Studio = Paramount and he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter . I did !!!!!!Balfe never worked for Jablonsky =========================================<br><br>By "worked for Jablonsky" I meant he worked ON Jablonsky scores. And as James said, it's all MV/RC anyway. They all know each other and help each other. The first Transformers movie started post-production at the end of 2006. Back then no one knew who Balfe was (aside from the biggest MV/RC fans). His big break arguably came in 2009-2010. Years after the first Transformers movie. So no matter how we spin it, he still came after Jablonsky. Jablonsky is his senior and obviously has much more experience. And we have to respect that. <br><br>That was my point.Should have gotten one for Interstellar, not this."Strength And Honor" is a forerunner to the main theme of King Arthur and also the theme for Transformers!<br><br>I was listening to the soundtrack and unwittingly the music sent me to these two other movies. :Dhe says he was brought in by the studio.<br><br>-----------------------------------------------<br><br>Studio = RCP = Hans Zimmer credit as producer of the score.<br>In end of day is the same thing.
Maybe a honorary in the future.Bayhem - your wrong on a couple of points . Balfe never worked for Jablonsky .In a recent podcast he was asked about Transformers and he says he was brought in by the studio.seems the same with the lastest Film also.its pretty obvious the temp for the end is 13 Hours also.A "spanish" score. This is great!An Oscar (or at lease a nomination) for Dunkirk or Blade Runner ; it would be great from the academy to reward this kind of score. In the last decade, only Gravity had also this kind of """""sound desing""""""" score.I think you're forgetting that Balfe also ghostwrote The Lord of the Rings<br>==================================<br><br>Hahaha, but of course! Howard Shore and John Williams are actually Balfe alter-egos. He's actually 155 years old and he's solely responsible for all of these iconic scores. Hell, I heard he did some additional work on Psycho as well. And Gone with the Wind. lol!<br><br><br>Now, let me say something else in regards to the claim that Balfe did this score. All kidding aside, it would've (I guess...) made sense to make such a claim if this score was done by someone UNtested. But this is Jablonsky we're talking! He's one of Balfe's mentors. Look back and you'll see that Balfe started working not only on Zimmer scores, but on Jablonsky scores as well.<br><br>So yes, Balfe is good and all, but let's not act as if he's "the greatest in the world". And let's respect and NOT undermine the more senior MV/RC composers who gave the guy a shot. Thank you.
If he does I hope it's not for Dunkirk.Lynk, you should be able to just type the individual times into a column or row in Excel, select them all and the sum will be given at the bottom. Alternatively I use this sometimes: calculator. net/time-calculator<br><br>Also...HOOOOOOOOOOOLY shit that last track. My entire mouth just filled with saliva. :O@Kusi<br><br>Each time Film Music Reporter or similar websites reveal full album details I see individual track lengths but usually total running time is not provided. I am often curious to find out what the total running time is. It is fairly straightforward to do the math myself, of course, but it takes time. What I am looking for is some web service, Excel template/formula or whatever quick and easy-to-use tool one can suggest that allows me to type in individual track-lengths and get the total running times as the output.Based on what you'd like to calculate it? MP3, CD....?jaa. but i think he will never get his second oscar...:-(
Yes! I Finally found the booklet credits for Blade Runner 2049:<br><br>Original score by<br>HANS ZIMMER<br>BENJAMIN WALLFISCH<br><br>Music editors <br>CLINT BENNETT<br>RYAN RUBIN<br><br>Music production services<br>STEVEN KOFSKY<br><br>Synth programming<br>HANS ZIMMER<br><br>Synth design<br>HOWARD SCARR<br><br>Vocalist<br>AVI KAPLAN<br><br>Exotic instruments<br>CHAS SMITH<br><br>Cello, vocals<br>TRISTAN SCHULZE<br><br>Cello <br>SIMONE VITUCCI<br><br>Guitars<br>OWEN GURRY<br><br>Technical score engineer<br>CHUCK CHOI<br><br>Digital instrument design<br>MARK WHERRY<br><br>Sampling team<br>TAUREES HABIB<br>RAUL VEGA<br><br>Score techincal assistants<br>MAX SANDLER<br>NATE UNDERKUFFLER<br><br>Score mastering by<br>ALAN MEYERSON<br><br>Score mastering assistant<br>FOREST CHRISTENSON<br><br>Score mixed at<br>REMOTE CONTROL PRODUCTIONS, Santa Monica, California<br><br>Studio manager for Remote Control Productions<br>SHALINI SINGH<br><br>Assistant to Hans Zimmer<br>CYNTHIA PARK<br><br>TEARS IN THE RAIN<br><br>Written by<br>EVANGHELOS PAPATHANASSIOU (VANGELIS)<br><br>Here's the link:<br>https://ia601507.us.archive.org/21/items/mbid-149daaf9-5c9d- 47d9-a452-d732122da496/mbid-149daaf9-5c9d-47d9-a452-d732122d a496-18376707127.jpgAnd I thought Varese Sarabande will pick this one up. Whatever happened to those guys I will never know.<br><br>A Little off-topic here but might I ask if there any computer geeks around here who know how I can calculate total duration of albums using Excel or some simple web service (other than Soundtrack Collector)?Penka Kouneva I also the orchestrator on this one. Maybe it's a faulty credit?"House Call v1-23697 - Penka Kouneva, BMI" This is the copyright claim I found on a compilation video I made of Jablonsky's music. This claim is where "Vocation" from IDEA plays. Can someone please explain this? I have not been able to find this track Jablonsky (I guess?) ripped off.Edmund ! For YOU !! lol

