@hybrid, the other day Collider reported that Nolan apparently directed a documentary short film that's releasing in August. Do you know if Zimmer did anything for these?This is out in France now. Is there anything known about a release date outside of it?The best video for now is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uk1fZTpfkyA<br><br>However this seems to be just an extract of the full performance. The theme we know starts at 6'08".So, a symphonic orchestra was performing at this year Tomorrowland. You can check it all over Youtube. They played a lot of music... including the piece written by Zimmer!<br><br>Now let's hope for a release :-)Nolan has made a new film. A documentary. I hope Hans scored it!
Any Richard Harvey sample for this score?Yeah, this one may hurt the head, but it sure pleases the ears... lolCheck some of his orchestral for Directors Cuts... The kind of stuff no one ever asks him to do... lolI just find it hard to believe that Powell had a hands-off approach to a cue like "Zen Ball Master". The first 3-4 minutes of that sound so much like authentic, fresh (fantastic!) Powell material that my brain is having a hard time reconciling the idea that it might just be Lorne Balfe. Certainly I've never heard anything else by Balfe that shows he has the capability of writing an orchestral action cue of such complexity and color.<br><br>This score hurts my head. It's worse than The Rock. :(Was it ever confirmed who did the score for the Comic-Con trailer? Was it Zimmer & Holkenborg, or some generic trailer composer?
Hybrid where is the physical cd release aye you said you would give information on it a couple weeks ago and you have not given jackshit, I have looked all over the Internet and found nothing of its existence. <br><br>So where is the physical release of said soundtrack?No, I agree with that one...Po Finds the Truth and Daddy Issues are probably the two tracks where Zimmer's musical voice bleeds through most clearly (as well as Inner Peace, which is just a rehash from KFP1, but the woodwinds in there make me think of The Last Samurai...).am I the only one who hears tons of zimmer all throughout daddy issues? especially with what the strings do around 2:44. sounds almost like the beckett theme haha.I think, judging from all that's been said, Jed's got it. There's no doubt more to it still, but this sounds like a reasonable breakdown. <br><br>Basically, I think we can all admit that "Music by Hans Zimmer & Lorne Balfe" may have made for a somewhat more apt cover credit, with a "Themes by Hans Zimmer and John Powell" sub-credit. lol. But in the end, this is just a really fantastic score, whoever made the biggest contributions, and everyone who wrote it deserves kudos for making it that way. ;)So to finally, finally put this topic to rest, the breakdown is...<br><br>1. Hans Zimmer and John Powell both did: main themes from first movie<br>2. Hans Zimmer did: Shen theme and Po Finds the Truth, as well as other contributions throughout, especially on cues with Lorne's name attached<br>3. John Powell did: some amount of contributions, probably early versions of the Paul Mounsey and Dominic Lewis cues (since those two worked with him on HTTYD), and the temp material from the first film like in Po Finds the Truth (new material in there by Zimmer, though)<br>4. Lorne Balfe did: several cues working with Zimmer, as well as "Stealth Mode," "Zen Ball Master," and "My Son is Alive"<br>5. Dominic Lewis and Paul Mounsey did arrangements for Powell<br><br>Sound right? If so, we should finally be able to calm down about whose "voice" is heard most here. It sounds like Hans and Lorne ended up doing the legwork, and Powell's sound carries over from his large contribution to the first movie.
I couldn't stop loving and listening to the Man of Steel complete score!Hello Mr.Zimmer, I really love your music. <br>I know you hear it all the time,it is so difficult to describe in words. Power, tears and all the time goose bumps. How music can wake up so many feelings is your magic. Thanks first for this.  <br>I'd like to hear you live in concert.  I see there is a concert in Poland,  are you personally there? I'll be the happiest man on earth to see you playing TIME on the piano.  <br>I'm from Germany,  are there plans to give concerts in Germany  with you? <br>I agree with you, "finding the rose" reminds me The Thin Red Line and I love that ! A return to his roots ?Hybrid, is it true that hans only worked on Suis-moi, Le Tour de France en Diligence and Suis-moi reprise? Or was this more of a collaborative effort?<br><br>Whoops, last post was me.

Is this the only work that actually conducted by Zimmer?


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

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.
