Same situation like with TDK. Hans and James didn't knew how exactly scene will look like. The just knew that they need to write music for e. g chase scene. It's an interesting way of composing. Completely opposite to mickey-mousing.
Well Hans didn't get to see the images. He had to compose based on the script so Hans had his own 'dreamworld' (just like in the movie). Afterwards the music he wrote magically fitted with the images of the movie and even Hans was suprised about this.
They also did something very cool with a song of edith piaf (a famous french singer). Hans remixed it and put some score over and through it. This songs plays during the climax of the movie. I really wonder if this song is gonna be on the score though cause they will probably have to pay license fees to include this song.
