Sounds like another case of a studio (Disney in this case, Ad Astra being one of those unfortunate projects that will get massacred as part of the 20th Century Fox re-alignment) ignoring the artistic decisions of a real filmmaker. <br><br>Ironic again that the go-to-hack Balfe is taking this on. Does the man have no shame in just becoming a plumber that plugs holes in a monolithic studio's attempts to make any film with a semblance of artistic credibility appear 'commercial'? Guess it suits one's talents and approach to the 'art' of the scoreLorne 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 everywhereI 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 2I 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.

Seehr geehrter Hans Zimmer,

mein name ist Jonathan und ich bin 15 Jahre alt.
Ich finde ihre Filmmusik einfach nur genjal!
Ich spiele selbst Klarinette und Alt Sax. (Ich spiele fast nur Stücke von ihnen in meiner Freizeit. Am liebsten Pirates of the Caribbean "Up is Down")
Ich drehe im Moment mit meinen Freunden einen Abenteuer film es handelt sich um fünf Ritter die versuchen einen Magier zu stürzen. Ich will aber keine Filmmusik klauen und habe desshalb versucht mein eigenes Stück zu komponieren. (Das ging voll in die Hose - wenn ich das so sagen darf- !
Wenn ich nun jemeanden beauftragen würde, dann würde dass aber ne ganze Stange geld kosten. Können Sie mir da vielleicht helfen?
Wenn ja können Sie mir auf diese Adresse zurück schreiben:

horsesrider@web.de

Viele Grüße aus dem Schwarzwald

Jonathan Jehle

I am a ravenous fan of the scores to the new Batman films. I am WarlokLord from the FSM forums, btw. I was hoping someone might have a line on the *film order* of the material on the 2CD set of The Dark Knight... a number of us (fans) wish to listen to the expanded soundtrack in as close to film order as possible - as always to preserve the emotional ride. I personally have been holding off listening to The Dark Knight until I gain such information from somehwere. Sometimes I would endeavour to place the music in film order myself, but the track titles and the vast array of tracks themselves seem to make that a daunting task. I was hoping anybody might have some leads on an official film order for myself and cohorts? Thanks for any help and your time.

Hey! I am Addison Butler and I live in America. Today, I was walking home from school, listening to the fine works of Mr. Hans Zimmer, and I realized, wow! This guy wrote every note for every instrument for each piece! I am 12 years old and I play the Trombone (Trombone girls rock!) at my middle school. So anyway, I was walking home, and I just stopped there, and savored the sensation of his music, and then there I was, looking like a total retard with my eyes shut. It was then that I just had a wierd craving to touch the original sheet music for Run Free (Spirit, Stallion of the Cimmaron) (It's my favorite song of all time).

I like hip hop, but I prefer his music over anything else. He went to highschool with my uncle, Andy Hause. And now my uncle hates him because he thought Hans cheated off of him in some class.

So anyway, I was just wondering if anyone could get his email adress.

Hi Mr. Zimmer. My name is Jenny and I go to LaGrange College in GA. I am writing a research paper on composers for my one theatre class. Our professor Dr. Edwards suggested we try to get in touch with people in our chosen fields, and I figured it was worth a shot to try to contact you. I just have a few simple questions, and would greatly appreciate it if you had to the time to contact me! jecrawford@lagrange.edu Thank you!

I really don´t know if I´m able to reach Hans from here, but It´s worth the try. So if you do read this Mr. Zimmer I would have a question for you about using your music in my movies. I make mainly animation series and I was planning to use your music in them, so I am requesting your approval for that. I undestand that if I do so without your approval, it would be illegal to publish my movies. For more information and for your reply, here´s my e-mail "Horrepaakkonen@hotmail.com" I hope you´ll reply to this message

Would you kindly advise how to obtain permission to use the song Chevaliers de Sangreal by Hans Zimmer? We are just finalizing completion of a website, in Canada, which will be directed toward children and adolescents who are struggling with mental illnesses, such as depression, anxieties, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, etc. The site will be kid-friendly, raising awareness to the need for change, encouraging both the adolescents and their families to understand that it's OK to be blue, it's OK to talk about depression, etc, and introducing education about mental health in youth, working toward removal of STIGMA in society.
Chevalier de Sangreal is a most powerful, moving piece of work and we envision the possible making of a video clip with visual images of the ocean, waves, struggling youth at the water's edge, sending a message of HOPE to Ride the Blue Wave. Not to give up, that you can overcome, seek help and return to health. The Foundation is called Blue Wave and the website will be ok2bblue.com, hoping to launch end Oct 08.
Your advice re permission to use the song would be very much appreciated. Kindest regards and God bless!
