<br>That's it!! Thanks a lot, Edmund.<br><br>(I wasn't able to hear what he said when he introduced the track)<br><br>Hybrid, do you have any news regarding the release of the Wembley show recording? My fear is they finally realized it'd be wiser to release it AFTER the tour, so we'd have to wait until mid-June... so I really hope I'm wrong!Haha Edmund you make me really curious! Just managed to get my hand on A League of their own, I'll let you know what I think!<br><br>As for K2, I can't find it anywhere. It's not on iTunes (in Europe at least), it's not for download on amazon, nowhere at all. If you have a tip, please let me know :-)Even Zimmer kind of got his start off the back of Stanley Meyers, admittedly. It's how he nabbed all those little British drama movies in the late 80s like My Beautiful Launderette and The Fruit Machine. But yeah, Junkie XL is a totally different story.<br><br>Dude, A League of Their Own will blow your mind. It's like absolutely nothing else in Zimmer's career - okay, the dramatic material and themes sound like him, but the game music is this crazy, complex, energetic big-band jazz stuff which is just so much fun to listen to. Think The Incredibles on steroids. It's my favorite early Zimmer score!As I understand it, the filmmakers pushed hard to get a more contemporary sound to the score, and while Basil Poledouris is no slouch at that kind of thing (just listen to his Wind score, which is amazing), I guess they ultimately ended up "soft rejecting" what he wrote and got Zimmer to come in and stop the gaps. I've never seen the movie, but from what I've read, it uses portions of both scores; mostly Poledouris for the themes and Zimmer for the action music.<br><br>It certainly sounds like a weird situation!<br><br>(Oh, and by the way, the sequel score for White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf, an early-career effort by John Debney, is really good! Better than either the Poledouris or the Zimmer.)
I guess the MV formula worked really well for those guys... Powell, Mancina, HGW, what a dream team! But in Zimmer's case I find it even more impressive, because he started the whole thing himself, without this kind of studio to get him visibility (as far as I know, at least).<br><br>As for Junkie XL... for reasons you probably know, I think he's a totally different story (and with much less merits).<br><br>Next ones I've got to discover: K2 and A League of their own. As you probably guessed, I'm back in full fanboy-mode, I'm tired of waiting for new HZ releases and for the final concert, so I'm digging into the past! :-pUnless they played something different in Munich than in Berlin, it was "You're So Cool" from True Romance.I attended the concert in Munich. It was great! Can anyone tell me the name of the cheerful tune which started the second half of the concert? I don't think it was from any film, but was from Hans's school days.<br>Many Thanks!<br>So what is the story with this score. Was Hans brought in to save the day here? Did they leave Basils name because of his main theme?Agreed. "Serpent Riders" from the soundtrack album sounds like Soule all over the place btw. A lot of today's film scores can't live up to that if you ask me.<br>Guild Wars 2 remains his best solo effort imo. Haven't got around to playing skyrim much, though the main theme is goosebumps-worthy.
There's quite a few, really. I mean, David Arnold totally came out of nowhere in the mid-90s (and has since returned to nowhere, sadly). Danny Elfman's rise around the same time as Zimmer's was just as meteoric.<br><br>I'm not actually so sure about HGW, for that matter. He didn't get any really big assignments on his own until arguably Spy Game in 2001; he did a lot of collaborative work before then but usually played second fiddle to someone else (Rabin or Powell or Hans himself). Mark Mancina might be a better example for MV, coming out of pretty much nowhere to do a huge action movie like Speed. Or even Powell himself: Face/Off is a hell of a big movie to debut on!HGW climbed quite fast too ! ;)<br><br>Oh btw speaking of K2, I want to set something straight. HZ's score for that one was done in 1992. The film originally came out in 1991 with the first score and it was decided to rescore it for Europe (and not the other way around). So Hans did it with Nick, who only joined Media Ventures in 1992 (and his first work was on Toys).For me, the most immersive game score (not best, necessarily...but the one that never fails to IMMEDIATELY transport me into another world) is Skyrim by Jeremy Soule. Mists of Pandaria (on which Soule was one of the composers) gets serious points from me simply because parts of it sound a loooooot like Skyrim, including the "Valley of the Four Winds" track you mention!I can: Junkie XL. Make of that what you will... :|<br><br>This is an okay score but I don't find it to be as engaging or catchy or involving as other Zimmer scores from around the same period, like Days of Thunder or K2 (let alone Backdraft or the awesome A League of Their Own).Wow first time ? :)<br><br>There's some POTC 3 & Spirit lost in this !
I'm listening to that score for the first time, have to say I'm impressed. I didn't realize how quick Zimmer established himself in Hollywood (although I was just born, maybe it explains why).<br><br>Barely 3 years after "Rain Man" he was already doing big movie scores like this one or Backdraft the same year. As well as two scores for Ridley Scott, and one for his brother Tony. I can't think of a single composer who managed to climb at the top so quickly.Good evening,<br><br>My boyfriend and I visited the Concert in Munic at 26th april. And i have to say: We were speechless!! The only thing we were able to do was starring at the stage and listen to this awesome concert.<br>Respect tot he whole team, you guys are truly amazing!<br>I hope i have another chance to visit a conert again. <br><br>My boyfriend said: „I will never hear such an amazing concert again in my whole life“ – and i think he’s right. <br>There are so much feelings in this Music. We were really touched, exspecially „The Lion King“ touched us so much! Tears were running over our cheeks and there were goose bumps all over our bodies.<br><br>Keep going on like this, you Guys are truly amazing! It was such a wounderful evening!<br><br>Thank You so much<br>Corinna<br>They get better with every expansion. I can't think of a game with more immersive music and that's saying something.<br>I agree that MoP is the best yet, Jade Forest and Valley of the Four Winds have absolutely beautiful music.World of Warcraft has some of the best game music, period. Mists of Pandaria is particularly great, but they're all solid scores!Well, Macejko would disagree with you Edmardo. And stop using my brother's last name.

