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.

Dear Hans...I Love Music - music has always been a main part of my life. The soundtrack from the DaVinci Code is very good, but the one song - Chevaliers de Sangreal brings tears to my eyes every time I listen to it. I turn my volume up loud and let your music take me away. Just wanted you to know that although you have millions of fans, there is one that truly loves your work. thank you. Dianne (Canada)

Hello

My name is Mark Batch and I have recently graduated with a Ba Hons degree from The University of Central Lancashire (Preston). I am 21 years old and originally from Gillingham Dorset. I am a multi-instrumentalist being skilled on the keyboard, piano, guitar, bass and drums. I play in 2 gigging bands. One based in Preston (soon to end) and one based in Salisbury. The Salisbury based band playing functions, weddings etc. I am also a keen composer and writer recording many songs at home in a small studio set up. I have done this for many years and am well experienced. I also make small miniature films for friends and for personal enjoyment.



I am writing to you as I have recently graduated this summer and am looking for work or work experience to give me an insight in to this field. To give me experience and knowledge in the music, media world.

My aim (dream) in life is to work within some form or radio or television. Editing, composing music are large passions of mine. My ultimate dream job is to write the music for television shows and to write Radio Jingles for radio companies such as yourself.

As i'm sure you are aware, this industry is incredibly hard to get in to and I am simply looking for a way to start to make this profession real.

While at University my plan/aim afterwards was to go in to teaching. However, while at university I discovered a new passion for radio, and the realisation that this dream job may not be as far away as I first thought. I am therefore exceptionally passionate and willing to give my all to this career. I feel that I am well equipped with basic knowledge. I am also friendly, punctual and reliable.



Speaking off the record, I would just really appreciate this chance that if nothing else I could just come up for the day and see how your company works and operates.



Thank you for reading this and giving me the opportunity.

Yours thankfully



Mark Batch

I think some of Hanz Zimmer's music is being used illegaly. Follow this link to a trailer and listen to the closing credits, this is the music from Hanz's Gladiator soundtrack:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LdK5jvX7cg

If they have paid a license fee to use this then fine if not then now you know.

Eine schöne Internetseite - ausgesprochen gelungen, wenn man von der traurigen Tatsache absieht, dass ein erfolgreicher deutscher Filmkomponist seine Seite lediglich in Englisch ausstellt.
Aber hey immerhin das Forum verweist noch auf eine französiche Ausgabe! Wozu sich also beschweren?
Ach ja - in english please?

I Love this site, but was dissappointed that "Green Card" wasn't mentioned. I LOVE the music that Hans Zimmer wrote for the movie "Green Card". I purchased the CD with the soundtrack for "Green Card" which I listen to frequently.

I'm curious if anybody else has noticed the eerily-identicalness of King Arthur's "Do You Think I'm Saxon?" (towards the later part) when compared to Dead Man's Chest "Hello Beastie." There are a couple of measures in there where it is the EXACT same setup, crescendos, and even tune and choir. I was very curious as to figure out what made Hans Zimmer use the same elements/tunes from King Arthur and use them on Dead Man's Chest. I wonder if he wasn't happy the first time, or realized it's potential after King Arthur was produced.
