Does anybody know which scene in the movie does the last one and half minutes of Chapter Doof track comes in? Right after the drop in the tempo. I am unable to make out.Dear Guest, stay tuned. You will be pleasantly surprised, actually :)@hybrid, the other day Collider reported that Nolan apparently directed a documentary short film that's releasing in August. Do you know if Zimmer did anything for these?This is out in France now. Is there anything known about a release date outside of it?The best video for now is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uk1fZTpfkyA<br><br>However this seems to be just an extract of the full performance. The theme we know starts at 6'08".
So, a symphonic orchestra was performing at this year Tomorrowland. You can check it all over Youtube. They played a lot of music... including the piece written by Zimmer!<br><br>Now let's hope for a release :-)Nolan has made a new film. A documentary. I hope Hans scored it!Any Richard Harvey sample for this score?Yeah, this one may hurt the head, but it sure pleases the ears... lolCheck some of his orchestral for Directors Cuts... The kind of stuff no one ever asks him to do... lol
I just find it hard to believe that Powell had a hands-off approach to a cue like "Zen Ball Master". The first 3-4 minutes of that sound so much like authentic, fresh (fantastic!) Powell material that my brain is having a hard time reconciling the idea that it might just be Lorne Balfe. Certainly I've never heard anything else by Balfe that shows he has the capability of writing an orchestral action cue of such complexity and color.<br><br>This score hurts my head. It's worse than The Rock. :(Was it ever confirmed who did the score for the Comic-Con trailer? Was it Zimmer & Holkenborg, or some generic trailer composer?Hybrid where is the physical cd release aye you said you would give information on it a couple weeks ago and you have not given jackshit, I have looked all over the Internet and found nothing of its existence. <br><br>So where is the physical release of said soundtrack?No, I agree with that one...Po Finds the Truth and Daddy Issues are probably the two tracks where Zimmer's musical voice bleeds through most clearly (as well as Inner Peace, which is just a rehash from KFP1, but the woodwinds in there make me think of The Last Samurai...).am I the only one who hears tons of zimmer all throughout daddy issues? especially with what the strings do around 2:44. sounds almost like the beckett theme haha.
I think, judging from all that's been said, Jed's got it. There's no doubt more to it still, but this sounds like a reasonable breakdown. <br><br>Basically, I think we can all admit that "Music by Hans Zimmer & Lorne Balfe" may have made for a somewhat more apt cover credit, with a "Themes by Hans Zimmer and John Powell" sub-credit. lol. But in the end, this is just a really fantastic score, whoever made the biggest contributions, and everyone who wrote it deserves kudos for making it that way. ;)So to finally, finally put this topic to rest, the breakdown is...<br><br>1. Hans Zimmer and John Powell both did: main themes from first movie<br>2. Hans Zimmer did: Shen theme and Po Finds the Truth, as well as other contributions throughout, especially on cues with Lorne's name attached<br>3. John Powell did: some amount of contributions, probably early versions of the Paul Mounsey and Dominic Lewis cues (since those two worked with him on HTTYD), and the temp material from the first film like in Po Finds the Truth (new material in there by Zimmer, though)<br>4. Lorne Balfe did: several cues working with Zimmer, as well as "Stealth Mode," "Zen Ball Master," and "My Son is Alive"<br>5. Dominic Lewis and Paul Mounsey did arrangements for Powell<br><br>Sound right? If so, we should finally be able to calm down about whose "voice" is heard most here. It sounds like Hans and Lorne ended up doing the legwork, and Powell's sound carries over from his large contribution to the first movie.I couldn't stop loving and listening to the Man of Steel complete score!Hello Mr.Zimmer, I really love your music. <br>I know you hear it all the time,it is so difficult to describe in words. Power, tears and all the time goose bumps. How music can wake up so many feelings is your magic. Thanks first for this.  <br>I'd like to hear you live in concert.  I see there is a concert in Poland,  are you personally there? I'll be the happiest man on earth to see you playing TIME on the piano.  <br>I'm from Germany,  are there plans to give concerts in Germany  with you? <br>I agree with you, "finding the rose" reminds me The Thin Red Line and I love that ! A return to his roots ?

Anyone else think that the part about 3 or 4 minutes into "The Ascent" resembles "Absurdity" from The Lone Ranger?

Hybrid Soldier2013-09-15 09:36:58
Ask Robert Townson from 20 years ago, he's the one who decided to release that version of the score.

HZ has nothing to do with it.


Actually I'm still trying to see the British version of that movie with HZ's score, no way I listen to it with Jankel's ! :P


Bioscope2013-09-15 17:19:34
In South Africa, there's a dvd distributer named NEXT VIDEO, if I remember correctly, that released the PAL version with Zimmer/ Glennie-Smith's version. Check out an online store named KALAHARI, you should get it there :)

The picture and sound is great...

MacArthur reply Replies: 2 || 2013-09-02 06:09:29
Is this the One on iTunes


MacArthur2013-09-02 06:10:31
Because I thought that Zimmer didn't do the music for K2. only the The Music Inspired by it


Anonymous2013-09-02 09:25:19
There are two scores - a European version (scored by Zimmer) and the original version (scored by Chaz Jankel).

I was dust cleaning my old cds, and I accidentally read the notes Hans wrote on the back of this album where he thanked Nick Glennie-Smith for writing and arranging some cues which have unfortunately been omitted from this record, so if someone was wondering the music on this cd is 100% Zimmer.

I wish the 12 tracks are leaked. Thanks for sharing just 007.


K22011-06-29 02:23:01
I think its the OST cut into tracks with possibly the end credits added from DVD.


T-Mann0362011-08-13 02:36:01
Is it possible if you could separate them by length of time on each of the 12 tracks?


Takehiro2011-08-13 05:26:33
1. (3:10)
2. (4:30)
3. (1:41)
4. (2:57)
5. (4:06)
6. (3:37)
7. (3:10)
8. (3:01)
9. (3:04)
10. (4:45)
11. (2:56)
12. (4:40)

There is no extra music on this, it is simply the OST cut into film order. Its a neat idea, but its not an expanded score by any means, not even slightly.


T-Mann0362011-08-13 07:26:03
Thanks Takehiro... I DEFINITELY needed that!

Theres an expanded score of this on sale in Europe, from a bootlegging group. Anyone got the tracklisting for it?

tim reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-16 00:00:00
having seen both versions of the movie, with both scores... Jankel may have been a replacement, but his score works better within the film; the slow character scenes and vastness of the surroundings come across better with the pink-floyd-esque music in the american release. Zimmers score just doesn't match the tone of the film itself; its too busy, sonically cluttered, and dare-I-say, small scale.

That being said I prefer the European cut of the film for the extra scenes, so c'est la vie. And Zimmer's score, I was surprised to find, works really well on the CD, if you're a fan of his sound.

It just doesn't work in K2.

Now wheres the Chaz Jankel CD?

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2007-12-23 00:00:00
Superb soundtrack.
Originally saw the movie in the UK with the Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Absolutely stunning.
Live in Canada now, and own the infinitely inferior North American edition of the movie with some guy called Chaz Jankel doing soundtrack duty. Completely senseless!
Hans rules!
Praying that someone with real taste and class will release the DVD with the Hans soundtrack over here!

1) The Ascent (27:40) (The longest cue ever written by Hans Zimmer)
2) The Descent (13:41)

An excellent progressive soundtrack that holds your ears bound to the speaker. The kind of soundtrack that you don't know what will you hear next. A must-hear soundtrack.

Need to buy actual soundtrack and movie from K2, not interpretations of that music.
