Any news about Hans Next project?Does Hans compose music for releasing as his own records? I wish he'll make someI think BGM stands for any sort of background music, e.g. caffe music, game themes and, sometimes, film scores. But, IMO, "score" sounds way beter than "BGM"<br><br>p.s. Plz, do not my English, imma russian...One last topic I want to cover for this score, and that's the references to past films. I've found quite a few new ones that may be interesting.<br><br>"Today We Hunt" - Reference to "Bumblebee" at the end of the track.<br><br>"History of Transformers" - Reference to "Bumblebee", the end of "Are You Ladiesman 217?", and a sort of rebuilding of the Autobot theme using it's main notes.<br><br>"Two Moons" - Contains the main 2 notes of "Decepticons" repeated through the entire track, and of course elements of "We Were Gods Once".<br><br>"Prime Versus Bee" - Contains the drum beat featured in "Optimus vs Megatron"<br><br>"Your Voice" - Reference to "Optimus", the escalation of notes featured in scenes where Optimus is almost defeated ("Optimus vs Megatron" and the beginning of "I Claim Your Sun"), the 3 notes of "We Were Gods Once" when Optimus is about to be killed, and of course "Arrival to Earth/There Is No Plan".<br><br>"Battlefield" - Basic notes of the end of "You're A Soldier Now" and the Autobot theme in the 3 note horn section.<br><br>"Did You Forget Who I Am" - Autobot theme plays in the build-up before the "You're a Soldier Now" reprise. (Also maybe a hint of "Skorponok" at the end?)<br><br>The rest has already been pointed out on this website.Bring Him Home and Future King are great
The show is very good.we managed to watch the show in two days!the music by Gregson-Williams and Balfe is perfect. The score is some of the best TV music at the moment.going to defiantly buy the album now and see what it’s like2049 is by Ben, confirmed.generalizing all direct and indirects participations in Zimmer's career, I think this role is of Glennie Smith...<br><br>Second half of 1970-forever.@Ben: "Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either."<br><br>The original presentation, of 1994, is not very good to confess. They left out the score to emphasize the songs. However the latest launches "expanded score" and "Legacy Collection" (in my opinion) are among the best as Gladiator, the last Samurai,Prince of Egypt, House of Spirits, Rain Man,<br>Backdraft, regarding Henry,Beyond Ragoon, the Rock, King Arthur, Interstellar, Rush, At worlds End and the Dark Knight (The Collector's version). I like many themes by Hans, but when I come to head the organization factor of the albums most satisfactory these are some of the few that comes to mind.What's the involvement of EW in the Mermaid Suite? I always imagined it that way: Hans being responsible for the first part of the suite, the calmest, Geoff taking care of the piece that corresponds to the moment of the sirens attack and that Eric inserted the choir to finish the composition.
In the last 7 years or so the only Oscar that I think was deserved is Gravity by Steven price. By the way hybrid it was a tough comment for me. Thanks to all people here who think it was.<br>I totally agree that the music fit the movie perfectly Hans always did great job in this but as a standalone music for me and again (for me) the docking in interstellar do all the job on Dunkirk ( I mean suspense) so for me all Dunkirk soundtrack = docking in interstellar.<br>quote: "This score is nothing compared to interstellar or even to POTC 3."<br><br>How do you know or how do you judge? By musical complexity, number of themes, etc.? I think the Dunkirk score perfectly serves the movie - which is what it's supposed to do.<br><br>Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either - on its own. So it would kind of make sense for a score like Dunkirk to get him the award.<br><br>After all, when it comes to the academy, I don't think they look at a score in isolation - like we do as Zimmer fans - but rather how well it serves the film. If they love a film and let it win best picture and other categories, it's very likely they'll also give it "best original score".Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?
man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.

Thats exactly my point! Some scores get lost and do NOT exist in master form. Hence EVERYTHING does not exist :) Sometimes.

Recordings dont get lost just like that! Especially not new zimmers or grand projects like batman begins!

Damn, too bad some of them are terrible quality :(

Even some "soul searching" won't help ;)

I agree with you, Gav. There has to be a leak somewhere...

Gav reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-10 00:00:00
The complete score is out there and has been out there for a while. Just no one is sharing it :( Same with Crimson Tide.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-10 00:00:00
And what's your point stating that, Gav ?

Is it gonna fall from the sky ?


Actually you're not asking to good question, cause EVERYTHING exists anyway...

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-10 00:00:00
Most of the complete score leaks on Batman Bgins have SFX or dialog in it and they're bootlegs. I just have a 42 track expanded score which is some legit tracks and fan edited.

"And not EVERYTHING exists. I can list many scores that do not exist. "

If a score doesn't exist, then there's no score in the movie.
If there's music in a movie, there's a recording of this music somewhere (of course the recordings are lost sometimes - but it's rare). If there's a recording, there's a way to get it. Some scores are hard to get, some others don't.

Batman Begins complete score exists since 2005, since HZ & JNH wrote it.
The Dark Knight complete score exists since 2008, since HZ & JNH wrote it.
It's the same for all complete scores.

Yeah thats what usually happens, isnt it? If you have REAL expanded scores in your possession, I think the tracks should be posted here for archival purposes. Then we know :)

And not EVERYTHING exists. I can list many scores that do not exist.

There is sadly so much great music missing from the official release :(
fingers crossed for a more complete presentation for this gem in the future (I want the complete train fight cue damn it!)

Bruce reply Replies: 0 || 2010-12-11 00:00:00
The music from Begins is SO much better then TDK. It has the dramatic noice, it's so sad and tragic.
I so wish Hans will bring again this feeling to the third movie. TDK was really good, but just too much Rock and Punk. We need again the dramatic and sad feelings like in Begins. THAT is Batman.

And please please release the Batman Begins Complete Score! Come on, please!!!

The only cue which is interesting(and not released), is the track during Batman goes to his batcave after he has talked to "Katie Holmes".

i bet when the tenth anniversary for this movie comes around a complete score is surely to be leaked

So Wesson did tracks like Vespertilio, Artibeus, & Tadarida? Cool thanks for the help, btw! I wish I knew what Ramin did?

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-08-01 00:00:00
Mel Wesson did the "batflaps" and those other wierd sound effects that are sprinkled throughout - I'm not sure what Ramin Djwadi did.

Brad reply Replies: 0 || 2009-08-01 00:00:00
First off, I agree about the complete score. This movie has some really amazing cues that have been left out of the soundtrack, so a promo or complete score really neeeds to be released! Secondly, could anybody tell me what tracks Ramin Djawadi and/or Mel Wesson helped on? Thanks in advance!
