Gotta be honest here...while I know that the mantra on this site is "credits don't really matter," it's still nice for me to know that Hans did NOT just phone this in like the initial credit listing made me suggest. Not only did he end up doing the excellent finale of the film on his own (with more complex orchestration than usual for him!), but he also did a very impressive and genuinely bombastic John Powell impression. I had no idea he could even write something like "Hungry for Lunch"! He just doesn't really write like that, at least in 2016. Props, Hans. <br><br>This really is, I think, the last time I trust initial credits to say Zimmer didn't do anything. I was wrong on Inception, I was wrong here, and we were ALL wrong on Batman v Superman. Zimmer usually does more than we'd think.Ribbon Dance is 2 cues, the first part is Lorne. Then the fun actual Ribbon Dance is Hans & Nathan Wang.Martin Tillman. Click "See details"Hybrid, or anyone who knows, who does the solo cello work for this score?Only the very beginning, The rest is Hans (and Nathan, I guess). <br><br>For those like me who have an easier time conceptualizing *without* parenthetical credits on the tracks, it looks like the OST is this strictly speaking:<br><br>1. Oogway's Legacy - HZ<br>2. Hungry for Lunch - HZ<br>3. The Power of Chi - HZ, LB<br>4. The Arrival of Kai - HZ, PM<br>5. A New Father - HZ, PM<br>6. The Hall of Heroes - HZ, LB, PM<br>7. The Legend of Kai - HZ, PM<br>8. Mei Mei's Ribbon Dance - HZ, LB, NW<br>9. The Panda Village - HZ, LB<br>10. Jaded - HZ, LB, PM<br>11. How to Be a Panda - HZ, LB<br>12. Portrait of Mom - LB<br>13. Po Belongs - HZ, LB <br>14. Kai is Closer - HZ, LB, PM<br>15. Two Fathers - HZ, LB, PM<br>16. The Battle of Legends - HZ, LB<br>17. The Spirit Realm - HZ, LB, PM<br>18. The Dragon Warrior - HZ, LB<br>19. Passing the Torch - HZ<br>20. Father and Son - LB<br><br>Just easier to read that way IMO, even if credit is due to Powell and Imagine Dragons. :)
Hmm, interesting. Alright, Hybrid, do you know which of these cues are just HZ then (besides Hungry for Lunch, Passing the Torch, and Oogway's Legacy)?what did HZ do on Ribbon Dance? Isn't that the father / son theme?You can't really use that as Paul doesn't appear...Those aren't the only cues he did. He worked on a lot. <br><br>Crane and Mantis Jaded<br>HZ/JP<br>Hungry For Lunch<br>HZ/JP<br>Dramatic Entrance<br>HZ/LB<br>Dramatic Exit<br>HZ/LB<br>Every Master Has Vanished<br>HZ<br>Father And Son<br>LB<br>Hall Of Heroes<br>HZ/LB/JP <br>How To Be A Panda Pt 1<br>HZ/LB/JP<br>How To Be A Panda Pt 2<br>HZ/LB<br>Kai And Oogway Battle<br>HZ/JP<br>Kai Arrives<br>HZ<br>Kai Destroys The Palace<br>HZ/JP<br>Kai Is Closer/You Just Did<br>HZ/LB<br>Mei Mei's Ribbon Dance<br>HZ/NW<br>Oogway Passes The Torch<br>HZ/JP<br>Panda Homecoming<br>HZ/LB<br>Panda Kai Battle<br>HZ/LB/JP<br>Panda Training<br>HZ<br>Ping and Li - Two Fathers<br>HZ/LB<br>Portrait Of Mom<br>HZ/LB<br>Po's Destiny<br>HZ/JP <br>Potential<br>HZ/NW<br>Spirit Warrior - Po's Sacrifice<br>HZ/LB/JP <br>The Dragon Warrior <br>HZ/LB <br>The New Dad Part 1<br>HZ/JP<br>The New Dad Part 2<br>HZ/JP <br>The Power Of Chi<br>HZ/LB/JP <br>The Spirit Realm<br>HZ/JP<br>The Spirit Realm Continued<br>HZ/LB <br>The Training<br>HZ/LB <br>Trek To The Village Part 1<br>HZ/LB<br>Trek To The Village Part 2<br>HZ/LB <br><br>I probably missed a few. Soldier probably knows which ones =p.This is truly the last time I trust myself if I think Zimmer did next to nothing on a score. Granted, two extra cues isn't much, but I had completely written off those two as Balfe before now. Add in Batman v Superman where he did 80-90% of what we hear and I thoroughly mistrust my initial instincts with these scores anymore. :P
I have to say I would NEVER have guessed either of those to be Zimmer cues! Surprising indeed. There's such complicated Powellish orchestration! Zimmer just doesn't do that much anymore.So, Zimmer did Hungry for Lunch AND Passing the Torch? Well, well!Yeah I reajusted a few... ;)You changed the credits on a few cues. So Hungry For Lunch was Zimmer's Powell impression, not Balfe's? =p<br><br>Hybrid, well put!  :)
He's started his solo career what, 11/12 years ago. If he was, he wouldn't still be around.<br><br>He's a talented guy, works his ass off and delivers what he's asked to do.Ramin Djawadi is overratedGreat song!Absolutely true Ed ! lol<br><br>If it gets any close to GOW 2 I'll be happy.As long as it's better than Judgment. It would be hard not to be, in fairness.

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

Dom reply Replies: 4 || 2013-09-01 22:06:52

Thanks


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.
