so great to watch this new interview. it confirmed how i felt about wonder woman and widows. it is the right thing to do.<br><br>Hans's comment on losing his voice took me by surprise though. dunkirk touched on a few techniques i wanted to see explored more. i know other composers did it before. but i think dunkirk did a better job at putting those elements together... hopefully there is be a similar movie in the near future : )Steve is clearly spending time with his family. He had a second child just a few months ago. I think he will eventually be back on the Bay Train. <br><br>And Lorne is the right choice for a "replacement". He's been involved in one way or another with the Bay movies for more than 10 years now. He's certainly not a surprising choice and I'm looking forward to the score. It's a movie that takes place all over the world, so I have big expectations for the music.Hans says he worked so hard to get WW1 to Rupert, but didn't he also recommend that they try a female composer?Balfe has constantly been brought in on Transformers movies , so great to see him working with Bay properlyApparently we’re in the wrong country :( If I could afford it, I’d travel just to experience this.
Lorne is now listed on IMDB and Wiki as the composer of 'Six Underground'. Clearly Bay likes working with him. Good for Lorne.You're absolutely right. Play's over. Exit's that way. On your feet. Go!<br><br>Good knowing you.Steve is just trying to spend a little time with his family i think, he's not as busy as he used to be but i think it's cause he chooses that. Film Composing is an insanely time consuming job. I like Balfe a lot though.Huh. I like Jablosnky, but I really liked the 13 Hours score, so it's hard for me to complain.Maybe, Bay thinks Balfe is better than Jablonsky in terms of military tones and music.
Balfe is doing Michael Bays next movie !!! What’s happened with Jablonsky?Review widows: It's also scored by Hans Zimmer, which means it is immediately in the running for best score of the year...Blah Blah Blah...<br><br>Play's over, Shakespeare.Meta is right though...Hope it gets fixed, I love listening to the suites you add to scores here.
Nope.<br><br><br>Even if it wouldn't have helped, I guess ! lolArticle 13?Audio is down unfortunately.<br><br>Legal reasons... Nothing to do with Hans or any composer who have always been very supportive.<br><br>Maybe it'll return, maybe not...@Knight, it's not just you.Hybrid, all over the site there are no longer music extracts to listen to. For me at least, is it a universal thing?

It should be noted that I think a few tracks like 'new model' are put together with the track that came before it on the CD.

Ossuary
Return to Sappers
Must Protect the Child
Bomb
Like a Real Girl
Luv in Apartment
Mesa Hijack

I think are the only real missing tracks, and some of them are pretty short anyway.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention there's also a short track that plays when K walks through Las Vegas past the statues and beehives, but is not listed on the cuesheet

Hi, I'm new to this site and a big fan of Zimmer. Blade Runner is definitely one of his best works (and don't forget Wallfisch). Anyways, I'm definitely anticipating Denis Villeneuve's upcoming Dune film and I wonder if he'll go to Zimmer to do the project. That would be awesome if that happened.


nvictor2018-07-17 14:48:46
what about dunkirk : ) what do you think of it?


Moggyman2018-07-17 19:42:36
nvictor, I actually think Dunkirk is better than BR2049 for a couple reasons:

1) Even though BR2049 had some interesting themes, most of the soundtrack was too quiet for me and lost my interest during parts of the album. Dunkirk on the otherhand really maintained by interest almost throughout the entire album due to the intensity of the music.

2) BR2049 soundtrack feels like an attempt to mimic Vangelis' Blade Runner score, whereas Dunkirk is original and unique (except the fact that Zimmer's work isn't completely original, which doesn't bother me at all).

Just continuing this little dialogue with Max Potcats.

1. Wallfisch is a very, very fine composer but his HZ work is not his greatest by any means. Check out IT and Paperboat.

2. Hans does not give a shit anymore - agree.

3. Villeneuve and Johansson worked extremely closely on their previous projects. The decision to go with HZ was WB mandated. How do you think that impacted on a working relationship? Of course, HZ and BW are very professional but....

4. Yeah, the challenges proposed by JJ are too distinct, not to be harvested into a factory for sure.

Hello hybrid , do you know who are the other composers that works on x men dark phonix alongside hans ?

Balfe reply Replies: 3 || 2018-02-22 15:08:53

This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:

1. Enhancing the work of Vangelis for a project he has always admired.
2. The chance to work with an absolutely open palette of sounds
3. The opportunity to truly reinvent not only film music but MUSIC.
4. Ability to work with Denis Villeneuve, a man who gets scores nominated for the fact that they are innovative.

How did Hans fail here?

