It is important because the trailer music sets the pace for the movie. As a crappy pun, it is inception, it plants an idea and sets a tone for a film. This piece is crazy epic, I want it simply because it is such an exciting piece of music, written by zimmer (although I do agree it could be a remix, the initial piece used was written by zimmer).
This trailer completely sold me. The music was almost half the reason why. It conveyed chaos, dread, and emotion. Watching the trailer I completely stared without blinking, absorbing everything by being entranced by this intense music.
It showed me the movie without showing me the movie (I'm well aware that statement is confusing - I mean that it related key themes both visually and musically and really prepared me for what this film could be without ruining or spoiling key information from the film)
It is almost better than the track "time" but they are so different its hard to compare them, completely different in terms of what emotions they are trying to evoke.
I've been talking about this trailer track since december, reading every post about it, on any website. It's not Hempsey, he stood up and took credit for his track mind heist pretty quick. The first trailer was by a sencit music, but all they did was take the brooding horn zimmer uses and layered it with some ambient strings and sounds. The second trailer hit me in the face and said "here's the movie you've been waiting for - best movie ever - don't miss a single second. Love, Hans motha' f'in zimmer".
I've been determined to get it without any vocal or background audio included in the trailer. The last time I felt like this about a piece of music was with John Murphy's "in the house, in a heartbeat".
I've seriously considered "extracting" it from my local regal....but I'm going to need a good architect.
JustinCat-528491 is not the same or slightly different. In terms of progression I see what you mean ;)
The percussion are totally different (I listen to the moment just before the broum and this is almost the same percs in Mind heist). The mix is totally different too. But this is just my point of view.
Okay I agree, it "sounds like" 528491 but it's a remix at best...nothing more (I'm a DJ and a Zimmer fan for so long...).
I'm curious as to why it is so important to put a remix version of 528491, that is not in the movie, that was using in a trailer? This track simply has nothing to do with the Score...the ORIGINAL soundtrack or the movie itself (it's not in the movie).
It's the same progression that he has in the film, it's not an argument, it just is. In the track 528491 he also is using either a phase filter or some sort of frequency sweeper, which causes it to sound slightly different. The speed and sound of the effects are different between the two, but the progression is the same. If you can't hear it, I can't teach you to, but anyone with composition or writing experience, wether orchestral or any other style, will tell you that is the same piece of music.
@HZgui here is the trailer I am talking about vimeo.com/8464710, in the track 528491, at :58 seconds in you will hear the underlying string progression start, this grows louder and goes up an octave in the song all the way until the end. This progression is the driving force in the trailer that I linked. This is Hans Zimmer, how do I know? I called Regal Cinema on transit rd in Amherst NY, which is the closest IMAX and asked what they are playing before the IMAX viewing of Inception, they put me on hold for about 5 minutes, a gentleman named Mark came back on the line and said it was a promotional soundtrack given to them with IMAX reel. I asked if he could tell me if anyone was credited on the cd, he placed me on hold, came back another 3 minutes later and said the only person listed was Hans Zimmer on the front of the digipack case. The trailer music I linked in the first track they play off that cd, Ive seen the film 5 times on IMAX.
JustinCat- Well there are 3 videos. The teaser that includes the tagline "your mind is the scene of the crime" (1 minute). This is a rework from another composer. He remixes one of the track in TDK to do this one. Trailer one (1min24) the music from it is not from Zimmer. I'm sure. The only music that is composed from Zimmer is the "broum" at the end (528491-like). Trailer two (I can't remember the time...) This Zack Hempsey's work; Nothing from Zimmer.
If you watch ITW from Zimmer. He is talking about that. And he says himself "It's not what I'm doing on Inception, nothing that you can hear in the videos, this is not my job" (I sum it up but this is what he said...)
We do agree that we need more music from Inception HaHa :D ^^
Before I saw Inception on IMAX, the theater was playing the soundtrack, and it started with the track from the 2nd trailer, the song similar to 528491, but with crazy epic drums. It had no dialogue, so Im wondering if theaters were given a promotional soundtrack with extra tracks.....Anyone work for a regal cinema with an IMAX theater?
I love this soundtrack to death-- however, I'm almost positive that "Dream Is Collapsing" was almost twice as long, possibly even 3x as much, in the film itself. The film version seemed much more exciting to me, and I'm pretty disappointed that the longer version didn't make it to the soundtrack. I hope a longer cut is released at some point, but no matter what, a terrific soundtrack!!!
bou- I know what you're talking about, I find that the score is truly representative of what's in the movie (especially highlights). But why are we barkling like dogs? It's because we think that Zimmer's work isn't truly representative. He composed several hours of music (2h30 movie->2h20 music during the movie) and all we have is a poor 50 minutes soundtrack ya see it's not representative of what he's done for the movie (I heard about 3 hours of music...). At least, we wanted something like Gladiator (1h13 of music that are in the movie). I think there's 10 or 15 minutes missing in the actual soundtrack to be complete (which 2 or 3 tracks- or 2 tracks and a complete version of dream is collapsing and time) and if we get this 10-15 minutes everyone here will be happy and you first ;).
Everyone here knows the name of the missing tracks (projections and don't think about elephants), and we have the feeling that dream is collapsing and time are short (or remixed) version.
You asked me to contact HZ to get this clear, so I did !
He told me they do exist, and though it wasn't clear for him either (lol), there's a exclusive story with Verizon & iTunes (when it was for pre-order), according to him.
So I did tell him the current Verizon version has no bonus tracks, neither did the pre-order iTunes version, and showed him the WB comment about "only one digital version identical to the physical version"...
So HZ himself did send an email to the record company to clarify the situation and if possible make the tracks available by a way or another... :)
I have recorded my dreams in a journal for many years and what I found outstanding about the soundtrack for this movie was the feeling that so many of the soundscapes reminded me of many dreams from my childhood, teenage years and young adulthood.
Besides that Hans Zimmer keeps on delivering truly epic soundscapes and musical moments; with fascinating versatility and the most diverse reminiscences in his details...
unfortunately the official press announcement was wrong...and even warnerbros record has no idea about it. I don't think they will make another CD but because it is too short. I mean all the cues are there, except projections and don't think about elphants, they'll not waste time making another CD. We have to pray and hope for a digital download on the web. I will watch the movie again (3 times haha) see if something's missing.
we are begging for two "miserable" but so F***ing EPIC tracks that may increase the overall album and change everything (we are talking about approx 10 minutes of music)
