I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*
OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :pHi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

Cheers mateI agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?
Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)Yeah, that theme starting at 1:35 is totally Black Rain! I love it though.So is nobody going to point out that Hans just casually slipped a theme from Black Rain into the middle of "Millennium Theme"...like, note for note? :pI hope there will be an album for Angel Has Fallen by 	David Buckley.PM me on YouTube for further questions.

Listening to this complete score and once again it strikes me how much weaker, quieter, less punchy recording sessions frequently sound when compared to the equivalent album tracks. The Pirates of the Caribbean completes have the same problem. It puts me in kind of a conundrum because take from this score "Runaway Train" vs. its album track "The Railroad Waits for No One". The percussion in particular sounds so much more satisfying and prominent in the latter. So do I take the version with the two extra minutes of material, or the version that sounds much more vibrant and exciting to listen to? Or do I edit together some weird mixture of the two (which is actually what I did, but that's an imperfect solution too because a) it's time-consuming and b) then the track constantly moves back and forth between two different mastering styles which is distracting).

Not to mention the huge chunks of silence at the beginning and end (and sometimes middle) of tracks, and the crappy sound quality on "Ride Out/Spirit Horse" and "Aftermath Village Slaughter". It's great to be able to hear these recording sessions but sometimes their flaws are too irritating to ignore...it's quite clear that they weren't prepared for consumption at all, and getting them to the point where you can listen to them is hard work sometimes!


Mike (OTM)2018-05-02 15:45:11
I noticed that with The Dark Knight Rises... a lot of the cues sound like demos almost, even the final versions, where the score in-film is a lot more polished.


Mr Tweedy2018-05-02 18:58:22
That's why I'm mastering my bootlegs before givin them a "real" listen.
Though you can't really master stereo files the same way studios do masterings (with separate layers of instruments), I manage to add some noticeable energy to the bootleg tracks.


mpolonest123 2018-05-02 19:47:24
It’s funny how certain RS are affected by this whole mastering thing while others aren’t. TASM2 and MoS sound almost perfect, while AWE has completely different instrumental layering (although in that case I prefer the more traditional sound as opposed to the bass heavy album).


Joshua2018-05-02 20:37:44
Well considering the film versions have to compete with dialogue and sound effects, it's an absolute must to make them "less punchy" or "quieter". There's only so much sonic space to play with. But with album versions you can go balls to wall. It's not a problem in the recordings. They're doing exactly what there designed to do.


Edmund Meinerts2018-05-02 21:05:58
Yeah I know, it's only a "problem" if you're listening on its own, which these files were never really meant for. I understand the circumstances, it's still just a bit frustrating.

Incidentally, I actually prefer the sessions' mix of "Train Chase" (or "Finale"). It lets the dynamics breathe a bit more whereas the album version was a bit brickwalled and over-loud and exhausting (which works okay for your usual Zimmer/RC-style simplistic power action music but not quite as well for a more dynamically orchestral piece like this; I have the same issue with Thomas Bergersen's "That's a Wrap"). Also the opening trumpet isn't quite as piercing and abrupt (I actually get a huge "jump-scare" sometimes when it comes up on shuffle). So you win some, you lose some. :)

mpolonest, I sort of agree on AWE, although I do wish the sessions had just a *bit* more power. It's not 100% traditionally composed orchestral music, after all, still has that Zimmer heavy touch which goes missing a bit in the sessions. The ideal medium would be somewhere between the sessions and the overly-loud album (which is hopefully what we'll get when that score gets an official complete release one of these years from someone like La-La-Land, which I'm perhaps foolishly optimistic it will, there's so much great unreleased material and it's a very, very popular score, with good reason).


mpolonest123 2018-05-02 21:28:13
@Edmund Well more traditional in the Zimmer sense lol.
With the first Pirates and DMC, you need to have that bass heavy “rock’n’roll” sound, AWE was always a pretty different score tonally.

As for the issues with session mastering, I always edit my copies to remove silences and boost volumes when needed. The only major issue that seems to arise is when lossy files are released. BvS, as one example, sounds atrocious in parts due to the quality of sound.


Edmund Meinerts2018-05-02 21:58:25
Boosting volume helps but it doesn't bring the music up to album levels. There's a much more involved amount of balancing/mixing/mastering that goes into albums that is far beyond my rudimentary Audacity skills...


mpolonest123 2018-05-02 22:04:57
Oh definitely not... I think you would need the stems to have a 100% perfect representation of the album sound. (Though I’m sure some people have strong enough editing skills to come close)

Two asides:

1. In Cavendish Escape (film version) there are some awesome drum placements when he exits the train with his gang that aren’t on the sessions. We’re those done by a music editor?

2. How on earth did the skeleton dance and finale cue from Curse of the Black Pearl pass the bar with those horrible bass distortions? I don’t think I’ve ever heard an official release with something as botched as that....


Edmund Meinerts2018-05-02 23:11:12
There's some pretty gnarly bass distortions in "Terraforming" from Man of Steel as well (at around the 2:30 mark) but I'm not sure those aren't on purpose...


mpolonest123 2018-05-03 02:34:28
Those are pretty noticeable, although they do fit the whole terraforming sound design in a weird way. I want to say there is some awful mixing in the Hero Fight cue from BVS as well. Actually, make that most of Junkie XL’s scores. Run All Night and Mad Max have some genuinely bad portions.

I personally prefer slashes to hyphens but as long as one or the other is used consistently, everything's cool. :)


RealFfingMusic2015-03-10 16:48:20
Well, hyphens are used to join two words. Slash is used to separate two parts of the same element. So yeah, slash is more accurate.