1. Wallfisch, a very fine composer is not a synth guy.

2. Hans does not give a shit anymore, seriously.

3. An imposed composer on a passion project rarely works

4. Johannson's work on Arrival is so beyond Zimmer's abilities that he had to go secure.

Max Potcats2018-02-22 15:40:42
Wrong.

1. Wallfish is a very fine composer, period. Hans is a synth guy.

2. If Hans wasn't concern about BR he wouldn't do it.

3. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. Hans choose to did it and agreed to involve Wallfish.

4. Maybe true, but it wasn't the thought of Villeneuve.

Looks like some of the OST titles are actual cue names. "Shesome" is most likely "Joi","You're Free To Mee Your Daughter" is probably "Tera's In the Rain", which is really Vangelis, "Crushing Joi" when Luv steps on the vile that Joi is stored in. You could figure out several. Any composers beyond HZ/BW attached?

Man, this score has really grown on me in the last few months, especially after seeing the film. While there is a lot of ambient sound design, there are themes and motifs which do propel the story and elevate the visuals. And just like Dunkirk, I almost have to praise it just for the experimental nature it takes. And I honestly still am not crazy about Dunkirk, but in context I can’t think of a more effective score.

Personally, I am glad to see Zimmer and other composers taking more risks with music nowadays. We have so many traditional scores to enjoy, it’s nice to hear something that can be rebellious and maybe unpleasant but different. That’s part of the reason why I love Trent Reznor’s collabs with Fincher. On its own, his music is pretty unique, and in context adds an interesting layer to the films it’s used in.

Also, I’m curious if the little snippets of “Peter and the Wolf” used in the Joi scenes were re-recordings done by Wallfisch or simply just inserts....

Meta reply Replies: 2 || 2018-01-02 02:26:19
Fyi...In case nobody else caught it (I didn't at first)

There's a longer, albeit cooler version of the track "Mesa" in the end credits....I don't know why they decided on the OST track, but whatever...


Mephariel2018-01-23 08:01:01
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that track just "Blade Runner" on the Album. There is lower pitch version of "Mesa" within that cue.


Ahmad2018-01-23 14:24:17
Mesa is a cue in the film and it has to match with what's happening in the scene.

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.

Ahmad reply Replies: 4 || 2017-12-28 15:30:29
Since the movie came out digitally, I'd like to take the chance and express how much I love the score. I've been listening to it since October 6, especially Sea Wall. That 4 note theme is incredible.
So many textures and sounds. Benjamin and Hans did a wonderful job. I gotta say, this release is one of the most satisfying releases. No big cues missing (thank goodness).


Monroe2017-12-28 16:39:51
I agree but it sounded very like Ghost in The Shell.


Olive2017-12-28 21:40:31
Both sounded very like the original Blade Runner.


Andy2017-12-28 22:25:46
They are similar but I feel ghost was more unique .The film did have issues but the score was very good and under appreciated

Temp track or Zimmer hands in the cue? Who know?


Olive2017-12-07 11:50:09
I think that as this project was clearly executed by Wallfisch, it would not be bad to know which cues had the contribution of Zimmer.


Olive2017-12-07 12:15:24
I saw the comment on the cell phone now and I'm going to rephrase it. I do not say credits here on the site, but in the booklet of the album.


AGreasMusic 2017-12-07 12:37:06
Ghost in The Shell was far superior musically


mpolonest123 2017-12-07 12:52:06
Wallfisch said in some of the interviews that Hans “helped” on Sea Wall cue. How much is beyond me but the opening action rhythms remind me of the Terraformer sound from “Arcade”.


Olive2017-12-07 14:07:52
Zimmer also said in an interview for the "Variety" that he composed "Mesa"


Olive2017-12-07 14:13:27
Vanity Fair: “We (he and Ben) got to the end, and I was sitting at my keyboard, and I just had an idea, just a fraction of an idea, but it got the conversation going.” Zimmer owned the same Yamaha CS-80 that Vangelis used to compose for the original 1982 movie, and played a melody that eventually became the “Mesa” track on the score.


CalendarMan2017-12-07 19:00:30
Sure Mesa must be from Zimmer, as it sounds almost the same as the Main Title from "The Fan".

JBSO992017-10-07 13:00:01
In the movie, the score is amazing and if you mix this wonderful soundscape with the beautiful imagery you have a very captivating and visually stunning movie (I absolutely loved it). And it's true that the album alone it's a bit simple but after you have watched the movie, the music makes a lot more sense and it's more enjoyable.
Anyway, I was expecting something similar to this, maybe a bit more thematic, but in the movie this works perfect, so for me it's okay.


Meta2017-10-07 15:35:53
I'm notorious for taking a soundtrack score and chopping it up to fit my personal playlist encompassing 30+ years of music....Right now I'm at 13 Gigs. It's a squeeze, but I gotta boil it down to the essentials.

