In the track "Smashing The Ring" (It's actually featured on this site), there is a Gregorian style chant around 1:22 - does anyone know if this is a pre-existing/traditional chant that they used or did Hans (or someone else) write it? I really like it.I wouldnt call 50 % <br>'most of the music'<br><br>also are you talking about the suit up above?<br><br>because thats clearly not the suite from the sessionsIf you make another tour you should come to Barcelona! You have so many fans herehi<br>le morceau: bourne 3 end crédit est magnifique<br>je ne me lasse pas de l'écouter, tous simplement excellentI dunno about this "Avengers Suite" demo...<br><br>sounds like it's just a mashup of the main themes, or a demo of the Civil War track or something...<br><br>Anyway, most of this music is already on the OST, so I dont see what the big deal is.
That's the thing - he doesn't have to reinvent himself every time, in my eyes. I wish he would sometimes just kick back and do what he does best.<br><br>Also, a lot of the "decent" stuff in the back half of Inferno is only so because it's straight reprises of DVC and A&D.And I'll add he simply hasn't been hired to write the "memorable" music recently. You can't accuse him of losing his touch for simply doing his job as he is asked.RE:Anonymous, he has done no such thing. Interstellar was only two years ago. And the second half of Inferno contains plenty of music which is AT LEAST decent, but it seems most people are tuning out before they get to the good stuff. Zimmer fans these days are so spoiled...twenty years ago the same score would have been considered mind-blowingly epic. How many times does the poor man have to reinvent himself before fans will be satisfied?Has this complete score actually been released somewhere? Or is this just the "official" tracklist?But I can think of plenty of tracks from AWE that do all of those things - "Maelstrom Part 1", "Trying to Get Lost", "Beckett's Death", most of the suites - and which Jackman was not involved with. I don't think it's fair to ascribe all the quality orchestral writing to him alone. Much of it, sure (he'll have a place in my heart for his involvement with "Marry Me" and by extension "Up is Down" forever, that piece is extremely special to me). But to say all of it does a disservice to the great work that EVERYBODY did on this score.

What do I have to do to download this marvel?!The interview confirms what we knew already, all the material that breaks out of standard Zimmer/RC patterns with fun, complex orchestrations, key and tempo variation, woodwinds and interesting counterpoint is classically trained Jackman.

Hey Hybrid. What is this music from? Is it a soundrack to a movie / TV show, or is it just something Lorne has been working on just for himself?What I always wanted to ask (especially now that I am currently in L.A.): Remote Control Studio doesn't offer visitor tours or something like that, right? Does anybody know?Haha didnt even know there was a difference! :-DI agree with you. It's a beautiful score, and they just decided not to release it.That's the publisher, not the label... ;)

Is this the only work that actually conducted by Zimmer?

al bundy2013-10-29 14:15:02
I doubt he actually conducted it

tristan2014-08-19 23:46:25
no hans zimmer has conducted and arranged many famous peices for movies and just regular music.

Does anyone know where you can get the sad piano music they played in the contender. If you watch the first episode of the contender series 1 on youtube you can hear it. (Its played right at the start where stallone says "life is a fight"?

Hans Zimmer is scoring the History Channel’s upcoming mini-series The Bible. Zimmer has previously written music for Burnett’s reality show The Contender.

Ds2012-12-31 17:24:56
Woooow 2013 will definitely be a great year for us! There's an extract of this series at /watch?feature=player_embedded&v=S42szZFGmZw#! , the music is pretty beautiful - don't know if it's from Zimmer or not...

Jimmer2012-12-31 17:55:02
Wow, that's awesome. Any new music from Zimmer is exciting and now getting a plethora of new music from the composer next year is really exciting.

@Hybrid: Do you know if the music from said documentary, The Bible, will be released officially on CD or something?

Macejko2012-12-31 18:27:23
The series itself looks shitty though. Cheap and poorly directed.

Jack2012-12-31 19:15:00
A preview of the score is available on Youtube, on the official channel of the series (The Nativity scene).

The Main Theme is not by Hans Zimmer.
Is been composed by Steve Jablonsky, Zimmer is just the score producer.
