Yeah I don't think getting "extra stuff" whatever is the problem, people mostly just keep bitching for a not-damaged Quantifiable Connection. The NTFC stuff is mostly resolved at this point, and I wouldn't say the official NTFC track was a demo. It's looking like the track was intentionally mastered the way it was. And I like it.It's not a demo... lol<br><br><br>Anyway, First Handshake, seriously ? It's just a music editing.<br><br>We have all we need from Interstellar. There's a pile a HZ scores that would deserve some extra stuff. I crossed IS off the list ! :PAlan, in fact we actually got "something straight from Zimmer", and it was the crappy No Time For Caution demo released on iTunes. Something coming straight from Hans doesn't necessarily mean it's better than other people's arrangement...I completely disagree, the score was fitting for the emotions per the scenes. Yes it has electronica but I think the decisions made fit perfectly!I made most of the fan edits you are talking about, and I still agree. I'd like to have the original, missing / lost tracks in my possession just as much as you guys would.
I was gonna say the original Composer announced was Hans. does anybody ever pay attention to thatAh, yes, Boldizar - you hit what was going to be my response to Ds right on the nose: the problem of them not being lossless. This score needs to sound as good as possible, as far as I'm concerned, and tracks being lossless is a must - so that is why I hold out some small, tiny hope for an official complete release. And for the fan edits, they are fine, and the folks who worked on them are fantastic, but I'd still like something straight from Zimmer.We won't see anything for years if ever.  Alan the best you can do is to get the FYC CD and merge the tracks not on the "official" releases.  Unfortunately it will never be lossless due to the FYC cd source.  The only missing cues are First Handshake and the Credits which are friend has on YouTube with the NTFC film mix and a fixed QC.<br><br>Ds, the ISP is missing quite a bit cue wise.Does anyone know when the score will be available?Hum I get your point but what cue are we missing here? I do not remember any missing piece of music, the release + the promotional FYC seemed quite exhaustive. The only problem is a damaged track (which has been repaired by fans) and an alternate track (the film mix has been recreated by fans). So in the specific case of Interstellar I don´t understand your complain...
Just checking in to see if anyone's heard or read any more about anything coming out? I know it's effectively a over and done deal, because we've never received a complete Zimmer score, but I'm still hoping for one - or something with more music.<br><br>I wish Zimmer had more control over his music - or care, really. I guess as an artist, once you're done with something, it's time to move on, but he just really seems to be "eh, I'm passed that" in every interview he does about it - that or it's him saying "We'll see" or "It's up to Water Tower" or "Eh, it's out there somewhere. Who knows." Howard Shore does the same thing with the Hobbit complete scores - he just seems so "whatever" about the whole thing when anyone asks him, or that he has no clue how much there is - Shore even stated that the release we have now for "An Unexpected Journey" is pretty much complete - which, would be true, if it had the other 40 minutes worth of stuff that's not on it. Why do scorers seem so oblivious to what they've made? Or careless?<br><br>I can't tell if Zimmer just doesn't care, understand, or has no control over it, which upsets me. I'm not hating on him - I just wish I had a way to listen to that gorgeous score, even though I'm not entitled to it. Being a fan of film score sucks.Chronological order:<br>02 - The Medallion<br>03 - Valentine<br>01 - Manners Maketh Man<br>04 - To Become A Kingsman<br>05 - Pick A Puppy<br>07 - Skydiving<br>06 - Drinks With Valentine<br>08 - Shame We Had To Grow Up<br>09 - Kentucky Christians<br>10 - Curious Scars And Implants<br>11 - Toast To A Kingsman<br>12 - An 1815 Napoleonic Brandy<br>13 - Eat, Drink, And Paaaaarty<br>14 - Calculated Infiltration<br>15 - Out Of Options<br>Pomp And Cicumstance<br>16 - Hand On The Machine<br>17 - Finale<br>(18) - Original Valentine IdeasDid you use actual cuesheets or infos from the ASCAP database?Dear Mr. Zimmer<br><br>I am currently studying in my Final year at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, majoring in film composition.

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?

Many thanks and regards,

Leonid.

Hello Mr. Zimmer,

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?

Thanks!

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?

Monika Schmidt reply Replies: 4 || 2013-10-14 18:10:02
Lieber Hans Zimmer,

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. &#9829;

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.


Russel2013-12-28 23:04:38
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 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...

Hallo Herr Zimmer,

wann darf meine Stimme mit ihren Noten verschmelzen ?

Ich singe seit Kindesbeinen: dank meiner Mama und Olivier Messiens, der mich in Avignon in seinen Kinderchor geholt hatte. Seither habe ich auf der klassischen Ebene agewirkt, allerdings immer nur nebenberuflich.

Meine Seele ruft nach ihrer Musik. Wann darf ich mit ihnen verschmelzen. Gehen sie gerne auf meine Facebook Seite oder Soundcloud, dort sind einige Soundproben in modernem Musikstil hinterlegt.

Sehr geehter Herr Zimmer. Ich bedanke mich für ihre Musik die
Mich sehr geprägt hat. Ich habe mir sogar ihre soundtracks angehört
Ohne die filme gesehen zu haben :-). Es ist erstaunlich dass sie so verschiedene soundtracks komponiert haben und trotzdem jedesmal ihre alt bekannte Note mit rein bringen. Vorallem möchte ich mich dafür bedanken dass sie Komponisten wie Klaus Badelt oder Ramin djawadi gefördert haben.
Es erfüllt mich mit Stolz dass ein deutscher der beliebteste Komponist der welt ist, und dies gilt doppelt für Ramin djawadi, da wir beide die selben wurzeln haben. Hören sie bitte nie auf mit der Musik und wenn es möglich ist, würde ich mich sehr über eine welt Tournee freuen um sie evtl in Hamburg live zu erleben.

Mike2013-09-19 23:37:17
Not sure, but Zimmer posted on Facebook that one website listed the score as one of the reasons to see the film. It'd be kinda mean of him to tease us like that. But then, maybe that's the idea: he wants us to go watch the film, not just go buy an album.

Doug reply Replies: 2 || 2013-09-08 07:23:25
Mr Zimmer, the version of Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire instumental you created for Mission Impossible 2, with acoustic guitar and orchestra was fantasic. I wish you would compose a complete song out of this. I think it would be very popular.

One criticism though...you give no credit to Cash or the song in the film credits, while at the same time you've gone after web posters, e.g. youtube, to keep your music from being shared. A bit hipocritical to me. It was only by reading comments under one of these posts that identified the song's origin.


MacArthur2013-09-08 07:30:01
I didn't hear that in the score so i don't know what you are talking about. and also maybe that is not what he was trying to do. like me I compose some stuff or progressions sound so good you just have to use them, and then you listen to a score and then you hear the very same progression and think hey that sounds like mine it might be something where he doesn't even realize that he's doing it. It just sounded good so he went with it.


Doug2013-09-08 09:27:29
MacArthur, it actually plays twice in the movie and is very short the longest piece of it is played at the end of the movie when Ethan meets Nahya in the park. I plays right before the Mission Impossible theme song at the end.

You may be right about Zimmer just composing it without realizing the connection. His version varies enough in tempo and instrumental content that I didn't realize it was the Ring of Fire...I just know it sounded familiar. I think Zimmer could make this short piece into a much longer (e.g. 5 min) full length song without too much trouble. It's a really beautiful song the way he has done it.
