Lorne has nothing to do with interstellarGITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere
I think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.
Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*

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

Dear Mr Zimmer:
My name is Marcela, I´m writting to you from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I have fallen in love with the melodies you composed for “The Holiday” Soundtrack.
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.
I dream of metting you someday,
Lot´s of love!

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.

Dear Hans,

So I know you probably have WAY too many people trying to contact you and get you to go check out their music, and if I was in your shoes, I know I wouldn't have time to look at everyone's work. But I think you might be quite interested in some of the work I have done. I'm not a genius, nor a prodigy like many, but one thing I know I'm good at as a composer is writing a memorable theme. And I ask you to please take a mere 5 minutes of your time, check out my compositions, and let me know what you think. You could tell me it sucks if you want, and that I'm wasting your time. All in all, I just really want to know from the perspective of a professional like yourself, if I really have what it takes to make it in this business. You can hear my work at www.myspace.com/mraetzel. My email address is matt_raetzel@hotmail.com. Thanks Hans, and I really hope to hear from you!

Dear Hans,

Your music brings feelings up from the inside, you have writen many incredible songs. I'm only 15 years old, and many people thinks that i'm a guy who listens to rap and all those crap who is made, but no. They looks weird, when i tell i'm listening to your and other componist's formidable work. I thank the lord, for bringing you to earth, and i thank you for making this indescribable piece of work, you've made.

Salute Alexander S.
