When Will Complete Motion Picture ScoreA total revelation about Wallfisch "Horse Theme" (AKA K/Joe's theme) and its relation with original Tears in the Rain.<br><br>http ://www.mundobso.com/bso/blade-runner-2049Just listen to "Invasion Begins", it's almost like a small suite of Shen's theme.The only MV/RC composer I ever would want to see work on James Bond is John Powell. He's more than capable of doing the sort of cool, suave, jazzy sound that Bond needs. Beyond that...maybe if Zimmer was able to go way, way, *way* back to A League of Their Own mode, that could be neat, but otherwise MV/RC style is simply not a good fit for Bond.<br><br>The Goldeneye score SUCKS. The Thomas Newman ones are only OK. Bring David Arnold back. I have spoken.Saw the movie over the weekend.The music was the best thing about the movie.not the best but the score made it 1000 times better for sure
yeah!!! He was amazing!!! After Dunkrik the best movie in 2017 (for me)Skarsgard really nailed that scene, it was the scene which made it clear how different his Pennywise is from Tim Curry's.Does the blu-ray come with a CD or digital download? Or do you have to buy the album also.Time To Float is sooo strong :-) And a nice Scene btw :-)All i'd say its worth it in a complete score is We Have To Go film version, and maybe some snippets of Seglass and Merlin's Staff variations.<br><br>Other than that, we got more music in the soundtrack than in the film since most was cut off.
Everybody is talking about Shen's Theme. I just can't figure out what his theme really is.<br>Could someone please note where in wich song and at what time his theme appears?<br><br>Thanks very much!mpolonest123 - definitely sounds like it might be inspired by it. I heard the "glockenspiel roll" employed by Bellis used in the track "Deadlights" as well. If these things are intentional nods, then it's pretty cool that the score at least acknowledges the past.I don't know if anybody stayed behind long enough to find out given that the only thing waiting at the end of the credits is one last Pennywise laugh and "IT: Chapter 1". I'd assume "Georgie's Theme" played next.Seriously, I didn't catch very much at all that was left out of the soundtrack....I DID hear alot of repeated tracks in the movie, however...So I can't say what would be notably absent. Anybody got a good example?Look at the amazing "Score A Film Music Documentary" with Hans, John Powell, Heitor Pereira, Trevor Rabin and many others composers ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K6RwDM8VFE
Well... Waymann and LP are The only ones to refer to Djwadi...<br><br>And yet no one shouted:<br><br>"Amazing!" "Revolutionary!" "I can die tomorrow, my life is complete!"<br><br>Another dropmic from Hybrid !Dudes, the score is 2h10 long, I think it is yet a lot much complete than usual !Too much Lorne Balfe talk on this site. He'll never be as good as Steve, so let's talk about Steve!<br><br><br><br>Relaaaaax, I'm kidding. They're both awesome. The best, aside from Hans.<br><br>Let's discuss this thing though .....When, for the love of God, we will finally see an MV/RC composer working on a James Bond movie. Just imagine the Bond theme, BUT done by Steve Jablonsky! It will be beyond EPIC. I know the Bond producers are very strict when it comes to the scores, but after listening to the Skyfall score, I have a feeling that an MV/RC composer can really do great things with Bond. And by the way, unlike some other Bond fans I love Eric Serra's score for GoldenEye. It's freakin awesome!@Score God - I'm not entirely sure on how this process works, but since you obviously are, I'm glad you tried to clarify it. With that out of the way - I agree, there's no need to be harsh about it. You can't expect everyone to have a clue about how this works. <br><br>What I really want to see from the complete score is the film version of We Have to Go.

What u mean like this?


James2017-07-08 00:47:43
Only to demystify the idea that the old Hans who composed everything by himself does not exist anymore. In fact he has always worked like this. Not always, ok. But in the majority of times. And he's not the only one who works like that. Danny Elfman also has limited knowledge of technical writing of music and works almost like Hans with difference, I think, that he writes directly with samplers for most scenes.

Here's John's interview.

Interesting that John Powell uses the term "ghost writers". Can we now just admit that that's what it is.


isildur2017-07-08 20:35:22
No. Ghost writing is when no one knows who worked on that score. Everybody knows who did what on almost all the scores of Hans. He never backed away from giving credits to those who worked on the score. There are many other composers who take help from their so-called "ghost writers" and nobody even mentions their names anywhere.


ghosts2017-07-08 21:45:56
Thanks for the attempt at an explanation but I think I'll take John Powell's opinion over yours.

