Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4
This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.
Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>I’m in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally don’t pay attention to the music unless it’s really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestri’s Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately it’s surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like that’s something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because he’s had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmer’s material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>
Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? Thanks

Greetings, dear Zimmer!

I am a game design student, and I am developing a game about samurais. I came here to ask you if I could use some of your songs of the movie "The Last Samurai" as soundtracks for the Demo version of my game.

I have no intention to gain money or sell, it is just for academic purposes.

That album is amazing and really combines with my game.
Thanks for the attention and I will wait for your answer!

Lieber Hans Zimmer,
ich hoffe Sie nehmen es mir nicht übel daß ich meinen Kommentar auf deutsch verfasse.
Ich finde es sehr traurig daß Sie, mal wieder, bei der Oscar- Verleihung leer ausgegangen sind. Meiner Meinung nach sollte die Academy den besten Komponisten Hollywoods endlich wieder mit dem Oscar ehren.
Machen Sie und Ihr Team weiter wie bisher, entführen Sie die Menschen auch weiterhin musikalisch in eine andere Welt und tragen Sie auch so weiterhin dazu bei, Kino zu einem wirklich fesselden Erlebnis zu machen.
Mit den besten Grüßen aus Deutschland
Sebastian S.

I am in the process of creating a video on Atom Interferometry which involves Quantum Mechanics and I very much would love to use Hans Zimmer song as a background. Would you please be so kind to tell me what is the name of Hans Zimmer publisher so I may get permission for one of his songs?. "Waking Up" from the movie "Oblivion" is the one I want to use. Please advice.
Very appreciatively,
Arthur Hernandez

Edmund Meinerts2015-02-01 23:59:38
Yeah, Oblivion isn't by Zimmer...although given how similar that cue is to "Time", maybe you really are asking in the right place after all!

Anonymous2015-02-02 02:28:31
Edmund, I think you need your ears checked if you think "Waking Up" sounds even remotely similar to "Time"

Edmund Meinerts2015-02-02 09:59:29
Derpty derpty doo, I was mixing it up in my head with "Fearful Odds". FAYUL.

Fine. It sounds like "A Dark Knight" then. Same idea. :b

Is there any way to listen to some of the unreleased music? I'm a big fan of Zimmer music, and I own a couple of his movie scores, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End included, but when I look at the extended cut I'm disappointed. There are some beautiful pieces of music from the film that do not appear at all in the score, especially the malestrom scene, my favorite part being the end at Will's death. Why is that? I don't mind paying a little more for excellent music, I just wish it were available in good quality and by legitimate means!

Hans Zimmer is an incredible fantastic composer. Listening to his music I know what to strive for as composer.

Inspired of his great sountracks I have written my own

I loved, absolutely loved the soundtrack to Inception. Now Interstellar moves me in a way that is just amazing. I used to be a bit of a snob when it came to film music although as a 12 year old I kind of started collecting music soundtracks. But the music of Hans Zimmer is just brilliant. They work wonderfully when watching an amazing movie (The Nolan/Zimmerman combo is magic) and these soundtracks stand by themselves.

Just wanted to comment about the work you and team did for the Interstellar soundtrack. It was quite simply the most moving soundtrack I have ever heard in a film. I can't get enough of it. It is so incredibly beautiful, whenever I hear it, I swell with an intimacy and human presence towards something so grandiose. It is just electrifying. I swear this is stimulating a different part of my brain then any music before it.

Congratulations on a job well done.

sorry -
my englisch is too bad for what i want to say.

Lieber Hans
so ein kleines Motiv – trägt den ganze riesen Film …
Und es ist so traurig fragend, und vollkommen klar und so mitten durchs Herz.
Ich hab Interstellar erst gestern gesehen/gehört - ich habe ab dem ersten Moment gedacht, ich liebe das!

Eine Trennung durch einen ganzen Kosmos:
wie schlimm für die, die sich lieben;
und nur durch die Liebe kann es lösen.
Dieses wunderschöne Motiv trägt alles in sich.
Und der Rest ist einfach nur noch konsequent.
Das ist total geil gemacht: ich bin sehr berührt!
Danke und Grüße, Guido

I was a bit fast with my german comment and I thought about it – and now I try in Enlgish :-)
Interstellar has got an incredible Soundtrack!
In my opinion it is so often the very small thing, that shows us a real miracle.
This is so well and beautiful done in this movie - Thank you Hans!

You can write a lot, how and what....but....I will give my opinion. When I listen to the music from the movie's incredible! It's been 14 years, after I saw the movie and heard the music. And the truth is...when I was ill, music for film Gladiator...give me strength! Not very good for me with English...sorry...But...With a childhood dream to write music for films...without fanaticism...just really...a Lot of movies looked...and realized that the "pictures" that's not the point...don't believe?!))) turn off the sound and watch the movie!))) agree! the movie can "see" with your eyes closed...if you hear it!!!))) Ah...the Music for the film Gladiator....great work!!! Well, that life...allow...sad...not all...and it is unreal)( 1995 learn and I will bad I'm a student...time still nobody. And all my dreams and music...stay with a remote Russian province...I shall sit with swollen ears headphones))) and write music...Sorry friends...clumsy wrote...just not to convey...) only music......And the parents were told to study to be a doctor or engineer)))))) When he studied at the College of music...wrote the piece for two violins and cello))) it was very interesting! Ah...tomorrow night and day...and after all repeats.......but with us the music!!! And we are not alone! Never swear! Respect others! P. S. First time in my life spoke) With bad English of course)) Sorry) Wanted to know how Hans wrote music for orchestra.......or all in the sad...wish with all my soul to see the world and to be heard in the music...but no one will hear...Dear Hans! I think You are a great composer! This is not flattery, it is my opinion! The melody for the movie Gladiator!!! Thank You, mr.Hans! Let my chord get lost among the millions...You are the best!

Hello to LA from Germany! I LOVE Hans Zimmers music-my favorite is Inception which I listen to on all my long car rides to all the different theaters I work-just incredibly awsome! I got tickets for a concert in Berlin April 2015 with his music. Will Mr. Zimmer be there as well?
I wish I could meet and greet!
