"Not to mention the huge chunks of silence at the beginning and end (and sometimes middle) of tracks"<br><br>Edmund Meinerts, Sessions without chunks of silence at the beginning and end was released on rutracker site about month agoGreat. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!
Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...If there'd only been the first movie prior, I think I'd get it a bit more. But the 2nd film did have a proper score release, so the only reason at this point is that it just isn't on Nick's mind after all the delays.Whoa, why not? Every obscure random shit gets released these days but a Hans Zimmer score to a fairly big mainstream movie doesn't?
I doubt there'll be a score release.The Spongebob movie is being released next Friday here in Canada, could we see a release of the album soon? Assuming of course that there will be an album at all /:I gotta say that short film was spectacular even with I Phone 11, the score by Lorne Balfe fitted very well with the scenes introduced.I'd say that this anthem was pretty great for Zimmer to score a soccer team that has been alive for 25 years.Cheers guys, much appreciated!<br>In my mind I had some video interview though, as I always like watching those as well. I do wonder if there was an extra section on the home release of the movie where ideally there might be.
Hans Zimmer is one of the biggest film composers working in the industry today.  He won an Academy Award for his work on The Lion King, and has been nominated for six other films including Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, and As Good As It Gets. With The Last Samurai he celebrates his 100th film score, and SoundtrackNet had an opportunity to talk with Hans a few weeks ago during a rare break in his busy schedule working on Something's Gotta Give.<br><br>You've scored many projects during your career, and The Last Samurai is being touted as your 100th film score…<br><br>Well, I'm terrible with math, so I'm not doing the counting. It could be more, it could be less – but apparently it's the 100th.<br><br>So how did you get involved with the project?<br><br>If you're lucky enough to get nominated for an Oscar, you get invited to the Oscar nominee's luncheon where they hand out these little nomination certificates. There are usually 150 people standing there, and people are invited up in alphabetical order, starting with the As. By the time they get to the Cs, everybody's already back at their table chatting and eating, and while the first people called get thunderous applause, you can imagine what it's like when your name starts with Z!<br><br>So Ed Zwick and I were standing there, waiting at one of these luncheons about four years ago, and we started talking to each other. I asked him what he was working on and he told me about this movie called The Last Samurai, which I thought sounded interesting and I asked him to send me a script. After the script arrived, I didn't hear from him for a long time and I thought he'd forgotten about me, not thinking about how difficult it is to set up a samurai movie these days. The other thing I liked about the project was that Tom Cruise was involved, so it was like returning home, since I've scored a bunch of his movies – I knew we were going to have a good time.<br><br>Did it end up that way?<br><br>Ed and his editor Steve Rosenblum are such gentlemen, so together and professional, and they basically did one cut of the film, screened it, and everyone loved their work. So after this, they had plenty of time to come and hang with me, and while I usually love the re-cutting process because it's a diversionary tactic to keep the director and editor out of my life, these guys were great to have around. <br><br>Of course, my sense of paranoia made me think that something was going wrong all the time, waiting for the other shoe to drop, as it were, but it never happened. Ed phoned this morning and I thought, "Oh my god – rewrite!" It's just how my brain works. But I think he and I feel a bit odd now: we've been seeing each other every day for months, and suddenly we're done. I completely understand why people have a problem finishing a movie, because there's something really nice about the process – completion is far more boring.<br><br>For Samurai, you used Japanese percussions and ethnic woodwinds, without getting too 'Japanese'.<br><br>My problem is that I feel Japanese music is really inaccessible to Western ears, and I was really struggling with this film initially, trying to figure out what I was doing. This idea popped into my head for using Western-style themes, but applying a Japanese aesthetic to them, which sounds great of course, until I had to ask myself what I meant! Actually, I think it's just my way of not overloading certain things with too many colors, or being geometrically precise about my cues and not making them too flowery.<br><br>The Tom Cruise character is one of those nasty drunks at the beginning, who obviously has some serious problems he's trying to deal with, or not deal with. He's obnoxious and restless, suffering sleepless nights and is very un-Tom. For me, this character's journey was about his need to earn tranquility and peace, so within the score there's this very romantic, overblown and passionate theme. It's like a juvenile way of dealing with life and death – the pain and liebestod.<br><br>However, to contrast with these very relentless themes, there are a number of stark, formal and sober pieces, because I wanted to take Tom's character on a journey. He comes from America and ends up in this foreign place where he doesn't speak the language or understand the culture. But at the end of the movie, I want the audience to think that there isn't a more beautiful place for him to be, that he is at home in Japan and finally at peace.<br><br>There are many useless acts of bravery we do out of misguided romanticism, and this movie is full of courageous and dignified acts of bravery. So I wanted to play off these acts, since both the American and Japanese cultures have a concept of heroism, and I just wanted to see if I could play with the nature of the two different concepts.