Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4
This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.
Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>
Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? Thanks

Am I the only one not to understand the success of this score? I listened it again and again but except "Old Souls" and "Time", I'm disappointed.
Even these two tracks are not extraordinary !

I think that it has nothing to do with the masterpieces The Thin Red Line, King Arthur, Gladiator, TDK, The Last Samurai ect

Zimson2015-04-04 22:08:42
You don't have to like it. Music is experienced subjectively, the next person is going to tell you that Dark Knight or King Arthur for example, aren't masterpieces.

My suggestion: Get yourself some good speakers and listen to "Mombasa" and "Waiting For A Train" again. If possible get the files in lossless quality. It does make a difference if you play them on studio quality speakers.

Frenchans2015-04-04 23:08:30
Zimson, I agree with you, it's subjective but I'm trying to find out if some people think as me about this score beacause I'm not see a lot of other. I just find it strange that the Inception's soundtrack is more known (and renowned) than Spirit or Black Rain for example.

Adam2015-04-05 00:45:29
listen to the complete score. It's much better!!!

Ds2015-04-05 01:03:42
Frenchans, I think it also has to do with the success of the movie. Inception is one of the best movies in the last few years, combining a great original screenplay with blockbuster action and awesome cast. Its music was great a lot of people know it more than they know Spirit or Black Rain. If King Arthur had met the success of Gladiator, people would know and love its music as much as they love Gladiator īs...

Frenchans2015-04-05 01:57:34
Ds I think you're right, it's linked with the success of the movie (amazing!) but I'm sorry to see that Inception is consistently mentioned in articles about Hans, by forgetting to mention Da Vinci Code, The Thin Red Line ect

But it's clear that I see again King Arthur ONLY to listen his wonderful soundtrack :)

Boldizar2015-04-05 15:26:47
Or you know... The score is just good

Ds2015-04-05 18:13:43
Boldizar, I think you're missing the point. Of course this score is good. Very good, even. But a lot of HZ score are also incredible, yet journalists and bloggers always mention Inception or Gladiator, rather than King Arthur, Broken Arrow, Spirit or Pearl Harbor. And that's not because Inception is better, it's only because Inception or Gladiator are much more famous and beloved by general audience.

Eleonora2015-04-05 21:11:51
same here frenchans, same thoughts about interstellar aswell. i just can't find the love for his newer scores. too much synth, too much "techno" rhythm in it, no melodies. just a huge huge huge hype.

i'm missing scores so much like thin red line, gladiator, pearl harbor, last samurai. and i always wonder why these are not so hyped.

sometimes i see how everyone screams about interstellar "woooooooooow the piano soloooo so amaaaaazing". i mean come on man, piano solo?! and i wonder if they ever heard anything else from zimmer and his past works.

Frenchans2015-04-05 23:36:35
Eleonora, I think that Hans wants to renew. Interstellar soundtrack is good but finally pretty empty; Like Chappie, Man of Steel, Inception (sorry :) )

The same musical chords which were used in The Last Samurai, Crimson Tide, POTC, King Arthur, (and more) were great !
Ok, that are alike, but it's so goood !

Eleonora2015-04-06 12:40:36
zimmer renew himself just like the whole music industry by producing only bad music. everyone wants to be "cool" by this mainstream techno thing out there. i'm always shaking my head when i see how zimmer is soooo proud to be with pharell together. to renew yourself is great, but to go that badly? to renew sth is like going a step forward, but he is going so many steps backwards. no beautiness, no epicness, no structure in his music nowadays. and the immense use of the fake orchestra is cheap. i'm sorry to say this, but it sounds totally like crap and like a cheap movie and not like something like a huge movie.

i hope he wokes up and start doing again his epic scores. because of them he became famous and not because of that techno shit. but glad to see that there are other users here aswell thinking like me.

Frenchans2015-04-06 13:14:52
I didn't think that Hans is influenced by the musical actual trend, indeed it's very possible too.

I always hope he releases a real epic and melodious score every time. Maybe Batman v Superman ? We'll see...

Gerry2015-04-06 14:21:52
I really like this score! Hans rules!

