Hybrid, does Hans ever visit here and see all the comments that we leave? I'm just curious, I hope he knows how much of us love his work and could not live without it. I think he is the greatest composer ever.
Yet music is music! I mean, I get it because it's a legal issue and Hans wouldn't want to deal in anything like that. But, from a certain stand point, wouldn't composers want their work heard rather than bought? It can go in the same boat I guess.
yeah can you guys all stop talking about bootlegs ALL THE TIME it's really annoying. The album is for listening to and the rest of the music is in the film. Hans decides what goes on the album and what doesnt. For sure sometimes theres cues in the film that I wish were on the album (Maelstrom from at world's end comes to mind) but it's no big deal.
Hybrid, aside from all the bootleg stuff, does it make him feel good knowing all the support he has? Just curious. I'm trying to imagine myself in his shoes. One of the greatest composers ever, having a huge fanbase and people constantly longing for your music....it must be very supportive and comforting.
I just heard that, apparently, Hans is not going to be scoring the upcoming Superman film after all. He said that he'd never even met Zack Snyder, and that the death of Ronni Chasen meant that there's much less control of rumors. He also said that trying to follow in the footsteps of John Williams, especially on "one of his greatest themes" sounds like "a thankless task." It's a shame, but hopefully the composer who is ultimately chosen will be just as skilled as Hans is.
The full interview is at the Hollywood Reporter website.
@Hybrid Maybe you can answer me. I know for years that Zimmer visits here sometimes, but what is he thinking about this webpage? About us who wants bottlegs and expanded scores all the time? Did he never found this page "illegal" beacuse all the informations that can be found? I know that I alredy have my answers: THIS FANTASTIC WEBPAGE IS STILL ON THE AIR.
Miles: And didn`t Hans said something like "I have never in my life met Zack Snyder. I think I need to give him a ring"? :) Maybe he could take the music different direction - as he did with Batman. It looks like Nolan`s screenplay is going to be a bit different, too.
Have any of you all heard the sketch version of Mal's theme? It's freaking sweet!!! You have to induce into a Travelling Dream on the Inception iPhone app to hear it. It's definitely worth checking out! Sorry if this has been mentioned already.
But it's would be longer, though. On the back cover it states disc 1 is over 40 minutes, and so is disc 2. Round that off, and it's a little over 80 minutes of music. The standard release 61:49. That's roughly 20 additional minutes. Although the remix and trailer music add up to 11:20. Still, I'd like to get a hold of it and see for myself.
That Inception version is nothing special: just re-organized the score + the 2 bonus tracks + end credits (i suppose that that the suite is) and the Junkie XL remixes (i wish they just ignored that dude, because he CANT compose... he made music for a dutch film too, totally sucks ass... just like rye-'remix'-land). But the covers itself look good, nice pictures, especially the front.
There's a tracklist for the 'expanded' along with an album cover, back and inlay on the blog lostscores. It's all just a bunch of artwork, nothing for download. It's 18 tracks. Disc 1 is 11 tracks, while Disc 2 is 7. Check it out.
Hans you are my favorite composer you have a place in my heart i have an absolute ear and listen to your music make me very happy my dream will be to meet you someday Hans THE GREAT ! will you come to France ? Nice to see you for your best theme song in concert live ! in Marseille south of France you are the BEST !
I have the special edition Blu-Ray with DTS-HD 5.1 mix of the score. I have to tell you, IT IS a dream. It's yust something you have to hear with 5.1 to understand. The mix is mind-blowing. but yes it's not the complete album from water tower music. missing tracks: Half Remembered Dream / Waiting For A Train and of course the bonus tracks. and yes the sreen remains black during the tracks but I personally think it's perfect becouse it's MUSIC! A pure sonic experiance from Hans!
It is only selected tracks, not the entire thing. from the Blu-ray review on Bluray.com:
5.1 Inception Soundtrack (Disc 2, HD, 39 minutes): Hans Zimmer's pulse-pounding film score is presented in 5.1 surround sound via a captivating DTS-HD Master Audio mix. The only downside? Rather than fill the experience with concept art, production photos or film stills, the screen simply remains black during all ten tracks. Even the option to listen to the score with some sort of visual component would have been appreciated.
First, Merry Christmas everyone. Second, I don't remember. I've had it for several months now. I know that's it's against the site's policy to list links, but even if we were allowed to I don't remember. There are a bunch of fan made versions out there, 2 of them being mine and the other being the 2-disc I mentioned below. Let's discuss this over at TDK. The Standard, not the 2-disc special edition.
Whether or not there IS or ISN'T a complete release for TDK, it is indeed a very clever fan edit. Very very clever. I swear there is absolutely no SFX, and there is a cue for nearly every scene (except the only one I can think of is the scene where Lao is driving The Joker in the police car after Rachel is killed). There is also another "complete" out there which is a 2-disc therefore making the tracks longer. This one that I have I prefer. I guess I just got lucky when I found this one.