<br><br>So you didn't want to do the stereotypical Japanese thing...<br><br>Absolutely not! Take Akira Kurosawa's Ran, for example, which has this brilliant score where Takemitsu writes Western music, but with an Eastern accent. Somebody asked me a few days ago why As Good As It Gets was European – why did I write a European score for a quintessentially American story? For me, it's because Jack Nicholson was crazy in the movie, and I felt one of the great things about America is how they always think we Europeans are crazy. So by writing a European-styled score, it's my way of saying that Jack is crazy, but it's alright!<br><br>How do you feel about people who criticize your work for not fitting into the time period, like Gladiator?<br><br>The reason I take these jobs is because I'm interested in foreign cultures, and every time I get to work on a movie I'm thrown into the adventure of whatever that culture is, the time, and wherever the story's taking place. So one of the things I'm very careful about is not to be historically correct to the culture, but, on the other hand, not to insult the underlying aesthetics of that culture either. I remember watching Chariots of Fire and thinking how brilliantly the music worked, never missing that it wasn't period instruments! I grew up listening to Bach played by a symphony orchestra – it's the wrong sized orchestra with the wrong instruments, but I don't think that's the point.<br><br>With Gladiator, Pietro Scalia brought in a CD saying "this is Ancient Roman music," and I said, "Says who? You went to the Ancient Roman music store and bought an Ancient Roman music CD? Bullshit!" We're not anthropologists. Look at he costumes Ridley Scott had: they were more Napoleonic than Roman, which was perhaps fitting since Napoleon had stolen all of his good ideas from the Romans regarding how to make his generals look cool – and so did Hitler! So I got criticized for making the "Entry into Rome" cue too Leni Riefenstahl – but that was the joke! I am allowed to have a sense of humor in my music!<br><br>Earlier this summer your credit on Pirates of the Caribbean was "Score Overproduced by". What was the deal with that?<br><br>Well, I thought honesty was a virtue! But seriously, Jerry Bruckheimer quite rightly asked me not to give him "that old-fashioned Pirate music," and Gore Verbinski, who I adore and did The Ring with, said, "Well, it is a pirate movie, so we have to disguise it." In the end, I spent a day and a half writing tunes, Klaus Badelt wrote a lot of stuff, and we rolled up our sleeves, got drunk, behaved in a debauched way, and produced a score!<br><br>There was a lot of criticism regarding that score, but in the end it had to serve the film - which it did. You seem to get a lot of criticism on any project you do.<br><br>I had the misfortune of going onto the Film Score Monthly web site recently to look something up and vanity made me type in my own name. I suddenly realized that you can't ever get it right. Who do people want me to be? The guy that writes Matchstick Men? Or the guy that writes The Rock? Or the guy that writes Driving Miss Daisy? My need is ultimately to write for myself. I mock myself and I'm ironic about the way I speak about it because if I take it too seriously, it would be a pompous and boring thing to do. But at the same time I take each note I write very seriously – none of them are random.<br><br>The Internet Movie Database always lists you as being attached to multiple projects, so I was curious, what's Sharktail?<br><br>I complained to Jeffrey Katzenberg that I couldn't cross any more Red Seas, or deal with any more horses that can't speak – I wanted to do one of the fun animated movies instead. There's also a hip-hop element in Sharktail, and I haven't been there yet, so it's new territory! King Arthur is still in production, and I literally just got the first bits of footage just before you came here.<br><br>Are you working on all of these projects simultaneously?<br><br>I'm thinking about them! I'm also working with Jim Brooks on his new comedy, Spanglish.<br><br>And speaking of comedies, you recently did Matchstick Men for Ridley, which had a very Nino Rota vibe to it....<br><br>And I gave him credit! I thought, what if Nino had written the theme and I was just doing the variations? But I bet I'm going to get criticized for that because it's not like Gladiator.<br><br>So when did you last have a vacation?<br><br>Well, I went to Japan for a couple of days at the end of November for the Japanese premiere of Samurai, but look, I love what I do! In January I'll travel to Morocco because Ridley will be shooting his next movie, Kingdom of Heaven, so that's like a holiday!<br><br>My family and I are going away at Christmas, and what we used to do would be to rent a house in the mountains and go on these skiing holidays. It would be a crappy house, not as nice as the one we live in, my wife was still going to the market, and we're still washing our plates – so it wasn't a vacation, it was a lot of work! It's taken us a long time, but we just figured it out: we're not practical with vacations – we're staying at hotels! But while the Zimmer family isn't talented when it comes to vacations, we're talented when it comes to work!<br><br>I sat through Samurai the other day, and for the first time watched the whole movie from top to tail with everything finished and completed. It felt really good, better than a vacation. But luckily there were enough things wrong for me to think that I learned something from the experience, and now I can't wait for the next project to try these new ideas out.<br><br>The soundtrack to The Last Samurai is available from Elektra Records, and the film is currently in theaters. Matchstick Men is available on Varese Sarabande Records.<br><br>With thanks to Chet Mehta at Chasen & Co, Jason Cienkus at Warner Brothers, and Nina Lynch and Mark Wherry at Media Ventures for helping with this interview.

