By the way, it would be good if everyone said who they are mimicking, right?

At least it will be so much easier to judge. ;)



It is required. Some links would also be nice. Like:

I can't believe that. Haven't you seen any of the recent Disney's films? The lion king, for example?

I was thinking about doing something in the vein of Dvor?k's Serenade for Strings--it's one of my favorite pieces of music ever.

that means i'll need talent and inspiration, both of which i need :( :(

To Squirrel:
Yes, but there are only two songs of Elton John in the film. The rest of the music is from Zimmer.

Bloody hell. Call yourselves Musicians.
Hanz Zimmer only composed/co-composed for The Rock; Gladiator ; Pirates of the Carribean; Crimson Tide; Batman Begins; The Peacemaker; Broken Arrow ; Sense of Snow ; the Last Samurai ; The Lion King ; Black Hawk down and those are off the top of my head...

I was considering mimicking Hanz Zimmer but to be honest he so Generic with his own style that its rather easy to pull off. Ive been considering more in the lines of John Williams... But that will be hell on wheels.

Have to see where the inspiration goes.

Damn! Squirrel beat me to it, but i was just gonna brag how i never bothered to watch those films. I'm sure thy're good cos they all made money and cos a lot of talent was involved but they are totally uninteresting to me.

I like teh gay films better. Just off the top of my head "Cosi e la vita". Hope i spelled it right.

Hows about Pearl Harbourl; The Prince of Egypt and Hannibal?

Thing is just as a musician one should be familiar with styles of music and he should thus know the regarded musicians associated with it. Any musician should know Miles Davis, and associate him with Jazz. Or Mozart with classical. Well Filmscores should also be included. The only Exception I can make is probably Modern Pop. Those Guys are here today and Gone tomorrow, but the long lasting ones should be a musicians knowledge ( such as Michael Jackoson etc... ).

But I hear what youre saying and I cant blame you for not seeing movies. It is mostly a waste of time, but you get some fantastic scores out there and some of these flicks are worth watching as a means of escapism and relaxation.

I dont remember the last Time I watched MTV so when people ask me if Ive heard Christine Aguileras new song and I respond with "whose that?" I generally get strange looks. but once again Aguilera aint gonna last nowhere near as long as Elvis, or Jackson or Davis or Mozart.

My thoughts

And drink tea.

Yep, that's right (except for Pirates of the Caribbean, whose soundtrack was made by Klaus Badelt, or another one of these Hans Zimmer proteg?s). He has some good soundtracks, but he is quite generic, having quite a distinct "big orchestral mixed with modern drim beats" style (his best soundtracks are the ones in which he leaves this style, though, like "Driving Miss Daisy" and "Matchstick Men"). I'm mimicking the "big orchestral" style, of course.

I also thought about John Williams. But he is so varied,  it makes it harder. Also, his music is more complex. (hmmm, maybe I should submit two entries? I don't think I'll have time, though)

I know. But he was involved in the composing process, thats why I wrote Co-composer. Seems Media Ventures is taking over the World!

I wouldnt be surprised if the upcoming "Superman" is using Media Ventures for the project. I know its not John Williams composing, and damned if I know why since he set the scene. Anyhow were drifting from the Topic.

You are right, but remember that you can allways say *uck it and do something freakishy different. Anything goes and as long as there is a lot of effort in your work and a little bit of talent it will be worth it and good. Flavours are different cos people are different but good ice-cream is good ice-cream.

Sort of...  :)

PS - I like movies, i just dislike a lot of them. Not cos i'm a genius or cos my time is worth a lot, but because good films make me feel all kinds of things, and bad ones feel like tortue (i dare anyone to watch Dogs of War).

Oops! Sorry, I didn't see you had written "Co-composer", which is arguable too, but since Badelt works with him, let's leave it at that. Anyway, you're right: Media Ventures seems to be taking over the world. Personally, I think Hans Zimmer has made some great stuff (two others came to mind: The Thin Red Line and As Good As It Gets) but I'm getting a little tired of the Media Ventures stuff.

Take "Kingdom of Heaven": Harry Gregson Williams composed a little music, and then filled the film with music from other films (like 13th Warrior, which had a great soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith). I find that disturbing. Also, I didn't like to listen to the same drum loop used in three different films: "The Bourne Identity" (John Powell, I like him though; he must be the best among Zimmer's proteg?s from MV, I think), "Man on Fire" (I don't remember, I think it was H Gregson Williams) and "The Constant Gardener" (Alberto Iglesias, not from MV, but he used the same loop). And the loop wasn't used mixed with many other things (except for the "Bourne Identity").
