Personally I am very disappointed that after 3 or 4 trailers and several TV spot we have not yet been able to hear anything about the new Zimmer's music. <br><br>Something that worked so well on the previews of Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Rises or Inception....<br><br>Why not use it also with Interstellar? Why?Clearly deeply inspired by Zimmer's sound, whether Thomas ever admits it or not. It borrows the whole sound from Tron and Inception so it doesn't surprise me to hear that everyone is confused about who made the track. I mean, it even copied the ending of "Time". Copied the ostinato from something Goldenthal did in Alien 3 but implemented it in a way that mirrors Tron or Batman's.<br><br>However, it sounds decent at the end of the day and works with the trailer so whatever lol.Hybrid, which was the problem with Two Steps From Hell?And I ssume they left so they could do what they wanted and be on their own, yes?<br><br>Which is really a great decision.The spent 2 years at RCP...
Actually it's track "Final Frontier" from new album "Sun" :-)But Hybrid, were they part of RCP at the beginning? If not, I can understand that they want to be considered on their own, not undershadowed by Hans...Too bad, they make gorgeous music and one of the best. Can't get why you don't like them at all.<br>And since they don't want to be in the site, they're no longer important!? C'mon!!Well don't blame me Two Steps From Hell requested to not be on this website anymore... So excuse me if I don't give a flying f*** about them ! :)<br><br><br>And I don't like their music anyway... lolMusic here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iteQE7KEyU<br> I really love it, even if it's not Hans Zimmer :)
and PARIS ?Thomas Bergersen actually, from his new album Sun, that came out yesterday. The track is Final Frontier, but was edited in the trailer, the track doesn't end the same way.<br><br>And yes, Thomas is a musical geniusSeriously?<br><br>This is getting pretty funny.Interstellar trailer 3, music Hans Zimmer ?Yes, I was wondering that myself. I'm also wondering about Hans' rather meager comments on the demo material. Like he didn't have more than 3 minutes time to write something down for this special release.
Easy guys, any you there Rav, the Blu-ray is out, so you can do a rip to whatever you want. It's so simple.People, be nice. Or be your approximation of nice. Without stupid people, there would be no one to call us clever -- in fact no one would be clever.favorite* but I believe you understood the point nonetheless.This is by far my facorite John Powell score. Truly, deeply epic (I mean... Rooftops is a masterpiece of musical score). It's an inspired piece of work and it keeps evolving all along with those amazing themes. Rarely have I liked a score that much.I guess he might, mate.

What of Hans Zimmer is there in the "Climbing Up" cue? His name is under it, but I don't hear any of his themes in there...


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-04 23:18:52
Well the core of the cue is actually a rearranged version of the "Gladiator ripoff" from POTC 1... That's why... lol

Anonymous reply Replies: 3 || 2014-04-04 18:22:46
may i ask who determines who does which cues? and what determines whether HZ does a cue by himself?


Lambegue2014-04-04 19:32:14
Usually, Zimmer writes musical suites, that is to say pieces of music inspired by the film, but not written to match a precise scene : in this case, the suites are "Jack Sparrow theme", "Davy Jones theme" and "Kraken theme", plus all that was remaining from the first movie.
Then, the additionnal composers take the suites, arrange and edit them (or even write some new music based more or less closely on the suites) to match the picture. I think all this is mainly organized by Zimmer, even if there is probably quite a lot of discussion between the members of the crew in order to determine who does what. Sometimes, it seems as if Zimmer himself does some cues for the picture, but I don't think it is such a frequent thing...But again, I'm not the one who knows best about this on this site.


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-04 19:38:16
Flip a coin also works !! lol

Looks like we will never have that pure organ version of the Kraken theme :(

Mike reply Replies: 8 || 2013-06-01 10:47:47
I assume Hans is responsible for the "Lord Cutler Beckett" suite from the next film, but did he compose the little snippets of the Beckett theme heard in here?


Areozz2013-06-01 22:59:39
The "Lord Cutler Beckett" suite was actually written for Dead Man's Chest. Much like the "Jack Sparrow" suite found on DMC's OST, this Beckett suite explores all the aspects of Beckett's theme. It IS the origin of all the little snippets of the Beckett theme heard in here. It's a shame that such a large portion of the Beckett suite never saw any use in the movies, though.


Mike2013-06-02 02:59:33
That may very well be correct, but the Beckett suite isn't listed on this page. It's on the AWE page.


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-02 18:39:36
I'm pretty sure that the suite was written for AWE. The only aspect of the Cutler Beckett theme heard in DMC is the three-note rising ostinato (1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2), whereas all of the other aspects of the theme don't come into play until AWE.


NM2013-06-03 22:27:47
The Cutler Beckett theme is really good. Pity there were no theme suites for OST. Surely the 5 minutes of Mermaids isn't all Hans wrote for that one?