Passerby2015-11-02 11:10:15
Eleonora: I love most of Hans Zimmer's works, but about your last comment, I have to say...this soundtrack is in the techno style mainly because of the film. Techno music just suits it better. Also, I do not think Hans Zimmer became famous because of his more orchestral works, but because of how well his music fits with the films they go with. That's the main goal of a film composer.

One question: Is the "Don't Think About Elephants" cue (Thx to Hybrid btw) exactly the one used in the hallway fight scene? I'm trying to do a isolated score video.

Zimson2014-11-19 02:25:26
I figured it out by now.

badbu 2014-11-19 09:29:12
Destabilization ?!

Medigo2014-11-19 12:16:38
Yeah "Don't Think About Elephants" is from later in the movie; the final action piece in the snow fortress
(and even then its not complete)

"Destabilization" sounds like it and it the right track for the scene. (although thats only available on the sessions, and the movie has an edit to the track anyway)

Zimson2014-11-19 13:17:27
Yep, Destabilization is the cue. Though, there is still a major difference between 1:09 and 1:16. It seems to be an alternate version of the cue used in the movie.

GREAT new trailer for Interstellar!!! I wonder if Junkie did any of the music for the trailer -- there a melody that's awfully similar to a track from 300 I seem to hear. Perhaps not.

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-16 23:12:39
The trailer music is the track "Evy Reborn" from V For Vendetta by Dario Marianelli...

...2014-05-16 23:12:53
Junkie didn't compose squat for this trailer.
The music is by Dario Marianelli and comes from V for Vendetta

any news about the score?? can't wait :( 4 month....

Anonymous2014-07-15 23:17:56
Hans just finished it, I was told from a friend of his

Saurabh2014-07-16 00:48:12
When can we expect something from the Interstellar front? Perhaps some mockups/demos on the official site like the version of Dream is Collapsing on the Inception site? The wait is becoming unbearable.

badbu2014-07-16 08:46:44
merci ;)

Lambegue2014-07-16 10:24:28
With Nolan and Zimmer, I suppose we won't know really what to expect until a few days before the release of the movie at best.
It doesn't bother me : first, I like the waiting. And then, there are enough good scores by other composers this year to fill the void :)

bro2014-07-16 11:41:03
Hybrid could you perhaps just figure out of Lorne has anything to do with the work on Interstellar? It wouldn't be the same to have a pure nolan-zimmer film without him around.

Hybrid Soldier2014-07-16 13:18:54
Lorne wasn't supposed to work on it, Hans wanted to do it alone, "very personal"...

In the meantime, what happened ? I can't know for sure, there are so many parameters that can change plans... So who knows... We'll see !

NM2014-07-16 21:59:00
I'm excited to see what he comes up with. The Spiderman 2 score was very inventive, despite being for a horrible film, and the interview where he said he's throwing the 'endless string ostinatos' and 'big drums' in the bin bodes well. Space and gravity and all that amazing stuff is so exciting and interesting to me, coming from a theoretical physics background, so I'm looking forward to November.

Lambegue2014-07-16 22:59:01
Hybrid, correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't it be the first time that Zimmer works all alone on a score ?

bro2014-07-16 23:02:37
probably not the first time, but it would probably be the biggest film he has done completely solo for the last 10 years

antovolk2014-07-20 00:04:09
So Hans may have been involved in trailer 2 after all it he may have recorded an additional organ layer to the Evey Reborn track which is not present in the original!

Tried to extract it from the 5.1 audio of the trailer. Then listen to the trailer. Then listen to the original Evey Reborn again closely...

I'm hoping Interstellar's score will be great. The trailer music has gotten frequent listens from me. I really hope the final product is equally good. Don't know how likely that is, but it's worth hoping for.

Ds2014-05-08 19:49:52
Any word on Hans' involvement on the upcoming Interstellar trailer? :-) I read it is supposed to premiere in front of Godzilla next week.

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 19:51:41
Unfortunately Ds it won't feature any score... :( They keep it super secret so it'll just have trailer music or some other piece (which Hans told me was cool though lol)...

RealFfingMusic2014-05-08 20:45:50
As long as the score (and the film) is cool, we're cool with it.

