Martin Tillman is scoring a new movie called A bell for Ursli! I'm very glad that he gets to do some composing of his own these days! He is such a great musician! He plays the cello in most of Zimmer's and HGW's scores if you don't know who he is:P
I can't quite place why, but Celebrate the Oscars reminds me of John Williams. Great and uplifting track--and starts out with a classic Zimmerish BRAAAAAAM. :)
Oddly enough I just bought it
Good stuff, isn't it?
The BRAAAAAM! is awesome
The main melody resembles the heroic Superman theme from Man of Steel (think the beginning of "Flight").
Huh I'm not hearing that.
and i'm not saying that in a bad way
Listen to 0:48-1:10 in Celebrate the Oscars, then listen to 0:31-1:10 or so in Flight.
Maybe it's just me.
Even better idea: listen to that same section of Celebrate the Oscars, then listen to 14:26-15:20 in "Man of Steel (Hans' Original Sketchbook)", and tell me if you notice it there.
Yes now I got you it's a similar chord progression
Different Orchestrations but similar chord progression not exactly the same but similar.
Both quite good though. I wouldn't have known when this came out to expect something similar for Superman. lol. And speaking of Zimmer superhero music, I find it funny that Zimmer hasn't mentioned his involvement with Spider-Man.
Yeah good point but he also has 4 more movies before that one comes out
So the Oscars have been broadcasted worldwide, yet this music can be only bought by US citizens.
What's the reason? It's not like there will be any development on German TV/Music market that forces them to withhold sales in Germany for any number of weeks or months. There is NO reason. I really enjoyed and appreciated the music, it even caused goosebumps and tears, yet I cannot pay those f*in $5.99 (or even make that Euros) to further enjoy and appreciate it. Legally! At least, with a CD, I could order it on Amazon US and have it shipped over here or something.
THIS is what forces people all over the world into piracy, because we would LOVE to pay for good stuff, but are just kept away from getting it! REALLY SUCKS! Especially having in mind where Hans Zimmer comes from - he has tons of fans in Germany!!!
*** EDITED BY WEBMASTERS : This topic is about the fact this score is only available on the american itunes store, and prevent other country to download it ****
*** Priere de rédiger en anglais la prochaine fois ***
Alors, là! Bon, désolé, j'écris en français. Trop énervé pour réfléchir anglais ce matin!!
Je me pointe sur l'iTunes tranquillement pour acheter la piste faite par Hans. Que se passe-t-il? "Votre compte ne peut acheter des produits sur l'iStore américain".
Et après, on va dire qu'Internet est rempli de pirates...
Bouh!! Honte à eux!
Cela dit, quelle magnifique piste créée par Zimmer. Un peu répétitive mais épique, glorieuse. Tout ce que j'aime de sa musique (qui d'ailleurs est souvent très sombre, plus technique ces dernières années).
Cela fait plaisir de retrouver un thème dans la veine de "Backdraft", "Spirit" et un soupçon de "The Holiday" également.
*** english only please ***
xxxxx *** do not ask for illegal copy please ***
*** english only, please ***
I'm a french speaking too, but I want to avoid 3 *XXXX reply :) I completely agree with you Hale, this is a very refreshing-Zimmer sound, it made me so happy when I heard this track yesterday morning! Just Hope "Dark Knight Rises" will not fall too deep into "Dark Knight" or "Inception" sounds, which for me is a disappointing tendency of Zimmer sound these last years...