I don't really see anything wrong with it as long as everyone's happy with the outcome. But the denial that that's what it is, is ridiculous.

Lynk reply Replies: 0 || 2017-07-08 07:04:24
"Supermarine" is about the closest the composer has come to writing a spiritual "sequel" to "Synchrotone" from Black Hawk Down to me.

It is quite a "busy" tune - even busier than Synchrotone. Among all that's going on in this cue, I particularly like those faint sound effects in the background that resemble plane flybys or plane engines or whatever that truly is.

Stylistically speaking though, it feels more like a score for a present day conflict than something from the WW era - at least in this cue so far. I hope there is more to this score than what this particular cue represents.

Either way, I so damn miss the days of Thin Red Line, Gladiator and Last Samurai. Wish those things could become "hip" again.

Amazing! It's pure Zimmer + Nolan!


Alexander2017-07-07 15:33:28
Oh god it's a mess. To heavy on the electronics and not even a pinch of a melody.
I mean he did a lot of Dunkirk during tour break so there is the chance that he wasn't really in it you know. I mean he worked years on Inception and now he had months to do this one. The sound from 4:51 to 4:54 reminds me of some tracks from inferno. I just hope that this is the one non melodic fight track that every action/war/battle movie has.

Rescue continues from Hacksaw ridge is awesome. I hope we get something like this !


Medigo2017-07-07 15:42:18
Or maybe this is just not going to be the kind of movie/soundtrack you expected/wanted.
I am assuming this scene is supposed to be about tension rather than something heroic.
At least the length is hopefully a good indicator of other tracs lengths.

Why do we have to download this as a single on iTunes? Why not as an album pre-order.


Ahmad2017-07-07 16:05:29
@Alexander I guess you haven't seen the prologue? We knew from the beginning that we might not get a melodic/traditional score from Zimmer this time. It's very experimental and heavy on sound design. I'm so hyped to hear the rest of the score.


Alexander2017-07-07 16:14:58
Oh ok if this is the case I shouldn't Hype myself as I did. I thaught that he was Experimenting with New Sounds in Inferno or Boss Baby and that he would come back to his melodic roots for the Big scaled nolan Movies like befor in Inception or interstellar. Today I got my Angels and Demons Vinyl and of You listen to it You hear that he was Experimenting as well but it Sounds good and beautiful. I just Hope he doesn't lost it and there is at least one Nice melodic theme in the score...
Thank You for Information @Ahmad


Mephariel2017-07-07 16:25:06
Don't like it too much. Too experimental for my taste. Got to see it with the movie.


Waymann2017-07-07 16:28:03
It's just one track, it's sounds great, especially the last two minutes, it will work fine in the film for sure. This was the score I was expecting so i'm not surprised it sounds like this.

There is also not really a big main character in this film, so don't expect themes or heroic music, this movie is not about that. This is not a war film in the first place as Nolan stated before. It will be a fast paced thriller with little exposition, not another Saving Private Ryan or that overhyped Hacksaw Ridge movie. So don't even expect a score like one of those films.

BTW Interstellar is not very melodic either....


Ahmad2017-07-07 16:28:15
No problem. The thing is, the movie itself imposes a non-traditional score with it's non-traditional structure. Don't give up on this one just yet though, it's only one track out of 11.


Waymann2017-07-07 16:35:59
On the site of Water Tower Music you can click on a itunes thumbnail on the album page of Dunkirk and you will see an option between Standard, Deluxe or streaming... ? Is their going to be a deluxe edition digital ? Hybrid?


Ahmad 2017-07-07 16:41:25
"BTW Interstellar is not very melodic either...."
I kinda disagree with you @Waymann :)
I don't know what your idea of a melodic score is but the score was mostly variations of one melody accompanied by other tunes here and there.

You can sum the melodies/tunes this way:
1- Day one and it's variations (Cornfield chase, S.T.A.Y, etc...)
2-Stay and it's variations (Detach, Message from home, etc...)
3-Murph/Dust/I'm going home
4-The end of "Murph"/the end of "Detach"
5-A place among the stars/No need to come back
6-The wormhole and it's variations (Not much melody-wise but might still count)
The rest is sound design and variations of those 6 distinctive tunes.


Ahmad2017-07-07 16:42:05
Oh man! I hope there is a deluxe edition.


Alexander2017-07-07 16:53:19
I think interstellar is very melodic :D and it is interesting because Hans Said as far You Nice away from Earth as far the melody moves from its roots. It very interesting to hear it again knowing this fact. I See that there Are Not 100 melodys but if You Look at Last of the mohicans You See that it's one Main melody as well

Well I'm Pumped as f*** for the Vinyl !!! I Hope that the pressing is good and the Design as well !


