Hybrid, does anyone know that La La Land has finally released the two Socom 3 scores in a 2-cd set?<br><br>This should please the fans....*dateOkay i dont want piss people off but is there some of dart around which we can expect the "Perfect dock" soundtrack. I dont care its free or not. Just want the date of release.Hopefully Zimmer won't do them again.I've read that too. It's really crazy :p<br><br>I'll make sure never to erase those 2 scores from my computer :D
Steve posted an answer on FB, and I learned something today, even digital music is "limited" (crazy) :<br><br>"Iíve received a lot of questions on Facebook and Twitter asking why the TF4 soundtrack was removed from iTunes. Hereís the short-ish answer: The AFM (American Federation of Musicians) has rules regarding soundtrack releases and re-use fees. One option they offer is the option to produce and sell 14,999 units without any additional re-use fees. Once sales hit 15,000+ units, additional payments kick in. The number 15,000 was chosen I believe because a good selling soundtrack generally sells around 5k-10k units, so this option provides most union film productions the opportunity to release a soundtrack and sell up to 15k units without incurring any additional re-use costs.<br><br>Now because you guys are so awesome, the TF4 score hit 15,000 units really quickly. I honestly had no idea the score had been pulled down until fans started contacting me asking why the soundtrack had vanished from iTunes, only a couple months after the release of the film. I suspected the 15k limit was the reason, a little investigation proved that to be the case.<br>Some of you have asked another great question: why are TF1 and TF2 still available? For both of those scores, the people responsible for paying the additional re-use costs chose to go ahead and pay them. In other words they allowed sales to go beyond the 15k limit. Different people are in charge of TF3 and TF4, and they have chosen not to pay the additional costs, which is why neither TF3 or TF4 are available any longer. Itís strictly an economic decision. The additional re-use costs can and do add up to significant numbers, especially with scores like Transformers. These movies are huge with a ton of score, and I hire a lot of very talented musicians to perform, which results in even higher re-use costs if we go beyond the 15k limit.<br><br>I have had many many discussions about this topic, unfortunately it is out of my hands because I am not the one responsible for paying the re-use fees. For those interested in a physical TF4 CD I believe La La Land records has some unsigned copies left (sorry the signed ones are all gone). After these are gone, the TF4 score will no longer be available. The TF3 score is already gone. My hope is that we will figure out a way to re-release in the future, but for now this is the situation.<br><br>This topic is very close to my heart. Itís really hard to put so many months of work into a score and then hear from people all over the world that they would love to purchase your music but they cannot because itís not available. These are good people looking to buy this music, asking me what happened where did it go, and I donít have a good answer for them. Iím hoping with more discussion we can find better ways to address this issue. I do believe there are better ways, where everyone can benefit without fans being left out in the cold because they didnít buy the score fast enough.<br>thanks<br><br>Steve"Oh shit... it looks like a huge epic movie, the kind of which deserves a great, memorable and moving score. Ridley needs to re-team up with Hans!It's a nice score, good moments.<br><br>But it's not a GREAT score in any way... :/Have you heard all of it, Hybrid ? My main fear for this one is a lack of unity between Iglesias' (and Jusid's) cues and Gregson-Williams' ones, as I understood they didn't work together...The Interstellar score hit me in a way no other film music has in a long time. Thank you for that, and please find some way to put it out on vinyl. Something about it makes me think that's the perfect way to capture all the density in the songs. The organs would really come to life.
Sounds great. I hope the whole score has choir like this :)Yeah, kinda wait for that one. If John Powell doesn't confirm soon, he'll never do.they have said it on the product page for it<br><br>htt p://www.myplaydirect.com/interstellar -soundtrackthe illuminated star projection edition which is 28 tracks, 2+ hours of music is released December 28thAfter watching the movie again today, I really need the "Eureka" cue, actually the entire end is amazing, I just want the complete score lol But yes, the whole Eureka part with the piano is just a+mazing!!
Details & extract... :)How strange information on account release date<br>because today downloaded 23 tracks. And if the OST will be released only on December 18 that then posted a net additional 16 of November?I believe it's a suite not in the Soundtracks, but not sure. Might be in hte Ilminuated edition though, who knows.Awsome movie and score (y) btw. knows anybody what its used in end credits? :)Also the only score I am realy hyped for now is the hobbit. I haven't heard it yet (only samples) but this will probably end up as my score of the year.

Is this the only work that actually conducted by Zimmer?


al bundy2013-10-29 14:15:02

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 Channelís upcoming mini-series The Bible. Zimmer has previously written music for Burnettís 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.
