Does anyone know when the score will be available?Hum I get your point but what cue are we missing here? I do not remember any missing piece of music, the release + the promotional FYC seemed quite exhaustive. The only problem is a damaged track (which has been repaired by fans) and an alternate track (the film mix has been recreated by fans). So in the specific case of Interstellar I don´t understand your complain...Just checking in to see if anyone's heard or read any more about anything coming out? I know it's effectively a over and done deal, because we've never received a complete Zimmer score, but I'm still hoping for one - or something with more music.<br><br>I wish Zimmer had more control over his music - or care, really. I guess as an artist, once you're done with something, it's time to move on, but he just really seems to be "eh, I'm passed that" in every interview he does about it - that or it's him saying "We'll see" or "It's up to Water Tower" or "Eh, it's out there somewhere. Who knows." Howard Shore does the same thing with the Hobbit complete scores - he just seems so "whatever" about the whole thing when anyone asks him, or that he has no clue how much there is - Shore even stated that the release we have now for "An Unexpected Journey" is pretty much complete - which, would be true, if it had the other 40 minutes worth of stuff that's not on it. Why do scorers seem so oblivious to what they've made? Or careless?<br><br>I can't tell if Zimmer just doesn't care, understand, or has no control over it, which upsets me. I'm not hating on him - I just wish I had a way to listen to that gorgeous score, even though I'm not entitled to it. Being a fan of film score sucks.Chronological order:<br>02 - The Medallion<br>03 - Valentine<br>01 - Manners Maketh Man<br>04 - To Become A Kingsman<br>05 - Pick A Puppy<br>07 - Skydiving<br>06 - Drinks With Valentine<br>08 - Shame We Had To Grow Up<br>09 - Kentucky Christians<br>10 - Curious Scars And Implants<br>11 - Toast To A Kingsman<br>12 - An 1815 Napoleonic Brandy<br>13 - Eat, Drink, And Paaaaarty<br>14 - Calculated Infiltration<br>15 - Out Of Options<br>Pomp And Cicumstance<br>16 - Hand On The Machine<br>17 - Finale<br>(18) - Original Valentine IdeasDid you use actual cuesheets or infos from the ASCAP database?
Dear Mr. Zimmer<br><br>I am currently studying in my Final year at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, majoring in film composition. For my mini-dissertation I am analysing the developmental characteristics of your film scores. It would benefit my research immensely if I could email you a short questionnaire regarding my work.<br><br>Kind Regards<br><br>Josh<br><br>My email address: Joshboudan@gmail.com <br>Brothers in Arms is absolutely incredible! <br><br>I don't know how any film score lover can hate that track. Rest of the score maybe but that one track is freaking incredible.Hi Team,<br>Thanks a lot for publishing my version of "Eptesicus" from Batman Begins OST.<br>Enjoy, feel free to comment and let me reiterate how awesome, inspiring and fantastic Hans music is!<br><br>Cheers,<br>Marco"The Greater Good" is very similar to "Safe Now".Thnx Xavi, same can be said of your piece of work!
Saturday Teenage Kick still better.Best work by Junkie XL to date.Lol this reminds me of how the media often forgets that Hans is also scoring it! They go like "Junkie XL who's also scoring BvS" and sometimes they add zimmer's name as nr 2 lol.hello.! nice to meet you.!<br>i'm korean and i'm student<br>my major is classic composer But my Dream is <br>Film Composer (i wanna be Like ,Harry grace williams,Hans zimmer, brian tyler,..ect)<br>there is not film scoring information in korea..<br>i want to share info,music, ect.... and my dream is king in hollywood film music market!!!!!!!!!!! i Get inspired your music (narnia1  - all track!! .. sometime i climb listening your music... <br>i really really wanna be your student.... i will graduate univ, and go to USA,, (UCLA,NYU Film scoring!!) <br>.. last year .. i worked part time job.<br>and i bought speaker(ADAM A7X),computer(WINDOW),audio card(RME -BABYFACE), keyboard(YAMAHA),Cubase(7.5)<br>what do you think i should do? i really really wanna be like you..(i wanna be remote control production member...)<br>   Please answer me as soon as possible. Thank you  (please you understand me that i cant speaking english very well.. Sorry...)llll
Immortan's Citadel, Storm Is Coming, The Rig, Brothers In Arms, The Bog, Chapter Doof and Walhalla Awaits are perfect.<br>This score has a lot of energy, is strong and Im very happy with the length. It's crazy!I think the score of BvS:DoJ is in good hands :)For me it's original from Tom. And remember, that's the musical visión from George Miller too.Huh. Here I was thinking working on something for 2.5 years would make it more original!EPIC Movie, EPIC Score. Like Hybrid said, 2.5 years working on this, that's the reason of the influence in man of Steel and 300 rise of an empire. Great great score.

The last part of "Charlie loses his head" seems to be the source of Dark Knight, it is very similar with the theme from TDKR

with all the respect in the world for mr zimmer and i think in modern times he is as GOOD as IT WAS the legendary ENNIO MORRICONE do have a question on the soundtrack on BLACK rain..i've searched all his soundtrack who are brilliant but i've missed one..when SUGAI enters the club and before that minute 54 and 15-20-30 seconds what's the name of the song..it;s driving me mad searching for it..i have the original dvd and all sound track on my computer all except that!!

