Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!
It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).
John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)Hubris: Choral Works by John Powell is now available to stream worldwide on all digital platforms! &#128526;<br><br>Also available to download in 192k/24bit high-resolution from johnpowellmusic .com<br>CDs on https ://bit.ly/2lcQ5Ig :) and coming soon to Amazon and other retailers!<br><br>Thank you, everyone, who was a part of this record!<br>Enjoy &#127926;&#127930;Mega cool :) Wann wird dieser Remix released? :)This would be really nice that as the release is only available for download, we had the choice to download it in a better quality than the CD itself. We have no material piece in the  hands, at least we would like to have such a contentment. I do have no action in Qobuz, but that should be a mandatory place for a download only music, for music lovers who like pure instrumental music. ;)<br>I'll be waiting for it !This album is absolutley wonderful!. I loved every second of it. I adore choirs in film music and an album like this is a very welcome treat!<br><br>Great job, Mr. Powell<br>10/10
Absolutely delightful score. Loved it.Where can we buy this "complete score"?What a wonderful soundtrack, I can not stop listening either. When I get home after work, Interstellar is the best soundtrack to listen to in the quiet of dawn. It's to get in touch with the Cosmos. Congratulations Hans Zimmer.from like.....4 years ago?I’m surprised nobody is talking about the expanded score that has leaked...!

Does anyone know where the "Floating Minds" track from the old promo is from? It doesn't seem to actually belong to The Ring. It's not a very good track, just a bunch of random piano and string chords really, but it's driving me nuts.

Bayhem reply Replies: 1 || 2017-07-19 12:32:26
Here's a tough one for you, guys: which Zimmer horror score do you prefer: this one or Hannibal? Speaking for myself, I honestly can't decide...I absolutely love The Ring, but Hannibal is equally as creepy, stylish and atmospheric. Would love to hear what you think.


badbu2017-08-14 20:36:49
This is the best horror score ever! :-)

it's a funny thing that I truly believe that this score is groundbreaking within Zimmer's work. soo strange but there are very scpecific musical ideas, sounds in this score that he still uses / discovering. after the 90s action sound, this was the born of a completely new library. obviusly it's not that simple I know that. it's not: let's draw a line in the sand, but something happened here.


Edmund Meinerts2015-10-30 13:32:26
I know I'm replying to this way too late, but I very much disagree. The Ring is very much an extension of Hannibal.

Is the End Credits cue credited by Zimmer only? or Tillman, Lohner and Zimmer?

The Well Pt. 1 is not unused. It is, in fact, the film vesion of the cue that plays just as Rachel is hit by the TV and falls down the well.

Here's the track listing for you to know which of these are film versions:

2. Disturbing (was replaced with sound effects from the videotape in the film)

4. Shelter Mountain Inn (I) (was replaced with the last section of track 11 in the film)

7. Rachel Makes a Copy (film version)
8. Rachel's Vision (film version)
9. "4 Days" (was replaced with "Rachel is Alone" in the film)
10. A Lighthouse/The Fly (film version)
11. Find the Lighthouse/Moesko Island/Anna Morgan (film version)
12. Aidan's Theme (film version)
13. Aidan Can't Sleep (film version can be found in the track Investigation from the promo album)
14. The Diary (film version)
15. Before You Die You See the Ring (film version uses pieces of the track "The Well" from the official album mixed in this version of the cue)
16. Daughter! (film version)
17. Horse Overboard (I) (film version has no drums. A small part of it can be heard in "This is Going to Hurt" from the official album)
18. Horse Overboard (II) (film version)
19. Morgan's Horse Farm (film version)
20. Revealing the Videotape (it's either the film version or unused)
21. Aidan's Drawing (film version)
22. A Dark Place (film version)
23. Lighthouse Music (film version)
24. The Suicide (film version)
25. Rachel is Remembering (film version)
26. Samara's Home/Behind the Wallpaper (film version)
27. Shelter Mountain Inn (II) (film version)
28. Under the Rug (film version)
29. The Well (I) (film version)
30. The Well (II) (film version)
31. The Well (III)/Home Sweet Home (film version)
32. Rachel and Aidan (film version has no piano layered over the cue)
33. She Never Sleeps (I) (I think it is the film version but I'm not sure)
34. She Never Sleeps (II) (film version)
35. The Videotape Goes to Hell (film version)
36. End Credits (film version)
37. Unused Cue #1 (title speaks for itself)
38. Unused Cue #2 (title speaks for itself)
39. Unused Cue #3 (title speaks for itself)

You're welcome to correct me if any of these notes are wrong.

Whats the difference between the 39 track version and this one? There is also a 2CD version.


Dakota2011-07-25 04:57:19
The Only difference is that the 4 remaining tracks are alternates. Take away those 4, and you have those remaining 39 racks


Poe2011-07-25 06:32:00
Not so with mine, track 39 on my edition is real long. And those 4 are from the original poor quality promo??

And the unused tracks in the beginning are 1, 2 and 5 !

bloo reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-02 00:00:00
Yes, its my version. I had the sessions, with no titles, and after viewed the movie, i did this tracklisting, putting 3 tracks unused at the end, adding the end credits, deleting the last track of this recording which already was on the regular release and fir the final, adding the alternate tracks from the first bootleg.
It's not indicate here, but i also add "film version" on few tracks, because a large part are not.

I have a 39 track version and it seems a bit different with the track orders.

bloo reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-02 00:00:00
Sure, it's different because you have the sessions (with 39 tracks). Maybe not but normally. And the tracks unused are in the beginning, but i don't remember which... maybe the 1, 5 and 7, but i'm not sure. And normally, again, the last track of your cd is "the well" on the regular release (cut on the beginning).

Track 37-39 are really unused music, never heard in the film.
Track 40-43 are from the very first promo album which was released years ago.