The end credits theme is Rise Up In Faith, and ''moses opens the Red Sea'' it's not in the OST. Unfortunately as many many other cues and you won't find it anywhere :(

Sorry friend, those tracks are not on the Son Of God release... I hope they release these tracks on the upcoming A.D. series. Hopefully, Hans Zimmer will score this series...

Or they can make another Bible series soundtrack with all the unreleased tracks...

I love the traces that Hans Zimmer produced for these projects: The Bible Series/ Son Of God. I just wish that producers and filmmakers could release more tracks from these projects.It would be nice if they could...

Otherwise well done!

I know we'll never figure this out clearly but if I had to guess I'd say Faith, In the Beginning, and Roma's Lament were the ones where Zimmer had a big role, and then the rest of the score is Balfe/the other arrangers. What do you guys think? Faith definitely has a Journey to the Line vibe, and then In the Beginning sounds like the Marry Me suite from POTC3, and then he posted the nativity scene (which has the same theme from Roma's Lament) on Facebook when this score first came out (implying he worked on that). What do you guys think?


Anonymous2014-03-16 23:23:31
Of course I think Lorne was involved with those three tracks WITH Hans... :)


MacArthur2014-03-16 23:55:50
Don't Forget "Creation Choral" That one is the main bible theme.


Anonymous2014-03-17 01:00:07
Yeah true but it's just the theme from In the Beginning in powerhouse form...I always figured it was a Lorne arrangement of that theme, but idk. :)


RealFfingMusic2014-03-17 17:57:27
It's very hard to distinguish between Hans and Lorne Balfe. He works so much with Hans he sounds quite a lot Zimmer-y to me.

He was undercredited in Inception and Megamind, and I believe he did a lot here too. (I would like to know how much).

I think "In the Beginning" is a lot more Zimmer than Balfe too, but we can't be sure. It might turn out that this one and Faith are the only ones Zimmer didn't touch! lol.


Mike2014-03-17 19:35:31
No, I agree with RealFfingMusic: In the Beginning definitely sounds like it's mostly Zimmer. Same with the first couple minutes of Faith, as it slowly builds.

With what writing the score?

According to IMDB Lorne will score "Son of God" himself, without Zimmer.


MacArthur2013-10-22 18:59:01
Ok...I was thinking that you were saying Balfe Scored the Bible soundtrack. I was gonna say.most of the Bible score was Zimmer. :)



Mike2013-10-22 19:54:29
Hybrid, would you please clear this up? Is it not true that Lorne did most, or at least a good half, of this score, and that it is *not* mostly Zimmer?


