Probably the only reason Goldsmith isn't in my top 3 is I haven't heard enough of his music. :pWallfisch is a good composer indeed, but BR2049 (and Dunkirk) were absolutely the wrong place for him. He's not a synth guy. He was originally a protege of Dario Marianelli, for heaven's sake - he's got a far more classical/orchestral sensibility. A score like Cure for Wellness is a much better fit for him. I'm not sure why Hans thought it was best to bring him of all people in on BR2049 when the more electronically-inclined Mazzaro/Kawczynski duo would have made more sense for a Blade Runner score (I say this based mostly on Chappie).Ian - no one is trying to compare Balfe to Zimmer !Firstly there is a 20 year age gap!!!Zimmer will always be the best in my eyes but doesn’t harm saying someone else can be good <br><br>Still confused why this conversation is still troubling some.I remember saying last year that I thought Lego Batman was one of the best animation scores that year and it caused some to have heart attacks.there are a hand full of people that don’t think he is either good or should be working .... we get !!!! <br><br><br><br>Edmund - given the rationality you've displayed in your comments, I'm disappointed Goldsmith isn't in your top three. ;)<br><br>In all seriousness, I'd put money on Powell fucking nailing the integration of Williams's theme. While Giacchino did a solid job on Jurassic World and Rogue One (I tend to think my assessment of the latter is a bit more positive than most), frankly I just think Powell is a far better composer - a genuine A-level guy, whereas Giacchino is moreso very competent without that spark of pure talent seen in Williams, Goldsmith, Elfman, Zimmer etcI think it's worth noting that Zimmer's popularity at this point is largely under his direct control - meaning that if he were to decide to stop touring, go back to writing full-time, and return to his 'epic' thematic style, I think we'd see a surge in his popularity of the sort we saw from Batman Begins through til Interstellar. However, I just don't think he's interested, which is totally his right.<br><br>I certainly agree that the RCP proteges at this point are, frankly, shit compared to how they used to be. I mean, even a guy like Steve Mazzaro (who I genuinely like and who wrote some of the coolest cues in Chappie, and basically co-wrote BvS - a score I actually like) just utterly pales in comparison to the Powell era.<br><br>Actually, I have to take that back a bit; Wallfisch is a very, very talented guy, honestly so much better than someone like Junkie that I weirdly tend to forget he's under the RCP roof now.
@HunterTech<br><br>"I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world."<br><br>Exactly. Hans, for all the criticism he gets (much of it for good reason), has written some of the best film music of all time (seriously, having listened to huge amounts of Williams and Goldsmith, I still find Science & Religion my favorite cue ever). On the other hand, Lorne has written innumerable adequate-to-good scores, but none that I can recall are iconic. I'd say the closest he's come is in the form of his contributions to some of Zimmer's work (personally, I think his Kick It theme is the most interesting of those in Inception), but even then he hasn't done anything as memorable as Djawadi's theme from Batman Begins.Michael - reread the second half of my previous comment. And no, I don't think Genius or Churchill are no good; I wasn't impressed by the second, to be honest, but Genius is really cool - like an updated version of Frost/Nixon, one of my very favorite Zimmer/RCP scores.<br><br>Edmund - much appreciated.<br><br>Overall, I too am baffled by many of these comments; clearly there is a middle ground between "Lorne is shit." and "Lorne is absolutely amazing.", but this seems to be missed.<br><br>And by the way, I'm actually super happy for Lorne's success - I think he deserves it given the quality and quantity of his work, and he seems like a super nice guy to boot (how many composers regularly respond to people on Facebook?). However, this doesn't mean I can't simultaneously point out the fact that much of his work is very, very similar to work he's done previously. Indeed, I think this is more of an issue for Lorne than Hans, perhaps because he takes on sooooooo many projects.I agree. His Justice League theme is just a deconstruct of his Batman theme. Clever, yeah sure - he's done similar things with the Men In Black sequels and I'm sure there's others I can't think of right now - but I personally dont consider Elfman's involvement in this new DCEU to be very welcome. Zimmer paints a different canvas than Elfman, and I love both their works.It was a missed opportunity.<br>Yeah... I'm not sure about Elfman's wave. The guy decided to bring back his old Batman theme instead of actually writing a new one. He has to re-invent himself. <br>
Seven with ZimmerYeah, Silvestri, Newman, Goldenthal and JNH too. The six most popular "new" composers, along with Horner, of the  80's and 90's.I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitI saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitHonestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.
Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.Pete you are funny, although u demand from others to talk about the actual soundtrack from this page, you start to talk also about another soundtrack. but ok.... i think Forgotten is a very boring track and adds nothing to the actual scene. a variation of his theme from the track Hero would have been much more intense for the ending. sadly we got 9 boring minutes of thematic development and instrumentation. Lorne can do much better as the track Hero from the same soundtrack shows.Zimmer got X-Men: Dark Phoenix this year. And I have a hard time believing he is only scoring that film this year. Zimmer always does more than 1 film a year.No need for petty cursing .<br><br>We can discuss the soundtrack instead ! <br><br>Forgotten is cool track.It’s definitely one of Bay’s best movies. Wish he would make more drama based film obvious with some action. Can’t cope with more robots ! The ending of the film is so emotional and this track gave goosebumps at the end. Did sound very similar to the end of The Last Knight"Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subject."<br><br>Ok, so someone else gets us on this topic, an arguement occurs, and NOW, only when you've realized you're losing the arguement, do you decide that this page is only for 12 strong. Which it's not. This is a forum we talk about whatever we want here.<br><br>But what a childish and pathetic attempt at avoiding our points. Just dismissively saying "Boring! Change the subject! My ears can't handle this criticism!!! Wah, wah, wah!" I guarantee you the next step after this is going to be petty cursing.

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.

Hallo, Herr Zimmer,

mein Name ist Monika Zimmer, doch leider habe ich wahrscheinlich keine Ver-wandtschaft zu Ihnen.

Gemeinsamkeiten gibt es trotzdem, zumindest bezogen auf den Musikgeschmack.

Und in gewisser Weise bin ich „Zimmer-Nachwuchs“, denn ich habe soeben mei-nen ersten Song komponiert, der mit Projektmusikern eingespielt wurden, die z. T. aus Dio- oder ehemaligen IRON MAIDEN-Coverbands stammen.

CLAWS OF HATE© ist ein einnehmender, vielschichtiger Musical Rock Song mit charismatischem Gesang und würde sich auch als Filmmusik oder ausschnittsweise als Untermalung für Werbeproduktionen eignen, die mit Energie, Sport, Reisen, Versicherungen oder dem Freiheitsgefühl zu tun haben. Er passt vielleicht sogar zu der bald beginnenden Weihnachtszeit.

Es wäre schön, wenn Sie meinen Song mit der verbundenen Idee unterstützen könnten. Hier ist der YOUTUBE Link dazu:
