Most of the album is comprised of suites, with one consistent tempo per track. <br><br>The material that was scored to picture was scored using the risset rhythm technique, which gave a lot of those tracks their "infinitely getting faster" feeling in the film, so the tempo is always climbing in the film versions. The suites have a stable tempo (except for a couple normal tempo changes, which are different)Not really any... "Nothing Out There" contains the sad piano theme from Begins and Dark Knight, but otherwise the themes that get reprised are pretty much Hans stuff. <br><br>Speaking of credits, any chance the complete score page could be updated with what's out there and official?Could somebody tell me in what cues JNH's themes appear on album?Thanks MIKE, Any ideas of how can I Google it?Yeah, that cue was either a last minute rewrite or one of the music editors did it.... As for where you can find it...Google is your friend. But it's not going to be available anywhere officially.
I think it will be in between NOT ORDINARY CITIZEN / THE SLOW KNIFE and IMAGINE THE FIRE, Does anybody know where can I find it?<br>I noticed that this score doesn't has the soundtrack of the part where Blake is taking the people to the bridge and he is discusing with the other police officer before he blows the bridgeThat's right, I forgot about that... And I totally agree about the score vs. the album. I had no use for this score on album at first, but now that I've watched the movie a few times, I can really hear the logic behind the score and I "get it." <br><br>I still don't get the music as heard on album, though. Are the longer pieces some early suites Hans wrote? Or did he specifically make these arrangements for the album? Do you know the answer to that one, Hybrid?I wanna say I heard the full Cat Suite somewhere... I can't remember if it was legit, but it was 15:39 and it was indeed quite repetitive. It was basically the Selina Kyle Suite from the Z+ app, along with demos of several of the Catwoman-related cues in the final score. If you've listened through the score, you've basically heard the unreleased stuff.@Mike<br>Zimmer has said in interviews that he “mapped out” the film with one long piece of music to establish the changing tempo of the story, and apparently the script was written to capture the rhythmic feel of the film. So from the very beginning the story was always split up between the three.<br><br>I think a big part of the initial disappointment with the score was the album presentation, which gives off the impression that the music is just some sound design that Zimmer threw together (this is how I personally felt when I first gave it a listen). In actuality it’s a technically impressive score, I really can’t think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a film’s tempo and flows as one long piece of music. Apparently it was a nightmare for Hans, especially when the smallest edits to the film would ruin the flow.<br><br>Doing the 59-minute album was a pretty big disservice to the whole purpose of the music. If you remove one piece the whole thing falls apart, which is part of the reason the album feels so disjointed.
Anyone here listened "The Predator" FYC score? <br>Any chance to compare tracklist and running time with official release?These versions suites haven't been officially released, but maybe you can find them somewhere around the Internet unofficially.<br><br>As for the Cat Suite, the most important parts of it can be found in "Selina Kyle" (it's a shortened version of it actually) and "Mind if I cut in?" from the OST. I remember that Hybrid once said that the 15mins Cat Suite was too repetitive, that's why a 5min only version was released, so maybe you are just fine with those two.<br>Where can I listen to the Cat Suite? Or is it literally: Selina Kyle Theme? <br>The Mole P1 (0-1:57)<br>Regimental Brothers P1 (0-1:19)<br>The Mole P2 (1:57-3:44)<br>Regimental Brothers P3 (2:44 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier<br>Supermarine P1 (0-2:47)<br>The Mole P3 (3:45 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back (again) <br>Supermarine P2 (*5:33)<br>Impulse<br>The Tide<br>Home <br>The Oil <br>Variation 15<br>End Credits <br><br>As everyone said already, the album is made up of suites that combine several cues and several "sounds" used in various places. For example, the is a sound in The Mole (At 2:05) that sounds like a fuse being ignited. This sound is actually right after The Tide in the film.<br>The only tracks that are almost identical to the film are: The Tide, Variation 15 and End Credits, the rest is different. <br><br>So if you were to order the tracks as first heard in the film it would be: <br>The Mole <br>Regimental Brothers <br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier <br>Supermarine <br>Impluse <br>The Tide <br>Home <br>The Oil<br>Variation 15<br>End credits<br><br>As much as I enjoyed listening to this release, I wish they didn't butcher the score the way they did. I like the suites but there are so many great cues in this film that weren't released. If only they released an isolated score track on Blu-ray. Listening to film extracts is just not enough.I noticed that as well — the ticking goes all through the movie, except for the boat scenes, and only stops when they get on the train. <br><br>I wonder...could the film have originally been shot so that the beach, sea, and air sequences were there own arcs, and the longer album tracks were written for that? And then Nolan went in and turned the movie into the frenetic, constantly cutting-back-and-forth final product? <br><br>While the album is fine, I personally don't understand why we couldn't have just gotten the film cues. They might have had to stitch several together for each track, but it could have worked.
Does anyone know where you can get a digital version of the Japanese versions 2 bonus tracks?Comparing it to YFM’s sfx edit this is what I’ve got;<br><br>“The Mole” seems to be an alternate of the opening sequence. The first minute or so is used, while the rest isn’t. “We Need Our Army Back/Regimental Brothers” are both made up of several cues from different points in the film. <br>“Home” is completely different in the film, which makes me think it may have been recorded specifically for the album. Similar situation with “Oil”. <br>“Supermarine” is definitely a suite. The rest is chronological.<br><br>Interesting thing to note, it seems like a lot of the tempo changes/ticking effects/bass overlays were removed from the album release, making almost every track sound different from the actual film versions. The music in context has a constant pulse going, especially in the way cues segue into each other and change tempo.It's not really possible to chronologically order the album because the album doesn't use the same tracks as the movie. Plus, the album is more or less chronological anyway, given the areas where they are the same.<br>With the complete cue sheet out now. Does anyone know what the chronological order of the album would be?Movie credits:<br><br>Music Composed and Mixed by:<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Additional Music:<br>ANTONIO DI IORIO<br><br>Music Supervisor:<br>DAVE JORDAN<br><br>Music Editor:<br>PETER MYLES<br><br>Score Conducted by:<br>CONRAD POPE<br><br>Score Orchestrated by:<br>EDWARD TRYBEK, HENRI WILKINSON, JONATHAN BEARD, TOM HOLKENBORG<br>Score Copied by:<br>EDWARD TRYBEK, HENRI WILKINSON<br><br>Score Contracted by:<br>PETER ROTTER<br><br>Choir Contracted by:<br>JASPER RANDALL<br><br>Score Recorded by:<br>ALAN MEYERSON, BRAD HAEHNEL<br><br>Digital Recording by:<br>KEVIN GLOBERMAN<br><br>Technical Score Engineers:<br>ALEX RUGER, EMILY RICE,<br><br>Synth Programming by:<br>JACOPO TRIFONE, JONAS FRIEDMAN, MAX KARMAZYN<br><br>Score Recorded at:<br>NEWMAN RECORDING STAGE<br><br>Music Production Services by:<br>MICHIEL GROENEVELD<br><br>Score Mixed at:<br>COMPUTER HELL CABIN<br><br>Newman Stage Engineer:<br>MARC GEBAUER<br><br>Newman Recordist:<br>TIM LAUBER<br><br>Newman Stage Managers:<br>DAMON TEDESCO, PETER NELSON

