Mac what you say is plain stupid... It's the notion of God & what it basically brought to mankind so far... I don't hate "God", there isn't any, I hate the creeps trying to put inside the head of everyone that there is one (or several, whatever) !<br><br>And if there was one, (s)he would so facepalm so much watching the state of this planet, that's for sure ! :DMacArthur, I don't hate God and I don't hate people for believing in God. What I do hate is when people use their God as an excuse to get in the way of reason, scientific advance, fairness, equality or just plain common sense. I'm not an atheist, incidentally. I guess you'd call me an agnostic - I believe what seems most realistic to me, and I'd put my trust in science, research and intellect over faith and dusty ancient texts 10 times over 10.<br><br>Stop it with the Second Law of Thermodynamics, please. It only applies to closed energy systems that don't receive a constant flow of energy from an external source. Living things aren't closed systems - they receive energy from the food they consume. Hell, the earth itself is an open system - it gets energy from the Sun, which, don't forget, is responsible for ALL LIFE - and hence the Second Law and entropy don't apply to it either. Also, stop saying "evolution is just a theory" - gravity is technically "just a theory" too, so have fun jumping off a high building!<br><br>And of course evolution isn't going to apply to a rock. Rocks aren't alive. Rocks don't procreate. Rocks don't develop traits that give them advantages over other rocks. Rocks don't CARE whether they have advantages over other rocks!<br><br>To everyone else reading this, look, I'm sorry for clogging the forum with unrelated stuff like this, guys. I know this is turning into a YouTube comments section. I just can't believe that it's 2014, where pretty much everyone has the fount of all human knowledge at their fingertips, and there's STILL debate over this. THAT'S the thing in this thread which has come closest to making me doubt evolution.And then comes my question to everyone...Coming from a guy whose religion and faith mean everything to him, and who wishes they would be equally important for everyone else, in the interest of what he believes to be the truth...<br><br>WHY are we having this long and drawn-out debate on a music site? Can't it be taken to other boards?x4. Yeah, the poem thing was pretty pointless. It wasn't even read in an engaging way.Zimson, yeah you're right, Ed's logic and facts don't work here because they are neither logical or factual.  Remember the word "theory" man, evolution is only a theory for a reason.  I like what MacArthur said...  You'd better indeed be right that there is no God, because I'd hate to be you when you find out there is one.
Here is my Question for Atheists. why do you hate God so much when be your belief system he doesn't exist. So what do you have to worry about. <br><br>Except for the fact that if you don't believe he exists. You'd better be right!Looked on &#163;40 (~$60) is very expensive. At least it's being released though.Ed, leave it. Logic and Facts don't work here.x3x2 :D
Tim,<br><br>The poem track is the worse thing I have ever heard30.01.2015 in Germany.SHUT UP! Just talk about the music. THE MUSIC. That is why we are all here. This is a small group, stop fighting about your beliefs and just enjoy what you have in common. I am so sick of seeing all of this bickering. It is ridiculous how childish its gets around here. Please, just stop.Ed, you have not said anything that disproves creation is possible nor have you said anything that proves evolution is true.  I can't believe you don't even understand what the Second Law of Thermodynamics is.  Matter and energy do not have to be "alive" to be observable, and they are indeed governed by entropy as life is.  what are you some kind of moron or something?  Scientists who have to keep laughably explaining away contradictory evidence to their "THEORY"  T H E O R Y (it's called a theory because it hasn't been proven true) with silliness that "billions" of years can change anything.  Heck even a rock can become a Boeing 747 if you wait long enough, right?  How absurd and how gullible you are.  Choosing NOT to believe in God does NOT mean He doesn't exist... it just means your are foolish.judging by what hans has said in interviews, day one (original demo) might be closer to "Years of Messages" than it is to the refined main theme we have now.
"Even evolutionary scientists have had to constantly change their beliefs to fit the facts."<br><br>You say that like it's a bad thing. That's what science IS. You accept what's currently known/believed until new or better information is discovered, and then you change how you look at things.<br><br>"How can life be constantly evolving to a higher state of conscience and intelligence when nothing else observable in the natural world is doing that?"<br><br>Because nothing else observable in the natural world, other than life, HAS conscience or intelligence. I can't believe I have to point that out.<br><br>"I would rather believe that God created us"<br><br>What you would rather believe has nothing to do with what is true.Where did it end up talking about Evolution here ? I fell asleep I stopped reading a while back... :O<br><br><br>I go back worshipping my composer... At least he's real and I have a proof of his music and it makes me think a lot more than the emptiness of all that ignorance ! :)<br><br>I'm sure he has fun scoring Jesus as we speak... :)Thanks TR (and Mark too), I was just about to respond with a similar comment but you beat me to it.  It is funny to watch the contortions that scientist go though to try and make up any silly thing they can as long as there is no chance of even remotely admitting that maybe there is indeed a higher power that created life.  To me it's simple, I would rather believe that God created us rather than some "big bang" just happened (that no one can explain where it came from or what caused it) which then inexplicably created all the stars, planets, galaxies and order and infinity of the universe and then somehow some amino acids magically appeared on Earth (that no one can explain where they came from) and combined together in some primordial soup (which cannot be explained where it came from) and magically created life (which has never been duplicated by science) then these simple lifeforms (over billions upon billions of years of course) somehow defied all known scientific principles and became man, Voila!  <br><br>It takes just as much faith, if not more so, to believe in that crap than it does to believe in God.  If I'm wrong, what have I lost?  If you non-believers are wrong, you have a lot to lose.  It's a pretty logical choice and I am not ashamed of God or my faith, so your ridicule of me doesn't bother me.For all guy´s outside the USA: <br>The Interstellar Illuminated Star Projection Edition ist avaiable for preorder on  Release 2nd Feb ´15<br><br>On also listed with tracklist, but now no release date (for a few days it was end of January). At Time no preorder available.Sorry but I have to agree with anonymous and Marks comments too.  I have for years studied the inconsistencies in the theory of evolution and there are holes in it large enough to drive a train through.  Even evolutionary scientists have had to constantly change their beliefs to fit the facts.  I think what anonymous was referring to about the Second Law of Thermodynamics is one of the largest holes in evolutionary theory.  That law state that all matter is in a constant state of decay and matter does not create itself of form itself into a higher state henceforth the entropy model.  How can life be constantly evolving to a higher state of conscience and intelligence when nothing else observable in the natural world is doing that?  The very few examples you provided of transitional skeletons have most been proven to be a hoax,  if there were evolution, then there should be as many transitional fossils in the layers of strata as there are regular known full species, but there isn't and that makes no sense.

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

there is so much energy in it ! were MR Zimmer its just to mellow for my taste

anyone know where you can buy it download it ?


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...

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.
