His artist name was Junkie long before film scoring.

Funny thing is when he scored Dutch films he went with his real name Tom (though he's named Antonius Bernardus Johannes Holkenborg lol... remember the Antonius remix in Sherlock 2 ? ;)).

In Hollywood he went with Junkie (not on TDKR though), but he seems to go back toward Holkenborg recently. Now seems to be the transitional phase with the 2 names. I guess in the future he'll be Tom Holkenborg only... :) In the end, I don't matter as long as I know who we're talking about !! :)

Speaking of him and Mad Max, just check his recently posted videos, it's great insight !

And why, here, has he used both?

FYI the music that plays when Furiosa is stabbed during the final chase is in the piece "Immortan", about in the middle.

The piece starts off with the scene after the first chase when they lose the pregnant bride...Then it kicks into Furiosa's stab scene, then some other actiom music I dont remember.

But in case you were looking for that bit to put right before Chapter Doof drops the bass, that's the track....

Well of course he must have - Junkie is a protege of Hans Zimmer....Like all the other composers - Badelt, Jablosnky, Powell, etc. - When they first started their scores sounded similar to Hans' music in terms of orchestration and motifs used...

not to denigrade the man's work, but this doesn't surprise me and I'm fine with that...Junkie will develop his own sound eventually and explore new techniques, just as I'm sure Zimmer tutored him to do....Jesus I remember when both Powell and Jablonsky's scores sounded practicaly the same to Junkie's...And this was a decade ago.

Its always a surprise to see the fact that people / fans / critics / moviegoers / haters actually do not really (REALLY) listen to music. its either somewhat similar or its not and that is the end. the person behind the Hybrid Soldier name said not so long ago that there is zero Hans in this score, nothing...
well, its an interesting thing to say because the score that was released in europe and the version of the movie was maybe a special studio cut but I'm convinced that I heard many-many times the almost ancient Zimmer choir motif...
Hans started to use this signature motif somewhere around crimson tide and since then, everybody in remote control history, I mean everybody used it. also Hans is still today obsessed about it and nobody talks about this. its almost like the famous "danger motif" from Horner. but, yes its true that Hans is in re-invent mode every time, so sometimes its a female choir or sometimes male but fuck, dont bullshit around after 20 years of music.
other then that, yes its Junkie alone but in the end its not only his craft, he borrowed / used directly from HZ in this too.

fits the movie perfectly well. incredibly powerful... the only problem to this soundtrack and you could say that both the movie and the soundtrack have the same flaws no real story (action-like road movie), furiosa and max are the same character, they almost have the same background story. no real need of a theme. They are interesting cues but nothing that truly deserves a melody.
the pursuit cue and the epic cue when furiosa and max are working as one-two punch. But that's pretty much about it.
as a whole, there are many ressemblance between this soundtrack and what zimmer has done since the joker theme. the ostinato motif, the big drum/percs ensemble, the sound design, the heavy guitars/electric strings, the bane theme as well.
it fits the movie very well. it's a good score. i enjoyed the movie even more. it was breath-taking. it's a great flick from Miller. I stayed out of any trailers for a year so it was really fascinating and surprising. The movie cost 150m$ and you can really say "here they really spend that money". Doing almost all the stunts for real at our epoch is challenging. hats off for miller. No cgi heavy movie. I expect a lot more from the second movie story-wise tho.

Yeah I don't think getting "extra stuff" whatever is the problem, people mostly just keep bitching for a not-damaged Quantifiable Connection. The NTFC stuff is mostly resolved at this point, and I wouldn't say the official NTFC track was a demo. It's looking like the track was intentionally mastered the way it was. And I like it.
  Interstellar2015-05-24 14:31:27
Hybrid Soldier
It's not a demo... lol


Anyway, First Handshake, seriously ? It's just a music editing.

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 ! :P
  Interstellar2015-05-24 14:08:45

Alan, 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...
  Chappie2015-05-24 10:26:13

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!
  Interstellar2015-05-24 09:54:59
bro
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.
  Mad Max - Fury Road2015-05-24 05:33:14
MacArthur
I was gonna say the original Composer announced was Hans. does anybody ever pay attention to that
  Interstellar2015-05-24 04:28:47
Alan
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.
  Interstellar2015-05-23 19:06:15
Boldizar
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.

Ds, the ISP is missing quite a bit cue wise.
  Premier Boxing Champions - Hans Zimmer2015-05-22 01:54:12
Agent000
Does anyone know when the score will be available?
  Interstellar2015-05-21 23:58:24
Ds
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 donīt understand your complain...
  Interstellar2015-05-21 23:40:32
Alan
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.

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?

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.

Dear Mr. Zimmer

I am currently studying in my Final year at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, majoring in film composition. For my mini-dissertation I am analysing the developmental characteristics of your film scores. It would benefit my research immensely if I could email you a short questionnaire regarding my work.

Kind Regards

Josh

Brothers in Arms is absolutely incredible!

I don't know how any film score lover can hate that track. Rest of the score maybe but that one track is freaking incredible.