Waymann2017-07-07 16:59:16
Listened 3 times now to this new track, and god I love it even more and more.

Ahmad.
I am not musically inclined, but what would you count the 'No Need for Caution' music as?


Ahmad 2017-07-07 17:41:44
@Medigo
It's definitely a variation of "Day One" aka the main theme :)


Joseph Solano2017-07-07 18:37:29
This track is really intense. Like really intense.


mpolonest123 2017-07-07 20:11:48
Just going by this track alone I'm not really sure what to think. I do love the style and energy here but.... it feels like it's missing a solid theme. Almost like this is the base/background meant to underlay a track while the orchestra plays over it. Oh well, it's gonna work wonders to picture most likely (unless it's a suite).


Alexander2017-07-07 20:43:41
@mpolonest123 total Agree with You ! It's an interesting idea to bring back the clicking sound from thin red line back. But as in Journey to the line the klicking sound was in the Backround to create atmosphere. I absolutly Agree with You and Hope that there is a Suite with this interesting sound in the Backround.


Ahmad2017-07-07 21:40:02
You guys really need to see the prologue to really get how the score works in that movie. The music just fits perfectly. Lots of ticking, lots of humming, lots of movement. The ticking speeds up and gets faster with the action. Although I like this I think it would've better if they had released that instead. I guess they don't want give away the goods too soon. So either go see the prologue in a theater near you (if you're lucky) or try to find the bootleg.


Mike (OTM)2017-07-07 22:34:14
It sounds like "Initiate the Tow," which Hans did in Captain Phillips. :P

Vinyl will be released on Octobre 13th.

Yeah ok, Interstellar has some melodic themes but has a lot of sound design too. Especially when you listen to the complete score and the suites. But I think the Interstellar score an genre on it's own. haha


Ahmad2017-07-07 16:56:05
I totally agree. What's interesting is that a lot of the sound design elements on Interstellar sounded very organic and not as in your face as other Sci-Fi scores. Hell, he even programmed wind and waves for the score lol.

According to Amazon, it's a double vinyl release, it's a good indicator that the album is not short at all (At least not as short as Inception).

Nick reply Replies: 8 || 2017-07-04 02:31:36
So, I'm going to be honest - I'm not a huge fan of Zimmer/Nolan collaborations. While I believe Interstellar is a highlight in Zimmer's portfolio, the rest of Nolan's scores are, to say the very least, distant seconds.

Like all other film composers, Hans Zimmer's music is heavily influenced by the director and his distinct style. In my mind, HZ scores from Gore Verbinski and Ron Howard films are my favorites (with Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons being #1), and you can easily tell why - both directors are very charismatic and aesthetically pleasing, narratively and visually. That sense of color and personality likewise translates to Zimmer's music, producing scores that can be jaunty, frightening, and classically epic.

Nolan, however, is a different story. I am a fan of Nolan as well, but compared to others, his directing style is very stoic and monochromatic and heavy; there's very little wiggle room for a liberating sense of fun or enjoyment. Not saying that's a bad thing, but that style shows itself in the scores, and let me be honest, it's much more pleasing on the eyes than it is the ears. Batman, Man of Steel, Inception, they're all the same to me - at best, pensive and reflective; at worst, muddy and bland.

To me, they suffice as background music, to kind of zone out to while I'm preoccupied with something else. With other scores, I'm fully engaged in the soundscape, picking it apart and losing myself in the music - but in my view it's kind of pointless with these aforementioned scores. If I had to describe them with a word, I'd say "serviceable."

That being said, I'm looking forward to Dunkirk with enthusiasm, but only with the hope that Zimmer and Friends can produce something unique and engaging, something that breaks the mold set by other Nolan scores.


mpolonest123 2017-07-04 05:33:11
I both completely agree and disagree with you.

With regards to Nolan I do understand how his films come across as ultra-serious, heavy handed. Especially in the tones and performances. At the same time I think his strengths as a filmmaker (and the aforementioned performances/cinematography) do compensate. Hell, Interstellar had the best balance of stoicism and genuine human emotion. Could they be more fun? Definitely, although something like Dunkirk wouldn't benefit from levity.

