I agree, typically JunkieXL's music doesn't do much for me, but I can't help enjoying "Brothers in Arms."I must have gone to the YouTube comments section by mistake.OH! You did what you did because you can. Here's an idea, in case you haven't thought of it: you can take off your clothes and run around naked in a train station. It will be timely as f**k.<br><br>BTW, you took nearly a month this time. Hibernate much?ultra frikin epic best OST song ever :´)yeah realffingmusic i did because if you havent noticed i can do what i want. and my message is timely as it'll ever be cuz this movie still sucks balls 3 years later
So hearing JunkieXL's scores recently, this has really made me wonder...did Zimmer *really* work on the Arcade and Zod theme suites, or are they really all Junkie and Zimmer's name is a nice formality? Because they don't sound especially Zimmerish *anyway,* yet they sound identical to JunkieXL's recent output. ;)The Terminator Salvation video game correctly included the T-1000 motif, even if it wasn't used in the right context.<br><br>If Balfe stays, I'm hoping he leans more towards synth in the next score. If not, then I hope whoever takes over does.The samples sound great! Looking forward to hearing this!This score should've sounded more like Chappie...Alas, you are correct...<br><br>Since T3 all the scores have gone symphonic...Sure, there's percussion and some nifty SFX to go with the music, but as a whole it just doesn't fit and turns the movie into an action adventure. Beltrami and Elfman made good themes, but they just missed the point.<br><br>Terminator should very well sound synthetic.  <br><br>I figured with Remote Control behind the wheel this time, we'd get that. But in my opinion Balfe just went with Beltrami and Elfman and decided to turn this into a Jablonsky Transformers sounding score with more of your usual symphonic material. <br><br>Sure, it's using synths, but to be honest I would have preferred the synths Junkie used in Mad MAx over what was used here. Or hell, drag out Han Zimmer's harsh droning synths from the early 2000s...toss in some more anvil and marching band for the percussion and there you go. <br><br>I simply don't understand why this is so difficult. Or maybe it's too simple and that's why they keep missing the mark. <br><br>The Terminator Salvation video game score sounds closer to what I was hoping it would sound like than what we got.<br><br>Oh well...Nice themes though.
FINALLY! :DListen carefully to the score. Its not hard to see who did the work.<br><br>Zimmer writes his simple, strong themes like the shen one and then Balfe gives them the ornate orchestrations and Powell-esque arrangements. Simple. Like I said here months ago on the batman page. Zimmer doesn't write this style of complicated cue himself. That's not his style. He doesn't do frilly and swirls and trumpets, he does austere and basic. Enter Balfe to spice it up.<br><br>Maybe that's why people are mixing up and thinking Powell did more than he did. Zimmer tunes + Balfe arrangement and you get a decent impression. Which was pretty much Megamind as well, a mini-Powell score in parts. Balfe is a very good arranger let's give him credit.Really looking forward to this.@Hybrid<br><br>Oh? That's interesting. Was it like a "Pirates" situation where everything was rushed or a producer thing?Powell did "Po Finds the Truth," apparently. I do find it pretty funny that it seems like the two primary composers didn't have as big a role as some of the secondary ones...And yet, this score is still great!
Any ideas which scenes Powell actually worked on, if any?There aren't much interviews because the projects didn't go that well during its production. And Powell actually didn't do much.I agree, to me the score mostly sounds like Lorne Balfe. <br><br>But I dunno, as I've said before, I don't think it's a case that Zimmer or Powell write a sketch and then sit back and drink coffee while the others do the work. I imagine it's very collaborative. <br><br>Unfortunately there's very few interviews/info about this score compared to a lot of others, which is a pity, because it's one of the best RCP collaborations. It's a really tight, well put-together, consistent, enjoyable score, and it's a shame none of the composers involved want to talk about it!I agree. Zimmer isn't heard obviously in much of this score, as has been repeatedly hashed out, but neither is Powell, if you ask me! It does seem like the additional guys did most of the writing here, albeit copiously using old themes and cues and doing so, presumably, under Powell and Zimmer's direction. I honestly don't see Zimmer *really* doing much of KFP3, either, even though his name is the main credit so far.<br><br>Thoughts?it seems that Intrada will release AGENT CODY BANKS on 7/7 :) source are the hints in the Intrada or FSM forum.

Hello, master Zimmer, I present my name is Remy and I live in France. I address this message to you to express my gratitude and thank you for the happiness you bring to me through your music compositions, I am your work for more than a decade, despite the time ever you get to amaze me. Some of your songs are so precious to me, they come to expressed a lot of feelings in me, indescribable. People have dreams to be an actor or singer, to be rich to travel. Me if I have a dream, nothing happened for a minute with you in the studio and see you at work, this dream is unattainable, I ask you if you could send me an autographed photo that you will for me a small portion of my dream fulfilled. Thank you very much and good luck!

Mr. Hans

I'm a Performance major at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and will be working with a lot of composers in the future. For my final Artistry, Creativity, and Inquiry seminar project, I get to present the views and experience of one expert in film scoring, and I'd like that person to be you. Because of your amazing work for film such as The Lion King, and The Dark Night, your creation of a variety, and your unique background which was raised by musician mother, and engineer father, I know my class would be really interested in getting your insights into film scoring. Would it be possible for us to have a brief 10-15 minute discussion about this over the phone or Skype in the next 3 weeks? I know how busy you must be, so if it isn't possible, I completely understand and appreciate your considering it.

Thank you for your time,

Soodeok

To the editors of the sight-

Could you make an option to load the latest releases as a LIST? Right now there is the scrolling bar at the top of the website, which is an improvement from the previous arrow controls. But could you make a "See All" option so that we could view all the latest soundtracks released in a list?

I really appreciate your time. Thank you.

Mr. Zimmer: I have zero talent at anything and can only admire and appreciate from afar, both literally and figuratively, but I have watched Angels and Demons over and again, I am mesmerized by the score. I am an atheist, perhaps my lack of talent makes me so, perhaps religion is also a talent or a gift as Professor Langdon suggests. As such I cannot "feel" what one might feel by making beautiful music and I know I cannot truly appreciate it or the actually hard work and effort that refines the talent. Even as a non-believer, the Vatican has always had a fascination for me and this perfect score deepens my appreciation of the beauty of the art, the antiquity, and the tradition of so many centuries of the Church's dogged perseverance. This music will also persevere. The music rises above the silly fantasy in the film as well as the actual blandness of the church outside it's beautiful and bright trappings. The score is so much more than the film, the value of the film is really the art that it displays with it's admittedly high production values (led by your score), which makes it very watchable. When this film is forgotten, the score will still remain and I hope it one day finds itself in a film that fully matches it. Thank you for this beautiful music, it makes me feel like a better person just by listening to it. Thank you for making life a little better.

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...

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.
