Lorne has nothing to do with interstellarGITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere
I think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.
Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*

I said...It's better that Zimmer leaves these cartoon production...

John reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-05 00:00:00
When I heard that Zimmer was scoring this, at first I was dissapointed, but then I thought "Well, maybe the music will be a parody of Superman and maybe it will even contain self-parodies to the new Batman films!". But so far, from the clips, it seems that the score won't have any of these features. Such a shame...

@ Anonymus:

I think that Djawadi has done tha tracks where we can hear the noise of the scarecrow...

alexkurt reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-04 00:00:00
Sorry hybrid for being off topic, but we're also allowed to talk about Zimmer , even negatively.
You can say what you want, that Zimmer has never been alone writing his scores, I don't agree. back in the old days, he was helped by orchestrators and arrangers, yes, but he was still writing at least more than 70 % of his scores.
Nowadays, it is clear that he writes the themes, a few cues , -probably not even orchestrated just rough piano sketchs - and that's all.

And, he's probably doing all the business stuff, like meeting with directors, convincing producers that the music has to be like this and that, etc ...

That disappoints some people and I understand it.
Zimmer hasnt done a memorable score since ... lets say, Da Vinci Code.
I'm sure DA vinci code was one of the last scores he truely worked like in the old days....

Nuno reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-04 00:00:00
Yes, I agree with alexkurt. I still have hope in Hans though, and I believe that someday he will surprise us with a score that will be on the same level as his older stuff. Inception was really good in my opinion, and it was perfect for the movie.

However I do not blame him for giving a chance to younger composer's to do some work and let them be credited for it, I think that only shows that he is a supportive and encouraging person and that he is not an egocentric person thar feels the need to take all the credit.
In a way I think that he is doing for these MV composers what Stanley Myers did for him when he was starting out in the business.

But I would definetly like to hear more "solo" scores by Hans, like in the good old days. And I'm looking forward to hearing what he and Lorne Balfe have done for Megamind. Cheers.

i look forward to this movie and its score.
Hans Zimmer is one of the most populare composers in the film industry at the moment, and he keep making amazing soundtrack so hes gonna be around for a long time, and im happy about it.
Hans Zimmers score is so powerfull and amazing that it just takes my breath away.
A really amazing composer whit an incredeble carriere :)

if i had to complain about one thing whit Hans Zimmer it is that all of his albums doesnt contain a copmplete score from the movie.
and thats not a critic on him :)

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
I KNOW because I ASKED him ! ;)

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
That's great!!!

How did you contact him?!

So, is he working already on POTC? And has finished to eork on RANGO?

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Hans, you disappoint me. Lorne Balfe isnt such a good composer , just a library music composer. No style, nothing !!! Why are you working with him ??? Work alone ... !!! you're much better when you do so ...

Khun reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Hans probably tries to push Lorne Balfe to be famous. You know, after the guy has worked and gained some experience from him with his previous works. At least, another fresh composer will be risen in the future. (I hope Lorne will do good again this time)

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Only Powell and HGW are good composers that Hans raised. Maybe Mancina also (but not lately). Others will do B movies or TV shows and sometimes Hans will take them to do additional music so they their name will be on cover.

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Right...lots of composer in MV are bad, only a few are good...Onestly I've no idea about Balfe, but for examle I remembered the bad work that Djawadi did on Batman Begins, NOISE not music!!!

Very bad composer...

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Adrian, onestly I consider Ramin a very poor "composer". Clash has a copy of Zimmer previous works with the classic MV sound and was a success just because guys now want hearjust POWERFUL music with 100% volume up!!!

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
I think we should be careful about this discussion unless we want this message board to degenerate into flame wars and be closed down like Clash of the Titans was. I actually liked Clash, but appreciate that there are people who don't. If we can just adopt a mature attitude towards this kind of thing, then this whole site will be a better environment for appreciation and discussion.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
P.S. looking forward to this one!

I think Ramin djawadi is a very low qualified composer according to Hans Zimmer, Every one is.
But Hans is just has not the time to do all the movies , so he has replacements, such as ramin djawadi and all the rest. I bet no one can do the inception score better than done by Mr Zimmer.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
@Enrico,

What about Clash or Medal of Honor? Those were magnicificent jobs by him!
He worked with Badelt on Beat the Drum too, that was a success too.

@nameless 10/03
And B movies... Lorne did Crying with Laughter, but he made A music!

Hybrid Soldier, do you really say?!! It's fantastic!!

Do you think or you KNOW that is sure about POTC4?

However I think that Hans will be in SH2 too...

I hope that on CD there will be a division that explain what Zimmer did, and what Balfe did.

Hans Zimmer - theme (that's about 5%)
Lorne - the rest, 95%