Now on to where I disagree, at least partially. Zimmer. If you go through each of the scores he did for Nolan, they are fairly different from each other. Batman Begins couldn't be further in tone or style from Interstellar. Just like Inception and TDK are at different ends of the spectrum. And MoS (since you mentioned it) is almost nothing like the Nolan scores outside of similar instrumentation. I think the key difference between the Nolan/Zimmer collaboration and other collabs is that on a Nolan film Zimmer tends to have a more suite based approach. They basically function as library scores initially. Compare that to something like Rush, where Zimmer scored to picture. Both approaches work imo, and I definitely wouldn't say Interstellar or TDK are bland. Maybe oppressive, but even JNH's contributions to the Batman films show more emotion than given credit for.


Nick2017-07-04 07:26:41
@mpolonest123 As I mentioned, in my opinion Interstellar stands alone in terms of the risks Zimmer took and how they paid off in the end.

What I don't understand is when people cite Nolan's Batman trilogy or Inception as some of Zimmer's best work. Both are similar to each other in the fact that they're slow, churning, more reliant on sound design and sonic ambiance than melody, and they are heavily derivative from Zimmer's past projects (TDK is just a stripped-down regurgitation of prior action scores).

To put it simply, they're just exercises of pure brawn and melancholy. Like I said before, it's serviceable and complementary to the context of the film, but outside, on their own, it's borderline intolerable to me.


Mephariel2017-07-04 20:07:58
If you are talking about isolated listening experience, then I think Interestellar is the only Nolan score that I really enjoy listening to from beginning to end. It is undeniable however that some of Zimmer's best cues came out of his Nolan scores: "Time" from Inception, "Like Dog Chasing Cars" from The Dark Knight, "No Time for Caution" from Interstellar. But I disagree with your idea that all his Nolan score sounds the same. I don't think Batman sounds like Man of Steel or Interstellar.

I also disagree when you said his Nolan scores are only "serviceable." Interstellar is one of the greatest scores of all time imo, and is absolutely magical when watched with the movie. I would almost say the score drove the film more than the other way around. It is also Zimmer's best work since Angels and Demons.

The Dark Knight is not one of my favorites, but it has more soul and identity than almost any other superhero scores out there. If you think about all the Marvel scores, I serious can't remember a single note from those movies other than The Avengers theme and Patrick Doyle's incredible score for Thor. But I can remember Zimmer's two note motif no problem as well as the progression leading to those notes.

The one thing that I agree is probably the fact that Zimmer's career at this point could use more Howard or Verbinski style scoring. I am really looking forward to Dunkirk, but we really don't need another solemn, dignify, reflective score from Zimmer about war.



mpolonest123 2017-07-04 22:27:05
@Nick

To each his own, I can understand why the scores you mentioned may not work for some people. For me, TDK works because it is basically world-building in musical form. You have the insane sound design for Joker, the traditional scoring for Harvey, and the pure Zimmer action/chord progressions for Batman. Some sections may be generic sound design (an issue I had with Batman Begins) but from start to finish it tells a story, and basically revolutionized action music when it came out. You definitely have to judge it as a sum of its parts.

Now Inception on the other hand, is somewhat overrated imo. It's a good score, and has a great blend of electronic styles that match perfectly with the film, but doesn't offer the same variety or development as something like At World's End. People just seem to really connect with "Time"


Mephariel2017-07-05 01:03:06
@mpolonest123

Definitely. I love the concept of Inception's score: blending electronic guitar with classical arrangements. But the score is just a tad too underdeveloped to me. The cues are all interesting but not fleshed out enough. Conceptually, the score is incredible, but the execution just fell short.

And yes, without question "Time" elevated the score, or else Inception wouldn't even be top 20 on my list of Zimmer scores. "Time" is just one of those special cues that captures your emotions into a bubble every time it plays. Your life literally flash before your eyes when listening to it. Introspective and moving. Simple, yet profound.


Bolidzar2017-07-05 22:10:14
Interesting. I think that Nolan brings out a genuine side of Zimmer that results in orginal performances as opposed to recycled cues for movies past (Gladiator/PotC). That is one thing I've always loved about their relationship.


Ian McCarthy2017-07-06 01:53:56
Bolidzar - you make a good point; I think I've listened to all of the Nolan/Zimmer scores, and I don't recall any apparent temp-tracking or reuse of cues, except in the case of something like TDKR reusing cues from the previous Nolan Batman films. Nonetheless, I think the issues of these scores generally being slow, churning, lacking melody, etc remain.


future2017-07-06 10:39:06
no reuse of temp-tracks or other cues? what about the 'time'-cue, where all girls screaming out loud when they hear the first tones? it's just a 'journey to the line' 2.0, which zimmer itself said that in an interview.