Above is my fan made Hans Zimmer inspired Star Wars trailer. I hope you all like it and I hope that somehow Hans gets a chance to listen. Even if it is a waste of time! This is in no way an ad, it's more embracing Hans Zimmers music and absorbing it into my own being. Thank you

Hans Zimmer + Star Wars

DOES
NOT
COMPUTE


Adam2014-11-26 23:01:28
Lol


ggctuk2014-11-26 23:12:46
Sorry, but Hans Zimmer won't be able to take on Star Wars any time soon (risking lynching by saying that, but as a big-time John Williams fan I must say it). That belongs to John Williams, and if he passes before the new trilogy is finished, I can see Michael Giacchino, James Horner, Alan Silvestri, maybe Howard Shore doing it. I don't think Zimmer's current style could work in Star Wars, especially given his heavy usage of synth instruments.


Edmund Meinerts2014-11-26 23:44:03
I don't think Howard Shore could pull off Star Wars any better than Hans could (the awkward bleedthrough from LotR into Revenge of the Sith attests to that).

Once the torch is passed from Williams, it has to be someone who can carry on with that fast, fun, brassy, insanely complicated, thematically-driven, ORCHESTRAL action style. The closest Shore has ever gotten to Williams' pace is "The Forest River" from Desolation of Smaug, otherwise I feel like he's too heavy and ponderous. Works great in Middle-earth, wouldn't work at all a long long time ago in a galaxy far away.

Of the others, Giacchino's the most obvious (and realistic) pick. Horner might work, but only if he goes back to his Krull/Willow/Wrath of Khan roots, which seems doubtful these days. Silvestri, yeah, I could see that working. To name some more obscure guys, Joel McNeely or Bruce Broughton would be fantastic. Even more obscure - Robert Folk or Frederic Talgorn. Holy crap, JOHN POWELL!! :O

There's no shortage of good options (even if some of them are pipe dreams) - but Zimmer would NOT be one of them.