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-22 20:04:26
Of course Lorne did most of it...

HZ's words on it : "...And yes, Lorne out-did himself on this one! Great, great work by him."

I guess that says it all, nope ?


Mike2013-10-22 20:06:39
Thank you, sir!


MacArthur2013-10-22 20:37:10
Ok...But still The Director's did say that Zimmer's score was essential, and that's not the AP that's the Director's saying that. But I will say that Balfe did have have a good deal in the score as Hybrid said


Mike2013-10-22 20:52:24
The Beyond: Two Souls creators also said how great it was that HANS ZIMMER did that score, but we both know he did not. Hans' name gives publicity and directors know that, so even if he just did a bit, they'll make it sound like he had a huge hand in it.


MacArthur2013-10-22 21:00:01
Sorry about saying most if your thinking that I mean Zimmer did like 90% of this score I know that he didn't But I will say that he did about half if not 60% of this simply because the Director's sat in on the some Scoring session. From what I gather from beyond two souls the creator's did not.


MacArthur2013-10-22 21:09:33
One other thing about this score Zimmer is listed as a Composer and not a producer as he is in beyond two souls


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-22 21:17:26
60%? More like 25%. If that. Zimmer does a lot less than you seem to think he does, Mac.


MacArthur2013-10-22 21:49:38
Where do you get that info that he did only 25%?


MacArthur2013-10-22 21:57:09
I'll give half the credit to Balfe. but I'll bet Zimmer did more than you guys give him credit for.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-23 00:13:08
It's just that scores credited to Zimmer and Balfe are almost invariably more the latter than the former. We had that with MW2, we had that with Megamind, we had that with The Dilemma. Not quite as sure about Crysis 2 but there's so little RCP music in that one that it's hard to tell.

In the case of The Bible it's also more of a gut feeling. Most of the score just seems to sound more Balfey to me than Zimmerish. "Faith" is really the only cue that strikes me as really having a lot of Zimmer vibe. Maybe he also had a hand in writing the themes but I'm willing to bet Balfe was the one who did the actual cues, which counts more in my book. Put that together with what we know about previous "Zimmer/Balfe" scores and I have a fairly strong inclination that Balfe did most of the legwork. And what Hybrid said just above me in this thread doesn't exactly disprove my gut feeling, does it.

I'd be glad to find out more about what happened here, but until then, it's "Balfe until proven Zimmer" for me. :p


MacArthur2013-10-23 06:53:36
Ok...To each his own, And I understand that. MW2 was Mostly Balfe looking at some sources.

Megamind I did not know about. Funny cause a few cues in that like "black mamba"
Rejection in the rain and Melan-choly sound like Zimmer to me

For this one in terms of a gut feeling I get what you are saying here what sounds like Zimmer to me.

"Faith"
"In The Beginning"
"Roma's Lament"
The next four are so bland and repetitive hence Balfe, Also occurs in MW2 several times where the music get old.

But I get the feeling 12-16 are Zimmer even "I Am" is Zimmer.

That's My Gut Feeling. :)



Mike2013-10-23 17:31:42
Honestly, I feel like a lot of times it's not easy to tell what's Balfe and what's Zimmer when both names are on the cover. Balfe does so much ghostwriting and arranging for Zimmer that he really sounds like Zimmer (unless a score is JUST Lorne Balfe without Zimmer's name attached in any way, in which case you can usually tell a difference). In MW2, if I were told that all of it was Zimmer, I'd believe it. I mean, yes, Zimmer has a distinct sound, but a lot of the time it's more blurry than you seem to think (when you say things like "This sounds like Zimmer to me"--it all kinda sounds like Zimmer!). And to say that something bland and repetitive must be Lorne Balfe is unreasonable. Also, there's a lot of music in MW2's complete score. I wouldn't call it "repetitive". Each mission has a new feel to its music, generally. Though I will admit the "Extraction Point" theme was a little overused in the Washington DC portions of the game.


Mike2013-10-23 17:55:21
...and my apologies if that seemed overly harsh. Wasn't meant to. :P


MacArthur2013-10-23 18:00:42
No biggy Understand.

To Me in MW2 Around track 6 though 12 or 13 it all sounds the same.
But the Game Experience is preety cool.