Those 11 tracks could be each over ten minutes long and the album be pushing two hours for all you know.


Waymann2017-06-28 13:13:46
This album will probably around 1 hour... Inception had 12 tracks and was 49 minutes without the two bonus tracks.


Ahmad 2017-06-28 14:14:22
Definitely not two hours though since CDs are limited to 74-80mins of audio. I was hoping for an extended digital deluxe edition.


mpolonest123 2017-06-28 15:26:10
While it would be unusual for a Zimmer/Nolan collab to not have any suites, we still don't know how much music is in the film itself. Take 12YAS for example; a 2 hour movie with only 40 minutes of score. For all we know, this release might be 80% of the music written.... or more.

Now if it's anything like Inception (which is such a disappointing album) then this will be a letdown.


MrZimmerFan2017-06-28 15:29:16
I love Inception

;P


Ahmad2017-06-28 15:33:31
The movie is 1H47Mins long with credits. If credits are 7 minutes long, we're left with a 100 minute movie (who knows how much music was written/used). Not to mention the relentless pace. I want to believe that we might get everything we want/need out of this release but I'm really not sure.


mpolonest123 2017-06-28 16:09:06
@MrZimmerFan Oh I love Inception too, it's a great score. But that album situation though.,.. missing some major cues. At least Interstellar was a solid release, only missing one major track.


JBSO992017-06-29 10:35:05
@mpolonest123 But that one track got us out of our mind because they did many different releases, and I think that until the compete score appeared, we couldn't heard it. Luckily it didn't took it too long to appear.

Also I cannot wait for this score, I love all collaborations between Zimmer and Nolan and I hope they do a release with suites or demos or something like that like in Interstellar.

And one last thing, If the movie is about 107 minutes long we may get a very complete release in this album. I cannot wait!!!

I'll never forget how thrilling it was when I watched Interstellar, once the cd was released after the movie, because Hans and Nolan wanted us to feel the images and sound together. I'll do the same with Dunkirk and all further movies with these amazing director and composer.


Mephariel2017-06-27 08:48:33
Yeah, I don't think I can help it, but I really want to watch the movie first before listening to the score.

With Interstellar, it was a magical experience, especially when Cornfield Chase was playing and No Time for Caution melding perfectly with the docking scene.


Waymann2017-06-27 09:25:38
I always like hearing a score first before I go in. Especially with a film like this. When I haven't heard the score first I pay too much attention to the music so I can take everything in but then I stop using attention to the movie itself. But in case with Dunkirk the movie comes out few day before the score gets released in my country.

11 Tracks (amazon.fr) but no titles :-)


Manulder2017-06-23 15:49:08
Sorry :-)


Waymann2017-06-23 15:54:26
Great, another soundtrack we can wait for to get the complete score.


Kalman2017-06-23 15:58:55
I wonder if there will be a special edition too. The latest albums from Hans that came out on the WaterTower label all had a special edition release as well.

I don't know if I should pre-order it or wait a couple weeks to see whether a double CD edition will follow. Would be good to know...


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-23 16:02:48
There won't be a 2 CD.

Anyway the film is pretty short, 1h45, so I guess Hans everything he needed in this release.


Medigo2017-06-23 16:07:11
Lets pray for the FYC to be huge like it was for Interstellar


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-23 16:13:37
Well I hope Hans "could" credit everybody and disqualify himself from the "FYC" award races like he loves to... But not easy with a Nolan movie !


Iamtommie2017-06-23 16:46:03
Why does evrybody assume that the album will be short. Mayne the ttack lengths are 10 or maybe 16 minutes long. He's done it before on Crimson Tide. This had 5 tracks and an hour of playtime.
So who knows. Mayne it's a score more than 1 hour.


Kalman2017-06-23 17:30:50
Thanks for the info, Hybrid! Anyway, it's really strange that a war epic is maybe Nolan's shortest film so far. He barely seems to be able to make a movie under 140 minutes.


Mephariel2017-06-23 18:34:06
I suspect this film is all about intensity. I think none of the characters will get an introduction. The movie will just start in the middle of the war.


sverige19772017-06-24 19:43:15
Is Dunkirk also released on vinyl?


isildur2017-06-24 20:49:27
@Mephariel, You are right. And it is not exactly a war film. It's more like a suspense thriller. Whether they'll get home (we know they will) but it's more about how they will and how each of them experience this journey.


isildur2017-06-24 20:55:46
Hybrid, how big is the contribution of Balfe, Mazzarro, Kawczynski in this? Is it more like Hans wrote everything like in Interstellar or is it more like his "Jamming with a band" kind of thing?