Lets just say out of this entire album runtime I managed to boil Blade Runner 2049 down to 27 minutes of material; And this is only for RIGHT NOW, as I'm sure I'll be making beef jerky out of this score as I find myself listening to less and less tracks as time goes on...

And just an FYI yes, this is without having seen the movie. And while I understand the movie plays an important role with the soundtrack, I dont really design my life around the movie so much as I do the music itself, which to me I use to serve as a personal diary of sorts, so the album itself should be - I would imagine to most music lovers, anyway - a listening experience to be appreciated in and of itself, outside of the film it represents. Yes, I know one goes with the other. But I'm talking about ignoring the film itself and focusing on the emotions the artist interprets into sound. Let's just say I'm the kind of person who doesn't need music with lyrics telling me what or how to feel - I write my own lyrics to music.

For Blade Runner 2049, FOR ME, it's mostly meandering sound design followed by two or three simple themes that don't need an entire CD to represent. Now, I found this to be similar with Dunkirk, but not so much with IT - which I think Wallfisch put more effort into, because I got more out of IT than I did with Blade Runner 2049. I don't know what Zimmer is up to these days with his music, as it seems he's more into doing sound design type music while he lets his other workers do the harder stuff. I get it - He's getting old and probably doesn't want to overexert himself, or he's choosing projects that call for this kind of thing by the director, or maybe he's just not feeling very creative, which is fine. But still - FOR ME - I can't enjoy a score that's weak on themes and is mostly droning sound design.

Here's the tracks I boiled it all down to:

2049
Rain
Memory
Mesa
Someone Lived This
Thats Why We Believe
Sea Wall
Tears in the Rain
Blade Runner

- Tracks like Mesa and Blade Runner I cut WAY down because it just reprised the same music or just ended in droning sound design noise which mean nothing to me, plus I enjoyed the simple theme from Sea Wall, which seems to be the best theme I think, so the Blade Runner Track (end credits?) I cut down to the final 2 minutes, while Sea Wall I edited down to 7 minutes to cut out all the sound design fat.


Not much else to say, here, really, except:

I found Chappie to be a more inspired score, Vangelis put more effort into the original score than Zimmer did with this, which I find odd considering he says Vangelis was a major inspiration, and not that I'm trying to insult Zimmer and his work, but the the trailer music for Blade Runner 2049 I found more entertaining than the entire score as a whole.


Anyway, that's my take and it's time to move on to Justice League and see what Danny Elfman digs up, clashes with and transfers...OH BOY - that will be an interesting score, I think....


Hybrid Soldier2017-10-07 16:36:02
You realize most of this score is Ben ? HZ did what he could in between his tour shows. :)


Mortifer V.2017-10-07 23:19:33
I would also add 'Wallace' and 'Joi' to that list.


JBSO992017-10-08 11:54:46
Joi was a really good track and the scene where it appeared was breathtaking. I would also add Pilot.


Meta2017-10-08 15:37:28
@Hybrid

Wow, didn't know that and I'm actually surprised at that. I understood Zimmer considered it a personal mission, since he said Vangelis was like a sole inspiration for his music...Mind blown.


@Mortifier and JBS - I will give a relisten to Joi, Pilot and Wallace, but from what I heard of those at first glance, they did not stand out - without having seen the movie, of course. I was mostly focusing on the main themes to extract. Joi sounded pretty, but it felt superfluous, Wallace sounded motify with the guttural vocal chanting sounds, but I will check that one out again in context of the film. Pilot....um...Jesus that one is gonna be hard to figure out, as by itself it makes my teeth grate.

Thanks for the input!


Jorn, Norway2017-10-09 01:23:42
Mesa (08) makes my heart skip a beat. I stop breathing when it comes on screen. Its life itself.


JBSO992017-10-09 11:08:20
Meta I talk from the experience of listening the score within the film, because I hadn't listened to the album until I watched the movie. In the album itself the ones that stood out the most were 2049, Wallace, Mesa, Joi, Sea Wall, Tears in the Rain and Blade Runner, but then again, it's after listening to it in context.

Also Wallfisch appears first on the credits of the movie so he had a bigger role in the score than Zimmer.


Meta2017-10-09 14:25:55
@JBS

In context I can myself listening to tracks like Joi and maybe Wallace or Pilot, but then you would be linking those tracks to the movie memory, and not your own personal memory, which tends to get muddled once you see the movie and the context of the score falls into place. I tend to use the score for my own personal palette first before exposing myself to anything having to do with the source material it is based on.

Haven't seen the movie yet....

