Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.
Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before DunkirkHere's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D
*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.I hope Dunkirk wins just to make the so-called "reviewers" and those who say it isn't music, more frustrated and annoyed.@badbu &#128077;<br><br>I honestly don't know how a complete score is going to work. They weren't kidding when they said the music is done like one long track. <br><br>What I understood from a Q&A with Nolan is that they didn't do it the usual way which means there are cues that are cut together / exist as segments. This was done in a different way where to create such cues, they used automation graphs to bring the layers in and out. Very complex. <br><br>One of the reasons why I think this deserves to win so many awards.Well it has officially been nominated. Fingers crossed for the complete score nowyep ahmad! 100% right
The score is brilliant. It does its purpose very well and it is an essential part of the movie. It's also the most creative of the bunch with the way it was recorded and edited.I'd like Hans to win another Oscar but please, not for this.YES HANS!!! The second Oscar is COMMING! :DMesa is a cue in the film and it has to match with what's happening in the scene. <br><br>Blade Runner is an end credits suite which allows the themes to breathe a little. I think the two versions are identical when it comes to pitch.If it's nominated for the Oscar, the complete score will be released. So it should be out these weeks.

Does exists a CD-Album from this Score or is this Soundtrack Digital Download only?

Hi Hybrid, not sure where to post this, but BBC recently released a preview to Planet Earth II, composed by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea, Jasha Klebe.

https://www.facebook.com/bbcearth/videos/1253466768020210/

Do you have more information about this? I heard that Zimmer created the main theme/title theme.

Any news about the longer release of the score?


Anonymous2016-04-08 09:55:45
No, and there won't be a longer release. Enjoy what you already have. :D


pajac2016-04-15 23:52:18
Thomas Farnon has one unreleased track on his website ;)

I'm pretty sure the theme here is exactly how HZ started his "Moody Bruce New Hero Suite..." :P

A couple of extracts added !


Ds2015-11-21 10:45:29
Beautiful! ... But why is this release so short? Is there only 19min of music in this whole series? I d doubt that :-p


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-21 11:04:50
There's a CD planned in december... Madison Gate Records says this is an "EP"... So I guess the CD will be longer... Lorne will as usual put some more on his website as well...

Wait & see ! lol


Evenstar2015-11-21 18:12:08
good news Hybrid, thanks


Johannes2015-11-22 09:47:28
Hey Hybrid Soldier, sorry for asking, i saw there some questions about A.D. so i would like to know if there gonna be full release or more soundtrack on Lorne´s web site. Thank you!


Kalmi2015-12-26 09:17:43
Hello, does anyone know what happened to the Sony CD planned to be released on 4th December? I can't find it anywhere. It is still listed at most sites but it is "out of stock". However I haven't found any info on that it had actually been released.

Lejti reply Replies: 10 || 2015-11-13 23:36:26
Lorne Balfe did 13 Hours (Michael Bay movie) score, Hybrid any information about the reason why Balfe replaced Jablonsky? I know it never was official Jablonsky doing it, but I was thinking a Bay movie will have a Jablonsky score.


Ds2015-11-14 00:43:36
... and Hans Zimmer is listed as executive music producer. Balfe + Zimmer + Bay, I think we'll get a very good score!!


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:07:00
Who knows what happened... Maybe Jablonsky dropped, maybe Jablonsky was never in, maybe he was fired... That's life lol...


Ds2015-11-14 01:19:17
After so many collaborations, I don't think Bay would have to fire Jablonsky. Surely they came to a point where they understand perfectly each other, Jabs should know how to please Bay. I'd bet on a scheduling issue.


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:21:57
Or maybe Steve had no interest in doing Lone Survivor again ? Especially after on that one only 20% of his whole score was used...


I don't know... But well in the end Lorne co-scored 2 films for Bay already, they know each other as well...


Anonymous2015-11-14 01:25:57
TF2 & TF3?


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:28:23
1 & 2... Especially 1...


Ds2015-11-14 01:33:21
Hmmm that's interesting. Btw, do you have an idea of the kind of role Hans played (plays?) in this project?


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:34:54
Probably like on Terminator... Some synth programming to help "define" the sound, giving constant feedback on the cues, going to all the meetings with production & stuff... That kind of things.


Joshua 2015-11-14 04:45:41
Man this is gonna be weird, Jablonsky, to some extent has worked on every Bay film since Armageddon, 18 years ago! That's a pretty long partnership, hope its just a scheduling thing.


-,-2015-11-14 15:04:01
Please no Lrne Balfe for 13 Hours. He is one of the worst composer from RC. I don`t think, michael bay fired jablonsky, he composed the score for tmnt2 and deep water horizont. i hope he came for transformers 5 back. urgh i dont like lorne balfe!

New Hans & Lorne ! :)


Felix2015-11-08 21:04:26
Great!


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-08 22:46:19
So, new Lorne plus a theme Hans banged out on his keyboards one evening? ;)

(Just a bit of satire, guys...not meant harshly!)


Mike2015-11-12 20:18:24
Well, Edmund, you have a point... with the exception of Megamind and The Bible, most official Hans/Lorne scores have Hans doing the main theme, Lorne doing everything else. Nothing new there. ;)


...2015-11-12 20:52:12
Well at least Hans coves co-credit to Lorne. Brian Tyler is scoring loads of Shows and of course he just did the theme but he's the only one credited.


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-12 20:55:44
That's very true... I could name a few projects he did where someone else did more than half, and yet got a shitty credit... lol But I won't !!! lol


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-12 22:18:59
Why not, Hybrid? :b


Dudu2015-11-12 22:57:06
So...that's 15 projects for Lorne this year. When does that guy sleep lol??has to be the hardest worker in the industry. Can't wait til he gets his well deserved big break!


NM2015-11-13 02:15:31
Lorne is incredible.


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-13 14:12:35
His output is certainly admirable, but sometimes I can't help but wonder whether he puts quantity over quality. He's not a bad composer, far from it, and he's done some things I think are really quite solid - but the majority of his 12-15 scores a year fall into the "competent and forgettable" zone for me. Some of his additional work with Hans notwithstanding, he hasn't yet done anything I'd consider truly great. Composers like Jablonsky or HGW are more hit-and-miss, but their "hits" are much higher than Lorne's best work in my estimation and it makes me anticipate their work far more than Lorne's bi-weekly releases.

If Lorne had a year where he put out 1-2 scores at the level of Transformers or Steamboy or Sinbad or Kingdom of Heaven, that would impress me far more than yet another year of 15 two-to-three star scores.