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.
Hochachtungsvoll Arjang

Hi Hans Zimmer,
I am Junaid Khawaja from Pakistan a big fan of your movie, game and theatre soundtracks. I am not a musician, music composer, lyricist, singer or anything else like that. I am just a song lover and writing this to you because I just love your music. I am crazy to have all of that. I maintain a list of your works at SoundCloud.com nothing more than that.
I don’t offer to download music freely. I just share the sounds to my SoundClouds’ profile from other public profiles. I can’t afford to buy your soundtracks. I am just writing to you because I want to listen all the work of you and will never share it to someone or upload to the profiles it’s my promise. Can I have all the soundtracks produced by you?
Love from Pakistan. I would love to hear from you as soon as possible.
Please,

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.

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.

Hello. Hans Zimmer created much (but not all) of the music for the 1986 Nicholas Roeg film "Castaway." So I'm wondering if Mr Zimmer composed the beautiful and delicate flute segment that can be heard from 1:24:35 to 1:25:44 during the movie #####

If the answer is yes, what is the name of the song? (And is it available for purchase anywhere?) Many thanks!

Hey there guys, especially HZ.com team. This will be pretty unusual request, and also a really naive one, I imagine. See, I am working on a lecture for a biggest fantasy-sci-fi-horror-popculture convention in Czech and Slovak republic, called Istrocon. This lecture is about Hans Zimmer and his work.
So, here's the thing: my big dream about ending of this lecture is a video of Hans himself. Not just any video, though. It would be a video, where Hans would say something directly to the visitors of the convention. Something like "Hello visitors of Istrocon, my name is Hans Zimmer and I hope you enjoyed this lecture about my work." That's all.
Now, I understand that this idea is terribly, terribly naive. I understand that Hans is a terribly busy man and he doesn't have time to play around. But something like this would make a killing ending to my lecture.
I know that Hybrid and the other membersof the HZ.com team probably won't pay much attention to this post, but I simply had to try. If you could by some miracle contact Hans, you would have my eternal gratitude.

Hi... just hoping you can tell Mr. Zimmer that his Hans have the midas touch.... If possible please let me know what you think of these two amateur compositions... they were made using the sounds available in Pro Tools 10.... pretty authentic if you ask me, but definitely not the real thing... If you have a second please criticize... keep in mind I can't read music and have never been trained... Lastly, I know this is a long shot... Does anyone know how to apply to be an apprentice of Zimmer. To be honest I'd be the guy who gets scones and tea, if it meant I could get even the tiniest bit of tutorage... Again, please remind Mr. Zimmer his talent and eagerness to explore the branches of music and sound has definitely caught my attention and changed my compositions for the better! Fingers crossed, Tschüss...

I would appreciate the criticism... if there is some misunderstanding on my end, please help clear it up... not trying to impose.


NM2013-06-17 08:13:46
I'll give an honest critique to a fellow musician. I listened, they're not bad, the second one is kind of nice, the first a bit boring. They sound earnest rather than being the terrible Zimmer clones most people on youtube shit out ("I have some drums and a french horn sample, I'm a composer!")

