Balfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>
Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before Dunkirk
Here's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.I hope Dunkirk wins just to make the so-called "reviewers" and those who say it isn't music, more frustrated and annoyed.
@badbu &#128077;<br><br>I honestly don't know how a complete score is going to work. They weren't kidding when they said the music is done like one long track. <br><br>What I understood from a Q&A with Nolan is that they didn't do it the usual way which means there are cues that are cut together / exist as segments. This was done in a different way where to create such cues, they used automation graphs to bring the layers in and out. Very complex. <br><br>One of the reasons why I think this deserves to win so many awards.Well it has officially been nominated. Fingers crossed for the complete score nowyep ahmad! 100% rightThe score is brilliant. It does its purpose very well and it is an essential part of the movie. It's also the most creative of the bunch with the way it was recorded and edited.I'd like Hans to win another Oscar but please, not for this.

A Klaus Badelt Interview : The Promise

The website Aintitcool.com released an interview from composer Klaus Badelt regarding his work on the Chen Kaige's movie.

"(...) What we wanted to do, both the director and me, was to create a film which can be felt by a global audience. That’s actually why he asked me to do it. You must know that Chen Kaige, the director, is maybe here not quite as well known…but in China, he’s a superstar more than any Steven Spielberg is in this country. He’s on TV everyday, he has a very famous actress wife, and wherever I went with him in any restaurant in Beijing, there’s a long line of people waiting for autographs(...)"

Bruce FOWLER in the daylight


Salt Lake Tribune released an article on the famous orchestrator/composer.
"(...)Zimmer composes the music in small segments on computer and sends them to Fowler, who opens the file onto two large computer screens on his desk. The music looks like a complex graph, with colorful bars of varying heights stretching across both screens, signifying different instruments, pitches and dynamics.(...)"

Gladiator the Musical

RIDLEY SCOTT's epic blockbuster GLADIATOR is set to be made into musical staged in London's West End.

The Oscar-winning film, which starred Hollywood hardman RUSSELL CROWE, will be adapted for the stage by WILLIAM NICHOLSON, who wrote the original screenplay.

The original HANS ZIMMER score will be used, but Crowe will not be reprising his role as MAXIMUS DECIMUS MERIDIUS. BRIAN STOKES MITCHELL will take on the part instead.

An associate of producer BRIAN EASTMAN says, "It's a terrific story which, with the right songs, will be a great show."

Crusade against Da Vinci Code has begun

When a film goes before the censors the usual result is that producers are asked to make changes to the images on screen, particularly if the film is of an adult or violent nature. Rarely, if ever, does a film’s soundtrack and score raise the eyebrows of the censors… until now. The producers of The Da Vinci Code, wanting their film to get a 12A rating in the UK, were flabbergasted to find that the BBFC were more than a little unhappy with the sound mix and the level of tension in Hans Zimmer’s score.
