Balfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>
Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before Dunkirk
Here's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.I hope Dunkirk wins just to make the so-called "reviewers" and those who say it isn't music, more frustrated and annoyed.
@badbu &#128077;<br><br>I honestly don't know how a complete score is going to work. They weren't kidding when they said the music is done like one long track. <br><br>What I understood from a Q&A with Nolan is that they didn't do it the usual way which means there are cues that are cut together / exist as segments. This was done in a different way where to create such cues, they used automation graphs to bring the layers in and out. Very complex. <br><br>One of the reasons why I think this deserves to win so many awards.Well it has officially been nominated. Fingers crossed for the complete score nowyep ahmad! 100% rightThe score is brilliant. It does its purpose very well and it is an essential part of the movie. It's also the most creative of the bunch with the way it was recorded and edited.I'd like Hans to win another Oscar but please, not for this.

Thank you for 'Who Are The Roma?' An eloquently posed question that sounds out in the mind a longtime after hearing. I listened too many times to count at work - corresponding sound to image for a slide show. Interpreting nuance, I felt the third movement concerns itself with matter of dignity, and then hope - In the last movement the question Who are the Roma? is once again evoked, quietly, and there it lingers long after the song is over. - - - In second movement, a light touch to the piano summons Zoe Zimmer's Slovakia road trip photos. Looksounds she is asks same question. Piano verifies.
I trust I have permission that the music remain on page ( thegypsychronicles.net ) Respect, A.

They should hire Bregovic, he is a master at writing gypsy music.


Nathan2011-08-19 14:37:24
He is not really a master at writing gipsymusic, but at arranging already existing gipsy music. (He does it very very good). But the sad thing is that instead of recognizing that he's arranging traditional songs, he pretends he wrote them himself. He puts the melodies under his name. So everybody who plays those traditionals today in a live situation with audience is obliged by law to pay Bregovic !!!!!!!!!
To me that is criminal.

I looove this music. And not just because it sounds like a jewish music. Romani people and Jews had a same destiny in our country (Slovakia) during war times. Nowadays the situation is not so different :(. Köszönöm Hans :).

Political message aside, I LOVE the cue. It' a classic Zimmer in minor mode but updated. I WANT THIS.

@Hybrid
Especially when someone is from Eastern Europe, like me. I can tell you hundrerds of stories good, bad either. This is something that is way complicated than 4 minutes.

@Adrian
Yes, the build up of this short movie reffers too much to Home.

The narrator of the movie is Czarina Russell, RCP's studio manager...

Tiffany Bordenave, also from RCP, is associate producer...


And if you check the "thanks" section, it's all RCP : Atli Örvarsson, Satnam, Ramin Djawadi, Guillaume Roussel etc...

So it's basically all RCP stuff...

As for the documentary itself, there are two sides of it :

One I like : making people who don't even know what Roma's are... know who they are ! I guess it's mainly for US people...

One I don't like : as a European, French in particular (where the Roma issue is relatively significant (had trouble last year with the government etc...)), I don't feel really comfortable with people from the other side of the Atlantic pointing Europe's behaviour... I mean, it's quite easy to point OTHERS' problems... :)

Anyway, it made a cue tune ! :D

@ Levente
Are you referring to the documentary about planet earth, with music by Armand Amar?

Levente reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-12 00:00:00
The makers watched "Home" too many times. Nothing special.

Yeah, reminds me of the Sarajevo theme from The Peacemaker.
Great (as usual)! :)

Ha, luckily you listened - apparently my post was snowed under by the other discussions...

Amazing song, recommended! And kudos again for Zimmer doing charity :-)
