I know that it's supposed to be hush hush, but does anyone know anything about the music to the upcoming movie Interstellar? I heard that the music will be quieter than his recent stuff and that it will try to do stuff he hasn't done before. anybody know anything else? Also, what's the scoop on the possibility of a complete release of the music to the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy?

But that's what he says about every score!

He will go on about how innovative it will be, about the unique approach, etc, and then dollars for donuts it will sound exactly like Inception with a dash of Gravity and a pinch of Da Vinci Code.

I guess if you listen to almost all composers they have a certain style and sound they stay with in. it just depends on how different they can sound within that style/sound. Williams and Goldsmith definitely do it/did it. I guess it depends on whether you like that sound or not. I would say that for the most part that Zimmer is pretty wide ranging within his style/sound, unlike someone like Horner who sound too much like what he has done before for my taste. This is just my opinion and I'm sure many of you prefer the Horner style to the Zimmer style. I much prefer Zimmer's music since Hannibal compared to almost all of his 80's and 90's stuff. IMHO!

Yes! Hans recently decided to quiet writing 'music' and has started to study music and history of film music.

I love when Zimmer haters speak like total idiots. They are so funny (seriously!)

Agreed. Thank God Zimmer will not "start study music and history of film music". Why should he?

Well, I've recently spent another period where I cannot stop listening to his superb Lone Ranger score end to end. It's one of the greats in my opinion. Those scores which are so good that the WHOLE thing has to be heard rather than favourite bits are a special breed to me, and this is one of them. They can say what they like about Hans. For this one alone he's the best! And I have been getting a few recently I missed originally.

Happy to add my thumbs up for the guy when the haters are on the prowl again.

Yeah, Lone Ranger is one of the best things he's done in ages.

I don't hate Hansi. What I hate is the sheer emptiness and the meaninglessness of his 'music'. There is simply not one note of Zimmer (or the employees that write for the man) that will be remembered by anyone in a few years... Although... I do remember his notes ....in my nightmares

Tell that to my cd player. It simply refuses to let the disc out. Nor will my mind allow me to forget any of the tracks, try as I might. I love plenty of other stuff. Just got the second Hobbit soundtrack, and just as I was about to swap the discs.... no, the Zimmer one demanded to be played yet again.

The only respite was yesterday when I was allowed The Big Gundown. But straight after I had to play the LR again. Uncanny...

I've been on a Big Gundown kick lately too. It's a great companion score to Lone Ranger, which I played a ton last summer while on a 3 month long driving gig. It rarely left the truck stereo. Great driving tunes. The William Tell Overture is just unstoppable.

The popularity of Gladiator and Pirates of the Caribbean suggest otherwise. The Pirates theme is probably just as well known as Star Wars, the Raiders March and the James Bond theme.

Nice try though wink
