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

I'm a fan of Hans Zimmer and his music. I don't know if you guys have real contact with him, but if you do please let him know this. In Chile, my country, there is a television serie called "Primera dama"... it sucks. It aired on "canal 13" (channel 13) around 8 pm, the story is crap but what I hate most is that they use Zimmer's music on the show, like from "modern warfare 2", "the dark knight" and others. I'm pretty sure they don't pay for copyrights.
Congrats on the webpage, it's very good.

Dear Hans, and the whole team!

I would like to give all of you a really big R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
I had know at the Batman Begins that you are some kinda masterpiece-generator machine, but at the TDK and now, the Inception OST…

I have to say: you made my life better with your amazing, fascinating, dark, cold, strong, genius, new and (in some part, like the Joker themes) experimental music. That is the real music. Really, thank you. Oh, and of course, you made all of the movies better. When in the TDK, at the „Then you’re gonna love me” scene… Man, that’s incredible!

I really don’t know what to say, you gave me some much emmotions. I know The Dark Knight soundtrack like my own hand. Thank you.

All of you.

Respect. You are really artists.

Benjámin Terdik, from Hungary

One may only experience the sublimely beautiful nature of the ugly truth, when one chooses to fully perceive & accept the blinding beauty which attracts us to lies. Hans scores remind me of what my brain may feel like in the minutes or seconds before a plane crashes into the ground. Not fear, but sensory overload, I think many times it detracts from the secret truths, hidden in plain sight in these films. IE Titanic, The Aviator, The Departed, Blood Diamond, Shutter Island, Inception, BM Begins, BM Dark Knight, to name a few of my favorite. (Not all Zimmer Scores, but they all tell a linear tale of super secret conspiracy)

Hello Remote Control Productions (antas@hans-zimmer.com)

Well, tonight my wife and I went to see "Inception". We left with the following:
1. The music was totally OVER PRODUCED. What I mean by that is; "Sometimes LESS IS MORE". I mean, their were numerous scenes where it was so distracting, so over-bearing... it was stupid.

2.Numerous scenes should not have has any music at all, thus making the actors of the moment more dramatic and believable. We asked ourselves... "is this for real"?

2. We loved Hans score/composition for "The Last Samurai"... but felt that much of the score to "Inception" was just a continuation of the same. Sure, composers have styles, but this was ridiculous. It was so predictable after the first 30 minutes... we just wanted it to go away.

3. The dub stage audio mixers must have been on Crack. It was so difficult to hear dialog because the pounding music score was "Over The Top"- literally. We thought we went to see a movie, it appears we went to a lesson in sound sampling and drowning orchestra. C'mon Hans, you can do better.

Knowing that this post will most likely never make to public viewing... We'll blog it elsewhere as to inform future movie go-ers to at the very least: "Buy Ear Plugs".

Sorry Hans, but this time you MISSED IT. Go back to the Drawing Board. Remember, it is a FILM your writing/scoring for, not testament to your own skills.

Hello,

I firstly would like to say a couple of things about me, so that you can hopefully have a better understanding of my comments. I am an aspiring Director in LA, even if this is the worst time since the great depression to be in this industry. I've done a few small projects here and there and though I've grown up with movies my whole life (hence, the profession choice) it wasn't until film school that I started to make a list of all of my favorite film score composers. I began listening to all kinds of soundtracks and it was an interesting journey.

I started out the same way as at least 80% of people out there, saying that "John Williams was the best! Come on, Star Wars, Superman, Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones, and who can say that the soundtrack for Jurassic Park wasn't one of the best soundtracks of all time!" John Williams is a brilliant composer and is definitely one of the greatest of all time, but after leaving the shallow end of the "composer pool", I noticed that I was a big fan of Danny Elfman, (Batman, Edward Scissor-hands, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.) James Horner, (Titanic, Avatar, Aliens, Braveheart,etc.), Jerry Goldsmith (Rudy, Star Trek, Alien, etc.) and many more big names. BUT, I found myself coming back to one composer over and over again.

To sit here and just type in the list of great soundtracks would be pointless, since you can easily find it on IMDb (as well as myself, but not worth your time) or anywhere else on the internet, but I am just going to mention a few. There have been at least a 2-3 dozen soundtracks that have been incredible throughout Mr. Zimmer’s filmography, but it was the "Gladiator" soundtrack that stopped me. That soundtrack became an integral part of the way I thought about the movie making process as a Director. It opened a flood door of trying to collect, listen, and compare as many Hans Zimmer soundtracks as I could. The next phase was with the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks. I found the 3rd movie's soundtrack (At World’s End) as the best and it joined "Gladiator" atop to list. Finally, "The Last Samurai". This soundtrack was innovative and seemed like Mr. Zimmer was “out of his element”, so to speak, but found the challenge of creating music of a different culture new and exciting and it came across very much in the writing.

The reason I have Mr. Zimmer at the very top of my “Favorite Composers of All Time List”, isn’t because he’s mainstream and popular, and it isn’t because he keeps getting teamed with brilliant Directors (even though he is); it IS because I understand that he is unbelievably talented and has a way of making the music he scores come to life. Sure people say that all the time, “the music is supposed to be that way dummy!” It’s more than that with his music. People don’t fully appreciate film scores. You can tell me that you “love it and that it’s amazing” until you’re blue in the face, and I may agree with you; however, until you can comprehend WHY the music FEELS the way it does, EXPRESSES the EMOTION the way it does; and until you can grasp the concept, that someone (namely Mr. Zimmer) has been able to take the same air we breathe, capture it, mold it into tiny notes on a page, then translate these notes with the addition of dynamics, pitch, tone, resonance, and rhythm, into sounds that vibrate that tiny little bone inside your ear, setting off millions of synapses that then influence the chemical make-up of your brain, altering your state of mind and perception until you FEEL your mood start to fall into a trance strikingly similar to the way a cobra dances to the Snake Charmer’s flute. THEN, I’ll know that you understand the abilities, power, and downright magic that Mr. Zimmer possesses.

With all finally being said, I only wish to thank you Mr. Zimmer for the incredible work you do. For the brilliant and masterful way you have influenced how a story is told. Lastly, for the way your music has allowed not only the story, but life itself to enhance the way we perceive the world around us. I can only hope to have the privilege to work with you one day. Thank you.

A True Fan,
-B. Wayne Blackburn III-
