This mean the recording sessions?First Jedi Fallen Order, now Solo? I love this news! And I get the distinct feeling both releases are being used to determine interest in further Star Wars expanded score releases further down the line! Only real bummer is no CD to go on the shelf, but I'll take this any way it comes!He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Very curiousFantastic! Looking forward to that variation on Duel of the Fates! Now the only complete Powell collection I'm looking for is HTTYD 3.It's coming in November!!! This is so cool!!
Not referring you, superEXPANDED RELEASE SON!!!!!!!!!! LET'S GO!You mean that's GREAT news !Now thatís good news!I hear Harry Potter in tracks like "Playful Secrets" and "Labyrinths & Humps". <br><br>Yes i realize Elfman has had similar sounds to those tracks too, but i think Steve is at the very least trying to homage Harry Potter in a few sections. <br><br>And personally I think the main theme is the most Pirates-like, but that's why i said there's still Zimmer influence, (yes i know a few tracks sound like King Arthur too), but it's not overwhelming for the most part.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (The Deluxe Edition)<br><br>Coming soon to digital exclusive streaming: over 2 hours of original/unedited music from Solo: A Star Wars Story [as written for the film]<br><br>All cues + the original unedited version of the end credits suite!I never made the statement that only orchestral scores are good. I like the TF movies, Halo soundtracks, a lot of Hans Zimmer works including Interstellar. <br><br>However, i have little appreciation or interest in scores with little to no melody besides basic progressions. I need a heart to my score, not just music that works for the movie.Agree, solid work, but dosen't sound like John Williams, more like Danny Elfman.<br><br>Also, the main theme sounds like Pirates of the Caribbeanwhat an incredible album! it is getting very close to my personal favorite which is dunkirk. there is so much mastery in both. one thing that dunkirk has that this album doesn't have is a sense of repetition. both albums have some kind of non-finality. with dunkirk, i feel transported back to the beginning. with this one, i am not sure what comes next.<br><br>Hans and team probably have their share of anecdotes but here's another one.<br><br>i was playing this one day and my friend's daughter asked me if this was from... she hesitated and asked: the dark phoenix movie? i was astonished. she is 12 and probably not into movie scores. but she was able to pinpoint the right movie from a random part. that's something many aspire to. especially with the millions of super heroes movies out there!<br><br>i told her how impressed i was and went on unleashing my Hans Zimmer collection onto her haha :)Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>
I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',

Ok...thanks Adrian, even if I haven't understood when you say: "they would have infos the minute they are infos"

Thn I've a question for you: the music that we can hear in the SH's trailer, is that Hans Zimmer's music?

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-31 00:00:00
Don't excuse yourself, you're right... This site should go official, then they would have infos the minute they are infos :P

We do know the Sherlock Holmes score will be released by New Line Records (it was in a promotional ad of the label) but no other news at this point. I'm pretty sure it'll get a good release, it's a Hans Zimmer score and a Warner Bros. film!

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-31 00:00:00
Yes Adrian I know, but I think that the Webmasters should know much more about HZ new projects!
I've read on anther website that James Horner has released an interview about his new CD Avatar...great news! But we don't know anything about SH! Excuse me but I think this...

seriously? I guess i'll just have to sing those madeup lyrics I have...lol

hello,
I just want to thank you Mr Zimmer for your fabulous music..
Especially this extraordinary solo violin at the end of the movie.
I felt already a great emotion with the orchestration during the first movie da vinci code and there I found it again but with the violin by josha bell and this feeling was so strong that I had tears. Thank you for this beautiful work.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-22 00:00:00
In the the "Angels, Demons, & Men in Skirts" interview, Zimmer said that the lyrics for "160 BPM" are just made-up vocalizations to suit the needs of the music.

Not that I'm complaining; it's an awesome track on an awesome album...

160 BPM is like Red Bull. Rest is a bit dissapointing (how could he end 503 in that moment?!?) but very listenable.
I'm giving 4/5 and hoping that Inception and Sherlock will rock.

zimmer, YOU ROCK

really love your music. . . Angels&Demons was the best of the best. Hope you score the "Lost Symbol" movie, if they adapt the book to the screen.

but this score will always be your best

To best of my knowledge enrico, hans never attended any formal music education. he has learned everything through collaboration nut studying books.

"making expanded score"... what does it mean ? Ripping DVD tracks ?

If it is the case, please come on ! Wait for a proper SFX-free version, even if it's a longer wait ! And do not waste your time making a CD with horrible sound quality, including gun sounds, people screaming, tires screeching etc... It really isn't qualitative.

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2009-09-11 00:00:00
Ehi guys I've a question for you...I've red on Wikipedia that Hans Zimmer attended the Hurtwood House in UK...but please, read here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurtwood_House

Expecially this one:

"Hurtwood is renowned for having outstanding theatre and media departments, and at around £10,000 per term, is the most expensive school in the UK."

My question is: how did Hans to atend the most expansive school in England?!!! I've no idea!!! Was Hans rich when he was young? I don't know...
However great Hans!!!

ok, Daw, i already did the expanded score, i gave my best, i think its really good!!

but i think that, like 'the da vinci code', 'angels and demons' won't have the expanded score!!!

ELe reply Replies: 0 || 2009-09-10 00:00:00
Can't wait for expanded score. Although Arrival of Electors sound like Kingdom Of Heaven, its still cool track. Like many many others unreleased in Angels & Demons

luiszimmer: it's a really nice that you doing an expanded score!
The Arrival of teh Electors is a really really good track. It should be on the "Normal" score too! I love that song! ;)
