I LOVE this score, it's like Nine Inch Nails, a mix of industrial/rock ambient sounds. This and the dark-ambient music of Blair Witch (2016) by Adam Wingard, two of my favorite scores of this month.I think Steve just seemingly confirmed he's scoring Transformers 5 on his Instagram. Not that i was worried. :))))And on that note, this is actually one of the more emotionally-driven sound design scores I've heard.Well said, Edmund. And ultimately, the final decision really does come down to the director and his preferences. It must be hard being a film composer right now. Write a score that sounds great on its own but doesn't fit with the tone of the film, it gets bashed. Write a minimalist, more sound-design oriented score, it gets bashed.I don't really see how the movie's subject dictates that the score be dark and electronic either. I think both approaches have possible merits and possible disadvantages. You might say that an orchestral, thematic score is tasteless because it would play tragic deaths for "cheap" drama...but if that's your case, then isn't the entire movie also guilty of the same thing? You might just as easily say that by going the electronic route, Jablonsky is neglecting the human cost of the disaster and focusing too much on its mechanics.<br><br>I don't agree with either line of thinking, though. A good score is a good score no matter what it's made of. I *personally* don't much like listening to sound-design scores, and I wish Jablonsky had gone for something a bit more expansive for purely selfish reasons. But that doesn't mean I think his approach was an invalid one, and I don't think you should say that an orchestral approach would have been invalid either. It's all about the execution.
Thanks.Hahaha no, I haven't done any cover at the moment. I'm searching the score from the vocal version (there's a version in youtube, I don't know if you know it) from "now we are free" and the orchestal score of "Chevaliers de Sangreal". I really love that theme!<br><br>And also sorry for my bad english, I'm spanish studying english :DThere is some "Incredible Hulk" reprise in "Not that sort of bank"The movie is about a disaster with real people, don't fit a orchestral epic dramatic score, more a electronic, dark, gritty score.<br><br>Everyone expect orchestral when don't fit in every movie...Looks like it's digital only :(
People here seem to forget that scores and soundtracks are made for a movie. They are not made as a music album in the first place. Some composers make like more than 2 or 3 scores a year. That's not the same like an artist or band who makes an new album once in 2 or 3 years). <br><br>Scores are a really nice extra thing you get from a movie and yes some albums are great to listen to, others with more like an ambient and underscore type of sound can be seen as disappointing and boring.  I think it's wrong to give Jablonsky a hard time here because he made a score that will fit this movie, but when listening to it without the movie it can be kind of boring... Composers don't make this music just to bring out a new album for us! They make music for movies and afterwards they can share it with us. <br><br>About the movie, I don't think this movie needed some kind of memorable heroic themes. It's a serious thriller and giving this some theme's like Transformers would look and sound ridiculous. I was expecting a score like this.Steve said in an interview that they didn't want a orchestral score, so he made it completely on his computer. Check interview here: youtube.com/watch?v=Glr-dgumGgoLove this Score Great Work!!!!Don't always blame the composer. More often than not, it's a combination of director, producer(s) and studio.I realize there are some harsh tracks akin to Battleship but if you just skip to the end you will find the final cue is one of the most gorgeous and emotional of Jablonsky's career :)
...or more likely the director/producers wanted something more akin to sound design than melody.Well...John co-wrote the main themes from KFP 1/2.... :PSo then why is John mentioned on every cue ? Surely he contributed something to these view also ?ggggrrrrrrrrrr, tictictictic, ccrrrrrrrrrssssshhhhhhh ... that's all I heard listening to the Deepwater Horizon. The movie makes me want but compsition Steve Jablonsky is unbearable listen-only. Gone is the time of the first Transformers. Jablonsky disappoints me more and more to serve us sound design. to believe that he knows more compose MUSIC ...Bit late to the party but IMO you're absolutely right. If you listen to these pieces back to back with the Crimson Tide score, which is phenomenal, you'll notice how present Zimmer's influence is.

Guess what, Hans...

I'm going to remake my song to suit... Gladiator!

The public will be the judge!

You know what is all about, huh? ;-)

Hello Hans,

Pretty sure you won't really read this because you get so many messages, but I'll give it a try anyway! I'll be coming to your concert on the 24th of May in Rotterdam (in the Netherlands, my home country). And it would just mean the world to me if you'd perform ''Now We Are Free'' from Gladiator that night, because it's kind of my life's anthem, haha. I know you probably have a strict regime and order of songs you use in your concerts (and maybe this song is already in it), but I just wanted to give this a shot because it's the most beautiful song ever and I'd love to hear it live.

Thanks!

