@vced:<br>"The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me."<br><br>Interesting you impress upon this point with this score.  Conversely, like Hybrid cites, a contract is a contract.  Let us not pretend that Hans kicks and shoves his collaborators -- writers, arrangers, etc -- into a closet never to be mentioned or heard from again.  Essentially everything he does is a collaboration, and credited so appropriately, minus an example or so by my observations.<br><br>I don't criticize Harry or Powell every time the liner notes from a score don't specifically praise Hans.<br><br>Who knows @ the dynamics, influence, inspiration, success of a given cue?  Those that work on it.  From the idea, to the last note.<br><br>  <br><br>Love the track, Hybrid!>I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...<br><br>Now you got me curious..."I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him"<br><br>LOL. How funny is this statement. Just can't stop laughing. Ignorance is bliss.Hans Zimmer...<br>thank you for all of your works. I wrote many pieces which are inspired by your music. Also other Amateur-componists. Hope you will continue your fantastic work for many years.
Yep... One more Lorne ! Well that one's quite "old"... But one more ! lolI'm not in Sony, Warner or Columbia team to be able to tell that.Hi Damien.<br><br>Will the expanded soundtrack be made available for download at all?  Either free, or by purchasing.<br><br>I'd love to get a copy of the music in the expanded soundtrack, but this simply doesn't appear to be available. :(<br><br>Please advise."More Cannons" is Bowell/Palfe. What the weighting is, I don't know, though I'd be inclined to think something like 70-30. Bits of Home sounding like it isn't all that convincing an argument, since a composer doesn't need only to rip off his own repertoire ;) I'm more convinced by the Megamind similarity towards the end of that track.Palfe? haha... btw Edmund, do you still think "More Cannons" is Powell. I'm pretty sure I hear bits of it in Lorne's (excellent, btw) "Home" score!
It's official enough for me ! ;)Except that was Powell himself doing Powell in KFP 2 (well, Powell and Palfe). ;)Don't think Hans can't do anything and needs people to do so... I think it was valid 25 years ago when Shirley Walker was orchestrating & arranging his scores...<br><br>But now, not really, he can do anything... He doesn't use add. composer because he HAS to, but because he wants to. Most of the times he starts the cues, gives direction and leads his guys where he wants them to go, and always has the final say...<br><br>I'll take an example, Rush... If you check the cuesheet, it's quite a mess, you basically have 0 cue with Hans alone... And yet he wrote most the themes to picture this time, with Ron Howard & Peter Morgan in the room. No theme suites... Then the guys just arranged slightly & added stuff... But a lot of the cues are him in the first place...No official source yet, but both Dan Goldwasser and Ford A. Thaxton have confirmed it on Maintitles and FSM respectively.Exactly, ghostwriting is very common in the industry. At least his collaborators get credited here.<br><br>"Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes."<br><br>You're making it seem as if he was some sort of second rate composer, probably unintentionally, but let's not forget that he wrote Gladiator, Lion King and Prince of Egypt almost all on his own and those are considered film score classics. The first one even made it's way into many contemporary classical selections. <br><br>It's true that he took a step back in the 2000s focusing more on his role as a producer and this one is probably the prime example. However, his theme suites, especially for potc, are already a very good representation of the score's memorable parts and I'm sure the result wouldn't be very different if he did everything by himself.<br><br>And what exactly do mean by "his limitations"? You seem pretty new to Zimmer's music. He can do Powell as well if necessary as shown in Kung Fu Panda 2.
Well if you take the cue sheet every composer is credited for every cue on this score...<br><br>The name on the film credit is a contract.<br><br><br>I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...Great score. But its a pity the credited composer wrote almost none of it. <br><br>I know it's a tired debate, but I don't know how people here are so comfortable with the fact he takes full compositional credit for scores like this, Madagascars etc. <br><br>Scores like this you can't even earnestly say he wrote the themes like with Pirates. At least there the core of the material is coming from him. Here, the giddy up theme is Lorne, the villain theme and Homer suite are Jackman, the Lisa theme is Alti, etc. etc. Even the main theme arrangement isn't his. <br><br>I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him, that's not the problem. Those aren't his strengths, it's not a big deal. Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes. He's also good at organising his talent. The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me.There's no news on that at all. Not on Google or IMDb. What's your source?Powell's gonna have longer than 5 five weeks now, movie just got pushed back to October.I see now why they got Lorne to score Terminator, the guy's friggin' unstoppable.

Good morning,

I'm a theatrical director and I have to produce a musical play of "The Prince of Egypt", so I would buy the instrumental OST of this film. I really hope you can help me! Waiting for an answer, thank's a lot!