Saurabh2014-05-08 21:02:58
If they're so secretive about the score then why attach a snippet of it to the teaser trailer in the first place? I'm fine with trailer music if it's in the vein of Mind Heist. And then they can pull out the big guns with the final trailer like MOS.

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 21:04:54
Well the first trailer was an old idea Hans did in early 2013...

Hans is working day (and mostly night :)) right now on the score...

Saurabh2014-05-09 00:01:51
I hope Hans keeps that idea in the final score then. It was quite ethereal, poignant and yet optimistic as it builds up to the organ crecendo when the rocket soars.

A quick thought crossed my mind, about the Oscars of next year. Among the potential nominations:

John Powell for How to train your dragon 2...
Hans Zimmer for his new collaboration with Nolan...
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross for their new collaboration with Fincher...

It's 2010 all over again!

Mr. Knowitall2014-03-19 14:46:28
"Hans Zimmer for his new collaboration with Nolan"

It's called Interstellar -_-

"Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for their new collaboration with Fincher"

Really? Are you sure it is called "Interstellar"? Wow. Didn't know that!

I didn't write it because I was making a parallel with the 2010 Oscar nominations, and I wanted the comparison to be obvious. It's not the title that matters, but the combination composer/director.

i know this is very, very premature but does hybrid or anyone know which "additional composers" are attached to interstellar? i know balfe did a lot on inception and i'm wondering how much an influence (if he's on the project) he'll have on interstellar's score.

Mike2013-12-29 23:31:00
Difficult to say. He did some heavy lifting on Inception, but he barely did anything original on The Dark Knight Rises; he just copied and pasted Hans' music onto the scenes. So it could be anywhere from doing a lot to barely doing anything.

Mike2013-12-01 23:20:33
According to the ever-reliable Wikipedia, Hans Zimmer had this to say regarding Interstellar:

ďWe had this sort of conversation aboutóyou know, nine years we spent in our Batman world. The textures, the music, and the sounds, and the thing we sort of created has sort of seeped into other peopleís movies a bit, so itís time to reinvent. The endless string of sonatas need to go by the wayside, the big drums are probably in the bin. So right now itís sort of the time where Iím pondering what else we can do.Ē

Edmund Meinerts2013-12-01 23:49:28
Sounds promising. But experience has taught me that Zimmer's words and his music rarely, if ever, match up...

Well, the concept was in the script of the film itself. I mean, I guess you could say Zimmer had a hand in it, sure, but a BRAAAAHM at the very end of the track doesn't make that track any less Lorne, really.

MacArthur2013-11-12 01:36:29
Ok Thanks Mike

Looks like even the Zimmer fans can't tell one score from another :P

Frisbee2013-10-30 11:24:29
Speaking of these two cues, it's remarkable how every incarnation of Thin Red Line themes have become hits (again!) in later HZ works. Those were some gold notes.

el barto2013-10-30 12:20:16
Yeah and yet, those people who are making these new cues to these hits, donīt know about these gold notes.

a shame, his older work was so much powerful and beautiful than what we`re getting today...

Hybrid Soldier2013-10-30 12:26:12
Everyone forgot the shameful rip/temp in Matchstick Men, but HZ managed to make everyone forget ! ;)

Hybrid I'm a little confused about this one people are saying that Balfe did a lot of this score could you list the ones he had a hand on on this score cause usually I refer to this one. So if you don't mind could you list what Composer did what and if there were any solo composers work on this one.

Mike2013-09-19 01:54:13
I'm not Hybrid (obviously), but I can help here. I will add that now that I know you've been judging it by the contents of this 50 minute release, I can understand why you insist Lorne Balfe only did a bit. I thought you were referring to the entire film score, of which Balfe did a considerable amount. But I'll start with the CD.

