I saw somebody say that Brian Tyler and Lucas Vidal are both credited! It was from some composer website. Is this true??So Hybrid, Lorne Balfe is the truth composer and Lucas Vidal is the real additional music? Is That? Or this is the truth and Lucas Vidal is just to pretend like oficial because of the "locations" where the movie was filmedLucas Vidal...<br><br>But after quite many years, you guys should know that I'm not very interested in "official" but more in "the truth"... ;) lolSo who is the official composer on this: Lucas Vidal or Lorne Balfe?Yay, knew it from the moment I heard RCP samples in the score and then saw Lorne's name in the credits (as technical assistant)! :-D
I prefer the movie version, hands down.<br>Love the organ and the powerful crescendo. The album version just does not do anything for me those damn strings everywhere. The addition of the strings make it sound like any other soundtrack. Nothing really special.<br><br>Please release the movie version also, preferably in FLAC format or something similar. And by having released both versions all fans are happy.I thought the composer was Lucas Vidal, Lorne having only written additional music... Can somebody explain?LOLWhat joke ?Every Day a new joke by Hybrid...<br><br>Lorne did Antonov Pt.4, that I know Evenstar
Yeah, tax refund, baby!Nope...Can anyone tell which track was composed by Balfe and which by Vidal?April 26, 2015 (Sunday)<br><br>Wow, I can't think of anyone the best of the best other <br>than Mr. Hans Zimmer! Luckily I stood next to him, if<br>recalled correctly, at a film showing for the Italian<br>Film Festival a few years ago. To experience Mr. Zimmer<br>and his music in so many films keeps getting better.<br>Music is "a universa language" and it makes all alright,<br>alright. Bravo, and wishes for a long, healthy life to<br>you (Mr Hans Zimmer).That would stink Hans is what I was looking forward to on that film, That and the fact that I love DC comics stuff
Hey Alan!<br><br>You are quite correct. The Score AND Effects have been toned down in those scenes. I was prepared to lower the volumen when that scenes came, but no need.<br>To be honest, the sound mix in the Blu-ray is better balanced.<br>It's like The Da Vinci Code Score, some parts were too loud ("over edited" I like to say).The writing of the score was very complicated, Greengrass asked for most of the tracks to be re-written several time. A lot of RCP composers worked on this one in order to "save" it, including Zimmer. It was an unpleasant experience for everybody... (plus the final score is according to me very dull, but that's a subjective statement). If you want to have more details, look on the score's page on this site :)Wangwei, you're wasting your time trying to connect with Hans Zimmer on this website.  This is just a fan site and no one here has any real connections with him.  This is NOT an official Hans Zimmer website.  Sorry.What Captain Phillips debacle are you referring too?"Big thanks for a Begins cue." <br><br>Was the cue "Training", and Hans was thanking Ramin for inspiring "A Dark Knight"?

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.
