The guy isn't hired to score the biggest money making films for nothing.

Yep, they're contractually obliged to pay him. smile

According to Hans-Zimmer.com, Atil Orvarsson wrote some additional music for the film.

Awesome! Orvarsson is a terrific composer. Tend to like his stuff a lot more than say Henry Jackman or Lorne Balfe. Can't wait for this score!!!

Jesus Christ!!! Can't Hans Zimmer score ANY film without his sound-alike minions and cronies!??!!
He should change his credit to Music by HANS ZIMMER INCORPORATED!

Yada yada bashing yada. The guy isn't hired to score the biggest money making films for nothing.

That is your argument? Really?

The need of additional material often reeks of re-cuts and a composer already working on another project.

Since Zimmer is also doing THE LONE RANGER he just might not have had the time to finish MAN OF STEEL.

On the other hand, Zimmer loves team work. Also because that way he can attach his name to more projects (and let his factory do the work).

it's ok for a movie to have more than one screenwriter, director, editor, etc. but if it's more than one composer then it's a problem?

more surprised that it's Orvarsson and not Balfe but still looking forward to movie and score

People don't get something, HZ doesn't LIKE to work alone.

He does spend quite some time alone in the darkness to create theme suites, soundscapes, what he calls the "DNA" of a score.

Then, sooner or later, he always tries to have some input from the team, whether it's an add. music just telling him "Or maybe you can have done that differently" or the director giving a go...


And after that becomes the actual teamwork, adapting the DNA to shape the film score, scene by scene... The number of project doesn't really matter. Hans started The Lone Ranger AFTER Man Of Steel was completed.

He's from the rock world, he thinks "band", he has always done music that way, even prior to his film music career.

You won't change it. You should get over it, instead of faking surprise every year & every new project.

Geoff Zanelli also confirmed he did some work on MOS. And IMDb credits Steve Mazzaro & Andrew Kawczynski, who both worked on TDKR, which looks accurate. Howard Scarr, who helped creating the sonic palette of TDK, TDKR, Inception, Angels & Demons, Transformers 2 on the Zebra synth, was on board too for some new sounds. smile

Not an argument Yor, more of a retort. Would rather bang my head against a wall then try to sway all the Zimmer bashers here.

Zimmer seems like a nice guy, certainly successful career wise, and financially I am sure. Artistically, I am not very impressed with him but perhaps Superman needs nothing new or inventive, since it has been done so many times, and so well already. So maybe we cannot expect too much here, and thereby, we will not be disappointed. I am sure we will have the usual action riffs in abundance.

True but what we DONT want in abundance (at least for myself) is a Superman score with nothing but pounding percussion and no recognizable theme. I understand the new approach the the desire to move away from Williams but I dont see the problem with creating a NEW theme. Regardless of what anybody says I didnt hear a theme in the Dark Knight or Dark Knight Rises. I guess I just dont understand the approach of not having a theme these days. Even the Marvel super hero films have themes...and most have their own. Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, etc. But in fairness I will wait until the soundtrack album is in my hand and Ive seen the film before I pass judgement. I suppose in the end its all a matter of taste. I for one was excited about Superman Returns. The fact that Williams themes was reused was neat to me because it was presented in a different way, and it was something recognizable.

If it is I am a bit surprised because it sounds very much like pre-"dark-drones-scores".

Probably this is only a very tiny glimpse of what the score will offer, there are rumors of a very long theme.

If that first piano tune is the theme:
Starting with a bold major fifth in the tradition of a hero's theme, very diatonic, tonally and rhythmically simple contours. That major fifth appears all the time in that music.

The harmonic foundation of the second phrase with the ending on the VI is in the tradition of the
pop-influences in film scores which started in the 80ties. Also chord-connection like the I-IV in the loop.

Have to disagree - if this is Zimmer´s score then I would embrace it. I thought it worked magnificently with the trailer.

WGNBG, I think it is; at least, Hans invited his Twitter followers to give their opinions:



Sorry, I was posting about this in another MoS thread.

It indeed sounds a lot more Zimmer 90s than Zimmer 00s, that's for sure.

yes for one reason I think, it is in major mode in his usual diatonic way when he writes in that tonality.
Zimmer writes extremely diatonic usually,
in the 00s predominantly in minor mode or modal tonalities relative to minor mode
(Dark Knight Trilogy, PiratesotC, Gladiator, Inception, MI II).
I think there is just one movie in the 00s different, Megamind (which is basically like Cool Runnings in terms
of tonalities)

before that he also did that almost all the time (Thin Red Line, Project Peacemaker, The Rock, Crimson Tide), but he wrote a little bit more often in major modes usually using diatonic chord progressions typical for pop-music or in quasi-baroque-diatonic (Cool Runnings, Lion King, NIne Month, MUppets)

I think it fits the suit well and sounds really great (even being a great Williams admirer!)
I just think its not right to compare.
From watching the trailer its a totally different approach!
They made the right choices it seems.
I really loved the trailer too.