Anon-e-missing reply Replies: 9 || 2013-05-16 21:31:46
Is it fair to say Lorne Balfe was the primary composer here?


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-16 21:45:10
I think so. Considering it only says "Composer: Main Theme" next to Zimmer's name up there...I wouldn't be surprised if "Faith" was a largely Zimmer cue and the rest could be chalked up to Balfe, but that's purely guesswork on my part. The man in the green text probably will know better than I.


Anon.2013-05-16 23:41:25
Hybrid, wonder if you could answer this:

So, a score like the Bible or Call of Duty MWFII says Hans Zimmer composer/main theme, Lorne Balfe composer, when I'm sure Lorne uses a majority of Zimmer's themes for the final score, then plays around with them for the cues.
BUT then (as i've concluded from many comments on this site) a very similar thing happens on scores like Dark Knight Rises and Sherlock Holmes, yet only Zimmer is credited. Doesn't seem fair or Lorne?

Is this because of legal contract issues? or is there other reasons????

As much as I enjoy leisurely listening to the scores or Hans and RCP, I feel as if it's completely ruining the way film scores are made. It's no longer 1 composer spending hours and committing their life to the art, it's become a 'pop' album, where the credited person does basic work on themes and ideas, but then gives it to a million other people to 'do the work for them."

I'm all for collaboration, but this is completely ruining the art of film music.


Mike2013-05-17 23:04:42
I can answer that one, Anon. With The Dark Knight Rises, pretty much ALL the music comes from one of two sources: the suites Hans wrote for the movie or from the scores of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight (also by Hans). And even though Lorne arranged a whole lot of cues for the film, they're hardly changed from the way Hans wrote them, so you're truly listening to Hans Zimmer when you watch the film.

With Modern Warfare 2, Hans only wrote ONE piece, the Opening Titles. The other pieces are not only arranged by Lorne (as in TDKR) but COMPOSED BY Lorne (something not the case in TDKR).


Mike2013-05-17 23:16:57
While TDKR can truly be called a Hans score, however, I do understand the question with regards to Inception (which I mentioned on that page), where Lorne not only arranged the score as heard in the film but wrote a couple themes himself (Fischer's theme, Kick It Suite, and possibly even Saito's theme). In that case I would say he should be given credit as a co-composer.


Bioscope2013-08-28 05:38:29
@ Edmund. LOL, I like that. Get ready, guys, cause He is coming back. This Syria thing is worrying me...

MacArthur2013-08-29 06:12:29
I put the Track listings ion the Dark Knight Rises Zimmer Did Help with the Balfe Themes and He was Credited with the Oscar and if there are to many composers hollywood won't nominate a score That's why The Dark Knight didn't get nominated

15. Creation Choral (Hans Zimmer) Theme
16. Rise Up in Faith (Hans Zimmer) Theme


I gather that Zimmer did More than just the main theme simply because the director and producers were commenting on his score and other interviews Hans was asked how he did the score. so in my opinion Hans did more than just the Main theme.


MacArthur 2013-08-26 06:42:37
And also on the CD it says that he did more than just the theme and had more involvement in it than just that. now Balfe did a lot of the score and I'm Talking like 50% of it while Hans did about 40% And 10% The Additional Composers.


Mike2013-08-26 17:22:29
You have a point, my friend. Why would the series' crew say so much about Zimmer's music if he only did a theme?


Mike2013-08-26 17:28:08
I would also imagine Hans did "Marry Me"...Oh, I'm sorry, I meant "In the Beginning". ;)


MacArthur 2013-08-26 23:34:37
I Don't Get it


MacArthur2013-08-27 19:17:14
I would Imagine That He Did at least 55%


Mike2013-08-27 23:46:16
I said the Marry Me thing because "In the Beginning" sounds intensely reminiscent of Hans Zimmer's suite "Marry Me" from At World's End.


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-27 23:50:36
Really? I thought it sounded more like the Terminator theme. Which is hilarious.

So Hybrid what ones did Zimmer work on? to be specific

MacArthur reply Replies: 4 || 2013-07-31 00:26:48
Did Lorne Balfe Write The Score Or Hans Zimmer


Mike2013-07-31 00:32:50
Lorne did the majority of it, while Zimmer did the main themes.


