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.

Hi Mr Zimmer and team,
I'm a big fan of your music, you bring an extra dimension to each film you work with. One of the best works I' ve seen (or listened to, actually) is "Inception", the 2010 Chris Nolan's motion picture. An outstanding job you did here, really. Along with the film there was an iphone app released. Something awesome. I use it a lot. Whenever I travel, or try to sleep, or having a "siesta", or when I need to be focused at work, or when I ride my bike, or walking home.... However, since I upgraded to iphone 6, the app doesn't work as it should. I was shocked there is no way to contact support to report the problem, other than the app store where no problem is ever solved. I was wondering if you could assist on this. Maybe you can get me in touch with the developers team to report the bug, or escalate the issue. It would be great and I'll be more than grateful.
Thanks in any case.
Cheers
Javier

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
There is a bollywood movie that is about to be released named 'Bajirao Mastani'and they have copied your music from the movie,Man of Steel(Arcade soundtrack). I am a big Man of Steel fan and and this is just ridiculous as firstly they copied your music and have the audacity to modify and use it in the mainstream. Here is the link to the trailer

What happened with Harry scoring Southpaw?


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-03 11:32:56
Don't know, but James Horner was announced on it quite a while ago, so I think people were only assuming Harry would be on it because of his previous Fuqua collaboration The Equalizer. I don't think he was ever officially attached, was he?


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-03 11:35:23
No Edmund, Harry stated in an interview like 2 weeks before Horner's interview, that he was going to start it... Don't know what happened.


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-03 12:01:08
Hm, weird indeed. James Horner seems like the last guy you'd expect to see scoring an Antoine Fuqua movie, that's for sure!

Dear Mr. Zimmer

I am currently studying in my Final year at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, majoring in film composition. For my mini-dissertation I am analysing the developmental characteristics of your film scores. It would benefit my research immensely if I could email you a short questionnaire regarding my work.

Kind Regards

Wow, I can't think of anyone the best of the best other
than Mr. Hans Zimmer! Luckily I stood next to him, if
recalled correctly, at a film showing for the Italian
Film Festival a few years ago. To experience Mr. Zimmer
and his music in so many films keeps getting better.
Music is "a universa language" and it makes all alright,
alright. Bravo, and wishes for a long, healthy life to
you (Mr Hans Zimmer).

Webmasters

I have noticed that every now and then a certain album page gets flooded with discussions about another - usually forthcoming - score, for which we naturally don't have a page yet. I was thinking maybe we should have a thread for each score a RCP composer is attached to work on - whether or not any album(s) are planned or released for it - and then, later on, a separate page for the actual albums when those become available. This could make things organized and probably easier to follow. Just a suggestion.

To me you are considered one of the best if not the best composers of the modern era. It would be an honor to see you someday live in concert. Do you ever come to Cleveland, OH?

Thanks for the music!

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
I am currently working on a short drama movie for a contest exclusive to high school students. «Time» being one of my all-time favourites, I was wondering if my team and I could use it as the main soundtrack.

We will in no way gain money from this short, nor do we intend on sharing it beyond the contest's audience reach. Thank you for your time and your masterpieces.
