WHITE FANG (2CD) by Basil Poledours and Hans Zimmer relesaed by Intrada

WHITE FANG (2CD) by Basil Poledours and Hans Zimmer relesaed by Intrada | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

Wow! Treat for Basil Poledouris AND Hans Zimmer fans! World premiere 2-CD release of both composer's powerful soundtracks for Randal Kleiser filming of Jack London's outdoor boy & wolf tale WHITE FANG, presented by Walt Disney Pictures, starring Ethan Hawke, Klaus Maria Brandauer, James Remar. CD1 offers rich, evocative score by Poledouris, given primary credit in finished film. Stately main theme in major key anchors, while numerous motifs, smaller ideas create multi-layered musical tapestry of turn-of-the-19th-century gold prospecting in Alaska. In contrast are sequences both frightening, tender. Several cues never before heard add depth to impressive score. But there's much more! CD2 offers second score by Hans Zimmer, much of it also featured in film, with completely different thematic material spotlighting composer's then new meld of symphony with synthesizer. Early-ish Zimmer score offers perhaps his largest-scale scoring to that date. Powerful themes, aggressive action, rhythmic adventure, tingling suspense, gentle warmth... it's all here! And there's still more: also find exciting "Bear Attack" co-written by Shirley Walker & Zimmer as well as additional cues by Fiachra Trench. Finally, numerous saloon source cues composed by Poledouris round out lengthy 2-CD package. Newly-mixed and presented in dynamic stereo from both 24-track analog masters (format of choice for Poledouris), 32-track digital masters (format of choice for Zimmer), all vaulted in mint condition at Disney. Beautiful booklet design by Joe Sikoryak includes complete cue assembly & composer details for both scores plus informative notes from Jeff Bond. Two exciting scores from the same movie, available at last! Basil Poledouris conducts his score, recorded in Burbank, Shirley Walker conducts Hans Zimmer's score, recorded at Air-Edel Studios in London. Intrada Special Collection 2-CD release available while quantities and interest remain!

Charlie Chaplin Vs Hans Zimmer & Audible - The Great Dictator Speech (Salvoriz Intro Edit)

The Great Dictator Speech Set to Hans Zimmer's Inception.

I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor, that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone.

Hans Zimmer Uses 'Sherlock Holmes' Soundtrack to Expose Slovakian Villager Musicians | Billboard.biz | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

A musical mystery may get an answer after "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shows" opens on Dec. 16 and Watertower Music releases the soundtrack three days earlier. Having tapped gypsy music from Slovakia-based musicians for part of the "Holmes" score, composer Hans Zimmer hopes the film's the soundtrack can serve as a portal for more music from these undiscovered village musicians.

Hans Zimmer Talks Scoring 'The Dark Knight Rises' & Says He's Not Confirmed For 'Man Of Steel' | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | indieWIRE

Hans Zimmer Talks Scoring 'The Dark Knight Rises' & Says He's Not Confirmed For 'Man Of Steel' | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | indieWIRE | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

During his 27 years in Hollywood, Hans Zimmer has produced hundreds of film scores, sometimes five or six in the span of one year. But what’s interesting about his work is that it’s become more eclectic and undefinable, not less, as his career has progressed. Listening to his more recent work on films such as “Inception” and “Sherlock Holmes,” there are few traces of the synthesizer-heavy material he made his name with in the 1980s, and remarkably, few similarities even between those two recent examples. But even with expectations for his score for “The Dark Knight Rises” looming large over his work for the forthcoming film, Zimmer told The Playlist that he’s not sure how much the score will share in common with its atonal predecessor.

Rory Hopke's curator insight, December 10, 2013 10:30 PM

Zimmer's "experiment" turned into one of my favorite movie soundtracks. So, I'd say it was a success

[Pre-Order Alert!] Man of Steel: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Limited Deluxe Edition) by Hans Zimmer

Amazon.com: Man of Steel: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Limited Deluxe Edition): Hans Zimmer: Music
Christopher Coleman's insight:

Editorial Review at Amazon:

 

Academy Award, Grammy, and Golden Globe-winning composer Hans Zimmer composed the music for this highly anticipated project, joining forces for the first time with director Zack Snyder.