MacArthur2013-08-01 23:57:48
What is the main theme because faith didn't sound like a theme more a opening to the series. The main theme I thought was in creation choral, nativity, in the beginning, and Roma's Lament. those sounded like the main themes.


Bioscope2013-08-02 08:03:02
'In The Beginning' could serve as an intro theme, as it resembles The Chorale, but there was no single intro theme used to open the series. They always varied based on 'Previously On The Bible'.

'In The Beginning' did open the series...


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-02 15:39:22
Stop scratching your heads, the themes are co-written by Hans & Lorne...

hybrid, what track is the main theme that zimmer composed?


Mike2013-07-20 05:24:07
Not Hybrid, but I think it's Faith.

This score is very nice!
I wonder if someone could say which tracks are in which episodes and which tracks that are used more than once:)

Prott reply Replies: 7 || 2013-05-25 01:49:29
Just a little offtopic - does anyone know something about Lorne's/RCP involvement in Fast & Furious 6? There's a bunch of RCP credits (Lorne Balfe as technical assistant, Gavin Greenaway as conductor) in end titles of the movie + the whole score sounds quite "RCP-ish" in some places (it even features a few samples from the RCP sample library). Thanks! :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-25 08:29:10
Vidal is quite linked to RCP indeed. Bruce Fowler orchestrated some of his movies.

Lorne "technical assistant" ? You sure ? No way, he wouldn't lose time on a film like that as tech assistant. Music consultant why not. This just looks like a credit to hide his true role. I'll do a little enquiry about that... :P


Prott2013-05-25 13:57:21
Thank you! :) I'm actually not really that sure about Lorne's specific credit (it could be "musical consultant") - but I'm sure it isn't "additional music".

I'm curious about the situation with this one, because it sounded like one of those "complicated scores" (and I don't mean a bad score - just a last minute rewrite, or something like that - the score itself is actually quite enjoyable). It borrows heavily from Brian Tyler's material for last two movies (mainly Letty's and the "family" theme) and it also features quite a few temp-track inspired cues (Mombasa, Time), but of course that's not a fault of a composer. :)


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-25 14:11:01
I heard somewhere that Vidal now works in HGW's old studio, is that true?

Also, more to the point, is the score from FF6 going to get a release? The movie's already out and I haven't heard anything, which is making me a little nervous. I really like Vidal's scores (Cold Light of Day was excellent) and this is his biggest movie yet so I'm interested to hear it, especially if he actually keeps continuity with Tyler's themes. A different composer keeping the previous themes? I must be dreaming!


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-25 18:36:33
Lorne confirmed to me he did some consulting on it. Just some advice to Vidal... :)

And yeah, I watched the film this morning, lots of RCP samples used indeed !


Prott2013-05-25 23:41:01
Thanks Hybrid! :) Yeah, lots of samples, but sadly there weren't any RCP-sampled french horns. Those are always epic... :-)


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-26 00:03:57
Thank God! If there's one thing that bugs me it's synth horns. I don't mind electronics if they can add to the orchestra, but I'd prefer them not to replace it.


Prott2013-05-26 01:29:45
For me it depends on the style of the score - they would bug me in more "lyrical" scores (like Da Vinci Code, PotC 3), but they are great when it comes to the sheer force. :)

In the Beginning is amazing! It's like a perfect mix of the love theme from POTC3 and the Da Vinci Code.


Mike2013-05-03 07:14:24
It is. I haven't seen the series, but I imagine judging by the track title that "I Am" plays during Moses' encounter with God in the Burning Bush. So I wonder how Hans felt having to score that a second time (the first time being "The Burning Bush" from "The Prince of Egypt").


Mike2013-05-03 07:16:17
Though perhaps this one was referring to the words Christ in John 8...But that seems unlikely.


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-04 00:20:06
Although not as good as either of those two things, plus the melody reminds me of Terminator somehow.

Per2013-04-20 16:46:50
Highly doubt there's "only" 2 hours of music for a 7+ hour show. But I haven't seen it, so maybe there's not much music in it !(?)


