Hybrid, was PM in charge of the Kai cues? That seems to be where he pops up.I like his Nolan scores, but I have gotten tired of his "Nolan approach" (i.e., everything is a short motif that repeats with added layers and volume), cause it's embodied his modus operandi for the last decade almost. Sure, he used that approach before Nolan, but after Nolan, he not only went to town with it and scored most stuff that way, but even espoused it as being preferable to his older stuff like Gladiator. <br><br>So yeah, back to what I said...it's nice that he's broken out of his Nolanisms just a bit. :P It's really refreshing. I hope he continues to do so.im not the biggest fan of his scores for the nolan movies. Inception worked for me in the movie, but the sound of this score and the theme itself is not something i like to hear on cd. Interstellar is even worse and failed for me for the most part in the movie. the music is overpowering, too simplistic and just added nothing in many important scenes like the goodbye of father and daughter or the big docking scene. in my opinion the movie is not well scored.<br><br>Kung Fu Panda 3 in comparison is....the music enhanced the movie and every scene is perfectly scored. emotion and excitement when it needed but never too much. really great score, especially for a third installment of a franchise. does not happen often...All true. His solo cues in here, and even the "tuneful" sections of the Batman theme from Batman v Superman, are a refreshing return to "broader" writing that it feels like he's almost abandoned since working with Chris Nolan. I honestly wondered whether he'd ever write more "traditional" stuff again, and those two scores tell me he still has it in him. :)i love this score so much. my favourite rcp score in a very long time and its really nice to see, that also hans has solo tracks, which have great melodies and an exciting orchestration. the music is adventurous, funny, emotional, exciting and with a fantastic chinese touch. there is not one bad cue. every track has at least one great moment. i know, hans likes to create new things, but i prefer him when he sticks with the traditional style of score. he shows that he can still do it.
Gotta be honest here...while I know that the mantra on this site is "credits don't really matter," it's still nice for me to know that Hans did NOT just phone this in like the initial credit listing made me suggest. Not only did he end up doing the excellent finale of the film on his own (with more complex orchestration than usual for him!), but he also did a very impressive and genuinely bombastic John Powell impression. I had no idea he could even write something like "Hungry for Lunch"! He just doesn't really write like that, at least in 2016. Props, Hans. <br><br>This really is, I think, the last time I trust initial credits to say Zimmer didn't do anything.

I have to say I would NEVER have guessed either of those to be Zimmer cues! Surprising indeed. There's such complicated Powellish orchestration! Zimmer just doesn't do that much anymore.So, Zimmer did Hungry for Lunch AND Passing the Torch? Well, well!Yeah I reajusted a few... ;)You changed the credits on a few cues.

Only the very beginning, The rest is Hans (and Nathan, I guess).

For those like me who have an easier time conceptualizing *without* parenthetical credits on the tracks, it looks like the OST is this strictly speaking:

1. Oogway's Legacy - HZ
2. Hungry for Lunch - HZ
3. The Power of Chi - HZ, LB
4. The Arrival of Kai - HZ, PM
5. A New Father - HZ, PM
6. The Hall of Heroes - HZ, LB, PM
7. The Legend of Kai - HZ, PM
8. Mei Mei's Ribbon Dance - HZ, LB, NW
9. The Panda Village - HZ, LB
10. Jaded - HZ, LB, PM
11. How to Be a Panda - HZ, LB
12. Portrait of Mom - LB
13. Po Belongs - HZ, LB
14. Kai is Closer - HZ, LB, PM
15. Two Fathers - HZ, LB, PM
16. The Battle of Legends - HZ, LB
17. The Spirit Realm - HZ, LB, PM
18. The Dragon Warrior - HZ, LB
19. Passing the Torch - HZ
20. Father and Son - LB

Just easier to read that way IMO, even if credit is due to Powell and Imagine Dragons. :)

Well there was a mix up, the film website had old credits. Ben was attached to score it but there was a big scheduling conflict and he couldn't make it.

Matthew has been scoring it for a few weeks and is recording very soon, and yes he uses Hans' themes from the first film... :)

lets be honest, the real question ist not, why hans isnt doing all these movies by himself, but why the producers and directors always go directly to rcp (hans). im pretty sure hans isnt ringing at every producers/directors door and asks if he or his guys can score one of their films....

Hans is actually retired composer career little bit. Producers or Directors: Hello Hans? We have a movie Tarzan or Rings or or 13 Hours or Terminator: Genisys or Divergent or Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters
Hans: I have so many composers.. Choose one: Lorne or Benjamin or Tom or.. Rupert Gregson..

I feel that Hans is don't want anymore.. This is sad for me...

Hello!

Could you please tell me if it's possible to use an excerpt (1 minute or 2) from the track "A Dark Knight", included in the soundtrack of the film "The Dark Knight", in a promotional clip, paying for the licensing rights, of course?

I hope this message doesn't offend you! I very much appreciate mr. Zimmer's work!

Just realized that "Eddie jumps the 90m" cue has a different mix on the album than in the movie. In the film there's this great choir section near the end (which works great with everyone standing there with their mouths open). Must've been a last minute addition, a shame really.

Hallo Hans, sein Team und sämtliche Musiker, die mit ihm im Studio oder live arbeiten,

vielen Dank an euch für die bislang überwiegend wundervolle Musik.

Mit dem Live-Konzert in Hamburg ist für mich einer meiner Lebensträume in Erfüllung gegangen. Dies ist für mich ein Grund, bei euch nachzuhaken, ob die Performance der Konzerttournee in absehbarer Zukunft auf CD erscheinen wird? Ich wäre euch allen noch dankbarer dafür!

Norddeutsche Grüße aus Hamburg!