Hi Maia,

Hans Zimmer,

YOU HAVE TO READ THIS. First of all your music and soundtracks for the large amounts of movies you cooperated with are masterpieces, especially in Batman V Superman. But this is a suggestion. AS AN HOMAGE TO THE DCAU, JUSTICE LEAGUE , JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED, CAN YOU PLEASE REMAKE VERSIONS OF THE THEME SONGS OF THE TWO SHOWS AND USE THE THE FIRST THEME FOR PART 1 AND USE THE UNLIMITED THEME FOR PART 2. This will bring out the glory of this legendary group of superheroes and the tv show which once was home to them. Seriously, please do this.

Reply or not, please do consider this!
Thanks!

Mr. Zimmer,
greetings from Portugal.

First of all and as you may imagine already, I am a huge fan.

I have a question which I think all of your fans that never have seen a live concert yours already made, but I would like to ask you, when / if there is some thought to come to my country or Spain in a short time.

For sure there are many fans as me asking the same all around our country.

Will apreciate your answer.
Thanks

Dear Zimmer,
First of all, I am an ordinary person. I've interested theater but not professinal. I love your music. If you can allow, I would like to use "Drink up me hearties" and "Mombasa" and "Good Authority" music for the street theater play. It's including genres satire and dramatic. It is free. Open for everyone
I wait your answer.
Sincerely

Didier reply Replies: 4 || 2016-02-02 19:05:27
Mr.Zimmer, I love your music. Particularly the themes of Pirates of the Caribbean. My favorites are Blackbeard's theme and Jack Sparrow's theme. They give me goose bumps every time I hear them, and believe me... I don't easily get goose bumps. I tip my hat to you! You are a musical genius!
Greetings from Belgium!


Edmund Meinerts2016-02-02 22:59:04
Blackbeard's theme over Davy Jones or the love theme from At World's End?


Didier2016-03-22 16:06:45
@Edmund: Blackbeard's sounds more epic. Though Davy Jones' theme is wonderful as well.


Edmund Meinerts2016-03-22 22:22:32
No way! Blackbeard's theme is...okay, I guess, but it's just a typical descending POTC-ish motif. Davy Jones' theme is SO MUCH more versatile and three-dimensional as a villain idea - it can be tragic, angry, brooding and, yes, epic.


Byron Sleugh2016-04-10 04:42:25
I love Davy Jones' theme. I did an arrangement of it for trombone choir because I thought it was pretty awesome.

Their war here-
Thank you hans zimmer and junkie xl (Tom) for creating another incredible soundtrack.
The only thing missing is that the soundtrack version of
their war here is different to the move version, and doesn't have the man of steel elements with that dang dang daga da daga science fiction sound when the world machine is destroying metropolis and batman comes to the rescue.
That was my favorite part of the Man of steel soundtrack and its such a same it's included in the opening of the film, but that a different version is on the soundtrack.
But otherwise an amazing epic soundtrack.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
as an ambitious amateur composer from Germany and real fan of your soundtracks I'm looking forward to your concert in Munich at April the 26th.
I just composed a short orchestral version from "Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing On Rainbows" and I wish I had an orchestra like yours. But for me a midi orchestration must be enough. Here my work:

Hi Mr.Zimmer. I absolutely love your music. Somehow i feel i deep connection to it that i cannot explain. Just thank you! =)

I have a question, will the music of the Tv series "Through the Wormhole" ever be released in some shape or form(especially from season 2)?
That music is just perfect, it gives me goose bumps and brings tears to my eyes. Best music i've ever heard for sure!

When I would have a Taxi Hollywood with enjurance for return;
I would want to live in Lady Gagas Villa, drink red whine with Roland Emmerich while being livetime apprendist and free composer, desighner under the friendly sponsoring of Hanz Zimmer in his studios; while hawing even the possibility to free make what I want in creativ collaborations.
All that in the hope that Francis Ford Coppola would not let kill me bekause I may have dishonourated my italian family.
Midwhile I search a Job.

Hallo,....

die PEGIDA ind Deutschland nutzt den Song 'Time' von H.Zimmer und betreibt damit wie ich finde Propaganda...

Das finde ich nicht nur sehr traurig, sondern denke dass das am ende illegal sein sollte. Ich geh einfach mal davon aus dass das nicht im Namen von H.Zimmer passiert ist.

Sehr würde ich mich freuen, wenn der Komponist sich hier distanziert und man vllt Pegida auch mal auffordert das zu ändern.

Soweit ich weiß ist das Urheberrechtsverletzung!

Würde mich sehr freuen wenn man so etwas bewegen kann!

So sad..
I created a great (Dutch) ChristmasWish with MovieMaker for my friends. Because I love the movie (and soundtrack) "the Holiday" so much I used it to go with my Wish. Wanted to send it to my FBfriends, but got deleted within a few minutes.
It had nothing to do with copying, it should be seen as a compliment. Stupid Copyright.. :(

Bought tickets off worldticketshop.com for the Paris show. Can someone please put my mind at ease and assure me they are legit! I know I may be panicking for no reason but these are a Christmas present for someone very special, and a trip to Paris as well. Anyone outside of France get Paris tickets yet?