Trent Easton Navarro reply Replies: 0 || 2012-12-27 18:18:23
La La Land has announced that they'll release another Zimmer score next year! Really curious which one it'll be.

Days of Thunder would be very cool. And I'm still hoping for an expanded The Peacemaker.

T-Mann036 reply Replies: 9 || 2012-10-01 03:21:37
This is ultimately one of the best film scores Hans have ever composed in 1990. Even for an expanded score with additional music from the late Shirley Walker and recording artists from UB40, Iggy Pop, etc., this is truly a must have and a part of the RCP Collector's library.


Cloud2012-10-01 13:34:31
To me this is one of the best scores he has ever composed, period. It's easily among my top 3 favorites of his. Then again, when I listen to Hans, I listen almost always to his late 80s/90s/early 00s stuff.


Dawn2012-10-02 13:11:20
@Cloud I feel the same. Late 80's, all 90's and early 2000's... what a great era for film music lovers !


Aggelos2012-10-03 11:49:42
You're right folks. Late '80s and '90s contain the most fantastic stuff from the RCP team. From early 2000, it would seem that the decline-twilight of the memorable theme/cues begins....

Sanguinely, LLL and Intrada will bring to light more of them (remember Intrada's White Fang).


Cloud2012-10-03 13:41:15
I included the early 00s solely because of scores like Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Hannibal, Spirit or The Last Samurai. These are all great. To me, the last big score of that era was King Arthur. After that, things started to change considerably.

That being said, I really hope LLL or someone decides to release Bird on a Wire and Days of Thunder.


Trent Easton Navarro2012-10-03 16:16:15
Yeah, King Arthur was probably Zimmer's last great score.

And I second Bird on Wire and Days of Thunder! But great scores that need to be released officially


Ds2012-10-03 22:52:58
I think you people are forgetting Pirates 2 & 3! Especially the 3rd!


Prott2012-10-03 23:15:57
... and The Da Vinci Code (at least).


Dawn2012-10-04 01:17:40
Yes, Da Vinci Code and Pirates 3, or even Inception were really good in their own right... but they were exceptions in this "new" era.

I don't know if it is film music that changed, or if it was just me, but from 1995 to 2003, I was excited every 3 months with something new. Then it started to decrease.
Yes I liked King Arthur, but it was not half as good as Gladiator or Black Hawk Down were.
Batman Begins, though it is now iconic and an important evolution in film music, still remains for me a little bit uninteresting and weak.

Maybe I started to get older and lost some natural childood enthusiasm ? Or was there a real decline in quality or inspiration ?... don't know.


fabien2012-11-01 18:13:53
some amazing unreleased part of Nick and Masa theme now released !!!!

bongo reply Replies: 2 || 2012-09-30 18:29:22
Just wondering does this release contain more unreleased music than the complete score bootleg release?


Hybrid Soldier2012-09-30 19:37:25
It does. ;)


bongo2012-09-30 22:45:54
Thankee, ordering right now!

Just announced by LLL, to be released later !!! :D

A big like, great news :-)


Ravi2012-07-01 06:27:49
Indeed, great news! So cool to see all these awesome HZ scores being released - Broken Arrow, White Fang and now this. Here's hoping that Lion King and Gladiator aren't too far. :-)


Cloud2012-07-01 17:02:01
Oh, boy. LLL saves the day once again. Black Rain has to be the quintessential Zimmer action score and my absolute alltime favorite of his. This is as good as ordered.


Mikel SiW (a fan from Spain)2012-07-02 13:31:32
Another miracle from La-La Land!!


Pawel Stroinski2012-07-30 01:15:23
The score will be probably released this August. Lala already "announced" that it will be their next release.


Aggelos2012-09-17 14:25:34
No August dudes. End of Sep or early October.
It's gonna be the wickedness!!! LLL needs to tackle more Media Ventures stuff! What on earth have they been doin'?.....

I'm losing my composure and patience!


Aggelos2012-09-18 09:16:17
The shit will be out September 25.
If not, then October 9.


Hybrid Soldier2012-09-18 16:44:12
Coming next week, the 25th !!!! :D


Aggelos2012-09-18 17:32:38
You don't say, bro! Count me in! It's about time to get another fine Zimmer release by triple L. Stop your grinning and drop your linen!

I was hoping some signed copies but the out hopes were trashed by "No signed Black Rain copies. Altough the project was produced with the blessing of Mr. Zimmer."


Trent Easton Navarro2012-09-18 20:00:03
Definitely looking forward to this one! One of Zimmer's finest action scores!


Aggelos2012-09-21 14:59:35
Guys, this score was conducted by Shirley. But what exactly did Shirley conduct in this one?
Was she conducting Hans' fingers whilst he performing and sequencing the music on his synthesizer?


Hybrid Soldier2012-09-21 19:23:42
There's an orchestra in that score.

Not a big one, but there is... ;)


Hybrid Soldier2012-09-25 22:23:36
And here we go ! :)


Aggelos2012-09-26 19:06:02
Yes bro! Freaking ordered without second thoughts!!