Bioscope2013-04-20 21:08:36
@Per, maybe true, but there were a lot of places where the same music was tracked, looped and edited, as we witnessed in SURVIVOR, care of Landau's library music. The validity of this is so so, but the spelling mistakes worry me a little. I hope these are not fanmade titles...


x-jazz2013-04-20 23:11:08
Any info if this is a DVD-rip?
Indeed there are a lot of scenes where the same music was tracked, but there is still a lot of great music in the series that has not been released yet, some great choral and orchestral passages and some nice variations of existing themes, so I do hope this is indeed real. The "Carrying The Cross" cue and the choral piece when Paul gets arrested in the end (also plays in the court of Pharaoh with Moses earlier on) are the ones I really wish were released.


Mike2013-04-22 09:28:03
@Bioscope: Spelling doesn't mean illegitimacy. On the cue list for Empire Strikes Back, John Williams consistently misspelled "Vader" as "Vadar". :P

Both my wife and I cried when we watched the scene, and I listened to the score underneath. I only now appreciate what this man went through for me, someone he had never even met as a human walking on Earth. Beautiful and wise that FAITH was also used with dread overlays for the Abraham and Isaac sequence. (Sacrificing your own son.

The most poigniant sequence since THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST as would be allowed for television viewing...

That would be awesome. It shouldn't be hard, as Lorne himself is lately so generous with his own material. SWEENEY and RESTLESS both offer legal complete scores, so why not THE BIBLE? It seems it is up to Hans Zimmer's views regarding his contributions...

Also, it feels like this score was done with sampled orchestra and live players, so the re-use should be minimal.

@Bryan: I TOTALLY agree! This score is very well done and anyone who says otherwise is ignorant at recognizing a great piece of work. It's like a mix of Da Vinci Code and Gladiator. Good mix.


Jonathan Rochat2013-03-05 13:20:13
I do not think I'm a ignorant. I heard more than 200 works of Hans Zimmer, and I would like to say that this one is Ok, but a disappointment in regards of what Zimmer has done many years before. The musical structure and the themes are not very original, i was expecting more, sorry.

On a "Faith" theme, I prefer to come back to the "Prince of Egypt" 15 years before...


Edmund Meinerts2013-03-05 13:36:25
So anyone who disagrees with you, Jimmer, is ignorant and incapable of recognizing "true art"? As Chandler would say, could you BE any more arrogant? :/

And @Jonathan...are there even 200 works of Hans Zimmer out there? Unless you're counting individual cues...


Jonathan Rochat2013-03-05 13:54:30
@ Edmund: Yes 200 is a bit exaggerated ;)
155 different works counting one track work such that "Who are the Roma?"
Officially this is around 130 soundtracks for movies.
More than 200 is with complete release...


Edmund Meinerts2013-03-05 18:26:24
Ah, gotcha. I don't tend to count completes and OSTs of the same movie as two different "works", so my count is somewhere around a hundred. Of course, it's hard to know whether to include something like Crysis 2 or Megamind where HZ only contributed a theme or some additional music.


david2013-03-08 20:47:12
this is masterpiece! one of the best work from hans and lorne in last years, who doesnt hear in this massive huge epic melodies is probably deaf...


Jonathan Rochat2013-03-10 19:30:31
@ Edmund:

Of course, if we do not count score like the one you mentioned, I'm not sure we will reach 40 or 50 by hans himself... ;)
This is not a surprise to see that Hans is one the composer with the most credited film music comparing to the majority. But yes, maybe the half has not been written by him.

Personally, one of the last time I put more than **** stars to a Zimmer's score was back to 2006 with the Da Vinci Code , which seems to be one of the last real Zimmer score, a sign? ;)



Hybrid Soldier2013-03-10 19:35:00
And then you're getting about Da Vinci... But as usual you have no clue about how things are going on ! Just "I think" !


Jonathan Rochat2013-03-10 21:29:24
Well this is not the very large list of all people that are working on a Zimmer's soundtrack since 2006 that tends to think the opposite in fact. :D

I really enjoy Zimmer in general, but the last years were in my opinion the worst of his career, even if there were sometimes very good moments. Just a thought.

But "the Bible" is finally quite good, juste not very original. I still expect a lot for "Man of Steel" :D