The challenges of creating a Superman score are daunting because Superman is so iconographic, said Snyder. I really feel like what Hans created is perfect. Subtle and stirring, epic and commanding. Honestly, Hans crushed it.


Both the standard and deluxe editions will include the epic track Man of Steel (Hans Original Sketchbook) which clocks in at over 28 minutes long. This exclusive track is performed solely by Zimmer, and allows listeners to experience firsthand his initial experiments with the film's music, which ultimately lay the foundation for the film's final score.


The deluxe edition will be housed in a special embossed steel case, contain 24 score selections, and give fans the ability to access multiple videos showing an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the music.
Those fans who purchase the CD version of the deluxe edition will have the opportunity to download all 24 songs in DTS Headphone: X, which reproduces a cinematic multi-speaker surround sound experience using only the user's headphones. DTS Headphone:X presents a whole new way to hear mobile entertainment over headphones. The technology garnered rave reviews from the likes of The Wall Street Journal, and Cnet, among others at this year s CES convention.


In addition to his orchestral arrangements, Zimmer, no stranger to stepping outside the confines of traditional film scoring, has assembled two unique musical entities to contribute music to Man of Steel. The first, a drum orchestra, which was brought together for the album, is described by soundtrack co-producer Peter Asher as some of the best drummers in the world all playing simultaneously in a space designed for a symphony orchestra using not only rock drum kits but tympani and field drums as well.
The membership of this elite assembly consisists of many of today s top musicians including John JR Robinson, Jason Bonham, Josh Freese, Pharrell Williams, Danny Carey, Satnam Ramgotra, Toss Panos, Jim Keltner, Curt Bisquera, Trevor Lawrence Jr., Matt Chamberlain, Ryeland Allison, Bernie Dresel, Vinnie Colaiuta and Sheila E. Their contribution, under Zimmer's musical direction, creates a towering and powerful musical accompaniment to the film.


Another distinctive group the composer assembled was a gathering of eight of music's finest pedal steel guitarists who play classical string section parts. This collective, consisting of Chas Smith, Marty Rifkin, Skip Edwards, Boo Bernstein, Peter Frieberger, Rick Schmidt, JD Maness, John McClung, was described by Asher as, a uniquely new metallic orchestra added it's own distinct and soaring musical stamp to the soundtrack.

‘Dark Knight Rises’: Hans Zimmer explains Christopher Nolan’s secrecy

‘Dark Knight Rises’: Hans Zimmer explains Christopher Nolan’s secrecy | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

Oscar-winning Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer never likes to repeat himself, even – or perhaps, especially – when he’s writing the score for a sequel. So he’s promising some new twists for his soundtrack for ”The Dark Knight Rises,” the crowning installment of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and the most-anticipated film of this summer.

Evidence of an Iconic Score - Inception

Evidence of an Iconic Score - Inception | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

Earlier today I came across an interesting use of Hans Zimmer's "Time" from the INCEPTION soundtrack. Even earlier this year, I stated that I thought Daft Punk's TRON: LEGACY and Zimmer's INCEPTION were two of the most iconic scores of the last decade. Of course, such a statement could be argued...and definitely was.
 

Having come across this SoundCloud track, I proceeded to share it with the twitterverse and beyond, reasserting the notion that this mash-up of Zimmer's "Time" with Charlie Chaplin's unforgettable and moving speech from THE GREAT DICTATOR, was conclusive evidence that INCEPTION has certainly become iconic - something that exists and is recognized far beyond it's original purpose and intent.

Hans Zimmer is going to have a lot to choose from as he puts together the score for The Dark Knight Rises. Alan Meyerson mixes scores for Zimmer and in a recent interview explained that there’s one suite that has over 4,000 tracks.

 

Warning: the discussion gets a little "blue" at about the 15:00 mark.