Joshua reply Replies: 1 || 2017-06-24 19:54:38
Variation 15 (Dunkirk) - Hans maybe letting us in on how many times he had to rework this cue? lol


James2017-06-24 20:22:31

Broken Note reply Replies: 4 || 2017-06-23 13:43:56
It will be interesting to hear what the score will sound like since Mazzaro and Kawczynski is on the team. Hope it will be heavy on the electronics and sound like Chappie :D


Iamtommie2017-06-23 14:47:50
I hope it's going to be something in between 'Inception' & 'Interstellar'. I hope there are not as much electronics as in Chappie.


Andres2017-06-23 15:05:11
That's what worries me . Having them in it doesn't excite me. I am excited though to see Balfe back working with Zimmer and Nolan.


Alexander2017-06-23 15:16:43
I hope that Hans will punch out his next big thing with Dunkirk and I hope that they will not use electronics that much. It is a Hans Zimmer score so for sure there will be electronics but I hope on something that sounds like "Journey to the line" or inception for sure. You know what would be cool ?! To hear something that sounds like the live version on "Journey to the line" for sure another melody but something that is as mighty as the live version. I really like the drums in it at the end they put much more pressure in it and make it sound heavier. I don't mean the drum solo at the end but the part before that when the main melody kicks in.


...2017-06-23 15:38:57
I hope Hans does something inventive and interesting with the orchestra and not just relies on electronics! The best zimmer scores are in my opinion where the orchestra does the heavy lifting and not the synths!

The fact that Nolan said throw out the percussion and string ostinatos when they did Interstellar is a good sign and I hope Dunkirk won't go back to that style!

Can't wait for the soundtrack . Also Lorne Balfe is doing additional music ???? That's been a while ? But Hans best scores recently were with Balfe unlike Chappie etc .

According to amazon.de the Dunkirk soundtrack will be released by Sony Classical on July 21. No special edition announced yet, one disc only.


Waymann2017-06-13 14:11:33
Luckily not 2 weeks after the release of the movie like interstellar. That's kind of frustrating.

Release is postponed to July 28 :(

Hi there :) Which ones are Blake's composed Themes for the movie "The Da Vinci Code"?

isildur reply Replies: 10 || 2017-06-04 22:37:17
Hey Hybrid, was listening to the "HZ's Obsession" on your youtube channel. Real nice spotting dude.


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-04 22:43:42
;)

Hans once said it was a mix between Dies Irae and a German nursery rhyme...

For sure it has haunted him somehow for many years ! lol


isildur2017-06-04 23:14:54
Wow! No wonder all those tracks are amazing. Dies Irae inspiring also makes sense since all those movies somehow deal with the concept of death.


Vivien2017-06-05 00:21:25
I love this melody since I heard it in Angels and Demons !


mpolonest123 2017-06-05 01:42:19
Funnily enough this has always been one of my favorite melodies throughout HZ's career, particularly the "dancing string" variation from Hannibal.

Would Lois's theme from MoS and the Oscorp motif from ASM2 also count as this?


mpolonest123 2017-06-05 01:48:59
And for that matter, the "Woad" theme at 5:50 in Woad to Ruin definitely uses the riff.

Great video Hybrid btw!


Agustin2017-06-07 00:32:28
In the road to el Dorado there are some epic versions of this motiff, with chours and stuff.

I had never noticed it was also in interstellar until now. I think, at this point, it's like the wilhelm scream of Hans music, it has to be in every soundtrack.


Nonore2017-06-09 01:30:16

Two days ago, we did an interview with Hans in Prague and he said, that Dunkirk was the most demanding score he has ever worked on! :) So, I guess we have something to be looking for!!


Lynk2017-06-06 15:50:31
mmm... Last time we heard the man say something in those lines was during Da Vinci Code.

Mephariel2017-05-26 08:25:03
She did 32 hours of Cello work for this...wow.


JBSO992017-05-26 12:26:35
32 hours!!! I think this will be played as a lament in a slow-motion scene where it looks like they're gonna get killed. Cannot wait for it!


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-26 14:15:59
There's no kill like overkill. Plus another thing that'll sound good for the inevitable Hans/Nolan PR train I guess. *shrug*

Lorne Balfe attached to score Horse Soldiers.

They guy is everywhere.

Just read that on film music reporter . Lorne has to be the most in demand composer at the moment . Amazing how busy he is and really enjoying his score to Genius
