so great to watch this new interview. it confirmed how i felt about wonder woman and widows. it is the right thing to do.<br><br>Hans's comment on losing his voice took me by surprise though. dunkirk touched on a few techniques i wanted to see explored more. i know other composers did it before. but i think dunkirk did a better job at putting those elements together... hopefully there is be a similar movie in the near future : )Steve is clearly spending time with his family. He had a second child just a few months ago. I think he will eventually be back on the Bay Train. <br><br>And Lorne is the right choice for a "replacement". He's been involved in one way or another with the Bay movies for more than 10 years now. He's certainly not a surprising choice and I'm looking forward to the score. It's a movie that takes place all over the world, so I have big expectations for the music.Hans says he worked so hard to get WW1 to Rupert, but didn't he also recommend that they try a female composer?Balfe has constantly been brought in on Transformers movies , so great to see him working with Bay properlyApparently we’re in the wrong country :( If I could afford it, I’d travel just to experience this.
Lorne is now listed on IMDB and Wiki as the composer of 'Six Underground'. Clearly Bay likes working with him. Good for Lorne.You're absolutely right. Play's over. Exit's that way. On your feet. Go!<br><br>Good knowing you.Steve is just trying to spend a little time with his family i think, he's not as busy as he used to be but i think it's cause he chooses that. Film Composing is an insanely time consuming job. I like Balfe a lot though.Huh. I like Jablosnky, but I really liked the 13 Hours score, so it's hard for me to complain.Maybe, Bay thinks Balfe is better than Jablonsky in terms of military tones and music.
Balfe is doing Michael Bays next movie !!! What’s happened with Jablonsky?Review widows: It's also scored by Hans Zimmer, which means it is immediately in the running for best score of the year...Blah Blah Blah...<br><br>Play's over, Shakespeare.Meta is right though...Hope it gets fixed, I love listening to the suites you add to scores here.
Nope.<br><br><br>Even if it wouldn't have helped, I guess ! lolArticle 13?Audio is down unfortunately.<br><br>Legal reasons... Nothing to do with Hans or any composer who have always been very supportive.<br><br>Maybe it'll return, maybe not...@Knight, it's not just you.Hybrid, all over the site there are no longer music extracts to listen to. For me at least, is it a universal thing?

This might be one of the FEW rare instances where the album is actually better than the complete score. While I get that the film needed shorter cues to coincide with the comedic timing/pacing it’s still frustrating to see suite ideas completely shortchanged. “Giddyup” in particular...
In film the score does work very well though.


Edmund Meinerts2018-08-12 14:13:49
Yeah it's weird how little overlap there is between the complete score and the album. I think over half of the music on the album didn't end up in the movie, at least not verbatim. I agree it makes for a much better listen, although in my version I've added a few of the better/more substantial cues from the complete score (like the cool Angels & Demons-style "Church Prophecy"/1m11-12v17, which I'm almost positive is an Atli Örvarsson contribution).


mpolonest1232018-08-12 20:08:05
I think a big part of it is that half of the cues written for the film are 30 seconds or less (or even 10 seconds in some cases). It’s almost impossible to have thematic development when you are constrained like that, so I do understand. Still, it’s hilarious hearing Zimmer give the Simpsons theme “Lion King” treatment in the main theme suite, shame that wasn’t used at all in film.

As far as the shorter cues go though, the Church Prophecy is pretty cool, and I personally love the Green Day organ cues. That was genius on whoever’s part decided to do it...

Great score. But its a pity the credited composer wrote almost none of it.

I know it's a tired debate, but I don't know how people here are so comfortable with the fact he takes full compositional credit for scores like this, Madagascars etc.

Scores like this you can't even earnestly say he wrote the themes like with Pirates. At least there the core of the material is coming from him. Here, the giddy up theme is Lorne, the villain theme and Homer suite are Jackman, the Lisa theme is Alti, etc. etc. Even the main theme arrangement isn't his.

I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him, that's not the problem. Those aren't his strengths, it's not a big deal. Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes. He's also good at organising his talent. The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me.


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-19 20:53:59
Well if you take the cue sheet every composer is credited for every cue on this score...

The name on the film credit is a contract.


I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...


Zimson2015-04-19 22:59:11
Exactly, ghostwriting is very common in the industry. At least his collaborators get credited here.

"Hans is good at what he's good at, simple melodies and interesting sound-scapes."

You're making it seem as if he was some sort of second rate composer, probably unintentionally, but let's not forget that he wrote Gladiator, Lion King and Prince of Egypt almost all on his own and those are considered film score classics. The first one even made it's way into many contemporary classical selections.

It's true that he took a step back in the 2000s focusing more on his role as a producer and this one is probably the prime example. However, his theme suites, especially for potc, are already a very good representation of the score's memorable parts and I'm sure the result wouldn't be very different if he did everything by himself.

And what exactly do mean by "his limitations"? You seem pretty new to Zimmer's music. He can do Powell as well if necessary as shown in Kung Fu Panda 2.


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-19 23:13:32
Don't think Hans can't do anything and needs people to do so... I think it was valid 25 years ago when Shirley Walker was orchestrating & arranging his scores...

But now, not really, he can do anything... He doesn't use add. composer because he HAS to, but because he wants to. Most of the times he starts the cues, gives direction and leads his guys where he wants them to go, and always has the final say...

I'll take an example, Rush... If you check the cuesheet, it's quite a mess, you basically have 0 cue with Hans alone... And yet he wrote most the themes to picture this time, with Ron Howard & Peter Morgan in the room. No theme suites... Then the guys just arranged slightly & added stuff... But a lot of the cues are him in the first place...


Edmund Meinerts2015-04-19 23:14:36
Except that was Powell himself doing Powell in KFP 2 (well, Powell and Palfe). ;)


NM2015-04-20 00:11:30
Palfe? haha... btw Edmund, do you still think "More Cannons" is Powell. I'm pretty sure I hear bits of it in Lorne's (excellent, btw) "Home" score!


Edmund Meinerts2015-04-20 00:35:44
"More Cannons" is Bowell/Palfe. What the weighting is, I don't know, though I'd be inclined to think something like 70-30. Bits of Home sounding like it isn't all that convincing an argument, since a composer doesn't need only to rip off his own repertoire ;) I'm more convinced by the Megamind similarity towards the end of that track.


isildur2015-04-20 22:59:38
"I know due to his limitations, he needs others to arrange the complex, intricate Powell-esque stuff for him"

LOL. How funny is this statement. Just can't stop laughing. Ignorance is bliss.


Leo2015-04-21 02:29:38
>I know composers who don't write their scores, and the co-composers don't get 1 cent of royalies...

Now you got me curious...


JamesT2015-04-21 04:43:13
@vced:
"The problem is all the material is labelled as *his*. It's gotten better recently, and I know in most scores he doesn't write as little as this one, but it still bugs me."

Interesting you impress upon this point with this score. Conversely, like Hybrid cites, a contract is a contract. Let us not pretend that Hans kicks and shoves his collaborators -- writers, arrangers, etc -- into a closet never to be mentioned or heard from again. Essentially everything he does is a collaboration, and credited so appropriately, minus an example or so by my observations.

I don't criticize Harry or Powell every time the liner notes from a score don't specifically praise Hans.

Who knows @ the dynamics, influence, inspiration, success of a given cue? Those that work on it. From the idea, to the last note.

Ya ok, 1m11-12 Chruch Prophecy definitely belongs with Angels & Demons. I've heard it in the trailer. And you can hear the themes in there.

Very interesting, didn't even notice that one. It sounds like it belongs in Angels & Demons
