Lorne has nothing to do with interstellarGITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere
I think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.
Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*

I love Zimmers work. I listen to the Pirates of the Caribbean scores religiously.

What is the difference between the limited edition and special edition soundtrack for the film, and will we see a complete score in the future?

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-21 00:00:00
You know, these clips act as spoilers for me. So I guess I'll abstain till I get the actual soundtrack in my hands and then spend a day relishing it! :D

I believe the Joker's one-note motif is that rising note heard in "Why So Serious"?

This is a very promising score. Thanks for that url. The samples on exlibris.ch are amazing! The most promising cues are Agent Of Chaos, Aggressive Expansion, and I Am The Batman. Agent Of Chaos uses the cue at the end of the End Credits Suite from the first Batman movie. Go to about 3 and 15 seconds left in the piece and that is the cue I'm talking about. Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard are going to deliver on this one. And the theme, or rather, the one note motif for The Joker will send chills up your spine! Amazing music; I can't wait for this one!

Why So Serious (probably the one note motif) sounds a lot like the Hannibal score. Wich is a good thing. The 15th of July is still so far away!

One note motif???

WTF is one note motif?

The smallest musical motif consists of two notes!

A Sentient Being reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-20 00:00:00
Thanks for the link!

Totally amazing! Zimmer and Newton-Howard are using the old themes, and yet The Dark Knight will be loaded with bunch of new ones!

Outstanding!

The one note motif is heard in the first track, which i think is also the bank heist scene...not sure though. I dont know if the one note thing is a perfect motif for him, but i guess depending on how Zimmer layers it it'll take on a life of its own...

i heard the samples though and DID hear alot of rehash themes from the previous soundtrack...Supposedly they wrote over 2 hours of music....Last thing I wanna hear is the same cues from the previous soundtrack on here...

Hybrid, you're not objective! :D (for thunderbirds)
I like the work who has been done on Batman Begins but this isn't the best that a duo like Zimmer and Newton Howard can do!
Listening the samples (and it's an extract maybe not representative of the ensemble), i don't find a real surprise, a big theme (hum.. maybe in the last track??).
For me, it's a copy-paste from the prequel with two three years of maturity of the themes. And it's over! But I hope I miss!

Ok i think everyone needs to just chill out and wait to hear the score for The Dark Knight before making any comments. I'm sure it will be great and i can't wait for it, but i'm not going to critique it on 30second clips.. C'mon guys and girls, your all starting to make this site annoying to visit! Everyone needs to just enjoy with their ears and let go a bit! People here are starting to leave comments as stupid as the ones you see on filmtracks.com. Please people... learn to just enjoy music, love or hate it, but don't spend your spare time talking about the technical points. It takes the fun out of listening to music. Peace to you all! :)

I don't know what a one-motif is because like one of the previous posters said "the smallest musical motif consists of two notes." It will be interesting to see how Mr. Zimmer uses this "one note" in different ways. I can't wait until July 15th.

I cant wait for this. Zimmer and Howard are two of the very best.

This should not serve as an advertising place!

And besides, the site is not special at all!

So, keep out!

Because Zimmer does fantastic Album everytime! ^_^

Hum.. I'm a huge fan of hans and no.. hans doesn't always good scores. Example, Thunderbirds. :)
And more, Batman Begins, even if it's an efficient and a powerful score, the result isn't the best that you can wait of hans zimmer and james newton howard!
I'm decepteid by the approach taken in "Dark Knight". It seems a dark score, very dark, too dark? Batman isn't a hero?? Bad new!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-18 00:00:00
Thunderbirds isn't a Zimmer score, he just wrote the main themes...


And... I love Thunderbirds... Junior Mission is an amazing track... :D

"The point is to make more money :)"

Won't they make more money if they include only four bonus tracks on each release so finally combining we get a nearly complete score? :D
