God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.
can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/
@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the scoreas for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?
Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feelingMancina's theme + Ad Astra + MW:2= Bad boys for Life.Please enlighten me on how Bad Boys 3 sounds the same as Lego Batman or Genius: Picassowhy his music always sound the same...if he doesn't have time why he keep scoring more and more films per year? is it all about money?

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
Where could we find this video, please ?

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.

Tina Guo recorded cello for Dunkirk. I'm really excited.


Bioscope2017-05-25 17:20:26
Ditto :)


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.


Anton2017-05-24 23:10:50
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

Mephariel reply Replies: 17 || 2017-05-05 23:45:30
Excited for this!

Hybrid, is the music from the newest trailer actually from the score?

Also, is this a solo effort from Hans Zimmer?


Mike (OTM)2017-05-06 15:10:53
Same question about "solo Zimmer" - Interstellar felt really special for that. :) I'm expecting Steve Mazzaro in some capacity, though.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-06 15:41:04
I know who worked on it but I'm waiting for the "official" credits before dropping everything, it was not an easy journey (but it rarely is !) !


Joshua2017-05-07 20:56:45
Hybrid, you saying that this was not an easy journey really is interesting. I was thinking about this about a week ago when I read an interview with Zimmer, and he said he was having to finish cues for Dunkirk on the tour bus between shows! And it just struck me as odd because in the past Zimmer and Nolan seem to wrap post fairly early on. With it being 2 months from the release and Zimmer is still working on it seemed strange. Very interested to hear what happened here.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-07 21:02:25
And Hans still has a faithful lieutenant working on it on site while he's touring ! Not unknown to Nolan ! ;)


Joshua2017-05-07 21:33:32
Wow, and the plot thickens lol.


Mephariel2017-05-07 22:18:11
Hybrid, is this is synth score primarily or are there going to be orchestrated sections?

Looking back, I think maybe he took on too many projects last year. He started Dunkirk in January 2016 right? In between then and now, he was involved in The Crown, Planet Earth II, Hidden Figures, The Boss Baby while having 2 months off on tour.



Ahmad2017-05-07 23:37:45
Zoe Zimmer (Hans' daughter) shared a photo and a video of Hans and Chris in a studio recording a brass section. I hope that answers your question.


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-08 01:53:30
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that none of those four projects you listed there, Mephariel, were exactly hands-on ones for Hans... ;)


Joshua2017-05-08 20:14:22
Yeah, Hans and Nolan's relationship has been super experimental since the beginning. Nolan encourages it, so I doubt Nolan would be the cause of the headaches (though i could be wrong). But to me this reeks of studio interference.


Joshua2017-05-08 20:15:43
And yeah, I doubt it has anything to do with Hans' other projects he had last year. His role in those seemed minimal.


Mike (OTM)2017-05-08 20:38:00
Alright, so this one is definitely a co-score, then. D'you think the other guy working on it will get front cover credit, or no? You can never tell with Zimmer's projects. Seems to be that credits depend on a whim. Ha.


Joshua2017-05-08 21:17:36
God how awesome would it be if it was James Newton Howard again. (Wishful thinking...)


Mike (OTM)2017-05-08 23:33:51
Well, JNH did work on Hans Zimmer Live recently and posted a FB video about it. Maybe there's more to this than we've been told! ;)

Sadly, though, the realistic side of me doubts it.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-08 23:49:02
I talked with James there ! (I'm even on that video at some point ! lol ;))

And no he's quite busy with his own stuff !


Joshua2017-05-09 00:44:19
Well we know it cant be Steve because he's on the road with Zimmer. My money is on Lorne ;)


isildur2017-05-09 07:31:15
"Not unknown to Nolan!" Well, it's obviously Lorne. He did work extensively on Inception. So, no worries. Lorne knows what to do.


isildur2017-05-21 15:12:36
Told ya! Now, officially it's Lorne.

Joseph Solano reply Replies: 18 || 2017-05-10 03:45:37
This score in my mind will be a masterpiece. I can't explain why, I just do. I wonder how similar or disimilar to The Thin Red Line.


Kalman2017-05-10 12:28:18
I really hope you're right because what I heard in the latest trailer didn't convince me at all. I hope it was not from Hans' score (can anyone confirm it is from the actual score or not?) Or, at least, that the score itself will be much, much better.


JBSO992017-05-10 17:07:41
Well, the music from the trailers, if it's from the composer of the film, generally is music for making the trailer look awesome and they use cheap composing ways to create this, but the score it's usually by far better than the trailer music.
And it's Zimmer with Nolan, nothing bad can come from this two working together!


TomMuso2017-05-10 19:54:25
Remember when Balfe did he trailer for Inception and that included Hans music in it .


no2017-05-10 22:24:31
Lorne didn't compose from Dunkirk.
He said official Facebook page.


Mephariel2017-05-10 22:47:27
I wonder who then. Rupert Gregson-Williams?


Joshua2017-05-10 23:21:50
Kawczynski?! Is that mate why he's not on tour this time?


Joshua2017-05-10 23:23:20
*maybe


no2017-05-11 03:30:02
I don't think Hans giving responsibility Kawczynski. Hans i guess finish March on the Dunkirk score. Maybe again solo job Hans.


Andreas2017-05-11 10:12:53
It would be great if it was Balfe . Call of Duty was one of the best game scores. They are a great team


no2017-05-11 17:21:11
Lorne is not co-composer on Dunkirk dude.


Andreas2017-05-11 19:31:01
Why not Dude ! Why shouldn't he get credit for what he does? He was all over the last Kung Fu Panda and didn't get any credit !


Mike2017-05-11 22:50:46
I agree it would be great for Balfe to get proper great. Not sure why he doesn't seem to be given proper co credit ? Sherlock for a co - producer .


Olivia2017-05-12 02:17:38
Probably is Balfe. He is scoring something for Warner. Source: facebook.


Mephariel2017-05-12 02:48:36
Balfe could be talking about Geostorm, not Dunkirk.


Joshua2017-05-14 01:03:16
@no was literally wrong about everything he said above lol :):):):) Very cool that Balfe is back on a Nolan film.


Joseph Solano2017-05-14 01:32:01
@JBS099 The music from the teaser might be because it sounds a lot like Winter Soldier.


Andreas2017-05-14 21:33:46
Wow wow wow !!! Balfe is back on board . This will be good and very excited now


Olivia2017-05-21 05:57:21
No one orchestrator? Hum... The score entire will electronic, then?

Hybrid, was Lorne the guy working "on-site"? And is this another "music produced by Lorne Balfe" score, i.e., co-composed by Lorne Balfe?


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-13 23:35:47
I don't think so, Hans was on it for a year and a half. Lorne's been there for a couple of months, Andrew probably more. I think they're FINALLY done by now (about time !!! lol) !


mpolonest123 2017-05-13 23:42:17
If Satnam is doing some additional music expect some killer percussive elements...


NM2017-05-14 00:24:49
What the hell is Lorne made of? The guy never stops writing!


Mephariel2017-05-14 01:31:20
I wonder when the musicians will be listed and if Tino Guo or Martin Tillman has any role in this. Cello performances seem like a staple in a solemn, dark, moody Zimmer film.

Hell yeah. I'm still wondering if the music in the second half of the first trailer (trailer #2) is Hans or not. I guess we won't get any confirmation until the movie/score comes out in July.


JBSO992017-05-06 12:00:43
It isn't too soon for this? Well I don't mind. I would love to hear it as soon as possible but until the movie, probably we won't get to hear anything. The music from the trailers is from Zimmer?
