Ahoy schedueled the show from 20.00-22.50, but it took until about 23.15 including the Inception after piece... Depends a bit on how quick the audience takes their seats. The Dutchies seemed a bit slow as some came running in as the first piece had already been played. Hans even commented on their laziness ;)A Little disappointed no cd release? -,-Does anyone know how long the concert is?The movie was temptracked with mad max cues it seems. there are some motifs from the main theme in some of the samplesWell first of all know that Martin Tillman officially signed to be the Cello of POTC 5... So I doubt we should worry... The POTC sound shall return ! ;)
I confirm for the Animated theme... Some of is in Half Shell ! lolTHAT SOUNDS AMAZING!! lets bring Steve for Avengers Infinity War!One of the themes reminds me of Guile's Theme of the Street Fighter II game.Thanks @HybridSoldier<br>Well, it can't be helped anyway, but Pirates without Hans won't be Pirates for me. <br><br>I really hope Geoff Zanelli will continue to use a lot of the "old" themes, because that IS Pirates. Pirates 3 is my most favorite score of Hans ever. I hated the fourth film, but the music was good nevertheless. And I have a feeling about Pirates 5 being a much better film than the last, so I really hoped for a new epic Hans Zimmer score coming along with it...<br><br>I am really sad, and hope Hans would consider returning for a possible 6th film. For now it is clear to me that I won't be watching Pirates 5 in cinema, like this it is enough for me to wait for the home release.<br><br>Anyway, thanks for your fast reply @HybridSoldier :)Sounds adventurous alright, can't wait for turtle power, it's that new theme from the clips and it's so cool.
Based on what I hear from the samples, I like it. Different from the first one (and it seems he didn't use Brian Tyler's themes), Jablonsky's style. AND, I hear the 80's anime opening theme in half shell (maybe I'm crazy...), I can't wait!it will be released on June 3rd, soundtrack samples already available on AmazonNot only am I perfectly fine with Hans not returning for 5, I wish he hadn't been dragged back for On Stranger Tides either. At World's End ties up that series of scores so phenomenally well, there really was no more need for him to continue (or for more films to be made, but that's a debate for another time...).<br><br>If you ask me, you couldn't find a more appropriate steward of the franchise than Geoff Zanelli, who is the only other person than Hans to have worked on all four scores so far. I'm really excited to see what he does. I have no doubt we'll hear plenty of familiar music, though hopefully in fresher renditions than the straight rehashing of On Stranger Tides.<br><br>Also, is it even confirmed that Powell is legitimately returning to work on Bourne? Or is it going to be a Buckley score using Powell's themes and Powell's only credited for the latter? And what happened to the no-RC-no-Powell-no-Greengrass-no-way thing?For once my fears not become real with a movie score.<br><br>Not. Warcraft Score is not Pacific Rim additional music.<br><br>Not. Warcraft Score is not Game of Thrones bastard.<br><br>Yes. Warcraft Score is just Warcraft Score, <br>And what a original score that's Ramin Djawadi has wrote!<br><br>I love how the Main Theme is implemented in some parts of the tracks along the album.<br>The music for the Orcs (A.K.A. the Horde) is a brilliant mix of beautiful and darkness. And I consider that this music is the central part of the album.<br>That's good, ok, but this make that the music for the human heroes (Allianz of Azeroth) is really really scanty and not developed at all.<br><br>Not the case with Medivh theme, OMG what a magnificent theme!<br>Listen how is mixed with the Horde music is just great.<br><br>My biggest surprise is the few action-tracks that this soundtrack includes. Coming from a movie that talks about WAR is surprising the slow pacing in a lot of tracks and in general is my feeling with the Album experience.<br>Nothing bad I must say, only strange .<br><br>Now 8.5 out 10 is my score for this amazing work. Probably if this music work well in the film I will turn up to 9 or more, Who knows?<br><br>And yes, of course....listening this you can breathe Real Epic.Does he returning to Titanfall 2?
Because he spent many years on this saga and it was time to move on, and the production of the fourth was horrendous... lolWell he has done the job since Pirates 3, the 4th was unexpected so it's more a patchwork than a very strong score. So it's not a surprise if Hans is not back on the 5th, it's better in that way I think.I agree also with Ds, I need to see it all again! It was fucking awesome@HybridSoldier<br>Do you know WHY Hans is not returning for Pirates 5?? I'd really like to hear his reasons... <br>Because he did an amazing job with the other scores and I'm not really looking forward to seeing a Pirates movie without a true Hans Zimmer score... And I'm sure lots of people think the same way.<br><br>So, if you could tell a bit about his reasons, I'd really appreciate it :) Thanks!Thanks for clearing that up. It's a shame Badelt alone got top credit.

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

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.