Sound Byte: Meet the Composer - Disney Epic Mickey's Jim Dooley

James (or Jim) Dooley is an Emmy-award-winning composer who graduated from New York University. (He was also a speaker at this year's PAX, which you can read about here.) In 1999, he began working with Hans Zimmer on Gladiator, which then led him to work on movies such as The Da Vinci Code, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, King Arthur, and many more. In addition to having an extensive background in film, he's a prolific composer in other forms of media, including television, where in 2008 he won an Emmy for his music in the hit ABC series Pushing Daisies. When it comes to video games, though, he has worked on Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, a couple of SOCOM games, and, of course, Disney Epic Mickey. Watch our interview below to find out what kinds of challenges he faced when it came to reimagining some of Disney's most famous tunes.

Matthew Margeson Gets In Line With The Sky

I started banging around on an old organ that my parents had in the house when I was about 4 years old or so. My parents thought it would be a good idea to start some lessons very soon after. When I turned 5... they hired this old, old man to come to our house every week and give lessons. I think he was maybe 72 years old or so when he started teaching me, and he actually was my private instructor for the next 12 years.

Throughout my youth, I was very much involved in musical theatre. I was involved in a lot of community theatre, doing musical direction for performances. During this time, I also had a little part-time job working at a small local video rental store. Because there was very little foot traffic at the store - the employees basically just hung around all day and watched films. I think both of these situations were a good recipe for me to have a strong interest in film music. I watched a lot of movies, I played a lot of music, and had quite a bit of experience performing music live to people acting on stage.

I studied Film Scoring & Composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and shortly after - drove out to Los Angeles. That, and a little bit of working with the right people in LA kind of brings us to where I am today.

Hans Zimmer to join Hollywood Walk Of Fame -UPDATED-



Hans Zimmer is to be honoured with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, organizers announced Thursday.

The 53-year-old will receive star number 2426 at an unveiling ceremony tomorrow. Guests are to include director Christopher Nolan, whose recent films Inception, The Dark Knight and Batman Begins are all accompanied by Zimmer's music.

The composer said he would dedicate his star to agent Ronni Chasen who was murdered in Hollywood last month, shot in her car on Sunset Boulevard. Chasen had represented Zimmer for many years.

Hans Zimmer was nominated twice for a Grammy this week, for his work on Sherlock Holmes and Inception.
