I agree that Elfman's theme fits into Nolan's films as long as they are adapted to them. However, I think the way things have gone was not bad. TDK trilogy was marked as a project fruit of Nolan's unique vision. Although the themes do not respect the orchestral tradition are more memorable than those composed for more than half of the films of heroes of the last 25 years.Zimmer's entry into the genre can be interpreted as a breath of fresh air in a saturated marketplace at the time. But I agree that the lack of originality these days falls on Zimmer and his company and that the goal of it goes far beyond bringing talents to light.Now we need something new, again.@Hybrid any news on Season 2 soundtrack release?Of cause Balfe worked on it !!! His whole team are credited !!!!!!!Honestly, the purpose of RCP is essentially to take Zimmer's style and make it widespread for use...WB not using ANY RCP to score this seems to have been deliberate, as there's literally no reason it couldn't be done.^ hahaha :D<br><br>I think you're forgetting that Balfe also ghostwrote The Lord of the Rings?
They're starting to send screeners. Finger crossed for the FYC :DThe score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmer’s Superman theme, something we haven’t heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.
I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.and Zimmer criticized Elfman...back and forth, etc. So what? The movie is lame, the score is about as lame as Bat V Sup
@JBSO99 you're right. It's so big and widely spread.<br><br>And you're right about me forgetting those score. I just picked these three because Elfman critized Zimmer@Iamtommie  You forgot the theme by Elliot Goldenthal for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, for not to mention the theme from the 60's TV show and all the themes for all the different animated motion pictures such as The Dark Knight Returns, Mask of the Phantasm, or the videogames like the Arkham series.<br><br>Batman's musical legacy is very big so him saying there is only one theme and his the one he created is really disrespectful to a big amount of composers.Yeah, that's what I thought you meant. And that's what Elfman should have done if he wanted to use the old themes.I think what Elfman said is not true.<br>Batman has different themes for different movies because every Batman is different.<br><br>Michael Keaton as Batman: Elfman's Theme<br>Christian Bale as Batman: Hans' Theme<br>Ben Affleck as Batman: Hans & Junkie's Theme.<br>Of course much more but the most important.<br><br>Each one if dies Batman's have a different story and a different universe. I think that for each universe a new theme is the best thing you can do. With a different theme you can relate more to this Batman than a previous one.<br><br>By the way, I think TDK, MoS & WW are 3 of the top 10 themes by Zimmer. I think what Elfman did the WW theme is an abomination. He removed the key instrument in the theme because he thought it was childisch.<br><br>I think the Justce League score is way worse than previous DCEU or Batman movies. I hope that Lorne of Junkie will do future DCUE movies instead of Elfman.<br><br>(Seeing Justice League thursday. I am curious if it is really that bad as everyine says)GITS was unreleased, JXL's JL score was completely rejected. The real qustion is how many rejected scores have leaked in the history of modern film scoring?

hans -

i wouldn't feel right visiting this page and not expressing to you the impact your music has had on my life. To be more specific, the musical score from Gladiator and how profoundly powerful and true to the film it really was. 14 years later and I still consider it the best musical score of any movie I've ever seen (my opinion, of course). The success of that film is attributed to your musical genius. Thank you for pouring your heart and soul in to your work and wishes to you for your continued success.

I just worked my butt off,for 2 weeks-and then i read the RULES ! You are not in the competition if you are NOT a citizen of these countries ; 2.4 This Competition is open to residents of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada (excluding Quebec), Germany and Sweden only Im living in my native Copenhagen,9 km from Sweden-and that fact disqalify´s me from the contest ! Just be shure you know these "rules" before youre get youre hopes up ! I simply find Hans Zimmer FRAUDULENT when he says "Come-ALL composers-I Want You ! Hans Zimmer DONT want you if youre not from those-seemingly arbitrary countries ! Good Luck (with that name-youll need it!)


Annie2014-03-10 01:43:04
Really? It took you two weeks to rework this? Then you're clearly wrong for this job anyway because over here in LA you have to write a minimum of 2 minutes a day, for TV even more - in the same quality as that competition piece.

Also, don't call him fraudulent, please. They clearly marked the rules, it's your fault for not reading them beforehand. Lashing out at him and his peers for your mistake is not fair. Also, I'm guessing that the reason for the country restrictions is simply a VISA reason - it is very hard to get in the US so I'm guessing they have some go-to people for these specific countries. For all other countries, it would probably simply be too hard or expensive to get a VISA.

Now peace, please.

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,

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,

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!
Cody

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;