Mike2013-06-03 23:55:46
No theme suites? If you by the Treasures Collection you get:

Cutler Becket
Pirate Lord of Singapore
Just Good Business
The Heart of Davy Jones
Marry Me
A demo of the Pirates theme
A demo of Jack Sparrow's theme


Areozz2013-06-04 00:43:43
OST, here, stands for "On Stranger Tides". NM was asking if there were any suites for Pirates 4 outside of the Mermaids suite. I would expect not, given all the complications that score had. All of the new themes introduced in Pirates 4 play basically in their entirety in any one place that they appear (slight exaggeration) so there wouldn't be much more in a suite.


Mike2013-06-04 00:47:27
Ah, I see. Aren't Blackbeard and Angelica theme suites?


Areozz2013-06-04 01:06:10
Blackbeard? On the original soundtrack? I guess if you want to, you could call it a suite. It's only composed of three cues that just happen to contain Blackbeard's theme and that were somewhat lazily mixed together: cue #1 is Blackbeard's introduction, cue #2 is Blackbeard's demise, and cue #3 is the one named "Fry The Cook".

And again, with "Angelica": I guess you could call it a suite, but technically, I don't think it is even Pirates music. The very basics of the theme were maybe written by Zimmer, but the music was done by Rodrigo y Gabriella, whose names appear precisely nowhere in the credits accompanying the Pirates 4 demos.

Lucius reply Replies: 4 || 2013-05-28 09:19:17
And again, Hans ALONE arranged one of the best cues in the film (AWE's was "Trying to Get Lost", DMC's is "Abandon Ship - Jack's Demise"). So with due respect, if you say Hans has lost it, you don't know what you're talking about! :)


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-28 10:44:00
Yes, but this was seven years ago now. The people who tend to say Hans has lost it are talking about the last few years. And I must admit that sometimes I do think that to myself, because he hasn't really wowed me in a while - Inception and TDKR are in that drony pseudo-intellectual not-so-thematic style of his I don't like much (though they both have good individual moments) and SH2 and PotC 4 were shameful followups to good or even excellent scores, to name the bigger efforts. Hopefully Man of Steel will bring back a bit of that spark I've misseed from him lately.


Ds2013-05-28 13:36:16
I'm sure it will. From what we've heard MoS looks like a good mix of the old melodic Zimmer themes and the sharp, violent sound of TDKR.


Mike2013-05-28 19:45:39
I'm thinking Man of Steel will be something great, particularly with the film. But I'm going to remain slightly skeptical for now, just in case. :P


Anonymous2013-05-28 19:59:20
Hybrid, do you know, out of curiosity, why it is that Hans has other people arrange most of the film cues? Does he want to give the other composers experience? Is he too busy? I'm just wondering.

Typical Bitchy Greedy Fan reply Replies: 8 || 2012-12-25 16:56:13
Um. This is not complete. There are like 15 whole cues completely absent from this.


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-25 17:04:34
Yep, that's why I wrote "expanded", you know.

Among the missing cues you have :

Norrington Teases Liz
Persuade Me
Elizabeth Threatens Beckett
Monkey Stings
Will Watches The Dice Game
Cannibal Lights Fire
Elizabeth Helps Norrington
Swann & Beckett Make A Deal
The Dock Scene
Swann Helps Elizabeth
Tia Dalma Recognizes Him
Norrington Overlay
...

For something like 15 to 20 min...


al bundy2012-12-25 17:09:55
and why didn't you add them and called it complete score? ;)

are Alts of themes missing as well?


Jake2012-12-26 16:04:24
and, what i can called it now ! unrelesed tracks or Hybrid@ you know the tracks titles from music sheets !!


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-26 16:15:46
I reconstructed the POTC 2 & 3 (partial for 3) cue lists myself. Was a long and hard work. The original files came without titles, just "1m1, 1m2, 1m3...", and if you're all getting something clean like this, it's because I spent some time on it... Pirates have no secrets for me ! :)


Jilal2012-12-30 13:45:27
What's the cue number for "Climbing Up", Hybrid?


Huge POTC Fan2013-04-23 00:34:09
@HybridSoldier Any chance of the titular "missing cues" surface?

Jimmer reply Replies: 5 || 2012-12-30 13:34:03
@Hybrid: Where does the track "Wheel of Fortune" from Lorne Balfe's website fit in on this track list?


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-30 15:03:22
The cue on Lorne's site is "Climbing Up" (despite its name there, though the names on the site are mostly random titles).

Should be 3m19C or 3m20... :P


Peter2012-12-30 17:01:40
You're right ; Hybrid you add this track (3m19?) Climping Up from LB'Site to the track, but this track isn't in the recording sessions release, i don't know why ? we can add it and the quality is the same to the RE.SE.


Jimmer2012-12-31 13:46:04
@Hybrid: Ok. Thanks Hybrid. Grateful for your work and effort. And if you have the composer list for At World's End (Expanded Score) that'd be incredible too :-)


Mike2013-01-01 01:25:34
He already gave the credits to POTC3 on the AWE expanded score's page. Look in the comments. ;)
