I think I found your special sauce.
Hey @christianhenson. As a previous advocate of old skool "separate-tracks-for-articulations" - have you had a chance to play with the Logic 10.4 articulation mapping thingy? Any thoughts?
Some of my favorite scores you have done are not the big action blockbusters but stuff like Green Card, The Preacher's Wife, It's Complicated, The Holiday & Hidden Figures. I am also a huge fan of Interstellar precisely because the music isn't what the average person would expect a Zimmer sci-fi score to be, yet it still plays a huge part in setting the emotional feel of the film.
I never cease to be amazed at both the sheer volume and diversity of the films and music you are involved with along with the quality and integration of the "little bits" with the film, not the big bombastic bits.
I don't even think Hans sounds like Hans a lot of the time - at least according to what many around here think he sounds like
The score to Rain Man was one of the reasons why I got into this.
Christian, too bad about Infinite Jets but perhaps it's just one of those pedals you need to plug a real guitar into (and Leo) to get the best out of.
I am becoming addicted to this...!
Yup, I guess being kind of called a twat by one my favorite film composers and most listened to in all his variety for, what, 20 years, up there with Williams, Thomas Newman or Newton-Howard is something of, well an honnor ?
As a non native speaking english I was a tad warry my post would be, hum, misunderstood, as I was rather genuily"defending" Mr Henson assertion about the "journey more important than the destination" or "method as essential than the result" and composers trying to sound like the New Bold Zimmer whithout sharing his A to Z knowledge of the craft to achieve such a sound.
BTW, pling plong's The Weather Man never ceased to amaze me.
But hey, that's the Interweb...
Oh, and while I'm disclosing my fanboy side here, to my own disgrace, I must say how much I enjoy Mr Henson vlog : both tone (?) and editing and cinematography and, well, generosity and abundance.
ps : "rant" has not the meaning I thought it had, ahah.Anyway...
And don't forget" Video killed the Radio Stars", when this thing arrived, it was like the Beatles are back, for me it's still in my BEST off with : A Whiter shade of Pale, Satisfaction, I'm not in love, God only knows, Good vibrations, all the Beatles, ELO, Earth Wind and Fire, J Brown, etc...
I have been humming As Good As It Gets since I was 15, one of my favorite or yours!
Driving Miss Daisy and Crimson Tide are permanently lodged in my humming device.
I don't see Hans responding or mentioning the Trevor Horn days much?
We're completely OT here but if you do some research, Mr Zimmer mentionned something like he was ripped off back in the early Buggles days.
Hans Zimmer was in "Video Killed the Radio Star"?! That's hilarious!
Must be friends with Trevor Horn still though as he played with him last year I believe
Some of my very best friends are complete twats...and most the time I’m one, too! So welcome to the club of ludicrous assertions, profoundly unprofound and unproven theories, etc! We are hopefully Monty Python’s “The Pope and Michaelangelo’s” Michaelangelos. Now, there was a twat!
And for the yanks here its pronounced TwAt with a hard A (thats what makes it sound gritty) non of this 'twaaohwt' nonsence you lot say over here in the states.
p.s I love that Hans is a German living in the US and is one of the most British people I know! barring Christian of course who i'm sure literally sweats tea haha
Wait... there's an "a" in twot?
must be silent
Hows the eurorack journey coming along @christianhenson ? Modules like Clouds & Morphagene blow that silly pedal away. And here's something for the gear lust in you https://store.strymon.net/magneto/