@Meta Yeah, well I most of the times do the opposite. Listen to it first within the movie to see how it works the music as was meant to be in the movie, and then I listen to the album itself to get my personal opinion on the score based on how it works in the movie (or TV show or whatever).
But there are times when I listen first to the album and I start creating the feelings around the movie even before seeing it.
Depends on the score but I always try to listen to it first within the movie.

I think we all know that if Hans had the time to do this himself, which was impossible as he was on tour, the score would have been much greater, more personal and "Zimmerish". I believe this is a project Zimmer would have loved to put as much of himself into as he possibly could, if he had sufficient time. He is an expert with many many years of experience with synthesizers and synthesizer programming, and he has a shitload of equipment from all eras, even the CS-80! I can think of no better to emulate Vangelis style than him. If anyone is to blame here, it is the director for not realizing this from the start and for not calling in Zimmer earlier in the process.

Also, Wallfisch was a strange choice, given that his background is with orchestral music, and not electronic. Of all composers at RCP, why choose the composer which has the least experience with synthesizers when the director was quite clear that he wanted an all electronic score?

Re: why Wallfisch, I feel like Hans kind of goes through these phases of a few years at a time where he has a new "toy" (maybe not the most respectful word :p ) he likes to play with before either he moves on himself, or else the toy in question starts forging their own solo career. From 2009-2013, it was primarily Lorne Balfe. 2013-2016, it was Junkie XL, Mazzaro and Kawczynski. This year it seems to be Wallfisch. A couple years from now, who knows?

Best one was Klaus Badelt! Zimmers most epic and beautiful scores were composed when Badelt was his partner.

generalizing all direct and indirects participations in Zimmer's career, I think this role is of Glennie Smith...

Second half of 1970-forever.

Ok, I know we already talk about this before but this is so unclear; this article saids that HZ & BW "maintaining the theme written by Johansson". So, anyone knows what this theme refears to? And there is no reference the Johansson in the credits...

(i can not put the link cause of spam but this is from the interview in Collider "Hans Zimmer Is Now Working on ‘Blade Runner 2049")


...2017-12-04 22:03:55
No that was an old report. None of Johansson's work remained.


Anonymous2017-12-05 03:16:49
thank god


Michaels2017-12-05 17:20:02
Why did they use the original themes ?Atleast they were memorable.obviously seems Zimmer did not spend time on this soundtrack


Michaels2017-12-05 17:32:36
Oooops!!! Why didn’t they use the original themes


Ahmad2017-12-05 17:39:11
What original themes? Johannsson's or Vangelis'?

If the answer is the former then you haven't heard any of Johannsson's material and if it's the latter, then I would say that's not how Villeneuve envisioned for the movie. I think they did a good job with the score. 2049 is so much darker than the original and the score fits so well and when they used Vengelis' material it was absolutely perfect and didn't feel forced at all.

Just my 2 cents!


Andrew2017-12-05 17:43:52
Vangeles’s themes . They are still so moving and memeorable


Gotham Rogue2017-12-05 20:37:57
I hate this score hasn't had more attention, it's really perfect for the film and when you listen to it in depth it has several recurring themes.


Ahmad2017-12-05 21:13:05
My favorite theme is what Ben calls the "Horse Theme" which appears at the end of "2049", "Someone Lived This" and the majority of "Sea Wall". It's gorgeous.
This score is so underrated.


hz2017-12-06 03:55:29
and also variation of horse/soul theme can be heard in sapper's tree, memory and that's why we believe

Nice!
What about the 2nd CD?


Ahmad2017-11-18 19:07:16
It's the same 24 tracks divided on two CDs. I'm truly hoping for a nice numbered digipak that separates the limited editions from the regular release otherwise it would be quite a crappy move from the record label.

Here is an interesting look at the sound design of BR2049 :

https://vimeo.com/237369956

Jump at 06:24, interesting to see Wallfisch using the CS80, the Synthesizer used by Vangelis on BR.

Enjoy.


Ahmad2017-11-04 21:56:51
And Hans working with Zebra :)
Apparently, they used Zebra for most of the score according to Benjamin.

The suite listed for all to listen to is not a suite. It's the second to last track. Also the end credits.

Which is a suite in itself and has most of the themes.

Well , not a big issus cause I've downloaded the tracks from the link they've sent me but clearly, they're not very serious.


Phil782017-10-20 22:00:48
Maybe there is a big surprise and Disc 2 is different from the actual release. If you look at the download files you see 01-01 to 01-24. I think Disc 2 must be named 02-01, 02-02...etc.


Geoffrey2017-10-21 23:57:43
Maybe. Clever deduction. Wait and see then ;)
