Also, I'm kind of surprised "Transformium" isn't Trapanese. That cue sounds straight out of Tron or Oblivion.Well from his website, and a bunch of Jab ones, but not much detailed yet... Should appear wider at BMI soon... I know Fleming, Trapanese & Shea at least are getting some royalties... Which is quite rare with Jab scores lol...It took me forever to find the links, because I also had no idea what everyone was talking about.  Search "Interstellar Quantifiable Connection" in google.  Go to the link on the Nolanfans website (the thread is called Interstellar's Soundtrack).  Page 139 has some posts with links.So...really the only credits here are the Joseph Trapanese ones. ;)Hans just co-wrote the song... I only credit him when it's used somehow...
Zimmer was in on this one again, huh. I shouldn't even be surprised. :p<br><br>Also, the Imagine Dragons credits...were they really involved with those cues compositionally? Beyond just providing vocals?I don't think Howard Shore could pull off Star Wars any better than Hans could (the awkward bleedthrough from LotR into Revenge of the Sith attests to that).<br><br>Once the torch is passed from Williams, it has to be someone who can carry on with that fast, fun, brassy, insanely complicated, thematically-driven, ORCHESTRAL action style. The closest Shore has ever gotten to Williams' pace is "The Forest River" from Desolation of Smaug, otherwise I feel like he's too heavy and ponderous. Works great in Middle-earth, wouldn't work at all a long long time ago in a galaxy far away.<br><br>Of the others, Giacchino's the most obvious (and realistic) pick. Horner might work, but only if he goes back to his Krull/Willow/Wrath of Khan roots, which seems doubtful these days. Silvestri, yeah, I could see that working. To name some more obscure guys, Joel McNeely or Bruce Broughton would be fantastic. Even more obscure - Robert Folk or Frederic Talgorn. Holy crap, JOHN POWELL!! :O<br><br>There's no shortage of good options (even if some of them are pipe dreams) - but Zimmer would NOT be one of them.Here it is...<br><br>And before any stupid yells "but ? but ? but ?" I simply use all the material I can, in this case FYC & OSTs...Sorry, but Hans Zimmer won't be able to take on Star Wars any time soon (risking lynching by saying that, but as a big-time John Williams fan I must say it). That belongs to John Williams, and if he passes before the new trilogy is finished, I can see Michael Giacchino, James Horner, Alan Silvestri, maybe Howard Shore doing it. I don't think Zimmer's current style could work in Star Wars, especially given his heavy usage of synth instruments.And no static here... Very good Q!! Love this score.
its there on the net! i've got it within 2 mins and listend to it: B E A Utifulllllll!!LolHans Zimmer + Star Wars<br><br>DOES<br>NOT<br>COMPUTEhttps://soundcloud.com/signuls/teaser-star-wars-fan-trailer- audio   <br><br>Above is my fan made Hans Zimmer inspired Star Wars trailer. I hope you all like it and I hope that somehow Hans gets a chance to listen. Even if it is a waste of time! This is in no way an ad, it's more embracing Hans Zimmers music and absorbing it into my own being. Thank youHello all. This is not meant to be one of those macro spam ads. I just know you all are as big of a fan as I am and I want to share my Star Wars- Force Awakens if Hans Zimmer were to write the opening trailer music. https://soundcloud.com/signuls/teaser-star-wars-fan-trailer- audio
Is there any confirmation that (and when) the Illuminated Star Projection Edition will be released in Europe?That would be nice :PHmm.... maybe with some effort, i can "remove" the static.... it's worth a shot like what i've attempted before.Blame Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures for that static issue in the final FYC/Sessions track.But the noise :(((

does anyone no anything bout wat is happing with the score and will the score be in the next trailer


Mike2013-03-15 20:25:46
We'll probably hear ELEMENTS of the score (kinda like for the 3rd and 4th Dark Knight Rises trailers).


Man Of Steel2013-03-17 23:11:38
Got a chance to listen to a little of the score. And it's awesome! Very, VERY different than anything Williams ever did. But still amazing. King Arthur drum cadences against alot of brass bends and electric guitars...yes i did just say electric guitars in a superman score.


d.j2013-03-17 23:18:17
may i ask how did you get two listen to it and where did you get to??


Mike2013-03-18 00:31:47
I would say, d.j., that Man of Steel doesn't know what he's talking about. :)


Man of Steel2013-03-18 20:32:38
I would say i do know what im talking about. Unfortunately i cannot say how Ive heard it cuz i don't want anyone to lose their jobs. D.J simply asked and i told him. You can believe it or not. But when you finally hear it, you'll see my description wasn't wrong.


d.j2013-03-18 20:54:20
man OF steel it's cool just keep us updateed bout what you no bout the score and i have one more ? do you no if they will put wat you heard in the new trailer and do you no when the trailer will come out


Man Of Steel2013-03-19 05:43:39

You make a good point Mike, and it's exactly what I was going to say. The theme is there, whether you like it or not. If it's not the kind of theme you wanted is another matter...

Btw, Tom Holkenberg (Junkie XL) tweeted that the score is finished. This does give Hans plenty of time to do Lone Ranger after all. I guess this means we should defiinitely hear the theme in the next trailer for sure.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-05 21:12:06
Yeah Man of Steel is already "past tense"... :)


Lorne told me they really are working together with Hans on that Bible TV series. And from what he said, he didn't work with HZ at all on Man Of Steel or any other HZ project. I guess that's the first time a big HZ score has no Lorne in 8 years... :O

Lorne has way too many things to carry on !

