An interesting album arrangement given the 1994 album arranged the tracks into suites and it seems that's not happening here (and we all know how much hans loves his suites). Seems like it's going to hit every major note that the previous Legacy set does and then some.Does this mean that He Lives In You and Mbube are not new recordings, or at least not entirely new recordings?do you have Informations about a limited edition ?<br>(like BR2049, interstellar,...)it's a complete new recording1.      “Circle of Life”/“Nants’ Ingonyama” – Performed by Lindiwe Mkhize; African vocals performed by Lebo M; written and composed by Elton John and Tim Rice; “Nants’ Ingonyama” written by Lebohang Morake and Hans Zimmer; produced by Hans Zimmer; vocals produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>2.      “Life’s Not Fair” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>3.      “Rafiki’s Fireflies” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>4.      “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” – Performed by JD McCrary, Shahadi Wright Joseph and John Oliver; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>5.      “Elephant Graveyard” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>6.      “Be Prepared” (2019 Version) – Performed by Chiwetel Ejiofor; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Hans Zimmer and David Fleming<br><br>7.      “Stampede” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>8.      “Scar Takes the Throne” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>9.      “Hakuna Matata” – Performed by Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen, JD McCrary and Donald Glover; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>10.  “Simba is Alive!” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>11.  “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” – Performed by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen; written by Luigi Creatore, Hugo Peretti, George David Weiss and Solomon Linda; produced by Pharrell Williams<br><br>12.  “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” – Performed by Beyoncé, Donald Glover, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>13.  “Reflections of Mufasa” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>14.

The movie is like 30 minutes longer than the original so I don't think it can be the same all the way through.Hybrid did Hans do everything the same? or is there any difference in this score? Yes or no :DProbably not.Hybrid, I counted only 9 tracks from Zimmer. Is this the complete score or will there be a separate album with more music?Incredible work !, I admire you Hans Zimmer !.<br>Jaime Altozano (Youtuber music), he had a talk with you, and talked about interstellar music. I meet you more, thanks to his videos :)
The most colorful score by Ramin! I dig it!This is not a best soundtrack of Hans, but the theme "Gap" and the first two minutes for me are very good, no good....excellent.no :(Michael, that's my impression with some Zimmer scores: he composes a suite with the themes, hands the rest to his collaborators and supervise the work. But at the end the cue sheets will give us the information.Lorne did the great majority of the onscreen cues. Hans spent most of his time on this score writing the Moriarty Suite (which is longer than on album and has a few versions).
Is it possible to get full credit list for this score? I'll love to know which tracks Lorne worked in.Why soundtrack albums are made? Because most of the times a well edited album is a much better listening experience than the music as heard in the film, complete and chronological. At least  9 out of 10 cases I prefer to listen a well edited album. There are very few cases when a complete album is needed, in my opinion. The other thing is: I only have about 40-60 minutes patience for an album listen.<br>In Hans' case it's different sometimes because I really enjoy his suites and experiments.@iamtommie44<br><br>may i compare with mainstream music for a minute here. albums are important because putting one together is an art form on its own. the best albums are often not the ones with only the good tracks. but of course there are also those you buy because of track #2 or #3<br><br>in hiphop for example, mixtapes are a big thing. they seem like a freer album form. a way for artists to test new ideas and project directions. based on the response, those ideas would show up in albums. it's a nice way of testing things (or us lol) since our taste, especially in music, changes often. sometimes these artists want to see what works and what doesn't. i wouldn't mind buying experimental stuff from my favorite composers to be honest.<br><br>but anyways, dundirk is a very good album if you ask me. it's one of those that i can listen to in a loop and not get tired of. the tracks carry you along the journey. and by the time you reach the end of the last track, it loops right back into the first one...I have higher hopes for that than his normal work, he seems to do better work when not scoring big blockbuster action. (see The Mountain Between Us, one of his best scores)Such an incredible theme! Thank you Hans. When will it be available to buy?

@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.

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.


msml2014-09-28 10:40:58
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.
