How black and white must your worldview be when not calling Lego Batman ONE OF THE GREATEST ANIMATION SCORES OF ALL TIME is called  "hatred". Believe it or not there is a bit of a spectrum between BEST EVER and WORST EVER. Although I imagine that's news to quite a lot of the people who frequent this site.Leave it to discuss the Lego score on the page reserved for it.<br><br>These comments about Balfe popping up everywhere are annoying.<br><br><br><br><br> <br>It's a bit annoying that every time I want to read some comments about the Wonder Woman soundtrack and click on a picture all I can read are praises for the Lego Batman score.<br><br>Please talk about Lego Batman in the Lego Batman section and keep this topic for Wonder Woman's music - which is not bad at all, by the way.Legobatman was fun score . I don't understand why some are mean about it . It's better than most Marvel scores and very memorable . Looking forward to his next animation filmNeither am I ? Lego Batman had cool music . Loved the songs also .
The emotional music in Lego Batman was some of the best writing was fantastic . Not sure why there is hatred for the sound track ? I only came across this web site because of Balfes music ....and some insights to the first POTC score. Seems he really did a lot for it. Interesting how no one really mentions Klaus Badelt beside lots of name dropping of other composers. The Lone Ranger bits are also very nice (another troubled production).Yeah I agree, sounds like Gollum's theme. Which I guess makes a weird kind of sense since both Gollum and Batman lead a double life xDFinal part of "Batman Suite" sounds like "The Lord of The Rings" lolReally again on that Lego Batman score ? Still don't know what everyone is raving about. The score of wonder woman. Liked it, but nothing memorable. For best the more emotional tracks stand out the best like Pain, Loss & Love
It's the same as One Day just re-scoredLego Batman is not even the best animated score this year let alone the second best all time.<br><br>The Lion King, Prince of Egypt, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, etc..<br><br><br><br>Dear Hans,<br><br>me and my wife visited the concert in Leipzig, Germany on May 24th 2017. We are big fans of Hans’ music and were in joyful anticipation to see him playing live some of our most favorite songs.<br><br>We had tickets for the best category right in front of the stage. By the way: we also visited John Williams and we have tickets for James Newton Howard as well.<br><br>But sadly this concert was a total disaster and we drove back home with nothing else than disappointment and anger. Compared to John Williams, where we were totally excited and told everybody about the great concert, we weren’t able to do this for the Hans Zimmer concert.<br><br>Let me explain in short, how we experienced this Hans’ concert.<br><br>1) Sound<br>The sound was horrible. The bass (especially sub-bass) was way to loud. Everything was booming, the sound was ‚muddy‘ and totally distorted. Vocals were hearable and understandable only if the band was playing very quitely.<br><br>At least, many people had to cover their ears because of the high loudness. And some people left the concert because of the bad sound. And just as a note: such high levels are harmful to health and if you like your fans to hear your music in the future, you shouldn’t kill their hearing ability!<br><br>Front of House was at the very end of the hall - so they didn’t hear how bad it was in front of the stage - and the most expensive seats.<br><br>I have to say this was no professional work. It seems like they just tried to kill any noise by turning up the volume to the max (like in the 80s) instead of optimizing sound and setup adjusted to the hall and the audience.<br><br>2) Lightshow and screen<br>The lightshow was a lowlight as well.<br><br>Almost the whole lightshow was based on strobe effects and flashing lights - no matter if the moving hads were flashing or the psychedelic moving images on the big screen were flickering and flashing. I was not able to watch this concert longer than a few seconds and then I had to close my eyes for a few seconds before I was able to watch again. Two hours of strobing and flickering lights, all the way from light to dark and back again in high frequencies was very exhausting. And it wasn’t only me. I saw a lot of people keeping their heads down and were watching the ground and not the stage.<br><br>Lucky me, I’m not an epileptic….<br><br>The big screen was used only for this irritating images and sometimes for pre-recorded! scenes, where some of the musicians were playing their instruments instead of showing the band or Hans’ playing live or if Hans’ is telling stories about the songs, his live or his friends and band colleagues.<br><br>At least this kind of lightshow and use of the big screen didn’t make it possible to see the artists faces. So it’s a bit like with the sound… You couldn’t hear them, but you couldn’t see them as well.<br><br><br>So why do you visit a concert? Right, to see the artist play and hear, what they play. Both wasn’t possible or a joy that day.<br><br>There are many clips on YouTube, where you can see and hear what we experienced. And no, the distorted sound is not caused by „bad mics“ of the smartphones...<br><br><br>I’m very sad to say this, but this was the worst concert of my live. I’m not able to tell anything good about this event - and everybody was expecting the total opposite. And to be honest - I wish I could get my money back, for the very first time in my live after visiting a concert. It was such a waste of time and money :(<br><br>Rick<br>Up, How to train your dragon and then Lego Batman are my top three. Defiantly best score of the year - AT THE MOMENT !!!Me too! Fun score. Surprised there are no more comments here.
Exactly - Lego batman could easily be for any D.C. Film not just for an animation . One of my favoritesGot to agree with you . Legit batman is in my top 5 for sure . It out a lot of super hero film soundtracks to shame . Excellent scoreWell.. I saw the movie, and I liked though not as much as the trilogy, but its very enjoyable in its own right. Capture much more of the firsts movies feeling that OST did. What I think I missed the most was Verbinski's weird sensibilities, grittiness and timming, but oh well as long as he doesn't want to return to this series, it will be something to miss for ever. <br><br>As for the Zanelli's score I loved it. I think is much better than Curse of the Black Pearl, which I think is the one we should compare with. Remember this new movie is, in theory the 1st one of a new part of the saga, so... compare it to AWE I think is very unfair... Not just the characters but the story itself must earn the epicness just as AWE did, thats how Zimmer desceibed it at the time. So this new one is the lowest end of Pirates epicness yet, or at least is the way I see it. If they keep doing more and Zenlli is still there, I'm sure it'll have to grow in scope and reach AWE highs and maybe even more.Agree with Edmund, (Shrek, Ice Age, Kung Fu Panda, Jungle Book...,) but each to his own... <br>What's the name of that celestial music when Volmer gives Hannah a new dress and says to her "You're a woman now" ?

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.

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.

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.