1. Half-Remembered Dream = Zimmer and Balfe (Balfe arranging Zimmer's "Time" theme with the BRAAAAHM sound)
2. We Built Our Own World - Zimmer and Balfe (again, Balfe arranging Zimmer)
3. Dream is Collapsing - Just Zimmer. This one is actually a theme suite.
4. Radical Notion - Zimmer and Balfe (Balfe arranging Zimmer)
5. Old Souls - Just Zimmer. Again, this is a suite, not a cue.
6. 528491 - Just Balfe. It's a version of his Robert Fisher theme, though it does use the BRAAAAHM at the very end.
7. Mombasa - Just Zimmer. This is a suite, however.
8. One Simple Idea - Just Lorne Balfe. It's half of Lorne's so-called "Kick It" suite.
9. Dream Within a Dream - Zimmer and Balfe (Balfe arranging Zimmer)
10. Waiting for a Train - Zimmer and Balfe (Balfe arranging Zimmer)
11. Paradox - Zimmer and Balfe (Starts off with Balfe's arrangement of Zimmer's Time theme, then goes into Balfe's Saito theme).
12. Time - Just Zimmer. This is a suite.

Now, judging by these crediting, I can legitimately see why you insist Lorne only did a bit of stuff. The album is indeed mostly Zimmer music. It's the whole score, as heard in the film, where Lorne had a lot of influence. But I'll have to give examples later.

MacArthur2013-09-19 06:18:06
Ok. Thank you very much Mike. and from the Complete score It does seem like Balfe did arrange some of that for the scene and write some themes for the people. But just 1 question would you say for the complete score that Zimmer did at least 80% of that score with Balfe arranging like the dark knight rises?. (Of course I know Zimmer did the whole TDKR score). and that this cd is 95% Zimmer (The Original Release)


Mike2013-09-19 15:23:24
I would say that Lorne Balfe was notably more involved with Inception than TDKR. With TDKR, he only "wrote" music for one cue that I recall, and even that one had Zimmer music in it at the same time. The rest was arranging Zimmer material, often times just copied and pasted exactly as Hans wrote it, so all in all Balfe didn't do much in there. TDKR is 100% Hans Zimmer to me.

With Inception it's tricky, because not only did Lorne essentially do all the scoring to picture (under Hans' directions and using Hans' material), but as I've said, he wrote a few of the recurring themes. And in addition, many cues (like Thief and a Forger, Strategy, and Mr. Charles) are only loosely based on Hans' themes, being mostly Lorne. It's impossible to say precisely in those cases. But overall I would say (it might surprise you) that Inception is about 65% Zimmer, 35% Balfe.

Mike2013-09-19 15:29:54
I would say the CD release is 85% Zimmer.

MacArthur2013-09-19 17:40:54
Thanks Mike! So that's why he got the nomination is because the CD release was mostly Zimmer the Complete score is Zimmer & Balfe But Balfe Under Zimmer's direction. I get you.

Thank you very much.

MacArthur2013-09-19 17:42:05
But would you say that The 35% Balfe Did was Supervised by Zimmer. Last Question by the way and Thank you.

Mike2013-09-19 23:33:14
Of course it was. Zimmer has to give the music a pass before it's used in "his" score. ;)

matthew reply Replies: 1 || 2013-08-03 23:07:31
got a question here...
the Oblivion blu-ray's got isolated score on it, at least that's what they say at
so if you have the inception blu-ray and you have a really great home theater system, then you know that the 5.1 DTS score on the bonus disc is sooo much louder then the movie. the mix is so much more powerful. the end credits song is Dream is Collapsing. so on paper, it's the same music, not an alternate version, both 5.1, both sfx free, no different version and this and that... nothing. same music, but still the end credits version is a fart compared to the bonus disc mix. it's simply not a question of volume level. with the bonus disc I can shake up the city around me.
so is it yust an isolated film mix score or is it the album version score mixed like the inception bonus stuff??
sounds fucking ridiculously stupid if you don't know what I'm talking about I know that, but it's completely different experience.
starwaves would be cool...

Ds2013-08-13 14:31:54
Matthew, i bought the blu-ray and as a bonus you can watch the whole movie with the score only (no dialogue, no sfx, only the music). It's not the album version.

There's an interesting alternate version of Time (neither Time itself nor "Welcome Home Mr Cobb") that the musicians are playing, at the end of one Inception video detailing the score.

cheesy2013-08-04 07:32:42
I don't think it's any different, it's just a raw recording session without the electronic elements mixed in.

If "ages ago" means one and a half months, two months tops, then yes, this track list was to be found on another site ages ago.