You mention you can't read music/don't have much musical knowledge and to be honest, it is pretty obvious from the structure of your compositions. I don't see why that should be "born in mind", as though a concession should be granted. You don't necessarily *need* theory, no, but the progressions, orchestration and arrangement are very simple and predictable and it doesn't really feel like the music develops. You have some decent basic ideas in there, but you don't explore them or add any depth to them. Anyone half-decent at writing music could've written both those pieces in about an hour without much effort.

Keep going with it though. Hope that's useful.


David Young2013-06-17 21:22:46

Have previewed MoS OST and it's garbage. Thanks Hans for screwing it up! Every piece sounds the same as the last, and the same as the last bunch of Zimmer crap scores. Ostinato strings repeated over and over and over and over again, long brass swells with overblown horn parts, pounding and heavily overused percussion - and nothing, and I mean NOTHING, interesting thematically. They really should have got somebody with some musicality like Giacchino to do this one. You, sir, are a hack.


Ds2013-06-04 21:31:07
Clearly you don't like Zimmer's style. Why are you here then?


Jim...again.2013-06-04 21:38:27
...and what the HELL is with the cue "This is Madness"??? Oh, it's madness, alright. The preview is a full minute of the same one-bar snare drum rhythm with a bass drum on the downbeat every second bar. Seriously? This is the kind of crap you come up with? Because if all there is to writing a film cue these days is a one-bar snare drum rhythm, well geez man, where do I sign up? I could pump out a couple hundred cues a day. Y'know, I really used to look forward to new movies as much for the score as the movie itself if not more so in many cases. You have ruined that for me for many recent films. Now I find myself knowing that as soon as I see "Music by Hans Zimmer" there will be nothing to enjoy as far as the score is concerned.


Jim2013-06-04 21:40:27
Where else would I vent my frustration? These comment pages are not solely for the purpose of stroking egos.


Macejko2013-06-04 21:45:33
Go to hell with Giacchino, that man has not composed anything interesting in his life.


Ds2013-06-04 21:50:33
Some people adore Giacchino because he's kind of the reincarnation of John Williams' old fashioned style. But i tend to agree with you Macejko.

Jim: your opinion is a little harsh, considering you've only heard 60 to 90 seconds of each track.


Jim2013-06-04 21:51:50
Lol, right Macejko...I mean, if you don't enjoy musical and well-developed thematic material, varied and balanced instrumentation, appropriate use of percussion (as opposed to the crutch Zimmer uses it as) and actual musicality, and instead can only deal with the same boring repeated ostinato garbage over and over again, I can see how you might prefer Zimmer over Giacchino.


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-04 21:59:19
lol, Macejko...Giacchino is easily one of the most talented composers of the last decade.


Jim2013-06-04 22:01:17
I've heard enough to know it's exactly the same kind of monotonous, trite, boring crap as he came up with for TDK. Again...ostinato strings, brass swells, pounding and overused percussion, no themes whatsoever and way too repetitive. Zimmer's music is background noise - more akin to sound effects than music. It's an aside. An afterthought. A backdrop. A shadow. A score should be so much more than this IMHO. His do nothing for me. They don't speak to me at all. Don't communicate anything. It's canned and boring, soulless and dry. If MoS is a great movie, it will be in spite of the soundtrack.


Macejko2013-06-04 22:06:49
Well, my guess is that he's not gonna change this style anytime soon, so you can leave this place in peace and listen to whatever "quality" music you listen to.


Jim2013-06-04 22:12:39
Sure...except I have to put up with his crap, don't I? Believe me, I wanted to love the MoS soundtrack. I heard Zimmer was doing it and I prayed it wasn't going to be more of the same junk of his like TDK. Boy, am I let down. Come on people...we need to demand better than this.

Jim, i guess it's only a matter of taste. I love the samples and i usually love Zimmer's scores. I think they are powerful, majestic and highly emotional. His music really speaks to me.

Talking about TDK's soundtrack do you wanna refer to the Joker theme?

background noise? well that is, sometimes, quite enough to make a huge soundtrack. I don't consider Reznor's Social Network soundtrack as a great, outstanding. To me it was just background noise yet it seems that a lot of people actually loved it.

and to be honest, to say he hasn't write anything good or great for a movie for a long time you really haven't listen to one of his last complete recording sessions.

Guitwo, yes the Joker theme is disturbing and noisy, but that is exactly how a mad man(chaotic and anarchic) such as Joker should sound like. And speak of TR's Social Network, I admit it's not enjoyable but again it's the only type of music to fit the movie and I believe that's the reason they get an Oscar.


Guitwo2013-06-05 06:07:39
i didn't mean nothing but what you've just said pale. the point is that it's a matter of what music fits best the movie then it's a matter of taste for music.

Say what you want in defense of Zimmer, but I do like Michael Giacchino--not because he sounds like Williams, but simply because he's a good composer.

Herr Zimmer,

You're probably a frogging jew.
But I love everything you do.
Especially the Thin Red Line soundtrack.
Don't ever stop.

Sincerely h
