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 Balfeís 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 DunkirkHere'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 now
yep 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.YES HANS!!! The second Oscar is COMMING! :DMesa is a cue in the film and it has to match with what's happening in the scene. <br><br>Blade Runner is an end credits suite which allows the themes to breathe a little. I think the two versions are identical when it comes to pitch.

MOVIESCORE MEDIA/KRONOS RECORDS RELEASES TWO SCORES BY 'MORTAL INSTRUMENTS' COMPOSER ATLI ÷RVARSSON


MovieScore Media/Kronos Records will release two new CDs featuring new film scores by composer Atli ÷rvarsson whose other current films include The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, based on the bestselling books by Cassandra Clare, and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

MovieScore Media/Kronos Records' first release with the composer will be David M. Rosenthalís A Single Shot (2013), which opens theatrically in the USA on September 20, 2013, distributed by Well Go. The film stars Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy and Ted Levine. Based on the novel by Matthew F. Jones, A Single Shot tells the story of John Moss (Rockwell), a hunter whose life goes to hell after killing a girl during a hunting accident. Recorded with a chamber group of musicians from the London Metropolitan Orchestra, ÷rvarssonís music provides low-key suspense for the deadly game of cat-and-mouse between John Moss and his pursuers. The album will feature a special suite featuring the complex atonal and aleatoric parts of the score entitled "The John Moon Variations".

The second release will be the score to the Czech/Slovakian co-production Colette (2013), Milan Cieslarís powerful screen adaptation of A Girl from Antwerp, a novel by Pulitzer Prize nominated author Arnoöt Lustig. Based on the writerís own experiences of several escape attempts from the hell of Auschwitz, the film follows the story of Vili, a Holocaust survivor who shares his memories of Colette, a Belgian Jewess who happened to be his first true love. Elegant and tragic like the main character, ÷rvarssonís score for Colette highlights the composerís more lyrical side we rarely get to hear in his more mainstream commissions. Colette opens theatrically in the Czech Republic on September 12, 2013, and is expected to get international distribution later in the year.

Both albums will be released in September 2013. The digital release date for A Single Shot is September 17, 2013, followed by a physical release date of September 24, 2013. The digital release date for Colette is September 10, 2013, followed by a physical release date of October 8, 2013.
