To everyone here! This is not the page of Hans Zimmer. It is only the site of some guys from France. Hans Zimmer can't hear you okay!!!!! It's just a fanpage nothing more, nothing less. Look at the label upper left! "almost".
@Michael : It's Hans Zimmer page -- Just ask him if you are not sure...
@antas it isn't. Sorry I don't believe that.How should I ask him now. Should I fly to Hollywood to ask him? Okay I ask him, in German language. So he can write back in german, too. Auch wenn das jetzt mit sicherer Wahrscheinlichkeit nicht an den wirklichen Hans Zimmer ankommt und mir irgend eine fremde Person zurück schreibt bin ich jetzt mal gespannt ob sich Herr Zimmer wirklich bei mir meldet;-) Ich glaube nicht. So also, was für ein Phantom wird sich jetzt als Hans Zimmer ausgeben?

Dear Mr. Zimmer my name is Mirko and I have a passion for composition. I compose music Fantasy (if you can call it), and I'd love to hear something of mine and unpublished. With my first project DREAM I received a promotion from Sony BMG. Youtube link below. Thank you for your attention !!!
I JUST SAW THE FILM "WOMAN IN GOLD" AND WAS DULY IMPRESSED BY THE MUSIC THAT WAS INCLUDED IN THE FILM. The credits included Hans Zimmer as being on board for the film. The music truly added much to my emotional enjoyment and understanding of the lives of the characters, although it was not all composed by Hans. The choices of music were meaningful to me.
Dear Hans! I think that music is an international language easy to understand, as one can listen to it with his heart, but not only ears. Your music makes me experience strong emotions time after time, it doesn't lose its beauty and power even if you've been listening to it for hundred times. This is real art and you are a true genius. Thank you for your music that strikes and astonishes, for the music that will never let go. Daria, Russia
Thank you so much for including our tribute to Hans Zimmer's 'Time' By Matt Baker & John Styles. It means a lot to us to have our work featured on your website and we hope everyone enjoys our creation. We are currently working hard on other works and hope to have some more tracks to upload soon. All the best for now, Matt & John :)
Hello Mr ZIMMER, Thank you for your music that I find meaningful contribution, an emotion to the film, you are a very great composer, I am fans of your music from longtemp and I listen to you very often .Please bring us such a feeling !! Yannick FRANCE.
Hi I'm a college student, and ever since I've seen the movie "Interstellar" my dream has changed to screen music composer. Although, I have never had chance to learn how to compose a song, but I have been trying my best to make good music. This below link will lead you guys to trailer for Interstellar with my self-composed music as sound track. Please feel free to check it and leave comment on it. Thank you guys!!!
I hope anyone like my Interstellar-version submitted 2014-12-18. It´s like a soft technoversion with some different sounds added. The organ from the soundtrack is so heavy. It is made in Ableton 9. Hope you like it. I am a huge fan of Mr Zimmer of course. More about me on sound cloud where you can hear the same track but with better sound, but of course it is not able to download for anybody.
Guys? Where do you make all this amazing stuff? Where do you get the instrument library from? Which program do you work with?
If anyone could help me get started to do some music. I would be in your dept forever. My biggest dream is to become a music composer, some people where I live, laugh at it but why can't I have dreams of my own.. I am only 17 and got many years left do become something, but if somone could answer what i should start with. Then I will practice and work with it every day.
Well, Hans works with a program called Cubase. It isn't cheap but it's worth your money. I currently use FL Studio and I'm pretty fine with it. The producer's edition only costs about 200$ or sth., so you would be able to afford it. I'm also looking forward to buy some software from EastWest. They have the best orchestral samples you can find.
Logic pro is good to.
Can you program cubase for a Mac?
Yes. If you have a Mac, it's not really difficult to find good music programs.
Just one more question. How do you start with a new song? Do you first start with the whole melody and complete it or? And after that, what do you do? Do you start layer different instruments? Is precussion important to start with early?
If somone can just make a quick short step by step list I would be grateful :)
Do whatever you want to do.
Hey there, look I'm currently in a composition class in college, you really work at it how you want. I would suggest if you want a free program: MuseScore, I think it's fantastic despite the MIDI sounds, and it's super simple to use. If you don't know how to do something you can just Google "MuseScore (question)", ex: "MuseScore, how to tie notes" and Google their manual will come up easily.
I suggest learning some basic musical terminology (if you don't already know) because it will make your life a whole lot easier.
In class some suggestions to start if you are unsure of what to do is to: A. Create a chord progression and build your melodies and harmonies off of that. B. Create a melody line and use the notes in it to determine what chords you want to use to harmonize with it.
Personally, I hear melody and harmonies in my head, so I put that down, but I get stumped a lot, so I bring in the music theory and general musical knowledge into play and that helps.
Mind you, I've only made 1 composition and am working on my second, but these things help.
Be sure you understand what your tempo is and try to write out the rhythm first if you are having a heard time getting it from your head to the staff. Then figure out what key you are in, you can use an instrument to uncover what notes they are and where your sharps and flats lie. Is it major? Is it natural, harmonic, melodic, or synthetic minor?
If you don't have an instrument at your disposal, it's easy to figure it out on MuseScore anyway, but you can also always use the Virtual Piano, just google it. ;)
Understanding the basics of piano is a must for composers, it is basically Music Theory laid out as an instrument for you. It also helps to sing your melody lines and note where you have to stop to breath, you those areas to add rests. Instruments that don't require breath support still need to pause at point and "breath," this adds a feeling of emotion and helps instrumentalists to make your melody lines sing, despite their instrument.
Those are only a grain of tips for you, but I hope it helps regardless! Keep dreaming, and dream big! As long as you put your heart into it, you'll go places.
For a new user who has not become welded to the hardware model interface, I recommend Tracktion. It is very inexpensive and now has Celemony integrated into it. EWQL orchestral samples are indeed wonderful. With their 450 MB 70-piece string section in my left hand and my Modular Moog in my right, I feel like the wrath of God. But don't overlook older samples. The Emulator X software has all the samples of the newer Proteus family. They may not sound so good naked but they sit well in mixes. The Planet Earth samples are still up there with RA as the most useful world music samples in my setup. Now if I could just play keyboards...
How to go about it? Peter Gabriel puts in many tracks, then takes them away one by one. Sort of like the sculptor freeing a statue from a block of marble. Try creating a drum track and then giving it to different instruments. That should get the juices flowing.
Try Garageband first. It's free and there are thousands of Soundfonts available also for free on the net. If you can't make something good in Garageband, forget it - there is no career for you in music. GB is powerful enough for a beginner to create excellent music. Punters are always shocked to find out what basic software Eno used to create his definative textures - you don't need to spend megabucks if you have talent.
