I think Giacchino's score for Rogue One was pretty much nothing more than an unmemorable, and bland version of Star Wars with very little going on besides broken down notes of the Star Wars theme playing and generic Williams copy. Just like Jurassic World. I don't know how Giacchino makes Williams' style bland but he finds a way. At least with Powell we'll get more style and memorability on top of a Williams imitation.Restraint on drums? <br><br>Have you listened to Green Zone? The Bourne movies? Hancock?<br><br>Cmon...Yeah he's not Zimmer, but this isn't a Williams product we are talking about. It's an RC product. This is what I am talking about.
People like Harry Gregson, Jablonsky and Zanelli, despite their melodic tendinsies, would be people chosen for going the Zimmer route. I think Jablonsky's is the closest to Star Wars but even then there's a ton of power themes, and Zimmer hallmarks that keep him away from this sort of style. <br><br>Powell is the last person I would associate with Zimmer. His techniques are very much in vain with the Williams-like composers, like Alexandre Desplat and Michael Giacchino. The complex underscore, the rapid notes, the restraint on drums, instrument variety, the jazz techniques, etc. He's the perfect RCP composer for the job.Of all RCP members, I think he is the one closest to Williams and Star Wars sound, so I think this score will be pure orchestral fun, like most of his scores usually are.<br><br>I cannot wait to listen to it!Well, I guess that is a matter of tastes and opinion, because for me scores like The Incredibles or Up, for saying some examples, are classics inside the animation field.<br><br>But is fine. We have our own preferences and that's okay.Me too! Very fun and « guilty pleasure » score<br>After listening to this one and Todo Mal, I think Andrew is a really versatile composer, both scores are really entertaining and yet have nothing to do with each otherI like this score, altough i think it will fly (get it) under the radar..<br>Hope Andrew continues making scores like this
IMO, though Powell was Hans'protegee 20 years ago, he always had his very own style. And this style evolved so much through these decades you can't really connect any more his mannerisms to those of people at RCP!You can't call Powell "the Zimmer route". He's written some of the densest, flashiest orchestral film music of the last 10+ years!And how is that a bad thing? :-p<br>John Powell is an excellent choice to have both a big sounding and fun RCP score, and an orchestral one which would fit with the previously established style.Cant say Im 100% invested.....<br><br>This will be the first Star Wars score to go the Zimmer route...Well maybe you guys are right, to be honest i never cared much about this composer. All i know is that i almost never noticed any kind of theme when watching movies scored by him, while usually I'm the kind of audience who pays attention to the music. It can be that his way of writing or orchestrating or mixing doesnt match with my own taste, that's a possibility. Anyway I still maintain that none of his scores or themes has become a "classic", despite the ridiculous amount of major blockbusters he had the chance to score so far...
home is very very soothing. (i sound like i have said it before lol) 
<br>
<br>it’s the one cue i can listen to a zillion times and never get tired of. i hope upcoming movies will give Hans or whoever in remote control an opportunity to do similar cues. elisabeth in inferno is the closest but is so short.
<br>
<br>i have mellowed. i love these mellow cues.John Powell stated on his Instagram that the album will have 19 tracks, and be over an hour!Its not a film, its an album. This was still during the days of Hans' involvement with 'The Buggles'.I don't think you have listened to the Star Trek scores properly. Giacchino has a main theme that he uses a lot, but also a theme for Spock, themes for the bad guys of each movie and even a theme for the city of Yorktown in the third movie.<br><br>Another great example of this is LOST, where almost all the characters had a theme that played through all the series and there were also themes for locations or even situations.<br><br>So I don't think Giacchino is out of the use of themes.I mean sure, but I can't think of many Giacchino scores that actually match that description. The Star Trek reboot scores for example, where he has a (pretty good) main theme that he plays the same way roughly sixteen thousand times over and over again. :p

Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer

In Ihrem Fall macht das Wort geehrt sogar wirklich Sinn und Freude. Ich weiss nicht woher Sie diese Tiefe aus Ihrer Inspiration in Ihren Werken hervor bringen, die Art wie Sie Gefühle durch Ihre Kombinationen auslösen ist sehr berührend. Das wissen Sie selbstverständlich, haben Sie ja vermutlich schon tausend Mal gehört.

Auf diesem Weg möchte ich Ihnen gerne mitteilen, dass Sie in mir eine unglaubliche Kraft für das Positive entfachen. Als ich gesehen habe bei wievielen Filmen die mich in bestimmten Sequenzen berührt haben, Sie die Musik dazu gemacht haben, war ich "fast" schockiert. Der Höhepunkt für mich persönlich ist zwar Time, aber es gibt unzählige viele Stücke mit dem gewissen Etwas.

