2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)
"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?
I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!
Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the scoreas for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feeling

You really threw down on the end credits for Sherlock Holmes - the final modulation coming out of the first cue that leads to the Irish ditty was absolutely fantastic.

Hans, I have been following your music since Gladiator and I even have "for Nancy" as a ringtone on my Iphone. What can I say, since I have that ringtone I smile inside everytime I get a call. Call me crazy but are the little things in life that makes it worthwhile... I have been finding myself looking, when a new movie trailer appear, the Music Composer credit to see if it is you: Now: It's complicated!
Thank you for your music... makes people like me very happy.

Hans,

Fellow composer here. You're pretty much the grandfather of the "BIG" hollywood sound. Much respect to you... I'm curious, did someone clone Steve Jablonsky after you,,, every theme I've ever heard of his mimics one of your themes... either from gladiator (the island) transformers (pearl harbor/the island) and those are the only two OST's i can think of coming from him. however... is this a bastard son we never knew about??? You're a good man

I hear them in my head all day long. They are just beautiful and I believe they are similar to what heaven might sound like. Your music is special, it is diferent, it really touches your heart.
Thanks for lighting up our lives with your music!!
I hope you continue to write great music.

Dear Hans,

these days I am fully in Hans Zimmer mode. Wherever I go, I have your music on my ears. Gladiator. Fantastic. Your incredible ability to put the exact emotions into vibrations is simply...... well, I am speechless. You have produced authentic feelings in me while listening to battle pieces. Like I am there in this very moment. It is even more interesting to me, since I research the expansion of consciousness, through integration of polarities, and this experience produced deep and genuine feelings - a pure jewel in my work.

I am completely overwhelmed with inspiration, joy and strong feelings. I and my every cell that has been enjoying these days - deeply bow to you!!

And looking to your site, I realize that I have just started to discover your work :-))

Greeting from Croatia

Dear M.Zimmer,
iam a shame to say that i only recently discoverd you and your music and i wish i could say that i folow your work for years but it is not the case.

However in the short time that it took me to folow your work and realy listen to it, i have to say that its nothing more than a divine privilege and only now i know that music can reach inside your soul and spark something deep that hide behind so much physical and emotional walls.In relevance to the movies aspect it work wonderful in a way that the music just somehow take you and pot you inside the drama and just make you feel apart of the movie.

The strongst feeling i ever got from any movie soundtrack was in " Chevaliers de Sangreal " ,that music that scene just changed something in me and i felt love and a very strong feel of sacrifice, long after iv seen the movie still every time that i hear that beautiful pice.... can make an adult man to almost cry from feelings that just awake in a spark.

thank you for the opportunity to enjoy such brilliant and deep emotions.

Dear Mr.Zimmer,
My name is Lea de Melo. I am a student in Year 11 at the International School of Geneva and taking the International Baccalaureate.
In Year 11, every student has to do a Personal Project which consists of taking responsibility for our own learning by researching and investigating a topic that interest us.
My Personal Project will attempt to answer the following question: “How does the soundtrack of a film enhance or manipulate the emotional response of the viewer?”
Mr Hand , my project supervisor and the Campus Principal, suggested I contact you because of your significant contribution to film soundtracks.
I play the piano and love film scores. For the practical / creative side of my project, I will be composing the soundtrack for a scene in a film being made by the Head of Performing Arts and some students. I thought it could be interesting to combine the two and learn about how composers go about their work and inform my own composition at the same time. I have already started conducting research by seeing how music enhances the emotion in a movie scene. I have also researched film composers and I am hoping to get some of their professional advice.
I was wondering if you would be willing to answer the few questions below so that I can try to understand and compare the different approaches to process and techniques composers use to create a film score.
1) What process(es) do you use in writing music for a film? Do you discuss the film first with the director? Do you read the script? Do you choose the scenes to be scored or does (s)he or is it a collaboration? Do you view the relevant scenes for your inspiration?
3) How do you choose the style of music you will adopt? Do you work thematically in terms of the whole film?
4) How do you choose the key, rhythm, tempo and dynamics?
5) How do you decide on the instrumentation? Do you believe that certain instruments stimulate or enhance certain emotions? Is the oboe, for example, a ‘plaintive’ instrument?
6) Do you think music can “cover up” a weak scene?
6) Has there been any time during which you were not inspired? How did you find inspiration?
7) What other advice can you give me?
If you would prefer to do this over skype we could conduct the interview verbally but that might be more time consuming for you.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you very much for your time.
Lea de Melo

Thanks for scoring MW2 so we don't get an option to turn the music off if we don't feel like hearing it. MW1's music team was as good if not better than your score.

Hello,
My name is Frances Rodriguez and I am senior president of Humanities High School located in Manhattan. I am in a drumming class that has very little but we try to manage with what we have. We are the main attraction for our christmas and spring concerts. We are 16 to 18 year old kids and our drum class is just 8 students. I believe anything is possible, as young as we may be, we aspire to some day entertain the world with music as you have. We love the enchantment of it and the joy in doing it. Today i write to you to ask for suggestions on how we can get new materials for our show. My school is struggling and we cannot afford great/new instruments. I ask of you even if you could donate one barrel it would be enough to make our show a blast. We have used paint buckets and desks and chairs and people love it because we can make it happen. I have written to Carlos Santana and last year him and his management sent us drum heads for our Christmas concert. I ask of you to please help us out in anyway possible even if its a suggestion we would greatly appreciate it. I have written to the president but unfortunately the office said that they could not act on it because i was writing on behalf of the school but now i just ask to please make my peers last year the best ever. We admire great musicians such as yourself and hope that in any way possible you can reach us. My email is FRANLRODRIGUEZ@AOL.COM,

Thanks for your time in hearing me out. Please write back with anything. Thanks again.