Mike2014-11-27 00:25:00
Edmund, I'm sorry, I know you love John Powell, but I would not want him doing Star Wars (I wouldn't want James Horner doing it either: Michael Giacchino would be my definitive first pick, and if he were to absolutely refuse, I'd be happy to let Silvestri give it a shot. But I think as far as possible they should choose someone who's compositional style is, or is able to be, very close to Williams).


Zimson2014-11-27 03:28:03
If Alan Silvestri gets Star Wars, the movie died for me.
Btw ggctuk, what would you call The Lone Ranger? That movie wasn't "suitable for his current style" either.
Michael Giacchino sounds pretty good to me,though.


isildur2014-11-27 04:29:58
Well Hans + Star Wars is pretty much doubtful. I would really like to see Hans doing it giving something extraordinary and full of fun. He has done that kind of things in the past. It wouldn't surprise me if he does it again but I would be then like o_o.

But with J.J.Abrams at the helm I would think he would choose Giacchino. After all both Star Trek scores are kick-ass.


ggctuk2014-11-27 09:24:46
Never seen the Lone Ranger, never watched beyond a few minutes of what I would call cinematic tripe. Zimmer's current style is too synthetic for the highly-orchestrated and romanticised style that (most) Star Wars films go for. Don't think I'm denigrating Zimmer's work at all, but he would not be a good fit for Star Wars.

Abrams is only at the helm for Episode VII, o Giacchino isn't a dead cert but I'd say his style is closest. We'll see just how close it gets when we hear Jurassic World.


Solaris2014-11-27 21:41:12
Allow me to chime in. I don't even want to think about another Composer, regardless of who it is, to take over before the new Trilogy is finished. As far as I am concerned he will score all three Films and stay healthy and sharp way past the Age of 90.

Having said that, I actually won't mind other Composers for the Spinoff-Films, as long as their writing Style goes into generally the same direction as Williams': Orchestral, complex, thematic. Michael Giacchino sounds like an obvious Choice, as does Alexandre Desplat (given that one of the Spinoffs is directed by Gareth Edwards, that acually sounds like a possibility - just let Desplat work together with Conrad Pope again). John Powell could work too, same goes for Joel McNeely (whose "Shadows of the Empire" I regularily revisit) as well as some of the newer Guys like Abel Korzenowski.
My personal Choice, however, would be the Guys who did such a great Job on the recent SW-Games, like Mark Griskey, Kyle Newmaster and Gordy Haab.

Not that you're in the right place or are going to get a response or anything...but for Beyond: Two Souls you might want to ask Lorne Balfe instead of Zimmer. ;)

My son Fabien, French, who will be 18 years old December 5th of this year is a fan of you,Hans Zimmer. He knows many of your works and often makes reference to you.
He has just returned at the University of Musicology to become a music composer of film.
I shall like making him a surprise by offering him something of you ( inscription, ... ). Would it be possible and how to obtain it?
I thank you for it in advance.


Zimson2014-11-12 21:26:41
I'm afraid something like an autograph is really hard to obtain unless you don't meat him personally. I recommend you to make your son a special present by buying something like an exclusive release of one of his works.
For example the Pirates of the Caribbean Treasure Collection, available on amazon.

There will also be a special release of his most recent work Interstellar which is currently only available for pre-order in the US. You can check its status on the label's (Water Tower Music) website, but make sure your son doesn't already have that in mind ;)

You can also watch out for the news on Hans Zimmer's concert series which will hopefully continue next year.

Hope I helped you. :)

The Greatest Film Composers of All Time

Edmund Meinerts2014-10-23 11:45:44
That's a solid list (although I wish I could read the reasoning :p ). Danny Elfman and James Horner immediately stand out as "missing", but I'm not sure who I'd have them replace either. I guess I'm not that big a fan of Henry Mancini, but he's written so much iconic stuff it's hard to argue...


OKKU2014-10-24 13:10:18
Hi

Composers list is very difficult after first 5 ...Yes,disapprove first list.New list is here...James Horner and Henry Mancini,Two greatest. l think Horner's big main theme etc. is nothing.(May be Braveheart or Aliens) l think Elfman's only Batman and Fable themes is good,You must listen Mancini's Life force theme.Big one

Thanks
