"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>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<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>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. And, of course, special thanks to Hans.Mulan get his release... through Disney+, 4th September.Mulan is being released on sept 4th.

Well I already find out. John Paesano is replaced Lorne in DETROIT. I'm interested in what he composed. I hope it will worth it after his contributions to DEFENDERS' and Maze Runner but still I'd wish to hear Lorne :(

Well that's weird. :p A straight-up composer swap? Has that ever happened before? I can only think of Hans and HGW swapping Madagascar and Kingdom of Heaven, but that was agreed between two colleagues, this feels like either a bizarre coincidence or some sort of strange inside deal.

Know anything about it, Hybrid?

Edmund Meinerts2013-12-01 14:36:45
Yeah, I'd say it's his best (solo) score so far. Balfe for me has so far been a consistently "okay" composer, but this shows that there could be more to him than I previously thought. :)

Nothing about Tyler Bates can ever be considered "epic".

maybe not to you but i love tyler bates' music

Edmund Meinerts2013-11-02 11:51:28
I can think of few composers I have less respect for than Bates. The man has no talent to speak of and is a thief to boot.

Evenstar2013-11-02 14:05:01
also not a fan of Tyler Bates...

trent easton navarro2013-11-02 14:22:34
@Edmund, name me a film composer who hasn't borrowed from someone else? Why should Bates get all the blame and Horner, Williams and Zimmer a pass? And have you heard Bates' The Way? A lovely score, so Bates does have some talent.

Mike2013-11-02 14:33:13
I'm not familiar with Tyler Bates, but I do remember liking the score in The Way when I saw it.

Macejko2013-11-02 14:56:13
Once I had the same opinion as Edmund does. But nowadays, I can see some potential in Bates (thanks to "The Way"). Although he DID piss all over memory of Basil Poledouris with his terrible "Conan the Barbarian" score in 2011.
"Guradians of The Galaxy" will be a deal-breaker for him, a chance to prove himself. If he ruins it... he's finished.

Edmund Meinerts2013-11-02 15:18:07
The only score of his I heard that wasn't completely awful is the recent God of War: Ascension videogame he did, and even that was mostly just generic. Although I haven't heard The Way or Doomsday, which people say are better. What I have heard besides God of War is 300 (the best parts of which are by Elliot Goldenthal...about the whole theft thing, I know other composers do it too, but other composers have also proven themselves capable of writing great ORIGINAL music), Conan (just terrible) and The Darkest Hour (absolutely ear-bleeding). I haven't bothered to explore him further than that so I know I'm not really giving him a fair chance but there are just so many better composers who I need to explore first.

Macejko, yup, Guardians of the Galaxy will either make or break him. Although I really don't see why he keeps getting chances at big movies at all.

MacArthur2013-11-02 17:59:28
Trent you are forgetting that Williams and Zimmer & even Horner I are kinda the pioneer's of film score music. Listened to about three seconds of 300 and hated it answer this. Is Tyler Bates a pioneer no Zimmer's music is so much better.

MacArthur2013-11-02 18:02:18
Agreed with ed most other composer's are a little more creative each have their own style. and as much as everyone slams Zimmer he has developed his own style and not stolen from anyone else.

Mike2013-11-02 18:03:23
MacArthur, I'm not saying this to be a jerk, but please try to punctuate future comments. :) That was difficult to read.

Am I the only one thought that the first track is really similar to The Promise?

Mike reply Replies: 27 || 2013-10-05 18:37:40
Perhaps I'm over-thinking this, but am I the only one slightly aggravated by the fact that "Produced by Hans Zimmer" comes BEFORE "Music by Lorne Balfe" in the booklet? That makes it sound like Zimmer actually wrote some of music, and besides, everyone knows about Zimmer, while not many know about Lorne in comparison, so they'd probably focus on him anyway.

Edmund Meinerts2013-10-05 21:00:35
Hans Zimmer is a name that sells units. Lorne Balfe is not. There's your answer. It's the same with Crysis 2...Zimmer and Balfe wrote 15 minutes of music, Slavov and Sillescu over 75, and yet Zimmer's name has the biggest font on the front cover. Marketing, dear boy.

Mike2013-10-05 21:18:19
Oh, absolutely, but it's unfair to Lorne all the same.

MacArthur2013-10-05 23:44:34
Agreed But Slavov and sillescu's stuff ain't bad

Macejko2013-10-05 23:59:41
Lorne should be happy he gets to work this much, no matter what the credits are.

MacArthur2013-10-06 00:40:19
Agreed with Macejko

Evenstar2013-10-06 12:00:15
Damn, Lorne should be a known name by now...

Mike2013-10-06 21:38:51
I know. Every time something by Hans comes out, you're bound to hear Lorne somewhere in there.

Ds2013-10-07 15:24:01
I just read an official promotional thing for the game, and it says "a true cinematic experience (the music was composed by Hans Zimmer) ...."

Mike2013-10-07 16:30:33

Mike2013-10-07 22:55:03
All the commenters on various sites are going, "OMG HANS ZIMMER IS SO AMAZING I'M SO EXCITED". Well, if you're looking for a Zimmer score, prepare to be disappointed. I can't count the number of people who, to this day, think Hans Zimmer wrote all the music in Modern Warfare 2. He did what, 5 minutes? Lorne Balfe did an hour or more, and no one gives him any attention.

