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*

fun site, but too much confused. The menu is not so clear when I search "Hans Zimmer" I prefer to find Zimmer music first, not Zimmer productions and more.

I want to say to Zimmer that his music is absolutely amazing!I like so much Gladiator, The Rock theme and also Da Vinci Code (Cavaliers du Sangreal the best one!). Wonderful music...

Hans Zimmer, you inspire at every turn. What an age to be alive such as to be in the same time period as such truly inspired man.

I just wanted to pass along how much I enjoy Hans' music, as well as the website. It's a wealth of information for his fans, and it's also nice that there are profiles on some of the key musicians who Hans collaborates with as well.

One artist in particular, guitar virtuoso PETE HAYCOCK, has always been a favorite player of mine, and I applaud Mr. Zimmer for his great taste and judgment in choosing Mr. Haycock to add his considerable guitar talents to the several soundtracks they've worked on together. It was also great to hear many of these artists perform LIVE with Hans for the "Wings of a Film" concert; a lovely sampling of his great soundtrack work.

I was fortunate and blessed to have Pete Haycock provide all of the music for a documentary featurette I made recently about the Hollister Independence Rally, an annual motorcycle rally that has attracted more than 120,000 people to this small central California town for a 3-day celebration of "The Birthplace of the American Biker". The DVD is entitled "HOLLISTER 2005 -- THE OFFICIAL RALLY DVD", and Pete's music really raised the bar for the visuals to aspire to match. The DVD helps raise donations for a local Hollister-based shelter for abused women and children, and we were indeed grateful to Pete for his kind involvement.

Equally cool was the fact that this DVD project inspired Pete to go back to the studio and extend some tracks -- and add some others -- which resulted in his amazing recently-released 13-track CD entitled "BIKERS' DOZEN"!

For those of you who have enjoyed Hans' scores for "Drop Zone", "K-2", and "Thelma & Louise", among others, you'll likely recognize the sounds of Pete Haycock's magic fingers working the fretboards on several tracks. If you like that (and who doesn't?), then you should check out "BIKERS' DOZEN" -- it's a dynamic collection of some of the best guitar-driven compositions out there, and a must for any fan!

For more information about the Hollister Rally DVD, you can go to the Pelicam website at:
http://www.PelicamProductions.com

And, for more information or to order Pete's "BIKERS' DOZEN" CD, you can go to his official website at:
http://www.PeteHaycock.com

Thanks again, Hans, for all of the amazing soundtracks you've produced -- and that we've enjoyed -- over the years! Keep up the stellar work!

Best regards,

-- Jeff Byler

People don't waste your time on buying the Da Vinci Soundtrack. It is terrible. One of Hans worst. Very boring and had no theme to it. The only good song was #14 which wasn't by Hans. I will wait for the pirates soundtrack to come out before i give up hope on Hans.

Is e-mail for new information out of use ?
I could not find it in your site. So, I wrote here.

I found interviews.

Mark Mancina interview ( Japanese )
http://anime.excite.co.jp/blood/iv/iv_mark.html

He came to Japan for promotion ( Blood+ soundtrack ).
This soundtrack have a good reputation in Japan.
CD shops often pick up this CD by composer's name ( Hans Zimmer and Mark Mancina ).
It is rare in Japan.
I wish many Japanese know RC's music by this CD.
Regrettably many Japanese people don't care almost about soundtracks.
They don't even know composer's name.

People, you will not believe what horrific foundings came to me. I heard this song by Gustav Holst called Mars. A part of it sounds exactly like the battle theme in gladiator. Say it isn't so Hans. I had so much respect for you. Somebody please listen and tell me im wrong cuz i really liked Hans. Here is the link, listen to it all and you will be shocked!

we should create this page in german too, because Hans Zimmer is german nationality! I'm from Switzerland and can speak and write german, french and english. Maybe I could help you; creating Hans Zimmer Page(s) in german/french.

Truly loved the score, we purchased the DVD & "standard" OST CD! (it unfortunately leaves out alot of the songs & incidental music we really wanted to hear from several artists - Badly Drawn Boy, Maroon 5, Charles Trenet, you, etc - why was that?) Any plans for a "complete" expanded release of the OST?

Would love to get our hands on the expanded version, if at all possible. Please email responses to: ursammg@optonline.net.

Keep up the great work!!!

I am a twelve year old pianist and guitar player. I write music a lot, I have never heard music that has moved me as much as Hans Zimmers' "The Well". This music is beautiful and makes the movie so much better than it already is

Dear HZTeam, The Team of RC Prods has been a great inspiration to me. As a composer myself, RC Prods has motivated me in many ways. The music the team has created has been very close to my heart since a young age. Hans Zimmer of course is a hero and role model to me. His music comes from his heart and thats what i admire. I have been composing since i was young on the piano. RC Prods has motivated me to learn the tech part of music. The RC team has shown me that through music production, composing music can expand and mold into different cultures, styles, colors..... I am currently in process of getting a personal production studio so that i may take my music to the next level. Your music has influenced and touched me greatly. Thank you RC Prods Team!

I am beside myself now that I have found this web site. I was listening to The Last Samurai soundtrack and I was wondering why I was so mesmerised and satisfied by its hypnotic content. I decided to surf the web in search of anything Hans Zimmer, low and behold I came across Remote Control Productions. Now I know that all the music I was fasinated with like Gladiator, Hannibal, The Lion King, The Last Emporer, Prince of Egypt all came from the genius of Mr. Zimmer. As an amateur composer, I draw intense emotional inspiration from his works. From one Virgo to another, Thanks for the enjoyment!!!