I am writer and producer and work as a pastor in the reformed church of Basel, Switzerland. We will produce a "Night of Faith" here in Basel in 2013. Nina Hagen is there and many others, too. I am responsible for a concert called "Prayers" with orchestra, solists and choir. We will sing prayers from musicals, operas etc. I am looking for the complete orchestra notes including choir and solos of "There can be miracles" from Prince of Egypt. But I can't find it. Where can we buy it? Anyone any idea?
Thanks a lot

Hello team, I have a dilemma and the only was I saw fit to resolve it was to contact as close to Zimmer as possible..

I'm a member of the Henry Brass Band in Stockbridge, GA, USA and we're looking for contemporary music to perform on a professional level. I thought about the Crysis 2 original soundtrack and the heavy brass involved in the songs.

Where could I possibly get a copy of the score for any of the songs, purchasing or without compensation?

Please keep in mind I'm not trying to solicit or trade, I only wish to either retrieve knowledge about how this works, and/or any of the scores.

Thanks,
Ryan

Wouldn't you think this person "DESERVES" to be in your team ???

Please search "Marco Cerbella plays "AVATAR - Jake's First Flight", James Horner (D-Deck, Electone)"

Go here and count how many different movies there are (only those with "composer" in the brackets), and that should be the number:

Hallo Herr Zimmer,
ich weiß, daß die Chancen null-komma-eins stehen sie persönlich an die Tastatur oder ans Telefon zu bekommen, aber ich probiere es doch einmal aus als Landsmann. Mein Name ist Hanjo Gäbler und ich bin seid ich Teenager bin ein großer Fan Ihrer Musik. Ich bin Berufsmusiker seid ich 19 Jahre alt bin und jetzt quasi mit 34 auch in der Filmmusik angekommen. Ich würde Sie gern einmal um Gehör bitten und ein bis zwei Fragen stellen. Hätten Sie unwarscheinlicher Weise einmal Zeit für mich? Nur 2-3 Minuten?
mit freundlichen Grüßen, Ihr Hanjo Gäbler

hello, I am not Hans Zimmer, but I think know the answer to your question: unfortunately people at RCP have the policy not to open music cds that they get from random people because of a fear of copyright issues. Even if you send them your cd they will have to return it to you unopened. And all that because a long time ago some amateur composer sent his work to some movie composer and the movie composer used his music as his own and later got sued for it by that amateur composer who proved that he stole his music. And because of that they have to return cds unopened.

Does anybody know anything about the scoring / soundtrack from the science documentary series called Through the Wormhole - the credits state Zimmer, Shea and Kofsky to be involved with the music. I'm desperatly looking for some of the music from the series - they remind me alot of Chevalier De Sangreal. They are used in season 2, episode 1 at 40:00 and season 3, episode 4 at 34:50(you can youtube them)

Thx in advance for any answer :)

Does anyone know if Zimmer will be scoring next summer's "The Lone Ranger". Gore Verbinski is directing it, who used Zimmer for all 3 Pirates and Rango. Seems like he would fit the role


Pawel Stroinski2012-08-10 02:10:26
No, the score is written by Jack White (of the White Stripes)


Mr. Charles2012-08-10 03:16:21
Whaaaat?!?!?!

Bummer. But I cannot judge. I know who The White Stripes are. They're ok. Hopefully the score will be good

As someone who is not quite sure about the legalities of this particular situation, I understand that this might be a stupid question.
Anyway, I would like to use part of the soundtrack to Inception in a YouTube video, but I understand I need some sort of permission. Is it enough to credit Hans Zimmer as the creator of the song and provide an Itunes link, or will I need to do something a little more formal?
My name is in my YouTube account, should you need to message me and the video in question has not been made yet.

Muldfeld reply Replies: 0 || 2012-07-26 10:00:39
I purchased your "The Dark Knight Rises" score a day ago and was very angry to find out that there are all kinds of online exclusives. My CD was made in Canada and contains no download code or anything of the sort and is only 51 minutes. I understand your wanting to experiment with apps and stuff (I don't own a cell phone), but the fact that you were able to have other tracks that could easily and should easily have fit onto the CD, as they do on itunes and other sites, signals that you are exploiting your fans.

I always pay artists for their work; I buy DVDs and I buy the great music of Mark Snow and Bear McCreary. This was the first CD of yours I bought and it may be the last. I feel betrayed as a customer who never wanted to steal from an artist I respected, but you tempt me with these devious tactics.

In late 1980's I was in a choir that performed an oratorio I think was by Mr Zimmer. It was a world premier and under the direction of Dr. Robert Berglund at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis, MN. Do you know what the name of the oratorio?