Mike2013-10-07 22:58:52
Heck, one guy thought Zimmer scored Assassin's Creed III. Is his named attached to that one at all?

Edmund Meinerts2013-10-08 00:54:24
Well I saw a YouTube comment once that said Enya did the scores to all three Lord of the Rings movies so never underestimate the idiocy of fanboys. And the people marketing these scores know exactly how to play said fanboys. ;)

MacArthur2013-10-08 02:56:42
Exactly. Now Zimmer might have helped on this score (Maybe like in CoDmw2) but I think that you guys are dead on this is a balfe score (unlike the Bible) I don't know why Zimmer is Credited.

lori2013-10-08 04:22:45

MacArthur2013-10-08 06:05:53
My bad I meant Dead right. sorry

Edmund Meinerts2013-10-08 12:52:26
MacArthur, you seem to have this weird beef about proving that everything with Zimmer's name on it is, in fact, by Zimmer...even though more often than not his contribution is fairly minimal. I remain skeptical about his involvement with The Bible and am much more inclined to believe that Balfe did most of the heavy lifting. It's probably a similar situation to Henri IV, which is a Henry Jackman score from beginning to end, but has Zimmer's name on the front presumably to try and sell a few extra units. Although with The Bible at least it seems Zimmer provided a couple themes/cues.

Mike2013-10-08 14:05:46
MacArthur, do you see Zimmer credited here with any kind of real composition? He's neither credited as "composer" nor as a guy who wrote "additional music". He's the producer. He might give the general idea of a sound to go for, he might do some mixing, but the actual writing was up to Lorne and the four additional guys. Now I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we were to learn that Zimmer did write SOMETHING for this score, but until we hear otherwise, don't assume he did.

Now, there was indeed a video of Hans and Lorne discussing it, and all the news sites are indeed giving Hans lots of credit, but as Edmund said, that's because Zimmer's name will sell titles. Lorne's won't.

Mike2013-10-08 14:07:40
Though to be fair, you didn't say, "I'm sure Zimmer helped on this score", you said, "Zimmer may have", which is essentially what I hypothesized just above.

Anonymous2013-10-08 15:23:13
Over at Audio Media there's this:

"We believe that with the addition of Ellen Page, Willem Dafoe, and now Hans Zimmer with the soundtrack – we were really looking for the best, most talented people out there to create the emotion in Beyond, and we have a beautiful soundtrack in the game," said Beyond creator and Quantic Dream CEO David Cage.

MacArthur2013-10-08 17:35:14
One thing I never said Zimmer did it I said (like Mike said) he may have had a hand in it.
The thing with the Bible score is for one don't trust the media. But For the Bible score not only did the media praise Zimmer for his score but the Director's said that his score made the series better, plus Zimmer did a bunch interviews about "his" score. Now for this one I have no doubt in my mind that this is a Balfe score Like I said before Zimmer Might have done like a main theme or something but until told otherwise Balfe will bring the cows home with this one. (with the Media saying Zimmer did it lol)

Casey2013-10-08 20:33:12
In a book about John Woo, there is a quotation from Zimmer along the lines of how people said Face/Off worked so well with "his score". As we know, Powell was the composer!

MacArthur2013-10-08 23:14:29
Your Point?

Mike2013-10-08 23:24:15
Casey's point is that as soon as Zimmer's name is attached to something, people think he wrote it (Zimmer was the score producer for "Face/Off" by John Powell).

MacArthur2013-10-09 01:39:12
I see. Face off is known as a John Powell score though.

T-Mann0362013-10-12 00:38:39
And "Chill Factor" was scored mostly by John Powell as well.

Hybrid Soldier2013-10-12 00:47:27
Chill Factor was almost equally scored by John Powell, Klaus Badelt & Jeff Rona, with help by McKee Smith, Zanelli & Jimmy Levine.

HZ did 2 cues... :P

Mike2013-10-12 19:51:12
Yeah, Wikipedia says Zimmer was the principal composer on Chill Factor...How reliable that site is!

Yeah it's no big deal, I just know how you got it and asked permission myself from LB's team to put it out, and they didn't want it out yet (even if it's supposed to be out in like 2 weeks lol).

Anyway... Great score btw. Weird to hear LB with a real orchestra once in a while... ;)

Mike2013-09-28 20:55:15
Funny you mention the real orchestra thing, because I was just thinking about how Lorne's scores can sound so cheap--even if the music itself is good. Skylanders, Crysis 2, and Assassin's Creed 3 all sound overly synthy and fake.

MacArthur2013-09-28 21:39:29
Crysis 2 Is mainly Zimmer.

Mike2013-09-29 00:22:40
Okay, but Lorne is involved with it, and it still has the problem. ;)

MacArthur2013-09-29 01:57:46
No, I know It is mainly The Other 2 But the Theme Stuff is Mainly Zimmer.

Such as
Crysis Intro
Under Siege
Prophet Journey

MacArthur2013-09-29 05:52:59
Agreed With you Mike the synth sound was there a little to much. But Epilogue And The Intro weren't too bad of all of them those sounded real. Especially the end of epilogue