Nun wie dem auch sei, vielleicht erfahren Sie eines Tages auf welche Reise mich Ihre Lieder mitgenommen habe. Seien Sie nicht erstaunt. Ich danke Ihnen für Ihre Ausdauer und Ihr Wesen. Das ist eine "wahre" Freude!

Beste Grüsse
Pit

Hi Hans! I'm a big fan and also a Film Composer!

Currently I will be doing the music score for this short film, but the filmmakers need help with raising funds, could you help us with our crowdfunding?

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I am actually very interested into Orchestras and Scores.
I have seen tons of footage and also did some recherche how to arrange and organize an orchestra, when I suddenly stumbled about two and a half questions.

Question one:
why are string and woodwindinsruments the only ones with a static position?

Question two:
on what does it depend, that Xylophones, Drums, Pianos, Harps and sometimes Brassinstruments, vary their position?

Question two and a half:
does this depend on the acustic of a room or is there any certain specialty to define the seating?

When artists like Hans Zimmer have their staff include the disclaimer: "Please don't ask us how to contact them ( i.e: Hans or the other Remote Control composers ) either" on their Contact page -it's clear that thes artists have lost touch and respect for the people who have put them where they are today. Why even HAVE a Contact page on your website if you don't WANT fan contact? Oh wait, I get it -we're only supposed to use this Contact page to lavish praise upon Hans and his fellow ( Remote Control ) Music God composers. What was I thinking? These Music Gods wouldn't actually want to "rub elbows" with the "little people" who purchase their music ( -which allows them to make very comfortable livings for themselves ). I actually feel sad for these out of touch "stuffed-shirts".

Well said Tom, and what shall I say, you hear it in the newly compositions. Not the theme but the production outcome is bad. Hollywood is taken over, so sad ...


Andrew2017-03-02 01:27:25
Maybe it's because they were getting too many, "Hey, Hans, listen to what I wrote" kind of submissions mixed with just regular abuse of the contact page. I'm a composer and understand not wanting to allow free contact, you have only so many hours to write something incredible. On top of that, 'Hollywood' is a very friendly world of professionals who are willing to teach when the opportunity arises. Hans is doing a master class, yes he probably gets paid nicely, BUT WHAT COPOSTITION TEACHER DOESN'T? Especially world renowned. Lastly, Hans doesn't make the bulk of his money from selling OST's, he get's it from working on big budget projects. Hans is very much on board with being in contact with the public but has to have some safeguards for himself in terms of contact. Do something amazing and maybe he'll decide to "rub elbows" with you.

What is Captain Barbossas theme in Pirates of the Caribbean?


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-04 22:11:04
I don't think he ever got a specific theme - the ominous rising theme from "Fog Bound" and "Underwater March" is sort of used for Barbosa and the undead pirates, but not really enough for you to make that connection. The first Pirates score was never all that careful about what themes it used where and for whom - that sort of leitmotif approach didn't really happen until the second and especially third ones (and then was totally messed up again in the fourth, where IIRC they use a motif associated with Cutler Beckett/the EITC for "privateer Barbosa" for some bizarre reason).

Dear Hans Zimmer Team:


Hello. I am a huge and serious fan of Hans Zimmer music. I am also a big fan of John Powell, the composer of scores of <The Bourne Supremacy>.

I am eager to get a "film version" of <Bim Bam Smash> the studio version of which I have. (You know, just like <Training Montage> from <Rocky 4> comes in a film version and a studio version.)

The film version of <Bim Bam Smash> is a little longer and more heart-pounding than the studio version. I could not find any tip on how to get that version after searching the whole Internet for days. I thought about extracting the score from the movie file (mp4), but the other background sound is too loud.

Any tip would be appreciated.

Dear Mr. Zimmer

Currently I’m studying 3D animation. For my degree dissertation i have to do a small 3D animated
movie. your soundtrack from the gladiator „honor him & now we are free“ would be just perfect.
I hardly can immagine another soundtrack.

Therefore I allow myself to kindly ask you if it would be possible to use them and what
would be the cost of it. there would be no commercial use! only the presentation of the film
at the school (EB, Zürich, Switzerland) which is published on youtube as well as on my homepage.

Thank you for your kindly answer as soon as possible as my project has to be ready in
April 2017 and I should start to work on it by mid of November 2016.

Fabian Käser, Switzerland

Just FYI the new Titanfall 2 video game score is composed by Stephen Barton, former HGW assistant. Not sure if he is still associated with RC as I have not seen the score's in-depth credits but I thought it might want to be listed on his credits page here :)
