It's not a demo... lol<br><br><br>Anyway, First Handshake, seriously ? It's just a music editing.<br><br>We have all we need from Interstellar. There's a pile a HZ scores that would deserve some extra stuff. I crossed IS off the list ! :PAlan, in fact we actually got "something straight from Zimmer", and it was the crappy No Time For Caution demo released on iTunes. Something coming straight from Hans doesn't necessarily mean it's better than other people's arrangement...I completely disagree, the score was fitting for the emotions per the scenes. Yes it has electronica but I think the decisions made fit perfectly!I made most of the fan edits you are talking about, and I still agree. I'd like to have the original, missing / lost tracks in my possession just as much as you guys would.I was gonna say the original Composer announced was Hans. does anybody ever pay attention to that
Ah, yes, Boldizar - you hit what was going to be my response to Ds right on the nose: the problem of them not being lossless. This score needs to sound as good as possible, as far as I'm concerned, and tracks being lossless is a must - so that is why I hold out some small, tiny hope for an official complete release. And for the fan edits, they are fine, and the folks who worked on them are fantastic, but I'd still like something straight from Zimmer.We won't see anything for years if ever.  Alan the best you can do is to get the FYC CD and merge the tracks not on the "official" releases.  Unfortunately it will never be lossless due to the FYC cd source.  The only missing cues are First Handshake and the Credits which are friend has on YouTube with the NTFC film mix and a fixed QC.<br><br>Ds, the ISP is missing quite a bit cue wise.Does anyone know when the score will be available?Hum I get your point but what cue are we missing here? I do not remember any missing piece of music, the release + the promotional FYC seemed quite exhaustive. The only problem is a damaged track (which has been repaired by fans) and an alternate track (the film mix has been recreated by fans). So in the specific case of Interstellar I don´t understand your complain...Just checking in to see if anyone's heard or read any more about anything coming out? I know it's effectively a over and done deal, because we've never received a complete Zimmer score, but I'm still hoping for one - or something with more music.<br><br>I wish Zimmer had more control over his music - or care, really. I guess as an artist, once you're done with something, it's time to move on, but he just really seems to be "eh, I'm passed that" in every interview he does about it - that or it's him saying "We'll see" or "It's up to Water Tower" or "Eh, it's out there somewhere. Who knows." Howard Shore does the same thing with the Hobbit complete scores - he just seems so "whatever" about the whole thing when anyone asks him, or that he has no clue how much there is - Shore even stated that the release we have now for "An Unexpected Journey" is pretty much complete - which, would be true, if it had the other 40 minutes worth of stuff that's not on it. Why do scorers seem so oblivious to what they've made? Or careless?<br><br>I can't tell if Zimmer just doesn't care, understand, or has no control over it, which upsets me. I'm not hating on him - I just wish I had a way to listen to that gorgeous score, even though I'm not entitled to it. Being a fan of film score sucks.

"The Greater Good" is very similar to "Safe Now".Thnx Xavi, same can be said of your piece of work!Saturday Teenage Kick still better.Best work by Junkie XL to date.Lol this reminds me of how the media often forgets that Hans is also scoring it! They go like "Junkie XL who's also scoring BvS" and sometimes they add zimmer's name as nr 2 lol.

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".


Antas, Webmaster2015-05-02 17:59:38
@Michael : It's Hans Zimmer page -- Just ask him if you are not sure...


Michael2015-05-02 18:53:40
@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?

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.

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.


Zimson2014-03-13 10:01:08
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.


MacArthur2014-03-13 16:32:55
Logic pro is good to.


MacArthur2014-03-13 16:49:25
Can you program cubase for a Mac?


Lambegue2014-03-13 17:56:24
Yes. If you have a Mac, it's not really difficult to find good music programs.


Johan2014-03-14 19:48:28
okey thanks!

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 :)


MacArthur2014-03-14 23:16:44
Do whatever you want to do.


Cristina2014-04-06 20:13:54
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.


Rarehipster2014-12-19 20:55:01
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.