Oh and Geoff Zanelli has done a little work on Man of Steel. :)


Mike2013-01-05 21:33:46
Have you heard any of MOS Hybrid?


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-05 22:36:20
Nope and just for once I'll try not to hear any SAMPLE before I see the film... :)


MGDrone2013-01-06 01:26:30
So, on Additional Music for MOS we can expect to hear something from Zanelli and Junki XL? Do you know who else is on the project?

I'm excited to hear what they're cooking up for the Bible series. Do my ears deceive me, or is that Lisa Gerrard I hear? (I'm referring to the Youtube video.)


Mike2013-01-06 03:36:13
To that, Hybrid, I say: good luck. :P


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-06 09:05:23
It is Lisa Gerrard... :)

All the music from the trailer is from the show. There's also that big 5 min "Nativity" clip on youtube, with score too (and Lisa)... :)

Mike reply Replies: 9 || 2012-10-23 09:30:59
Something just occurred to me. Perhaps for the Man of Steel score it would be best not to expect a "main theme", instead awaiting multiple "sub-themes". Because in Batman, there's not one theme, strictly speaking, but several.

Either way, I'm excited for what this score might bring, especially considering that Zimmer won't be going for the bass-heavy, percussive Dark Knight approach.


Mike2012-10-23 09:38:10
Errr, excuse the thing about bass heaviness. He never specifically said that.


MGDrone2012-10-23 18:30:48
I hadn't thought of that, but it makes sense. What people should keep in mind is that this Superman is going to be incredibly different from Donner and Reeves' Superman. There's no reason we should expect a theme similar to John Williams' theme. On the same level, yes, but not similar. There's also no reason Hans should try to score this like anyone but himself.

I really can't say what I want the score to sound like since I didn't really get the feel of the movie from the teaser. All I can hope for is that Snyder will give Zimmer free reins and let him score the movie like he knows it should be scored.


Mike2012-10-23 23:19:07
Although I gotta say I wouldn't mind hearing something along the lines of Williams' Krypton theme. They was great stuff!


Bondo2012-10-24 03:34:00
You're not gonna hear anything that sounds like John Williams


Mike2012-10-24 04:27:53
Oh, I know. Just saying.


tomPoland2013-01-04 13:52:31
Superman theme is a must be. Powerfull, beautiful, memorable.
And without ostinatos that RCP people over-use.

"No theme" in Batman had some sense, but this is SUPERMAN, American icon.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-04 14:00:29
What "no theme" in Batman ?

You def ?


I can find PLENTY of themes in Batman.


tomPoland2013-01-04 15:28:54
No Batman theme, lots of minor themes but no direct melody to describe dark knight. There are those two notes, but it's hardly to call it a theme, don't you think?


Mike2013-01-04 20:12:33
Well, Hans considered the two notes to be a theme. Is there a definition of theme you're going by, where these two notes truly don't make the cut?

Le Lombardi from Brazil reply Replies: 5 || 2012-08-14 05:28:44
I can believe that you will not use for just a seconds the theme create by master John Williams. My dear Hans Zimmer it is for just a seconds, the power of this theme is UNIVERSAL and imortal. You know...some themes we will never forget, and stay for the hero, not for the film. ROCKY, STAR WARS, ET, RAMBO, STAR TREK TV, STAR TREK MOVIE, INDIANA JONES, HARRY POTTER, JAWS, TERMINATOR, IMPOSSIBLE MISSION, PLEEEASE MR. ZIMMER use your feelings.

IT IS FOR JUST A FEW SECONDS, THEME FOR SUPERMAN BY JOHN WILLIAMS, JUST FOR A FEW SECONDS, PLEASE.



NTNBaessi2013-01-03 03:55:25
Come on, a score is not a jingle for the character. The theme composed by J. Williams probably will not fit the tone of this new movie. Just get over it and embrace the new...


NTNBaessi2013-01-03 04:01:36
Just watched some videos on Youtube that mix The Dark Knight with the Danny Elfman old score for Batman/Batman Returns. It seems incredibly awkward, does not fitting the movie at all. This is just what could happen if they try to use J. Williams theme in Man of Steel. New franchise, new theme. PLEASE!


Areozz2013-01-03 04:54:44
Hans Zimmer on "The Dark Knight" + Danny Elfman on "Batman"/"Batman Returns" = Hans Zimmer on "Man of Steel"? How the heck does that make any sense? And do you really think that by complaining on an almost official page for RCP will get Hans Zimmer's attention and that he will choose to rework his whole score based solely on some mash-up videos that you saw on YouTube?

fools


Mike2013-01-03 05:06:52
Plus, I believe the score is written already. Wasn't there talk recently of how it was being recorded?


NTNBaessi2013-01-03 05:08:41
Did you actually read what I just wrote? Were did a mention that he should rework his score? I am saying that people should be open to the new sound that he possibly will bring to Man of Steel and not be stuck thinking on Williams score. Le Lombardi from Brazil says that Zimmer should use the classic Superman theme on MOS, which is movie totally different in tone, making the old theme unfitting. And if you use your brain you can clearly make a relation between this situation and what happened with the Batman movies...

The new Man of Steel trailer will premiere in front of The Hobbit on december 14th. Do you think it'll feature brand new music by Zimmer?

Remember the wonderful trailer #3 for The Dark Knight Rises a year ago... :)
