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 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.

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.. :(

Dear mr Hans Zimmer,

After buying a ticket for your show I just drove 10 hours to be at your concert in Wroclaw.
To my surprise you weren't there. This is a bit confusing since your name is printed clearly and large on the ticket so I would expect you you to be there.

Could you please explain?

If you go to "unofficial" concerts it's your problem, you should have checked that before... Many orhcestras organize concerts and play music from well-known composers, it doesn't mean the composer has to be there. Most of the time I guess the composer is not even aware of this concert.
